* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: Episode 3 has Flowers conducting one for the position of the other Blue rookie. In a twist, he's looking ''for'' the most terrible interviewee, as the more expendable, the better. [[ForegoneConclusion Tucker gets the job]].

** In "Invaders from Another Mother", the FH57 crew convince Peake to stop his insurrection with his cult of aliens with a heartfelt speech by their leader, and reassure Santos that although he won't have the wine bar he wanted, they'll make him a shelf instead, they all are overjoyed with their new-found unity as a team and the freedom to travel in space. Then their resident AI, Cherry mishears "self-construction" as "self-destruction", presumably again, blowing them all to bits.

* ArtShift: The season is animated in a multitude of different styles.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Hero might be stretching it, but episodes 6 and 7 reinforce the notion that there's Reds and Blues all over the galaxy, and they're all idiots.



* ShoutOut: A rather transparent one. Episode three is called [[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey "Fifty Shades of Red"]].
* WhamLine: Flowers' speech to the cobalt soldier he's brought into Sidewinder ends with a name:

to:

* ShoutOut: SpecialEffectFailure: In-universe, when the FH57 Red team [[spoiler:arrive at Blood Gulch]], they note with some confusion that it all looks so low-res and blocky.
* ShaggyDogStory: Done twice.
** In "The Brick Gulch Chronicles", Simmons and Grif spend the episode looking for a birthday present for Sarge. After many mishaps, Simmons eventually gives him a firework, which fails to ignite. After celebrating that they're glad to be alive, [[DiabolusExMachina Caboose brings them a birthday candle that blows them all to bits]].

* ForegoneConclusion: Since the newly-introduced Hammer is a soldier accompanying Grif and Simmons on a mission in a prequel flashback, the fact that he's going to kick the bucket is obvious and played for laughs.

** We see the FH 57 unit plan to unite with the Red team against the Blues. Since the live footage is from Season 1 and we've never seen them before, we know they don't get there.

* {{Retcon}}: One that's been a ''long'' time coming. In Season 1, Church reminisces about his supposed time in Sidewinder, where he witnessed Tex take out a legion of soldiers, including his friend Private Jimmy. This scene in particular (in addition to one from ''Out of Mind''), was contradicted by the later revelations about the Alpha's creation and posting at Blood Gulch in Seasons 6 and 10. This is finally explained in Episode 4, revealing that [[spoiler:Private Jimmy is Church's original host body, and was lobotomized during the implementation surgery on Sidewinder. Church filled the gaps in his memory with some influence from Flowers, replacing the Freelancer personnel Tex fought during the crash with the blue army and either Carolina or the Meta with Jimmy himself.]]

* AlternateUniverse: Discussed by Vic in the opening monologue to episode 5, which itself takes place in an alternate universe where the BGC are Mega Bloks figurines in a [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Toy Story-esque]] scenario.
--> '''Vic''': Yo! You ever hear of that multiverse theory? ''Way crazy,'' amigo. A bunch of eggheads think there's an ''unlimited'' number of parallel universes. Like, maybe there's a universe where no one's even heard of Red vs. Blue. It could be, like, Green vs. Beige. Or, there could be a universe where we're all fish! I don't why I said fish as an example, maybe there's a universe out there where I made a better analogy. Let's all swim to that one. Dude, there could be a universe where we don't even ''exist.'' Or, maybe we're just a part of someone's dream. Maybe we're in that universe right now! Maybe this is all just part of some kid's imagination. ''That'' would be weird.

* XMeetsY: Episode 5 can be easily summed up as Red vs. Blue meets ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie''.

At the end of the episode, Caboose gives Sarge a cake... with [[OhCrap another mini explosive]] as the candle.]]
