* CultureJustifiesAnything: Mr Blanks attitude towards his monstrous actions and betrayals in his quest to restore the original Ninja Mafia, including [[spoiler: tricking Sam into taking the role as emperor, planning to murder him once a heir is chosen, and killing his former bestfriend Mr Black]]. He refuses to accept the idea that the ideals and traditions he was raised and trained to uphold were what they actually were: a form of social control set in place by a dynasty of inbred nobles to prevent anyone to ascend by their own skill and talents.

* AnArmAndALeg: Mr X has lost both his arms in the course of duty, one to Mr Y back when Sam had them fight eachother to keep them busy, and the other during the assault of Mr Sin's Buddy Bear factory.



** A few leaders in [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Committee]] started out this way. They haven't ascended that much though.

to:

** A few leaders in [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Committee]] started out this way. They haven't ascended that much though. The most notable is Keller, the leader of the Cyborg Mafia. The Cyborg Mafia started out as a one-shot joke early on in the comic (a Mafia Ninja complains that he should have joined the Cyborg Mafia instead).
** Rikk Estoban started out as a parody of needlessly grim and edgy indie cartoonists during a storyarc about Fuzzy hiring him to produce a Skull Panda comic, and would end up becoming a recurring character, even in the newer comics that have moved away from gag-a-day humor. His last appearance was as the poster celebrity for an anti-vampire group that opposed the newly exposed vampires (Rikk doesnt like that the vampires are grimmer than he is). Skull Panda itself also qualifies.



* CerebusRetcon: Volume 6 had a storyarc showing all the serious stuff that was occuring back in the comics more comedic days, such as Candice's father being killed, Hazel and Brain's feud with the Ninja Mafia, and the events that led up to Sam crashing the taxi.



* DespairEventHorizon: Sam hits this by the end of ''Crossed Wires'' due to [[spoiler: Fuzzy abandoning them to join back up with Hazel, Hazel getting the final code to the Pits location, and Brain having gone unhinged and disappeared, which increases the risk of him exposing Sam's secret about not being the legitimate Ninja Mafia leader to the world, which would destroy all he's worked for]]



* GuestStrip: There are occasionally [= O-GAWDs =] (Obligatory Guest Artist Webcomic Duration), week-long sessions of ''Sam and Fuzzy'' strips drawn by a variety of other artists, such as ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'' 's Jeph Jacques, or ''Webcomic/WastedTalent'' 's Angela Melick.

Melick, usually after a long story arc concludes.



* KavorkaMan: Sam, while not exactly ugly, is rather dorky and awkward, especially back before the NMS days. Despite this, he's managed to land several very attractive girlfriends over the comics run.



* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: Hart!Brain achieves one of these by absorbing the core at the heart of the Robot Factory. The dialogue implies that whatever was powering the core was really the same substance Brain and Hart are made of]]



* OldShame: In-universe, Rikk Estoban hired Fuzzy to reclaim a stolen painting by an obscure artist named David Williams. The painting in question is cheerful and borders on TastesLikeDiabetes, making it a mystery of why Estoban would even want it. Sure enough, Fuzzy eventually figures out that the painting is an old work back before Estoban established his grimdark persona, and David Williams is his real name. The only evidence of that period is the painting itself and a newspaper clip from an old art show where Williams work was panned by critics.



* ShapeShifterDefaultForm: The shapeshifter-for-hire Jesse Star normally appears as a voluptuous blond woman, but unusually, this is not her true from; she's actually a kind of giant slug, which she reverts to in direct sunlight. That said, she "identifies" as her human form, and her true form has never actually been shown in the comic.



* TakeThat: Edwin is a walking TakeThat to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' franchise.

* TakeThat: Edwin is a walking TakeThat to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' franchise. More specifically, it's bizarre concept of romance.



* UniwttingInstigatorOfDoom: Sam is this for the original Ninja Mafia and Getrude especially. His unknowing involvement pretty much destroyed her life. He got the college scholarship she wanted (that he wasnt able to keep anyway), accidently ruined her college career by destroying her term projects while he was almost comatose from sleep deprivation (she held her computer disks too close to a box of magnets he was carrying around), ruined her chances to impress the Ninja Council by making her late to a martial arts competition (Fuzzy had stuffed the taxi wheels with drugs), spilled coffee on some invaluable ancient ninja texts when she bumped into him, and seemingly destroyed the Ninja Mafia by wiping out the council.

Added DiffLines:

*ShutUpKirk: Sam eventually tries to shut down Dev by telling her that he's sick of people invoking HeWhoFightsMonsters to criticize his actions, and that [[spoiler: it's foolish to insist that he not take control of the Pit away from obviously corrupt and incompetent people when there's no apparent way to TakeAThirdOption.]]

*MoodWhiplash: Usually intentional; the strip often uses humor to hide the fact that some horrible twist is incoming.

** Mr Ackerman during the X-Press Taxi days of the strip, despite being somewhat loopy from old age and drug use, he only asks that Sam pulls his weight with the company, something that Sams neurotic personality, social awkwardness and tendency to find himself in wacky hijinx isnt well suited for. This is actually a major plot point early on, as part of what kicks off the larger story arcs is Sam getting fired from his job due to crashing his taxi while being pursued by the Ninja Mafia after taking on one of Carlyle's delivery jobs.

** This seems to be the case for Unit 01, ruler of Megalopolis 01 and robot representative on the Committee. Unit 01 allegedly killed and replaced its creator, the mysterious human computer expert who created it, and the robot creations it regularly cranks out of its factory can be a tad...eccentric. [[spoiler: The fact that Unit 01 is really the result of a merger between a powerful AI and the brain imprint of Mr. Sin goes pretty far in explaining these eccentricities.]]
