* GadgeteerGenius: Both heroes and villains fall into this category.
** Interestingly, occasionally the heroes's gadgets don't work properly, notably in "The Night of the Deadly Bubble" [[spoiler: when Jim and the GirlOfTheWeek are trapped in a room filling with steam; the explosives Jim tries to use to get out won't light because the matches are too damp. You'll just have to watch the episode to see how they escape...]]

* GoodOldFisticuffs: And how; Conrad has been quoted as saying it's perhaps just as well the show was canceled when it was, as making it was so physically taxing for him and the stunt crew.
** Plus, unlike many TV stars of that time (and this time), it's clearly Conrad doing most of his own stunts. One of these stunts very nearly got him killed.

* TheCastShowoff: Robert Conrad really (and often literally) threw himself into the fight scenes, so much so that he was prone to splitting his pants (something not always fixed in the editing room - see "The Night of the Pistoleros"). Ross Martin actually called his own role "a showoff's showcase."

A 1960's TV series which combined two then-popular genres: TheWestern and the SpyDrama, following the anachronistic adventures of two Secret Service agents roaming the western United States during the UsefulNotes/UlyssesSGrant administration. James West (Robert Conrad) was a borderline [[TheAce Ace]], the ladykilling man of action, while his partner Artemus Gordon (Ross Martin) was a GadgeteerGenius and MasterOfDisguise. (Based on his work in this series, Martin the actor easily qualifies as a ''RealLife'' example of the latter.) The duo battled a wild assortment of [[MadScientist mad scientists]] and criminal masterminds, their most persistent foe being the evil-genius dwarf Dr. Miguelito Loveless (Michael Dunn). Depending on how exacting a person's definition of "{{Steampunk}}" is, this series could be said to be the highest-profile example of the genre ever to appear on American live-action TV.
