* AllJustADream: LIES plays on this trope by imagining that the entire Kids Next Door world was dreamed up by Nigel, suffering from Fantasy Prone Personality. [[spoiler: In the end, that aspect turns out to be a dream as well.]]
** OrWasItADream: [[spoiler: Numbuh 1 starts to wonder if him coming back to the world of Kids Next Door is really just another dream. Subverted, however, when he decides it isn't. He's probably right.]]
* CallForward: An example from SISTERS borders on {{Foreshadowing}}: After being turned into a teen, Abby meets up with Chad who assures her she'll get over beginners doubt like he did. The two then randomly start talking about the decor, and become much friendlier with each other. [[spoiler: Abby just used a phrase Maurice taught her to tell if someone's a spy, and Chad's response confirmed he is, as revealed in TREATY. Made better by the fact that Numbuh 5 is the one who did the original [[TheReveal reveal]] that Chad was a spy.]]



* DarthVaderClone: Starting in SISTERS, Vladmir Potov becomes this: a no-nonsense villain with an imposing presence and a personal shuttle who serves as the BigBad's second in command. Of course, given he doesn't fight, he may be more of a Tarkin Clone...
* DreamWithinADream: DREAMS, a parody of ''{{Film/Inception}}'' features these, much to the increasing confusion of the cast. At one point, Captain Thomas (Numbuh 692's other half) shows up to the room Numbuh 35 is in, confusing him into thinking he dozed off because 692 is still in a lower layer. Numbuh 78 gets similar confusion when she dozes off.
** [[spoiler: Early on in LIES, Nigel dreams he's fighting Nightbrace before waking up. When the events of that episode are revealed to be AllJustADream, that segment becomes this in hindsight.]]



* GrowingUpSucks: Seems to be the theme of SISTERS, where the time sometimes comes where you have to grow up into someone new, leave behind your old life, and give up things considered "childish." In the end, however, this is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] via the Drill Team, teens who basically act like grown-up kids, and even the one who's most "adult" is still fond of kids, giving those who get decommissioned an option other than going to the enemy.



* NaughtyIsGood: Aside from the KND, the Separatist Teens are seeking to forge their own path and actively rebel against the adults for their own independence; the worst they ever get is neutral. Meanwhile, the better members of the Teen Ninjas are the guys who question the system; the rest follow Father without question and are very much the bad guys.



* PsychologicalHorror: LIES is this, positing the idea that the entire series is Nigel Uno's dream, having deluded himself into believing his cardboard box treehouse is a hidden fortress, and that his school friends are soldiers in a war. The terror adds up when Nigel remembers Uncle Benny is [[spoiler: Benedict Uno, aka Father]], and starts to go insane and attempt to murder him. [[spoiler: Thankfully, it ends up being AllJustADream, though Numbuh 1 does ponder if he's fallen into his delusion again, only to discard the idea.]]



* RaceLift: Originally, Numbuh 450 was described as Caucasian with green eyes, but her modern art changes her to Asian with brown eyes. This was done to avert MonochromeCasting, and to thematically tie in with JAPAN using the Asian Numbuh 3.



* ReverseMole: Aside from [[spoiler: Maurice from the show,]] SISTERS has [[spoiler:Numbuh 5 become this when she is temporarily turned into a teenager. It also plants a hint that Chad is one of these through a cryptic conversation Abby has with him.]]
* SavedByCanon: While minor changes can stick, some bigger ones obviously can't since these fics try to align with canon. For example, Abby would of course not permanently join the Teen Ninjas after being turned into a teen herself, and none of the operatives captured in GAMES would be totally lost by virtue of making appearances later in canon.



* SirSwearsALot: Apparently, the Weirdos use TV-PG language. Captain Thomas does this in the revised version of DREAMS, and Numbuh 450 does it in supplemental material, including one that uses a SoundEffectBleep. [[spoiler: Given DREAMS showed where they came from is pretty run-down, it makes one wonder what conditions would lead them to start using those words...]]



** In WEIRDO, Numbuh 1 calls Numbuh 692 [[KappaMikey "Backwards Mikey"]]. The latter also does a pose that "would make the Red Ranger proud".

** In WEIRDO, Numbuh 1 calls Numbuh 692 [[KappaMikey [[WesternAnimation/KappaMikey "Backwards Mikey"]]. The latter also does a pose that "would make the Red Ranger proud".



*** Also to Pony, Katie from SISTERS is a big reference to Vinyl Scratch's personality in the fan vid "Epic Wub Time", to the point that Darkton imagines her to have the same voice actress.



** SISTERS has [[spoiler: Maurice/Numbuh 9]] contact Numbuh 5 through static, introducing himself as "Just a friend," and under the codename "Nineball", much the way mysterious contacts would in Franchise/MetalGear.
* TheStinger: At the end of GAMES, having defeated Jack in a card game thanks to his ability to read shuffled cards, he plays a game of solitaire by himself when the mission is over. The entire scene consists of him shuffling cards and saying "I lose." over and over, only sometimes broken up by "Ooh, I win!"



* TeensAreMonsters: Despite the source, [[SubvertedTrope subverted.]] Cree's reasons for being with the Teen Ninjas are more along the lines of "it's gonna happen no matter what, so why fight fate?" Abby first seems like a monster when she becomes a teen, [[spoiler:but she turns out to be a ReverseMole instead.]] Katie and the rest of the Drill Team outright [[InvertedTrope invert]] this trope: They're the coolest, nicest, most heroic teens you'll ever meet, even accounting for NaughtyIsGood. Given the presence of Moosk in canon, this is not unexpected.



** GAMES, the first of its kind to credit its influence, is [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure the battle with Daniel J D'arby]] using children's games like Rock Paper Scissors and Jacks.

* YouCantFightFate: Cree's philosophy as proven by SISTERS. She believes that at some point, the world decides what you're supposed to be like, how you're supposed to grow up, so she tries to make the best of it.

* [[LostHimInACardGame Lost Him in a Children's Card Game]]: Jack's MO, like his influence [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Daniel D'Arby]], challenges kids to games to steal their souls. As the show is wont to do, the games he plays are children's games, with Numbuh 4 being taken in a thumb war, Numbuh 5 losing in a game of Jacks, and Numbuh 1 defeating him in a game of We Didn't Playtest This At All.

** In HILL, [[TheSimpsons the groundskeeper is Scottish]]. Also, the spider is said to sound as close to Takahata101's [[WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged Nappa]] as possible. There's also the [[Franchise/SilentHill fog and sirens that appear when the kids first enter the town]].

* FriendToAllChildren: SISTERS introduces us to the Drill Team, teenagers that all collectively act as friends to children. Admittedly, their leader Katie isn't so good with them, offering Nigel a ride in her car and letting him ride in the front seat and all.



* [[LostHimInACardGame Lost Him in a Children's Card Game]]: Jack's MO, like his influence [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure Daniel D'Arby]], challenges kids to games to steal their souls. As the show is wont to do, the games he plays are children's games, with Numbuh 4 being taken in a thumb war, Numbuh 5 losing in a game of Jacks, and Numbuh 1 defeating him in a game of We Didn't Playtest This At All.
* MythologyGag: As any fanfic does, there are plenty of notes to episodes of the show, which makes sense given how continuity-driven the main show is.
** In SISTERS, Numbuh 1 looks for a Teen Separatist at The Point, and the bodyguard does indeed recognize him as the one who last sunk it.
** Also in SISTERS, Numbuh 4 and Numbuh 12 meet again, and Numbuh 4 instantly recognizes what she did in her debut episode, SLUMBER.



* PragmaticVillainy: The director of Father's army, Vladmir Potovski. His hatred of children mostly stems from the fact that they're on the other team, [[WordOfGod according to Darkton]].

Best shown in SISTERS where he scraps a prototype version of Battle Ready Armor because of a drop in armor, stating that a good armor has no drops.

* SurferDude: The new teen character Katie from SISTERS talks like this.



** The eccentric Drill Team does this as well in SISTERS.
* TruceZone: Overlapping with ReimaginingTheArtifact, The Point has a distinct "leave your conflict at the door" policy. Anyone who brings it up within five miles of the place is shot down by a laser from the sky.

* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: In JAPAN, Numbuh 450 claims her and 692 are aliens taking on the appearances of anime humans. This was written before [[spoiler: the Stop the GKND Pilot revealed that aliens do exist]], so nothing really comes of it, and hints are laid that she's lying.



* FilmFic: DREAMS, which is basically Inception with KND characters... and a few not-KND characters.

to:

* FilmFic: DREAMS, which is basically Inception with KND characters... and a few not-KND characters. In fact, the second part of the fic was given a revised version that removes a lot of the Inception ties.
* GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion: Due to complaints by Darkton's Editor, Operation DREAMS' second half was revised. The changes made include:
** Nearly every scene involving Numbuh 692 is rewritten, and his characterization has been altered to give him a SplitPersonality.
** The original final fight took place at a snow fortress like Inception. In the revised edition, the fortress is in the woods.
** Originally, Numbuh 78 drove the bus over the cliff because she was trying to avoid the armed guards in Jeffery's mind. In the revised edition, she falls asleep at the wheel and drives off the cliff on accident.
** [[spoiler: Numbuh 692 and the projected Numbuh 12 have a quieter, sadder farewell in the revised edition.]]
** Originally, like the movie it was based on, the heroes in the fortress were shot by armed guards to go back a layer. In the revised version, they "go skydiving" instead.



* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Numbuh 692 and Numbuh 450 look like typical anime characters. 692 is a parody of 90's anime dubs, but 450 seems normal. Well, as normal as an anime character in a western universe can be.

** In JAPAN, references to Gundam are made in the Arcade scene, with Numbuh 450 (trying to) sing [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Rhythm Emotion]] and a new interpretation of Gundam being the case for a cockpit simulator game similar to the one that actually exists. It also has a character in Amerikamura (the America-inspired area of Japan) resemble [[VideoGame/FatalFury Terry Bogard]], complete with him greeting the group with "Hey, [[CatchPhrase are you okay?]]"
** Aside from STATUE being a reference to [[Series/DoctorWho Blink]], the new bartender at Lime Ricky's, Wade, [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons speaks with a Brooklyn accent and gets a prank call from Chad asking for a "Chuck Aholic."]]
** In LIES, the first word that Fanny associates with "Boss" is [[Film/ThePhantomMenace "Nass."]] [[spoiler: The ending also sees Nigel say "This is not the real life! This is just fantasy!"]]
** Operation GIRLY is one huge, long tribute to WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic, or more specifically the story of its rise to fame.
** In the already Jojo-reference-heavy GAMES, the game Numbuh 1 plays with Jack is We Didn't Playtest This At All.

* ScheduleSlip: Borders on Valve Time. Darkton rarely post updates to the series. It took much longer for Part 2 of DREAMS to appear than for the other stories, usually two at a time.
