* AluminumChristmasTrees: Billy calling Mandy "Manfred"[[note]]ItMakesSenseInContext[[/note]] is just him being an idiot, right? '''''Wrong!''''' Manfred is actually a real (albeit uncommon) name for males in real life.

* DontFearTheReaper: Grim tries his darndest to be scary, but at his most {{badass}}, the guy's still an incompetent wuss. The way he became the Grim Reaper involved a pretty awesome display as revenge for [[spoiler:ruining his friendship with his best friend.]] So he's somewhat weak-willed..[[BewareTheNiceOnes Unless you manage to REALLY piss him off.]]

* DeathAndTheMaiden: In "Grim In Love", Grim falls in love with a Goth woman named Malaria. She shares his sadistic sense of humor and they both enjoy each other's company. By the end, he reveals to her that he is the real Grim Reaper and that all of his friends are actual monsters, leading her to [[spoiler:run away in sheer terror]].

* {{Badass}}: Several characters fall into this trope.
** Grim. He may be a [[TheChewToy Chew Toy]] to Billy and Mandy, but he's professional at being TheGrimReaper, and has been shown several times that he can keep a fight with Hoss Delgado.
** Mandy. She's the wrong little girl to mess with, especially when she gets [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]]. She even defeated ''Eris'' for betraying her.
** 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'', he gained a chainsaw leg, to boot.)

* AttackOfThePoliticalAd: Kind of- Grim and Nergal duke it out over their own pizza recipes in one episode; their ads duel each other, mocking each other- ie. when Nergal claims that Grim puts bugs in his pizza, Grim counters with Nergal's supposed usage of dirty socks and underwear.

* 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.

* 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."

* 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.
