Tropes present in the works of Its Real 85 include:

  • Anyone Can Die: This begins to take effect in the final episodes of Crackhead Carl. The Hit Man, Pee-Wee, Carl's mother, and Raph are all killed, as well as countless cops and civilians.
  • Archenemy: Freddy and Jason, and also Officer Harris and Curly.
  • Arc Welding: The final episode of Crackhead Carl confirms that said series takes place in the same continuity as Freddy and Jason in the Hood. "Freddy Krueger in the Hood Part 2" has Freddy and Jason in the same episode as Harris and Carl, confirming it's all one universe. "Friday the 13th" also features a flashback to shortly before the two Crips did a drive-by on Freddy that ultimately got them killed in the first Freddy video.
  • Avengers, Assemble!: The creator has implied that eventually, Freddy, Jason, Carl, Harris, the Nigga Turtles, Splinter, Shredder, Tatsu, and Da Patrol will team up or at least all come together in a future skit. Freddy, Jason, Harris, and Carl all appear together in the second Freddy episode.

  • Ax-Crazy: Most of the cast is this, but particular mention goes to Officer Harris, who regularly threatens to shoot a man for no reason, and has been known to brutally run over innocent people. Crackhead Carl also gets bloodthirsty after the death of the hitman.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Every episode of the ongoing series ends with the villains getting away with it. Also, in the Freddy and Jason videos, they successfully kill their targets.

  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Officer Harris dons an ugly sweat suit to pose as a drug addict to try to bust the protagonist, who sees right through it. Doesn't help that Harris uses cop diction like "illegal narcotics", which he's also called on for.
