* StagParty: One episode revolves around Neponen renewing his wedding vows, which naturally involves Pöysti having to arrange one for him with three of his friends. They have plenty of experience for throwing such parties and know that while the generic "get drunk, do something stupid and risky that ends in a brawl" party has been done over and over again. It's what the party will ultimately devolve into anyway, as better and more unique ideas are ridiculously expensive and all the cheaper ones aren't worth doing.

* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: One of the characters in the newer episodes is revealed to be this, He's been lacking in common sense for his entire life. Lucking out in creating a hugely successful iPhone app and striking it rich just made him worse, He has a handlebar mustache and wears a bowler hat with a track suit, has a pet swan in his ball pit. His sister has also been conditioned into being able to interpret his fragmented 2-word sentences [[TranslationYes into much longer wholly legible ones]].

* PlacebotinumEffect: A reverse version of this takes place in an episode where all the liquor stores in Finland end up being closed due to the threat of poisoned booze. A researcher theorizes that the people of Finland are so used to being drunk on Friday nights that they'll attain a state resembling drunkenness at that time even if they haven't drunk anything at all. Not even the researcher himself believes in it, but miraculously enough, it actually does happen at a critical moment. Unfortunately the effect only lasts for a few minutes before everyone becomes instantly wearing off.

* DrugsAreBad: The main theme for one of the new episodes that culminates in each character unsuccessfully lecturing a classroom about them. Pöysti fails because he promotes alcohol as a better option for escapism. Repomies fails because he gets pissed off at the students throwing wads of paper at him, causing him to start swearing and throwing a whiteboard eraser back at one of them. Helga fauks because she instantly calls a female student a slut after she asks her the generic [[MissConception "can you get pregnant from kissing" question]]. [[IdiotBall Neponen is never even considered for the task]] because "he supports Pöysti and is suspicious". Routalempi accidentally manages to save the day by constantly getting distracted by modern school equipment while lecturing. His behavior causes the entire class to think he's an ex-junkie and they [[ScareEmStraight sign up for anti-drugs groups in fear of becoming like him]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Flanderization}}: Both Pöysti and Repomies. In first season, despite their respective faults, both at least try to be competent police officers. Since then, Pöysti has became more self absorbed {{jerkass}} who seems to dislike his own work, whilst Repomies has gone full {{cloud cuckoo lander}}. Interestingly, most of the side characters (especially Routalempi who started as one note joke character) have gone to the opposite direction.

* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: In-universe: Embodied in Reetta Ruusu, whose idea of interpretive dance consists of titles such as "Vagina-dialogue", "The three rooms of manic depression" and "A placenta-eating bourgeoisie subjugates Jeanne d'Arc's lesbian twin sister", while the shows themselves consist of lots of wandering around the stage torturing oneself in lots of imaginative ways. Reetta herself is violent and abusive and surprisingly strong despite her less-than-imposing physique, being able to beat up most anyone who insults her performances and apparently able to [[StealthPun turn guns into ploughshares at a moment's notice]]. She also abuses her dancers by denying them any food or drink before the show, stating that giving them any "weakens their body language", causing many of them to die of exhaustion in the middle of one: apparently she has also died several times during her performances, but has always ended up being revived soon afterwards in some way through a stroke of luck and something electric that ends up working as a MagicalDefibrillator. Finally, her idea of improving acoustics mainly involves blowing up large chunks of whatever building she currently happens to perform in.
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Pöysti, when he ends up being promoted as the new chief due to Repomies's InsaneTrollLogic described above. He claims Routalempi, Helga and Neponen are fighting against his authority when they point out he's the only one who did the very things he implies them to be guilty of (such as complaining about the quality of leadership, ignoring orders and watching TV at work) and tells them to solve the entire underground economy, drug trade and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Bodom_murders Lake Bodom murders]] each by their own and expects them to be done by the next day, his main reasoning for his demands being "If you want to chase after bicycle thieves and rampaging drunks, go somewhere else, over here we only solve major stuff!". He also hires a sculptor to make a statue of him in a toga with olive branches on his head, and stands on chairs while holding speeches to appear taller. His reign of terror is cut short when the facts are pointed out to him and he agrees to discuss things over with the other 3 as he was suggested, at which point they [[RuleOfFunny declare him as a weak leader, tie him up and hoist him up to the flagpole.]]
* UnfortunateNames: A girl named Homo-Petteri: the first part being obvious and named so because "homo is Latin for 'human'", but the second part being a common male name with no explanation given.

* SoBadItsGood: In-universe; Kyösti [[DiscussedTrope goes on at length about this trope]] during one of his many failed dates: it mostly involves his interest towards "shitty B-movies" such as ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'' and trying to make [[ForeignQueasine microwave bacon-chocolate-tofuweiner-marmelade-risotto his friend got him from Japan]] for himself and his current girlfriend for dinner just because the concept of it is SoBadItsGood.
* SorryImGay: The mayor of Kemppainen's hometown had to resort to this (mostly because of Pöysti's suggestion about it being the best option) when Kemppainen took offense to the fact that he happened to know where his wife was, immediately assuming he was stalking her and having sex with her and then further took offense since he assumed the mayor thought she was ugly when he kept denying that he wanted anything to do with her.
* StagParty: One of the newer episodes revolves around Neponen renewing his wedding vows, which naturally involves Pöysti having to arrange one for him with 3 of his friends. All 3 of them have already arranged multiple ones previously and know that while the generic "get drunk, do something stupidly risky and then get your ass kicked" party has been done over and over again, it's what the party will ultimately devolve into as better and more unique ideas are ridiculously expensive and cheaper ones aren't worth doing, which in turn will devolve into a basic sauna party, which then gets discarded at the last minute since at least the most generic variety has something resembling action. As can largely be expected, Pöysti ends up coming up with numerous ridiculously impractical ideas before the rest of the events play out as Neponen's friends expected:

-->'''Pöysti''': What do you mean we can't ride the tigers in the middle of the night while jousting with lightsabers?
-->'''Zoo employee''': Because they'd tear you limb from limb.
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn.

-->'''Pöysti''': Exactly HOW much it'd cost to have the RSO play {{Music/Coldplay}}'s first album in my friend's stag party?!
-->'''Conductor''': About 40000 euros, give or take.
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn, we were thinking we'd give you a bottle of scotch each.
-->'''Conductor''': It'd still cost 40000 euros.
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn.
-->'''Conductor''': Plus the scotch.
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn!

-->'''Pöysti''': Exactly why can't we do a bungee jump off a fighter plane while you [[ArtisticLicensePhysics fly through the sound barrier into a wormhole?!]]
-->'''Fighter pilot''': There's more reasons than I can care to count!
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn!

-->'''Pöysti''': What do you mean, he can't give the opening speech for the governmental year? He'd be funny as hell! Just think about it, Neponen giving the speech!
-->*a hand slams the door shut hard enough to break its windows*
-->'''Pöysti''': Damn! This is exactly the kind of thing that distances you from the common man! And that scotch is off the table!
** Meanwhile, Repomies is busy trying to overcome his fear of holding speeches, since his last attempt back in the 30s ended up in a disaster by being so lenghty and boring that it put almost every listener to sleep, with the exception of his crush who was laughing at his failure: the fact that his hands sweat so much when he's nervous that it ruins the paper he's written the speech on in minutes doesn't really help, although the part where [[UnreliableNarrator he claims he managed to flood the entire auditorium with his sweat and drown the sleeping listeners]] is probably exaggeration on his part. He almost succeeds in the end by writing a speech that's neither too boring nor too shocking that the audience also likes, but his old crush also happens to attend the wedding which causes him to briefly devolve to quoting Bible scriptures until everyone starts yawning again, at which point he starts [[TheRoast grilling Neponen]] so hard that everyone's shocked awake and stunned to silence.
* StalkerShrine: More or less the entire house of the stalker described below is filled with pictures of whoever he's currently obsessed with. He also forbids anyone else to touch any of the said pictures, claiming they're alive and has a nasty habit of creating things like a replica of Princess Diana's deathmask, a bust of Bill Cosby and a bouquet of artificial flowers...out of his own boogers, ear wax and backhair and dandruff, respectively.
* StalkerWithACrush: One episode has the Pasila policemen going after one of these named Sami Raunio, who is so delusional that he takes ''specific articles of clothing'' as signs that he and his target were meant for each other. (This is actually something like TruthInTelevision, but probably [[{{Flanderization}} Flanderized]] here.) Their method of dealing with him involves [[spoiler: letting the stalker move in with his targets and telling the targets to act as unglamorous as possible. This only proves necessary for the first target though, as Juhani dispels his illusions with a simple greeting and Kyösti himself makes him lose interest by being his own uncaring self and thus not caring about the stalker being in his home beyond the initial surprise at his presence, causing the stalker to stop stalking him because there's no challenge in it.]]
* TakeANumber: The book author Unto Vilske in one of the new episodes says this to Pöysti both when he wants to thank Unto for changing his worldview for the better with his book and when he expresses disappointment on how little he cares about his readers. Both times around it's just not a phrase: [[VisualPun he actually has a queue system set up both inside and outside of his house for both of such purposes.]]
* TemptingFate: When Repomies chastises Pöysti for accidentally telling Routalempi to shoot the dog in "Orphaned Dogs".
--> '''Repomies:''' They [The animal rights activists] will make our lives a hell when they hear about this!
--> '''Pöysti:''' Oh, nonsense. Besides, how would they ever get to hear of this? (switches on the TV)
--> '''Kontiovaara on TV:''' Good morning. Last night there was a siege situation in Jakomäki. Casualties were avoided, but unfortunately the family dog died when the police rushed in. Ah, goddammit, we here on morning TV are absolutely broken up about this.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: After witnessing what he deems to be great argument where a man and a woman argue whether it's ethical to send Finnish children to the streets Sao Paolo so they can learn to play football better and the woman asks why they can't send them to France as well to make them into great mimes and artists which the man agrees with, Kontiovaara excitedly voices his approval and follows up with "This is daytime television, bitches!".
* TortureAlwaysWorks, JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: Initially parodied, then played straight, then finally subverted: Repomies starts off with just kicking the initial suspect's shins, stating that he isn't sadistic enough to do anything worse, and when he kicks the chair out of frustration and it rebounds off a wall into the suspect, he starts apologizing profusely. After the initial suspect is found to be not guilty and the guilty suspect is brought in, Repomies attempts the shin-kicking method again and gets an address out of him, at which point Pöysti points out [[GenreSavvy that he just made up the said information just to make Repomies stop]]. When Repomies doesn't believe him, he then demonstrates by making up yet another address and [[RuleOfFunny starts beating the suspect's head in with a chair until he agrees that his address is the correct one]]. When the situation switches over to [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique Jack]] [[strike:Bauer]] [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique Jofa Interrogation Technique]], he threatens to move on to powertools and [[NoodleImplements frozen beavers]], which seems to visibly shake the suspect, but before he can spill any actual info, his lawyer barges in and anesthetizes him to the point that he's immune to all and any pain. With Jack's methods rendered useless, Pöysti accidentally talks the criminal into agreeing to spill his guts if Jack and Repomies have sex: as he says, "the government has fucked me up the ass, and now I want to see the government being fucked up the ass!". Before any sex takes place though, the criminal is disgusted enough to just spill the guts anyway...but before he does, Routalempi manages to save the day anyway.
* TheTropelessTale: Pöysti's description of what his novel is going to be like consists almost entirely of negations of both sides of just about every axis of description. Naturally, it doesn't amount to anything.
* TrashTheSet: The very first episode of the SpinOff series starts off with the Pasila police station being demolished to make way for a bar, [[spoiler:only for it to be rebuilt with a new look by the end of the episode.]]
