* BookEnds: "Teenage Mutant Ninja Roommates" starts and ends with the guys all arguing and yelling at each other at the same time, only to stop and share a few contented bites of food, at the beginning, it's pizza, then at the end, donuts.

* AffectionateParody/ DeconstructiveParody: Of "Bro Comedy" in general. While the three leads each embody various aspects of the typical characters found in bro comedies, they are clearly shown to be [[ManChild Man Children]] simply emulating what television and movies have told them is cool. Because of this, the series manages to both present the protagonists as fairly innocent and sympathetic while also lampooning the portrayal of masculinity in media.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Montez, one of the boys' co-workers. He has a Spanish surname, but acts stereotypically black, JiveTurkey accent and all. (It could be possible he's mixed race.)
-->'''Blake''': He's black?
-->'''Adam''': There's no way to tell.

* {{Flanderization}}: The main trio have gotten a ''lot'' dumber over time.

* {{Flanderization}}: The main trio have gotten a ''lot'' dumber over time. Might be justified due to the all the drugs they're known to do.



* LoserProtagonist: The three guys, Jillian, Alice, pretty much all of their coworkers and Karl are all pretty pathetic people all around-this is PlayedForLaughs as they have so much room to grow-not that they ever do.

* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Subverted. While The three main characters are basically the annoying frat boys that come to your party uninvited, get really drunk, and fuck up your couch, they manage to be so ineffectual and pathetic while still showing heart every now and then that they actually become sympathetic-"Heist School" is a prime example because the guys lose so badly to teenagers and audiences ''hated'' the ending. The guys are losers, but they're the audience's losers.
