* HopeSpot: Jim remains optimistic that the emergency services will soon be along to assist them, completely unaware that ''all'' emergency services were wiped out when the nuke hit. In fact, there isn't much government left.

* MoodWhiplash: The cheery approach the Bloggses take to the whole thing is made more heart wrenching as the story keeps cutting to the enemy preparing to launch the nuke, letting the reader/watcher know that yes, there is indeed a nuke coming. Even after the nuke comes, the Bloggses cling to their CosyCatastrophe memories of surviving UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and try to remain optimistic about the whole thing.
