* OurElvesAreBetter: Sportacus was a traditional Icelandic Elf named Íþróttaálfurinn ("The Sports Elf") in the original Latibær plays. In addition to being amazingly fit and agile, he also had magical powers. To make the character more universal, he was changed into a superhero for the TV series.
** Although it hasn't been confirmed, it's possible he is still an Elf in the TV series. His ears are always covered, he owns a magical crystal and can apparently grant wishes, he leads a very hidden life and it would certainly explain why he is able to perform such amazing feats in every episode.
*** It's worth mentioning that he's still an Elf in the TV Series dub in Iceland.
* PantyShot: No comment.

* TheFairFolk: Although he got downright cuddly in later adaptations, the forerunner of the character who became Sportacus is damn scary, though technically good, in the first play. There are times this troper finds herself wondering if Áfram Latibær's moral isn't actually supposed to be "behave, or the big bad scary Sports Elf will get you".

[=LazyTown=] is a 2004 children's show produced in Iceland, the brain child of former athlete Magnús Scheving (who also plays the hero, Sportacus). Its primary focus is promoting healthy eating and exercise. It's notable for being both educational ''and'' freaking hilarious, and shows some [[TheCastShowoff awesome stunts]] each episode.

* HelpingGrannyCrossTheStreet
** Robbie Rotten, ([[PaperThinDisguise poorly-disguised]] as a [[ScoutOut Boys Scouts leader]]), is asked by the kids whether they'll learn how to earn badges, such as performing this trope. Robbie then decides to do this to Miss Busybody, who's about to cross the road, and makes her do it [[TimeLapse several times very quickly]] until she collapses in the street.
**In another installment, "Robbie's Dream Team," Robbie's disguise of the day is a little old lady crossing the street, in order to lure Sportacus into helping him. After Sportacus does so, he "thanks" him by giving him a sugar apple that knocks Sportacus out cold, allowing the titular dream-team of Robbie lookalikes to drag him to Robbie's lair.

* WhatHaveIDone: Robbie says this word for word after his scheme causes a chain of events that ends up with Sportacus's airship on a collision course with Pixel's house while Robbie is hanging out of the bottom of it. Sportacus barely averts the disaster in time.
