** In "The Buck Starts Here", Jared accuses Whit of telling the mayor of Odyssey to pass a new ''puberty'' tax. (It was actually a ''property'' tax.)

** Episode 438's B-story is a [[ShootTheShaggyDog "parable"]] about how two men end up in Hell despite taking completely different paths in life. On Kid's Radio, in-universe!

* MoralEventHorizon: Doug is already established as a JerkAss from the very beginning of "In Harm's Way", and already did quite a few things that were uncalled for on his part early in the episode (a particular point of note, shoving Dyllan out of the way off a cliff during a bike race), but he easily crosses it when he threatens to ''kill Elliot,'' in the name of revenge no less! [[note]]Elliot is the main focus of the episode; he's a deaf kid that originally ruins Dyllan's chances of winning the bike race at the beginning which causes him to hold a grudge against him, and his prejudice over the way that he "looks weird" to him doesn't help. Later on at Whit's End he ends up accidentally embarrassing Doug, which is what leads him to plot revenge.[[/note]] Making matters worse is that Doug deceives Elliot about halfway through the episode as well, saying that he just "[[BlatantLies wants to be his friend]]" and of course says he has a way to get people to like him...which involves making him take a bike ride off of Suicide Hill. ''Then'' after Dyllan manages to save Elliot, Doug has the ''nerve'' to call it hilarious, and make the claim that [[ExactWords Elliot wanted to do it.]] [[LaserGuidedKarma Mr. Whitaker notifies Doug of the phone call to his parents that he is due to make as a result,]] which almost seems tame considering he doesn't even raise his voice.
* NightmareFuel: "A Twist In Time" features Dylan and Sal entering the (not yet unveiled) Room Of Consequences and being shown a very grim future where they have been missing for decades and Whit and their families exhausted themselves (physically and financially) [[IWillFindYou trying to find the boys]], and as a result, Whit is implied to have passed away penniless and in very poor health, [[MessOfWoe Whit's End is in shambles]], and an elderly and nearly senile Eugene is trying to keep the place standing. At least [[AllJustADream it was just a simulation]] and isn't the actual future of Whit's End and the people involved with it, but still, Dylan and Sal were lucky to get through that without being traumatized in some way.

* WhatAnIdiot: "Shadow of a Doubt" has a villain who practically [[NiceJobFixingItVillain foils his own plot]]. He starts off by meeting Dyllan in the park, catching him taping everybody he runs across.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That he would just keep his quiet and move right along. Even if Dyllan caught footage of the burglar, his footage has ''zero evidence'' of anyone he taped being the burglar, especially considering the culprit wasn't even wearing his disguise. Even if Dyllan showed all his footage to the police, nothing in it could have been considered anything remotely suspicious.\\
'''Instead:''' The burglar lures Dyllan into his own house and ties him up to a chair, showing him ''every single last piece of evidence that he's the burglar,'' spelling out his entire plan. His logic is to destroy Dyllan's footage so he has no evidence to show (despite the fact that his footage ''couldn't have even counted as evidence to start with!''), then move onto the next town to steal more valuables. Oh, ''and'' he spells out the entire rest of his EvilPlan in front of Dyllan, right down to every single detail on how he got Mr. Whitaker framed to begin with. Even if he got away, he would have had a giant target over his head once the next town fell victim to him. And what was he to expect if the police or any other adult found Dyllan tied up to that chair?\\
'''Result:''' [[spoiler:Dyllan is able to escape the burglar and reach the courthouse just in time to prove Mr. Whitaker's innocence, exposing the cat burglar as the real criminal.]]\\
'''To Be Fair:''' The episode ''does'' have PoliceAreUseless and HollywoodLaw in full force, so they may not have listened to Dyllan anyway [[spoiler:had he not escaped with enough true evidence]], and it's clearly meant to be your typical villain exposition, but the cat burglar probably could still go down in history as the least competent burglar to ever walk the streets.

** An early, skit-based episode "The Devil Made Me Do It"'s final act is a demon awards show where the final nominee is Satan for tempting Jesus in the desert. However, the show goes horribly awry when, of course, Jesus resists the temptation and quotes scripture at him. Not only is the voice for Satan absolutely monstrous, but the awards show dissolves in panic down to a "Technical Difficulties" jingle glitching out into silence and the episode just ends.

* ToughActToFollow: "The Green Ring Conspiracy", the first major saga since Novacom, is constantly scrutinized in comparison to its predecessor and the Blackgaard saga. One camp loves GRC, another camp hates it and considers it emblematic of the missteps they see the show having taken since the relaunch, and another camp just thinks [[SoOkayItsAverage it's decent without being anything really stand-out.]]
** The episodes following Novacom have also taken a fair amount of heat for what fans see as being boring, goofy, or otherwise lackluster in comparison to the excitement of a story about a corporation trying to take over the world.

** The disguised voice in "The Search for Whit, Part 2", that gives a lackey named Benjamin instructions. It comes [[JumpScare completely out of nowhere]], and it's [[HellIsThatNoise a rather unnerving sound]].
