* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Wayne, Garth and their crew singing [[Music/{{Queen}} Bohemian Rhapsody]] while driving. Doubles as a SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The film features several, some of them simply for comedic value and others for other reasons. The encounter with [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]] is one example.
** When Benjamin tries to talk to Garth, who's making a robotic hand, Garth acts extremely nervous and eventually tries to pulverize the hand. There's never any explanation for what's going on, and it was originally part of a subplot in which Garth is trying to kill Benjamin.
** Glenn, the manager of Stan Makita's Donuts, has a few bizarre and creepy rants. He never factors into the plot. However, he is incredibly awesome.
** "What are you going to do with these guys?"
*** "Oh nothing really. I just always wanted to open a door to a room where people are being trained like in [[Film/JamesBond James Bond movies]]."
*** "Wicked!"
*** "[[CatchPhrase SHYA!]]" *Closes door*
* TheCatchPhraseCatchesOn: An apparent specialty of Mike Myers, the film popularized a number of slang terms and saying, such as "No way!/Way!", "Schwing!", "Exqueeze me?" and "Shyeah right! And monkeys might fly outta my butt!"
* CrazyAwesome: Glenn (Ed O'Neil's character).
* HilariousInHindsight: Wayne tries to get an Oscar by going hysterical about not learning how to read.[[KateWinslet Somebody]] [[Literature/TheReader accomplished this later on]].
* MemeticMutation: [[SomethingElseAlsoRises "Schwing!",]] [[CreatorWorship "We're not worthy!"]] and "ThatsWhatSheSaid!"
** Who has ever listened to "Bohemian Rhapsody" without headbanging during the guitar solo?
** Really, the movies [[FountainOfMemes spawned]] an ''incredible'' amount of this, ranking right up there with [[Film/BillAndTed Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure]] for the amount of slang it introduced to the cultural landscape.
** No [[LedZeppelin Stairway]]!! [[spoiler:Reference to music store customers over-frequently attempting to play "Stairway To Heaven" by LedZeppelin on the showroom floor when trying new guitars.]]
* OlderThanTheyThink: The old "That's what she said!" joke is featured prominently in this movie, which came out over a decade before ''Series/TheOffice'' did.
* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd lampshades this in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cWGZkK-KsY his review of two video game adaptations for the NES and SNES]].
** WebVideo/PushingUpRoses gave a similar treatment to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy7M19zwpXk the PC version]].
* SignatureScene: ''Everybody'' remembers the Bohemian Rhapsody scene from the first film.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: When Wayne and Cassandra are standing on Benjamin's balcony in the first film, it's very obvious that they're standing in front of a backdrop.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The producers were only able to secure the rights to "Stairway To Heaven" for the original theatrical run. This is why the version you hear Wayne playing on DVD or video sounds absolutely nothing like "Stairway".
* TearJerker: In-universe - [[OneSceneWonder Charlton Heston's performance]] is so awesome that it reduces Wayne to tears.
** This scene [[MemeticMutation saw a lot of posting]] when Heston died, with numerous people saying that Wayne was saying what they wanted to say to Heston at the end: "Thank you."
** The OscarBait [[MemeticMutation I Never Learned To Read]] scene in the original movie, being [[GenreSavvy fully aware of what it was]].
* UnnecessaryMakeover: Garth, briefly, in the second movie.
* TheWoobie: Garth.
