* ConsumingPassion: Whenever the duo gets meat-crazed, a heart appears over their target and they go slobbering mad. Combine this with the Japanese slang meaning of "carnivore" and "herbivore" (active and passive roles in a relationship, respectively), and you've got this trope.



* SexIsViolence: Whenever the duo gets meat-crazed, a heart appears over their target and they go slobbering mad. Combine this with the Japanese slang meaning of "carnivore" and "herbivore" (active and passive roles in a relationship, respectively), and you've got this trope.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Yans and Gans make a plan to lure out Naomi with flowers before leading her into an oil slick trap so they can eat her while she's down. Naomi falls for it and trips... onto ''them'', as the duo slipped on the oil and couldn't make it out of the way in time.


* MeatVersusVeggies: Carnivores Yans and Gans are have harsh color schemes, overly macho and aggressive attitudes, and sharp edges on their character designs. The various herbivores they hunt down are round, decked out in pastels, and are usually minding their own business before Yans and Gans show up. There's also some elements of MarsAndVenusGenderContrast to it, as Yans and Gans are both male while all of the herbivores are female.

* BumblingHenchmenDuo: Yans (the tall blue one) and Gans (the short red one). With the various duo-centric tropes it entails:
** RedOniBlueOni
** BigGuyLittleGuy
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: The Leads are shown to be incompetent bumblers whenever they attempt to hunt something, but somehow they were enough of a threat that humans had to take to the stars to avoid them.
* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: When you consider the backstory and their general bad attitudes, its tough for one to feel bad for Yans and Gans starving to the point of hallucinations, sticking themselves with spikes, or [[LaserGuidedKarma being shot at by humans with Star Wars-esque lasers and falling back to earth in a burning heap.]]
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Ultimately, all of the difficulties Yans and Gans suffer through is because they love meat far too much for their own good, driving away their food source (humans) and having to deal with more creatures whose physical attributes and survival instinct exceed theirs. They have been shown to be somewhat omnivorous, as Yans attempts to eat a flower at least twice, but Gans is fiercely opposed to eating plants.
