* FrenchMaid: Well, maids in bikinis anyway. There are a couple of girls in revealing clothing rather unenthusiastically dusting the Treble's (frat?) house while they lounge in the hot tub.

* ThoseTwoGuys:
** Ashley and Jessica. They even have an [[Series/TheWestWing Ed and Larry]] moment in the sequel, when Beca admits she doesn't know which of them is which, and they both shout "I'm Jessica!"
** The commentators, John and Gail.

Added DiffLines:

* AllYourPowersCombined: The Bellas' GrandFinale number combines their numerous and varied talents into one showstopper of a set: Beca's musical mixing talents, Cynthia-Rose's rapping, Lily's beatboxing, Chloe's [[spoiler: DisabilitySuperpower]], and Stacey's ballet skills, to name a few.
** Reprised in their performance at the world championship in the sequel, this time with Emily's original songs thrown into the mix.

* FridgeBrilliance: 'Bellas' means 'pretty girls' in Italian, probably intentional InUniverse, so Aubrey has reason to want "bikini-ready" girls, and Howie (of Sigma Beta Theta) would be "expecting the hot Bellas".

* ShesGotLegs: Stacy frequently shows her nice pair by constantly wearing [[WhoWearsShortShorts short-shorts]]. The TrainingMontage shows that Aubrey has a nice pair as well. Fortunately, the movie poster (see the page image) was generous and displayed them front-and-center.

* TwoFirstNames: Stacy Conrad and Cynthia-Rose. Also as weird as it sounds, Bumper Allen. Um, Beca Mitchell.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseMusic: The two [=ICCA=] commentators imply that no all-female group has ever won the National Championship. Actually, the ''very first year they were held'', the [[http://loreleis.com/ UNC-Chapel Hill Loreleis]] won them, and in '07 [[https://pam.byu.edu/group/noteworthy/ BYU Noteworthy]] won. Those are the only two, though.

* TheUnreveal: Parodied. During the 'confessions' scene, Cynthia Rose is expected to come out as a lesbian, only to admit to having a gambling problem...which she developed after she broke up with her girlfriend.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: though the first film does not advertise itself as such, it's essentially a dramatization of the journey of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deke_Sharon Deke Sharon]], an alumni of the Tufts Beelzebubs who is today credited as the father of modern ''a cappella''. Like Beca, he joined a group with a lot of set traditions and some outdated repertoire (which was ''every'' group back then); like Beca, he injected new life into the group by paying attention to Top 40 and delivering the sort of music that their college audiences wanted to hear; like Beca, he added one more twist--vocal percussion his case, the power of mash-ups in hers. Of course, there was no [=ICCAs=] in Deke's time (he co-founded them in TheNineties); and, where the Bellas were playing catch-up with their competitors, he was breaking new ground.



*** No, FreezeFrameBonus - the short clip of the video shows everything.

* NewParentNomenclatureProblem: While we never see Becca and her stepmother interact, Becca is obviously resentful since she calls her "the step-monster."

Added DiffLines:

* NoAntagonist: the first film has achieved this state by its third act. At the beginning you have ControlFreak Aubrey, and to a lesser extent GloryHound Bumper, but by the time we hit Nationals, one's changed her tune and the other has been unceremoniously written out of the film. As a result, [=ICCA=] Nationals is a friendly competition between {{Worthy Opponent}}s.


Added DiffLines:

* PutOnABus: Bumper, just before Nationals, in the first movie. He gets a gig singing for John Mayer and is never heard from again.
