- Schedule Slip: Longest episode of this was followed by a reboot of the whole comic because of the author's Art Evolution.
- Muggle Born of Mages: Linton seems to have oddly much insight into some things.
- Weirdness Magnet: Lauri Salmi, even though Linton seems to think Lauri is the weirdness rather than the magnet.Lauri: Itís just that all this shit always happens to me. Iím used to it.
- Parental Abandonment: Frank, also Linton up to a point.
- Very little FEMA response: The New Frontier
- Genius Loci: Birchhill ranch. Pre-reboot, when Jack goes out at night the trees appear to have red eyes that follow him around.Jack: God this place must hate me.
- Theme Naming: April and June, all the oldest Reed sons being called John (except Jack, but then again Jack is a diminutive form of John)
