* JerkAss: Arguably the Mingebag players. Either they don't know that they're effectively perma-banning hundreds, possibly thousands of innocent gamers, or they just don't care.

The film opens with the narrator and protagonist describing the Garry's Mod environment in Half-Life, used to play with the physics engine or to build constructions inside it. The trouble begins when a strange fog envelops the world - one that the administrator of that particular server neither enabled nor is able to stop - and a new contraption appears, which eventually starts vaporizing every player in the game, except for a few fortunate to escape.

* InsideAComputerSystem - the whole point of the film
* SoundtrackDissonance - Lemon Jelly's upbeat "Nice Weather For Ducks" plays during the credits, while the rest of the soundtrack is much more serious in nature.
* DisintegratorRay- The Mingepods' Remover guns
* ChildrenAreCruel: The Mingebags are basically 12 year old kids playing a video game. What makes them cruel is what they choose for fun.
* NotSoInvincibleAfterAll - The Mingepods could easily be taken out with Lua coded bricks which undoes the welds holding them together (The Artileery guns use them, Two Admin planes use them as bombs, And one could believe that the Thunder Child uses them for her ammunition.) What makes them hard to stop is how quickly they destroy players.
* CoolBoat - Renamed "The Admin Boat: Thunder Child"
* JerkAss - Arguably the Mingebag players. Either they don't know that they're effectively perma-banning hundreds, possibly thousands of innocent gamers, or they just don't care.
* HopelessWar - The war with the mingebags; everybody who fights back just ends up getting killed [[InsideAComputerSystem (crashed)]]
* BadassNormal - Steinman, the protagonist, is one of the few players to survive the invasion, even after a face-to-face battle with the invaders themselves.
* AffectionateParody - of Music/JeffWaynesMusicalVersionOfTheWarOfTheWorlds.
* (Un)RealityEnsues - When Steinmann regroups with some survivors, one of the players suggests they hide underground, following the WotW script....Except an admin points out they're on a map, so it wouldn't work, and then promptly uses Table Fu on him
* SequelHook - Despite the increased security to ensure ''nothing'' like the Mingepods ever happens again, it appears that there are some remnants of them left.
* SeriousBusiness - Stienmann seems to take the game rather seriously (presumably being crashed by the remover gun somehow makes you totally unable to log in again, but he stays up all night playing the game just running away...). FridgeBrilliance, in that Stienmann comes from R.J's ''Serious'' Build Server.
