* {{Anvilicious}}: Charlie Brooker's never been one for subtlety, but this is extreme even by his standards. However, that's not to say that [[TropesAreTools you can't enjoy the episodes despite that.]] Plus, {{some anvils need to be dropped}}.
* AscendedFridgeHorror: The whole point of the series is to apply this trope to technological possibilities.
* CompleteMonster: [[YMMV/BlackMirrorRobertDaly Robert Daly]] & [[YMMV/BlackMirrorBlackMuseum Rolo Haynes]]. See those pages for details.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Nothing will ever turn out well for anyone, so why bother?
** This came into play in an interesting manner after the release of Season 3, regarding "San Junipero", a BreatherEpisode between two extremely dark episodes. Though it was critically acclaimed and has a sizable fandom of people who find it one of the show's best episodes, it wasn't immune to criticism from other fans who found it [[TastesLikeDiabetes too saccharine]] to fit the rest of the show. The episode still had some depressing moments, but it goes to show that there are many people who watch the show specifically ''because'' of how dark it gets.
** The show also subverted this in Season 4, particularly with the fates of the protagonists in "USS Callister" and "Hang the DJ".
** Fully exploited in "Black Museum," where Charlie Brooker's AuthorAvatar is a sadistic monster spreading chaos for fun and profit, lacking any kind of human empathy for the stories he tells. Season 4 also includes ''two'' (arguably three) episodes with straight-up happy endings.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** The show has a pretty big following in China, where the series has been subject to rave reviews, including the claim that it's "better than a masterpiece". Also lead Chinese bloggers to dub surreal tech-related events "Black Mirror Moments".
** Something similar happened in Brazil after Season 3, when the series became popular in the country, with the coining of the expression "dude, that's so Black Mirror!".
** It's also apparently quite popular in Hollywood.
** Not to mention the ''huge'' following it got in all of America after Creator/{{Netflix}} acquired the rights and cranked out a much-beloved third series.
* GrowingTheBeard: While the series was already considered good, it really came into its own in the third season, which included what many consider to be the best episode of the entire series: "San Junipero".
* HarsherInHindsight: "San Junipero" was happy? The stories of "Black Museum" show the horror that people had to go through in order to make that technology possible.
* MemeticMutation:
** In Brazil, "Isso é tão Black Mirror" ("This is so Black Mirror"), said in reaction to a strange or surreal event.
*** Similarly, "This episode of Black Mirror sucks" in English speaking online circles when something in real life seems dystopian.
** The "just like Black Mirror" meme in the UK (typically used in the same vein as "[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]] was not an instruction manual") took on a very meta meaning in the wake of "[=PigGate=]" - an event that bore striking resemblance to the very first episode of the show - leading to Charlie Brooker himself using a version of the meme on Twitter.
* MisaimedFandom: Join any online discussion about Black Mirror, and you will find at least one person that subscribes to the "[[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman digital copies are just code, even if they're self-aware]]" point-of-view espoused by the series' [[RootingForTheEmpire villains to justify abusing and torturing the copies]].
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Jem (Tuppence Middleton) from "White Bear" is known best as Riley in ''Series/Sense8''.
** Creator/DanielKaluuya played the main character of Bing in "Fifteen Million Merits". While his performance in the episode was properly acclaimed at the time, he reached a new level of stardom when he starred as Chris in the breakout hit ''Film/GetOut2017'' and earned an Oscar nomination.
** Selma (Creator/HannahJohnKamen) from "Fifteen Million Merits" is Dutch in ''Series/{{Killjoys}}''.
** Nish (Letitia Wright) from "Black Museum" is Shuri in ''Film/BlackPanther''.
* SignatureScene: Given the fact the show is an anthology, each episode has its most memorable moment, most of which are [[GutPunch for disturbing reasons]]. But when it comes to the show overall, the one moment most fans agree they will never forget is [[spoiler: the Prime Minister [[NauseaFuel having sex with a pig]]]] from “The National Anthem.”
** The PlotTwist of “Shut Up and Dance” is also extremely memorable. And as usual, [[DownerEnding not for good reasons]].
* UncannyValley: A big part of how the series gets its creepy, unsettling vibe.
** Many of the episodes are set in a reality very similar to our own, many featuring technology that is about TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, while others (most prominently "The National Anthem") is based on the use of technology that is already available in the present. That's the main source of FridgeHorror.
** It's probably intentional, but in "The Waldo Moment" for all that Waldo is clearly an exaggerated blue cartoon bear, he's still ''incredibly'' creepy to look at and listen to. [[spoiler: And that's even before he becomes the symbolic figurehead for what's hinted to be a covert global fascist / authoritarian movement.]]
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHgEJeINo-Y second series trailer]] starts off as a parody of iPhone / iPad-style commercials, but even before the 'gritty' imagery starts being threaded through, the fake and hollow StepfordSmiler nature of the shiny happy people using the technology is increasingly creepy enough by itself. There's also a computer generated voice that is modified to sound almost, but not quite, like a man's voice, making the repeated mantra of '[Something] more' delivered in a blandly emotionless voice gradually unsettling.
