* OddballInTheSeries: ''European Vacation'', mainly because it's the only ''Vacation'' movie to not feature Uncle Eddie and his family.

* ButtMonkey: '''Clark'''. It wouldn't be a ''Vacation'' film without at least 5 bad/embarrassing things happening to him.

* ArtisticLicenseCars [=/=] ArtisticLicenseLaw: The dealership where Clark buys the Wagon Queen Family Truckster has an on-site crusher, for some reason, and destroys a trade in that can easily be resold despite it being given to them for evaluation and having not yet purchased it (destruction of private property), ordered the wrong model and force Clark to buy it (bait and switch), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and do not install the old plates on the new car]], or even a sticker signifying an application for new plates. Clark should have called the police when they crushed his car, but also would have been pulled over for driving without license plates as soon as he left the dealership.

* TheAllegedCar: The Wagon Queen Family Truckster, a parody of the American sedans and wagons of the era. The "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" is built using the body and chassis of a 1983 Ford LTD Crown Victoria Country Squire station wagon, with numerous modifications (such as the dual quad headlights and extra fake wood paneling) to create the heavily "over-the-top," intentionally gaudy and ugly appearance. ** It even has what may be the [[UrExample earliest example]] of the "accidental airbag deployment" gag. [[OlderThanTheyThink in 1983]]! (The airbag which actually was offered on virtually zero models in 1983 [[note]]Possibly the only cars to offer an airbag was 2000 prototype 1976 Chevy Impala sedans, specially modified with the airbag and Oldsmobile dashboards[[/note]] was fashioned using a simple trash bag.)

* AluminumChristmasTrees: The family ends up knocking over Stonehenge by accidentally backing into the rocks. In truth, this wouldn't have been the first time the stones had been knocked over ([[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/f/f4/Stonehenge_1877.JPG it even happened back in the 19th Century]]), or vandalized, or even had pieces chipped off as souvenirs. This is why you're not even allowed to get close enough to touch the stones themselves anymore.
