* '''Exaggerated''': ???

to:

* '''Exaggerated''': ???Bill goes so far as to shave or cut off any new parts he's growing due to the transformation, and stops speaking just in case he develops the VerbalTic present for weresharks.



* '''Zig Zagged''': ???

to:

* '''Zig Zagged''': ???Bill suppresses animalistic urges, alright - but not of the murderous sort. Until a timeskip several years ahead. He still never gets around to killing anyone... [[AccidentalMurder On purpose]].



* '''Lampshaded''': ???
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': ???

to:

* '''Lampshaded''': ???
"Better not let Bill sleep at our house any more - he won't act himself much longer."
* '''Invoked''': ???
"How did you get yourself infected by a wereshark?!" says Bill's closest friend. "If I see even the slightest hint that you're turning, I'll... I'll have to kill you!"
* '''Exploited''': ???Bill actively having to resist acting a certain way just because of his species - and failing miserably - is used as propaganda against said species.



* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???

to:

* '''Discussed''': ???
"I heard Bill's been going to a therapist just because he got bitten by a wereshark. Something about 'urges'. He's always put behind some bars before the sessions begin."
* '''Conversed''': ???"20 bucks says Bill's gonna kill someone within the end of this episode and the writers'll use not being quite human as his excuse."
* '''Implied''': Bill, who would never hurt a fly, was turned into a wereshark shortly before being PutOnABus. A few months after his last appearance he is given a brief cameo... Where he is seen hauled away by police, having just murdered someone in his wereshark state, but still crying what looks like TearsOfRemorse.
* '''Deconstructed''': Bill asks for a MercyKill or commits suicide as he finds it harder to reconcile his pacifist nature with his homicidal one.
* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': The show is fond of aesops about how not everyone from a certain group acts the same way. In fact, most of Bill's "urge-suppressing" is just him being a BoomerangBigot.
* '''Played For Laughs''': Bill may have the urges to murder somebody... But nobody said he suddenly had to get ''good'' at it. A montage of failed murder attempts, each more ridiculous than the last, follows.
