* BigLippedAlligatorMoment : Immediately after the World Split, [[ThePowerpuffGirls Him]] and [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko]] out of nowhere engage in a musical battle/dance-off to the tune of Lady Gaga's 'Telephone'.
* CrackPairing / CrossoverShip: See ShipTease.
** Also, [[{{Robotomy}} Thrasher]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Haineko]].
** [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck Megavolt]] and [[VideoGame/BioShock2 Eleanor Lamb]].
** [[FrankenFran Fran Madaraki]] and [[Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors Audrey II]].
** And now [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko Warner]] and Ion Spark, an original superhero character. [[InterspeciesRomance Did we mention she's human?]]
** Purely in the crack community, [[RegularShow Madeline]] [[GenderBender and]] [[LesYay Ruby]].
** Again, in the crack community, random number memes have taken a liking to pairing [[HannaIsNotABoysName Veser]] and, of all people, [[PowerpuffGirls Him]].
** [[VideoGame/GhostTrick Missile]] ships himself with [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fluttershy]].
** [[Franchise/AceAttorney Ema Skye]] and [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} Wheatley]].
** [[Disney/{{Tangled}} Rapunzel]] and [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 Veetor]]. It's adorable.
** It gets really out of hand during the Wedding Event. Results include...
*** Webcomic/{{Digger}} and Elias, who were PlatonicLifePartners before the event.
*** Saft and [[WesternAnimation/AeonFlux Trevor]].
*** [[FrankenFran Veronica]] and [[DanVs Dan]].
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: InkCity TheMusical is no doubt imminent.
** [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Yakko and Wakko]]'s rendition of "Copacabana", as it applies to logs #2 and #3. And then [[{{Tropers/Kasu}} Mordecai's mun]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVkikPXs1eE actually sang it!]]'' Since "Labocabana", Yakko's mun has also done "The Ink City List Song" (somewhat in lieu of the tune of {{Music/Voltaire}}'s "The USS Make Shit Up" (this and other interpretations are much to the mun's amusement, who specifically didn't have a tune)), "Labocabana Drinking Song" (parody of "Another Irish Drinking Song"), "Smooth Vegetable" (parody of "Smooth Criminal"), "Duck Police" (to the tune of the VideoGame/DuckTales video game Moon Stage Theme), and simply "Ink City" (to the tune of "Hotel California").
** [[{{Tropers/Mayalex}} The mun for Veser (along with others)]] wrote and sang [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8i8tAr7h4w "Ink Blots"]] (parody of Ke$ha's "Tik Tok"), about Event #1.
** [[{{Tropers/ToraYakari}} Heloise's mun]] provided "Diego", a parody of LadyGaga's "Alejandro", about Heloise's conflict with Dr. Chipotle Jr.
*** Also for Heloise she's penned "Scientist!", parody of Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors's "Dentist!" [[spoiler:This becomes a bit of [[FridgeBrilliance Fridge Brilliant]] hilarity when you realize Heloise's mun also plays Audrey II, and that Orin Scrivello was also Audrey II's first victim in-canon.]]
** Misery's mun managed to turn Log #3 and Log #12 into ''musical numbers'', by giving Heloise her own VillainSong - "Hely Knows Best" - to the tune of Disney/{{Tangled}}'s "Mother Knows Best". Yeah, it's all kinds of awesome. (And then it was sung by the mun of Heloise! [[http://community.livejournal.com/labocabana/6748.html And it remained awesome]])
*** Her second Disney parody - ''Conquer The World'' - was a love duet between Dr. Chipotle Jr. and Heloise, to the tune of ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'''s "A Whole New World". Somehow, despite it's [[LyricalDissonance disturbing and gruesome lyrics]], it's still surprisingly romantic and ends [[TearJerker pretty sadly]].
** Genaleah, the game's owner and mun of many characters, gave us an Ink City version of The Dave Matthews Band's "Funny The Way It Is".
** Alice, Yuki and Kiba's mun, wrote a parody of [[RockyHorrorPictureShow Science Fiction Double Theater.]]
* FanNickname: Various character nicknames have been coined by the game, such as "Hely" for Heloise and "Chippy" for Dr. Chipotle Jr.
* FoeYay: Heloise and Lucius, in the crack community especially.
* HarsherInHindsight: Can be coupled with FridgeHorror as the characters learn more about the world they've been pulled into. Another rich source for this is when characters are PutOnABus, such as [[spoiler:Misery's mundane implying she suffered DeathByDespair following Thrasher's departure]] or [[spoiler:Fluttershy]] being injured during the World Split.
* HellIsThatNoise: During the World Split event, many... unpleasant sounds are associated with the City tearing itself apart.
* HilariousInHindsight: During the World Split, [[VideoGame/KatamariDamacy Ichigo]] is among those trapped on the colorless Ink Side. Two years later, the ''Webcomic/{{Katamari}}'' {{Webcomic}} has Ichigo play a major role in its own arc involving [[http://www.shiftylook.com/comics/katamari/the-quest-for-color disappearing colors]].
* [[ItWasHisSled It Was His Sash]]: The Mayor's sash was [[BreakingTheFourthWall stolen by a mun]].
* JerkassWoobie: Take a name, any name; they've likely been this before. If they don't make it a full time career.
* MemeticMutation: Mostly occurs in the OOC AIM chatroom, but a few include:
** [[Music/TheLonelyIsland LIKE A BOSS.]]
** [[HiveMind HIVEMIND.]]
** HO PANS
** *xfist*
** Jokes or routines reminiscent of Abbot and Costello revolving around Doctor Who. There's a bunch of them.
** Bass is Franchise/{{Batman}}. --no, Bass is [[http://i56.tinypic.com/i5uixk.jpg Pikachu.]]
** Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaace.
** [[Film/BackToTheFuture Marty FREAKIN McFly]]
* MoralEventHorizon:
** [[spoiler: Log #3 is this for Heloise.]]
** [[spoiler: What she does in Log #44 is [[UpToEleven arguably worse]].]]
** [[spoiler: And then there's Log #49.]]
* {{Squick}}: [[spoiler: How Heloise tortures Benson initially in Log #3. She basically sticks a crowbar up his slot and shoves it up into the inside of his head!]]
* TheWoobie: [[RubyGloom Mis]][[MeaningfulName ery]]
* UnfortunateImplications: When GLaDOS forcefully [[MindRape collects information]] from Starscream.
