* CrazyAwesome: The reason they get away with some of their heists is that their plans are so over the top that the police fails to see them coming, like that time their escape vehicle from a skyscraper was ''a plane''
** Hitomi getting on the passing plane [[{{Beat}} left the police so stunned they couldn't move]].
*** Even more than her sisters, to the point that her escape plans during solos have been described as "choosing the most impossible and dangerous escape route". Careful planning and stunning agility enables her to escape with the loot and her life every time.
* EarWorm:
** The French opening song. "Cat's Eye, signé Cat's Eye..."
** Hell, both of the original Japanese openings are catchy as well as the ending songs.
** The Italian Theme Song for sure; " O O O, Occhi Di Gatto, O O O, Occhi Di Gatto..."
** "Come on, you hot stuff man! Hold me tight!"
* EvenBetterSequel: The second season is even better compared to the first season.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The series is extremely popular in Europe but hardly known in the US. And in Japan, although regarded as a classic, its notoriety remains limited as well.
* TestosteroneBrigade: The show has a ''large'' male fanbase for featuring three attractive, mysterious and kickass {{action girl}}s.

* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMoments Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: General finally getting the upper paw on the evil troll and sending him flying straight into a box fan. Crosses with [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]] when General does this by switching a record player to spin too fast for the troll to cling to it, so that the climax is scored with Music/ThePolice running at 78 RPM.
* [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Crowning Moment of Heartwarming]]: General hopping up and giving the sleeping Amanda a kiss, and getting a big hug in return, provides a most upbeat ending to a Stephen King movie. D'awww.
* HarsherInHindsight: Try watching the Quitter's Inc. segment after reading King's other short story, "The Ten O' Clock People", where balancing how much you smoke allows you to see the Bat-people.
* HilariousInHindsight: Mike Starr would later play an [[spoiler: eventually-offed]] henchman ''again'' in ''Film/DumbAndDumber''.
* NightmareRetardant: Rare in a Stephen King film; the miniature troll is supposed to be a gruesome little beast, and certainly [[GrossUpCloseUp looks the part]], but then Creator/FrankWelker's unmistakable voice comes out of it. It significantly tones down the NightmareFuel.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Charles Dutton in his first role, as a thug in "The Ledge."
* ShockingSwerve: Averted. The original planned ending was to reveal that [[spoiler:General was EvilAllAlong, and he suffocates Amanda by stealing her breath,]] which would have turned his entire arc into a nonsensical ShootTheShaggyDog story packed with FridgeLogic ([[spoiler:he follows a telepathic plea for help halfway across the country and battles an evil troll to protect a little girl, just so he could kill the kid himself?]]). Thankfully, this didn't make it into the finished film.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: [[spoiler: It's all too obviously a cartoon Cressner falling off the ledge.]]
* WhatAnIdiot: Dick still sneaks in a cigarette after being warned of the consequences by Quitters, Inc. and shown compelling proof that they're absolutely ''not'' fucking around with their threats. Luckily, he wises up after they make good on the first one.
