Tropes Luke Ski has invoked include the following:
- Album Filler: The Gothsickles version of "House Party at Arkham Asylum" on Baconspiracy and tracks 9-13 on Worst Album Ever also all of the spoken word skits that are specific to an album (unless I find a trope more appropriate to put these on)
- Album Title Drop: The primary reason why "88 Lines about 44 Simpsons" was included on Worst Album Ever
- Anti-Christmas Song: Parts of "It's a Fanboy Christmas" and "It's a Fanboy Christmas II" invoke this. Also the introduction by "Gilbert" to "Christmas at Hogwarts" on Worst Album Ever
- Bacon Addiction: His song "Bacon" is an example of this.
- Dance Sensation: "The Spongy Dance" is a parody of Spongebob Square Pants and "The Humpty Dance"
- Drunken Song: A skit on Baconspiracy treats Jonathan Coulton's "Re: Your Brains" as this.
- Villain Song: "House Party at Arkham Asylum" features The Joker rapping about his and other Rogues Gallery villains' plans to mess up the Justice League.
- Worst Whatever Ever: He has an album called Worst Album Ever.
- In reference to the above, his friends put together a tribute album called Worst Tribute Ever.
