* DeathCourse: Abe did this for a publicity stunt in episode two.



* RefugeInAudacity: The segments of Plane Crazy with Principal Scudworth and Skunky-Poo, whose interactions are almost as violent as Itchy and Scratchy, and a fair bit more profane (Skunky-Poo's catchphrase is [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "try and catch me, bitch!"]]).

* RememberTheNewGuy: Poncey in "Litter Kills: Literally", had apparently been JFK's best friend and a beloved person, to the rest of the main cast, and was treated like he'd always been there, since the beginning.

* AffablyEvil: The Board of Shadowy Figures, particularly its leader (voiced by co-creator Bill Lawrence). He always speaks in a calm voice when talking to Scudworth and retains a dry sense of humor throughout the dinner in episode 4. This still does not eclipse the fact that he strongly considers killing Scudworth and maintaining strong control over the clones, whom he regards as little more than objects, rather than humans, to serve as a super army for future purposes. In spite of this, he and the other members try their best to assure the clones can live in a peaceful environment and have as normal a teenaged life as possible.

* BodyHorror: Some clones such as Marie Curie didnt quite get through the cloning process properly. Also, Ghandi's increasingly disturbing appearance during "Election Bluu-galoo", from consuming Xtreme Blu, which is really just pancake batter and blue house paint.

* FacialHorror: In ''Snowflake Day'', Abe keeps getting gruesomely injured in his face and mouth. First he is forced by Napoleon to eat a glass he dropped on the floor during his shift at the dish pit at TGI Chili's, then accidently cuts his cheek open with the knork (a combined knife and fork he and Ghandi invented) when eating with it, then gets even MORE injured when he loses control of a motorized version of said utensil, and finally, when he eats a wienie tot that Joan hid a razorblade in during a fit of anti-holiday pique.

* {{Sliding Scale of Idealism Versus Cynicism}}: Scudworth and all 5 of the clones valiantly try to reach their goals all throughout the series. JFK and Cleo seem to have it made the best, more than most typical 16 year olds. By the show's end, the angst and lust soon frustrates all of the teenaged characters and the circumstances do not permit them to absolve them. As for Scudworth, his plans to build a theme park island filled with the clones has been "put on ice" so to speak.

* BlackComedy: Much of the show's humor comes from its facetious treatment of issues usually presented seriously on teen dramas (e.g. drug abuse, discrimination, death). Not to mention the gore.
