* CrossesTheLineTwice: An [[http://www.seattlepi.com/lifestyle/18630_cartoon14.shtml Easter strip]] displayed a Menorah [[UnfortunateImplications gradually being extinguished with the words "They know not what they do"]] and turning into a cross.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: A quiet one; two ants are sitting on the ground when one asks the other if he would be willing to die for her. He answers yes. She asks if he would still die for her if she hadn't been born yet, which he thinks is "asking an awful lot from a guy." She answers, "Some guys"...and we zoom back to see that they're sitting on a cross.
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Wolf, who also has the rare distinction of being introduced ''after'' the strip came "under new management", a common breeding ground for [[TheScrappy Scrappys]].
** Gronk.
* SeasonalRot: Many fans felt strip went downhill following the original creator's late-life conversion to hard-core fundamentalist Christianity. See above and below. After his death, the strip gained a new production team and turned back to its more wacky gag-a-day roots.
* UnfortunateImplications: Often combined with ValuesDissonance.
** The "menorah" incident mentioned above.
** No other races have been depicted apart from generic white people (who happen to be cavemen), but one comic has B.C. answer the telephone to hear a voice on the other side say [[{{Engrish}} "Your raundry is leddy."]] The last panel is just B.C. giving an unimpressed look to the viewer.
** Not to mention a strip that's [[http://wondermark.com/the-comic-strip-doctor-bc/ been interpreted]] as a slam (pun actually intended) against Islam.
** The only two female characters are called Fat Broad and Cute Chick.
** A Pearl Harbor Day strip features a character reading from a pre-apocalyptic dictionary that the word "infamy" had been forgotten because of Toyota's sales.
