* CosmopolitanCouncil: In the beginning of the movie. It includes Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran, Ugandan President Idi Amin, PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, Col. Muammar Gaddafi of Libya, and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, among others. As of October 2011, all of these people are either dead or no longer in power. That's right, it took 23 years for the opening sequence of ''The Naked Gun'' to be completely outdated.

* AccidentalHero: Due to Frank's [[TheKlutz klutzy tendencies]], he often foils crimes completely by accident and [[CaptainOblivious without being aware of what's going on]]. In the second film, it's noted that he's killed one thousand drug dealers, the last three of whom he accidentally backed over with his car.

* LameComeback: Jane is so mad with Frank she calls him a "[[ShapedLikeItself white Anglo male]]!" Jane's subplot is a massive spoof of feminist tropes (and one big ShoutOut to ''Film/ThelmaAndLouise'', so such insult is only to be expected.
