* RoomFullOfCrazy: Ray Finkle's room in ''Ace Ventura: Pet Detective'', covered with scrawls of "Laces Out" and "Die Dan Die," left Ace (and the audience) in no doubt that Finkle lost his mind following the disastrous missed field goal that cost the Dolphins the Super Bowl and that he's got some rather ugly designs on Dan Marino, whom he blames for the whole thing. Ace would later say of the room, "Cozy, if you're [[TheSilenceOfTheLambs Hannibal Lecter]]." It gets even creepier when you remember that his parents house is covered in graffiti that degrades and vilifies him. It's hatred within hatred.

* {{Transsexual}}: ''Ace Ventura: Pet Detective'' features one of the less flattering parodies of ''Film/TheCryingGame'', revealing that the villain is actually [[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]].
** Fortunately, the character is played by a woman, which removes most of the Squick for the viewers (but obviously not for the characters).


Added DiffLines:

* {{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]].

** Also, do NOT mess with his hair.



* AscendedExtra: Emilio, Aguado, and Mr. Shickadance get more to do in the animated series.

* AscendedExtra: Emilio, Aguado, and Mr. Shickadance and especially Emilio get more to do in the animated series.


Added DiffLines:

* BrokenPedestal: In the episode "Get Piggy", Ace is revealed to be a big fan of Gabe the Pig, a [[TalkingAnimal talking pig]] who's a movie star and who's been kidnapped; so much so that Ace is part of Gabe's fan club, knows the rules of the club by heart, and even [[ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules offers to take Gabe's case for free]]. However, after investigating a bit about Gabe, Ace is shocked to learn that [[NiceCharacterMeanActor Gabe is actually an egotistical, spoiled, violent jerkass]] who no one can stand. [[spoiler: And to top it all off, it turns out, Gabe himself staged his own kidnapping as a way to return to the spotlight, and even kidnaps and tries to kill Ace.]]
** Ace even reacts with disgust when he learns that a villain in an episode after that has an autographed photo of Gabe.
* CloneDegeneration: In "Ace Off", after a particularly intense dance competition, Ace's evil clone starts to melt and is...[[MakesAsMuchSenseInContext absorbed by him.]]
* DenserAndWackier: Far more than the original films. While they still maintained a semi-realistic tone; the series, especially during the third season, had Ace deal with supervillains, all sorts of evil powers, and even aliens.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilKnockoff: In "Ace Off", the villain of the episode use Ace's hair to create an evil clone of him to kidnap a dog and pin the blame on the real Ace.


Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter/ BleachedUnderpants: While the original film was [[BlackComedy far more dark]] and had lots of sexual moments, the animated series was understandably toned down for younger audiences.
