* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Jenny's boyfriend in the first episode never makes another appearance again after [[spoiler: Todd beats him in a guitar shredding contest and makes him bleed out of his ass. It's never really mentioned what happened to him either, whether he died or simply left the school]].

* {{Hypocrite}}: Reggie, in his introduction, gave a speech to Atticus about how he took an oath to protect the privacy of others and try not to turn the entire school into a surveillance police state. But then in "Loser Generated Content," Reggie has absolutely no problem using the book to spy on Todd, tear apart his life, and watch in glee as [[spoiler: Todd's life is destroyed and he dies at the hands of the girl he loved]].

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Reggie from "Loser Generated Content" may have been a petty loser whom nobody took seriously but with the book, he orchestrated a plot that pretty much [[spoiler: destroyed Todd's life and led to his death at Jenny's hands]].

** It was also heavily implied from the "dog hair" that Todd found in the Metal Dudes' car in the final episode that [[spoiler: the three Metal Dudes also had the ability to fuse together into a wolf-like being and not just any wolf either, but THE very wolf who raped Atticus Murphy Jr. and kickstarted his StartOfDarkness.]]

* ImpliedLoveInterest: Because the heavy metal musical Atticus wrote for Todd and Jenny was based on his own life, from having a Satanist father all the way down to the wolf rape, it's heavily implied that the girl Jenny played may very well have been based on a real life girl that Atticus had genuinely fallen in love with in the past but their relationship was tragically cut short by Atticus Murphy Senior who eventually put Atticus through the TraumaCongoLine. While it was possible that this mystery girl from Atticus Murphy's past could have been explored more in-depth had the show continued, the series' cancellation pretty much assured that this particular plot point with regards to Atticus Murphy's past would never see the light of day.

Added DiffLines:

* OutOfFocus: In the first season, any kid who got the book and unleashed a monster would get a fair amount of focus and character development, with all their motives, insecurities, and sympathetic traits explored in-depth, whether they were insecure bullies, gay kids who got bullied, fat girls who wanted to be skinny and more accepted, or lower IQ students who only wanted to become smarter. In the second season, however, all the Crowley High students who use the book get significantly less focus and many are treated as generic MonsterOfTheWeek characters with much less of the in-depth traits that made the book victims of the first season more sympathetic.

--> '''Teacher''': Well, none of the other will listen to me but every time those two run out of the room, it's bad news. So i'm going to go lock myself in the teacher's lounge and i'll see... some of you tomorrow.

* Retcon: [[spoiler: The story changes dramatically over the course of the series, partially because the concept of the "pure evil one" hadn't been written into it yet. Todd is the first shown wielder of the book, but it doesn't trigger the apocalypse as the second season predicted it would. Furthermore the subplot with Hannah and her connection to the book, was not present in the first season.]]

* EasyEvangelism: It proves laughably easy for Atticus to convert the students of Crowley High to Satanism. Notably, the illustrated pamphlet his minions distribute to their fellow students resembles the infamous Creator/JackChick tracts.
