* SeeYouinHell: Claire's words more or less SeeYouInHell: As quoted a couple of times on this page already, Claire says this almost verbatim to the monster as she tries to shoot it.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Knowing what we know now about Venus, a flamethrower is nothing compared to what the alien dealt with on its own planet.

* NonindicativeName: "It Duped A Bitter Idiot, Conquered Something Like Five People, And Knocked Out The Power For A While." must have been a bit unwieldy.

* EvilIsBigger: The creature was originally conceived as [[{{Heavyworlder}} short and squat, due to the harsh gravity of its native planet]]. Actress Beverly Garland was unimpressed by the vertically-challenged villain -- approaching it within hearing of director Roger Corman she cried "So, you plan to take over the world do you? Take that!" and kicked it in the head. Corman therefore told the prop guy to do something to make it bigger and scarier. Well, it's ''bigger'', at least.

* ActionGirl: Beverly Garland. Corman was a filmmaker who did not believe in the NeutralFemale - he had female protagonists who were tough, intelligent and resourceful. A good example is when Beverly Garland's character Claire ''grabs a rifle'' after telling the BigBad she's going to slaughter it when her idiot husband is mesmerized by the alien once too often, and gives it a memorable TheReasonYouSuckSpeech, then growls: "You think you're gonna make a slave of the world... [[PrecisionFStrike I'll see you in Hell first!]]" Keep in mind, Garland was delivering this to a walking ''carrot'' and made it ''believable''.
