* LeeroyJenkins: In due part because he didn't trust Elvis's judgement due to his tendency to bungle when not actively doing his job, Arnold goes right ahead in trying to rescue Mrs. Chen and Lily who are stranded on top of their car in the flooded streets of Pontypandy while ignoring Elvis's pleas to wait for Ellie to return with Venus so she could secure the Firefighters and the car with a line. Arnold does manage to save Lily and bring her to Elvis, but ends up losing his footing on his return trip for Mrs. Chen and would have been washed away were it not for her holding on to his hand at the last minute. Brave he may have been, but were it not for Elvis rescuing him (plus Mrs. Chen) after being secured by Venus' tow wench, he may well have been lost on his first big emergency in Pontypandy. To Arnold's credit, however, he does apologize to Elvis afterword.

* {{Tearjerker}}: The episode "Steele Under Par", when Station Officer Steele is forced to retire from his job. Interestingly the bittersweet music which plays in the retirement party scene was originally used for the Christmas presents scene in "Snow Business".

** Sarah and James averted it in the non-CGI series, where they got along well and were always the [[Main/OnlySaneMan Only Sane Kids]] compared to Norman. They played this trope straight in the CGI series, probably because it's more realistic.

There are, apparently, ''two'' sets of voice actors for most of the characters, one meant for the UK and one the US (the US version is actually dubbed in Canada by, of all studios, Ocean Group), with the strange exception of Tom and Moose who have the same voice actor in both sets, since they're supposed to be foreigners (Australian and Canadian, respectively). In addition, Station Officer Steele is addressed as Fire Captain Steele and Chief Fire Officer Boyce is referred to as Fire Department Chief Boyce instead. The biggest differences with the voices is the general lack of assorted "British" accents, and in a couple of cases, less "harsh" sounding characters, notably with Sarah, James, and Norman, though Gareth inverts the trend. The "in-house" vibe of it makes it come off as a bit different from an out-right re-dub, and it would explain Tom and Moose. Note that the US version is not very common, only appearing on the Fireman Sam US YouTube channel. Beyond that, there's little evidence to suggest the dub even exists at all. Also, the US dub has only been made recently, as PBS Kids Sprout aired the series as late as 2014 with the UK dub.

* CuteButCacophonic: Sarah Jones' voice can reach an incredibly shrill pitch, especially when her brother James is getting into trouble and she's trying to stop him. Her other voice actress tones this down.
