- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: In the In-On-Over-Under game, there's an alligator sitting in the house. It talks and tells you where to put the objects, but exactly why there's an alligator in this house is never explained. While some of the items in the living room make sense, like a book and a backpack, there are some strange ones like a gecko and a mushroom.
- Fountain of Memes: "Hungry Pumkin" is full of this.
- "I'm very hungry!"
- "Give me the X!"
- "Give me the salt/juice/pepper/water!"note
- "NO! I don't want that!"
- Good Bad Bugs: In the "Hungry Pumkin" minigame, Pumkin grows in size with each item he eats, but the game automatically ends after a few items, putting a cap on his size. If you right click the game and hit "Play" after you feed the titular character something, he'll grow, but the game won't count it, allowing you to feed him infinitely. Players can abuse this to make him grow into a massive size.
- Memetic Psychopath: The Hungry Pumkin, because of his Extreme Omnivore tendencies, and, to a lesser extent, his Jerkass behavior.
- So Bad, It's Good: The extremely simplistic gameplay, ugly graphics, and general weirdness have given these games infamy. For example, the pumpkins will eat everything, even a glass of water, glass and all.
- Uncanny Valley: The choppy animation and near-realistic faces of the Pumkin characters could be considered this.
- Watch It for the Meme: How many people actually used the site to learn basic English? How many just came to see the source of the Hungry Pumkin memes?
