** Although there is some Heartwarming in this as well, since Mr. Fish is able to ''choose'' which move to replace Hyper Beam with and ''actively avoids'' deleting "Don't Eat Jared", demonstrating that he genuinely cares about Jared and doesn't want to hurt him if at all possible.


* Mr. Fish's comical ambivalence/hostility toward Jared takes on new meaning when you consider that Jared doesn't know how to use Pokeballs. He never actually captured Mr. Fish. ''Mr. Fish is still a wild Pokemon.'' On the other hand, it also shows the deep bond they share. When Jared is given a gift Pokemon and breaks the Pokeball, the Pokemon runs off and Jared merely assumes it's not well trained. Compare to Mr. Fish, who sticks with him despite his frequent behavior problems.
** "Dream Time with Mr Fish" reveals that he really does love Jared. However, this does explain why he needs don't eat Jared as a move, and why he's able to make his own decisions regarding which moves he forgets.

** This was a "duh" moment. Volt mentions that he was born with Nomura syndrome but doesn't look like he was infected. Volt was designed by Nomura himself and people seem to forget that he's capable of designing non-bishounen characters; for bonus points, Volt goes on to mention Xaldin, Cid, and a few other non-bishie Nomura characters.

* FridgeHorror: Just how much PP DOES [[http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/1110 Don't Eat Jared]] have?
** [[http://thepunchlineismachismo.com/archives/511 Not that many]].\

* FridgeLogic: The comic with Raiden doesn't really make a lot of sense with the rest of the comic. Coelasquid's stated preference is for drawing macho, beefy guys, and characters like Kuja and other Bishonens are dismissed for not fitting that description. Which is fine. But Raiden is one of the more effeminate looking characters out there in terms of appearance and body type, and Commander Badass still hangs with him like the rest of the guys.
** It's also a matter of style and personality and Raiden's personality as of his latest game has him showing some pretty manly traits (including a bloodlust that rivals Kratos') That and Raiden as of late only has hair left as a non-cyborg part and not that pretty. That and Even Commander Badass agreed if he only had his hair as his last remaining human part, he'd pamper it as much.
*** He's manly on the ''inside''.
** The comic is meant to be a deconstruction of "manly characters" according to pop culture and how obnoxious they would be in the real world. Some people complain about how Raiden has been {{Flanderized}} to suddenly be more badass than he was in past games. Maybe that's it? Who knows.
