* ActorAllusion: Occasionally some parodies, in an effort to show a character doing something without the use of their respective movie, will use footage of other projects which involved the actor who played them.
** Interestingly, two different characters from two unrelated series were played by Creator/RodSteiger. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lNMtMLWgyM This video pokes fun at it]]
** This was also done with Creator/ShaileneWoodley, as she both played the role of Felicity Merriman in ''An American Girl Adventure'' and Alex King in ''The Descendants''. Naturally, someone [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PL2DPsQqNyo had to make a parody out of it]]. What's even bizarre was that of Felicity wearing modern clothing, in stark contrast to what she wore in the late 1700s.
* ApprovalOfGod: In a 2010 interview with ''New York'' magazine, ''Film/{{Downfall}}'' director Oliver Hirschbiegel found the parodies funny, and around the time of the interview saw 145 of them.
* FanCommunityNicknames: The people who make the parodies are known as Untergangers, which is derived from ''Der Untergang'', the German title of ''Film/{{Downfall}}''.
* FanNickname: At least one given to each character.
** Hitler: Dolfy, Shitler, Mein Failure
** Günsche: Stupid Giant
** Jodl: Baldy, Baldilocks, Mr. Clean, [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Uncle Fester]], Bald Fuck
** Burgdorf: Fast-Talking Boozing Burgdorf
** Krebs: Krebs the Map Pointer
** Goebbels: [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse Dr. Skeletor]]
** Mohnke: Bonkers, Mohnkey
** Fegelein: Anything with the prefix Fegel-, F-man
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Most Untergangers would resort to downloading scenes from the film, or the whole film itself, in lieu of buying the original, unsubtitled German release. It's pretty much the same case with the spinoff parodies as getting scenes from lesser-known titles legitimately is a chore in itself.
* MissingEpisode: Many parodies have been lost for numerous reasons including the creators being MIA or not having a backup for when one of their videos gets taken down.
* RecycledScript: The parodies' depiction of Mallory would later become the basis for Unterganger [[Tropers/JohnAlexanderHitchcock HitchcockJohn]] to introduce the character of Firecracker in ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG''. Firecracker (which came from a nickname Juan gave Mallory before learning his real name in his original film) took the idea of a psychotic demolitions expert with a coat full of explosives and ran it UpToEleven. Sadly, it didn't turn out quite as successful.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: ''Film/{{Downfall}}'''s distributor Constantin Films blocked the videos from Website/YouTube at one point, though some of them are back up, as parody was ruled fair use. As stated above, the director actually enjoyed them.
* SequelGap: HRP released "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGxtv3UZZFc Hitler and the return of the helium slow motion problem]]" five years after [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gytz_FB-_xc the original]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** After [=YouTuber=] Brandon Hardesty made [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JpmvtPXQR4 his own Bunker Scene reenactment]], he got requests to release it again without subtitles [[LoopholeAbuse so parodies could be made without using the film's footage]]. He did so, but the blocks ended around that time, so it was only used [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Upcr699_mo for one crossover]].
** Some Untergangers released "parody outtakes" videos which featured parodies that are scrapped or never released.
