Level 30 Psychiatry is a webcomic hosted on ComicFury that asks "Have you ever noticed how insane video game characters are?" quickly followed by "What if they had a scrap of common sense and got professional help?"The titular practice is run by Dr. Gardevoir, a Gardevoir who has somehow "broken through thelanguage barrier" to help those who have lost their minds (or never had them in the first place) to reintegrate into society. Other main characters include Roll, the head of the MM Memorial Hospital and Gardevoir's friend, Head Nurse Chansey, who has to deal with the physical problems, former galactic hero and current bumbling janitor Roger Wilco and airheaded Trainee Nurse Audino.While most comics are separate entities there are intermittent arcs.
Another Side: The stress of the job is beginning to get to Gardevoir.
Olympics: A tie -in to the then-current London Olympic Games.
Home Visit: Audino has a nightmare and decides to sleep over at Gardevoir's place
Dawn of Misunderstanding: A Pokémon trainer who was unaware of the crossover arrives in Light City, along with her flirtatious Gallade.
Malpractice Makes Imperfect: The hospital hosts tryouts for the vital role of surgeon, despite a lack of competent surgeons in Light City. Hilarity Ensues.
Updates Sundays, usually. Late updates tend to be accompanied with "apology sprite comics" featuring author avatars of the creators.
Accessory Wearing Pokemon: Chansey and Audino wear nurse's hats, and Gardevoir's alter-ego wears glasses. Audino also wears a night cap and a ribbon at various points, both in hospital colors.
Action Bomb: As a Creeper shows us, it's not a lot of fun when you have a nervous disposition.
After the End: The series takes place in a world created from the fused fragments of other worlds after an event known as The VG Cataclysm.
All Psychology Is Freudian: Discussed. Gardevoir mentions that Freud's theories are outdated but since they're well known they end up being what most game characters are based on, meaning she has to resort to them.
Art Evolution: Due to increasing personnel added to the comic the style has changed a lot. The initial comic was a rather crude sketch done in colored pencils. Eventually more artists and a colorist were added, giving quite an upgrade to the comic's style.
Art Shift: It's bound to happen with three rotating artists, but one example is Child of Plight, drawn to resemble its namesake.
Freudian Couch: Gardevoir orders them in bulk because the things get destroyed so often that there's a running out-of-universe game on guessing what colour the next couch will be an how long it'll last.note For the record, the current standings are as follows: original red, 2 comics, blown up by a creeper; gold, 11 comics, crushed by Bowser; black leather, 11 comics, glitched into unusable condition by Missingno; green, 3 comics, rendered unusable by Master Belch and burned offpanel by Roger; burgundy, 4 comics, used by Peter Puppy to beat Roger over the head; blue-gray, 11 comics, dyed a permanent orange by an Inkling.
This isn't the last time terrible things will happen to Roger in the background either.
Genre Savvy: Kano came to the surgeon tryout to, quote "brainstorm some new fatalities". That he expected the fact that in a world where every video game character ever ended up, quite a few quacks would be showing up shows exactly how Genre Savvy he is.
Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Gardevoir wears a night gown at bedtime despite not wearing anything normally. It was lampshaded in the second strip she wore it in.
Have a Nice Death: Even if he's not the main character, Roger Wilco gets snarky comments from a text box when he dies.
Hard on Soft Science: Inverted. Gardevoir doesn't think highly of physicists but that has more to do with the fact the ones at Black Mesa keep sending head crabs into her office.
Homemade Sweater From Hell: Averted and Played Straight. Roll makes very nice and tasteful winter sweaters but while she puts the extra effort into Gardevoir's one, the egg-shaped Chansey gets a very ill-fitting sweater.
Hopeless Suitor: Gallade is shot down in less than 4 panels after his first appearance. He later tries to hit on Marina Liteyears and gets thrown across the room for this efforts.
Lightning Can Do Anything: Invoked and Subverted. Gardevoir and Roll try it to cure Gardevoir's Hollywood schizophrenia but all it does is make Gardevoir's hair stand on end.
Literal-Minded: GLaDOS takes idioms as serious scientific questions, conducting ridiculous experiments including seeing how many angels can dance on a pinhead or tracking bears to see if they crap in the woods.
The Space Quest narrator, in a sense; even though it's still the same 8-bit text box, the characters can "hear" it and hold a conversation.
Parental Favoritism: Not literally but Chansey accuses Roll of this when Gardevoir got a better sweater than her.
Well I guess we know who mom's favorite is.
Pokémon Speak: Averted by Gardevoir who speaks plain English and played straight, though translated, by every other Pokémon. This is parodied when White Mage and Black Mage need to speak to Chansey, complete with translation boxes.
Pun-Based Title: Most of the comics have one to the point that significant ones can be identified by the fact they don't.
There are a few reminders that Roll is a robot, mostly played for laughs. For instance, she recharges with a power cord attached to her neck and her eyes glow in the dark. She also performs a Blue Screen of Death upon seeing Rule 34 and attempts to hard reset herself with a magnet.
Gardevoir's last name was once considered to be Sirknight, which is Gardevoir's name in Japan.
Split Personality: Gardevoir has one in a mini-arc, Another Side. It seems the other side of her personality, Glasses Gardevoir, is an embodiment of her more collected and analytical side, as she is always level-headed and examining Gardevoir's problems. Gardevoir is the only one who can see or hear her.
