Good luck with that!

Explaining the plot is like explaining a train wreck. Not a bad kind of train wreck. Y'know, the kind of train that has lots of elephants, and [[CuteKitten puffy kitties]], [[DisSimile and weird superheroes...]]

A half-[[DadaComics Dada]], half-{{Adventure}}, entirely comical webcomic about Otra and Winter, two girls with more than their share of quirks who live together in the city of [=CuteTown.=] They go on adventures (for the sake of adventuring). There is a very eclectic supporting/main cast, including, but not in any way limited to: El Chubacabre (or Chuy)- a carefree, then troubled (oh handy Main/CharacterDevelopment) young man with unique [[KavorkaMan women issues]], Collette- a half-cutpaste videogame nerd, Policeguy- a responsible, pragmatic officer of the law and occasional Main/ButtMonkey, Lucy- a self-declared genius veterinarian/animal fitness trainer, Chuy's two brothers- who are attempting to get revenge for their brother (despite the fact Chuy is fine), Captain Fist - [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin whose head is a fist]] - and the rest of the [=CuteTown=] PD.

An overall lighthearted comedy, it revels in its own quirky humor. There's more to it than one might expect.

The series also [[PlayingWithATrope plays with tropes]] left and right, and in some very interesting ways that must be seen to be believed. It is definitely worthy of your time, and is recommended reading for tropers.

What many people probably don't know is that ''Girly'' is actually a sequel to his previous comic ''[[http://cutewendy.com/ Cute-Wendy]]'' which in turn was an alternate take on Lesnick's original webcomic and personal OldShame, ''{{Wendy}}'', which can be found [[http://joshlesnick.com/wendy/?comic=51 here]].

After [[http://girlyyy.com/go/764 764 strips]], the comic reached its GrandFinale, but Josh is currently making a spinoff (set inbetween various [[TimeSkip Time Skips]] within the comic) called ''[[http://superhappy.tumblr.com/tagged/down+together Down Together]]''. Josh Lesnick's main project for a little while was ''Doctor Voluptua'' (too NSFW to link), and he's also a contributing artist and founder of ''Slipshine'', a paysite, but now he's dedicating all of his time to working on ''[[http://prinpan.tumblr.com/ Princess Panic]]'', a 2-D video games project with PaperMario-styled gameplay in the (very) early planning stages. Lesnick also has a new webcomic called ''Webcomic/YouSuck'' which can be found [[http://yousuckthecomic.com/ here]].

Now has a character sheet.

----
!!This series contains examples of:

* AWinnerIsYou: Referenced in ''Cutewendy''.
* ActionGirl: Several. Winter and Otra to be sure, but also Officer Hipbone. Collete has even had a few, though mostly video game related.
* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: Business Sidekick]]
* AltText: Since #151.
* ArtEvolution: And how. The most recent strips are the most glaringly evolved.
** Josh Lesnick made a conscious decision at one point to stop imitating manga artists and remove many of the Japanese elements in his art. His style is much more influenced by western-cartoons now.
*** As recent as comic #754, Lesnick has acknowledged that his art had slowly become anime influenced again over time.
-->"My art became so anime again, I don't even know how it happened this time."
-->"You can never escape anime."
* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler: with Otra and Winter's daughter and ''her'' sidekick]].
** Or as the comic puts it: [[spoiler: Never The End...]]
* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: El Chupacabre's name is not meant to evoke the chupacabra at all; the name was chosen just because it sounds funny when said in an outrageous accent. His brothers follow the same pattern, naming themselves with a [[WordSaladTitle semi-comprehensible string of Spanish words]] that changes every time it's mentioned. WordOfGod also says that they are not Hispanic.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: [[spoiler:Officer Getskilled]]
** And yes, that is the mother of all subversions.
* AuthorAppeal: References to 1940's cartoon history, a strip referencing one of the author's favorite bands (which doubles as a TitleDrop and ShoutOut to the song that he named the strip after).
* BackForTheFinale: Everyone who had a name or a unique character design returned to help fight off the final enemies.
* BadassNormal: Covers most of the cast at various points, but the [=CuteTown=] PD especially.
* BattleCouple: Otra and Winter, Policeguy and Hipbone.
* BeardOfEvil: The upgraded [[spoiler:Captain Fist Robot]].
* BetaCouple: Chuy and Autumn, Policeguy and Hipbone
* {{BFS}}: Otra's {{weapon of choice}}.
* BilingualBonus: The nurse's assistant is speaking perfectly good french... [[CanadianAccents Quebec french, that is]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Otra]].
* BrickJoke: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/411 The ninjas]] Policeguy mentions [[http://girlyyy.com/go/413 appear in the flesh]] a few strips later.
** Detective Clampjaw left without ever finding Chupacabre. When they both [[http://girlyyy.com/go/703 returned to the comic]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/704 at the same time...]]
* BoundAndGagged: [[spoiler:Captain Fist after being kidnapped.]]
** [[spoiler:Winter's parents when they were kidnapped.]]
*** [[spoiler:{{Tethercat principle}}: their fate is never really addressed]]
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Winter, a capable adventurer with many eccentricities (the largest one being her fondness for adventures)
* CallingYourAttacks: Including a ShoutOut to the [[GGundam king of the trope]]. And with...
** CombinationAttack
** Also: ([[http://girlyyy.com/go/751 Super]]) [[http://girlyyy.com/go/110 Kitten Bomber]].
* CanadianAccents: The nurse's assistant speaks with a Quebec French accent during the last part of the story.
* CaptainErsatz: Detective Clampjaw and [[PunnyName Nickel]], of InspectorGadget and Penny. Policeguy provides the mandatory LampshadeHanging.
* CatsAreMean: Or at least pretty [[BadAss hardcore]].
* TheCavalry: Happen a few times during the story:
** Black cat dad and his son come to the rescue of the rest of the family, after they got beat down by the (real) boss.
** Hipbone and Getskilled later save both Otra and Winter [[http://girlyyy.com/go/672 here]].
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:All of the sex censoring animals. ''All of them''.]]
* ChestInsignia: Otra begins to contemplate the zero on her shirt as an O after Winter points it out.
* ClothingDamage: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/681 "Stop! Our attacks are only making them sexier!"]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Winter ''[[http://girlyyy.com/go/16 invented]]'' this trope.
* CombinedEnergyAttack: Treated with the same silliness as everything else.
* CovertPervert: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/475 Winter]], surprisingly.
** Marshmallow Kitty is somewhere between this and downright [[LovableSexManiac sex fiend.]]
** All things considered, you'd probably think Vet Lucy was pretty normal, too. Turns out, you'd be [[http://girlyyy.com/go/649 wrong.]]
* CursedWithAwesome: Chupacabre is irresistible to women, the greatest lover alive, and apparently has unlimited sexual stamina. It makes having a meaningful relationship kinda hard.
** Averted in his initial appearance, where he's completely unaware that his existence is abnormal (or that women are physically incapable of rejecting him). Played straight once he gets a clue.
** Eventually both he and his [[spoiler:ex-wife]] learn to embrace their power as nigh-insatiable, irresistible love-gods.
* CutenessOverload: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/329 KBOOM]]
** YourHeadAsplode
* DenserAndWackier: Inverted -- ''Girly'' is less dense than ''Cute-Wendy'' was, and while it is still wacky, it's more coherently so. (Also, CerebusSyndrome eventually sets in . . .)
* DestructoNookie: Subverted. Sex is quite literally a weapon in the ''Girly'' world.
* DeusSexMachina: [[spoiler:The ultimate ThePowerOfLove attack used on the BigBad.]]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/180 Does it ever!]]
** There's no way [[http://girlyyy.com/go/499 the last panel here]] was an accident.
* DuckSeasonRabbitSeason: Played straight [[http://girlyyy.com/go/624 here]].
* DudeLooksLikeALady: Officer Policeguy, though he got a haircut after [[UnsettlingGenderReveal his first encounter with Chuy]].
* EatsBabies: As of 761, Winter, of all people.
** What? She's always done that, she tried to eat the giant baby in [[http://girlyyy.com/go/4 page four!]]
*** She doesn't really eat them, she just [[http://girlyyy.com/go/507 nibbles and drools on them a bit...]]
* EvilMakeover: Good GOD, [[spoiler:Otra!]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/719 Talk about]] DarkerAndEdgier!
* {{Expy}}: A cavalcade of Josh's obscure and semi-obscure creations have appeared in the comic over the years.
** Doctor Lucy and Nurse Yumi would be the most recognizable ones. They both come from his previous webcomic ''Wendy''. Miki and her sister Yuki (who appeared in many old comics of his, but ''Wendy'' is the best known) also appear briefly as [[spoiler:Evil Sidekicks]] toward the end of the comic.
** The [=HappyCo=] staff -- consisting of Tina the chairman, Cheyenne the secretary, the bodyguards Miles and Headlock, and the scientist Broadway -- are all taken from his unfinished fantasy adult comic ''The Pet Elf''. All the characters are drawn with hairstyles and headgear to hide the elf ears and ogre horns they originally had.
** Josh Means and Lemon are childhood creations of his. Some of their comics are archived in his [[http://joshlesnick.com/ joshlesnick.horse]] site.
** Captain Fist starred in a couple one-off comics during the ''Cutewendy'' days, before finally getting a starring role in ''Girly''
** The Knight originated from a comic he did for a high school assignment. Also archived at joshlesnick.horse.
** Finally, Cutewendy herself was a character exported from ''Wendy''... this character creation got the whole snowball rolling that led to ''Girly'''s creation. Essentially, the comic's entire existence stemmed from an Expy.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:Otra]] seems to have pulled this [[http://girlyyy.com/go/698 here]].
** Thankfully, it [[http://girlyyy.com/go/754 didn't last long]].
* FakeUltimateHero: Captain Fist.
* FanService: Where do we begin?
--> Now tear her dress a bit!
* {{Fetish}}: A gang of vore fetishists makes an [[http://girlyyy.com/go/510 appearance]].
--> '''Alt Text:''' I apologize to those who had to go look this up and learn something they could have spent their whole lives without knowing.
** Don't forget the author himself, with his rather obvious one that shows up in all his works.
* FlashBack: Plenty of 'em, too. Often act as [[BreatherEpisode Breather Moments]].
** Chapter XIII is an arc about Winter avoiding having flashbacks after an arc that was loaded with them. A TakeThat [[http://girlyyy.com/go/521 toward Family Guy]] indicates that Lesnick may have wanted to stop his comic from becoming similarly overloaded by flashbacks.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: That hackneyed romantic comedy plot Pop-Culture Girl outlines in the [[http://girlyyy.com/go/1 first two panels]] of the comic ever? [[spoiler:That's a pretty handy summary of the first four chapters.]]
* FreakyFridayFlip: Gets a story arc.
* GambitPileup: Parodied [[http://girlyyy.com/go/490 here]].
* GenreSavvy: Collette.
* GodivaHair: [[spoiler:Otra]].
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Not particularly used for [[ComedicUnderwearExposure comic effect]] -- Chuy just seems to like wearing these.
* GrandFinale
* GrievousHarmWithABody: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/510 Here]].
* GroinAttack: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/383 Here.]]
* HappilyMarried: Chuy and Autumn ''were'' this, until it was discovered that monogamy was literally killing Chuy. They divorced, allowing Chuy (and Autumn) to casually screw other people as well. They're still an OfficialCouple, they just have lots of sex with other people in addition to each other.
* HartmanHips: Most of the girls in the comic are guilty of this. Winter and Hipbone are two glaring examples.
* {{Hammerspace}}: Where Otra's sword and Winter's giant dildo reside when not in use.
* HasTwoMommies: Winter has two female parents. Both of them biological.
** It actually makes sense - well, at least as much as it can - if you followed ''Cute Wendy''.
** [[spoiler: And Winter and Otra's daughter seen in the [[GrandFinale epilogue]] fulfills this trope.]]
* {{Henshin}}: Orta [[http://girlyyy.com/go/757 here]]. From nude to dressed to the nines simply by drawing her trademark O/Zero. Of course, she is a fashion designer. In this comic, that makes sense.
* HideYourLesbians: Subverted and Lampshaded with [[http://girlyyy.com/go/540 Getskilled]].
* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: Sir Walter Scott, in the ShowWithinAShow. (Or so I assume.)
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Many of the characters watch an action-drama show called ''Action Up the Butt'', featuring Victorian authors shooting each other with semi-automatics to gain each other's literary powers. MarkTwain and OscarWilde are treated as villains, while Sir Creator/WalterScott gets a HistoricalHeroUpgrade. However, it [[http://girlyyy.com/go/631 did not last]].
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/639 The Pop-culture sidekick.]]
* HypercompetentSidekick: Slightly subverted. Winter and Otra work quite well as a team; however, Winter is useless without a sidekick to protect, while Otra, though perfectly capable of solo adventures, hates doing them.
** Later played straight in the last storyline with multiple new sidekicks popping up. It was eventually justified [[spoiler:as they were specifically created to be perfect sidekicks]] and then deconstructed when the sidekicks decide to take the lead due to being so much better than the people they followed.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Winter's giant talking dildo and [[spoiler:the epic dildo sword she made by combining it with Otra's sword]].
* InformedAbility: One of Chuy's brothers has a [[http://girlyyy.com/go/420 culinary degree from the Academy of Vancouver]]. Apparently this trope applies even more than usual, as even he forgot about it.
* InformedAttribute: Collete is half-cutpaste.
** This one was actually demonstrated thoroughly and consistently up until the final arcs of the comic; the problem was that ''nobody got the joke'' until it was spelled out.
* InHarmsWay: As one chapter title puts it, "The Adventure Never Ends".
* InMediasRes: Chapters I and XII, among other things.
* InnerMonologue: Makes up a good deal of the script, at least at first. This gets lampshaded, and perhaps justified, later.
** Becomes entirely necessary when one of the main characters is [[FreakyFriday transferred into the body of a cat.]]
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: Parodied with a massive ShoutOut to GGundam [[http://girlyyy.com/go/494 here]].
* JugglingLoadedGuns: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/483 Lampshaded]], as well as justified.
* KavorkaMan: Chuy, even when he's at his most depressed, has to beat off women with a stick.
* KnightsAndKnaves: Parodied.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: After a hard blow on the head, Yumi forgot ''how to speak English!''
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: "All this swirly pitch blackness," "It's probably because it's so easy to draw...[[spoiler:[[http://girlyyy.com/go/760 our attention with it]].]]"
* LimitBreak: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/494 Of all shapes and sizes]] ([[spoiler:Chuy's is a pelvic-thrust energy strike]]).
* LetsGetDangerous: Just about any fight scene uses this.
* LookBehindYou: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/196 Subverted]].
* LoveChart: Found [[http://joshl.deviantart.com/art/Girly-relationship-chart-37620093 here]] on Josh Lesnick's deviantART page (although it is currently two years behind).
** Some might argue a LoveDodecahedron here, but many of the relationships on the chart are non-romantic.
* LoveEpiphany: At the end of Chapter 3.
* MamaBear Or rather, [[http://girlyyy.com/go/657 Mama Cat]].
* TheManBehindTheMan (or rather, the Elephant behind the [[http://girlyyy.com/go/661 Lion]] behind the [[http://girlyyy.com/go/660 Walrus.]])
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Winter.
** Interestingly, this seems to be a personality she developed purely to get Otra. Before her, she was a very cultured, dull and incredibly selfish girl. So while having none of the personality of the ManicPixieDreamGirl, Otra still plays the role for Winter.
* MeaningfulName: The police guy who keeps running into Otra and Winter at the beginning of the strip is actually named Danforth Policeguy. Seriously.
** There's also Officer Oneshot, who appears for a single story arc, then vanishes entirely.
** And, of course, our protagonist, Otra. [[BilingualBonus "Otra" means "other" in Spanish]]. In addition to reflecting her initial feelings of isolation and loneliness, Otra's name is a callback to ''Girly'''s parent strip ''Cute-Wendy'', wherein Cute-Wendy's sidekick was known as "the other girl."
* MomentKiller: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/755 Here.]] Yes, an unspeakable monstrosity of pure evil is just a moment killer. It's that kind of comic.
* ModernMinstrelsy: In a ShoutOut to a common [[DiscreditedTrope discredited]] [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation Golden Age]] sight gag, a white guy gets accidentally covered in black paint and exclaims, "Oh, Lawdy!" The UnfortunateImplications are mitigated by the black guy standing next to him immediately being covered in white paint, and by the fact that the chapter in question contains many Golden Age tropes and sight gags throughout. Also see RefugeInAudacity.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/128 The omelet's so good it speaks]] [[AsLongAsItSoundsForeign German!]]
* MyFavoriteShirt: Subverted [[http://girlyyy.com/go/423 here]]
* NeverBringAKnifeToAFistfight: Parodied (among others) [[http://girlyyy.com/go/483 here]]
* [[NewPowersAsThePlotDemands New Powers As The Silliness Demands]]
* NoManOfWomanBorn: Not actually a prophecy, just a phrase: [[spoiler:During Otra's FaceHeelTurn, she says to Winter, "I don't want to be your sidekick anymore". How did Winter get her back? [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Saying she'll be Otra's sidekick from now on if that's what it takes.]]]]
* NominalImportance / MeaningfulName: Subverted, Inverted, Played with, Lampshaded...just about anything ''except'' played straight. What else can you say when one of the protagonists is named "Officer Policeguy"?
** Though Officer Getskilled is for sure the major offender...[[spoiler: of subversion]].
*** [[spoiler: Played straight, apparently, [[http://girlyyy.com/go/678 here]] and then subverted, with prejudice, [[http://girlyyy.com/go/679 here]].]] Ladies and gentlemen, this is how you play with a trope.
* NoNameGiven: Otra at first; Winter's mother.
* NoodleIncident: Many. Otra refers to a previous instance in which Winter instigated "interspecies animal bootknocking," and a lot of the plot of chapter VIII is driven by a particularly crazy adventure that is never explained.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Not only is Doctor Lucy an omnidisciplinary veterinarian (shown at various times performing optometry, chiropractics, dentistry, psychiatry and aerobic instruction on various animals), she is also a GadgeteerGenius and an [[FriendToAllLivingThings elephant-whisperer]].
** Also a debatable aversion of MadScientist: Doctor Lucy is sometimes arrogant (quick to remind people of her genius), but her abilities are always used for the good of the community.
* OnlySaneMan: Otra (at least most of the time)
** Policeguy tends toward this as well.
* OutOfClothesExperience: Lampshaded.
* PairTheSpares: Immortal Guy and [[spoiler:Officer Getskilled]], as more-or-less confirmed by the GrandFinale.
* PieEyed: A few characters become this through ArtEvolution, most notably Captain Fist.
* PlayingWithFire: Fred Burrows, who is also [[PersonalityPowers an arsonist]]. Go figure.
* PoliceAreUseless: Subverted heavily. Girly's police regularly show up the resident superhero and occasionally even the protagonists. Just two of [=CuteTown's=] police are able to best an entire squad of [[SuperSoldier genetically modified super police]] without taking any [[ClothingDamage real damage]].
* PowerOfLove: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/720 And how!]]
** And the latest strip has given us an example on par with the [[GGundam Sekiha Love Love Tenkyouken]]. [[http://girlyyy.com/go/763 Seriously.]]
* PrehensileHair: Huh. Didn't know ''[[spoiler: OTRA?!]]'' could do that.
* PrecisionFStrike: Graphical instead of in dialog, but still.. [[spoiler: after years of censor panels, the "climatic" "battle" is fully explicit.]]
* PropheticName: Pretty much all the [=CuteTown=] P.D. Poor, poor Officer Getskilled.
* PunnyName: Collette is a pun on "collate", since she is half-cutpaste.
* PutOnABus: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/83 Literally]] with Detective Clampjaw (probably intended at the time to be a LongBusTrip. [[spoiler: It took him over 600 pages to return to the story.]]). Played straight with Chuy and Autumn's [[spoiler: summer-long honeymoon]].
** Note the AltText for that [[WordOfGod admitted]] [[LampshadeHanging it was a pretty lame way]] to write them out for a while.
* {{Qipao}}: [[spoiler:Otra and Winter's daughter wears something like this.]]
* RedShirt: Most of the Cute PD besides Policeguy, Hipbone, and the Chief. Officers Getskilled and Oneshot both make the leap to MauveShirt, then Getskilled achieves something close to AscendedExtra status (and finally just [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence ascends]]).
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Marshmallow Kitty and her children, leading to CutenessProximity effects [[http://girlyyy.com/go/64 on]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/62 various]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/37 characters]].
* RunningGag: Elephants.
* SexGod: El Chupacabra possesses legendary skills to please any woman (and practically every woman) he ever faces. The action itself is never shown, but the immediate aftermath, quite a lot. Generally the ladies are barely able to walk from all the fun their nerves had.
* SexyDiscretionShot: Whenever two characters have sex, they are drawn [[http://girlyyy.com/go/121 frolicking through a meadow with adorable forest creatures]], in {{Kawaisa}} form.
** [[http://girlyyy.com/go/763&comments=on#comments Then this happened.]]
* SheCleansUpNicely: Actually, [[http://girlyyy.com/go/407 they]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/408 both]] do.
* ShoutOut: A ''lot'':
** InspectorGadget and Penny (Detective Clampjaw and Nickel).
** That college girl who looks like Gadget from ''WesternAnimation/ChipNDaleRescueRangers''.
** ShoutOut to many video games, in this [[http://girlyyy.com/go/658 comic]] (including ''VideoGame/BalloonFight'', ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' and even the NintendoHard genre).
** Strip 663: the way the kitties unite and attack the enemy is an obvious shout out of ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}''.
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Action Up the Butt''.
* ShutUpHannibal: "Nice try."
* SickAndWrong: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/512 A giant chicken lays a giant egg]]. Winter cooks the giant egg into a giant omelet and shares it with the chicken.
-->'''Otra:''' This is like eight million degrees of wrong.
* {{Sidekick}}: Just about every character either has one or is one. This becomes a major plot point later.
* SingleStrokeBattle: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/744 Oh]] [[http://girlyyy.com/go/745 yes]].
* SkunkStripe: Collete, sorta, kinda.
** Now she has two-toned hair.
* SlapSlapKiss: Or Insult Insult Sex...
** [[spoiler:Also {{Subverted}} in the mallard/chicken fight]].
* SlowClap: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/517 As done by]] Creator/OscarWilde.
* SmokingIsCool: Sandra says it herself [[http://girlyyy.com/go/723 here]].
* SpinoffBabies: As revealed on the last page, [[spoiler:Otra and Winter's]] daughter and [[spoiler:Chuy and Autumn's]] daughter grow up, pair off, and go have adventures of their own.
* SpriteMirroring: In a rare non-video game example, one of visual cues that Collete is half cut-paste (before the artist stopped bothering with it) was that when she turned in one direction her shirt would be mirrored from its design when she's facing the other way. Especially obvious when she's wearing a shirt with writing on it.
* StandardFemaleGrabArea: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/671 Here]], [[http://girlyyy.com/go/672 here]], and Lampshaded [[http://girlyyy.com/go/673 here]].
* StylisticSuck: The in-universe print comic Funny Bunnies, among others.
* SunglassesAtNight: Hipbone wears these so often, Policeguy doesn't recognize her when she appears without them.
* SuperMovePortraitAttack: The ''entire'' cat family does one during the 663th strip.
* SuperSoldier: [[spoiler:Possibly Otra.]]
** The Police sidekicks are also super soldiers, not that it helps them for very long.
* TakeOurWordForIt: {{Subverted}} and {{Lampshaded}} in comic 511.
* TakeThat: Collete's father was drawn entirely with cut-paste, both in ''Girly'' and its precursor, ''Cute-Wendy''. Her mother was drawn normally, and so she wound up being ''half'' cut-paste. Having her like video games falls right in line with the many other times he has criticized the [[CutAndPasteComic artwork]] of many GamingWebcomics.
* TakingTheBullet
* ThrowTheDogABone: Policeguy generally catches a break these days.
* ThunderingHerd: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/598 In Strip 598]]. The natural result of any chase scene involving a pair of gigantic household pets.
* TimeSkip: The story sometimes jumps ahead a few months between chapters. ''Down Together'' is about what Otra and Winter get up to within those months.
* TomatoInTheMirror: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/697 NOOOOOO!]]
** Actually [[spoiler:AndThenJohnWasAZombie]].
*** [[spoiler: She got better. The PowerOfLove wins again!]]
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Our main duo, though the "Girly" moniker was first slapped on Otra, the tomboy.
* TooKinkyToTorture: Immortal Guy!
** And [[spoiler: Lucy]].
* TookALevelInBadass: Anyone else notice how Policeguy's gone from a somewhat wimpy ButtMonkey to trouncing entire teams of EliteMooks and making [[http://girlyyy.com/go/674 one of the most badass entrances on record?]]
** Well he kinda was always that Badass. He just escaped his ButtMonkey status.
* TykeBomb: [[spoiler:Otra]], apparently.
* WebcomicTime: Mildly lampshaded in [[http://girlyyy.com/go/429 strip #429]] with "It feels like it's been two years, six months and seven days when it's actually been two months and five days!"
** Also done earlier when Otra comments it felt like she knew Winter for a year when it had only been three days.
* WhamEpisode: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/697 Oh. My. God.]]
** [[http://girlyyy.com/go/709 Hope!]]
* WimpFight: [[http://girlyyy.com/go/514 Otra's fight in the background.]]
* WouldntHitAGirl: Parodied/lampshaded during a fight between [[spoiler:a mallard drake and a female chicken]].
* VillainsNeverLie: See the wham episode. [[spoiler:Subverted.]]
* YourTomcatIsPregnant
* YuriGenre: Otra and Winter's relationship is surprisingly deep, especially considering Lesnick's, ahem, [[BleachedUnderpants other work]].
** Does it count as BleachedUnderpants if they're still drawing porn and they advertise their porn site all the time?
* ZombieApocalypse: By the looks of [[http://girlyyy.com/go/629 this]] comic....
