* The Creeps of ''Calling All Creeps'' are apparently created by identity seeds mutating human hosts. This most likely includes the main four(Jared,Brenda,Wart,David). That's right, these monstrous,human-hating reptoids used to be normal children. Ricky might be just one of ''many'' troubled kids who found themselves forced into the Creeps' ranks.

* In ''The Ghost Next Door'', Hannah realizes that [[spoiler:she was dead from a fire that she refuses to put out killed her family and burned the entire house]]. It wasn't an accident, it was on purpose.

*** Not how it works. You canít write something into being real but [[spoiler: but it may actually be a good thing as there is a good chance that she may wind up developing the LivingForeverIsAwesome mindset and it means that at least somebody will be around to deal with anymore supernatural threats, which is good for the world as a whole]].

**And the cover becomes ''ten times'' more unsettling if you interpret Jellyjam's powers a certain way. It's not uncommon for psychic entities in fiction [[PeoplePuppets to act and speak through those they control.]] That could be Jellyjam ''himself'' grinning at us, staring through the face of one of his victims.

* ''Attack Of The Mutant'' has Libby reading ''High School Harry and Beanhead'' comics, an obvious Expy of [[Comic/ArchieComics]]. It's shown to be a facade, but considering ''Libby'' is a shape-shifter from a world of superheroes impersonating a pre-teen girl, it makes sense that he'd want to read up more on how to act like one.

** Another from "Attack of the Mutant" -- if you look closely at the picture of the Masked Mutant on the cover you'll notice that a part of his costume subtely resembles [[spoiler: pigtails...just like the kind a young girl would wear her hair in.]]

** Jellyjam has been thriving because poor campers just couldn't resist the urge to compete, and unwittingly gave him more slaves. He's destroyed by Wendy, the one person who ''wasn't'' enthusiastic about competition, and she did so by convincing the unlucky campers to stop washing him. Jellyjam only died because his victims stopped giving him what he wants.
** Wendy and Elliot's parents(and probably others) stop searching the camp just because the councillors tell them their kids aren't there. Considering Jellyjam had complete control of his minions' minds, (to the point where he could alter Buddy's memories) he could make them sound as convincing as he wants.

** The twist ending also reveals that Doctor Gray was technically justified in his actions to some extent. Gray kept Dana because he was worried that exposure to the egg monsters was hazardous, which is apparently true based on what happens to Dana at the end of the book. The egg monsters end up killing Gray for threatening Dana, proving that they can kill humans. When Gray dies, the reader feels relieved for Dana, but Gray was actually holding off an alien invasion.

* [[{{Bookends}} Both the second and second-to-last book in the original series]](''Stay Out Of The Basement'', ''I Live In Your Basement'')[[CaptainObvious have basement-related titles]].

* [[{{Bookends}} Both the second and second-to-last book in the original series]](''Stay Out Of The Basement'', ''I Live In Your Basement'')[[CaptainObvious have basement-related titles]].titles.]] Odd coincidence, but both stories are also about a grotesque mutant pretending to be a human, trying to force himself into the protagonists' lives. In that sense, the latter might be a SpiritualSequel to the former.
