* [[DistinguishedGentlemansPipe Distinguished Gentlewoman's Pipe]]: Lovelace. Lovelace smokes like a steam engine, invariably from a pipe. Her combination of nobility and genius tends to create a general "I'm better than you" demeanour.

* UranusIsShowing: A footnote to "User Experience" states that "generations of sniggering schoolchildren have probably left Uranus feeling that on the whole it was better off as George."

* AsciiArt: In a desperate [[spoiler: but successful]] attempt to stop Babbage and Queen Victoria from [[ItMakesSenseInContext kicking the crap out of each other]], Lovelace gets the Analytical Engine to generate an ASCII picture of a kitten.

* CrapSackWorld: While the Pocket Universe itself isn't quite 100% this trope, a lot of the things associated with one can definitely be seen throughout the comic. For example, [[QueenVicky The Queen]] of all people, is portrayed as an [[TheDitz ditzy and clueless]] ruler with a plan to take over the world, ''every'' street musician on Earth are secretly evil(thanks to Babbage's hatred against them), [[OurVampiresAreDifferent VAMPIRE POETS]](not a joke!) are running amuck, the time-space continuum is screwed up '''very much''' and almost everybody is a [[{{Jerkass}} jerk]] or an intellectual [[UpperClassTwit twit]]. And the ones who aren't usually are only there for a [[HistoricalInJoke Historical In- Joke]]/[[ButtMonkey Butt Monkey]] cameo appearance.
** However though, all of this can be simply be there thanks to [[RuleOfFunny Rule Of Funny]], and the whole webcomic itself is based on the 'what could of been' friendship of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage making it more of a [[AWorldHalfFull A World Half Full]].
** The recent graphic novel version of the comics manages to make them a little bit more [[LighterAndSofter nicer and cleaner]] than their earlier online counterparts.

* PoliceAreUseless: For a odd reason, why are Lovelace and Babbage the only ones doing actual crime-fighting? This was even discussed InUniverse by The Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel(founder of the modern British police force) in the third part of "The Organist"!
