* SpecialEffectsFailure / SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Somehow manages to have it both ways. While his works are play up the stylistic suck of his source material, his dedication to making them period accurate also accounts for this. Hell, his team can even get some genuinely impressive special effects, such as the stop-motion dinosaurs in ''Lizard Soldiers of the Third Reich.''

** His short ''ComputerMan'' is a very spot-on parody of early 90's point-and-click adventure games, with some parody of the CDI thrown in as well.

Added DiffLines:

*ShownTheirWork: His parodies manage to cleverly mock his respective targets so well due to the amount of work it took to make them appear as if they were the real thing.
**Also, every foreign language used is near 100% accurate to how they would sound in real life.


* TheComicallySerious: His characters ‘never’ break their seriousness, even amidst the ridiculousness of what happens around them

* Retraux: He manages to get the specific styles of the shows and movies he mocks down with incredible detail. If it weren’t for the moments of bizarre humor and comical gore, you could actually mistake his parodies for the real thing.
* SoBadItsGood: Averted amazingly well. While intentionally “so bad, it’s good” movies often fail, Russo has actually managed to not only make them, but make them '''well.''' It probably helps that he supplements this aspect of his style with copious amounts of surreal comedy, clever parody and having his characters never address the silliness of their situations.

** ’’Italian Spiderman’’ is a tribute to Italian exploitation cinema that frequently ripoff and misappropriate American characters and franchises (think ‘’Film/TurkishStarWars’’ or ‘’3 Dev Adam’’)
** The first season of ‘’Danger 5’’ is an incredibly accurate parody of campy 60’s action TV shows, with spoofs of pulp fiction cliches, adventure stories and Japanese sci-fi of the same era.

* FunWithSubtitles: The multilingual cast of ‘’Danger 5’’ plays with this very often, but the intentionally sloppy dubbing of ‘’Italian Spiderman’’ has a lot of fun with it.
* HeroicComedicPsychopath: ‘’Italian Spiderman’’ is this to a T, but the cast of ‘’Danger 5’’ also fit the bill.
* MaleGaze: Parodied and subverted often.

''Danger 5'' are a childish, hyper-violent, sex-crazed group who mess up rather often.
