Not to be confused with ''Film/TheStarfighters''. That movie really sucked.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Centauri does (due to having spent a significant amount of time on Earth), but the Rylosians don't--Alex has to wait a bit until they give him a translator.

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Centauri does (due does, due to having spent a significant amount of time on Earth), already being familiar with Earth from producing and distributing the ''Starfighter'' video games, but the Rylosians don't--Alex and other aliens don't. Alex has to wait a bit until they give him a translator.translator. Afterwards, aliens '''are''' heard speaking English even when Alex isn't around, but this is likely TranslationConvention.

* BiggerBad: Xur has nothing much going for him; his Ko-Dan armada is actually on loan from the Ko-Dan emperor.

* BigBadWannabee: Xur ''thinks'' he's in charge of the Ko-Dan armada, who are actually only tolerating his guts until they get the information they need from him. Then they get rid of him.

* SeriousBusiness: Getting a high score in a video game is so important that it gets the entire trailer park's attention. Given Alex' complaints about how boring his hometown is, it may well be the most exciting thing around.

* SeriousBusiness: Getting a high score in a video game is so important that it gets the entire trailer park's attention. Given Alex' complaints about how boring his hometown is, it may well be the most exciting thing around. Also, Alex seems to be well-known and well-liked (at least among the older residents), so it may have been less about breaking the record, and more about ''Alex'' breaking the record.

* TwoDSpace: The at-the-time brand new CGI effects allowed for a rare aversion of this trope; the battles are fought in a very noticeable 3D environment. The Gunstar chair that Alex sits in allows for full 360 degree movement, including flipping him upside down at one point.
