''A webcomic about friendship, life and the art of (not) eating squirrels.''

''[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/ Sandra and Woo]]'' is a English and German-language webcomic by Oliver Knörzer and Powree, about the adventures of middle-schooler Sandra North [[ABoyAndHisX and her]] pet [[TalkingAnimal talking raccoon]], Woo. It's drawn in an {{Animesque}} style with some western comic stylizations, and makes use of mostly unconnected story arcs. Basically, imagine ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' aged up a few years, [[JustForFun/XMeetsY crossed with]] ''Series/{{iCarly}}'', and with some more serious plot threads.

Though the story most often focuses on Sandra and Woo's misadventures, the story will, at times, turn to focus on one of Sandra's two best friends, [[{{Badass}} Cloud]] and [[ChaoticNeutral Larisa]], or Woo's adventures with his woodland friends, Shadow the fox and Sid the squirrel.

There is now a [[Characters/SandraAndWoo character page.]]

----
!!''Sandra and Woo'' contains examples of:
* AbortedArc: In the comments for the January 2010 strip about Larisa's secret, Oliver Knörzer stated that he was writing the concept of an arc about Larisa's backstory, and that he planned on publishing it by fall 2011. That date came and went without any arc, and the plot of Larisa's secret would not be revisited until November 2013. At that time, Knörzer [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/11/16/about-ads-posters-and-larisas-secret/ revealed]] that he dropped the arc because he eventually disliked it and considered it not being up to the quality of the comic.
* AerithAndBob: We have believable names like Sandra and Larisa, and then we have Woo and Cloud. {{Justified|Trope}} in that Woo is a pet and Cloud was named by [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Final Fantasy nerds]] and has a sister [[ThemeNaming named]] [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Yuna]].
* AfraidOfNeedles: Enough to attempt [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/10/19/0104-animal-abuse/ reporting]] a case of animal abuse.
* AnAesop: Quite common. Occasionally border on {{Anvilicious}} {{Author Tract}}s, but so far the comic has never failed to return to lighthearted silliness very shortly afterward.
** GreenAesop: There's an arc of them.
** SpoofAesop: Crops up at the end of the insulin ban storyline, where Sandra's dad gives the IncrediblyLamePun of "ducks are bad for you," with a beer bottle in his free hand and something hand-rolled in his mouth.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Or, at least, it is if [[spoiler: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/10/14/0519-zoey-michelle/ you're gay]] and [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/10/17/0520-zoey-michelle/ your interest isn't.]]]]
* AllThereInTheManual: Landon's parents are only named in the narrative below the comic, not in the comic itself
* AlphaBitch: Zoey and her best friend Michelle.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Ye Thuza. She even joins her son's friends in making fun of him on occasion.
* AmusingInjuries: Common
* AnimalTalk: Woo and all other animals, including Woo's friends Shadow and Sid, speak the same language, but only Woo is able to communicate with humans. However, he's not talking to anyone but Sandra since he is afraid of [[TheyWouldCutYouUp ending up in a laboratory otherwise]].
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Sandra and Cloud's favorite political slogan: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/11/19/0113-freedom-justice-cookies/ "Freedom! Justice! Cookies!"]].
* ArtEvolution: A slight progression over the years, with body proportions, mainly everyone looking taller and longer.
* AscendedToCarnivorism: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/04/26/0371-predator-prey-relationship/ Ruth]] the "level 5 carnivore" pine squirrel.
* UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest: ‘[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2014/04/10/0571-a-talk-between-women/ A Talk Between Women]]’ is an AffectionateParody, passing, um, [[ExaggeratedTrope with flying colours]] the ‘something other than men’ part of the test.
* BerserkButton: Don't tease Sandra about her looks, even if you're her best friend, talking pet or even her father.
* BettyAndVeronica: Sandra and Larisa, respectively, with Cloud as {{Archie}}.
* Literature/TheBible: Subverted, Oh No! Not the apple. Oh, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/12/18/0017-the-forbidden-fruit/ the snake is fine.]]
* BigNo: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/03/01/0355-consequences/ Richard here]].
** Zoey provides [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/11/11/0527-one-of-us/ her own take]] mentally.
* BlackHelicopter: A squad of [[BlackHelicopter Black Helicopter]]s [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2014/05/26/0584-law-abiding-citizen/ appeared for investigation, after Larisa (supposedly) tried to fire a nuke]].
* ABoyAndHisX: A girl and her raccoon.
* BoysHaveCooties: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/08/17/0086-high-risk-of-infection/ Lampshaded]].
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The text below [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/11/09/0110-pie/ this]] comic should give you an idea about the arc it's part of.
** A strip [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/08/04/0296-sandra-and-woo-and-andy-warhol/ in tribute to Andy Warhol]] not only breaks the Fourth Wall, [[spoiler: it takes a bite out of it]].
** [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/11/22/0219-a-short-history-of-newspaper-comic-strips/ THE WALLS ARE GETTING CLOSER!]]
** [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/11/16/0112-the-physical-impossibility-of-falling-in-the-mind-of-someone-walking/ Woo wants to have a new writer]].
* BrokenPedestal: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-Zagged.]] After being built up for several comics, it's revealed that [[spoiler: Butterfly]] is terrified of [[spoiler: climbing difficult obstacles]], seemingly getting ready to turn into this trope. However, [[spoiler: it turns out that all Butterfly needs is a bit of encouragement from Woo, allowing her to get over her performance anxiety.]]
* TheCameo: Sir James Eglamore from ''WebComic/GunnerkriggCourt''.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Both averted and played straight. Woo is friendly with Shadow, a fox, and Sid, a squirrel. They regularly try to eat each other, but as the tagline says, fail. This doesn't stop Woo and Shadow from eating ''other'' woodland creatures, ''successfully.''
** Justified by the fact that Sid and Shadow were [[spoiler: both [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/01/20/0238-hazel-runs-no-more/ orphaned]] by a woman running over their moms, and she brought the surviving babies to a [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/01/24/0239-runaway/ friend]] of hers who took care of them until they were old enough to survive in the [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/01/31/0241-released/ wild]] ]] and [[spoiler: Shadow asks Woo not to eat Sid]].
** While hungry, Woo found a sole apple guarded by a snake, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/12/18/0017-the-forbidden-fruit/ he prefers to eat the snake]], talk about BadAss.
** Woo's reaction to catching a grey squirrel bullying the smaller and weaker Sid was to carry the squirrel off to Shadow and his family for dinner.
* {{Catchphrase}}: Woo's "Woo!" What Woo is named after, and his common reaction to pleasant surprises.
* CharacterBlog: Sandra has a [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SandyTheThird YouTube channel]], also going by her alter ego Sandy the Third, empress and supreme ruler of Northia, there.
* ChildrenAreInnocent: Defied to the point of being a recurring {{Aesop}}. Larisa, in addition to being generally vindictive, is a pyromaniac, and one strip has her, confronted with sushi, casually pull out the lighter she carries to set fires and cook it. Cloud's mother is a former Shan ChildSoldier in Burma, and she frequently deals with relatives being menaced or killed by the SPCD.
* ClothingDamage: Woo leaps on Sandra at one point in a hyped-up state, and tears her clothes to shreds, leaving her in her panties. Much controversy in the comments box, under the circumstances....
* CrossOver: Sir James Eglamore and the god Coyote from Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt have appeared in the comic, which seems to state the two comics take place in the same universe.
* CowTools: Parodied with [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/01/08/0023-coon-tools/ this]].
* CrushBlush: Landon
* DeadpanSnarker: Sandra, sometimes.
* DealWithTheDevil: Parodied in [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/06/25/0071-how-not-to-deal-with-the-devil/ this strip]] as Sandra accidentally sells her soul to the devil for a glass of lemonade.
* DeathByOriginStory: [[spoiler:Sid's mother, Hazel.]] We hardly knew ye.
* DeconstructiveParody: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/08/06/0400-the-early-sandra-catches-the-worm/ Of the eponymous duo.]]
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Pain is [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/06/06/0279-special-attack-i/ painful]].
** [[spoiler: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/10/17/0520-zoey-michelle/ Only really gay lesbos]] kiss each other on the mouth.]] Keep that in mind"
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Larisa grumbling.
-->'''Sandra:''' [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/06/07/0171-guilty-as-defended/ "Some people just shouldn't defend themselves."]]
** Sandra does it to herself ''without even saying anything''. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/07/26/0397-silence-is-silver/ Silence is not always golden]].
* DontAsk: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/11/20/the-moment-of-dawning-comprehension/ "What the hell?"]]
* [[EatsBabies Eats Puppies]]: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/04/30/0372-junk-food/ Ruth]] [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant claims to eat wolf pups]]. She's already proved surprisingly adept with a gun despite being a squirrel.
* EngagingConversation: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/10/14/0208-pizza-ii/ Probably]]. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/12/22/0336-the-poem-iv/#comments And this.]]

* ExiledToTheCouch: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/03/28/0467-dirty-cheater/ Hey, David dared to cheat on an unreal tournament deathmatch.]]
* FacePalm: DiggingYourselfDeeper
* FacialProfiling: The parents of Larisa have pronounced cheekbones and jaw-lines to have them look more Slavic.
* FantasyKitchenSink: While not really delved upon, the comic takes place in the same world as Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt so its not unusal to see Ghosts, aliens, mermaids, talking animals and Gods and Goddesses.
* FirstKiss: [[MomentKiller After three attempts were broken up]]--[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/05/17/0165-kissus-interruptus/ the first by]] [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/12/13/0226-bulls-eye-i/ Cloud's sister and mother]], [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/12/13/0226-bulls-eye-i/ the second by a soccer ball]], [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/07/11/0289-moment-kisser/ and the third]] [[LesYay by Larisa]]--[[{{Determinator}} Sandra and Cloud got fed up]] [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/07/14/0290-the-kiss/ and made sure nobody would interrupt them again]].
** Humorously enough, ''both'' of their first kisses came from Larisa.
** Of course, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/11/26/0115-first-kiss/ Sandra doesn't count this one]].
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Butterfly, a raccoon brought up for only a mention in [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/09/12/0510-climbing-grades/ #510]], shows up in the second longest Sandra and Woo story arc starting with [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/11/21/0530-the-special-one-football-manager/ #530]]
* FoodSlap: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/02/11/0137-the-worst-of-all-possible-replies/ Sandra to her father, after he accidentally agreed with Larisa's assessment of her looks]].
* FunnyTerrainCrossSection: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/08/02/0399-shiver/ In this strip]].
* GeniusBonus: [[invoked]] Parodied mercilessly; in response to claims that the webcomic wasn't challenging enough, the two introduced a simple 4-panel strip that, to read, one would have to solve a crossword puzzle, speak a certain Malay language, carry out a series of word puzzles, and have a bit of knowledge regarding coding, ASCII, and RGB values.
* {{Glomp}}: Sandra gives an ''epic'' one to Cloud after he [[spoiler:[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/12/22/0336-the-poem-iv/ gives her a love letter]]]].
* GoLookAtTheDistraction!: '''[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/05/23/0274-last-resort/ Look!! A talking raccoon!!!]]''' Said by a talking raccoon in front of the guy.

* HappilyMarried:
** Cloud's parents.
** Shadow and Echo
** Woo and Lily, [[spoiler: who seem to commit to monogamy in the "Dark and Stormy Night" ark, which is rare for raccoons.]]
** Presumably, Sandra's parents, Richard and the late Julie North.
* HotTeacher: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/09/16/0511-a-visitor-from-england/ Sir James Eglamore]].
* {{Hypocrite}}[=/=]DoubleStandard: The principal gives Larisa an earful about drugs while smoking.
* IllGirl: Larisa has diabetes and [[spoiler:takes various other drugs for as-of now unknown illnesses]].
* InnocentInnuendo: {{Subverted}}. After a recent adventure, Lily suggests Woo relax with "eating, sleeping and...cuddling". When they get to the "cuddling" strip, they show a tree and make it sound like Woo's having difficulty. [[spoiler: The comic shows they're playing billiards. But then comes [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/09/05/0305-cuddling/ this:]]]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Lily:''' [[DoYouWantToCopulate Let’s mate once again instead.]] [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex You’re infinitely better at that]].]]\\
[[spoiler:'''Woo:''' [[BigYes WOO!]]]]

[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/08/12/0190-apology/ After she was told, that it's an very offensive swearword, she apologized]].
* IntellectualAnimal: Shadow might be the most prominent example for this trope since he's for example able to come up with a rhyming [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/07/02/0073-summer-by-the-lakeside/ carnivorous anthem]].
* TheInternetIsForPorn: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/02/22/0140-fallout/ Woo uses YouTube to get videos of racoons getting it on]].

* KissingUnderTheInfluence: To celebrate Butterfly's successful climb, Seeoahtlahmakaskay declares [[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy early mating season]].
* LaymansTerms: Inverted in [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/10/28/0212-techno-babble/ this strip]]. "These are management consultants. From IBM. They don't understand your "{{Technobabble}}"."
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: A [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/09/02/0196-no-night-in-spiderman/ brief gag with Cloud's parents]]
* LimitedWardrobe: Averted: the characters obviously wear the same clothes when comics takes place sequentially, and change to hint a new day happens.
* [[LikeFatherLikeSon Like Father, Like Daughter]]: Larisa is, like her father, an accomplished painter, buth with different styles (Larisa is also a sculptor, which in case of her father wasn't confirmed yet).
* LovesMeNot: Played with [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/12/02/0222-plucking-daisies-i/ here]]

* MatterOfLifeAndDeath: Food, necessary to maintain the art of not eating squirrels.
* MediumAwareness: The characters [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/11/20/the-moment-of-dawning-comprehension/ apparently]] know the comic's [[spoiler:update schedule.]]
* MemeticMutation: In universe, a video of Cloud taking down a thug was "more popular than free bacon." [[spoiler:It turns out that this was all part of Larisa's BatmanGambit to help out her dad's website.]]
* MissingMom: Sandra's mother Julie died of an yet unknown cause [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/01/15/0025-an-overdue-visit/ two years before the comic began]].
* MistakenForJunkie: Larisa, who is diabetic, is caught by a teacher when giving herself an insulin shot during recess. She's then sent to the principal who informs her that taking this "dangerous drug" violates the school's zero tolerance policy against drugs. The plot was inspired by a [[TruthInTelevision similar incident on a U.S. middle school in the 1990s]]. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/05/18/0060-addicted/ Start reading here.]]
* MomentKiller:

* MoneySpider: Lampshaded.
-->'''Cloud:''' Seventeen dollars?
* MoodWhiplash: Particularly where [[ChildSoldier Ye Thuza]] is concerned. Also, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/01/04/0126-secrets/ this strip]] which reveals that [[spoiler: Larisa's health problems may be more serious than she lets on to her friends.]]

* NoodleIncident: Do we really want to know how [[spoiler: playing "Truth or Dare" with Larisa]] can cause [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/09/19/0309-important-advice/ psychological trauma?]]
** Or for that matter, why the school felt the need to specifically ban dueling between teachers and students.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: Surprisingly {{Averted}}. Granted, all the main characters have {{Vague Age}}s, but through a series of conscious {{Art Evolution}}s on the part of the author, the kids have progressively grown older. Compare the [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/10/27/homesickness/ this strip from 2008]] to [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/07/25/0293-homecoming-i/ one from 2011]]. Take special note of Sandra's size compared to Richard's.

** [[spoiler:Woo and Lily, starting [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/05/09/0480-a-dark-and-stormy-night-x/ here]]. Note that raccons normally don't settle down to monogamy, so Lily's expression is really touching.]]
* PaedoHunt: Mercilessly parodied. Larisa comes to a terrifying conclusion after dressing as a pedophile for Halloween:
-->'''Larisa:''' Could it be that I '''am''' a pedo?\\
'''Sandra:''' What?\\
'''Larisa:''' Well, I’m totally into cute 12-year-old boys. '''12-year-old boys, Sandy!!'''\\
'''Sandra:''' Totally disgusting… especially for a 12-year-old girl like you.\\
[...]\\
'''Larisa:''' You, on the other hand, seem to be '''solely''' interested in boys of your own age!\\

* RunningGag: Sid is friends with Woo and Shadow which does not stop them from trying to eat him on a constant basis. And when they're not trying to eat him, their mates or other predators are.
* SavageWolves: Wolves are frequent antagonists in the comics.
* SceneryCensor: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/03/04/0143-love-at-first-sight/ This one]], censoring Woo's thoughts with shrubbery.
* SchoolgirlLesbians: It looks like this is what [[spoiler: Zoey and Michelle]] are going to become, but [[spoiler: it turns out that Michelle doesn't reciprocate Zoey's feelings.]]
* SelfDeprecation: A meta example.

** Frequently to ''CalvinAndHobbes'', and many more to video games, namely ''Franchise/FinalFantasy''. A couple even named their two younger children Cloud and Yuna after the game.
** Probably not an intentional one, but Sandra could be a dead ringer for [[VideoGame/MegaMan Roll]].
** Often wearing [[InspectorGadget Penny's]] shirt, no less.
** Several characters have been seen watching ''Franchise/WallaceAndGromit'' and ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' as well.
** Many of the posters and filer strips give to an artist, movie, television series or other comics.
** This [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/12/14/0120-i-hope-you-like-long-sentences/ strip]] is a nod to this famous ''PennyArcade'' [[http://penny-arcade.com/comic/2006/04/10 strip.]]
** [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2008/10/19/a-sly-raccoon/ A racoon named]] [[Franchise/SlyCooper Sly and a veeery familiar looking cane]].
** I am better Than both The Bologna and the Salami combined is one to the RockosModernLife episode, "Wacky Delly."
** A green, bubbling liquid you call "[[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/01/12/0341-the-dip/ The Dip]]" and which can kill imaginary characters. Now, [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit where could I have seen that...]]
** Several MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic toys have appeared in the background... and foreground. Sandra has a Fluttershy doll, and at one point Cloud and his mom play with other toys of the Mane Six.
** [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/04/27/0054-fifty-fear/ In one strip]], Sandra becomes a strange mixture of [[Film/KillBill Beatrix Kiddo]] and [[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon Alma Wade]] on Cloud, who previously had went [[Film/TheDarkKnight Joker]] on her.
** Larisa's family name is Korolev. The most famous RealLife person with the same family name was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Korolev Sergei Korolev]], the number-one designer of Soviet rockets and space craft. Many consider him having practically invented "practical astronautics".

** Sandra'a having TheScream, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/11/03/0322-sandras-scream/ after she remembers making a mistake in a maths exam]].
* SpaghettiKiss: Subverted when [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/08/29/0303-eating/ Woo and Lily share an earthworm, but Lily sucks it out of Woo's mouth before they kiss]].
* SpotlightStealingSquad: Would be played straight, but is avoided by the fact that the writer decided to legally give the spotlight to Cloud and Larisa instead, officially elevating them to Woo's level of focus.
* StockAnimalName: Woo is initially christened 'Rascal'. He isn't pleased.
* StuffedIntoATrashcan:
** Done to Ralph by Cloud. It was a ShoutOut to Webcomic/OzyAndMillie where the trope was commonly abused by JerkJock, Jeremy.
** A sufficiently angered Sandra does this to Larisa after [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/02/08/0136-theres-still-hope/ one biting remark too many.]]
* StrawFeminist: The new biology teacher, [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2014/07/07/0596-97-points/ Dorothy Cambrigde and the Moral Police.]]
* SuddenSchoolUniform: Literally. Powree just started drawing the kids in identical white polos and dark pants without mention in the dialogue at all, let alone a subplot.
* TakeThat:
** [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/01/05/0339-little-red-riding-pony/ In regards]] to the ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy of WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic merchandise.
** And the GeniusBonus [[invoked]] comic that required programming knowledge, understanding of a foreign language, extensive knowledge of the comic's history and comments and solving several word puzzles to figure out? [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/01/03/0338-a-challenging-comic-solution/ All for a zinger]] at newspaper comic ''{{Marvin}}''.
* TalkingAnimal:
** Woo, Shadow, Sid and all other animals. (see AnimalTalk above)
** Might just be Woo, since he can understand talk to humans.
* TearsOfJoy: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/08/12/0503-paradise-falls/ They don't need to watch the Paradise Falls to be happy together.]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Awwww.]]
* TeenPregnancy: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2014/08/07/0605-teenage-pregnancy/ Discussed here]]. Clearly, Ye Thuza does ''not'' want this to happen to Sandra and Cloud.
* ThatCameOutWrong: Sandra, you shouldn't bad mouth rebels (even in a roleplay game) when [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/11/14/0325-mcm310/ the son of a former real-life rebel is hearing you]].
* ThemeNaming: The Williams family named him and his sister after ''Final Fantasy'' characters. One is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud]] and the other is [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX Yuna]].
* TheyFightCrime:
** Cloud's family spends one [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/07/12/0181-pussy/ arc]] doing this in superhero garb.
** {{Subverted}}. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/08/26/0194-its-fiction-all-the-way-down/ They were making a fictional video]].
* ThisIsReality: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/10/05/0100-love-hate-etc/ Sometimes it’s not like in the movies where everything will be alright again in the end.]]
* ThroughAFaceFullOfFur: Lily [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/03/22/0148-damn-instincts/ here]]
* TooDumbToLive: Yes, Tom the Talking Toast. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/01/26/0345-the-contender-iii/ Play yourself up in front of a girl who can't decide what she wants for breakfast.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: Woo. One year he lets two of alpha raccoon Tibor's mooks [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2009/02/19/0035-reliable-sources/ have a girl he was courting uncontested]]. The next year, when he courts Lily ([[spoiler:Tibor's daughter]]), he [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2010/03/15/0146-disordered-retreat/ runs them out of the forest]].
* TooMuchInformation: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/09/08/0306-too-much-information/ Tell me less]].
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible:[[invoked]] [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2012/08/23/0405-the-archer/ Discussed in an arc]] in which Sandra and Larisa spend a day at the MOMA.
* TheUnreveal: We never find out what Cloud wrote that caused Sandra to pounce on him, remove half his clothes, and beg him to marry her, though it does contain the line "Sandy's shining eyes".
** Page 528, Larisa's Big Secret: Larisa finally tells Zoey what's been haunting pretty much every fan's mind for the last four years... [[TrollingCreator AND RIGHT THEN AND THERE THE COMIC EXPERIENCES ITS FIRST EVER CASE OF TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES!]] All we get are Zoey's reactions to Larisa's reveal... It doesn't seem like it's good news. At all.
* VagueAge: The implication, through ArtEvolution, is that they are aging in real-time, but the only certainty is that Cloud, Larisa and Sandra are, as of 2012, 12 years old.
* ViewersAreGeniuses: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2011/04/11/0261-rule-number-one/ This page]] takes it as a given that the reader knows why running blindly through tall grass and bushes is an unsafe idea. Unfortunately, most of those readers don't seem to go outside very often, as it went over everyone's head.
* VisualPun: [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/07/15/0499-happy-ending/#comments The puppet government.]]
* WeAllLiveInAmerica: Knörzer and Powree are German and Indonesian respectively, but most of S&W points to a U.S. setting.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: In the vein of CalvinAndHobbes, albeit further away from the family-friendly end.
* YouFailLogicForever: How is taking food about to be given to a hungry fox ''not'' your fault when said fox angrily chases you?
** Videogame characters will soon be indistinguishable from real life, therefore, we are video game characters.
*** Somewhat justified, given that it was said by a little girl.
