Troma's BMovie productions are known for being surrealistic and never too serious. They're almost always shock exploitation films, usually mixed with comedy and romance and the occasional musical number. Sex, [[{{Gorn}} graphic violence, gore]] and [[{{Fanservice}} nudity]] are par for the course.

Troma's slogan is "Movies of the Future." The films often use the same props, actors, and scenes over and over again, sometimes to save money. At a certain point, this became a hallmark of Troma. Examples include a severed leg, the Penis Monster, and the flipping/exploding car filmed for the movie Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD, which, though blue, is used in place of any other car that needs to crash and explode.

Troma produced or acquired many early films featuring several rising talents, such as [[Series/WheelOfFortune Vanna White]] (''Film/GraduationDay''), Kevin Costner (''Sizzle Beach, U.S.A.''), Creator/SamuelLJackson (''Def by Temptation''), Marisa Tomei (''Film/TheToxicAvenger''), Vincent D'Onofrio (''The First Turn-On!''), [[Series/{{Angel}} David Boreanaz]] (''Macabre Pair of Shorts''), James Gunn (''Film/TromeoAndJuliet''), Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone (''Film/CannibalTheMusical''), before they were discovered. While most of these actors were discovered by other means, Creator/StanleyKubrick actually saw D'Onofrio's performance in ''The First Turn-On'', which launched his career. Lloyd Kaufman has mentioned that Kubrick gave him a call to thank him.
