* {{Revenge}}: [[spoiler: The entire reason Curse of Chucky takes place]].
** Also, a big part of Chucky's motivation in the original ''Child's Play'':



** ''CurseofChucky'' attempts to take the series back to its roots: whether it succeeds or not is a matter of opinion.

** Glen in ''Seed''... although a really weird one. [[spoiler: Nica at the end of Curse of Chucky.]]
** [[spoiler: In ''Curse of Chucky'' Andy points a gun at Chucky before he even manages to get out of the box he was shipped in.]]
* UnholyMatrimony: Chucky & Tiffany.

** ''Cult'' however (while indeed much darker than the series has been lately) still seems to put the films back en route to the comedy genre, even going so far as to have Chucky make a pop culture reference to the cancellation of the tv series ''Hannibal'', while its balance between BlackComedy and dark horror brings the second film's tone in mind.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Andy doesn't return after the third ''Child's Play'' movie. The movie ends with him being brought in by the police for questioning. Same thing applies to Tyler as well. [[spoiler: ''Curse of Chucky'' however, shows that Andy seems to be doing just fine.]]

* InappropriateSpeakAndSpell: Chucky the doll [a battery-powered, talking [[{{Irony}} "Good Guy"]] doll] is possessed by the spirit of a serial killer. One can only imagine the inappropriate things he was saying to Andy, but onscreen we see and hear him [[ClusterFBomb going berserk]] when Andy's mom threatens to throw him into the fireplace if he didn't talk (thereby proving her suspicion that the doll was sentient).

* WhamLine: This shocked many audience members the first time.
--> '''Mrs. Barclay:''' I said talk to me, dammit, or else I'm gonna throw you in the fire!
--> [[spoiler: '''Chucky:''']] '''YOU STUPID BITCH, YOU FILTHY SLUT! I'LL TEACH YOU TO FUCK WITH ME!'''

* [[spoiler: TheBadGuyWins: Chucky's plots to transfer his soul into another body and get rid of his enemies always ended in colossal failure until he finally wised up in Curse of Chucky, where he manages to off everyone and successfully pin everything on Nica Pierce. Then he comes back in the sequel and not only offs everyone at the mental institution she's in, but he manages to transfer his soul into her and (using a voodoo spell he got off the internet) can now split his and Tiffany's souls into as many vessels as they want. Oh, and his arch-nemesis Andy Barclay is now locked up in the facility as well.]]

** The second film depicts Chicago to be a CrapsaccharineWorld, that despite the bright (if somewhat eerie) look of the film, it's actually still an unkind city that not even Andy is safe from other than Chucky (the aforementioned toy company run by cold-hearted {{corrupt corporate executive}}s including one SmugSnake [[YourCheatingHeart cheating on his wife]], an elementary school where it's implied {{sadist teacher}}s are authorized to inflict [[WouldHurtAChild physical and emotional child abuse]] on their students, and foster parents who, [[NotSoAboveItAll despite their appearances to be seemingly ideal-looking and what model families should look like]], [[SupernaturalProofFather naturally disbelieve that a killer doll is on the loose out to get a child]] and can be vindictively judgmental if a child is a HeroWithBadPublicity and can easily deduce kids can be murderers ranging from an ObstructiveBureaucrat {{Jerkass}} foster father to a mother who starts out as caring and kind towards the child, [[BewareOfTheNiceOnes but]] [[NotSoAboveItAll th]][[BitchInSheepsClothing en]] TookALevelInJerkass towards the kid [[spoiler: after seeing her husband dead and irrationally jumped to a conclusion that the child killed him somehow]] just because of his [[HeroWithBadPublicity prior reputation]]). Not to mentioned TooDumbToLive social workers and factory employees and a minor newspaper truck driver who [[JerkassHasAPoint understandably]] from an impartial viewpoint can be [[BerserkButton irked]] if getting run off the road for seemingly no reason (except to prevent a killer doll to transfer his soul to a child). Plus, in contrast to the [[DissonantSerenity seemingly and visually family-friendly]] [[NotSoAboveItAll environment]], anyone besides Chucky can be [[SirSwearsALot Sir Swears-a-Lots]] (or go into a ClusterFBomb or inflict a PrecisionFStrike towards somebody, like Kyle or the truck driver when confronting Kyle), though not as much as Chucky, who swears the most.

* CrapsackWorld: The apparent setting of the films, as it's a WretchedHive of a universe filled with multiple kinds of deplorable and despicable characters such as [[{{Jerkass}} jerks]] (who [[AssholeVictim most deserved]] Chucky's wrath) and supporting characters who are mostly either TooDumbToLive, NotSoAboveItAll, {{Hate Sink}}s, or have [[{{TookALevelInJerkass}} taken a level in jerkass]], while protagonists who are [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]] who all happen to the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane People]] in comparison to the supporting cast. The world these films depicts almost every character except TheHero of each installment unilaterally selfish and motivated by their worst impulses is definitely this. It also has a bleak depiction of Chicago, Illinois or at least mid-America, ranging from Chicago being littered with vagrants who are rapists at night and has a rundown mental hospital for criminally insane children run by a BitchInSheepsClothing DrJerk in the first film to a toy company run by a heartless CorruptCorporateExecutive in the second and third films to a military school run by {{The Neidermeyer}}s in the third film to the life on the road filled with thieving couples and {{Dirty Cop}}s in the fourth film as well as a DysfunctionalFamily filled with a married couple who are {{Jerkass}}es in [[YourCheatingHeart different]] [[TookALevelInJerkass degrees]] and a TooDumbToLive [[BuryYourGays lesbian]] babysitter with the paraplegic woman to be the OnlySaneWoman in the family and more {{Dirty Cop}}s in the sixth film and a mental hospital filled with TooDumbToLive patients and orderlies run by a BitchInSheepsClothing DrJerk (who is also really a perverted SmugSnake PsychoPsychologist who rapes a female paraplegic patient during their sessions) in the seventh film. However, it's PlayedForLaughs in the fifth film when depicting the glamorous HorribleHollywood filled with LargeHam [[NewMediaAreEvil paparazzi]] (or as [[EvenEvilHasStandards Chucky points it out, "Paparazzi scumbag!"]]).
