* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Played with in the episode [[IncrediblyLamePun Defeeted]]. As far as Sportacus and the mayor are concerned, the kids not wanting to play outside is ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor just as serious]]'' as a natural disaster:

'''Mayor''': "Well..."\\
'''Sportacus''': "Flood?"\\
'''Mayor''': "No."\\
'''Sportacus''': "Fire?"\\
'''Mayor''': "No."\\
'''Sportacus''': "Earthquake?"\\
'''Mayor''': "No."\\
'''Sportacus''': "Thunderstorm?"\\
'''Mayor''': "Actually...it's that nobody wants to go outside and play!"\\
'''Sportacus''': "What?! That ''is'' terrible!"

* AscendedMeme: Several songs from the show have been turned into memes with people editing them in various ways, with "We Are Number One" being one of the most popular, which coincided with Robbie Rotten's actor Stefan Karl being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This then lead to taking advantage of the meme's popularity to donate to Stefan Karl's cancer fund. Capitalizing on the meme, the official [=YouTube=] channel uploaded "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uN-UUeh-yA We Are Number One but it's the original and it's 1 hour long]]".

** The official channel also uploaded "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQt6G8slAvQ&spfreload=5 Mine Song but 'Mine' is replaced with 'Pirate'!]], killing two birds with one stone. This time however, [[OverlyLongGag the one hour length isn't justified]] (though it's safe to assume it's just a way to cheaply generate ad-revenue).
** Even before the official [=YouTube=] channel started doing it, acknowledging the memes goes back even farther. In "[=LazyTown's=] Greatest Hits", Robbie picks "You Are a Pirate" as his favorite [=LazyTown=] song. [[SarcasmMode Gee, I wonder why]].



* MythologyGag: References back to the Icelandic plays in the television show.
** In "[[Recap/LazyTownS3E12TheLazyCup The Lazy Cup]]", when the Soccerbots confront Ziggy, Stingy and Stephanie, they are disguised as [[Recap/LazyTownS3E1Roboticus Roboticus]], [[Recap/LazyTownS1E21PlayDay a gorilla]], [[Recap/LazyTownS1E13CryDinosaur a dinosaur]], [[Recap/LazyTownS3E3LittlePinkRidingHood the Big Bad Wolf]] and [[Recap/LazyTownS2E6SnowMonster a snow monster]].

* {{AesopAmnesia}}/{{NegativeContinuity}}: It's no wonder the town needs a superhero; No matter how many times Sportacus teaches the kids the importance of eating healthy, exercising often and being kind to each other, they always revert back to their unhealthy, lazy, greedy and generally unpleasant ways. You know, like normal kids.
