!!'''Bog Monster'''

A creature that one day wandered into the home of Gretchen and Clark's grandparents, so they trapped it inside to stop it from wreaking havoc. Unfortunately, when the two kids are left alone they accidentally set the monster free, and must figure out ''How To Kill A Monster''.

* BigEater: Grandma Rose is, at the very least, smart enough to keep the monster well fed to make sure it doesn't wreck the place. It's even able to eat gumbo loaded with household cleaner and rat poison and live.
* MixAndMatchCritters: In the books, it looks like a gorilla with green fur and an alligator head, while in the TV show it looks like some kind of mutant dinosaur/chicken hybrid.
* NotQuiteDead: The ploy to kill it with poisoned gumbo only stunned the monster for a little while.
* PlotAllergy: To [[spoiler: humans. Just tasting one is enough to make it ''explode''.]]
* SuddenlyVoiced: In the book, it only speaks near the end when it asks if [[spoiler: Clark's a human, because it can't eat humans or it'll die.]]



* FreudianExcuse: The campers screw with Harry and Alex because they have virtually no other way to stay entertained, being trapped at the camp for eternity and all.

Added DiffLines:

!!Cuddle Bears

Mascots of the Cuddle Bear Land amusement park in ''Please Don't Feed The Bears'', where all the employees dress up like Cuddle Bears. However, it turns out they aren't wearing costumes...

* AssimilationPlot: They turn people into Cuddle Bears by getting them to eat Honey Crackers, but the change is only permanent if someone eats an entire bag of them.
* BearsAreBadNews: They actually look more like stuffed animals than real bears, but they still count.
* DistaffCounterpart: To the Horrorland Horrors. Whereas the Horrors operate an amusement park built around scaring people with the intent to kill their guests, the Cuddle Bears run a cutesy themed park with the intent of getting people to join their ranks.
* NotAMask: None of the employees are wearing costumes because they ''are'' Cuddle Bears.
* SugaryMalice: An adorable theme park that's really a front for mutant bears trying to convert human beings to join their race.

A kid who finds a magic potion and instructions on how to fly, and hopes to use his newfound ability to finally stick it to his rival and win the heart of his crush.

* BlessedWithSuck: He discovers that flying isn't so great after all when his fame and glory begin to overwhelm him.
* ButtMonkey: Every time it seems like he's finally going to beat Wilson at something, [[YankTheDogsChain the rug gets yanked out from under him]].
* CelebrityIsOverrated: He purposely loses the race at the end so that he can get his life and friends back, while Wilson is stuck with the burden of celebrity.
* HumiliationConga: Mia's birthday party is this to him - his shorts get ripped during a game of Twister, and Wilson one-ups him so many times that he finally just loses it and pulls a ScrewThisImOuttaHere

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: Sadly, she's little more than another mook for Slappy to boss around in the movie.


Added DiffLines:

* BewareTheNiceOnes: She's honestly one of the nicest and most reasonable figures in the Goosebumps universe. She also has powers that will royally fuck up your life and everyone around you, whether she means to or not.
* BewareTheSuperman: Causing a temporary apocalypse is one of the outcomes if ''she's on your side.''


Added DiffLines:

* RealityWarper: Arguably the most powerful entity in the series, pulling stuff like Turning back time, changing kids into animals, making seemingly everyone on the planet disappear...


Added DiffLines:

* FlatCharacter: She has some of the least motivation,backstory,or personality of any supernatural antagonist. She's only in the first book as a last minute villain, and is never seen or mentioned again.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: It's hard to imagine that Amanda and Josh are protagonists in a ''{{Goosebumps}}'' book due to the fact that neither of them have any of the {{Flanderization}} traits prominent in the other protagonists, especially those with younger siblings. Amanda isn't a StrawLoser who is TheUnfavorite to her AnnoyingYoungerSibling, nor is Josh a raging SpoiledBrat doted on by their parents. This makes more sense when considering that they were the very first protagonists and actually set the mold for the characters to come.
