** In one episode, Grim is seen watching a ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' parody called "My Troubled Pony" and enjoying it very much, in spite of the fact that he's a male adult and he's clearly not within the show's demographic. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fast forward to 2010...]]

* MagnificentBitch: Whenever Mandy brings her A-game. One particular is when she turned herself into a slug and tricking TheResistance into believing her [[WeaksauceWeakness weakness]] are frogs.

to:

* MagnificentBitch: MagnificentBastard: '''BILLY''', [[IdiotHero of all people]], achieves this status in the first half of "The Nerve". Sick of being bullied by [[TheBully Sperg]], he decides the best way to stand up for himself is to steal Mandy's raw nerve. Grim is initially reluctant to help him do this, until Billy slyly insinuates that, without her nerve, Mandy would be rendered unable to push Grim around. When he enters Mandy's head and finds the nerve, it vehemently refuses to go with him... but then Billy offers it a burrito, its favorite food - it's even [[CrazyPrepared a combo]] of the nerve's two favorite flavors!

** How unintentional is up for debate, but Irwin, Pud'n, and Sperg in "Tricycle of Terror" fall into this trope. While it could be argued that Billy was indeed too old to be riding a tricycle, this doesn't excuse the fact that all three of them sadistically mock him for it, with Sperg taking it a step further by giving Billy a brutal wedgie and then throwing "Trikey" off a cliff while Billy can only watch and beg helplessly, with all three of them gloating about [[EvilFeelsGood how good it felt]] after doing so (Pud'n even calls it "awesome", the little shit). When the haunted tricycle violently retaliates, they all have the nerve to expect sympathy from both Billy and the audience, with Pud'n obnoxiously calling Trikey a "mean old tricycle", conveniently ignoring the fact that they are all [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]] who went out of their way to deserve their fate. It also doesn't help that Trikey, unlike {{Literature/Christine}}, doesn't attack people for simply being close to Billy and only attacked Grim out of self-defense.

** Hoss Delgado has an eyepatch, a robot arm, a mullet and fights Grim who obviously has a skull for a face due to being a skeleton. Come 2015 where a [[MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain a certain game]] features a protagonist with a robot arm, mullet and eyepatch fighting a character named Skull Face. Cue [[http://i.imgur.com/Ywq6R9n.jpg Hoss Delgado is Venom Snake comparisons.]]

** Eris has most certainly earned her spot here, by succesfully manipulating Mandy's greed and megalomania twice. The second time especially, her whole plan depended on everybody reacting with as much ambition as possible. And she was right.

** In the pilot episode, the toy monster Billy plays with has a head that's nigh-identical to that of [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Eelektross]].

** Ecto Cooler -- Honestly, let's face it, how many people (child and adult fans alike) actually knew who Lord Byron was (or even the fact that he actually ''has'' a club foot!)? Seriously, unless you're really into literature--especially if it specializes in British literature, Romanticism-era literature, and/or poetry--you've probably never even heard of Lord Byron.

Seriously, unless you're really into literature--especially if it specializes in it's British literature, Romanticism-era literature, (since Lord Byron was from England), poetry (since Lord Byron was a poet) and/or poetry--you've Romanticism literature (since Lord Byron was a leading figure in the Romantic movement)--or know a lot about British history, you've probably never even heard of Lord Byron.

* CrossesTheLineTwice:
** [[ChristmasEpisode "Billy and Mandy Save Christmas".]] Features such things as a mall being burned to the ground as the MallSanta is mercilessly beaten (with The Grim Reaper implying that this happens all the time and Billy blaming it on the sad state of the economy), [[BadSanta evil vampire Santa]], Santa's evil vampire wife, and [[CrowningMomentOfFunny the local bully being eaten by a pack of flying vampire elves.]] Quite subversive compared to the average Christmas episodes, and even fellow childrens' cartoons that try to subvert the usual sweetness of a Christmas special don't take it that far.
** A lot of the humor can dip into this, it being BlackComedy.

** An in-series example: in the beginning of ''Billy & Mandy's Jacked-Up Halloween'', Irwin's first Halloween costume is Sleeping Beauty, as a lame attempt to get Mandy to kiss him. Fast forward to ''Big Boogey Adventure'', and it's '''Mandy''' who's now the sleeping beauty that needs to be awakened with a kiss. And guess who kisses her?

** Irwin is probably the biggest case. Is he a StalkerWithACrush? Yes. Is he a bit too clingy and needy? Yes. But his misfortune isn't just a case of bad karma; it's pretty much his purpose in the series to be relentlessly beaten, even when there's no call for it. Not only that, but his crush on Mandy wouldn't be such a sad thing if it weren't for the fact that Mandy is ''evil''; instead of trying to be rational first and resulting to extreme measures when necessary, she goes straight to using verbal and physical abuse. Because of this, he goes from being just TheChewToy to being TheWoobie. Heck, [[http://maxwellatoms.tumblr.com/post/145565196337/i-gotta-ask-what-caused-irwin-to-become-so Maxwell Atoms said]] that his role in the show was to be "needlessly punished" and that ''Underfist'' needed an "underdog" for its hero, hence why Irwin is the main protagonist (aside from him being a mummy-vampire, that is).

** Irwin's life is kinda sad, actually. He has a crush on the most evil girl in the world (who hates him), wants to be cool (but fails miserably), and some of the horrible things that happen to him happen for ''seemingly no reason''. Add in the fact that he's usually not as much of a jerk as the other characters, is {{Adorkable}} in his own right, and that his crush on Mandy is [[FridgeBrilliance probably Billy's fault (remember "Get Outta My Head!"?)]], and you've got a pretty solid candidate.
