* Pride: As seen in the BerserkButton section, do ''not'' let one of the Rivera men hear you questioning his pride/name or call him anything equivalent to the word "coward". It will end ''very'' bad for you.

* MagnificentMustachesOfMexico: ''Oh yes.'' For starters there is the Mustache Mafia, Manny once nearly goes into a BSOD in fear of not having a mustache which leads to Raul's creation, and pretty much every adult male character sports a mustache.

** IronicName: "Frida" actually translates to "peace" and some derivatives also translate to "good counselor"...Frida is usually anything but those meanings.

to:

** Manny and Frida's names were actually based off of Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera; both Manny and Frida ultimately take up the arts as their career paths (Manny an artist and Frida a songwriter/rock star).

IronicName: While most likely a coincidence (or not?), "Frida" actually translates to "peace" and some derivatives also translate to "good counselor"...Frida Suarez is usually anything but those meanings.

* StaticCharacter: Despite all of the good vs. evil choices Manny never really develops outside of his initial character throughout the course of the series. The same could be said for Frida.
** They actually take this to the logical extreme in the evil ending of "The Good, the Bad, and El Tigre" where Manny and Frida were said to retain their childish, trouble-making antics for ''70 years'', complete with not even changing their outfits!

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Played with in "El Tigre, El Jefe" when Manny decides to help kids at school after Rodolfo catches him tee-peeing the school and tries to convince him that GoodFeelsGood. When Manny is unsuccessful in helping a kid with his homework, he proceeds to use El Tigre to ''threaten the kid's life'' in order to make the kid get a gold star. Manny then proceeds to harass the other kids into doing things such as only eating dry crackers when wearing white shirts, playing banjos instead of playing yo-yos, and not allowing anyone to wear high heels. This continues to the point that Manny has the kids building staues of him and hanging up propaganda posters in his name, but then Senior Siniestro finally takes him down...in order for ''him'' to force the kids into building a gigantic robot horse that he was planning on wreaking havoc with.

* PreInsanityReveal: The several-generations-back original holder of the belt buckle started out sane, but slowly lost his mind from trying to decide whether to be good or evil. We finally meet him in the Day of the Dead episode. Because he's been dead and without he belt buckle for so long, he's mostly lucid, but the insanity is still lurking under the surface.

* EyeScream: Nothing graphic, but Lady Gobbler sometimes removes her glass eye with the socket visible and one of the Golden Eagle Twins signed El Oso's eyeballs (all while Manny was freaking out on screen while the audio could be heard).
