* KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade: According to AllThereInTheManual, before leaving, the Nazi elite kill off all excess people in the Antarctic base as to leave no evidence warning of their return.

* 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.

* 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.]]

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Vivian bases the President's re-election campaign speech on Renate's pro-Nazi propaganda.
* ApocalypseHow: [[spoiler: a Planetary Societal Disruption at the very least, shown as the nuclear warheads light up the Earth in the final shot, though in the stinger it's implied that someone could go start a new civilization on Mars.]]

* 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]]

* CutLexLuthorACheck: To astounding levels. Just the Helium-3 synthesizing technology (or the material itself) would make the Fourth Reich an economic superpower '''overnight'''. Let's not forget the ability to colonize other worlds and remain totally self-sufficient for decades, their anti-gravity spacedrives and their massive transports, high-speed vehicles for moon travel (and automatic weapons that work in hard vacuum)... yeah, if they really wanted to take over the world - ''they could have just bought it.''

* ComputerEqualsTapedrive: The moon-nazis scoff at James' smartphone when he tells them what it is. The scientist interrogating him points to a room-filling beastie festooned with blinking lights and a tape drive, and says "This is not a computer. ''This'' is a computer!" He's forced to admit defeat upon doing a Google Search.

*** Alternatively, this can be explained by the fact that the German phrase said by Klaus ("Vollmond war gestern") has two meanings, a literal one of "It was the full moon yesterday" and an idiomatic one to the tune of "The full moon is a thing of the past". It is likely that the second meaning is what was meant, shortly after saying this phrase [[spoiler: the Götterdämmerung's main guns are used to blow out a huge chunk of the moon, meaning that there will be no more full moon.]]
