* {{Anvilicious}}: War Is Bad, kids. [[ThePowerOfLove "Make love, not war." Making love is much more fun]].
** SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Korben's response to Leelo's HeroicBSOD about why life is worth saving in spite of things like war.
* BaseBreaker
** Ruby Rhod. So much so that Empire Magazine voted Him ''The most annoying character in Film History''. So a base-breaking [[TheScrappy Scrappy.]]
** The Diva, whose performance is either CrowningMusicOfAwesome or a BigLippedAlligatorMoment, depending on who you ask.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: See Awesome.TheFifthElement
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: See Funny.TheFifthElement
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: See AwesomeMusic.{{Film}}
%%* CultClassic
* HeartwarmingMoments - The little loving smile that appear's on Corben's face when he realizes his mom is on the phone, even though she is already in the middle of a thorough rant complaining about her son. It's just nice to see a son loving his mother, and enjoying talking...er...listening....to her, despite the fact that she keeps criticizing him.
* HilariousInHindsight: The multipass, a machine-readable all-purpose identification document? [[http://gizmodo.com/london-will-start-testing-fifth-element-style-multipass-1465894545 It might be coming sooner than you think it is.]]
%%* LoveToHate: Zorg.
* MemeticMutation
** Leeloo Dallas Moool-tii-paass!
** '''"GIMME DE CASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHH!"'''
** Aziz, '''LIGHT!!'''
** BZZZZZZZZZZZZ!.
** "Green?" "Supergreen."
** "Anyone else want to negotiate?"
* MostAnnoyingSound: Ruby Rhod's continuous, high-pitch scream during the gunfight. It goes on ''forever''.
** What about in the end of the gun fight where he screamed LOUDER THAN AN EXPLOSION?!
*** FridgeBrilliance: Ruby is still wearing his microphone, so his screams are AMPLIFIED as the show was being broadcast throughout the hotel.
* OneSceneWonder: The alien opera diva.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: A spectacular example. ''The Fifth Element'' PS1 game by the creators of ''VideoGame/NightmareCreatures'' landed on several worst-of lists that year. It got the first ''half-disc out of five'' rating in the ''Official US PlayStation Magazine''. Also counts as a PortingDisaster since the PC version got much better reviews.
* SoBadItsGood: The film is not bad per se, but the whole is far, ''far'' greater than the sum of its parts.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: Either because of shoddy editing or fun, the "unbreakable" glass container Leeloo breaks out of clearly has a nice circle of breakaway glass, visible for at least a second before she actually punches it.
** The black stuff running down Zorg's head is creepy and all, but it ''really'' looks like chocolate syrup, especially when smeared.
* WhatAnIdiot: No one thinks to tell the police that they are chasing an incredibly valuable lab subject that needs to be preserved. As a consequence she is nearly killed when a trigger-happy cop duo decides to shoot Corben's car down on the mere suspicion of being a car thief.
* WTHCastingAgency: Tiny Lister, President of the World. Bwa?
** And he doesn't get [[{{Friday}} a scene with Chris Tucker?]]
