* KarmaHoudini: Played With regarding Manfred Gite from "Into the Comics". Whereas most villains were taken away by the police or punished severely in the end, Manfred [[spoiler:is simply escorted away from the contest grounds after the Ghostwriter gang thwarts him. What kind of punishment Manfred got after that [[LeftHanging was never revealed]]. It's implied that if nothing else, Manfred's aunt was prepared to [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech chew him out]].]] Considering some of the antics he pulled were illegal, that should have landed him in jail.

* JerkassWoobie: Many of the villains are so pathetic that it's pretty easy to feel sorry for them. A good example is Manny Gite from "Into the Comics". He was an awkward twentysomething who lived with his aunt and desperately wanted to be a cartoonist. In an attempt to acheive this, he enters a contest for kids (in which the prize was getting to be in a comic book) disguised as his cartoon character Stoopdude and tries to sabatoge the other contestants.

** A meta one: Rob is great with the English language so if he hadn't left, he could have been a second BigBrotherMentor to Hector, helping him master speaking English. Instead Rob leaves and some members of the fanbase hate on Hector for replacing him.

** Ghostwriter's ultimate identity- he was an escaped slave (possibly even Jamal's ancestor Ezra) who had taught himself to read and was teaching other slaves to read, up until slave catchers learned of what he was doing, and they and their dogs killed him. Somehow, his ghost ended up inside a book for ''125 years'' until Jamal freed him in the pilot. Yikes.

*** In the book where Alex gets kidnapped in the middle of a magic show, Gabby tearfully blames herself, in part because she and Alex had been bickering incessantly before the incident and also because she got the attention of the 2 stars who Alex witnessed arguing (they were among the main suspects and hadn't noticed Alex until Gabby yelled at him).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Victor, Rob's friend in "Building Bridges," seems to be very popular in the fandom. The producers must have noticed because he shows up in another episode despite not being particularly involved in the plot.
