* OneManArmy: Andrew turns out to be ''surprisingly'' {{Badass}}, felling waves of Blanks at one point without stopping for breath. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since he plays rugby, or at least used to.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Many real pubs are used as stand-ins for the film's fictional ones, with the World's End itself portrayed by [[http://www.crowncarveries.co.uk/thegardenersarmsletchworth/ the Gardener's Arms in Letchworth]]. (However, other "pubs" in the film are actually a cinema, a railway station and a Thai restaurant, among others.)
** Also, the "UK's First Roundabout" in the film really is that, in Letchworth.

Added DiffLines:

* RecognitionFailure: Many of the townsfolk don't seem to recognise the group, much to the dismay of Gary, and in Shane Hawnkin's case also to Peter. [[spoiler: Fortunately for Gary it's only because all of them have been replaced.]]

** Shortly after, Gary suggest they go to the Trusty Servant, implying he wants to continue the pub crawl. The other ask if he's fucking kidding, he answers "Oh yeah. It's the Good Companions, I always mix those up.".

* TwoWordsICantCount: After being asked how his mother's funeral was, Gary answers: "It's difficult to put into words. But if I had to choose three, I would say, 'Really, really sad.' Oh, no, that's two, isn't it? How about, 'Really, very sad'?"

* ClarkesThirdLaw/SufficientlyAdvancedAlien: The Blanks/The Network have technology beyond the scope of modern humanity, capable of interstellar travel and creating near-perfect robot duplicates of humans with seemingly unlimited stamina and the ability to function even when extremely heavily damaged. However, when said robots are damaged, it's revealed that they are hollow on the inside, with no circuits or machinery of any kind (even if they make mechanical whirring noises as they move around); just a strange blue ink that coats the inside of their hollow plastic bodies. Furthermore, their limbs and heads are held together by joints similar to action figures, which begs the question as to how the Blanks are capable of eating and drinking as they do in the film. Even the [[spoiler:giant robot statue that comes to life halfway through the film seems magical in nature, having sleek, solid metal limbs with no visible joints]]. The only conclusion one can draw from all this is that the Network's technology is just so much more advanced that ours that to us it appears nonsensical.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialAtmosphericActions: It's subtle, but the background extras in the pub scenes are all going about their business: extremely limited, repetitive business. This kind of lazy choreography would normally be a sign of a poor production, but in this case it's actually a very sneaky hint that [[spoiler: the populace of Newton Haven are not real people]].

** It's ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'' meets AlienInvasion. Almost everyone in the film is a StepfordSmiler: the town, Gary, Andy, and Pete in particular. (Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.)

** It's ''Literature/TheStepfordWives'' meets AlienInvasion. Almost everyone in the film is a StepfordSmiler: the town, Gary, Andy, and Pete in particular. (Steve and Sam are just CannotSpitItOut victims.) Heck, Edgar Wright stated the Blanks are based on the movie poster (seen on the film's trope page.)
