* {{Curse}}: "Curse of the Krumm" reveals that Krumm's species ([[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep which are all called 'krumm']]) are cursed to [[spoiler: eventually lose their stench]]. With his friends' help, he manages to break it.
** No, this was his family specifically. It usually skips a generation which was why his father never told him.

* BizarreAlienBiology: Monsters come in many shapes and sizes, most utterly different, and they can shapeshift, but there are a few general traits they all share. First and foremost, underground tunnels in garbage dumps and sewers are their natural habitat: they physically need to breathe filthy "dump air", and will suffocate in clean air. To get around this, they fill internal air sacks with dump air before venturing into the human world above, which is enough to last them for several days. Similarly, monsters literally eat human garbage, and find the taste of normal, fresh human food to be completely disgusting (Oblina did force herself to drink human tea when posing as a human, so it isn't ''toxic'' to them, but it isn't clear if they can even get nutrition from it). When a frightened boy who discovers the monsters asks if they intend to eat him, Oblina dismisses the idea as disgusting. Monster reproduction is discussed in "Attack of the Blobs": baby monsters start out as shapeless blobs (literally called "blobs", and "babysitting" is "blobsitting"). These eventually form into a cocoon, and hatch into immature toddler-forms called "bonsties" - which have a voracious appetite and will even eat other monsters if no other food is given to them.
** Monsters are based on magic, not just biology. If enough humans outright stop being scared of monsters and stop believing in them, they literally cease to exist - by parts of their bodies horrifically winking out of existence. When this happens in one episode monsters lose the entire left half of their body, or Ickis is reduced to just a head, or they disappear completely.

justified in that onsters are based on magic, not just biology.biology; they're literally {{elemental embodiment}}s of fear.

When this happens in one episode monsters lose the entire left half of their body, or Ickis is reduced to just a head, or they disappear completely.
* BizarreAlienReproduction: Building on from the trope above, monster reproduction is discussed in "Attack of the Blobs": baby monsters start out as shapeless blobs (literally called "blobs", and "babysitting" is "blobsitting"). These eventually form into a cocoon, and hatch into immature toddler-forms called "bonsties" - which have a voracious appetite and will even eat other monsters if no other food is given to them.



* ImAHumanitarian: Averted; according to "The Switching Hour", monsters do not eat humans and find the idea disgusting. However, they apparently have little problem with ''eating other monsters'', as Oblina notes to a human in disguise after the Gromble makes a threat about doing so.
** A few episodes later, the Gromble actually ''does'' eat a student, though he does spit him out.
** Another episode involves Ickis, Oblina and Krumm babysitting a "bonsty" -- or newly born baby monster. Unfortunately for them, this one belongs to a species that, for the first 24 hours of its life, eats everything in sight, favoring other monsters.
** In "The Rival", a stressed-out Oblina threatens to have Ickis for dinner when he tells her that she's imagining the rivalry between herself and new student Smeldra.

* MonstrousCannibalism: According to the first episode, whilst monsters find the idea of eating humans to be disgusting, they don't have quite the same aversion to the idea of eating each other. This is made drastically clear in the same episode, where the Gromble eats one of his students for literally having a running nose. Yes, he spits off to the side a moment later, but it's unclear if he's spat out the student or just the excess mucus ''from'' the student.
** In "Krum Goes to Hollywood", the Gromble chews Ickis up like gum and inflates him into a balloon as part of his efforts to force a confession about Krum's presece.
** In another episode, the Gromble swallows Krumm, chews on him and then violently spits him across the room.
** In fact, the Gromble does this so much his ''toy'' came with a unique small monster student figure to chew on.
** Another episode involves Ickis, Oblina and Krumm babysitting a "bonsty" -- or newly born baby monster. Unfortunately for them, this one belongs to a species that, for the first 24 hours of its life, eats everything in sight, favoring other monsters. It almost eats the Gromble!

* RunningGag: In "Krumm Goes Hollywood," Oblina scares an unnamed member of the production crew so badly he's left unable to say anything besides "[[MadnessMantra I like rice]]." The guy made periodic appearances in the show, still traumatized, and in one episode he's in a mental institution and almost cured before he gets scared again.

** His former mentor, the elderly, [[HighClassGlass monocled]] Balook is even stricter than he is.

** He does this kind of thing to his students regularly enough that the Gromble's action figure came with a little student monster figure for him to chew on!

* '''Ickis''', a little red UglyCute monster who [[IAmNotWeasel often got mistaken for a bunny]], [[BerserkButton much to his dismay]]. [[SizeShifter Could grow to impressive sizes]], but wasn't very good at controlling this change at the start of the series, and frequently struggled with his scares. Tended to be both [[{{Pride}} arrogant]] and very insecure, due in no small part to trying to live up to his [[TheAce famous father's reputation]]. Despite his bumbling and trouble-prone nature, also [[BigDamnHeroes saved the day]] more than once.

* RealAfterAll: One episode had the PowerTrio trapped in a severely haunted house, the rub being that while monsters exist, ghosts do not (this is repeatedly stated by [[strike:Hermione]] Oblina). It turned out that the house was the bunker/battle ground for a soldier monster who caused all of the strange happenings - except one. All four monsters quickly leave, and the house resumes all of its disturbing behavior.

* [[ShamingTheMob Shaming The Cowards]]: The Gromble berates the entire student body for spreading rumors about Ickis' spontaneous combustibility and their trepidation around him because of it. Basically they were acting like everything they hate: [[spoiler:[[HumansAreTheRealMonsters humans]]]].
