* ActionSurvivor: Every character. It is a zombie flick after all. Columbus is the stand-out though, as a VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft-playing dork who managed to be one of the last surviving people on earth just by [[ProperlyParanoid having a lot of (now-justified) phobias]]. The only exception being Tallahassee, who was a {{Badass}} to begin with.

* ActionSurvivor: This is Columbus up and down, with his list of rules and survival all on his own for quite a while.

Added DiffLines:

* IndestructibleEdible: Averted. Tallahassee is devoted to his hunt for a Twinkie because, as he points out to Columbus, they do have expiration dates.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Lampshaded by Columbus who tells the viewer that it's perfectly justifiable to speculate on the status of his virginity, and tries to brag about his first time in the back of a [=FedEx=] truck. Lampshaded ''again'' by Tallahassee who comments with a grin, "Finally made it to first base", when Wichita kisses Columbus.

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** Hilariously inverted. [[BrandX Pacific Playland]] is supposed to be in California but is actually [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Adventures Wild Adventures Theme Park]] in [[DeepSouth south Georgia]].
** [[spoiler:Bill Murray]]'s mansion, supposedly in Hollywood? That is in fact [[http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/490-West-Paces-Ferry-Rd-Nw_Atlanta_GA_30305_1113032606 490 West Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta, GA]].

* 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.

* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Subverted. You ''think'' this is what Tallahassee is doing, but then you remember what a CrazyAwesome {{Badass}} he is]].

* 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.
