* BlondGuysAreEvil: Bobo jokingly says this of Noah in "Guy vs. Guy". There is a certian slug girl from "Breach" who tried to kill Rex. Roswell from the Consortium counts too. Weaver from "Frostbite". Braden Moses from "A Family Holiday".

* DysfunctionJunction: Six is the closest thing Rex has to a proper father. Which makes Doc Holiday his "mom". His mom who he has been known to ''hit on''

** The nanites could be the cure for ANYTHING: Cancer, AIDS, genetic malformations, lost limbs, you name it. That would be of course if they had actually been finished before The Event

** His character design (especially [[IconicOutfit the memetic red jacket]])is very similar to [[NoMoreHeroes Travis Touchdown's]], his mechanisms have a similar aesthetic to Travis' Beam Katanas, and they have very similar thrillseeking personalities (ignoring Travis' bloodlust and perversion, thankfully). His design and powers are also reminiscent of [[WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}} another]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce Man of Action]] [[WesternAnimation/Ben10UltimateAlien character]]. His powers are also similar to [[VideoGame/{{Prototype}} Alex Mercer]].

Primary tactic used by [[ChessMaster Van Kleiss]].



*** As of "Black and White", White Knight has joined the club.

*** ** As of "Black and White", White Knight has joined the club.



** BiggerBad: The Consortium, who are behind Providence and have their own agenda.



* CrapsackWorld: As cool and fun as Rex's adventures may appear, the fact that every single living thing on the planet has been infected with Nanites and could potentially mutate into a hideous abomination at any time, without any warning or knowledge of what they could turn into, makes it a rather bleak place to live for your average person. What's worse, while Rex may be able to cure E.V.Os, it doesn't work with all of them, so those who mutate may never turn back. On the bright side, things seem to have improved somewhat from the flashback scenes in "Promises, Promises", since at least now people who turn have a chance of being cured, and it really looked like humanity might just outright go extinct before Rex.
** [[spoiler:Then there's Kiev, Ukraine. When the event happened, the unlucky bastards living there were hit with the single largest concentration of Nanites (because Earth's magnetic field funneled a huge amount to it). The whole city went E.V.O, and lacking the resources to deal with the problem (Providence didn't even exist), the world decided to do the only rational thing: put a giant spherical containment field around that hell-hole and never speak of it again.]]
*** On the bright side, [[spoiler:Alpha kills everything there and absorbs their Nanites in "Heroes United". It's "just" a ghost town now.]]
* CrazyPrepared: White Knight's MiniMecha and PoweredArmor (yes, he manages both at the same time) ''will'' have a weapon for the situation, and ''will'' keep him safe from Nanites. Period.

** The series was already pretty dark but, from season 2 onward the series is just getting darker as it goes along with the [[MindRape treatment of evos]], [[CategoryTraitor Rex being a traitor to his own kind]], [[GoodIsNotNice a new even more unfriendly Providence with the new leader Black Knight]], and [[BiggerBad Providence's higher ups being revealed as]] [[AGodAmI having not so noble intentions]].

* LimitedWardrobe: Most of the characters. Lampshaded right off the bat when Holiday asks Six if he's [[TheMenInBlack ever going to buy another suit]]. Rex actually manages to do this trope through a flashback, wearing the exact same clothes when he was five years younger. Even Six had a different outfit back then.
** Actually if you go back and re-watch that episode you will see that Rex's outfit was different: black shirt not white, blue jeans not leather(?), no goggles and no gloves.
