* AngstWhatAngst: Enforced in-universe in ''Double Down''. While working on their NoBudget indie horror film ''Night of the Night Crawlers'', Rowley is so freaked out that Greg has to shoehorn in a joke to keep him from running away. This joke turns out to be an unnamed man reacting to his wife's horrifying death by saying "Well, I guess this means I'm single!" and [[AsideGlance winking at the camera]].



* LosingYourHead: In the ''Xtreme Sk8ters'' comic strip, one of the stick figures gets decapitated by a telephone wire. His head still manages to talk.

* NoBudget: In-universe in ''Double Down'', where Greg and Rowley try to make an indie horror film. Their low-end equipment is "borrowed" from their parents, the only actor is Rowley, and their "special effects" are gummy worms and ketchup.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: In-universe in ''Double Down'', where Greg tries to create a homemade horror movie on NoBudget:
** Rowley is the only actor, and has to [[ActingForTwo act for many]]. Since Greg has no video editing skills, this means that no scene in the movie can feature more than one character.
** Rowley [[CrosscastRole plays an unnnamed woman]]. Unfortunately, he refuses to wear a dress, and they don't have a wig for him. He ends up wearing yoga pants and a hooded sweater, and having the character never show her face.
--> '''Woman''': I hope you don't mind if I don't turn around but I am really concentrating on doing these dishes.
** They try to make a scene in which an unnamed man tries to take a shower, but worms come out instead of water. Greg can't find a way to make it looks natural, and settles for throwing gummy worms at Rowley's face and hoping it'll look realistic once they make the final cut.
** They use ketchup as fake blood.
** Discussed when Greg point out that he still hasn't figured out how to film the climax of the movie, which would feature a battle against a giant worm. Sadly, they never get around to attempting this scene at all.

* AscendedExtra: ''Diary of a Wimpy Kid'' itself. It used to be a very obscure webcomic on a site meant for elementary school-age kids. Now it's a wildly popular 11-book series with four movies and more books to come.

** Trista, a girl from New Mexico was introduced and set up to be a major character at the end of ''The Last Straw''. After a brief appearance in ''Dog Days'', she's never heard from again. Justified since she ditched Rowley and Greg at the country club in the summer between the end of ''The Last Straw'' and the beginning of ''Dog Days''.
