* ChewToy: In most Muppet productions, when he appears, it's to get clobbered or otherwise go through some sort of physical abuse. Usually this is played for laughs, but in ''Film/AMuppetChristmasCarol'', one scene turns him into a deeply tragic character, when after having gone through his usual comical clobberings (delivered by Scrooge), he is [[MoodWhiplash revealed to be homeless and shivering in the cold winter night]].

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Downplayed, but someone called "Dominic Badguy" probably isn't the most heroic character. He manages to persuade the Muppets that it's pronounced "badge-ee".
