* 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 {{Moe}}, even early in the strip.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Colloquially known as "Chapter 0", this covers the start of the comic when Rodney was still on the team. The Chapter 0 comics are ''very'' different from the current ones, which include the "4-koma/Western" blend "cube" presentation, a heightened focus on comedy rather than any sense of drama, somewhat unpolished art, pre-{{Flanderization}} Largo who was simply an FPS gamer with a few screws loose, and [[WebcomicTime in-story time progression]]; Chapter 0 covers two months of in-universe time. Every Chapter after that covers a ''day.''


Added DiffLines:

** Also PlayedForLaughs when Junko and Largo find a promotional poster for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' and Junko calls Old Snake "cute".
--->'''Largo:''' ''*walks away with a look of complete shock on his face*''

Added DiffLines:

** Ed's jacket changes to reflect an unreleased Playstation model whenever a new one launches in real life. When the comic first started, "[=PS3=]" was printed on the back. When that came out, the text changed to "[=PS4=]". After that one came out, it then changed to "[=PS5=]".

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mondegreen}}: In universe, Largo manages to misconstrue the name of the Witch [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica "Walpurgisnacht"]] with "wall purging knight", and, Largo being Largo, makes no attempt to realize that he had the name completely wrong and accepts "wall purging knight" as an entirely new concept.

** 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 prototype accessory for the brand new... ''PS2.''

->"''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.''"
