* CrackFic: Most of the XMeetsY formulas for the Seltzer and Friedberg are bizarre beyond belief, with the very few threads connecting them being that they were in the public's zeitgeist by the time the film was created. For example, "Meet The Spartans" was ''Film/ThreeHundred'' combined with ''Film/MeetTheParents''. As WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic [[BlatantLies eloquently asked]]: "'''What''' the '''fuck''' do those two things have in common?!"

* RedundantParody: Sometimes, they make jokes that were present in the original source material. For example, the Wolverine parody in ''Epic Movie'' uses his middle claw to flip Edward the finger. This would be a valid parody of the character... if the real Wolverine didn't do the ''exact same thing'' in the first ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' movie.

After ''Disaster Movie'' flopped even by their standards (largely due to popping up in August, which has become a much more crowded Dump Month in recent years), they took a short break before jumping on board the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' train with ''Film/VampiresSuck''. While the latter was still not well received, it did slightly better critically than their previous couple of films and returned them to box office glory. They are currently working on two more projects, ''Best Night Ever'' and ''The Starving Games'', the latter a clear parody of ''Film/TheHungerGames.'' While their output has slowed since their heyday, they've hardly stopped.

* DontExplainTheJoke: Every single reference will be explained flatly to the audience. ''TheSoup'' made fun of this with a parody of the movies entitled "Reference Movie" in which every character parody explained who they were and said "Get it?"

* NarrowParody: The movies "parodied" are often only one or two years old. For example, ''Film/DisasterMovie'' had parodies of ''Film/{{Juno}}'', ''Series/HannahMontana'', ''Film/IronMan'', ''Series/SexAndTheCity'', ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'', ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'', ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'', ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', ''Film/{{Hancock}}'', ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'', ''Film/{{Superbad}}'', ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'', ''Film/TheLoveGuru'', ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'', ''Film/{{Wanted}}'', ''Film/{{Beowulf}}'', ''Film/NightAtTheMuseum'', ''Film/{{Jumper}}'', and ''Film/TenThousandBC''. None of these movie were older than a year at the time, and many were in fact released after ''Disaster Movie'' hit theaters.

Due to the nature of their films largely being simplistic parodies of whatever is popular at the time, a number of other parody films in the same style have been wrongly attributed to them. This includes ''Not Another Teen Movie'', ''Film/SuperheroMovie'' (which was in fact by a ''different'' pair of ''Scary Movie'' alumni), and ''Dance Flick'' (which was actually the Wayans brothers).

* ActorAllusion: Hector Jimenez and Kal Penn appear in both ''Epic Movie'' and the subjects of parody (''NachoLibre'' and ''Film/SupermanReturns''), adding two actors to the short list of those to get roles in both the straight and parody adaptations.

* HumongousMecha: In ''Meet the Spartans''. It even has a TV screen on its chest playing ChrisCrocker's Britney Spears rant. For no reason.
