Jix is a sci-fi webcomic by Micah [=McNully=] about a blue-furred alien princess with multiple personalities named Jix (and Remula, and Lamerix, and "The Ambis") who lives with a human family consisting of Lauren Akana, her husband Paul, and daughter Alice, in New York. Joining them are Jix's brother Romulus (later revealed to actually be her cousin Caligos), and two droids Dyonus and Dyona. Can be found on [[http://www.theduckwebcomics.com/Jix/ The Duck]] or [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/ ComicFury]].
----
!!Includes examples of:

* ABoyAndHisX: Okay, a girl and an alien.
* AffablyEvil: Remula's father is this, believe it or not. He may be a intergalactical tyrant that is more than willing to achive revenge on anyone who crosses his path. However, [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/75 as show in this trip]], he's a suprisingly reasonable individual with you clear your mistake, is polite, and it's worth to metion that he only tried to kill Remulus because he believed that he kidnapped his daughter. Yep, [[PapaWolf he deeply cares for his family]].
* AlienAmongUs
* AlienAnimals: foxes share a common ancestor with Ambis and another alien race known as Amblians, thanks to the [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/548 meddling]] of the Tarians.
* AlmightyJanitor: As show in the ''Deliverance Arc'', Paul is more than capable to bully the whole hospital to do what he wants, despite being just a paramedic.
* AlternateUniverse: The Colony and Queen arcs take place in an alternate universe where the Ambis conquered earth.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Blue, red, green, black, white, and purple Ambis have all been spotted.
* AmnesiacDissonance: How Jix emerged.
* ArtEvolution: Pretty impressive, especially since Jix got a mouth.
* AttractiveBentSpecies: Evidently both Jix and Lauren under the effects of the species-swap ray.
* BodyBackupDrive: Dyonus and Dyona have pulled that trick due to being AIs, though Dyona had to share Dyonus's body for a while.
* BountyHunter: Pratos, also known as Aranis. Mericax is another one.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Not uncommon for characters to joke about Micah.
* BringMyBrownPants: Multiple times, [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/651 once]] Remula had to take a bath after Jix pissed herself.
* CerebusSyndrome: Slowly and downplayed to the point of near-aversion, because despite the character driven arcs, mild world bulding and [[CerebusRetcon some of the most surreal aspects of the webicomic being explained]] (or at least HandWaved), the webcomic is still pretty comedic and slice-a-life style, and the Fourt Wall Breaking never stops.
** However, how wacky or "''serious''" the story can get [[CerebusRollercoaster varies from Arc-to-Arc]]. The prequel "''Prelude to Jix''" is mildly but visible somber and character driven than most other arcs, with [[WordofGod the autor]] [[LampshadeHanging even commenting]] [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/206 that this particular arc was less funny than most of the other arcs]]. Also, "''The Thief Planet''" Arc, as noticed by the author, is notable Darker than most other arcs, but still pretty much comic.
* CompleteImmortality: The Planet Thief and everyone he's given immortality to [[spoiler: Aragara, Maricax, Heleatra...]]
* ContagiousAI: When Aranis tried to get rid of Dyonus he retaliated by infecting her armor and the house's computers.
* {{Crossover}}: Frequently with Micah's other comic [[http://dragoncity.thecomicseries.com/comics/ Dragon City]]
** And [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/620 once]] with [[http://henchman9.thecomicseries.com ''Henchman no. 9'']], one of his other comics.
* {{Cyborg}}: In Heleatra's introductory arc "Ghost in the Shell" she received a prosthetic body due to a degenerative genetic disorder. [[spoiler: Until Remula made a deal with Kelelder to get her a HealingFactor.]]
* DarkSkinnedBlond: Atra's human form.
* DataPad: Jix [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/498 once]] compared the [=iPad=] to her own species' tablet computers.
* DeadlyGame: In "The Gauntlet" Lauren is kidnapped onto an alien game show where she is hunted and has to get off world.
* TheDogIsAnAlien: Jix and other Ambis are often mistaken for such.
* TheDragon: Kelelder's daughter Aragara essentially filled that role for him.
* TheEmpire: The Ambis Empire.
* FourthWallMailSlot: [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/703 Ask Remula]]
* FreakyFridayFlip: Yet [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/178 another]] one of Lamerix's inventions.
* FunetikAksent: Deadratic Ambis Heleatra and Maricax speak Ambis common with an accent. Which is apparently from learning the language the old fashioned way rather than downloading it since Atra speaks English normally.
* GadgeteerGenius: Lamerix, and Remula in her spare time.
* GenderBender: One of Lamerix's inventions.
* GodEmperor: Kelelder the Planet Thief has a legion of followers who believe him to be a god, and he admits that for all he knows he is one. [[spoiler: And he does briefly become the Ambis Emperor, apparently for the second time, but he reveals that his goal was simply to put a descendant of his on the throne and hands it to Aratrix.]]
* GroinAttack: [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/543 "Amblian codpieces are the weakest part of the armor."]]
* HolographicDisguise: The droids have them integrated and the Ambis have watches that can project 'em.
* HulkingOut: Ambis can usually turn into a "feral mode" at will, size depends on age and skill.
* HyperspaceArsenal: Used to explain where Ambis without clothes hide their guns. And where their [[ShapeshifterBaggage extra mass]] in feral mode [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/320 comes from]].
* ImmortalLifeIsCheap: Kelelder's head was blown up at the start of his first battle with Jix, it grew back and he started fighting again, and he has been teleported into the sun twice. Heleatra once demonstrated her immortality by stabbing herself in the stomach, and has been filled with tranquilizer darts, [[TheyWouldCutYouUp vivisected]], and shot in the head with a raygun.
* IncestIsRelative: There are an unusual number of jokes about incest (starting with the arc where Jix thought she was pregnant and the only male Ambis on earth was her "brother") but the closest thing that actually happened was Kelelder impregnating his distant descendant Aranis [[spoiler: and later Remula, though that was by IVF]].
* InterfaceSpoiler: The First, Previous, Next, and Latest comic buttons have images of [[spoiler: Jix's four personalities, which serves to spoil the reveal during the arc that introduces the fourth, The Ambis.]]
* InterspeciesRomance: Between Jix and Wayne, albeit mediated by Lamerix's species exchanger.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Paul is often show as a cynical, nearly humorless young adult that almost never leaves the SarcasmMode and serves as the "''unidimensional''" DeadpanSnarker of the strips. However, [[WordofGod according to the autor]], Paul is very kind and caring of Lauren, even i he doesn't shows this often. [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/366 this strip confirms his status]]. Later, in "'Kaijou''" Arc, after one of Lametrix's inventions accidently realeased a giant monster in New York and nearly killed Lauren and their unborn daughter, Paul was [[PapaWolf none to pleased with the results]] and [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/405 make's Lauren promised to have more control over Jix personalities]] [[JerkassHasAPoint citing that their recent actions are getting way to reckless for their safety]].
* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Most ranged weapons are slugthrowers. The author claims he doesn't like rayguns.
* LaserBlade: [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/307 "I can't help but think we're ripping something off."]]
* LetsGetDangerous: [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/788 In this strip, everyone does this]].
* LowCultureHighTech: The Ambis got most of their advanced tech from another species who tried to invade their homeworld centuries ago.
* MadScientist: Lamerix, she builds stuff like gender or species swap rays and interdimensional teleporters out of boredom.
* MadeOfIron: Maricax survived being cooked in his own armor with microwaves and being spaced with ruptured armor. And this was before Kelelder made him immortal.
* TheMenInBlack
* MulticulturalAlienPlanet: The Ambis have multiple languages and cultures, but Remula's is the dominant one, to the extent that her native language is called "Ambis Common".
* MultiplePersonalities: Jix/Remula/Lamerix/The Ambis
** EnemyWithout: Remula attempted to give herself her own body with a cloning machine, unfortunately it just copied them, both of them.
** SplitPersonalityMerge: Jix and Remula gave it a try early on, didn't work out.
* NeuralImplanting: Ambis have language downloaders to explain how they can learn english so easily, and how Lauren learned Ambis common.
* NonMammalMammaries: Up until around comic 790 all female Ambis had six small nipples, but then Lamerix used a breast enhancer to give herself/Jix and Atra human-style breasts because she thought they seemed useful (and the artist wanted to make them look more feminine).
* OneOfUs: [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/600 Refers to a couple tropes by name]]
* OneWingedAngel: Ambis species is capable to turn into a "''fierce''", monstrous form [[LetsGetDangerous when they want to went into battle]]. Jix has done this since the beggining of the strip, and [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/77 as shown into this strip]], the Fierce Form greatly varies from an Ambis to Ambis, from a slightly hideous aspect to a hulkling brute. It's also later explained that how large (and monstrous) an Ambis Fierce form can get [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/291 depends on the latters age and experience in the use of it]].
** ClippedWingAngel: Atra tried to use her Fierce Form on some US Agents, but they [[CombatPragmatist quickly responded by exploting]] [[AchillesHeel an obvious weakness in this form]]: [[RealityEnsues Her larger form is an easy target]], [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/772 and they shoot her down with tranquilizer darts]].
* {{Patronymic}}: The character page reveals that Ambis take their father's first names as last names.
* PerceptionFilter: In "The Fugitive" arc an Ambis grifter hiding out on earth uses one to pose as a dog, but Jix sees through it because she's insane and Atra didn't know what a dog was so she saw some Rosimban rat-thing.
* PlanetTerra: The Ambis name for Earth is [[NumberedHomeworld Sol III]], or at least that's what it's translated as.
* RapidAging: Aragara was subjected to that by her father, she's only a year or two old and already taller than her mother and cousins.
* {{Robosexual}}: Dyonus has a rather one-sided crush on Jix.
** Indeed, Dyonus affections towards Jix is so strong that [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/253 even gender swapped]], [[SingleTargetSexuality Dyonus disregards this completly]] (It actually makes sense [[FridgeBrilliance if you remenber]] that Ambis species doesn't have any strong sexaul dimorphism and, [[LampshadeHanging as notice by dyonus]], he is actually genderless being a robot).
* RunningGag: Lauren and Paul being mistaken for Asians (they're Hawaiian).
* SamusIsAGirl: Jix initially assumed she was male, having no memories of Ambis anatomy. And Micah admits that he hadn't decided to make her a girl until Caligos' introduction. [[spoiler: Jix's fourth personality]] and Pratos also count, having their genders obscured by their armor.
* SavingChristmas: The "Substitute Santa" arc where Caligos accidentally makes Santa throw his back out and has to fill in.
* ScarsAreForever: The scars from various injuries Jix, Caligos, and Aranis have suffered persist. Justified as Ambis consider scars "badges of honor."
* ShoutOut: To several different sci-fi series, mostly ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' and ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''.
** When Jix [[YourHeadASplode blows up Kelelder's head]] she starts to say [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 "They'll have to glue you back together, in he-"]], but then his head grows back, [[Film/MenInBlack "Do you have any idea how much that stings?"]]
--> Jix: "[[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/318 I got news from the Ambis that someone or something has targeted earth for destruction]]".
--> Lauren: "[[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy They aren't building a hyperspace bypass, are they?]]"
** [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/364 "And we will call it...]] [[Series/{{Firefly}} This land!]]
** Dyonus [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/463 watching]] ''Series/RedDwarf''.
** A small contest to figure out what three things were being referenced [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/581 here]]
** [[http://jix.thecomicseries.com/comics/597 "Area 51." "Area 51."]] [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail "It's only a model."]]
** Paul and Caligos are [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic bronies]], and so are Dyonus, Wayne, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Alice]].
** Characters are commonly depicted watching ''Film/DieHard''.
** One Christmas arc has Caligos confront an "[[SantaClaus intruder]]" on the roof, scaring him into falling off of it. Santa denies that it's exactly like ''TheSantaClause'', because he survived the fall.
* TalkingToThemself
* ThereCanBeOnlyOne: Jix actually quotes ''Franchise/{{Highlander}}'' when killing her clone, the original Remula doesn't find it very amusing.
