The Mystery Science Theater 3000 presentation contains these tropes:
- Fan Nickname: Maciste becomes "My Cheesesteak", as noted below.
- Holding the Floor: Milana's excruciatingly long dance to stall for time.Kermes: The gods thank you, Milana.Servo: Now GET OUT!!!!!!
- Lady Mondegreen: In-universe, Mike and the Bots mishear Maciste's name as "My Cheesesteak", which becomes a Running Gag.
- Living Emotional Crutch: Frank can't stand being apart from Nummy, and it turns out the reverse is also true.
- Made of Iron: Colossus/Maciste takes an arrow to the upper chest/shoulder, but seems to walk it off after a few minutes.Crow: Luckily, this was before death had been invented.
- Notable Original Music: The Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter song, by TV's Frank.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter, who is designed by Dr. Forrester to pacify victims through Cuteness Proximity... until Dr. F is Hoist by His Own Petard in the end.
