* SpecialEffectsFailure: In the scene where one of the aliens is disguised as a human girl, she's constantly chewing on gum (as explained later, she needs it to breathe). Later, Martin Short's character flirts with her and puts his finger in her mouth, which she bites off. As he removes his hand, he rips off part of her fake skin, exposing the alien jaw. She is then seen still chewing on the gum. However, the exposed alien teeth remain closed the whole time, while they should be shown chewing. It gives the impression that she is a robot rather then a Martian with a breach on her mask, though knowing the Martians they could very we'll build a robot girl.

** Does the [[spoiler: Martian brain rupture]] from the vibration, frequency and pitch of sound waves from Slim Whitman's yodeling or is the music really just that terrible to them?

** Grandma might not be such a space case - she might just have a uniquely mordant sense of humour.

* {{Complete Monster}}s: Somewhat Played for Laughs. The Martians are evil, unimaginable bastards and they '''enjoy''' that fact. They enact an ultimately pointless, unwarranted, genocidal invasion to lifeforms that did absolutely nothing to intentionally provoke them simply because..."[[ItAmusedMe it amused them]]". Sure, humans are virtually [[HumansAreFlawed flawed]] and [[HumansAreBastards incomprehensibly nasty]], but even they continued to be welcoming and diplomatic to the Martians ''after multiple attacks''

* {{Complete Monster}}s: All of the Martians not only try to exterminate humans and life on Earth, but they '''enjoy''' doing it. They know full well that what they're doing is messed up and [[TheSociopath that's what they love about it]]. Sure, humans, by virtue, are [[HumansAreFlawed flawed]] and [[HumansAreBastards incomprehensibly nasty]], yet, in this case, they're still innocent in that they did absolutely nothing to intentionally provoke Mars and even continued to be somewhat welcoming and diplomatic to the Martians ''after multiple attacks''. Plus, the only seemingly discernible reason the Martians enacted a genocidal invasion in the first place?...because [[ItAmusedMe it amused them]]. It wasn't even necessary, they just "felt like doing it".

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and possibly PeripheryDemographic: Relased a few months after ''Film/IndependenceDay'', the biggest hit of its year, ''Mars Attacks!'' flopped in theatres in the US. It did much better business in Europe and has since become a regular favorite on satellite movie channels.

* NightmareFuel:
** The disembodied, but still alive, heads of two of the main cast.
** The Martians themselves can be very unsettling, especially their skull-like faces.
** Every time somebody gets disintegrated by the Martians; Not helping is the fact that we're always treated to the sight of their charred skeletons afterward.
