* BreatherEpisode: "Mother's Day", in a sense. Although it's the only episode of the series that doesn't feature any of the show's usual paranormal or criminal elements, it's more a character study involving Eustace and Courage having to deal with Eustace's abusive mother.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: When Nowhere is attacked by a doctor who fired unhappy cannonballs on people, Eustace wasnt affected like anyone else. Instead of becoming unhappy, he was turned to ash, indicating that he couldn't be any more unhappy then he already is. Other episodes hint at his terrible childhood, though no events from it are shown. Apparently his mother and brother were very cruel to him growing up.

* 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. Muriel is really the only person in the family who isn't completely screwed up, if you don't count Courage.

Muriel is really the only person in the family who isn't completely screwed up, if you don't count Courage. Even Fred, Muriel's nephew, is insane and has an almost fetishistic compulsion to shave people. He gets locked up in an asylum at the end of his episode.

** Freaky Fred has uncanny similarities to [[Main/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet Sweeney Todd]]. Both characters are British, specialize in cutting hair, and, of course, are freaky as hell.

** The Hunchback of Nowhere is an obvious nod to Quasimodo, Main/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame. He even owns a set of handbells, which he rings at the top of the farmhouse.

** "The Mask" deals with domestic abuse situations.
** "The Quilt Club" villains use the same tactics as cults do. Start out wanting someone to join your "club," proceed to alienate them from their friends and family, and then proceed to state their group is the 'only'' thing that matters. And it ''works'' on Muriel.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: According to the "Cabaret Courage" episode, if you feel sufficiently disgusted by other people's selfishness, [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs you can become an ulcer in your own intestines, which will grow large enough to engulf an entire theater with them]].

* BlackComedy: The entire animated series itself.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: The Harvest Moon's spirit has black eyes and black lips. However it would be more correct call this Black Scary Eyes since he's not evil, at least not completely.

to:

* BlackComedy: The entire animated series itself.
This show loves using dark humor, especially when it comes to [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Eustace's numerous deaths]] (and to a lesser extent, [[AmusingInjuries the literal pain that Courage keeps going through]]).
