Added DiffLines:

* FakeUltimateHero: Val. Early episodes have Tasha in particular more than annoyed at how she and the team do the jobs and Val gets all the credit as even the bad guys who are beaten give Val far more credit than deserved. She does get better as the show goes along.

* TheOneGuy: Between the original owner's departure in the pilot and Johnny's promotion to the main cast in season 3 Quick is the only male member of VIP and main character.

* MoreThanMindControl: Several episodes have shown characters brainwashed, drugged, or otherwise compelled to act in ways they wouldn't normally do through some kind of mind-altering phenomenon.
* TheOneGuy: Between the original owner's departure in the pilot and Johnny's promotion to the main cast in season 3 3, Quick is the only male member of VIP and main character.


Added DiffLines:

* PhenotypeStereotype: All the main characters suffer from this. Val is a blonde from LA, so she's TheDitz. Tasha has a Russian heritage, so she's a former spy, and EthicalSlut. Nikki has an Italian background, so she's the granddaughter of a Mafia Don. Quick's black, so he's from Chicago. Johnny's Asian, so he's a martial artist. The series manages to avoid being offensive with this by showing other characters from the same demographics that '''don't''' fit the stereotypes on a regular basis. Ergo, the stereotypes are just a perk of the main characters and don't deliver any kind of message, intentional or otherwise.
