* EldritchAbomination: One of the types of monsters used in its dark and twisted take on {{Mons}} are Eldritch Abominations. The non-statted sample monster Dewdrop is an Eldritch Abomination take on a unicorn, while one of the statted sample monsters is a Lovecraftian monstrosity merged with a teddy bear named [[ShoutOut Yog-So`Soft]]. Both these and the more "normal" monsters tend to cause bouts of panic and madness in people who see them as well, further adding to it. There are also a few non-{{Mon}} antagonists that are also abominations.

* OlympusMons: The game is pretty much based on this concept. Your character (who may be anywhere from 8 to 18 years old depending on the game) has a pet monster that's his or her absolute best friend, and backs the character up in fights against other kids and their monsters. The adult world generally knows about these monsters, but is powerless to stop them - only monsters can really hurt other monsters, and they can tear through people and most earthly materials like tissue paper. Most monsters are some form of Eldritch Abomination to boot.

** ''Bigger Bads'' later modified the character powers rules from ''Candlewick'' so you can play a superpowered CreepyChild in the normal game. Some of the samples include being various non-human races, or being infused with Migojira (A giant fungus/dinosaur hybrid) cells.

These Creepy Children ''don't'' get monster friends in the normal game, and in ''Candlewick'', they have to actively find and befriend one of the various monsters hanging around the setting in the course of play to get one.

* ShoutOut: The game was never exactly shy about Shout Outs, but the sourcebook ''Bigger Bads'' probably wins for sheer volume and diversity, with references or homages to everything from ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'', to Creator/HPLovecraft, to {{Sentai}} shows, to ''{{Ultraman}}'', to the ComicBook/ChickTract "Dark Dungeons".

As well as the three versions of the main game there have been two alternate setting books (Curriculum of Conspiracy and The Dreadful Secrets of Candlewick Manor) and an expansion (Bigger Bads).

Monsters can take any form imaginable, but are universally terrible and powerful; they frequently combine elements from Lovecraftian cosmic horror (existing outside of normal dimensions, unnatural physiology etc.) and children's stories. They do not need to eat, drink or breathe, instead feeding on the emotional connections between human beings - especially children, with whom monsters form special bonds. They love their children and will do anything for them, though they are not necessarily obedient. It's mentioned that the world at large is aware of monsters, but because they are so good at remaining unnoticed children are usually the only humans with whom they interact.
