* ArmouredClosetGay: Stephen [[http://www.cc.com/video-clips/b9m4e5/the-colbert-report-threatdown---interdimensional-black-people--gay-strokes---manipulative-sicko-monkeys confirms that he works out to "prevent gay strokes."]]
--> '''Stephen''': I'm hitting the gym, getting pretty cut. And I'm shedding pounds by not cooking with butter. Instead I use it to grease up my body when I work out. That way, none of those stroke gays, or stro-mos as we call them at the gym, can get a handle on me.

* StalkerWithACrush: Colbert stalks his ex-girlfriend Charlene, despite her restraining order against him. So he formed a prog-rock band "Stephen and the Colberts" and wrote a song about it. [[{{Defictionalization}} It later became a song in]] RockBand.

* GrandFinale: As expected, it was suitably impressive, with Colbert first [[spoiler: shooting Grimmy during the last-ever 'Cheating Death with Stephen Colbert' segment, becoming immortal]], then after a commercial break, he begins [[spoiler: to sing Vera Lynn's WWII standard "We'll Meet Again". The camera then pans to both Creator/JonStewart and Music/RandyNewman (on piano) joining him. Then, over 150 former guests begin to gradually come out on stage to join him, along with several pre-taped sequences including the show's crew, Tek Jansen, astronaut Scott Kelly on the ISS, troops in Afghanistan and others singing as well.]] Once the stage clears and the studio is empty, we find Colbert [[spoiler: on the Colbert studio's roof, where he joins Abraham Lincoln, Santa Claus, and AlexTrebek in Santa's sleigh to live in eternity.]] Before he [[spoiler: rides away, he breaks character briefly, to thank the guests & crew that have been on the show over the last nine years.]] He then throws the show [[spoiler: back to Stewart, who wraps the show (inferring slyly it's been one big Daily Show segment) up as a 'great Report',]] before showing a [[spoiler: Moment Of Zen of Stewart & Colbert breaking character during a show hand-off from 2010.]]

* JesusWasWayCool: In amongst all the biting parody, the real Stephen Colbert's devout but socially-progressive Catholicism -- the man is a Sunday-school teacher! -- manages to sneak in more than once, including one notable sequence where "Stephen" (the character) quite inadvertently concludes that the real Jesus would actually be a liberal Democrat.

** The introductory text that appears next to Stephen also changes on occasion. This has ranged from words such as "Megamerican" to "Lincolnish", "Libertease", and "SCILF."
*** Even "Hail Hydra" once

* CriticalResearchFailure: Regularly invoked and PlayedForLaughs -- it's often obvious that Stephen has no idea what he's talking about when he covers an issue.

* AnalProbing: A segment about an "Alien Hunter," Derrel Simms, sees Mr. Simms recount a story about him being probed by aliens in his youth. After describing the alien probe [[FreudWasRight in very phallic terms]], Colbert interrupts him in a voice over just before Simms was about to say where the probe was "jammed very painfully," exclaiming, "Okay, that's enough; I think we ''all'' know where the probe goes." Simms then reveals that it went into [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope his nasal passage.]]]]
