* BadassBoast: Attempted by Toothpick, and it works... at first:
-->"I don't give a damn about going to jail! You can take me to jail! Shit, lock me up! Throw away the key! [[TooMuchInformation I ain't 'fraid to fuck somebody in his ass!]]"



* CoolOldLady: Ashtray's grandmother. How else do you describe a grandmother who thinks her grandson (who just punched her across a table) "hits like a bitch," raids her other grandson's stash of weed, blasts Wu-Tang out of a lowrider, and ''cuts people's heads off with one swing of a machete?''



* TheMan: Portrayed as an ACTUAL white guy running around keeping the black man down, similar to UndercoverBrother, to the point where he uses a sniper rifle to kill one of Ashtrays and Loc's friends to keep him from going to college.

* CorruptChurch: The preacher, who urges his young, female congregation to call him whenever they get "Hot, Bothered, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Hot and Bothered]], and tells the rest not to ask why he has such a nice house and car, and just keep sending their tithes.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: Ashtray's neighborhood looks more like a very clean suburb than a ghetto. But there are a lot of gangs, people get gunned down in broad daylight, and everything from ice cream trucks to walkers are liable to get stolen at gunpoint. Played for laughs, of course.

** During sex with his girlfriend, Ashtray meets her aged, overweight mom, who tells her daughter to "hold him down and let Mama have him!"
** Later, Loc Dog and a pretty girl named [=LaQuanda=] flirt for a little while. But she has horrible breath, bad gas, and zero social skills (at one point, she picks her nose, then massages his leg with the same hand). Loc Dog rejects her and runs off, leaving [=LaQuanda=] [[InnocentlyInsensitive rather confused]].
** [[RuleofThree And THEN]], Loc meets a seemingly nice girl named Keisha. She warns him that when she gets drunk, she gets crazy. In this case, 'crazy' means she turns into an evil, sex-hungry succubus.

* MissingMom: Spoofed at the beginning. Ashtray's mother shows up in one scene to drop him off at his father's house. She then abandons him permanently after this exchange:
--> '''Ashtray''': Will I see you again?
--> '''Ashtray's mother''': Sorry, baby. [[EnforcedTrope You know there ain't no positive black females in these movies]].

* OlderThanTheyLook: A running gag is that Ashtray's father is not much older than his son, its actually implied in some scenes that Ashtray is somehow ''older'' than his father. This is exaggerated to the point where he isn't allowed at parties that Ashtray can go to because he looks like a teenager, and has a bed time. His immaturity doesn't help, either.

* ReallyGetsAround: Dashiki, the main love interest. She even points out that only reason she even gives Ashtray the time of day is because she needs a "pussy-whipped fool" to take care of her seven children.

* DecoyProtagonist: Parodied. The film opens up with a youth addressing the audience on what it's like to live in the hood...only to be shot dead, and for his killer to take over the speech. Then ''he'' gets shot. It's only once Ashtray's narration kicks in when the film establishes who the real protagonist is.
