* ReluctantMonster: Mr. Bumpy hears about a monster under the bed that is freaking his boy out, and resolves to deal with it. After an investigation, Squishington deduces that the monster is in fact Mr. Bumpy, and his late-night, hard-partying ways are scaring the boy awake. Mr. Bumpy is upset by this, since he loves his boy, since he's the primary source of the cool stuff he has and the dirty socks he eats.

* CyberneticsEatYourSoul: In Farewell 2 Arms, Molly's arm gets accidentally ripped off and Bumpy gives her a spare ape arm as a replacement to try and cheer her up. She then replaces her other arm with a hair dryer from the Cuties, her legs with Destructo's, and her torso with a tin can, getting deeper and deeper into a power trip until she ends up replacing her own head and creating an entirely new monster.
