* AIIsACrapshoot: The computer system on board the fourth film's space base is much to be desired. It does the opposite of what it is ordered and generally isn't very helpful.

* BountyHunter: [[SpaceX Space bounty hunters]] are despatched to kill the Crites in the original film, and feature to some extent in all the sequels.

* TheCanKickedHim: In the original a Krite tries to escape via the toilet, which is then blown up.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Charlie throughout the four films is shown to be pretty idiotic, naive, awkward, goofy, and sometimes doesn't think things through. Yet he demonstrates good aim at times (blows up several Crits in the third movie), bravery (end of the second film), willpower (end of the fourth film), adaption of future tech minutes after unfreezing (figured out how to fire a laser gun but his aim was a little off), and improvising when it counts (1st film).
* DarkerAndEdgier: The first two had their grim moments but weren't so bad, there were no super terrifying deaths, the second was a bit darker with Lee's death. The third one was a bit lighter once we got past the jerk ass landlord's very gory death. The fourth is the darkest with the highest amount of the cast dying and [[spoiler: Ug becoming an asshole and getting killed by Charlie.]]

* ToiletTeleportation: Subverted when one of the Crites attempts to escape from the bounty hunters via the toilet bowl. It's a bit too fat to fit, and can't squeeze down the hole before one of the hunters blows it (and the toilet itself) away.

* CaliforniaDoubling: The series both subverted this trope ''and'' played it straight: The first film was shot in Kansas, where the story takes place. However, while ''Critters 2'' also takes place in the same area, it was shot near Los Angeles.
