- Ascended Fridge Horror: In the movie it was based on, it was never said what Doof-2 did to turn Perry-2 into a Cyborg Platypus, Platyborg. In this fic, however, Old Man McGucket-2 outright states that he tortured Waddles-2's body until it could only be fixed with machinery, the result being Pigborg. Now, remember he was gonna do the same to Mabel, Dipper and their 2nd selves...
- Crack Pairing: Lazy Susan-2 and Old Man McGucket-2.
- Nothing Is Scarier: Stan-2, in the sequel, says that the axe Wendy-2 asked him to analyze was used by McGucket-2 to turn Waddles into Pigborg, and that it belongs to her family. Nothing else is said about the matter...
- Shocking Swerve: Seriously, who would have anticipated that Lazy Susan-2 is not only the wife of McGucket-2, but also the one responsible for the animals and monsterborgs?
