* {{Expy}}: L. H. Franzibald appears to be some unholy combination of [[CtrlAltDel Tim Buckley]] and either Creator/LRonHubbard (creator of Scientology) or R. A. Salvatore (creator of Drizz't)-- mostly Tim (and yes it's based on an outfit he wore, sunglasses and all).

Added DiffLines:

* FourthWallPortrait: Gabe and Tycho look almost nothing like their real-life alter egos. In "[[https://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/04/02 Perhaps Too Real]]", Gabe tried to update the strip with a more detailed look, resulting in grotesque caricatures of Mike and Jerry.

* LiterallyPrizedPossession: Early strips had a RunningGag where Tyco and Gabe would steal a Pacman watch from one another (which served as shorthand for which of them needed to get even with the other this time).
