->"''You see, nothing in the real world will ever live up to what I feel inside. I came to terms with that a long time ago... Maybe it's because the feelings I have work only in fantasies, not the real world. That's why I want to be an actress. It's a way to live what I feel, even if it is just part of a story.''"

** When you think about it though it makes some things awkward. Though time passes nowhere near as fast as us for them, the technology around them seems to advance at the same rate as reality. Its often very jarring. Espically when you remember that Ping was introduced as a prototpye accessory for the brand new... PS2

* WhatMeasureisANonCute: Largo theorizes that this is why the Tokyo Police Cataclysm Division is so terrified of {{Magical Girl}}s. They solve their problems with guns, and if that fails [[MoreDakka more guns]]. They're not allowed to kill magical girls, which would ''already'' be one of the most dangerous types of enemy they could face.

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Yuki Sonada]] is revealed to be a Magical Girl, with many of the associated superpowers. While using some of these newfound powers, various injuries in the newfound non-magical sidekick are caused.

* JapaneseHonorifics: Obviously. There is an odd one though; Yuuki (and later Ping) will refer to people as both "mister" and "san" at the same time (ex: Mr. Piro-san). It's unclear if this is a little bit of GratuitousEnglish or some odd translation choice.

* AuthorExistenceFailure: Lampooned alongside the ScheduleSlip [[http://megatokyo.com/strip/874 here]], with Seraphim's advice on how to live longer to actually see the comic conclude.



** In the fifth collection of Megatokyo, Gallagher [=FINALLY=] detailed [[WordOfGod his explanation for this phenomenon]]: "[[http://wikitokyo.org/wiki/What_is_Megatokyo_all_about%3F ...the main theme of Megatokyo is how everyone has different perceptions of the world around them...]]" Everyone sees the world slightly differently. Piro and Largo are on the extreme ends of the scale--Piro only sees "mundane" things (and dismisses the fantastic things as mundane things) and [[CrazyAwesome Largo]] only [[CloudCuckooLander sees "fantastic" things]], and [[GoMadFromTheRevelation comes up with fantastic explanations for the mundane things he sees]]. Everyone else is somewhere else on this scale, nearly always between those two extremes. In this world, there are no {{Muggles}}: Piro can't see Largo's world and Largo can't see Piro's world, and they both think the other is crazy.

* ArtifactTitle: Rodney Caston originally bought the megatokyo.com domain and used Largo as his handle because he was a fan of ''BubblegumCrisis''. The comic is essentially named after its domain name rather than being a ShoutOut.

* SnowMeansLove: [[http://www.megatokyo.com/strip/142 this guest comic "Piro, go to your happy place! Sad girls in snow!"]] The phrase "sad girl in snow" in webcomics was popularized by the strip, deriving simply from the fact that this is something the creator/character Piro draws a lot of. Specifically the link strip is a guest comic by ''Webcomic/MacHall'', lampooning Piro's angst, [[SelfDeprecation self-depreciation]] and fascination with MoeMoe, even early in the strip.
