  • Director Displacement
  • Epileptic Trees: * cough* , and those are only the tip of the iceberg. The Alternate Reality Game tied into the film lead to many more of them, most of which were Jossed.
  • Fan Nickname: Clovie, Clover, MGP, Darwin.
  • Fridge Horror: The ending of the film makes you realise how many people died in the disaster, but unlike the protagonists we don't know anything about them because they lacked a camera. If Hud had not had the camera, then the protagonists would also be forgotten.
    • If that big monster was just a baby, then how big is the mother?
  • Hype Backlash: Dear God, the Hype Backlash...
    • Mostly due to people being nauseous.
  • I Am Not Shazam: None of the characters are named Cloverfield, not even the monster. Cloverfield was the designation the government gave to the videotape that was in the camera throughout the film.
  • Just Here For Clovie
  • Narm: The parasites sound rather like an angry Donald Duck.
  • Older Than They Think: Aside from having non-military/scientist types being the main characters in a monster movie, there's the parasites: Godzilla had lethal 5ft sea lice called Shokilas way back in 1984.
  • Ugly Cute: Not gonna lie. Clovie and his ticks are pretty cute.
    • Seriously though, look up Cloverfield on deviantArt, and see how many pictures people draw of chibi/baby Clovie.
    • The films plays out very differently when you keep in mind that Clovie isn't evil or a horrible agent of destruction. According to creature designer Neville Page, he's more like a lost puppy. D'awww...
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: Keeping in mind that the monster is a baby looking for its mom makes watching this movie an entirely different experience.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Clover. Apparently, there's evidence to support both claims, but since we never see its genitalia, we'll probably never know.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Watch the entire movie, and then tell yourself it was made for $25 million. You can't.
