* {{Troperiffic}}: It's all there: MysteriousWaif, SissyVillain glowing with cartoon villainy, [[TestosteronePoisoning Ultra-manly man]] ActionHero played by BruceWillis, RubberForeheadAliens, [[FlyingCar hovercar]] [[ChaseScene chases]], WaifFu, [[EldritchAbomination the Ultimate Evil]], and the world being saved through ThePowerOfLove.[[note]]well, WordOfGod says sex, but close enough[[/note]] This movie is a lovingly prepared four-course meal of cheesy sci-fi tropes. And it makes sense to know Luc Besson started to write as a teenager reading lots of sci-fi comics.

* DulcineaEffect: Korben is moved enough by the shaky pleading of the unintelligible redhead that just fell through the roof of his cab to get into a high-speed chase with the police. He's at least GenreSavvy enough to realize that he's getting into far more trouble than he can really afford.

* UnknownRival: Corben and Zorg never meet or even know about each other and that they're competing for the same goal. Corben doesn't know Zorg is behind the Mangalores' activities or that he's working for the Mr. Shadow. For that matter, Corben knows nothing of Mr. Shadow -- only that it's an encroaching threat. Likewise Zorg has no idea that Corben stopped the Mangalores on the cruise ship or that he's helping Leeloo. Zorg doesn't even know who Leeloo is when he tries to kill her, not even knowing that if he had succeeded, he would have no need for the stones. Only Cornelius has met Zorg and then only briefly on screen.
