** Remember that thief that was in the party before they hired Nodwick? The reason the group couldn't get rid of him was because his contract stated that unless he was caught stealing from the party, they couldn't fire him. Unfortunately, he was so good that no method the group tried could catch him in the act and Yeagar ultimately ended up resorting to scrambling his grey matter with a cursed artifact in order to get him out of the party. When this proved to be a temporary solution, it's Nodwick who saves the day by rigging the swag he was carrying so that a precious and valuable item that said thief wanted to steal would serve as a lynchpin. Its removal buried the thief under the pile of loot, resulting in him being caught and finally being fired from the party. Said thief got the last word though, as he responded by stealing the clothes off Nodwick's back before leaving.
** Then there was the time when Yeager was being controlled by the Gauntlet of Supremacy, which caused him to raise an army to wage a world war with. When Nodwick and co. go in his mind to save him, they find Yeager practically broken by the Gauntlet. [[spoiler: [[http://comic.nodwick.com/?p=1032 Yet when reminded of Rowen, the one woman he's ever loved, he breaks free. From the mind control of a god-created epic item of evil!]]]]
** [[spoiler:Of course, the ''real'' Rowen wasn't exactly the GirlNextDoor his mind depicted her as...]]
* EvilIsSexy: Brought up to explain why [[spoiler: Countess Repugsive]] pretends to be male.
-->[[spoiler: '''Repugsive''']]: Evil girls are only taken seriously when they're hot. [[TheUndead While I was alive]], I didn't look much better than I do now.
-->'''[[FishOutOfTemporalWater Zorion]]''': That would explain the "wonderful personality" you were famous for...
* MagnificentBastard: Baphuma'al.
* HarsherInHindsight: [[http://comic.nodwick.com/?p=471 Here.]] Some monsters get credit they can't really afford against a henchman's back pay that he hasn't seen a copper piece yet of after the henchman signs the I.O.U over to them... yeah.
* PuritySue: Piffany's goodness is so infamous that at one point she is courted by every goodly aligned being in the cosmos to be their avatar, because she's SO virtuous and pure that having her would increase their power exponentially. How does she get out of this sticky wicket? It's revealed in another entry below...
** This is even lampshaded by WordOfGod. Her character sheet actually states that harming or attempting to harm Piffany can be considered an act of pure evil. One comic even had Artax and Yeager beat the crap out of a [[ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike complaining rescued]] noble for making Piffany cry.
** "[[http://comic.nodwick.com/?p=654 She had a tragically supportive upbringing]]". Probably.
* TearJerker: A representative of the Powers What Is offers Nodwick a chance to stay dead forever. Nodwick balks, whereupon the rep takes him into the possible future after his death [[spoiler: only to find Piffany having a perpetual HeroicBSOD over Nodwick's final death, building and maintaining a huge monument and garden in memory of "the one I couldn't save".]]
