* ToxicWasteCanDoAnything: The premise of the show is that an earthquake ruptures the turf of a sports stadium, venting toxic gases from long-buried industrial waste. The athletes get dosed with this gas, which mutates them into ugly but superhuman creatures that can suffer horrific damage without dying or being convalescent more than a few hours.

As there were games based on two different sports but featuring a lot of the same characters, the show ran with it by having all the teams competing in multiple sports (though still mostly football), as well as events like monster truck races and wrestling matches. Also keeping in the spirit of the games it was common for players to lose body parts in the course of the games. To keep from killing off the entire cast within three episodes, a device called "the rujvenator" was introduced that could [[GoodThingYouCanHeal heal practically any injury]] by bathing the injured mutants in certain chemical mixtures.

* {{Retcon}}: During the first season players would often be said to spending weeks in the rujvenator recovering from their injuries. Seeming to realize a sports league couldn't operate with its players out for that long after every single game, by the second season spending a day in the rujvenator is considered a long time.

* BrokenAesop: In one episode, evil mutants try to trick some adolescent fans into jumping into toxic waste to mutate themselves and be more like their idols in the League. The kids hesitate because "norms can't mutate". The very existence of the Mutant League is proof that isn't true. Everyone in it--from the players, refs, coaches, team owners, play-by-play guy and various mutants who had nothing to do with the League--''were'' ordinary humans once upon a time. Trying to mutate yourself wouldn't be an easy or smart thing to do, sure. But obviously it can be done.

* WithMyHandsTied: Discussed and parodied in the Season 2 episode "Enter the Skeletoid", when Razor Kidd tells the strong {{Badass}}, "I can beat you with one hand tied behind my back!" Of course, the strong guy rips off Razor's arm as a literal response, and the latter snaps back, "Hey! I said ''tied!''" Razor even tries to kick the strong one, who quickly rips off his leg as well!
