YMMV: Flipside
  • Aesop: The depictions of Marvallo are particularly Anvilicious...
  • Badass Decay: Bloody Mary, once Maytag befriended her and pried out a sympathetic backstory.
  • Heartwarming Moments:
    • This exchange, after the scene where Bernadette is taken hostage and Maytag negotiates for her release by offering to cut off parts of her own body.
    Bernadette: I don't want to be saved if it means leaving you disfigured. Can't you understand that!
    Maytag: Yeah, I understand. And I'd cut my whole body into ribbons if that's what it took to save you. Can't you understand that?
    • Maytag using her words to try and befriend Bloody Mary, while the latter has just eaten May's arm.
    • In Book 0, Regina and Lucient finally spitted out what they felt about each other, and kissed.
  • Iron Woobie: Maytag.
  • It Was His Sled: Maytag and Bernardette are a couple. Readers will catch on fairly early in the story, but an arc chapters later confirms it as if it was the most unexpected left turn in the universe! An online comic reviewing podcast pointed out this scene as one of the comic's story flaws.
  • Mary Sue: The author likes to lampshade Maytag and Bern as being this in the intermissions.
  • Woobie:
    • Suspiria, following Kin's death and Maytag going manipulation mode on her. She remains a Woobie well into Eschelon, with Glyph acting as her protector.
    • Bloody Mary, after learning about her past.
