* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Averted; all of the cameo actors play themselves.
** However, some suspect Derek is a parody of Creator/TomCruise.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Matilda is the OnlySaneMan in the main cast, until [[spoiler: she participates in an orgy.]] Even more so when she goes on a long description of her clothing while holding Katinka at gunpoint in retaliation for her insulting her fashion sense earlier.

** Hell, even Mugatu, the only person who recognizes that Derick has exactly one look, follows up MotiveRant by screaming about his piano key necktie as if it's some kind of grand accomplishment.



* OnlySaneMan: Part of Mugatu's MotiveRant. It is unusual that the ''villain'' is the OnlySaneMan.

Derek Zealander (Stiller) is a [[MemeticMutation really, really, ridiculously good-looking]] male model, who also happens to be incredibly shallow and not too bright. He suffers a professional and personal setback when he loses the Male Model of the Year crown to rookie Hansel ("he's so hot right now") and three of his friends to a [[TooDumbToLive freak gasoline fight accident]].

* DullSurprise: All of Derek's so-called "looks" are [[strike:almost]] identical (however, his "Magnum" look stops a shuriken in mid-air. Even Mugatu is wowed: "Dear god, it's beautiful!").
** There is a difference between Magnum and all the rest: [[ChekhovsSkill he turns left]] before delivering it. Less [[BuffySpeak mindblowing-ly]], his head is also vertical, as opposed to the angle his other looks were at.
