* NoMouth: Bleen, Shlumpoids, and Rock Crabs. Rock Crabs don't need to eat but it's never explained how Bleen eat all that cake, and in fact it was a bit of a running gag in some of the early strips. Whereas Shlumpoids are apparently [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=021306 such messy eaters]] that the process is always shown just off-screen.
** Not that Vexxarr [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=040105 has any room to complain]] about table manners...
* NonSequiturThud: When Vexxarr attempts to (literally) beat his conscience out of him, he manages a small conversation before saying that there would be fish for dinner and collapsing. Smelling bread when... ''compressed'' for too long is another that crops up from time to time.

* MidBattleTeaBreak: [[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=081705 Vexxarr and the Admiral]] early on - they're more or less just loosing their aggression against one another anyway, as they're utterly incapable of actually ''hurting'' each other.

[[http://www.vexxarr.com/archive.php?seldate=100501 Vexxarr]] is a comedy Sci-Fi webcomic by Hunter Cressall. The initial setup sounds similar to ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': An alien EvilOverlord sends his flunky to conquer Earth, mostly to [[ReassignedToAntarctica get him out of the way]]. However, it plays out quite differently. For starters, the flunky Vexxarr is quite well aware that he is incompetent, or in his own words: "Let's say I know a thing or two about being volunteered for one-way missions." Secondly, Vexxarr tries an [[AlienInvasion open invasion]], with Literature/TheWarOfTheWorlds-esque walkers. It fails miserably, and Vexxarr is captured. Initially, the comic showed Vexxarr living on earth. After a while though, Vexxarr was allowed to leave, and since then the comic has centered on Vexxarr's journey through the galaxy, and trying to find a place that [[EverythingTryingToKillYou isn't inhabited by something that wants him dead.]] [[FateWorseThanDeath Or worse.]]

* 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]].

* 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.
