* InsectGenderBender: Ants shouldn't have gender as we define it anyway, much less love interests.

*** In fact, ants are typically the ''predators'' of termites, and in fact individually outclass them in size, strength and durability.
** The queen is depicted as being the same size as the worker ants, but with a hugely bloated abdomen. Real queen ants are much bigger than the workers, and while having big abdomens to house the ovaries, is more easily distingished by her enlarged thorax, which formerly held her wing muscles.
** The ant larvae, which have eyes and stubby legs and are shown crawling about. In real life, ant larvae are pretty much just an immobile tube with a mouth and anus.



* ArtisticLicenseGeography: All of the major skyscrapers of UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity are clumped together during TheReveal. At least the Statue of Liberty doesn't appear and the Great Lawn of Central Park is depicted accurately.

The Twin Towers are also shown being side-by-side, even though in actuality they were diagonal to each other.

* AlliterativeName: Colonel Cutter



* OneWordTitle: A pun on "Ants", and Ant Z, the protagonist, so sort of a ProtagonistTitle.



* ProtagonistTitle: If the title is interpreted as Ant Z, instead of XtremelyKoolLetterz variant of Ants.

Meanwhile, Weaver, who has fallen for the career girl (and Z's work friend) Azteca (Creator/JenniferLopez), feels terrible about switching places, even though he too had no idea the army was about to go to war. However when he learns Z is the surviving ant and is now a war hero (despite not doing anything; left traumatized by the fighting), he is ecstatic.

** No, termites do NOT look like that. They are small and white, with large orange heads, and do not shoot acid, are not bigger than ants, and way more. Some species of termites do have a facial appendage called a "fontanellar gun" that sprays a noxious substance, though it's more of a toxic glue rather than acid.

Added DiffLines:

* XtremeKoolLetterz: The title, when it's spelled as ''Antz'', looks like a "hip" way of spelling "ants". If it's spelled as ''[=AntZ=]'', it's more clear that it's about an ant named Z.

Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut:
** To ''Film/IndependenceDay'', when the kid with the magnifying glass vaporizes a dumb soldier ant who thinks the light is beautiful, a take-off on a similar dialogue. The sound effects are directly from the original ''Film/WarOfTheWorlds''.
** ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'', the scene where they try to drown the workers.
** Any resemblance to ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' during the termite battle scene is a coincidence, according to WordOfGod.
** The film also has strong elements from ''Literature/TheRedBadgeOfCourage''.
** There are several subtle shout outs in dialogue to ''Franchise/StarWars'':
*** "I hope you know what you're doing." "Yeah, me too."
*** "The Colonel is not as understanding as I am."
*** "Aren't you a little short for a war hero?"
*** "Who's the bigger idiot, the idiot or the idiot who gets kidnapped by the idiot?"
