'''[[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/ Level 30 Psychiatry]]''' is a webcomic hosted on ComicFury that asks "Have you ever noticed how insane video game characters are?" quickly followed by "What if they had a scrap of common sense and got professional help?"

The titular practice is run by Dr. Gardevoir, a [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Gardevoir]] who has somehow ''"broken through the'' ''[[PokemonSpeak language barrier"]]'' to help those who have lost their minds (or never had them in the first place) to reintegrate into society. Other main characters include [[VideoGame/MegaMan Roll]], the head of the MM Memorial Hospital and Gardevoir's friend, [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Head Nurse Chansey]], who has to deal with the physical problems, [[VideoGame/SpaceQuest former galactic hero and current bumbling janitor Roger Wilco]] and airheaded Trainee Nurse [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Audino]].

While most comics are separate entities there are intermittent arcs.
* Another Side: The stress of the job is beginning to get to Gardevoir.
* Olympics: A tie -in to the then-current London Olympic Games.
* Home Visit: Audino has a nightmare and decides to sleep over at Gardevoir's place
* Hire Expectations: After mistaking an ad-placing for part of the JobSystem, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Black Mage and White Mage]] join the hospital staff.
* Dawn of Misunderstanding: A Pokémon trainer who was unaware of the crossover arrives in Light City, along with her flirtatious Gallade.
* Malpractice Makes Imperfect: The hospital hosts tryouts for the vital role of surgeon, despite a lack of competent surgeons in Light City. HilarityEnsues.

Updates Sundays, [[ScheduleSlip usually.]] Late updates tend to be accompanied with "apology sprite comics" featuring author avatars of the creators.

!!Tropes include:

* [[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal Accessory Wearing Pokemon]]: Chansey and Audino wear nurse's hats, and Gardevoir's alter-ego wears glasses. Audino also wears a night cap and a ribbon at various points, both in hospital colors.
* ActionBomb: As a [[Videogame/{{Minecraft}} Creeper]] shows us, it's not a lot of fun when you have a nervous disposition.
* AfterTheEnd: The series takes place in a world created from the fused fragments of other worlds after an event known as ''The VG Cataclysm''.
* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: Discussed. Gardevoir mentions that Freud's theories are outdated but since they're well known they end up being what most game characters are based on, meaning she has to resort to them.
* AltText
* AndThenWhat: Doubles as an ArmourPiercingQuestion:
-->'''Gardevoir''': ''Do you even know what to do when you defeat [Mario]?''
-->'''Bowser''': ''No...''
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Gardevior disbelieves that Audino managed to find her place just by following her breathing, despite being having psychic powers and a best friend who's a SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid.
* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: Variation. Roger Wilco is rather disappointed when he finds out he's the exception to {{Rule34}}.
* ArtEvolution: Due to increasing personnel added to the comic the style has changed a lot. The initial comic was a rather crude sketch done in colored pencils. Eventually more artists and a colorist were added, giving quite an upgrade to the comic's style.
* ArtShift: It's bound to happen with three rotating artists, but special cases are:
** Child of Plight, drawn to resemble [[VideoGame/ChildOfLight its namesake.]]
** Brawl in the Tribute, a tribute to Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily, done in the style of early ones.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/133 Style Un-savvy]] with [[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters Athena]], complete with PaintingTheMedium.
* AsideGlance: Gardevoir, [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/74/ as shown here.]]
* UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest: The author comments for [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/71/ this strip]] point out that it is the first with an all-male cast, thus passing the ''Reverse'' Bechdel Test.
* BigScrewedUpFamily: [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]] and his family have issues, to say the least.
** The same goes for [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante and Trish]].
--> '''Gardevoir''': [[FreudWasRight Freud would've had a field day]] [[IncestSubtext with this family.]]
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[ConversedTrope Conversed]] by [[VideoGame/SilentHill Pyramid Head]].
--> ''[[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/212972 "If [Audino] was in my home genre of horror she would be the first to die after the ethnic minorities."]]''
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Deadpool, of course.
* BoundAndGagged: Sakura has to pull this to get Dan into the office.
** Apparently, this is how Deadpool scored his cameo by pulling this on one of the comic's staff.
* ButNowIMustGo: Backstory example. [[DissidiaFinalFantasy The Warrior of Light]] left the team for unspecified reasons and White Mage tries to send him a letter, hampered by the fact [[FeaturelessProtagonist she doesn't know his name.]]
* ButtMonkey: [[VideoGame/SpaceQuest Roger Wilco]]. In only his second appearance he is killed by a Witch. Gardevoir's lines indicate it's [[EverythingTryingToKillYou not the first time this sort of thing has happened,]] and this is proven as he is repeatedly maimed and mocked.
* CallBack: The comic introducing [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Nurse Chansey]] is called "To ER is Human..." The comic introducing [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Nurse Audino]] is called "...to Forgive, Asinine".
** White Mage and Black Mage note in ''Malpractice Makes Imperfect'' that they recieved no tryouts when they joined, referring to an earlier arc, ''Hire Expectations''.
* CasanovaWannabe: Dawn's Gallade, contrary to what his Pokédex entries state.
* CharacterBlog: Nurse Audino has a [[http://www.facebook.com/pages/Audino/228946077126970?ref=hl Facebook page]] where she posts her insights.
* TheCobblersChildrenHaveNoShoes: Gardevoir seems to have an idea of what's wrong with her, but as the only psychologist in the series, she can't really get a second opinion.
* ContinuitySnarl: In-Universe. The Franchise/StreetFighter writer's differing views on whether or not Charlie is alive really puts the strain on Guile.
* CultureClash: VideoGame/DukeNukem doesn't really get Pokémon battles.
* TheDitz: Audino lives up to her name.
* DrunkDriver: In a flashback [[Videogame/{{Kirby}} Meta Knight]] [[http://lvl30psy.webcomic.ws/comics/113/ drives the Halberd airship straight into King Dedede's castle]] while drunkenly celebrating his Smash Bros debut.
* EveryoneHasStandards: The Space Quest Narrator and [[{{Skullgirls}} Valentine]] who had respectively reveled in and caused Roger Wilco's violent death fall silent at the sight of the SurgeonSimulator protagonist's carnage.
* FourthWallMailSlot: Dr. Gardevoir has a Comic Fury account and can be messaged at [[http://comicfury.com/profile.php?username=Dr.%20Gardevoir her link]]. (Comic Fury account required.)
* FreudianCouch: Gardevoir orders them in bulk because the things get destroyed so often that there's a running out-of-universe game on guessing what colour the next couch will be an how long it'll last.[[note]]For the record, the current standings are as follows: original red, 2 comics, blown up by a creeper; gold, 11 comics, crushed by Bowser; black leather, 11 comics, glitched into unusable condition by Missingno; green, 3 comics, rendered unusable by Master Belch and burned offpanel by Roger; burgundy, 4 comics, used by Peter Puppy to beat Roger over the head; blue-gray, 11 comics, dyed a permanent orange by an Inkling.[[/note]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: While Gardevoir and Roll discuss the Xbox One Roger gets attacked by [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Morpha]] in the water cooler.
** This isn't the last time terrible things will happen to Roger in the background either.
* GenreSavvy: Kano came to the surgeon tryout to, quote "brainstorm some new fatalities". That he expected the fact that in a world where every video game character ever ended up, quite a few quacks would be showing up shows exactly how GenreSavvy he is.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Gardevoir wears a night gown at bedtime despite not wearing anything normally. It was lampshaded in the second strip she wore it in.
* HaveANiceDeath: Even if he's not the main character, Roger Wilco gets snarky comments from a text box when he dies.
* HardOnSoftScience: Inverted. Gardevoir doesn't think highly of physicists but that has more to do with the fact the ones at Black Mesa keep sending head crabs into her office.
* HeroicBSOD:
** Silver the Hedgehog suffers one when his warnings of a BadFuture are ignored in favour of the Olympics.
** Roll has a literal one after seeing naughty pictures of herself online.
* HighPressureBlood: [[VideoGame/SpaceQuest Roger]] [[ButtMonkey Wilco]].
* HoldYourHippogriffs: "Can't look a gift Rapidash in the mouth."
* HomemadeSweaterFromHell: Averted and Played Straight. Roll makes very nice and tasteful winter sweaters but while she puts the extra effort into Gardevoir's one, the egg-shaped Chansey gets a very ill-fitting sweater.
* HopelessSuitor: Gallade is shot down in less than 4 panels after his first appearance. He later tries to hit on [[Videogame/MischiefMakers Marina Liteyears]] and gets thrown across the room for this efforts.
* InkBlotTest: Done with [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Eggman]] who mostly sees his foes in pain.
* InteractiveNarrator: Like in Space Quest, Roger Wilco's narrator is this, but it can also converse with the characters.
* IOweYouMyLife: Gardevior apparently saved Roll's life at some point in the comic's backstory. Gardevior takes a ThinkNothingOfIt approach to it.
* JumpOffABridgeRebuttal: Gardevoir tries this on the Sniper and it backfires.
--> '''Glasses Gardevoir''': [[LampshadeHanging Has that cliff jumping question ever worked?]]
* [[TomatoInTheMirror Ken Masters in the Mirror]]: [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Rufus]].
* LightningCanDoAnything: Invoked and Subverted. [[spoiler: Gardevoir and Roll try it to cure Gardevoir's Hollywood schizophrenia but all it does is make Gardevoir's hair stand on end.]]
* LiteralMinded: [[{{Portal}} GLaDOS]] takes idioms as serious scientific questions, conducting ridiculous experiments including seeing how many angels can dance on a pinhead or tracking bears to see if they crap in the woods.
* LivingProp: [[VideoGame/BlazBlue Arakune]] is forever on a chair in the waiting room.
* MotorMouth: [[VideoGame/Left4Dead Ellis]], to the point that Gardevoir charges an extra $30 an hour for him.
** The exception being when he finds [[{{Rule34}} questionable pictures]] of himself.
* MummyWrap: A Cofagricus pulls an accidental version of this on Gardevoir.
* MythologyGag: Roll being in charge of the hospital is a reference to the instruction manual of VideoGame/TatsunokoVsCapcom which stated Roll's dream was to one day open a hospital.
** A second nod to the game comes when her bio mentions beating [[Videogame/{{Okami}} dark gods]] to death with a broom.
* NonSequiturThud: Black Mage sings ''TheBalladOfBilboBaggins'' while full of tranquilizers.
** Gardevoir, meanwhile, sings the theme to the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}: Black and White'' anime after tumbling over.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: VideoGame/McPixel is represented with his actual game sprite instead of being drawn.
* OhMyGods: Gardevious swears on the name of Arceus.
* OpeningNarration: The first comic has a narration which explains the background and premise that turns out to be Roll reading aloud a flyer for the titular business.
* PaintingTheMedium:
** In the ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} parody, Gardevoir's speech is in Peanuts font.
** The ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest'' narrator, in a sense; even though it's still the same 8-bit text box, the characters can "hear" it and hold a conversation.
** After mentioning an "art style change", Black Mage and Roll switch from one artist's style to another.
* ParentalFavoritism: Not literally but Chansey accuses Roll of this when Gardevoir got a better sweater than her.
--> '''Chansey:''' Well, I guess we know who mom's favorite is.
* PokemonSpeak: Averted by Gardevoir who speaks plain English and played straight, though translated, by every other Pokémon. This is parodied when White Mage and Black Mage need to speak to Chansey, complete with translation boxes.
* PunBasedTitle: Most of the comics have one to the point that significant ones can be identified by the fact they don't.
* RealIsBrown: Referenced in the AltText of "Another Side: Wait, what?":
--> "Apparently, hallucinations have the same color palette as third person shooters."
* RespawningEnemies: The explanation for [[VideoGame/{{Kirby}} Waddle Dee's]] UnexplainedRecovery.
* RobotGirl: [[VideoGame/MegaMan Roll]], and she's a RidiculouslyHumanRobot to boot.
** There are a few reminders that Roll is a robot, mostly played for laughs. For instance, she recharges with a power cord attached to her neck and her eyes glow in the dark. She also performs a Blue Screen of Death upon seeing [[RuleThirtyFour Rule 34]] and attempts to hard reset herself with a magnet.
* RocketJump: [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/pl/185079 Unfortunately for the]] [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Soldier]], [[RealityEnsues Reality Ensued]].
--> '''Gardevoir''': [[StatingTheSimpleSolution Why didn't you just use the stairs?]]
--> '''Soldier''': The what now?
* SarcasmFailure: While the [[LemonyNarrator Narrator]] from the VideoGame/SpaceQuest series usually has a sarcastic reply to everything that comes up, even in the bizarre universe of Level30Psychiatry, when Nigel from SurgeonSimulator2013 tries to [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/129 give Roger]] a heart transplant (an effort involving [[NoodleImplements a hammer, then when he drops it, a fire extinguisher, and a piece of broken glass]]), even he is stumped and outright admits that he's "got nothing to say".
* SeenItAll: Chansey's reaction to some of gaming's more bizarre status effects indicates this, though it's defied by her opening InternalMonologue.
--> ''"If you think you've seen it all, you've underestimated people's ability to find new ways to hurt themselves."''
* SilentProtagonist: Link shows us how difficult this makes psychiatry.
* SlicesDicesAndMakesJulienneFries: The result of letting [[VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}} Valentine]] apply for the position of surgeon.
* SpeciesSurname: Dr. Gardevoir appears to be this, under typical naming conventions.
** LastNameBasis: If this is the case.
** Gardevoir's last name was once considered to be Sirknight, which is Gardevoir's name in Japan.
* SplitPersonality: Gardevoir has one in a mini-arc, Another Side. It seems the other side of her personality, Glasses Gardevoir, is an embodiment of her more collected and analytical side, as she is always level-headed and examining Gardevoir's problems. Gardevoir is the only one who can see or hear her.
* {{Squee}}: Roll's reaction to learning that her brother Mega Man is in VideoGame/SuperSmashBros, much to [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing the Villager's]] annoyance.
* StandardStatusEffects: Chansey has to deal with some [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/13/ pretty unstandard conditions.]]
--> '''Luigi:''' ''(Holding Mario [[VideoGame/SuperMarioRPG who has been turned into a scarecrow]])'' My brother was-a struck by the trippiest status condition in the world!
--> '''[[Videogame/KidIcarus Eggplant Pit]]:''' I respectfully refute your claim.
* StronglyWordedLetter: Gardevoir's response to a [[VideoGame/{{Half-Life}} Head Crab]] attack.
--> ''Black Mesa is going to receive another strongly worded letter about this.''
* [[TalkingAnimal Talking Pokémon]]: Dr. Gardevoir.
* TalkingToThemself: Gardevoir.
* TimePolice: Taking his original role to the logical extreme, [[VideoGame/AnimalCrossing Mr. Resseti.]]
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averting this is the basic premise but played weirdly for Gardevoir herself. [[spoiler: She tries giving herself therapy and it backfires.]]
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: Take Wilco's penchant for getting killed, add some [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros 1-up mushrooms]] and you've got this trope.
--> '''Gardevoir:''' The worst part is, when Roger comes back to life, he'll have to mop up his own shredded remains.
** This trope doesn't quite sink in well with [[VideoGame/TraumaCenter Dr. Stiles]], [[FinalDeath naturally.]]
* TraumaInn: Referenced in the tagline.
--> ''Because not all problems can be solved by sleeping at an inn.''
* TheUnintelligible: The Pyro.
* WaxingLyrical: [[http://lvl30psy.thecomicseries.com/comics/39/ It turns out Tail's theme from Sonic Adventure was a pretty accurate psychiatric assessment.]]
* WhosOnFirst: Audino gets into this routine with Chansey. Lampshaded by Gardevoir as Chansey hits her head against the wall.
--> '''Gardevoir:''' ''What is this, Vaudeville?''
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Gallade's attempt to woo Gardevoir consists of mangled flowery langauage. She is less than impressed.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Gardevoir has bright green "hair" while White Mage has an unmistakable pink. This is mocked by the [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Scout]], who takes no notice of [[RummageSaleReject his tower of ludicrous hats]].
* YourCostumeNeedsWork: Black Mage mistakes [[VideoGame/MightyNo9 Call]] for Roll in a fancy dress. Awkwardness ensues.
