These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
May not be an example of this. Pip is an established Jerk Ass and the artist did draw the telemarketer rather cute. (Though to be fair his art does seem to only have only two settings, "attractive sex bomb" and "complete Gonk".)
Crazy Awesome: Scarlet, even more so once her sisters start helping. For starters, she once made a lawn mower design that incorporated A BLACK HOLE and, more recently, cracked perpetual motion with a Slanky.
Fridge Logic: Art is often unable to convince the authorities to help him with various situations, with the idea being that the situations are too weird for anyone to believe. Regular enough for humor value, but one of the weird things that no one believes (or he thinks no one will believe) is that his housemates are anthropomorphic animals. Yet no one bats an eye when Pip, Kat, or Scarlet go out in public. Kat and Hilary both apparently attended a public school, Kat has a job with a human boss and Hilary is a client for Art's company at one point and the head of a lingerie company. So if anthropomorphic animals are so accepted, why would the police not, say, believe a call that a squirrel girl broke into the house?
Moral Event Horizon: It turns out Hilary was luring Pip along with the promise of sex, only to knock him out with drugs and have sex with another man instead, and claim that the two of them had a great time the next morning. Made worse when Pip mumbles in his sleep that he think she's gorgeous and is just happy to have someone who wants to spend time with him.
To make matters worse, the entire arc began as if trying to convince us Hilary was redeemable and that Pip was her salvation. Not only does she blow this by having an affairafter drugging Pip, she also reveals this was all a ploy to seduce her way up the chain of command to get out of her employment rut. And only for the sake of twisting the knife further, she leaves it up to Kat to reveal to Pip he had been used all this time. Post-arc, fans can agree Hilary has absolutely no redeeming qualities now.
Poor Leonard. What he has to go through isn't all that dramatic or horrible, really, but that changes nothing.
It's kind of upsetting that most of his daily grievances involve being denied food, either because Scarlet steals it or because everyone else is too lazy to just open a can for him.
Doesn't help that Kat tends to designate caring for him to Scarlet, the Cloud Cuckoolander.
Art. Especially back when the squirrels turned him fat, making his life worse in practically every way, and everyone acted like it was his fault.
A big part of what makes Art the woobie is his normalcy. His housemates include a photographer cat-girl, a comic book geek penguin with loose morals, four deranged squirrel geniuses, and a legion of miniature shadow people. The only thing separating him from the reader is the 4th wall. If any of the readers found themselves in the same situations, they might ball up and cry. Granted, while things routinley hit the pits for Art, his friends are there for him, in a true nakama fashion.
Jerkass Woobie: Pip goes from Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist to Woobie when we learn that Hilary has been using him to cover for her at the charity shop and then stringing him along with the promise of sex, only to drug him and go off to sleep with another man. Worse yet, Pip confesses that he's grateful to have finally found someone who just wants to spend time with him.
