* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Dies Horribly is supposed to be viewed as TheWoobie because he's destined to... well, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin die horribly]]. Except, in the world of Goblins ''most'' of the characters who die do so quite horribly, including most of the goblin war camp being slaughtered by adventurers, and K'Sellis (who was part of Dies's party) having one of the most [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath Family Unfriendly Deaths]] in the comic. Moreover, most monstrous characters know full well they will probably die horribly one day, especially if they willingly engage player characters, and are still able to act brave and noble and lead rich lives, while Dies Horribly constantly acts like a coward and moans about his fate (even though at one point he tries to convince Fox he's accepted his fate already). It sometimes comes to the point where you really wish someone would just smack Dies across the head and tell him "just because you're going to die horribly, doesn't mean you have to ''live'' horribly!"

* AuthorsSavingThrow: [[http://www.goblinscomic.org/comics/20160617.jpg This comic]] finally sheds some light on the mythos of [[ThePaladin Paladins]] in this setting, more specifically, how ObviouslyEvil Kore can keep his Paladin powers, despite Paladins generally having to be AlwaysLawfulGood. Basically, Ears describes it that although Kore may be a villain and even 'evil' that's not the way he views himself, at no point does Kore ever feel he has committed an evil act or gone against his Paladin's oath, its just his nature to be quick to condemn and believe he is in the right for doing so. This explains how Ears can be penalized for attacking Kore despite Kore having tortured and killed their chief, its because he attacked someone he knew was a paladin from behind, an act he knew was against his oath yet he committed it anyways.

*** FridgeLogic: by its own "logic", Kore should have killed ITSSELF long ago, due to its extended "association" with monsters (aka killing them on a daily/ hourly basis) ALON, let aside... OTHER things..
