* BusyBeaver: Explored in the episode, "A Beaver's Tale"; Nowhere is suddenly flooded from a giant dam being constructed by a disgruntled beaver who won't stop until the dam is completed. Courage unwittingly discovers the beaver is actually more interested in playing music, but the beaver shows Courage his childhood of how his father disapproved of him playing music, and instead, wanted him to grow up to be a construction worker like him. In the end, however, Courage presses the beaver into giving up construction to follow his dream, and the dam is destroyed.

** The two Half Hour episodes - "The Tower of Dr. Zalost" and "The Mask" - deviate dramatically from the usual MonsterOfTheWeek formula, dealing with much more realistic horrors such as depression and abusive relationships respectively.

* BigScrewedUpFamily: The Bagges who are a whole villainous family of abusive jerks. Ma Bagge was not only a bully but also a CorruptCorporateExecutive who threatened lives, Horst hunted sentient deers and threw goats of a cliff to make bucks and Eustace became as ready to do any dirty work for enough money as the rest of his family. Ow and he also started hunting deers to prove himself to Horst.

* ConspicuousCG: The carriage from the mattress episode, the anvil from the precious duckling episode, and the rug in the living room. Most notable in "The Queen of the Black Puddle" where the Black Puddle Queen bumps her head onto the rug when trying to catch Courage and Eustace. Also King Ramses. "Hard Drive Courage" takes it to an extreme by having Courage animated in CGI when he first enters cyberspace- though here, it's justified: he's rendered in computerized graphics [[ShapedLikeItself inside said computer]].

* EvilPuppeteer: In "The Great Fusilli", the sound of CreepyCircusMusic alerts the Bagges that their house has been visited by a magic stage run by a WickedCultured crocodile named Fusilli. Fusilli encourages Muriel, Eustace, and Courage to perform on his stage, eventually convincing them to [[DealWithTheDevil sign a contract to become full-time actors]]. Things only get worse when Courage goes backstage and discovers many lifeless puppets - and he and his owners are next! [[spoiler:Courage goes back to the stage to warn them, but he's too late - letting out a triumphant EvilLaugh, Fusilli uses his stage to turn Muriel and Eustace into puppets. Fusilli is eventually HoistByHisOwnPetard when he falls onto the stage and is turned into a puppet himself, but Muriel and Eustace are still stuck as puppets.]] It's worth noting that many fans find this to be one of the show's most disturbing episodes, leading to many creepy fan stories and theories.
