* EnsembleDarkhorse: The mummy from the episode "The Grave Robbers" is well liked for being a CrazyAwesome AffablyEvil MagnificentBastard. The fact that he's played by TopCat also helps.

* {{Squick}}: "A Case of the Stubborns" is about a man who refuses to believe he's dead and resumes living a normal life, or ''tries'' to. However, he fails to notice that he's ''decaying'' and starting to fester over time. He finally realizes he's no longer alive when he [[spoiler:''sneezes off his nose''. Then, we're treated to a GrossUpCloseUp of his nose]].

* TooDumbToLive: The mother in the closing minute of "Ursa Minor". Yeah, don't bother climbing out of your window and escaping with your daughter. Screaming in the corner, while [[spoiler: Ursa Major is about to break down the door with her arm and enter the room]] is CLEARLY safer! ...sigh...
** The mother in the ending of "The Serpent's Tooth." After she tries to reform and give up the magical item that makes everything she says come true, she retakes it because she is too attached to its power despite being ''warned'' by her family and friends that it is too dangerous. When her daughter gives her a WhatTheHellHero speech [[spoiler: the mother says that she loves her children so much that she would turn into a ''pillar of salt.'' She pretty much made herself suffer a FateWorseThanDeath.]]
