** Possible justified in the first film as the sewers were flooded with gas, the trucks frame hitting the metal frame of the manhole could have sparked it into exploding and engulfing the truck.

* NoEnding: The characters mention that they will flood the sewers with gas to kill the C.H.U.D.s, but this is never seen and the ultimate fate of the C.H.U.D.s is never revealed.

* EveryCarIsAPinto: In the first film, the white truck at the end explodes when the tire hits an open manhole. In the sequel, Colonel Masters makes a pick-up truck explode by merely shooting it once with a small gun.

Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: The poster for the sequel depicts three teenagers in a pick-up truck stealing a C.H.U.D. in its final stages of mutation. Three teens do steal a C.H.U.D. but not in a pick-up truck and the C.H.U.D.s looks human throughout the movie, not like the green creatures from the first film.

* ChekhovsGun: Cooper has some swords on the wall, which come in handy for Laurie later.


Added DiffLines:

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Despite being a police captain and surrounded by street cops, Bosch asks for the keys for the truck parked over the manhole cover and then runs off to move the truck alone asking no backup or support to come with him.
* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Cooper finds the pictures he took are missing, and grumbles that they were the only evidence he has. Any photographer would just make new copies from the negatives.

* ShoutOut: ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' give a memorable one when Homer explains why he hates visiting UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity:
-->'''Homer''': ...and that's when the C.H.U.D.s came after me."
** Another episode reveals that C.H.U.D.s live under Springfield, along with [[Literature/TheTimeMachine Morlocks]] and [[TheMolePeople Mole Men]].
