* 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.
* 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).
* CrackPairing: Vincent mentioned about his popular pairing with Yuffie to her. Yuffie's not amused.
* DiscreditedMeme: Done twice so far, for 'Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!' and 'YouShallNotPass'. In both cases, Cloud forbids the use of the line.
* HarsherInHindsight: ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' came out years before the terrorist attack on New York on Sept. 11, 2001: although neither the early AVALANCHE sabotage of the Sector 1 reactor, nor the later Shinra-engineered collapse of Sector 7 were treated as lightly as they were in the game.
** In a much later strip in the Nibelheim mountains, Vincent mentions that an earlier draft of the game would have taken place in a version of New York. When Barrett starts to bring up the implications that would ''now'' be raised by a game portraying a terrorist cell in New York, Cloud [[BreakingTheFourthWall looks extremely concerned]] and ''very pointedly'' [[DudeNotFunny changes the subject.]]
* MemeticSexGod: Cloud. So far it's been Jessie, Tifa, Aeris, Priscilla, Ester... even Yuffie has shown some interest.
** Later, Cloud claims that EVERYONE has a crush on Tifa. This includes Rude, who expresses interest in her ("I mean, have you SEEN that rack?") even while talking about how things are getting serious with his girlfriend.
* {{Moe}}: Both main female leads are more adorable than their game counterparts.
* ShipTease: Cloud and Tifa get a lot of this. Aeris and Cloud have some moments too, but they're played for pathos since both characters have 'read the script'.
* TheWoobie: Shera.
