* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Lampshaded. [[spoiler:In the climax, Columbus finds a zombie clown blocking his path to Wichita and Little Rock on the Blast Off ride, and remembers Rule #17: "Don't Be A Hero", as it could get him killed trying to save them. After a moment of deliberation, he decides some rules are made to be broken (they are ''his'' rules, after all), [[LetsGetDangerous changes the rule to "Be A Hero", and attacks the clown]].]]

* {{Badass}}:
** Tallahassee. Most of the time, when a hero in a zombie flick gets into a small shack utterly surrounded on all sides by a huge crowd of zombies, it's only a matter of time before they get overwhelmed. Not Tallahassee. It is, however, noted several times that he appears to be trying too hard.
** Watch closely at the "business is good" flashback. Zombies are [[spoiler: ''running away from Tallahassee!'' That's right, he's so {{Badass}} the undead fear ''him'']].



** Tallahassee is DualWielding chainsaws. This is to establish his CrazyAwesome {{Badass}} credentials immediately. Similarly, Wichita is shown holding a bloody chainsaw in the movie poster.

* TheJaywalkingDead: Tallahassee's EstablishingCharacterMoment has him speeding down the highway, giving the ToyotaTripwire to any zombies that get in his way. This establishes him as the kind of CrazyAwesome {{Badass}} zombie hunter that a CrazyAwesome zombie story needs.

It's the end of the world, so [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror you might as well have some fun]]. [[GenreSavvy You've seen the movies, now you get to live the life]]. Load up on shotguns, ammo, sledgehammers and banjos, because this is Zombieland -- where your town is your name, where you must always beware of the bathroom, and where your biggest competition for Zombie Kill of the Week is a [[NeverMessWithGranny cheerful, cardigan-wearing nun]].

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: "Don't swing! Don't swing!... Swing!"

* AttackAttackRetreatRetreat: "Don't swing! Don't swing!... Swing!"Swing!" Columbus is saying this to Tallahassee in the grocery store while being chased by a fat zombie, while Tallahassee prepares to whack it with a baseball bat.

** It's small moment, but listen closely when Tallahassee mentions what home was to him before the zombie outbreak. He noticeably pauses before he says [[spoiler:"puppy named Buck". That's because he didn't lose his puppy, he just probably couldn't bring himself to say he actually lost his son. We (and Columbus) don't find this out until later when the characters are playing Monopoly in Bill Murray's mansion.]]

* ImagineSpot: When Columbus is using the bathroom (after SearchingTheStalls to make sure it's safe), he mentions how his biggest fear is clowns, and imagines one crawling under the door, like the zombie in the opening when demonstrating Rule #3 ([[TheCanKickedHim beware of bathrooms]]).

* BorrowedCatchphrase: Columbus uses Tallahassee's catchphrase of "Time to nut up or shut up" [[spoiler:when he faces the zombie clown.]]



* ImprovisedWeapon: A banjo, hedge clippers, [[ToyotaTripwire car doors]], toilet seat covers, a toilet cistern lid, a piano... even a ''carnival ride''. The banjo gets bonus points - Tallahassee plays "[[{{Deliverance}} Dueling Banjos]]" to attract a zombie before braining said zombie with it.
