* BloodlessCarnage: Spoofed in George's ''Franchise/{{Rambo}}'' fantasy sequence, where he sweeps an automatic rifle along a line of {{Mooks}} on a hillside. A moment later, they bloodlessly collapse simultaneously. Also during the ConanTheBarbarian spoof; Conan splits a patron bloodlessly in half.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousDisorder: Multiple professional reviews of the film refer to Stanley as "mentally retarded," but the character is never stated to be mentally disabled, nor would Yankovic likely ever mock the mentally disabled.

* RealityEnsues: George bursts in like a {{Badass}} to save Stanley from his kidnappers and winds up getting himself captured in ''seconds''. Why? Well, the "bursting in like a {{Badass}}" part was [[DidntThinkThisThrough as far as he thought it through]].

* CreatorsApathy: Parodied InUniverse with ''Film/{{Gandhi}} II'', in which the original classic is given a cheesy action sequel that directly opposes everything about the original film and Gandhi's way of life. Instead of a Hindu, ascetic, passive resistance icon, he's a steak-chomping, high-rolling, gun-toting, shit-talking street vigilante with martial arts skills. (Indiaxplotation?)

* RareMoney: The penny that Fletcher gives to the beggar turns out to be a rare 1955 doubled die penny, which is worth thousands of dollars even in well-worn condition.
