- Jerkass: Taco-Man
- Derek the Brave can be this at times too, especially in the first two episodes of Taco-Man The Game Master.
- Karma Houdini: Taco-Man in his Taco-Man Safety Tips gives kids HORRIBLE advice, sometimes which results in death. He never faces any repercussions for his actions.
- Mood Whiplash: several parts of the Awesome Possum episode have Taco-Man breaking the mood with depressing scenes of real-life footage of polluted/scorched lands, wasted rainforests, and dirty oceans.
- Mr. Exposition: Ben Burrito and Ashley share this role in the Night Trap parody, with Jessica becoming confused by Ashley's habit of clumsily delivering information the two of them already know.
- Ms. Fanservice: Taco-Man The Game Master has Princess Polygon.
- Overused Running Gag: A clip of an old guy from Mad Dog McCree saying, "Hoho, you missed that one. Try another!" every time Taco-Man makes a mistake in a video game.
- And when he finally makes the target, the old man says "Nice shooting! Try another one!"
- Rage Quit: How a few of the Taco-Man Plays A Video Game episodes have ended.

- Shoo Out the New Guy: Zig-zagged in Part 2 of "I've Got a Woody". In order to accept Woody as a new member of his team, he fires Virtual Boy. However, Woody tuns out to be so much of an in-universe example of The Scrappy, that Taco-Man stars to miss Virtual Boy! He gets rid of Woody by sending him to the real world.
- Shower Scene: Taco-Man treats the player of his Night Trap parody to one if he/she traps all the leechers. The scene features Taco-Man in his "Dana" disguise, to the disgust of Ben Burrito.

- Taco-Man: Uh, you know, there is a back door and a door in the living room area.
Taco-Man: Be very, very quiet.
Megan and Cindy: Ahhhhhhhhh!
Megan and Cindy run up the stairs.
Taco-Man: Oh, why can't I use the stair trap on the girls?

- What the Hell, Player?: Ben Burrito scolds players of the Night Trap parody if they let Taco-Man or any of the girls die. Subverted if the player lets Taco-Man survive long enough to get killed by Sarah, as Ben Burrito ponders taking over Taco-Man's show. Averted when Taco-Man lets the leechers kill Megan, as neither he nor the player receive a scolding afterward.
- Wholesome Crossdresser: Taco-Man as Dana in his Night Trap parody, and Taco-Croft in his Tomb Raider review.
- Writing Around Trademarks: Poked at for laughs in Taco-Man's review of Bart vs. The Space Mutants, which features thinly veiled parodies of the The Simpsons (known as the Sicksons).
