* FrameUp: The group's elaborate plan to get the Germans banned is to hold an {{Oktoberfest}}, make the Germans drink beer and take photos of them doing it.



* [[ItsAllAboutMe It's All About Us]]: When Professor Cornwallis confronts them in the cafeteria, the group believes that he turned the entire school against them so that they could learn about different perspectives of history. They're wrong, and it leads Cornwallis to wonder if he can still alter his contract.
-->'''Prof. Cornwallis:''' Are you actually suggesting that a professor at Greendale would set up an elaborate ruse just to teach ''seven'' students a lesson?\\
'''Everyone nods and agrees as if it makes sense.'''\\
'''Troy:''' That's a Wednesday.



* MarketBasedTitle: Apparently the German dub of ''Series/HogansHeroes'' was called ''Hogan's Villains''. For a quick clear up, the German title in reality was infacted ''Ein Käfig Voller Helden'' meaning a ''A Cage Full Of Heros''.

* SeriesContinuityError: During the incident with Annie's Pen, the Dean continually makes announcements about a puppy parade taking place in the quad, and it's heavily implied that the study group are ''the only seven students'' too involved in their ouwn SeriousBusiness to attend. In this episode, the incident is mentioned as one where other students also needed the room and in the flashbacks there are several students around the library very much unconcerned with the parade.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The Germans use phrases with terrible grammar like "der kaffee hausen" or "knaidels".



* ConspicuousTrenchcoat: When the Dean shows up with his black trenchcoat at prison, we know somethings up (or underneath).



* GotMeDoingIt: Lampshaded by the Dean when he starts using the term ''Changnesia'' himself.



* HandsGoDown: When the history teacher request the students to describe a battle from both sides as part of their test, a lot of hands go up. All hands go down when he announces that no dioramas are allowed.



* [[invoked]]TooSoon: Jeff refers to this trope by name. He says that ''Series/HogansHeroes'' was produced before people had the concept of TooSoon.



* JustFollowingOrders: When Abed feels bad for having lied to Karl, Troy comforts him by saying [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything he was just following orders]].

* SinkOrSwimFatherhood: The Dean is made responsible for Chang who acts like a child due to his Changnesia.

* UngratefulBastard: Neil's presence in the protest against the group may place him here, since one of the things that the protest brings up is the group's use of the study room to play Dungeons and Dragons -- which was a well-meaning (if flawed) attempt to help Neil resolve his issues around exclusion that were leading him towards suicide, something which Neil is curiously silent about.

* AllGermansAreNazis: Played straight for awhile ("That's called appeasement, and everyone knows if you give the Germans something small like the study room or {{Austria}}, they end up wanting something big, [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII like Earth]]."), but subverted by the end of the episode when the study group realizes they've acted more like Nazis than the actual Germans.
