* DisabledLoveInterest: Mia is this for Luthor, and it is implied that she was for quite a few people before him. In fact, between her and Sydney, Mia is not only widely considered to be the most beautiful (and isn't afraid to take advantage of her status as a disabled person to win sympathy points from men she finds attractive), but is also the one vastly more interested in sex and romance. At times, she can act downright slutty, which can be a shock to people expecting a blind girl to be saintly and timid by default. * DreamCrushingInjury: Parodied, alongside many other tropes relating to disability. One day, Mia mentions to her boyfriend having a scar on her forehead from a childhood accident which she doesn't like talking about. Luther immediately imagines a heartbreaking, tearjerking scene of young Mia going blind after some horrible accident, crying for her mother. At the same time, Mia remembers [[spoiler: having walked into a wall and having to get sutures because of it. She was born blind, doesn't mind it, and only doesn't like talking about the accident because it was embarrassing.]]

* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: Subverting this trope to hell and back is practically the webcomic's point. The main character, Mia, is blind, but she is not merely shown as being capable of functioning perfectly well in modern society but as being every bit as capable as any other character in the comic of making funny mistakes, humiliating herself, acting selfishly, playing (and being the occasional subject of) mean jokes, chasing men, acting coquettish, and otherwise ''being a regular person'', with all the good and ''the bad'' that that entails.
