* PurpleEyes: Joy has a pair, meant to accentuate her magical nature and to add a bit of visual flair to her drab aesthetic.


* DrinkOrder: "The Bad Day" is Joy's favoured cocktail whenever she chooses to plague the Devastatorium with her presence. To wit, it contains One Bloody Mary, One Long Island, and One Margarita all mixed and sipped out of a blender jar. She doesn't share.

* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: Upon being confronted by [[spoiler:the EldritchAbomination the Balls Grinders summoned with their spell]], Joy fearlessly mocks the creature because [[spoiler:she had all ready put in motion a banishing hex against it a few pages before.]]



* DrugsAreBad: Unwilling to get a regular job, Joy pays her part of the rent (ranging from half of it to a mere quarter) by selling her old school textbooks to occult enthusiasts online and buying legal magically-charged substances from the wizarding world so she can repackage them and peddle them to junkies as exotic narcotics.

Joy indulging in marijuana from her fourth year onward in Flabscabs is outright stated to have contributed to her declining scholastic performance and eventual expulsion.

Added DiffLines:

* ADateWithRosiePalms: The second chapter opens with Joy supposedly looking through a catalogue for magic wands. It's ambiguous if they just happen to resemble dildos or if she was lying to Alix about what kind of catalogue she was reading.
* TheAllegedCar: Joy's Bootleg M89 Magic Wand, a cheap and unreliable enchanted twig (held together by scotch tape) with very limited range.


Added DiffLines:

* DamselOutOfDistress: When Joy predictably screws up rescuing her from the Balls Grinders, Alix uses her rage at the entire situation to rip herself out of the sacrificial cross she was tied to.

Added DiffLines:

* CompositeCharacter: Satanica Graffiacane is a blonde, red-eyed fusion of [[Literature/HarryPotter Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy]], resulting in a temperamental, elitist nerd who is perpetually infuriated by the plebeian teenage drama of her school.


* InkSuitActor: Lucy's design is heavily based off of the appearance of indie musician, Kimi Recor.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Lucy's design is heavily based off of the appearance of indie musician, Kimi Recor.


* NutritionalNightmare: Joy's is Fat Frank's Slippery Sweet Suicide. Aptly named due to being made up of Bacon, Bacon Fries, Bacon Bread Wrapped in Bacon, Eggs in Bacon, and Lettuce (read: Bacon painted Green) wrapped up all together and covered in Bacon-Based Ketchup.

* NotWhatISignedOnFor: One of Alix's fellow [[spoiler:sacrificial victims]] screams about how she only accepted the backstage pass to the Balls Grinders concert for the free bear as [[spoiler:she's being burnt alive.]]

* XDaysSince: The Devastatorium has a "Days without catastrophic fire related accidents" sign that's only up to 5 which doesn't bode well for it's future.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: The Nightmare Bible is a dead ringer for the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' franchise.

* EveryoneHasStandards: Timmie and his fellow drug enthusiasts might buy illegal narcotics for a quick high, but even they found the Battle Mushrooms that Joy sold them to be over the line. Firstly because when they were opened, one of them broke one of their jaws in an attempt to escape, and secondly, after they were subdued and rolled up into joints, they wouldn't stop screaming as they were being smoked.
* {{Expy}}: If not necessarily one to [[Literature/HarryPotter Harry Potter himself]], Joy is one to his fellow students from Slytherin, even going to a similarly named wizarding school and receiving her (mostly junk) mail through owls which swarm around her building. She also has shades of the author ILLUMINATED's rendition of [[Comicbook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] from his other webcomic [[http://illuminatingcomics.tumblr.com Everything is Illuminated...and then Dies]], a crass, acid-tongued, self-righteous, self-loathing, violent, and overall toxic garbage fire of a fantastically empowered woman.

Added DiffLines:

* MonsterRoommate: Joy is one to Alix as she is both detestable on a personal level and a failed warlock who sells magical contraband.


Added DiffLines:

* ThemeNaming: The clerks and owners of the Nerdgasm comicbook shop are named Timmie, Tim, Timothy, and Thomas (a name which can also be shortened to "Tim").

* BrickJoke: Tuomas of the Balls Grinders is introduced mixing what he believes to be a homemade aphrodisiac which is composed of [[BreadEgssMilkSquick Beer, Cologne, Pheromones, and his own semen.]] He returns over a dozen strips later during the concert where he sprays Alix with it. Twice. [[EyeScream In the eyes.]]
