''Dog Man'' is a series of "[[InsistentTerminology Graphic Novellas]]" created by Creator/DavPilkey, creator of ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants'' (and in-universe, by George and Harold, who are now in sixth grade as of ''A Fetch-22''). The backstory goes like this: There are 2 cops. There is Officer Knight and [[HeroicDog Greg the dog]]. However, one day, [[BigBad Petey the Cat]] plants a bomb, [[WireDilemma and the heroes have to defuse it]]. However, they cut the wrong wire and the bomb explodes. As Greg's body and Knight's head are dying, doctors [[WeCanRebuildHim sew Greg's head onto Knight's body]]. And thus, a new crime-fighting hero is born!

* ScaryStitches: Dog Man has obvious stitches connecting his head to his body. However, no one ever calls attention to it.



* WeCanRebuildHim: How Dog Man was created. [[spoiler:Flippy too, as a cyborg]].
* WeCanRuleTogether: In ''Lord of the Fleas'', [[spoiler:Piggy attempts this with Petey, and Petey actually considers it... that is, until Piggy insults Lil’ Petey, leading to the above mentioned WhamLine]].

to:

* WeCanRebuildHim: How WireDilemma: Dog Man's origin story contains one of these, as Officer Knight and Greg have to disarm a bomb set by Petey. Knight asks for input from Greg, and interprets Greg's growling as instructions to cut the green wire. Unfortunately, as dogs are colorblind, Greg cannot tell the wires apart and cutting the green wire detonates the bomb, leading directly to Dog Man was being created. [[spoiler:Flippy too, as a cyborg]].

Added DiffLines:

* CreateYourOwnHero: Petey was directly responsible for Dog Man's creation, on account of the fact that a bomb he set blew up and grievously injured Officer Knight and Greg, forcing their combination into Dog Man, who possesses the best traits of both.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Grime and Punishment'' drops a huge bombshell about Petey’s past, [[spoiler:mainly what happened to his mother.]]
--->[[spoiler:'''Petey:''' Look— your Grampa... He ABANDONED me and my mom! He left when I was just a kitten! He left when… He left when my mom was sick.\\
'''Lil’ Petey:''' Your mommy was sick?\\
'''Petey:''' Yeah.\\
'''Lil’ Petey:''' She got better though, right? (''Petey doesn’t respond'') Right, Papa?]]


* ClonesArePeopleToo: [[spoiler:Petey eventually decides this by letting Lil' Petey stay with Dog Man so he can live his own life at the end of ''A Tale of Two Kitties''. Not that this stops him from trying to sway him back to his side in the next book...]]

* AbusiveParents: Petey's father, who left his son when he was a child, is a prime example. He's the perfect example of CatsAreMean, and becomes emotionally abusive towards Petey and his son.

Added DiffLines:

* ToiletDrinkingDogGag: In the story "Tongue of Justice", Petey had brainwashed the police force with tampered air fresheners, and Dog Man was chasing him in his secret lab when he couldn't resist the urge to drink out of a nearby toilet. Petey then gloats that he hid the antidote to the brainwashing in the toilet, so Dog Man [[VomitIndescretionShot vomits up the toilet water]], licks it up, and slobbers the brainwashed policemen with it.
