YMMV: Candi
  • Angst? What Angst?: My Candi and the others seem to get over the fact that she was kidnapped, tied up, shoved in a cage by a crazy person and nearly set on fire. All they seem to recall is that Alex also dumped her that night.
  • Bizarro Episode: Candi and the gang randomly go clubbing! Apparently they go clubbing all the time, they even introduce a new character there. But after they go home they never mention the club, or any interest to go dancing at all. It's like they just decided it never happened.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Normally, the strip is light, funny, and inoffensive. It has however included one guts-churning moment when the protagonist is kidnapped by a disturbed individual who believes she is demonically possessed and attempts to burn her alive. He comes within seconds of doing so.
  • True Art Is Incomprehensible - The motto of Professor Fitzgibbons, who resents that Candi's art assignments are easily understood.
  • Unfortunate Implications - Linda, whose scheming played a major role in breaking up Candi and Alex, is possibly one of the most selfish and manipulative characters in the strip. She is also the only major character drawn to look even remotely overweight, and her weight has been mentioned in dialogue in a derogatory manner.
    • Linda is chewed out for cheating on Alex, while Nathan (who even bragged about the affair) wasn't, as if he were innocent of the whole affair. In fact, this goes back to when she first "stole" Alex from Candi, as if Alex had absolutely no say in the matter and when in fact it was his decision to break-up with her.
  • The Woobie - Candi acquires levels of this during her long post-breakup depression and it gets more intense before it even really meets its halfway point.
