* UnfortunateImplication: The cast shake-up that came with Luann and Co. moving on to college left the strips two prominent characters of color (Delta and Rosa) PutOnABus. Not counting AmbiguouslyBrown TJ, anyway.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Toni Daytona simply a SatelliteLoveInterest for Brad or is she a BrokenBird who has absolutely no idea what she wants (Hence her seriously mixed signals towards Brad and her dogged defense of the indefensible Dirk)?

Added DiffLines:

** Gunther as of recently. He's either a LovableNerd or a complete {{Jerkass}}, especially when it comes to his mother's relationship with Mr. Grey.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Toni taking exactly zero shit from Brad's predatory boss Ann Eiffel ("You touch me again, Miss Eiffel, and I'll give you [[IncrediblyLamePun an eye full]] of my fist").
** Too bad Ann responds by ''firing Brad.''
** Another is when Quill ''finally'' tells Tiffany to back off, in public no less. Again, too bad this moment comes with a slice of ProtagonistCenteredMorality, as he does so in the middle of a stage rehearsal, and receives not a single reprimand for it.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: [[http://www.gocomics.com/luann/2013/08/17 Just try not to go "Awww..."]]. You almost certainly can't do it.

** TJ. He is always smiling whenever we see him, he's shown to be charismatic (Talking Luann's family into letting him move in with Brad and in their house when he accidentally lit it on fire, talking Brad's dad into okaying a car trip), and has been shown to concoct sometimes rude schemes to get money. However; his parents were never mentioned, and a 2008 strip ''very'' heavily implies that he suffers from ParentalAbandonment. It's easy to interpret that he's an example of a StepfordSmiler who has to resort to scams or unethical business practices to get by.

* DesignatedVillain: Ever since Quill was introduced, Tiffany shifted from merely the shallow Veronica to Luann's Betty to an outright antagonist. Her behavior hasn't changed, but the other characters' reactions to it have. Commenters on Blog/TheComicsCurmudgeon have also noted that while Tiffany matured as a character during the college years and became a better person, everyone still treats her horribly.

* DesignatedHero: On the flip side, there's Luann herself. As noted on the main page's ThisLoserIsYou entry, she is depicted as lazy, sloppy, jealous, clingy, angry, vindictive and horribly insecure on a regular basis. And while Brad's relationship with Toni has played a significant factor in his CharacterDevelopment, Luann's relationship with Quill has only enhanced some of her more negative personality traits. [[spoiler: Eventually her self-centered and clingy nature leads her to dump Quill for not spending enough time with her.]]

--> '''[[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/luann.png hitorque]]:''' Once again, I ask why Tiffany continues to hang around with [[WithFriendsLikeThese "friends"]] who totally hate her and do nothing but denigrate her when she's not around... Bernice realizes she's describing "high school Tiffany", right? The Tiffany that hasn't existed for 2+ years because she's actually grown the fuck up in comparison to the rest of the legacy cast, who inexplicably still have an axe to grind against her? I mean, FFS... Bernice has lived on the same floor as Tiffany for two years now, and hasn't noticed any change whatsoever?

Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Almost literally with Gunther's return from Peru. Karen Evans had taken over as writer the previous year, and this seems to be the point she's hit her stride.
