* TheEvilsOfFreeWill: {{Deconstructed}} by the Fae, who Quentyn calls "an object lesson in why God gave all sentient creatures free will". Being unbreakably bound to a code of laws made up by their long-dead creators, most of which no longer make the least bit of sense, has left them all half-mad at best.

* NeverLand: The elves, with an [[ExactWords unpleasant twist]].
to:
* NeverLand: The elves, [[OurElvesAreDifferent elves]], with an [[ExactWords unpleasant twist]].twist]] - due to a goof by a now-reviled elven king (who wanted his people to be able not to die of old age and apparently went to a LiteralGenie for his wish) elves are perpetually young - but not long-lived. They only live to about twenty or so, and then die of 'old age'. The result is that most of the elven territories are inhabited by half-wild children. To make things even worse, it's implied that, as a result, their civilization has gone from being able to match the humans or even the [[TheFairFolk Sidhe]] to something out of ''Lord of the Flies''. Half-elves, although longer-lived, still have much briefer lifespans than humans or Raccoonan - they only get anywhere from ten to twenty years more. There is allegedly an artifact out there somewhere that can fix the problem, but it's missing so it looks like our hero Quentyn has another item to keep an eye out for in his grand quest.

*** Also makes for a more coherent magic system, given that the Rac Cona Daimh are actually manipulating electromagnetic forces.

*** To be fair, he [I]would[/I] have been in trouble if Wildcard wasn't such an impressive weapon -- he'd only expected Mock Tentacles (small aquatic creatures with a single weak tentacle on their backs, said to be a low-budget attempt at a moat monster), and the swamp kraken is several times his size (besides looking a lot like Cthulhu).

* ScheduleSlip: The strip has gone through periods of this. Then in late 2012 Hayes switched to an "updates happen when I get X amount of donations" model.

* AchievementsInIgnorance: The creation of Wildcard was accomplished by three youngsters who had gotten themselves [[DrunkenMaster drunk]] in celebration of Quentyn's becoming a Questor. Once sober, [[WhatDidIDoLastNight none of them had the slightest idea how they did it]]. Neither did certified experts, at least until they break out the [[SufficientlyAnalyzedMagic "Deep Runic Scanner"]] - and [[http://www.rhjunior.com/tales-of-the-questor-0230/ discover]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractal fractal patterns]] for the first time in their universe.

* EldritchAbomination: While not as immune to being [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punched out]] as your average world-ending horror, the [[spoiler:rat-king]] is an absurdly powerful and remarkably intelligent being with only one goal: to feed. Within the comic it's demonstrated as wanting and able to destroy and consume anything and everything with lux. WordOfGod says that includes pretty much anything alive.

* CurbStompBattle: In the one corner, Black Tom, jailer of the Unseelie Fae. In the other, a human boy armed with a pendant that makes him invisible to fairy sight, a monocle that can pierce any glamer, and a toy knife carved of rowan wood.

* UnskilledButStrong: Since so few humans can manipulate lux, their adepts tend to be mostly self-taught. On the other hand, they can put a tremendous amount of energy into their workings, meaning that even their crude luxwork can still be quite dangerous.

* MagicallyBindingContract: The Fae ''must'' follow the codes of conduct their creators bred into them, even though those creators are long dead and most of the "rules" haven't made the least bit of sense for millennia.
