* FreudianExcuse: According this [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/times-are-a-changin-137362092 strip]], Gogo experienced social isolation at a young age, received a poor education, and got beat up frequently at the age of 13. It was not until she was 17, she started showing violent tendencies.

** Gogo and Didi are named after the two main characters of Theatre/WaitingForGodot, they're diminutives of "EstraGOn" and "VlaDImir."

Added DiffLines:

* BloodyHilarious: Gogo is able to separate Didi from her completely only after judicious use of a hacksaw. We don't get to see the act, but the entire room is splattered with blood and they're both fairly casual about it.


Added DiffLines:

* TrulySingleParent: Gogo created Didi by simply willing her into existence, causing her to ''grow out of her''.


* ArtEvolution: It actually evolved quite casually over the course of three years. The most noticeable part is Gogo earlier being quite scrawny to latter become an AmazonianBeauty.

* AuthorAppeal: A few jokes or the characters' likes mentioned in the webcomic are born of the author being a fan of it, like Didi's hairstyle being made after [[GhostInTheShell Motoko Kusanagi]] (which Gogo initially was outraged that she cut it and accepted only because of said resemblance.

--> '''Gogo''': Don't be so silly boo-bear. Often, the difference between love and hate is like the difference between red and orange.
* BerserkButton: If Gogo likes somebody, do NOT harm them emotionally or physically. She will find you and give you a warning before she "smash you into yours basic elements and eat them".

* MonochromaticEyes: Pablo's eyes are entirely without any sort of features to them. They're just white balls in his head.

!!The new continuity provides examples of:

* BadLiar: Gogo claims she's from "The...city?", "The...The '''big''' one. '''You''' know...". Andy's probably not dumb enough to believe that.
* BerserkButton: [[http://www.bomango.net/comics/2531366/terms-and-conditions/ Being called a pet, apparently for Pablo.]]
* BigEater: After their second meeting, Andy bought Gogo lunch. Gogo is, of course, completely stuffing it all inside her mouth.
* IronicJuxtaposition: A box labeled DISHES CAREFUL WITH THESE!!! naturally, [[http://www.bomango.net/comics/2530881/7/ does not get treated as such]].
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: [[http://www.bomango.net/comics/2531367/the-path-revealed/67 has Gogo seem have a conversation with Pablo]] in the background.
* SplashOfColor: The comic is largely greyscale up until the 29th (wherein Pablo is his blue self, though he's the only one) and the 43rd (where Gogo sees something very red and yellow) aside from yellow or red light coming off of Gogo, and all characters' eyes (aside from Pablo's MonochromaticEyes, of course). Some parts add another single color to the scene. 66 onward puts in full color.
* SuperStrength: Gogo tears off doors and tips over garbage dumpsters with ease.


As of October 2016, it began to weave a proper narrative, with the author relaunching it to a new continuity.

* {{Catchphrase}}: "Hams!" for Pablo.



** Pablo can also incite this in Gogo.



* LargeHam: Gogo and Didi alike are fond of speaking out verbose narratives.



* MadGenius: Usually not, but Didi occasionally pulls off this kind of [[LargeHam hammy]] flair.



* ShoutOut: [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/It-Is-not-A-Big-Deal-500341986?q=gallery%3AVanHeist%2F3749890&qo=1 This strip]] has some references, the most obvious one being the [[Recap/FuturamaS3E1AmazonWomenInTheMood "Snu-Snu" episode]] of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.

Added DiffLines:

* YouNoTakeCandle: Gogo has no interest in the scholarly topics that Didi has...or proper grammar.

* CuteLittleFangs: Gogo's mouth has them at times. Of course, it's a SubvertedTrope since that's about the only "cute" thing about her.



* GodivaHair: This has covered Gogo a few times.



* LipstickLesbian: Didi

to:

* TheLadette: Gogo, who is pretty much the most masculine character in the webcomic by a mile.
* LipstickLesbian: DidiDidi.



* MixAndMatchCritters: Pablo; its never brought up or explained just what the little guy really is. Andy mistakes him for a racoon in the proper retelling, but he most resembles a cross between a koala and a squirrel.

Added DiffLines:

* OneWordVocabulary: Pablo says nothing but the word "Hams".


Added DiffLines:

* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Gogo doesn't pay much mind when she gets naked or is otherwise poorly dressed.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyHuman: What Gogo really is has never been stated, but she's definitely not a simple human with how powerful she is, or how Didi budded out of her.


Added DiffLines:

* CovertPervert: Didi, apparently [[https://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/laughter-in-the-dollhouse-166716595 according to her plushie]], writes a lot of erotic fanfiction, watches hentai and is fascinated by tentacles.


Added DiffLines:

* HuskyRusskie: SubvertedTrope by Gogo, who is a large AmazonianBeauty who speaks with an accent and poor grammar that cause other people to assume she's Russian. [[UnreliableNarrator While it's not clear what's the name of where she's really from]], she's definitely not from Russian since her childhood was shown being in some sort of tropical island.


* CoolOldLady: Elaine deserves some points after getting Gogo, [[HotBlooded of all people]], to stop arguing pointlessly with Didi and send them from their house to their rooms with just a stern talking to. Admittedly she's a bit younger than most examples, but still.

Added DiffLines:

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Gogo did not have a happy time at high school and spent most of her later teenage years on the streets with her ex, stealing to survive and constantly getting into fights. Eventually the two of them seperated for mostly unknown reasons and there's also a group of other superhumans called Luxtos that she doesn't even want to remember. On top of that there's also some mystery that she hates her mother's guts and that she'll "break her" during their next meeting.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Meganekko}}: Elaine, Andy's mother, is never seen without her glasses.


* DirtyOldMan: WordOfGod says that Roy has given some thought of getting into Gogo's pants (after not so subtly dropping a "hint" to Andy) but he's not capable of acting on it. And this is despite the fact [[YourCheatingHeart that he's a married man with a teenage daughter]].

[[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/feliz-navidad-189956671 This holiday shot]] shows him drunkly flirting with Gogo, much to his wife's irritation and Leesha's embarassment. And it's PlayedForLaughs.


Added DiffLines:

* YourCheatingHeart: {{Subverted}} or {{Downplayed}} perhaps, despite Roy having a mild attraction for Gogo, WordOfGod says he'll never act on it. Being married with a daughter will do that, man.


* {{Adorkable}}: Didi mainly, and Hector as well. [[http://vanheist.deviantart.com/art/song-pipes-596808987 Andy on occasion does it too]].

** With Andy, on the other hand, he really doesn't like having his feelings for Gogo beinf played with in the Halcyon arc. What made this especially hurt was that after his heartfelt confession to Gogo, she goes and (albeit jokingly) brushes it off. To be completely fair, Gogo strongly implies later that getting involved with her will have severe consequences for him (and possibly his loved ones) and from what little we've seen of her past with Caspian the Luxtos group, its not that ridiculous a fear. [[spoiler: For better or worse they start a relationship anyways. Only time will tell what the future has in store]].
