* TwentyFourHourPartyPeople: Johnny and Lisa have a LimitedSocialCircle consisting of the small rotating group of Mark, Claudette, Denny, Michelle, Mike, and Peter. At Johnny's birthday party, this circle has almost doubled, populated by an additional five people (four extras [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and]] [[RememberTheNewGuy Steven]]) we've never seen before. Later party scenes even include guests who weren't there when the party started, as several of the extras [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere walked off in disgust]] during the shoot.

* PsychopathicManchild: Denny seems to be hinted as being one, with his creepy fascination with Lisa and his affinity for "[[ThePeepingTom watching]]" Lisa and Johnny (which consists of running up the bedroom and trying to join in foreplay).

Added DiffLines:

** Lisa supposedly is a master seductress who gets into Mark's pants via candles, a sexy dress, and sons music. Absolutely none of those traits or items are present.


!!Ha ha ha! What tropes, Mark!

** Peter's final scene before vanishing out of the film is the tuxedo football game in the alley. When he falls over he makes a disgusted face into the camera and says "That's it, I'm done".

* MinorInjuryOverreaction: Mike falling against some bins is apparently a life-threatening ailment if the his and everybody else's reactions are anything to go by. He limps off supported by Mark and is asked if he wants to see a doctor, even though he only got some minor bruising at worst.

!!Additional tropes provided by the [[https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/547307 Flash Game]]:

* CrateExpectations: Probably as an in-joke to other adventure games we see a couple of crates in Johnny's living room. You cannot do anything with them though.
* GottaCatchThemAll: There are at least ten spoons hidden throughout the game, all with different properties. You can find the Wood Spoon, the A.I. Spoon, etc.
* GunsAreWorthless: You are able to incapacitate Chris R. with a water bottle while he is shooting live bullets at you.
* HowWeGotHere: The first scene shows Lisa and Mark weeping before [[spoiler:Johnny's grave.]] Then we rewind two weeks to show how it all began.
* ScreenShake: In the beginning when a earthquake hits San Francisco and at the end during Johnny's AngerMontage.
* TheStinger: A post-credit scene shows the flower shop dog licking the [[spoiler:blood from Johnny's body]].

* ImportantHaircut: Some attention is given to Mark shaving his beard off partway through the film, although it's not at all clear what, if anything, this is supposed to signify. Given that, after that point he appears to accept his affair with Lisa after complete and utter confusion each time she lures him into sex, it could be argued that Mark's beard was an inversion of BeardOfEvil. Taking it away makes him more of a jerkass.
