* ConspiracyKitchenSink: A whole crapton of conspiracies are in effect in the series, ranging from the Secret Ruling Class of which Dogbert is a key member, to Comp-U-Comp, to Dogbert being Deep Throat and in cahoots with a large concerns that manufactures the news, to the company having planned the JFK assassination, and NASA covering up the existence of aliens. It's almost like a conspiracy parade.

It's almost like a conspiracy parade. Other than Dogbert being involved in several of them, they don't interact at all.

** In the episode where the team is trying to get the company mainframe (an ancient COBOL monstrosity that they should have migrated from a decade before) y2k compliant he doesn't think the year 2000 is at all relevant; the TurnOfTheMillennium is technically 2001 after all.

* ImColdSoCold: Used in the episode ''Holiday''. During the Dogbert Day parade, Dilberts obnoxious co-worker, the aptly named Dick, who has spent the entire episode making Dilbert even more miserable than usual, is crushed along with his equally obnoxious SUV by Dogberts giant parade float. As he lies in the wreckage, he utters this trope. Dilbert, who is watching the parade on TV with his mother, [[CrossesTheLineTwice remarks that the holidays are a magical season]].

* AdaptationalHeroism: ''Hero'' is stretching it, but the Pointy-Haired Boss is a good deal less mean in the series than he was in the comic. The series focuses more on his CloudCuckooLander qualities. Still has his moments of spite though, he IS a manager after all.

** Surprisingly, Alice seems susceptible to this trope. In the same episode mentioned above she marries two death row inmates while they are being prepped for execution, only to lose interest in one when he's found to be innocent. She also falls hard for Bob Bastard, even though he treats Alice like dirt and its shown in Bobs flashback that his transformation into a jerk made him irresistible to women who previously scorned him at every opportunity.

* MortonsFork: Dogbert bets Dilbert $20 that it doesn't feel good to give and to settle the bet he asks Dilbert to give him $40 and tell him if it feels good. Dilbert refuses because it wouldn't feel good and it's only when he pays Dogbert the $20 that he realizes he agreed to an unwinnable bet.

* DiplomaticImpunity: Dogbert becomes the ambassador to Elbonia so he can follow Dilbert and make sure he doesnt get himself killed. He of course takes the opportunity to loot the country with impunity.

-->'''Dogbert''': I can't believe no-one wanted this job.
