** Vanna the Turnamancer has, if anything, eclipsed her in unpopularity.

** Stanley wants to train Parson in tactics after Book 1. Everyone scoffs at this idea, but if you think about it, he's right to a certain degree. Why did Bogroll die? Because Parson was unwilling or unable to croak Ansom on his own (with a possibility of surviving). Parson doesn't lead from the front when it's better for him to add his bonus to a stack. Finally, Parson is a level 2, overweight man who has no combat prowess. Warlord Artemis shows us that, with training, a unit can level without going into combat. Parson doesn't level at all between book 1 and book 2. Maybe Parson should have listened to Stanley just to get the combat lessons and his perspective on combat theory if not his strategic theory. This redeemed by the fact that Parson has been doing his own dirty work more and more since midway through Book 2.

* CryForTheDevil: While not evil per say, [[spoiler:the morally ambiguous Great Minds got IMMEDIATE sympathy from the fandom when the majority of them were killed and Isaac was left a broken man from the psychic backlash and mental trauma.]]

* AntiClimax: ''Erfworld'' manages to turn AntiClimax into a CrowningMomentOfAwesome when a shocking WhamEpisode ([[spoiler:an imprisoned Wanda taking the Arkenpliers from Janis using ExactWords to justify stabbing her with them, intending to decrypt her and use her to fight her way out of prison]]) is bluntly put down in the very next update ([[spoiler:Janis [[NoSell rolls her eyes and asks "Really?"]]]]), neatly pulling the rug out from under the 33 pages of forum ranting the first update had produced.

* ItGetsBetter: While the comic is very good from the start, it doesn't really make much sense until Parson starts asking questions and serving as TheWatson. That happens at around page 25 if you're feeling generous, page 50 if you're not.

** Wanda. On the one hand, when she wants to, she can be a very badass spellcaster able to turn the tide of a battle all by herself. Being attuned to the pliers helps tremendously, making her the most powerful Croakamancer who ever lived thanks to her army of Decrypted units. On the other hand, she is full of herself and makes several mistakes regarding Jillian, whom she was sure to be able to manipulate, but her attempts backfired twice. She also has a blind faith in Fate, which she doesn't completly understand, leading her to make some very dumb decisions like [[spoiler:preventing Lilith from shooting Charlie]], on the basis that Parson is supposed to be the one to croak him (completly ignoring the fact that indirect orders from Parson himself may or may not qualify as him being responsible for Charlie's demise, that there are multiple clever ways to fulfill the prophecy, and as Marie pointed out "Fate would have adapted").
