** 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.

** This troper always assumed the clock represented his own life, so events relating to the protagonist's social life (considering he would have been six, this, luckily, is not too much) would have been wiped out. Nasty, yes, but it doesn't get rid of hundreds, maybe thousands, of people.

* According to the HorrorLand spinoff books, the Goosebumps books are set in [[CrapsackWorld the same universe.]] Now just imagine the kid protagonists years later, with their own children. How are they going to protect their own offspring?

* Also in ''The Curse of Camp Cold Lake'', at first you think the girl on the cover is supposed to be Della, the ghost girl that torments poor Sarah Maas all story long. Until you read and find Della looks perfectly normal but is transparent (plus, she died when she ran into the woods and got bitten by snakes. No one has ever died in the lakes of Camp Cold Lake because the counselors impose a buttload of water safety rules. This girl is not transparent and looks like a [[DistaffCounterpart female version of the Skin Taker from]] ''DarthWiki/CandleCove.'' The ending implies that Sarah is killed by Brinna in the MandatoryTwistEnding, though Sarah was also killed by a snake, because the story ended with Brinna holding a poisonous snake and asking Sarah to be her buddy.

* At the end of ''Be Careful What You Wish For'', everyone's going to start wondering what exactly happened to Samantha, since obviously nobody would believe the real story. The police are probably going to get called in, and what will they learn? That Samantha disappeared after a school day where Judith was bullying her particularly badly (since time got reset). At the very least, everyone's going to think that Judith drove her to suicide, or may have even done something to her. It's hard to imagine that Judith will come out of that too well, [[KickTheSonOfABitch so her]] KarmaHoudini [[KickTheSonOfABitch status may actually be short-lived.]]

* Gary from "Why I'm Afraid of Bees" is turned into a [[BalefulPolymorph worker bee]] with a stinger, which doesn't seem that terrible until you realize that [[GenderBender only female bees can sting...]]

\n** Furthermore Hannah is presented with curly hair and a pale complexion [[spoiler: which lets people know she's a ghost.]] In the end, [[spoiler: when she is released from the book]], she has a tan and straight hair, revealing [[spoiler: she was rewritten as a human.]]

* Seeing how Rip has been alive for a long time in ''Cry of the Cat'', it makes you wonder if Rip has had any other targets than Allison, Crystal, and her mother.
