* AnimatedMusicVideo: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCV2h1uHx3o One]] for Music/FallOutBoy's "Carpal Tunnel of Love". [[spoiler: The band themselves only turn up for a few seconds and are abruptly decapitated half way through. The video also manages to capture three of the show's signature styles into three minutes; EyeScream, BrickJoke and BodyHorror.]]

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: ''Every'' character's deaths are like this. Ironically, the least cruel and "cleaner" deaths, such as carbon monoxide inhalation and being instantly and cartoonishly electrocuted are seen as the most unusual deaths in the show.

Added DiffLines:

* DwindlingParty: Many of the longer episodes have plots like this, especially where all the featured characters start off in some sort of group together. By the end, typically only one (or none at all) is still alive.

Added DiffLines:

* InformedSpecies: Many of the characters do not look much like their species. Sniffles looks more like an aardvark rather than an anteater, and the Mole and Cro-Marmot do not look like their respective species, rather they look sort of like bears.

Added DiffLines:

** Splendid may be one too. Flying squirrels arenít terribly common in cartoons.

** Several episodes feature comical devices or fantastic vehicles, such as the Driller with a bubble porthole in Hole Lotta Love. You'd expect the driller to dig a hole around the entirety of the vehicle, but it only digs a hole big enough for the body to go through, which unfortunately destroys the porthole and crushes Mole's head.
* RecordNeedleScratch: Occurs in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU9Lp0TV_WU&feature=related this]] Christmas short and in "Ipso Fatso" when Disco Bear realizes he's fat.

** In "Easy Comb, Easy Go", when Disco Bear's afro is shaved off, he tries to replace it by sticking his head in a cotton candy maker. It works, but the friction from the spinning machine gives him several blisters on his head.

Added DiffLines:

* ReducedToDust: In "Easy Comb, Easy Go", when Disco Bear's hair spray creates a hole in the ozone layer, the resulting beam of radiation instantly disintegrates Toothy and he gets blown away on the wind.

Added DiffLines:

* HalfTheManHeUsedToBe: in "False Alarm", the impact from Nutty hitting Petunia in Cuddles' stolen car causes her lower body to basically explode and her organs to fly out.


** The "False Alarm" episode is packed with video game references, being a HTF episode made as a tie-in with a video game of the same name.

Added DiffLines:

* SmashCut: Used in "False Alarm" when Nutty buys a dump truck full of candy from Lifty and Shifty. As Nutty opens his arms waiting for the candy to fall on him, it abruptly cuts to a heart monitor in a hospital and shows that much of the candy impaled him.


* ''Aggravated Asphalt''[[labelnote:Note]]Has no confirmed smartphone release, but, being a HTML5 game, can also be played that way, albeit without being a standalone app.[[/labelnote]]

* MajorInjuryUnderreaction: In "In Over Your Hedge", Lumpy initially doesn't reach much to Fliqpy impaling him with two lawn flamingoes. He does scream immediately afterward, but that was at the sight of Fliqpy running at him.



** In "As You Wish", Pop's wish from Lumpy is to fix Cub's toy fire engine, but Lumpy sets Cub on fire, causing him to run out into the road where he gets hit by an actual fire engine. He survives, only to get crushed by Lifty and Shifty's van and the giant disco ball that Disco Bear had wished for earlier.

* ImprobableInfantSurvival: Horribly averted with Cub, but played straight with [[FurryConfusion non-anthropomorphic animals]], including Lumpy's elephant, Toothy's tortoise, and Whistle, which have an extraordinarily good survival rate. Chances are, if an animal plays a major role in an episode, they're not going to die onscreen.

** Flippy plays with this trope, and when it ''is'' worse, that's an {{understatement}}.

* MadeOfPlasticine: Happens to almost every character (who died at least once) in the series, on many occasions. A good example for this is when Cuddles trips on a staircase in ''Sweet Ride'' and, [[ToonPhysics only for that]], gets sliced into pieces.

* MadeOfPlasticine: Happens to almost every character (who died at least once) in the series, on many occasions. Characters are often mutilated or killed by trauma that would not be nearly so serious in real life. A good example for this is when Cuddles trips on a staircase in ''Sweet Ride'' and, [[ToonPhysics only for that]], gets sliced into pieces.
