Tropes:

  • Adaptation Expansion: Anna's backstory is expanded on here. In addition to her Dark and Troubled Past per Dead by Daylight canon, she reveals to Charlie the story of her childhood and how her mother met her father.
  • All Animals Are Dogs: The Demogorgon behaves like an extremely affectionate dog towards the Hazbin crew and the Killers despite being an Eldritch Abomination. Max even nicknames it Snuffles!
  • Bad Boss: As Evan puts it, displeasing the Entity is a surefire way to earn its wrath.
  • Balls of Steel: Caleb isn't even fazed by Vaggie kicking him in the crotch at the hotel bar, even commending her strength.
  • Being Evil Sucks: While its not stated explicitly, its implied that most of the Killers(minus Herman) weren't exactly fond of having to kill people to satisfy the Entity despite doing its bidding. Phillip even calls out Angel Dust for assuming he enjoyed killing people when they talked to each other in the hotel library
  • Berserk Button: Evan hates being called a coward, which causes him to lash out at Charlie when she implies that he served the Entity out of fear. He calms down when he realizes she wasn't intending to mock him.
      Advertisement:
    • Max HATES when people treat him as a freak due to his Dark and Troubled Past stemming from his unusual appearance, which his rampage in the news tower can attest to
    • Herman Carter does not take being called insignificant well, as demonstrated when he attempts to kill Charlie after she rubs it into his framed face.
  • Brutal Honesty: Herman can be quite candid for an Ax-Crazy Mad Doctor when he wants to, though not without cruelty as shown when he tears into Charlie's dream of rehabilitating sinners in Hell.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Charlie, after finding out Herman's plans, points out in her "Reason You Suck" Speech to him that demons like him are a dime a dozen for her father, Lucifer.
  • Cool and Unusual Punishment: Angel inflicts this on Jeffery as part of his rehabilitation by forcing the clown on a diet and exercise plan.
  • Advertisement:
  • Dark and Troubled Past: All the Killers have this by default considering what happened that had them end up working for the Entity before it "died".
  • Denser and Wackier: For the Killers, Hell is much more vibrant and chaotic compared to the eerie cold of the Fog
  • Evil Is One Big, Happy Family: Evil is stretching it, but the Killers see each other like family due to their shared experiences of working for the Entity.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Caleb, being a mercenary from the Wild West, is mystified by Hell's modern tech, which is shown when he asks Charlie on how the hotel's elevators work. Justified in that Caleb was also an inventor before being enlisted by the Entity.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: The Demogorgon, a monstrous beast from the Upside Down and formerly one of the Entity's killers, also goes by the name of Snuffles courtesy of Max.
  • Freak Out: Charlie nearly does so from the stress of having to deal with the numerous volatile personalities in the Hazbin Hotel, with Jeffery's presence not helping matters. Vaggie tries to alleviate her burden by taking up the job of hotel manager but backs out once she experiences how stressful the job is first-hand
  • Gorn: Max, Herman, and Alastor practically paint the news tower with gore during their rampage there
  • Manchild: Max is a lot like an overgrown little boy due to his Dark and Troubled Past at the hands of his Abusive Parents depriving him of the opportunity to have a happy childhood and make friends. However, he can veer into Psychopathic Manchild sometimes when it comes to talking about his past or if he's pissed off
    • Anna also qualifies due to her isolated childhood in the Russian wilderness
  • Mr. Fanservice: Even with his body Covered in Scars Evan is still quite physically attractive when shirtless.
  • Mugging the Monster: A group of demon muggers decide to accost Anna and Sally as they navigate through the slums of Pentagram City after seeing them as easy targets. The muggers get killed and dismembered for their troubles before Sally spares the sole survivor of the group to ask him for information on their current surroundings and directions to the nearest lodging spots.
  • Nickname Basis: Zigzagged, all the Killers are referred to with their titles before they meet the Hazbin Hotel crew before they are referred to with their real names
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Michael applies, as he manages to intimidate most of the Hazbin Group without even needing to speak.
  • Oh, Crap!: Played for Laughs when Charlie proceeds to sing "Inside of Every Demon Is a Rainbow" after Evan asks her to tell him about herself
    “Tell me about yourself.” He said awkwardly, as if the words had never been uttered by him before. Slowly, she smiled, and she cleared her throat and stood. Was she going to SING?! What in the name of the Entity had he just requested?!
    • And another Played for Laughs instance happens when Anna and Sally show up and the former sees Alastor. The Radio Demon just barely avoids getting a hatchet to the skull and an amused Husk points out that while Alastor's smile didn't falter, his eyes betrayed him with an "Oh shit" look in them.
  • Omniglot: Charlie can speak just about any language except for extinct ones and obscure dialects, which comes in handy for talking with Anna, who doesn't speak English.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Despite being minions to the Entity, most of the Killers simply did their duties mainly because they wouldn't have to suffer its wrath. Outside of their "job", they're perfectly willing to interact with other individuals such as the Hazbin Hotel team and aren't total jerks to everyone.
  • Ship Tease: Plenty between Sally and Phillip
  • The Dreaded: Caleb had this reputation not just among the living but also the residents of Hell for his ruthlessness as a bounty hunter. Even Charlie is noticeably afraid of him when she first meets him
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Apart from Alastor, everyone hates Herman Carter because of his sadism and sociopathy.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Herman tears into Charlie's idealism and her plans for redemption, dismissing them as naïve fantasy
    Herman: And just what makes you two qualified to review MY work? Are you two trained psychiatrists? Are you neurologists? Do either of you have any education in medicine or therapy? No. I know neither of you do, otherwise you’d already have patients, and you wouldn’t have desperate need of one such as myself!” He snarled. Vaggie glared and Charlie winced. She stammered for a response, but Carter continued his tirade. “Even if you did have training, it wouldn’t matter. I’ve reviewed footage of your fiasco of an interview with those news anchors: you live in a world of absolute delusion. Your expectations are so beyond unrealistic they are borderline psychotic. You think that these wretches you call ‘patients’ will be willing to change, but you’re wrong. If they are down here, then they have become so defined by their vices and failings that they will have to be forcefully corrected. They will have to suffer. They will cry, they will beg, they will scream and curse…and judging from what I’ve seen, you lack the nerve to have them see their therapy through to the end. You have far too much empathy for one who oversees a rehabilitation institution. Even now, the many-limbed nymphomaniac snorts nose-candy, and your receptionist is a raging alcoholic. How can you hope to change someone like Evan or myself, when you can’t even bring yourself to be stern with those two? You’re so sweet to everyone that it genuinely sickens me when I think of how much power and privilege is wasted on you. Had you even a hint of a spine for enforcing your own will over others, you’d have plenty of patients by now, and you wouldn’t be such an embarrassment to your parents, who are so ashamed of you that they’re willing to watch from afar as you humiliate yourself for all of Hell to see!
    • Charlie repays the favor when she confronts Herman in the hotel
      Charlie: So that’s it then? Your brilliant plan was just…mind control?
      Herman: Are you mocking me, Charlotte?
      Charlie: And to think you called ME naïve.
      Herman: Care to elaborate on that!? (hands sparking)
      Charlie: (sneering at Herman) Oh, gladly~! You see, my father—you might have heard of him—Lucifer, has been ruling Hell for as long as Hell has existed! I won’t bother telling you just how long that’s been, but he’s lost track of the number of upstarts, petty tyrants, scheming politicians, and madmen like you who have tried to depose him. (stifling a yawn) At the end of the day, despite your ‘brilliance’ and your appetite for cruelty, you’re just another mundane, unimportant demon, Herman. (smiling) How does that make you feel? Do you want to talk about it?
  • The Speechless: Phillip Ojomo can't talk because the Entity tore out his tongue for daring to defy its will.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Herman Carter qualifies as this among the Killers, oh so very much. Jeffery Hawk and Caleb Quinn qualify to a lesser extent, being mostly neutral with a side of Jerkass.
  • Training from Hell: Played for Laughs when Vaggie solicits Angel Dust to put Jeffery through the ringer to help him lose some weight after Jeffery tells Vaggie about his Dark and Troubled Past
  • Villain Has a Point: As cruel as Herman's "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Charlie is, he's not wrong about how most of Hell's denizens would refuse to willingly redeem themselves given their sin-filled lives.
  • Violence Is Disturbing: The rampage in the news tower is treated this way, with Charlie and Vaggie being visibly repulsed by the carnage inflicted inside
