  • Hypocritical Humor: Much like his secret employer Gus, Mike stresses the need to respect the management and keep a courteous and professional relationship with your coworkers, even if — and, in his case, usually if — this means saying nothing at all. For almost the entire series, he's complaining about the memos he's been getting from Madrigal higher-ups telling him to tone down the scare tactics, calling them unnecessary bullshit and refusing to read their disclaimers seriously; he also openly bickers with Lydia (a manager at the same level as him) and often singles her out as a bad employee.note 
  • Sadist Teacher: Unlike the other videos in the 'Employee Training' series, Mike is openly contemptuous both of some Madrigal executives (especially Lydia, who usually winds up portraying the 'bad employee' in the cartoons) and the viewer, whom he indicates are dumb enough that they'll only learn things if he spells them out in cartoons.

  • Shout-Out: As with the other 'Employee Training' series, there are plenty of references to the Breaking Bad franchise as a whole.
