** 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!) before seeing that episode? Seriously, unless you're really into literature--especially if it's British (since Lord Byron was from England), poetry (since Lord Byron was a poet) and/or 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.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arBrvnyD0zY One AMV]] paired Mandy with [[WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}} Trevor Troublemeyer]] due to both being the {{Token Evil Teammate}}s of their respective series. The video also used Eris and [[WesternAnimation/{{Sidekick}} Mr. Troublemeyer/Master XOX]] to represent them as adults.

* BadassDecay:
** When Grim first appeared, he was an actually competent and talented character, who people actually were intimidated of (apart from Billy who's too stupid and Mandy who fears no one). He still has some badass episodes, but most of the episodes after episode 3 shows him constantly being made a fool out of.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Underfist}}'' reimagines Hoss Delgado as washed up and still hung up on his breakup with Eris, now sporting a beer gut and living with his mom. He gets his ass handed to him countless times throughout the movie.

He gets his ass handed to him countless times throughout the movie. Now he was always childish, ridiculously over-the-top and even a bit loopy, but it was just a bit less pronounced.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: Averted. The video game based on the series is a surprisingly fun beat-em-up style fighter with plenty of characters from the show, all voiced by their actual voice actors, with Music/WeirdAlYankovic as the announcer!

* MoralEventHorizon: Quite a few, though they're offset only by the show's NegativeContinuity (usually):
** Grim and Mandy have had a number of potential moments, usually involving leaving Billy to a CoolAndUnusualPunishment.
** Billy, though a good kid, has tried to kill his "adopted" son just because he's afraid of spiders.
** Irwin has allowed a Pyramid to be built in his honor, regardless of whether or not everybody remains brainwashed.
** Nergal forces a number of people, including the viewer, into transforming into his "[[WasOnceAMan Friends]]" in the second episode he appears in.
** Boogey crossed it in ''Wrath of the Spider Queen.'' During the contest for who would become the future Grim Reaper, Velma was close to winning, but Boogey decided to rig the voting. When Velma finds out, [[spoiler: she thinks Grim tried to cheat]], costing him his only friend.
** [[SadistTeacher Ms. Butterbean]] crosses it in ''Substitute Creature'' when she ignored Sperg bullying Junior because he bribed her with an apple. The drawer filled with apples makes clear that this has happened lots of times. To really [[KickTheDog twist the knife]], she tells Junior that it's okay for Sperg to do it because he was bigger. You don't feel bad when Junior glues her to the ceiling and takes her form.
** Mindy has had her fair share of candidates from attempting to incinerate Mandy for taking her place as cheerleader of the team to beating up Billy with knuckles for being a loser. And let's not even mention Underfist...
** Sperg outdid even his usual abusive self by resorting to cannibalism and eating Pud'n's arms and legs.
