* LesYay: Subverted when Eddie attempts to [[CasanovaWannabe pull a bird]] whilst disguised as "that bird from the abbatoir who looks like Ted Rodgers".
* MagnificentBastard: [[MeaningfulName Dick Head]], the landlord of the local pub. Richie and Eddie try to scam him out of his money and/or booze various times throughout the series, but Dick always turns it back on them in some brilliant style.
* NightmareFuel:
** Richie coming face to face with "Death" [[spoiler:(it's actually Eddie in a costume)]] in "[[{{Recap/BottomApocalypse}} Apocalypse]]". While it's still PlayedForLaughs, the music that plays during this scene, along with the frightening sound effects and the fact that "Death" appears as a giant with his robe covering his face makes this quite chilling. This all happens on the night that Richie was told by a fortune teller he would die on.
--> '''Richie:''' Oh my God...the moon's up! She was right. She was right! '''''Oh my God!'''''
*** Even before this, there was the sounds of the front door creaking open and the loud footsteps coming towards Richie's room.
** The sound of the burglars breaking into Richie and Eddie's flat in "[[{{Recap/BottomBurglary}} Buglary]]". Talk about ParanoiaFuel.
** The part towards the end of "[[{{Recap/BottomSOut}} 's Out]]" where a shadowy figure is seen lurking outside Richie and Eddie's tent.
** "[[{{Recap/BottomHole}} Hole]]" in general. Imagine being stuck on a 350ft Ferris wheel that's going to be blown up in just a few hours. And that's also falling apart while you're on it.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The first Bottom Live show, which is about Eddie trying to kill off Richie for his inheritance money, features a touching last minute goodbye between the two, which is way less funny since the sudden tragic death of Rik Mayall.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Possibly subverted with the live shows since they are able to get away with it.
* HarsherInHindsight: The second to last scene in "Digger" in which Richie has what looks like a heart attack (it's actually his kidneys and bladder failing on him) is a lot less funny when you remember how Rik Mayall died...

* CrowningMomentOfFunny:
** Even critics of the crude style of Rik and Adrian's comedy admit that the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5p-YQkbe_s Gas Man sequence]] in the episode "Gas" is hysterical.
** Eddie's brilliant ActorAllusion during the jail scene in the second live show:
--> Are you finished? It's just that I'm beginning to understand why Creator/StephenFry fucked off. [[note]] Earlier that year Rik Mayall and Stephen Fry had done the play "Cell Mates" together, where Fry had suddenly left in a fit of depression.[[/note]]

* FridgeLogic: When Eddie and Richie Catch a burglar they sellotape him to a chair since the have no rope, However when the plan backfires they are tied to chairs with rope.
