    Violin Girl 
Voiced by: Tom Kenny

Nothing is much known about the character itself, but it's one off appearance in "Big Stinkin' City" is one of those sights a Courage fan never forgets. From the back it looks like a normal girl playing Violin (Though even this is considered Uncanny Valley considering everything else around is animated). But when it turns around it has a scary looking claymation face that brings the Uncanny Valley Up to 11 as there's realistic looks, animated background, and claymation all in one spot. Though it seems that the girl's face is not always like that, as she appears normal on a television that Eustace is watching later in the episode.

  • Creepy Child: Up to 11. She might as well do this to scare away visitors.
  • Demon Head: Really catches you off guard the first time you see it... (Especially if most likely as a kid you haven't seen headturn scares before). Though interestingly subverted when she appears in the same episode again on Eustace's TV with a normal girl's face.
  • Eye Pop: Her eyes bug out and wiggle.
  • Face-Revealing Turn: This was many a kid's first introduction to these kinds of jumpscares.
  • Fish Eyes: They bulge!
  • Humanoid Abomination: Though not always like this, because later on she is shown with a normal face on Eustace's TV.
  • Jump Scare: One of the many jumpscares in this shows.
  • Nightmare Face: Gets this when scaring away Courage.
  • The Spook: A normal looking girl but with a creepy clay face.

    Lint Lady 
Voiced by: John R. Dilworth

An insane, tiny, old lady with an obsession with lint. Doc Gerbil performed an experiment on her which gave her plungers for arms and legs, though she can still grab things with the suction cups.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Like many characters in the show, she has one.
  • Laughing Mad: Implied to have gone mad from being confined for so long by Doc Gerbil.

    "You're not Perfect" Nightmare 
Voiced by: ???

A blue... thing that appears in the first of Courage's nightmares in "Perfect". It appears to be either a warped bugle or possibly a deformed fetus with an equally deformed human face stuck onto it.
  • Body Horror: The creature appears to be a nightmarish amalgamation of Eustace's bugle and a human being. Most notably, the bugle's tube is spiraling into the top and protruding from the side of its head.
  • Conspicuous CG: Like Ramses, another intentional example.
  • Fetus Terrible: Not a normal example.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: There's absolutely no warning to its appearance.
  • The Grotesque: The creature may be freakishly deformed, but its facial expressions seem to imply that of a depressed and lonely individual.
  • The Eeyore: It noticeably sinks in emotionless fashion after saying its only line; combined with its color palette, the creature could very well be a personification of Courage's self-esteem at the time.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Barely on the line between this and full-on Eldritch Abomination.
  • Hypocritical Humor: It whispers that Courage is "not perfect", despite it being imperfect in form itself.
  • Nightmare Dreams: Appears as the first of several perfection-themed nightmares that Courage endures in the episode.
  • Our Monsters Are Weird: It's a blue, hazy, floating broken bugle with a face stuck on it, with weird tendrils attached to its head with thorns for ears and a whispery voice, often described as a "fetus." Words cannot describe it.

     The Blue Fish 
Voiced by: ???

A bizarre, blue-scaled, red-finned, green-eyed fish that appears in the bathtub to tell Courage that it's alright to be imperfect and accept his flaws as what makes him unique and beautiful.
  • Eat the Dog: Poor guy ends up being eaten for dinner. Played for Laughs- although he's now beer-battered, he's still alive and gets off a goofy laugh that basically takes the show to the point where things can't get any weirder, closing out the series poetically.
  • Nice Guy: He kindly helps Courage when the latter is at his lowest point.
  • Unexplained Accent: He has an argentininan accent in the latin american spanish dub, when no other character has one. He even swears in the name of Diego Maradona that he is imparting a good lesson to Courage.
  • You Are Better Than You T Hink You Are: The lesson he imparts to Courage.
