* ArtEvolution: The art used in the novels is less sketchy than the one in the webcomic, and as the series has gone on, the illistrations have gotten more and more detailed.

* TooDumbToLive: After Greg and Rodrick buy fish from a pet store (an angelfish and a ''very aggressive'', carnivorous fish, respectively), Rodrick never even bothers to feed his fish or clean the bowl (it lives off the algae growing in the inside of the bowl). Greg's mom sees this and finds it to be gross, so she puts Rodrick's fish in Greg's fishbowl. You can guess what happens from there.
** Really, it seems like almost everyone is pretty stupid in this series (mostly the boys from Greg's school), including the protagonist (for example, without a chart from his mom on how to put on his clothes, he put his socks on over his shoes). However, part of this can be chalked up to UnreliableNarrator, as it's pretty clear Greg doesn't like most people.
** Greg explains in one book that his Dad isn't so stupid. Don't forget about Frew. But for the most part, unless Greg says they aren't stupid, most of the characters in the series can be interpreted as such.

** Greg himself once, in a flashback when he wrote very rude anonymous Valentine's Day cards to everyone in his class (case in point: "Dear James, you smell.") He was GenreSavvy enough to write a card for himself so the teacher wouldn't suspect him. It worked.

* SpoiledBrat: Manny. Though one could argue he's not to blame, the fact his parents are the ones who spoil him rotten and never tell him the difference between right and wrong, is practically child abuse.

** Taken UpToEleven in ''The Getaway''. Greg finds a giant spider in his slipper and attempts to flush it down the toilet with the help of the room service waiter. Later, Dad says he tried to use the toilet, but that same spider was on the underside of the seat, so he hit it with the room's bathrobe and it seemed to disappear into thin air. This joke continues near the end of the book when Greg attempts to scale a fence to evade security, and Rodrick tries to [RuleOfEmpathy help Greg over] as he cannot quite reach the top. The spider crawls out of his sleeve and onto Greg, causing him to fall. This is because Rodrick had to wear the bathrobe dad hit the spider with to a fancy restaurant as he could not find any trousers, and he carried the spider with him all along.

** Greg. When he and Rowley often try to accomplish tasks together, he usually makes him do all of the work. Also, there's his treatment of Chirag Gupta and pelting Patty Farrell with apples. (The movie makes this a little more justified, by portraying Patty Farrell as a {{Jerkass}} who is stuck on an insult he did in kindergarten.)

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: ''Way'' on the cynical side. However, this just seems to be Greg's view on the world (he's displayed some sociopath styled tendencies mind you) and thus this leaks into his journals.
