* [[CaliforniaDoubling Australia Doubling:]] When Elizabeth traps herself and Toby in a virtual old West town, the surrounding terrain looks an awful lot like Australia, complete with eucalyptus trees everywhere. It becomes even more blatant when Toby and Elizabeth ride off into a billabong. A similar situation occurs when Russ is sent back in time to what must be Paleolithic Europe, but which couldn't look less like the Australian outback.



* DawsonCasting: Though it's never stated on the show how old the characters are, the promotional works for the show refer to them as 15 year olds at the time of the pilot. The main cast were actually 18-19 years old at the time it was filmed.



* FridgeHorror: Elizabeth makes a clone of Principal Vyner that she uses to administer the school by proxy for her. It is shown to be rapidly prematurely ageing and to have fairly normal human intelligence and self-awareness though highly immature and is effectively psychologically abused by Elizabeth, completely willing to follow any instructions like a small child and deeply anxious when they fail. What happened to her? Did she degenerate and die painfully like Dolly the sheep? Nobody mentions her after Elizabeth is foiled. She basically created a disposable child in a middle-aged women's body that was slowly dying, abused them and left them psychologically damaged and unable to live a normal life.



* MissingMom: A framed photograph of Toby and his parents when he was young is prominent in his room, it's implied in one episode early on that she is dead and she is never mentioned again.
* MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness: Varies hugely but mostly on the soft side.

* TheEndOrIsIt: The last scene of the first series reveals [[spoiler:Elizabeth still has the settings for the MFE ('Genius code') to turn herself back into a genius and ends with a close-up of her giving a KubrickStare before turning to give our unaware heroes ([[MistreatmentInducedBetrayal And Verity]]) a long PsychoticSmirk.]]

* ViewersAreGoldfish: The voice-over in the intro to every episode: "Hi! I'm Toby. I'm just a regular student. Well, I was before I got zapped, now I'm some kind of science genius! The only problem is, Elizabeth is too!"

* AndTheAdventureContinues: Unlike the first series, the second series ends with both Toby and Elizabeth still having their abilities. The final scene has Russ accidentally turn a Koala into a 50 foot monster which destroys Toby's roof with everyone simply laughing and about to spring into action to deal with it.



* BigEater: Russ.

to:

* BalefulPolymorph: An episode features Garth's little cousin accidentally having his DNA be progressively hybridised with that of a spider, leading to him being able to spit webbing and behave more like a spider before being reversed. Russ and Sacha are turned into flies by a ray set up by Elizabeth. Elizabeth also later uses a similar device to painfully transform Toby progressively into a more and more frog-like creature in an attempt to cause him to act more bizarrely and make a poor first impression on his girlfriends parents. (Yes, that is how insane this show can get, even with the high bar that Aussie kids TV shows are at.)
* BigEater: Russ.Russ, an episode even features him in an eating contest, except Sacha's mind is in his body.


Added DiffLines:

* CountryCousin: Toby's cousin Sacha Johnson lives with Toby and his father as she comes from the country to attend school in the city.


Added DiffLines:

* HumanPopsicle: Happens to Elizabeth when Toby decides to flash freeze her in order to kill a virus that threatens her life. A version also happens to Mr Woods when he gets trapped in a crystal structure, for some reason.


Added DiffLines:

* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: An episode involves Verity accidentally becoming a part plant hybrid and occasionally undergoing a physical transformation into a swamp monster before transforming back, keeping it a secret and leading her to terrorise the local community.


Added DiffLines:

* NaiveNewcomer: Sacha serves as this briefly in the first episode of the second season.
* OhNoNotAgain: When Toby clones a dinosaur for the second time it goes as well as the first.

* Intangibility: Elizabeth develops a means of making matter capable of passing through other solid matter given the application of enough force by making it's inter-atomic bonds slacker. However, it leaves the object changed prone to eventual disintegration and she requires Toby's help to find Jack and save his arm after he accidentally exposes himself. In a later episode she uses a spray to give a similar temporary effect as part of an elaborate ghost prank.
* Invisibility: An early episode has Toby develop an invisibility paint to hide the damaged car of their teacher. Elizabeth later develops her own invisibility paint, but it apparently adheres best to skin and hair. Leading her to become an [[InvisibleStreaker Invisible Streaker]] in order to spy on and ruin Toby's date with Nikki. Unfortunately for her, as with Toby's paint, it was [[CueTheRain water soluble...]]

* [[CaliforniaDoubling Australia Doubling]] When Elizabeth traps herself and Toby in a virtual old West town, the surrounding terrain looks an awful lot like Australia, complete with eucalyptus trees everywhere. It becomes even more blatant when Toby and Elizabeth ride off into a billabong. A similar situation occurs when Russ is sent back in time to what must be Paleolithic Europe, but which couldn't look less like the Australian outback.

* KissOfLife: Subverted when Russ reluctantly tries this on an unconcious Elizabeth only for her to wake up just in time and immediately punch him in the face.
