Woke Up Like This provides examples of:

  • Break the Haughty: Apo does this by placing a "Freaky Friday" Flip curse on Nando and Sabrina after being rude on him in separate occasions.

  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: Nando and Sabrina switches bodies after being rude to the same old man, woke up in their own homes with their bodies switched the following day.

  • Voices Are Not Mental: Nando and Sabrina body-switcheroo didn't include their voice. They retained their mannerism though.

  • Tomboyish Voice: Nando while in Sabrina's body.

  • Camp Gay: Sabrina while in Nando's body. She was very feminine for much of the time of the body swap. It does not help that she often wears women's clothes which makes her appear as a man in drag. Also when one her female friends became infatuated with her, Sabrina insists that she may "look like this" but she is still straight, meaning she is still into men despite being stuck in a man's body.

  • Shout-Out: The climax of Nando's conflict when his basketball team plays against the Meanstars, a reference to Space Jam's Monstars.

How well does it match the trope?
