* BrickJoke: At the beginning of the episode, Bart explains to Milhouse that "Radioactive Man has his famous catch phrase, 'Up and at 'em,' with 'at 'em' spelled A-T-O-M in a delicious {{pun}}." Later on, we see that Wolfcastle is completely unable to say the phrase as a pun.

* CelebrityIsOverrated: Milhouse experiences this big time, to the point that he didn't really want to be Fall Out Boy in the first place and simply got forced into it. As the episode goes on, Milhouse is just further and further disillusioned no matter how much Bart or anyone else tries to spin being a celebrity to him.

* TheRealHeroes:Brought up by Milhouse as a point for his belief that CelebrityIsOverrated, but it is openly mocked by Bart, who says that the "real heroes" are ''losers'' because the "Real World" issues just keep on coming, and if you want ''real'' results (read: bad guys dying and such) you should call on the Stallones, the Schwarzeneggers and ([[TakeThat in a lesser measure]]) the Van Dammes.

* OffModel: This was the first episode to be done in digital ink and paint (back when 90% of animation was still done with cels and traditional ink and paint), so a lot of the color and character designs will look off for those who aren't used to seeing it this way (it was one of the reasons this episode was despised on snpp.com -- that, and the [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot writers choosing to follow Milhouse as the new Fallout Boy rather than have Bart be a star and learn firsthand that]] CelebrityIsOverrated, though he already did in "Bart Gets Famous", when he became known as "The 'I Didn't Do It' Kid").
