Tropes:

  • The Beautiful Elite: Most of the rich kids at the school act this way.
  • Disembodied Eyebrows: The default style of the characters as most of them have rather large eyes and not enough forehead space for eyebrows.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Billy has turned a part of Spencer's room into a chasm at one point during a diva fit, and has even possessed other unintentionally. Due to leaving his ectoplasm around he has accidentally created various monsters that he and Spencer in turn have to deal with before they hurt someone.
  • Expy: There is a particular Justin Bieber expy named Jonah Tyler Taylor (better known as J.T.T.) in "Phantom of the Popera".
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: This exchange between Billy and Spencer in "Billy Joe's Last Fan" when talking about Sam Hoover:
    Spencer: Well I bet you remember him wearing your underwear so he can see you..?
    Billy: ...Doesn't prove anything... The Cobra left a LOT of underwear lyin' around town...
    • In "Billy Joe Cobra Museum", Spencer's mom holds two water balloons in front of her chest, resembling...something else.
    • In "The Ghost of Spencer Wright" features a sequence in which Billy and Spencer are joined together by their rear ends. Billy's comment on the situation?
      Billy: Two guys, one butt?
    • In "Little Billy", Billy expresses a desire to stay at home to spend time with "Little Billy".
  • Hello, Nurse!: Billy quotes this word for word when, oddly, learning about microwaves. They turn out to make him sick and disfigured.
  • I See Dead People: Due to wearing one of Billy's amulets, Spencer can see, speak, and interact with him.
  • I See Them, Too: Spencer also gave some of Billy's possessions to his two best friends, Rajeev and Shanila.
  • Love Potion: Billy managed to create a song version of this that would cause any woman who hears it to fall in love with the singer. Spencer mistakenly sang it where Lolo could hear and caused her to fall head over heels for him, after Rajeev failed to do the same since he couldn't sing it properly.
  • Never Say "Die": Despite the show being about a boy and his ghost, the word 'die' is never said, and the concept of death is usually dodged around.
    • However in "Escape From Beverly Beverly High", Lolo was able to say killed when talking about breaking into Ponzi's vault.
      Lolo: If we help you we might get killed, but if we survive we'll be rid of you forever!
  • Non-Idle Rich: Mr. Minotaur works as an educator out of devotion for his idol Manuel P. Goppers and claims he doesn't need the pay because one of his ancestors invented the receipt.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Billy's ectoplasm can apparently bring anything to life or turn it into a ghost if consumed. Also, he can't be seen unless someone is wearing a personal item.
    • It's implied that this is partially due to him being bad at being a ghost, as in the series more powerful ghosts are able to appear without the need for people to be in posession of their personal items.
    • "Summertime Rules!" reveals that seagull poop makes him visible. It's never explained how or why though.
  • Pilot: Averted; there is no known pilot episode for this series.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Most of the girls, especially Mallory and Jessica. The latter's ponytails go almost to her hips.
  • Royalties Heir: When Mr. Minotaur becomes the Principal of Beverly Beverly High School and Alpha Bitch Lolo Calorie tries to use her father's wealth to intimidate him, he says he doesn't need bribes because one of his ancestors invented the receipt.
  • Running Gag: The "CALIENTE" joke on "School of Rockers"
  • Scenery Porn: The backgrounds scenes in the series are really colorful and gorgeous.
  • Shout-Out: There are various shout outs to Mario and Tron in "Axe Maniac", and Billy will reference other, actual bands in casual conversation from time to time.
    • In "Billy's Achilles" the song Billy sings has lyrics reminiscent of a song sang by an irl dead popstar.
    • "The Sleepover" is basically a G-rated version of The Hangover, right down to its name.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Danny Phantom, not only are both shows about ghosts, Spencer looks a lot like Danny.
    • Arguably, Teen Angel, especially the ongoing conflict of Spencer getting caught "talking to himself".
  • Stalker With a Crush: The mysterious Madame X, who wants to add Billy's ghost to her collection.
  • Sweetheart Sipping: Sam Hoover and Billy in "Billy Joe's Last Fan" during Hoover's memory montage of their day.
    • Billy does this again with Rajeev in "Three's A Crowd".
  • íThree Amigos!: Spencer, Rajeev and Shanila.
