----
!!''Casper's Scare School'' provides the following tropes
* AcademyOfAdventure
* AllCGICartoon
* AllGhoulsSchool: the titular scare school
* AnimeHair
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: Alder and Dash take this very literally. They once punished Casper for giving a gift to one of the teachers, not because it could be considered a bribe, but because it was a nice thing to do.
* BigFancyHouse: The Ghostly Trio's manor could qualify, in spite of it's creepiness.
* BlindAndTheBeast: In season 2 there's a recurring near-sighted old lady who sees Casper and friends as normal human kids.
* BlindfoldedVision: Cappy. In fact, when he has his blindness taken away he loses all sense of direction.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Played straight with Norman [the skater], but averted with Jimmy
* BoardingSchool
* BumblingDad: Jimmy's dad.
* ContinuityReboot
* CoversAlwaysLie: The cover of issue 2 of the spin-off comic shows Jimmy in Scare School, but this does not happen in the story itself.
* DeadpanSnarker: Mantha
* {{Expy}}: Jimmy is similar to Chris from ''Casper: A Spirited Beginning''. Both are "experts" in the supernatural.
* EnemyMine: In the "Power Outage" 4-part special, the students and staff of Scare School team up with Mr. Bradley, a Creature Catcher, to stop Razznik.
* ExtranormalInstitute
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Casper
** TheLancer: Ra
** TheSmartGuy: Mantha
** TheBigGuy: Wolfie
** TheChick (Team Fleshie): Jimmy\\\
The Teachers:
** TheLeader: Dash.
** TheLancer: Alder.
** TheSmartGuy: Professor Burns.
** TheBigGuy: Frankengymteacher.
** TheHeart: Hedy Hopper.
* AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted: Ra in "Rich Kid Ra", however he was already rich to begin with until an archaeologist raided his family's tomb.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: in the comic, Ra, Mantha and Wolfie go trick or treating in their regular outfits. Casper however averts the trope since he dresses up in a pirate costume, both since he doesn't want to dress like a BedSheetGhost and because he promised Cappy to wear this costume in exchance for a ride to Deedstown.
* HumanityEnsues: In one episode, Wolfie was turned into a "fleshie", or human.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: In "Dream Team" the ghost invading Jimmy's dad's dreams looks a lot like Casper, [[ColorCodedCharacters except he's red]]. Oddly, there seems to be no reason for the resemblance, as it never becomes plot-relevant.
* InstantFanClub: Ra in "The Ra-Minator", "Rich Kid Ra", and "Wiz Kid Ra".
* InterspeciesFriendship: Casper, Ra, Mantha, Jimmy and Wolfie are all good friends, despite all being different creatures.
* JerkAss: Alder and Dash; Thatch to a lesser extent
* KidsAreCruel
* LawfulStupid: Alder and Dash
* LighterAndSofter: The Ghostly Trio, so much that they actually care about Casper. Of course they still love to scare humans.
* LiteralMetaphor: Alder and Dash's replacement from "Master Blister" literally has eyes in the back of his head.
* {{Lovable Alpha Bitch}}es: Mickey and Monaco
* MissingMom: Jimmy's mom, Rebecca, only made a few appearances.
* MistakenForMurderer: [[spoiler:The sea monster]].
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Kibosh's manservant Razznik betrayed him after enduring two centuries of Kibosh treating him almost like an slave.
* MonsterMash
* {{Muggles}}
* MythologyGag: Deedstown shares the same name as the town from ''Casper: A Spirited Beginning''.
* NegativeContinuity: Season 2 overall is infamous for it's number of inconsitencies with season 1, a few examples:
** In the season 2 episode "Cappy's Mail Order Eyes" Cappy gets new eyes and manages to make his way to Deedstown, despite the 4-part special from season 1 establishing that he loses all sense of direction when he's not blind.
** In the season 1 episode "Revenge of the Creature Catcher", Jimmy is able to travel from the manor of Casper's uncles to Scare School, proving that he knows how to operate the clock and open the dimension tube. But in the season 2 episode "The Manor Has Disappeared", he somehow does not know this and ends up shrinking the manor when trying to open the tube.
** In the 4-part special, Mr. Bradley finds out Jimmy is friends with Casper and co. But in later episodes, he does not seem to know this.
** In the episode "Our Boy Wolfie", Wolfie does not know who Jimmy is, despite the fact that this episode is clearly set after "Ghost Bust a Move" (as Graham is already a creature catcher by now) in which Wolfie and Jimmy met.
* NiceGuy: Casper
** Maybe too nice for his own good.
* NurseWithGoodIntentions: The school nurse seems to be under the impression that her sadistic methods will cure her patients rather than making them worse.
* OneFederationLimit: of every creature, there is only one within Scare School (Casper is the only Ghost student, Ra the only mummy, Thatch the only vampire etc.) The only exceptions are Mickey and Monaco, who are both skeletons.
* OneSteveLimit: In a possibly accidental aversion, Jimmy has had two completely different bullies in different episodes, both named Norman. One has brown hair in a mullet hairstyle, and the other is a blond skater in a beanie and red hoodie. They appeared in the same scene in one episode (though the one with a mullet is possessing Casper).
* OnlySixFaces: A lot of humans look basically the same, based on the same generic model. The monsters are mostly a CastOfSnowflakes.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Thatch isn't harmed by sunlight and doesn't have to drink blood to survive.
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Wolfie is perpetually a werewolf. When there's a full moon he turns into a bigger werewolf and loses all control.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: Many of the creatures that would normally be former fleshies were never fleshies. Mantha was always a zombie, Ra was always a mummy, ''etc''. The only characters that were confirmed to be formerly human were Fly Boy and his father.
** However, in the episode "Scare Day", after Mantha wins a scaring competition, she mentions this is the best day of her ''afterlife''. This suggests she too was once a human, died, and then became a zombie.
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Mantha is smart and agile. The walking slowly while chanting "Braaains..." routine is just a scare tactic zombies use. And though she does eat brains, it's not all she eats.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: In "Potent Brew" Casper is trying to pull something from a toddler's grip and when Mantha scares the toddler into letting go, making her cry, Casper '''thanks''' her. What the hell.
* PowerParasite: In the 4-parter "Power Outage" Razznik steals everyone's powers with the help of a magic crystal.
* PowerTrio:
** Casper (Superego)
** Mantha (Ego)
** Ra (Id)
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: In "The Reflesherator" Fly Boy's father wants to be human again, but Fly Boy doesn't, so Fly Boy gets Casper, Mantha and Ra to help him destroy the machine that would cure them. Not once are Fly Boy's father's feelings considered.
* SecretKeeper: Jimmy
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: In "Possessed", one of the Normans called Mantha Casper's girlfriend.
-->'''Norman:''' Show me how to get home, and I won't mail your girlfriend's head to China.\\
'''Casper:''' She's not my--\\
'''Norman:''' Hmm, now where can I find a box big enough?
* SingleMindedTwins: Mickey and Monaco
* SkunkStripe: Thatch
** Triclops
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: To find out whether or not it's Wolfie (who turned human), Thatch asked him if he remembers what Thatch did yesterday. Wolfie tells him of Thatch's prank on Alder and Dash, but he shuts Wolfie up and says he meant about the prank on Casper.
* StrangerInAStrangeSchool: Jimmy in the episode "A Real Little Monster".
* TerribleTrio: Thatch, Mickey and Monaco in the film
** Thatch, [[TheDragon Slither]], and [[DarkChick Dummy Girl]] in the series.
** The Ghostly Trio
* ThoseTwoGirls: Mickey and Monaco
* ThreeAmigos: Casper, Ra and Mantha.
* TimeToMove: the main plot of the episode "Ghost Bust a Move", in which Casper, Ra, Mantha and Wolfie try to help Jimmy from having to move away from Deedstown to a small desert town.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Casper
* [[CityOfAdventure Town of Adventure]]: Deedstown
* {{Valley Girl}}s: Mickey and Monaco
* WatchOutForThatTree: A RunningGag with Thatch in season 2.
* WheresTheFunInThat: Nurse Gorgon says this in "Fang Decay".
-->'''Nurse Gorgon:''' Oh, that fang looks bad, oh dear. This might take a lot of pain!
-->'''Thatch:''' Don't you mean "a lot of ice"?
-->'''Nurse Gorgon:''' Ice? Where's the fun in that?
