* AnticlimaxBoss: {{Satan}} arrives to [[DealWithTheDevil claim Ryan's soul]] for bringing Shelley BackFromTheDead! [[spoiler: Shelley punches him in the groin and he goes away again.]]
* ArchivePanic: ''SGR'' ran for seven years, and towards the end there were four comics a week. Adding ''Bobbins'' (about a thousand strips) makes over ten years of comics: when you put them all together ''and'' add the sporadic ''Scareodelia'' comics, you get...a realisation that John Allison is much more productive that you are.
* ContinuityLockOut: ''Scary Go Round'' ended in September 2009 because John Allison decided the weight of continuity was putting off too many new readers. He then started another comic, ''BadMachinery'', and began panicking that the drop-off in web traffic meant he'd shot himself in the foot. Seems to be recovering, though.
* CrazyAwesome: Tim, Fallon and Shelley all have their moments of this.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: When Shelley [[spoiler: punches the devil himself in the groin.]]
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: [[http://scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20090608 The beginning]] of the final chapter (dated June 08, 2009) introduces a character who is a very obvious parody of MichaelJackson. You can already tell how this is going to end, can't you. John Allison later put up a news post explaining that the character's appearance in the storyline had been long planned out, and Jackson's death just happened to be an unfortunate coincidence.
* MoralEventHorizon: Rachel crosses it when she [[http://www.scarygoround.com/sgr/ar.php?date=20040519 tries to have Shelley killed]], and she's definitely gone when she shows no remorse for it.
