* PaperThinDisguise: The episode "The Taunt Heard Round the World" featured a news anchor interviewing people on the street about their opinion on what was going on. Each "interviewee" though, was actually the news van driver in an absurdly thin disguise, including GrouchoGlasses for one. When called out he explained it was because they couldn't find anyone to interview.

* ProductPlacement: Did ''COMPAQ'' hope this show would help drum up business? Possibly not, as in one of the early episodes Sydney remarks Sam's computer was a piece of crap until becoming Servo somehow turned it into a supercomputer.
** Younger tropers might not remember, but around the time this show was being made, Compaq were as ubiquitous as Dell are in 2013, and offered similar bulk discounts for corporate and public-sector clients. Chances are the producers simply phoned up someone in the IT office and asked them if they could borrow a few [=PCs=] for props, and Compaq-branded kit was all they had on hand.

supercomputer. And that's not even going to the point that at one point in the show, even the laptops are made by Compaq.

* GenderScoff: After obtaining a small victory against Sam Collins in "Samurize", Malcolm subverts the usual frase by saying "can't throw them at a nuclear reactor" instead of "can't live without 'em".

Yet another in the wake of post-''Franchise/PowerRangers'' superhero shows adapted from Japanese ''tokusatsu'' series. Adapted from ''Series/DenkouChoujinGridman'' ("Electric Superhuman Gridman"), '''''Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad''''' (yes, that is [[XtremeKoolLetterz "Syber" with an "S"]]) tells the story of Sam Collins, a high school student, guitarist and video game programmer who, after being hit by a power surge through his guitar, briefly vanishes, only to reappear with a wrist-mounted doohickey!

* MagicalComputer: This is the only explanation for some of the things Malcolm's able to do by infecting a computer with one of his viruses, like turning water into acid by infecting a computer at the water treatment plant, or how some of the viruses are able to get into sytems with nothing computerized to infect, like a wind-up alarm clock or cooking timer.

* CompositeCharacter: While [[Series/DenkouChoujinGridman Naoto Sho and Gridman]] were separate characters who merged together, Sam Collins and Servo are one and the same.

* LazyBackup: In most fights Sam will go in by himself to fight the monster, get pounded, and at this point his friends, who were watching the whole time, will decide that ''now'' they should go into the computer as well to help out.

* CoconutSuperpowers: While obviously the virus monsters' offensive powers used against the Syber Squad could be shown, thanks to the show only having four sets they couldn't actually do more than tell the viewer secondhand about the real world effects of their meddling like creating a force field dividing the city in half or somehow turning drinking water into acid.
