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.
YMMV: TV Tropes The Webcomic
Trope that may or may not be found in the webcomic:
Complete Monster: For a one-shot villain with only one arc, XD displayed a surprising amount of complete evil bastardness compared to other villains. Beating Ere to within an inch of her life only to be stopped by the emcee reminding him of his own "no killing"-rule, and subsequently chunking the announcer as well as a good quarter of the audience because he was frustrated that his rule made the tournament "boring" is a prime example.
The A.U.T.H.O.R. mentions that he may be one, Lampshading it several times.
Even more so then the A.U.T.H.O.R. is /b/ an Eldritch Abomination that has claimed to be responsible for everything bad that has ever to Report and responsible for Dab Gibs Heel-Face Turn.
The Yay Agenda arc also gave us the evil variation with Colonel Noggard, a batshit insane Afgan vet, who built a Jet Pack in a middle of a Chase Sceneout of a crashed helicopter's turbine! Then he landed and tossed it away just as it was about to explode, proceeding unflinchigly after Report. You either need balls the size of a watermelon or be completely out of your mind to top that. Noggard is probably both.
FREAKING EZ! That is all.
Gabe seems to be contest Bertrand for his spot at the top. His first appearance was a weekend Filler page depicting him singlehandedly taking on both /b/ and Dab Gib while completely naked (save a blindfold) and in space, with the caption, "That guy in the middle, the one whose name you don't know—he could probably actually do this (and still find time to grope Ere between blows). Then there's this gem:
Gabe: "I once solved a war with my penis. The shaft grew so big that it fell of and petrified. They raised it up and pointed it skyward, and now worship it as a monument. Then a new one grew in its place. You can see it from space.
Retrope: The monument or your penis?
Crowning Music of Awesome: In the game version of Tales of Epic Fantasy Quest: "At The Ready", "Stand Your Ground", "Reason for Edit", and "Competition of Balance", (the first battle theme, the first boss battle theme, the final boss theme, and the arena theme, respectively).
"Song for You (RPG Ver.)" (the credits) and "Ephemeral Song of Battle" (the second battle theme) weren't bad, either.
Axel is a minor one; he was introduced as a one-shot foil character for Gabe, but being the only male character introduced in the Bronze Age to not hit on Ere gave him enough popularity to be included as a candidate in I Can Be An Ass, Too...
It took one strip for Teller to be instantly loved by the fanbase. From his first appearance, he has been a fan favorite, and only proceeds to add more people to his ever-growing list of fangirls.
And during the Worst Case Scenerio arc they become a couple but are then killed and eaten by a Face Heel Turned Axel.
Harsher in Hindsight: The "Worst Case Scenario" opened with a nuclear explosion at the W.I.K.I. HQ and Regnis dying of radiation poisoning. This took place about a month before the Fukushima nuclear mess in Japan started. Voices in the fandom say that it was what forced the author to push the Reset Button at the end of the arc.
One day they will make Twilivania. Tens thousands of screaming fangirls will buy these games and subsequently start a large scale revolt when Awesome Belmont strangles Jacob with the Glampire Killer. The revolution will become so great that government will be called in and forced to raze them with fire hoses that shoot fire and arrest Stephanie Meyers for making sequels. And the world will be a better place for it.
A Better. Freakin'. Place.
"Brynn, what did I say about opening your eyes? You'll scare the children!"
She's got pretty eyes.
It sounded like a good idea at first, but then I thought.
"I have yet another mundane yet epicallyawesome invention!"
"Does 'epic' even have an adverb form?"
Don't let Report play Tsukihime! Viel will learn to see the Lines of Death and then we'll be fucked!
Fable 5 will be set in present-day New York. Swords will still be there.They will be more effective than the rocket launcher.
Dancing magic + Mangoes = Tangoes!
And then Axel bled out the ears...
Memetic Badass: Resiurb Suoretsiob, who punches Satan for burning the roast, and casually arm-wrestles with Chuck Norris.
Gabe: Actually it was five times. I ran out of fingers and I'm holding a drink in one hand.]]
Teller might just surpass Gabe. Fans state that he has had an orgy with every single female character, has a penis he plays baseball with, and has more concubines than every king ever.
Moral Event Horizon: Dab Gib has had a lot of opportunities but this one definitely takes the cake:
Yug: [sees his brother for the first time in years] Dab?!! Dab: [about "Betrayer"] That is a wonderful song, little brother... Yug: [smiles happily] Dab: ...but I hate metal. [decapitates Yug]
The way Gabe kills Adonis in Gabriel: God of Lightning is to literally shake his molecules apart, using his powers to make sure Adonis feels every bit of it. When Gabe wants you to hurt, you hurt.
XD manages to prove as big a villain as other, longer-standing villains in a single arc.
Nightmare Fuel: Most often with the treatment of Ere's cybernetic eyes. The readers don't even know some of the stuff she sees...
The Flying Kraken Thing from the "Worst Case Scenario", full stop. Made much worse by the fact that we never see all of it, just its shadow and glimpses of its tentacles. And that eye, that freaking eye.
En0 crosses it when, in need of a power supply, he proceeds to use his "Cessation of Life" skill, i.e REMOVING THINGS FROM EXISTENCE IN THE MOST PAINFUL WAY POSSIBLE on an orphanage in New Trope City. When Owt questions him, his reply was "Who cares?"
OT3: Already cropping up among the fandom regarding Ere/Report/Retrope. Unsurprisingly.
As of "Worst Case Scenario" finale, it is official.
The Scrappy: Bisho Mitahora is considered to be this by many of the readers
Seasonal Rot: The "Informational Breakdown" arc, which changed the characters to the point that they could not be recognized, such as Trope-Tan turning evil simply because she decided to do it for the hell of it, the only likable parts were the parts with Wikipe-tan, culminating in her snapping Trope-Tan out of her evil fit by punching out Trope-Tan when she achieved God Mode.
Tear Jerker: Sir Romra, while dying, offers his helmet to Naharrud so he could use it as a head to see—and read the books like the latter always wanted.
Sun-Dog's death. He didn't want to fight, but was constantly forced into battle. His last flashback showed his life as nothing more than him being used as a tool. He died without speaking to anyone about the sadness he felt.
Things started going down hill after the original writer had a Creator Breakdown and the new guy came in and can't seem to figure out what he wants to do with the story and caused some massive Character Derailment.
Unpopular Popular Character: Ere is absolutely ADORED by the fandom but the authors seem to love to screw her life over and over again.
