'''''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/ Eerie Cuties]]''''' is a webcomic created and drawn by [[PennyAndAggie Gisèle]] [[Webcomic/MenageA3 Lagacé]] which started on June 1, 2009 and follows the adventures of Layla and Nina Delacroix, two vampire sisters, at Charybdis Heights. On the first day they have met a French teacher with a [[EvilHand possessed arm]], a young succubus, a {{catboy}}, a {{werewolf}} and a masked janitor. As with her previous works, the comic is a mix of slice-of-life and sitcom set within a school atmosphere, most of the jokes being typical of a series set in high school, but in a supernatural one.

It's co-written by both Gisèle Lagacé and "Dave Zero1" Lumsdon, with colors done by Miguel Marques in the first volume. With the shift to full page black & white manga style, inks (and other inputs) by [[{{SPRINGIETTE}} Shouri]].

The [[GirlPosse Hellrune Coven]] got a SpinOff strip, ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'', and more recently a second spin-off ''Webcomic/DangerouslyChloe'' appeared, following the adventures of Succubus Chloe Love.

Now has a [[Characters/EerieCuties character page.]]

----
!!''Eerie Cuties'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AccidentalKiss: Nina unintentionally smooched Kade, as she fell on top of him, once Tiffany and the others successfully lured [[EvilTwin the Nina-ganger]] back into the cursed mirror. She was upset about it, as it was her [[SacredFirstKiss first]], but she developed a crush on him soon afterward.
* AddedAlliterativeAppeal: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/who_set_all_this_up Blair gets one]], however creepy it is.
-->'''Blair:''' Oh, Chloe! How I miss your massive malleable mammary mounds!
* AlcoholHic: Nina, after drinking some (chocolate-flavored) Baileys. Chloe too.
* AllGhoulsSchool: Charybdis Heights is for cryptids only (with the possible exception of [[HumanAlien Prof. Twiggit]]) and both the groundskeeper and its students take measures [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/a_little_wuv to keep humans]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/sneezeweed from nosing around]] their school.
* AllGirlsLikePonies: Nina is turned into a boy when she's hit by a gender-changing orb; when she changes back into a girl, she says: "Hey! I like ponies again!"
* AlmostKiss: It almost happens between Brooke and Layla, at the end of Nina's slumber party, until Layla remembered they already had, during the ''"Kissing Booth"'' incident*[[note]]featured as a bonus story, exclusive to the print edition of Vol.0, during which Brooke showed up in line and dared Layla to kiss her in an attempt to get the booth closed down (since the booth had two strikes against it between Chloe and Melissa). Meaning, had Layla refused, it would've been a third strike which would have forced Layla to take the booth down. Layla refused to let that happen, so she laid one on her, causing the booth to become [[GirlOnGirlIsHot an instant success.]] Brooke walked away blushing and stunned speechless, while Layla gloated[[/note]] and figured Brooke owed her a bite.
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Nina thinks of her mom like [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/sweetest_blood this]] sometimes. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/no_buts Layla]]... [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_spoils_of_war! might]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/going_through_a_phase concur.]]
* AmplifierArtifact: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/normal_pair The Doom Panties™]] are designed to enhance a succubus' natural abilities. Which isn't a problem, so long as they aren't worn prematurely. Which guaranteed that [[TemptingFate that was exactly what happened.]]
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Melissa Hellrune and her friends laugh at people who believe in a cursed mirror...despite attending a school for various mythical beings and being witches themselves.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: Used twice, during the series:
** When Nina told Chloe she was starving, Chloe assumed Nina wanted to feed on her and panicked. But soon relented and offered Nina her neck, except Nina was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/take_what_you_need!_ busy scarffing down Chloe's chocolate.]]
** Tiffany had a similar reaction, when Layla yanked her into the dressing-room, while she was on her job at the mall. She expected Layla to feed on her and was apparently looking forward to it, despite being caught by surprise. But she was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/staking_customers noticeably disappointed]] when all Layla wanted, was help trying on her dress.
* ArrangedMarriage: Layla's father chose a future spouse for her when she was an infant. Layla only found out about this when she was 16. Suffice to say, she wasn't happy about it. [[spoiler:[[PerfectlyArrangedMarriage Until she saw the would-be groom]], anyway]]. [[ZigZaggingTrope But she can't decide]]. And he's ordered to stay there until he marries ''someone''.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Nina happily tells Ace about all the horrors [[spoiler: Queen Lamia]] committed, [[ChildrenAreInnocent while failing to understand the meaning]] of what she's saying, before adding this tidbit at the end:
-->'''Nina: (reading to Ace)''' [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/kitty "...Also, she had a kitty. Its name was Mr. Boodles."]]
* ArtifactOfDoom: In a school full of monsters, witches, and an eccentric [[MadScientist science professor]] there was bound to be a couple of cursed relics.
** The Orb of Tiresias is said to be one. According to Melissa, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_it! it's a level-5 magical artifact]] that has [[GenderBender the power to change anyone's gender]] in accordance to the user's will. In the wrong hands, human life on Earth would become extinct within several generations.
** The Doom Panties are also cursed and are only meant to be worn by succubi, which is why they have to be locked away in a special seal. It's said that they draw out a succubus' true potential, assuming they're of age and can properly control their powers. Chloe put them on, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_feel_so_awesome not knowing what they were]], because her mother is irresponsible enough to simply [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/instant_ice_key leave them lying around]] where anyone can find them.
* ArtShift: More like a format shift. From colored newspaper like strips to more b&w manga like pages to allow more room for storytelling. The former has been collected in a volume set and now on sale for purchase.
* AscendedExtra: Cess and Laura who appeared as [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/hey_sis! background characters]], and Cess as [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/%28preferably_me%29 the girl]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_exactly_her_type caught making out with Kade]] before they moved up to queen-bee wannabees.
* AttractiveBentGender: Happens to a lot of guys in the arc "Big Girls Don't Cry", Case in point:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cutie-pie! panel 2]]. And in that same strip, even Kade admits to thinking this. The attractive part at least, since he doesn't know about the other part. There are probably some female fans that could say Nina (or would it be Nino, now?) fits this trope as well.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Layla and Kade. While their relationship for most part [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/%28preferably_me%29 doesn't look very healthy]], they [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/for_my_next_trick have]] (the interesting part is that Chloe evidently ''counted on this'') their [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/why_are_you_crying_brooke moments]].
* BackFromTheDead: Done humorously, since Tiffany [[AnAstralProjectionNotAGhost wasn't dead to begin with.]] She simply assumed she was, because she had [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/quality_evil_at_last! tripped and fallen on her father's sword]]; not knowing [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/secret_compartment it was harmless.]]
* BarelyThereSwimwear: Layla's string bikini, [[spoiler: which goes from barely there to gone]]. Much to Kade's delight.
* BigNo: Layla's reaction to Blair uploading [[spoiler: the footage of her and Brooke]] to his Website/YouTube account.
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The local GirlPosse; Melissa (blonde), Jacqui (brunette) and Cerise (redheaded).
* BloodMagic: While it was not ''intended'' as such, Tiffany with Layla's "help" [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/a_good_meal accidentally discovered]] that a vampire bite can instantly terminate [[AstralProjection magical out-of-body session]].
* BrainBleach: Layla and Chloe both [[TooMuchInformation looked liked they could've used some]], when Maria alluded to some of the things she used to do with Chloe's mom. Brooke made certain to [[CoverInnocentEyesAndEars cover Nina's ears.]]
* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: [[KryptoniteIsEverywhere Crosses, mirrors]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cross-shaped_mirror cross-shaped mirror]].
* BreastExpansion: Seen throughout the Tiresias Orb incident, once Blair got his hands on it and ran amok changing every female (and male) he saw into [[BuxomIsBetter big breasted]] [[DumbBlonde blonde bimbos.]] Which was revealed to be [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boing his idea of the ideal woman.]]
* BrickJoke:
** Remember when Layla said that she [[spoiler:didn't want the planned kiss between her and Brooke ending up on Blair's YouTube account?]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/youtube Take a wager what happened a couple days later...]] Given the circumstances it also doubles as TemptingFate.
** At the School Dance, Girl!Ace wishes that [[GenderBender the curse]] could be broken with a kiss, like in a fairy tale. [[BiTheWay Brooke]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/worth_a_shot decides it's worth a shot...]] but nothing happens. Turns out that Brooke [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/kiss_boys was just the wrong sex.]]
* BuffySpeak: Nina on what she wants to do on a date: "Date stuff... fun datey-type stuff... that date people do on dates for fun and--"
* BuxomIsBetter:
** After puberty hit Chloe, she became a lot more popular among boys.
** When Cess and Laura lose their huge succubus boobs (succuboobs?) they ''immediately'' [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/happy_endings lost the attention of two boys that were hitting on them]].
* CallBack: Kade probably finds [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_am_too_bashful! Ace's butt]] pretty cute [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cutie-pie! now]].
* CanadaEh: It's rarely mentioned, but the series is set [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/that_tiffany_girl in Thornhill, Canada.]] Dio also mentioned it, during his double date with Layla and Kade.
-->'''Dio:''' (''thinking'') Canadian courtship is so... ''bold''!
* CaptainErsatz: Melissa looks a lot like [[VideoGame/{{Persona4}} Ai Ebihara.]]
* CatFight: Layla and Brooke aren't exactly what you'd call "friends" and have gotten into at least two hair-pulling contests:
** The first was during the Chloe "zombie" scare, after Layla deliberately covered Brooke in Chloe's pheromones, since Brooke implied she was old. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/popular_with_the_boys Which lead to fight round 1.]]
** There was also the time [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/watch_the_hands! Brooke sprayed Layla]], for volunteering her and [[spoiler: girl-]]Ace for surprise makeovers at Nina's slumber party. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/no_buts More hair-pulling ensued...]]
* CatsAreMean: Mr. Boodles. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/most_cross_indeed%21 Apparently able to decapitate a werewolf warrior with a single swipe of the paw]].
* CensorSteam: In keeping with the comic's PG-13 rating, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/rorrim_ni_deppart towels and bath steam]] were used to preserve the Hellrunes' modesty while they were in the school's shower.
* CleaningThisGun: Melissa's dad does this to her date, except he's a dungeon-raiding-type adventurer, so he uses a sword instead.
* ClothingDamage:
** Well, you can't have a good {{catfight}} without it...
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/so_much_for_our_plan Or fire-based powers...]]
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: Nina's MirrorMonster [[PokeThePoodle pantses Chloe]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_done_yet%EF%BC%9F during gym class.]]
* ContrivedCoincidence: [[spoiler:An astral sword? Really?]] Then again, this seals [[TheFool the archetype]].
* ContinuityLockout: While it's possible to dive right into the narrative, newer readers are still advised to start from the beginning if they wanna get the most out of it, since the comic relies on being familiar with past events; which includes two [[{{crossover}} crossovers]] with ''WebComic/MagickChicks'' (see the related entry).
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: You didn't expect "normal" discipline from a cast of monsters, did you?
** Coach Sprynter [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/on_yer_marks[=...=] chained Layla's leg to a ship's anchor]], for using her vampiric enhanced speed to dust the competition in the 100m dash.
** Layla got even with [[spoiler: Doompantied]] Chloe, for trying to steal her fiance ''and'' having the gall to make her serve them during their meal. So Layla gave her a post-hypnotic suggestion to [[spoiler: make a pig of herself, in front of Dio]] and made certain she wouldn't remember why she'd done it, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/never_felt_so_close 'til she was alone in the shower.]]
* CorruptTheCutie: Chloe, while under the influence of the Doom Pantis, felt a strong desire to corrupt Nina, but found herself unable to do so.
** While not enough is shown to confirm or disprove it, fan speculation is that the principal might be a creepy Japanese doll.
* {{Crossover}}[=/=][[RequiredSpinOffCrossover Required Spin-Off Crossover]]: There have been several, so far, between ''WebComic/MagickChicks'' and ''Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad''.
** The first major one involved Layla meeting [[spoiler: [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/pesky_cats_-_ec_crossover_strip Faith]]]] at the park and following her back to her home; thinking she'd get a free bite. Which went about as well [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/like_an_amateur as expected]], [[spoiler: though Tiffany managed to find a way to [[CooldownHug resolve things amicably]]]].
** Chapter 10 culminated in a sparring match between Brooke and [[spoiler: Faith's boyfriend, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/top_of_my_class Ash]]]], which soon turned into an actual fight when he made the mistake of [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/then_do_something_about_it provoking her.]] It might have been his last, had it not been for [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/do_you_feel_him_breathing Melissa snapping Brooke out of it.]]
** There was also a brief crossover revealing Steph's hairpin [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/treasure_it_always_-_guest_strip was a present from Layla]], which has lead fans to wonder whether it's canon on the *C-verse side.
* CrossPoppingVeins: Lampshaded by Layla in the prologue.
* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Several including Brooke, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/are_you_a_herpetologist%EF%BC%9F Chloe]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/tons_of_all_the_way_%28guest_strip%29 Cessily]], and [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/better_you_than_me[=.=] Cerise]].
* DeadlyPrank: Tying someone's shoelaces together is never a good idea; especially if they [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/quality_evil_at_last! happen to be holding a sword.]] [[spoiler: Thankfully, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/secret_compartment it turned out to be harmless]]]].
* DeathbringerTheAdorable: Kujo.
* {{Dhampyr}}: [[ShipperOnDeck Layla believes that with a little work, she can successfully get]] [[spoiler:[[VampireHunter Tiffany]] together with [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Dio]] and that they will produce]] [[HalfHumanHybrid adorable daywalking abominations]].
* DifferentForGirls: Played with, when Ace failed to realize that some things [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/premium_set aren't so different for girls.]]
* DistractedByTheSexy:
** Tiffany noticed that the Nina-ganger [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/let_us_use_bait! had the hots for Kade]], which is how they [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/hunk_of_a_man lured her back into the cursed mirror.]]
** Ace's father griped about Ace having to write that report for vampire history month, until he saw who he was doing his report on. That changed everything.
-->'''Mr. Wolfhart: (snatches Ace's textbook away)''' "Vampires!? Is that what they're teaching you at this school!? How dare they-- Who's this?"
-->'''Ace:''' "Thats the vampire queen I need to do the report on!"
-->'''Mr. Wolfhart:''' "Can Daddy help? ♥"
** Ace and Nina were both distracted by Brooke at different points: with girl-Ace being smitten by the sight of Brooke [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/half-naked_boys wearing his uniform.]] Whereas "Nino" lost his train of thought , when he noticed [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/wayyyyy_nicer! her hips.]] With the implication being, switching genders [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_puppy affects the victim's sexuality.]]
* DoubleStandard: This being a series dealing with teenagers, it's no surprise that some of them wanna have their cake and eat it to:
** Briefly discussed when the Hellrunes caught Kade making out with Cessily, in the janitor's closet. Jacqui overlooked it and said Layla was a harpy for allegedly treating him as an accessory, but Cerise pointed out that [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/(preferably_me) Kade had been cheating on her.]]
** Melissa is guilty of this, herself. She was upset by the idea of [[spoiler: Ash]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_do_not_need_your_favors stringing her along]], but saw nothing wrong with playing the field, so long as ''[[{{hypocrite}} she]]'' [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/a_new_steady_so_soon_after_me was the one doing it.]]
** Nina not only wanted her sister's boyfriend, Kade, she went so far as to [[spoiler: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_borrowed_this steal her body]]]] just so she could go out with him. Two volumes later, their roles seemingly reversed. Three guesses [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/ran_off_with_my_boyfriend how well Nina took it]], even though Layla explained that [[NotWhatItLooksLike it wasn't what it looked like.]]
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: Well, Fully Fed Very Well on the Dark Side -- Cess and Laura after using Ash to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_lucky_at_all fully fill up on power.]]
* DumbBlonde: In Blair's perfect world, ALL women would be that way, since that's how he likes 'em. And, thanks to the Tiresias Orb, he almost made his dream a reality.
* EarAche: See FullNameUltimatum
* EasilyForgiven: {{Subverted}}. Though Nina and the others forgave Chloe for her actions while under the influence of the Doom Panties, the incident[[note]]and the Chloe "zombie" scare, prior to that[[/note]] made her realize that she was a danger to her friends as long as she couldn't properly control her powers. Which made her decide to ask for a transfer [[WebComic/DangerouslyChloe to Tartarus]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/this_is_so_sudden Academy.]]
* EvilHand: The French teacher Arman Purvis suffers one of these. It seems to be the arm of an evil [[spoiler:hairdresser]].
* EvilLaugh: The mirror monster laughs when pranking. It's a very unthreatening example.
* EvilTwin: In the "See No Evil" chapter, Nina was pulled into a cursed mirror and replaced by a doppelganger, with [[ScrewySquirrel an odd sense "evil."]]
* {{Expy}}: Tiffany Winters > [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy Summers?]]
* FaceHeelTurn: The Doompanties fed on Chloe's feelings of inadequacy and her desire for Layla's fiance, Dio. Which drew out her darker side and greatly enhanced her powers as a succubus.
* FacePalm: These happen frequently enough to make [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Sokka]] proud.
** Melissa wound up doing one, when Jacqui's so-called "protective spell" [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/glamour_spell did diddly squat to protect them.]]
** Nina's obsession with Kade was enough to make [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/attention_to_grammar! Ace head-desk]], since she wouldn't shut up about it.
** Layla's was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/supportive_mother out of exasperation]], because her mom kept insisting she was a lesbian, despite Layla repeatedly telling her [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boys that'd been a misunderstanding.]]
** And Chloe had [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/football_field a similar reaction]] after "converting" Laura and Cessily to her side and realizing [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain they weren't gonna be much help.]]
* FailedDramaticExit: Melissa slaps [[spoiler: Ash]] for thinking she'd consent to a casual fling, then attempts to storm out and slam the door behind her, for emphasis. Which she did... [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_do_not_need_your_favors except she had walked into his closet.]]
-->'''Melissa:''' That was your closet. But I'm still mad!
* {{Fanservice}}: The comic may be PG-13, but still offers low-key servings of eyecandy.
** The Hellrunes were featured in the comic's first ShowerScene, which used a combination of steam and [[ModestyTowel bath towels]] to preserve their modesty.
** Tiffany's shower scene used [[CensorSuds conveniently placed suds]] and a bath towel to preserve ''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/ewwwww[=!!!=] her modesty]]'', as well.
** There was also the time Brooke inadvertently got more than an eyeful, after forgetting she was in [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/dude[=...=] the guys' shower room.]]
** Brooke and Layla provided [[GirlOnGirlIsHot fanservice for male readers]], with [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/drive_the_boys_wild a make out session, here]], and this [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_spoils_of_war! glmpse of Brooke's backside.]]
** Ash [[WalkingShirtlessScene is shirtless]] roughly half the time and sports [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/outstanding_job a toned physique.]]
** Professor Twiggit had [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/carefully_hidden girl-Kade pose in a string-bikini]] to act as bait in order to lure Blair out of hiding. Needless to say, it worked.
** Layla displayed [[AbsoluteCleavage absolute cleavage]], her SexyBack, and [[ShowSomeLeg showed some leg]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/no_you_hang_up while getting ready for a bath.]]
* FanservicePack: A male example. When [[ButtMonkey Ace]] [[spoiler:finally gets transformed back into a boy,]] he's taller and more filled out than he used to be, (and no furry hands to boot!). Apparently the changes (due to puberty) that occurred when Ace was [[spoiler:female]] stuck.
* FantasyKitchenSink: Name your monster type and there's bound to be at least one, or two, of them represented; including their teachers. There's also cursed and magical artifacts, which lend themselves to all sorts of strangeness; both [[RuleOfDrama for drama]] and [[PlayedForLaughs especially comedy.]]
* FelonyMisdemeanor: When the evil spirit of the mirror steals Nina's body to unleash her evil on the world. However, seeing as it's ''[[GenkiGirl Nina]]'' she's in, all she can manage are lame practical jokes.
-->'''Mirror Spirit:''' Hm. My wickedness seems a tad less abominable than once it was.
* FirstLawOfGenderBending: Because he (or she) was out of range of the orb when it reverted those affected by it, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/what_was_that%EF%BC%9F Ace is still a girl, even after The Orb of Tiresias changed everyone else back]]. Lasted about a year, real time, until it got transferred to Kade. [[spoiler:And now after the whole Doom Panties incident Kade is back to normal, averting the trope.]]
* FirstPetStory: Brooke and Skittles.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Nina
** TheLancer: Layla
** TheBigGuy: Ace
** TheSmartGuy: Brooke
** TheChick: Chloe
* FluffyTheTerrible: Queen Lamia's cat, Mr. Boodles, may have seemed cute and innocent, but he [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/most_cross_indeed! decapitated King Lupus]], with a single claw swipe.
* FogFeet: Used for Coach Sprynter and Tiff's astral projection form.
* ForTheEvulz: This was seemingly the mirror monster's primary motivation, but since it wound up being influenced by aspects of Nina's personality, it was more like a ScrewySquirrel.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble:
** '''Sanguine (blood):''' [[{{Irony}} Nina]]
** '''Choleric (yellow bile):''' Layla
** '''Melancholic (black bile):''' Chloe
** '''Phlegmatic (phlegm):''' Brooke
* FreakyFridayFlip: Done in Chapter 4 - "Sisterly Love", when Nina took the ancient vase from Prof. Twiggit so she could [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/extra_honey steal her sister, Layla's, body.]]
* FriendlyEnemy: In the sense that Tiffany's a would-be vampire slayer, who's out to get Layla. Except she never seems able to go through with it, because she's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/limited-edition easily distracted]], and because of [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_will_fix_this! how well they get along]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/final_showdown with each other.]] They've even become best friends, though Tiffany still intends to stake her. Maybe. It's complicated.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: Mainly applies to Nina, who prefers to eat chocolate, rather than drink blood. But the rest of her family also qualifies since none of their human victims [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/now_come_kujo! are ever seriously harmed.]]
* FullNameUltimatum: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/no_buts Layla Alucardia Delacroix!]]
* FundraiserCarnival: The setting for the ''Kissing Booth'' bonus story in the print edition.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: There have been others, but [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/smash_it! panel 1 here]] takes the cake.
* FurAgainstFang: Although there does seem to be some "bad blood" between vampires and werewolves in-universe, Nina doesn't seem to care about it, nor her family: Layla is equally rude to everyone, Maria is equally flirty with everyone. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/let_us_go_for_a_stroll! Mr.Wolfhart]] remembers, but he's more grumpy than serious about it. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/since_ancient_times Nina has an unique theory about the feud.]]
* GagPenis: Blair imagined Chloe with one, when she asked him to use the Tiresias Orb to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boobs_go_away! male her boobs go away.]] The thought was so repulsive to him, that it inadvertently reveresed to the effect on the entire school, returning everyone to normal -- except Ace.
* GenderBender: Takes place in chapter 9, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_wrong_hands once Blair got his hands on the orb.]]
* GenreBlindness: For being a Slayer, Tiffany has little idea of how one becomes a vampire. Or what she does in general (like [[spoiler:what sort of a sword she grabbed]]).
* GenreSavvy: Though [[WrongGenreSavvy not in the way that could help]].
-->[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/chapter_2_-_store-bought Tiffany]]: '''Vengeance shall be mine'''! Wait... Not "vengeance"... What's the one heroes get? Oh right. '''[[ForGreatJustice Justice shall be done!]]'''
* GhostPirate: Jim Beard Sprynter, the gym coach.
* GilliganCut: As with most tropes, the comic's used this for both drama and comedy:
** Brooke began to panic, once Blair made her realize she was being effected by the Tiresias Orb. She tried to fight it off, but in the very next panel, she had become [[DumbBlonde one of the masses.]]
-->'''Brooke: (panicking)''' "No! My hair! I won't change! I won't change! I won't--"
-->'''*very next panel, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/best_day_ever!_(revised) cue]] [[{{Retcon}} cheerleading]]*'''
** Also done at the end of Layla'a discussion with her mother, about finding a suitable girl for Dio. Layla assured her that she knew [[BlueBlood blue bloods]] among [[BlatantLies her legions of admirers.]] The very next panel was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/legions_of_admirers a shot of Tiffany eating cereal.]]
-->'''Tiffany: (watching television)''' "Oh c'mon, [[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats}} Lion-O]], she doesn't love you! Get over it!"
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: Covered in the LesYay entry on [[YMMV/EerieCuties the YMMV page.]]
* GirlPosse: Melissa's coven, Jacqui and Cerise.
* GirlsHaveCooties: {{Inverted}} -- Nina first met Ace while he was in wolf form and glomped him. But, when he changed back into a boy, she slapped him for giving her cooties.
* TheGlomp: As noted in the previous entry, this was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/hello_self-esteem! how Nina first met Ace.]] She glomped him again, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/puppy_puppy_puppy when he finally changed back into a boy]], at the end of Vol.1.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Accentuated Nina's SlasherSmile nicely, though that could have just been Ace's imagination going wild.
* GoGoEnslavement: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/any_last_words%EF%BC%9F_%28guest_strip%29 One of the guest strips]] (by [[SchoolBites Holly G]]) features a couple slave girls dressed in [[Franchise/StarWars Leia-style]] metal bikinis, much to [[AllMenArePerverts Blair's delight]].
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_done_yet%EF%BC%9F Chloe]]
* GrandTheftMe: [[spoiler:Nina switches her body with Layla's in order to get, a) Layla's boobs, and b) Kade.]]
* GRatedDrug:
** Succubus blood is this to vampires.
** When Nina switches bodies with Layla, in order to make sure that Layla will remain unconscious throughout and not realize what Nina had done, she first consumes the most powerful sedative she can imagine:
--->'''Nina:''' I drank warm milk with ''extra'' honey. She'll be out for ''hours''!
* GuyOnGuyIsHot: This is Tiffany and later Brooke's reaction on seeing [[spoiler:Dio and Ash kissing after being enspelled by Melissa's MagicWand]].
* HandOrObjectUnderwear: Needed if your temper tantrum involves [[BurningWithAnger bursting into flames]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/so_much_for_our_plan and your outfit isn't fireproof.]]
* HardDrinkingPartyGirl:
** Chloe. Turns out that getting drunk causes her to shift from {{Moe}} into full on HornyDevil mode -- [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_inhibitions_just_melted her eyes fix themselves, she takes on a more seductive stance, and she immediately starts seducing the nearest available people.]]
** Nina [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/first_swig! drinks hard]] when called a big girl and told it has chocolate inside. Brooke is a semi-example, considering how much she wanted the bottle once she saw the brand.
* HehHehYouSaidX: When Brooke and Chloe talk about Diodore:
-->'''Brooke:''' I saw you checking out his butt!\\
'''Nina:''' Hee hee! You said "butt"!
* HiddenDepths:
** Brooke's issues with sexuality and Layla's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_see_chloe_changing capacity]] to be understanding. To ''Brooke'' of all people!
** There suddenly seems to be [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/best_friend a lot more to Blair, Nina, or (probably) both.]]
** If Layla stuck like this indefinitely, he'd really ''need'' that thing. She can be mean and devious when she ''doesn't'' have such a good reason.
* HornedHumanoid: Chloe's horns used to be small and were originally made to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/yowzers! look like part of her hairband]], but wearing [[AmplifierArtifact the Doom Panties]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/full_potential caused them to grow.]] Once the panties were removed and sealed away again, her horns [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/this_is_so_sudden briefly returned to heir original size]], though the transfer to Tartarus and the difference in the passage of time there has caused them to grow naturally to their full size (seen in ''WebComic/DangerouslyChloe'').
* HornyDevils: In the form of an insecure, freckled, {{moe}} {{meganekko}} teenage succubus and her mother, whose appearance explained why Chloe felt so insecure (she's over it [[WebComic/DangerouslyChloe these days]]).
* HotForStudent: It's no secret that Mr. Purvis has [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/chaperones got it bad for Layla.]] In fact, Chloe used it to her advantage, by disguising herself as Layla to get Purvis [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/whatever_you_say_layla to bend the rules for her.]]
* HumanShield: Cerise pushes Melissa into the gender-changing beam, to prevent it from hitting her.
-->'''Cerise:''' Sorry! Panicked! (''thought ballon'') Better you than me.
* IdeaBulb: Laura's flickers for a moment before coming on.
* IdiotBall:
** Tiffany whenever she drops the SmartBall. For example, [[spoiler:forgetting vampires and sun don't mix]] right after helping solve the [[spoiler:EvilTwin]] issue. She blames it on blood loss.
** [[spoiler:The Orb of Tiresias becomes a ''literal'' IdiotBall when Blair uses it to turn everybody into empty-headed bimbos.]]
* IKissYourHand: Diodore does it for Layla.
* ImagineSpot: The series is fond of these, which are almost always comical:
** Such as [[SillyReasonForWar how Nina believed]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/since_ancient_times the feud between werewolves and vampires originally began]], which Ace said was unlikely.
** Tiffany has several of her own. In fact, it's a habit for her:
*** Like the one she had one about having to confront her parents, when she thought she was a vampire. First, she pictured them disowning her, then she [[KilledMidsentence pictured her dad staking]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/it_is_in_the_name! her in midsentence!]]
*** Or the time she [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/final_showdown imagined having it out with Layla]], before the Valcross concert.
*** And the time she imagined Layla conspiring with Dio to kill her on their double date, then pictured [[spoiler: [[WebComic/MagickChicks Faith]]]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/curse_you_hormones saving her and mentally enslaving her afterwards.]] Which convinced her to call Melissa instead.
** Melissa [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/all_the_right_people imagined the other girl's reactions]] to finding out she was going on a date with Kade; including [[spoiler: Faith]], [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall who said she didn't care.]]
** And Layla imagined Cess and Laura making fun of her, after finding out she was friends with a human. During which, Melissa made [[TheCameo a cameo appearance]] so she could laugh at her too.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty: Maria told Layla she was nearing the point where her aging process would begin slowing down significantly; citing that Kade would likely be in his 40's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/legions_of_admirers by the time Layla physically resembled "19".]]
* ImNotPretty: When introduced, Chloe considered herself okay by normal standards, but not pretty enough by [[HornyDevil succubus]] standards. Even after her [[BreastExpansion growth spurt]], she called herself "quite plain", despite having a legion of admirers.
* ImprobablyFemaleCast: The cast is predominantly female, with only two regularly recurring male characters (Ace and Blair). The other two --Kade and Dio-- are closer to being support characters, since they don't appear as often. While Layla's father, Eugene, has only shown up all of three times in the comic's run, so far.
* {{Inherently Funny Word|s}}: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/since_ancient_times "Begonias"]] according to [[WordOfGod DaveZero]].
* InnocentInaccurate: Nina's naivete is one of her defining character traits and is the reason she fails to grasp the meaning of certain things she sees and hears about.
** Like how she thought the feud between vampires and werewolves must've begun over an incident were one of Ace's kind [[SillyReasonForWar dug up some vampire's begonias.]]
** Or how she didn't understand [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen how horrific Queen Lamia's crimes against humanity were.]] So when she gave her (and Ace's) report on her, she made it sound as if Lamia was beautiful and kind, based on her interpretation of her. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_villagers_were_sad[=...=] You can guess what their grade was.]]
* InnocentInnuendo:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_want_a_kiss%EF%BC%9F Nina is too innocent for her own good.]]
--->'''Nina:''' D'you kiss the snake too?
** Also:
--->'''Nina:''' [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_am_all_alone My sister's busy with her kitty...]]
* InstantHumiliationJustAddYouTube: Layla [[{{foreshadowing}} said she was worried]] about ending up on Blair's Website/YouTube channel, after he was caught spying on her and Brooke at Nina's slumber party. The following day at school, Nina saw them kissing and [[MistakenForGay jumped to the conclusion]] that her sister was a lesbian. Then held a rally in front of the entire school, with help from Cess and Laura. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/youtube Guess who was there to uploaded the event to his channel?]]
* InstantWakingSkills: Brooke demonstrates these when Layla tries to drink from her (though it's possible that she faked sleep).
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Tiffany coaches Melissa through her first public appearance as a CuteWitch [[spoiler: MagicalGirl]], by feeding her [[ForGreatJustice heroic lines.]] Melissa goes along with it [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_am_not_saying_that VERY reluctantly.]]
-->'''Melissa:''' "Stop in... um..."
-->'''Tiffany:''' (''whispering'') "Psst psst psst!"
-->'''Melissa: (indignant)''' [[BeingGoodSucks "I am NOT saying that!"]]
-->'''Tiffany: (whispering)''' "Secret ID!"
-->'''Melissa:''' "Ugh! Fine!"
-->'''Melissa: (mortified)''' "In the name of peace and justice, I, a passing-by magical girl who likes Chinese food, demand you cease and desist!''
* IsThereADoctorInTheHouse: When Chloe thinks she's attacked by a snake, Nina shouts: "Is there a herpetologist in the house?"
* ItMakesSenseInContext: There is no way to adequately describe what the series is about, to someone who hasn't read it. At least, not in a way they'd understand. You'd do better just to give 'em a link to it and let 'em see for themselves.
* KissingUnderTheInfluence: What Mellissa's wand does to [[spoiler:[[HoYay Ash and Diodore]]]].
* KissOfDistraction: Melissa does it with Ash, to prevent him from attacking Tiff's date.
* KissOfTheVampire: Layla's bite has been shown to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/this_is_not_so_bad sexually arouse]] her "victims".
** Brooke even noted that Layla's bite was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/drive_the_boys_wild better than her mother's.]]
** Tiffany not only enjoyed her experience, she was apparently [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/staking_customers hoping for another one.]] But [[ArentYouGoingToRavishMe was disappointed]] to find Layla only needed help with her dress.
** Taken to all new levels after Layla regains her memories as [[spoiler: Queen Quintessa]]. When Brooke offered to let Layla feed on her again, Layla [[spoiler: refused unless she begged for it. Brooke wanted it so badly, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/a_close_circle that she submitted]]]]. Though it may be a sign of enthrallment.
* KillerRabbit:
** Mr. Boodles in general.
** Kujo (a Bichon Frise), to Blair.
* KryptoniteIsEverywhere: When Tiffany [[spoiler:thinks she]] became a vampire, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cross-shaped_mirror she stumbles on holy water and mirrors under the sun]].
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Done by [[spoiler: [[WebComic/MagickChicks Faith]]]], during [[TheCameo a cameo appearance]], and Melissa after transferring to Artemis Academy.
** First seen when Melissa [[ImagineSpot imagined the other girls' reactions]] to finding out about her date with Kade. Each expressed some degree of jealousy or disappointment, except [[spoiler: Faith]], [[FunnyMoments who could give two shits.]]
-->'''Cerise: (unfazed)''' "Hmph! Don't let it go to your head."
-->'''Jacqui: (wistful)''' "Oh, Kade... someday you'll remember me..."
-->'''Layla: (deadpan)''' "I'll murder you."
-->[[spoiler: Faith]]: '''(smug)''' "I know you're only imagining ''my'' reaction, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/all_the_right_people but I don't know who Kade is, or why I should care."]]
** Also seen when Layla thought about what the kids at school would say if they found out she was friends with a human. Melissa popped in to give her two cents:
-->'''Cessily: (laughing and pointing)''' "Look! Layla's so hard up for friends, she has to hang out with humans!"
-->'''Laura: (laughing)''' "She's not popular AT ALL!!"
-->'''Melissa: (laughing)''' "AHA-HAHA! I don't know ''why'' I'm here, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/stake_me_with_a_jackhammer but this is hilarious!"]]
* LapPillow: Gender-swapped Ace holds Kade's head [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/what_was_that%EF%BC%9F in her lap]] after Layla knocked him out. [[spoiler:Though Kade's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/s-o-o-o-o_soffffft! other eye]] is opened when we see it...]]
* LastSecondWordSwap:
-->'''Cess:''' Wouldn't it be neat if we became the school's new alpha females?\\
'''Chloe:''' Whatever for?\\
'''Laura:''' Well, someone has to!\\
'''Cess:''' And you don't want it to be somone stuck-up like Lay-- (''Layla appears behind them'')\\
'''Cess and Laura:''' Laah-la-la-la! We're singing a merry tune!
* LizardFolk: The twin bullies, Lax and Jux.
* LookBehindYou: Tiffany managed to divert everyone's attention, during her double date with Layla and her [[spoiler: ex-]]boyfriend, simply by pointing. And it actually worked, allowing her to slip garlic powder into Kade's soup, unnoticed:
-->'''Tiffany: (pointing)''' "Look! Something distracting!"
-->'''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/tip_the_odds_in_my_favor (eveybody looks to see what she's pointing at)]]'''
* LoveAtFirstPunch: Ash takes a liking to Melissa, after she [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_do_not_need_your_favors slaps him one]], for thinking she'd consent to a casual fling. And he had a similar reaction when [[spoiler: Brooke]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/top_of_my_class managed to best him in a sparring match.]]
* LoveIsInTheAir: When Chloe's pheromones [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/gesundheit! flooded the entire school]], it caused all the boys effected by it to instantly become infatuated with her, to the point of becoming [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/it_is_making_blair_cry! Chloe-obsessed "zombies".]] Though it also caused them to go after any girls that were covered by it too.
* LoveLetterLunacy: Ace delivers a note to Kade from Nina. Naturally, Kade thinks it's from him.
* LukeNounVerber: Not systematic, but quite prevalent nonetheless. Kade Whiteclaw, Ace Wolfheart, Laura Morningfire, etc.
* MagicPants:
** Ace, the werewolf, seems to be able to slide out of his clothes, leaving them intact (and him naked afterward). Ace's shirt does rip the [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/thar_she_blows! first]] time we see him transform, but it looks more like he did it himself in a fit of passion.
** Brooke Lynn averts this trope in that she loses her panties, but somehow she retained her footwear when she reverted. Considering that said undies ended up in Blair's plastic fingers, that aversion is probably to provide for the RuleOfFunny. Probably she just slipped her footwear back on quickly and forgot about her panties. Bare feet are a lot more immediately noticeable than bare ... ahem.
* TheMagnificent: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/most_cross_indeed! King Lupus the Wolfhearted]].
* MaliciousSlander: Layla is [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/everything_worked_out in trouble,]] if the previous page is any indication. Subverted: the plan was to make her ''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/what-is-her-name less]]'' popular.
* [[{{Animesque}} Mangaesque]]
* MassiveNumberedSiblings: Maria Delacroix stated that she raised 13 kids. However, we only see Layla and Nina.
* MeaningfulName: Throughout.
** Chloe Love ({{succubus}})
** Ace Wolfhart ([[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]])
** Melissa Hellrune ([[WitchSpecies witch]])
** Layla {{Alucard}}ia Delacroix ([[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]]). Also, Layla means "night," which is appropriate for a vampire. The Delacroix's family name is also meaningful in an ironic way: it translates to "of the cross".
** [[EvilHand Arm]]an Purvis, with the evil Arm.
** Jim [[SeadogBeard Beard]] Sprynter (GhostPirate who coaches track).
** Tiffany Winters acts, looks like, and does the same job as another girl whose last name [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer is a season]].
** Blair, the possessed doll, is very likely named after Linda Blair of ''Film/TheExorcist'' fame.
** All we need now is to discover that Brooke Lynn is from New York and we'll have pretty much all the main cast (though it's possible that her first name is a more subtle than usual pun, given that Melusine are traditionally supposed to be river creatures).
** Miss Futakuchi, the history teacher, based on the Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futakuchi-onna Futakuchi-onna]] myths.
* MindControl:
** Vampire bite apparently allows to hypnotize the victim immediately after; they are mostly reasonable and responsible about it -- the only two exceptions so far happened when Layla answered messed up treatment with nasty pranks and when [[spoiler:Nina in her body]] didn't quite know what she was doing.
** The Orb of Tiresias and the Tacky Wand had such effects, though as generally tweaking minds to some or other end rather than direct ongoing control.
* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/worth_a_shot Ace is still a girl and is not liking it.]] S/he sarcastically suggests to Brooke that maybe they could turn him/her back to a boy if they kiss. They try, it doesn't work, and Ace realizes something rather shocking... [[spoiler:Ace felt absolutely nothing when kissing Brooke, which makes him/her realize that s/he might be gay. Or straight, since Ace is a girl now?]]
** Played with by Professor Twigitt: Ace's new heterosexual attraction to boys? Genetic, apparently. Ace's equally new desire to go shopping for cute clothes? "I've never had those urges. That's just you."
** Both Nina and Layla discovered this thanks to the FreakyFridayFlip Nina caused. Nina had to deal with [[HorrorHunger blood cravings]] while inside Layla's body and Layla found herself wanting chocolate inside of Nina's body.
* MirrorMonster: Nina was pulled into the cursed mirror and was temporarily replaced by [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/real_evil the "Nina-ganger"]], during Chapter 6: "See No Evil".
* MistakenForGay: When Nina returned from finding a cookie in order to thank Brooke for helping her sister, she was stunned to find them [[LesYay making out.]] Since she didn't know about [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_spoils_of_war! their bargain]], she ran off [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_what_you_think! under the assumption that her sister was a lesbian]] and that Brooke was her bi-curious girlfriend.
* ModestyTowel: Used when Nina wrote a message asking for help in the shower room mirror[[note]]while she was trapped in the cursed mirror[[/note]], which sent the Hellrunes [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/rorrim_ni_deppart running down the hall in their birthday suits.]]
* MomentKiller: Just as [[spoiler: Ace]] and Brooke were trying to discuss the problems they were having in their relationship, [[EnfantTerrible Tia]] happens by, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/couples_counselling sowing seeds of discord.]]
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: The Nina-ganger's idea of "evil" amounted to little more than childhood pranks and mischief making. Though it's implied that it was being effected by Nina's psyche, since the Nina-ganger was just as confused by her own behavior.
* MundaneUtility: As seen [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_will_fix_this! here,]] just a perk of vampire friends.
* MyInstinctsAreShowing:
** Kade's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cats_are_great_listeners reaction]] to Ace is an example.
** Brooke invoked it [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/heebie-jeebie_eyes! quite intentionally]].
** Nina as a chocolate-loving vampire has her instincts rather... [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/sho-o-o_shorry! haywire]].
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/...hypnotic! Brooke and Skittles.]] Perhaps that mouse was trying to avoid those instincts.
** Tiffany has trained her pet mouse Crackers to help her hunt vampires, and sics him (with a crucifix on his back) on Kade. Except Kade isn't a vampire, he's a werecat, something Crackers instantly realizes. He tries to hide in Tiffany's cleavage. Which triggers Kade's hunting instincts, so he [[NotWhatItLooksLike reaches down her shirt to grab the mouse]].
** Adora, as a succubus, upon her release [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/hey_handsome was distracted by the first lad in the field of vision]] before focusing on more important matters [[spoiler:such as her daughter has gone a little crazy and trapped her in a piece of jewelry]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Melissa Hellrune -- although she's mostly an AlphaBitch with her eye on social advancement than anything else. Even so, [[spoiler:the Orb was something she brought and had the potential to end all life on Earth]], and she's only a ''student'' witch!
* NerdGlasses: Arman Purvis
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/supportive_mother Eugene Delacroix]], Layla and Nina's dad, has the same name and looks exactly like famous 19th century French painter [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Delacroix Eugène Delacroix]]. According to Nina, they're not the same person, as her father is way older than the painter.
* NoExceptYes: Being dumped by Kade left Layla in tears ''and'' in denial. She [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/slumber_party%EF%BC%9F insisted that she had dumped]] [[YourCheatingHeart *him*]]... he just happened to dump her first.
* TheNoseKnows: Vampires have rather keen senses -- which is why Layla thought to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/stake_me_with_a_jackhammer mask Tiffany's human smell]] before the "double date". Which also makes [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_big_sister the quote]] on her Music/{{Rammstein}} shirt ("You smell so good") very fitting.
* NotSoDifferent:
** Female Ace is [[SecondLawOfGenderBending sorta glad]] that he/she doesn't have to compete with other men about who has the "biggest". This said to flat chested Brooke. The focus may change, but BiggerIsBetter regardless.
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_like_them_too%EF%BC%9F Layla and Tiffany's]] love of [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/final_showdown Valcross.]]
* NotWhatItLooksLike:
** Layla tries to use the excuse (for a non-sexual situation) [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/try_some with limited success]].
** And there was a prefectly non-sexual reason the morning after [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_spoils_of_war! Mama Delacroix caught her nekkid with Layla]], Brooke was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/going_through_a_phase complaining about a bite on her inner thigh]]...
** This is not [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/this_is_not_so_bad the kind of necking that it appears to be.]]
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_what_you_think! Layla and Brooke try this]] when Nina catches them making out. Unfortunately, their excuses are conflicting.
** Kade [[MyInstinctsAreShowing trying to catch the mouse]] who took cover in Tiffany's cleavage.
* NoYouHangUpFirst: Layla does it with Kade. She doesn't even hang up when she steps into the bathtub.
* OddShapedPanel
* OhMyGods: A few times.
** Chloe says "Oh, sweet Lilith..." when she thinks she's being attacked by Seth (Lilith is a succubus-like being in Jewish mythology, although there is at least speculation about connections to earlier Middle Eastern mythology).
** Layla says things like "For Dracula's sake" and "in the [[UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler Impaler's]] name", since she is a vampire and Dracula is the most famous of the vampires.
* OnlyAFleshWound: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/%28chapter_7%29_blood_and_strawberries Here.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: You know something's wrong when [[spoiler:Nina turns down her favorite chocolate.]]
* OpenMindedParent:
** Mr. Wolfhart was completely unfazed by Ace being changed into a girl and even said he had [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/slurp_slurp always wanted a daughter.]]
** Mrs. Delacroix was [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/going_through_phase very understanding]] about the possibility that her daughter, Layla, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/supportive_mother might be a lesbian.]] Though Layla clearly ''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boys was not.]]''
* OrSoIHeard: "[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/stupid_magick_stick uh... I mean... I'd imagine so, anyway...]]"
* OrwellianRetcon: Near the end of Brooke's introduction, a line by [[DirtyOldMan Blair]] about her lost underwear was altered by the writers who felt it pushed the PG-13 border to far.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent:
** They can be born of vampire parents and grow up, they can see themselves in mirrors and Nina was [[WhenThePlanetsAlign born on Easter]], and thus feeds on chocolate. No word yet on how/if they turn people though. [[spoiler:Tiffany thought she was turned from a bite, but this was quickly disproved.]]
** Also, vampires can apparently feed on any living being with blood. Succubus blood tastes ''[[ImpossiblyDeliciousFood truly amazing]]'', and melusine blood, besides being cold or room-temperature, tastes "exotic".
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: And, apparently, can have furry hands until after puberty.
* OutOfClothesExperience: When a would-be vampire hunter stabs herself accidentally, she takes this form as a ghost. Naturally, blue BarbieDollAnatomy is used.
* PieInTheFace: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/plan_b! Nina's doppelganger to Kade.]]
* PlayingPossum: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/what_was_that%EF%BC%9F Kade]] uses a meta-example for more time in (female) Ace's lap.
* PointyEars: Chloe (succubus), Cessily (fairy)...
* PokeThePoodle: The mirror version of Nina can't do much more evil than children's pranks and a pie to Kade's face. And the one time her {{Doppelganger}} ''does'' (accidentally) [[DeadlyPrank succeed in doing something genuinely evil]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she's overwhelmed with remorse seconds later.]]
* PowerGlows: When Blair gets frustrated with the slow transformation rate of the [[GenderBender Orb of Tiresias]], he starts this with the shout of "ARRR! I want more girls NOW!" Accompanied by SuckingInLines and PowerFloats.
-->'''Blair:''' GIRLS! Not DISCO!
* PowerPerversionPotential: The Orb of Tiresias was full of it, and witchcraft in general likely applies.
* PrehensileHair: Miss Futakuchi, the history teacher, based on the Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futakuchi-onna Futakuchi-onna]] myths.
* PunnyName: Special mention goes to Arman Purvis (read the comic and you'll get it), but the best is taken by the vampire family with the French surname meaning "of the Cross"! Not to mention Brooke Lynn.
* PuppyDogEyes:
** Nina; Ace even calls her out for it.
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/beat_up_in_the_shower Ace]], quite appropriately.
** Laura does it twice: on Mr. Purvis to let her keep her Lolita clothes (because she's smaller, her usual uniforms don't fit), and on Nina when she won't willingly return Laura's height.
* PyrrhicVillainy: [[BlondesAreEvil Melissa's]] plan [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/(chapter_9)_big_girls_do_not_cry to break up Layla and Kade]] (by using the Tiresisas Orb) ended in disaster, after Blair got his hands on it and instigated a schoolwide incident. Which ultimately got the Coven [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/magick_chicks_-_holiday_special_-_1_of_2 expelled from Charybdis Heights]] and sent [[WebComic/MagickChicks to Artemis Academy]] as punishment. But as an indirect result of the same incident that got them the boot, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/kiss_boys Kade wound up becoming a girl]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/even_jealouser and asked Melissa out]] on a date[[note]]in hopes of using her to change himself back into a boy[[/note]].
* RebusBubble: Nina's reaction to Ace transforming the first time. Can be seen in MagicPants. And Nina seeing Ace [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/everywhere_i_go here]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Ifrit Laura and snow fairy Cessily seem to be operating in this manner.
* RelationshipRevolvingDoor: Which best describes the comic's two main "couples":
** Layla and Kade never had much of a relationship, since he's a horndog (or tomcat, if you prefer), who [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/(preferably_me) can't go]] five seconds [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/s-o-o-o-o_soffffft! without cheating.]] But she always [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_layla took him back.]] At least, she ''did'', until their last breakup.
** The signs of Ace and Brooke's soon-to-be [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/worth_a_shot on-again]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_help_him! /off-again relationship]] were seen as early as the ''"War Dance"'' arc. Since then, they've dated and [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_want_to_see_other_people broken up]] several times for various reasons. They've even been compared to [[Series/{{Friends}} Ross and Rachel!]]
* ReluctantMonster: Brooke seems to dislike her monster form, and is a vegetarian, despite being carnivorus by nature.
* {{Retcon}}: The last panel of the page posted on the 8th October originally featured the aged up Nina and the blondified Brooke kissing. Due to [[InternetBackdraft complaints on the forums]] the panel was changed two days later.
* {{Revenge}}
* RomanticRain: Romantic sprinklers. Seen when Layla makes up with Kade at the end of the "War Dance" arc. The two share a kiss, causing Laura's body temperature to ignite with jealousy, which set off the school's sprinkler system. Everyone else runs for cover, Layla and Kade continue unabated.
* SacredFirstKiss: Nina was temporarily sad about it.
* SayItWithHearts:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/what_a_haul!!! My lovelies!]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/it_is..._puberty "I LOVE YOU"]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/zzzzz "Is it day yet?"]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_think_it_is_cute "I'll come with you!"]] Y'know what, Nina and Blair. That should suffice. Also, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_inhibitions_just_melted drunk Chloe.]]
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/sweetest_blood Maria]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/no_buts sometimes]].
** Often, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_sexy_chart conscious]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/this_is_not_so_bad bite victims]] seem to [[KissOfTheVampire enjoy the process]], or [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/staking_customers even thinking of it]].
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/teeny-weeny_favor Layla]], when trying to "convince" Kade.
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_layla TWO hearts AND a heart speech-bubble sound-effect, coming right up!]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/why_are_you_crying_brooke So sweet, Layla.]]
** Ash, [[LoveAtFirstPunch upon being]] slap-ZAP!-ped [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_do_not_need_your_favors by Melissa]].
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Done by Brooke, when she [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/extra_womanly "yoinked!"]] the pads out of Layla's bra, during Nina's slumber party.
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Nina in [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/kitty one strip]], even though she isn't wearing glasses.
* SchoolgirlLesbians:
** Mrs. Delcroix implied and later [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/going_through_a_phase said pretty directly]] that she and Chloe's mom were this.
** ... And now she assumes [[NotWhatItLooksLike that Brooke and Layla are now too.]] Nina [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_what_you_think! would agree]].
* SealedEvilInACan: The Doom Panties which Chloe's mother said were meant to be for her but her body isn't ready for them yet. Putting then on without being able to handle this made Chloe [[DrunkOnTheDarkSide a tad evil.]]
* SealedEvilInATeddyBear: Blair. Once, he actually disguises himself as a teddy bear.
* SecretRelationship: [[spoiler:Ace and Brooke start dating after he gets de-gender bent]]. They're keeping it secret, probably because [[spoiler:Nina is a ClingyJealousGirl]].
* SecondLawOfGenderBending: There have been a few scenes to suggest that, while still interested in becoming a boy again, Ace may have enjoyed being a girl more that she let on. See DistractedByMyOwnSexy above and NotSoDifferent above.
* SecurityCling: [[LovableCoward Jacqui]], to Melissa, when the trio [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/magick_chicks_-_holiday_special_-_2_of_2 were informed]] about their transfer, with EvilLaugh.
* SelectiveObliviousness: Melissa and Jacqui's reactions to Layla being ''justifiably'' annoyed with Kade. Noticed by Cerise in DoubleStandard.
* SharedUniverse: With ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'', ''Webcomic/DangerouslyChloe'', and ''Webcomic/ParanormalMysterySquad''.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Layla wasn't ugly to begin with, but when Chloe gets done doing a ''very brief'' makeover... wow.
* ShipperOnDeck: Look like the other students are quite supportive of the idea of [[spoiler:Layla and Brooke.]] ...At least the other girls are.
* ShirtlessScene: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/and_i_am_shirtless_because%EF%BC%9F They]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/bulging_pecs[=...=] happen]].
* ShoutOut:
** The Delacroix's dog is called Kujo, a reference to Creator/StephenKing's ''Literature/{{Cujo}}''.
** The gender-changing orb is called the "Orb of Tiresias". Tiresias is a famous seer from [[ClassicalMythology Greek mythology]], who among some other misadventures once was transformed into a woman for seven years.
** The words in Jacqui's spell "[[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Nee_Alavar Alavar]] [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darsana Darsana]] [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Finis_Valorum Valorum]]" are the names of minor ''Franchise/StarWars'' characters.
** The appearances of the witches could be a shoutout to the three girls from ''Film/TheCraft''.
** And the three witches could be a shoutout to the famous witches in ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''.
** Blair's head spinning around in his first appearance is probably a shoutout to Linda Blair's famous scene of the same sort in ''Film/TheExorcist''.
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_am_just_watching Jeffrey the school janitor]] wears a hockey mask like [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]] (but he's a lot nicer than Jason).
** Layla [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/vampire_puberty adressed]] Chloe and Brooke as [[Franchise/GIJoe Baroness and Serpentor]].
** Layla's middle name is Alucardia, a feminine form of {{Alucard}}, which is {{Dracula}} backwards (used several times in vampire fiction as an alias for vampires).
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/notthecrazylittlegirl Student names]] in Miss Futakuchi's class: [[Creator/LonChaney Chaney]], [[Creator/BorisKarloff Karloff]], [[Creator/CliveBarker Barker]] and [[Creator/StephenKing King]].
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_beauteous_layla_delacroix In this page]], We are introuduced to Layla's childhood friend, Diodore Renoir, who asks her to call him Dio. Hmmm... A vampire called Dio? [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure Where have we seen this before?]] That could just be a coincidence, util [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/pesky_cats a strip]] where we find out that her dog Kujo's nickname is "Jojo".
** There is also the part where [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/it_just_got_wronger Nina says Ebil]] which is a word used by [[Creator/ArtixEntertainment Zorbak]]
** Professor Wilhelmina Twigitt may have something to do with Ms.Frizzle from ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus''.
** The [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/chant_it_like_you_mean_it chant to summon Tia]] is straight out of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'', where it's used to summon a space taxi.
** [[Literature/ThievesWorld Kade-kitty]]?
** Blair running around with a pair of stolen undies crying [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/?module=articles&func=display&ptid=17 "What a haul!"]] is a reference to the English dub of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf''. The waiter and waitress from the café somewhere in volume 2 look like copies from Ranma in both his male and female form.
** Maria Delacroix sings [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid "Poor Unfortunate Souls"]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/it_builds_anticipation in the shower]].
** Just like [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Haley]] [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0382.html Starshine]], it seems that a small part of Layla's mind/personality is her [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_hate_every_other_part_of_layla "hidden bisexual"]] part.
* ShowerScene: Several, and catering to the EstrogenBrigade as well as the typical {{fanservice}}. Though it is [[CensorSteam PG-13 level]].
* ShowWithinAShow: Recently it was revealed that ''Eerie Cuties'' (and likely ''Webcomic/MagickChicks'' as well) exist as a comic (and possibly other mediums) within the ''Webcomic/MenageA3'' universe.
* ShrinkingViolet: Chloe, especially early on; Brooke, due to sexual identity issues.
* SkunkStripe:
** Mrs. Delacroix has it.
** Tia's hair is modeled after the fur of an actual skunk.
* SlapSlapKiss: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_layla Kade seems to like]] when Layla shows claws.
* SlasherSmile: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/kitty Nina,]] of all people.
* SlipperySwimsuit: A wave knocks off Layla's bikini top.
* SlumberParty: Nina invites Chloe and Brooke to one.
* SmallReferencePools: Surprisingly averted, in terms of monsters and mythology. We have your standard vampires, werewolves, succubi, etc, but then we have more obscure creatures, like the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melusine melusine]] and the just plain creepy [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futakuchi-onna Futakuchi-onna]].
* SnakePeople: Brooke is a Melusine.
* SneezeOfDoom: Chloe unleashes one. HilarityEnsues.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: Kade's cat ears [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/speak_for_yourself pop out when he sees Layla topless.]]
* SpannerInTheWorks: Blair, twice. His stealing the Orb Of Tiresias turns "Operation: Break Up" into a full-fledged fiasco, and he foils Chloe when Layla tells him the Doompanties are the rarest panties in the universe.
* SpitTake:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/stay_in_the_game! Brooke first.]]
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_said_butt Then, Nina's turn.]]
* {{Squee}}: Tiffany squeals a lot when seeing Melissa's MagicalGirl transformation.
* SquirrelsInMyPants:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/are_you_a_herpetologist%EF%BC%9F Brooke's pet snake Seth once slipped in Chloe's clothes]] after she startled him. He then came out of [[GagBoobs her cleavage]], surrounded by {{Heart Symbol}}s.
** Tiffany has a tamed mouse, Crackers, which she trained to distract vampires. Except when she tries to sic it on Kade, a werecat, the mouse instead hide in her cleavage. And then Kade retrieve it... [[NotWhatItLooksLike with his mouth]].
* SssssnakeTalk: Brooke in her monster form. Or when just about to transform.
* TheStarscream: [[http://www.magickchicks.com/d/20110211.html Suddenly]], [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/mc_-_preliminary_sketches Cerise pushing Melissa]] into a [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/better_you_than_me[=.=] blast from the Orb of Tiresias]] makes a bit more sense.
* StereoFibbing: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/not_what_you_think! Layla and Brooke]] trying to explain to Nina why they were kissing.
* StylisticSuck: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/the_villagers_were_sad[=...=] Nina's history essay.]]
* SugarAndIcePersonality:
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_like_to_think_so Brooke]]
** Possibly, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/final_showdown Layla.]] Which could explain why Brooke has ended up confiding in her first. Maybe.
* SweetTooth: Nina, of whose food we know only of chocolate and [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/been_there_all_night pancakes]] (with jam?).
* TakingTheBullet: Nina does it for Ace when Blair tries to use the gender-changing orb on him. [[SenselessSacrifice And then Blair still manages to hit Ace when he's not looking.]]
* TalkLikeAPirate: Jim Beard Sprynter, the GhostPirate gym coach.
* TearsOfBlood: Nina says that "virgins shed tears of blood" during the rule of the vampire queen.
* [[TeensAreMonsters Teens Are]] [[HumansAreFlawed Flawed]]: Pretty much the entire cast shows flaws all around (since the story exploits them for RuleOfFunny), some more than others.
* TemporarilyAVillain: Chloe underwent a period of villainy when she donned the [[AmplifierArtifact Doom Panties]] prematurely. This caused her crush on [[spoiler:Layla's fiancé, Dio]], along with her feelings of inadequacy, to draw out her SuperpoweredEvilSide. Thankfully, [[HeartwarmingMoments she got better]] and is back to [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/been_there_all_night her lovable self.]]
* TemptingFate: When [[spoiler:Girl!Ace]] is made to take a shower, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/hot_shower she thinks that]] "at least in here, no one will see my "[[GenderBender little secret]]". Cue [[AllMenArePerverts Blair]].
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Eyelashes.
* TestosteronePoisoning: Ash, in his Crossover Cameo from ''Webcomic/MagickChicks''. [[spoiler:After the girls "feed" off of his energy, though, he only managed to just get off "needing half a dozen Angus Burgers" instead of dying.]]
* ThemeNaming: The vampire families introduced in the comic are named after two famous [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eug%C3%A8ne_Delacroix French]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auguste_Renoir painters]].
* ThirdLawOfGenderBending: Played completely straight by Nina, Ace [[spoiler:and Kade]] post gender-swap. After all, it was not just "turn into girls" but ''bimbofication'' curse to begin with.
-->"I don't ''wanna'' be a girl! I liked being a boy!... '''''And my clothes don't fiiiiiiiiit!'''''"
* ThirdPersonPerson: Tiffany, when she is in "slayer" mode.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck:
** Brooke ''almost'' [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/normal_party_stuff saved]] Ace.
** And then that is {{subverted}} when ''Layla'' got the makeover. [[spoiler:Followed by [[DoubleSubversion Ace getting a makeover anyway]].]]
* ThrowTheDogABone:
** [[spoiler: Girl!]]Ace and Brooke's burgeoning friendship and sweet chemistry together have shades of this. Once Ace [[spoiler: becomes a boy again,]] he decides [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/puppy_puppy_puppy act on it.]]
** Ace gets another from ''Melissa Hellrune'', of all people, when she cons him into taking her out on a date. Despite the fact she manipulated Ace into it, Melissa gets a few DefrostingIceQueen moments when she realizes she enjoys his company... till [[ClingyMacguffin The Wand]] pulls her away.
* TimeSkip: A minor one of 4 months seems to have occurred as of the start of Chapter 14, if characters' comments are anything to go by.
* TooMuchInformation:
** Chloe, Layla and Brooke feel that way about Mrs. Delacroix revealing her history with Chloe's mother. Brooke even covers Nina's ears.
** [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/What%20is%20it%20succu-bun Later]], Adora herself, mentioning [[NoodleImplements extra possibilities]] for "fun grown-up games". Did we ever see such round eyes on Chloe?
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Chocolate to Nina. It's all she eats.
* TransformationComic: It may not be the point of the comic, but transformation pops up a '''lot''' in ''Eerie Cuties'' and its spinoffs. Pretty much every type on the list has been prominently featured.
* TroubledFetalPosition: [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/everywhere_i_go Ace, after spotting Nina once too many.]]
* UnwantedHarem: Layla ends up going to the dance with a bunch of girls.
* UnsoundEffect: In the last panel of page 436 with Layla and Blair. "BOOT"
* ValleyGirl: The orb, bonded with Blair's mind, turns everyone into {{Valley Girl}}s. [[AllGuysWantCheerleaders Blonde]], [[GirlOnGirlIsHot make-out fighting]] [[ValleyGirl valley girls]] with [[MsFanservice commonly open shirts]] and [[BreastExpansion new assets]] that [[FetishFuel obey Blair's]] [[PowerPerversionPotential every wish]]. And, when [[OlderThanTheyLook Nina]] joins them, she grew.
* VanHelsingHateCrimes: Tiffany wants to slay the vampires and other monsters in the school, because she doesn't know that they're harmless. Except for [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/chapter_2_-_store-bought this one]].
* VegetarianVampire: Nina. She eats chocolate and sucks the syrup out of chocolate-covered cherries.
* VeinOVision: After Layla bit Chloe, she started seeing her [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/blood_is_the_life this way]]. Though, Layla was starving at the time.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Tiffany keeps her mask in her cleavage.
* VillainousCrush: Nina's EvilTwin has one on Kade.
* VisibleSilence: Layla, Brooke, and Chloe's reaction to Mrs. Delacroix [[{{Squick}} describing her "phase" to the girls]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: If Brooke and Layla can be considered friends, this is probably the sort.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The characters with a monster form seem to be able to use traits of the form without fully transforming. Adult succubi have the rare age-shifting power, and can change their age to whatever they think they need to be.
-->'''Adora:''' You can be a 40-year old MILF, an adorable 9-year old, or a 25-year old grad student with perky C-cups.
* VomitDiscretionShot: When Nina throws up after drinking for the first time.
* WardrobeMalfunction: Deliberately invoked by Chloe as a bait for Blair.
* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: Layla says this about Dio dating Tiffany, but she's [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/stake_me_with_a_jackhammer just trying to convince herself]] (and failing).
* WhenThePlanetsAlign: Nina's parents told her the reason she eats chocolate, rather than drink blood like normal vampires, is because she was born on Easter Sunday. Though after having [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/try_on_these_panties her first taste of blood]], while in her sister's body, she began to question [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/best_friend whether there was any truth to it.]]
** '''Major spoiler:''' It eventually turns out [[spoiler: to have been a lie, fed to her by Blair, who suspected she might be the reincarnation of Queen Lamia. So he conditioned Nina to eat chocolate to prevent Lamia from being reborn. Except he'd been wrong about which of the Delacroix children it was to be. [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/all_the_signs_pointed_to_nina It was Layla]]]].
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Sorbet (Cessily's little sister) is scared of snakes. Seth is bad enough already, [[spoiler:but it gets much worse when she's reduced to the size of a doll, and the snake isn't]].
* {{Wingdinglish}}: Used by the EvilHand of Arman Purvis. The most transparent example [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/my_body_reacted here]].
* WitchWithACapitalB: Brooke calls Melissa, who, by the way, does actually have magic powers, a witch [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/can_i_say_something_here here.]]
-->'''Brooke:''' Ace, tell this ''witch'' you are too good for her.
* WithFriendsLikeThese:
** Cerise may be a part of Melissa's Coven and is said to be one of her best friends, but sometimes, [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/better_you_than_me[=.=] you really]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/magick_chicks_-_holiday_special_-_1_of_2 have to]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/mc_-_preliminary_sketches wonder about that.]]
** In the earlier part of the comic, Ace used to want nothing to do with Nina, who thought of Ace as her friend. Despite his efforts to avoid her, he always wound up being stuck with her anyway, and ''[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/i_am_too_bashful! always]]'' wound up [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/you_will_wear_the_sweater%EF%BC%9F suffering for it.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Chloe got a little power-drunk when her succubus powers were [[AmplifierArtifact enhanced]]. This gradually got from a fairly innocent to full-on crazy.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: A minor example: "Oh my beloved Chloe... wherefore art thou?"
* WorldOfWeirdness: Whether it's just a fact of life at [[AllGhoulsSchool Charybdis]], or if it's limited to only Nina and her friends, one thing is clear: weird shit happens. A lot.
** Like the time Chloe unexpectedly hit puberty, causing her pheromones to flood the school and turn all the boys into [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/smell_the_pink Chloe obsessed "zombies".]] Which ended with Layla and Brooke cornered by the mob, 'til Nina got to the fire alarm ([[http:/www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/short_girls with help from Blair]]).
** Or the time Nina wound up [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/real_evil trapped in the cursed mirror]], while the Nina-ganger ran amok causing... [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/less_abominable mischief?]] Though they eventually got her back into the mirror and saved Nina, with help from the goofy blonde girl, who fell on her own sword after her shoelaces were tied together and [[AnAstralProjectionNotAGhost wound up]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/cozy_spot outside her body.]]
** Then there was [[GenderBender the Tiresias Orb incident]], where Blair nearly turned the entire student body into big breasted airheaded blondes, to suit his perverse ideal. Which thankfully came to an end, though the less said about ''[[BrainBleach how]]''...[[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boobs_go_away! the better.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki:
** The uniforms for Charybdis Heights have this at Class-C.
** Melissa's CuteWitch costume too.
** Also Nina's dress for her first date with Ace.
* ZombieApocalypse: Okay, they are not zombies, but [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/gesundheit! boys under the influence of an overdose of Succubus pheromones]], but that doesn't stop them from invoking every ZombieApocalypse trope in the book.
