* HarsherInHindsight: The [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/kidswbyourself/thelastday.html review]] of Creator/KidsWB's final day includes a lament about the likelihood that ''WorldOfQuest'' would end after 13 episodes, then never air on US televisions again "until it appears on ToonDisney at 3 in the morning in the year 2014." Not only did the second season of ''World Of Quest'' air only in Europe, but Peter just happened to write that review mere months before Disney announced they had decided to replace Toon Disney with Creator/DisneyXD. On the bright side, his ExactWords don't give a ''completely'' correct prediction of the future of ''World Of Quest''; he feared it would disappear from the face of the Earth.

** Peter advises in "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/educational/bestsets.html The Five Best Sets Ever]]" that since Time-Life cut the price of ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'': The Complete Collection in half, an '80s kid "...should buy this yesterday." Some time afterwards, Time-Life lost the ''Real Ghostbusters'' DVD rights to Creator/SonyPictures, causing their collection to disappear in favor of {{Vanilla Edition}}s containing fewer episodes, and no bonus features.

* ArchivePanic: Averted by the archive's arrangement by issue, and by Peter's conscious decision to keep each individual story as self-contained as possible so anyone can jump in anywhere. ''Electric Wonderland'' is the exception, being more continuity-heavy.
** The banners don't have their own archive, though.

* {{Anvilicious}}: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/miscellaneous/index.php?issue=16&page=0 Vess MacMeal Starring in: The More You Know!]]" It seems possible this happened on purpose, since the comic acts as a throwback to cautionary stories written during the ColdWar.

** "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/onlyme/ootwalkthrough.html My Ocarina of Time Walkthrough]]" claims that beating Film/TheRunningMan in a race will grant the player a werewolf's curse. Five years later, ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' starred a Link who could turn into a wolf.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: "[[http://www.platypuscomix.net/onlyme/ootwalkthrough.html My Ocarina of Time Walkthrough]]" has a point in which the player asks, "How do I defeat Jenova?" Instead of stating that Jenova comes from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', not ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', Peter fabricates instructions on how to gain the abilities to turn into a werewolf and "Omnislash". [[spoiler:He caps off his response by warning that defeating Jenova will cause the N64 to explode.]]

* ColbertBump: ''Series/FreeSpirit'', an otherwise obscure 1989 sitcom, saw a rise in notoriety after Peter started writing articles praising the show's Winnie Goodwin character.
