YMMV / Las Lindas

  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • Pretty much everyone, but Miles gets a special mention. His creator and fans (both hardcore and casual) take a different interpretation of him; being a Jerkass Woobie who constantly receives Disproportionate Retribution; while the other side thinks he's a self-absorbed Jerkass who's always stealing the spotlight.
    • Rachael also gets a disturbing amount of this, usually on the forum, and usually from people who hate her and call her a selfish, heartless whore who deserves crippling injuries, life-threatening illnesses- or even death- and people who desperately want her shoehorned into a dysfunctional relationship with Miles; the latter group insists that she's actually a weak-willed Tsundere who loves Jerkasses and only pretends to love guys like Minos.

  • Base-Breaking Character: Geecku. Almost immediately after her introduction, some people loved her, and others completely railed against her, arguing that she's a one note Genki Girl whose (so far) only main trait is her extensive sex life. Some critics also decry how her suffering no consequences for trashing Mora's kitchen is "unrealistic". Nevermind this series has never been big on realism in the first place.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Inverted. Everything's just going to keep Turning Up Millhouse for Linda and co. karma be buggered, so there isn't a point to reading this series.
  • Draco in Leather Pants: While she does genuinely have her good points (especially after her Heel–Face Turn), quite a few people insist that Alej is the "true" heroine, despite the horrible things she did and how the Sanity Slippage that nearly destroyed her was primarily her own fault.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:
    • Randal is an interesting example. While other characters generate divisiveness and in-fighting over who likes them, whether their actions were correct or understandable, and their interactions with other characters, Randal just... skates on by. About as negative as the reaction to anything he ever does gets is "neutral".
    • Taffy, by a long shot, considering that she's popular enough to win practically every positive poll on the official website regardless of the category, including the poll about which character would you like to see have their own spin off series from the main cast.
    • Tila Sunrise, too.
    • Also Phi.
  • Evil Is Sexy:
    • Alejandra counts for this to a certain degree. Din and Jin have had traits of this, especially when they transform to evade Sarah and Digit's capture for almost killing Digit.
    • Highlighted in the Dungeons And Dames side-comic, where the explicitly evil "ice queen" wears an even more fanservicey version of Alejandra's festival dress.

  • Fandom-Enraging Misconception: Soul Kat has a big Berserk Button related to this trope due to so many people screwing up Davin Preacher's name, instead calling him Devin.
  • Fan Nickname: Chalosan, SoulKat, and ID_Fox are sometimes referred to as either "the Katbox Krew" or "the Big Three".
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: When Chalo published Comic 265, this text was included as part of the update: "And in that fateful day, while in the middle of a lusty dream (I guess), the life of the lil rascal came to a end. Will someone remember him, after he's gone, I wonder? Only time will tell." Within the next week, Chalo's brother died.
    • It was also coincidentally posted shortly after Yoshito Usui was found dead, having fallen off a cliff on September 11th, 2009.
    • During the comic's early days, a number of gags were centered around the farm's well. The same well was later the center of a rather heartrending scene.
  • Ho Yay: The forums turned Randal's apparent metrosexuality into a running gag where he's actually gay...and the favorite fan pairing for him was with Miles. It got to the point where an April Fools strip was produced that depicted the two naked together in bed.
    • Female examples:
      • Played with in the Fanservice arc "Breasts Are the Best" between Taffy Ria and Rachael.
      • Joked about in the main comic here
      • Also, Alejandra and Tootsie's relationship; unlike the above example, this one is actually canon, though it's also played with in "Breasts Are the Best".
  • Magnificent Bastard: Ambar will ALWAYS win. And she will ALWAYS do it with a condescending smile on her face.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Messiah's "Scandalous!", arguably.
    • And Randal's "Fabulous!", inarguably.
  • Moe:
    • Only two pages in, and Phi is already garnering a reputation for being cuter than Digit.
    • Taffy, especially when she's wearing her reading glasses.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Din and Jin trick a mentally handicapped woman (Sarah) into nearly killing a little girl (Digit).
  • Narm: Any comic page that tries to have a serious moment while shoving in as much fanservice per panel as humanly possible.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: Even those who dislike Rachael (grudgingly) admitted that her risking her life to save Digit was a good move.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Mora receives this treatment at times.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Lots of people swear blind that Alejandra is/should be the heroine, despite most of her misery being self-inflicted.
  • The Scrappy:
    • Though opinions vary on Digit, she fits the technical specs down to a T. Sarah wanders towards this territory occasionally, and Miles is this in certain circles or just an out-and-out Author Avatar.
    • Rachael receives a disproportionate amount of hatred on the forum. Amusingly, she's one of the more popular characters outside the forum.
  • Snark Bait: As of late, since the webcomic has now graduated to being a straight-up porno comic (A Patreon-exclusive one, at that), the webcomic's straight-up asking for it now.
  • Strangled by the Red String:
  • Squick:
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Tiare says what we're all thinking. You think Soulkat reads this page?
    • Whoever on the Katbox Krew allowed Miles to get pounded by Rachael for about two pages clearly noticed how much he's hated outside of his devoted fans. From the sheer vitriol that Miles attracts, it's clear that many readers would've liked a dozen more pages of that.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • Last panel (warning: spoilers) of this page. Full stop.
      • Just Mora's starting from here.. As heartwarming as it is that she wants to help her brother and best friend with the webbing, she also running herself ragged.
    • Idward's explanation of his fling with Mora (NSFW warning) was surprisingly touching, considering that his love of Mora had been pretty much Played for Laughs before. At least it helped flesh his character out a bit from a nerdy Stalker with a Crush.
    • Alejandra's growing self destructive state due to her obsession with beating Mora. Thankfully they patch things up.
  • What an Idiot!:
    • Mora could've handled the Love Triangle situation better...
    • Neither Rachael nor Minos handled it any better.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The bright colors and animal characters may make it seem like its age appropriate for everyone, that is until you get to the fifth page....
  • The Woobie: Taffy, in most parts of the comic combined with aspects of her childhood is this in spades.

How well does it match the trope?
