In addition to the tropes in the original film, ''Star Wars Uncut'' provides many of its own.

!!Tropes:

* ActionFigureSpeech: In scenes where the characters are being played by actual action figures.
* AdaptationalEarlyAppearance:
** Jar-Jar Binks can be seen in a few scenes.
** There are Ewoks at the medal ceremony at the end.
* AffectionateParody: They parody it because they love it.
* AlphabetNewsNetwork: ENN, the Empire News Network.
* AutoTune: Used in the dialog between Han and Leia about R2-D2 carrying the stolen Death Star plans.
* ChessWithDeath: In the ''Seventh Seal'' inspired clip of the fight between Vader and Kenobi.
* ClusterFBomb: In the ''Big Lebowski'' clip.
-->'''Han:''' Anything's fuckin' better than just sitting around here waiting for them to come in and fucking pick us off.
* {{Crawl}}: during the scene where the dissolution of the Galactic Senate is discussed on [[AlphabetNewsNetwork ENN]]. "Senate Dissolved...Moisture Farmers see Record Low Season"
* CrosscastRole: Sometimes Luke, Han, Vader, and others are female, and sometimes Leia is a guy.
* DawsonCasting: In the scene on the Death Star bridge Leia (circa 20 years old) is played by a woman who has got to be pushing 80.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: Several of the action scene clips feature people humming the portion of the soundtrack that occurs in that particular scene, even though Pugh added the original soundtrack background music.
* FauxtivationalPoster: Luke has one from Biggs. "Dear Luke, You're '''never''' gonna get out of here!"
* FunWithSubtitles: In the first part of the Greedo scene the person playing Greedo speaks English, but it is subtitled in Rodian.
* GoodTimesMontage: Luke's line "That droid and I have been through a lot together" cues a montage of Luke and R2 together partying, shitting, and making love in the same room with a woman and an [=iPhone=] respectively.
* HeartSymbol: Floating around Luke when he first sees Leia's hologram.
* {{Infomercial}}: The sequence where Obi-Wan gives Luke his father's lightsaber is played as one, without changing a single word.
* HoYay: [=C3PO=] wears a banana sling and takes it off during an early scene where he's asking Luke if there's anything he can do to "help."
* {{Intermission}}: A brief one at the 1:12 mark.
* InTheStyleOf: Many clips are filmed as if they were in other films, including ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', ''Film/TheSeventhSeal'', ''Film/{{Tron}}'', and ''Film/{{Clerks}}''
* KneeHighPerspecitve:[[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=59dbmmsvauii4qldqiepuwhp]] Two upper class people are seen driving their car enjoying the view, only to scream in horror. It turns out that they're in the tiny MSE-6 Repair droid that Chewbacca scares.
* LampshadeHanging: Of the fact that Chewbacca doesn't get a medal at the end. After they turn around and see that the crowd is full of Ewoks, complainy audio clips of Leia, Han and Luke are played over the scene, while Chewie says via subtitles "at least you got a damn medal!"
* LogoJoke: The spotlights of the Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox logo turn into lightsabers and start fencing.
* ALongTimeAgoInAGalaxyFarFarAway: Done as a Website/{{Twitter}} status update.
* NoOSHACompliance: A stormtrooper falls into the giant hole in the hangar bay that the ''Millennium Falcon'' is in on the Death Star.
* OffTheShelfFX: R2-D2, [=C3PO=] and Darth Vader are often played by toys. The human characters are sometimes played by action figures too, though not as often.
* OpeningScroll: Played With. The scroll is the same as in the original film, until some blog-type comments pop up after it. The first comment is [[UsefulNotes/FirstPost "First!"]]
* PlayingGertrude: Several clips have children, and even babies, playing the main characters.
* PopUpTexting: The discussion between Luke & Han as Han prepares to leave the Rebel base with his reward is presented as a an [=iChat=].
* RecursiveReality: One portion of the trench run scene is Darth Vader playing with Legos and doing all the sound effects himself, including his own TIE fighter taking out a rebel ship.
* RedShirt: One of the X-Wing fighter pilots in the trench run has "Cannon Fodder" printed on his helmet.
* {{Rotoscoping}}: Some of the clips are done in this style.
* ShoutOut:
** One scene between Han and Luke takes place not in the ''Millenium Falcon'' cockpit, but in [[Film/BackToTheFuture a DeLorean]].
** [[Series/SesameStreet Bert and Ernie]] are attending the Rebel briefing.
** The ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' thinking music plays as Tarkin watches the trench run.
** [[Film/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz Dorothy and the Tin Man]] are at the rebel base listening to reports from the trench run.
** Charcters are often represented by actors wearing a facemask of the actor in the original. In one scene Chewbacca is actually wearing the face of [[Film/{{Spaceballs}} Barf]], himself a parody of Chewbacca.
* ShotForShotRemake: The whole point of the exercise, though many of the recreators take liberties with their scenes.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: Often intentional, but that's what comes from having random people make their own sets and effects.
** In one scene, the ''Millenium Falcon'' taking off from the Death Star is represented by someone reaching into a microwave and pulling out a hamburger on a plate. [See [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=n51ndou2frp4op0bzx33bxs6 Compartment Shot YKTTW]]]
** In another shot TIE fighters are bowties.
* SuspiciouslySmallArmy: The crowd of rebel soldiers at the closing ceremony is represented by ''eight'' people.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: In the scene where they're pulling a TrojanPrisoner little signs saying "Not Han" and "Not Luke" are attached to Han and Luke disguised as stormtropers. ([[ExactWords But maybe "Not Han" is Luke and "Not Luke" is Han?]])
* TalkingHeads: The scene where the dissolution of the senate is discussed is presented as an [[AlphabetNewsNetwork ENN]] news show with Vader, Tarkin and Tagge shot as if they are in three separate places.
* TemptingFate: The OpeningScroll is followed by some blog-type comments; poster alderaan_dude says "Glad I live on a peaceful planet."
* TheOtherDarrin: {{Invoked}} since there are literally hundreds of 15 second clips, so there are many different people playing the main cast throughout the course of the film.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Shown between Leia and [[spoiler:Chewie]] after Luke and Han fight off the TIE fighters.
* UnsoundEffect: When Princess Leia's ship is being attacked at the start of the film, written sound effects include "Holy Crap" and "WTF?"
* WavingSignsAround: The Ewoks at the medal cememony. " Yub Yub" "See you in Jedi"
* WrongNameOutburst: In the recreation of Luke landing back at the rebel base after blowing up the Death Star, the man playing Luke shouts out "Carrie!" instead of "Leia!" when she runs over to hug him, echoing the legendary [[note]]and untrue[[/note]] same incident in the original film.

!!YMMV tab
* BetterThanCanon: The first part of the lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan is done in the super-flippy style of the prequels rather than the fight between an old man and a cripple that happens in the original.
