[[http://www.cheercomic.com/ The Wotch: Cheer!]] ([[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-08-09 first comic]]) is a [[Main/{{Spinoff}} spinoff]] of TheWotch [[http://www.thewotch.com/]] (obviously). It revolves around the misadventures of four cheerleaders ([[GenderBender who used to be]] [[JerkJock jerk jocks]]) at Tandy Gardens High School, [[ExtranormalInstitute which is a much stranger place than it seems]]. Seems to be a deadfic. The main characters include:

* Alexandra "Alex" King, the leader: prone to [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness long, dramatic speeches.]] Quite wealthy, but hides it (she's sort of a NonIdleRich).
* Cher "Lita" Harper, a [[GamerChick D&D player]] and BigEater, and not afraid to use her [[ChickMagnet dude magnet]] powers to get her way.
* Samantha "Sam" Smith, an artistic homebody who creates the uniforms and choreography.
* Johanna "Jo" Star, a [[Main/{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Cloudcuckoolander]], and the only one of the four who remembers life before being transformed.

----
!!This Webcomic provides examples of:
* AbsoluteCleavage - Primarily with Agent 32, although Lita's outfits also tend to show off quite a bit. She's even shown jealousy of 32's [[http://cheer.thewotch.com/index.php?date=20060302 superior chest-based]][[IHaveBoobsYouMustObey persuasion powers.]]
** Karen too, [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-02-13 though she's not very happy about it]].
* AllCheeringAllTheTime - A notable aversion. The four all have wildly different personalities; Alex treats the cheer squad as a glorious military unit.
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders - subverted six ways to Sunday, up to and including [[GenderBender "All Guys Want To Be Cheerleaders"]] in Jo's case.
* [[AllMenArePerverts All Men Are Perverts]] - Pointed out [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-02-13 here]], and played straight [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-02-17 here,]]
* AlphaBitch - Tamara Cass and, to a lesser degree, Lindsay Verte. Also the Ekaltsew High cheerleaders.
* [[AnimeHair Anime Hair]] - [[Main/{{Lampshaded}} Lampshaded]] [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-04-27 here]]
* ArtEvolution
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny - Alex seems to have a mild case of ADD, noticeable only when she tries to go off on one of her long-winded speeches and gets derailed.
* BavarianFireDrill: After getting rid of the (male) principal, Agent 32 manages to convince a teacher and some students that she is the principal--no, not a new one, the same one as ever.
* {{BFS}} - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-10-31 Two of them, in this filler comic.]]
** Obviously, the Masamune and Buster Sword from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.
* [[Main/{{Bifauxnen}} Bifauxnen]] - Alex in a suit, as shown [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-05-25 here]]
* [[BigEater Big Eater]] - Lita has been shown to be quite a [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-06-01 fan of beef.]]
* BodyHorror - Alex's minotaur transformation wasn't exactly the type of "poof" that transformations took on in [[TheWotch the parent comic]].
* TheCheerleader - very much averted; The only collective adjective ever used for the squad as a whole is "kind".
* [[ClothingDamage Clothing Damage]] - Alex's transformations do a number on her outfits.
* [[Main/{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Cloudcuckoolander]] - Jo, as proven [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-08-08 here]]
** TheCuckoolanderWasRight - Jo is frighteningly aware of a large number of things she shouldn't be aware of, and not just her past as "Colin." It borders on being some sort of psychic or oracle.
* ConvergentNonSequitur - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-10-27 Two geese]], [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-12-13 a roll of duct tape]], [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-08-08 23 toothpicks]], [[NoodleImplements and some sodium benzoate.]]
** "There won't be enough sandwich baggies in the world..."
* EmbarrassingFirstName - Lita
* EmptyPilesOfClothing - Alex leaves these behind when she (apparently) turns into a small fairy or bug in the middle of an assembly. Naturally, when she pops up later, she's in desperate need of clothing.
* [[ExplosiveInstrumentation Explosive Instrumentation]] - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-07-10 Poor, poor Mary.]]
* [[EyesAlwaysShut Eyes Always Shut]] - Agent 40
* [[Main/{{Fanservice}} Fanservice]] - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-08-25 This.]] Also Agent 32, on purpose. [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-03-02 * ka-flirt* ]]
* FirstLawOfGenderBending
* GambitPileup- The student assembly ends up being one of these, with a ''minimum'' of six different plans being set in motion (with some other people simply [[IndyPloy winging it]]).
* GamerChick - Lita, of the tabletop RPG variety
* GenderBender - our four hero(ines), later Peter Hall.
* GeniusDitz - Jo again, who is [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-10-06 surprisingly]] [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-10-08 observant]] and spookily [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-06-22 insightful]] when she wants to be.
* GoSeduceMyArchNemesis
* GratuitousEnglish - Lampshaded in [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-07-06 this]] comic: "Maybe with an accent...Faiaa Bouru!"
* HalfIdenticalTwin - Lita has two siblings who fit the bill. They even have the 'finishing each others' sentences' bit down pat.
* [[HowDoIShotWeb How Do I Shot Web]] - Jo found an obviously magic wand as a toy in a happy meal. She still can't figure out how to use it.
** Except as a club: [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-07-06 "Pretty Cosmic Crystal Rainbow Overhead Smash!"]]
* [[InvoluntaryShapeshifting Involuntary Shapeshifting]] - Aside from the original GenderBender, 32 turns Alex into a minotaur for help during the invasion. Since then, she's prone to weird transformations during emotional duress, but she never recalls any of her episodes.
* JediMindTrick - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-01-28 Fails]] miserably.
* KudzuPlot - The first chapter sets up a large number of immediate issues, none of which actually get resolved any time soon.
* LargeHam - Alex.
* [[MadScientist Mad Scientist]] - Mary Miller, who even bears the title in the cast page, and created a pie launcher that used an AI to target for [[RuleOfFunny maximum comedic value.]][[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2007-08-22 See it here!]]
* MeaningfulName - Cher Lita Harper. Think about it.
* MissingMom - Sam, implied to be due to DeathByChildbirth
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody - The girls act like girls, dress like girls, think like girls, and even [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-04-13 throw like girls.]]
** [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-07-20 "Is charging something a good plan? It seems like a good plan..."]]
* MotorMouth (Alex. Unfortunately, she also has [[AttentionDeficitOohShiny Attention Deficit...Ooh, Shiny!]], which means her long-winded speeches can end up wildly off-track.)
** Her occasional SesquipedalianLoquaciousness doesn't help matters either.
* NoNameGiven - The agents in ''Cheer!''
* NoodleImplements - Apparently there's a lot you can do with two geese, a roll of duct tape, twenty-three toothpicks and some sodium benzoate.
** This is even parodied in a [[ guest comic]], when the artist speculates exactly what those things are used for, but can only come to the conclusion that it causes vague panic in most people.
* NoodleIncident - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-06-25 Apparently involving a moose in the Dance Club's room...]] [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial which Alex knows nothing about.]]
* [[Main/{{Otaku}} Otaku]] - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-07-21 Alex dreams of D-Day,]] [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-10-18 and knows quite a bit about military weaponry.]]
** And her ring-tone is the 1812 Overture. Y'know, the one that uses a ''cannon''.
* [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness The Omniscient Council Of Vagueness]] - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-09-03 The Council]]
* OrphanedSeries: Hasn't updated since July 15, 2011.
* [[OverprotectiveDad Overprotective Dad]] - played with [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-06-13 here.]] Bonus for Alex beating him to the sandwich baggie line.
* [[PaperThinDisguise Paper Thin Disguise]] - Agent 32, pretending to be principal O'Brian. Note that O'Brian was a rather unattractive old ''man'', and Agent 32 is, [[TheVamp well]]... [[MsFanservice not.]] And her disguise is to just flirt with whoever asks until they [[DistractedByTheSexy forget what they were asking about.]]
* ParentalAbandonment - Alex, who is shown spending Christmas Eve strumming her guitar alone (sniff) and even gets her allowance via direct deposit.
** [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-04-15 "Hello Darkness..., my old friend..."]]
* PlayingCyrano - Max & Xander
* RetGone: The Girls' former JerkJock identities, which is generally a good thing since nobody liked them much, [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-05-30 but the realization that no one remembers any of the good things they did either is enough to bring Jo to tears at one point.]]
** [[RippleEffectProofMemory RetGone-Proof Memory]] - Jo still remembers being a boy. Subconsciously, Alex does, too, as evidenced by some of her dreams. Also, ''TheWotch'' established that the girls' parents know that they used to be boys.
*** That was more of an AuthorsSavingThrow, as people were calling out Anne for forcibly changing people against their will, so by saying that, it would be ok (as Cheer does make it clear while they were JerkJocks for the most of it they were still the same people) plus it gets mentioned in TheWotch.
*** [[TheWotch Anne's Feminist Pride]] says that spells can bring forth or diminish personality traits, but can't change personality completely. Thus, the cheerleaders are basically the same people they always were; it's implied their JerkJock behavior in their old life was because they thought that's how jocks ''should'' act and/or were overcompensating for their more "feminine" (sensitive) inner natures.
**** Implied nothing, in a wotch one shot comic 'Jo' expressed extreme hatred of how his male body and large 'football' hands made it difficult to do arts and crafts which he enjoyed, this was follwed by a ghostly image of his future girl sself hugging the boy sadly.
* RichBitch - Alex and Lindsay. Averted in Alex's case (she funded the Cheerleaders' post-GenderBender wardrobe binge out of her own pocket) and semi-averted in Lindsay, who isn't a RichBitch so much as completely clueless about the way common people live.
* RunningGag - Several, but especially agent 32's tripping people while invisible.
** Also the NoodleImplements, which have been mentioned by multiple characters.
** "Miss O'Brien!" "Who?"
* ScaryBlackMan (Bruce Camaro. A pretty cool dude, but he ''is'' a bodyguard and therefore "intimidating" is in the job description.)
* ScheduleSlip - Following the typical webcomic arc from two to three times a week in the beginning to once or twice a month more or less at random lately.
* SdrawkcabName - The rival high school is Ekaltsew.
* SecondLawOfGenderBending - Jo only; the others don't appear to remember.
* ShipTease - 29/32, Alex/Lita.
* ShoutOut - pay attention to [[Series/{{Firefly}} what]] Jo is doing in [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2005-11-17 this]] strip...
** [[AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs All your]] [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-01-24 wand]] [[ZeroWing are belong to us!]]
** She's also a fan of "[[Franchise/SailorMoon Windjammer Luna]]".
** It seems the wand is a shout out machine...causing Jo to shout out things such as [[{{Slayers}} Dragon Slave]], [[MegumiHayashibara Fira Baru]], and [[Franchise/FinalFantasy Meteor]].
* SleepCute - [[http://cheer.thewotch.com/index.php?date=20080625 As if we didn't already have enough evidence to support Alex/Lita...]]
** Even the author thinks they're cute.
* StatingTheSimpleSolution - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2008-10-11 "He's standing right there..."]]
* TheStoic - Agent 29.
* ThirdLawOfGenderBending - In a big, big way, made explicit in canon.
* TomboyishName - Alex, Sam, and Jo, though ironically enough their girl names bear less relationship to their former male names (Aaron, Gene, and Colin) then Cher's does to her former male name of [[ShoutOut "Sonny"]].
* UnclePennybags: Alex is secretly very rich, but hides all mention of it because she's not fond of her distant parents.
* [[UnsoundEffect Unsound Effect]] - part of the Wotch tradition, with new levels including ''mysterious trip!'' and ''THAC0'D!''
* WeirdnessCensor - Lita's mother knows she used to be a boy but hasn't said anything because Lita seems much happier as a girl.
** In fact, it's established in ''TheWotch'' that ''all'' the families know, it's just that ''none'' of them ever said anything to the girls themselves, possibly due to Miranda's influence.
*** Or because Lita's mom at least is either ''really'' accepting of things or a ditz.
* {{Yandere}} - [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-09-30 Agent 40]], aka "That Grinning, Psychopathic Harlot", not that she tries to hide it.
* ZettaiRyouiki - Agent 32. [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-04-22 God,]] [[http://www.cheercomic.com/?date=2006-07-15 Agent 32]]. Also Alex.
