* ShootTheTelevision: J.D. shoots the television set in his living room when he and Veronica are "celebrating" the fake suicides they orchestrated. This is the moment when Veronica realizes that J.D. is simply AxCrazy and rejects him.

--> Veronica (voice-over) : Suicide gave Heather depth, Kurt a soul, Ram a brain.



* IronicEcho: Subtly. After [[spoiler:killing Kurt and Ram]], Veronica [[SelfHarm burns herself]], and J.D. uses the burn to light his cigarette. At the end, [[spoiler:Veronica uses the explosion that kills J.D. to light ''her'' cigarette.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TotallyRadical : ZigZagged While some of the dialogue has a definite TheEighties feel, the screenwriter made up his own slang terms (see MemeticMutation), which still doesn't feel dated over a quarter-century after the film's release.

* BlondesAreEvil: There are two bad blondes (one of which is eventually subverted) and a bad brunette...and a heroine, who, while not actually ''[[UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist good]]'', is brunette.

* AxesAtSchool: J.D. brings a revolver (loaded with blanks) to school and "shoots" two kids in the cafeteria. It gets PlayedForLaughs. Yeah... [[FunnyAneurysmMoment kind of says something about when the film was made]]. Of course, it also says something about [[BlackComedy its genre]]. [[UnbuiltTrope It also portrayed this trope to its logical conclusion years before]] UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} popularized it.

* DemolitionsExpert: Played with with Bud Dean. He expresses a bit too much glee at inventing new ways to blow up major buildings and outright delights at destroying places that had special memories to people, implying a MadBomber mindset, but he channels his urges into a lucrative demolition business. He accidentally killed his wife when she walked into one of the buildings to kill herself, but he doesn't incidate any remorse. [[spoiler:J.D. steals some of his father's bombs to blow up his school.]]
