YMMV: Sugar Bits
- Arc Fatigue: For nearly half the comic Hansel, Bo, Brave and the others fight against Licorice's forces. Reading it now probably doesn't seem bad but at the time the comic took a lot of hiatus. To clarify the fight started around 2008, took four years to get through it (finally ending in 2012) and the characters never moved from the area when it first started neither.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: A kinda sorta example, Brave.
- Gene as well. Even critics who tore the series apart in their reviews were willing to admit that they liked him and wished he had more focus.
- Toy Ship: Hansel and Bo again.
