* TheScrappy: Tayler used to get emails calling for Para Ventura's death on a regular basis. She hasn't had much CharacterDevelopment since then. That she has been [[spoiler:spying on the Toughs for the UNS]] may help or make things worse.

** Recently RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap, as her spying got her briefly exiled, then demoted all the way to Corporal, and she's now treated as just another Tough.

* UnfortunateImplications: There are no known gay human characters. Since this is not a neutral choice for a 21st century webcomic, this erasure implies something fairly horrible happened between the present day and the time of the comic.

** Not helped that the "romance" between Elf and Tagon only appears in less than a week's worth of strips leading up to [[spoiler: Tagon's death in the "bad future" timeline]], and received no development prior to that.

** An Int-Aff-Int officer talks about a [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2012-12-29 dash-nine option]], with regards to terminating the spy they put in Tagon's company. In a POSIX-compliant operating system like Linux, signal number nine is generally called KILL, and you can halt a misbehaving process that won't respond to the usual termination signals using "kill -9"
*** Taken even further when the two officers argue whether it should be pronounced "dash nine" or "minus nine," something that real-life Linux users do today.

** Although Kevyn is later shown growing hair when he's stuck on a primitive planet for awhile, implying that he shaves his head rather than being naturally bald.

** Shufgar managed to fool an HV 2.5[[note]]Average human intelligence is 1[[/note]] AI designed for tactical planning and one of the smartest people in the strip, and would have succeeded with his plans had Kevyn not been given [[EmpoweredBadassNormal supersoldier nannite boosting]] to literally make him a OneManArmy.

* VillainDecay: The Partnership Collective went from manipulating planetary governments to nothing more than comic relief once the Toughs got the contract on them. The fact that the Gatekeepers stopped using them as proxies probably didn't help.

* GeniusBonus: The Mallcop arc also featured [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2010-04-20 a scene]] where the villains use command injection to force a CCTV system to sleep for ten minutes. When a QR code is held up to a security camera, the system reads the commands contained in the code and executes them because the administrators never changed the system's admin username and password from their defaults. The QR code in question is displayed to the reader, so what happens when you use your smartphone's bar code scanner to read the QR code the character is holding up?

* ArchivePanic: 10 years, 1 3- or 4-panel strip Monday through Saturday and a 6- to 10-panel strip on Sundays, ''never missed a day'', even when the hosting server literally blew up. If you set out to archive binge the whole thing, expect it to take days, if not weeks.
