* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The main lesson Bruce is set to learn. He also learns he can't give everyone what they wish for when he starts answering prayers with a unilateral "yes."
** [[InvokedTrope Invoked directly]] by Bruce's reflection after he scoffs, "If that was ''God'', then I'm ClintEastwood!"
--> '''Clint-esque reflection:''' Be careful what you wish for...[[Film/DirtyHarry punk]].

* DramaticShattering: Bruce jokes while driving after his meeting with God that "If that was ''God'', then I'm ClintEastwood!" Immediately after he says that, the rear window smashes.

Added DiffLines:

* GroinAttack: After Bruce gets fired and literally thrown out of the WKBW-TV 7 building, a security guard tosses a box of Bruce's personal effects after him. It lands directly on his groin.

* LightIsNotGood: [[spoiler:Bruce drops to his knees in pouring rain while on a road, and is suddenly bathed in white light. He has an OhCrap when he realizes it's a truck headed straight for him.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:Bruce again when he's bathed in white light on the highway and hears the horn of a truck headed right for him.]]

* DramaticShattering: Bruce jokes while driving after his meeting with God that "If that was ''God'', then I'm ClintEastwood!" Immediately after he says that, the rear window smashes.



* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Bruce yelling "We're doing it doggy style!" when he finally manages to train Sam to pee outside.



* ItsAllAboutMe: The reason God figures this particular man needs a personal confrontation.

to:

* ItsAllAboutMe: The reason God figures this particular man needs a personal confrontation. Grace even tells Bruce this during their argument.
-->'''Bruce:''' Don't make this about you.
'''Grace:''' About me?! How can I make this about me? It's about you! It's always about you!
'''Bruce:''' Perfect! Perfect! I'll have the worst day of my life, with a side order of guilt, please!


Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Bruce becomes one after his CharacterDevelopment. He's a bit of a {{Jerkass}} at the start and has a big ItsAllAboutMe attitude, but he does want his life to go right and he does love Grace. Eventually his goodness shows through in the third act, when he helps a man push his broken-down car, resigning the anchor position to give it to Evan, and offering him sincere congratulations in the process, much to Evan's surprise. And of course, his IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy moment.


Added DiffLines:

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Arguably Bruce using his powers to screw up Evan's first bulletin as anchorman alongside Susan. Bruce most likely sees Evan as such due to Evan plagiarizing part of his story earlier.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap:
** Bruce gets one when the rear window of his car shatters, and then when he sees Clint Eastwood's face in the mirror.
** The thugs that beat up Bruce have one when Bruce make a monkey come out of the leader's backside, after he falls over. Said leader has one when it happens, and then when the monkey runs after him [[Squick to re-enter him]].
** Bruce gets another one when Jack tells him people are rioting in Buffalo outside the news building.


Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Jack. When Bruce tells him at the start that he needs sweeps, Jack gives him the job of reporting live on the Maid of the Mist, something Bruce clearly appreciates ([[YankTheDogsChain at first]]).


Added DiffLines:

* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When Bruce realises [[DidntThinkThisThrough his answers to prays have caused people to start rioting]], he has an OhCrap and leaves his own anchorman position to sort it out.


Added DiffLines:

* StealthHiBye: Justified example. God pulls one on Bruce in the diner, suddenly appearing opposite him when he parts his soup, and saying, "Having fun?" Bruce is understandably freaked out.


Added DiffLines:

* YankTheDogsChain: As mentioned above, Jack gives Bruce the job of reporting live on the Maid of the Mist, which makes Bruce very happy, right up until, barely two minutes before he is due to go live, Evan is announced as the new anchorman, a position Bruce himself very much wanted, and it gets worse when Evan plagiarizes part of Bruce's story about Buffalo's largest cookie, which causes Bruce to screw up the story in his rage.

** This was intended to happen more than once during the movie. There is a cut scene were Bruce is trying and failing to help Grace fit into her bra.
