* BaseBreaker: Joel Calley is this in spades. He's either a VillainSue [[TheScrappy Scrappy]], or a case of DracoInLeatherPants. In some cases, it boils down to whether one finds him awesome and/or attractive.
** Matt along the course of the webcomic. In the wake of [[spoiler:Matt's apparently willing and aware embrace of Joel's supervillainy]], the fanbase reaction charted a course for DracoInLeatherPants.
** And [[spoiler: Artie]] as the comic comes closer to its finale [[spoiler: what with him becoming more of a {{Magnificent Bastard}} than Joel could ever hope to be. Once someone who had a vibe of being a [[BrilliantButLazy good natured slacker]], attaining Melusine as his Spiritual Symbiote has brought him to the same path as our former [[VillainProtagonist 'Hero']] and only just managed to avoid being worse.]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Joel's response to hearing that the health inspector is coming is to spot a random passerby who happens to be wearing a trenchcoat and wide-brimmed hat and shoot him. His boss stares briefly, then says "The health inspector is a ''woman."'' Cue Joel shooting the first passing female.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Joel and [[spoiler:Matt]], and arguably also [[spoiler:Artie]]. When Immelmann is commissioned to draw porn of any of his characters, itís usually the former two and/or Nicole.
** Fan responses of Joel have been of a similar note, often glossing over Joel's horrific actions because he's sexy and/or because they refer to Miranda being completely at fault despite Joel's sadism and willingness to help her cause suffering. Although to be fair, [[EvilIsSexy Joel's cruelty and sadism is exactly why some people find him appealing]].
* MemeticBadass: The Baron became this in the space of [[http://concessioncomic.com/index.php?pid=20100905 a single comic]].
** Immelmann changing his sig. on [[http://forum.concessioncomic.com/ the forum]] didn't help.
-->Immy hypnotized in bondage: "Vote for The Baron" f5 "Gentlemen prefer the Baron" f5 "I want the Baron's babies." etc.
*** The signature cycles through exactly 27 different phrases. Out of these, only [[http://concessioncomic.com/baronrotate/hynoimmybaron23.png one]] isn't Baron-related.
* MoralEventHorizon: Joel Calley of definitely crosses the Moral Event Horizon during the various acts of his complicated revenge plot. Among the worst are causing a child's parents to die in a car crash and giving his friend Artie cancer in order to kill him.
** Artie himself had a moment, [[spoiler:making the oil tanker crash into the Dolphin city]]. However, it's ambiguous if he actually fully intended to do it.
* {{Narm}}: Last panel of [[http://concessioncomic.com/index.php?pid=20100831 this]] page.
** Matt's big damn speech he gives to [[spoiler:Artie]] would be much easier to take seriously if he wasn't drawn wearing bright blue bike-shorts and a skin-tight t-shirt.
* NarmCharm: Part of the comic's overall appeal.
* NightmareFuel:
** [[spoiler:Joel's psychic battles with Father Tim and Artie. And more recently, Millicent, which was even creepier.]]
** [[spoiler:Chelsie is pretty damn scary. As is Kate's reasoning behind keeping her little harem; the knowledge that some people think this is a reasonable argument is terrifying. Mercifully the author's demonstrated he doesn't think so.]]
** Follow the url in the alt text for [[http://concessioncomic.com/index.php?pid=20100924 this comic]]. Go [[http://forum.concessioncomic.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4428 here]] if you need help. If the [[spoiler: letters]] don't creep you out, [[spoiler: Miranda's infected version of the site, complete with ''drawings never on the regular site to begin with'']] will give you absolute chills.
* ShockingSwerve: [[http://concessioncomic.com/index.php?pid=20110204 Comic #374.]]
* {{Squick}}: [[PaedoHunt Chelsie's adventures]] embody this trope. Joel's tentacular psychic form is pretty disturbing as well.
** Nicole and Roland end up breaking up, and Nicole hooking up with [[ParentalIncest his own father.]] They live happily ever after. Um... yay..?
** And Matt indulges in infantilism and likes to wear diapers. In general, the webcomic is full of these sorts of moments. And they often result if you're not fond of [[AuthorAppeal a fetish that Immelmann favors]].
* SoBadItsGood
* TastesLikeDiabetes: A repeated guest comic joke shows Joel's nightmares to be a SugarBowl.
* VillainSue: Joel
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Zoe is actually a male crossdresser.
