Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: The show never really caught on but remained with a well liked fanbase through its run and is still seem as a rather fun show even years after it ended.


* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A common criticism of the show was that it focused too much on the (at times, rather generic)characters and not enough on the interesting and bizarre AlternateUniverse setting. This is even considered one of the reasons the show never really got popular.

** A line from Aldermach Maggotbone is extra-funny ([[HarsherInHindsight or far worse]]) due to Creator/DonaldTrump's actions since becoming President.
--->'''Aldermach Maggotbone''': I'm not gonna choose someone based on merit, like Donald Trump on The Apprentice! [[{{Nepotism}} I'm going to hire my unqualified daughter]], [[TakeThat like Donald Trump in real life]]!

** This was retconned in "Callie's Little Sister" - turns out she was dating FrankSinatra, and Mack (Callie's father) offered to impregnate her in exchange for her soul, and getting him out of his ArrangedMarriage with Twayne's mother, Violet.

* OneSceneWonder: Angie, the facegina.

Added DiffLines:

* TooGoodToLast


* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Twain's Alpha Male personality in the first few episodes is a harsh juxtaposition with his later, more effeminate personality that grows stronger each episode.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: The whole episode this was revealed in turned out be a giant act, Twayne might not really have siblings.]]

Added DiffLines:

* MoralEventHorizon: Twayne crossed the line absolutely when he kills his brother to usurp his rank as general, gets worse when he rebels when he was a baby, he killed all his brothers.


* HighOctaneNightmareFuel:
** Callie's giant demonic form. Not something you want to meet in a dark alley, or even a lit one.
** Callie's demon form must be pretty tame compared to others since we don't even get to ''see the face'' of Lilith's demonic form--who is also about 10 times the size of Callie's.
** Then there's the Larry King horde. BRR...

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The Manbirds have developed a distinct and complex language built around American obscenities after a traveler taught them all how to swear. Funny enough on its own, but couple that with newsreports of wild parrots in Australia incorporating expletives in their calls (having learned them from domesticated parrots) and you have a textbook case of life imitates art.
