- Epileptic Trees: Happens frequently. Notably over Assistant's name and the Dark Overlord's identity before The Reveal.
- Foe Yay: Between Wallis and Purple. Turns out, the Foe Yay is real, as Wallis and Purple are revealed to have a history together. Wallis is still confused as to why Purple broke it off with him.
- Les Yay: Some between Assistant and Seaweed, as well as Assistant and Nim.
- Moral Event Horizon: Cakegirl crosses it when she kidnaps Harold, crashes Wallis's magic show, and bends Seaweed's wand to the point of almost breaking it.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Some people's reactions when Word of God restarted the comic and changed Assistant from a boy to a girl. The protests have mostly died down now, though, as people came to like fem!Assistant.
