* TheChrisCarterEffect: ScheduleSlip trouble + Dan Shive's love for ChekhovsGun = we should probably give up on expecting getting answers to all of the questions. As of 6th Dec 2015, many storylines seem to be making slow progress...but there are a lot of them, and new storylines tend to sprout.

[[spoiler:Magus got his body, Susan and new storylines tend to sprout.Diane met and we learned the exact nature of their relationship, Pandora reset, and Magic finally changed- or rather, didn't.]]

* CompleteMonster:
** [[KnightOfCerebus Damien]], the AxCrazy BigBad of the "Painted Black" arc, was created as an attempt to fulfill a prophecy about one who would unite Human/Alien hybrids known as seyunolus; he took this to mean that he was a [[AGodAmI God]] with an OmniscientMoralityLicense who was meant to [[KillAllHumans kill humanity]]. When some of the people who created him questioned his plan to obtain a group of four seyunolus, Damien decided that they were heretics and killed them. He then went to the company who created the four previously mentioned seyunolus and slaughtered all of their other employees, deliberately killing people in front of the seyunolus to make them fear him. Damien planned to slowly grow the Seyunolu into an army to eliminate humanity, using the sole female seyunolu Grace as breeding stock. When Grace escaped from his nest, Damien sent Hedge out to recapture her, [[YouHaveFailedMe threatening him with death]] if he didn't return with something; when Hedge returns with a transformed Elliot instead, [[BadBoss Damien hits Hedge]] for not returning with a female seyunolu and keeps Elliot tied up and refuses to provide him with food until he reveals information about where he came from. Finally, when Damien was wounded by Grace after he attempted to kill her friends, thus providing possible evidence of his mortality, Damien decides to [[TakingYouWithMe self-destruct]] in order to defeat Grace, deciding that either he was a God and his body was irrelevant, or he was a mortal and life wasn't worth living.
** Not-Tengu of the "Family Tree" arc. In the past, he magically brainwashed people into his sheep, casually telling Ellen that h sees absolutely nothing wrong with this. After Tedd's estranged mother Noriko defeated him, he vowed vengeance on not only her, but her entire family. He infiltrates a birthday party to turn almost all of its guests into extremely obedient clones of Noriko's niece Nanase, and once exposed, he tries to brutally kill her while declaring his desire to hunt down and murder everyone else even remotely related to her. Put simply, he is a shining example of why Mr. Verres wants the use of magic kept under wraps, as he was [[FromNobodyToNightmare no more than a common asshole who got his hands on the ability to control others]].

Added DiffLines:

** "Sister 3" is so long it gets split into ''twenty-four'' parts. No previous arc has had more than ten divisions.

* MoralEventHorizon: Being an aberration. Aberrations are monsters that feed on human life force, and all aberrations were once human who made the ''choice'' to become that way.

* MoralEventHorizon: Being an aberration. Aberrations are monsters that feed on human life force, and all aberrations were once human who made the ''choice'' to become that way. All ways of 'feeding' on life force thus far have been shown as ranging from [[PuppeteerParasite body snatching]] to [[VampiricDraining blood drinking]] to full on [[ImAHumanitarian people eating]], and it's said outright aberrations not only feel no guilt over their actions, they ''revel'' in it.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: While discussing the particulars of Ellen's beam spells, Dan states that she is unable to copy enchanted forms ... before realizing (within the same day be posted the comic) that he had fucked up since Ellen ''had'' copied Nanase's enchanted angel form before. Backpedaling, the next comic he admits his mistake but stands firm that while Ellen can copy enchanted forms and even mix those forms with her own enchantments, she cannot scan and paste them, meaning she cannot mix an enchanted form with itself to multiply the effects.
