* ClassicallyTrainedExtra[=/=]WTHCastingAgency: A lot of older actors can be found, desperately looking for work.
* MemeticMutation: Aside from all the usual mockery reserved ''for'' the company. ''Film/{{Sharknado}}'' has become a big Internet sensation in and of itself.
* {{Narm}}
** Sometimes NarmCharm, depending on the movie.
* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: After Creator/{{Universal}} [[http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/universal-sues-the-asylum-over-american-battleship-asylum-thankful-for-press sued them]] over their ''Film/{{Battleship}}'' mockbuster ''American Battleship'' (which was later renamed ''American Warships'' and given new cover art), The Asylum responded by thanking Universal for the press... after mocking and insulting Universal's movie. One must admit, for all their lack of class and talent, The Asylum certainly doesn't lack balls.
-->“The timing of Universal’s recently filed lawsuit coincides with mixed reviews of its big-budget film, ''Battleship'' -- the first movie based on a board game since ''Film/{{Clue}}''. Looking for a scapegoat, or more publicity, for its pending box-office disaster, the executives at Universal filed this lawsuit in fear of a repeat of the box office flop, ''Film/JohnCarter of Mars''. The Universal action is wholly without merit and we will vigorously defend their claims in Court. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Nonetheless, we appreciate the publicity.]]”
** A few months later, this was subverted when Creator/WarnerBros sued The Asylum, with [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-age-hobbits-blocked-20121210,0,6595906.story similar results to Universal's suit]], over ''Film/TheHobbit'' mockbuster ''Age of the Hobbits''. The Asylum film had to be renamed ''Clash of the Empires'' and would not see the light of day for more than two months. ''An Unexpected Journey'' got far more critical respect and was a major box office hit vis-ŕ-vis ''Battleship''.
* SoBadItsGood: Especially their "[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Some Giant Monster vs. Some Other Giant Monster]]" movies, which have a cult following.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: The standard quality for these movies; but it really says something when both the director and VFX provider of ''Transmorphers'' (Leigh Scott and Synapse FX, respectively) say the effects are garbage.
* StockFootageFailure: In some films you could make a drinking game out of how many times they reuse stock footage. ''American Warships'' is a prime example.
** It's even better if you watch certain movies back-to-back, as stock footage reuse is done across movies as well. ''The Terminators'' main control building is a Japanese government building in ''Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus''; not to mention the sonar/radar/space GPS screens being exactly the same.
* TheyJustDidntCare: It's clearly obvious by the making of features that they put almost no effort in their films and are only out to make a quick buck.
