Helped that she's flanked by Death and Pestilence, two of the HorsemenOfTheApocalypse.²* BlackBeadEyes: Among all the characters, only Death has those, although white rather than black.²* BlackComedy: Sometimes Death can be quite, well, morbid.²-->'''Mary''': And you won't kill anyone.\²'''Death''': I can't make any promises on that.²* ChessWithDeath: Spoofed. Death says that he's never lost a game of chess, but it turns out that the only one brave enough to play with him is his dog. [[spoiler:In actuality it's Life who'd shapeshifted into a dog, and they play for the fate of every mortal alive: If Death wins, the person lives. If Life wins, the person dies]].²* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Death sometimes comes across like this. He hilariously misinterprets Mary's inquiries, thinks that the Ultimate Question is whether Star Trek beats Star Wars, and sent to retrieve a penguin's soul, he believes it wants to fly one last time so he picks it up and hurls it through the air.²* DarkIsNotEvil: Death may be morbid and obsessed with death, but he's not malicious about it.²* DeathbringerTheAdorable: Death's dog is called Cerberus, but it's a normal, if adorable dog.²* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Played for laughs in Death's attitude to his job. He hates Easter because of "the one that got away", for example.²* DontFearTheReaper: Death can have some creepy statements at times, but all in all, he's nothing but friendly to Mary.²* ElvisLives: Death says he never heard of him.²* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: The comic is about Mary and Death.²* GlowingEyelightsOfUndeath: Death's face is obscured save for pair of glowing eyes.²* HorsemenOfTheApocalypse: Death and Pestilence have shown up so far.²* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Mary's short, while Death is tall and slender.²* InvisibleToNormals: It seems only Mary can see Death (and Pestilence).²* LightIsNotGood: Life tries to trick Mary into playing a game with him (claiming [[BlatantLies no strings attached]]), but Death doesn't believe it, and Life doesn't try to deny it, claiming it's Death's fault for leaving the doorway open.²* LovableNerd: Mary's worst nightmare is missing school, she's academically focused and her favourite toys are Doctor Who memorabilia.²* MarriedToTheJob: As evidenced by page picture, Death seems unable to think of anything unconnected to his job.²* {{Meganekko}}: Mary has huge round glasses.²* RentAZilla: The monster from Mary's nightmare is a giant, bipedal beast tearing its way through the city.²* ShoutOut:²** When watching skies, Death quotes Carl Sagan.²** Mary has [[Series/DoctorWho a dalek and TARDIS]] among her toys.²** When asked what's the ultimate question, Death says "Franchise/StarTrek or Franchise/StarWars".²** Death reads [[Literature/GoodOmens Good Omens]].²* TallDarkAndSnarky: Death has his moments, although usually he's rather dorky.²* TheGrimReaper: Death has this appearance, complete with scythe and glowing eyes.²* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: After first few times, Mary's pretty quick to get used to Death's presence.²* VagueAge: It's unclear how old Mary is exactly, only that she's still going to school.²------
