Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsSkill: Reed's skills as [[spoiler:a magician come into play in his epilogue, where he is a professional illusionist.]]


Added DiffLines:

* DroneOfDread: The held low note and orchestral bell that dominate Dirk and Rollergirl's [[TwoLinesNoWaiting separate misadventures]] in the 80s.


Added DiffLines:

* GagPenis: Played for both drama and comedy. Eddie Adams' huge member gets him a job as porn star Dirk Diggler. Each time he pulls it out, people stare in awe. [[spoiler: The final shot of the film concludes with Dirk pulling it out in front of the mirror. The actual penis was a prosthetic that Mark Wahlberg wore for the shot.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SoundtrackDissonance: A few scenes use this trope to great effect.
** Dirk and Rollergirl's impromptu first time having sex is scored by Rollergirl's choice of song: Melanie's "Brand New Key".
** The tense Drug Heist scene is scored by Night Ranger's "Sister Christian", Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl", and Nena's "99 Luftballons". This isn't helped by the young Chinese boy in the room, who is lighting and throwing firecrackers around.


Added DiffLines:

* StealthPun: Buck's audio store commercial ends with him asking customers to "come insude us."


Added DiffLines:

* TitleCard: "80s" and "Long Way Down (One Last Thing)" are the two title cards, which appear roughly 1.5 and 2 hours into the film, respectively.


Added DiffLines:

* TwoLinesNoWaiting: In the 80s, Jack's attempt to film a random person on the street having sex with Rollergirl in the back seat of a limo are intercut with Dirk being asked to masturbate for another man's entertainment in a pickup truck. It's revealed at the end of both scenes that they're in the same place, with the pickup trucks joining the same road that the limo is driving down.

* [[IKnowKarate I Know Fucking Karate]]: He's an actor in action-themed porn movies. ''Of course'' Dirk Diggler knows karate. His BruceLee posters tip off the viewer.

* BadBadActing: All the characters in their movie-within-a-movie porn performances, Amber Waves' affectless "that is a giant cock" being a good example. The cast and writers studied actual adult films from the 1970s to ensure the dialogue was appropriately cheesy and the acting suitably flat.

* AffablyEvil: The Colonel. At first he's a friendly, charming older Gentleman who happens to like his girls (very) young. It's not till later that we really see what a horrible human being he really is.

* DoingItForTheArt: In-universe, this is what Horner wants to do... or at least get people to stay in their seats after they've finished what they came for. ([[{{Archer}} Phrasing!]])
