* ArchEnemy: Dodgers is shocked to learn that X-2 doesn't even consider him as his archenemy, as he isn't even on his 10 top list. X-2 then leave to confront his longtime enemy, Dr. Woe. Dodgers spend the whole episode trying to upstage Dr. woe and be on X-2 top 10 list. In the end, it pays off as later in the series, X-2 do acknowledge Dodgers as his arch-nemesis.

* BilingualBonus: The planet "The Menace of Maninsuit" takes place on is called "Ipponno", Pig Latin for "Nippon" (itself Japanese for, well, ''Japan'').

Dodgers. In one episode we get to see inside his mind and he still makes no more sense than before.



* [[HumanPopsicle Duck Popsicle]]: Dodgers' backstory, as fitting for a ComicStrip/BuckRogers parody.



* {{Fanservice}}: Queen Tyr'ahnee is an homage to the pulp trope, "hostile space queen succumbing to the manly Earthling's charms." (Except the Earthling isn't manly and has no charm.)
** The fanservice was turned up for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr0Lm_Q-oj8 her performance of "Blues in the Night" in a strapless dress and arm-length gloves]], parodying Jessica Rabbit's performance in ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. The whistling and catcalling from the audience members parody ''RedHotRidingHood''.
** Then there is the meeting with the assassins, which took place in a sauna for no reason other than to see the queen wearing a form fitting towel.

* FriendlyEnemy: Dodgers and Commander X-2 seem to have this relationship at certain times: X-2 because his courtesy and helpfulness sometimes outweigh his hatred, and Dodgers because he keeps forgetting that what's-his-name over there hates him.
** Also Ignatious "I.Q" High and Queen Tyr'ahnee, who have a civil, sociable chat at a spaceport while their respective flights are delayed.

* GenreSavvy: The Space Cadet almost continuously. Other characters do get flashes of it, even Dodgers.



* HumanPopsicle: Dodgers' backstory, as fitting for a ComicStrip/BuckRogers parody.



* {{Jerkass}}: Dodgers, though he occasionally strays into PetTheDog territory, such as in "The Love of a Father", where he actually cares for the criminal resembling a child he adopts as his son and is even distraught when he loses him. He sometimes even veers into NominalHero territory. What kind of hero disrupts peace talks to end a 200-year-long war just to keep his 'space hero' job from becoming unnecessary?

Added DiffLines:

** The show used a variant which featured a robot (a rare Warner Bros. acknowledgment of WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant) serving as this to Dodgers, to the point of taking a meteor for Dodgers. In two different episodes.
** The Cadet is also no slouch in this department. He keeps Dodgers out of trouble in spite of virtually never getting rewarded for it.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekovsGun: At the beginning of "The Fudd," X-2 mentions that he's terrified of heights, while Dodgers reveals that he's completely illiterate; Cadet mentions that Dodgers returned the literacy tapes he bought for the captain last Christmas. At the end of the episode, X-2 needs to overcome his acrophobia, while Dodgers is the only person able to save the day by reading a document. Thankfully, he remembers the songs from the tapes and is able to read because of them.


Added DiffLines:

* TooDumbToLive: So, so, ''so'' many examples.
** In "I'm Going to Get You, Fat Sucka," Court Muerte hypnotizes Dodgers into becoming his servant, so that the vampire can feast on Cadet's fat. At one point, Dodgers disguises an iron maiden as a bed for Cadet--only to get annoyed at how long it takes the pig to get ready to sleep and demonstrate how easy it is to lie down in bed. Cue AmusingInjuries.
** In this universe, Elmer Fudd is an evil alien with the power to change all sentient beings into mindless clones through a disease called "The Fudd." After successfully infecting the entire populations of Earth and Mars, plus the entire Galactic Protectorate except for Dodgers, Cadet, and X-2, Elmer reveals his master plan: gather all of his Fudd slaves and have them...invade the Sun.

* OmnicidialManiac: Elmer Fudd, who's controlling anyone [[TheVirus transformed by the titular disease]], turns out to be one [[AchievementsInIgnorance entirely by accident]]--after changing nearly every sentient being in the galaxy into a loyal slave, he rounds them all up to ''invade the Sun.'' Yeah.

* StrippingTheScarecrow: In "The Wrath of Kanasta", the eponymous villain finds himself in an old west style resort, so to blend in, he takes a cowboy outfit from a mannequin. ("Just my size!" he quips.)
