* BrokenPedestal: TheHero finds him or herself in this position when one or more of their confidents believed they committed the crimes that were in fact caused by Chucky. This however, causes the one who becomes disillusioned to TookALevelInJerkass or reveals him or herself to be negatively NotSoAboveItAll and becomes just another [[spoiler: AssholeVictim who is TooDumbToLive for Chucky to kill]].

** 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 then 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.

* RasputinianDeath: In the first three films, Chucky takes an absurd amount of punishment. Getting set on fire, dismembered, melted, and ''cutting half of his face off'' only slowed him down temporarily.

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



* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: The Good Guy Doll being alive was supposed to be a twist... wouldn't you know? The original poster of the first film just showed a woman crashing through a window out of a building (the first murder victim of Chucky in the film) and giant evil eyes in the stormy sky.

** Jade and Jesse are this to David in the fourth film (though unlike most examples in the series, its revelation is more PlayedForLaughs in a BlackComedy manner due to the fourth film steering more towards the humorous route).

* InsaneTrollLogic: In the franchise's CrapsackWorld, it seems anyone can easily accept that any human being, whether its either impossibly a 6 to 8 year-old child or a wheelchair-bound woman, are capable to commit a murder, ''[[IdiotBall except]]'' a KillerDoll.

Added DiffLines:

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Most of the supporting characters beside TheHero have nothing to due with the main plots of the films except to act as either TooDumbToLive and/or AssholeVictim cannon fodder for Chucky's body count or as oblivious bystanders frustratingly flabbergasted at what's going on due to them disbelieving the existence of Chucky. See FlatEarthAtheist above for more information.

* CrapsackWorld: The apparent setting of the films, as it's a universe filled with [[{{Jerkass}} jerks]] (who [[AssholeVictim most deserved]] Chucky's wrath), supporting characters who are mostly either TooDumbToLive, NotSoAboveItAll, {{Hate Sink}}s, [[TheScrappy The Scrappys]] or have TookALevelInJerkass and protagonists who are [[TheWoobie The Woobies]] and [[HeroWithBadPublicity Heroes With Bad Publicity]] who all happen to the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane People]] in comparison to the supporting cast. 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 and 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. However, it's PlayedForLaughs in the fourth film when depicting the glamorous Hollywood filled with LargeHam [[NewMediaAreEvil paparazzi]] (or as [[EvenEvilHasStandards Chucky points it out, "Paparazzi scumbag!"]]).
