* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early strips made more references to anime and really abused the LifeEmbellished concept, as seen when Greg goes on a date with [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]] and Tony builds a {{Mechwarrior}} which causes his girlfriend to complain until the author bribes her with an [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]. After a while most of the unrealistic wackiness was confined to Tony and his EvilOverlord antics.

[[spoiler:The 'Mech destroys the Eva's power cable, but it doesn't have any weapons capable of penetrating its defenses so the whole thing ends in a draw.]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: Averted with the various computers and consoles that have gained sentience over the course of the comic, like Dave's PAL and Dreamcast, which are nice and friendly. Though when Dreamcast returns years later in an [[VideoGame/{{Portal}} Aperture Science Personality Core]], Greg briefly worries that there's a [[GLaDOS psychotic A.I. somewhere that wants to kill him]]. Tony says there is, because that's [[EvilOverlord just what he does]].

** Also, when Dave was experimenting with new voices and gave PAL the voice of [[{{ASpaceOdyssey}} HAL 9000]], PAL claimed it was encouraging him to do terrible things.
