''Jenny Haniver'' is a SliceOfLife webcomic with LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters (at the moment, 128), opening with the college life of Jordan Davignon... and extrapolating from there. [[RotatingArcs There are, at any one time, several conflicts going on]], with new characters coming in, and old ones taking the back seat. Generally, the main groups focused on are [[CastHerd the Jenny Haniver crew (the original five or so characters), the GSA at Jordan's old highschool, and the several bands that either rival or tour with Jenny Haniver]].

In addition to the webcomic, the author writes a series of AlternateUniverse steampunk novels, featuring the same characters.

'''This series provides examples of:'''
* AerithAndBob: Jordan, Greg, Steve... and also Panagiotis, Faraji, and Qadira.
* ArtEvolution: [[http://www.jennyhaniver.net/comics/158404/shooting-the-messenger/ The first comic's art]] compared to [[http://www.jennyhaniver.net/comics/1053992/psycho-asian-girls-and-the-amazons-who-love-them/ the newer strips]]. The difference is staggering.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Varya deals one of these to Eidel[[spoiler: after she admits she cheated on her with Araceli.]]
* BadassGrandma: Ilene.
* BigEater: Tierney (the rare vegetarian variant), and Harrison, whose size is probably responsible for his diet.
* CampGay: Tweety, and Leighton.
* CastFullOfGay: The comic features all parts of the LGBT spectrum.
** The newest character is Taylor's long-lost little half-sister, Welsie. She's male-to-female trans.
** Jordan now identifies as transfeminine and nonbinary, and uses fey and jer pronouns.
** Tweety recently came out as a trans woman and now identifies as female.
* ClosetKey: Cody was Derek's.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Reese, as well as Kaori in her own insane way.

-->"You're cute as hell, you smell like coconuts, and you've got your best friend's raggedy old Popple as a guiding light. '''The world is yours'''."
* DeadpanSnarker: Much of the cast, but most notably Araceli and Faraji.

** Arguably Wren when it comes to Jordan.
* TheFashionista: Kaori, and to a lesser extent, Tweety.
** And Leighton.

** Not anymore, as Jordan identifies as transfeminine and nonbinary (and uses fey and jer pronouns), and Tweety now identifies as female.
* GagBoobs: Morrigan.

* GentleGiant: Vito, officially the biggest character (height and weight) of Jenny Haniver.
* GirlNextDoor: Bridget, a cute Christian girl who is overwhelmingly sweet and goes on yearly missionary trips.
* GossipyHens: Subverted in that the gossipy hens are usually gossipy [[IncrediblyLamePun cocks]].

* HatesEveryoneEqually: Darby Newell. Except his boyfriend, but hey, even Nietzche-loving nihilists need a little action.
* HetIsEw: Isabel subscribes to this belief.

** And with the [[spoiler: Ezra-seducing saga]], Evan has finally grown into this role.
* Metalhead: Vito, Vinny, Orion, and Soren.
* OfCorsetsSexy: Many fall into this trope- Araceli often wears corset-style tops, as well as Isabel, as part of her gothloli wardrobe. Applies to Yoshi when he's crossdressing.

* StupidSexyFlanders: Harrison induces this with poor Derek.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: James and Faraji.
* TransparentCloset: Tweety and Derek's were made of GLASS.
** Same with Leighton.
* {{Uke}}: Jordan, although fey tends to subvert many of the tropes associated with the role.

* {{Wham Line}}: "I was raped." -[[spoiler:-Tweety]]
