* FollowTheLeader: Has a rather similar premise to ''Series/JohnDoe'', another TV series about someone who wakes up naked in Seattle with no memory of his past, who possesses a vast amount of knowledge and who is being watched by a mysterious MegaCorp. The crucial difference is that Kyle simply assimilates information at an incredible rate, while John started off knowing everything, Kyle [[spoiler: was a 16-year old science experiment]] while John [[spoiler: was a ressurected dead man]], and Kyle had NoSocialSkills while John was a fairly average man. Of course, [[FishOutOfWater the premise itself is not original]].

* AwesomenessByAnalysis

to:

* AwesomenessByAnalysisAwesomenessByAnalysis: Kyle and Jesse both have super advanced brains and can copy anything by watching or doing the math. A good example is when Kyle joins the basketball team at school and can make any shot just by measuring the angles or learns how to fight by watching martial arts movies (he also learned Chinese this way).

* ChangelingFantasyChangelingFantasy: Subverted at the end of the first season when the Kyle supposedly found his real parents. In fact, [[spoiler:he was grown in a lab, the parents are actors, and Kyle goes along with the plan to protect his adoptive family, a situation which lasts a whole episode and then requires Kyle to make up another story for why he's returned.]]

* ConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverStoryConvenientlyUnverifiableCoverStory: Kyle is given a plausible backstory for his lack of memories, intelligence and absence of a navel.

* HilarityEnsues: Alot of the pranks in the show, while funny, would be extremely illegal (as per the description). Notably, Josh sneaking in to Amanda's house and covering for her, is probably some sort of felony.

** TokenEvilTeammate: Jessi, until her (gradual) FaceHeelTurn. Still viewed as a SixthRanger even afterwards.

** Jessi actually is described as having green eyes, making this trope that much more fitting.



** When Jesse tries to jump from the roof, Kyle, Lori, and Josh all step forward and say they'll try too.



** Jessi, despite having memories tends to be like this for most social situations.



* RefugeInAudacity: Apparently in the past Adam Baylin's girlfriend[[spoiler:/counterpart]] Sarah wrote all the answers to a college test on the ceiling of a classroom. The professors, while angry, were far too impressed and shocked to expel her.

* JerkJock: At first it seems that Declan is this trope, but he ends up becoming one of the most awesome characters on the show, and a great friend and confidante to Kyle (and love interest to Lori). Whereas [[spoiler: Charlie, Amanda's boyfriend, starts off as a subversion of this but by Season 2 he's taken to cheating and eventually they break up. Also, he turns out to be highly homophobic - [[HilariousInHindsight ironic considering]] [[{{Glee}} the role his actor would land later on in a highly LGBT-friendly environment.]]]]

* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: Specifically, Kyle [[spoiler: (and later Jessi)]] uses around 50% of his brain, which is why he is so gifted and intelligent.



* DawsonCasting: When the show started, only a few of the main teenage characters were played by actors in their teens, and even they grew up by the time the show ended.



* NinetyPercentOfYourBrain: Specifically, Kyle [[spoiler: (and later Jessi)]] uses around 50% of his brain, which is why he is so gifted and intelligent.



* ScrewedByTheNetwork: ABC Family screwed the show by canceling it with a boatload of unresolved questions.

This may have been is implied to be a joke.joke, though, in response to Josh suggesting that he do something like that earlier in the episode--which begs the question of how he ''actually'' sobered up so quickly.
