''Hexagon Death Squad'' is an ongoing webcomic by the troper known as [[{{AOD}} [AOD]]]. Started in 2008, it stars a six-woman assassination squad and their adventures as they take out "criminals" for a totalitarian PoliceState world government in an [[AlternateHistory alternate timeline]] Earth where the Cuban Missile Crisis led to a nuclear war.

The comic can be found [[http://hds.comicdish.com/ here.]]

* CityOfAdventure (Radioactive crater of adventure!)
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (Coral, again)

* EyesAlwaysShut
* {{Fanservice}}
* {{Flynning}}
* FiveManBand
* GenkiGirl (Allison)
* TheHero
* HeroicBSOD (Kaycee has a moment of this after she [[spoiler: steals Jenna's thunder by stabbing the BigBad in the back at the climax of the last FightScene in that chapter]].
* HollywoodHealing (Somehow Jenna had no bruises on her face, despite being punched in the face by a battle-nurse in Chapter 5)
* HotBlooded (When the blood starts pumping in this comic it runs ''very'' hot.)

* HighPressureBlood
* IAmNotLeftHanded
* ItGetsEasier (and Kaycee can't stand it)
* ImplausibleFencingPowers
* ImprobableAge (Mostly subverted in that most of the castmembers are 25 and older, with the exception of Kaycee [[OlderThanTheyLook who's really nineteen]]. No, really! She is!!)
* ImprobableWeaponUser (A major character in the Los Angeles arc uses [[spoiler: '''bladed yo-yo's''']])
* KarmaHoudini (Hexagon Death Squad is so unsubtle about their actions that they can only get away with it because the world is ruled by a PoliceState whose blessings they receive)

* KillHimAlready
* TheLancer (Allison Swayzee)
* MadeOfIron (Subverted in Chapter 2 as [[spoiler: Allison takes four arrows to her gut and is out of commission for the next three months as she recovers]].)

* OutOfTheInferno (Coral does this after [[spoiler: surviving a car crash while standing atop a humvee that EXPLODES. Oh, and did I mention that she just CHOPPED THE ROOF OPEN WITH A GIGANTIC SWORD?!]])
* PantyFighter (Subverted, as the HDS women - in general - tend to wear modest, functional clothing.)
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette (Coral, again.)
* PoliceState (willing to [[spoiler:sacrifice a few hundred people to get a few "terrorists"]])
* PowerLimiter (Subverted in Chapter 3, where [[spoiler: Arundhati just flat out ''lies'' that she was fighting without holding back.]]
* PsychoticSmirk (''Ohh yes'' Jenna indeed. Very much so.)
* RaceAgainstTheClock
* RainOfArrows (An early villain uses a [[MoreDakka '''Machine-Gun''' Crossbow]] to achieve this)
* ARealManIsAKiller
* RedOniBlueOni (Allison and Coral)
* RuleOfCool (The comic practically ''runs'' on this trope)
* ScaryShinyGlasses
* SchizoTech (The universal gun ban allows swords in a modern setting, though they're generally made of space-age materials)
* ShoutOut (Too numerous to count)
* SlasherSmile (Both Ari Raj and Jenna)
* TheSmartGuy (Kaycee is a cute lil' genius, she is.)
* TheStoic (Coral is either the EmotionlessGirl or this.)
* SwordFight (The world government of the comic was created just so as to justify having sword fights in a modern setting, with a global gun ban.)
* TookALevelInBadass (Kaycee does this after training for three months to perform a [[OneHitKill One-Hit-NOT-Kill]] ''fencing'' move.)
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture (HDS takes place in 2012, despite having nuclear-powered maglev trains.)
* WeaponOfChoice
* WellIntentionedExtremist (The main bad guys in the pilot arc are terrorists who support democracy.)
** In the same arc, the protagonists themselves, for the opposite reason.
* YourTerroristsAreOurFreedomFighters (Well, it's a PoliceState after all)
