Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Sluggy Freelance by Pete Abrams is one of the longest-running (since August 25th, 1997) and most popular Webcomics out there. It mostly revolves around the doings of a core cast, which conveniently form a Five-Man Band plus two cute talking animals.In its time, it has shifted from being a simple gag comic with rather short arcs to a complex tragicomic tale of friends living in a mad world and trying to find fulfilling lives in them. It has helped create or popularize a ton of webcomic tropes, and it repeatedly hangs lampshades over every single trope it uses, and subverts a few dozen more.Since it has been publishing mostly daily since 1997, there is quite a bit of material to digest, but its continued popularity has never been questioned, even by those who don't make it a daily read. However, it can be a prime source of Archive Panic for newcomers, so much so that even long-time fans can be a bit intimidated by the idea of an Archive Trawl. For new readers, it's probably best to start at the beginning and ignore the current arc until/unless you actually get there.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })As the comic's 20th anniversary on August 25th, 2017 approached, Pete announced that he would try to wrap up most ongoing storylines by around then and would not continue doing the comic in its current form. As it turned out, the webcomic did continue, but with a less frequent and regular posting schedule, as well as a new site layout and a new version of the optional paid subscription system.This comic has a character sheet.

Aliens Speaking English
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1049848f
comment
Aliens Speaking English: Many interdimensional denizens (including humans from the Dimension of Lame, Demons from the Dimension of Pain, and Punyverse people) are English speakers. This is justified in the case of closely parallel dimensions and unexplained in other cases. Then again, one closely parallel dimension differs in the locals speaking Portuguese. Lampshaded or potentially a plot point in the anima arc, where Gwynn finds it odd that everyone speaks English despite so many other things being so different about the dimension they're in, while Riff says that's probably just how parallel dimensions work. Aylee's species and the "mutagenic spore aliens" can also speak English, in both cases justified by their different assimilating tactics of invasion.

Anyone Can Die
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1237828f
comment
Anyone Can Die: There was at one point, a meme on the forum where certain characters were called Not Allowed to Die; when one of these characters was Killed Off for Real during a parody arc, the list was narrowed down to the main characters. Then even some of them... Dead? Alive? Only Mostly Dead? Fate Worse than Death? It got almost to the point of Zig Zagged Trope. The entire purpose of the K I T T E N arcs was to kill off some recurring characters. Red Shirt and Mauve Shirt characters aren't immune to this. Characters can survive a long time then suddenly be killed with little to no warning. Even main characters aren't immune to death, though they are much more likely to come Back from the Dead. Yet other characters can disappear or die only to later be replaced by an alternate universe of themselves.

Sliding Scale of Free Will vs. Fate
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_129074bf
comment
Sliding Scale of Free Will vs. Fate: Fate does indeed exist as an actual force that makes the world go down a certain path. The Web of Fate was created by the God of Time. It defines a set of rules and guides the world down a certain path by subtly manipulating events, to prevent the world from being destroyed prematurely. However, some beings, such as Oasis and dinosaurs are Immune to Fate. Magic in particular is extremely disruptive to its functioning, and can potentially cause The End of the World as We Know It by summoning the God of Destruction.

comment
Totem Pole Trench: "Dr. Bunwig McTwodudes" here, consisting of two adult men (though they sure aren't acting like it) and a bonus rabbit. It Makes Just As Much Sense In Context; they really don't have much of a reason to use a disguise like that. Since they're not short, the "doctor" ends up being very tall, though at least Riff is sitting on Torg's shoulders, not standing. Bun-bun and Riff alone also do it here, and subverted here by Torg and Kiki.

Love Potion: Actually the name of a story arc. Gwynn attempts to fix her relationship with Zoe by using a love potion on the guy she's got a crush on, and then to later use it on Riff to get her back together with him. This being Sluggy and Gwynn being Gwynn, it all goes horribly wrong.

Evil vs. Evil
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1645005b
comment
Evil vs. Evil: The story "Another Year in the Life of a Villain" effectively sees Strom, Dr. Chen, Daedalus, Kusari, and Dr. Schlock all at each others' throats (mostly Schlock's). In fact, ever since taking over Hereti Corp, Schlock versus most of his enemies has been a case of this, including Hereti Corp versus Crushestro, No-Fun Corp, and the Cult of K'z'K. The war between the Vorpyr, Vrykolakas, and Strakoistrat vampires effectively amounts to this, with 3 different factions of parasitic monsters at one another's throats.

Not-So-Harmless Villain: The demons of the Dimension of Pain are comically inept and prone to petty bickering...and are also absolutely deadly, as seen in That Which Redeems. This results in a lot of Mood Whiplash. Dr. Schlock, too. He serves as a Butt-Monkey from his very first appearance, yet can still be a potent enemy.

All There in the Manual: Many storylines almost require an Archive Trawl to understand what's going on, the story "bROKEN", required over a dozen archive links. One of the strips even managed to top that - this one (major spoiler) asks you to check the forums assuming the other Sluggy readers will post them for you.

Unreliable Narrator
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1869b4b1
comment
Unreliable Narrator: Played for laughs when Torg recounts the early part of the Storm Breaker Saga to a bard, but decides to spice it up by adding some material from Army of Darkness. In "bROKEN", we see the aftermath of the dramatic climax first one way. There's also a particular motif throughout the story where someone is always sitting in front of Torg in the same position. Later, however, Torg himself begins to suspect that his memory is messed up and discusses this with a therapist. It turns out that he's been suppressing the memory of what he really saw and we've been shown his "edited" version. The shots of someone sitting in front of him are also part of the unreliable memory — a result of the suppressed memory trying to push through. Let's just say that when he remembers the real version, his insistence that someone is not really dead acquires a much more desperate tone. Played for comedy later on, after Torg's story seemingly causes a bunch of increasingly violent reactions from Sasha. It turns out that Torg is unreliably narrating how he narrated the story to Sasha.

Torg confronts Hereti Corp with Oasis in front of him to talk, believing there is no way they will risk killing Oasis to get him since they've been wanting to control her so long. But readers already know that Hereti Corp was recently given a plan that would allow them to track the source of Oasis's immortality by killing her current body. They shoot Oasis right in the middle of Torg's Kirk Summation. As soon they confirm said kill and that it got them what they wanted, they go all out to kill Torg and his comrades.

Anti-Magic
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_18bf4326
comment
Anti-Magic: A plant-based demon Torg calls Captain Botanical had a magic flower that negated all magic that came too close to it. Gwynn chooses to weaponize it herself as insurance against King Farahn and K'Z'K, due to the fact that her Black Magic is based on a doubly indirect case of Powers via Possession. Hereti Corps's occult division discovered that most forms of magic start weakening as you get further and further from Earth's atmosphere. Magical objects that can store power internally, like Chaz, can last a bit longer, but still eventually require new sustenance.

Title Drop

comment
Title Drop: A couple times - for instance, Torg and Riff were both freelancers when the strip began, and Riff's ID in Paradise is how to spell SLUGGY with a phone keypad. And now with the Mohkadunian God of Power, Sloghy After building quite the reputation for its enigmatic title, it finally came on May 16, 2014: Even earlier, Riff's Hereti-corp codename was "Sluggy". Or, as Kirko points out, "Freelancer Sluggy."*** Furthermore, revealed to be Riff's codename as a freelancer with Hereti-Corp, and Torg's middle name. The connections, if any, have yet to be revealed (as of 11/13/13). It's revealed that the name "Sluggy" is meant to be a rallying cry created by Uncle Time to label and help gather all "potentials" (those with great capacity for stabilizing the web) at the time of K'Z'K's release.

This really applies to the entire cast to some extent. Given the comment made in the first year about Torg and Riff having a tradition of giving each other beer for Christmas, they had to be at least 23 when the story started in 1997. Adding in the fact that due to holiday related events we know that real time and Comic-Book Time roughly line up, that would make them at least 37 in 2011. They haven't noticeably aged at all, much less appear to be approaching 40.

Poor Communication Kills
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1c445e86
comment
Poor Communication Kills: Usually with Reakk from the Dimension of Pain mishearing orders. Also, Drs Bill and Phil from Clonegressive Inc misheard orders from their superior that led to a (small-scale) zombie apocalypse in "28 Geeks Later". And dimensionally-misplaced minions Blinky and Clyde are told to find a village's most chaste maiden to feed to a dragon but mishear it as "chased" so they find the village slut and the dragon gets angrier.

 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1cc2ea8d
comment
Villain Ball - Cleverly averted at the end of "Holiday Wars", where Bun-bun's enemies have concocted a clever Batman Gambit that will force him to use the Deus ex Ovum (push the Reset Button)—but if Bun-bun actually fell for it, his character would suffer Badass Decay. So instead the Groundhog's shadow falls for the scheme instead, and Bun-bun is appalled to find out that because they are linked, the effects of the plan will apply to him as well unless he uses the Reset Button.

Undefeatable Little Village
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_1e01d7cb
comment
Undefeatable Little Village: It's revealed that a small town near the Canadian border ended up playing this role for a crime-syndicate who had, previously, used it as a center for their smuggling-operations. The reason? Knife Nut Tyke Bomb Quasi-Immortal Oasis, whose most recent reincarnation had turned out unusually sane and kindhearted, had made it her Protectorate. Wearing a red hoodie, she turned into the vigilante 'Red Riding Hood' and basically stabbed any criminal who dared enter the city. The syndicate finally sent a top-tier, highly-paid Career Killer - a master assassin. He managed to kill her, but obviously didn't know about the 'Quasi-Immortal' bit, and wound up getting stabbed anyway. He sought alternate employment with great rapidity at that point.

Talking Animal: The rules are inconsistent. A few animals can talk. Many animals cannot talk, but can understand human speech fluently and/or have languages of their own. Some animals are of normal animal intelligence. When Torg meets Frog, he Lampshades this with Arbitrary Skepticism, saying he can accept talking mammals and objects, but not amphibians.

Black Comedy
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_222dc873
comment
Black Comedy: Lots of it. An unimportant (and even, on occasion, important character) dying or being maimed in amusing ways is a constant Running Gag of the strip, and normally horrific situations are often played for comedy. As a rule, anything involving the Dimension Of Pain will involve lots of black comedy - the That Which Redeems arc is notable for causing large amounts of Mood Whiplash by playing the atrocities going on for laughs one second and being quite literally deadly serious the next.

Chekhov's Gun
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_22cf536c
comment
Chekhov's Gun: A common thread in these incidents of the trope is that Abrams often tends to load a bullet in the chamber years before he finally fires it. In some cases, a decade or more has passed before one of these will come into play again. Specifically for Oasis, Chekhov's boom. Remember how many explosions seem to happen around Oasis? All of them were obscure hints to the Wham Episode revelation. One particularly sneaky instance of this happening at what, at the time, the reader assumed was Gwynn activating her powers...was in fact Gwynn fending off a pyrokinetic explosion from Oasis. Bet you didn't see THAT coming seven years ago! From that same arc, those bizarre nightmares that Gwynn had while possessed by K'Z'K way back when turned out to be visions of the future. And one them happened to be of Zoë burning alive... Earlier on, Torg got Lord Torgamous' sword in the Storm Breaker Saga arc years before it would be revealed as the magic sword Chaz and Chaz's origins several years after that, and Hereti-Corp was first mentioned in a throwaway line as the company that cloned Percy the man-eating mammoth years before it was brought up again or linked to Oasis. Dunuloa's hat of magic spell containing eggs. Twice. Though Zoe throwing the egg that binds K'Z'K again at least subverts the expectation of how they come into play.

Your Magic's No Good Here
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_2905fbec
comment
Your Magic's No Good Here: According to Schlock, mortal magic is powered by abusing the god Chronos's Web of Fate. When outside the Fate Web's bounds, such as beyond Earth's atmosphere, magic doesn't work and you have to rely on normal science. Intrinsically magical entities, like magical objects and even demons tend to have trouble surviving and risk perishing when they run out of their internal stores of magic. Having said that, some other dimensions do have other forms of magic that are not powered by the Fate Web.

Older Than They Look: A major reveal here. The details still haven't been revealed. This really applies to the entire cast to some extent. Given the comment made in the first year about Torg and Riff having a tradition of giving each other beer for Christmas, they had to be at least 23 when the story started in 1997. Adding in the fact that due to holiday related events we know that real time and Comic-Book Time roughly line up, that would make them at least 37 in 2011. They haven't noticeably aged at all, much less appear to be approaching 40.

Magic or Psychic?: Psychic powers don't appear much in the main universe, but both magic and psionics exist as separate forces. Magic is powered by mortals abusing the Fate Web to manipulate probabilities. Psionics are generated when the synapses are magnified, such as in the Anima dimension, where electricity has far more effect.

Extra-Strength Masquerade
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_3300f2be
comment
Extra-Strength Masquerade: The fantastic is blatantly obvious and in plain sight all over the place, yet normals never pay much attention to it. At one point, Zoe reports freakish activity at Clonegressive's offices, but the cops are completely dismissive of her claims. All they saw was a biologically engineered spaceship which blew the roof of the building. No evidence of brain eating bugs. They proceed to accuse her of making up stories. It is perfectly normal for Satan to show up on reality TV, and this will be accepted at face value. And yet, on normal occasions, the populace does not believe in demons. Even K'z'k unleashing a massive zombie army isn't enough, with the news quickly dismissing it as mass hysteria induced by Marilyn Mason. The only event that even left a dent in The Masquerade was when Aylee went on a rampage and destroyed an entire neighbourhood, leaving behind an Inferred Holocaust. And even that didn't have any lasting impact. A Hereti Corp goon tells a trio of Christmas elves that she doesn't believe in Santa. Or them. Even as she's negotiating with them.

Empathy Pet: During the Anima arc, the gang gets stuck in a dimension where the souls of all sapient life manifest a symbolic creature called an "anima" representing their current feelings. This makes deception impossible for most people, with the exception of the bedeviled, who possess corrupted animas. As a result, it is one of the friendliest and most peaceful dimensions that gang has ever visited, at least when it comes to sapient folk interactions (the wild natural fauna on the other hand included deadly giant monsters).

Usurping Santa: Bun-Bun spends several years trying to kill Santa every year for the sake of a personal grudge, and figuring out holidays work on "you kill it you bought it" does not dissuade him. In fact he goes on a bit of a holiday killing spree, but he's forced to revive everyone shortly after finally killing Santa.

Torg (as well as the viewers) see Aylee as a good character, and (mostly) not a threat, at least after she undergoes a little Character Development. Riff, however, continues to see her as a threat, much as he sees Sam. Riff's viewpoint isn't all that sympathetic... until this comic.

bROKEN is basically a wham arc. This becomes apparent when Dr. Schlock has Oasis's father-figure executed while she watches helplessly, for no reason other than to show he means business. As the arc ends, Torg is losing his grip on reality and becoming increasingly unstable, Oasis is paralyzed from the neck down in the clutches of HeretiCorp, Aylee is clearly dying from a massive neck wound (she thankfully gets better), Zoë's cursed necklace has been found (which currently has no possible explanation other than her being dead), and Riff is trapped in a dystopian alternate dimension and was seemingly shot down by a squad of armed goons while cradling Zoë's burnt corpse.

Doom Magnet: Most random minor characters whom the gang gets acquainted with die in their current adventures (see the "K I T T E N" storylines, for instance). They really aren't the best people to know. Basically, any character the gang meets either joins the main cast (or at least the recurring cast), or dies; they can't just fade back to obscurity. Subverted by Kent who just vanished after one of the vampire arcs. Other characters also pay in other ways for associating with the gang. For example, Leo ended up getting hurt after he ate food whose weight couldn't be shed, leading him to be unbalanced for his cannon and Broadman lost his job at the radio station after he got blamed for a cow stampede that Riff started.

Keystone Army: Vykro vampires have a hierarchy leading all the way up to the Queen. Should a Vykro master die, most of their underlings will die with them, and the stronger ones will be weakened. When the Queen of them all is killed by the Strakoi, it wipes out all but the absolute strongest, reducing them from thousands to less than twenty.

Magically Binding Contract
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_4353c4b7
comment
Magically Binding Contract: The Harry Potter parody features the Goblet of Flameyness, which like the Goblet from the original book, forms a magically binding contract. It thoroughly lampshades the fact that the original story never actually explains how the contract actually enforces itself and the fact that you can force someone to obey a contract they never signed as the wizards start obeying absurd "contracts" with no protest. Lysinda allied herself with the Strakoi vampires and won a war. The Strakoi decided to "gift" Lysinda with vampiric dominion over the Americas, though this was intended as an exile. They signed a magic contract that forbade Strakoi vampires from entering Lysinda's domain without permission. But now that the new world is better known, the Strakoi seek to use Loophole Abuse to claim it from Lysinda and have been quietly wiping out her circle for this reason. The magic is shown to repulse a Strakoi from coming within more than a few feet of American soil.

Personality Powers: According to a spellcaster named Marco, every spellcaster has a type of magic they are particularly good at. As a result, one's spellbook tends to be filled with spells that reflect their personal strengths. Due to being kind and compassionate, Marco's spellbook is filled with happy and positive magic.

Mirror Universe: The Dimension of Lame was initially portrayed like this in some ways (with a nice Bun-bun and a nasty Kiki) but when it appeared again, this was subject to a Cerebus Retcon (everyone from this universe are Perfect Pacifist People, and the nasty Kiki is an immigrant from a Crapsack World universe).

Our Demons Are Different
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_50ed1af4
comment
Our Demons Are Different: There are many different varieties, each with their own rules. Most of the demons of the Dimension of Pain are implied to be descendants of mortals who were corrupted by the Spear of Callmadar. They are effectively mutants with infernal powers and happen to be Too Kinky to Torture. The Demon King who rules the Dimension of Pain on the other hand, is more like a God of Evil. K'Z'K was originally the god of destruction, but was converted into "merely" an ultra powerful demon. This gave him the power to possess people. K'Z'K's demonic followers are spirits without physical bodies of their own. Instead, they possess mortal bodies and are able to channel their individual powers through them. At one point, Gwynn makes a Deal with the Devil with a group of demon soul merchants. They do not have physical forms, but they do possess the power of a Physical God. Satan has been described as a devil, in contrast to a demon. Gwynn describes a flower monster that enslaves the dead as a demon.

Magic Versus Science
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_511728ae
comment
Magic Versus Science: According to Scholar Soco, Magic is not just poorly understood Science. The Web of Fate is a mystical construct created by Khronos, Father Time, in order to protect the world from the God of Destruction, K'Z'K. It defines a set of rules for the world to follow and guides its path to keep it safe. Science is the art of manipulating the world within the rules the Web defines. Magic is an incredibly dangerous, destructive force, that can bypass the web's restraints. Without magic, K'Z'K would remain Sealed Evil in a Can forever. But with it, he can eventually break free. According to Schlock, the truth is actually the opposite of what Scholar Soco said. Science is the art of causing things to happen using the normal laws of probability, while mortal magic is the art of abusing the Fate Web to tweak those probabilities and make otherwise improbable things reality. As such, all classes of magic reliant on the Fate Web suffer from Your Magic's No Good Here and start losing power when they leave the Fate Web's boundaries, such as beyond Earth's atmosphere or when in other dimension that lacks a Fate Web.

The Strakoistrat originate from Romania. They are Daywalking Vampires, about as tough as Vorpyr vampires, and wield powerful magic. They are possibly the most powerful vampire type overall, but they also lack the Mind Control powers possessed by the other two types.

AlternateCharacterInterpretation

Alternate Character Interpretation: This comic manages to do this by presenting Up... from the balloons' perspective.invoked Torg (as well as the viewers) see Aylee as a good character, and (mostly) not a threat, at least after she undergoes a little Character Development. Riff, however, continues to see her as a threat, much as he sees Sam. Riff's viewpoint isn't all that sympathetic... until this comic.

Bad Santa: Santa Claus is Santa Claus; definitely one of the good guys by default. But when Bun-bun tries to kill him every Christmas and eventually blows up his workshop with an evil Furby, he begins to lose it and gets some evil-looking moments while planning to kill the rabbit. And then he catches an alien DNA virus while hiding from Bun-bun in orbit, and eventually turns into a malicious alien monster along with many of his elves, albeit one still bound to manufacture and deliver Christmas presents. He finally gets better, though. The part in "Holiday Wars" when Bun-bun himself becomes an Evil Overlord by becoming the Anthropomorphic Personification of most holidays including Christmas. Now that is bad.

Big Brother Is Watching: Santa keeps a massive spying agency to determine who has been naughty and nice. Grab-all, a parody of Google, offers free services on which people put their personal information. Grab-all happens to make money as an information broker. Its CEO also enjoys manipulating the search results to influence world opinion. Does This Remind You of Anything? They are also one group of elves in Santa's employ. Hereti Corp has also tried its hand at this with the mascot of their pizza restaurant, Sir Veillance, an Incredibly Obvious Bug in the form of a happy meal toy. Grab-all finds their amateur efforts adorable. But then they conquer Grab-all by eliminating its CEO and forcing its second to sell. They effectively take Grab-all's control to its natural conclusion in order to cover up their own crimes, track opponents for elimination, and promote their own interests. Sterizon, a mobile manufacturer, gives information directly to the NSA. It ends up backfiring when they try to accumulate too much, draining the batteries and resulting in Explosive Overclocking on every single one of their mobile devices.

Heel–Face Turn: Several characters, Sam and Aylee being the most prominent (though it's not exactly clear whether Sam was down with the whole "evil vampire" bit at all in the first place or if he was just pretending). Oasis temporarily becomes a sort-of good guy, at first due a sheer mental and personality breakdown, while the second seems to be an honest try to be a hero, unfortunately marred by her homicidal tendencies. Dr. Steve is implied to have quit Hereti-Corp because of this, and it's revealed Kesandru had pulled one in an alternate universe.

Breaking the Fellowship
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_67d0342c
comment
Breaking the Fellowship: Riff's friendship with Torg and Zoe is utterly destroyed when Riff hurts Sam due to Sam being a vampire. Torg initially decides to banish him, but then decides that Riff's tech expertise is too important in the fight against Hereti Corp. So instead, he gives Riff a death threat, puts him in charge, and leaves the group with Zoë. Bunbun then references the trope, saying that without the combination of Riff's tech and Torg's leadership, they are all doomed. Riff ultimately proves Bun-bun right by becoming Commander Contrarian, and drives everyone else away with his callous and impulsive leadership.

Serious Business: Riff and Torg's opinion of steak. When they find Aylee has ordered steaks that have decayed past the point of edibility, they bury them with full funeral honours. Then when the NoFun Corporation creates stem cell-grown runny vat meat and plan to replace all real steaks with it, Torg interrupts their mission to destroy that project immediately.

Most of the demons of the Dimension of Pain are implied to be descendants of mortals who were corrupted by the Spear of Callmadar. They are effectively mutants with infernal powers and happen to be Too Kinky to Torture. The Demon King who rules the Dimension of Pain on the other hand, is more like a God of Evil.

Ascended to Carnivorism: Played with; the cast always makes sure Bun-bun doesn't get hungry, fearing he might say "What the hell, let's give meat a try." This finally happened in the "Safehouse" storyline when Bun-bun was affected by Hamsternom and started eating (dead) human flesh, but was disgusted with himself afterwards.

Masquerade: Magic and super science exist, but most people don't know about it. Even though there is no organized conspiracy to keep things that way, and the fantastic regularly appears in plain sight. Major corporations and their Mad Scientists regularly play with incredibly advanced technology, but none of it ever gets released to the public and is only ever used for their secret, sinister schemes. Even in the distant future, scientists are still struggling to develop practical wormhole technology, something that's child's play for modern day Riff.

You Can't Fight Fate: Well, technically, you can, but that is generally a bad idea, since protecting the world is the reason Fate exists in the first place. Fate doesn't so much control everyone, so much as offer guidelines. Various things, such as magic, time travel, and dimensional travel can distort the web, risking the world's destruction. Keeping Fate on track is the job of the aptly named Fate Spiders

Grey and Gray Morality: One of Riff's biggest problems with the R&D wars. Way back when, it was easy to tell who the bad guys were. But now, Riff is allied with a vampire and nearly got killed by the girl he liked. There are still some factions that are Obviously Evil, like the No-Fun Legacy Group. But even Hereti Corp, which was clearly villainous in the past, is starting to look more like a case of Necessarily Evil.

Once More, with Clarity!: Occasionally the reader is out of the loop for the real plans. As the final plays are revealed, a few strips will usually be devoted to recapping the planning phase with new panels showing new information. Examples include the plan to rescue Sasha from Monicruel, Riff's last resort when raiding Hereti-Corp (Aylee), and the reveal of the Black-Ops Elves' plan to make Torg their leader.

Arc Words: Whenever Khronus, the god of time, fires someone, they will often go "Freelance". The first was Sluggy, god of power and Bun-bun's past self, who ended up calling himself "Sluggy Freelance" when Khronus exiled him. A former Fate Spider is another former employee of Khronus that goes freelance. Torg and Riff are also freelancers for reasons related to Fate. It is ultimately revealed that "Sluggy Freelance" was deliberately established by Fate as a rallying call, to call all of the heroes of Fate on to one spot in order to oppose the destroyer, K'Z'K. "NOTHING DEAD HERE." Appears in the haunted Kesandru House. Turns out it's one ghost warning another, and the whole phrase was "Nothing dead here leaves," referring to how spirits are trapped in the House and the Well at its bottom. "Nosce te ipsum." "Know yourself," advice given to Oasis that she's completely unable to follow up on because of some programmed mental blocks. And then, years and years in, we find out what it really means. Multiple unrelated characters have uttered the words "What... is... that blade?" upon seeing the effects Chaz has.

Reckless Gun Usage
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_7d34f23a
comment
Reckless Gun Usage: Alt-Bun-bun invokes this trope, enough that Torg yells, "Quit pointing that empty gun at me, it's not really for making points in conversation!" Justified since Alt-Bun-bun comes from a dimension without guns (or much in the way of violence at all).

Chew Toy: Squeekybobo the elf gets abused beyond belief... he somehow managed to come out worse for it when he was resurrected (partly because he was set up to become king of Hell right when it happened). More recently, there's ZombieHeadOnAStick. She's still sentient, but the characters treat her like a toy or tool.

Tsundere: Monica (deliberately, because it keeps Riff off balance). Zoë and Gwynn also qualify very easily (one for each type) during the times when Torg and Riff have had relationships with them. Subverted by the alt-Zoë. Subverted by Sasha. She is very much not, and is easy-going to a fault. But Riff and Torg keep expecting her to flip to tsuntsun, and are kinda creeped out when she never does.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The Fate Spiders' attempts to undo the Great Tangle turned out to only make it worse. More of a Nice Job Breaking It Villain, but Dr. Schlock reinstating Dr. Chen in Hereti Corp, who then takes back his place as CEO and orders Kusari to kill everyone in the building. Riff learns that Torg's attempts to bring down Hereti Corp are likely to result in a chain of events that will turn their world into a replica of 4UCity's world, and it might already be too late to stop it.

Driving Question
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_8151ec48
comment
Driving Question: It's far from the only plot thread in the comic, but probably the biggest is "What is the real nature of Oasis?" (and, ultimately, can Torg and Zoe ever be free of the threat from her). A subtler one is "Why does Hereti-Corp want Oasis so badly?", given that (as several characters point out over the years) though she is a valuable immortal assassin, so is Kusari who they already have.

And Timeless Space, being Exactly What It Says on the Tin, can be accessed from any point in time, simultaneously.

Grab-all finds their amateur efforts adorable. But then they conquer Grab-all by eliminating its CEO and forcing its second to sell. They effectively take Grab-all's control to its natural conclusion in order to cover up their own crimes, track opponents for elimination, and promote their own interests.

Holding Back the Phlebotinum: The technology of 4U city includes Nanites that can completely rebuild a dead person from a backup and portals that can predictably enter any location within any dimension at any time you want. Riff even takes it to its logical conclusion by resurrecting a dead person from a backup obtained via time travel. For obvious reasons, bringing back such technology would break the story, so 4U!Riff, a self-loathing Jerkass forbids his younger Alternate Self from bringing any of it back home. Plus, the Portal Technology is shown to have unbelievably severe drawbacks, namely the near-total obliteration of reality.

Humiliation Conga
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_890d4ef2
comment
Humiliation Conga: The demons of the dimension of pain go through quite a lengthy one. first there were their series on embarassing failures at trying to kill Torg on each Halloween, Lord Horribus' was the worst between his unexpected diahrrea and getting controlled by a magic spell through complete accident. Horribus is then exiled into being a cameraman to a demonic Steve Irwin parody. The other Dimension of Pain demons go through a goofy election period that ends with Terribus selling his soul to a mortal, who actually turned out to be an angel who gradually transforms the Dimension of Pain and its residents into some tastes-like-diabetes Carebears-meets-Barney-land. After finally beating the angel, they all get trapped in balls and get stuck in a chasm. They get out of their balls through an innuendo-laden process that leaves them with high pitched voices and no will to do anything. Then Terribus, disguised as the Demon King, makes them start a church and play Bingo games for crappy prizes. After throwing out Terribus they attack the real Demon King who then makes them go through excercise/excorcise routines... really, after all that, is it any wonder they go bezerk all over the Dimension of Lame?

Cerebus Retcon: All the time. Perhaps the most subtle example is the early story arc Robot Rampage, which at the time seemed like a goofy filler action storyline that didn't impinge on the ongoing character dynamics between Sam, Val, Zoe and Torg that had been established. Yet it gave us Riff's first battle robot, the proliferation of which is forming the basis for the comic's arcs fifteen years later; it involved Bun-bun accidentally killing the Easter Bunny which set up Holiday Wars; after Bun-bun damaged the robot Riff tried to repair it with parts from his DFA and zapped Torg into the Dimension of Pain for the first time, setting up That Which Redeems; and more, all because Riff built a robot to do his laundry and Bun-bun stole it to rob a bank.

Our Zombies Are Different
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_8ba9512b
comment
Our Zombies Are Different: Jane's variety of zombies are immortal beings who rely on regeneration. The catch is that their regenerative state is highly selective and completely dependent on what they consume. For example, eating eyes will keep their eyesight from deteriorating while eating brains will allow them to retain their intelligence and cognitive abilities. In addition, being bitten by a zombie will not turn a person into one. Whenever someone dies in a location under K'Z'K's power, their body rises as what K'Z'K calls a "Deadel". They retain some of their old personality and can potentially even talk, but are essentially corpses who act according to the bidding of their master. Some Technically Living Zombies appear in the Living Conditions arc, when brain eating bugs disrupt the balance between social skills and scientific genius so badly that the newly created super nerds start acting like zombies. There is a type of zombie-like creature referred to as "Ghouls," which are actually aliens, belonging to Aylee's species. In The Road to Bjorkea, Torg and Gwynn discover an even stranger type of zombie created by a flower demon. Anyone who dies within a certain radius of the flower demon gets stuck in their bodies instead of moving on to the afterlife. After unspecified conditions are met (speculated to be exposure to sunlight), their undead corpse starts converting into a plantlike monster, but the victim retains its freewill. However, they become prone to anger. If they are sufficiently enraged, it burns out their soul, making them into the flower demon's slaves and dealing them a Fate Worse than Death.

Good Angel, Bad Angel: Played relatively straight by Gwynn, subverted by everyone else. Especially Riff, both of whose consciences are so apathetic and reticent they forget which side they're meant to take at times. Torg's bad angel is Ax-Crazy, with no subtlety for tempting. Conversely, Zoë's good angel is sufficiently adept at putting her foot in her mouth that the bad angel rarely has to say anything, really.

Timey-Wimey Ball
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_8d23f3a7
comment
Timey-Wimey Ball: While generally glossed over for the sake of a good story, Time Travel has worked differently in different circumstances - "The Storm Breaker" saga resulted in Zoë and Torg actually changing history (which then gave Zoë problems on a history test), but we also learn that Valerie was turned into a vampire as the result of Torg's actions in the past, even though she was a vampire before he traveled back in time. Also, Dr. Schlock from the future watched his younger self die, but he's still around because he's from an alternate doomed future that was averted in the current timeline thanks to some of the technology he sent back in time to stop K'Z'K, as he mentioned in Kiki's Virus, here. K'Z'K eventually reveals that whenever someone tries to change the past, Krohnus's Web of Fate will try to steer things back to the right course. If a timeline is altered beyond the Fate Web's ability to create a Stable Time Loop, it will try to split the altered timeline into an Alternate Universe. Fail at that, and it results in a Time Crash. And Timeless Space, being Exactly What It Says on the Tin, can be accessed from any point in time, simultaneously. One who manages to escape may not necessarily return to the time stream where they originally came from. It's heavily implied that Bun-bun originally came from a time long before the rest of the cast was born. Lampshaded in this comic.

Finger in the Mail: Magon sends Torg a finger that supposedly belongs to Zoe (in fact, he got it from one of the guards), to convince him that Zoe's dead.

Wham Episode
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_8e20979
comment
Wham Comic: The "Vampires" story line was one of the first to shake up the status quo. Sam and Valerie are revealed to be vampires, and the latter's death results in a resolution to the Love Triangle involving her, Torg, Sam and Zoe. 12/06/09 reveals one of the biggest pieces of information about Oasis to date. She's pyrokinetic and many, many of her explosive exits earlier in the series that were previously assumed to be the results of things like Gwynn's magical powers or bombs going off were Oasis' pyrokinetic abilities exploding. bROKEN is basically a wham arc. This becomes apparent when Dr. Schlock has Oasis's father-figure executed while she watches helplessly, for no reason other than to show he means business. As the arc ends, Torg is losing his grip on reality and becoming increasingly unstable, Oasis is paralyzed from the neck down in the clutches of HeretiCorp, Aylee is clearly dying from a massive neck wound (she thankfully gets better), Zoë's cursed necklace has been found (which currently has no possible explanation other than her being dead), and Riff is trapped in a dystopian alternate dimension and was seemingly shot down by a squad of armed goons while cradling Zoë's burnt corpse. The 4U City arc has more than its share of whams as well. Particularly the conclusion of its most recent (and presumably final) segment, where Riff goes back to his dimension stop a similar set of events from occurring in his world which destroyed 4U's dimension. Remember a decade ago, when we briefly thought that Sasha might be a Hereticorp spy? The 8/20/2012 strip shows that we were right all along. The Mohkadun arc is a whopper, revealing the answers to many questions, such as the backstories of many of the gods, including Bun-bun, an Amnesiac God who is one of their number. But the biggest reveal of them all is what will happen if the God of Destruction, K'Z'K, is killed, and by extension the true nature of Sluggy Freelance's endgame. The storylines "Falling" and "The Heavens and the Earth" are one Wham Comic after another, as they finally reveal the truth behind the much-speculated questions of the nature of Oasis and Kusari, the latter's identity, Dr Schlock's Triangle plan, and much more.

Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: A few years into the strip, technology started being referred to in this way (like the Hogtendo SuuWii and Playstayshun 2 consoles). Initially, though, things like Torg's Sega Dreamcast were given their proper names.

Asshole Victim

Asshole Victim: A self-proclaimed pirate who would kill a hobo for 5 bucks comes upon an apparently murdered woman's corpse and gleefully tries to look for a way to profit from it. Said corpse turns out to be a starved vampire who proceeds to feed on and kill him. Likewise, his wife, a saleswoman who in a likely reference to Martin Shkreli, happened to have raised the price of children’s medicine from twelve bucks to one billion, proceeds to become said vampire's next victim. In the "Kitten II" arc, two of the first victims of the kitten attack during the climax are the "Arny" members who betrayed the others.

In the end he's very bent on revenge. 4U!Riff and 4U!Frog, upon finding out that Riff intends to risk his life to try and save a dying 4U!Mimi, laugh and insult him for his Chronic Hero Syndrome, only for 4U!Frog to admit that there is something seriously wrong with them.

Behind the Black: A relatively frequent gag is for characters to need help finding something, only for another character to point out that it's just off-screen. Bun-bun will charge for the information. Except it wasn't actually Bun-bun, and the cost was Torg's soul.

And then Bruno the Bandit refuses to believe that's the final layer and ends up ripping Tom's head off.

By doing things this way, he could control everyone in his company so that no one would betray him. Lau was flabbergasted because it made a very strange amount of sense.

comment
Getting Smilies Painted on Your Soul: Dr. Schlock's ultimate goal is to do this to everyone else, so as to prevent the risk of anyone ever trying to kill him ever again. In the 4U city universe, he succeeded for a while. Torg, Gwynn, and a spellcaster named Marco get stranded in an area under a dreadful curse. The curse magnifies rage and turns anyone who feels enough hate into a monster. When the hate starts becoming too much for Marco to handle, he uses an empathic spell on everyone to counter it for a while.

comment
Time Crash: Normally when a person travels through time, Krohnus's Web of Fate will try to steer things back on course and create a Stable Time Loop to prevent a paradox. Failing that, the timelines will split into an Alternate Universe. But depending on the circumstances, a paradox can cause a universe's safety mechanisms to fail and result in The End of the World as We Know It. On the other hand, overuse of dimension, time, and/or space travel within a dimension will cause catastrophic damage to it, as was the case in 4U City.

Crapsack World: Especially (but not limited to) the Oceans Unmoving storyline. Mohkadun seems to imply Sluggy Prime is like this as well. Reality exists entirely to be destroyed with everyone and everything in it. The stretch of time between creation and destruction is called "the Spark." We're on our seventh spark. And it's been stated that all anyone's been able to do is keep delaying the end of the spark because you cannot have a beginning without an end. Sooner or later, they will fail...and the whole thing starts over again.

The early years of the strip, by contrast, usually mentioned real games like Total Annihilation and Quake.

Word Salad Title
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_9c550e26
comment
Word Salad Title: Very, very much so. Lampshaded a couple times; even the characters don't know what "Sluggy" means. Explained seventeen years into the comic. Sluggy is Bun-bun's ancient name as a god of Mohkadun, and his being cast out from the pantheon is described by him as "going freelance". Strangely enough, Torg and Riff note that they share the name as well. Torg was a freelance Web designer and his middle name is Sluggy. Meanwhile, Riff's codename for HC was Sluggy and his official job title was "freelancer". It is hinted that this coincidence was caused by Uncle Time changing Fate to get all the "Potentials" in the same place at the same time to stop a world ending event. It is unknown why the name and title is associated with such people.

Foreshadowing
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: With hints and clues showing up in disguised form several years before the payoff. Possibly the biggest, most subtle example is the revelation that Oasis is a pyrokinetic, which makes earlier encounters crystal clear hints to this end. Also, if you stop and think, Zoë being burned alive by Oasis had been hinted at since the second K'Z'K arc. A deceptive one was Bert making one of his apparently random crotch-related comments about a prophetic vision, only for the next storyline to indeed end with a giant space-crotch◊ being flown by Torg and Riff fleeing for their lives.◊ A long-range one was that the title of the "Fire and Rain" storyline from 2002 did not only describe the events therein, but also foreshadowed those of "bROKEN" from 2009, as indicated in the annotation to this strip. Even the Research & Development Wars were foreshadowed all the way back at the Clonegressive arc, during 28 Geeks Later. Although the boss's speech implies they are going on at the time, they don't become central until years later. During the second K'Z'K plot, Gwyn's visions are packed full of foreshadowing. Oasis is the puppet. The four fiery pillars are her hair, which foreshadows her pyrokinesis. This immediately precedes Vision!Zoe burning alive, which Oasis later does to her. Riff as a juggler being juggled by (not juggling) three numbered pins, followed by Sasha wearing a three shirt: fans theorised for years this referred to three possible girlfriends for Riff, but years later it was revealed that it was actually foreshadowing that there were three Sashas. And her visions give her the clues she needs to defeat K'Z'K. At the end of the "Dangerous Days Ahead" storyline way back in 2002, Dr Schlock (who had briefly been forced to work for Hereti-Corp at the time) told Torg he only vaguely knew that Hereti-Corp needed to track Oasis in relation to the location of Dr Steve's base. In 2008, when Dr Schlock has taken over Hereti-Corp, he unveils his "Schlock Triangle" plan. At first this seems to be unrelated, but finally in 2017 it is revealed that it was the culmination of the same plan, and it's explained why this was so important: to use triangulation of the signals to find the location of Oasis' real form in orbit.

Filler: Usually of the 'non-demanding art' variety in between major storylines; in the early days this was usually planned stick-figure weeks or guest artist weeks (and these still appear) but there can also be more erratic examples of things like sketches and fanart submissions used unexpectedly when plotting issues, illness etc. delays the main comic.

Macha felt that burying the truth was foolish, but the elders did not see things that way. Elder Maloufo even went so far as to threaten Macha with exile if he refused to let go of their past.

 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_9fb2452d
comment
Evil Is Not a Toy: Torg, maybe carrying around a Zombie Head on A Stick is not such a hot idea. Especially since said head is only mindless while starved. Once fed, it seems she returns to her original, vindictive, cruel self. And now the villain you wronged earlier has been doing just that, and they're about to team up and hunt down your unaware friends. Way to go. Fortunately, ZHOAS is still a giant Butt Monkey, so this doesn't last.

Overly Long Gag: Dr. Viennason explains the dimension of timeless space by illustrating what happens when you run out of time supplies. By standing perfectly still for thirteen panels. Although he breaks it to surreptitiously glance at the camera if you look carefully in the tenth panel. The same trope is used for a whole sixteen panels in this Gofotron battle.

It's Not You, It's My Enemies: On the cusp of beginning a meaningful relationship with Zoë, Torg has to play a psychotic stalker variant of this when Oasis tracks him down. She's in love with him thanks to mind control and she can also fight robots, aliens, demons, and Bun-bun on an even footing. Zoë is, at best, a Badass Normal. In a stunning aversion of the Cartwright Curse Torg normally inflicts on his love interests, Torg says goodbye.

Mood Whiplash: The tone can shift from funny to dramatic to heartwarming to heartrending to terrifying whenever Pete feels like it. "Does this affect our upcoming date?" Note that Sam asks this to Sasha after she survives being shot. This is a perfect example of Sluggy's attitude to this trope: Riff suddenly realises that a mysterious message from the ghost Beth has the last word hidden behind a mirror which dramatically turns the situation upside down and reveals the house is a ghost trap, but in the middle of it Torg also realises that another message from her reading "Torg is great" also had the end cut off behind furniture and actually reads "Torg is a great big dummy". Hunted by undying assassin Oasis, the mood is generally frantic and gloomy. "Nobody saw that."

Naked People Are Funny
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_a58e5ad7
comment
Naked People Are Funny: Two of Aylee's forms have been humanoid (and naked) women. She's shown InnocentFanserviceGirl-ness in both forms, the first time during which Torg just stood back and enjoyed the view, and the second time he downed a large amount of alcohol and taught her about clothing after she revealed her built-in cloak was really wings (accidentally flashing him with disturbingly-human naughty bits in the process). Outside of Aylee, Zoë's clothing usually doesn't survive her transformation into a camel, and one storyline had every scrap of clothing in the house being eaten by evil moths. Not really the nudity itself so much as the reaction to it, but Torg's attempt at having a cohesive flashback while Sasha is changing is too funny. Played straight when he finally does turn his back and Sasha continues to let him think she's changing after she's fully dressed again. He didn't notice that she took off her bra three times.

Status Quo Is God: Subverted repeatedly, especially for a comic of its length. The main cast has moved from living in an apartment complex, to living in an old house, to losing the house and living in yet another apartment, to living in yet another house. When they're not trapped in the past/future or another dimension. Not to mention the fact that the only dating combinations not explored by the human central cast at this point are the ones which involve Ho Yay or Les Yay.

Karma Houdini: Dr. Lorna, Riff's mom, never gets paid back for being a terrible mother and an even worse human being in general. Her son's supposed death was a just an opportunity for her to write a book calling him a horrible person and taking the blame of his supposed moral failings off of herself. Riff is simply someone to show off to prove she's a great mother or someone to mock and profit off of. On top of that, she spends all day berating callers and mocking other people while falsely accusing them of crimes like wife-beating so that she looks like a Saint in comparison and then she brags about herself. People in this comic have been killed for a lot less.

Obfuscating Stupidity: If Crushestro is to be believed, Minion Master has this trait, pretending to be manipulated by Torg while really using Torg to knock down other evil organizations so that Hereti Corp can pick them up. It seems not, as we now know that it's Izzy (at least according to what she said) who is in contact with Hereti Corp. Torg pulls this on Crushestro [[Spoiler:while they're working together as part of the Alliance]]. Crushestro recognizes this and is impressed, but doesn't realize that Torg is doing it also to distract Crushestro from his new teammates.

There was at one point, a meme on the forum where certain characters were called Not Allowed to Die; when one of these characters was Killed Off for Real during a parody arc, the list was narrowed down to the main characters. Then even some of them... Dead? Alive? Only Mostly Dead? Fate Worse than Death? It got almost to the point of Zig Zagged Trope.

And I Must Scream: The Squid-spear made by the NoFun corporation. Not only was it revealed to be sentient after its destruction, it was also innocent enough to empower Torg's sword. Mosp. At first her snakes seem to speak for her, but we find out later that they aren't even aware of her existence, and each thinks the other has been running the body. Torg's sympathy for her plight ultimately triggers a Heel–Face Turn and Heroic Sacrifice.

Dramatic Irony
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_ab5eea65
comment
Dramatic Irony: In the "bROKEN" story arc, Several characters mention Oasis' murder of the "innocent" Monica. Readers, however, know that Monica was far from innocent-she was a member of a K'Z'K cult sent to spy on the gang by her superiors. Of course, Oasis didn't know this-Monica's death was due to her unintentional triggering of Oasis' Berserk Button. It's also an interesting subversion of the Moral Event Horizon. (see the entry for details) Torg confronts Hereti Corp with Oasis in front of him to talk, believing there is no way they will risk killing Oasis to get him since they've been wanting to control her so long. But readers already know that Hereti Corp was recently given a plan that would allow them to track the source of Oasis's immortality by killing her current body. They shoot Oasis right in the middle of Torg's Kirk Summation. As soon they confirm said kill and that it got them what they wanted, they go all out to kill Torg and his comrades.

Closer to Earth: Lampshaded when Torg and Riff get transported to another dimension that turns them into women: Torg immediately feels that he's (she's?) more on top of things, if also more sensitive. However, in the comic itself is also somewhat fused with Only Sane Man - Zoe is definitely Closer to Earth (if allowing herself to revel in the insanity around her from time to time), whereas Gwynn thinks she's closer to Earth but tends to be as childish as a boys much of the time - the arc where they're all living together spells it out pretty well.

Catchphrase
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_b01abe4f
comment
Catchphrase: Riff: "Let me check my notes" and "I'm on a budget here." Bert: "My world is a crotch!" Kiki: "Oooh, shiny!" "Stay good, _____! Stay good!" This one has even become something of a fandom/forum catchphrase itself. Whenever someone does or thinks something morally ambiguous, you can bet someone's going to say it, sometimes even Pete himself, and it pops up in non-comic related conversations occasionally as well. Bun-bun('s switcblade): Ka-click Dimension of Pain demons: "How evil." Chaz, whenever it is activated: "Good evening, master. Whom are we going to kill this eve" Crushestro: "I CRUSH you!" "I'll be good" by anyone who gets threatened with something.

Fate Worse than Death
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_b1346878
comment
In The Road to Bjorkea, Torg and Gwynn discover an even stranger type of zombie created by a flower demon. Anyone who dies within a certain radius of the flower demon gets stuck in their bodies instead of moving on to the afterlife. After unspecified conditions are met (speculated to be exposure to sunlight), their undead corpse starts converting into a plantlike monster, but the victim retains its freewill. However, they become prone to anger. If they are sufficiently enraged, it burns out their soul, making them into the flower demon's slaves and dealing them a Fate Worse than Death.

Loophole Abuse
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_b1dde8fd
comment
Lysinda allied herself with the Strakoi vampires and won a war. The Strakoi decided to "gift" Lysinda with vampiric dominion over the Americas, though this was intended as an exile. They signed a magic contract that forbade Strakoi vampires from entering Lysinda's domain without permission. But now that the new world is better known, the Strakoi seek to use Loophole Abuse to claim it from Lysinda and have been quietly wiping out her circle for this reason. The magic is shown to repulse a Strakoi from coming within more than a few feet of American soil.

Retcon
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_b2280b66
comment
Vrykolakas vampires originate from Greece. They are looked down on by other vampires as trashy and were once kept as slaves by other vampires. Vrykos cannot fly (after a Retcon), but they are pretty good at jumping. They can turn others into vampires just by draining them dry. They are unaffected by many of the usual weaknesses, and have the greatest numbers and unity, but are the weakest vampire type overall. A Vrykolas vampire can become a Vryko master, recovering some independence and increased magical power, by draining dry family members. Vryko masters can enter a mist form and have total control over their sires, who effectively become little more than extensions of their own minds. Two of the Vryko masters seen like to keep attractive sires of the opposite sex. All Vryko answer to a higher Vryko up to the Queen, and should someone higher in the chain be staked, normal Vrykos will perish as well, and even the strongest will be greatly weakened.

Must Be Invited
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_b91eaeea
comment
Vorpyr vampires, such as those from the Lysinda circle, are the oldest variety and originate from Western Europe. They shrivel up and stop moving when they're staked through the heart, but immediately come back to life if you pull the stake out. They Must Be Invited to enter a dwelling and are warded away by holy symbols. Turning a mortal takes a lengthy ritual that involves draining blood out of them over days then having them drink from a sufficiently powerful Vorpyr's blood.

Soul Eating: What brought about the end of what had been a Utopia up until then. In the Anima Dimension, everyone has an "Anima", an Empathy Pet produced as a psychic projection. Someone figured out how to harvest other peoples' animas to augment their own psychic power and took over. The resulting psionic war killed off most of the population. One of the few survivors actively hunts down every other survivor she can find and continues to devour them.

In the "bROKEN" story arc, Several characters mention Oasis' murder of the "innocent" Monica. Readers, however, know that Monica was far from innocent-she was a member of a K'Z'K cult sent to spy on the gang by her superiors. Of course, Oasis didn't know this-Monica's death was due to her unintentional triggering of Oasis' Berserk Button. It's also an interesting subversion of the Moral Event Horizon. (see the entry for details)

Sliding Scale of Continuity: Level 5 (Full Lockout). Creator Pete Abrams recently acknowledged the phenomenon at this stage of the comic's lifespan and narrative density. He still tries to link back to details in previous strips, but now that it's become necessary even in filler arcs, it's extremely daunting to new readers.

Informed Attribute: Parodied with Torg and Riff's "tradition" of exchanging a beer every year for Christmas/Hanukkah. They have never yet managed to pull it off without something going wrong — it's almost Sluggy's equivalent of Peanuts' annual gag with Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown: In 1997, Riff substitutes hot sauce for beer and doesn't tell Torg until he's already chugged it; In 1998, they're trapped in a pyramid so instead get each other mummy body parts and try to make that a new tradition; In 1999, they instead get each other six-foot sub sandwiches, which Torg then tries to make another tradition; In 2000, Riff doesn't appreciate his tequila beer because Zoe (transformed into a camel for the first time) spat in his ear; In 2001, Riff gets Torg a beer from 1837 from a brewery that only had one production run, and Torg ends up with his stomach pumped; In 2002, Riff and Torg do a "Gift of the Magi" Plot spoof with clothes, with Torg saying "And we normally get each other a beer every year, so I knew this would be a total surprise"; In 2004, Torg gets Riff a terrible marshmallow beer because he's just come back from the Dimension of Lame and didn't have much time to shop; In 2006, before they can drink from their beers, Torg is knocked out by a flying Hogtendo SuuWii remote that Gwynn lost her grip on; In 2008, Riff's upset because Torg didn't get him a beer in return, even though he got him a share in a fully functioning spaceship. In 2010, Torg poignantly leaves a lone beer for Riff, who had vanished in his robot explosion and was lost in the 4U city dimension. In 2011 there's a "Beer Every Year" themed set of Sluggy Pawnz; The joke was not used in 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009 or 2012.

Spoonerism: The source of many a Punny Name. For example, in the Punyverse where everyone has a food pun based named, the leader of the Zorgon race is Zorgon Gola (Gorgonzola) and Riff, Torg and Zoe play a game called Kettlers of Satan.

Hope Spot: Riff is still alive! ...Seconds before he's gunned down by a group of armed soldiers. It was extended a bit as he briefly fought against the drug control, but ended when he believes that he is the evil dictator, not knowing that Hereti-Corp has stolen his plans for the Dimensional Flux Agitator.

Ghost Planet: The Dimension of Pain, where the original inhabitants were wiped out. There are still plenty of demons though. In the Anima dimension's distant future, it is mysteriously empty of living people, the evidence suggests that everyone's physical bodies died a few centuries ago, and robots continue to maintain everything on autopilot.

comment
Misblamed: A lot of the fanbase didn't like what Ian Mcdonald did with his "Meanwhile in the Dimension of Pain" strip and would regularly complain about it. Mcdonald has said he basically started ignoring the criticism when those same fans bashed Mcdonald for a 'Meanwhile' strip that had been drawn by Abrams, reasoning that if they couldn't even tell the difference between his art style and Abrams', they weren't worth listening to.

Shout-Out
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_c75df49a
comment
Shout-Out: Lots. Most notably, Torg is named after Torgo from Manos: The Hands Of Fate, Riff after Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Aylee's first form was nearly a blatant rip-off of a Xenomorph, and there was this one time Bun-Bun burst out of her chest. The "Torg Potter" arcs, aside from the obvious, have a game played on broomsticks called "Quidsatz Haderach", the Snitch is the Buall'dib, and one of the positions is "Harkonnens" The Grays in the Oceans Unmoving arc are all named after members of The A-Team. The one called B.A. even went the extra distance here. An alphabetically named virus that rapidly mutates a normal human into a monstrosity with eyes in the wrong place and a taste for human flesh. Sound familiar? Curry is not inherently evil. Pete has also confirmed that the setting of Oceans Unmoving was based off of both Spelljammer and the entirety of Dungeons & Dragons. The character of Berk and his speech patterns are both very inspired from the Planescape setting. "Berk" itself roughly means "clueless". Coupling`s "Nine and a Half Minutes" seemed to be the inspiration for the "Ten Minutes at a Party" storyline; a later reference to "the giggle-loop" confirms Abrams watches the show. A reference to Wakko's "Potty Emergency!" was made by a NoFun executive. Alt-Riff quotes (with a twist) the Dread Pirate Roberts : The "Meannwhile..." strip by Ian Mcdonald was also fond of this, in particular the Angel being defeated thanks to Peanuts` Lucy-pulling-the-football-away running gag. Another, more subtle, note to Peanuts came when Kiki gave an excited, near-illegible Wall of Text summary of what had happened to Bun-bun (who was flying a World War I fighter plane at the time). It turns out he was shot down by a dog on a flying doghouse. The Greys, in addition to being a loving tribute to XCOM, have their own language's term for "stick a rake in it": "bantha poodoo". To Discworld in this strip.◊ One filler arc features, in addition to a number of shout outs to fantasy and a plot parodying The Hobbit a pair of minions named Blinky and Clyde, one of whom is trying to save a girl named Pinky. Notably, Pinky is a double shout-out, as she is quite clearly a anthropomorphized Pinkie Pie, and the tavern at the town she is called "My Little Prancing Pony", which has an image of pony!Pinkie Pie on its sign. Father Time hates Dutch people. Hmm, where have we seen this before? To blow up a Le Snootier, Herreti-Corp brings a bomb in a box labelled "Someone set up us the bomb". Half of this strip is paraphrased from a classic scene in Aliens. Dr. Schlock parodies the refrain of Billy Joel's "Always a Woman" in the last panel of this comic. Torg spoofs the Soft Kitty Song here.

Superhero Origin: Parodied/deconstructed in the "Stick Figure Tales of Cotton" filler arc with the flashbacks to the origins of Torg's rabbit-themed identity "Captain Hippity" and Riff's "Science Boy". Torg is bitten by a radioactive rabbit and becomes..."Lost All My Teeth And Hair Man" from the radiation poisoning, before being cured and given super powers by aliens. Riff's parents are killed and he becomes "Orphan-Boy, with the proportionate strength of someone with no parents!" before being given a bazooka and scholarship to MIT by the same aliens.

The incident is a very public "Zappo!", causing the bus to vanish in front of plenty of eyewitnesses and with plenty of evidence left behind. But using their control over social media via Grab-all, a Google parody, they completely silence the matter by framing anyone who buys the story as a loony Conspiracy Theorist.

Cerebus Syndrome: Perhaps the first webcomic to undergo this process. "Vampires" in 1998 was the first storyline with danger that was played seriously, a few strips that didn't end with a gag, and someone dying and it not being treated as a joke. Since then, the comic has continued to develop darker and more epic storylines amidst all the silliness.

There Are No Coincidences: Stated outright. The Fate Web manipulates probability to nudge the world along a path and keep the world safe. As a result, many coincidences occur, especially in the vicinity of potentials. Schlock takes a strong interest in magic and the Fate Web when he notices that suspicious coincidences have both helped and hurt him at key points.

In Spite of a Nail: Meddling too much with Time Travel will result in the altered timeline splitting off into its own Alternate Universe. But the amount of tampering the Web of Fate can sustain a Stable Time Loop with before needing to do so is fairly significant. Even when K'Z'K alters the timeline to influence Riff's antagonistic father into enslaving followers via human trafficking, the destroyed lives are not enough to have any real impact on the flow of time. "Mortals think they're so important. Butterfly-flaps-it's-wings my ass! Time ain't that delicate."

Loads and Loads of Characters: God save us... In terms of supporting cast, Sluggy Freelance is to webcomics what The Simpsons is to animated TV. Just listing the normal cast takes long enough. You also have clones, various versions of characters from the same universe, alternate universe versions of characters, characters living in the past, characters from the future, characters from future alternate universes, characters who technically don't exist, at least three separate pantheons of gods...

The Unpronounceable: K'Z'K; he mostly gets called "Kizke". Also parodied; one of the aliens goes by the name "Face" because he claims his birth name is unpronounceable to humans and the high frequency could possibly break their recording devices. It's Steeeeeve. And then played straight again when Murdock's real name does just that. It turns out that K'Z'K's unpronouncability was actually designed as a way to prevent it from gaining power, its real name is the far more pronouncable "Kozoaku."

The Chessmaster: Subverted (complete with visual aids) at one point, and played straight several other times. Holy shit yes. BLAM! What makes the comic so interesting is that every major player, whether good or bad or any where in between, is a Chessmaster from Torg to Riff to Will to Chilus to K'y'k to Doctor Schlock to Dr. Chen to Squishydodo to Strum "Strawman" Nash to Tempest to the Fate Spiders and countless others. No one really grabs the idiot ball, usually. It is more of a gambit pileup that's been running the game between them for YEARS.

 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_d9c4365c

Reset Button: An epic one. Torg spends literally years being in love with Zoë with her not reciprocating. Then finally she realizes she loves him too, and wants to tell him. Then the mecha she is in is blown up by Oasis; she and Riff do an emergency escape to another dimension; Riff loses sight of her and thinks she's dead, is later told she's in endless agony, and finally realizes her body is healed by nanites, but not her brain, making her a vegetable. Finally, Riff returns to his own dimension and pulls off a Batman Gambit to return Zoë and restore her memory, but it is restored to the day before she realized she loves Torg. Aaand we're back to square one. Also, the Deus ex Ovum is this in-universe: it restores all the holidays to their default Anthropomorphic Personification and revives any that have died.

Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_da163a71
comment
Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: The Sluggyverse's usual technology levels are similar to ours. Extremely advanced stuff inconsistently appears in everyday life, but for the most part, the Awesome, but Impractical toys of Mad Scientists are only ever employed by shadowy corporations for their sinister schemes. However, in several Alternate Universes, this rule does not apply. The Dimension of Lame's Riff's inventions always work, and rather than inventing weapons for himself, he made inventions to improve peoples' lives, such as aiding those who cannot walk. In the 4U City dimension, Alternate Riff doesn't trust the really advanced portals in anyone's hands, but several of his other inventions completely altered the course of his world's history. His DFAs were weaponized by Hereti Corp and unleashed a cataclysmic end to a terrible war. 4U city has also made full use of other technological developments that technically exist in the main universe, but were never properly exploited. Examples include Nanites and AI.

Assimilation Backfire
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_dac3d8cf
comment
Assimilation Backfire: The Borg Expy in an early strip ran into this problem after assimilating Riff and Torg. "Since you have come among us, all we have done is drink fermented hopps beverages and ogle scantly clad females. This has seriously jeopardized our goal of the all-collective. We've never had to do this before... We are kicking you out." Done again with Dr. Crabtree, the Nanite Queen, who can assimilate people's knowledge by eating their brains... but gets infected with Sam Sein's stupidity when she tries it on him, and when she eats Christmas Elves' brains she starts unconsciously frolicking everywhere while singing "lolly la!"

Red Herring
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_dbca2c99
comment
Red Herring: Often, due to the serpentine plots. Early on, the viewer was meant to think that Bun-bun had been killed when Santa blew up his booby-trapped workshop, and his vengeful spirit had come to the Dimension of Pain. It turned out that the spirit was in fact the elf Mr Squeekybobo, who had died in the same attack, and Bun-bun was in a cage somewhere with Laser-Guided Amnesia. The dimension where Torg flees with the giant Aylee is infested with zombie-like creatures who, we are led to believe, are the result of Kesandru's Deal with the Devil Rithuly. The Reveal has Torg realise that they have nothing to do with Rithuly - they're Aylee's race. The letters 'ROKEN' behind Oasis in the photo made most readers think it was a cutoff of 'BROKEN', which was indeed the name of a later arc...however, said arc revealed (in a slight cop-out) that it was in fact a cut-off of PYROKENETICS - misspelled by an illiterate sign painter.

Immune to Fate

Immune to Fate: Most things in the world are bound to the Fate Web, which guides events to prevent the world from being destroyed prematurely. But not everything is subject to this. Oasis is outside of Fate, and magic, dimensional portals, and time travel are highly disruptive to its functioning. Dinosaurs exist outside the web because they existed before it, which is why Khronos has set into motion a plan to drive the remaining dinosaurs he missed extinct.

Humans Are Special: Mohkadun calls this out when the story reveals that humans, for all their failings in being tricked by K'Z'K, are also the only ones who've been able to stop K'Z'K from destroying reality. They are also constantly shown defeating unstoppable foes that are expected to kill them. Basically, they're always being underestimated by gods and reality eaters, which always gives them a chance to win.

Please Put Some Clothes On: In this strip, Sasha casually takes off her clothes in front of a hot and bothered Torg. "I'm looking the other way while you get naked but throwing your bra at my head is not helping!" And in the aftermath of the "Aylee" chapter, when Aylee reveals that a) that's not a dress, it's her wings wrapping around her, and b) she's become so human she now has "human female naughty parts" underneath.

Our Gods Are Different
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_e1ecdac3
comment
Our Gods Are Different: Multiple pantheons have appeared, but the one most central to the story are the gods of Mohkadun. The One created Prozoato and Kozoaku as the gods of creation and destruction respectively. God empowered one of Prozoato's creations, Khronos, to become the Anthropomorphic Personification of time to stop Kozoaku from destroying Prozoatu's creations before he is meant to. Khronos empowered several additional mortals into godhood to serve as role models against Kozoaku's influence. It has been heavily implied that Bun-Bun is actually an Amnesiac God from this pantheon, the God of Power. The gods of Mohkadun vary greatly in magical power, ranging from merely superhuman strength and endurance to the power to cause Time Stands Still or a massive Zombie Apocalypse. They do not age and are very tough, but they can be killed. But only by an empowered Chaz. Eventually, most of the gods of Mohkadun are Depowered into Holidays. While they remain The Ageless, it is entirely possible to kill them by ordinary means, and they lose most of their powers. The Dimension of Pain features the Goddess of Goodness and the Demon King.

Many storylines almost require an Archive Trawl to understand what's going on, the story "bROKEN", required over a dozen archive links.

Garden of Eden: When Torg and Aylee are staying in another dimension while the media coverage of the latter dies down, the locals have a number of mountain-based gardens, the largest of which is named Eden.

Vampire Variety Pack
 Sluggy Freelance (Webcomic) / int_ee6e6038
comment
Vampire Variety Pack: Vorpyr vampires, such as those from the Lysinda circle, are the oldest variety and originate from Western Europe. They shrivel up and stop moving when they're staked through the heart, but immediately come back to life if you pull the stake out. They Must Be Invited to enter a dwelling and are warded away by holy symbols. Turning a mortal takes a lengthy ritual that involves draining blood out of them over days then having them drink from a sufficiently powerful Vorpyr's blood. Vrykolakas vampires originate from Greece. They are looked down on by other vampires as trashy and were once kept as slaves by other vampires. Vrykos cannot fly (after a Retcon), but they are pretty good at jumping. They can turn others into vampires just by draining them dry. They are unaffected by many of the usual weaknesses, and have the greatest numbers and unity, but are the weakest vampire type overall. A Vrykolas vampire can become a Vryko master, recovering some independence and increased magical power, by draining dry family members. Vryko masters can enter a mist form and have total control over their sires, who effectively become little more than extensions of their own minds. Two of the Vryko masters seen like to keep attractive sires of the opposite sex. All Vryko answer to a higher Vryko up to the Queen, and should someone higher in the chain be staked, normal Vrykos will perish as well, and even the strongest will be greatly weakened. The Strakoistrat originate from Romania. They are Daywalking Vampires, about as tough as Vorpyr vampires, and wield powerful magic. They are possibly the most powerful vampire type overall, but they also lack the Mind Control powers possessed by the other two types.

Distracted by the Sexy: Seen in full effect during the introduction of Oasis in the appropriately named Game Called on Account of Naked Chick. More recently, Torg has trouble completing his boobs... I mean his story because Sasha is taking off her shirt.

comment
Expendable Alternate Universe: Averted, with most characters having Alternate Universe versions and tragedies happening to the latter often being just as serious and dramatic as something happening to the original. Indeed in the case of some minor characters, their Alternate Universe versions sometimes get more development than the prime-timeline ones.

Never Found the Body: Oasis was played like this at first. After she resurfaced unexpectedly and apparently died again without her body being found, the main characters hung a lampshade and the unspoken consensus was that they hadn't seen the last of her.

Running Gag: The Long Runner status has given rise to lots of these. "Spleen!" (at least for a while). Torg's "alternate" names: the vampire LeTurg, Turg Le Turgturg the Swedish web design guru, Sir LeTurg the human warrior in Years of Yarncraft, and his ID in the 4U dimension is LETURG on a phone keypad. "Run away!" (especially from Torg.) Torg had a coupon. Riff and Torg exchanging 'a beer every year' for Christmas / Hanukkah as a tradition, yet they never manage to pull it off without something going wrong.

Heroes Want Redheads: Subverted. Oasis is the only major redhead in the strip, and though Torg's initial reaction to her was in those lines, now it is generally and for very good reasons "RUN. LIKE. HELL." It's more a case of Redheads Want ''Heroes''.
