* BottleEpisode: Almost every episode takes place fully in the castle of The Thing Upstairs, mostly within Berk's kitchen, where the trap door resides (ironically only a couple actually show inside the trap door).

** Played more straight when Rog helps deal with any of the monsters from the trap door. Especially so in "Scunge", where he uses the same trick on Bubo after he starts heckling them:
-->'''Rog:''' Berk doesn't like you... ''*nonchalantly smacks Bubo into the trap door*'' ...That was fun.

The titular trapdoor is a big wooden trap door in the castle's lower floors leading to a massive underground cave system full of monsters. At least once an episode the trap door would open up and release a monster for Berk and his friends to deal with as it causes chaos around the castle. Typically they manage to get rid of the monster by the end of the episode, but they have befriended one, a big dim-witted red monster named Rogg, who regularly pops out of the trap door to visit.

** Amusingly in this case though, it was also subverted in a way- given that afterwards, Rog cheerily waved to Berk from the window and then spoke to the audience about how much he liked him-

* BewareTheNiceOnes: Although Rog is generally considered to be one of the nicest and most easygoing characters, he can descend into this if pushed far enough, as seen in ''Junk Food''-
