YMMV / Gold Digger

  • Archive Panic: There's quite a lot to catch up on at this point. Luckily, Fred Perry has posted the first 199 issued of the comic for free online.
  • Ass Pull: A common occurrence in the comic. Concepts will be introduced without any warning to help the plot proceed and during fights characters will often use spells and martial arts techniques never seen before and Gina make use of brand new technology that just so happen to be effective against whatever villain she's confronting. Due to this Fred Perry will often include caption boxes to explain what is happening.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: No matter how detailed the story gets or how big the cast gets, Gold Digger will always be best known as one of, if not the most Fanservice filled comic (both normal and furry) on the market since 1992. The author created Rule 34 and annual swimsuit specials do not help.
  • Complete Monster:
    • Dreadwing was once a lowly iron dragon, who helped raise the young platinum dragon T'mat. When T'mat surpassed him in power, Dreadwing attempted to kill her before being defeated and banished from the dragon race. Unable to accept T'mat's love for him, Dreadwing would discover the device called the Time Raft and used it to return to the other dragons, defeating, mutilating, torturing and raping T'mat to destroy any love she might have for him and force her to suffer whenever she saw their daughter. Massacring many dragons, Dreadwing attempted to recruit his own private force by offering his chosen recruits the option to torture their mates to death or watch as Dreadwing erased infant dragons from existence. When they refused, he made good on the threat. Traversing other worlds, Dreadwing became a violent scourge, destroying as he willed before being defeated by Gina Diggers. Entering into a "cosmic chess game" with her older, alternate timeline self Ancient Gina, Dreadwing still takes the chance to murder those he could before launching an attack on the world of Jade, aiming to subjugate it and even attempting to kill his own daughter D'bra with no remorse. Egotistical, sadistic and filled with loathing for whatever he cannot control, Dreadwing stands as the comic's most enduring and horrifying monster.
    • The former werewolf patriarch Brendan makes a pact with dark powers to achieve incredible powers which he tests by murdering his own wife. Engineering a "peace" between the werewolves and werecheetahs by creating a drought that kills many of the latter, Brendan betrays the werecheetahs and commits utter genocide on them, massacring the men, women, and children. He is only prevented from killing a single baby thanks to the sacrifice of her mother and the intervention of archmage Theo Diggers. Brendan also plans to sell his own people into slavery to fulfill his own end of the deal, and mocks his own daughter for adhering to any standard of honor before she defeats and imprisons him. Escaping later, Brendan tries to murder his own children and mocks the only surviving werecheetah, Brittany "Cheetah" Diggers, for her clan and biological parents' deaths, intending to use his powers to freeze her as living stone and keep as a trophy for all eternity.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At one point, Perry had been toying with the idea of killing off Britanny at the end of the "Oblivion" arc (he didn't). How did he decide whether to go through with it or not? A coin toss.
  • Les Yay: Plenty between Crush and Xane. Mostly on Crush's part.
    • For Crush, it seems to be a matter of If It's You, It's Okay for Xane. That said, Crush does it on purpose because she likes flustering Xane.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Dreadwing, Gothwrain
  • Rule34: ...with some of it drawn by Fred himself.
  • So Okay, It's Average: The OVA, no doubt it's a marvel of animation especially done by only one man over several years (and hand drawn no less). But some complaints against it is pacing, the awkward pauses between dialogue (as obviously the VAs did their lines separately) and drawn out scenes can make it a bit of a chore to get through.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Brianna and Zan's relationship. They go on a few dates and Brianna finds out she's pregnant and she's totally fine with it, and she tells Zan and he's totally fine with it, and suddenly they are totally in love and engaged in a blatant example of Babies Make Everything Better. It really sticks out when compared to every other relationship in the series, some of which developed organically over several years.
