- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming - This moment between Pecker and Daxter in the third story:Pecker: Why did you save me and my family?Daxter: ...it's because you're my friend, and that's what friends do.Pecker: *startled* ...Thank you.
- Jerkass Woobie - Jary, though the "woobie" part was applied retroactively, and he's outgrowing the "jerkass" part.
- Like You Would Really Do It - Subverted: The readers really did think that Jary had been Killed Off for Real.
- Tear Jerker - Most of the Meaningful Funerals, especially the one-shot that focused on Samos's death, and was dedicated to the memory of a real-life person.
