''Grave Robbers from Outer Space'' makes fun of horror and sci-fi movies like ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'' ("Grave Robbers from Outer Space" was that film's original title), ''Franchise/FridayThe13th'', ''Film/{{Carrie|1976}}'', ''Film/KillerKlownsFromOuterSpace'', The UniversalHorror series, and ''Film/AttackOfTheKillerTomatoes''. ''Grave Robber's 2: Skippy's Revenge'' is an expansion with more horror/sci-fi. ''Grave Robbers 3: Suburban Slashers of Sunnydale Street'' is another expansion with more horror/sci-fi.

* RedundantParody: From time to time, perhaps most obviously in the cards from ''Kung-Fu Samurai'' that are obviously taken from ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina''; the "Clueless Gaijin" is clearly Jack, the "Crazy Old Wizard" is clearly Egg, and the "Magic Potion" is, well, Egg's magic potion.

* LongTitle: As you probably noticed from the page description, all the expansions have these. There's a few individual cards with them as well, including [[TitleDrop every game's title Monster]] and "Demonic God Up To No Good."

* ChainmailBikini: In ''Berserker Halflings''. It actually gives a respectable defensive bonuse AND makes the wearer immune to death by special effects cards. Assuming the wearer is female.
