** [[spoiler: Turns out, she is this in real life...and it's deconstructed. She is on a LOT of pills.]]
* CrimeOfSelfDefense: The longest arc in the series thus far involves Jamie getting mugged and his attacker pressing charges when he defends himself. [[spoiler: The situation is eventually resolved quite neatly by Jamie's mugger dying of a drug overdose; because his testimony was the prosecution's only evidence, Jamie can't be brought to court. Much later, however, it is revealed that there's a lot more to the story -- the kid who died wasn't the mugger at all, and the criminal is still at large.]]

* ShaggyDogStory: The entire arc of the comic is one. [[spoiler: Jamie makes a personal crusade out of finding Not-Richard-Knight and doing ''something'' about him, despite being told by several other characters that there's nothing he can reasonably do. He finally finds Not-Richard... just after he's apparently killed himself. Jamie monologues that his plan was to force a HeelFaceTurn on Not-Richard, and Not-Richard suddenly turns out to be just barely alive. Jamie gets him to the hospital and declares that the plan is back on. Then Not-Richard dies in the hospital without regaining consciousness. The end. Jamie accomplished absolutely nothing, and [[LostAesop nor does he seem to have learned anything.]]]] Tailsteak just generally seem to enjoy a surprising anticlimax.

* {{Robosexual}}: Lily is apparently not attracted to either men or women, only [[CargoShip to inanimate objects.]] Presumably for this reason, everyone in the MarySueTopia she has invented are likewise uninterested in sex with other human beings but make liberal use of [[{{Sexbot}} Sexbots]].
