YMMV: Bob and George
  • Archive Panic: It's a daily comic that ran for 7 years. There are 2658 strips in all. You do the math.
    • And that doesn't even count the numerous fan comics hosted on the site.
  • Ass Pull: Many of the powers and mergings that come about seem to be this, but the Author had it all planned out before, and it is funny.
  • Boring Invincible Villain: Mynd is this. He's so powerful that outside of Bob and George, no one can actually hurt him and even then, he's only inconvenienced at best.
  • Canon Sue: The fifth-anniversary recap refers to Charge as "the comic's latest Mary Sue".
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Author mentions that Mynd seems to be rather popular among readers.
  • Freud Was Right: Wood Man... Hard Man... Air Man, the one who "blows"... As Mega Man puts it, "Is it just me? Is it? Am I the pervert here?"
    Dust Man: Well I suck, I blow, and I shoot out wads of junk.
    Mega Man: ... There's one of you in every game, isn't there?
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the Mega Man 5 storyline, Stone Man and Wave Man merge into a (quick-drying) Concrete Man. Now fast-forward four years; Capcom makes Mega Man 9, and one of the new Robot Masters is... Concrete Man.
    • Also, in the Mega Man 4 storyline, Dr Wily is watching a soap opera, and the two main characters are called... Brad and Angelina. This was written while Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
  • Idiot Plot: Of course, the ones responsible always are idiots.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: The mix of Bass and Nate is called B4-T3, or Bate for short. Bate tells Evil Megaman he will beg for his mercy and call him Master. You can guess where this ends. Even the author knows it, because that strip's title is "The Worst Joke Ever" (complete with a Rim Shot).
  • Nightmare Fuel: "FISH HEADS, FISH HEADS! ROLLY POLLY FISH HEADS!"
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny The author admits to wincing at this strip, even though he knows it's the first use, because it's been done so often since.
  • Tearjerker: The Cataclysm and how everyone except Proto Man dies.
    • The Epilogue and how it would have happened had Zero not mentioned that Dr. Wily would be killed by him. Everyone in the Classic period would have died somehow except George, The Author, Ran and Proto Man. George would have been back in his dimension though and he never got to see his friends again and Bob was finally killed at some point. The Author made things worse by giving Ran a more powerful Cossack Buster and because it led to Zero finding Dr. Light, Dr. Light was killed. The Author would then turn into the Shadowy Author and spend the rest of his days blaming himself for the deaths of everyone, as would Proto Man.
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: Bob and George is Megaman after a long bender.
    • Quick Man is Cut Man and Elec Man's love child on crack.
  • Villain Sue: As he points out here.
  • The Woobie: George. He gets trapped in the Mega Man dimension that the Author runs, he gets kidnapped and tied to a ceiling for six months, has Bob for a brother and just goes through a lot of hell throughout the events of the comic.
