* ButtMonkey: Liz is the victim of Marenghi's very blatantly chauvinistic writing. In one seen she screams and Dagless punches her in the face. She reponds, "Thanks! I was hysterical!"

* {{Filler}}: Dean Learner states that so much slow-motion footage was used because the episodes often ran several minutes short and had to be padded out somehow. The fact that most of the dialogue is delivered in a rushed garble probably explains why each episode winds up short.

* NationalStereotypes: A deliberately bad one of Scotland; their ghosts all wear kilts and [[RabCNesbitt string vests]], have killer bagpipes in tow (which rip off your trousers, [[CerealInducedSuperpowers make your legs glow orange]] and dye your hair ginger), talk in "[[SubtitlesAreSuperfluous indecipherable]]" accents and are placated with shortbread. His description of [[ViolentGlaswegian non-phantasmic Scottish people is even LESS complimentary]]. At his most charitable, Garth seems to view the Scottish as some sort of NobleSavage.

* ChinaTakesOverTheWorld: Thornton Reed's TheUnseen boss "Won Ton" is presumably meant to be this trope. It could also possibly be JapanTakesOverTheWorld despite [[InterchangeableAsianCultures wontons being Chinese]]; Garth Marenghi doesn't seem like the type to know the difference.



* InvisiblePresident: Reed's apparently fearsome boss "Wanton" is never seen, only spoken of.

** Todd has a habit of [[AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle drawing out vowels]] and [[LargeHam hams up every line]] like Creator/TomBaker on one of his drunk days. He also has a tendency to break LipLock when re-dubbing his lines. He also strikes a pose whenever entering a room or turning a corner, another trait lifted from Tom Baker.
