* BornLucky: Dragon Master [[http://comicshortsmain.thecomicseries.com/comics/5 passes a test]] with an A+. A test that he forgot to study for, and the rest of the class all failed. How?

Zanshlou and Tailii's swords.



** A short-lived character named Gex was [[KilledOffForReal “banished”]] from the series because his real-life counterpart belittled the entertainment value of role-playing games like ''KingdomHearts''. Appropriately, he is judged by Mickey Mouse and sent to Hell to be tortured by Sephiroth for all eternity.

Added DiffLines:



* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: A couple in-universe examples.
** Sammy and Leko are able to connect to the Main Computer (despite being effectively locked out) using a secret directory installed just in case the [[AIIsACrapshoot AI goes psycho]].
** When the virus takes control of Leko's body, he gets locked down when he tries to activate the combat functions and it recognizes the unauthorized code.


The comics follow the adventures of Zanshlou, Leko, and Label Buddy, who are a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja ninja]], robot, and idiot respectively. Other characters include a 1920s gangster named The New Yorker, a thief named Tailii, a hot space marine chick named Sammy, an evil superintelligent clone of Label Buddy, a Shadowy Figure, an evil demon/ninja named Villain, and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many more]].

* TheAssimilator: [[spoiler: MC/Lavos absorbs Sammy to gain her AI permissions, and thus complete control of the ship.]]



* YouWillBeAssimilated: [[spoiler: MC/Lavos absorbs Sammy to gain her AI permissions, and thus complete control of the ship.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HandWave: The entire backstory of the universe is basically one big HandWave. Anything weird that happens, any strange characters or technologies that show up can be explained by Comicshortsia being in an extremely unstable part of the MultiVerse.


Added DiffLines:

* CallBack: LE-37 was introduced in Episode 6 and referred to as a gray [[VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved Spartan]], after which Leko accused the author of the comic of being too lazy to create new sprites. In Episode 53, soldiers from the DDF board the ship and are revealed to be recolored LE-37 sprites, prompting an additional accusation of laziness.

Added DiffLines:

* BuffySpeak: Zan combines it with SwordBeam and CallingYourAttacks when he uses his "NINJA ENERGY SLASHY THING!"


* RuleOfFunny: The wheel summons a horde of [[LegendOfZelda Cuccos]] to attack Label Buddy instead of turning him into a chicken (as it normally would). Why?

-->'''Zanshlou:''' This is WAY more hilarious.
* SelfDeprecation: Zan's intro for the first issue consists of explaining his reasoning for the reboot with a crumpled diagram showing what was wrong with the original series.


* UnsoundEffect: Most often used as a ShoutOut to WebAnimation/TeenGirlSquad. SHOUT OUT'D!

-->"All information we put on here is officially as canon as it gets, and overrides any previously existing plot points, character details and events."

Added DiffLines:

* OneProductPlanet: The entire planet Repairia is one big junk yard inhabited by robots who fix things for visitors.

* TheyWouldCutYouUp: Leko's blueprints and other associated research data were lost when the Lysander Edison facility was accidentally teleported into Comicshortsia, and the only way they can make up for lost time is to reverse engineer the only existing prototype. Fortunately, Comicshortsia has Sentient Mechanical Protection laws that prohibit RidiculouslyHumanRobots from being reclaimed as property against his will.
