  • Complete Monster: Otis B. Driftwood.
  • Crazy Awesome: Captain. Fucking. Spaulding.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: The Freebird scene.
    • Any time Otis speaks. Action movies wish they had lines that quotable.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The ice cream scene. Tutti-fucking-frutti!
  • Draco in Leather Pants: Despite being the most sadistic and reprehensible member of the family by far, and being a rapist to boot, not to mention having personal hygiene that would make a monkey blush, Otis seems to attract a number of female fans.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Unholy Two.
  • Even Better Sequel: Whether you liked or loathed House of 1000 Corpses, most people tend to consider this one better than the first.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Baby Firefly
    • Otis B. Driftwood.
  • Moral Event Horizon: What Baby and Otis do to Banjo & Sullivan for fun.
  • High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Pretty much everything with Otis, including skinning some guy's face off and forcing his wife to wear it as a mask.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The movie was made at the height of the "War On Terror", and it shows.
  • Too Cool to Live: Adam and Wydell nearly kill all the Fireflies, but wind up dead before they can finish the job. The Fireflies themselves don’t fare much better.
  • Tear Jerker: While unexpected for a film like this, Tiny's final fate could still easily fit this trope, especially considering Otis' final words to him.

  Otis: We'll Come Back for You.

    • And the fact that Otis' voice cracks at this is just too much for this troper.
  • Villain Sues: Guess who?
