* OffTheShelfFX: A rebel is clearly using a repainted [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendo Super Scope]] in one shot. Actually a subversion since a) the good ol' Super Scope looks convincingly like the bazooka it's supposed to be, and b) the visual FX cover for it.

* FunWithSubtitles: In an inversion of SpiceUpTheSubtitles, the subs are ''extremely'' bland and thus highly accessible to non-Aussies. (Which is exactly why you leave them ON - they contrast so much with [[UsefulNotes/AustralianSlang the actual dialogue]] that they provide a whole 'nother level of humor.)

[[AllThereInTheManual The website suggests several possibilities]]; either Drongo's unique alien metabolism [[TheAlcoholic requires a constant supply]], he's shipping it offworld to [[MoneyDearBoy pay his gambling debts]], or he's [[EvilIsPetty just a wowser who doesn't want anyone else to have a good time]].

* SkewedPriorities: On seeing Burko lying in front of his destroyed pub, Merve exclaims, "Oh no!" then steps over his body to pick up an empty beer can. "A bloody tragedy." This becomes a RunningGag as Merve is motivated more by his need for a cold one than his desire to fight Drongo's tyranny.
