* AerosolFlamethrower: Employed by Michelle.
* AlienAbduction: Bennett; others sometime prior to the film.
* AlienInvasion: The feeders are coming.

* AmbiguousCloneEnding: After Bennett is abducted and cloned, a clone fight ensues. Derek attempts to resolve the thing by picking one and killing it with an axe. It's not clear until the credits that [[spoiler:he picked incorrectly]].
* BadassSanta: In ''Slay Bells'', Santa defeats almost all the Feeders with a ray gun.
* ChasteHero: Derek.

* DontGoInTheWoods
* EightiesHair: Derek again.

* NerdsAreVirgins: Derek, our nerd [[ActionSurvivor protagonist]].
* NoBudget

* PublicDomainSoundtrack: On a $500 budget, this was a given.

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Implied by the ending.
* ToServeMan: The whole point.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Michelle shows up, fights her way out of a tough spot, and then runs away from the entire film, never to be mentioned again.
