However, note that mentioning the killing of dogs *is* a running gag. There's also an entire Halloween special (Mr. Poofers Must Die!") dedicated to attempting to kill an imaginary dog, but nobody can do it.

there are vague hints at Señor Cardgage potentially being a kiddie fiddler in the Sbemail 'licensed', where Cardgage is known to own a 'shady daycare'. Strong Bad explicitly states that it is 'the kind that are open 24 hours and are surrounded by barbed wire'. This entire segment is played out as a joke, and Cardgage is not proven to be a paedophile.

Homestar and Marzipan, who are (sometimes) dating, are often mean or even violent to eachother - though this is usually slapstick in tone and played for laughs. Strong Bad is also often rude and mean to his younger brother, Strong Sad, which is also played for laughs.

Reference is made to "shady daycares," but this is a throwaway gag.

In "Characters from Yonder Website," it's revealed at the end that the characters were drinking expired Smarty Juice, which caused them to pass out and hallucinate themselves as characters in the titular children's show. Strong Sad also joins in at the end. The Smarty Juice the characters were drinking could be seen as a type of drug similar to LSD/acid, but it's all played for laughs.

In the Sbemail 'little animal', Strong Bad purposely kicks The Cheat in response to an email. This is played humorously.

In "Homestar Enters The Spooky Woods" an illustration of a dead raccoon is shown and its more realistic than the rest of the shows art style so it can be jarring

They appear several times in the series, but most notable is Gavin the cockroach (since he, y'know, has a name).

A handful of scenes suggest that Homestar Runner shaves, however; this is shown to not be stubble but a puff of cinnamon he has put on his face to give the illusion of facial hair. Strong Bad claims to be growing a mustache, but this is a throwaway gag.

in "different town", strong bad mentions that he wants the king of town to be buried alive while surrounded by peas, and in "somber vacation", strong sad mentions burying himself alive in sand.

Marzipan and Homestar have an on-again/off-again relationship, but at least once Marzipan went on a date with someone else while it was presumably on-again.

Senor Cardgage, a character who is portrayed first as extremely creepy and eventually as strange to the point of defying physics, is sometimes implied to be homeless. He is occasionally seen sleeping on the steeet. His character is almost exclusively played for laughs and there are no real, lasting consequences of this condition.

On the rare occasion something bad happens that has lasting consequences, it's played for laughs (like the "deaths" of Strong Bad's various personal computers) and no one is shown to meaningfully suffer as a result for any extended period of time.
