* AllIsWellThatEndsWell: At the end [[spoiler: Jerry won the fight but the school store was still ransacked and robbed. The next day, all the kids insist on buying items at super inflated rates (such as a dollar for a piece of paper), Jerry gets a huge cut of the pool placed on him the previous afternoon, and Buddy returns the money. The store is implied to not only recover from the theft, but have a huge surplus to boot.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Needless to say, if the shenanigans in this movie happened at a real high school, a lot of people would be in very hot water with the local law enforcement, both faculty and student.

* GoneHorriblyRight: One of Jerry's schemes is to get detention (or a suspension) so he won't have to face Buddy after school. To do this, he acts like a swaggering jerk, gives a crude and smarmy book report on a softcore porn book, and makes a pass at his teacher. This fails on every level: the kids in the class think the report is awesome, the teacher is absolutely smitten by Jerry's swagger, and he doesn't get as much as a reprimand from the faculty.

* BigDamnHeroes: Vince springs on Buddy and attacks him [[BewareTheNiceOnes with such vicious abandon]] that even Buddy is surprised for a moment.



* {{Yandere}}: His best friend Franny who CantSpitItOut but still has an intense desire to [[UnusualEuphemism "bond"]] which got positively creepy at one point.

* WhatTheHellHero: A theme in this movie. Jerry does some pretty despicable things to avoid the fight, including robbery and betrayal.
** Amazingly enough, the *villain* asks this of him. When Jerry buys Buddy off, Buddy points out that Jerry didn't even try to stand up for himself. He almost sounds disappointed -- not that the fight's off, but in Jerry.

Added DiffLines:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Invoked hilariously twice. Poor Jerry is constantly reminded of his upcoming slaughter from his class lessons:
** A Literature teachers recounts [[TheIliad Hector's mortifying death at the hand of Achillies]]. She even smugly recounts how [[DirtyCoward Hector is running like a pussy and crying for mercy.]]
** A short film is shown in Biology class, showing a innocent cricket ambushed and devoured by a monstrous wolf spider.

* OfficialKiss: Subverted following Jerry and Franny’s kiss. Rather than going through with “bonding” with Jerry, Franny decides there must be some other way to help him. The ending is ambiguous about what happens to their relationship from there.
