* HornyDevils: The boys are surrounded by a number of ladies with devil horns and barbed tails in Hell during the "Salesman" video in "The Devil and Peter Tork".



* IncorruptiblePurePureness: In "The Devil and Peter Tork", the only reason Peter wanted to play the harp wasn't for fame or fortune, but merely because he just wanted to play the harp. Zero decides to test this by seemingly taking away the ability, which Mike says [[ItwasWithYouAllAlong that Peter always possessed]], and Peter gives a touching performance of beautiful harp music, which leads Judge Roy Bean to declare Peter not guilty.



* InsaneTrollLogic: In 'The Devil and Peter Tork", Micky has a dialogue with UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun consisting of indecipherable gibberish with his sword drawn, and Mike suddenly stands up and says something at random, to which Attila respectfully bows away.
-->'''Micky''': What did you say?\\
'''Mike''': I don't know.



* LouisCypher: S. Zero, the pawn shop owner in "The Devil and Peter Tork", who comes to the Monkees' door to collect Peter's soul in exchange for the harp.



* PhraseCatcher: In "The Devil and Peter Tork", when Mike calls Mr. Zero to take the stand:
-->'''Davy''': Would you please raise your right hand and put your left hand on the Bible?\\
'''Zero''': You must be joking.

* {{Revival}}: The 1987 series/band ''The New Monkees'', which was intended to make the franchise relevant to the Creator/{{MTV}} era, was a revival InNameOnly. It featured none of the original band members, and it had only one tenuous connection to the 60s project: the executive producer was Steve Blauner, studio manager of Rafelson and Schneider's Raybert Productions, the company that made the original series and ''Film/{{Head}}''. ''The New Monkees'' failed as quickly as the "old" Monkees had succeeded.

** An episode parodying ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe'' starts with the Crusoe and Man Friday characters watching ''TheMonkees'', and Friday saying, "Who writes this stuff?'' Once the band arrives, he would repeat this frequently while watching their antics.
