* CrazyAwesome: Mentok.
** Harvey actually being effective ''as a superhero'' in the last episode.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: ''Whoooooo... is the man in the suuuuuit?''
** So awesome that it ''spawned a television show.'' Supposedly the only reason the show exists is because the creator improvised the theme song at some Williams Street party as a joke. They really liked it.
** Also the musical interlude in Blackwatch Plaid.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Phil Ken Sebben and Reducto. Both voiced by Stephen Colbert. The Bear, as well.
* HarsherInHindsight: In the Jetsons episode, Judy lies dead from exhaustion and coyotes appear to snatch her body. This may seem harsh now that her voice actress Creator/JanetWaldo passed away just recently.
* HilariousInHindsight: In ''Guitar Control'', which aired around election season 2004, Phil runs for President of the United States. His voice actor, Creator/StephenColbert, would go on to do the same by the time the next election rolled around.
** ''Beyond the Valley of the Dinosaurs'': A [[Film/HotTubTimeMachine Hot Tub Time Machine]], anyone?
* MemeticMutation: Ha ha! ...DoubleEntendre.
** [[CrowdedCastShot EVERYONE GET IN HERE]].
** Did ya get that thing I sent ya?
*** ...IN MY PANTS.
* ScapegoatCreator: Stephen Colbert; after retooling the show to focus on his characters and their exploits, the show fell apart when he bailed upon it and was quickly cancelled. He also holds the blame for the failure of the Harvey Birdman video game, which used the popular Phoenix Wright game engine. Most reviews of the game pretty much focused exclusively on his refusal to voice his characters and the piss poor replacement voices Capcom had to scramble to get to replace him, in attacking the game
* SerialNumbersFiledOff: The game based on it is very much like ''Franchise/AceAttorney''. Then again, they were both made by Capcom, [[AffectionateParody so it makes sense]]. Kind of.
** Parodied in an episode when Harvey points out how many cartoons followed the mold of ScoobyDoo, complete with barely altered characters.
* {{Squick}}: Phil Ken Sebben lusting after Birdgirl. He is repeatedly told the truth but doesn't believe it. Near the end of the episode where he and Birdgirl are to be married [[spoiler:he looks out over the crowd and decides "...there... might... have... been... someone... else... (he)... was... meant... to... be... with". Birdgirl's [[{{Squick}} aunt]] Phyllis, Phil's [[BrotherSisterIncest sister]]]]!
** Not to mention how [[spoiler: Aunt Phyllis looks just like Phil with a blonde wig and [[GagBoobs very large boobs]] in a dress. Yes, the eyepatch and mustache too]].
*** Boobs that [[{{Gainaxing}} wobble]] audibly.
** When he finally does understand who Birdgirl is (in the last episode) he is utterly disgusted and disappointed in her for trying to get in to his pants. Especially since he's helpless, [[DoubleEntendre with the one eye. ...in his pants]].
* TheScrappy: Referenced with regard to the TropeNamer. When Scrappy dies, everyone laughs. Especially his "Uncle Scooby."
