** In "The Sweetest Sting", they let someone dying of cancer perish from withdrawal from the special honey, even though there's entire shelves of the stuff right there, enough to last him for decades if he just used a little of it every few weeks. Also in the same episode, Jack lets the vampire bees in the cursed hive free, trusting that they will turn back into normal everyday bees due to not being in the cursed hive anymore. Jack has no reason to think of this, especially since he, Ryan, and Micki are dealing with the dark and malevolent power of Satan. The smart thing would have been to destroy the bees themselves in order to be on the safe side from within the long run.

* ParanormalMundaneItem: The show revolves around the objects of a certain store that held paranormal properties (and some of them were quite modern-looking, like a radio), but all of them were a pretty vile Power at a Price (as an example: a crucifix that allowed even people who knew nothing of spiritism to perform exorcisms, but had to be fed human blood (and that meant stabbing people dead with it)).

Part of the reason Ryan and Micki end up in the GottaCatchEmAll situation that they do, however, is because these items are mixed in with the regular, uncursed antiques, so they have no way of knowing the truth when they are sold. While a number of the items are associated with famous people, many are not, and even the famous ones are often otherwise quite ordinary-looking. Among these are the boxing gloves, the tattoo kit, the foghorn, the sheriff's badge, the handkerchief, and the pocket watch.

* HollywoodVoodoo: Utterly averted in "The Voodoo Mambo". Jack gives a somewhat-abbreviated but completely accurate depiction of the true nature and beliefs of {{Voudoun}} (complete with footage of actual ceremonies!), the innocents being terrorized in the episode are benevolent, wise priests and priestesses, and while Micki and especially Ryan are wary at first due to HollywoodVoodoo depictions, eventually they come to realize the faith is a perfectly valid, good, harmless belief system and join in rather enthusiastically with the cultural carnival being held. The only aspects of this trope which appear in the episode are all being carried out by the VillainOfTheWeek, and they are stated repeatedly to be evil, twisted perversions and not a part of true {{Voudoun}} at all (being, in fact, aspects of hoodoo).

* AssholeVictim: The antagonist of "Hate On Your Dial" is a violent racist that murders a young black boy in the first quarter of the episode and later murders [[spoiler: his mentally disabled brother]] with a hammer for grabbing him when he finds him and then hears him voice plans to kill again to fuel the cursed object. It's hard to feel bad when [[spoiler: TheKlan guys he had been helping in 1954 via the object's time travel powers mistake him for an FBI informant and burn him alive.]]

* InvisibilityCloak: "The Prisoner" involves a case of a WorldWarTwo kamikaze fighter's jacket that renders its wearer invisible when smeared with blood. It clearly renders everything the villain wears invisible as well, although in one scene when he sneaks into the bathtub of a victim to kill her, his footprints as he chases her are naked ones. He can be identified by the scent of his telltale cigars [[spoiler:as well as, of course, when soaked by kerosene and then [[ManOnFire lit on fire]]]].

* FingerTwitchingRevival: Ryan gets one in "Vanity's Mirror", followed by a case of WorstAid from Micki, who jerks him to his feet without checking the extent of his injuries at all (he fell a good 20 feet, had a bleeding head wound, and could very well have had a broken neck).

** Variation. The robot protagonist of the comic book in "Tales of the Undead" is not drawn and then brought to life. Instead, the comic allows whoever holds it to become the robot--although the panels of the comic change to reflect what is happening in the real world.
