Juliet: Parting is such sweet sorrow.
Tromeo: Totally sucks.
This movie contains examples of:
- Adaptational Alternate Ending: Played for Laughs at the end. Rather than committing suicide together because of a misunderstanding like in the play, Tromeo and Juliet suddenly find out they're actually siblings and drive off into the sunset to raise their mutant children.
- B-Movie: A near necessity related to any Troma movie.
- BrotherSister Incest: Tromeo and Juliet as siblings at the end.
- Cameo: Screenwriter James Gunn appears as the father of the family whose car crashes, and director Lloyd Kaufman is credited as "Shocked Onlooker"
- Cargo Envy: A famous example from the source material is parodied: In the original play, Romeo sees Juliet in the window with her hands on her cheek and wishes he could be her glove. Here, Tromeo has the exact same lines in the same situation, but Juliet is touching her butt instead of her face, so he's talking about a different sort of cheek. Shakespeare would no doubt approve of this joke.
- Disaster Dominoes: Tybalt has his arm ripped while being dragged by a car, and then is decapitated landing on a moving truck's camp. The head lands on a family's car and causes it to crash spectacularly.
- Dysfunction Junction: Does it really need Lampshading?Tromeo: Maybe both of us are warped.
- Exactly What It Says on the Tin: The credited characters include "Guy Who Says It Will Take Him Only Two Minutes to Have Sex," "Guy Who Says 'You got to work hard to get ahead in life' and Then Looks at the Camera," and "Blind Chick, Vision Impaired Girl, Woman that can't see, Person of the female persuasion with very good hearing"
- Fanservice: It's a Troma film, topless girls had to appear.
- Filth: The Capulets and Ques are porn moguls.
- Fingore: A sex scene goes from "I love fingers" to cutting them with a machete.
- Foreshadowing: "And then you put a little incest into the mix..." from Martini towards Georgie at the start of the film.
- There's plenty of cow references, when... well, see Half-Human Hybrids below.
- Gag Penis: The first appearance of a certain popular Troma prop...
- Gorn: The fingers scene early in the film alone would qualify for this.
- Half-Human Hybrids: Juliet's potion doesn't make her look dead, instead turns her into a cow monster.
- I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Ness sheds tears on seeing Tromeo and Juliet having sex but is supportive of them.
- Name and Name: An homage to the parent company, Troma, with the phrase Tromeo replacing Romeo in the film title. Could also extend to Ques and Capulets.
- Not His Sled: Fans of Troma and even some non-fans know of the twist ending despite never having seen the film.
- Parallel Porn Titles: Tromeo has a Porn Stash with Et Tu, Blow Job, The Merchant of Penis, As You Lick It, and Much To Do About Humping (the last of which is especially hilarious since Much Ado About Nothing already has a sex joke in the title).
- Rasputinian Death: Cappy Capulet throughout the movie.
- Refuge in Audacity: A staple of Troma films and this one definitely lives up to the refuge in aspect.
- Stock Footage: In keeping with Troma's trend of Prop Recycling, the spectacular car flip caused by Tybalt's death appeared in other Troma movies as well.
- Surprise Incest: Tromeo and Juliet end up being siblings.
- Torture Porn: Not as bad partly due to its low budget but you can see it in the Gorn scenes throughout.
- True Love Is a Kink: Tromeo Que has a brief scene where he masturbates furiously to a pornographic interactive computer game with a list of fetishes to pleasure himself to. Which does he choose?In-game Voice: You chose true love.
- World of Ham: Troma and Shakespeare are already exaggerated enough, so imagine them together! Just the fact the narrator is "Lemmy, House of Motörhead" shows this is a movie not holding back.
