* BigBad: "Our Leader," TheEmperor of Derek's people.
* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The invasion is thwarted and Earth is saved, but at the cost of Derek's life.]]



* DownerEnding:
** Derrick's HeroicSacrifice at the end of the film causes his death after the only remotely happy days of his life.
** Although near the end Derrick mentions there's a revolt brewing on the homeplanet, which would be triggered once they find out the leader's dead.



* HeroicSacrifice: Derek tricks the fleet bringing the Gargons to Earth into crashing to end the threat once and for all -- while he's at ground zero.

* DawsonCasting: ''Teenagers'' from outer space? To be fair, only ''one'' alien was supposed to be a teenager, and the title was a marketing gimmick common in the 50's to get high school students to come see your film (put "Teenage" in the title). The actor playing the "teen alien" is still too old.



* ExecutiveMeddling: The distributor picked the title ''Teenagers From Outer Space'', figuring that it would attract the widest possible audience -- the working title was ''The Boy From Out of This World''. The title change had the side-effect of retroactively making Derek and Thor {{egregious}} cases of DawsonCasting.



* HeyItsThatGuy: The spaceship captain would later become[[UsefulNotes/McDonalds Ronald McDonald in the 1970s and 1980s]].
** Before that he was Siegfried's flunky in ''GetSmart'' - "Ve don't ''torchah' here!':



* RealLifeRelative: David Love, who played Derek, was the real-life boyfriend of the director Tom Graeff (who also played Joe Rogers in the movie, using the stage name Tom Lockyear).
