* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti - Unidentified animals and hoax monsters will occasionally pop up in the news, but no one on the show ever really takes them seriously.
* BriefAccentImitation - Almost everyone hosting has slipped into a British accent on occasion. Its also a "rule" that whenever a guest-host is serving as the Rogue for the week, they must do this at least once in the show.
* TheHost - There's Robert, Rebecca, Evan, and Jay, but its pretty obvious that Steven is the one in charge. He also hosts the ''Science or Fiction'' segment, while everyone else plays along.

* LogicalFallacies - The hosts spend most of their time on the show picking apart people's evidence and logic, and there is even the occasional ''Name That Logical Fallacy'' segment.
* ScienceHero applies to everyone on the show, and a good number of the guests also. Being a part of the skeptical movement, the NESS has a hand in calling out unsafe medical practices, denouncing anti-vaccination protesters, stopping creationists from getting the upper hand in schools, disproving psychics, and have generally tried to become a force for change and for legislation that supports science.

* WittyBanterWittyBanter: There can be quite a bit. To quote Steve, the main tone of the show is to be "witty, but weighty".

** In particular when dealing with guests. Steve Novella almost never bleeps out profanity from a guest, no matter how bad, likely as a matter of principal.

* LeftItIn: The podcast started off very PG, as the host Steven Novella would edit out profanity. The show has gradually gotten more adult thanks in part to this trope.

Being a part of the skeptical movement, the NESS has a hand in calling out unsafe medical practices, denouncing anti-vaccination protesters, stopping creationists from getting the upper hand in schools, disproving psychics, and have generally tried to become a force for change and for legislation that supports science.
