* GenreSavvy: Having no active powers of her own, she's often the one to remind the others that [[ForgotAboutHisPowers they have superpowers that they could (and should) be using in a given situation]].



* GenreSavvy: Quickly works out that something is up with Lucas when he steals others' life force.



* WrongGenreSavvy: For someone who reads a lot of comic books, you'd think he'd realise that trying to make the superhero into your best friend and personal bodyguard, and forcing him to break-up with his girlfriend, isn't going to end well for you. For one, it's not going to make him all that sympathetic to your outlook.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: After learning about the time-travel power, he immediately realises just how dangerous the power is... and orders Seth to implant it into the dying Friedrich, so the power will die with him.

Girl the main cast met at a party while she was EXTREMELY drunk. However, she seems capable of holding her own, even after she has had enough alcohol to kill a man five times her size. She decided to pretend to be on Community Service, making her a new member of the gang.

* [[MacGuffinGirl MacGuffin Guy]]: The Nazis in the altered timeline consider him very, very valuable, as they can use him to empower their members. He's wanted so badly a Nazi taskforce's main task is to find him, and Seth is smuggled by resistance members repeatedly to avoid detection

* HeroicSuicide: In the finale, she [[spoiler:kills herself by slitting her wrists, knowing that Luke will have no choice but to go back to a point in time before the bad future started; allowing her to stop the Jumper Posse from becoming evil, save Rudy's life, and prevent herself from becoming trapped in an abusive relationship with Luke.]]

* [[spoiler: NoDeadBodyPoops: Suffers this following his first resurrection, and still joked about later in the second series.]]



* CallBack: When people ask him what he was arrested for, he explains that it was for 'eating some pick 'n' mix,' at which most people scoff in disbelief. [[spoiler: However, in 1x04, we see he wasn't lying]].

* DisappearedDad: To the point where he left an eight-year old Nathan alone in an Ikea with a registered paedophile before eventually running out on Nathan's mother altogether. Ironically, though, he is the only father of the Misfits that we see on screen.
* ForgotAboutHisPowers: When his powers are finally revealed, Nathan ends up never using in situations when they're ''really'' needed, for which the others frequently criticise him. [[spoiler: In the case of his immortality, he never thinks to use himself as a shield for the others; in the case of his reality warping, he can't think of any way to use it in an offensive or defensive capacity- ie, conjuring a gun, opening a door in a dead-end, etc.]] However, [[spoiler: in the case of his immortality- specifically why he doesn't use himself as a shield- he states a very good reason: it still ''hurts''. He does shield Simon when he's in love with him thanks to Vince's tattoo, however]].

* MaliciousMisnaming: ''Always'' refers to Simon as "Barry", since he doesn't see him as interesting or worthwhile enough to call by his real name - even when he's begging him to [[spoiler:save his life, shortly before he dies for the first time]]. He never does break the habit, but it's clearly become more of an AffectionateNickname by the end of the series.

* PapaWolf: Subverted in 1x05. He's only overprotective of the baby Finn because his ability invokes this state in others.

* [[spoiler: PersonalityPowers: Nathan remains eternally confident despite his misfortunes and bounces back from almost every single insult and embarrasment, so he gains the capacity to return from the grave.]]

* RefugeInAudacity: Utilises this in quite a few episodes; for example, preventing Sally from finding the dead bodies in the boot of her car by hurling a brick at the windscreen; holding Rachel at gunpoint [[spoiler: with a water pistol]]; distracting a gang of car thieves by pretending to try to hire them as male prostitutes; shocking two security guards out of commission by [[spoiler: using his new power to pull a rabbit out of his ass.]]
