** "The High School Reunion" references Mac's dog Poppins and a number of minor characters mentioned in passing in earlier seasons. Dennis' ex-wife of two episodes makes an appearance, as does the guy who got a box full of hornets from Charlie for dumping the Waitress. Really, the episode is just wall-to-wall references to past episodes, characters, and relationships.

* CrapsackWorld: Actually averted if you think about it. While almost all of the Gang' associates are horrible people, it is made very clear that this is mostly due to the Gang's extremely negative influence on their lives. From what little of the world we see outside of the Gang's little bubble it appears to be virtually identical to our own, and we even meet several kind and successful people who were lucky enough to not have met the Gang. The show isn't about how terrible the world is, it's about how terrible the Gang is.

** A minor example: Mac first starts hanging out with Carmen, a male-to-female transsexual, in the episode "Charlie Has Cancer". At one point during the episode, [[DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength she gives Mac a low-five so hard that it hurts his hand]]. Later, in "Mac is a Serial Killer", Mac becomes uncomfortable with some of Carmen's masculine tendencies, and he cites the fact that she's "really strong" and that she hurts him when she uses her hands during their make-out sessions.

** In "The Gang Gets Whacked", Frank is against the Gang selling cocaine to fund an electric bill saying "only the biggest pieces of shit deal drugs". He's not above ''using'' drugs however. He was also okay with pimping his own son as a gigolo in the same episode.
** The gang as a whole despite their own immoral and disgusting lifestyles are all disturbed by the [=McPoyle=] family. Justified since the [=McPoyles=] are [[UpToEleven 10 times]] [[IncestIsRelative more depraved]] [[BigScrewedUpFamily than the gang is.]]

* DeconstructiveParody: Of the traditional {{Sitcom}}.
-->'''[[WebVideo/WisecrackEdition Jared]]:''' Unlike the satisfying and sentimental narratives used in classic sitcoms, ''It's Always Sunny'' has spent much of its twelve seasons exploring what happens when a group of narcissistic sociopaths have their insane ideas bankrolled by a troll-shaped millionaire. Rather than following customary tropes used by shows like ''Series/{{Cheers}}'', ''Series/{{Friends}}'', and ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', ''It's Always Sunny'' actively subverts them, making it the perfect anti-sitcom.
