* {{Foreshadow}}: In ''Wrath of the Spider Queen'' during a flashback when Boogy cheats during the Reaper election he states the only way someone could win the election fairly after the ballot is stuffed is if everyone remaining voted for that person. [[spoiler:It turns out this is actually how Grim won. He stopped Boogy from cheating then replaced all the voting ballots with ones that had Velma's name on them instead. When Velma thought he rigged it for himself he chased Boogy down and did a terrifying performance in front of the whole school, so everyone who hadn't voted yet voted for him instead of Velma or Boogy.]]

** A much less obvious example would be Mandy herself. Not only did she get dragged into the same misadventures as the rest of the group, but she was tortured with horrible nightmares for hours, got kissed by Irwin against her will, had to face her worst fears and ran away screaming, then got beaten up by bears and as if all this was not bad enough it turns out [[spoiler: that she did not even win this time and didn't get to own Horror's Hand.]]

* JackassGenie: Zig-zagged with the wishing skull, Thromnambular. In a few cases, he twists wishes around (Mindy wishes to be a "big star," and he straps her to a rocket; Pudd'n wishes for a bunny rabbit, so he conjures up a psychotic one). However, the majority of the wishes going bad are actually the fault of the ''wisher''--Harold wants to relive his glory days in high school, but they were actually horrible; Sperg wants to be a girl so he can rob other girls in the school bathroom, but fails to account for AlphaBitch Mindy; and Irwin wants to be in a music video with Mandy, forgetting that she hates him.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Grim and Mandy have had a number of potential moments, usually involving leaving Billy to a CoolAndUnusualPunishment.
** Billy, though a good kid, has tried to kill his "adopted" son just because he's afraid of spiders.
** Irwin has allowed a Pyramid to be built in his honor, regardless of whether or not everybody remains brainwashed.
** Nergal forces a number of people, including the viewer, into transforming into his "[[WasOnceAMan Friends]]" in the second episode he appears in.
** Boogey does it all the time but one stands out in ''Wrath of the Spider Queen.'' During the contest for who would become the future Grim Reaper, Velma was close to winning, but Boogey decided to rig the voting. When Velma finds out, [[spoiler: she thinks Grim tried to cheat]], costing him his only friend.
** [[SadistTeacher Ms. Butterbean]] in ''Substitute Creature'' when she ignored Sperg bullying Junior because he bribed her with an apple. The drawer filled with apples makes clear that this has happened lots of times. To really [[KickTheDog twist the knife]], she tells Junior that it's okay for Sperg to do it because he was bigger. You don't feel bad when Junior glues her to the ceiling and takes her form.
** Mindy has had her fair share of moments from attempting to incinerate Mandy for taking her place as cheerleader of the team to beating up Billy with knuckles for being a loser. And let's not even mention Underfist...
** Sperg lives by being his usual abusive self but he went even beyond it by resorting to cannibalism and eating Pud'n's arms and legs.

* AccidentalMisnaming: "Guess What's Coming to Dinner" had a running gag of Eris and Hoss Delgado getting Principal Goodvibes' name wrong, often addressing him with different names beginning with the word "good".

* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: The early episodes are a lot darker and morbid in tone. After a few episodes though the series hit its stride and evolved into the wacky, nonsensical show it's known as.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: The show is more cynical than your typical kids show. However, there is a fair amount of idealism still left in this series.

* ShapeShifting

to:

* ShapeShiftingSeriesContinuityError: The series tends to have loose continuity, but one particularly glaring continuity error is in "Waking Nightmare", where a gag involves Grim farting as he sits down and initially thinking the noise to be a whoopie cushion, when the earlier episode "Duck!" had Grim make it perfectly clear that he is incapable of flatulence.


Added DiffLines:

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Nergal's son Nergal Jr. can take on anyone's appearance.

TheGrimReaper has come for a soul -- specifically, a hamster in his dying days -- but he's stopped from taking the hamster to the afterlife by two polar-opposite children: The [[DumbIsGood blissfully idiotic Billy]] (the hamster's owner) and [[CreepyChild the cynical, amoral Mandy]] (Billy's best friend.) [[ChessWithDeath The pair challenge "Grim" to a limbo contest to save the hamster]]; when Grim loses, he becomes Billy and Mandy's newest friend -- and by "friend," we mean that he's contractually bound to cater to their every whim. Grim begrudgingly serves as something of an underworld version of Film/MaryPoppins, thanklessly placating Billy's demands for cheap entertainment and Mandy's schemes for self-profit with his magical scythe while desperately trying to find a way to be rid of the duo for good. Thus go ''The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy'', a popular Creator/CartoonNetwork series created by Maxwell Atoms.
