* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Subverted with [[ScaryBlackMan Barret]]. He tends to call Cloud "whitey" and "honky", but ''only'' Cloud.
** Though he later calls Dyne a "cracker" after it's become clear just how AxCrazy he's become since they last met.
* AccidentalInnuendo: When climbing the stairs up Shinra Tower, Barret complains that they should've gone in through the front. Leads into a HehHehYouSaidX moment immediately after.
-->'''Tifa:''' "Going in through the back is better, trust me."
* ArchiveBinge: The series began on on May 13, 2010 and is currently over 400 pages long.
* AwesomeArt: {{Animesque}} and cartoony as it is, the comic can look pretty when it wants to.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** Played with - mostly because they're in the source material. There are some naked people aboard a Midgar train that seem arbitrary, but it's revealed in the next strip that Biggs and Jessie stole their outfit (including the mustache).
** After Yuffie defeats her father, the two start laughing and turn into mantis-people. The next strip has Yuffie now back to normal, and agreeing with the narration to never mention what just happened again.
* CrackPairing: Vincent mentioned about his popular pairing with Yuffie to her. Yuffie's not amused.
* {{Moe}}: Both main female leads are more adorable than their game counterparts.
* TheScrappy: Cait Sith. Before a character's name is revealed, their dialogue boxes use (usually comical) descriptors instead. Cait Sith's include "Random Pointless Character", "Annoying Pointless Character", "Harbinger of Misfortune", and "God's Mistake".
* TearJerker: When Cloud picks up the injured Meager Troop and the latter exclaims "I couldn't... save her..." Especially because [[spoiler: Meager Troop is the ''real'' Cloud and it is him lamenting the fact that he couldn't protect his mother against Sephiroth, even though he clearly tried his best]].
* TheWoobie: Shera.
