* AccidentalInnuendo: When Lacey reports to Baron Vain, he becomes giddy with excitement the moment he sees her:
-->'''Baron Vain: ([[{{squee}} giddy]])''' "Oooh! Lacey Shadows, my faaaaa-voorite!"
** Taken to its logical extreme in the parody, where the same line is used right before he [[spoiler: [[CoitusEnsues bangs her]]]].
* AdaptationDisplacement: The only reason people know about the show is because of its pornographic parody.
* BestKnownForTheFanservice: As a result of being [[WeirdAlEffect overshadowed by the pornographic parody]] of it. Which is the only reason most know that ''The Modifyers'' even existed.
* CargoShip: Invoked in the porn parody, where Xero and Mole are FriendsWithBenefits.



* HilariousInHindsight: Hardly anyone knows about the show itself, since it was dropped after [[ScrewedByTheNetwork being screwed by two networks]]. On the other hand, [[WeirdAlEffect many people know about the porn parody of it]], because it features its [[PerkyGoth heroine]] ''[[CoitusEnsues being screwed]]'' by two people[[note]] first by Baron Vain for most of the short, then by Mole right before the end credits[[/note]].
* {{Misblamed}}: Sort of. A lot of people blame the porn parody for the show not getting picked up, but no one working on the show has confirmed or denied this.

* TooGoodToLast: Despite having a wonderful art direction, a stylish concept, and Creator/MaeWhitman voicing the lead, it didn't get any farther than ''half'' of its two-parter pilot.
