* NobodyLovesTheBassist: Honey Hart is thrilled to learn that Cherry, the Candy Hearts' tambourinist, can also play drums and won a local child beauty pageant. Meanwhile, Coco, the bassist, meekly says she also plays the oboe, is bilingual and is on a soccer team... but no one pays attention.



* ThePowerOfRock



* StalkerWithoutACrush: Wild-eyed Soda Sweet (real name Sonya) charms her way into the Candy Hearts and becomes Honey Hart's new best friend. Then she frames Turpentine for the kidnapping of Cherry's puppies, drugs Honey Hart and takes her place on stage.
--> '''Soda Sweet:''' I didn't wanna kill ya... maybe just make people think you were on drugs and went crazy.



* ThePowerOfRock


Added DiffLines:

* TheVoiceless: Zero never speaks on panel. His only line in the comic is from an in-universe newspaper interview ("I just dig playing drums"), and Jacques was even open to a fan's suggestion that the reporter merely fabricated that quote for appearance's sake. That Zero ''can'' speak is confirmed when Honey Hart, giving a toast at his wedding, says that he "couldn't shut up" about his husband-to-be right from their first date.


* BSideComics: Ian & Stacey Comix, in which the two friends investigate mysteries and engage in stock SitCom hijinx. Neither of which has any effect on the main storyline, although both characters do occasionally turn up there.



* BiTheWay: Foxy and Nic, Nic is also pretty good at scoring [[ThreeWaySex threesomes.]]

* SaturdayMorningCartoon: Although the comic doesn't take place within one, it often uses the format's conventions, such as [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle public service announcements]] and characters abruptly breaking into song complete with instruments that appear out of nowhere.



* UnrequitedLove:
** Stacy, a reoccurring side character, is in love with her male best friend, [[IncompatibleOrientation but he's gay.]] Doesn't help that they first met during a threesome.
** Coco, Candy Heart's [[NobodyLovesTheBassist bass player,]] has a crush on Honey, but knows Honey is in love with someone else. Coco takes it in stride if a bit sad that she lost before she got to try.

Added DiffLines:

* AnachronismStew / AlternateHistory: The story (intentionally) roughly takes place in the present day, but fashions and music from the 50's to the present day are all present. And there are no cell phones or computers because that would make a lot of the rumors that fuel the plot easier to deal with.

* TrueCompanions: Strangely enough the Sourballs fit this dynamic better than any other band, even the Candy Hearts, who while good friends are not as close to one another as the Sourballs are, who come off as more of a misfit family then a band.
