- Angst? What Angst?: Mao can still read minds, and implies that it's just as bad as in canon, but he just brushes it off by cheerfully saying, "Alright, let's just get this out here, I can read minds. Not as fun as it sounds."
- Better Than Canon: Suzaku is seen as more enjoyable in this version than the original.
- Crazy Awesome: Lelouch.
- Suzaku at times, given how often he runs head-first into situations without any idea as to what's going on and manages to kick ass while doing so.
- Crosses the Line Twice: The inevitable parodies (plural) of the "Nina X Table-kun" scene. One of which is soundtracked with "A Whole New World." Right after a random gag of Shirley generating a literal tsunami of pee.
Lelouch: Gettin' kicked off the internet for this one.
Lelouch: Suzaku!(Beat)Lelouch: You're absolutely right.
- Suzaku telling Lelouch it would suck to be blind. Then blind and crippled. Then blind and crippled because your mom got shot to death. All in the presence of someone who had all of that happen to her.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: A lot (if not all) of the music Purpleeyes uses for his Techno Remix/Music Video Segments/Action Scenes/Post credits bits is pretty damn good and or catchy.
- "Unbelievable sight (squig), indescriptible feeling...".
- If you love me let me go Back to that bar in Tokyo (Chorus) If you love me let me go Back to that bar in Tokyo Where the demons from my past Leave me in peace (ah ah ah anekatips ah) I'll be animating every night The grass will be greener on the other side And the Vampires and Wolves Won't sink their teeth (ah ah ah ah ah) I'm sick of dancing with the beast
- Fridge Brilliance: Episode 15 is titled "Identity Crisis on Three Earths". During the episode, there are a few indications that Luffy is around during this episode. Six days later, in None Piece episode 7, Luffy goes through a portal into the Soul Eater world, and the next time we see him, he has a sniper rifle aimed at Lelouch. Seven months later, we get Soul Whatever: "Third Earth", which shows us (amongst other things) what Luffy was doing. Additionally, it ties in the alternate version of Episodes 5-7 of None Piece. The title "Third Earth" ties in with Episode 15's title and indicates that all three episodes were planned from the start.
- Fridge Logic: The series seems to run on the awareness that the characters are completely insane and the viewer will likely question every action they make when they actually sit back and wonder why they did that instead of practical choices.
- Even the plot can end up as Fridge Logic at times. On first viewing, the behavior of the characters tends to make no sense, and on the whole each episode seems to be a random assortment of clips. But upon re-watching it a couple times, a coherent narrative begins to appear.
- Growing the Beard: Code MENT is fairly normal for an abridged series at the beginning with a hint of strangeness. It gets progressively weirder as time goes on, most definitively becoming the wacky series it's known for being around Episode 5.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The ending of the first episode: "Well, look on the bright side...at least it can't get any weirder." It did get weirder, and it's all the better for it.
- Idiot Plot: It's amazing how much the characters (especially those in charge of something) are complete buffoons.
- Magnificent Bastard: Sanji.
*explosion*Lelouch: What the hell—Kallen: What the hell?Cornelia: What the hell!Suzaku: What the hell?!Sanji: Sayonara.
- Memetic Mutation: Call my therapist. Tell him he's a rich man.
- Most Annoying Sound: Suzaku is able to produce the sound of a vuvuzela by screaming, Jeremiah is very annoyed by it, to the point where he changes Suzaku's sentence from community service to execution.
- Signature Scene: "I'm at soup!"
- This Is Your Premise on Drugs: Even by abridged series standards, the show is pretty weird and can only be described as Code Geass on crack. Almost everyone is crazy and/or stupid, a lot of comedy bits are completely random (e.g. the soup conversation), and Lelouch constantly stumbles his way to victory.
