''Zbeng'' is probably the most notable UsefulNotes/{{Israel}}i comic, by cartoonist Ouri Fink. It follows the day-to-day lives of a large cast of characters, most of them high-schoolers.
----
!!This comic provides examples of:

* AmusingInjuries: and "Zbeng!" is a very common sound effect
* AllMenArePerverts: Well, not everyone. Asher was afraid of sex in one story, Nir is a narcissist and Tzachi only cares about eating. But that's often the general feel of the comic
* AllWomenArePrudes: When this was pointed out to Uri, he created Sivan, a GoodBadGirl
* AlphaBitch: Maya is the Class Queen
* AnimalTalk: in thought-babbles, Garfield-style
* ArtEvolution: A lot of it over the years.
* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: Yes, give your boyfriend's dog chocolate, great idea. Quite puzzling since Uri Fink IS a dog owner and based all the dogs in Zbeng! on his dogs
* AttractiveBentGender: In a very early story, Gal disguises himself as a girl and ends up on a magazine
* AuthorAvatar: Fink is himself an occasional character in the comic. Other than that, he said Yaron is the character that most closely resembles himself.
* AuthorTract: A lot of stories were made as a way for Uri Fink to complain about annoying stuff in his life.
* Battleaxe Nurse: The school nurse is pretty damn cruel
* BerserkButton: Mess with Josepha - or look like she's attracted to you -- and Asher ''will'' kick your ass.
* BigEater: Tzachi, a fat exemple
* BizarreAndImprobableGolfGame: It was mostly bizarre beacause Gal kept putting the balls in horrible places to annoy his dad's boss
* BlatantBurglar: In an early story, complete with a DominoMask
* BlindWithoutEm: Yaron.
* BlondesAreEvil: Maya.
* BookDumb: Almost every teen character but Yaron
* BoyishShortHair: Sigal's first ,third and current hairstyle.
* BrattyTeenageDaughter: Gal and Yaron's big sister, Osnat.
* BrokenPedestal: Gal and Yaron meet a Sylvester Stallone expy, in a story from the late 80's, and discover he's a total crybaby
* TheBully: While Asher is referred to as "the bully", he’s actually pretty nice and friendly if you don't press his BerserkButton. Hertzel, on the other hand...
* BumblingDad: Gal's dad in early stories, but not so much now
* ButtMonkey: Mostly averted -- while everyone is a CosmicPlaything to some extent, any character can come up on top when opposed to the others.
* TheCasanova: Golan is pretty much a male version of Maya. WordOfGod itself says as much.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: On his first appearance, Asher actually CHEATED on Yosepha. And she herself was almost unrecognisable
** Nir used to be just a generic JerkAss, and Jingji wasn't so horrible at first.
* ComicBookTime: a necessary trope to keep a teen comic running for over 20 years.
* CompressedVice: Osnat being superstitious, Gal being allergic to cats, Sivan being a cellphone addict.
* CovertPervert: According to the official website, Yaron is actually higher than his [[AllMenArePerverts brother Gal]] on the horniness scale, it's just that "He doesn't do anything with it".
* DeathSeeker: Stav. Very depressed, very lucky.
* DietEpisode: Both Osnat and her father are on a diet, and they're not very good at it.
* DisguisedInDrag: In Asher's first appearance, Gal tried to disguise himself as a girl to get away from him
* DoggedNiceGuy: Yaron
* DogsAreDumb: Nezek averted this, played straight with Zoe and Schwärze
* DrillSergeantNasty: Avishai is the coach version
* DumbBlonde: Maya avert this trope and resent it
* DumbMuscle: Asher has the body of a gorilla and just one brain cell.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The ultra-rare "numberless" Zbeng is very odd to those who are familiar with the later books. For once, it's not just "Zbeng", but a collection of different comics Uri Fink was making at the time.
* EightiesHair: Maya had that at first.
* Einstein Hair: YARON, and just got messier and messier as time went by
* EnsembleCast: Gal is the closest thing ''Zbeng'' has to a main character. That's not saying much.
* EvilRedhead: Well, "evil" is a strong word, but Jinji is definitely a JerkAss
* ExactWords: Jinji made a bet with Nir that he will get off the railings before Jinji ask him twice, and now Nir needs to sit there and wait for hours until Jinji will ask him a second time.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Tzachi eats Happy Meal toys
* FunWithAcronyms: A few jokes are like that (It'll be kind of hard to translate) even the comic's name was an Acronym for a while
* TheGloriousWarOfSisterlyRivalry: Gal and Yaron are a male exemple.
* GoodAngelBadAngel: Every character has them, called "Conscience" and "Evil Inclination". They look more muscular\wimpy the more\less moral a character is.
* GratuitousGerman: Gal's second dog, a black poodle, was called "Schwärze". Strange, since nobody in the household is of German origin.
* HarmlessElectrocution - In several stories
* IdenticalTwinIDTag: Yaron wears glasses, has messier hair and is less tanned then Gal
* LecherousLicking: Jinji's kink involves chocolate syrup, so it probably includes this trope as well.
* LethalChef: Yosepha's cooking is probably Asher's greatest fear, as he doesn't have the heart to tell her it can actually put him in the hospital.
* LetsJustBeFriends: Said to Yaron by every woman he ever tried to date
* LetsWaitAwhile: Much of the arguing in Gal and Sigal's relationship comes from the fact she feels that she's not ready to have sex.
* LovableSexManiac: Jinji in his better days
* ManChild: The school's Principal is much more interested in cartoons and toys then teaching.
* MeaningfulName: Most surnames are relevant to the character's behavior.
* MoodWhiplash: One story from [[TurnOfTheMillennium the early 2000's]] involved the cartoonist [[NoFourthWall trying to shoehorn himself into the cast]]. First as "one of the guys" (much to the dismay of the ''teenage'' protagonists), then as one of the characters' uncle (with even less success), and finally as a teacher at their school, before the characters finally intimidated him away. Gal then ponders what made him want so much to live in their fictional world. [[spoiler: We then cut to Ouri Fink's office, where he stares, eyes full of dread, at a live-TV image of the burning World Trade Center.]]
* OfficialCouple:
** Gal and Sigal.

* NotAllowedToGrowUp: a necessary trope to keep a teen comic running for over 20 years.

* PottyEmergency: With a dog.
* PrecociousCrush: A young girl with hot older sister sent Gal letters using her sister's name to trick him into dating her.
* Prequel: Zbeng! 1 came out in 1993, and contains mostly Backstory for characters like Maya or the band "My Limpy Sister"

* TeenGenius: Yaron can make teleporters, potions and robots and he's only 16!
* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Zbeng! 1 starts with all the characters getting interviewed by Uri Fink to be the main character in his new comic and getting rejected. In the end Uri realized that comic should be about ALL of them.
* ThePollyanna: Despite living in a cardboard box, Asaf is easily the happiest member of the cast.
* Totally Radical: An Israeli version of that is clear in 90's stories
* TwinSwitch: Gal makes Yaron pull it off from time to time, it never works.
* SadistTeacher: Mrs Zaafani. By her own admission, her only joy in life is screaming at people.
* SoapBoxSadie: Sigal is more than a little devoted to her political ideals.
* SpeakingLikeTotallyTeen: In one story, the adults started talking to the teenagers with then-current slang, to communicate with them better. Results... weren't pretty

* VaudevilleHook: Used in the TerribleIntervieweesMontage in Zbeng! 1 by Maya.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: Even without counting numerous instances of AllJustADream, the cast has encountered aliens, demons, angels, outright miracles from God, time travelers, and more. This doesn't really seem to shock them.
* YoureCuteWhenYoureAngry: Yaron is, according to most female characters
