Look left, back at me, there's now tropes.
- Adaptational Badass: In normal Minecraft, Creepers can only kill by exploding. In Villager News: War!, they can be engage the villagers in direct combat without blowing up, and can hurl blocks at their news helicopter.
- Unlike their mainstream counterparts, these villagers can use tools and have even built weapons of war out of other villagers!
- Adaptational Villainy: The Zombie Pigmen are a non antagonistic mob in Minecraft, while in "An Eggs's Guide to Minecraft", they are with the hostile mobs for no reason and served Herobrine.
- All Crimes Are Equal: Any crime in the village, including littering, is punishable by being thrown into the Pit of Death.
- Anachronic Order: In Christmas with the Villagers 2, one of the villagers believe it's the 3rd one, which doesn't even exist. One other villager repeats the number in confusion and the whole thing gets dragged out like in the first one.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: The villages have been invaded by giant mobs, one of them being a giant creeper which is capable of blowing up the world.
- April Fools' Day: 2 of them, During An Egg's Guide to Minecraft, episode 11 was this. The other one was when they were involved with the villagers taking over Minecraft in 2014. Element Animation responded by apologizing the day afterwards.
- Ax-Crazy: Jason on rare occasions, like in Psycho.
- Bad Santa: Santa (a villager) is always seen as a criminal who goes into houses and steals their presents.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: Jason in An Egg's Guide to Minecraft was constantly talking to the narrator, whose voice kept changing every episode or so. It slowed down a bit once Steve was involved. Jason also ended several animations in the series The Crack with To be continued; Dan occasionally asked who he's talking to. The eggs also do this to their viewers, and in some other videos (typically tied with a narrator)
- Comically Missing the Point: When Dan tries to describe what a PC is to Jason in Mac Vs PC, he mentions the tower and the keys. The next scene shows a tower of keys, not understanding the keys refer to the keyboard and the tower refers to the large device that stores the PC's components.
- Cliffhanger: Seen during within the The Crack series when Jason and Dan end up going inside the computer after entering the password incorrectly (9000 times to be exact)
- Easily Forgiven: Jason in The Fugitive stabs one of the potato cops with a fork and he dies. After the real criminal is found, the cop says the eggs are free to go, one of them mentions that they stabbed their partner with a fork, but he lets it off.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: There's a couple of them, a few of them are seen in The Crack.
- Fake Ultimate Hero: Testificate Man is a popular and well loved superhero- who never actually does anything remotely heroic.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Villager #9 who was hanging on the Giant Creeper's head with the antidote, fall from a large height after kicking the antidote into the Creeper's mouth. Though he ends up digging out of his grave at the end of the video.
- Identical Stranger: In The Fugitive a potato cop shows a picture of a fugitive that looks like Jason. The fugitive was a potato with mismatched iris colored eyes.
- Knight of Cerebus: The Giant Mobs in Villager News. Every previous 'villain' was a minor nuisance at the absolute worst, while the giant mobs pose an existential threat to the village and are played far more seriously. This is especially true of the Giant Creeper, who could potentially destroy the entire world if it explodes.
- Narrator: Voiced several episodes of An Egg's Guide to Minecraft, the TEAVRSP, and when they do vlogs.
- Obi-Wan Moment: Villager #4 has one in "Villager News:WAR!", right before he is caught in an explosion caused by a normal-sized creeper.
- Running Gag: Some videos involve Jason going across the kitchen while saying Dan's name. There's also the random appearances of the Mustache Egg who is known for his open smile, mustache, and constant bobbing.
- Samus Is a Girl: Many fans mistaken Crisi to be a boy, and she ends up exploding in anger in Ask Element Anything! But she quickly revives and cools off afterwards.
- Shout Out:
Villager: This. is. MINECRAFT!
- In Zombie Eggs, Jason throws cheese at the zombie eggs, one of them swallow it and it acts like a super mushroom from the Mario series.
- When the computer in HACKED ACCOUNT! mentions that the password is incorrect, it says that it's been incorrect for over 9000 times.
- Villager News involves chasing another villager for littering and choosing to sentence him to the Pit of Death. The whole scene where the Villager is put into the Pit of Death recreates the scene from 300.
- Take That!: The "Generic Teenage Soap Opera" in ''Villager TV 3".
- Too Dumb to Live: Jason can be like this sometimes. Villagers are believed to be slightly dumber especially when Jason points out that a cow is not a beast. One of Jason's clones doesn't even know his own name.
- You ALL Look Familiar: Every villager on top of having the same voice. The only villagers who don't look exactly the same are Villager #4 (having a mustache), the Handyman with no hands, and the single female Villager shown during the parody scene from 300.
- All baby villagers are also identical to each other on top of having the same high-pitched voice. One is even the mayor.
