** Hereti Corps's occult division discovered that most forms of magic start weakening as you get further and further from Earth's atmosphere.

** Hereti Corps's occult division discovered that most forms of magic start weakening as you get further and further from Earth's atmosphere. Magical objects that can store power internally, like Chaz, can last a bit longer, but still eventually require new sustenance.

* AntiMagic: A plant-based demon Torg calls Captain Botanical had a magic flower that negated all magic that came too close to it. Gwynn chooses to weaponize it herself as insurance against King Farahn and K'Z'K, due to the fact that her BlackMagic [[spoiler:is based on a doubly indirect case of PowersViaPossession]].

--> '''Torg:''' Alright, we'll need some of the townsfolk to [[VideoGame/WarcraftII chop down trees, mine for gold]], and [[TotalAnnihilation set up solar collectors]] in case we need to build more troops. Do we have any dragons yet?

* VampireVords: Averted with the Vorpyr and Vrykolakas, while the Strakoi are a variation - their dialogue replaces 'th' with 'z', but also unusually replaces 'w' with 'u'.

* DrivingQuestion: It's far from the only plot thread in the comic, but probably the biggest is "What is the real nature of Oasis?" (and, ultimately, can Torg and Zoe ever be free of the threat from her).
** A subtler one is "Why does Hereti-Corp want Oasis so badly?", given that (as several characters point out over the years) though she is a valuable immortal assassin, ''so is Kusari'' who they ''already'' have.



** Even the Research & Development Wars were foreshadowed all the way back at the Clonegressie arc, during 28 Geeks Later. Although the boss's speech implies they are going on at the time, they don't become central until years later.

** At the end of the "Dangerous Days Ahead" storyline [[http://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?chapter=30#2002-08-02 way back in 2002]], Dr Schlock (who had briefly been forced to work for Hereti-Corp at the time) told Torg he only vaguely knew that Hereti-Corp needed to track Oasis in relation to the location of Dr Steve's base. In 2008, when [[spoiler:Dr Schlock has taken over Hereti-Corp, he unveils his "Schlock Triangle" plan]]. At first this seems to be unrelated, but finally in 2017 it is revealed that it was the culmination of the same plan, and it's explained why this was so important: [[spoiler:to use triangulation of the signals to find the location of Oasis' real form in orbit]].

Added DiffLines:

** The storylines "Falling" and "The Heavens and the Earth" are one Wham Comic after another, as they finally reveal the truth behind the much-speculated questions of the nature of Oasis and Kusari, the latter's identity, Dr Schlock's Triangle plan, and much more.

** During the second K'Z'K plot, Gwyn's visions are packed ''full'' of foreshadowing. [[spoiler:Oasis is the puppet. The four fiery pillars are her hair, which foreshadows her pyrokinesis. This immediately precedes Vision!Zoe burning alive, which Oasis later does to her. Riff as a juggler being juggled by (not juggling) three numbered pins, followed by Sasha wearing a three shirt: the pins are his girlfriends, who are playing him for outside groups (Monica for the Cult of K'Z'K, Sasha for Hereti-Corp, the missing pin is either Gwyn or unknown).]] And her visions give her the clues she needs to defeat K'Z'K.

* BodyCountCompetition: Between Torg, Gwynn, and Riff while killing zombies. There is also an unofficial one by fans who keep kill counts for the characters.

* BreakingTheFellowship: Riff's friendship with Torg and Zoe is utterly destroyed when Riff [[spoiler:hurts Sam due to Sam being a vampire]]. Torg initially decides to banish him, but then decides that Riff's tech expertise is too important in the fight against Hereti Corp. So instead, he gives Riff a death threat, puts him in charge, and leaves the group with Zoe. Bunbun then references the trope, saying that without the combination of Riff's tech ''and'' Torg's leadership, they are all doomed. Riff ultimately proves Bunbun right by becoming CommanderContrarian, and drives everyone else away with his callous and impulsive leadership.
