** Gleefully subverted by Wednesday during the Thanksgiving play to the applause of a grateful nation. She basically leads the minority campers (being forced to play racist Native American stereotypes) in a full-scale assault on the rich white kids, as both symbolic revenge for the real Native Americans, and literal revenge on the kids and counselors who had been dicks to them the entire time.

* AllPartOfTheShow: When Wednesday goes OffTheRails during the Thanksgiving play in ''Addams Family Values'', the audience doesn't get that she's off-script until well after the set is on fire. The fact that they clearly do intend to burn Amanda alive at least gets her parents moving.

* SugaryMalice: The Camp Chippewa counselors.

to:

* SugaryMalice: The Camp Chippewa counselors. They treat the kids like they are all five years old, and the real scary thing is only the outcasts (read: those who aren't JerkJock or AlphaBitch material) seem to think something is amiss.

** Even the campers are scared of it.

** Even the campers are scared of it.it, though it doesn't faze Becky or Gary, speaking to just how disturbed they probably are, too. [[spoiler:Of course, it's all part of Wednesday's plan to show them just what Hell actually looks like.]]

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Most of the Chippewa campers look straight out of the Hitler Youth.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Most of the Chippewa campers look straight out of the Hitler Youth. And act it, too. Anything tramping on their myopic idea of what kids their age should be interested in is quickly and coldly goose-stepped on.

* DarkIsNotEvil: Questionable. The movies specifically partially invoke this trope too, with various people involved with the movies pointing out for all their dark, macabre nature and seemingly violent acts, the Addamses are in their way the ideal family... the parents are HappilyMarried, deeply in love after all these years with the fire of passion as bright as it ever was, the entire family is deeply devoted to one another's well-being and happiness, they're concerned about their friends (Morticia twice wishes she could befriend their enemies), and they give generously to charity. They're just... ''strange''. However, given the degree to which the movies were DarkerAndEdgier than the original live action series, they are not true examples, taking their macabre trappings to the point (the Addamses come off as more AffablyEvil, particularly in ''Addams Family Values''. It should be noted that the movies were based on the original cartoons by Charles Addams, including a gag taken directly from the cartoons, with the family pouring a pot of boiling oil on a group of Christmas carollers. They are CardCarryingVillain s after all.
