* AnimationBump: Ratburt's animation in the cold opening to "Hunger" is probably the most fluid of the entire series.

* HistoricalDomainCharacter: BenjaminFranklin appears in "Ethics," mainly to tell Dilbert that the Founders conceived America's political system as a big joke. LeonardoDaVinci shows up in "Art" as a Mafioso running the world's "art racket."

Added DiffLines:

* AsYouKnow: Parodied in "The Merger" during the last office meeting. PHB fully explains why the merger collapsed, to which Dilbert responds, "I told you that."
-->'''PHB:''' No side comments during the meeting, please!


Added DiffLines:

** Within the show itself, Dilmom, Ratbert, Asok, and Loud Howard. They appeared occasionally in Season 1, but they appeared in most (if not all) of Season 2 and frequently got multiple scenes.


Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: Dilbert's fear of the mall was caused by his father abandoning him to go to an all-you-can-eat restaurant.


Added DiffLines:

* TheGenericGuy: Ted appears prominently in "[=Y2K=]" and is dubbed as so generic that people who have known him for years couldn't describe him.
-->'''Narrator:''' There may be more than one Ted in the company. No one's sure.


Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHeartwarming: Dilmom says in "The Merger" that she does love Dilbert; she just doesn't like him.


Added DiffLines:

* LikeASonToMe: Parodied in "The Name" when an executive's pet project fails horribly.
-->'''Boss:''' You're like a son to me.\\
'''Executive:''' Uh, you don't have a son.\\
'''Boss:''' That's where I'm going with this.


Added DiffLines:

* MassOhCrap: The main characters' reaction to the ContrivedCoincidence from the first episode listed above.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Metaphorgotten}}: Lampshaded in one episode during an office meeting.
-->'''Dilbert:''' That's a mixed metaphor.\\
'''PHB:''' ''[angrily]'' Yeah? What's so bad about that?\\
'''Dilbert:''' Actually, nothing.

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: The Boss HATES being corrected. Doing so is the one sure-fire way to get him to assign you the worst tasks.


Added DiffLines:

* StupidEvil: The animated version of the boss is a lot dumber than his comic strip counterpart, and a lot of his villainy stems from his incompetence rather than any genuine malice. Sometimes he's actually trying to do something nice but is too much of an idiot to do it correctly.

Added DiffLines:

* FreezeFrameBonus: When Dogbert wants Dilbert to sign a will he's written up in "Tower of Babel", it says that Dogbert will inherit all of Dilbert's possessions.
