- Alphabetical Theme Naming: Most characters' first names begin with different letters of the alphabet.
- Artificial Human: Armando was created to be irresistible to women, but is mostly just stuck in the midst of an existential crisis.
- Artificial Limbs: Isabelle has a robotic pelvis, legs, left arm, left eye, and a tail to boot!
- Bathos: Most of the humor comes from mundane situations and the first awakening of revival subjects is usually silly, but that doesn't change the fact that they had to die in the first place.
- Blaxploitation Parody: Luscious Black. He's the boldest, blackest character in fiction.
- Blob Monster: Kilo. He's fond of attractive human females and doesn't produce solid waste.

- Cute Monster Girl: The primary comedic setup is the Doctor reviving a girl and Gale hitting on them.
- Deadpan Snarker: Amanda's inability to feel emotions means "deadpan" is her only choice in delivery.
- Emotionless Girl: Amanda came back wrong and lost her emotional capabilities.
- Fauns and Satyrs: Ursula has horns and goat legs below her knees.
- Fiery Redhead: Inverted with the mellow Sable. Played straight with the unhinged subject A-4.14 and moody (as shown to have red hair in a flashback) Dr. Pleasant.
- Giant Enemy Crabgirl: While Cathy is a normal sized girl, her crab claw is almost as big as she is.
- Harping on About Harpies: Joselyn has wings on her back, feathered arms, and bird legs.
- Hulk Speak: Kilo displaying the "fine, articulate speech you can expect from the average person."
- The Igor: Far more hideous than a hunchback, Gale is an obnoxious dudebro.
- Little Bit Beastly: Beatrix's only visible bee parts are her antennae... And her compound eyes.
- Mad Scientist: Natch.
- Mummy: Sable's bandages and top give her this sort of vibe.
- Mushroom Samba: Comic 17 where subject A-2.14 has flooded the compound with drugs.
- Na´ve Everygirl: Ophelia, in spite of being nothing but a head on spider-like robot.
- Opaque Nerd Glasses: The shading on Dr. Pleasant's glasses at least show which way he is looking.
- Our Werewolves Are Different: The goddess Na'dlehee Lupu is shown transforming into a wolf-like creature. Also has gold eyes in her human form.
- Our Vampires Are Different: Vladina does not need to consume blood, but simply smelling it can drive into a serious state of bloodlust.
- Plant Person: Subject A-2.14, which also happens to emit a powerful hallucinogen. May or may not actually be "Alive and stuff."
- Pulling Themselves Together: A side effect of Sable's super healing is how easily she falls apart. The benefit of Sable's super healing is how easily she can be put back together.
- Shout-Out: Dr. Wright is a clear reference to Dr. Light. But he's kind of a jerk.
- Sexbot: Dr. Wright's Companion Bots are capable of being this.
- Snake People: Francesca, who comes complete with forked tongue, wild hair, and plenty of sass.
- Sssssnake Talk: Francesca does this when she is teasing people and/or has been drinking.
