* AbortedArc: Played for laughs in the Trabnagian tribe arc. One member of the tribe has an even longer name than normal, whose initials spell out "I will kill you slowly in your sleep" and is heavily implied to be [[CaptainObvious slowly killing off other members of the tribe in their sleep]], while framing another member whose initials spell out "Innocent Scapegoat" for the murders. [[spoiler: He is immediately killed off by Samus in his second appearance, simply because she is annoyed.]]

Sadly, the Metroid-related storyline seems to have petered out after [[spoiler:Samus and Kraid finally killed Mother Brain]]. Instead, Kabutroid has been making a comic-blog based on events in his own life and random musings, etc. A new Zebeth comic does sometimes pop up every few months still, though.

* AuthorFilibuster: Kabutroid frequently uses his AuthorAvatar to rant about how society and the economy is affecting his life and everyone else's lives in general. The rants are usually done in their own comic/episode with the occasional quip from the other characters.

The rants have grown with more frequency to the point where Kabutroid admitted that the site is basically his political ranting blog now with some comics thrown in whenever he has the time.

* FillerStrips: On occasion Kabutroid goes on vacation, or has work issues, or other things interrupt his life, so he makes strips to talk about the vacation or whatever. At first he even illustrated these, but then he realized it took ten times longer to make the filler strips than the normal comic, so eventually the illustrations got phased out. Normally the comic gets paused while these strips are run, although sometimes Kabutroid gets back to the strip only to see that time has passed in the strip as well. HilarityEnsues.

** Kabutroid will also make filler strips that consist of him ranting about his life and preaching about the state of the economy and how it affects everyone that are not rich.

* ScheduleSlip: Sadly, Kabutroid has been busy with RealLife more often than not lately, which results in perhaps three or four updates a month.

** The pause button rarely works as intended, meaning the characters often keep doing what they were doing when Kabutroid tries to use it.

[[http://www.zebeth.com/planetzebeth/index.html Planet Zebeth]] is a SpriteComic that revolves around the adventures of Samus, Kraid, Ridley, and other characters from the original ''{{Metroid}}'' for the NES. The story takes place InMediasRes of the first game... kind of. [[AuthorAvatar Kabutroid]], a cross between a Metroid and and a Kabutops from ''Pokémon'', has uploaded the main characters (and a slew of "enemy" characters) to Planet Zebeth, a planet like Zebes in appearance but not in layout. Samus and her previous antagonists, Kraid and Ridley, now spend most of their time looking for powerups, booze, and generally goofing off.

Some other recurring characters include "Boxy and Unspawny," a pair of normal enemies where one is trapped in a box and the other is half-spawned on the outside of the box. [[FateWorseThanDeath Their only wish is to die.]] There is also "Gronky," a sprite glitch that Crocomire Hunter tries to keep as a pet, and the Metroid Queen, Ophelia, who was taken from [=ZR388=], (the Zebeth version of [=SR388=] from ''Metroid II:Return of Samus''), and serves as Ridley's bouncer.

* '''The "Crocomire Hunter"''': Loosely based on [[Series/CrocodileHunter Steve Irwin]], the Crocomire Hunter is a sprite of Simon Belmont from ''{{Castlevania}}'' who tries to protect the poor defenseless natives of Zebeth. Since Samus is on the planet, this job is one of the hardest there is. The Crocomire Hunter has spawned [[WildlifeCommentarySpoof his own sub-series]] which has him wrestling different creatures from ''Metroid'' and other NES and SNES games. These escapades usually end painfully for the poor guy.
