* 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").

** 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 Ansem 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.

** Lilith, the decrypted archon, earned her fanbase thanks to her wits (after all, she managed to scam Charlie [[spoiler:and were it not for Wanda's intervention, she could have possibly killed him]]) and her defiant personality.

The more readers saw of the mayhem she caused in Charlescomm City all by herself, the more they wished her to survive the seemingly insurmountable odds. [[spoiler:And eventually she did.]]

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassWoobie: Charlie's signamancy implies this, [[spoiler: since he appears as none other than Charlie Brown through a lens of DarkLordOnLifeSupport.]] He is literally fated to fail and have his plans continually foiled by things outside his control, but he keeps persevering endlessly. None of this changes the fact that he's an evil jerk.

* UncannyValley: Book 2 is drawn by a different artist than book one. The new art is just as good, it's just... different... in small, subtle ways. One can get a sort of UncannyValley effect the first time seeing the new art style after being so used to the old one.
** And with another new artist taking up the reins for "Book 2 Epilogue" onward, this is happening again.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Part of the point, the protagonist is fighting for the "Bad" Guys, and the "Good" guys are willing to stoop even lower than Stanley to win. And Stanley stoops ''low''.

* HilariousInHindsight: In the 7 epilogue, Jack in Black, Jack tells Parson about Charlie (the stuff that happened in Book 0). Parson is surprised that it was the Arkenshoes that are the last Arkentool and not the Arkensaw which was one of the guesses for the forth tool on the Wild Mass Guessing page. Amusing given how many Erworld readers are tropers.

* TheWoobie: Sizemore. He's a pacifist, but he lives in a world of violence and lacks the free will to carry out his philosophy, so he's forced to kill. He's viewed as useless by his master. He's one of the few people who's interested in learning new magic and studying, but lacks the ability to cast anything but the most mundane and ugly. Simply put, he's trapped in a world he doesn't belong in, even more so than Parson.

* BaseBreaker: Jillian. The fanbase will sometimes argue over whether she is an awesome Conan the Barbarian-esque free spirit or a TooDumbToLive FlatCharacter with loads of CharacterShilling. Or a woobie who [[MindRape had her mind destroyed]] and never healed, for that matter.
