* AssholeVictim: Peeter Blame in "Clubland Heroes". He's a small-minded, pompous little busybody whose hobby was apparently suing almost everyone he came into contact with, and who seemed to take great pleasure in getting the law imposed as harshly as possible on people for even the mildest of infractions. Subverted, however, in that it is made abundantly clear that being a small-minded and pompous little man isn't an offence punishable by death and his personality does ''not'' make it okay for someone to dismissively bludgeon him to death as if he was nothing. [[spoiler:Not even if said murderer was one of the finest heroes in the land.]]

* BreakTheHaughty: The Superior Six experience this at the end of "Clubland Heroes". [[spoiler: One of them murdered Peeter Blame, several of the others helped to cover it up, and even those who weren't directly involved kept silent about it. So since the Diogenes Club couldn't officially identify the guilty party or prove their involvement, they punished them by either exposing other dirty laundry they had or withholding their protection when others found it out, thus leading to their collective public disgrace and disbanding.]]

* HumiliationConga: Soon after the events of "Clubland Heroes", [[SmugSuper the Superior Six]] experience a lengthy sequence of humiliations and disgraces which led to their public disgrace and disbanding. [[spoiler: It's implied the Diogenes Club was either directly involved or withheld their protection when others exposed them.]]

* AgentMulder / AgentScully: Diogenes agents manage to be both. "Angel Down, Sussex" seems to imply that a lot of their work is debunking hoaxes, even when other paranormal investigators buy into them. However, they are very, very aware that certain paranormal phenomena are real.

* GeorgeLucasThrowback: ''The Man from the Diogenes Club'' is a throwback to SpyFiction from sixties and seventies shows. From there, practically every short story nods to some genre, ranging from Enid Blyton's child detective stories to modern day superhero comics.
