* EvilerThanThou: Cyrus to Fred the Dread. While Fred the Dread is admittedly a bloodthirsty [=PKer=], he genuinely grinded for levels rather than resort to hacking like Cyrus did. According to Dakilla, he also researched many exploits.

Author Gianna Masetti announced that the comic would be on indefinite hiatus while she dealt with some real life issues back in September 15. Since the issues came about at the same time as a redesign of the website, a lot of the links to individual comics are broken.

Added DiffLines:

* AllMenArePerverts: Ohforf and Darkblade at least, although Ohforf draws the line at Cyborella's borderline aggressive way of coming on to him.


Added DiffLines:

** The Anti-[=PKs=] are generally this too, especially the roleplayers, who nine times out of ten get so immersed that they forget what they are ''really'' supposed to be doing.


Added DiffLines:

* ReallyGetsAround: Cyborella[=/=]Cathy is a very blatant example.


Added DiffLines:

** Darkblade steps into this role when [[http://thenoobcomic.com/comic/216/ Sir Bob returns]], threatening to call a GM on him just because he's killing trolls from a vantage point, while other people who are playing, as Darkblade puts it, "the way that it was meant to be played", are ganged upon and brutalized by the trolls. [[spoiler:Even after getting killed he maintains the attitude.]]

* BolivianArmyEnding: The comic straight up recreates the iconic scene from [[Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid the trope namer]] when Your Name Here and D34dly D34dly storm out of a building to take on a large group of [=PKers=].
* {{Bowdlerize}}: Parodied. When a player named himself Dick Tracy, a GM changed his name to !@%& Tracy (and banned him for a week).
** The Devs briefly introduced a filter to censor all homophobic comments, which rendered D34dly incomprehensible. [[http://thenoobcomic.com/comic/348 It was gay]].

* TwentyBearAsses: Hilariously lampooned in an early strip.strip - Oforf is unhappy with his quest of fetching 5 rat tails, and the level 20 advising him points out that as he advances in level he'll get cooler, more important quests - such as fetching 5 ''wolf'' tails.
