* ManChild: Eros. He whines, pouts, and blurts out childish phrases like "No, ''you'' hold on!" or "You see?! Your ''stupid'' minds! Stupid! '''STUPID!'''" One suspects Tanna is actually is nanny, not his second-in-command.

* NoEnding: The film ends with Eros' ship exploding, but nothing has been resolved.



* NoYou:
--> '''Jeff:''' Now you just hold on, Buster.\\
'''Eros:''' No, you hold on.



* NoYou:
--> '''Jeff:''' Now you just hold on, Buster.\\
'''Eros:''' No, you hold on.



* StayInTheKitchen: One of the reasons the aliens are so incompetent is that Eros is willing to shout down Tanna, despite the fact that she's been assigned to his ship. The source of the aliens' food is [[MST3KMantra never revealed]], so one can only really assume that she's been put there on equal terms.

The source ship, telling her that her gender is for "advancing the race", not engaging in military conflict. It comes out of nowhere, since til that point, she'd been treated like an equal. It could be an invokation of the aliens' food MarsAndVenusGenderContrast trope, but even so, it comes out of left field and is [[MST3KMantra never revealed]], so one can only really assume that she's been put there on equal terms.brought up again.

* GovernmentConspiracy: The higher-ups know that aliens are here and are keeping it secret, to the point of somehow covering up the destruction of an entire (admittedly small) town.

* WritersCannotDoMath: Apparently, the "Solar Night" would cause the detonation of everything in the universe because the Sun, the single star Sol, has its rays reach every single planet. There is no references to the idea that the work would affect other stars, only [[EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse Earth's Sun]].

** We are told that the Solaranite bomb works by causing sunlight to explode. For anyone who doesn't understand why this is so absurd, an explosion is essentially just the rapid transformation (and release) of matter into energy; sunlight is ''already'' a form of energy. It's essentially the same as having a Franchise/JamesBond film where the bad guy's evil plan is to freeze the Antarctic, and everyone treating this as a serious threat.

* FantasticRacism: The aliens view the "earth people" as violent, headstrong, and STUPID, STUPID!
