Added DiffLines:

*PowerTrio: The Galactic Superheroes fall into several subcategories of this trope, including FreudianTrio (George as the impulsive and excitable Id, Fred as the calculated and diplomatic Ego, and Sue as the healing, cautious Superego), BigThinShortTrio (George is big, Sue is thin, Fred is short), and TwoGuysAndAGirl.


* FunnyAnimalAnatomy: As one of the comments pointed out, Ratboy Genius looks nothing like a rat. Could be justified, though, seeing as it's unclear whether "Ratboy" implies that he's supposed to be an anthropomorphic rat or part of some species of ratlike people.
* FurryEarDissonance: Ratboy Genius and Little King John both have this.

Added DiffLines:

*NightmareSequence: An entire video from The Flood arc is dedicated to one of these. [[spoiler:LKJ dreams fitfully of his villainous past-- since he is implied to live exclusively in Ratboy Genius's dreams, that might make this sequence a DreamWithinADream.]]

* AerithandBob: Most of the characters have names that describe who they are essentially (e.g.: Ratboy Genius is a rat-boy who is a genius; Little King John is a little king; then there's Green Monster, Happyman, Very Tall Friend, Mr. Big Arms, The Big Fish Boss...). Some character names are simply absurd (e.g.: Summer Solstice Baby; The Hoo-Hoos). Then we have Fred, George, Sue, Clyde, and Bob.

The first and foremost is ''Ratboy's Kingdom'', which follows the adventures of titular character Ratboy Genius and his exploits throughout his kingdom. Next came ''Happyman on the Red Planet'', an exciting opera starring some new characters. It is currently unfinished, but the author has promised to end it someday. Written as a prequel to that series is the trippy space opera ''Galactic Superheroes''. Although it's only three episodes, Galactic Superheroes sets up for future plots.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotNice: While trying to mediate things between Old Fingerhead and the Hoo-Hoos, they straight up tell Old fingerhead that [[NoSympathy they don't care what he thinks or what his problems are]] as long as he's disturbing the peace. They then come up with a solution that heavily favors the Hoo-Hoos and nearly completely ignores Old Fingerhead's issues.


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOutOfHere: After being beaten down by George, talked down to by a bunch of freeloading Hoo-Hoos and told that nobody cares how he feels and that his issues won't be listened to or resolved, Old Fingerhead just goes along with what the Galactic Superheroes have planned and leaves without another word.

Added DiffLines:

* DefiantCaptive: Summer Solstice Baby isn't at all happy about Little King John kidnapping her, and she insults him every chance she gets.


* VileVillainSaccharineShow: Little King John is really unnerving, if you don't look at the [[LargeHam hilarity of his personality]] and his insane level of OffModel. Or perhaps, the insane level of OffModel is what makes him more unnerving.
