* AnAesop: Willy's family may have their quirks and their problems, but at least they're fundamentally decent people who try their best and aren't in denial about who they are.

* KickTheDog: The D'Angelos come off as uptight and pompous, but they '''really''' lose whatever likability once you hear the things they have to say about Willy's family. (Who they've never even met!) It's impossible to blame Willy for flipping his lid like he does.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Willy is thoroughly excited to be living a normal life and is so worried that his dad will ruin that chance for him and he pretty much tries to pretend they aren't related. He eventually grows past this but never stops wanting to do things that normal kids do instead of using his family's wealth.

* AwwLookTheyDoLoveEachOther: Willy will readily admit that his parents drive him batty and being MistakenForSubculture is one of the biggest annoyances of his life. However, it's clear that he does care a lot about his parents and ''never'' takes any badmouthing of them lying down.

* FieryRedhead: Subverted, as Willy is about as mild-mannered as they get most of the time.

Sawchuck serves as a fairly thuggish one, with Willy as his primary target.

BumblingDad: Well, Rock tries. Doesn't always succeed but man does he try.

%%* * FishOutOfWater: The Zillas.Zillas really have no idea how to operate in normal lives. Willy and Serenity acclimate eventually; Rock and Crystal not so much.

JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Serenity.Serenity. She never misses a chance to mess with her brother but we do get to see that she does love him and the rest of her family.



** Taken UpToEleven with Angela D'Angelo's parents, who assume Willy's mother is some tramp and gold digger despite just seeing her from a distance once, and Willy's only hope of dating their daughter was to pretend he had different parents (which was blown out of the water once they started making comments about how awful the Zillas were).

* InTheBlood: Willy ''is'' a good musician, he just prefers a simple trumpet and more classic songs. Likewise, Serenity got her dad's materialism, though she's more bratty with it, and Willy seems to get his sense of understanding from his mother.
** Rock's own father is revealed to be a prominent classical musician, meaning musical talent really ''does'' run in the Zilla bloodline.
** Rock's mother is a closet biker, explaining where he got his wild side from.
