** In the background of the Town Hall scene, there's a plague of ''WesternAnimation/BoskoTheTalkInkKid'', most noticeable when Sam says "We ain't goin' nowhere!"

* CompositeCharacter: The film makes a few nods to the [[CharacterizationMarchesOn evolutions]] of certain Looney Tunes characters. Daffy in particular is a perfect blend of his [[ScrewySquirrel 1940s]] and [[SmallNameBigEgo 1950s]] incarnations, setting up his "Daffy Doc" persona or bursting into fits of "WOO HOO, HOO HOO" when not in his usual egotistical banter with Bugs.

* MythologyGag: There aren't very many direct references to the cartoon plots, but there are a few. For example, when Jordan falls into Looney Tunes land, Daffy shows up dressed as a doctor and gives him a very madcap checkup. This is a reference to ''The Daffy Doc'', which at the time went over the heads of many as that and many other Clampett Era cartoons were rarely rerun when the movie was released.

Added DiffLines:

* InflatingBodyGag: When Stan gets SquashedFlat by the Monstars, some toon nurses use an air pump to blow him up into a large balloon, then deflate him back to normal.

* AshFace: When Bupkis falls for Wile E. Coyote's explosive booby-trap during their game with the Tune Squad, his face is blackened as a result.



* BigEntrance: Appropriately so. All the Monstars and three of the Tune Squad's starting five (Bugs, Lola and Taz) get awesome entrances. Daffy attempts his own but [[ButtMonkey is met with silence]], and while Michael gets a round of applause, his entrance is a more straightforward NBA-style affair with no crowd pandering.

* BullyHunter: What finally convinces Michael Jordan to take on the Monstars is when he sees them picking on little Tweety. The Monstars themselves get a moment at the end when they realize they are now big enough to stand up to Swackhammer.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicFeather: Michael's "secret stuff" that Bugs offers to the Looney Tunes to help them play better (it's actualy sink water). It gives them such confidence, that in no time, the Monstars are winning by merely two points.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: The Nerdlucks might be small and a little bumbling, but they are ''not'' villains to be brushed off as harmless. Their powerful ray guns compensate for their small size rather well, and Bugs trickery that usually works rather well on other foes does not fool them in the slightest.

* AsHimself: Jordan and a whole bunch of other celebs and basketball players, which makes sense seeing as who Mike hangs around with all day. Bugs Bunny also receives top billing under his own name.
