* ASimplePlan: No matter how small his actions, Vexxarr always manages to cause large-scale havoc and widespread chaos. A simple observation caused a planet-wide riot with the shlumpoids, while trying to repair his ship pitted him against trigger-happy cabbage AIs. With is DangerouslyGenreSavvy status, it was only a matter of time before he got sick of it and set out to [[LetsGetDangerous intentionally cause as much mayhem as possible]]. [[OhCrap Minionbot is horrified]].

** Vexarr becomes [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy aware of this]] this even before then:



* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Vexxarr's usual high level of [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] can sky-rocket into this occasionally. Usually this is directly proportional to how insane a bad situation has become.[[note]]Considering that every situation is almost ''always'' bad...[[/note]]



* GenreSavvy: Vexxarr has become increasingly savvy about his attempts to find safety, to the point of having a betting pool on how long after encountering anything they would be attacked or ordered to surrender.
-->'''Vexxarr''': Usually by this time we'd hear...
-->'''an alien ship''': [[AC:[[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=012407 Alien vessel, Do not attempt to flee or we will be forced to destroy you...]] ]]
-->'''Vexxarr''': ...alright, fifty-seven seconds. Who had fifty-seven seconds?
-->'''Minionbot''': I had five dollars on fifty-seven but it was under 'Prepare to be assimilated...'



* ICannotSelfTerminate: Vexxarr's robotic 'helpers' actually could, [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=012108 and did]]. Untill Vexxarr got GenreSavvy about it.

* RightInFrontOfMe: Vexxarr runs into the most ''obnoxious'' diagnostics program ''ever'', even though that list includes interactions with Carl and Minionbot; he makes his hate known, bad-mouthing the programmer; since he is ''[[ButtMonkey him]]'', [[GenreSavvy he stops to ask if the programmer is present]] in the room, [[SubvertedTrope only to be answered in the negative]]. He gets as far as being glad his insults would stay unknown, only to remember that [[CosmicPlaything he is Vexxarr]] and asks if the programmer is the ''mother'' of one of the present. [[DoubleSubversion She is]].

-->When you are aboard an [[GhostShip alien construct of uncertain design and purpose]], you touch ''nothing!'' You have [[WhatDoesThisButtonDo no way of knowing if a lever could vent the atmosphere into space]]...if...if a switch could activate [[GrayGoo flesh-eating nanobots!]] Until you have studied ''everything'', you have to assume that this [[MalevolentArchitecture station's sole purpose was to isolate and destroy you personally!]] ''[[DangerouslyGenreSavvy DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!]]''

* XanatosSpeedChess: Vexxarr eventually becomes ''far'' too good at a strange mix between this and IndyPloy, courtesy of a mix of extreme [[{{Gaslighting}} paranoia]], excessive [[TheCynic cynicism]], unfathomable [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] ... and [[CosmicPlaything a long career as the universe's favourite Plaything]]. Often leads to a MomentOfAwesome. Carl is a frequent contributor.

** Rock crabs have rather alien viewpoints on the world, due to being SiliconBasedLife that are a prey species, but do not themselves eat (they passively absorb radiation); this makes them quite naturally cowardly, even though they are NighInvulnerable compared to carbon-based organisms and, in fact, they actively expose themselves to energy weapons or radiation leaks, since these feed them rather than hurt them. Early in the strip, Sid attempts to comfort and protect actual food, like cake and sandwiches, which he sees as being like himself, though he grows out of this -- it's only when he's fairly young and naïve that he does so, and later in the series he has no problem fetching some cake for Vexxarr.

At one point, he also identifies a state of constant terror and paranoia as "being alive," entirely sincerely and innocently.

Added DiffLines:

* HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace: Played with. Normally there's not much different about hyperspace, but during an accident Vexxarr's ship ends up in an alternate dimension-hyperspace dubbed Twee-space where everything is LighterAndFluffier... [[GiantEnemyCrab except for Sid]].


Added DiffLines:

* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Hyperspacing into Twee-space turns almost everything into one. The less cute it was, the more cute it becomes. [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=091415 If it already was cute though...]]

** The repair drones are completely undisturbed by the news they've been boarded by aliens that eat robots, [[OhCrap but fly into panic]] at the news that Vexxarr and Carl worked together on the plan to stop said aliens.
--->'''Alarm:''' Red Alert! All drones to panic stations! Stand by for mayhem and high energy chaos! This is not a drill!
