* GasLeakCoverup: As Dave [[GenreSavvy immediately]] [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100218.html predicted]], this is [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100421.html used]] to [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100504.html cover up]] the deaths of the cultists.

* GenreSavvy: Dave, often.
--> '''Dave''': [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100324.html I knew I was not going to like that answer.]]
** Nancy later on realizes she can't Bubble Collapse a Shogoth. She then [[spoiler:changes it into a HumanoidAbomination so that Dave can use his usual thing on her.]]
* GetOut: Delivered [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100826.html here.]]



* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Nancy is bound to David until she understands what his wish was.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Not David but [[spoiler:Delta Green thinks they're dealing with a Cult Leader that sacrificed his cult to bind a EldritchAbomination]]. They're about half right.

* BedmateReveal: On the part of the author to the audience, when David casually tells Shubbie that Nancy kisses differently than she does. This is the first hint that David and Nancy's romance has progressed that far.

This is the first hint that David and Nancy's romance has progressed that far.far (although possibly it was just a callback to [[AMagicContractComesWithAKiss their first kiss]] combined with a bit of deductive reasoning).

* UnwantedHarem: The author has hinted at this. David seems to be accruing one made entirely of {{Eldritch Abomination}}s. It's not really there yet, but some chapter names and Thaxton's DeviantArt gallery give us a peek at what's coming.

* ShoutOut: ShoutOut/OwMySanity A ridiculous number of them, many to Creator/HPLovecraft and things related to his works.
** The webcomic name itself is a shoutout to ''Manga/AhMyGoddess''. It's also a nod to Sanity being a statistic in the ''TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu'' RPG, which ''DeltaGreen'' is a campaign setting for.
** [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100414.html Nice statues]] you've got there.
** Mmm...let's buy a shirt with the [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100120.html mark of Hastur]] on it. Maybe someone will say its name three times.
** David knows better than to buy a house in Dunwich. [[GenreSavvy Smart man]].
** Let's go see ''TheKingInYellow'': [[BlatantLies a comedy in four parts]].
** Dave and Nancy's new house previously belonged to [[Literature/AtTheMountainsOfMadness William Dyer]].
** The Elder Things who wonder how Dave got into Phase Space mention how he reminds them of Randolph Carter.
** The two Elder Things discuss Shubby by quoting lyrics from "[[http://www.lyricsmania.com/six-gun_gorgon_dynamo_lyrics_darkest_of_the_hillside_thickets.html Six Gun Gorgon Dynamo]]", a song by Music/TheDarkestOfTheHillsideThickets about Shub-Niggurath.
** Most people David knows have the last names of Lovecraft characters. [[ReAnimator Nobody called West yet, though.]]
** [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20101126.html See that girl?]] She's a Shoggoth. "Sooo cooool" is their CatchPhrase in ''Webcomic/TheUnspeakableVaultOfDoom''.
** And of course a DeltaGreen cell got involved.
*** [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20101125.html This]] strip likely foreshadows [[{{Ghostapo}} Karotechia]] involvement in the series as well.
** [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20101215.html Shubby's caution]] directly references [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E8SilenceInTheLibrary "Silence in the Library"]] and [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead "Forest of the Dead"]].

* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite what they are, most of the Lovecraftian entities really seem to be more curious about how humans act than interested in eating them. Nancy herself is fairly nice, deciding to help Dave rather than kill him in order to study [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove his desire to be loved]]. The Sleeper is literally enamored of Dave for being kind to frogs and the forest. Shubbie seems genuinely amused by[=/=]interested in Dave and his relationship with Nancy. The only exception to this (so far) is the Shoggoth, and she seems to be more of a wild animal that needs to be trained than genuinely malicious.
* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the MagicalGirlfriend genre in general and ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' in particular

** Colette Pickman [[spoiler: was faking it to infiltrate Dave's house]]. [[http://owmysanity.comicgenesis.com/d/20100827.html Dave calls her on it]] in a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech. He knew she was either tsundere or faking (though he mistook her reason for greed), and didn't want either.
