* KungFuKid: All CHERUB agents train in advanced martial arts and many would qualify, though [[BruceLee Bruce]] [[ChuckNorris Norris]] is the one most noted for his martial arts talent.

* MeaningfulName and MeaningfulRename: Justified because CHERUB agents get to pick their own new name when they become agents and again when they leave CHERUB. For example, Mr. Large is very tall and muscular, and the CHERUB agent most obsessed with martial arts in the series is named [[BruceLee Bruce]] [[ChuckNorris Norris]]. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in ''Shadow Wave'' by journalist Hugh Verhoeven who, after seeing Bruce's combat capabilities, remarks "Bruce Norris, eh? I take it that name's no coincidence?"

Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: The plot of ''Maximum Security'' was started by the theft of a shipment of experimental Buddy missiles, which were linked to the antagonist of the story. While the antagonist ''is'' captured in the end, it's not clear if she did steal them and they are never recovered.

* ItAmusedMe / ForTheEvulz: Jane Oxford in ''Maximum Security'' is one of the FBI's most wanted and amassed assets worth more than 1.4 billion dollars over the course of thirty years from theft of military technology. She couldn't care less about the money or the notoriety though, she did it purely for the thrill of the chase.

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: While "evil" may be pushing it, many of the antagonists have families which they clearly care about because outside of their criminal activities, they're just normal people. CHERUB [[ExploitedTrope exploits]] this fact by having their agents befriend their targets' children and by extension, the targets themselves.
