Added DiffLines:

* TheCameo: Celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot plays the GELF chief, something Harriot later lampshaded when he did the ''Can't Smeg, Won't Smeg'' special.


* ForcedTransformation: Played straight by Duane, who really isn't too pleased at his situation. Inverted by Ace, who really isn't relishing the thought of turning back to normal. And as far as we can tell, averted by the ''actual'' Polymorph.


** UpToEleven in the novelisation. The same scene happens, except this time Lister is NAKED when he comes running past

* CaptainObvious: Subverted for once with the Cat. When an arrow is shot at them by the Kinnatawowi, he takes a sniff to see what's what, and declares "yep, this came from a bow, alright!" He then admits he had been hoping to get more from it.



* SuddenlyShouting: Kryten, due to fear of Emohawks.
-->'''Kryten:''' Sir, you experiencing classic knee-jerk reactions. It is imperative that yo- ''IT'S THE WALL!''



--> '''Kryten:''' Well, at least Mr Lister's guitar survived intact. (The Cat grabs it and smashes it against the floor, handing the pieces back to Kryten) ...Not even Mr Lister's guitar survived intact.

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenForTransformed: Late in the episode, Lister shoots at a barrel and a chain in the belief that they were the Emohawk; Kryten tries to reassure him that he's just being paranoid, only to panic and claim that the Emohawk is the wall. In truth, it's actually one of the thermoses that the Cat/[[BlackAndNerdy Duane Dibley]] is holding.

Added DiffLines:

* ShapeshiftingSound: The Emohawk transforms via morphing effects, accompanied by a sharp "shimmering" sound.

Added DiffLines:

* FeatheredFiend: The Emohawk shown in this episode resembles a hawk and makes bird-like sounds. It's also just as dangerous as a regular Polymorph and is capable of removing people's emotions and aspects of one's personality.


* OverlyLongName: The female [=GELF=] who Lister has to marry is named Ech-ech-ech-ech-ech-ech-ech-ech.

Added DiffLines:

* PrecisionFStrike: As ''Starbug'' is in flames and about to explode, Lister asks Cat if he can put the ship in the ocean of a nearby planet. Cat's response? "Does mouse shit roll? I'll get you there, buddy."

Added DiffLines:

* JumpingOnAGrenade: Ace does this with the grenade Duane activates. He's able to walk away completely unscathed due to being a hard-light hologram.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelTheOriginalTitle: Was originally going to be called ''Polymorph [=II=]: Emohawk'' but Doug Naylor thought this sounded too much like a football score.
