Description Cut: At a very public trial, the judge gives the Squad 2,000 hours of community service as punishment for various crimes. He then asks if Steph if she has anything else to say, and she clicks off the TV, since it was actually a recording of the trial.
J.C.: I can't believe you said that.
Steph: He deserved it.
J.C.: Yeah, but he doubled our hours!
Devil in Plain Sight: The Vampires of Bakertown High, who masquerade as the school's cheerleading team and student council.
Fan Convention: The Squad has to do community service in the form of an appearce at ParaCon, which are full of people who consider the crew as evil hunters.
Fantastic Racism: Steph's attitude towards all 'cryptids'. Then her sister became one.
Even more "off" due to twocrossovers with Layla. Layla evidently managed to miss the whole TV fame of her old friend and "kill all cryptids" video on YouTube, but for her obliviousness is in character. She had to talk about it with oh so polite Maria, though.
Monster Wrongs Group: Steph finds herself butting heads with PETM (People for the Ethical Treatment of Monsters), who demand that ‘cryptids’ be captured alive and unharmed.
A notable subversion (especially when compared to PETA) is that PETM are well aware cryptids are dangerous and even have standard issue tasers. As Summerfield put it, they're naive, not stupid.
O'Keefe takes the entire thing to ridiculous extremes, such as refusing to let the army bomb an "innocent cryptid" who mind-controlled half the county (there are good reasons not to drop a bomb on a bunch of people, but that isn't one of them) and later gets the president to declare a Kaiju that's about to destroy the city and possibly the world an endangered species, forbidding the military from attacking. Well, the Squad is forbidden too, but they ignore it.
A couple of guestcomics by Adam for Eerie Cuties were set in a flashback focusing on Layla and Steph as kids. Turns out it was Layla that gave Steph her hairpin saying that they (her and Steph's hairpins) come in pairs. The two strips close with Steph in the present day wondering what Layla was up to at the moment. As far as Adam is concerned, the comics are canon for Paranormal Mystery Squad.
Which, coupled with the latest comics (as of this writing), where Nina, Layla, Blair and their mother Maria make an appearance, pretty much confirms that Eerie Cuties, Magick Chicks*
by extension, since it shares the same universe as Eerie Cuties.
The Unfair Sex: Steph as per most of her jerkass tendencies, for example she blames the whole Katie turning into a werewolf on J.C. when really Katie had wandered off on her own. J.C, despite being a nice guy, thankfully isn't a doormat and more then willing to call her out on this.
Van Helsing Hate Crime: Steph who believes all cryptids are evil roughly stemming what happened to her parents. Things gets complicated when her sister is turned into a werewolf and the newest member of their team is revealed to be a Dhampyr.
