* DarkerAndEdgier: While the show retains the trademark ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' humor, it treats the horror elements more seriously than either the movies or ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Even though the ghosts victims are usually shown returned at the end of an episode, at the end of "Killjoys," the only one shown to be fine is Roland.

* FlatEarthAtheist: Although routinely dealing with the supernatural several of the damage refuse to believe in luck..

* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: Garrett writes a short story starring himself (he has his teammates die after the first page so he can be the sole hero and avenge them). According to Eduardo, there's nothing in the story to grab the reader and it's "[[InvincibleHero just 40 pages of [Garrett] blowing away ghosts and chasing skirts]]."

* HypocriticalHumor: In "Back in the Saddle, Part 1", Eduardo expresses irritation with Peter's ego. Garrett also mocks his use of a BondOneLiner.
-->'''Garrett:''' Who talks like that?



* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: With the exception of Kylie, the new team look like dead ringers for the original Ghost Busters, especially Garrett (who looks like Ray) and Roland (who looks like Winston).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: With the exception of Kylie, the new team look like dead ringers for the original Ghost Busters, especially Eduardo was pretty clearly modeled on Peter, being sarcastic and often irritated with Slimer. Garrett (who looks like Ray) and Roland (who looks like Winston).are visually reminiscent of Ray and Winston, respectively, but their characteristics were vastly different. Kylie averted the trope outright.


Added DiffLines:

* WeHelpTheHelpless: Lampshaded by Peter, who noted the pay had a tendency to be non-existent.

* AscendedFanboy: Garrett was a die-hard fan of the originals, which was why he signed up for Egon's class. Roland also qualifies. Being a techie, he was quite fascinated by Ecto-1 and their hardware in general.

* AscendedFanboy: Three of the new team qualify in different ways. Garrett was a die-hard fan of the originals, which was why he signed up for Egon's class. Roland also qualifies. Being Roland, being a techie, he was quite fascinated by Ecto-1 and their hardware in general. Kylie has a massive interest in the supernatural in general.


Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Like in the first movie, the new team initially starts with three members and adds a fourth one a little later.

* {{Jerkass}}: Mayor McShane, who brushed off and discredited Egon in the first episode, then ignoring the team's warnings in ''Luck of the Irish'' and took the credit for resolving the situation at the end of the episode. Depending on the in-universe chronology of events, might also count as KarmaHoudini.[[note]]The only time he got the closest thing to a comeuppance was when he had to tear up the Ghostbuster's bills in the episode with the Piper.[[//note]]

* ShoutOut: Much more so than in ''RGB''. Kylie, for example, is said to like ''NineInchNails''; she is also compared to {{Vampira}} (to her consternation).
** "Don't touch that pudding! [[TimeBandits It's evil]]!"

** There's also an episode about vampiric KillerClowns that could give [[Creator/StephenKing Pennywise]] a run for his money.
** Some of the monsters and stories can be really scary. Examples include the Cenobite-lookalikes and KilerClowns above.

He's also shown doing an assignment for a ''Philosophy'' class for one episode. Granted, he just copy-pasted elements of multiple articles, but he's doing that with at least 6 different books.

** There's also an episode about KillerClowns written by StephenKing himself. It's as creepy as it sounds.
