* KarmicDeath: Subverted in the third film. Professor Gangreen appears to get eaten by the killer tomatoes, but he appears alive and well during the credits, none the worse for wear aside from a bandage on his nose and promising to return once more.

* KarmicDeath: ''Do not'' call Doctor Gangrene in the middle of his victory celebrations. He will dispose of you.

* ChekhovsGun: Several throwaway moments in the second film's first reel are set up in this way. Hilariously, they are fully aware that they were set up in said first reel. Even the fake film is used in the denouement!


Added DiffLines:

** ''Return'' had a completely pointless seeming FramingDevice. That was until the final reel, where it literally broke the fourth wall by calling Dr. Gangrene during the movie, causing a key distraction. And that pizza '''really''' took a long time to fall.

This would have been the end for the red menace (no, not '''that''' [[DirtyCommunists red menace]]), if it hadn't been for an episode of ''MuppetBabies'' using footage from the film to narrate a story called, "Attack of the Silly Tomatoes". It was a highly rated episode and New World Pictures inexplicably decided the world needed a sequel and offered the creators of the original 2 million dollars to film one.

** In ''Eat France'' Michael/Marc gets fed up with the reveal that his character dies halfway through the movie and simply ''walks off the set''. The director is even holding a sign that says "Plot hole this way ->"
