** When Dave finds a discarded gravity gun in the dumpster, he naturally tries to use it on the objects around him. Finding out that the battery is drained, Mike hooks the gun up to their APC's battery. Dave tries to use it to tear some gutters off of an apartment building, [[spoiler:but ends up lifting the whole thing off of its foundations, then ''launching the building across the city'' after trying to put it back down.]]
-->'''Apartment resident''': ''HOLY SHIT!''
-->'''Mike''': ... Not good, Dave.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: Mike in The Tunnel. He continues to treat events as though he's still in a police comedy and details such as Dave disappearing, a dead body stripped of flesh and being trapped in the tunnels by a crazed man as irritants. He's actually in a horror story.

** I'm not certain if the Halloween Safety episode was in continuity, pretty much ''because'' it ended with [[spoiler: everyone getting attacked by zombies]]. SnapBack, maybe?

* LivingShadow: Well, not exactly, but there's no closer trope. The Guy with No Shadow... is [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin exactly what he sounds like]], then he suddenly gains a shadow while Mike and Dave are distracted and the camera is off him.

* WhatMeasureIsAMook: The whole point of the series is to give a bit of humanity to the otherwise forgettable and uniformly evil [[{Mooks}} Civil Protection officers]] from VideoGame/HalfLife2.

* PunchClockVillain: Mike and Dave, as described above, are just in it because they don't have any qualifications for another job, and rarely ever abuse their power like the CP's you see in Half-life 2. In fact, it is even debatable whether they count as villains in the first place, as, judging by the new episode, they go out of their way to help someone when they think they are trapped in a cave with something attacking them. And in the first episode, Mike asks Dave to stop bothering the citizens, because they're "Just on their way to work". They also are happy to give The Guy with No Shadow directions to the train station (until they discover his... anomaly). Aside from him, the only other person they even talk to face-to-face is a Vortigaunt, and despite his suspicious behavior, all they want is to ask him if "Combine" is a stupid name for an alien race. Hell, Dave when talks about joining the rebellion at one point until he is convinced by Mike that they have no chance of succeeding.
