*** Also notable, ''The Beatrice Letters'' seems to imply that [[spoiler:at least one of the non-malevolent adults from the series, Charles, is still alive after the Hotel Denoument fire. He's also never likely to realize that Sir is undeserving of his love]], but you take what you can get in a series where the closest thing to a happy ending is the unconfirmed implication that someone didn't drown or burn to death.

* TotallyRadical: In-universe, Count Olaf's disguise as Detective Dupin in Book 7 comes off this way. Mainly he overuses the word "cool" (always accompanied by a finger snap) and wears an over-the-top cool outfit with sequined pants and sunglasses.

* FantasticNuke: The Medusoid Mycelium.

to:

* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: Daniel Handler has noted that the series was inspired by and in a sense meant to be a modern version of classic fairy tales, which are rarely as pleasant as their Bowdlerized Victorian equivalents. In keeping with this fine tradition, the series contains violence that, while not graphically described, is frequently quite serious. Legs are crushed by logs, babies are threatened with death or maiming, people are shot with ''harpoon guns'', and the effects of [[spoiler:the Medusoid Mycelium, a fungal bioweapon]] sound like something more fitting for ''TheLastOfUs'' than a children's book series.
* FantasticNuke: The Medusoid Mycelium.[[spoiler:Medusoid Mycelium]].

* AngstWhatAngst: Averted for the most part. Most of the unfortunate events that happen to the Baudelaire orphans affect them significantly, and they frequently discuss (even under rare good circumstances, as in the early chapters of ''The Reptile Room'') their sorrow over events that have happened a significant amount of time in the past. Their conflicts are treated as sufferings, rather than fun adventures.

* BoardingSchoolOfHorrors: It's a safe bet that a boarding school with the motto ''Mementi Morri'' (which is latin for "Remember you will die") is not going to be a pleasant one. And Prufrock Preparatory School in Book the Fifth is indeed not.
