YMMV / Rusty and Co.

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Madeline the Paladin proved pretty popular among the commenters.
  • Growing the Beard: Levels 5, 6 and 7 all have arguments in their favor. Suffice it to say, over the course of these three episodes, the plot became more integrated, the stakes became higher, and the drama got ratcheted up, all without sacrificing the comedy.
  • Memetic Badass: CUBE GETS SHIT DONE.
    • Not unfounded at all, considering that he does seem to be the most competent combatant of the three (at least against non-metal enemies).
  • Magnificent Bastard: The Grinner manages the impressive feat of being both this and a Smug Snake at the same time. His attitude is pure Smug Snake, but damn if he doesn't earn that smugness.
  • Moe: Many female characters, especially Madeline the Paladin and Prestige Perkins.
  • Ugly Cute:
    • Rusty
    • Slobber, a gnoll resembling a giant humanoid pug.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Madeline's death, prior to her resurrection.
    • This panel, where Mimic mourns her death and thinks of the consequences.
