** "What's that screaming? (pensively) Dramatic situations often start with screaming." This lamp needed a shade, because what our heroine finds is some mooks tormenting Pygar the angel: they've got nothing to scream about, and Pygar is too angelically dignified to scream. So it looks like nobody screamed, it really was just a dramatic device.

* DownTheRabbitHole: ''Barbarella'' feels a lot like a sexy sci-fi version of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' considering it involves a naive young woman going on an adventure in a nonsensical (to her) realm full of strange sights and people. One can also draw parallels between the Tweedledee twins and Stomoxys and Glossina, and more obviously the Queen of Hearts and the Black Queen.

* OneWorldOrder: Dianthus is the President of Earth and the Rotating Premier of the Solar System (whatever that means).



* OverlyLongName: A RunningGag [[OverlyLongGag involving]] a secret password in Dildano and Barbarella's rebellion operation, involving the name of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Llanfairpwllgwyngyll a certain town in Wales.]]



* PerfectPacifistPeople: In Barbarella's time, the entire known universe will have been pacified for centuries and weapons are things seen only in museums. Barbarella and the president simply can't understand why anyone would want to invent a weapon.

* CoversAlwaysLie: There are lots of things wrong with that poster up there. No moons are visible from Lythion in the movie, Barbarella never wears that particular outfit, that rocket-like spaceship is nowhere to be seen, ''Pygar is missing his wings'' and the Black Guards are '''black''', not that gold-ish color.
