* JailBait: In a very early strip Rayne once unknowingly slept with a high school girl he picked up at a bar. When the mother found out she tried to press charges but the judge ended up dismissing the case on the grounds that her daughter had used a fake ID to enter a bar so Rayne could not reasonably be expected to know she was underage.

The main character is the incredibly promiscuous Rayne, who, if you were to judge lecherousness on a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest a human could possibly be, would probably hit somewhere [[BrokeTheRatingScale around a twenty-three]]. Throw in a lot of IdiotHero, a few dashes of {{Manchild}} (with a few hints of PsychopathicManchild), and a lot of JerkAss and you will have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Rayne, although there are many occasions where he shows greater depths behind the intentionally and unapologetically shallow face he presents to the world.

* CallingTheOldManOut: Mick is doing this to his mother over [[spoiler: her place in the murder of his father/her husband.]]

* FutureLoser: Subverted. Rayne is shown a vision of how he ends up as an old man. It shows him sitting by a fireplace, alone, with just a servant tending him. But then the story is more fleshed out and we see [[spoiler: Rayne is stupidly well-off, and he shows nothing but the utmost hospitality and generosity to his old friends, their families, and his own niece.]] About the only thing that hints at it being played "straight" is [[spoiler: Rayne never had any wife or kids of his own, but then again, probably didn't want either one anyway.]]

* GenerationXerox: Ashley is basically a female 5-year old Rayne. Just without the extreme interest in the opposite sex (which is good, since, you know, FIVE). She's shown to have an attention span even shorter than his (though perhaps it's justified, since, again, five years old), and in Rayne's vision of the future, [[spoiler: she's taken his place as company CEO after he retires, matching his business sense as well]].

* StatusQuoIsGod: For major, and more serious events, averted. Played straight with Rayne's [[HilarityEnsues Zany Antics arcs]]. Lampshaded when he has flashbacks to sleeping with a sadomasochist and throws popsicles at a hot girl who tries to talk to him, but Noel expects the "issues" will go away by Monday ([[spoiler: [[PlayingWithATrope and double-subverted]] only to bring it up the next Friday, to find by the last panel that it's an IntercourseWithYou speech]]).

* ForcedMeme: A meta-example. Ryan Sohmer [[http://coelasquid.tumblr.com/post/87617683563/spacetwinks-webcomic-history-ryan-sohmer attempted to get some attention at a panel]] (and exploited it during a petition) by having one of his fans go: ''"Why isn't Ryan Sohmer writing DeadPool?"'' The response from JoeQuesada is the stuff of legend if you're not fond of [[SmallNameBigEgo Ryan]], especially since this move was a rather [[ItsAllAboutMe unprofessional way to grab attention]]:

Sohmer had tried to get a LICD [[AnimatedAdaptation cartoon]] [[ThePilot pilot]] off the ground. He asked $75,000 (half the projected budget, with him footing the other half) from his fans; by the projected deadline, [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/537261515/least-i-could-do-the-pilot around 1,200 backers had donated well over $100,000.]] The pilot can be found on [=YouTube=], albeit unofficially. You can also buy the video on the official iPod/Android app. No word yet on if it's been picked up, however.

One of the three webcomics from the creative team of Ryan Sohmer and Lar [=DeSouza=] (the others being ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' and ''TheGutters''). The award-winning ''[[http://www.leasticoulddo.com Least I Could Do]]'' is mainly a gag-based comic strip (although every month it features a StoryArc or two that last about a week) about the misadventures of a group of longtime 20-something geek friends living in the city. The stories mainly revolve around sex, love, modern life and all things geeky from ''StarWars'' to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' to ''LordOfTheRings'' to {{comic book}}s to video games and back again.

The main character is the incredibly promiscuous Rayne, who, if you were to judge lecherousness on a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest a human could possibly be, would probably hit somewhere [[BrokeTheRatingScale around a twenty-three]]. Throw in a lot of IdiotHero, a few dashes of ManChild (with a few hints of PsychopathicManchild), and a lot of JerkAss and you will have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Rayne, although there are many occasions where he shows greater depths behind the intentionally and unapologetically shallow face he presents to the world.

*** This is putting it mildly. In recent years more and more focus is less on jokes and more on Sohmer using the comic to pitch his theories on how to fix the world.
