* CaliforniaDoubling: Romanchuk uses Sault Ste. Marie Ontario for wherever her Hunters travel.
* FanNickname: Jasper was [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Snarky Gas Mask Guy]] before his name, face, and [[JerkAss personality]] were revealed.
* OneOfUs: When Romanchuk found Wiki/TVTropes (and this page), she liked it so much she saw fit to gush on Facebook. Fans knew this already, [[AllThereInTheManual as it is mentioned several times]] in the non-canon side stories that Jenny (Both the comic version and the real life version) is a {{Series/Firefly}} fan.
* ScheduleSlip: A notable exception. Always updates on Mondays, with an occasional Thursday thrown in. This has since been changed to "every Thursday", but can still hit a rough patch (for example, if Romanchuk gets sick).
** The comic has had a major one since October 2015, after Romanchuk suffered a CreatorBreakdown due to mental health issues and a death in the family. [[https://www.facebook.com/thezombiehunters/posts/10153762744160664 Romanchuk posted in 2016 saying she was continuing to struggle with these issues and at that point in time had no idea when she'd be able to update the comic again.]]
** In October of 2016, [[http://www.thezombiehunters.com/index.php?strip_id=723 Romanchuk wrote a post]] describing how she was struggling with the guilt of not having been able to print the books for her Kickstarter, and that although she would definitely be printing them, they would be the last books she would do. She also revealed she had been suffering from depression, panic attacks and hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations, although she was taking steps to deal with these issues. She apologized and thanked her fans for sticking with her, and began updating the comic again a year later.
* WriteWhoYouKnow: Jenny and three other Hunters were initially named and based on the author and her friends. Very quickly, the characters [[CharacterDevelopment developed beyond]] those roles.
