- Crowning Moment of Awesome: Any HvZer will tell you of one crazy awesome war story or another.
- Memetic Mutation: Several, most notably: "ZA RODINU!", "Thanks for the ammo.", "There are no Snipers in Nerf!", Humanity check!", and "All the way across campus".
- "We need more Stampedes!", "Back in my day..."
- Paranoia Fuel: Playing as a human is this trope. You're afraid to talk to your friends, you can't walk to class without looking over your shoulder every few seconds, and you'll probaby end up living on ramen packets for a few days (since the average school's cafeteria tends to be a regular zombie hangout).
- Tear Jerker: This happens a lot when a girlfriend or boyfriend becomes zombified.
- It does lead to a lot of hilarity afterwards, though, especially if they were planning on having a night together.
