* {{Retraux}}: One episode had the trio wind up in a world made to homage the black and white cartoons from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation. Too bad Mandy puts a stop to it, since she despises retro cartoons.

* DeusExMachina: Grim, but more specifically, his scythe Two humorous examples occur in "Billy's Growth Spurt." When Billy eats too much junk food, Mandy and Grim try to cook up Grim's granny's famous healing recipe to heal him. The key ingredient is "screaming meemies"; to get them, Grim remarks that an interdimensional rift would have to open in the kitchen. A few seconds later, one does. At the end of the episode, Granny's remedy doesn't work; Mandy wonders aloud if the remedy has an antidote, and Granny quite literally appears in a thought bubble and passes her a bottle of "Heebie-Jeebie Juice," which can do anything.wraps everything up.

In a few cases, he twists wishes around (Mindy wishes to be a "big star," and he straps her to a rocket; Pudd'n wishes for a bunny rabbit, so he conjures up a psychotic one). However, the majority of the wishes going bad are actually the fault of the ''wisher''--Harold wants to relive his glory days in high school, but they were actually horrible; Sperg wants to be a girl so he can rob other girls in the school bathroom, but fails to account for AlphaBitch Mindy; and Irwin wants to be in a music video with Mandy, forgetting that she hates him.

TheGrimReaper has come for a soul -- specifically, a hamster in his dying days -- but he's stopped from taking the hamster to the afterlife by two children: The [[DumbIsGood blissfully idiotic Billy]] (the hamster's owner) and [[CreepyChild the cynical, amoral Mandy]] (Billy's best friend.) [[ChessWithDeath The pair challenge "Grim" to a limbo contest to save the hamster]]; when Grim loses, he becomes Billy and Mandy's newest friend -- and by "friend," we mean that he's contractually bound to be the kids' friend and cater to their every whim. Grim begrudgingly serves as something of an underworld version of Film/MaryPoppins, thanklessly placating Billy's demands for cheap entertainment and Mandy's schemes for self-profit with his magical scythe while desperately trying to find a way to be rid of the duo for good. Thus go ''The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy''.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Billy calling Mandy "Manfred"[[note]]ItMakesSenseInContext[[/note]] is just him being an idiot, right? '''''Wrong!''''' Manfred is actually a real (albeit uncommon) name for males in real life.
