* AdaptationDisplacement: ''[[http://www.truthandbeautybombs.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=4997&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 Silent Garfield]]'' - Garfield doesn't have his thought bubbles. ''[[http://juannavarro.wordpress.com/2007/12/21/realfield-like-lasagna-too/ Realfield]]'' - Garfield is realistically drawn ''and'' doesn't have the thought bubbles. Both of these predate ''Webcomic/GarfieldMinusGarfield'' but the latter is now much more well known.
** And now the exact opposite: [[http://garfieldminusjon.tumblr.com Just Garfield]].
* BizarroEpisode: [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/post/89998482477/g-g-the-book-g-g-on-facebook-g-g-on-twitter This strip]] featuring Jon dressed as a cowboy offering inanimate objects for breakfast, then walks away from an upside down room with a beak, tail feathers, and bird legs.
* SugarWiki/CrowningMomentOfAwesome: The original ''Garfield'' creator approving of the edits (as opposed to sending in the lawyers) is one thing; him writing the foreword to a book dedicated to those edits is simply unbelieveable. Even more amazing is said creator ''joining in on the edits''.
* HilariousInHindsight: Garfield asking [[http://garfield.com/comic/1995-09-28 when did Jon start talking to himself]] in 1995 would lead to ''Garfield Minus Garfield'' being created in 2008. In ''Garfield Minus Garfield'', Jon would talk to himself to try coping with his loneliness and depression.
* NightmareFuel: With [[ItMakesSenseInContext the general context removed]], some strips can cross into this territory. [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/post/43372730 This]] one in particular.
* TearJerker: Some examples:
** [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/post/28199766 This]] makes it quite clear that Jon isn't right in the head.
** [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/post/28552011 Here]], Jon begins showing signs of being a StrawNihilist.
** [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/post/29390971 Sometimes]]...
** In [[http://garfieldminusgarfield.net/day/2013/01/08/ this one]], Jon realizes that no-one will mourn his death.
