* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Bob and Doug quickly forget about looking for their horked clothes and end up looking for beer instead.


Added DiffLines:

* ClassicalAntiHero: The crux of the plot is about Bob and Doug getting free beer by working at the brewery. To be fair, Bob does have a higher moral ground than Doug, i.e. giving a refund to an angry man who took his kids to see ''Mutants of 2051 AD'', which kick-started the plot in the first place.

* SuperStrength: Brewmeister Smith exhibits this on multiple occasions. He lifts a fully grown man by his ear effortlessly with one hand, rips a hand rail off a scaffolding and uses it as an ImprovisedWeapon, and is able to crush a man's skull ''through'' an armored hockey helmet!
