* AlasPoorScrappy/TakeThatScrappy: Seemingly invoked. The characters Witherspoon and Lamarr were both introduced as intentionally irritating side characters with a lack of common sense, and both die shortly after being introduced. Both times are, however, played for drama.
* FashionVictimVillain: The series has got this in spades. Erik Larsen obviously [[AuthorAppeal loves designing these guys]]. Given the tongue-in-cheek nature of this comic, [[JustifiedTrope it makes sense]], and the costumes fit their [[IncrediblyLamePun silly names]], and the series sometimes lampshades this fact. A lot of them are throwaway baddies, but several members of his RoguesGallery fit this category as well.
** Meet [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/15776/1080522-hellrazor3.jpg Hellrazor]]. This guy made his first appearance in issue 2 of the mini, and he's one of the longest-running recurring villains of the series, [[ThoseTwoBadGuys as a duo with his partner]] Cutthroat. For that matter, [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/11352/799391-16.jpg Cutthroat]] qualifies too. To make things even better, Hellrazor keeps that hairstyle even [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/15776/1080197-hellrazor2.jpg when he's in jail]].
* FridgeHorror: At first, Emperor Kurr mowing through every enemy he meets seems just like the writer trying to show us how dangerous he is. Then you realise, that's not the only reason. Dragon was the hero of the book, he overcame almost impossible odds every storyline, as with any good superhero. Emperor Kurr is Dragon. He is overcoming impossible odds, but now he's not trying to save us...
* {{Squick}}: The Body Function, a gang led by the pus-filled VillainousGlutton Cesspool, consists of the phlegm-spewing Nasal Ned, the {{Fartillery}}-powered Backfire, and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Belcher]]. Oddly, he didn't recruit the diarrhea-cannon wielding Dung or MenstrualMenace Heavy Flo.
