Tropes associated with Girl Talk:
- Digital Piracy Is Okay: When the first two albums were leaked into Napster and Limewire, Gillis said it was exciting.
- All of his albums are available in a pay-as-you-like system.
- Early Installment Weirdness: His first album, Secret Diary, was a straight glitch/experimental mashup. By Unstoppable, the sound became more of his current claim to fame.
- Sampling: This makes up his whole album career, but they sound good.
- All Day uses 372 individual samples.
- Special Guests: Busta Rhymes, Juicy J, E-40 and Too $hort at the 2014 Coachella performance.
- Shout-Out: The cover to his first album, Secret Diary◊, is a re-creation of a board game called... Girl Talk.
