Crowning Moment of Awesome: You're trapped in a hostile valley filled with monstrous creatures. You've already lost one party member. You were captured by one group of hostiles only to get taken in by a second; you're out of your element and vastly outnumbered, and it's the middle of the night. But your friend has just been offered to a King Kong lookalike. Your response?
Leader: Fools! You're too late to save your friend! He belongs to the Night Queen now!
Glon: Did you hear that Cadugan? She just told us we have some Night Queen ass to kick.
Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Jone goes on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge visiting the man who had tried to turn her mother into a prostitute and one of his clients. She guts the bastard and the client and then turns to the terrified woman, who had been forced to strip, cowering in the corner. She then drops her sword and gives her a hug. (Although the girl was still terrified of her during that hug.)
Ensemble Darkhorse - Cap'n Fang is listed on the cast page as having just 38 appearances in over 3,000 strips, but every one of his appearances has comments from readers about how much they love him.
Tear Jerker: Wolf is ordered to execute Arachne. He heads off to do his duty, tears running down his cheeks. Why? He won't stand against Arachne - either because he knows it's pointless or because he's loyal to her - and he really, really wanted to be King. No. Seriously. He's a male Drow in a society that uses them as (literal) footstools, and he has poured his considerable natural assets and willpower into doing whatever it takes to work his way up as far as society will let him go. He's finally got the unheard-of chance to get the highest position any male Drow could ever hold in society - and he throws it away rather than raise a hand against Arachne.
Squick: The massive quantity of interspecies romances (or even same species), but also this strip.
Ugly Cute: Most of the monster races. The "good" races are, as a rule, more conventionally pretty, but the goofy, cartoony style means that the monster races are actually very cute in their own way. Gren in particular is adorable.
The Woobie: Poor Goria. She was kicked out of her tribe for failing to bring back medecine to heal her father and bearing a half-human child, was relegated to a slum by the humans, pressured into prostitution, and just when her daughter is given the promise of a happier life, the Black Mountain orcs launch a raid on the town. Then she finds out she's the descendant of a legendary orc tribe and is reunited with her daughter, but then is ordered to marry Glon, and her daughter becomes an Ax-Crazy lunatic who stabs her. And after Jone's death, she's a casualty of the drow/orc war. If anything, she's relieved her life is finally over.
Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Jone. She was born mute to a mother exiled by orcs and despised by humans, tormented by bullies, and the man who offered her a job was killed shortly after. And when it turns out she was engineered as the perfect hybrid killing machine by the orc god, she ended up attacking everything around her, even her mother and said god, until she was taken out by a massive explosion, serving as an punishing angel in orc hell. And now she's been revived by Ranna...
