* UnfortunateImplications: The famous "False Equivalence" strip has a female character putting a StrawMisogynist in his place. However, [[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Shortpacked#Downfall critics]] took umbrage with the fact that the strip generalized women to the point that it implied that all women prefer a certain body type. This is made worse by the fact that the mouthpiece for the strip used the phrase "female such as myself," which creates an air of "WhiteKnighting", considering the strip was penned by a straight male.

** [[http://www.shortpacked.com/2011/comic/book-13/05-the-death-of-snkrs/falseequivalence/ The False Equivalence comic]] has fans divided. Some think Amber makes a good point about how both male and female characters alike are drawn to appeal to men, others feel that the bias she's supposing is nonexistent, and still others have raised other objections over how accurate the Batman Amber draws is to women's desires.

* {{Asspull}}: The resolution to Ultra Car and Malaya's relationship problems. Malaya wanted a sexual relationship whereas Ultra Car not only didn't feel sexual attraction but finds human sexuality discomforting and disgusting. After doing some soul-searching and ultimately refusing to change herself to be able to have sex; Ultra Car realizes she can use her third pie-throwing arm to finger Malaya and the problem is easily rectified in two comics.

** Despite making strips [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=1861 mocking racism]], there is a lot of subtle racial bias. Malaya and Faz, both clearly asian, are a clear asshole and disturbing creep respectively, while the paler skinned Ken (Who even Willis joked looks like a weird version of Ethan) is a nicer person and takes over as the AuthorAvatar when Ethan leaves. Robin is immature [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=39 and manipulative]] while [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=1280 Roz forced her way into the house]] and took [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=1297 advantage of an emotionally damaged Jacob]]. Also, while Ethan, Amber and Leslie being assistant managers is portrayed as them moving up in the world, Faz's ambitions are part of [[http://www.shortpacked.com/index.php?id=147 his negative traits]].

* JerkassWoobie: Galasso may be a hammy wannabe super villain with loose ethics, but there is a sliver or regret and tragedy in him, especially when we learn [[spoiler:about the loss of his wife]].

** When Willis started producing comics for Slipshine, scenes even referencing sex caused commenters to joke about when he'd do a comic based on them. This got more notable in DOA.

* JustHereForGodzilla: There are a few who only know of the comic's existence because it parodied Frank Miller and Batman (and that one of its Batman memes was subsequently acknowledged by one of the ''LEGO Batman'' games). They're often surprised that the comic has an actual plot and characters, and that most of the jokes in the strip ''aren't'' about Batman.
