Tropes associated with Goodall's work include:
- Based on a True Story: 1993's Schindler's List focuses on the titular industrialist's life and his efforts to save people's lives during the Nazi oppression of World War II.
- Big Good: Goodall plays the unnamed "Madam President", bearing a clear resemblance to a certain 2008 and 2016 candidate, leading the U.S. military forces in the 2018 action movie Hunter Killer.
- Black-and-White Morality: This trope is totally justified given the historical context of Schindler's List, with the fanatical Nazis being shown as the monsters that they were.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: Goodall's President of the United States in Hunter Killer bears a strong resemblance to a notable female politician that has run for that office but not succeeded.
- No Name Given: The aforementioned U.S. President is simply called by her title in that film.
- Prevent the War: Hunter Killer could basically be called Prevent The War: The Movie.
- Renegade Russian: The villains of Hunter Killer aren't just acting outside of the Kremlin's authority (as in many James Bond movies]]). The bad guys actively murder and hold hostage the civilian leadership and their people.
- When You Coming Home, Dad?: Goodall's Moira Banning in Hook, the wife of Peter "Banning" Pan (played by Robin Williams), has to raise their children in the constant absence of the workaholic Peter.
- World War III: This is what multiple characters strive to prevent and the Big Bad plans to cause in Hunter Killer.
