* GenreSavvy: The two Nazi goons who realize that their SkeletonMotif isn't ''quite'' right for [[ObviouslyEvil the heroes of a story.]]

* GenreSavvy: The two Nazi goons who realize that their SkeletonMotif isn't ''quite'' right for [[ObviouslyEvil the heroes of a story.]]]] The stage version adds one of them arguing that the pattern of German success in the war thus far doesn't fit with the heroes in any movie he's seen, but it ''does'' fit plenty of villains.

* DisproportionateRetribution: One sketch featured a man who [[GrammarNazi shot anybody who made a grammatical mistake dead.]] In fairness, he ''does'' apply it equally -- [[spoiler: he shoots himself when it is pointed out to him ''he'' made a grammatical mistake.]]

* ShipperOnDeck: A (sort-of) meta example; the producer and new writer in the ''Preston and Loader'' sketch are determined to basically turn what was previously a detective show into their personal gay {{slash}} FanFiction by having Preston and Loader make out with each other in every scene. One of the actors objects to this, but it turns out that the other actor also ships the two.

* CerebusEnding: The very last episode of the last series ends with a surprisingly touching sketch about a senile Sherlock Holmes, who reveals he knows [[TearJerker all too well what is happening to him]]. It also offers us a moment of HeReallyCanAct for both Mitchell and Webb. For a show built around frequently insincere, cynical BlackComedy and SurrealHumour, to have a moment of genuine pathos cap the series off works surprisingly well.
** Consider also that this is a ''SketchComedy'' we're talking about, not a {{Sitcom}}. It is rare - if not unprecedented - to see sketch comedy showrunners decide to finish off their run with a moment of ''genuine'' drama.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: General Drayfox is quite disturbed to hear that the superhero Captain Todger is in jail for statutory rape and is greatly appalled by his [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero politically incorrect ways]].
