* MarySue: The extraordinary resemblance between Jim Balent and Skeleton Man makes this pretty obvious. Considering how [[ButtMonkey useless is he]] most of the time, he verges more on the AntiSue subtype.

** Which turns into even more of a BrokenAesop for those that know the only reason that companies were deep water drilling in the FIRST place was because environmentalists had forced them to. The massive problem only happened because they had no technology that could travel deep enough to effectively cap the well. If the accident had happened on a shallow water drilling station, the spill could have been halted within hours, with very little damage. Wow talk about revisionism. The true story is that the spill was the result of oil company greed and lack regulation. In September 2014, a U.S. District Court judge ruled that BP was primarily responsible for the oil spill because of its gross negligence and reckless conduct.

* UnfortunateImplications: For all that the series tries to portray Wicca as being less homophobic than other religions, the series constantly stresses the importance of there being both a "God" and a "Goddess" in matrimony, which presumably means that Wicca doesn't favor the idea of marriage equality any more than other religions do. Also, Tarot's relationship with Boo Cat seems far less substantial than her relationship with John.

** A meta-example. If people consider the comics messages about body image to be a BrokenAesop because they're being delivered by women with exaggerated proportions, it's problematic because it's advocating the idea that women with similar proportions or bodies that come close to the characters can't express positive body image nor deliver such positive messages to other people, all because of their bodies, which in turn reinforces intolerance for body image; because as hard as it is to believe, there are women in real-life with exaggerated body proportions, whether it's natural or augmented, and they also face issues of body image as well, from general embarrassment from unnecessary attention, to others breaking them down to make them feel bad about their bodies as well.

* {{Squick}}: In one arc, Tarot is 'milked' and is forced to secrete sexual fluids by the villain. He then drinks the fluids and makes butter out of it, which he then spreads across his toast. He did this because he believed drinking her 'life-fluids' (as he calls them) [[InsaneTrollLogic would give him her knowledge]].
* StrawmanHasAPoint: Non-witches have criticized Tarot for her lack of modesty, with the typical retort being that she's 'proud of her body'; this applies to other characters on occasion. However, Tarot seem to ignore the fact that ''strippers'' wear more then she does, and don't parade around outside.

** Not to mention that it's considerably easier to be proud of your body when that body is one that Playboy Bunnies would be jealous of.
