For the latter, though, the answer was later confirmed as [[spoiler:yes.]]

* RasputinianDeath: If a character isn't killed instantly by something, chances are they'll go through quite a few more injuries before finally dying. The most well-known examples of this include Sniffles in "Tongue in Cheek", Lumpy in "The Choke's on You", and Flaky in "Ski ya, wouldn't wanna be Ya!

Potholing trope names in example lists is strictly forbidden. The rule is that you must always use the unaltered trope name. If alternate names exist, they must be accessed via wikiwords, not pothole markup. Added context, removed/assimilated Natter and fixed Example Indentation.

* AxCrazy: Flippy, when his evil side emerges, will kill everyone around him with no remorse. ** Quite ''why'' he's so utterly insane under his outgoing, if nervous, exterior was explored in the short ''Operation Tiger Bomb''. Let's just say it cemented Flippy's status as the most batshit crazy character in the series.

*** [[ToonPhysics Rule of]] [[RuleOfFunny funny.]] *** Flaky's death in "Wingin' It" and Sniffles' in "Idol Curiosity" are even weirder. In the former, after surviving a plane crash and shark attack, Godzilla comes out of nowhere and eats her. In the latter, after evading all of The Cursed Idol's traps, the earthquake he escaped from earlier somehow takes a cab and destroys his house. He manages to evade it again, only to break in half for no reason (this could be explained as an effect of his being cursed).

* DrivenToSuicide: Petunia in ''Wishy Washy''. When she got covered in gunk, after several failed attempts to clean it off, she skins herself with a ''potato peeler''. Ok...

Most notably, Lumpy is a dinosaur with a personality not unlike Flippy; Giggles is blue instead of pink; and the art style is almost nothing like seen in the actual series. ** The most unusual of all is that, after Toothy is decapitated, his head is somehow still alive and bites Lumpy in the foot. You'll never see something like that in the actual show.

* BanisterSlide: A more grim example than most in "Home Is Where the Hurt Is", where Giggles slides down a banister with nails sticking out of the top. [[GroinAttack Yeah.]] Even more so, by the time she's at the bottom she's completely split in half.

* ArtShift: During the height of the show's popularity, Mondo created the KA-POW! series. Basically, they're just Happy Tree Friends shorts made in different art styles. They include "Three Courses of Death", "Books of Fury", and "Enter the Garden," starring Buddhist Monkey, a [[ShowWithinAShow film character]] in the HTF universe; "Splendid's S-S-S-S-Super Squad"; "Operation Tiger Bomb", an origin story for Flipqy; and "Mole in the City". The Lumpy short "Ski Patrol" also has a different art style, but isn't considered a KA-POW! episode.
