* CutShort: Scooby-Doo and his friends never ''did'' catch all 13 ghosts. Technically, only 11 ghosts were shown being caught at all - and no ghosts were captured in the pilot.
** This is debatable, as there was an episode or two where they could have conceivably caught others. The last episode did seem to be written with EndOfSeriesAwareness.
** Also, outside the episodes that were shown, they might have returned one of the 13 ghosts to the chest.

* HeroicBSOD: In "It's a Wonderful Scoob," after a mishap with Time Slime's scepter shows him all the horrors he's faced in his life, Scooby becomes so traumatized that he goes into a TenMinuteRetirement. Vincent shows him a BadFuture to help snap him out of it, though.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: Most of the visible ghosts take this to another level. The only genuine, classical ghosts in there were the sunken ship ghosts. The others are all a mix match of attributes. Some like Maldor the Malevolent and Nicara are the EvilSorceror and Enchantress up to eleven. Queen Morbidia is sort of an Elvira like vampire with a legion of monsters. Marsella is a witch of general sorts. As far as more direct examples.
** Zomba, perhaps the most striking example, is the ghost of a zombie (orů something like that), although not mindless at all, who also has hypnotizing powers and the ability to [[TrappedInTVLand trap people inside TV shows]]. Exactly when she learned she could do that is unknown.
** The Time Slime by looks appears to be some kind of skeleton-like demon who is also something of a mechanical genius and time traveler. His end goal is described by Van Ghoul as a "mechanical wasteland"
** Demondo is a big sort of normal bulky demon who has "cosmic ink" that apparently can bring whatever is printed/drawn with it to life. He no doubt was very happy to have discovered comic strips when he escaped.

unknown, since she was sealed in the Chest long before movies were created.)
** Queen Morbidia is a sort of Elvira-like vampire who rules over monsters. Like Zomba, how being the ghost of a vampire works is left to our imaginaton.

** Professor Phantazmo is a rather deformed man who is an EvilRingLeader. His circus is disguised by calliope music but everyone in it seems to be some kind of actual supernatural being.
** Reflector Specter is an EldritchAbomination from beyond the mirror.
** Simbooroo described himself as a "lion demon", in which cases he sort of looks like a lion and sort of not. Scrappy calling him out as a "lying demon" is actually more accurate since by the looks of it his powers are shape shifting, teleporting and ordering other people to do work for him.

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: Down to the last ghost. While they are all referred to as ghosts, the series goes back and forth on whether they're actual demons or something else entirely. A couple of them even seem more like rival magic users to Van Ghoul rather than actual spirits.

* KnightOfCerebus: A majority of the 13 ghosts, if not all of them, are portrayed more seriously than the other characters, and [[LetsGetDangerous don't play any games either]]. Not too many of them seem to partake in the fourth wall humor the show has to offer either.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Several of the 13 Ghosts went after the Scooby gang directly with their worst tricks rather than wait around to be captured. It could count as GenreBlind, too, considering whose show this actually is.

* AllThereInTheManual: While his name in the show is never mentioned, the mirror demon's name is Reflector Specter. Which is hilariously used to identify him on the dvd subtitles. Somebody did their homework there.



* NinjaPirateZombieRobots: Most of the thirteen ghosts are this. The only genuine, classical ghosts in there were the sunken ship ghosts. The others are all the ghosts of something that's already strange and supernatural to begin with. Queen Morbidia, Nekara and Marcella were the ghosts of powerful witches, but that's still pretty common. However, the next ones are ''really'' this trope:
** Maldor the Malevolent is the ghost of a powerful EvilSorcerer.
** Zomba, perhaps the most striking example, is the ghost of a zombie (orů something like that), although not mindless at all, who also has hypnotizing powers and the ability to [[TrappedInTVLand trap people inside TV shows]]. (The fact that TV didn't exist yet at the time the Thirteen Ghosts were supposedly sealed in the Chest of Demons is ignored).
** The Time Slime is, apparently, the ghost of a MadScientist.
** Demondo is a green, vaguely human-shaped demon's ghost. With the power to trap people in comic books.
