* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Eliot, after spending most of "Howl the Conquering Hero" trying to get Artie to see him as a hero, decides that Terri deserves that title more than he does, and convinces Artie to rewrite his school paper to reflect that. At the end of the episode, Eliot calls his own mother.

* TearJerker: The ending of "Ya Gotta Have Hart", when, after all his attempts to get a new job after being fired, it looks like Elliot will have to give up drawing Ace Hart, thus condemning the character to "death". The fact that Ace encourages him to do so makes it even ''more'' heartbreaking, as he can't exist unless he has a job in a cartoon, meaning he's effectively committing a HeroicSacrfice for Elliot. Luckily, there's a happy ending when Elliot is rehired.

* BadassDecay: Rosie O'Gravy, dedicated cop and a true badass in her own right, suffered from this horribly as she got downsized into staring in segments featuring her niece Dot, cutting her out of the major stories.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The format went from less emphasis on Ace and company to interrupting the story with short vignettes with an incarcerated Bugsy Vile reading short stories, Rosie and her little niece out and about, or the adventures of Yves and Stephen. Eliot, too, got a makeover, with a hip new wardrobe.

* CompleteMonster: Meat the Butcher, a sadistic canine with a habit of attacking with a cleaver, is [[JustifiedTrope an example of one designed to accommodate requests for Eliot to make the series]] DarkerAndEdgier. Naturally, Eliot deconstructs the trope by demonstrating just how unnecessarily depraved the character is and how moronic he is when Meat is tricked by Bugsy into getting meat-packaged as part of a "Senseless Showoff".

Added DiffLines:

** Eddie can be one at times too, beyond the episode where he was intentionally one. It's the constant "It's a well-known fact..." comments.

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: Screwie Louie initially comes off as just a paranoid nutjob assuming the screws are out to get him. But then Ace encounters him and he's a deranged piece of work.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeLogic: While applicable to RuleOfFunny, the setup of both worlds leads to some questions. Like how could there be a postal service in a world where virtually every dog will attack a mailman? And then you have things like the instinct to chase cars, yet they manage to drive them. But again, RuleOfFunny comes into play.

* BizarroEpisode: "In Your Dreams", where Eliot manages to fall asleep and then the whole episode [[RunningGag goes to the dogs]].
