* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Vulture]]
* LeeroyJenkins: Dizzee Jenkins has a tendency to lose [=LIMBs=] due to his recklessness, in the chapter 3 battle he apparently lost two. [[http://www.mylifeatwar.com/?p=440 It catches up to him.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Terrence "Vulture" Uzzard
* MegaCorp: Mega-Fun-Foods. It's practically in their name.
* MiniMecha: The LIMBS are too small to be called Humongous Mecha and far too big to be called power armor.
* NeverLearnedToRead: Vulture, meant he couldn't tell what was in the employee handbook [[spoiler: and it was too difficult to find his next of kin.]]
* OralFixation: Vulture usually had a piece of straw in his mouth. While going through his stuff after he died the rest of the team found a box of pre-cut "max relax" hayseeds.
* PoweredArmor: The Bulls.
** Mind you, literally powered. With a cable. From a truck.
* PrivatelyOwnedSociety: The Free Market.
* PrivateMilitaryContractors: The 1st Investment Recovery Battalion are just that.

* SpaceRomans: The main characters have distinctly southern/Texan feeling to them, from the way people talk to the cowboy hats.
** The Dhuvalians have a distinctly French feel to them, despite the comic taking place in an original world.
* SpeechBubbles: The comic seems to use differently shaped speech bubbles to indicate accents. Round for Free Market and boxy for Dhuvalian.
* WarForFunAndProfit: Averted, The 1st Investment Recovery Battalion and the other two PMC companies Mega-Fun-Foods hired are taking heavy losses that their client has needed to subsidize. Macon says it himself:
-->''[[http://www.mylifeatwar.com/?p=532 "Ugh, war. How's a man supposed to turn a profit doing this?"]]''
