* EasyAmnesia: Taken to its logical extreme in a story where some characters need Groo to keep his memory while others need him to forget. They literally turns Groo's memory on and off by hitting him repeatedly on the head.

* CoolBoat: From issue 57 of the marvel run we got the ship Chinampa which is big enough to be a island in its own right. What makes it more epic is that Groo was captain for a time and was able to accidentally help the crew immensely, even when he took the plank and made it look like the ship sank (Which was impossible due to Rufferto.) It was close enough to land that it turn the massive ship to its own island. Groo never knew that the entire inhabitant were extremely grateful and not only saw him as there hero, but also was ready to name there new island after him.

* BuriedAlive Happens in issue 110 of the marvel run. A greedy king fake his death via a potion to leave the city cause he hates how poor it is and the people whining about Isagul (An undead monster attacking the village), even reminding his advisor only he know where the royal riches are. Unfortunately for him. Groo used all the casket to trapped Isagul to just buried guy in the desert. The royal advisor began digging through the desert to find the king since he knows where the royal treasure was with the aforementioned king wondering what taking them so long.

** Invoking this trope for material gain doesn't work either, as demonstrated in the recent ''Friends and Foes'' arc. Captain Ahax concocts a scheme to get Groo to sink his ship so that he can claim the insurance money. However, the ship arrives safely at port, leading to Ahax's arrest and financial ruin. Only afterwards does Groo accidentally sink the ship.

* DelayedReaction: Sometimes delayed for months. "What did he mean, 'slow of mind'?"

-->'''Someone:''' Groo, you can not understand this, since you are slow of mind.\\
'''Groo:''' ''[pages later]'' ...What
he mean, 'slow mean "slow of mind'?"mind"?
** In one extreme case, he utters this phrase in response to a ''childhood flashback.''

* Sealed EvilInACan: Groo does it himself to a creature called a Isagul. He tried killing it but it came back to life, he tried trapping it in a nailed shut wooden casket (It broke free). So he went overkill with trying to trap it in the matryoshka doll of sealed evil stuff

--> '''Groo''' : "Ah... He is dead again! This time I am making it permanent! first I wrap you in the cloth of the dead... then I put you in a casket... (Started hammering)... But since you escape from one casket, I put the casket in another casket... And then that casket in another casket... and so on and on... (finally) I do not know how many that is but he is inside the many coffins we made for the king... Now, we put all those coffins into the sarcophagus."

* VitriolicBestBuds: Well best buds be stretching it but the ones who can tolerate Groo the most are Sage, The Mistral and (eventually) Chakaal mostly due to the fact they know Groo means well but his stupidity is quite dangerous.
