* AngstWhatAngst: The whole reason Koishi sealed off her Third Eye in the first place was because of the [[FantasticRacism fear and hatred]] directed at the [[{{Telepathy}} mind-reading]] satori species. Now, however, she simply bounces back really quickly (though this can be attributed to [[{{Shipping}} Flandre's presence]]). In general, Muffin goes out of his way to avoid angst anyway...
* ArcFatigue: The ''Rethinking the Natural Law'' [[StoryArc arc]], which lasted over three months, partly due to the RetCon and partly due to ScheduleSlip while the RetCon was going on.
** ''Create.swf Adventures'' also ended up having a little too much length and a little too little interest for the FinalBoss, owing to Muffin's insistence on ''having'' a FinalBoss, a role for which [[OriginalCharacter Masha]] [[OffTheRails turned out to be entirely unsuitable]].
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome ([[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Crowning]] ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Moment]]'' [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome of Awesome?]]): [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/RNL-Meimu.mp3 Edge of Spacetime ~ Navy-Blue Generation]]. What makes it a borderline crowning ''moment'' is that for the most part, it, [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/RNL-MeetMeimu.mp3 Aperture Girl]], and the beginning of [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/RNL-TimeParadox.mp3 Broken History ~ Time Paradox]] apparently aren't remixes of anything the way [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/RNL-Dreamworld.mp3 The Inevitably Forbidden Game ~ Icemilk Magic and Innocence]] and [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/RNL-Rin.mp3 Strange Bird of the Moon, Illusion of Mysterious Cat ~ On The Shoulder of Hisou Tensoku]] (which is also awesome music) are--Muffin just created them himself. Talk about going all out.
** To give "Create.swf Adventures" [[MSPaintAdventures the proper feel]], he [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/?p=csa01marisa0185 remixed Maiden's Capriccio ~ Dream Battle]] in the What Pumpkin style. Specifically, he made it sound like a mix of Maiden's Capricco and Sburban Countdown.
** And then later, he mixed "Umbral Ultimatum" with "Solar Sect of Mystic Wisdom ~ Nuclear Fusion" -- Or rather, "[[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/music/CSA01-Yasora.mp3 Subterranean God ~ Sunfire]]" (which ''does'' borrow a bit from "Solar Sect of Mystic Wisdom ~ Nuclear Fusion", for [[BodySnatcher obvious reasons]]), a fact that only became obvious once "Subterranean God ~ Sunfire" [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/?p=csa01marisa0493 finally debuted on its own in the comic]].
* FanNickname: {{Moe}}[[MoeAnthropomorphism shroom]] for Masha.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment[=/=]HilariousInHindsight: June 15, 2010: Marisa, when re-reading ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', [[http://dizzy.pestermom.com/?p=csa01marisa0007 has "always felt that [Gamzee] was kind of awesome, in his own way.]] December 31, 2010: [[spoiler: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005119 Gamzee is declared the most important character in Homestuck]] ]]. January 24, 2011: [[spoiler: [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=005258 Gamzee goes homicidally sober]] ]]. (According to [[WordOfGod Word Of Muffin]], "There are no contradictions here.")
** ''Nekokayou'' infamously [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation interpreted Kisume as violently insane]]. As of ''Symposium of Post-Mysticism'', she canonly is.
* MemeticMutation: Among the fans, "MISSION FAILEO" is a minor meme (owing to Marisa Gear Solid and a block-font in which D was identical to O, with a LampshadeHanging in Create.swf Adventures).
* OlderThanTheyThink: A number of fans have mistakenly thought that Muffin created Meimu (who existed for years before Muffin decided to use her). Of course, they have nothing on the one fan who thought that Muffin had created and popularized [[{{Shipping}} Flandre x Koishi]]...
* ScheduleSlip: The comic's main page says "updates Sundays and a few Thursdays" but lately it's become (early Mondays, sometimes up to a day later). Actual ''missed'' updates are rare, but they do happen.
* RootingForTheEmpire: In the confrontation with [[FinalBoss Yasora]] in Create.swf Adventures, Muffin forgot to include a single line which would have made it much more clear that Yasora intended to burninate the countryside; he [[OrwellianRetcon added it back in]] after he realized this (after the fight was over!), but there were several readers who felt that the fight wasn't really all that justified.
