  • Broken Aesop: Frank's constantly getting called on his poor nutrition and refusal to exercise, and at the end, we see that his whole ordeal with Thrax has convinced him to turn his life around. Just to get the point across, the last shot of the movie shows him going on a hike and eating a carrot stick. The intended "Be Healthy! Live Longer!" Aesop seems to fit...but Frank's unhealthy diet and lack of exercise had absolutely nothing to got to do with his brush with death. He got infected because he ate a dirty egg that happened to be covered with lethal bacteria. Theoretically, the same thing could have happened to a health nut. Granted, Frank's eating habits are atrocious, but he never suffers any of the expected consequences of them like heart problems, diabetes, or malnutrition. Hell, he isn't even particularly fat...
    • But the message can be seen as being about the nutritional content, not total calories, of the food he eats. That combined with his lack of exercise would lead to weakening his immune system, which combined with his indiscriminate eating habits...
  • Complete Monster: By the standards of the characters, and in the scope of the film, Thrax certainly qualifies... he wants to simply destroy Frank. For the sole reason of beating his previous kill times, mind you.
    • And keep this in mind. From a human perspective, only one life is lost when a human dies. From the perspective of the series? Nearly every cell in your entire body is a sentient living being, that's trillions of lives. Thrax has absolutely no problem knowingly killing what would amount to much more than the entire world's population for no real reason other than his own ego...
      • Viruses typically kill people or make them sick. Thrax wants to go above and beyond that just so he can go down in medical books. He doesn't want to just be a virus: he wants to be THE virus!
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Thrax has a pair to go with that leather jacket.
  • Ear Worm: If you're not a fan of rap, most of the soundtrack will get stuck in your head.
  • Evil Is Sexy:
    • Despite the fact that he is only vaguely humanoid, Thrax apparently falls under this.
    • It's the voice.
    • Kind of makes sense. Viruses cannot reproduce asexually. Though how they go about reproducing is kind of Nightmare Fuel.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Among other moments,

 Drix: Um, [Mayor]? If it's all the same to you, I think I'll stay with Jones.

  • Ho Yay: Jones and Drix. I think I'd like to stay with Jones indeed.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • Ebola? Let me tell you something about Ebola, baby. EBOLA IS A CASE OF DANDRUFF COMPARED TO ME!
  • Narm: Uncle Bob's reaction to Frank getting hospitalized. His "crying" honestly sounds like hooting laughter.
  • Nausea Fuel: Most of the movie. Also, the scene with the zit.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Frank starting to die, both from his perspective and perspective of the inhabitants of Frank City.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Thrax. Again, the dude is effectively killing an entire world for no reason than to satiate his own ego.
  • Paranoia Fuel: There's a lot in this film. Firstly, your body is made up of millions of fully conscious individuals; talking, crying, and living their millions of lives within you as you live about yours. Every time you cut yourself and blood drips out, that's a couple thousand people dying! Also, related to the Fridge Horror, your Mayor (with approval from City Counsel) has the ability to take over your body and make you say and do things beyond your control. Finally, any virus you've ever contracted although you no longer show the symptoms is still in your body; watching, waiting...
  • Squick:
    • Frank picks up a hardboiled egg and eats it. What makes this Squick? The egg has been on the ground in a filthy chimpanzee cage, and before that it was IN THE CHIMP'S MOUTH. Maybe all his unhealthy habits were affecting his brain?
    • It's more like the thing running his brain affected his unhealthy habits.
  • Tear Jerker: The "death" of Frank.
