** There's also an episode about vampiric {{Monster Clown}}s that could give [[Literature/{{It}} Pennywise]] a run for his money.
** Some of the monsters and stories can be really scary. Examples include the Cenobite-lookalikes and {{Monster Clown}}s above.

* HandicappedBadass: Garrett takes this trope UpToEleven. One fan theory is that the executives wanted a character in a wheelchair, as was growing ever more popular, and the creators responded by turning their gung-ho jock character into the wheelchair-bound one... and having him act like he didn't know he was handicapped.

The writers weren't fond of the wheelchair-bound one... meddling, so they gave them their wheelchair - and having made him act like he didn't know he was handicapped.their TeamJock.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In many cases, the Ghostbusters defeat the MonsterOfTheWeek through their own tricks. Most notably is when Kylie and Eduardo turn an orb that marked anyone who looked at it as a target for a ghost who steals eyes on said ghost, causing all its victims to regain their eyesight.

* InspirationallyDisadvantaged: Played every way but InSpace (and technically even that if you count {{Negative Space Wedgie}}s as space). [[HandicappedBadass Garrett]] isn't treated any better or worse because of the fact that he's in a wheelchair, and actually tends bounce between ButtMonkey and TheDeterminator. Lampshaded at the end of "Deadliners" by the trapped author referring to him as "the [[{{wangst}} whiney]] wheelchair kid" in his [[MetaFiction new book]] despite Garret being largely responsible for saving them all.

* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Kylie gets kidnapped by the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Ghost Of The Week]] an amazing number of times. Then she is promptly released once the ghost realizes they cannot manipulate her (like the ghost clown that couldn't make her laugh).

The show takes place ten years after the original Ghostbusters disbanded after they captured all the ghosts. While Ray Stantz, Peter Venkman, and Winston Zeddemore move away, Egon Spengler stays in UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity, living in the Firehouse with Slimer and working as an instructor for the class "Paranormal Phenomena 101" at a community college. But when construction workers inadvertently release a new breed of ghosts, Egon has little choice but to form a new team of Ghostbusters using his students: standoffish {{Goth}} Kylie Griffin, [[DeadpanSnarker wisecracking]] [[TheSlacker slacker]] Eduardo Rivera, GadgeteerGenius Roland Jackson and HandicappedBadass Garrett Miller. Janine Melnitz, Egon's fifth and final student, returns to work as the Ghostbusters' receptionist, accountant and collector. Slimer returns to his role as NonHumanSidekick, when he's not eating everything in sight.

** The series justifed this by pointing out most people believe the fantastic hoaxes were cooked up by the Ghostbusters as part of a scam. On at least one occasion though, the police showed that they did at least believe that the group didn't rob a bank. But as the crook had one of their proton guns, they were forced to bring them in for questioning.

* DisabledMeansHelpless: Garrett is hardly this trope - he's a pair of guns with a body attached - but he is savvy enough to [[ExploitedTrope exploit]] it.

Added DiffLines:

* InsultBackfire: In "Home is Where the Horror Is," Garrett [[SelfDeprecation insults himself]] to try to sound less appealing to the mansion's [[ImAHumanitarian carnivorous monsters]]. It doesn't work:
-->'''Garrett''': You don't want me. I'm nothing but skin and bones.\\
'''"Old lady"''': Ah, but skin and bones are my favorite parts. ''(unveils her true demonic form while speaking, complete with SlasherSmile)''

Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: The show is a SequelSeries to ''The Real Ghostbusters'', but much of the returning castmembers have personalities more in line with the series' more well-liked earlier seasons, and don't make any mention of the Junior Ghostbusters or Louis Tully.

** Kylie, for example, is said to like ''NineInchNails''; she is also compared to Creator/{{Vampira}} (to her consternation).

Developed by Jeff Kline and Richard Raynis, ''Extreme Ghostbusters'' is a SequelSeries to ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'' (which was itself a SpinOff of the first ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' film), airing for one season in [[TheNineties late 1997]].

* 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.

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.Roland. To be fair, Garrett does bring up that they need to find the rest of the clowns' victims.
