* ArcWelding: The Web creatures' appearance in ''Nullzilla'' marked the very first multi-episode story arc of ''[=ReBoot=]'', and it lead directly into the following four episodes and, by extension, all of season three, but it was originally a random event within the story and isolated from other plotlines. However, in ''The Episode With No Name'' of season three it is revealed that Daemon, a supervirus that would become the BigBad of season four, deliberately sent the Web creature to Mainframe as part of her EvilPlan to infect the entire Net.

* GoneHorriblyRight: how Bob gets Hexadecimal to reverse the Medusa virus. by pointing out how still, quiet, peaceful, and worst of all Predictable Mainframe has become with everyone frozen in place.

** Enzo frequently exclaims "Alphanumeric!" when pleased by something.

** Enzo frequently exclaims "Alphanumeric!" when pleased by something. As he gets older and becomes Matrix, he only says it ''once'', out of bitter, sardonic humor... only for a boy within earshot to pick up on it.

** And it quickly went FromBadToWorse (boy, did this show get dark in a hurry). Enzo stepped up to the plate to defend the city, and four episodes into his run as guardian, he loses a game, and he (along with Andraia and Frisket) has to leave with it in order to avoid being nullified. The next time we see him, he's grown into a renegade, gun-toting AntiHero, and the next time we see Mainframe, it's a veritable wasteland. And when he encounters Megabyte, he gives him a literal one of these in one of the most awesome moments in the show.

* MagicAIsMagicA: The general mechanics of how this universe works is well defined. The Net is the universe, containing everything and everyone in existence, and each system is a self-contained "planet." The web is an EldritchLocation; contained within the universe but not touching any inhabited planet and filled with [[EldritchAbomination beings that do not conform to natural law as it applies within the rest of the Net]]. The only flimsy issues are related to portals; at some points in the series they are simply the direct equivalent of internet connections, linking two distant systems that are connected through the Net, but at other points they seem to be almost magical within the series, linking systems that do not have any sort of Net-connection and bypassng any sort of firewall or other defenses set up between the two systems.

* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: The episode "When Games Collide" does ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, involving a war game merging with a dinosaur-hunting one, with the result that Megabyte and Bob are attacked by a T-Rex with a tank turret on its head.

He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzSNrwNpw0g taunts Matrix into throwing his gun away and fighting with his fists]], which he does, and while he's shaking his head at how stupid Matrix was for taking the bait, the "boy" knocks the [[SuperStrength obscenely powerful villain]] across the room.

** In "Daemon Rising," the game witnessed seems to be AustinPowers without even the bother of changing the superficial details. Matrix reboots into Dr. Evil, Enzo reboots into Mini Me and Frisket reboots into Mr. Bigglesworth. Austin himself appears as the User, saying the word "Karma" instead of "mojo," and Matrix kills his enemy with one shot from ''the'' [[Film/TheManWithTheGoldenGun golden]] ScaramangaSpecial.

* AntiHeroSubstitute: Deconstructed. Enzo grows from a whiny, naive young sprite into the big, tough {{badass}} Matrix, but everybody keeps telling him how being a big, tough badass does not compensate for being an arrogant, pompous jerk, and his hotheaded actions put [=AndrAIa=], the love of his life, in mortal danger. A recurring theme of season three is the fact that, for all his efforts to reunite with his family and Mainframe, they would be disgusted and repulsed by what he has become.

* {{Badass}}: Matrix, who explicitly refers to himself, and is referred to by others, as a being of unstoppable brute force. Frisket is a badass dog that ''nobody'' wants to mess with.



* BigDamnHeroes: Right when the Web Riders are about to slaughter everyone on the Saucy Mare (Yes, even [[{{Badass}} Matrix]]) Bob shows up and orders the Web Riders to stop. Having previously gained the Web Riders' trust and friendship, it works.

* KidHeroAllGrownUp: Partway into season three, when Enzo enters a game he can't win, he, [=AndrAIa=], and Frisket change their icons to game sprite mode and rode the game out of Mainframe. The game's accelerated time causes a time skip, bringing them to adulthood. The following episodes focus on them, Enzo, now going by Matrix, is a muscular {{Badass}}, and [=AndrAIa=], now an ActionGirl, searching for Mainframe.
