* The narrator for the TV advertisements for KingdomHospital, while not entirely inaccurate, made the show seem like an overly dramatic, extremely intense, straight horror series. Anyone who actually watched an episode of the show knows it doesn't take itself nearly as serious as the narrator made it out to be, who exaggerates even the silly comedic or mundane moments in the series sound ominous or exciting. One example would be "The head doctor is inducted into a secret society!" The actual "secret society" is a standard fraternity deal with ridiculous hats and silly secret hand gestures, and is mostly played for laughs. Narrator: "The dead cause the Earth to tremble!" The reality: Minor earth tremors occur at Kingdom hospital ocassionally.

** This is far from the only instance of this in the series. In the confrontations against two {{Big Bad}}s both the villains and the protagonists start ranting a mile a minute about things like free will, determination, hope, despair, responsibility, and everything the series goes for. They never say anything terribly original or deep, but it's presented as though both sides are profound.

-->'''Gummy:''' What is life? Is it nothing more than the endless search for a cutie mark? And what is a cutie mark, but a constant reminder that we're all only one [[MixAndMatchCritters bugbear]] attack away from oblivion? And what of the poor gator, flank forever blank, destined to an existential swim down the river of life to... an unknowable destiny? ''[[[{{Bathos}} licks his own eyeball]]]''
