* NeverSuicide: ''And'' ConvictionByContradiction; halfway through the first movie, Ace's client supposedly commits suicide. The police are quick to assume it's suicide brought on by the stress of the upcoming Super Bowl, which the players are becoming increasingly paranoid about due to Snowflake's disappearance. Ace {{Sherlock Scan}}s the room, finds a spot of blood under the railing, then says murder. Einhorne is quick to dismiss him, but Ace is quick to determine a witness heard the client scream, supposedly as he threw himself from his hotel balcony. He then determines that the police had to open the balcony door when they entered the hotel room. Finally, [[spoiler:he goes to the balcony and starts screaming at the top of his lungs while sliding the door open and shut, ''perfectly silencing his scream.'']]
-->[[spoiler:This is double-paned sound-proof glass. There is no way that neighbor could've heard Roger Podacter scream on the way down with that door shut. The scream she heard came from inside the apartment before he was thrown over the balcony and the murderer closed the door before he left.]]

** Ace himself, given how he breaks into random impressions, literally talks out of his ass and puts on an ObfuscatingInsanity act that's not too much of a stretch for him.

Notably, while Creator/JimCarrey enjoyed himself in the original, he allegedly disliked the sequel so much, that he vowed to never do a sequel again, a vow he kept for twenty years, until he made ''Film/DumbAndDumberTo'' in 2014.

** And of course, there's Ace finding out Einhorn is Finkle, with a scene reminiscent of ''Film/TheCryingGame''.

The entire gimmick of Ace Ventura is that he's a modern-day Franchise/SherlockHolmes... mixed with Franchise/{{Tarzan}} and Literature/DoctorDolittle. Using these "skills", Ace becomes a Pet Detective, finding and saving animals. In the first movie he appears as nothing more than a local nut helping people find their lost cats and whatnot, but being the only Pet Detective in the area (and possibly existence), he gets roped into a high-profile investigation. Possibly due to this, he's become pretty well known in the second movie, where he is hired to recover a sacred bat stolen from two African tribes before war erupts between them.

* DisappearedDad: Ace himself in ''Ace Ventura Jr.'', having disappeared while flying a plane full of animals over TheBermudaTriangle.



* MundaneMadeAwesome: In the first movie, Ace sneaking into the dolphin tank, to the tune of ''Mission: Impossible''.

* PoliceAreUseless: The Miami police department don't get anywhere in finding Snowflake themselves, and miss an important clue in the investigaton of Roger Podactor's death. Though this may be justified, as [[spoiler: Einhorn was behind both events, and deliberately kept the department off-course.]]

* {{Transsexual}}: Done as part of a parody of ''Film/TheCryingGame'', with the villain actually being [[spoiler: Lt. Lois Einhorn, who this whole time was really the missing football player Ray Finkle, having gone through complete transition (but remaining non-op), adopted the identity of a missing hiker, and became a Lieutenant, seemingly all in the sake of the perfect disguise]].

The inclusion of the song was the filmmakers' way of venting their frustration over someone else using the [[UnsettlingGenderReveal "He's a she"]] twist before the got a chance to.[[/note]]

* {{Expy}}: Ace's egotism, as well as his CatchPhrase "Alrighy then!" came from one of Jim Carrey's characters on Series/InLivingColor, The Overly-Confident Gay Man.
