* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Pretty much everyone, but Miles gets a special mention. His creator and fans (both hardcore and casual) take a different interpretation of him; being a JerkassWoobie who constantly receives DisproportionateRetribution; while the other side thinks he's a [[CasanovaWannabe self-absorbed]] {{JerkAss}} who's always [[CreatorsPet stealing the spotlight]].
** Rachael also gets a disturbing amount of this, usually on the forum, and usually from people who hate her and call her a selfish, heartless whore who deserves crippling injuries, life-threatening illnesses- or even death- and people who desperately want her shoehorned into a dysfunctional relationship with Miles; the latter group insists that she's actually a weak-willed {{Tsundere}} who loves [[JerkAss Jerk Asses]] and only pretends to love guys like Minos.
* BaseBreaker: Geecku. Almost immediately after her introduction, some people loved her, and others completely railed against her, arguing that she's a one note GenkiGirl whose (so far) only main trait is [[ReallyGetsAround her extensive sex life]]. Some critics also decry how her suffering no consequences for trashing Mora's kitchen is "unrealistic". Nevermind this series has never been big on realism in the first place.
* BrokenBase: Mostly aligned along specific character lines. The Taffy/Miles incident mentioned below is one, the Rachael/Mora rivalry is another, and Miles is practically one all by himself. It depends heavily in the AlternateCharacterInterpretation and mostly, that both parts of the {{Hatedom}} and {{Fandom}} tend to be equally parts FanDumb [[SeriousBusiness most of the time]].
* CanonSue: Mora to a growing number of readers. [[spoiler:Apparently she's on her way to being a GodModeSue as well, as she's essentially become completely invincible, inhumanly strong and unnaturally fortunate, her father has turned out to be some kind of powerful demonic being, it's been revealed that Digit is a "sacred spirit", the rarest and most special kind of nanozell spirit, virtually every character but Rachael agrees with everything she says and does, and she's very clearly never leaving Minos, and as we've seen with Kayin and Grace, normal people who marry Crests somehow gain immortality.]]
* CreatorsPet: Miles, as has been noted several times already, and Mora, whom Chalo has even stated no lasting misfortune will ever happen to.
** The "Learning Curves" bonus comic was apparently supposed to show that Miles actually had some bad experiences and was once a loving genuine NiceGuy in a relationship who then lost the girl and became bitter. Unfortunately, since the bad experiences weren't actually that bad, and he pretty much neglected the girl and took her for granted as a friend with benefits right from the start, for most it just served to reinforce the perception that all he had was {{Wangst}} and that he was still dodging responsibility for his own screwups.
** This trope is beginning to happen in the main comic as well. SK keeps trying to find new ways to put Miles in the spotlight and make him seem a lot nicer and more likeable than he actually is, when all he's doing is confirming the idea that Miles is nothing more than a lecherous, arrogant, somewhat delusional JerkAss, and actually causing more readers to dislike or hate Miles.
* CriticalBacklash\HypeBacklash: Miles' fans argue that most of his ostensible JerkAss moments just aren't that Jerkish; however, most of his PetTheDog moments likewise fall flat.
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=537 Comic 267]]. Nothing like a bit of lighthearted ComedicSociopathy to lighten the mood left by a rather [[CerebusSyndrome cerebusy]] arc.
** Comic 170 - [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=343 "Wardrobe Malfunction"]] - nets Miles one for his suggestion to Alejandra in the last frame.
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=113 Minos meets Sarah.]]
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=557 "You can see the aliens too?!"]]
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=651 "I'm busy being a lesbian, okay?!"]]
*** For such a serious arc, [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=661 Building an Empire can be quite funny.]]
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Many, depending on who you ask.
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=261 Mora fixing the little cow figurine]] [[{{WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic}} she broke]].
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=551 Taffy comforting Sarah]].
*** "Will you be my mommy?"
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=641 Tootsie and Alej's little party.]] [[{{VillainsOutShopping}} Too cute.]]
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=603 This]] strip, after Tiare asks Mora what she learned from this whole ordeal. Even the most cold-hearted person has to find this at least somewhat touching.
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=331 Peaceful Gesture.]] The best part is showing how Mora has developed from a [[{{JerkAss}} harsh, uncaring person who would much rather beat the crap out of someone then try to reconcile things]] to an almost TeamMom who genuinely cares for her TrueCompanions and would be willing to try and become friends with Alej again.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Miles has one of the biggest character fanbases in the comic despite his many JerkAss and flatout KickTheDog moments.
** On the forums, at least. Outside the forums, he's quite unpopular.
** While she ''does'' genuinely have her good points ([[spoiler:especially after her HeelFaceTurn]]), quite a few people insist that Alej is the "true" heroine, despite the horrible things she did and how the SanitySlippage that nearly destroyed her was primarily her own fault.
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Randal is an interesting example. While other characters generate divisiveness and in-fighting over who likes them, whether their actions were correct or understandable, and their interactions with other characters, Randal just... skates on by. About as negative as the reaction to anything he ever does gets is "neutral".
** Taffy, by a long shot, considering that she's popular enough to win practically every positive poll on the official website regardless of the category, including the poll about which character would you like to see have their own spin off series from the main cast.
** Tila Sunrise, too.
** [[spoiler: Also Phi.]]
* EvilIsSexy: Alejandra counts for this to a certain degree. Din and Jin have had traits of this, especially when [[spoiler: they transform to evade Sarah and Digit's capture for almost killing Digit.]]
** Highlighted in the Dungeons And Dames side-comic, where [[BigBad the explicitly evil "ice queen"]] wears an even more fanservicey version of Alejandra's festival dress.
* FandomBerserkButton: Soul Kat has a big BerserkButton related to this trope due to so many people screwing up Davin Preacher's name, instead calling him Devin.
* FanNickname: Chalosan, [=SoulKat=], and ID_Fox are sometimes referred to as either "the Katbox Krew" or "the Big Three".
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: When Chalo published [[http://www.laslindas.katbox.net/?p=533 Comic 265]], this text was included as part of the update: "And in that fateful day, while in the middle of a lusty dream (I guess), the life of the lil rascal came to a end. Will someone remember him, after he's gone, I wonder? Only time will tell." Within the next week, Chalo's brother died.
** It was also coincidentally posted shortly after [[CrayonShinChan Yoshito Usui]] was found dead, having fallen off a cliff on September 11th, 2009.
** During the comic's early days, a number of gags were centered around the farm's well. The same well was later the center of a rather [[TearJerker heartrending]] scene.
* HoYayShipping: The forums turned Randal's apparent metrosexuality into a running gag where he's actually gay...and the favorite fan pairing for him was with Miles. It got to the point where an April Fools strip was produced that depicted the two naked together in bed.
* InternetBackdraft: It's generally not a good idea to bring up the Miles/Taffy fight from the Harvest Festival arc, as it will cause some readers to say "[[{{Jerkass}} Miles]] needs to ''die!'' '''Horribly!'''" and others to reply with "The stuckup cocktease prude whore deserved it. Bitch." The forum even tries to dodge this by cutting off such discussions before the flames can heat back up.
** Hell, whenever ''any'' character makes a controversial action, you can expect the fanbase to explode into debates on whether or not the action was "right" or "justified". Especially when the action in question involves Miles, Minos, Rachael or Mora.
** Also, anything involving [=SoulKat=] [[{{Bowdlerise}} Bowdlerizing]] content - the Bust Chart images, for example, started off as the LL girls in lingerie/underwear, but slowly moved into having them in less revealing outfits (or even their regular comic outfits). When tribal girl Ailana wasn't drawn topless ''despite having been topless in two consecutive pages of the bonus comic she appeared in'', fans both on the forums and off complained about the Bowdlerization of the Bust Chart, and many believe [=SoulKat=] is the one responsible for this.
** The "Island Story" arc received heavy criticism, mostly because the whole thing seemed rushed in several areas and Din and Jin getting an apparent KarmaHoudini.
* JerkSue: Mora treads around this territory every so often.
* LesYay:
** Played with in the {{Fanservice}} arc "Breasts Are the Best" between [[strike:Taffy]] Ria and Rachael.
** Joked about in the main comic [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/index.php?strip_id=224 here]]
** Also, Alejandra and Tootsie's relationship; unlike the above example, this one is actually canon, though it's also played with in "Breasts Are the Best".
* MagnificentBastard: Ambar will ALWAYS win. And she will ALWAYS do it with a condescending smile on her face.
* MartyStu: Minos is often seen as one by fans. Miles too, though he's closer to a CreatorsPet.
* MemeticMutation: Messiah's "Scandalous!", arguably.
** And Randal's "Fabulous!", inarguably.
* MemeticSexGoddess: This apparently applies to most of the females in the comic, but [[GoodBadGirl Mora]], [[RichBitch Alejandra]], [[TeamMom Taffy]] and [[BrokenBird Rachael]] stand out the most in this area.
* {{Moe}}: [[spoiler:Only two pages in, and Phi is already garnering a reputation for being cuter than ''Digit''.]]
** Taffy, ''especially'' when she's wearing her reading glasses.
* {{Narm}}: Any comic page that tries to have a serious moment while shoving in as much fanservice per panel as humanly possible.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Even those who dislike Rachael (grudgingly) admitted that her [[spoiler:risking her life to save Digit]] was a good move.
* RonTheDeathEater: Mora receives this treatment at times.
* StrangledByTheRedString: [=SoulKat=] has apparently decided out of the blue that Miles and Rachael need to be shoved together as soon as possible, with little other than [=ID=] holding him back from doing it within a few pages. The part with Miles showing Rachael his junked plane, with Rachael reacting inexplicably well to Miles calling her pet-names and sharing his responsibility-dodging dreams with her, was the ''toned down'' version--the original, according to [=ID=], was filled with juvenile flirting and completely unsubtle double-entendres from both characters. As Rachael has previously given every indication of absolutely ''despising'' guys like Miles, and as Miles has not shown a single sign of miraculously becoming the type of man she'd want to spend her life with, this trope is in full effect as she's steadily [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] into a stereotypical {{Tsundere}} to facilitate their pairing.
** Rachael goes directly from making it clear what an undesirable creep she still thinks Miles is to being his friend. And all it takes is Miles saying he likes her and parroting the typical Miles+Rachael shipper claim that they're alike. And on the forum, [[WordOfGod despite Chalo himself saying all that's changed is Rachael just hates Miles a tiny bit less]], she's begun adopting [[ItsAllAboutMe his arrogant, myopic worldview]] that she's previously explicitly stated she hates, while he goes on about how close they are and how much time they spend together and refers to her as "[his] girl". [[SarcasmMode How very well-written and perfectly-paced.]] Additionally, they seem to be getting placed into a clearly abusive relationship, with Miles using a classic battered wife excuse when Sarah asks why he's all beaten up and Rachael confidently and firmly backing up said excuse. By now, even some of the shippers have been stepping back and saying "Wow, this really is getting terrible." [[FlipFlopOfGod Chalo later went on to claim this was her way of showing sympathy for him after the beating she gave him and seriously believes it's in-character for her.]]
** Randal and Taffy's relationship applies as well. They barely know anything about each other, rarely interacted with each other at all before this, and still end up ''deeply in love, [[IntertwinedFingers holding hands while gazing into each other's eyes]], and [[TrueLovesKiss passionately smooching]] after one date'', in a scene so overblown and rushed that it feels like a parody of the classic Disney formula. Additionally, the entire thing's ridiculous pacing makes it seem like it was done solely to get people to stop questioning Randal's sexuality ASAP, and it doesn't help that [=SoulKat=] has [[UnfortunateImplications more than once expressed a desire for people to stop viewing Randal as so much as feminine and shown immense disgust and hatred for a number of fan-favourite homosexual pairings and those who like them.]] After a certain point, [=SoulKat=] seemed determined to shove the pairing down everyone's throats and force them to love it, through some of the most overplayed and stereotypically sugary dialogue and displays of affection possible between the two.
* {{Squick}}: What's more disturbing? Digit actually being drawn for the bust chart, or the fact that so many people wanted to see her on it so badly?
** And now [[spoiler:Alejandra's new resident spirit, Phi, is drawn right off the bat in a fanservicey outfit with prominent breasts and hips. [[WordOfGod Despite being just as much a child as Digit.]] Oh yeah, totally not creepy.]]
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/archive/afterglow/ Digit completely got both Mora's wish to see Taffy and Randal "do it" AND the cum joke.]] The latter of which she grinned and laughed at. She's supposed to be the equivalent of a prepubescent child and she's already becoming a second Mora. [[UnfortunateImplications And some fans are disturbingly pleased by this.]] Yeah.
*** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/archive/special-occasion/ And now we know why she got it.]] Digit is connected to Mora to such a degree that she knows and feels when Mora has sex. Digit, who for all intents and purposes is a prepubescent child of about 10 to 12 or so, KNOWS AND FEELS WHEN MORA HAS SEX. WHY DOES SHE HAVE THIS FEATURE? And to make matters worse, she's visibly discomforted by it.
* TakeThatScrappy: [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=549 Tiare says what we're all thinking.]] You think Soulkat reads this page?
** Whoever on the Katbox Krew allowed Miles to get pounded by Rachael for about two pages clearly noticed how much he's hated outside of his devoted fans. From the sheer vitriol that Miles attracts, it's clear that many readers would've liked a dozen more pages of that.
* TearJerker: Last panel (warning: '''spoilers''') of [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/index.php?strip_id=265 this page]]. Full stop.
** [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/comic/dreams-of-my-morita/ Idward's explanation of his fling with Mora]] (NSFW warning) was surprisingly touching, considering that his love of Mora had been pretty much PlayedForLaughs before. At least it helped flesh his character out a bit from a nerdy StalkerWithACrush.
* TheScrappy: Though opinions vary on Digit, she fits the technical specs down to a T. Sarah wanders towards this territory occasionally, and Miles is probably this whenever he's not being a CreatorsPet or just an out-and-out AuthorAvatar.
** Rachael receives a disproportionate amount of hatred on the forum. Amusingly, she's one of the more popular characters outside the forum.
* WhatAnIdiot: Mora could've handled the LoveTriangle situation better...
** Neither Rachael nor Minos handled it any better.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: The bright colors and animal characters may make it seem like its age appropriate for everyone, [[http://laslindas.katbox.net/?p=13 that is until you get to the fifth page....]] ('''Warning NSFW''')
* TheWoobie: Taffy, in most parts of the comic combined with aspects of her childhood is this in spades.
