* CreatorCameo - Quentin Tarantino appears in both movies (he technically didn't direct ''Planet Terror'', but Robert Rodriguez has stated he was a large part of the creative process). Rodriguez also appears as one of the terrorists selling the biochemicals at the beginning.

* MsFanservice - Pretty much every female character.
* OneSteveLimit - Averted; both movies feature major characters named Abby.
* PaintingTheMedium - The films go to great lengths to give that authentic 1970s grindhouse feel, such as fake trailers, grainy footage, missing reels, jumping scenes, burned film, terrible synthesized music, an ad for a Tex-Mex restaurant which is supposedly next door to the theater you are watching the movie in, etc.
** In one scene of ''Planet Terror'', a large crane is clearly visible. Rodriguez considered removing it by computer, but then decided that leaving it visible would be much more grindhouse.

* TooDumbToLive: The girls in the first half of ''Death Proof''. They drink a ridiculous amount of alcohol, and then spend an hour or more smoking weed, before driving down the road in the middle of the night, wearing no seat belts and paying more attention to the radio than the road. [[spoiler:It's a miracle they didn't die before Mike even got to them.]]
** Granted it was during a zombie epidemic, but [[spoiler:giving your young son a fully loaded gun without even teaching him how to use it seems pretty stupid. And it ends up as well as you would expect.]]

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Stuntman Mike's first group of victims.

to:

* DevelopingDoomedCharacters: Stuntman Mike's ''Death Proof'' is a study in this, spending the ''entire first half of the film'' with a group of victims.women who die with absolutely zero impact on the plot. While some find this tedious, it forces the audience to throw out their expectations as to which characters are important and will survive, creating genuine tension in the final car chase.

In Rodriguez's movie, ''Film/PlanetTerror'', a military transaction goes awry and an experimental poison gas is released on a small town in rural Texas, turning the unsuspecting civilians into bloodthirsty zombies. The only people who can stop them are a Go-Go-Dancer with a gun for a leg, her expert gunman ex-boyfriend, a pair of crazy babysitter twins, a [[HeroicBSOD shellshocked]] doctor, a {{Jerkass}} cop, a crusty sheriff, a scientist obsessed with balls, and many other trailer-park freaks from deep in the Heart of Texas.

** RoseMcGowan's dance scene at the beginning of ''Planet Terror'' would just be FanService, except that she and Rodriguez became a couple shortly after this movie came out.

In ''Film/DeathProof'', a stuntman uses his small fame to pick up girls, then kills them with his car. Little does he realize that a few of his second bunch of victims are stunt''women''... and among them is Creator/ZoeBell (playing herself), who also doubled for Creator/UmaThurman in ''Film/KillBill'' in real life. Boy, is Stuntman Mike in for a world of hurt...
