* PaedoHunt: Played with in reference to Ken Loney. Sydney muses that everyone always suspected him, and they never left him alone with their kids.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Possibly. Given the way the virus spreads, Sydney theorizes that they might have propagated it [[spoiler:through repeated mention of Honey the missing cat. Grant initially thinks she's off her rocker, but later it's suggested she might be right.]]

* [[spoiler:DownerEnding:]] It's a zombie film, what would you expect? [[spoiler:Though Grant and Sydney have found a (theoretical) way to cure the infection, the town gets bombed anyway. It doesn't stop the spread, though; the closing credits are a voice-over montage of other radio stations and callers reporting the beginnings of the same strange events in Pontypool. The last lines we hear are the BBC anchor repeating "Pontypool, Pontypool", sounding rather bewildered.]]

* [[spoiler:DoubleSpeak]]: Mendez comes up with this method of evading infection. Mazzy takes it a step further by [[spoiler:substituting "kill" for "kiss"]], and so on.

* BlackComedy: A few bits, but Mendez, immediately after [[spoiler:Laurel-Ann]] dies, is in fine form.

* ReassignedtoAntarctica: Even though its a brief one-way conversation, it's pretty clear that whatever Mazzy did to get himself fired from his previous job, it tainted his prospects so badly that the middle-of-nowhere job of Pontypool was pretty much the only place he could get work.
