* CrossesTheLineTwice: The scene where the zombie eats Angel is written like a rape scene. He knocks her unconscious, rips off her clothes and flings her onto Bert Miller's bed. And when he begins eating her, he seems unusually focused on her sexual organs and breasts.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: The first thing that comes up if you Google ''The Return of the Living Dead'' are shots of Linnea Quigley dancing naked on a tomb.



* EnsembleDarkhorse: Tarman, who could be considered the mascot for the series as a whole. He is also the only character to have a toy made of him.
* FirstInstallmentWins: The first movie is by far more well known than the other four.
* HellIsThatNoise: Near the end of the movie, when the zombies mad dash to the barracade, there is a sound that they make that's so loud it's drowning out the phone call the Police Chief and Burt who was just trying to warn them about the approaching Zombies.



* UncannyValley: When they finally call the military number on the Trioxin Barrels in the first film. The main guy took it surprisingly well even though the people were responsible doomed an entire town. [[spoiler: Subverted since the military was planning on dropping an A-bomb on them civilian and zombie alike.]]
