Remember the days of {{Nickelodeon}} that featured ordinary kids getting thrust into wild and wacky supernatural situations with a healthy dose of comedy and danger? No? Well, apparently Nick decided that the kids of today needed a refresher course, hence the sci-fi/comedy show The Troop's birth.

The show focuses on three high schoolers that suddenly are thrust into a secret society, courtesy of their school counselor, that protects humankind from all the supernatural scourges in existence that we think aren't real, but most assuredly are. The main characters consist of:

* Jake: a massive comic book/superhero buff who is more than enthused that he has been enlisted into the world of...world saving.
* Felix: The resident brains of the group. Somewhat awkward in regards to social norms, he wants to reveal to anyone and everyone what the group does in order to boost his status, but due to a previously taken oath, reluctantly refrains.
* Hayley: The school's most popular beauty queen, good at everything and anything, but discovers her monster-battling abilites are less than subpar. Usually ends up being the voice of reason when she's not concerned about her popularity.
* Kirby Cadworth-Bankroft III: A rich kid who used to be part of the Tulsa Troop and transfers in after Felix leaves to go to Troop International.
* Mr. Stockley: The current school administrator/counselor who enlists the kids into the world of The Troop. Loves his job a little TOO much, which tends to disturb the trio at times.

The show ran for two seasons and was cancelled midway into the second, leaving seven unaired episodes (in the US at least). While other countries managed to get the full series run, all but three of the unaired episodes made their way to the {{Nicktoons}} network in the US. Currently, reruns of The Troop are being shown on {{Nicktoons}} alongside similar shows ''Series/PowerRangersSamurai'' and ''SupahNinjas''.
----
!!This show provides examples of:

* ActorAllusion: DaniellaMonet playing the sister of the Eris Fairy (played by Victoria Justice) was obviously a reference to Victorious, where Monet and Justice play sisters. Interestingly, Monet played the good one and Justice played the troubled one.
** Kelsey Grammar voices Dr. Cranius. Cranius boasts of having attended Harvard, which {{Frasier}} [[{{Cheers}} Crane]] also did.
* AdultsAreUseless: Literally, once you hit 18, you lose your courage and cannot fight monsters.
* AlphaBitch: Somewhat averted in that Hayley is the school's number one popular chick and can be shallow, yet she can take the reins of the team if need be due to the realization that it's no longer always about her, thus making her SpoiledSweet.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Pick one? Mostly Felix. (See also CampStraight)
* AndStarring: the credit for John Marshall Jones, who plays Mr. Stockley.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Phoebe
* AscendedFanboy: Kirby was a big admirer of Felix's and was honored to take his place on the team.
* BadassAdorable: Jake
* {{Big Eater}}: Cadence. In each episode she has be featured in (so far, not many), there is at least one scene where she eats (off screen) quiet a large amount of food for someone her age. In the first episode she was in she eats 3 whole pizzas by herself.
** This is probably due to the fact that [[spoiler:[[HalfHumanHybrid she is really half monster]].]]
* ButtMonkey: Felix, Felix, Felix.
* CainAndAbel: [[spoiler:Cadence and her brother Chino. Cadence is the Abel and Chino is the Cain.]]
* ChainOfPeople: the Troop forms one to save Jake's little sister Phoebe from being pulled into another dimension in "Itty Bitty Baby Dragon".
* ChristmasEpisode: "The Good, the Bad and the Ickie Doll."
* ClothingDamage: in "Lost in Translation" and "Itty Bitty Baby Dragon"
* CloudCuckoolander: Augustus's new sidekick Fredo.
* CoolOldGuy: Mr. Stockley
* DawsonCasting: Nick Purcell (Jake) started the show at age 19 which isn't too bad, and David Del Rio (Felix) at 23...only Gage Golighty is appropriately aged for a high school show.
* DisguisedInDrag: Jake and Felix in "Pajama Game... of Death"
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: A few people on this show have been killed and eaten by monsters. One episode's intro featured a guy getting ''dissolved'' in a gelatinous cube monster.
* FireForgedFriends: Hayley and Cadence
* FreakyFridayFlip: Jake and Hayley in "Taming of the Cube"
* FunHatingConfiscatingAdult: Jake and Phoebe each have something confiscated by their neighbor. Jakes takes advantage of [[spoiler: the neighbor having been temporarily petrified by a Basilisk]] to get their stuff back from his box of confiscated toys.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the beginning of "Lost In Translation", the trio tries to capture a Noctem, but fail. When it sprays them with acid like goo, their clothes melt and dissolve, making all three naked. When a naked Jake tries to turn around to see a naked Hayley, she then holds up her Troop lazer gun and says, "Any of you turn around, and you'll be evaporated". Very eye popping stuff for a kids show.
** The censors must've been asleep when the episode that featured Jake being bitten by a snark went through. A guy gets pregnant with a baby monster? Nick's done that [[JimmyNeutron before]]. But, Mr. Stockley's line "You should've thought of that before you got snarked up"? Subtle as a flying mallet.
** The ep where Haley and Jake switch bodies
---> '''Claudia''': [[UnfortunateImplications Let's go someplace else and ''get to know'' each other.]]
** Not that bad in itself but considering they're all at ''that'' age
* GrowingUpSucks: When Troop members grow up, they find the monsters too scary to fight and thus need to be retired.
* HalfHumanHybrid: [[spoiler:Cadence is half Blood Trasher, as is her brother.]]
* HalloweenEpisode: In "The Great Punkin," Jake accidentally allows all the monsters to escape. Meanwhile, Haley's haunted house project leaves a lot to be desired and Felix goes trick-or-treating in an elaborate costume.
* HarmlessVillain: A monster called a Danker is locked up in the HalloweenEpisode. According to the Troop monster guide, it has a razor sharp tongue, but there's nothing to suggest that it's ever used it or that represents a danger to society. When [[spoiler: the power grid goes down and the monsters escape, terrorizing the city]], the Danker stays it's cell and keeps Jake company. If anything it seems more annoying than threatening.
* HatePlague: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in one episode, where insects called The Swarm feed on people's angst and anger, causing everybody to like each other.
* HeroWorshipper: Jake to Lance in "Tentacle Face"; Hayley (and to a lesser extent, Felix) to Bianca Stonehouse in "The Substitute"; Keiko and Yuki to Felix in "Lost in Translation". Also, Kirby once wore a shirt with Felix's face and the inscription [[WWJD WWFD]] (What Would Felix Do?)
* HeyItsThatGuy: Mr. Stockley is [[Series/SmartGuy T.J.'s dad]].
** And Lance is [[KyleXY Josh Trager]].
** Oh, and we can't forget that the Eris Fairies were [[{{Victorious}} Tori and Trina Vega]].
** Cadence used to be [[{{Unfabulous}} Geena Fabiano]].
** Kirby was [[{{TrueJackson}} Ryan]].
** Dr. Cranius is Frasier Crane, [[HeyItsThatVoice as well as]] [[TheSimpsons Sideshow Bob]].
** Hayley is [[{{Series/Teen Wolf}} Erica Reyes]]
* IAmAHumanitarian: Blood Thrashers are meat-eaters in general, but aren't shy about making a human a meal. [[spoiler:Cadence has struggled not to be this, but her brother has no problem with it]].
* KillerRabbit: Plenty in this show, including one that actually looks like a rabbit.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Snarking.
* {{Masquerade}}: Maintained by snarking anyone else who finds out about the monsters.
* MexicanStandoff: When the three of them can't figure out which one is possessed by the monster.
* MisterSeahorse: Jake in "Snarked Up"
* MoodMotif: The twinkling glockenspiel of "wow he's suitable for the Troop!"
* NoodleIncident: When Troop International showed up to arrest Cadence, Kirby commented all he knew about International Law was about having parties at boats and importing white tigers. While Kirby being a rich kid might explain him being no stranger to those parties and laws that affect them, one must wonder how he'd know about the tiger part.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Dr. Cranius. You'd think a sponge couldn't cause so much trouble, but you'd be wrong.
* NoteToSelf: Gus once told the heroes they could erase his memory since he had hidden reminders. They instead sent him to a mental institution where his tales about monsters will be disregarded as delusions.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Jake
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Vampsters, vampires with hamster attributes
* PoorCommunicationKills: [[spoiler: "Oh Brother" might as well be ''titled'' this! First, not only will Cadence ''not'' tell Jake she's half monster, she keeps it a secret that her ''maneating'' brother is hanging around, which would've saved her the trouble of being held at gunpoint by Hayley and being forced to tell Jake in that manner. While that's a bit understandable because she still loves her brother, Jake could've solved ''everything'' if he'd just told Cadence that her brother wasn't dead...and was unconscious in a crate ''right'' beside him!]]
* PowerTrio: Jake, Felix, and Hayley
* ProudToBeAGeek: Felix
* PutOnABus: Felix
* ReTool: Between the first and second seasons to create a more comic-book feel complete with a new theme song.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Mr. Stockley
* SecretKeeper: Initally, Hayley for Cadence being [[spoiler:half-Blood Thrasher]].
* ShipTease: Jake and Hayley
* SomebodyDoesntLoveRaymond: Hayley had an episode devoted to trying to win over a girl who absolutely refused to like her. In one scene, the girl starts to apologize to Hayley for being rude, but it goes downhill and the girl decides she hates her again. Hayley eventually learns that it's not important if everyone likes her.
* TakenForGranite: In the pilot, they had to face a basilisk.
* ThatPoorCat: Hayley's cat in "The Pajama Party... of Death". The poor thing gets DEVOURED, CHEWED, and SWALLOWED by the cheerleader possessed with the Vespinox. Serious [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar getting crap past the radar]], indeed.

* OurVampiresAreDifferent - Vampsters, vampires with hamster attributes
* PoorCommunicationKills - [[spoiler: "Oh Brother" might as well be ''titled'' this! First, not only will Cadence ''not'' tell Jake she's half monster, she keeps it a secret that her ''maneating'' brother is hanging around, which would've saved her the trouble of being held at gunpoint by Hayley and being forced to tell Jake in that manner. While that's a bit understandable because she still loves her brother, Jake could've solved ''everything'' if he'd just told Cadence that her brother wasn't dead...and was unconscious in a crate ''right'' beside him!]]
* PowerTrio - Jake, Felix, and Hayley
* ProudToBeAGeek - Felix
* PutOnABus - Felix

to:

* KillerRabbit- IAmAHumanitarian: Blood Thrashers are meat-eaters in general, but aren't shy about making a human a meal. [[spoiler:Cadence has struggled not to be this, but her brother has no problem with it]].
* KillerRabbit:
Plenty in this show, including one that actually looks like a rabbit.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia - LaserGuidedAmnesia: Snarking.
* {{Masquerade}} - {{Masquerade}}: Maintained by snarking anyone else who finds out about the monsters.
* MexicanStandoff - MexicanStandoff: When the three of them can't figure out which one is possessed by the monster.
* MisterSeahorse - MisterSeahorse: Jake in "Snarked Up"
* MoodMotif - MoodMotif: The twinkling glockenspiel of "wow he's suitable for the Troop!"
* NoodleIncident - NoodleIncident: When Troop International showed up to arrest Cadence, Kirby commented all he knew about International Law was about having parties at boats and importing white tigers. While Kirby being a rich kid might explain him being no stranger to those parties and laws that affect them, one must wonder how he'd know about the tiger part.
* NoteToSelf - NotSoHarmlessVillain: Dr. Cranius. You'd think a sponge couldn't cause so much trouble, but you'd be wrong.
* NoteToSelf:
Gus once told the heroes they could erase his memory since he had hidden reminders. They instead sent him to a mental institution where his tales about monsters will be disregarded as delusions.

* ShipTease:
Jake and Hayley



* TakenForGranite - In the pilot, they had to face a basilisk.
* ThatPoorCat - Hayley's cat in "The Pajama Party... of Death". The poor thing gets DEVOURED, CHEWED, and SWALLOWED by the cheerleader possessed with the Vespinox. Serious [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar getting crap past the radar]], indeed.

The show ran for two seasons and was cancelled midway into the second, leaving seven unaired episodes (in the US at least). While other countries managed to get the full series run, all but three of the unaired episodes made their way to the {{Nicktoons}} network in the US. Currently, reruns of The Troop are being shown on {{Nicktoons}} alongside similar shows PowerRangersSamurai and SupahNinjas.

Remember the days of {{Nickelodeon}} that featured ordinary kids getting thrust into wild and wacky supernatural situations with a healthy dose of comedy and danger? No? Well, apparently Nick decided that the brats of today needed a refresher course, hence the sci-fi/comedy show The Troop's birth.
