* OlderThanTheyThink: The old "That's what she said!" joke is featured prominently in this movie, which came out over a decade before ''Series/TheOffice'' made it a craze in the 2000s. In fact, the joke dates back at least to the 1920s.

Creator/CharltonHeston's memorable cameo as the reminiscing gas station attendant. The whole joke is based on Wayne insisting that they get a good actor even though the part is small.

** It was also done deliberately, earlier, with 'the magic of Chroma-Key!'



* TearJerker: In-universe - [[OneSceneWonder Charlton Heston's performance]] is so awesome that it reduces Wayne to tears.
** This scene [[MemeticMutation saw a lot of posting]] when Heston died, with numerous people saying that Wayne was saying what they wanted to say to Heston at the end: "Thank you."
** The OscarBait [[MemeticMutation I Never Learned To Read]] scene in the original movie, being [[GenreSavvy fully aware of what it was]].
* ToughActToFollow: Second only to ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'', ''Wayne's World'' is considered to be the only genuinely good ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''-based movie. All that followed flopped '''hard''', mostly because they neglected the CharacterDevelopment and just tried to stretch one joke out to 90 minutes. Also like ''Blues Brothers'', this was the only ''SNL'' film to get a sequel, meaning it had to fill its own big shoes.

* ToughActToFollow: Second only While it followed the very well-received ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'' as the second film based on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' characters to ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'', be released, ''Wayne's World'' managed to itself avert the trope. However, it ushered in an string of movies based on hit SNL characters in an attempt to recreate the magic, but they all flopped. Even its own sequel is considered to be the only genuinely good ''Series/SaturdayNightLive''-based movie.

* VindicatedByHistory: ''Wayne's World 2'' was initially seen as the typical sequel fodder and [[ToughActToFollow largely overshadowed by the first film]]. However, recent reviews have found the film to actually be fairly decent, especially in comparison to the [[Film/ItsPat many]] [[ANightAtTheRoxbury lackluster]] ''[[TheLadiesMan SNL]]'' [[Film/MacGruber films]] that followed. At the very least, many think ''Wayne's World 2'' captured the first film's offbeat humor and mostly avoided {{Sequelitis}}.

* FirstInstallmentWins[=/=]{{Sequelitis}}: ''Wayne's World 2'' had a lot to live up to, and it never really became as cherished as the first. Funnily enough, in the first movie, Wayne invokes this trope in conversation.
