Trivia: Erfworld
  • Reality Subtext: It is believed Parson couldn't swear in book 1 partly because the comic was being hosted on Giant In The Playground, which doesn't have swear words outside the forums.
  • Schedule Slip: Afflicted book one rather severely.
    • Sort of happened with book two. The artist's mother died, so he rightfully gave her time to mourn. In the meantime, he wrote text only entries.
  • Series Hiatus: In November 2011, Xin took time off to deal with her dying mother. During this time, the site was updated with the text only "Inner Peace (Through Superior Firepower)", which details Wanda's first few turns of life. The main story resumed June 4th 2012.
  • Shout-Out: It is easier to list pages that don't have shoutouts to something or other; for instance, Parson once said that when it comes to helping his own cause, Stanley is "somewhere between Gilligan and Starscream."
    Captain Oveur: Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Victor?
    Tower voice: Tower's radio clearance, over!
    Captain Oveur: That's Clarence Oveur. Over.
    • Thinkamancer A.V Club is named after a newspaper and bears a striking resemblance to Alyx.
    • Thinkamancer Pamelor is named after an anti-depressant.
    • Prince Sammy is from the kingdom of Hagger. Sammy is a rocker. Sammy Hagger is the lead vocalist of HSAS, a hard rock band. The stroke to kill him is represented by the Unsound Effect, "HSAS," solidifying the Shout-Out.
    • The Avedon Unsound Effect is to the unusual work of Richard Avedon, the photographer.
    • When Ossomer is croaked again, the Unsound Effect is "GNSP" or "good night sweet prince" which can be a Shout-Out from anything from Hamlet to 4chan.
    • In the 98 strip, the man who yelled, "eat hot cameo" is Chris Miller, aka Firewheels, who was someone who donated a Mac Mini during the Kickstarter which is being used for the motion comic. note 
    • On page 67, Roger Victor Clarence said the All State slogan, "are you in good hands"?
    • According to the wiki, Lord Manpower the Temporary is named after Manpower Inc., a company which specializes in temporary work. His death statement, "I can taste key lime pie," is a proper toast when drinking a shot of key lime KeKe, a liqueur. Furthermore, he becomes a "zombie" which is a term that is also used for a type of cocktail which includes fruit flavors, especially lemon and lime flavors.
    • Book 2 Epilogue 19: Dollamancer Bill lowers a bucket into a well filled with animated female Doll parts, saying "It puts the lotion on its skin"...
  • Trope Namer: Retconjuration
  • Word of God: Examples are collected here.
