* KickTheDog: Fred ''really'' wants to go to the meeting, even if it means leaving Scooby behind. The rest of the gang had to convince him otherwise, but he's clear he didn't get over it anyway.

Possibly InnocentlyInsensitive, given Fred seems to have an AmbiguousDisorder (and he does excuse himself to cry rather than complain in front of the others) and the rest of the gang don't seem irritated by his behavior.

* DudeWheresMyRespect: The motive rant for WesternAnimation/TheFunkyPhantom/Lord Infernicus.
* {{Filler}}: The episode contributes nothing to the main plot other than possibly world-building by suggesting that the other cartoons exist in the ''Mystery Incorporated'' universe (and as we learn later, ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' and ''WesternAnimation/DynomuttDogWonder'' exist as well) and introducing the Crystal Cove High School’s principal (albeit she’s a OneShotCharacter).

** The episode is AllJustADream... but after certain revelations in Season 2, that raises the question of [[OrWasItADream whether or not there actually was some truth in this dream]]. [[spoiler:To put it briefly, dreams can be manifestations of space-time shenanigans (like the Entity's influence) interacting with your mind.]]

* KickTheDog: Velma calls Scooby a "sidekick".

to:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: While comforting Scooby by saying that [[TrueCompanions they would never leave him behind]], Velma states that it's because he's their [[TeamPet sidekick]]. Scooby takes offense to it, as being called their "sidekick" implies that they don't see him as their equal, their friend.

** In addition, Jabberjaw is probably the most similar to Scooby in that they're both {{Talking Animal}}s in a group consisting of them and four humans. [[spoiler:Which would mean the Neptunes could've been a result of the Entity's influence. This is stopped since the Entity is destroyed before the Neptunes could possibly come to existence.]]
** Though Mudsy isn't a TalkingAnimal, [[spoiler:his betrayal as their team mascot might've been {{Foreshadowing}} that Pericles and his predecessors in previous mystery-solving groups are destined to FaceHeelTurn and turn against their team.]]
** Angel. [[spoiler:She lost her friends to a mysterious monster threatening to hurt them too, and of course, they were both betrayed by a team mascot. Her presence at the state finals, unknowingly or not to her, indirectly represented the original Mystery Incorporated.]]



* ShadowDiscretionShot: Spoofed. Fred assures Scooby they wouldn't leave him behind at the Mystery Solvers State Finals, but then excuses himself to go sob and wail — but we hear Fred and see his shadow angsting.

* AdultsAreUseless: The only adults in this episode are Principal Quinlan, Angel Dynamite, and Sheriff Stone (and Mayor Jones, if you count him getting mentioned earlier on). For once, this trope is mostly averted, as Quinlan and Angel actively try to help the mascots, but played straight for [[PoliceAreUseless Stone]], and it's not like Mayor Jones would've been much help anyway.
