  • Jerkass Woobie:
    • Screwie. He’s definitely rather abrasive and can be insensitive towards Olie and the others, but “Orb’s Well that Ends Well” shows that he’s actually quite sad and worried about how others will see him due to his weird shape. It’s quite easy to feel sorry for him when he expresses his insecurities to Mrs. Triangle, and her being sympathetic towards him makes it all the more satisfying.
    • Gloomius Maximus before his Heel–Face Turn. As much as he despises anything positive like fun and happiness, it’s hard not to want him to get some of it, as he’s lived an entire life of dreariness and negativity.

  • Narm: The Skyward Scream in "It's a Roundiful Life". "WHAT ABOUT MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!???"
  • Nightmare Fuel: Gloomius Maximus' first appearance, The Great Defender of Fun. He was basically a kid-friendly version of the Dementors from Harry Potter, a pirate who sucked the fun and happiness out of any living creature and object. His home, the Galaxy of Gloom is just as creepy. It doesn't even look like a galaxy, but more like a black hole sucking in frowning planets, moons, stars and suns.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Young Uncle Gizmo is voiced by then-unknown Michael Cera.
