* CerebusRetcon: Jack. Fire. [[spoiler:Apparently he thinks he deserves it.]] More importantly, he feels it relieves Sandra of her stress and keeps her from falling over the edge. [[spoiler:Turns out he was right: once Sandra really tortures someone for the first time, she snaps.]]

** The comic substituted the HyperspaceMallet with spontaneous combustion. Later, when the title character attacks her TrueCompanions and uses the same power, [[HilarityEnsues hilarity does not ensue]].
** In that same vein, the spell originally used to banish Lord Incubus way back in the comic's wacky beginning (before the genesis of the title Zebra Girl, even) has a slightly less humorous feel now that it's been used on the [[spoiler:former protagonist]] who is far more frightening than Lord Incubus ever was. Although, the spell still appears in the form of a magical toilet that sucks the unwanted guest in.



** Crystal, though this aspect of her is toned down after a while. [[spoiler:The awful events she lived through are taking their toll on her, and she became too depressed to act like her old self]].

* EyeTake: During the "Heaven on Earth" arc, after Jack asks if anyone else noticed that Sandra "looks sexier than she used to be", Crystal blurts out that [[HoYay she did]]. Cue the whole group immediatly looking at her quite surprised, especially Wally.

* FanServicePack: Sandra, after she came back from the Subfusc, got noticably sexier. The artist is aware of this, and is wary of objectifying her. While he said he will try to keep it from getting out of hand, these changes are here to stay.

* BullyingADragon: Gregory is an experienced exorcist and demon-hunter who thought he could drag the emotionaly drained Sandra with him to hell. Turns out it was a ''very'' bad idea. That event is also what finally drove Sandra over the edge.

* CassandraTruth: After the "Sandra in the Outlands" arc, [[spoiler:Sandra is turning over a new leaf and is truly repentant about her past actions. However, her former friends are not willing to listen to her anymore. When she tries to contact Crystal (who believed in Sandra for years until she got attacked by vampires claiming to follow Sandra's orders), telling her that she is regretful and that she misses her, Jack's sister rejects her and immediatly warns her brother that she is nearby]].
* CensorBox: Used seldomly whenever Sandra becomes vulgar. For example, the f-word and s-word are almost always censored, but other insults get a pass, such as [[http://zebragirl.net/?date=2009-10-06 this one]] when she arrived in the Subfusc.

Once Sandra discovers that there is a conspiracy against her, Bloo decides it is time for Sandra to take a nap, and drugs her. She then reveals their intention to lock her up and use her as a "karma farm", ie. "harvesting" her blood regularly for their own purposes.]]

-->'''Crystal:''' This is it, everyone, we're under attack!\\
'''Wally:''' No! Honey, shhh. It's probably nothing. Just the wind knocking a limb into the power lines! Guys, it happens all the time around here. I'll go check and be back in two minutes!\\
'''Sam:''' Holy God, Wally. You're asking for it. Crystal's right, we all know what kind of movie we're in, let's just assume the trouble is monster related!

** Collywobble from Subfusc sent one of his minions, Quick Slick Spitlick, after Viv and Sandra, because he figured that Viv would hurt Sandra in some "vague, existential fashion that doesn't involve actual physical damage". Turns out, he was spot on:
--->'''Viv:''' Nuts. Didn't think he'd catch on. Growth ''is'' painful, you know?
** ''Mabel'', in her own damaged way and in a meta-sense, realizes that Sandra is crucial to the plot:
--->'''Mabel:''' Oh, dear. I'm starting to think the world revolves around HER!
