* EnsembleDarkhorse: Patches and Steve the Pirate.
* FridgeLogic: [[spoiler: At the end, Peter owns both Average Joes and Globos. However, there's no indication that his business sense, which was what provided the situation to be exploited by Goodman in the first place, has gotten any better, so really they've just bought themselves some time, and made the inevitable screw-up even bigger. Of course, RuleOfHeartwarming is in full effect]].
** On the other hand, it can be assumed that [[spoiler:Kate could run the company behind closed doors and she is definitely smart enough and responsible enough to keep it in the black. HappyEnding after all.]]
* HarsherInHindsight: Lance Armstrong being stripped of his winnings for blood doping (which is considered cheating) in 2012 and his subsequent confession of the fact in 2013 changes the implications of the scene he appears in.
--> "I'm sure this decision won't haunt you forever."
* HilariousInHindsight: It was funny enough when ESPN debuted "ESPN 3" (five more to go until a "real Ocho"), but in reality, a much smaller, independent network [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America_One beat them to the concept.]]
** TSN, which is ESPN's de facto Canadian sister channel, announced in 2014 that it would launch three new channels, [=TSN3=] through 5. Cue the jokes about it airing programming simulcast from [=ESPN8=].
* MemeticMutation: Lance Armstrong's cameo is now being circulated as a ''joke'' around the Internet due to the athlete recently being stripped of his titles.
** "That's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it pays off for 'em/him/her." when someone does something risky or stupid, especially on Imgur. The use in-context was Cotton pointing out that [[spoiler:Average Joe's was ''forfeiting'' the match.]]
** The most infamous "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball."
*** Followed up by Patches' creed of the 5D's of Dodgeball: Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive, and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Dodge]]!
* RetroactiveRecognition: The Average Joe's member who pines for the ugly Russian on the Cobra team [[Film/{{Avatar}} sure looks more familiar now.]]
** One of the dodgeball is future WWE Women's Champion CandiceMichelle.
* SequelHook: See FridgeLogic above.
* {{Squick}}: Justin's flashback, White at the end of the movie, Owen and Fran in bed and literally licking each others' faces after Peter wins ...
** ... White and the pizza slice.
