Positivity is a Gag-per-Day Stick-Figure Comic by "Manga"note that mainly either parodies certain works and phrases or does something painful to its cast. While a lot of the comics are standalone, there are certain recurring characters:
- Two guys, in which one of them wears a hat and frequently suffers some sort of absurd injury or blow.
- Some guy in a wizard hat, who regularly engages in psychopathy.
- Another guy who wears a top hat, and represents the author.
This webcomic contains examples of:
- Alt Text: Most comics have these, but there a few where the author forgets to add it.
- Author Avatar: The guy with a top hat is one, and is used to express the author's feelings and some generic jokes.
- Bilingual Bonus: "Greek" contains the phrase "Su gamo ti mana", which roughly translates to "I fucked your mother". Thus explaining why the poor fellow got in trouble when his friend told him it meant "Thank you".

- "Christmas Special" parodies EastEnders' big dramatic Christmas Episodes.
