* {{Jerkass}}: All of the main characters, really. The Mayor is the biggest example, but there's a very good reason the Action League is bad at being superheroes - they're not only incredibly incompetent, they're lazy and much more willing to slack off and/or watch someone get hurt right in front of them than risk their necks. At least The Chief is only a JerkAss to the team.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* TooDumbToLive: ''Every'' character on the show (save for special guests and a one-off villain whose whole schtick was being smart and GenreSavvy.). Yes, even [[GeniusDitz Bill the Lab Guy]].

* EvilKnockoff: Robo-Flesh, to the FLesh. The same guy, except with giant metal bolts sticking out of his body. Somehow, the rest of the League can't tell them apart.

* ShooOutTheNewGuy: Bill the Lab Guy's teenage daughter, Quarky. Introduced in ''KaBlam!'s'' second season premier (if we're going by production order), and was in a bunch of episodes from that season. [[TheScrappy Fans found her rather annoying]], and after "The Quarky Syndrome", she never appeared again.

%% commented out as ZeroContextExample * BlackComedy %% commented out as ZeroContextExample BlackComedy: Much of the humor in this show came from the League getting dismembered, broken apart, or otherwise destroyed. Of course, since they were toys, [[BloodlessCarnage there was no blood]], but it's still pretty graphic. * BlessedWithSuck: Meltman.Meltman. He has the power to... melt. And that's about it. It doesn't help that he's treated as a ButtMonkey by the rest of the cast.

%% commented out as ZeroContextExample * IdiotHero: Just about The Flesh. Stinky Diver even uses this to the entire cast.team's advantage in one episode. As Flesh is fighting Robo-Flesh, Stinky yells out "Hey, stupid!" When Flesh responds with "What?" that's what finally convinces the League that he's the real Flesh. * {{Incoming}}: Meltman yells this to warn the League of a flying cinder block... after it's already hit them.

* {{Leitmotif}}: "Thunder Girl! Flying like thunder! How other people must wonder, what it's like to be me!" ** The Mayor has a cool-sounding theme whenever he appears.

cutting sinkhole/misuse of Exactly What It Says On The Tin, see dedicated cleanup thread; commenting out some Zero Context Examples; removing a trope name alteration — again per Administrivia.Sinkhole; cutting cruft/review from Most Common Superpower; other minor stuff
Our heroes were The Flesh (a ''Series/ConanTheAdventurer'' doll modified to replace his hips/loincloth with a Ken type bulge who was described as "super-strong and super-naked"), Thunder Girl (a superheroine with a [[=Sindy=]] doll head who just flew around and complained about how stupid her teammates were, even though she could be just as clueless as the others), Stinky Diver (a loose cannon with a thick British accent and perpetual body odor, and is made from a GIJoe Shipwreck action figure) and Melt-Man (a not-too-bright melted {{GI Joe}}-like figurine "with the power to... ''melt!''"). They tended to suffer horrible injuries. They were accompanied by The Chief, who would often shout "BLAST IT!" and berate the team for their screw-ups; Justice the Dog, and Bill the Lab Guy, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin lab guy]] who spoke in monotone, and often made strange inventions and devices to help the League, though these would often be stolen or otherwise used to harm the League.
