* NeverLiveItDown: A minor example in-universe:
--> '''Bubblegum''': I know ''tons'' about rock music...
--> '''Marceline''': Uh huh. Remember when you thought [[Music/TheStooges Iggy Pop]] was a soda?
--> '''Bubblegum''': That was ''ages'' ago!

Added DiffLines:

* ShipTease: ''Holy crap'' there's so much between Bubblegum and Marceline. There's more subtext in this comic alone than in five seasons of the show.

Added DiffLines:

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: The backup short "The Bootlegger", featuring Peppermint Butler and Cinnamon Bun as detectives, would later be developed into the comic miniseries ''Candy Capers'', which has the same set-up and is written by the writer and the artist of the short.

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: The backup short story "Fruit Salad Days" features Lemongrab, and "The Bootlegger" features the Peppermint Butler and Cinnamon Bun duo that would be the subject of the subsequent spin-off ''Candy Capers''.


* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Bubblegum has a dream at the beginning of the third issue of Marceline and the band being attacked on stage by a giant monster. [[spoiler:It gets fulfilled at the climax, but the monster is actually an insane Marceline.]]



* GRatedDrug: The beginning of the second issue has Bubblegum being disgusted to find the rest of the band's campsite trashed after Marcie and Keila went on a "red bender". It's played very much as an analogy to less kid-appropriate rock star behaviour.



* HulkingOut: Marceline's neuroses finally drive her to turn into a huge dragon and try to kill the audience at the band's final show. After Bubblegum talks her down, the audience take it as AllPartOfTheShow.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Bubblegum gives a deliberately vicious one of these to Marceline at the end, after kindly attempts to talk her down have failed. Marceline is so angry at Bubblegum's insults that she realises that her own fears along the same lines are just depression talking.



* ShapeshifterIdentityCrisis: [[spoiler:Guy's actual dark secret is that he's a shapeshifter who can't remember what his "true" form was.]]
* ShoutOut: Some of the comic covers are parodies of famous album covers, including the eponymous album by Music/TheRamones and ''Parallel Lines'' by Music/{{Blondie}}. And also Jaime Hernandez's famous punk rock show cover for ''ComicBook/LoveAndRockets'' issue 24.
