* LikeADuckTakesToWater: Rina, eventually. It helps that she already knew magic before emerging in a magical world, and that the culture she came from was compatible with Frontera--the characters point out that if she had been frozen during one of the Dark Ages she wouldn't have fared nearly as well.

** Multiple ones to the manga {{Blame}}. Mori's name comes from a minor character in it, an underground realm called "The Cyber-Dungeon" is a direct reference to it and in [[http://dragondoctors.dhscomix.com/archives/comic/ch-12-page-24 this]] comic, the gun's extra flanges that pop out in overload mode are a reference to Killy's GBE gun.

* EnlightenmentSuperpowers: Sarin explicitly says she has these in Chapter 21 when captured by a demon who orders her to work for it, hence why she never throws a fireball or uses other offensive magic. Mind, this doesn't mean she's a ''pacifist'' and can seriously injure or even theoretically kill someone (being an experienced knife-fighter from when she was a kid), but she's vowed to only do so with her own two hands.

* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: [[spoiler: At the end of Chapter 19, all four main character doctors are separated and apparently assassinated; Kili stabbed by her own brainwashed patient with a silver knife, Goro and Aki trapped in a house under a time-acceleration bubble that will turn them to ash in seconds, Sarin shot by a giant disintegrator cannon, and the leader Mori is trapped in a black zone beyond the fourth wall where a demon that preys on ideas starts destroying her past and her viability as a character. Mori's solution is to write a whole new life story for herself, but her skin is still blank, leaving her Albino. She continues to write the other characters out of their predicaments before escaping, but their house is destroyed, Aki and Goro are now twenty years older with a grown daughter, Sarin changes her own appearance permanently, and Aki and Goro are later revealed to have a lot of underlying magical damage causing them to mutate into chimeras.]]

The comic has been published on three different sites: on the author's Website/DeviantArt page -- [[http://oddsquad.deviantart.com/ ~Oddsquad]] -- named after his previous comic; up through the beginning of Chapter 18 on Drunk Duck (now Website/TheDuck), [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/The_Dragon_Doctors/ here]], with occasional strips and progress-strips going back to [=DeviantArt=] when Drunk Duck was down; and [[http://dragondoctors.dhscomix.com/ the current DHSComix site]], started in September 2013 during an extended Drunk Duck outage.

** Sarin's master put him through this as training. The first step of said training was spending a couple years as a tree in a forest.

** Tanica is introduced as an assassin on the team sent to kill Smith. After she is [[BalefulPolymorph accidentally turned into a tree]] during the fight, she ends up as a patient of the Dragon Doctors, and they decide to take turns keeping her company to save her from [[GoMadFromTheIsolation going crazy from lack of social interaction]]. Mori, TheSmartGuy, [[http://dragondoctors.dhscomix.com/archives/comic/ch-3-page-16 decides on his first turn to challenge Tanica to a relaxing game of]] TabletopGame/{{Go}} -- and learns to his discomfiture that Tanica is ''good'' at it. [[spoiler:It is later revealed that Tanica became an assassin specifically to pay off the student loans incurred earning her multiple university degrees]].

* LockedIntoStrangeness: Happens several times. Sarin the wizard's hair is green as a leftover from when she was turned into a tree for years, and Kili's hair has been white ever since she was haunted by a spirit as a child. Kili gets hit with more hair effects later; after becoming a werewolf, her hair adopts a [[WildHair wild style]] and grows so rapidly it is now at perpetual RapunzelHair length.

* TheNudifier: The Equipment Failure spell, which is a rather large beam that destroys anything inorganic (and "unalive") it touches. Useful as a [[spoiler: temporary]] curse against a privacy violating mage, to diffuse a hostage situation, or to disable an attacker. Several other magical effects leave the user nude -- notably [[spoiler: being turned to stone for 2000 years -- the clothing rotted away]] and shape changing (especially werewolf transformations and changing from a tree to a human -- bonus points for the rebirth symbolism involved). In one arc, a temporary nudifying curse turned permanent due to an unrelated effect, leaving its victim with a bigger helping of just desserts than expected.

** Tanica follows this trope in spirit, as she (and Sarin) were both turned into immobile, yet conscious and aware, trees. Sarin found it to be peaceful as she was relatively safe and no longer had to live her rather violent and stressful life, Tanica... takes a lot longer to find any form of peace.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Aki is sweet, gentle, and lighthearted almost all the time ... but every once in a while, [[http://dragondoctors.dhscomix.com/archives/comic/ch-22-page-20 shows the iron faith and determination that underlies that gentleness.]]
-->[[TheRant Speedball:]] Aki is full of love. Some of it is TOUGH love.
