* ThereAreNoTherapists: And Trudy (among others) really, really needs one. Pretty literal use of the trope considering there's no adults at all.

** BigBad: Ram, the leader.
** TheDragon: Jay, who's essentially the military muscle.
** TheBrute: Ved, especially during the takeover of the city.

* VillainousLegacy: Zoot, the leader of the Locos in season 1, continues to effect events long after his death. These include the Chosen, a fanatical cult who revere Zoot as a god, and a straight-up resurrection of his old tribe in the form of the Zootists.

* CanadaDoesNotExist: Made in New Zealand, and starring an all-New Zealand cast with distinctive New Zealand accents ... but set in '''"The City"''', with absolutely no obvious landmarks anywhere. Not only that, but on the rare occasions early on in the show when old money from before the apocalypse was shown, it seemed to be British coinage.
** In particular, Lex tossing a 50 pence piece, and Ryan hoarding thousands in £50 notes- both shown in the first series
** Zoot's Police Car was a New Zealand/Australian model, but with blue insignia more typical of American police cars. They really went out of their way to avoid setting that show in a specific country.
** Also, in one episode, Jack finds a tape with footage of the President (presumably of the United States, given his American accent and other clues in the footage); later, he simply refers to the character on that tape as "The President" (not "The American President" as we would expect a non-US native to call him). This actually implies that TheCity is in American territory, despite the kids' mostly New Zealand accents and speech idioms.
** However, even though the actors all had fairly obvious NZ accents, it was put about on the (early '00s, now obsolete) Tribeworld Message board that Word of God stated that all of the actors were put through some kind of American accent training. Yes, they're still obviously from NZ, but when you look at some of the DVD extras, especially with some of the older actors, the NZ accent was somewhat toned down within the series' universe. Not a lot, but there's a definite if subtle difference.

* Occasionally (when the setting becomes more rural or gets close to the edge of town) there are establishing shots featuring wildlife. Let's put it this way, that wildlife does not look British.

* GangOfHats: The various teenage tribes are identifiable largely by costumes and color schemes (Locos wear red and black; Demon Dogs wear silver; Mozquitos are all female and dress like dominatrices with insect masks, etc.), except for the main tribe, the Mallrats, who all wear very individualistic costumes, being a RagTagBunchOfMisfits.

* TheQuisling: Ebony for the Technos in season 4. She doesn't quite realize this at first, and thinks they're equal partners. Then they move into her mansion, and in a later episode Ram reminds her that she's just a puppet before [[KickTheDog shooting one of his minions in front of her]].

* ResemblanceReveal: The reveal of Java and Siva, Ebony's sisters in Series 4. The sisters unmistakeably look like Ebony, with a similar figure, facial features, poise and long, thin braids (and [[RealLifeRelative are in fact related in real life]]). Prior to the reveal, they spent several episodes wearing robot-like masks.

** Ebony to Java and Siva when they were with the Locos. Though the sisters had a volatile relationship even before the virus, they swore to start fresh and take care of each other after their family died. Java and Siva were uncomfortable being with the Locos because of their violent behavior and wanted to leave, but Ebony ratted out their intentions to Zoot and they were imprisoned with the intention of being executed. Even though they were later released, Ebony believed they'd died and barely batted an eyelash and continued on with her life as if they never existed. [[spoiler: their appearance in season 4 and first confrontation with Ebony was on of the few times Ebony showed real fear at that point.]]

* VikingFuneral: During Season 1, [[spoiler: Zoot, the psychotic leader of tribe Locos,]] gets a Viking-style sendoff as well. This is mainly because the local cemetary has been overrun by members of a hostile rival tribe, but also because (as [[spoiler: his brother]] Bray explains) "[[spoiler: Zoot]] thought of himself as a warrior chief."

* NeverLand: The kids drama contains a fairly dark example: a setting of [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld long-lived, unaging]] children who sicken and die upon reaching long-delayed adolescence.
