Added DiffLines:

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Issue 22 of the comic sees GIR infected with a virus that makes him try to kill Zim.


Added DiffLines:

* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: Issue 22 ends with Zim entering GIR's mind in order to find the virus that's driving him crazy.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverRecycleYourSchemes: Usually played straight. There is one subversion in the comics, however, as Issue 22 sees Zim once again trying to disperse Flamin' Hot Cheezo dust into the Earth's atmosphere in order to make the planet uninhabitable for humans, something he tried once before in Issue 12, though in this case he changes the planned method of dispersal.


Added DiffLines:

* StoryArc: Issues 22-25 of the comics are the "Arc of Virooz", referencing the mysterious force responsible for infecting GIR with a virus that makes him try to kill Zim.

* CavalierConsumption: Gir does this frequently. Other characters also have their moments.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSnackIsMoreInteresting: Gir does this frequently. Take ''Plague of Babies'' for example: while Zim fights for his life against the Giganto-Baby, Gir enjoys a bucket of fried chicken and mayo (even eating a still clucking chicken). Other characters also have their moments.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Compare the unaired pilot to the first episode of the series (or just the series in general). The unaired pilot was goofy, lighter, and had more of a basis of exaggerated fun, while the series was more darker, lighting was toned down, and the humor was much more darker.

* FreakyFridayFlip: A pudding-related accident with a body switching machine in issue 21 of the comic causes Zim to switch with Gaz and Dib to switch with [=GIR=]. TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody is in full effect for Dib and Gaz: Gaz takes over Earth while Dib [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead goes insane]] after looking through [=GIR=]'s files.

TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody is in full effect for Dib and Gaz: most of them: Gaz takes over Earth while Zim becomes apathetic and obsessed with games, and Dib [[AMindIsATerribleThingToRead goes insane]] after looking through [=GIR=]'s files.GIR's files; GIR himself stays exactly the same.


Added DiffLines:

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Issue 21 as the comic has this as the way [[FreakyFridayFlip Gaz-as-Zim]] takes over the world -- first, she gets everyone's attention by destroying all the world militaries' weapons, calling it an act of world peace. Then, she solves world hunger with a new artificial food, which happens to contain an alien chemical that makes people stupid and easy to control. This leads to the world's leaders all asking her to take over as ruler of Earth.

** All over the place in "Planet Jackers". Parodying the Twin Cities bit from ''{{Fargo}}'', one of the pilots points out a [[BinarySuns binary star system]], implying it's a rare sight. However the truth is that most stars in the galaxy, or at least the most visible ones, are part of a binary system.

** Zim gets to be this in "Abducted", after being abducted by what may be the only alien species dumber than [[AquaTeenHungerForce the Plutonians.]]

* AsYouKnow: Lampshaded when Issue 20 opens with Zim crowing about his latest EvilPlan:
-->'''Zim''': My Conquer-Blob has been made with one thought in its every mushy cell -- to conquer the Earth for Zim!
-->'''Computer''': I know all this already. Who are you saying all this again for?

** In "The Frycook What Came From All That Space", it's revealed that Zim was banished to a planet called Foodcourtia, where (as the name implies) he was forced to be a BurgerFool for the rest of his life under Sizz-Lorr. Security doesn't seem to be a huge priority in Irken Culture, though: once he catches wind of Operation Impending Doom 2, Zim easily and promptly escapes. Sizz-Lorr, [[GenreSavvy on the other hand,]] [[ItOnlyWorksOnce learns from his mistake]] and Zim is actually forced to figure out a way to escape a second time.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: ZIM will never conquer the Earth and Dib will never reveal ZIM as an alien. More often than not, one's failure causes the other. Gaz herself [[GenreSavvy knows this]] and as such she never really gets involved in their rivalry willingly.
