to:

* KillerRabbit: or so Bunnicula is a vampire-like rabbit that Chester assumes''assumes'' is a killer rabbit, hiding his malevolent nature behind a cute exterior, but there's no evidence that he ever actually does any harm whatsoever besides draining vegetables.

* NoodleIncident: Chester never lets Harold forget about the thing with the geranium. Or the thing with Mr. Monroe's electric shaver. Though unlike most examples, we DO get some details - Harold apparently ate Mrs. Monroe's favorite geranium, and thought Mr. Monroe's electric shaver was a giant bumblebee that was attacking him, so he grabbed it and threw it in the toilet.

* NotSoAboveItAll: Despite being the OnlySaneMan, Harold usually begins to get sucked into Chester's delusions toward the end of each book, when confronted with weirder and weirder goings-on with no ready prosaic explanation.



* PredatorTurnedProtector: Chester ultimately becomes much friendlier toward Bunnicula, although he chooses to spin it as protecting Bunnicula against his own dark nature.



* WrongGenreSavvy: Chester sees himself as Van Helsing to Bunnicula's {{Dracula}}, when the truth is a lot more [[DefangedHorrors benign]].

Added DiffLines:

* EntertaininglyWrong: Near the end of the first book, the Monroes conclude that Chester's behavior was rooted in a sibling rivalry he allegedly has with Bunnicula.


Added DiffLines:

* LamePunReaction: In "Bunnicula Strikes Back" Howie cracks that "You're no bunny until some bunny loves you" and Harold narration notes that he could ''hear'' Chester grind his teeth.

Added DiffLines:

* CloudcuckoolanderWasRight: In ''Howliday Inn'', Chester determinedly thinks something horrible is going to happen, and is proven right when Louise goes missing, believing it to be foul play. While not murder, the poodle did not vanish of her own will.

Added DiffLines:

* OnlySaneMan: Harold, the viewpoint character and in-universe narrator. While not very well-read, he certainly has a better grip on reality than Chester, and tries to keep the cat's wild notions in line- emphasis on "Tries". Chester, meanwhile, ''thinks'' he's one of these, but his imagination and cynicism tends to stir things up.

* AffectionateParody: Both series are a parody of horror novels. Also, the ''Fleshcrawler'' books Howie reads are clearly parodies of R.L. Stine's ''Goosebumps''.

* ObliviouslyEvil: So far in the cartoon's first episode, Bunnicula has been shown to be pretty nice but don't really seem to understand how dangerous and wrong his actions are such as raising the dead which he immediately understood when told seeing zombies could have scared Mina.



* ShoutOut:
** Mina is shown watching a cartoon that looks like ''WesternAnimation/{{Breadwinners}}'' at the beginning of "Alligator Tears".
** M.T. Graves and the ''Fleshcrawlers'' series are clearly a reference to R.L. Stine and ''Goosebumps.''

* CreepyCrows: Horror writer M.T. Graves has a bird who he calls Edgar Allan Crow. Chester, of course, thinks that both of them are up to no good. However, it ultimately turns out to be a subversion; Edgar Allan Crow is just an ordinary crow and not at all scary (except in Chester's runaway imagination).

to:

* ShoutOut: PunnyName:
** Edgar Allan Crow, who was named after horror writer Creator/EdgarAllanPoe.
** Pete's favorite horror writer, M.T. Graves, has another pun for a pseudonym ("empty graves").

* AnimalSuperhero: Howie is a wire-haired dachshund puppy (and Dean is a sparrow) so Stinky Dog and Little D are an animal superhero and animal sidekick.
* AuthorAvatar: Howie's books star himself and his friend.
