* WastebasketBall: Not with paper, but with disposable cups. While waiting for Tremayne to get out of a meeting, Richard aims and gets his cup in the precise centre of the basket and Sharron outdoes him by throwing hers inside his.

* SuperSenses: They have much better hearing than normal humans and they can also hear frequencies that are unheard by the normal human ear, which combined with them being able to speak at a different frequency allows them to communicate without being overheard.

* CombatPragmatist
* DeadpanSnarker: All of them, of one sort or another, though the award for best (and most frequent) snarker must go to Richard.
* DemolitionsExpert: Each of them have varying levels of expertise with defusing bombs (and different expertise with different sorts of bombs), though Richard probably has the most training and enjoys planting bombs (while waiting at a rendezvous point with an ally, the ally wonders whether they'd be able to see the explosion from the bombs Richard designed and is planting; Craig assures him that, knowing Richard, you'd be able to see it from the moon).
* ElectricTorture: The favoured method of torture of the villain in "The Fanatics."
* FictionalCounterpart: Nemesis is one to Interpol, which makes the heroes the fictional counterpart of {{Interpol Special Agent}}s.
* FightingYourFriend: What happens when [[spoiler: Richard is [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed via drugs into believing Craig is his worst enemy]].]]
* HealingFactor: A power shared by the Champions. Craig's seems to work the fastest, which is probably a good thing since he's a risk taker and the most likely to get into a big scrap.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: Sharron and Craig. They're never seen to act on it, but they're pretty clearly attracted to each other, never more so obvious then when they occasionally go UndercoverAsLovers. Though YMMV.
* InnateNightVision: Another of their powers.
* ISurrenderSuckers: Richard allows himself to be abducted in "The Gilded Cage" to find out why someone would want to abduct him and bring them down.
