Added DiffLines:

*TearJerker: The last episode of the animated series, in which Julie leaves the city. The Maxx is clearly upset about this, and this shows during their last dialogue in the series. Also, unlike in the comic, the story ends here.

* SeasonalRot: The comic series went downhill fast after issue 21. Mr. Gone's CharacterDevelopment was perhaps the only good thing to come of it.

* SeasonalRot: The comic series went downhill fast after issue 21. Mr. Gone's CharacterDevelopment was perhaps the only good thing to come of it. Others will argue it happened after issue 29, where the plot lost its direction and was constantly interrupted by various one-shot stories that had nothing to do with anything.

* MisaimedFandom: Mr. Gone is often quoted for saying "Of course I have a problem with women. Everybody has a problem with women. Because women taunt, and tease, and are attractive, and punish you for being attracted," which some fans thought to be insightful and accurate. In fact, Mr. Gone is a rapist, and this attitude was intended as a representation of how a rapist thinks.
* MoralEventHorizon: Though the first StoryArc (the one adapted into the tv series), did not make this explicit, Mr. Gone literally rapes several women during his villain career. A later StoryArc of the ComicBook dealt with this and his reasons for doing it in a way that transcended cliche.
* NightmareFuel Mr. Gone, including [[spoiler:some of his stages of decomposition]], the dark Isz, [[spoiler:the dying rabbit under little Julie's bed that keeps scratching and scratching]], [[spoiler: a baby with his eyes removed and the sockets sewn back up]], [[spoiler:retrieving severed toes and fingers from inside the "fairies" that have eaten them]].

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Mr. Gone's FreudianExcuse is tragic, utterly averts DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale, and pointedly does not give Gone a pass for any of his subsequent behavior, leading to his HeelRealization. In short, it's a rare comic that deals with several aspects of rape, all of them maturely.

* HellIsThatNoise: The animated series featured a flashback story from Mr. Gone's past and Julie's childhood, involving a dying bunny in a box and the scratching noises it made with its good leg.

* DeaderThanDisco: Surprisingly, no. This is one of the few DarkAge comics that people remember fondly. Mostly because it was incredibly well crafted and a good deal deeper than most of what came out.

Mostly because it was incredibly is both well crafted loved by modern comic fans and a good deal deeper than most of what came out.critics.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Of Image Comics during it's early years.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeLogic: Oh so much. One of the most shining examples from the cartoon was the denouement when Maxx finds his own Outback, which is gardening in a little greenhouse. This is significant because the "animals" in Julie's Outback are all plants. This leads to several possible conclusions:
** Julie helped Maxx find his own Outback.
** Julie and Maxx were meant for each other and the conclusion is a tragedy.
** Maxx's own Outback is the reason why he was so good at protecting her, which was why she could never grow with him around.
