* ItGetsBetter: The movie opens slowly; over a half-hour passes before the first Evil Ex appears, even longer before [[BigBad Gideon]] enters the picture.

* InformedAttractiveness: Ramona Flowers. Although said by Scott to be his dream girl (and obviously desired by many other men--[[EvenTheGirlsWantHer and women]]--in the film) and she is played by the very beautiful Creator/MaryElizabethWinstead, it's laid down a little thick, given her "Hot Topic" looks/apparel (which doesn't really set her apart from any other girl in the film) and her usually [[IceQueen aloof, indifferent attitude.]]

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The movie makes it clear that in order for a relationship to work, it takes something more powerful than [[spoiler: {{the Power of Love}}. Namely, the Power of Self Respect, and ThePowerOfFriendship, too.]] On the other hand, it's handed in such sloppy way you can as well assume that all it takes is being an aggressive jerk.

** Scott speaking with his sister [[SnowMeansLove in the snow]] before the climax does seem to have romantic undertones, with Stacy being oddly soft considering she's usually fairly vitriolic to Scott.

* RetroactiveRecognition: The second evil ex is [[Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger Steve Rogers/Captain America!]] Though this is [[AvertedTrope averted]] for those that knew him as [[FantasticFour Johnny Storm]].

* EndingFatigue: Scott goes to Gideon's club, getting past the bouncers with impromptu passwords. He goes inside and makes amends with his band before beating up Gideon's mooks. Then he has to gain the Power of Love and fight Gideon. After that, Knives and Ramona briefly fight so Scott has to break them up and apologize for being a JerkAss. Then Gideon comes back [[spoiler: and kills him. He goes through Sub-space, learns of Ramona's control chip, and uses the one-up he earned earlier to come back.]] He then has to do everything all over again. He gets past the bouncers (this time by punching them instead of going through the passwords), fights off the mooks again, makes amends with his band again, gets the Power of Self Respect, defeats Gideon's demon cheerleaders, beats Gideon, stops a fight between Knives and Romana again, apologizes for being a JerkAss, frees Ramona from Gideon's control, and the three of them beat Gideon again. ''[deep breath]'' Then Gideon sends Nega-Scott after him but that "fight" is at least off-camera. After all that, he goes outside to Knives and Ramona and chooses which one he wants to be with. ''whew''. And all of this takes more than quarter of the whole film.

** Pretty much the entire soundtrack.
** The [[Music/TheProdigy Prodigy]] tune "Invaders Must Die" was featured in the trailers and is dangerously catchy.
** Many have expressed a weird affection for Matthew Patel's out of nowhere Bollywood-style musical number "Slick" as well.
** Black sheep, come home...
** The nightclub fight. From now on, whenever two girls are fighting, try not to imagine that ''thump thump thump'' bass beat.
