* LongRunnerLineUp: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz, Jim West, and Steve Jay have been with him for almost as long. This is an unusual example in that these three are almost totally overshadowed by Weird Al himself. The lineup's only change since then has been the addition of Ruben Valtierra, and that lineup has been stable since around 1992 or so.

* MinorFlawMajorBreakup: Or, as he likes to put it, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtMU8nvZzOs Close But No Cigar]]."" He has another case in "Albequerque" - he's just not ready for the level of commitment that Zelda asks for: [[spoiler: joining the Columbia Records club]].


Added DiffLines:

* SlasherMovie: The genre's tropes are mocked in "Nature Trail To Hell," on his second album.

** "It's All About the Pentiums" almost squeaks by, because so many of the specs Al boasts about are either still a long way from becoming the norm (a flatscreen monitor 40 inches wide[[note]]recent gaming monitors have been getting bigger in order to make higher resolutions more noticeable, but even the biggest monitors rarely exceed 34 inches diagonal, a far cry from 40 inches ''horizontal''[[/note]]) or just absurd by any era's standards (a hundred gigabytes of RAM[[note]]8 gigabytes is sufficient for any gaming rig, and the max that most computers can even support is a wildly-impractical 64 gigabytes)... the only line that's completely unsalvageable even with creative editing is... well, the title line. The Pentium brand was discontinued in 2006 before being retooled as a low-end budget processor, losing its top-of-the-line implications.

* AllStarCast: Invoked. His music videos are slowly growing into into this, but it really shows in the video for "Tacky" which guest stars Creator/JackBlack, MargaretCho, [[WesternAnimation/GravityFalls Kristen]] [[WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers Schaal]], [[{{Archer}} Aisha]] [[WhoseLineIsItAnyway Tyler]], and [[Series/ModernFamily Eric Stonestreet]].

Added DiffLines:

* RewindGag: Near the end of the video for "Amish Paradise", he sings through one scene which obviously plays backwards. Most notably, a buggy rolls past in the background backwards.

* UnsportsmanlikeGloating: "Sports Song" is essentially one long, preemptive parade of this, put into song.

** Initially, his singing style was strictly his crazy, shrill-sounding voice; he'd largely phased it out by the time of the ''Dare to Be Stupid'' album.
