Added DiffLines:

* LikeParentLikeSpouse: Parodied in a comic which featured various mutations on spousal archetypes. The "spouse who resembles your opposite sex parent" is depicted as being paired with a womanchild / manchild (the women want an affectionate sugar daddy, the men want someone who manages their lives for them).

* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Expressed by many characters, especially the Sphinx. However she does mention they have redeeming qualities in [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page521.html Monsters Playing Poker]]

* IllFatedFlowerbed: {{Exploited|Trope}} in-universe in {{Hell}}: in "[[http://www.viruscomix.com/page518.html Can't Win]]", a damned soul's punishment consists of being put in an area where, no matter what he does, he will always end up enraging a large, violent man who is standing right behind him. The soul figures all he has to do to avoid this is not do or say anything... until the last panel reveals that he's standing on top of said man's flowerbed.

* HeroicComedicSociopath: The Sphynx kills humans all the time, but it's played for laughs. It helps that she seems to dine mainly on [[JerkassVictim Jerkass Victims.]]

* IronicHell: Has been known to play with this one. On one occasion a misfile causes a guy to be signed up for the wrong ironic punishment, which is immediately corrected when [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne he takes offense to being buried in dog feces]] (having always made it a point to clean up after his dog, even if he did kill five people). In another one, Hell's latest tenant frustrates the demon assigned to him for orientation because here, yet again, is some dipshit who thinks a single lifetime of being a dull little guy has given him the guile to outwit millenia-old beings who have honed the craft of eternal suffering; then his attempt to prove his point ends up seriously screwing his pooch.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: The Sphynx, apparently. It's fine for her to kill and eat people since she's not human, whereas a human cannibal is shown to have ended up in Hell. (Her "reasoning" [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page517.html is that she's simply higher on the food chain]]. Of course, the Sphynx isn't actually dead yet.

Added DiffLines:

* CerebusSyndrome: The comic's gotten far less lighthearted and more serious as it went on. Nowadays it is rare to see the campy style of the early comics.

* {{Demonization}}: Apparently, MargaretThatcher is a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] who is [[SincerityMode obsessed with nuclear weapons]]. UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, on the other hand, prefers to express himself through [[VillainSong freestyle rap]]. The joke being that both were run through an "exaggeration engine" thus apparently explaining their grotesque forms and bizarre behavior... only to be revealed that said engine wasn't even turned on, which only somewhat destroys the point.
