** Perhaps they want to keep the illusion that there's no protective mechanical frame surrounding them by faking pain? Of course [[TheyJustDidntCare there's always the other answer]].

* Some villains only want to scare people away so they can find hidden treasure without being disturbed, right? Wouldn't dressing up as a ghost/monster attract more attention? Wouldn't that make people travel to your island to check out the mysterious ghost pirate that is terrorizing your neighbors?

* Right. In one episode Velma explains that she worked out who the culprit was because the 'ghost' had been supposedly sabotaging amusement park rides, but the rides turned out to actually be safe - they were just altered to ''look'' sabotaged. And apparently this means that this one person has to be guilty. My problem with this is that Velma is essentially implying that if any of the other suspects wanted to look like they were sabotaging something, they'd ''actually sabotage it''. So she thinks that every suspect who turned out to be innocent is a sociopath, basically. And ''no-one takes offence at this''.

* How do they decide which criminals get off scot-free? In "What's New Scooby-Doo?" I seem to remeber one or two getting off the hook, because they apparently didn't commit any crimes. What about the miner 49-er? He just ran around and growled and [[spoiler: tried to keep an oil discovery secret]] and yet he still went to jail.

** It probably depends on whether anyone's willing to press charges. In most cases, the villains were malacious enough and the victims harrassed enough that they're only too happy to call the cops, but every now and then, it's a lighthearted and personal enough situation that once the truth comes out, everyone involved is willing to laugh it off.

** Also, there's that fairly infamous line, "Daphne and I will check out the bedroom."

** Daphne's first relative is a famous director. She was implied to come from money. Later spinoffs pretty much indirectly made it all of them come from families that are all decent wealth. Shaggy and Scooby themselves having more than one big fancy ancestral home to their names.




to:

** That's actually a misconception from some of the earliest episodes. As far as seasons with the five original gang members, Fred and Daphne aren't alone together that often. By sheer numbers Velma goes with them more often than she goes with Scooby and Shaggy.

** Let's see, why would Fred keep insisting they bring the hot chick on every mission? Then always suggest they split up so he and she are alone together?

* Why do they keep Daphne around? All she does is stand around & look pretty and be kidnapped repeatedly. She doesn't do anything useful; they should've ditched her back in 1973!

** They're high school students - they sometimes mention they're skipping class for a mystery - so parents provide food and clothes, and maybe gas too. It's mentioned several times that Daphne's family is rich, and the other kids seem to come from middle class families.
