* {{Anvilicious}}: Let's just say Rowntree isn't a big fan of subtlety. See also AuthorTract and AuthorFilibuster.
* CriticalBacklash: In [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19728_4-superhero-reboots-well-see-next.html this comic]], Rowntree pokes fun at [[Comicbook/{{New52}} DC's latest reboot]]. The problem was, he also poked fun at Franchise/{{Batman}} on Website/{{Cracked}}.com, probably the biggest collection of [[FanCommunityNickname batfans]] on the internet. Coupled with Rowntree [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch clearly never reading a comic about any of the four characters in his article]], the comment section '''''really''''' let him have it.
* GeniusBonus: Applied fairly often, such as [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page430.html here]]. The "16th century Russian howitzer" is in fact the 1586-built [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsar_Cannon Tsar Cannon]], and can still be found in present-day Moscow.
* JerkSue: The Sphinx.
* NightmareFuel: [[NightmareFuel/{{Subnormality}} Has its own page]].
* TearJerker:
** [[TheWoobie Pink haired girl]] just can't ever catch a break...
** [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page511.html This comic is really sad for a lot of reasons.]]
** And the [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page562.html 2012 Valentine's day strip]] as well... may count as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming.
* UglyCute: Most of the monsters Rowntree draws. Just look at some of them in [[http://www.viruscomix.com/page528.html this strip]] without going "D'aaaw" at some point.
* TheWoobie: Most of the characters who have appeared more than twice. [[JerkassWoobie Yes, even the Sphinx.]]
