-----
!!This movie contains examples of:

* AccentAdaptation: The American dub replaces (some of the) broad South African accents with American regional accents. This results in the incongruous presence of a southern-fried American construction foreman at a South African building site.
* ActionPrologue: A punch-em-up attack on the Sun City casino.
* AlternateDVDCommentary: It received the RiffTrax treatment [[https://www.rifftrax.com/kill-and-kill-again in 2017]].
* ArtisticTitle: A Bond-style credit sequence featuring silhouettes of Chase.
* AvengersAssemble: The first act is all about Chase getting the band back together.
* BondOneLiner: Steve Chase is full of them.
* BulletTime: The first live-action film to feature this effect. It is used only in one scene, about an hour into the film, after the main villain has already been killed.
* CombatByChampion: Chase versus Marduk's "optimus".
* CultColony: New Babylonia.
* DressCode: Marduk's minions wear slacks and sky-blue T-shirts.
-->'''[[RiffTrax Bill Corbett]]:''' Are we sure this isn't just Habitat for Humanity?
* EightiesHair: Minerva and her short pink-dyed do.
-->'''Chase:''' Has anyone ever suggested you change your hairdresser?
* EverybodyLaughsEnding
* FiveManBand: TheLeader Steve Chase, TheBigGuy Gorilla, TheLancer Gypsy Billy, ConsummateProfessional The Fly, ComicRelief Hotdog. Tagging along is TheChick Kandy Kane.
* FrenchJerk: ''"This soirée was the pièce de résistance!"''
* HandyFeet: Fly does stuff like light incense with his feet.
* HiredGuns

* MadeOfExplodium: Marduk's helicopter.
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: Kandy poses as one.
* MindControlDevice: A mind-control serum derived from potatoes.

* SameLanguageDub: Many of the South African actors have been dubbed with American accents.
* TheApartheidEra: Partially filmed at Sun City, famous target of anti-Apartheid boycotts. To its credit, the film contains hints of an anti-Apartheid stance. Chase's team is racially integrated, for instance. And there are a few digs at the South African regime.
* TheEvilsOfFreeWill
-->'''Marduk:''' Freedom of choice, as we have come to know it, has led inexorably to the deterioration of the ethical and moral fabric of society.
* UnfortunateImplications: The lone black team member is called ''Gorilla'', of all things. Lampshaded in the RiffTrax.
-->'''Bill Corbett:''' Hey, Gorilla! Still got that unfortunate nickname?
* WarForFunAndProfit: Chase and his group are in it for the money.
* WealthyPhilanthropist: Chase accepts a job from a couple of public-spirited rich guys, and not from the South African government. One of them pointedly remarks, "It's debatable who will use the formula for more evil ends: our government or Marduk."
