* {{Zonk}}: Mr. Boddy would periodically arrange various contests for his guests. Sometimes the prizes were genuinely valuable (usually cash or a valuable treasure); other times, they were gag prizes (and at least once the "prize" was a punishment). Examples included a tug-of-war competition in which each member of the winning team would receive a rare Boddy treasure ([[spoiler:a big kiss on the nose from Mr. Boddy]]), a game of bobbing for apples in which one of the apples contains a golden nugget ([[spoiler:actually a nugget of caramel candy]]), a snowball fight ([[spoiler:in which the winning team got ice cream cones]]), a competition to paint the most doors in the mansion's downstairs ([[spoiler:everyone got a prize - bars of soap to clean the paint off their hands]]) and a horse race ([[spoiler:everyone's "prize" was being forced to muck out the stalls, since Boddy had gotten angry with them for fighting over who was the best rider and demanding a race to prove who ''was'' best]]). There was also one contest (a lottery drawing) with a half real, half zonk prize; while the guests weren't too happy about playing for the zonk (a chance to see Mr. Boddy compete in a tennis tournament being held at some point later on), they ''did'' want to win the money he was also putting up. [[spoiler:After Boddy lost badly in the tournament, the winning guest graciously gave him some of the prize money to spend on private lessons.]]

* AbsentMindedProfessor: Professor Plum, who is so bad that he once forgot he was talking to someone in the middle of a sentence. In one book, he explains this by stating that he suffers memory loss if he gets less than twenty-five hours of sleep a day.

* GossipEvolution: A variant happens in the last chapter of book 4; one character whispers "Would Boddy be mad if we all left and went into town? Pass it on!" to the person next to them; they spoke too quietly to be heard accurately though, and the next person "passes on" a different phrase. By the time it's gone around the table and started a second round, the last person hears "Boddy is afraid someone will steal his solid gold crown." Later that night, they go after Boddy and demand the nonexistent crown; when he won't hand it over, they kill him. [[spoiler: As luck would have it, they fail twice - first by accidentally using a starter pistol instead of the real Revolver; when they realize their mistake and get the real weapon, they fire ''that'' at him and miss.]]
