* ColorCodedCharacters: The kids' clothes are all a different color; red for Bender, blue for Andy, pink for Claire, green for Brian, and black for Allison. Bender's color is clearer when he removes his jacket, Andy's only gets ''bluer'' when he takes off his, and Allison's changes to white after Claire gives her her makeover.

* OrphanedPunchline: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] with Bender's "naked lady" joke. (It doesn't have a punchline, [[ThrowItIn Judd Nelson ad-libbed it]]).

Added DiffLines:

* AllStereotypeCast: Deconstructed. Each of the students in detention fulfills a high school stereotype of TheEighties: specifically, jocks, brainiacs, princesses, criminals, and basket cases -- and yet is about showing how they're much more than those stereotypes.

* BookDumb: Bender is unusually articulate and comes off as quite intelligent, despite his school trouble.

* BookDumb: Downplayed. Bender is unusually articulate and comes off as quite intelligent, despite his school trouble.



* DeadpanSnarker: Bender, who also is a superb SilentSnarker. The ''look'' he gives Brian when he sticks a pen up his nose is pretty priceless. Andy and Brian develop some snarkiness as well but not nearly to the degree of Bender.

** Allison probably dominates the [[SilentSnarker nonverbal territory]] of this, though she's no slouch when she actually speaks.
** Carl, the school's janitor, is enough of one to shut ''Bender'' up.

Added DiffLines:

* GreaterScopeVillain: Though Vernon is the BigBad of the film, it's the parents of the kids that either directly or indirectly drove them to landing in detention in the first place.

** Claire, the AlphaBitch, is a Type A StepfordSmiler who feels that her life is empty, and that her parents only use her as a tool in their endless arguments. And she's hardly the "queen bee" in fact, it's peer pressure that essentially molded her into the snobbish bitch that she is, and she feels miserably forced into it.

** This is Allison's most defining feature, although she never admits to it. Her parents ignore her, so much her behavior seems as if it's both meant to ward people off and draw as much attention as possible to herself. It becomes very apparently midway through the movie, when she starts butting into conversations and all but demanding that people listen to what she has to say.

** This is Allison's most defining feature, although she Invoked with Allison, who never admits to it. Her specifically states as such, but explains at one point that her parents ignore her, so much making her behavior seems as if it's both meant to ward attention-seeking behaviour increasingly understandable when she's basically locked in for the morning with people off and draw as much attention as possible who ''have'' to herself. It becomes very apparently midway through the movie, when keep her company. At one point, she starts butting into conversations and all but demanding actively reveals that people listen to what she has didn't even have to say.come in to detention - she simply ''chose'' to. The principal never even questions this. This, along with her designation as the 'basket case' of the group, suggests something of a darker slant on the trope and her loneliness.
