* CreatorInJoke: The working titles for Creator/StevenSpielberg's movies ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' and ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial'' were "Watch the Skies" and "A Boy's Life" respectively. Both were referenced as a CreatorInJoke in ''Film/{{Gremlins}}'' (which Spielberg produced), as two movies reportedly showing in the town theater when Billy walks past it. Also, Rockin' Ricky Rialto's billboard is in the style of Indiana Jones from ''RaidersOfTheLostArk''.

** Though he ''does'' acknowledge that Billy has the potential to be a worthy caretaker of Gizmo someday. He just screwed up too badly for that day to be today.
** This may have had more to do with the father stealing the mogwai and the family not treating it as seriously as it deserved.
** Not that traditional Chinese culture has been all that good for Nature's endangered species, mind you. Bear gall and ground-up tiger claws for your impotency, anyone?

* BodyHorror: The death of Stripe in the first movie is a particularly grotesque example.
** This can lead to a bit of Fridge Horror if you consider that this is the first time we see what sunlight does to the gremlins, but it also applies to the mogwai; what happens to Stripe could potentially happen to cute, cuddly Gizmo....
** Not to mention the intense pain caused by reproduction via water.

** The Gremlin choking Billy's mom, just before Billy chops his head off. "Uh-oh."
** Really, one after another after another as soon as the Gremlins hatch:
*** Billy when he gets the phone call from Mr. Hanson saying that "it just hatched."
*** Again when he finds Mr. Hanson's dead body.
*** Billy's mom when she hears the Gremlins upstairs, then goes up to Billy's room and sees the hatched cocoons.
*** Billy calling his mom to warn her that "they've hatched, get out of the house!"
*** Billy ''and'' his mom as the phone call gets cut off, then "Do You Hear What I Hear" starts playing downstairs.
*** Billy running out of the high school, trying to make it home.
*** Finally, Billy's Mom when she sees the Gremlin eating one of her gingerbread men.
