- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: All of the songs could qualify as this, but special mention goes to Chef Guy's impromptu musical number about carryout.
- Ear Worm: Many of the songs. They're short, but incredibly catchy.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Action Fighter is likely the film's most beloved character. Along with being played by Jemaine Clement, he receives a substantial chunk of the most quotable lines.
- Evil Is Sexy: Action Fighter, who in-universe possesses maximum Sexyness.
- Fountain of Memes: Action Fighter, though other characters such as Asian Sidekick also have large swathes of memorable dialogue.
- Narm Charm: An entire movie filled with very deliberate amounts of this.
- Retroactive Recognition: Features Jemaine Clement and choreography by Brett Mackenzie a good few years before Flight of the Conchords really started to gain notoriety.
- Signature Scene: Sione's final battle with Action Fighter.
