* PainfulRhyme: "Blue"'s Rimmer song.

to:

* PainfulRhyme: "Blue"'s Rimmer song. Lampshaded in the extended version where Rimmer sings that he's running out of words that rhyme with his name and hopes the song will play out before he's completely stuck.

* MartyStu: A case of TropesAreNotBad occurs with Ace Rimmer. He's a dashing interdimensional hero, AcePilot, field surgeon, pianist who [[EvenTheGuysWantHim even turns the heads of happily married men]] and all around badass. This is a perfect contrast with the weasly, cowardly Rimmer. Since Chris Barrie had noted that he [[{{Typecasting}} was always playing gits]], this is an InvokedTrope along with PlayingAgainstType.

** In "Back to Reality", it's mentioned that Rimmer was programmed to act like a total prat, to hide the fact he's really a highly intelligent operative. Sounds very familiar to [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine a certain doctor]]...

** And, as we see from an effect outtake in Series 7, Craig Charles by then was actually rather skinny.

* MST3KMantra: How'd we find a traffic cone in deep space? Eh...let's just never mention it.

* AlternateCharacterEnterpretation: The show totters in and out with how much grasp Kryten has of complex human emotions and tact, leaving some ambiguity how much of his insensitivity is [[InnocentlyInsensitive merely caused by his matter of fact analysing]], or him passive aggressively venting his contempt for the other crew mates. This is lampshaded in "Quarantine" where Rimmer dresses down Kryten over his increased emotional growth and SelectiveEnforcement of the Space Corps Directive, accusing his robotic pragmatism to merely be him ObfuscatingStupidity.

** Lister's ordeal when he's stranded alone on [[spoiler: Garbage World, formerly known as Earth. The planet reacts to his presence by [[GaiasVengeance doing its best to kill him]]... a blizzard, raining ''literal'' acid and oil, an earthquake, lightning, fire...]].

** JerkassWoobie: Rimmer, of course. Sure he's a smeghead, but his flaws are bought home to him in the worst ways possible, [[spoiler: first with his holographic duplicate]] then in [[''Better than Life'' where his own self-loathing systematically and ''brutally'' destroys his perfect fantasy world... and then his crewmates']].
