YMMV: Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi
  • Arc Fatigue: Like, really. Seems to be a running thing with Bleedman's comics.
  • Canon Sue:
    • The general reader opinion of Naga when he first appeared. He happens to be the apparent self-insert of one of the comic's creative team.
    • Bell, to a lesser extent (lesser in that she has some crippling weaknesses which cause her to have her ass handed to her routinely.)
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: There's really no point in caring for anything that happens since we know everything ends in a Class Z apocalypse.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse / Breakout Character: Bell. The amount of fanart she gets is staggering.
  • Epileptic Trees: Bell. Is she a clone? A real Powerpuff Dr. X created? Someone who just has similar powers? Bleed originally envisioned her as a android, so that's also a possibility.
  • Foe Yay: Blossom and Bell. Even Bleedman has gotten in on it.
  • Freud Was Right: In-comic, Jack looks just like Professor Utonium. Considering Buttercup has a schoolgirl crush on Jack, that doesn't bode well for her subconscious.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Bleedman draws the Powerpuff Girls grown up and with more realistic, anime style bodies. Then, a year later, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z was announced.
    • Also with the Rowdyruff Boys whose new appearance in the comic predated their return in the TV show.
    • And then came FusionFall, which seems to rip off Bleedman's style wholesale.
  • Hype Backlash\Hype Aversion: Back in the day, the comic generated a lot of hype, but nowadays, there are a lot of factors that can cause these tropes.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Bell and Mandark.
  • Les Yay: Bubbles' girl-crush on XJ-9.
  • Love It or Hate It: Pretty much a base breaker. Many love the artwork and the idea of seeing their favorite cartoon characters interact with each other in a less then friendly setting. Others just see it as an over-glorified fanfic whose main pull is the art (some even disagreeing on that) with a shallow story that relies too much on shock value and melodrama.
  • Moe: Bell. Drawn in a style much more reminiscent of the original Powerpuff Girls than the girls themselves and refers to GIR as "GIRLY".
  • Narm: One of the main criticisms of the comic is that it tries a little too hard to pull the readers heart-strings.
  • Ron the Death Eater: She might have been a jerk, but Sam was nowhere near this evil in Medabots.
    • Subverted with The Reveal that it's not Sam after all, it's a robot masquerading as her.
    • Nope it's her, she just cyber-nized herself.
  • Unfortunate Implications: The story is chock full of Panty Shot moments for characters meant to be children. That'd be small potatoes since it sometimes happens in fiction, but keep in mind that the artist, Bleedman, occasionally draws things like these, which don't paint a good picture of the artist's overall intent...
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: The Rowdyruffs.
