* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Greg suffers from this big time. For exmaple, in the second book, he mistreats Chirag Gupta by pretending he doesn't exist. If the same thing happened to ''him'', he'd almost certainly complain about it and call the kid(s) doing it to him bulllies.

* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: In-universe, the movie about the muddy hand. The last person who sees the hand is always the next victim.
