* {{Housewife}}: Parodied and appear as the models of the Suburban Females encountered around Santa Modesta in the first game. With the DeliberateValuesDissonance in place, all of them appear to hate each other, despise their work, and are mostly Valium addicts. They wear outfits such as dressing gowns, hair curlers, and aprons tied around their waist.

With the DeliberateValuesDissonance in place, all of them appear to hate each other, despise their work, have deeply-repressed lesbian/bisexual urges, and are mostly Valium addicts. They wear outfits such as dressing gowns, hair curlers, and aprons tied around their waist.

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: Take all the problems America of the 1950s had, turn UpToEleven and enjoy.

%%* EasterEgg

to:

%%* EasterEgg* EasterEgg: There is one in Vietmahl in ''Big Willy Unleashed'' - Once the game is completed, Crypto can go to a temple ruins and activate a statue that summons a large group of Furons.



** This trope is actually made light of by a line said by a male hippie in Albion if you're caught bodysnatching.
-->How did this game get away with a T rating?



* GovernmentAgencyOfFiction: Though named after the real-life Majestic 12 agency that became defunct in the 1960s, Majestic is essentially an affectionate parody of TheMenInBlack.

* SatireParodyPastiche: All the games are generally a satirical parody of the date the setting takes place in. For example, the first game spoofs and parodies hundreds of events from TheFifties, including the first big Sci-Fi craze and America's fear of communism.

The second one spoofs TheSixties and the hippie counterculture, and the last two spoof TheSeventies and spoof off several popular movies.



* {{Terraform}}: The [[spoiler:Blisk's]] big plan is [[spoiler:using nuclear power to invest the world with Blisk spores and turn it into a water-submerged haven.]] By the time the storyline reveals their plans, [[spoiler:they've already set up a nuclear-harvesting plant in Russia and enslaved cosmonauts to help built a giant hive on the moon]], and that's where Crypto comes in.



* TooDumbToLive: Pretty much the reason as to why Crypto-136 dies. What gave him the idea to position his saucer '''in front of a rocket that was ready to take off?'''

* {{Irony}} - During ''Path Of The Furon'', Crypto tortures a Creator/JackNicholson {{Expy}} for having a grating voice. Crypto's voice is a subtle Jack Nicholson impersonation.

Added DiffLines:

* AchillesHeel:
** Crypto will immediately die if he touches water. Averted in Path of the Furon - Crypto will teleport back to land instead.
** Blisk Mutants and the Anal Probe, which return them back to the human host form. In addition, real Blisk and electricity, which weaken their shields.
** During the Kojira {{Kaiju}} battle, the monster's bottom-half lacks shielding, which makes it a weak stop for Crypto's weapons.
** During the final battle with [[spoiler:Milenkov, his Blisk form's shielding, which leaves him vulnerable to damage.]]

* InsaneTrollLogic: A hippie in the second game thinks her friend is sexist just because he doesn't agree with her wanting to get arrested to cause a revolution.

to:

* InsaneTrollLogic: InsaneTrollLogic:
** In the first game, the player can use this during "Citizen Crypto" during the mayor's speech.
--> Look, cows fart methane, and methane is flammable. We have more cows than Santa Modesta; you do the math.

Added DiffLines:

* GratuitousRussian: Oh dear, lots of it in the second game. Possibly a parodied version of this trope, knowing the nature of the series.
** Many of the KGB members say "Lestrovya!" in the second game. This is a {{Mondegreen}} of the word "no strovia", which means "cheers" in Russian.
** One of the more common mistakes is that "tovarisch" is commonly used as a greeting to Crypto by Natalya. This zig-zags between her saying the more correct "comrade".
** "Do svidaniya" is commonly misspelled as well.

* ShoutOut: The entire series is an {{homage}} to ''Film/MarsAttacks'', ''Film/MenInBlack'', ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'', and other alien related movies and shows.
** The Blue Moon Drive-In Theater during [[''Film/TeenagersFromOuterSpace'' Teenage Zombies From Outer Space]] before changing the film is playing a clip from the infamous movie ''Film/PlanNineFromOuterSpace''. You get to see some b-movies from the 1950s (most of which being the more SoBadItsGood ones) in the Archives of the mothership.
** Crypto and Pox both discuss possible future VideoGames in the third game, giving shout outs to ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'', ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'', ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'', and games based on movies, all in the same conversation.
** Path of the Furon has the mission [[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind Close Encounters of the Furon Kind]] where you have to reply to cultists beeping tones at your ship.
-->'''Pox''':Great Arkvoodle! The fools think we have a musical language!
-->'''Crypto''':Nobody ''talks'' music, that's stupid!
** Destroy All Humans! 2 also features both a ShoutOut to ''Franchise/StarWars'' and to ''Film/TheMatrix''.
-->'''Crypto:''' (To Dr. Go!) My name is Luk-I mean, Cryptosporidium. I'm here to rescue you.
-->'''Pox:''' (In reference to Crypto being Son of Arkvoodle) Crypto! What if it's true?! What if you're ''THE ONE''?!\\
'''Crypto:''' Well, I ''did'' take a red pill this morning, heheh.
** Seen when reading the thoughts of a female hippie resident of Bay City:
--> '' "The Adventures of Luke Starkiller? Ha! Dream on, Georgie boy!
** Panicking citizens of Albion may spout references to ''Franchise/{{Quatermass}}'', Musician/DavidBowie and ''Series/DoctorWho''. Throw one with your saucer's tractor beam or Psychokinesis and one citizen may just scream, [[Film/NineteenEightyFour "Double-plus ungood!"]], which is also heard sometimes when the alert level in Albion goes to tred.
** Some of the armed Cosmonauts in the second game might tell Crypto whilst attacking "[[Film/{{Alien}} In Space, no one can be hearing you screaming!]]"
** And, [[MightyMorphinPowerRangers Mighty Morphing Power Alien!!]]
** The Fantasy Atoll level in ''Big Willy Unleashed'' is a giant shout-out to ''Series/FantasyIsland'', right down to expies of Mr. Roarke and Tattoo (only with the bodies flipped).
** In the first game, Crypto is a [[Music/MarilynManson red-eyed, genitalia-lacking space alien.]]
** Silhouette, female badass extraordinaire, known only by her code name, is [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater a patriot]].
** In the fourth mission of Takoshima, if you try to talk to Professor Yuki with a non-White Ninja disguise, Crypto will attempt to hit on her, only for it to fail:
-->'''Crypto''': [[Film/FullMetalJacket I got five dollar, you love me long time?]]. (This is also parodied in the thoughts of a Japanese co-ed.)
** Some of the Free Love quotes pedestrians say make reference to songs that are popular during the 60s.
** A passing reference to Music/SteelyDan is made during the cutscene in "Where Have All The Flower Children Gone?", when Coyote Bongwater is finishing his meditation session with two female hippies.
-->'''Bongwater''': Remember, wherever you go, I'll be there. The shine of your Japan, the sparkle in your China.
-->'''Female Hippies''': Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva.
** Also serving as a TakeThat, while reading the minds of the inhabitants of Takoshima, a kamikaze soldier will have this thought:
--> "Hey Mickey Rooney, I saw Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys, and I know where you live!"
** Sometimes, while using Psychokinesis on multiple objects in Bay City without destroying or killing anyone, a female hippie will say "[[Music/JesusChristSuperstar What's the buzz? Tell me, what's a-happening!]] followed by a quick giggle. Crypto also says this quote before starting "From Russia With Guns".
