- Adaptation Displacement: Angry Dad started as a comic book but this is rarely if ever brought up ever since betterthantvdotcom started the web series.
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Is Angry Dad a Jerkass deserving of all the crap that befalls him? Or is he just the victim of a Crapsack World and can't stand it anymore?
- Jerkass Woobie: Angry Dad himself may count as this, given the world he lives in and how he always seems to be angry.
- Squick: His eyes popping as his head grotesquely inflates
- What an Idiot!: Who seriously presses a Big Red Button that demolishes a plant's cooling towers? Again? And who would make such a thing in the first place?
YMMV / Angry Dad
