* {{Fingore}}: In "Sometimes They Come Back", Jim offers his left and right index fingers to the demon as partial payment for getting rid of the punks. He hacks them off with a pocketknife, and it's described in gory detail. Even better, he's unable to grip his knife in his right hand, so he simply ''rips off his left index finger.''

* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Lester Billings. It gets a little lost in the horrific tragedy of his story, but paying attention to all his dialogue reveals he is racist, homophobic, and casually misogynistic and abusive (he speaks of hitting his wife in the same terms one would describe taking out the garbage in terms of problem solving, and also at least once struck one of his young children to silence them, not to mention he slut shames his own wife by talking about 'how easily she went to bed with him before they were married'). He crosses the line when scared of the Boogeymen, he purposely moves his son out of his room because the Boogeymen will go for him first. Because he's weaker.]] Whatever fate he suffers, he probably deserved worse.
** Burt and Vicky Robeson, both of whom do nothing but argue with each other throughout the story. They are irredeemably mean-spirited and annoying compared to [[Film/ChildrenOfTheCorn their film counterparts]]. [[spoiler:Unlike the film, both end up being sacrificed to He Who Walks Behind The Rows.]]
** Warwick. As detailed below, he isn't very nice to his subordinates in the mill and makes Hall descend into the very lowest level of the basement, seemingly as revenge for threatening to blow the whistle about the mill's vermin problem. Hall might also count, as it's very strongly hinted that he's losing his marbles and led Warwick to his death.
