* LimitedWardrobe: In a fun mix between this trope and UnlimitedWardrobe, everyone has a series of outfits that they rotate through. Sheldon has a [[TheFlash Flash]] t-shirt that shows up often, Leonard has a jacket over a hoodie and brown pants he is always wearing, Raj is usually wearing a sweater-vest and Howard wearing uncomfortably tight turtlenecks and odd colored jeans. Penny has a wider variety, but her leisure clothing also tends to repeat.

Added DiffLines:

* NoTrueScotsman: Not necessarily the main characters, but the writers being aware of references to geek culture that don't go past skin-deep most of the time. If you're a fan of the same things the characters are, it can sometimes be hard to take them seriously when they mention something in a reference and get it at least partially wrong. For instance, when they mention ''Series/DoctorWho's'' main character, The Doctor, it's always by ''the show's'' name rather than his chosen title. It's forced and awkward every time they make the mistake. If no one else, ''Sheldon'' should always be making the distinction known between the two, as he's a big fan of the show and has the OCD tendencies to make it believable that he would. He's gotten into semantics arguments over less before. The only reason I can fathom is that they write it that way so that the people who don't know about the show too much aren't confused, but that's really not an excuse, as the internet is widely available for use if people are confused by a reference. It doesn't help that apparently not a lot of people apparently care that find clips on YouTube, or even other fans in the DW fandom, who'll say things like, "the older actors were credited as 'Doctor Who,'" or something of the like, despite that being his stated title and he's made corrections to people calling him just "Doc" in some of the episodes as recent as towards the end of David Tennant's tenure.

** Creator/JamesEarlJones is definitely this, though he has a bit of a prankster side (as CarrieFisher knows).
