* 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.]]

* 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.]]

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Most of the cast of the movie. J.D. loves his dad in their own twisted way and loves his mother in the genuine way. Kurt Kelly's father and one of the dead Jock's sister visit him at the funeral. The former saying the MemeticMutation, while the latter offended by Veronica and J.D.'s joke said in the funeral. While Veronica is not so much evil, but mainly an {{Antihero}}, she has parents that genuinely love her. The mother especially when she sees, Veronica [[spoiler: fake]] hang herself.

* AlmightyJanitor: Veronica, in a sense, given that she's a teenager who saved her entire school from J.D.'s plans to blow it (and its students and faculty) up as opposed to someone of authority doing so. Then again, given the AdultsAreUseless theme of the movie...
