* {{I Love the Dead}}: It is strongly implied that Otis is a necrophiliac.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: A ton of them: Otis B. Driftwood, Captain Spaulding, Billy Ray Snapper, John Quincey Wydell. '''Wolf J. Flywheel''' deserves a fucking award.



** Also [[spoiler: [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Sherriff Wydell]]]] by the end of the movie.



** Insulting clowns in front of Captain Spaulding isn't a particularly smart idea either, especially when you consider the opening scene of the first movie.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Badass}}: Averted with the Firefly family. While they are murderous psychos who try to come off as tough it is only against people who cannot really fight back. Otis is nearly overpowered and killed by Adam and Roy, two slubs he has bullied only when behind a gun. The entire family is captured with little fuss or fight by Sheriff Wydell and the Unholy Two.

* BashBrothers: The Unholy Two are so badass that they take on the Firefly clan and win!

** Later played straight when [[spoiler: Tiny saves Baby from Wydell]].



* ForTheEvulz: Though to a slightly lesser extent than the first film.



* ItRunsInTheFamily: The Fireflys

* ItRunsInTheFamily: The FireflysFireflies



* LargeHam: A lot of characters, but especially the Fireflys.
* LaserGuidedKarma: After spending most of the movie (and untold years before that) torturing, raping and killing, the three remaining Fireflys are captured, tortured and beaten by Sheriff Wydell. [[spoiler: After escaping thanks to Tiny, they don't get very far because of a roadblock of pissed off cops with guns. They go out fighting, but still go out.]]

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Wydell's torture of the Fireflys. Although he embraces HeWhoFightsMonsters, the people he was horrifically abusing and butchering had seventy-five bodies (minimum) worth of victims, ranging from torture and rape to horrific mutilation. The fact that they actively brag about their kills in detail doesn't help their situation.
