This show provides examples of:
Accidental Misnaming: Fred can't ever say Mondavarious' name correctly. Though funny enough he does say it properly once.
Breaking the Fellowship: The gang decides to break up Mystery Inc. and go about their own paths early in the movie. They get better.
Brick Joke: while on the island, it's announced there is a phone call for "Mr. Doo". A Melvin Doo asks if it was for him, but it was for Scooby. Later, when it is announced Scooby will be sacrificed, he panicks and says "Me? Don't you mean Melvin Doo?", pointing at the same guy.
Chekhov's Gun: Subverted. On the plane to Spooky Island, Fred flicks Scooby on the nose to stop him barking at a cat. It doesn't work. It earns him a punch in the face. Later, in the climax, Scooby attempts to do the same thing to Scrappy. That doesn't work either. Scrappy roars in his face.
Played straight with the disco skull and the Daemon Ritus.
"And I would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for you meddling sons of-" (helicopter door is slammed shut)
Deadpan Snarker: Velma. One snark at the beginning leads to Daphne snatching Velma's glasses off her face.
Deconstructive Parody: The film enjoys taking apart the tropes of the Scooby Doo Universe, Daphne getting kidnapped, warning of obviously dangerous and scary locations and examining the roles of the team.
Designated Victim: Deconstructed with Daphne. She is genuinely offended when the gang talk about her always getting kidnapped and uses that as her reason to leave, eventually learning martial arts to overcome this.
The fact that Scooby is particularly important (his soul is the purest one to be absorbed through the Daemon Ritus) are hinted at first of all with the whole thing with the hamburgers in the woods before the castle scene and again when Shaggy and Scooby run into the possessed rock band and possessed-Fred goes, "Get the dog."
"Freaky Friday" Flip: Mystery Inc. minus Scooby after their souls were transferred to different bodies.
Getting Crap Past the Radar: Shaggy mentions that "But you don't need to know what 'Voulez-vous coucher avec moi' means to love that song!" Kinda justified in that it is in a song, but it still means 'Do you want to sleep with me?'.
And finally, this awkward line, spoken by Fred while in Daphne's body: "I can look at myself naked!" Later, Fred-in-Daphne's-body can be seen in the background, groping her own breasts. Also Shaggy-in-Velma's body can be seen trying to look up her own skirt.
The Hero / The Lancer: Deconstructed in both cases with Fred and Velma respectively. Velma is the one who figures out most of the mysteries, yet Fred takes credit for all her plans leaving her as just The Smart Guy. Deleted scenes reveal that Fred attempts to promote a book about himself but fails miserably without the rest of the gang, and that Velma ended up in therapy thanks to her treatment from the others.
Let's Split Up, Gang: The team decides to go off on their own for a while to investigate different aspects of their new mystery.
Logo Joke: A Bite is taken out of the Warner Bros. shield, although you don't see him Scooby's laugh is heard. Then the logo disappears and Scooby's dog tag reading "SD" appears, underneath it says 'A Mystery Inc. Company".
Magic Skirt: Linda Cardellini had her skirt taped to her legs so it wouldn't flip over in the scene where she (as Velma) dangles upside down by one foot in a scaffold chain. This was Warner Bros.' edict to help preserve the "family film" integrity.
Ms. Fanservice: Daphne walks around dressed in plenty of flattering dresses. And Velma finds herself in some revealing beach party gear. There's also a cameo from Pamela Anderson in a sheer white tank top.
Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Emile Mondavarious/Scrappy Doo invited the entire gang of Mystery Inc. to the island when the members had already broken up and went their separate ways previously. This subsequently ends up with all five members meeting each other again, with the Scooby Gang rekindling its relationship, and all five members reverting back to cooperating and acting as a team again. Due to the Big Badsending invitations to all five members in the first place.
Paper-Thin Disguise: Big dogs aren't allowed on the plane so Shaggy dresses Scooby up in a dress, big hat and sunglasses as "Grandma". Velma and Daphne say that no one will fall for it...and then Fred does. The novelisation (written from Velma's point of view) says that the disguise fooled everyone on the plane.
Right Behind Me: The Luna Ghost behind Shaggy as he's trying to explain there's no such thing as monsters. Happens again later on as he and Scooby are having a farting contest. He doesn't notice that Daphne is right behind him.
Who Would Want to Watch Us?: Shaggy mentions how creepy castles always have paintings with eyes that watch you and suits of armor that have guys in it who follow you but stop every time you turn around. Daphne has to ask how many times has it actually happened.
