** The artifact owner in "Scarlet Cinema" inverts this, since he begins as a strange film student obsessed with UniversalHorror movies who still remains [[TheWoobie a sad]], [[LonersAreFreaks friendless loner]] [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer picked on by his fellow classmates]]...but once he starts committing murders with the film camera he becomes rather monstrous, moving from accidentally killing the camera's owner, to an AssholeVictim, to his professor when he humiliates him for essentially making a snuff film of the second murder for his class project. By the time he's trying to kidnap the target of his VillainousCrush so [[WeCanRuleTogether they can both be werewolves together]], he's pretty much lost all of the viewer's sympathy--although oddly, [[CryForTheDevil not that]] of either the DistressedDamsel or the main characters; Jack wishes him peace in the next world, and Ryan and Micki both express their regret that he should have [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor been careful what he wished for]].

* PoliceAreUseless: Also in "A Cup of Time", lead investigator Lt. Fishbein is portrayed as arrogant, condescending, and incompetent. At one scene, he has Micki and Ryan arrested just because he doesn't like them interfering in his case. Obviously, they're released because the person they supposedly attacked did prove to the cops that she's their friend.

Added DiffLines:

* UltimateEvil: Lucifer, the BiggerBad of the whole series and the one responsible for the whole plot is never shown on camera. The only one who briefly catches a glimpse of him is Micki, who describes his eyes as being empty. Jack goes on to say "Maybe that's all evil is. An absence of good."

Added DiffLines:

* ThereAreNoPolice: Many episodes end with the three protagonists in situations that would look extremely suspicious or even incriminating. One in particular would be "Bedazzled" where three people die at the shop with only Miki there. How did she get rid of the bodies?

Added DiffLines:

* DepravedDentist: The villain of "The Electrocutioner" is a particularly disturbing example of this, thanks to the nature of the chair he uses and [[AffablyEvil how he lures his victims in]]. The fact they're all [[AcceptableTargets poor troubled]] [[WouldHurtAChild youths]] doesn't help either.

* YouLookFamiliar: Several actors were recycled, with Denis Forest being a particular standout, appearing in four different episodes as four different characters. (The fact that he specialized in playing creepy sleazeballs made him a good fit for this show..)
