* ActionGirl: Kirsten Landry has the martial skills to leave her sparring partner senseless on the ground, despite the padded sparring equipment, and kill or disable zombies and werewolves with her bare hands. When Captain Dashell asked her if she was doing some sort of jazzer-size in the gym, she explained that it was actually a workout based on her fathers experiences in the military.
* ActionSurvivor: John-John and Carla only begin to give their sound guy respect when he survives a zombie attack without being bitten. Throughout the series he occasionally pitches in to help in fights, once even hitting a zombie with his boom mic and commenting that it even sounded cool.
** Justifed to an extent...the previous episode, they put down their sound guy.

* IncompatibleOrientation: John-John has a minor crush on Carla, complicated by the fact that she is a lesbian. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope In the season one finale she displayed visible jealousy when he flirted with another woman]], [[BiTheWay and kissed him passionately after rescuing him from a vampire. YMMV on whether or not it was sexual per se]].]]

* AccidentalInnuendo: The UTF captain has a habit of spouting accidental innuendoes all the time. Sometimes he becomes aware of it afterwards, sometimes he doesn't and just goes with it in his usual high self-esteem.

* AccidentalMisnaming: Captain Dashell spent the first five episodes mispronouncing Kirsten's name. First he simply mistook it for "Kristen," but when she corrected him he tried to get it right and began inserting random letters (Including at least one 'G') on each new try. He finally got it right in episode six, but he was so preoccupied with work he did not even notice that he had done it, or how much it obviously meant to her.
