-->''Destiny sucks.''

''Todd and the Book of Pure Evil'' is a Canadian horror/comedy series created by Craig David Wallace, Charles Picco and Anthony Leo. The series is based on a short film of the same name, and is perhaps best described as [[XMeetsY Kevin Smith meets the Evil Dead]]. Appropriately, one of the series' regulars is [[TheViewAskewniverse Jason Mewes]].

Todd is a metalhead and underachiever attending [[Creator/AleisterCrowley Crowley]] High who discovers an ArtifactOfDoom known as the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Book of Pure Evil]]. Soon, he is pulled into a struggle against the forces of evil, which include the creatures spawned by the book, the local guidance counselor and a secret cabal of [[HollywoodSatanism Satanists]]. Todd is joined by his friends: a fellow stoner and amputee named Curtis, a science geek named Hannah and Jenny, the object of Todd's desire.

The series is not one for the squeamish, as it combines copious amounts of {{Gorn}}, ToiletHumor and BlackComedy. It's also a loving tribute to heavy metal music, and numerous references to various metal bands can be found throughout the series.

The second season was the last, judging by the season finale's climax [[spoiler:in which Todd wishes for the Book to go somewhere it will never be found.]] The series will conclude with a crowdfunded movie, ''Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End.'' [[http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/todd-the-book-of-pure-evil-the-end-of-the-end Support it here!]]
----
!!Tropes featured include:

* ActionGirl: Jenny, by Season 2. Notably, she [[spoiler: even beat Todd to death]] in ''Loser Generated Content'' before a magical ResetButton was hit.
* ADateWithRosiePalms
* {{Adorkable}}: Hannah.
** Todd develops shades of this after some character development.
** Atticus when he's not being a psychotic douchebag.
* AdultsAreUseless: That, or they're utterly evil. Jimmy the janitor is something of an exception. He's often helping the main characters, despite usually not actually going on their adventures with them.
** Lampshaded by Curtis in one episode where he comments that the staff at Crowley High don't seem to care about what goes on in the school.
* AdultsDressedAsChildren: Atticus's attempt to blend in at a WildTeenParty in "B.Y.O.B.O.P.E." might be the most halfhearted example ever. The only changes to his usual outfit are jeans with rolled-up cuffs instead of a more formal pair of pants, a leather football jacket over his usual sweater, dress shirt and tie, and [[DoNotCallMePaul insistence that his name is "Scooter"]]. On one hand, nobody buys it, but on the other, they don't kick him out, either.
* [[AllThereInTheScript All There In The Credits]]: In case anyone was wondering, the three metal dudes (left to right, based on how they usually stand in front of the car in the parking lot) are named Brody, Eddie and Rob.
* AManIsAlwaysEager: Averted. Both Todd or Curtis were nervous about the prospect of having sex with their respective girlfriends.
* [[spoiler: AntiAntiChrist: Todd ironically only starts to become a better person after he learns that he's fated to destroy all life.]]
* AlmightyJanitor: Jimmy, who frequently dispenses helpful advice to the main character.
* [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Bi]]: Although he is interested in girls, Curtis seems to have a crush on his best friend, Todd.
-->'''Todd''': What the shit? My finger smells like ass!
-->'''Curtis''': *takes a long sniff of it with a big smile* …That's not the smell of ''your'' ass, dude...
** All but ''confirmed'' by this exchange in 'The Toddyssey'. To be clear of the situation, [[ItMakesSenseInContext Todd is walking away to ride on the back of the runner who will take him back to the past]]:
-->'''Curtis''': I always loved you!
-->'''Todd''': As a friend?
-->'''Curtis''': That too.
** Also, Jimmy, who reads "manhole", a blatant male nude magazine.
** Todd himself even gets a little bit of this due to the few hints that he might reciprocate Atticus' feelings to a certain extent. Nowhere near as much as the other guys though.
* AmbiguouslyGay: "Ambiguous" may be too generous of a word to describe Atticus and his... suggestive relationship with Todd.
* AmbiguousSyntax:
-->'''Jenny''': This is what you get for being a Satanist kidnapper.
-->'''[[spoiler:Atticus]]''': I don't kidnap Satanists!
* AntiAntiChrist: Todd himself. For now.
* ApocalypseCult: The retirement-home satanists who are trying to capture the Book of Pure Evil want to make Todd into the Pure Evil One who will destroy the world.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Book of Pure Evil. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Well, what did you expect?]]
* ArtificialLimbs: Hannah builds one for Curtis at the end of Season 1.
* AskAStupidQuestion, GetAStupidAnswer: In what could count as an OutOfCharacterMoment for [[TallDarkAndSnarky Jenny]]:
-->'''Jenny''': Hey guys, you know that cheerleader? [[AskAStupidQuestion The thin, beautiful one?]]
-->'''Todd''': [[GetAStupidAnswer As opposed to all the fat, ugly cheerleaders?]]
* AssholeVictim: At least some of the people who use the Book of Pure Evil probably deserve what's coming to them.
** In the second episode, the science teacher who belittles Hannah and is sleeping with two of his students.
** The basketball coach who threatened to disown his own son for his shoddy performance.
** The old Satanists, including Atticus' father.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Todd's ADHD is actually rather realistic, but some of the adults hit by the smoke in "Invasion of the Stupid Snatchers" seem to turn into this rather than becoming a [[TheDitz ditz]] or TooDumbToLive.
-->'''Atticus''': (''To himself'') Focus, focus! You have the Book! Ultimate power is in your hands! All you have to... (''Somebody walks past the camera'') Hey, is that poutine? (''Drops the book and follows'')
* BadFuture: "The Toddyssey" covers one where [[spoiler:Hannah has become evil and rules the school alongside Atticus.]]
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan: Hannah tries to seduce Todd this way, but [[SubvertedTrope it doesn't actually work]].
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The series basically combines this with a MonsterOfTheWeek premise.
* BettyAndVeronica: Initially Hannah serves as the Betty to Jenny's Veronica, but Hannah eventually moves on to Curtis and Jenny becomes Todd's sole love interest. Well, apart from [[GayOption Atticus]].
** In season two, Jenny becomes the Betty to Nikki Kane's Veronica.
* BigBad: The cult leader [[spoiler: Atticus Murphy Sr.]] in season one.[[spoiler: The Three Metal Dudes]] in season two.
** BigBadWannabe: Atticus attempts to serve as the BigBad throughout season 2, but proves to be so hopelessly incompetent that he spends more time helping the gang then he does fighting them.
* BiggerBad: The Pure Evil One, master of The Book Of Pure Evil and harbinger of the apocalypse. [[spoiler: AKA Todd.]]
* BigNo: Uttered by Hannah after Todd becomes an idiot in "Invasion of the Stupid Snatchers."
** And Todd, when he thinks Jenny was eaten by a beast. She walks into the hall in the middle of the scream.
* BlackComedy: Although the excessive {{Gorn}} and [[SadistShow sadism]] make it hard to tell if it really takes its issues seriously at all.
* BlackComedyRape: Wolf rape, to be specific.
* TheBladeAlwaysLandsPointyEndIn: And beheads one of the zombies in "Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best." It gets luckier when you consider Hannah was actually trying to just throw the hatchet to Todd.
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:Jenny's father is revealed to be a total douchebag obsessed with the Book of Pure Evil. He later uses the book to become a skin-stealing shapeshifter.]]
** [[spoiler: Todd also becomes one to Curtis at the end of season 2, after he accidentally kills Hannah.]]
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: In the second season finale, Hannah [[spoiler: died in Curtis' arms]] when [[spoiler: Todd expelled the Book of Pure Evil from the school]]. In essence, [[spoiler: saving the world ended Todd's friendship with Curtis]].
* BuryYourGays: Inverted in the fourth episode, since the wish made by the VictimOfTheWeek, who wanted the straight guys in school to understand what he was going through, ended up switching the sexualities of every guy in Crowley High... making him the only straight male when an angry mob of students killed him.
* ButtMonkey: Atticus, Atticus, ATTICUS! He's guaranteed to get screwed over at least once in every single scene he's in.
** To a lesser extent, Curtis, who regularly finds his life destroyed by his "best friend" Todd.
* CanisLatinicus: The magic words that appear in the book. Lampshaded in the season 2 finale where (on the page but not read aloud) the inaction ends with "Makum Upus".
* CatapultNightmare: Todd experiences this in the first season finale, when he imagines slaughtering his friends.
* CatGirl: Hannah gets turned into one during ''Fisting Fantasy.'' Well, except for the [[GagPenis giant cock]].
* CatchPhrase:
-->'''Atticus''': ...Which is what I am.
-->'''Stoner #2''': Loser! (''With Todd [[spoiler:and later, Atticus]] as the typical PhraseCatcher'')
* CerebusSyndrome: Parodied throughout season 2, particularly in the BadFuture episode, while still playing it straight.
* CharacterDevelopment: Todd grows from a useless stoner who only wants the book to get laid, to a legitimate hero who wants to save the world [[spoiler: from himself]] from the end of season one throughout season two.
** Atticus slowly goes from being TheMole to legitimately liking the gang across season one, to the point where [[spoiler: he betrays the cult led by his father during the finally]]. Sadly, [[spoiler: After the gang learns that he was TheMole,]] he gets kicked out of the group and all the previously mentioned character development vanishes.
** Not quite, [[spoiler: season two shows that Atticus desperately wants to rejoin the gang but hides it behind his CardCarryingVillain persona.]]
* ChubbyChaser: Jimmy the janitor. "When I want to grease my piece, I go obese."
* ClusterFBomb: "Fuck you, you cock-sucker whore-porking piece of shit fucker!"
* CovertPervert: Hannah gets dreamy-eyed when watching Todd and Curtis kiss in ''Gay Day''. Later, when Curtis expresses hesitation over having sex before Hannah is ready, she quickly answers "I'm ready" and pulls him on top of her.
* CrapsackWorld: TeensAreMonsters, AdultsAreUseless and there's an ArtifactOfDoom on the loose that doesn't seem to be stoppable.
* CreepyMonotone: Curtis and Hannah develop this while hypnotized by one episode's villain.
** Not so creepy as PlayedForLaughs, however.
* CrossPlayer: Curtis's avatar in an MMO called ''Fisting Fantasy'' (which only appears in the episode of the same name) is a busty witch. He ends up [[{{Hermaphrodite}} merging with her]] when the gang gets transported into the game (or a world similar to it) by the Book.
* CurseCutShort: Only for CountryMatters on one occasion, made obvious because the character in question [[RhymesOnADime spoke in rhyme]].
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Just before the guitar duel in the series premiere:
-->'''Stuart''': I'm going to slay you, Todd.
-->'''Todd''': I'm going to make you bleed out of your ass.
** And because [[DemonicPossession he's possessed by the Book,]] Todd actually makes it happen.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Season 2 makes fun of this trope with it's frequent declarations of being it, but still plays it straight none the less.
* DeadpanSnarker: Jenny, from time to time. Or Todd, when Jenny isn't snarking.
** Hanna got in on it during the opening of "How to Make a Homonculus", after her science teacher called a pair of [[AlphaBitch Alpha Bitches]] "his two best students":
-->'''Hanna:''' I wasn't aware you gave extra credit for handjobs.
* DemonicPossession: Has occurred twice in the series thus far, both in the series premiere (where Todd is possessed by the Book of Pure Evil) and in an episode where a basketball player is taken over by the ghost of a former alum.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Hannah in "Monster Fat," after she and [[TemporaryBulkChange a blimped-up Jenny]] question the [[FormerlyFat Formerly]] FatGirl that used the Book.
-->'''Hannah''': This could be a huge problem. ({{beat}}) [[ThatCameOutWrong I mean]]... a huge ''problem'', not a ''huge'' problem. ({{beat}}) Like, it could be like a massive problem.
-->'''Jenny''': You done?
-->'''Hannah''': Like a massive problem, not a massive person.
-->(''Jenny starts walking away'')
-->'''Hannah''': Which you're not! A problem, I mean, or a person— oh, I- uh, of course you're a person!
* DisabilityImmunity: Todd's ADHD renders him immune to one villain's mind-control powers.
* DisabilitySuperpower: While not a superpower per se, Curtis puts his prosthetic arm to good use.
* DistressedDamsel: Jenny frequently played this role in Season 1, but develops into an ActionGirl in Season 2.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The chemistry teacher gets impaled through his groin by a baking soda volcano. It, uh, erupts.
** When a student is "impregnated" by the Book of Pure Evil, she moans rather suggestively before falling off her swing.
** A girl named Gina (who insists on pronouncing it like the end of "vagina") is turned into Mother Nature- a giant, sentient tree- and tries to drag Hannah into her.
-->'''Gina''': Come back to Mother, Hannah! COME BACK INSIDE MOTHER!!
* DoubleEntendre: Practically every other word out of Atticus' mouth.
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: ''Sort of''. While Todd wasn't really willing to have sex with Nikki, and she does somewhat force it on him, but she's ''also'' portrayed as evil. In addition to this, the show plays ''so many'' other things for laughs, that's its hard to say if this is really a double standard, or just the show's usual BlackComedy. It's safe to probably go with the latter.
* [[spoiler: DownerEnding: The season 2 finale has Todd banish the book to "somewhere faraway", but kills Hannah and loses Curtis' friendship in the process. The Metal Dudes are also still around and will know doubt find the book sooner or later which has Atticus sealed inside of it. All in all, Todd got kind of screwed.]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: Wanda Winterbanks is this misplaced in a cheerleader's body.
* DumbIsGood: Averted in one episode, where the villain of the week is borderline retarded and intent on making everyone dumber than him.
* EasyEvangelism: It proves laughably easy for Atticus to convert the students of Crowley High to Satanism. Notably, the illustrated pamphlet his minions distribute to their fellow students resembles the infamous Creator/JackChick tracts.
* EmptyPilesOfClothing: The first clue to what happened in "Simply the Beast."
* EroticEating: PlayedForLaughs in a NightmareSequence Todd has in "Monster Fat." [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes He's freaked out by]] [[TemporaryBulkChange an insanely-fattened Jenny]] coming onto him, especially when she seems to be moving in for a blowjob... only to chomp down on an unpeeled banana standing up on top of his crotch. It's easy to blink and miss, [[CatapultNightmare since he wakes up right then and there]].
* EverybodyMustGetStoned: One student tries to use the book to become the smartest kid in school. He ends up with the ability to emit smoke that turns people into morons and ends up infecting the entire school (except Hannah). Todd and Curtis initially assume that everyone is high.
* EveryoneIsBi: So far, the entire cast's sexually has shown to vary from [[AmbiguouslyGay Ambiguously Bi]], to AnythingThatMoves.
* EvilMentor: [[spoiler:The three metal dudes who perpetually hang around outside the school. At first they appear to be helping Todd, but their actual goal is to bring about the apocalypse.]]
* EvilOldFolks: [[spoiler: Virtually all of the residents of the Crowley Heights retirement home.]]
** In the second season premiere, the Book of Pure Evil turns the retirement home residents into cannibal zombies.
* ExpositionFairy: "Fisting Fantasy" gives the gang one: a Muppet-like critter named "Mischievio," who quickly degrades into TheLoad [[spoiler:and is actually the guy who used the Book to create the video game world.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: Atticus]] turned to the darkside after [[spoiler: dispatching his father]] in the end of Season 1 and [[spoiler: begins earnestly working against the gang]]
* FakeOutMakeOut: Hannah and Curtis invoke this in one episode to avoid detection by Atticus, but Hannah feels a real spark from it and stops trying to attract Todd.
* FalseUtopia: A weird example, as the town was founded to serve as a Utopia for satanists. However, as only the elderly are still satanists, this concept eventually collapsed; and it went from being a secluded village to a regular town.
* FateWorseThanDeath: The Book, being [[JackassGenie The Book]], sometimes does this to its victims. For example, [[spoiler: Jimmy used it to lock the metal dudes out of the school, so it locked him in.]] Granted, he's more or less made the best of it, but still...
* FiveManBand: During the various instances when Atticus is part of the gang, they form one as followed:
** TheHero: Todd
** TheLancer/ TheChick: Switches between Jenny and Atticus. When Atticus isn't around, Jenny easily fulfills both roles.
** TheBigGuy: Curtis
** TheSmartGuy: Hannah
** TheSixthRanger/ SixthRangerTraitor: Atticus
* FlyingBooks: The titular Book of Pure Evil at the end of almost every episode.
* FreakyFridayFlip:
* FusionDance: [[spoiler: The three metal dudes can fuse and create an apparently new person complete with her own personality ("Never know what she saw in you").]]
* GenderEqualEnsemble: The gang is two guys and two girls. Atticus slips in and out of the group and Jimmy occasionally also pitches in, leaning it slightly towards favoring males.
* GenreSavvy: Mainly Jimmy, but most of the characters get a moment or two, even Todd.
--> '''Jimmy (walks in to find a student holding the open Book of Pure Evil):''' "… Did you already read the freaky words?"
--> '''Student:''' "Kinda…"
--> '''Jimmy:''' "Ok. Can you pass me my blood mop? I'm gonna need it later"
** In one episode a teacher, openly states that when he sees Todd, Curtis, Hannah and Jenny get together. He knows it's time to hide in the teachers lounge.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: Todd slaps Curtis and says this to him, word for word, to stop him from freaking out when there's no weed in the entire town.
* GirlOnGirlIsHot: One episode revolved around Jenny hooking up with an aggressive lesbian classmate.
** Todd also imagines Jenny getting felt up by her hot (and undead) friend.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: [[spoiler: Todd has these when he becomes the Pure Evil One.]]
* GonnaNeedMoreX: In "Invasion of the Stupid Snatchers," when Hannah vacuums up the smoke Jenny inhaled only for her to be reinfected.
-->'''Hannah''': I'm gonna need a bigger vacuum.
* {{Gorn}}: Very common. The teens who use the Book often meet incredibly grisly ends.
* GrandTheftMe: Charlotte, who first used the book in "The Phantom of Crowley High," returns in "2 Girls, 1 Tongue" and switches places with Hannah. Everyone other than the two have been brainwashed to think it's always been this way, essentially bringing Charlotte closer to Curtis while framing Hannah as the Phantom.
* GreenEyedEpiphany: Jenny, once Todd hooks up with [[TheVamp Nikki Kane]].
* HarmfulToMinors: Todd once watched a home-made sex tape starring Curtis' grossly obese parents. The experience scarred him for life, giving him a crippling fear of fat people. Curtis, on the other hand, [[PassThePopcorn seemed to enjoy it]].
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Curtis seems to have one of these. He mentions in one episode that his parents are constantly trying to get rid of him. In another episode, when his friend Hannah questions how he learned to pick locks, he mentions that his parents lock him out of the house a lot.
** [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking His parents also didn't bother to give him a middle name.]]
** Anytime Atticus thinks about his childhood, we flash back to an memory of him cowering from a wolf.
* HulkingOut: A cheerleader who just wanted to be stronger to keep her position on the team.
* HypocriticalHumor: When arguing against [[spoiler:Jenny's father]] joining the team, Curtis comments that they don't want a cripple in the club.
--> Another in the Monster Fat Episode, where the magically slimmed down Emily mocks Jenny for her TemporaryBulkChange. She is shown minutes later eating a massive plate of fatty food.
* ICallHerVera: Todd names his sword "Sanddragon".
* IgnoredAesop: At the end of "Simply the Beast":
-->'''Hannah''': I think we learned a valuable lesson about teamwork: Not listening—
-->'''Todd''': [[IResembleThatRemark That my leadership clinched our victory!]] Thank you, Hannah!
-->'''Hannah''': That's not what I was going to say...
-->'''Jenny''': But I was the one [[EnemyCivilWar who talked them into killing each other.]]
-->'''Todd''': Yeah, because I told you to do it.
-->'''Jenny''': But it was Jimmy's idea.
-->'''Todd''': Yeah, but I implemented it.
-->'''Jenny''': But I was undercover.
-->'''Todd''': Yeah, but we were ''also'' undercover...
-->(''{{Beat}}'')
-->'''Curtis''': We killed that pep rally!
-->'''All four''': YEAH! (''Group high-five'')
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: A lonely girl seeking friendship uses the Book of Pure Evil and gains the ability to instantly befriend anyone through touch.
* ImagineSpot: Used frequently.
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: An incredibly dumb student who used the book to turn everyone into idiots asks Hannah if being smart has made her any happier.
* JackassGenie: The Book itself. Just as an example, a bullied gay kid wished that the straight guys in Crowley High understood what he was going through, and the book flipped the sexualities of ''every'' boy in the school... including the one that made the wish, who was left as a straight male minority.
** At the end of "B.Y.O.B.O.P.E.," the Book makes an exception and doesn't even try to warp a blind kid's wish to be able to see... because the first thing he could see, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor he'd want to unsee]]. It even aided him by adding a Braille transcription of the Latin spell he needed to cast.
* JerkAss: The main character, Todd. All the cast demonstrate shades of this from time to time, however.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Todd becomes one of these, verging one NiceGuy across season two. He's still a dick, but his heart's in the right place at least.
* KnightOfCerebus: Len Bergman, the Chess Club president/Prophet of the Pure Evil One in the second to last episode of season one is possibly the first villain played completely seriously, and is extremely creepy to top it all off. He's also used as an avatar for the book, which makes him considerably more important than the other MonsterOfTheWeeks.
** [[spoiler: Once the Three Metal Dudes get serious, they become this.]]
** [[spoiler: The Pure Evil One is also never used for humor when he's onscreen.]]
* KnowWhenToFoldem: [[spoiler: A very subtle example. The town was founded by Satanists to practice their beliefs in peace and await the arrival of the pure evil one. However, considering that only the older generation (retirement age) are still satanists, the vast majority of the cultists eventually realized: he wasn't coming, gave up waiting, and abandoned the lifestyle.]]
* LargeHam: While Atticus is pretty much always hammy, once Todd goes into the future in 'The Toddyssey', the whole show becomes a WorldOfHam. Special mention goes to Melanie Leishman (Hannah) in that episode, as she plays up every [[EvilIsHammy Villainess]] stereotype you can think of, and clearly relishes each moment of it.
* LanguageOfMagic: The Book of Pure Evil provides a [[AltumVidetur Latin translation]] (although some [[CanisLatinicus don't seem to be grammatically correct]]) of what the person using it wants, and actives the wish once this is read out loud.
* LimitedWardrobe: The three metal dudes that hang out in the parking lot don't even swap out their band shirts. [[spoiler:Possibly justified because [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld they're not normal people]], but it should probably make them stand out more than it does.]]
* MadeOfPlasticine: As part of the generally gory tone of the series.
* MauveShirt: Wanda Winterbanks, the head cheerleader, and Ms. Dempsey, the gym teacher. Notably, they're the only two other than Atticus and the gang that are still alive in the BadFuture in "The Toddyssey," and it wasn't until the series finale that Wanda got her hands on the Book... only for Atticus to tase her and snatch it up.
* MetafictionalDevice: ''Weaponized'' by the two-person AV Club in "Loser Generated Content." This included warping a victim around the school using editing and later slicing him clean in half with a split-screen.
* MusicalEpisode: ''The Phantom of Crowley High.''
** ''2 Girls 1 Tongue'' is a sequel of sorts to the above and is also a musical predictably.
* MyEyesAreUpHere: ''[[HoYay Curtis]]'' has to say this to Todd in "Fisting Fantasy," when the gang gets transported into an MMO and Curtis becomes [[CrossPlayer his female avatar]].
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The show makes no effort to hide that the book is an ArtifactOfDoom. Snarkily lampshaded by Jenny in "Monster Fat."
* NeckSnap: Occurs when a horny clone is rejected by her creator.
* NightmareFetishist: Curtis. Severed tongue. Make-out session. Ewwwww.
* NoOntologicalInertia: A spell that turned all the male students gay ends with the death of the student who cast it. Similarly, when the characters are transported into a fantasy RPG, they are returned to the real world by defeating the student who brought them there.
** OntologicalInertia: A lot of other cases such as "Monster Fat" and "Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best" aren't stopped when the students who made the wishes die. It seems to depend on the nature of the wish, with the ones that create a physical monster of some kind most likely to have OntologicalInertia.
* AllPeriodsArePMS: In "Simply the Beast," where Todd speculates that an [[EmptyPilesOfClothing empty cheerleader uniform]] appeared with no traces of blood because the girl it belonged to wished to stop her period from occurring and had all her blood drained.
* NobodyPoops: [[DiscretionShot Indiscreetly]] averted as of "See You Later, Masturbator." When Atticus's back is turned, the kid that made himself invisible using the Book craps on his desk, with the Gang noticeably grossed out as they see it happen.
* NoodleIncident: "The Incident" from "The Toddyssey." All we know for sure is it's not [[spoiler: the threesome Curtis, Hannah, and Jenny had.]]
** Atticus has a few that the show plays with. Each leads into an ImagineSpot, but it's [[RunningGag always the same memory]] of him as a teenager, being intimidated by a snarling wolf in a forest. Doesn't matter what he said about it before the ImagineSpot.
* NotSoDifferent: Said to Todd by [[ItMakesSenseInContext a giant talking penis]].
* NothingIsScarier: Type 1 and Type 2 are both used in "Invasion of the Stupid Snatchers," with some faint disembodied voices as the only sounds.
* OccamsRazor: Todd and Curtis first think a cheerleader was eaten alive by something they name "the Beast," leaving [[EmptyPilesOfClothing just her cheerleading outfit]]. When Jenny points out there was no blood left at the scene, Todd decides the cheerleader wished for [[AllPeriodsArePMS no more periods]] and suffered total blood loss... and ''then'' got eaten by this creature called "the Beast," leaving just her cheerleading outfit. That implies two separate wishes, when the cheerleader actually just wished to be stronger to stay on the team and ended up [[HulkingOut becoming "the Beast" itself]].
* OffWithHisHead: In "Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best," although with a hatchet instead of a sword.
** And in the Season 1 finale, [[spoiler:Atticus does this to his own father]].
* OffscreenTeleportation: When Atticus is pursued by a man-sized monster baby spawned by the Book. Although the Big Bad Baby is only capable of shambling slowly, it somehow manages to get in front of Atticus as he sprints down a school corridor.
* OmniDisciplinaryScientist: Well, multidisciplinary science geek, anyway.
* OnlySaneMan: Jenny and Hannah trade off with this position, though Hannah has it slightly more frequently. Atticus tends to play this role when he's not interacting with the gang.
** When Jenny and Hannah aren't present, Todd will serve as this.
** [[spoiler: No longer the case for Atticus by the end of season two, where SanitySlippage has made him possibly the craziest person on the show.]]
* OurHomunculiAreDifferent: Hannah creates one in the second episode as a ScienceFair project. It kills the science teacher.
* OverlyLongName: A screenname, to be exact: "Triple-X-Assassin-23-X-X-X," as it's pronounced.
* PeopleJars: [[spoiler:In the last minute of the second season finale, a new Hannah walks out of one in the basement of the retirement home, after the original Hannah had been killed.]]
* PlaceboEffect: One of the metal dudes in front of the school ends up smoking oregano when the whole town is out of weed.
-->'''Todd''': Why [[PhraseCatcher am I the loser]] if you're the one smoking oregano?
* PlantPerson: A GranolaGirl uses the book to turn the school into a prehistoric jungle and is turned into a living tree.
* PoliceAreUseless: Mentioned in the second season premiere.
** [[spoiler: Given the town was founded, and run, by Satanists it's likely they were ether paid off, or explicitly told not to interfere.]]
* ThePowerOfLove: At least part of the reason Todd [[spoiler: rejects the power of the Book]].
* ProtagonistCentredMorality: Most of the main characters have used the book; they're among the only ones who haven't been karmically punished for this with a horrible death.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: "STOP! [[RunningGag MAKING! BABEHS!]]"
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: [[spoiler: The three metal dudes.]]
* Retcon: [[spoiler: The story changes dramatically over the course of the series, partially because the concept of the "pure evil one" hadn't been written into it yet. Todd is the first shown wielder of the book, but it doesn't trigger the apocalypse as the second season predicted it would. Furthermore the subplot with Hannah and her connection to the book, was not present in the first season.]]
* RefusalOfTheCall: Todd only agrees to help locate the Book of Pure Evil in order to score with his love interest. In subsequent episodes, he exhibits little interest in actually finding it.
* RhymesOnADime: The ExpositionFairy Mischievio in "Fisting Fantasy," [[spoiler:which is just a front. He's actually the guy who used the Book in the episode.]]
* RunningGag: If you don't control German herpes, German herpes will control you.
** "Invasion of the Stupid Snatchers":
-->You wanna make a babeh?
** '''Metal Dude #2''': Stop being such a loser, loser!
** "Checkmate":
-->'''Hannah''': We're so wasted.
** "Daddy Tissues":
-->'''Curtis''': Hey, dude, that's my girlfriend! Not cool!
** "2 Girls, 1 Tongue," where [[GrandTheftMe Charlotte wishes to switch places with Hannah]] (and everyone else thinks she's always been part of the gang):
-->'''Charlotte''': Kill her with no mercy!
-->'''Jenny''': Ooh, that's a bit extreme...
** Atticus's ImagineSpot of himself as a teenager being menaced by a snarling wolf. The first use was when Atticus referred to [[BestialityIsDepraved his first sexual experience]], but the changing context later on turns this into a stand-in for any NoodleIncident.
** Any person with issues will [[GirlyRun run away]] [[InelegantBlubbering crying out]]: "Nobody understands me!!"
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud: Atticus, when telling the Satanic Society about the Book's appearance in the series premiere.
-->'''Atticus''': I can't believe the Book actually exists. It was totally like... POW! And then I was like... WHOA! And then the Book totally flew away, like... WHRR, WHRR, WHRR! (''Motions with arms to show the Book ascending'')
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Todd and Curtis during "Rock 'n Roll Zombies Know Best."
* ScrewDestiny: [[spoiler: Todd's new goal at the end of season one is to prevent himself from fulfilling his destiny of destroying humanity.]]
* ScrewYourself: One student uses the book to produce a clone for this reason. It ends up going badly.
* SelfMadeOrphan: [[spoiler: Atticus becomes this in the first season finale.]]
* SenselessSacrifice: The girl who made the wish in "Monster Fat" (see NoOntologicalInertia).
* ShamingTheMob: Attempted during "Gay Day," when the student who used the book to turn every male student gay (except himself) makes a plea for tolerance to his fellow students. [[SubvertedTrope They tear him to pieces]].
-->'''Curtis''': [[DidntSeeThatComing I did NOT see that coming.]]
-->'''Todd''': [[TeensAreMonsters I did.]]
** Attempted again when a bully is mocked for his small penis and asks the crowd [[HypocriticalHumor to show him the respect that he never showed them]]. They just keep laughing at him.
* ShirtlessScene: During one movement of the rock opera that is the 10th episode of the second season, Todd rips of his shirt and dances on a picnic table.
* ShoutOut: "[[FinalFantasy Fisting Fantasy]]," although it seems to share some aspects with [=MMOs=] like ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' as well. But even within the episode, there's a subtler ShoutOut to another game:
-->'''Curtis''': Wait a minute. Jenny, you play ''[[VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution Boogie Woogie Uprising]]'', don't you?
-->'''Jenny''': No comment.
** And even subtler than that... The game announcer declaring "[[WizardNeedsFoodBadly Purple Curtis needs food badly]]" during the end credits.
* SpaceWhaleAesop: ''All'' of them. Lampshaded in "Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best":
-->'''Marcy''': Jenny, I'm really sorry about all this.
-->'''Jenny''': Hey, you're not the only kid who doesn't get along with their parents. I mean, how could you have known it'd lead to cannibalism and murder?
* StockScream: The Wilhelm Scream appears OnceAnEpisode.
* StrawFeminist: Gina in "Jungle Fever" isn't just a GranolaGirl, she's also this. Hannah remarks that she spells "women" as "womyn," just "to keep the men out of it."
* StuffedIntoALocker: Todd does this to Jenny in Episode 1. He wanted to keep the Book's power to win the Battle of the Bands, but didn't want to [[DemonicPossession give into its urges to kill Jenny]], so [[TakeAThirdOption this ended up as a good compromise]]. Luckily, Curtis ends up finding her and getting her out before Possessed!Todd ends up killing the entire school.
* TakeAThirdOption: In the series finale. [[spoiler: Todd accepts that he is the destined master of the Book of Pure Evil. He then uses his mastery of the Book to order it to go somewhere it will never be found.]]
* SurrogateSoliloquy: Atticus converses with [[spoiler: his dead father's severed head.]]
* TakingTheBullet: Well, it was a poison dart, and Curtis actually wanted to use his prosthetic arm to block it, but it still counts.
* TakenForGranite: The Monster Penis can turn people to stone by looking at them. (It makes people hard — get it?)
* TeensAreMonsters: They've even ''killed'' their own classmates on more than one occasion.
* TemporaryBulkChange: A FatGirl wishes herself thin in "Monster Fat," but the mutated fat causes anyone it comes into contact with to balloon up.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: [[spoiler: Todd's destiny as the Pure Evil One is to bring about the apocalypse.]]
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: In the Battle of the Bands in the first episode, when Atticus calls the first act "Posey Fresh."
-->'''Audience Member''': "Posse Fresh," bitch!
-->(''Audience snickers'')
-->'''Atticus''': Posse Fresh. Whatever... bitch.
* ToiletHumor: So much of this. One episode literally features an invisible pervert shitting on Atticus' desk.
* TomeOfEldritchLore: The Book of Pure Evil mostly functions as this, but can change its shape. It's become a guitar, a baby blanket, a basketball and shoelaces.
* TownWithADarkSecret: Crowley Heights was [[spoiler: founded by [[HollywoodSatanism Satanists]] to escape persecution for their beliefs (and carry out the Dark Lord's bidding).]]
* TooDumbToLive: Most of the students at Crowley High. Seriously, with all the deaths that occur in the school, does no one ever question the wisdom of casting a spell from a flesh-covered tome that mysteriously appears amidst your belongings?
** The book only ever appears to those who are at their [[DespairEventHorizon lowest point]]. It can sense those who are desperate enough to use it.
*** Except for B.Y.O.B.O.P.E, where it is used by 3 students in succession for petty things. But to be fair, everyone was drunk and the party was noted by Jenny to be a perfect place for the Book to thrive.
* {{Twincest}}: The GirlOnGirlIsHot episode focused on a pair of incestuous identical twin sisters. When one sister chases after Jenny, the other sister ends up using the Book of Pure Evil to produce a clone as a [[ScrewYourself replacement.]]
* UngratefulBastard: Jenny towards Todd whenever he rescues her, although justified in that he's a JerkAss
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Between Todd and Jenny.
* TheVamp: Nikki Kane, who sleeps with Todd so [[spoiler:he may fulfill his destiny as the Pure Evil One.]]
* VoiceOfTheLegion / EvilSoundsDeep: Todd when he's possessed in the series premiere.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Projectile vomiting during "Big Bad Baby."
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Not including Atticus, the four main cast members are high school students.
* WeakWilled: Curtis, when Atticus attempts to hypnotize him.
* WelcomeToCorneria: When Crowley High gets trapped inside a video game, most of the characters outside the gang— including Jimmy, who becomes a blacksmith NPC— fall victim to this.
-->'''Todd''': Hey, Jimmy!
-->'''Jimmy''': Hey, gang! What can I get you from the Secret Chamber of Stuff?
-->'''Hannah''': Doesn't he recognize us?
-->'''Todd''': Hey, Jimmy...
-->'''Jimmy''': Hey, gang! What can I get you from the Secret Chamber of Stuff?

** He also ends up repeating "[[ItMakesSenseInContext Titty-Wizard]] just spent all your gold, dude" several times when Todd tries to make another purchase at the shop.
* WhamEpisode: Arguably, the first season finale, in which [[spoiler: the three stoners reveal Todd's true destiny as the Pure Evil One, Jenny finds her father, Hannah and Curtis finally kiss and Atticus recovers the Book of Pure Evil and then usurps his father as the leader of the Satanists.]]
** The second season finale is even, uh, whammier. [[spoiler: Atticus becomes trapped inside the book during his showdown with Todd, who in turn rejects the Book of Pure Evil. As a result, Hannah dies because of her secret connection to the book.]]
* WhamLine: "Gee … I wonder what happens next?"
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be Fat People?]]: Todd, scarred as a kid by a [[HarmfulToMinors sex tape made by Curtis's obese parents.]]
* WildTeenParty: In "B.Y.O.B.O.P.E." at a blind kid's house... and [[HandsOffParenting even the mom gets in on the fun without him knowing]]. Loud music, binge drinking, teens boning each other in the guest room and the Book of Pure Evil [[SerialEscalation breaking records]] for how many wishes it grants and how many lives it ruins/ends.
* WizardNeedsFoodBadly: Referenced in the episode "Fisting Fantasy."
--> "Purple Curtis needs food badly!"
* WreckedWeapon:
** [[spoiler: Sanddragon gets broken in half by Atticus after his transformation into a goat-man.]]
** The Toddyssey features Sanddragon breaking off in [[spoiler:Hannah]]'s head and [[spoiler:Atticus]]' chest, making this a minor running gag.
* YourHeadASplode: What happens to a student who tries to use mind control on Todd, because of his [[DisabilityImmunity ADHD]].
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: Usually whoever uses the Book of Pure Evil ends up with a dose of karma near the end of the episode. In "The Phantom of Crowley High," Charlotte wishes for an angelic voice to score the lead in the musical and then gets her tongue sliced off in only 4˝ minutes. She goes on to spend the rest of the episode trying to eliminate the competition, and even [[BungledSuicide fails to die]] by the end of the episode.
** She finally gets her [[LaserGuidedKarma comeuppance]] in Season 2 during the second MusicalEpisode "2 Girls 1 Tongue."
