** The assault on Earth begins on 5:45 a.m., not unlike the German invasion of Poland that started WorldWarTwo.

* WideEyedIdealist: Renate really believes that National Socialism is all about bringing peace, cooperation, and unity. She was never told about the real outcome of WorldWarTwo, which [[spoiler: led to her HeelRealization when she discovered the truth.]]

* ZeeRust: Used with the Nazis, whose technology doesn't seem much further than the mid 1940's, such as Dr. Richter's room-sized computer.

Meanwhile on Earth, things have been going about as normally as you'd expect. After the apparent defeat of the Third Reich, there was the UsefulNotes/ColdWar, the SpaceRace, various social upheavals, unpopular wars, technological revolutions, and economic rollercoasters. Now the [[{{Eagleland}} United States]] is set to re-elect a SarahPalin expy to a second term as President. In a publicity stunt, she decides to send a black man to the dark side of the Moon.

* ScreenShake: In the USS ''George W. Bush'', when fired upon, the entire ship shakes in a way reminiscent of [[Franchise/StarTrek another show.]] Not surprising, given the special effect studio commissioned for the film previously worked on ''WebOriginal/StarWreck''.

* NonNaziSwastika: There is quite a bit of fire directed against the India representative for wearing one of these once the other politicians get a shot of an enemy capital ship. He has to explain that it was a good luck symbol before the Nazis twisted and corrupted its meaning.

* OnceMoreWithClarity: In-universe: Renate teaches her students on the Moon that ''TheGreatDictator'' is a [[OrwellianEditor ten minute short film]] showing how UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler [[WideEyedIdealist wished for peace and unity]] [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans across the globe]]. After Renate arrives on Earth, she tries to convince Washington of Hitler's "message" by taking him to a theatre playing the movie. Too bad Earth's copy of the film [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone isn't edited... (and is 124 minutes long)]]

* PointDefenseless: Played straight with the Nazis, but averted with the USS ''George W. Bush''. Until they start to overwhelm it with numbers, the Nazis can't even land a hit.

* SecretWeapon: In violation of the UN treaties, every major nation turns out to have one or several secret militarized spaceships, apart from Finland. Not only have these nations secretly planted weapons systems on their spacecraft capable of shooting down Nazi flying saucers and space zeppelins, they also managed to cram enough fuel into those tiny spaceframes to send them all the way to the Moon, "just in case."

* ShownTheirWork: The Moon motorcycle runs on biodiesel distilled from the waste of a hydroponic greenhouse, and has a separate oxygen tank to allow it work in the vacuum. The [[AscendedFanon official explanation]] is the motorcycle engine is converted to run on hydrogen peroxide monopropellant. Peroxide is introduced into the cylinder via a catalytic nozzle, which turns liquid peroxide into superheated steam and replaces the combustion in power stroke. Peroxide is run through hollow cylinder liners which act as regenerative coolant jackets. Also they wear their trenchcoats over pressurized suits.

* TakeAThirdOption: Adler's original mission to Earth was to simply get some cellphones to complete the nazi's superweapon. However, he gets a bit sidetracked due largely to Renate convincing the US president to try for a more peaceful resolution, and probably would have just went along with it were it not for the untimely arrival of the Führer accusing him of treason and forcing his hand.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Vivian bases the President's re-election campaign speech on Renate's pro-Nazi propaganda.

* BitingTheHandHumor: The film pokes fun at many countries, including Finland (the only country who didn't arm their ships) and Australia (whom the President was considering arbitrarily bombing). Two of the main sponsors of the film are from Finland and Australia, and one of the directors is himself Finnish. [[spoiler: the fact that Finland fought a common enemy as the Nazis during WWII definitely pays no favours to the sponsors, or at least ignores proper rules of decorum]]
* BlackComedy [[spoiler: whether it's a black man who has been injected to look white or a woman commander blithely giving the order to launch nukes despite the presence of women and children (all in the name of revenge over a man), this film has plenty of examples of "off-colour" humour]]
