* JumpedTheShark : In the third film Stan Gable is a policeman and is then appointed Dean of Students. As a two-time All-American college quarterback it is inconceivable that he would not have been drafted by an NFL team.

* ShutUpHannibal: At the end of the 2nd film, Roger tells Lewis [[HannibalLecture that he'll always be a pathetic loser just for being a nerd and that there's nothing he can say or do about it]]. Lewis admits he's only half right. There's nothing he can say about it, but there is something he can DO about it. Cue Lewis [[TalkToTheFist punching the arrogant asshole into the pool]].

Not to be discouraged, the nerds decide to [[StartMyOwn start their own frat]], and through an oversight are given permission to set up a branch of the normally all-black fraternity Lambda Lambda Lambda. But all is not well; the existing frats, not to mention the resident jocks, don't appreciate nerds horning in on their territory, and so begins a war of attrition that involves vandalism, nude photos, the liberal application of 'liquid heat' to jockstraps, and various other [[HijinksEnsue wacky hijinks]].

* ThePeepingTom: The Lambdas in ''RevengeOfTheNerds'' take this trope to an extreme by installing surveillance cameras in all the bedrooms and showers of the sorority house. They literally stay awake all night, just watching women sleep.
