** A dual punch against the Lenny Ringtail in "Enter the Madkat" after he's no longer possessed by Madkat, courtesy of two of the people who most deserve to give it to him: Razor (who he ''ate'') and Feral (who he imprisoned in a magic box).
** A fatal version done to the second Megakat Biochemical Labs guard in "Katastrophe," with the mushroom monster's tentacle reaching towards him.

* SexySecretary: Callie shares some aspects of this character trope, but she's actually the ''Deputy Mayor!'' (And basically does the mayor's job for him, which makes her a HypercompetentSidekick.

** Another ship tease lost when the show got cancelled was T-Bone/Felina. In "Succubus!", although what they do is fight Katrina Moorkroft's {{Mooks}} in their gargoyle forms, they still (half-jokingly) refer to it as a date, and after Jake returns from the orchestra, Chance brags about his night out with Felina fighting monsters.

* UncertainDoom: While some death scenes (particularly Katscratch, Warden Meece and Mutilor) are pretty blatant, and even a few that [[KilledOffscren happen offscreen]] are confirmed in dialogue later (the guards in "Katastrophe"), quite a few aren't entirely clear:

** Manx's chauffeur. Sure, he isn't a terribly important character (he hasn't even got a name), but still. In "Katastrophe," we see a masked Mac wearing his clothes and posing as "the new guy" in order to [[NotMyDriver kidnap him]]. When Manx asks where his regular driver is, Mac simply replies, "Uh, he's out sick." The actual fate of the chauffeur is never revealed, and although Manx's limousine continues to appear, the chauffeur doesn't (or at least we never see who's driving).

Added DiffLines:

** "Enter the Madkat" never establishes what is done with Madkat after he's pushed out of Ringtail's body and returned to the jack-in-the-box. The episode seems weirdly more concerned about the fate of Ringtail himself rather than the very dangerous ghost who took over his body.


Added DiffLines:

* WillingChanneler: Lenny Ringtail lets Madkat possess him in order to get vengeance David Litterbin, in exchange for using Litterbin and others as surrogates for those who once wronged the evil jester. May overlap with SymbioticPossession, as Ringtail and Madkat effectively become the same individual with no one having more control over the body than the other (or at least, which, if either, has more control is unclear).
