* ProducePelting: In the episode "Everybody Hates Elections", Chris is running for class president and finds himself in a debate against his opponent (the biggest bully on campus). Chris is really liking how his opponent is winning over the crowd, so he starts emulating him. One line Chris likes is "_____ now, _____ tomorrow and _____ forever." Problem is, he fouls up and ends up saying "Detention now, detention tomorrow and detention forever.". Cue about 200 pounds of mainly lettuce and tomatoes, with lots of other fruit and veggies mixed in, being tossed right at him.

* RealityEnsues: Chris doesn't attempt to fight back every time he gets bullied and physically assaulted by Caruso. Chris has lampshaded that he would either get framed by Caruso or beaten.

** Chris employed this in "Everybody Hates Being Cool". It was here that Chris was faced with two options: either he could be known as cool for being a lookout for the "cool kids", i.e. the juvenile delinquents that loiter around the arcade, and risk being named and imprisoned as an accessory to them before/during/after the fact, or he could forever be known as the nerdy kid, make like a banana and split. Chris chose to save his own hide and fled the scene of the crime when the cops showed up; a wise option, indeed.

* ShaggyDogStory: "Everybody Hates the Buddy System." The Principal tells Chris to hang out with Caruso in the hopes that Chris will understand why Caruso beats him up everyday. He pairs the two students together on a field trip, and purposely leaves them behind at a museum so they'd have to work together to find their way back to school. When Chris (predictably) learns nothing and reports back to the principal, the latter reassures the former that he did learn something after all: "You learned that I was wrong."
** "Everybody Hates Math". Chris has to get a good grade on an algebra test so his class can have a pizza party. So he gets his grandmother, a former algebra teacher, to tutor him and studies his butt off. When he finally takes the test, he technically answers every question correctly... [[AllForNothing But Ms. Morello gives him a zero because he put every answer in the wrong spot, thus screwing the class out of their pizza party]].

* BluffTheImpostor: Sort of in "Everybody Hates Basketball". Rochelle tells their new tenant (who she is afraid is a serial killer) that she heard he's from Chicago. When he says no, he's from Philly (and just says it's okay), she is suspicious because according to her, people from Philly can't shut up about it. [[spoiler: It turns out that he's wanted by the FBI.]]

* BreadEggsMilkSquick: A common formula for the [[CutawayGag Cutaway Gags]] of the show is to have [[RuleOfThree three similar situations]] where the last one is shocking or just mad in comparison to the others. Example from "Everybody Hates Blackie", about times Rochelle wanted to call the insurance company:

** Occasionally Rochelle's "I ain't raisin' no babies!" and "I don't need this! My man has TWO jobs!"
** Don't forget Greg's "You are so in there."
** And Mr. Omar's "Tragic."

* CharacterDevelopment: Most notably Chris, though most of the other young characters qualify.
** Chris is a bit of a "dork" at the beginning of the series and struggles socially, which in one episode he realizes is part of the cause of his bullying problems rather than just being the only black kid in school. By season four he is much more normal and a straight example of a [[CoolLoser "cool loser" protagonist]]. Meanwhile, his friend Greg started out as a typical social outcast whom Chris bonded with, but his dorkiness was flanderized to the point that he apparently couldn't sleep without dressing up as a superhero and praying to said hero for protection.
* ChekhovsGag: Julius gives Drew a Wayne ''Gritzky'' jersey in the episode "Everybody Hates the Buddy System." Then in the episode "Everybody Hates Gretzky," a couple of white guys try to steal Drew's jersey, but back off when they realize it's misspelled.
* ChickMagnet: Drew.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: The episode when Chris refuses to do the dishes when Rochelle. Like always, Chris's mom asks him to do it, but never makes Drew and Tonya do any chores, which he deems unfair and unreasonable. The entire episode, Chris and Rochelle are at odds with each other, with Julius trying to get both sides to meet in the middle (with Julius noting to Rochelle about how illogical her decision making can be, and that Chris has fair reason to be angry). In the end, Chris and Rochelle apologize, but Chris ''still'' winds up doing the dishes by episode's end while Drew and Tanya watch TV.
** In 'Everybody Hates Kris', Julius gets a job as a mall Santa to make some extra cash. The problem, however, is that his cheapness makes him forget that these kids truly expect Santa to bring them their expensive gifts. Julius tells all the children about how all the costs and financial stuff getting their gifts would do, resulting in a bunch of crying kids and one less mall Santa in the world.
* CondescendingCompassion: Even while being nice to Chris, Ms. Morello can't resist throwing in a racist comment or condescending tone.

** DoomedByCanon: The series finale has Chris dropping out of high school in the 10th grade after getting unfairly left back, to keep true to Chris Rock's real life. But considering how awesome Chris' life turned out after that, it's not so much of a DownerEnding.
* TheDreaded: Malvo. In 'Everybody Hates Ex-Cons', when word gets out that he's been released from prison, everyone discusses how they're locking up their doors big time so they can avoid him.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Rochelle. And Julius, to a lesser extent.
* DrunkWithPower: Chris, in "Everybody Hates Hall Monitors."
* DudeNotFunny: An InUniverse example happens when Chris starts telling jokes to his schoolmates using curse words. The kids don't laugh, and condemn him for telling them curse words instead.

** Apparently the one thing Risky won't sell is ''Playboy'' magazine, at least to kids (or, at least to Chris).
** And apparently the one crime that Rochelle couldn't forgive of her children is selling drugs.
* EverybodyHatesMathematics: The opening credits depict a textbook cover that reads "Everybody Hates Trigonometry."
** "Everybody Hates Math" is even the title of one episode.
