* FanNickname: The organization that Jason's father heads was never given an actual name. Fans eventually took to calling them the JFO (Jason's Father's Organization).
** The Head Alien was dubbed "Dexter" by fans [[spoiler: after he died and was resurrected, which mirrors your body and thus switched his fingered hand from his left arm to his right]]. This was never seriously used in the comic, though it was was referenced during the ''{{Fans}}'' crossover.
*** [[MythologyGag In the Dumbing Of Age continuity there's a cartoon called ''Dexter, The Head Alien'']].
* MagnificentBastard: Head Alien, and in the final arc, Penny Worthington.
** And arguably Mike.
* MoodWhiplash: Oh dear sweet lord, SO MUCH. Routinely switches from grief over main character deaths to ToiletHumor. Oddly, this can heighten the dramatic effects - the characters are so used to that sort of thing by the end of the comic that they move on faster than the reader does.
* {{Wangst}}: Sal is especially prone to this, and [[http://itswalky.com/d/20010516.html it starts getting lampshaded early on.]] Jason finally had enough of it in [[http://www.itswalky.com/d/20031001.html this strip.]]

[[folder:Joyce & Walky!]]
* FridgeHorror: Head Alien II's monologue about how he was free to drift from dimension to dimension destroying SEMME over and over has a panel of dead agents drawn in the style of Willis's elementary-school work, implying that he pretty much wiped out that LighterAndSofter world. ''Holy crap.''

* BaseBreaker: The whole Billie vs Ruth thing has people picking sides.
** Also is Joyce an adorable Christian who needs to break out of the effects of her sheltered life or an idiotic bible-bashing xenophobe?
* MemeticMutation:
** [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2010/comic/book-1/01-move-in-day/face/ FAAAAACE!]]
** [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2011/comic/book-1/03-men-are-from-beck-women-are-from-clark/penis/ With my penis]] tends to pop up in the comments of most strips involving Joe.
*** It has recently become the response to any action, regardless of if Joe is in any way involved.
* TheScrappy: New!Joyce. Dear god, New!Joyce. The plan was to have them all have the character development, minus the alien abduction. What we have instead is a Joyce that is effectively a RalphWiggum Christian fundamentalist, with the added bonus of being very intolerant and completely ignorant as well. Her stated goal for being at school is ''just'' to find a husband and quit. She finds a Jewish man and her immediate goal is to convert him to Christianity. A friend reveals that she's an Athiest and she has a panic attack. She goes on a date, only to pay another man to come along and ''beat up the guy'' if he "steps out of line." When called out on a Christian attacking someone, she says it's fine, [[DoubleStandard cause girls can't hurt guys.]] Fortunately, like Billie, the running theme seems to be BreakTheHaughty with her.
** Then again, that arguably still makes her ''better'' than how the original Joyce was at the start. Only time will tell how her CharacterDevelopment will go.
*** She's currently in second place in the site's "Favorite [=DoA=] undergrad character, First Anniversary Edition" poll, with 12% of the votes. So this is an extra YMMV.
** Sarah is another character that tends to inspire hatred in the comments, thanks to how viciously antisocial she is.
