: Characters suddenly break into a disco dance without rhyme or reason.
- Straight: Someone starts playing disco music - and suddenly Standard Disco Equipment appears and the characters start dancing.
- Exaggerated: Entire work is "disco-punk", depicting a society that lives and breathes Gratuitous Disco Sequences.
- Downplayed: Disco music starts as a backing to a fight scene, and the heroes beat up the bad guys with disco dance moves.
- Justified: The characters have somehow ended up in a disco revival club.
- Inverted: The work is set in 1970s, with disco all around, and the work has a Gratuitous Big-Band Sequence.
- Subverted: Disco Dan tries to start a disco sequence, but is immediately stopped by other characters.
- Double Subverted: ...But it's only because they want to join in!
- Parodied: The start of a disco sequence in a club is treated like a launch sequence of a nuclear ICBM.
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Averted: The characters find themselves near the Standard Disco Equipment, but no-one is there to start the music, and it goes unused.
- Enforced: "Man, i just love disco! Let's put a disco dance in the story!"
- Lampshaded: ???
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: The Lancer punches the resident Disco Dan before he can start the music.
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: ???
- Implied: The characters walk out of a building saying: "Disco... now that was random."
