** Koda from "The Tale of the Dark Music." A borderline sociopath, he ruthlessly bullies Andy [[spoiler:until Andy traps him in the basement with the closet-creature. Exit Koda.]]]] Although he is shown being bullied by his family in turn, and the ending implies the [[spoiler:rumors and fear of Andy's Uncle]] were justified. While it doesn't excuse the bullying, the situation doesn't seem as black and white as initially portrayed at the end, especially coupled with [[spoiler:Andy's]] PsychoticSmirk.

The story revolved around a club of teenagers called the "Midnight Society" who meet around a campfire in the woods once a week to tell horror stories. Each of the members had their own quirk and storytelling style; one specialized in fairy-tale like stories, one specialized in TrappedInAnotherWorld stories. The show was just your typical SpeculativeFiction/horror anthology series like ''Franchise/TheTwilightZone'' or ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' for the early teen set.

No description of the series would be complete without mentioning its terrifying [[https://youtu.be/3pBBLN0w7NY opening credits sequence]]. If you grew up watching the show, chances are there was a time when you or a sibling would run from the room within seconds of it turning up on the TV screen.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: In "The Tale of the Nightly Neighbors" Emma's description of the Ukraine's position relative to other countries seems strange, given that she's looking at a map. She said it's "in the middle of all those -ia places," and gives Romania, Bulgaria, and Transylvania as specific examples. The Ukraine does share a border with Romania, but Bulgaria is south of that close to Greece. Also, Transylvania has not been independent since 1867, and has been part of Romania since 1918 (although parts of it were disputed by Hungary until at least the 1940s).

* AnimatedArmor: In "The Tale of the Bookish Babysitter," there is knight that attacks Ricky in his bedroom and later in the old crypt. After being defeated (or at least persuaded to surrender), the armor falls apart, revealing it was empty. We're unsure if it was ''always'' empty, or only after he gave up. A far more straightforward example is in "The Tale of the Silver Sight," where Tucker finds himself besieged by General Candle's collection of suits of armor and military uniforms (including several knights, a Samurai, a Conquistador and a World War I British soldier).

** Chuck in "The Tale of the Gruesome Gourmets." It takes a special kind of douchebag to run over a child's bike and them make him pay for the damage to your car, including threatening said child with bodily harm if he doesn't. [[spoiler:Nobody misses him when he gets eaten by the cannibals.]]
