Recap: Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 04 E 10 Hercules Against The Moon Men
Film watched: Hercules Against The Moon Men

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Awesome McCoolname: After getting muscular arms, Joel advises the Bots to adopt "tough guy names," meaning their last name has to be some kind of hard substance, like Alan Steele from the movie. Tom doesn't quite get it.
  • Call Back: "THERE'S GONNA BE ROCK CLIMBING! AAAAAH!"
    • Unfortunately, although there was very little rock climbing, there was Padding. See To the Pain.
  • Notable Original Music: The Pants Song!
  • The Other Darrin: Crow complains about Hercules now being played by Alan Steele rather than Steve Reeves. Of course, that's because this isn't actually a Hercules movie.
  • Overly Long Gag: The "booby" host segment.
  • Running Gag: "Hey, it's (insert celebrity name)!"
    • The very Roman-inspired mooks being accompanied by Joel and the Bots quipping "Pizza! Pizza!" (referencing Little Caesars Pizza) whenever they appeared on-screen. Becomes a Crowning Moment of Funny when a horde of them mob one character.
      "PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!PIZZA!"
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: The Trope Namer (though the exact line is "She cleans up real nice.").
  • Squick: In-universe, over Hercules' skimpy clothes.
  • To the Pain: "SAAAAAAND STOOOOOORM! DEEEEEEEP HURTING!"
  • Zeroes and Ones: Joel provides the page quote.

*spikes shoot out of wall* "AAAGGGHH!!!"
