** In the case of '"Sidehackers'', the writers approved the film for use on the show after seeing only half. Then just at the midway point they were shocked to see the hero's girlfriend [[MoodWhiplash brutally raped and murdered]] by the villain. They removed the scene and just had Crow announce "For those of you wondering at home, Rita is dead." After that, ''[=MST3K=]'' made it a policy to screen the entirety of the films before approval.

* ConditionedToAcceptHorror: ''Future War'" reveals Tom as this. During a drug test, his point of view looks like a DisneyAcidSequence with Mike and Crow as monsters. Servo chuckles and explains it's ''not'' a hallucination, but what he sees everyday.

Added DiffLines:

* OnceDoneNeverForgotten: [[MikeNelsonDestroyerOfWorlds Mike Nelson]] destroyed ''three planets in a single season, all purely by accident.''
-->'''Prof. Bobo, the SimpleCountryLawyer:''' So you blow yourself up a planet; does that make you a world-destroyer? Hmm? My momma, she burnt a brown betty one time, that make her a world-destroyer? I reckon not.

Added DiffLines:

** And MAYBE Mike Nelson (the character), himself...a guy who admitted to kissing (presumably male) surly truck farmers, turns into a sputtering boob around women and who never notices when real hot scantly-clad are being sexy on screen (commenting on stuff like stairs instead).

Added DiffLines:

** Season 3's ''Santa Claus Conquers the Martians'' plays this trope straight, as the print they used had the the title cut off.

Added DiffLines:

* TheKilljoy: In the short film "A Day at the Fair", one of the events is a cake contest, with some dour-looking judges.
-->'''Narrator:''' Judging cakes should be fun!
-->'''Mike:''' But this woman manages to suck the joy out of it.

* CheerfulFuneral:
** After watching an incredibly boring funeral in ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S05E11TheGunslinger The Gunslinger]]'', Joel and the 'bots lie in fake coffins of their own and discuss what their ideal funerals would look like. Servo can't decide between something educational that explains his embalming methods, or a circus-like extravaganza. ("I want elephants, Joel, lots of them.") Crow, on the other hand, wants a beach-themed funeral, complete with keggers and "couples sneaking off to neck--prop me up so I can surf!"
** In ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S11E14AttheEarthsCore At the Earth's Core]]'', Max invents a cannon that fires cremated ashes like confetti, intended to make funerals more interesting.

Added DiffLines:

** Doctor Forrester spends the entire end credits of the ''Film/FirstSpaceshipOnVenus'' episode ''barfing'' in the "junk drawer".


* {{Feghoot}}: A host segment for one episode was an Creator/IngmarBergman parody which took advantage filmmaker's tendency for long bleak atmospheric shots to set up the timing for this type of gag.

Added DiffLines:

*** During the KTMA days, ''the entire premise'' was this. Believe it or not, the show was not originally about the riffing. It was just supposed to be a B-movie matinee show with funny skits and host segments, a la [[Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark Elvira]] or Svengoolie, but with the gimmick that the hosts joined you in the "theater."[[labelnote:*]]That's why the guy under ComicallyMissingThePoint was so annoyed at them[[/labelnote]] Joel and the bots were originally only going to pipe up with humorous facts or the occasional joke, but Trace and Josh were so good at improv that more jokes kept popping up. It wasn't until they were putting together a compilation of their best riffs for The Comedy Channel that they realized that ''that'' was what the show should be focused on, just joke after joke, in the style they would become famous for.
