being "lathe'd" by a miniature samurai with a naginata;
being run over by a race car that makes the sound "TIIIIIIINES" driven by a fork;
being "arrowed" by a giant man who shoots arrows from his mouth;
The series is best known for spawning several minor memes, including "ow! my [something unusual]!", and being pwned by something with the caption "[said something]'D!", "It's over!", and others. It also makes fun of various stereotypical high-school/teen/young-adult activities, such as prom, sweet sixteen birthday parties, and Valentine's vamlumtimes day, with a gradually increasing ratio of directed, ridiculing humor to simple absurd humor.A (so far oneshot) spinoff of this spinoff was created based on the several characters named "Greg" in the series. 4 Gregs is a misadventure of four such characters who each embody some sort of nerdy/geeky/dorky stereotype.
Adorkable: What's Her Face. "Uh...hi. I like music, and um, cloth."
A Good Name for a Rock Band: Issue 12 gives us the two hipster kids who decide "She Likes Cloth" would make a good band name. Also, when the girls are forming a band, So And So suggests "Smartly Pretty", but is shot down in favour of "Kissyboots".
Against My Religion: "Thank groodness. Sweating is against several of my religions!" -Cheerleader in Issue 14
Blatant Lies: In issue 15, when Manolios Ugly One tells Dn'D Greg to not lay a finger on his daughter (or he'll gut him like a sheep), a random gutted sheep says that it isn't so bad... when it turns out to be bad.
Also, in the same issue, Arrow'd Guy claims that What's-Her-Face will come into her own in college... and then immediately afterward shoots her down with a flock of sparrows. "A new twist on an old classic!"
Bottomless Pit: Their school has one (named after its sports team, of course)
Extracurricular Enthusiast: So-and-So explains that the "Priggity Prizom" is the name of this year's prom, and adds, with a deranged look, "I was on every committee ever." This fits well with the preppy overachiever stereotype she personifies.
Eyes Always Shut: Japanese Culture Greg. His eyes briefly open whenever he randomly utters a Japanese word or name.
Gretzky Has the Ball: A Scotsman caber-tosses Cheerleader in Issue 10 and is disgusted that his throw only goes 23 meters. Success in the caber toss is measured by straightness, not distance. The creators point out their mistake in the DVD commentary.
Her Code Name Was Mary Sue: Creator Strong Bad inserts himself into several of the comics, often as the love interest of one of the girls.
Hidden Depths: D'n'D Greg turns out to be very knowledgeable about football. The other Gregs are surprised by this, but he explains that fantasy football is still 'fantasy'.
Mind Screw: The ending of "4 Gregs." So basically, Strong Bad was drawing the Teen Girl Squad drawing the four Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs!
And it's a SUPER Mind Screw if you count the Brothers Chapman, so that means the Chaps are drawing Strong Bad drawing the Teen Girl Squad drawing the four Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs drawing the girls drawing the Gregs!
Only Sane Girl: What's Her Face is probably the only one with any common sense. For example, she is the only one who refuses to jump into a lion's mouth for the secret Santa.
Only Known by Their Nickname: So-and-So's real name is Kristen, and the other three might be named Virginia, Joy, and Jennifer, but beyond that, their real names aren't even mentioned outside of the original email, and they're usually treated as if their nicknames were their only names: "Yes, Mrs. So-and-So...erson."
They Killed Kenny Again: Some number of the Teen Girl Squad almost always die by the end of almost every episode, the exceptions being episodes 2 and 3 and the Decemberween special. Lampshaded at the end of episode 8 where the girls have all died except for Cheerleader, with the last casualty being What's Her Face, whose upper half had been bitten off by a shark (see below):
Vague Age: The Teen Girl Squad are described as "teenage girls between the ages of 13 and 19", with What's Her Face being fifteen at the youngest, since she's had her license for a year (in some states, mostly Midwestern ones, you can get your license at fourteen).
The Ugly One's birthday is her "Sweet Someteenth".
"We're in eighth grade!"
"I'M FIVE YEARS OLDER AND IN COLLEGE!!!!!"
Wicked Stepmother: Judith So-and-So-erson (So-and-So's stepmom), who looks suspiciously similar to the Arrowed Guy. In episode 11, she makes So-and-So get a summer job at Shirt Folding Store.
