* AManIsNotAVirgin
** Tootsie when attempting to talk to Megagirl for the first time; she says that she is not a woman, and he responds by [[NoIndoorVoice yelling]] that not many people regard him as a man as he [[TooMuchInformation has never slept with a woman.]]
** Also [[AvertedTrope averted]] for ''every'' member of the Starship Rangers, who all thought that they were going to die virgins when captured by Mr. Spider.

* BadassMustache: Up has one. When it becomes apparent to Taz that he isn't the BadAss he once was, she rips it off and puts it on herself... only for Up to take out another one from one of his pouches and slap it on.

** Someone discovering an abandonded room in a collectivist society, which he runs away from after being assigned to a job he hates, sounds a lot like ''{{Anthem}}''.

* DeadlyEuphemism: One of the hive's most prominent job titles is "Nourishment". Any bug assigned that job is immediately devoured by the Overqueen.

** Pincer attempts to unleash a HurricaneOfEuphemisms, but Veeto [[ComicallyMissingThePoint ruins it]].
--> '''Pincer:''' I'd like to have her for dinner! Ha ha ha! I'd pick her brain! Ha ha ha!
--> '''Veeto:''' Yeah, and suck her blood!
--> '''Pincer:''' Quiet, you!

* TooDumbToLive: A lot of the Humans seem to come across as not working with a full deck of cards.

to:

* TooDumbToLive: A lot of the Humans seem to come across as not working with a full deck of cards. Justified, as Junior deliberately assembled an incompetent crew for the purposes of the evil plan, while Junior himself got the job through nepotism.

* ActingForTwo: Brian Holden, Nick Lang, Lauren Lopez, Jim Povolo and Dylan Saunders. In fact, except for Joey Richter, everyone plays at least one major character and miscellaneous ensemble parts.


Added DiffLines:

* RepriseMedley: In the middle of "Kick It Up A Notch", Pincer reprises "Life" and "I Wanna Be".


Added DiffLines:

** February's introductory dialogue--checking if the atmosphere is breathable, the stability of the planet's surface, and signs of intelligent life--mimics that of [[WesternAnimation/ToyStory Buzz Lightyear]].


Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: See NotSoDifferent above. The Overqueen eating the bugs of the hive is PlayedForLaughs, even when she devours her right-hand man for no reason, and she's still regarded as the BigGood, while Pincer's desire to eat human brains is PlayedForDrama and pins him as the BigBad.

* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: Buggette wishes Bug luck in getting his bug job:
-->I bet you're gonna get a real great job from the Overqueen like... dung roller. Or dirt piler. Or dung dirtier.

** The minor character "Mister" has "Here's a tip!", which gets an IronicEcho from Bug at the climax.



* DeadlyEuphemism: One of the hive's most prominent job titles is "Nourishment". Any bug assigned that job is immediately devoured by the Overqueen.



* NotSoDifferent: Pincer and the Overqueen. Particularly that while he is a villain because he wishes to feast on human brains, this is actually not that different than the Overqueen routinely snacking on members of ''her own Hive''.

* NotSoDifferent: Pincer and the Overqueen. Particularly that while he is a villain because he wishes to feast on human brains, this is actually not that different than the Overqueen routinely snacking on members of ''her own Hive''. Heck, the whole reason Pincer is an outcast from the Hive is because he was assigned Nourishment and fled rather than let the queen eat him! Not exactly the most villainous motivation for ditching your community.
