* CompleteMonster: Lord Awesomo [[spoiler: or Gerald]] is the leader of the holy church of Crazy Bob, an insane cult operating out of an abandoned mall that commits evil acts in the name of their twisted version of 'irony'. He himself executes a man for eating a yoghurt by feeding him to the titular carnivorous substance, attempts to kill the protagonists, most of whom haven't done anything worse than touch Crazy Bob, manipulates his followers using peer pressure and threats of violence, eventually forcing them to fight an insane Holy war against a vastly superior opponent, knowing full well they'd die in the name of 'irony'. He attempts to justify his behavior by comparing his evil acts to his friend (and fellow religious leader) Princess Ravenhair asking people to vote up her fanfic. He claims to be a kind, caring, democratic leader, but this act (along with his nickname) shows he views his evil acts as merely being a petty game.

** X can count as well. The revelation that [[spoiler: she worked for a benign organization that was ultimately trying to help humanity, not destroy it]] means that her extreme measures of trying to keep her cover which included both withholding information on the jam and directly trying to murder Travis were only selfish attempts to save her own skin, not any actual organizational secrecy.

** JerkassWoobie: X and Y. [[spoiler: They didn't ''mean'' to cause the jampocalypse after all.]]

** JerkassWoobie: WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: X and Y. [[spoiler: They didn't ''mean'' to cause the jampocalypse after all.]]
** JerkassWoobie: [[OnlySaneMan Don]] counts as this. Yes, the man can be described as 'rude at best', but he's lost his job, all his friends are dead, he has to hang out with a group of utter idiots and [[spoiler: the only other survivor of the event leaves him.]] Can you blame him for being an utter twat?

* TheWoobie: Travis. He has a naturally submissive personality, and Tim and Don both abuse him for it. And everybody around him keeps either dying or trying to murder him.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs - It's batshit hatstand insane in every way possible.
** The sketch where a semi-naked man and a woman run through a forest around police officers singing "Mah Na Mah Na", while a dead body is found. They then proceed to sit on the body to squeeze out a noise into a bass clarinet in time with the music. Yeah...
** Not only is the source material, editing, soundtrack and general ambience extremely tripped out and unsettling, there's also the video remix version "Jaaaam" which is the same footage, but with each scene put through various visual filters - pixelation, solarisation, all sorts. It's ''extremely'' hard to watch in a darkened room and still feel sober.

* HighOctaneNightmareFuel - This troper was particularly horrified at the one where a man jumps into a wood chipper that sprays his bloody remains all over his ex's house (and into her face, as she was leaning out of the window).
** The man who wakes up and discovers he's just a head and a spinal column.
** The Gush.
** Most of it, really. The series, with few exceptions, is deliberately intended to make the viewer incredibly uncomfortable if not terrified. Unsurprising given that the opening more or less tells you it's about people who have totally broken down beyond all rationality.
** It has this effect on so many people that, according to TheOtherWiki, Jam came 26th in ChannelFour's top 100 scariest moments poll, beating actual horror works such as ''{{Carrie}}'' and ''SilenceOfTheLambs''.
