* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Not his films, but he [[ParodiedTrope mercilessly parodied]] this in a theater warning which featured himself. He's supposed to tell the audience that smoking is restricted in the theater, but he does so by intentionally sending out mixed signals, like happily puffing on a cigarette himself and questioning the validity of the rule.

* RefugeInAudacity: '''Yes'''. Screenings of ''Film/PinkFlamingos'' handed out vomit bags called "Pink Phlegmingos."
-->Waters told the film critic Dennis Dermody that vomit was like a standing ovation, and Dermody, who was working in one of the theaters at that time, said hed had to clean up about three ovations a night.

* InsultBackfire: A long-delayed example, but it counts. Rex Reed had hated ''Female Trouble'', to the point that in his review he had asked, "Where do these people come from? Where do they go when the sun goes down? Isn't there a law or something?" When ''Female Trouble'' was released on [=DVD=], this quote was on the front of its box.

* IdenticalStranger: He looks so similar to Creator/SteveBuscemi that he once put a picture of Buscemi on his Christmas cards to see if anyone would notice.

[[CreatorProvincialism His films all take place in Baltimore]], and are packed with as much sleaze as possible. They celebrate trashy Americana, with [[{{Camp}} awful fashion and gaudy designs]] featured prominently. [[ProductionPosse He has a regular group of actors]], chief among them the late [[{{DragQueen}} drag performer]] Divine.
