* CatsAreMean: Many books, like ''Cry of the Cat'', ''Claws'' and ''Night of a Thousand Claws'' have supernatural, evil cats as the villains. Normal cats are usually depicted as lazy and mean towards the protagonists. Stine himself said in an interview: "I've always been a dog person. You can tell I don't like cats--because I've written so many books with evil cats. It's much harder to imagine an evil dog."

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Thanks to ''Goosebumps Horrorland'', many of the human characters from the original series don't reappear alongside the enemies they fought.
** The cast of the first four ''Monster Blood'' books are completely replaced with brand new characters in ''Monster Blood for Breakfast''. Considering how widely disliked the majority of the old cast was (except for Andy), the use of this trope isn't too surprising.



* HopeSpot: [[spoiler: How ''I Am Your Evil Twin'' ends. Nan discovers the Monty she picked is really one of the evil clones, and he reveals how he carefully set it up so Nan and her father would believe he was the real Monty. The Monty clone fails to realize there's nothing stopping Nan or her father from now rescuing the real Monty since the clone stupidly revealed the truth.]]



* MentalTimeTravel: ''The Cuckoo Clock of Doom'' is based around a cuckoo clock which causes the protagonist to jump back to earlier points in his life starting with the previous day. The problem is that it keeps going further back in time with no sign of stopping, probably [[RetGone erasing him from existence]] eventually.

** ''Stuck in 1957'' is about a girl who finds a pair of glasses that send her to the titular year. Only for some reason the girl appears to have a completely separate life in this year, including another family, so it's more like she's been sent into another universe.

* StopHelpingMe: In-universe this is the case with Evan and his nasty little cousin Kermit, who frequently gets Evan into fights with {{Jerkass}} Conan Barber, though it's clear Kermit does this just so Evan will get beaten up. This also occurs in ''Are You Terrified Yet?'' with Craig and Amy. Amy constantly gets Craig stuck in wagers to prove how brave he really is, even though Craig just wants her to shut up. Even when Craig admits the truth about his bravery, Amy thinks he's just being modest. [[spoiler: Craig gets to scare her at the end along with the other kids.]]
