* KillerRabbit: The Lubb-Lubbs, which resemble cute, smiling mushroom like beings. Their actual mouths are huge and sharklike, filled with ''nasty pointy teeth''.
** Also filled with another mouth that is also filled with ''nasty pointy teeth''.
*** They do taste good - at least to the natives - ''with heavy grease''. [[{{Squick}} Yum!]]

* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: The laser weapons are especially jarring since the planet's denizens themselves know and acknowledge that they are all idiots.

* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: The laser weapons are especially jarring since the planet's denizens themselves know and acknowledge that they are all idiots. On the other hand, they're so inaccurate that it's openly acknowledged in-universe that throwing a rock is more dangerous.

* LikeADuckTakesToWater: Just like Literature/JohnCarterOfMars was able to use his comparatively HeavyWorlder physique to become a Martian Warlord, Dick Nelson is able to take the entire planet of Spengo by storm despite being your average suburbanite because he's the only person on the planet besides his wife who is ''not'' an idiot.

* PoorMansSubstitute: Inverted. Tod was originally going to be named "Jon Lovitz" because the character was so heavily based on the actor, but the director and producer thought there was no way they could hire him. Lovitz ended up taking the part and loved the Tod-based set pieces so much he said he wanted to take them home and set them up around his pool.
