[[DadaComics Oh dear lord, what have I gotten myself into?]]

''[[http://mountaincomics.com/ Mountain Time]]'' is a very strange StickFigureComic by [[AwesomeMcCoolname Isto Combs]]. It consists mainly of non sequiturs, deriving much of its humour from such bizarre events as [[http://mountaincomics.com/2011/10/24/mountain-time-306/ a man removing his heart and turning it into macaroni salad]], [[http://mountaincomics.com/2009/03/02/mountain-time-10/ a woman sleeping with Burkina Faso]], [[RuleOfThree and]] [[http://mountaincomics.com/2009/06/16/how-the-hubcap-was-one-with-everything/ a man with a statement allergy]]. The comic is often completely incomprehensible, but the author claims that [[MindScrew it always has a symbolic meaning]]. [[TheWalrusWasPaul He's probably making it up]]. We hope.

----
!! This comic provides examples of:

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Chimneyfoot. His character page even compares him to Rudolph.
* AnachronismStew: Computers have flat-screen monitors, but all the televisions are tube (complete with rabbit ears). Interstellar travel is apparently such a trivial matter that any pair of idiots can go on a mission to an exoplanet, but everyone still uses rotary phones. Knights interact with cowboys interact with robots sophisticated enough to have emotions. At least one person still has a beeper.
* AudienceParticipation: The author regularly responds to comments... in ways that make as much sense as the comic itself.
* BilingualBonus: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/04/22/mountain-time-447/ TORTHOS]], [[NoIndoorVoice EMPEROR OF THE INFERNAL REALM OF IUCUNDUM PRATI]]. "Iucundum Prati" is slightly mangled Latin for [[spoiler: Pleasant Meadows]].
* BizarroUniverse: By flipping the Mountain Time logo upside down, [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/07/23/mountain-time-375/ River Valley Time was born]]. Much unease followed.
* BleepDammit: Censor bars over [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/11/11/mountain-time-493/ stick-figure nudity]] don't actually accomplish much.
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: Attorney, architect, doctor, cop, doctor cop, attornitect, lava puncher, [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/11/15/mountain-time-408/ etc.]]
* CatchPhrase: Self Aware Dinosaur's [[CaptainObvious "I'm a dinosaur!"]]
* CloudCuckooLander: A ''very'' large percentage of the characters.
** Marvin even has a cloud on top of his head.
* DadaComics: To varying degrees. [[http://mountaincomics.com/2010/05/25/mountain-time-172/ Here]] is a strong example.
* DidYouDie: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/03/29/mountain-time-345/ three times.]]
* DrinkingGame: A very easy game was described in the notes under [[http://mountaincomics.com/2010/01/14/the-sink-that-destroyed-fear-but-was-not-a-sink/ this comic]], the rules simply being: drink any time you're reading Mountain Time.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Self-Aware Dinosaur.
* EverythingsBetterWithPenguins: See GreekChorus, below.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Agoraphobic Hamster, Archery Buoy, Pelican Cello, Surf Rat...
* FateWorseThanDeath: Dave tricks someone into trapping himself in the five (but not fifth) dimension, where he faces a [[http://mountaincomics.com/2011/07/07/mountain-time-280/ very long]] and [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment cruel punishment]].
* FauxlosophicNarration: Any time the [[MixAndMatchCritter snailbear]] appears.
* FourthWallObserver: Agoraphobic Hamster interacts with the narrator on a regular basis. Some of the other characters do as well, but not nearly as frequently.
* FinishDialogueInUnison: Regarding what appears to be a faulty [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin crime]] [[http://mountaincomics.com/2011/05/30/shorts-blaster/ ring]].
* GreekChorus: The [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins penguins]]. They seem to know about, and comment on, everything going on in the strip, but they're almost never ''involved'' in the slightest.
* GrimReaper: The Great One, god of death and hot dogs.
* HammerSpace: The onions' swords are larger than the onions themselves, but we never see them until they're drawn.
* JerkAss: Dave, but [[RealityWarper don't tell him I said that.]]
* KonamiCode: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2009/12/22/mountain-time-141/ The Contra Waltz.]]
* LiteralMinded: The guy who isn't Dave in [[http://mountaincomics.com/2009/02/09/mountain-time-1/ the very first comic]], and many others.
** And then Dave [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/09/27/mountain-time-394/ here]].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The Characters page currently lists 27, but there are a lot more than that.
* LongList: Pelican Cello is apparently good at making them.
* MeatOVision: Happens to [[ItMakesSenseInContext George Washington]] in the [[http://mountaincomics.com/2014/01/03/mountain-time-516/ 26th century]].
* MindScrew: Quite often, really, but especially [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/04/05/mountain-time-346/ here]].
* MixAndMatchCritters: The lirus, the snailbear, Pelican Cello, Burrito Squid...
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Dave, who seems to have a new power every time he appears.
* {{Ninja}}: The onions. Yes, literally.
* NonindicativeName: It doesn't have terribly much to do with mountains or time.
** Also, Joe's Pool Hall. It's not a hall, it doesn't have a pool table, and there's no one called Joe there.
** Joe's Pool Hall is located in the Mystic Woods, in which there are no trees.
* NorseMythology: The penguins worship Norse gods, particularly Tyr.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: played straight, and then, [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/09/13/mountain-time-390/ um...]]
* PokemonSpeak: Soup-of-the-day Steve has a weird variant of this, where he can only say whatever the soup of the day is.
* PlanetOfSteves: Or, more accurately, Universe of Pauls.
* PrecisionFStrike: The comic has almost no swearing, but one recurring character is called Lenny the Fuck You Zebra.
* PullARabbitOutOfMyHat: Dave [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/09/26/mountain-time-483/ plays with]] this one [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/11/21/mountain-time-495/ now and then]].
* RealityWarper: Probably the best way to explain Dave's powers.
* RunningGag: Luther was right!
** Well, I'm not working in '''this''' coal mine any more.
** That really bends my sea lion.
* ShoutOut: There are many, but [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/08/15/mountain-time-474/ this one]] to [[MST3K MST3K]] is among the most notable.
** [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/08/27/mountain-time-386/ Referencing]] [[Music/WesleyWillis Wesley Willis]] seems noteworthy as well.
** To say nothing of a [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/10/25/mountain-time-401/ surprisingly detailed]] [[Series/DoctorWho Dalek]] in a stick figure comic.
* SnapBack: Otherwise everyone would be dead, like, thrice. There was even a time when Helen Hunt [[BeyondTheImpossible killed more people than live on Earth]]. [[http://mountaincomics.com/2010/10/04/the-unstartled-giraffe-12/ Traffic was still bad.]] Afterward, the world was no worse for the wear.
* SplitPersonality: Donna the Bears. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Her personalities are all bears.]]
* SurrealHumor: Basically the whole point. Heck, the comic's tagline is "surreal comics for real people."
* StandardHeroReward: The White Knight's motivation for slaying the Dreadful Dragon is the hand of Princess Online Dating in marriage.
* StrangeMindsThinkAlike: Frequently.
* TinTyrant: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2013/04/22/mountain-time-447/ TORTHOS]], [[NoIndoorVoice EMPEROR OF THE INFERNAL REALM OF IUCUNDUM PRATI]].

* XDaysSince: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/02/06/mountain-time-329/ Being a supervillain.]]
* WavingSignsAround: [[http://mountaincomics.com/2012/12/06/mountain-time-414/ Branching off]] from the the whole "John 3:16" idea.
* WordSaladTitle: Comics tend to have titles like ''Immortality Through Unremarkable Yellow Stickers'' or ''Fascism's Belly Button.''
* WorldOfWeirdness
* WorstNewsJudgementEver: A running gag.
