** There is one particular scene where Slappy confronts the heroes in a hall of mirrors, only appearing in one mirror at a time.

** There is one particular scene where Slappy confronts the heroes in a hall of mirrors, mirrors. A typical, cheesy scare... except that he only appearing appears in one mirror at a time.

** The whole story is just a long series of contradictions; even the aforementioned TwistEnding makes very little sense, in context or otherwise.

* The only way to defeat the monsters is to [[spoiler: write them into a book to contain them]]. This can only be accomplished by [[spoiler: using Stine's typewriter]]. If [[spoiler: the monsters are freed again, and the typewriter is destroyed]], there is no way to stop the monsters at all. And we know that Slappy learns from his mistakes...

** It gets worse when you consider the FridgeHorror of The Masked Mutant: He impersonated a teenage girl so flawlessly that Skipper still believed "Libby" was on his side right up until the moment that The Mutant revealed the deception. In short, he can not only shapeshift, but he's a fairly skilled actor too. Imagine what someone like that could do if they had a motive beyond "kill my biggest fan": The mutant could have impersonated any number of influential figures, up to and including The President, allowing him to sieze a great deal of political power.

* ''Welcome to Dead House'' is also considered one of the episodes that is genuinely scary thanks to its atmosphere and the fact the entire town are creepy zombies that want to feed on the family that moves in.

* ''The Werewolf of Fever Swamp'' is probably the scariest episode of the series. With genuinely creepy atmosphere and a scary looking and sounding werewolf. The episode even has animals that are ''killed'' by the werewolf (off screen, but still disturbing)!

* The TV episode of ''How to Kill a Monster'' is also pretty [[{{Narm}} narmtastic]], but, good ''god'', [[HellIsThatNoise the sound that monster makes sounds like an elephant from the depths of hell]], and it's not pretty.

* ''The Girl Who Cried Monster'' is one of the most well-remembered books of the ''Goosebumps'' series, and for good reason. It seems to be your average CryingWolf plot where a girl, Lucy Dark, sees a local librarian, Mr. Mortman, becoming a bug-eating monster after the library closes. Nothing really out of the ordinary until the {{twist ending}}, where Lucy's parents invite Mr. Mortman over for dinner. [[spoiler:And by that, we mean it literally. Lucy's parents invite Mr. Mortman ''to be their dinner'']], because, as it turns out, [[spoiler:the entire Dark family is comprised of monsters. And they seem to be quite efficient at devouring other living beings. Lucy and her brother have yet to grow their fangs, though.]] ''Yeesh...''
** FridgeHorror: Lucy's little brother was so afraid of all the made-up monsters Lucy told him about; imagine how he must've felt finding out [[spoiler:that he, as well as his family members, are the genuine article!]]
