This comic provides examples of:
- Anti-Hero: Scout. Although he used to be somewhat of a local legend, he is now a bit of a pathetic layabout.
- Art Evolution: Every strip is a little better, it seems.
- Battle Couple: In the 12 page mini comic, Scout and Penny are shown to have been this before Scout's Heroic BSOD.
- Berserk Button: Boyd Pizzly almost killed Penny, and Scout attacked him
- Blond Guys Are Evil: So far both villians, Laylor Tinsey and Boyd Pizzly are blond, while scout has dark hair. Of course, being Scene kids, their hair might not be natural.
- British Accents: The "New Readers" page explains that Lizzy Bell is British. Nothing more, just British.
- Evil Gloating: Taylor and Boyd are ridiculously guilty of this.
- Faux Affably Evil: Boyd Pizzly
- Flash Back: Happens to Scout when he gets into a fight with Finn, and details how his brother, Chance was killed, and why Finn is blind. It also reveals quite a lot of the story elements, such as what exactly the 'sleeve' tattoos are.
- Handicapped Badass: Finn Callaghan
- Heroic BSOD: It is implied that Scout had one of these after his older brothers death.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Penny Smashworthy
- Say It with Hearts: Sparticus.
- Sissy Villain: The vaguely effeminate, physically pathetic, always fashionable Laylor Tinsey.
- And the covers playing, sunglasses wearing Boyd Pizzly hasn't been that intimidating either
- Smoking Is Cool: Finn Callaghan
- Sunglasses at Night: Boyd Pizzly
- The Fighting Narcissist: Laylor Tinsey has strong shades of this.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Penny Smashworthy
