The Billy la Bufanda series contains examples of:

  • Art Evolution: Billy la bufanda is in 2D, but all the subsequent entries (except for Billy la Bufanda enseña los animales) are in 3D.
  • The Chanteuse: Billy y las botas ends with the Boots singing a melancholy outro about how much they miss Billy at a bar.
  • Cool Shades: Billy wears these.
  • Especially Zoidberg: Billy hates all the other articles of clothing, especially the Hat.
  • Eye Glasses: When Billy takes his shades off, there are no eyes underneath.
  • Giant Hands of Doom: How Billy sees the hand of the tall man taking him away from the boots.
  • I Will Find You: Billy y las botas 2 revolves around Billy and the Hat looking for the Boots. They don't find them.
  • Polyamory: Billy seems to be dating both the boots at once.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Billy and the Boots, with their respective owners trying to keep them apart. The narrator at the beginning of the song even calls their love "forbidden and legendary."

  • Triang Relations: Type 9 with Billy the scarf and the two boots. The two boots are good friends who are always seen together. They're both in a relationship with the same scarf named Billy. None of them seem to mind.
  • Unreliable Narrator: In "Billy la Bufanda", Señor Wooly insists that Billy is just a normal, motionless scarf at the same time we see Billy living and moving around on-screen. When Señor Wooly says Billy has no teeth, the camera zooms in on Billy's teeth. You really have to wonder if Señor Wooly is telling the truth.
  • Verbal Backspace: Billy la Bufanda's lyrics revolve around this trope. Billy goes someplace in town to buy something, then the narrator realizes he doesn't have any teeth/eyes/mouth and that he can't eat/see anything, and says he actually didn't go anywhere.
  • You Wake Up on a Beach: In Billy y las botas, Billy wakes up on a beach after falling off the tall man's neck.

How well does it match the trope?
