''Nip And Tuck'' is one of Creator/RalphHayesJr's webcomics (''GoblinHollow'' and ''Webcomic/TalesOfTheQuestor'' are among his others).

The main focus is on Nip and Tuck Todd, two fox brothers of the somewhat loopy Malarky County, located somewhere (judging by the cast's accents) in the [[DeepSouth southern USA]]. Throughout the series, the brothers get mixed up in various hijinx, including babysitting a pair of rival budding evil geniuses, accidentally entering Tuck's girlfriend into a porno photoshoot, helping a rookie journalist try to prove the existence of the local lake monster to the world, training a junior boxer to fight the town bully, and even MST-ing Nip's movies.

The strip is on indefinite hiatus (though the characters have been transplanted to ''GoblinHollow'' for the time being), but the archives are still available.

!!This comic provides examples of:

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Gus the turtle, who owns the military surplus store. (Turtles are literally the only species in any of the author's comics to get this trope, which is understandable given how much a turtle's shell covers and how hard it is to cover.)
* AllNaturalSnakeOil
* AsleepForDays: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00613.html The effect of the medicine]].
* AuthorTract: Taken to great lengths with various attacks on environmentalism, feminism and liberalism in general right from the first couple of pages (see Straw Character section below).
** And despite Nip and Tuck largely being irresponsible gun-loving pyromaniacs, Southerners are [[StrawmanHasAPoint DEFINITELY NOT]] [[StrawmanNewsMedia as portrayed in the media.]]
* BeautifulAllAlong: Played straight with Thelma [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00544.html here]], with help from Tuck. Then again, Tuck admits that he had feelings for Thelma from the very beginning and had no idea how to deal with those emotions.
** A bit with Zelda Porcupine as well.
* BarefootCartoonAnimals: Most of Malarkey County, though Gus Guthrie and Gilly are usually TheOnesWhoWearShoes. (Plus occasional guest characters, such as that crazy cat at the bus station.)
* TheBechdelTest: Passed on occasion, especially during the all-female party arc.
* BrainBleach: Nip learns to take care when admiring photos from a time before you were born.
* BulletTime: Parodied once [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00585.html here]].
* ButtMonkey: Gilly Gopher.
* CatsHaveNineLives: And according to Tuck, their [[FurryConfusion pet]] cat is running up credit on some more.
* TheCavalry: Nip is tied up and about to be beaten by a bunch of Gus's friends when the [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00830.html Ladies Division of the Indy Wrestling Foundation]], whom he'd called earlier, show up.
* ChessMaster: [[ObfuscatingStupidity Nip Todd]] and [[{{Trickster}} Eugene Possum]] have shades of this. Most notably Nip's plots to humiliate Gus, Charlie, and Michael Moby.
* ComedicSociopathy: Whether it's knocking Gilly out with a board or electrocuting a reporter, this is pretty common. Slightly subverted, in that Tuck doesn't approve of such methods.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Lampshaded [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00634.html here]] during a ShowWithinAShow.
* CoolPeopleRebelAgainstAuthority: Subverted by ''Rebel Cry''.
* CreepyChild: Tagger on occasion.
* CuriousAsAMonkey: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00575.html Hortense's niece]]
* DepartmentOfChildDisservices: Tagger's family after their son aces an aptitude test. [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00076.html Oh, the torture]].
-->'''Tuck:''' Well, I s'pose you're learning all sorts o' new things...
-->'''Tagger:''' Yeah. I learned tofu gives you th' scoots.
* {{Determinator}}: Bandit during a boxing match against a pig a ''lot'' bigger than him. He gets beaten to a pulp and still refuses to drop for a while.
** Gilly Gopher is also one. While others would have realized long ago that Malarkey County isn't too kind to {{Know Nothing Know It All}}s, he just keeps on trying to convince his neighbors he has the right idea.
* DistressedDamsel: Subverted when Thelma Possum, trapped in a lousy contract with a porn studio, becomes a professional wrestler to pay it off (surprising the heck out of poor Tuck's rescue party). Averted when Zelda Porcupine, confronted by a studio-barging Gilly Gopher, turns him into a pincushion. And lampshaded to a fare-thee-well when Nip winds up rescuing overly aggressive, dyed-in-the-scales, capital-F Feminist Hortense from a guy she punched in the breadbasket! (She takes it with all the "grace" you'd expect, too.) See Values Dissonance; as noted, female characters in this strip aren't likely to be the fluttery, useless type.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Averted. Female characters who abuse male characters in this strip will receive a talking-to at least, a physical retribution at worst. Never subverted, though; males who abuse females get just as much of a smackdown.
* DramaticWind: Wind, leaf blower, same diff...
* DueToTheDead: The admiral in the ''Rebel Cry'' arc.
* TheEmpire: In Nip's second movie.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Hortense rants about this.

* FunnyForeigner: Both [[RussianGuySuffersMost Mikhail]] and Schlep.
* FunetikAksent: Skip this comic, especially the early years, if you have no patience for these.

* GloryHound: Nip's friend, Charlie. Literally.
* {{Gonk}}: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00278.html THIS]] [[NoNameGiven guy.]]

* GoshDangItToHeck: Subverted on maybe [[SymbolSwearing one or two occasions]], both times, surprisingly, by Nip Todd.
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: In ''Rebel Cry''. Carries over to a non-space version outside the film.
* GroinAttack: Thelma calls it the Hickory Nut Crunch. It appears as painful as it sounds, but hey, the guy did KickTheDog first.

* HeroicBSOD: Both Todd brothers tend to do this when sexually aroused.

--> Zelda's friend and assistant, Charlotte: "You put his clothes back on right this minute, young lady!---"

* InelegantBlubbering: Tuck [[spoiler:after seeing Thelma in a bikini]].
* InTheBlood: Nip and Tuck seem to get their accident-prone nature from their old man.
* ISeeThemToo: Captain Walker's sidekick in '''Rebel Cry''' at [[spoiler:the memorial]].

** Charlie Bengal.
* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler: "Sweet Momma" Smith in the "Model Search / Finding Thelma" story arc.]]
** Subverted in the case of Gus Gunthrie, the town bully.

* NonMammalianHair: Subverted with Hortence the lizard, who wears a wig.
* NonMammalMammaries: Played straight for the most part, but averted for Hortence the lizard.
* NoOSHACompliance: Anything that Nip does that causes an explosion, but being a stuntman helps.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: Nip's character in ''Rebel Cry'' fakes his own death]]
* NotSoDifferent: There was a period of comic strips early in the series' run, titled [[TakeThat Redneck Rebuttal]], that pointed out that many redneck stereotypes can also be applied to numerous Democrats, yuppies, city slickers, Hollywood elites....
** The "family tree not branching" joke was applied to European Royalty. [[RoyallyScrewedUp The Hapsburgs]] come to mind.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Nip, despite acting like a moron with no sense of self preservation, ends up outsmarting quite a few people and delivering a few of the {{Aesop}}s. Although, in a way, this isn't completely his fault, as outsiders often assume he is an idiot based on his accent and looks.
* OddShapedPanel: For dreams and flashbacks.
* PetTheDog: The admiral in ''Rebel Cry'' laughs admiringly at the hero's victory, right in front of his boss.
* PretentiousLatinMotto: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00244.html Parodied]] by Nip's stuntman school.
* RageAgainstTheAuthor: Not rage so much as confusion, but Bandit Ringtail's owner was somewhat let down by the way that his comic commission ended (no closure, didn't adhere to his script).
* ReasonYouSuckSpeech: Zelda calling Michael Moby out on his so-called status quo.
* RealityEnsues: The opening of ''Rebel Cry''. Also Tuck on occasion.
* RealityIsUnrealistic: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00599.html The solemn importance of trying to avoid this.]]
* RedOniBlueOni: The title characters, Nip and Tuck. While they're twin brothers, Nip is the rambunctious, loud one and Tuck is the cool, cynical one.
* RightBehindMe: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00811.html Comic 811]]. Lampshaded on the same page, and then the lampshading gets lampshaded.
* RoyalBlood: The first Redneck Rebuttal. "If your family tree doesn't fork..."
* RoyalBrat: The chairwoman in ''Rebel Cry''.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: In-universe with the Michael Moby arc. Nip was having some objections with the script that was given because Moby DidntDoTheResearch. The [[JerkAss pot-bellied, potty-mouthed producer]] calls in his lawyer, [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00605.html Willard]], a pine marten...
** ... who, after Moby gets his long due comeuppance, faces '''''[[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00618.html THE STUDIO'S]] [[ThreateningShark LAWYERS]].'''''
* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale: Lampshaded by the admiral in ''Rebel Cry''.
* ShoutOut: To ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' and ''RockyHorrorPictureShow'', among others.
* ShowWithinAShow: Nip's movies.
* ShrinkingViolet: Zelda at first, to an almost painful degree. She gets better.
* SickeninglySweethearts: Thelma and Tuck become this trope occasionally.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: The author is more than willing to let a female character catch the brunt of a gag.
* SnipeHunt: Tagger manages to send the entire protest bothering their Pioneer Days festival on one.
* SomethingAboutARose: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00105.html This]] occurs when the Todd's bull, Thunder, learns he is going to be used as a stud. [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00866.html And again]] when Nip is picking up Zelda for their date.
* SouthernFriedGenius: While Nip is not entirely an idiot, in early strips he is quite reckless; on the other hand, Tuck is definitely displaying this trope.
* SpeechbubblesInterruption: Mrs. Rabbit when Mr. Rabbit starts getting too detailed about why they have so many younguns.
* SplashOfColor: The ''Rebel Cry'' arc uses this.
* {{Squee}}: Nip's FanGirl.
* StrawFeminist: Hortense, although she's otherwise [[FreudianExcuse depicted sympathetically.]]
* [[StrawCharacter Straw Liberal]]: Gilly, the Todds' next-door neighbor.
* TechnoBabble: Lampshaded in the ''Rebel Cry'' arc.
* TelevisionIsTryingToKillUs: [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00599.html And Nip knows it.]]
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: TheEmpire in ''Rebel Cry''.
* ThroughHisStomach: The county spinsters attempt to hook Corporal Bo [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00372.html this way.]]
* {{Trickster}}: Eugene and Tagger. What's worse is that they're bitter rivals.
* TooDumbToLive: Nip does things such as [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00005.html make ball lightning in a microwave]] and [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00096.html try stunts out of the ''{{Jackass}}'' movies]]. He ends up [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00344.html graduating from stuntman school]] so he can make these moments into a career.
* TurnTheOtherFist: Tuck gets in a Turn the Other Foot KICK [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00764.html here....]] with some rather [[RealityEnsues painful consequences]].
* UnderdogsNeverLose: Subverted during the commissioned Bandit story arc, where the plucky underdog got creamed.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: Thelma, to Tuck.
* VisibleSilence: On occasion.
* WallOfBlather: Thelma in the beauty contest arc.
* WatchingTroyBurn: Captain Walker in the ''Rebel Cry'' arc.
* WeNeedADistraction / WildGooseChase: Nip in the Bandit vs. Gus arc.
* WriterOnBoard: And proud of it. Generally avoids an Author Filibuster, if only by inches.
* WhatIsEvil: Subverted by Nip early on, simply by taking it to a logical conclusion.
* WhatTheHellHero: After Bandit's savage beating by Gus in a boxing match, his idol, Sierra, comes to visit him in the hospital wing. She pulls on his nose briefly, then gives him a scathing speech about how stupid the situation was, saying that not only did Bandit get into a fight unnecessarily, he also let his temper get the best of him and nearly got himself killed challenging a guy twice his height and weight to defend the honor of someone he'd never met in person. While Bandit cringes from this, the scene turns out to be kind of sweet, since Sierra then kisses him on the cheek for the thought.
** Also when Hortense blasts Tuck for forcing Thelma into a beauty contest.
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Malarky County is somewhere in the DeepSouth. Or possibly Texas, judging from a skit following Gilly's rant and unsuccessful attempts to save face. They get some strong winters, but that's not out of the question in Appalachia.
* WretchedHive: The Rusty Bucket, hangout of Gus Gunthrie and his equally nasty friends.
** Malarkey County was thought of as this in the early strips, no thanks to the StrawmanNewsMedia.
