Added DiffLines:

** In another strip, Wonderella explains to some villagers that "[[https://nonadventures.com/2010/03/13/a-broom-of-ones-own/ Witches are FAKE]], like unicorns, or [[EskimosArentReal narwhals]]!", after a leprechaun sends her back in time. [[spoiler:Of ''course'' she's wrong about the witches]].

Added DiffLines:

* MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate: Dr. Shark first appears as a mad scientist who turns a city's entire populace into sharks just for the hell of it. However, it's averted for the most part, with his villainous acts being few and far between.

Added DiffLines:

* WonderWomanWannabe: Wonderella herself. She has a costume similar to Wonder Woman's, but is a heavy-drinking, foul-mouthed Jerkass. She also has much stranger powers, like killing plants with a word and coughing up octopi when restrained.

Added DiffLines:

* OldPeopleAreNonsexual: In [[http://nonadventures.com/2011/10/22/you-cant-always-get-what-you-haunt/this strip]], Wonderella is helping an elderly couple with the young BedsheetGhost haunting their home. When the old woman complains that the ghost's presence interferes with sex with her husband, the ghost is so disgusted that he ascends right to the afterlife.
-->'''Wonderella''': Ghosts can't really vomit in their own mouths. He was out of options.


''[[http://nonadventures.com/ The Non-Adventures of Wonderella]]'' is a parody of the Creator/DCComics character Franchise/WonderWoman and many superhero tropes in general. It focuses mainly on the mundane parts of the life of Wonderella, a lazy [[TheLadette Ladette]] superheroine who demonstrates [[PunchClockHero little interest in being a hero]]...or, in fact, doing anything much outside of partying, getting completely wasted, violence, and shopping. She is super-strong, super-durable, she can't fly but she can "totally jump hella high", [[FlightStrengthHeart when tied up she can hork up a giant octopus]], she can [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/06/28/balance-of-flower/ tell plants to die,]] and she can [[http://nonadventures.com/2008/04/26/power-couple/ curl up in a perfect ball when traumatized.]] She also has a rarely-used invisible blimp, and the tendency to make prejudiced remarks (especially about gay men, but pretty much every minority group gets a turn).

* AmbiguouslyBi: Wonderella often dates men, but she also gets into situations with Hitlerella that could read as bickering girlfriends, has groped Plunderella's behind, and has a pretty obvious crush on Fantomah. An imaginary Ani Difranco explicitly states that Wonderella is a closeted bisexual.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianTrio: The three main superheroes Wonderella, Queen Beetle, and Patrianna fit this dynamic quite well.
**Wonderella is the id, a selfish boor who mainly does things for the sake of pleasure and gratification.
**Queen Beetle is the ego, serving as the voice of reason and sanity to her fellow heroes (or "heroes"), usually willing to serve a reality check, though she also has her limits.
**Patrianna is the superego, who takes to enforcing law and order, and holds her fellow superheroes to strict standards, messed up as they may be sometimes. In addition, her daytime job is as a literal judge.


** ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. [[http://nonadventures.com/2011/07/30/beauty-and-the-beatdown/ With]] an InUniverse sprinkle of FridgeBrilliance on Wonderella's part, as [[spoiler:she realizes both that the Beast's servants were unjustly affected by his punishment and that beating up the fairy could have been a possible solution]].
** ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. [[http://nonadventures.com/2011/08/13/the-trill-is-gone/ Owing to the source material]], the ending result is more a (failed) SilentSnarker than a CuteMute.
