* HollywoodTactics: Subtly lampshaded when Arrowroot stupidly suggests marching on Sorhed's overwhelmingly larger army after the siege of Twodor is over. Goodgulf can't believe anyone could be so cataclysmically stupid and tries to throttle him.

* TaxonomicTermConfusion: There is an appearance by "six different phyla of giant insects". Insects, whatever their size, are a single ''class'' of phylum Arthropoda -- and you would think Harvard students would know that. On the other hand, [[HardOnSoftScience Harvard writing students.]]

* SaidBookism: PlayedForLaughs, like pretty much everything else.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: When it was originally written in 1969, this book was just a straightforward parody with no particular theme, full of modern pop culture references (much like the parody-movies of today); but to modern readers, "Bored of the Rings" could easily be described as "a '60s retelling of 'Lord of the Rings.'"

Added DiffLines:

* MrAltDisney: Serutan, with his Dicky Dragon amusement park and merchandise. At one point in the past, Goodgulf was his business partner, but their relationship soured due to Serutan becoming more greedy (at least, [[UnreliableExpositor according to Goodgulf]]).
