  • Anvilicious: Being well-endowed is nothing to be ashamed of! Granted, Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped, but the comic had already covered the topic in-depth with Monica. When Atsali started to angst about her figure with the people around her ranting arguments that had already been covered before, it felt like overkill.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Castela. Either she's an adorably innocent little girl with an intriguing backstory, or she's the most annoying Bratty Half-Pint ever to appear in fiction.

  • Broken Base: The shift from Monica's story and the supernatural slice-of-life theme the comic had been carrying so far to the teenage antics of Atsali and her entirely new cast of supernatural high school buddies has bewildered longtime readers.
  • Hype Backlash: So this is the comic everyone's been talking about, huh, let's check it ou—why is everyone talking about bras?
  • Nightmare Fuel: Anything to do with the boiler room and Shelly's demon. Especially this sequence. This is exacerbated by the fact that at the end of the last page, Tina's hand is drawn so that it follows you around the room — no matter where you're standing, she's always pointing at the reader.
    • What Jin, Bud, and Brandi endured to become the Chimera. Those poor, poor girls.
    • The recently revealed rape backstories for Monica and Georgette. Monica in particular had to endure her abuse while being imprisioned in a mental institution.
  • Les Yay: And the pixie with the rack puts up with you how? The speaker is essentially Shelly's subconscious. Who refers to Monica as "the pixie with the rack." Yeah.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: As of 2013, the focus of the comic seems to be shifting more towards Katherine, Atasli, and Castela.

  • Strangled by the Red String: Many readers feel this way about Monica and Georgette getting together due to their shared Rape as Backstory. Making it worse is the fact that Monica dumped her longtime Understanding Boyfriend Kevin for someone who hadn't appeared in the comic for years. But nope! The writer insists they "belong together", so nevermind all that!

How well does it match the trope?
