* IdiotBall: [[spoiler: JB agrees to put KG up as a bet for their rock-off with the devil...despite the Devil having said that he literally CANNOT decline a rock-off challenge.]]
** Averted: [[spoiler: In order to send Satan back to hell from whence he came. Jables HAD to strike a deal with him of some sort. Souls are probably the only thing The Devil would substantially benefit from (thus making it a deal), and he was about to take both their souls anyway if they lost. Plus it's quite likely that Satan, being who he is, wouldn't have let an opportunity like this slide by without specifically defining a Rock-Off as having some sort of stakes involved.]]

* BrokenAesop: The film starts off with Jables being ranted at by his fundamentalist Christian dad, who claims that rock and roll is evil and the work of Satan, to which JB says it's "not the Devil's work, it's magical and rad". The rest of the movie is spent searching for a pick that makes you an awesome rock star through the power of the Devil.
** There's even a line in the credits song that states that rock techniques were developed in hell.

* MushroomSamba: When Jables gets lost out in the woods, he survives by eating unidentified mushrooms, which results in this trope.

* MythologyGag: [[spoiler:The D are met by Satan and have to play a song to save their lives (and the world).]] After surviving, they are unable to remember the kickass tune they played, so they try to rewrite it from scratch. Mayhaps a ''Tribute'' to that song?

The film has two main parts to the plot. The first part deals mainly with the formation of the band. In the beginning, Jables, a young rocker living in an oppressive, religious household, prays to a poster of RonnieJamesDio, and is given a vision of his future. He is bidden to [[TheRunaway run away]] from home to California, where he is to meet [[HeterosexualLifePartners his best friend]] and [[TheLancer band partner.]] [[TravelMontage After traveling far,]] he meets this man, Kage, who turns out to be something of a bum wanna-be. Kage gives him extensive rock "training."

* MirrorsReflectEverything: How Satan is ultimately defeated.


Added DiffLines:

* MortonsFork: The stakes of the rock-off end up being this for Satan. If he loses, he must go back to Hell (and also pay Tenacious D's rent). If he wins, he takes Kage back to Hell as a sex slave. ''Either way he has to go back to Hell''.


Added DiffLines:

* ShockAndAwe: Satan's favoured method of attack in this movie, instead of the fire-based moves one would normally expect from him. He still seems to come from FireAndBrimstoneHell, though.

Added DiffLines:

* SmallNameBigEgo: In "History", the guys boast about being a godlike rock band that has performed all sorts of outrageous feats. The audience reaction is lukewarm at best.

* ItWasWithYouAllAlong: Parodied. When the guys break the POD before going on stage and start crying, the open mic host warmly reassures them that [[MagicFeather they don't need a magic guitar pick to channel the Devil in their music]], then gives an inspiring, heartfelt speech about how Satan lives within "all of our hearts", ever tempting us to debauchery and defiance. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop Jables and Kage find this comforting]].

to:

* IronicEcho: When Jables sees a hot girl walk past Kage's apartment, Kage tells him to be on top of his sexual game because there'll be ten times hotter girls backstage when they perform. Later, when Kage is DistractedByTheSexy at the diner, Jables tells him to forget the sorority girls because there'll be ten times hotter girls backstage when they win album of the year.
