In 2001 Stanley and his monster appeared in, of all things, a ''ComicBook/GreenArrow'' story arc written by Creator/KevinSmith -- which was not fluffy or whimsical ''at all''. Let's not talk about that. They also made a cameo in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' and in a story arc in ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman''.

Added DiffLines:

* ABoyAndHisX: A boy and his big, red monster.


* DeusExMachina: Invoked by the narration when Nyx has the Monster cornered at one point. "Luckily, every good story is allowed one amazing coincidence. The writer has decided to cash his in now. (Convenient lightning strike hits Nyx)."



* HighHeelFaceTurn: DoubleSubversion. Nyx, the Monster's ex, had been trapped in a punishment chamber after failing to capture the Monster until Stanley storms Hell's gates to free him. When Spot frees Nyx, they reconcile thanks to a combination of Nyx's abandonment and trust issues, the Monster's love for Nyx... and Stanley's heartfelt belief in this trope. As soon as the group leaves Hell, Nyx returns to herself, and tries to attack the Monster -- but it's clearly because HopeIsScary (even before Stanley's influence, it's clear that Nyx and the Monster still had unresolved feelings for each other). Duma and Remiel decide to leave her alone at the end of the miniseries because she "has not completely rejected [good]," hoping that sooner or later she and the other demons might eventually see the light and allow the angels to return to Heaven.



* ToHellAndBack

to:

* ToHellAndBackToHellAndBack: Stanley has to enlist the aid of Ambrose Bierce and the Phantom Stranger to rescue Spot from Hell.



** Thank god it all ends on a (relatively) happy note; [[spoiler: Spot only eats Stanley's grandfather because [[KarmicDeath he really, really deserved it]] and the Monster later erases Stanley's memories of all this horror to restore his mental health]].
