* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: A very debatable instance. B.O.B. sees the tomato and desert topping that mutated into him as his parents. He consistently refers to the tomato, the thing that had something stuck into it, as the mother.

* HilariousInHindsight: In one scene one of the President's advisors says: "In these situations I think to myself, what would Oprah Winfrey do?" Years later, Oprah would be briefly considered by the media to run for the 2020 Democratic party presidential nomination (and didn't end up running)

* UncannyValley: The stylized inhuman "Monsters" are a bit easier to watch than the actual humans.

* UncannyValley: The human characters all have realistically rendered skin which clashes with their stylized inhuman "Monsters" are a bit easier to watch designs, making them come off as more creepy looking than the actual humans.monsters.

* WhatAnIdiot: Derek dumps Susan for the sake of his career without considering the worldwide fame their continued relationship would bring him, not to mention the millions of dollars in book deals and movie rights. Sure, he'd need a raincoat to have any hope of ever pleasing her, but it's still a very stupid decision from someone who's already been characterized as a selfish asshole. [[spoiler:He ''does'' put things together, sort of, when he forgives her and offers to take her back at the end. Of course mentioning that he was offered a network slot if he got an exclusive interview in the next sentence made Susan doubt his sincerity]]. Letting that detail slip only reinforced his stupidity.

!!Tropes for the series

* DesignatedHero: Most of the time the titular monsters come across as idiotic xenophobic jerks, and there are several occasions where the conflict of an episode brought about by the monsters being assholes or just being plain stupid.
* HilariousInHindsight: The Internet (who is actually an alien) constantly uses old and dead memes. This would be a groan-inducing attempt at being [[WereStillRelevantDammit relevant]]...if not for the brief resurgence of extremely old memes at the time, making the episode look relevant ''and'' seem like a parody of current events.

** Also, the entire Axel F scene, which is basically there because it's [[RuleOfFunny hilarious]].

* BadassDecay: In-universe: the Missing Link apparently once held his own against the navy, the national guard and some baywatchers. [[spoiler:Until he beats up about thirty clones in hand-to-tentacle combat, that's ''very hard'' to believe]].
