[[caption-width-right:350:Monster hunter Stephanie Kane and Vampire Cheerleader Lori Thurston]]
[[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net Vampire Cheerleaders]] is an OELManga created by Adam Arnold with art by Shiei (Volumes 1&2), and Michael Shelfer (Volume 3) and licensed by SevenSeasEntertainment.

As the name implies, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin its about vampires who happen to be cheerleaders]] at their local school and mostly follows their exploits as they go about their existence while trying to avoid suspicion and trouble from human and supernatural alike.

Has a sister comic, '''Paranormal Mystery Squad''' which served as a backup feature in Volumes 1 and 2 (they were both equal length, unlike some backup features).

This series follows cryptid (i.e: monster) hunters Stephanie, Katie, and Charlotte (later joined by J.C Summerfield, a representative of PETM and Lita, the ghost of a demon who was forcibly bonded to them) who go across the U.S hunting them. However their rather bombastic and public approach has gained them infamy and the ire of [[AnimalWrongsGroup PETM]], a organization that's trying to protect the cryptids.

As of volume 3, both series have been merged under the "Vampire Cheerleaders" banner starting with a full on crossover.

Now has a [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/VampireCheerleaders character page.]]

----
!! Both Series (after the merger)
* AbortedArc: At the end of book 3, we learn that [[spoiler:Senator Worthington is an alien eating several of PETM's "humanely" captured cryptids, and Cressida has bought from him the vampires so she can avenge her sister]]. This is followed ''immediately'' by an epilogue a month later, Leonard and [[spoiler:Candace, presumed dead to this point]] attacking a [[BadGuyBar bar full of demons]] who normally kill humans by the dozen, and Leonard, who to this point had received no combat training at all, wiping the floor with them. He then asks Cressida's whereabouts despite having no obvious way of knowing who she is, let alone what she's done, and we go immediately to a still frame of a PMS rescue mission that ends the epilogue, before book 4 opens with PMS "victory pancakes" outside the flaming ruin of PETM headquarters (according to WordOfGod, ''not'' where Cressida was found). This whole [[WriterRevolt purposefully disjointed]] mess was the mangled corpse of the original fourth book, "Vampire Cheerleaders Camp It Up," which was scrapped for marketing reasons when the (more lucrative) Facebook community, already the reason the combined series carried the VC rather than originally intended PMS label, balked at PMS's prominence in the third.
* ArtShift: VampireCheerleaders went from the manga-style artwork similar to Adam's AoiHouse OELManga of volumes 1 and 2 to the current comic-style artwork beginning with volume 3 (and the merger with ParanormalMysterySquad).
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Suki, despite ''being'' a vampire in a world with a ''very'' BrokenMasquerade, is stunned to learn werewolves exist, and the corollary that this probably means the other things she (and everyone else) has been seeing on TV are real is enough of a shock to stop her in her tracks.
** Then again this is what happens when you keep your little vampire ring in a small town and don't bother to look into anything in the supernatural world.
* TheCameo: Near the beginning of vol.3, the PMS team met [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/something_they_found Agent Lisbon]] (from ''Series/TheMentalist''), while they were investigating the scene of the car crash, involving Candice.
* {{Crossover}}: Not long after meeting Aoi house, Stephanie convinces the members of the house to go to Franchise/SilentHill. As they're driving, they pass a sign that says "Silent Hill", drive off a cliff, and end up at the lighthouse from ''VideoGame/BioShock1'', where they take a submarine to Rapture. [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext As of this writing, there has yet to be any explanation for these events,]] [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/fanboy_superpowers though it may do with Sandy's alledged]] [[RealityWarper 'fanboy powers']].
* FriendsWithBenefits: [[spoiler: Leonard and Suki]], though some fans are capable of debating for hours just how much they're actually friends.
* OhCrap: a non-comedic example happens when after being arrested by the Paranormal Mystery Squad, the Vampires are then captured by Bianca Harrow, the older gorgon sister and get threatened to be eaten or [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil worse]]. [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/five_for_one_deal Suki's face is especially terrified]].
* [[PullingThemselvesTogether Pulling Herself Together]]/NotQuiteDead: Candice comes back after her apparent redeath in the beginning with a couple of stitches from the accident.
* [[RequiredSpinoffCrossover Required Spinoff Cameo]]: While they are not quite spinoffs of each other, the girls of ''ParanormalMysterySquad'' make a few cameos at different points, and the cast of VC shows up in the other book from time to time.
** Elle from ''AoiHouse'' appears in Volume 2 as a celebrity judge at the cheerleading competition. Though this might develope into more than a cameo depending on how the story progresses.
* SharedUniverse: With AoiHouse, with Stephanie first being introduced there,. With PMS being hosted on the same site as EerieCuties and MagickChicks, there is some talk of seeing if a link is plausible between them. Also with each other pre-merger.
** A couple of [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/lingonberries_-_guest_strip guest]] [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/treasure_it_always_-_guest_strip comics]] by Adam for ''Eerie Cuties'' were set in a flashback focusing on Layla and Steph as kids. Turns out it was Layla that gave Steph her hairpin saying that they (her and Steph's hairpins) come in pairs. The two strips close with Steph in the present day wondering what Layla was up to at the moment. More recently, Steph is shown talking on the phone with Maria Delacroix, the (vampiric and biological) mother of Layla about the vampires she was currently dealing with.
** All of the main cast of VampireCheerleaders made at least one appearance in Paranormal Mystery Squad pre-merger. Lori and Lesly [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/epilogue_1 here]], Heather [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/bathroom_encounter here,]] and finally Suki and Zoey [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/halloween_bashing here.]]
** The third story arc (which officially combines the two series) had Steph actually calling Maria Delacroix (Layla and Nina's mother) to get information about Lori, revealing Steph still keeps close ties with the Delacroix clan. Tiffany Winters also gets a mention and Layla, Nina and Blair make a brief appearance as well.
* ShoutOut: Now [[ShoutOut/VampireCheerleaders with a page!]]
* TokenEvilTeammate: After [[spoiler:Lita is bonded to Katie]] at the end of PMS, she becomes a de facto member of the team.

!! ''Vampire Cheerleaders'' provides the following tropes (Vol 1 and 2)

* AllWomenAreLustful: Of course, most of the Cheerleaders aren't exactly celibate.
* [[AlphaBitch Alpha Bitches]]: The snooty cheerleading team the girls go up against. Not a few minutes into checking into the competition, they quickly start dissing the protagonists. The rivalry only worsens as the story arc goes on.
* BareYourMidriff: Part of the standard cheerleader's uniform for the current year.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Joked about InUniverse with Suki and Zoe
--> '''Heather:''' They're always like this, aren't they?\\
'''Lesley:''' Constantly. LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.\\
'''Suki & Zoe: WE ARE NOT!!!'''\\
'''Lori:''' Dammit, will you two lovebirds just freaking scissor and get it over with? '''Gawd!'''
** [[spoiler:Finally comes to pass in volume 4.]]
* ChainedToABed: Lori ends up like this after being paralyzed by the GorgeousGorgon.
* CompulsorySchoolAge: Subverted. [[spoiler:Lori has been returning to school every 20 years or so since [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/memory_lane at least 1892]]of her own volition, apparently in a quest for the perfect senior year.]]
* CosplayOtakuGirl: Stephanie and Charlotte, taking on the outfits of Samus Aran and Vanille to snap Leonard out of his "thrall" status.
** [[spoiler: Katie does a 'Slave Leia' Cosplay to try to outdo them both.]]
*** [[spoiler: And she succeeds.]]
* {{Crossover}}: In the first volume, characters from each comic appeared in some scenes of the other, and events of Volume 2 leaked into the other story. As of Volume 3, a full crossover occurs leading to the merger of titles.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Cheerleader uniforms typically default to this anyway, but the Bakerstown uniform is a bit brief by high school standards.
* DevilInPlainSight: The Vampires of Bakertown High, who masquerade as the school's cheerleading team and student council.
* DistressedDamsel: Lori's abduction is the center of the second volume of VC.]
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?: You could easily replace the word "Vampire" with "Spoiled, Entitled Brat" and you honestly couldn't tell the difference.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* {{Fanservice}}:
** Lets see, teenaged vampire cheerleaders who run around in their uniforms, bikini's and other outfits. Oh, and have a backup plan like Plan BC.
** An ad parodies this by promising "[[JustForPun fang service]]."
* FanDisservice [[spoiler: Lori is tortured in a very rape like manner by the gorgon.]]
** In her first appearance [[spoiler: the gorgon is shown nude, pity she's straddling a corpse and covered in his blood at the time.]]
* ForegoneConclusion: Anyone who read Paranormal Mystery Squad knew [[spoiler: that [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/the_girl_who_would_be_lita_1 The Girl Who Would be Lita]] mini-story didn't end well for Bianca's servant girl.]]
* ForeignQueasine: [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/tsuchinoko_surprise Tribute to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.]]
* GenreSavvy: Leonard knows enough about vampire mythology to be effective. [[spoiler: Before he finally confronted the cheerleaders, he gorged himself on garlic and washes it down with listerine to make his blood downright abhorrent to vampires. When Lori tries biting him after stating his intentions to expose them his false surprise transitions into chuckling as his blood immediately makes her vomit.]]
* GorgeousGorgon: [[spoiler:Bianca Harrow turns out to be a [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/spider_to_the_fly_2 Gorgon]]]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Suki ain't much better.
* KillTheCutie: Happens to [[spoiler: Suki]] in vol.4, during the ''"Adventures in Space... and Time?!"'' arc.
** [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe Half the Girl She Used to Be]]: What a way to go. See the character sheet.
* KissOfTheVampire: Averted most of the time. When cheerleaders feed, victim feels neither pleasure, nor any negative effects other than woozy head.
* LesbianVampire: Lori on this [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/elevator_action strip]] Or at least BiTheWay, given that she seemed to have no problem with [[spoiler:exhausting Leonard]].
* NearRapeExperience: Lori's experiences in Volume 2 have this vibe, possibly going past 'near'.
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler:How Lori kills Bianca this way. Anti-climatic perhaps, but satisfying.]]
* NoKillLikeOverkill: Done in Vol.4, when [[spoiler: Lita]] ends up the target of a group of marauding invaders, who ambush her while she's putting on a show at her interstellar amusement park. [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/anti-spectre_karthos_shells Seen here.]]
* NoodleIncident: WordOfGod has no intention of explaining what [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/shocking_surprise Suki is talking about here.]]
* OhCrap: [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/paralyzed When Lori realizes that Bianca has paralyzed her.]]
** [[spoiler: It happens earlier to an ancient Roman vampire with the same woman as seen [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/no_use_resisting here]].]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: Only Lori believe it or not as the other girls were apparently only changed after meeting her in their own high school years. Lori herself is 138 years old assuming she was 18 when she was bitten. The evidence being that [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/memory_lane her collection of high school graduation tassels]] has two '92s in them. One of them is obviously from 1992, but by having two means the second one must be from 1892. Don't let the page's status as a guest comic fool you. [[{{SPRINGIETTE}} Shouri]] was given a list of specific elements that needed to be in the page.
** After the merger, though, there's a time travel arc where some of the girls have taken TheSlowPath and look no older.
* TheOneGuy: Leonard
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: They can get by with just two pints of blood a day meaning they don't have to fully drain their victim. They can also move around in the daylight though they admit its not good for their undead skin. And have to tan normally to keep up appearances. Hypnotizing someone is also called "Glamoring".
* PainfulRhyme: At the first big game, the cheerleaders' cheer rhymes "fly" with "vic-to-rye".
* RapunzelHair: Lori. [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/fourth_quarter_1 It appears to be down to her ankles.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: A given in vampire fiction. [[spoiler:Lori has been posing as her own daughter to return to high school every twenty years since [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/memory_lane at least 1892.]]]]
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/older_than_i_look here]]. It's even in the strip title.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: While it is [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/deep_deep_trouble_1 black and white, close enough.]]
* RetCon: Heather has apparently been given one regarding the events of her being turned. [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/i_had_a_choice Heather tells Leonard that being turned was her own choice in this strip.]] [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/tryouts_8 The strip showing her get turned as well as her initial confusion on waking up as a vampire contradicts the fact that Heather claims the choice was hers.]]
* SassyBlackWoman: Zoe seems to be off to a good start.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: The rival teams does this to the Bats squad in retaliation for conning them out of their training area.
* SeriousBusiness: See CompulsorySchoolAge, above.
* ThemeNaming: Adam loves [[http://www.pixietrixcomix.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2531 using DC (especially Batman) and other pop culture based names]].
* TimeForPlanB: Or should I say, '[[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/half-time_5 Plan BC]]': [[spoiler:Booty Call]].
* TitleDrop: Featured in both titles in Volumes 1 & 2.
* TookALevelInBadass: Leonard was pretty clearly your factory standard geek, starting out. However ''the minute'' he realizes his best friend/prospective love interest has been turned into a vampire (which he actually realized was happening ''before she was Turned''), he ''immediately'' levels up to CrazyPrepared BadassLongcoat VampireHunter.
** BadassDecay: Unfortunately [[spoiler: when the girls turn their feminine wiles on him, he turns to putty in an instant. Come next arc, he following along like a puppy and doing their chores for them. Granted the girls are treating him nicely and all albeit in a ButtMonkey sort of way. Least Heather isn't too hard on him.]]
*** [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/leonard_comes_prepared It seems that this level was not really lost forever, after all]]
* TranshumanTreachery: What happens to Heather who is described as very sweet when she was a human.
** Might be subverted, as she seems to act like a vampire fangirl afterwards. And, her parents do reveal some hidden issues.
** Given her recent actions and what happened to the Bakertown football team it's more like this trope is being played mostly straight.
* UnsoundEffect: [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/lori_vs_bianca_1 RUSH]]
* UnusualEuphemism: You were "double-clicking your mouse," weren't you?
* [[VampiresAreSexGods Vampires are Sex Goddesses:]] [[spoiler: [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/half-time_6 Leonard probably thinks so at this point.]]]]
* VanityLicensePlate: "BITEME" on Lori's car.
* {{Villain Protagonist}}s
* VivaLasVegas: The setting of the second arc.
* WhatTheHellHero: Lori's reaction to [[spoiler: Heather draining the entire football team the night before the homecoming game]] is this trope on steroids.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: {{Word of god}} says one of the earliest concepts for Vampire Cheerleaders was more in line with your typical harem series, but with vampires.
** In addition, the original plan was for the merger to be into the PMS title, while keeping the VC title for side stories featuring them. But, the readership of Vampire Cheerleaders was significantly higher, necessitating a change of plan.

!! Paranormal Mystery Squad has the following tropes (Vol 1 and 2)

* ADateWithRosiePalms: All but outright stated to be what Katie was doing [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/it_just_happened here.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Charlotte has her moments. Mostly when she's fumbling spells or referencing some old show.
* AllMythsAreTrue: In addition to classics like vampires and werewolves, there are such things as Native American [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deer_Woman Deer Women]], Phoenixes, {{Chupacabra}} and [[spoiler: what appears to be Mothman]].
* AllWomenAreLustful: In [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/wheres_the_beef]]
** Lita also show signs of this
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Steph sees her teen sister as this to a degree.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: Played straight in the online and e-book editions of Volume 2, but averted in the hard copy edition, at least above the waist.
** Suki almost has a wardrobe malfunction after [[spoiler: getting hit by PKThunder]]
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: Charlotte ]] during the [[spoiler: [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/once_bitten big Prom night battle. ]]]] It may be a single incident, rather than prolonged torture... But ''look into her eyes on the next page!'' She's heading for [[spoiler: KillTheCutie]], she knows it, and she can't do a thing to stop it.
* BreakingTheBonds: [[spoiler:By pissed off wolfed up Katie.]]
* CassandraTruth: Despite raising some valid points about how vampires could be disguising themselves as highschoolers, JC and Char continue to dismiss Steph's suspicions.
* ColossusClimb: [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/executive_order Against K'aannl'ngua]]
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Charlotte is rescued virtually unharmed from a fully engulfed wicker man.
** [[spoiler: Katie's tail isn't so lucky]]
* {{Crossover}}: See Shared Universe.
* CuteMonsterGirl: Katie. The Deer Woman at the beginning of Volume 1 wasn't bad looking either.
* [[CuteWitch Cute Wiccan]]: Charlotte.
* DarkIsNotEvil: The Paranormal Mystery Squad consists of a {{Goth}}, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Werewolf]], [[CuteWitch Wiccan]] and {{Dhampyr}} and they have a bat as the TeamPet.
* DescriptionCut: At a very public trial, the judge gives the Squad 2,000 hours of community service as punishment for various crimes. He then asks if Steph if she has anything else to say, and she clicks off the TV, since it was actually a recording of the trial.
-->'''J.C.:''' I can't believe you ''said'' that.
-->'''Steph:''' He deserved it.
-->'''J.C.:''' Yeah, but he ''doubled'' our hours!
* {{Destructive Savior}}s
* DevilInPlainSight: The Vampires of Bakertown High, who masquerade as the school's cheerleading team and student council.
* {{Dhampyr}}: J.C. Summerfield
* DistressedDamsel: Katie gets kidnapped by Theo and has her chained to a bed so that [[NearRapeExperience he can have his way with her]]. [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Subverted:]] She manages to defend herself and knock him out by the time the rescue arrives.]]
* EldritchAbomination: [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/the_great_one_comes this guy]]
* ExpressiveAccessory: Steph's hairpin is the sister to [[EerieCuties Layla Delacroix's]].
* EyeScream:[[spoiler: [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/it_just_got_real Stephanie stabbed one of K'AAN'NGUA's Eyes]]]]
* FanConvention: The Squad has to do community service in the form of an appearce at ''[=ParaCon=]'', which are full of people who consider the crew as evil hunters.
* FantasticRacism: Steph's attitude towards all 'cryptids'. Then her sister became one.
* FiveManBand
** TheHero: Stephanie
** TheLancer: Katie
** TheSmartGuy: J.C
** TheBigGuy: Shared between Katie and J.C as they both provide the strength in the group.
** TheChick: Charlotte
** TeamPet: Babs
** TokenEvilTeammate: Lita
* FunWithAcronyms: [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/no_guys_allowed It is no accident that they are known as ‘’PMS’’.]]
* GagPenis: Used to test if [[spoiler:[[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/wheres_the_beef certain]] feelings [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/wheres_the_beef still cause Katie to change into her werewolf form.]]]]
* {{Goth}}: Stephanie.
* HauledBeforeASenateSubcommittee: At the beginning of Volume 2.
* IdiotHair: Katie has one sticking up in the back. Reflects her tendancy to act without thinking.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Just short of a fight with [[spoiler:[[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/fight_it Katie as she goes through her first change.]]]]
* {{Jerkass}}: Steph who's always so quick to point out someone else's flaws.
* JustForPun
-->'''Katie:''' And I'm Yiffing Mad!
* MarkOfTheSupernatural: Charlotte has heterochromia with [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/one_blue_one_green one blue and one green]]. There are hints that this is a hallmark of her magical affinity.
* MercyKill: How Steph views slaying monsters that were born human. [[spoiler:She initially plans to do this with her sister, but is talked down by JC and Charlotte.]]
* [[AnimalWrongsGroup Monster Wrongs Group]]: Steph finds herself butting heads with PETM (People for the Ethical Treatment of Monsters), who demand that ‘cryptids’ be captured alive and unharmed.
** A notable subversion (especially when compared to PETA) is that PETM are well aware cryptids are dangerous and even have standard issue tasers. As Summerfield put it, they're naive, not stupid.
** O'Keefe takes the entire thing to ridiculous extremes, such as refusing to let the army bomb an "innocent cryptid" who mind-controlled half the county (there are good reasons not to drop a bomb on a bunch of people, but ''that isn't one of them'') and later [[spoiler:gets the president to declare a {{Kaiju}} that's about to destroy the city and possibly the world an endangered species, forbidding the military from attacking. Well, the Squad is forbidden too, but they ignore it]].
* NearRapeExperience: The reason Mr. Campbell summoned the team to his farm not to investigate, but [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/here_for_only_one_reason to be breeding stock for his son.]] [[spoiler:The climax of volume one begins when the son kidnaps Katie in order to try again.]]
* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted. Katie seems to delight in using her teenaged PMS as an excuse to [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/fine_whatever_pout ignore diplomacy]] (and propriety).
** It later becomes a plot point [[spoiler: as the now [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]] Katie ends up being in heat as a result.]]
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: O'Keefe has the President order Briggs to stand down his forces because it would violate Congressional law to attack K'aannl'ngua, an endangered Cryptid species. [[CavalryRefusal The military then pulls out, allowing the demon to wreck Las Vegas.]]
* OffWithHisHead: Steph is [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/i_am_not_a_waitress quite]] [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/this_ends_now effective]] with that sword.
* OhCrap: Everyone's reaction to Mr. Campbell going openly hostile, but especially [[http://www.paranormalmysterysquad.com/strips-pms/eww_gross Katie when Theo changes.]]
** A more comic version when the sea monster Steph just speared swam off rapidly. [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/the_perfect_hunter "Oh Frak...!"]] [[UnsoundEffect Yank!]]
* ParentalAbandonment: Stephanie and Katie’s parents were killed about a year before the story starts (and after Steph’s appearance in Aoi House).
* ParanormalInvestigation
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler:The general put in charge the incident in Volume 2 comes off sympathetic to the PMS crew, and most definitely does not like O'Keefe's presence and interference.]]
** [[spoiler:When they kill the {{Kaiju}} rampaging around Vegas (which O'Keefe got named an endangered species), he gets them issued a full pardon, and the 4,000 hours of community service fully commuted]].
* [[HeWhoFightsMonsters She Who Fights Monsters]]: Steph’s hatred of cryptids has some unfortunate levels.
** She's mellowed out considerably since the beginning though. When [[EerieCuties Maria]] expresses her concerns about Steph's bloodthirsty history she admits that she was in a pretty dark place at the start of the series as her parents had only just died.
* SpitTake: Recently during the VC/PMS crossover, Katie has one over TheReveal that [[http://www.vampirecheerleaders.net/strips-vc/a_little_office_pool O'Keefe is a lesbian.]]
* ThemeNaming: Many Franchise/{{Batman}} (and the wider {{DCU}}) references are made in the [[http://www.pixietrixcomix.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2531 names for the various characters]].
* TheOneGuy: J.C. Summerfeild
* TheUnfairSex: Steph as per most of her jerkass tendencies, for example she blames the whole [[spoiler: Katie turning into a werewolf]]incident on J.C. when really Katie had wandered off on her own. J.C, despite being a nice guy, thankfully isn't a doormat and more then willing to call her out on this.
* UnusualEuphemism: You were "double-clicking your mouse," weren't you?
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: "Cryptoslaughter" has only recently been made ''illegal'', and appears to remain a civil offense.
* WholeCostumeReference: After being defeated by Lita in Volume 2, Char finds herself dressed up as {{Zatanna}}, [[http://www.pixietrixcomix.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=12368&p=367964#p367952 Steph as Alice from the Resident Evil: Extinction and Katie as Claire from Resident Evil: Afterlife.]]
* VanHelsingHateCrime: Steph who believes ''all'' cryptids are evil roughly stemming what happened to her parents. [[spoiler: Things gets complicated when her sister is turned into a werewolf and the newest member of their team is revealed to be a Dhampyr]].
