** Hoss Delgado defines this trope. He has fought TheGrimReaper several times, is a threat to monsters, and has a steel fist that can change to just about any weapon (In Underfist, it's a chainsaw leg, though.)

* BadassCrew: Underfist, natch.



* BiggerOnTheInside: Grim's trunk. Billy points this out by name in one episode when he, Mandy, and Irwin climb inside it.

* CoolPlane: ''Underfist'' was intended to have the "Fistflyer", with speeds of up to Mach 4; like Hoss' tank, it's got a giant metal fist mounted to the front that Jeff would use to punch threats. It's briefly glimpsed during the credits of the ''Underfist'' special.



** A RunningGag in later seasons is that Mandy never smiles... except she has in early episodes as seen under PerpetualFrowner. Also, the ''Grim & Evil'' episodes were ''much'' darker in tone.

** In the movie ''Underfist'', Billy gives Hoss Del-Gado a weapon called the Candy Blaster that he states is able to OneHitKill any single piece of candy. Near the end of the movie, Irwin and Hoss find themselves locked in a combat with a massive monster comprised of all the mutated chocolate monsters from before. Seeing no better moment, Hoss decides to use the Candy Blaster on the monster...which turns out to be Billy...who then proceeds [[BigEater to devour the entire beast]] and winds up with a big BalloonBelly to boot.

* EvilIsNotAToy + BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Thromnambular (voiced by Dwight Schultz, no less).

* {{Hammerspace}}: Where Hoss Delgado keeps his various hand attachments (they're normally seen shifting into place from somewhere inside his arm).



* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Principal Goodvibes is most likely an {{Expy}} of Paul Lynde.

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: ''Underfist'' in a nutshell- a spectral exterminator, a hybrid mummy-vampire-nerd, an ex-paramilitary officer, a giant talking spider, and a little elephant-demon creature, all of whom find themselves working together to put an end to an invasion of demonic candy.



* SuddenlyFluentInGibberish: In the ''Underfist'' special, Irwin pleads with Hoss, Skarr, and Jeff that, among other things, Mindy was kidnapped by a marshmallow bunny. However, his hysterical InelegantBlubbering couldn't be understood by anyone save Jeff, who speaks "crybaby."

Added DiffLines:

* TankGoodness: Hoss owns a giant fist-and-arm shaped one in ''Underfist'', which partially provides the team's name. It bursts out of the ground blaring "La Cucaracha" for its' horn.

** Also a result of {{Flanderization}} since in the ''Grim & Evil'' shorts and some episodes of earlier seasons did show her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI1670PVrsM smiling more]]. Not a whole lot more, but not to "must never smile" extremes.

* {{Bizarrchitecture}}: In "Substitute Creature" it's shown that Endsville Elementary is built on a mesa in a desert. This was likely just for a one-time gag, as later episodes depict the school having a football field.

* HellHasNewManagement: There's an episode where the three main characters have nightmares. Billy and even Grim are both terrorized by their dreams, but in Mandy's dream she actually takes over Hell and becomes the Lord of Darkness.
