Added DiffLines:

** Dipper hucks a candy bar at the Trickster, which absorbs it into its body. Later it turns out it's ''made'' of candy.

Added DiffLines:

* LightEqualsHope: The Trickster's deadline was "before the last Jack-O-Melon is blown out". The kids rally after Dipper ends up dumping the candy, but townsfolk have begun blowing out their melon-lanterns. Grenda grabs the last one from Old Man [=McGuckett=] before he blows it out. But her gusty sigh of relief is enough to snuff the candle and count as blowing it out. The Trickster immediately looms out of the darkness ready to attack.


* BigDamnHeroes: Soos (temporarily) saves the gang from the Summerween Trickster by ramming into it with his pickup truck.
** And then ''permanently'' saves it by [[spoiler: liking the candy the Trickster was made of]]. Soos was straight-up the Big Damn Hero of this episode.

* AnthropomorphicFood:
** Candy dresses up like a peppermint candy for Summerween. "I am so sweet, I could eat myself!"
** The Summerween Trickster turns out to be an amalgam of unwanted "loser candy".

Added DiffLines:

* IGotARock: There's a running gag about "loser candy" like black licorice and chalky old chocolates. Then it turns out the Summerween Trickster is the embodiment of all those unwanted candies.
