* FanNickname: One of Medusa's hair snakes has been dubbed Sneaky Snake because it tends to eat things Medusa's holding before she has time to react.



* ScheduleSlip: Quite often, for various reasons going from sickness to being busy at conventions or simply working on particularly hard/big post.



* WriteWhoYouKnow: ''Oh good grief.'' The author, Jake, is a main character, along with his niece, Marah, [[spoiler:at least until she's killed off.]] Her mother, Jake's sister, has a supporting role, along with several of his housemates, [[spoiler:one of which loses an arm in the CerebusSyndrome incident]].

* ForgottenFallenFriend: The amount of times [[spoiler:Mara]] has been mentioned since "Home" can be counted on one hand.



* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:The Prince gets away with absolutely everything. The only thing that ends up happening to him is that he gets a slightly bruised ego, but he's still the ruler of Yeld, so countless innocent people are going to be oppressed. Not to mention the whole ''killing Mara'' thing.]]

to:

* InspirationalMartyr: As [[spoiler: the green mermaid]] says, [[spoiler: Marah's]] death fighting the prince serves as proof to the people of Yeld that living in a cruel land under an evil prince doesn't excuse their actions.

The only thing that ends up happening to him is that he gets a slightly bruised ego, but he's still the ruler of Yeld, so countless innocent people are going to be oppressed. Not to mention the whole ''killing Mara'' thing. Later, however, her death is shown to have lasting consequences to his reign.]]



* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: The mermaids from the medusa's backstory are real assholes.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Medusa's species ([[spoiler:Yeld's equivalent of an hydra]]) life cycle and biology are kind of weird. [[spoiler:To begin with, they share their intellect with their snakes. The human body deliberately invokes cuteness as a defense mechanism. As they grow up, it is progressively discarded for a giant snake body. In the process, hydras keep memories and sapience, but lose emotions and feelings]]. If they need a male partner or not to reproduce is not clear.

* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: The mermaids from They smoke, can use "the magic of their pure hearts" to grow legs, and are, at least initially, dicks. But the medusa's backstory are real assholes.
green one ends up getting a lot of CharacterDevelopment.

As they grow up, it is progressively discarded for a giant snake body. In the process, hydras keep memories and sapience, but lose emotions and feelings]]. If they need a male partner or not to reproduce is not clear.left deliberately ambiguous. [[spoiler: And while they normally biologically expire rather early, they can sustain their existence practically forever... [[OffingTheOffspring if they eat right]].]]



* PornStash: Gee, it almost looks like Jake doesn't want anyone to see what's in the box labeled 'XXX'...



* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Generally averted. Played straight with Medusa's mother snake hair. [[spoiler: The eventual fate of ''all'' hydrae is to have their morals shrivel up and die with the rest of them, until only the snakes remain.]]

* TalkingToTheDead: In times of stress, Modest likes to talk to [[spoiler: an imaginary Marah. However, it turns out that it was ''actually'' the snake inside of her starting to take over.]]



* WeirdnessCensor: Marah's mother completely ignores the fact that the Medusa's, well, the Medusa.
* WasOnceAMan: It's hinted that [[spoiler:the chainsaw unicorn]] used to be a boy from our world who got trapped in Yeld.

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: [[spoiler:Mara's death]] rivals the death of [[DraconiaChronicles Gaia]] in terms of abruptness, pointlessness, unnecessary meanspiritedness, and serving absolutely no point other than shock value.
