* AngstWhatAngst: Mao can still read minds, and implies that it's just as bad as in canon, but he just brushes it off by cheerfully saying, "Alright, let's just get this out here, I can read minds. ''Not'' as fun as it sounds."
* CrazyAwesome: '''''Lelouch'''''.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The inevitable parodies [[OverlyLongGag (plural)]] of the "Nina X Table-kun" scene. One of which is [[SoundtrackDissonance soundtracked]] with [[Disney/{{Aladdin}} "A Whole New World."]] Right after a random gag of Shirley generating a literal tsunami of pee.
-->'''Lelouch:''' Gettin' kicked off the internet for this one.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: A lot (if not all) of the music Purpleeyes uses for his Techno Remix/Music Video Segments/Action Scenes/Post credits bits is pretty damn good and or catchy.
** [[spoiler: "Unbelievable sight (squig), indescriptible feeling..."]].
** [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot If you love me let me go Back to that bar in Tokyo (Chorus) If you love me let me go Back to that bar in Tokyo Where the demons from my past Leave me in peace(ah ah ah anekatips ah) I'll be animating every night The grass will be greener on the other side And the Vampires and Wolves Won't sink their teeth (ah ah ah ah ah)I'm sick of dancing with the beast]]
** [[Music/TheChemicalBrothers ohmygodwhathaveidone]][[spoiler:doitagain]]
* FridgeLogic: The series seems to run on the awareness that the characters are completely insane and the viewer will likely question every action they make when they actually sit back and wonder why they did that instead of practical choices.
** Even the plot can end up as FridgeLogic at times. On first viewing, the behavior of the characters tends to make no sense, and on the whole each episode seems to be a random assortment of clips. But upon rewatching it a couple times, a coherent narrative begins to appear.
* GrowingTheBeard: ''Fairly'' normal at the beginning with a hint of strangeness. It gets progressively weirder as time goes on, most definitively becoming the wacky series it is around Episode 5.
* HilariousInHindsight: The ending of the first episode: "Well, look on the bright side...at least it can't get any weirder." It ''did'' get weirder, and it's all the better for it.
** The "Crazy Psychobitch" joke on Kallen got funnier when her [[Creator/KarenStrassman dub VA]] went on to voice [[LightNovel/FateZero Sola]][[{{Yandere}} -Ui]].
* IdiotPlot: It's amazing how much the characters (especially those in charge of something) are complete buffoons.
* MagnificentBastard: ''[[Anime/OnePiece Sanji]]''.
-->*explosion*
-->Lelouch: What the hell--
-->Kallen: What the hell?
-->Cornelia: What the ''hell!''
-->Suzaku: What the hell?!
-->Sanji: ''Sayonara.''
* MemeticMutation: Call my therapist. Tell him he's a rich man.
** In one episode, Diethard mentions that the underground Japanese Resistance Army location is one of the first things that comes up on google. Thanks to the fans, it WAS around the time of the episode's release... and is still a pretty popular search evidently.

* MostAnnoyingSound: Suzaku is able to produce the sound of a vuvuzela by screaming, Jeremiah is very annoyed by it, to the point where he changes Suzaku's sentence from community service to execution.
* ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs: To Anime/CodeGeass, naturally.
* XMeetsY: It's kind of like if ''Anime/CodeGeass'' was written by the creators of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
