* JerkassWoobie: Slappy. That ''doesn't'' excuse the destruction he's caused, but you do pity the fact that [[AndIMustScream Stine locked him away along with the other monsters in the manuscripts]].

* JerkassWoobie: Slappy. That ''doesn't'' excuse the destruction he's caused, but you do pity the fact that [[AndIMustScream Stine locked him away along with the other monsters in the manuscripts]]. Though considering that Stine probably locked them in there because they were evil, it's more or less justified.

* DesignatedHero: Evan from ''Monster Blood'' and Sarah from ''Curse of Camp Cold Lake''. The former ''repeatably'' uses monster blood to get revenge on his enemies, despite [[TooDumbToLive knowing full well how dangerous the stuff is]], while the latter acts like an idiot throughout the first half of her book, and then [[NeverMyFault blames her campers instead of trying to make amends.]]

* ''Goosebumps [=HorrorLand=]'': [[BigBad The Menace]], real name Karloff [[MeaningfulName Mennis]], is the psychotic owner of Panic Park, the precursor to [[AmusementParkOfDoom HorrorLand]] that was so scary, it somehow ended up in an alternate universe. The Menace conducted experiments involving fear that involved using his own park as a testing ground. People would die or be traumatized riding on the attractions that either contained poor design or were just dangerous by nature. Later, he found out that [=HorrorLand=] was made on the spot that his park once stood, so he got contact with a Horror[[note]]the park employees that were real monsters[[/note]] to manipulate the protagonists to escape from [=HorrorLand=] into Panic Park. Once there, the Menace subjects the kids to horrific situations that not only scare them, but leave them mentally and physically changed. It's revealed that he's done this before, but the previous kids had died and he simply doesn't care. The other villains that were following him—even Slappy--forged an EnemyMine with the kids because they realized the Menace would kill them all eventually.

** However,in Sarah's case, the aforementioned campers did put a snake down her back and never really apologized. Also, one of the campers deliberately tried to push Sarah into the water despite Sarah saying that she can't swim well.

** However,in However, in Sarah's case, the aforementioned campers did put a snake down her back and never really apologized. Also, one of the campers deliberately tried to push Sarah into the water despite Sarah saying that she can't swim well. In Evan's case, he often gets misblamed by fans for using Monster Blood to get revenge on his tormentors, when in actuality the only time he ever agrees to do so is in the third book after much prodding from Andy, as Andy herself is the one who always brings up the Monster Blood in the sequels despite knowing how dangerous it is, and in the second book she's the one who feeds Cuddles the Monster Blood despite having promised Evan not to do so, making her fit into the DesignatedHero category.



*** Evan Ross, the main character, is a ButtMonkey like many of the other protagonists, but he's also incredibly whiny and stupidly insists on using Monster Blood to get revenge on his tormentors despite all the times it's already backfired on him.

*** Evan Ross, the main character, is a ButtMonkey like many of the other protagonists, but he's also incredibly whiny and stupidly insists on using Monster Blood often comes across as just plain dumb to get revenge on his tormentors despite all the times it's already backfired on him.point of making him unsympathetic.



*** Said aforementioned relatives include Evan's Aunt Dee and her son Kermit. Kermit is a SpoiledBrat InsufferableGenius that spends most of his page time either using Evan as a guinea pig for his insane experiments (that almost always backfire) or getting Evan in trouble just to see him either punished or beaten up. Aunt Dee lets Kermit do whatever he wants and always believes his lies about Evan picking fights, leading her to scold him and treat him like crap.

* NightmareRetardant: Despite being known as the series' most famous villain, Slappy is still a tiny wooden man, meaning the kid protagonists can usually shove him over without much effort, even if it only stops him for a moment.



* NarmCharm: Featuring a remix of the theme song and incorporating dozens of book titles into the lyrics, some fans might think it actually represents the books better than the movie.
