* {{Determinator}}: Discussed by Angus' grandpa: {{Superman}} is not brave, because he is invincible, and you can't be brave when you're invincible. But it's the people who are destructible and know it, and keep on going, who are truly brave.

** RealityEnsues: Bullies do what they do by seeking out what they perceive to be easy targets. Why doesn't Rick Sanford back down despite having a glass nose? Because Angus is an easy target for Rick in another form: Angus'[[SlobsVsSnobs naturally low social standing]], and the fact that Melissa, Angus' object of obsession, is Rick's girlfriend. A few broken noses is probably worth the sick kicks he's been getting with a killer hand like that.

* DawsonCasting: Literally, in the case of James Van Der Beek playing Rick Sanford. As for the other main characters, only Chris Owen (Troy) and Arianna Richards (Melissa) could pass for high school freshmen.



** {{BadassBoast}}: "I'm still here, asshole!"

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Rick rigs the ball voting so Angus will be humiliated at being matched up with Rick's beautiful girlfriend. [[spoiler: Melissa has far more in common with Angus than Rick realizes and takes a liking to him in the end.]]

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: There has never been a commercial DVD release because New Line Cinema sold the rights, and ''[[EpicFail no one knew who had them!]]'' Warner Bros. seems to have wound up with them, though, as they are making the film available as an unofficial DVD.



* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Angus favors the flannel-and-jeans "grunge" look that went out of fashion shortly after the movie debuted. The soundtrack is also full to bursting with 90's Alterna-Rock ([[CrowningMusicOfAwesome and Peter Gabriel]]).

*ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption: Once Rick realizes his SadistShow he worked so hard to arrange for prom goes well for Angus, he gets vicious and sucker punches Angus. Angus shoves Rick back into the steps of the stage, but then subverts this by stating that despite being quite capable of beating him, [[BeYourself he doesn't feel the need to compete with him at all.]]
