* BigDamnHeroes: Moe does this twice for Homer. First, saving him from Jimbo, Dolph, and Kearney's dads with a shotgun, and later, flying him out of the ring before Drederick Tatum can KO him.



* NoSell and StoneWall: Thanks to a rare medical anomaly that renders Homer near-invulnerable to knockout punches. Since he has weak boxing skills, Moe advises Homer to absorb everything these boxers can throw at them and then eventually wear them out before Homer simply uses a weak punch or a push to beat his opponents. The trope flies completely out the window when it quickly becomes clear the fearsome Drederick Tatum is far stronger and more capable of punishing Homer than any of his opponents.

** In just the first 5 seconds of his fight against Drederick Tatum, Homer gets severely beaten.



* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Moe ultimately gets Homer out of the match just before Tatum gets to KO him, much to the anger of everyone, especially Lucius Sweet, [[SweetAndSourGrapes though he still receives his check for $100,000 for the fight]].

* GenerationXerox: Dolph, Jimbo, and Kearney all look like their fathers (though Kearney's father should be older if Kearney is established to be OlderThanHeLooks -- unless it's the same with Kearney's father), only Dolph's dad has an eyepatch over one eye instead of his hair.

* VictoryByEndurance: All of Homer's victories as a boxer. He can't win unless his opponents become too tired to resist someone who can't even harm a fly caught between the glove and a pad.
