* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Is the Great Pumpkin a jerkass genie, putting Linus' faith to test for no good reason? Does it have so high and over-the-top standards, that not even Linus is considered worthy? Or is it as everybody else says: the Great Pumpkin does not exist, and it's just a stupid belief of Linus?
--> '''Linus:''' STUPID? WHAT DO YOU MEAN STUPID? Just wait 'til next year, Charlie Brown. You'll see! Next year at this same time, I'll find a pumpkin patch that is real sincere! And I'll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears! He'll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he'll fly through the air with his bag of toys! The Great Pumpkin will appear! And I'll be waiting for him! I'll be there! I'll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch... And I'll see the Great Pumpkin! Just wait and see, Charlie Brown! I'll see that Great Pumpkin! I'll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait, Charlie Brown! The Great Pumpkin will appear and I'll be waiting for him! I'll be there! I'll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch... and I'll see the Great Pumpkin! Just wait and see!

* SelectiveObliviousness: Linus always point that he's not Sally's "sweet baboo". She simply replies that he's so cute...

* SpellingBee: ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'': One arc involves Charlie Brown entering one. After a bunch of strips involving him practicing for the bee, before he washes out on the first word 'maze', which he spells 'M-A-Y-S'. He was thinking of Willie Mays at the time.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: In an early strip, Schroeder plays a note on his piano, then runs over to Charlie Brown.
-->'''Schroeder:''' Hey, Charlie Brown! I've got "perfect pitch"!!
-->'''Charlie Brown:''' You mean "'''a''' perfect pitch"... Besides, who cares? The baseball season is over!
-->'''Schroeder:''' ''[walking away, annoyed]'' Sometimes I think I should put in for a transfer to a new comic strip!

** Subverted in one series of strips. Sally prepares for a Christmas pageant in which "I come out and say, 'Hark!', then Harold Angel starts to sing." Everyone assumes that she's simply confused by the name of the song... until a kid named Harold Angel actually shows up.

* ButtMonkey: Charlie Brown is the unequivocal epitome of this trope, with a goodly amount of TheChewToy and [[TheWoobie Woobie]] thrown in for good measure. Given the series' focus on neuroses, a good amount of the cast have similar moments, though they struggle to compete with the former.

** If it isn't Charlie, then it's Peppermint Patty, especially in class. The only real difference between them is that at least Patty is TheAce at baseball.

* AudienceSurrogate: Charles Schultz was for a very long time puzzled why he made such an extreme FailureHero in Charlie Brown. Then, one day his son came in after a bad softball game and told him he felt just like Charlie Brown. That was Schultz's EurakaMoment than Charlie was the {{Everyman}}.
