* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The "good" beetles in the second episode really did want to help Toast Boy, however, their poor knowledge of human anatomy and psyche betrayed them.
* IAmNotShazam: Though "Toast Boy" is the main character's given name, "Spoilsbury" is never mentioned.
* MemeticMolester: In the final short, a beetle in the walls has this small conversation with Toast Boy:
-->'''Beetle in the walls''': ''I've been watching you, little toast slave... In the shower, yes? Becoming quite the young gentleman, aren't we, [[LampshadedDoubleEntendre if you know what I mean.]]''
* NauseaFuel: Anything having to do with the grandma. Particularly [[spoiler:"Give granny's gash a moisten with that cream. Mind out, there might be a few loose kernels down there." The "kernels" turn out to be ''beetles''.]]
* NightmareFuel: The {{Freak Out}}s. All of them.
* {{Squick}}: Almost everything, particularly the grandma and some of Toast Boy's nightmares. [[spoiler:Especially the one where he watches two human-size beetles have sex, and then as two beetles ''rape his grandma''.]]
* UglyCute: Toast Boy and Liache count, mostly because both are on the verge of [[TheWoobie woobie]] status.
