* AwesomeYetImpractical: Fistworthiness itself, as it turns out. We eventually learn that Steve has derived it from another way of life that uses The Fist for peace and harmony. The Fist Team tries to fight them, but get their asses handed to them. Steve only wins when he does things their way, but reverts back almost immediately.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Well, more like Corrupt City Council Leader. Not only is he a baby eating, shapeshifting snake man, but the rest of the Council are apparently zombies. He also pilots a giant robot. All this is put to use just to evict the Fist Team from their new headquarters. And it doesn't work.

* DownerEnding: Technically. The series ends with The Fist Team going back in time and changing the future to be more Fistworthy. This creates a dystopian future where Steve is an vicious emperor constantly spouting Anti-Weakness Propaganda. Womp finds out and is set on a mission to stop it. He fails. However, for the rest of the cast, this is a good thing.

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Or more like, Fist cannot comprehend Weakness.
* EvilTwin: Blue Womp to regular Orange Womp, though he's more of an idiot Jerkass than evil. Also, Steve Goxx, though this is an interesting case in that he doesn't appear on the show, but has his own page in the character section of the website. It can be assumed that it was just a guy who happened to look like him one of the makers saw.

** The Monks of the Fist from Series II seem nice enough (at least compared to Steve), but they still lied to Ballistic Man so he'd waste his life as their guard.

** Mephisto gives Tara a handmade device to cut through Steve's safe so she can get the tokens used to control her, when he had nothing to gain from it.



* SixthRanger: Tina T replaces Mephisto when he is possessed. In Series Two, we get Tara, a kickass android chick who can transform into a plethora of devices (most prominently, a Vending Machine). She was actually on par with Steve in combat ability.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Womp delivers one to Steve in ''Ultimate Weapon,'' pointing out how he loves telling people how Weak they are, but almost never does any work himself. [[SubvertedTrope This infuriates Steve enough to recover from a broken leg through sheer willpower.]]
