M Ight be Santa Claus, but he wasn't bad AS Santa, was he?
** Done again with Dr. Crabtree, the Nanite Queen, who can assimilate people's knowledge by eating their brains...but gets infected with Sam Sein's stupidity when she tries it on him, and when she eats Christmas Elves' brains she starts unconsciously frolicking everywhere while singing "lolly la!" * AsYouKnow: Averted--one of the major [[RunningGag running gags]] is the comic is that recaps are ''never'' played straight, always {{lampshaded}}, and often framed in a comedic way.

** "Mohkadun" reveals that [[spoiler: The God of Joy, Krig Gaul, was exiled after the destruction of the city. What was he before he was the God of Joy? Apparently a violent barbarian who murdered all of his rivals and took on the name of his tribe in the honor of the winners. The comic hasn't come right out and said it, but the footnotes pretty much confirmed it when he was exiled and his full name was revealed.]]

That's not even what Affably Evil means. K'Z'K is Faux Affably Evil, for instance. And the generalisation was way too broad, as well as one that was bound to become outdated even if it had been true at some point.
* AffablyEvil: EVERY. SINGLE. VILLAIN. Even [[KnightOfCerebus Knights of Cerebus]] like Oasis and KZK have their funny moments.

** For Bun-bun it's Oceans Unmoving (the Holiday Wars arc was centered on him too, but it wasn't really about character development).

[[spoiler: Interestingly, due to time travel weirdness, the Bun-bun we see in Oceans Unmoving turns out to be a younger Bun-bun, ''before'' he meets Torg and Riff.]]

* OurGodsAreGreater: Multiple pantheons have appeared, but the one most central to the story are the gods of Mohkadun. [[{{God}} The One]] created Prozoato and Kozoaku as the gods of creation and destruction respectively. {{God}} empowered one of Prozoato's creations, Khronos, to become the AnthropomorphicPersonification of time to stop Kozoaku from destroying Prozoatu's creations before he is meant to. Khronos empowered several additional mortals into godhood to serve as role models against Kozoaku's influence. It has been heavily implied that [[spoiler:Bun-Bun is actually an AmnesiacGod from this pantheon, the God of Power]]. The gods of Mohkadun vary greatly in magical power, ranging from merely superhuman strength and endurance to the power to cause TimeStandsStill or a massive ZombieApocalypse. They do not age and are very tough, but they ''can'' be killed. But only by an empowered Chaz.

Added DiffLines:
** Some {{Technically Living Zombie}}s appear in the Living Conditions arc, when brain eating bugs disrupt the balance between social skills and scientific genius so badly that the newly created super nerds start acting like zombies.

** The Harry Potter parody features the Goblet of Flameyness, which like the Goblet from the original book, forms a magically binding contract. It thoroughly lampshades the fact that the original story never actually explains how the contract actually enforces itself as it has the wizards start obeying absurd "contracts" with no protest.

* MagicallyBindingContract: Lysinda allied herself with the Strakoi vampires and won a war. The Strakoi decided to "gift" Lysinda with vampiric dominion over the Americas, though this was intended as an exile. They signed a magic contract that forbade Strakoi vampires from entering Lysinda's domain without permission. But now that the new world is better known, [[spoiler:the Strakoi seek to use LoopholeAbuse to claim it from Lysinda and have been quietly wiping out her circle for this reason]].

** Vorpyr vampires, such as those from the Lysinda circle shrivel up and stop moving when they're staked through the heart, but immediately come back to life if you pull the stake out. They MustBeInvited to enter a dwelling and are warded away by holy symbols. Turning a mortal takes a lengthy ritual that involves draining blood out of them over days then having them drink from a sufficiently powerful Vorpyr's blood. ** Vrykolakas vampires are looked down on by other vampires as trashy. They are unaffected by many of the usual weaknesses, but are much easier to kill than Lysinda vampires and are unable to fly (though they are pretty good at jumping). They can turn others into vampires just by draining them dry. Vryko masters can enter a mist form and have total control over their sires, who effectively become little more than extensions of their own minds. The two vryko masters seen like to keep attractive sires of the opposite sex. ** The Strakoistrat are said to be {{Daywalking Vampire}}s who wield powerful magic, but also lack the MindControl powers possessed by the other two types.
