Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: Jordan's ineptitude at baseball is exaggerated to drive home the fact that it's not his sport.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Determinator}}: Stan is ordered by his boss to keep Jordan happy and he does so, even if it means helping him defeat the Monstars and letting him quit baseball, which quite possibly meant losing his own job.

*** Speaking of that scene, her introduction was rather...[[FreudWasRight interestingly displayed]], especially after beating Bugs. She approaches him with bedroom eyes, as one of her shoulder straps had fallen off her shoulder. Then she does a "HairFlip" with her ears, and leaves the room with an exaggerated sway of her hips. All the while a {{Sexophone}} playing in the background. Very subtle, developers.

* CanonForeigner: Oddly averted with the Nerdlucks, who haven't appeared in any Looney Tunes media since the movie even though the ending seems to suggest they are taken in by the Tunes and though they are arguably much better suited to be Looney Tunes characters than Lola is. Lola, on the other hand, is played straight for both, as she'd later appear in ''WesternAnimation/BabyLooneyTunes'', various ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' tie-in games, and ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'' (which gave her a much DenserAndWackier personality).

Added DiffLines:

* RodandReelRepurposed: Sylvester casts a fishing rod to snag the shorts of Monstar Pound. Suddenly denuded, Pound cannot continue upcourt, instead sitting in place and pulling his jersey as far down as possible. "Nice butt!"

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: If you wanna get ''technical'', this movie is this towards Michael Jordan's retirement and return to basketball. In real life, Jordan retired from basketball due to burnout from the game, which was accelerated by participating in the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics and the murder of his father, joined Minor League Baseball for a few years and returned to basketball due to a combination of not wanting to be considered a "replacement player" during the 1994-95 Major League Baseball strike and the Chicago Bulls faltering heavily. As well, while he was considered a decent player, the movie considers him a terrible player who is way out of his league.


Added DiffLines:

* BillingDisplacement: In the soundtrack, while "Space Jam" and "I Believe I Can Fly" proved to be the most memorable and longest-lasting songs of the soundtrack, they're only Tracks 3 and 4 respectively.

* DefeatMeansFriendship[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: The Nerdlucks/Monstars do this at the end after they lose the game. When the Monstars turn back into the Nerdlucks, they ask Bugs if they can stay with the Looney Tunes and try to prove to him they can be loony.

* GRatedDrug[=/=]MagicFeather: Bugs' Secret Stuff, which is really water, but the toons treat it as steroids. Daffy notes this is wrong. Using the basketball players' talent is made to look like this on the aliens' side.

* KnightOfCerebus: Even before the Nerdlucks become the Monstars, the threat they pose is urgent enough that Bugs, who normally works alone, [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness is forced to rallied up the rest of the Looney Tunes cast to work against this threat]]. After they become the Monstars, the characters have the deck completely stacked against them and are forced to seek out the aid of Michael Jordan to turn the tide.
