* NamesTheSame: Crystal Weston Chandler and Crystal Weston Chandler, Chris-Chan's sister and daughter respectively.
* StreisandEffect: Much of the comic was fueled by Chris's attempts to fight back after 4chan and Encyclopedia Dramatica tried to troll him, creating an infinite loop where he would create new material, which would lead to more trolling, which would lead to more material...
* TributeToFido: Patti-Chan is based on Chris's dog, Patti.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Most of the characters that aren’t Pokémon or hedgehogs are derived from people the writer has met or “known” in real life.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Metal Sonichu was planned to return while taken over by Count Graduon.
* WhyTheFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Chris has not made a ''Sonichu'' comic in years due to his (justifiable) belief that his fanbase consisted solely of [[{{Troll}} trolls]]. He has stated that he feels the fanbase sabotaged his attempts to court a female acquaintance just so he can make more comics.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://www.sonichu.com/cwcki/Sonichu_%28comic%29 CWCki]], while mostly focusing on the bizarre life of its creator, also has a large section devoted to his comic.
