** The theme song itself has become a popular meme similar to that of "Spanish Flea" and the pizza theme from ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2''.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The KafkaKomedy that was normal in ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' is turned UpToEleven on this show. While you can easily say that [[{{Jerkass}} Larry is enough of a jackass]] that he deserves plenty of the punishment that comes his way (especially because he doesn't really knows when to back down or tone down the asshole), there are also many examples where the universe just seems to have it against Larry for no reason other than him ''existing'' (let alone just being in the wrong place at the wrong time), and this (plus the typical cast-ful of belligerent assholes that is normal to a Larry David production, including [[AuthorAvatar Larry]] himself, and the terrible things they do) can make it hard to find the fun in the gags, no matter how good the set-up.

* TheArtifact: Leon, who popularity has allowed him to continue staying with Larry long after any story point justifies his existence. After the rest of his family leaves, Leon ignores Larry's hints and continues to freeload off of Larry. Only in one later episode does Larry finally try to get rid of Leon, but his ploy backfires.

* MarySue: Subverted to hell and back. Larry is a deeply flawed character who people, quite rightfully, cannot stand most of the time. While there are occasions that he is sympathetic, he commits acts which are pretty much inexcusable from any viewpoint (he once nearly let Jeff and Susie's daughter drown because he didn't want to damage his blackberry and deceived his cancer-stricken girlfriend into leaving him).
