Scalie Schoolie is a monster girl webcomic about the quirky lives of several high-school Lizard Folk girls, and some school faculty of an all-girls school.

Scalie Schoolie is a webcomic by Shenamation and is hosted on Tumblr here.

  • Aesop Amnesia: Teresa buys every Runfast the Gogetter game, completely convinced that every new game will somehow be great, even though each one she's bought previously was mediocre and broken.

  • Bad Santa: A one-off joke in a Christmas strip involves "The Antisanta"
  • The Bully: Dilys picks on Belinda, trying to take her lunch money and then stuffs her in a trash can.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Liska's intense training regimen, combined with her loose grip on the world around her, allows he to project a slight Battle Aura if she focuses.
  • Cooking Duel: Liska challenges Iris in a volleyball match to decide whether or not Iris gets to rent out the beach for herself for an entire summer.
    Iris: "A contest of physical prowess, like the Space Jams of old! I accept!"
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Camille, although her supposed conspiracies are in fact obvious truths, such as "the world is run by reptile people.'' Averted flat out with Belinda. Belinda herself, was listed as a possible cryptid for whatever reason.

  • Closet Geek: Lily the Coqui. She tried to become a Magical Girl when she was younger and secretly enjoys the anime figurines Camille gives her.
  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: Camille, Grizzelda, Liska, and Teresa, to name a few.
  • College Radio: Geraldine hosts the high school radio broadcast, in which she "pretends to make a student feel special for ten minutes."
  • The Ditz: When observing Grizzelda, it's a wonder how she's made it to her teenage years.
    "Sorry I'm late! There was a puddle in my way and I didn't know what to do."
  • Dumb Jock: Liska, who despite being an accomplished sprinter has to consciously think about moving her feet.
  • Even Nerds Have Standards: Even Camille is shocked at Iris's lack of sports knowledge, believing a bat is needed to play volleyball.
  • Evil Twin: When Violet and Gladys force Parker to retract a story she wrote about Violet being a school bully, she instead prints another story blaming everything on Violet's made-up evil twin, Voilet.
  • Face of a Thug: Violet is constantly mistaken for a bully due to her imposing statue, humorless demeanor, and violent knee-jerk reactions
    • This is partially due to Violet's mother, Lilac, forcing her to dress tough because Lilac hated how everyone looked down on her for being naturally tiny and adorable when she was in school.
  • Faux Horrific: A regular joke. The Halloween special involves an abandoned MP3 player cursed to only have nightcore remixes of anime theme songs played at 150% normal speed.
    Teresa: "That's too scary!"
    Ada: "Don't worry, nightcore isn't real."
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Camille has a tendency to annoy classmates and faculty alike with her constant anime obsession.
  • Hand Wave: There is apparently an explanation as to why all the girls wear different uniforms despite going to the same school, but we never hear it.
  • Hard Work Hardly Works: Calli's advice at being athletic is to "have a freaky nimble frog body." Her advice on not being born without one? "Give up."
  • Hartman Hips: It’s actually easier to list characters who DON’T have this kind of design. Even more extreme on the adults, especially Esmerelda whose hips are by far the widest part of her otherwise skinny body.
  • Hijinx Ensue: There's an epidemic of wacky misunderstandings sweeping the school.
  • Hot Scientist: The best possible description for Alice, the alligator.
  • Hot Teacher: Lily in two words.
  • Hypocritical Humor: The most common joke.
  • Is This Thing Still On?: A weird written version, when Teresa mistakenly writes down a conversation she was having with Ada while writing a school report.
  • Late for School: Everybody except for Grizzelda, Teresa and Camille.
  • Loads and Loads of Characters: The cast is enormous.
  • Lovable Jock: Liska, the plumed basilisk.
  • Maid Corps: Camille at Iris' Mysterious Sand Mansion.
  • Metaphorgotten: Teresa's second line:
    Teresa: "Oh no, its a cyberbully, but it real life!"
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: Liska's volleyball team is initially called "Liska and the Other Two," before being changed to "Team Z Fighters"
  • Narration Echo: The first line in the series:
    Teresa: "I sure am walking to school!"
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Dilys, who is a crocodile, always sporting a crooked grin.
  • Non-Mammal Mammaries: All the characters are reptiles and amphibians, but all sport very clear (and often ample) breasts.
  • Obviously Evil: Iris's vollyball team, Team The Bad Guys.
  • Occidental Otaku: Camille, the Chameleon, who dreams of becoming a magical girl and refers to people using Japanese pronouns. Grizzelda too, though its not her main character trait.
    • Applies to some degree to nearly every character. Most girls demonstrate at least some knowledge of anime or Japanese pop culture.
  • One-Gender School:
  • Reality Ensues: Attempts to make a Sand Toilet causes it to be clogged. Clogged with sand.
  • Rich Kids: All the characters go to or work at a fairly expensive private school.
  • Rich Idiot with No Day Job: Camille uses her vast inherited fortune to finance several anime conventions every year.
  • Saving Christmas: Ada, Teresa, and Camille managed to pull this off. How it went down is unknown.
  • School Clubs Are Serious Business: Yes, having a bad story printed about you in the school newspaper and you too can find an angry mob wherever you go. Conversely, good stories about you will result in unfathomable awards and scholarships
  • School Girl Lesbians: Ada and Teresa are a couple
  • Series Mascot: For whatever reason, Grizzelda became this for the webcomic.
  • Sand X: Everything at Iris's sand castle has the word "Sand" in front of it. They sit in sand furniture, track sand on the sand carpet, each sandwiches, shoot peasents with a sand gun, and bribe the city lifeguards with sandbags of sand dollars.
  • Spell My Name W Ith A The: Iris's volleyball team is called "Team The Bad Guys".
  • Super-Deformed: Mocked when Camille catches a case of the Funko Pox. Symptoms include shrinking of the body, swelling of the head and limbs, and horrible painful itching
  • Sycophantic Servant: This seems to be Trixie's role compared to Dilys.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: Ada, and Alice, in particular. Camille doesn't seem to fit the description though.
  • Straight Man: Ada's typical role, to Teresa's funnyman.
  • Teacher's Pet: Grizzelda is surprisingly up front about her intentions about this. It's not important that the teacher eats the apple, just as long as the apple is displayed prominently in front of the classroom.
  • Top Heavy Girl: Chell, who's shoulders are so massive that she has developed an intense hatred of doorways
  • Tragic Dream: Camille's dream is to become a Magical Girl. Grizzelda's dream is also to become a Magical Girl. Lily tried to make a career cosplaying magical girls, but failed and became a teacher.
