* ThrowTheDogABone: [spoiler:Though it isn't elaborated on beyond the one scene, when Ky uses the Prism Kairu to counteract and cure the encroaching Shadow Kairu in the series finale, when the negative effects are shown reversing, a scene is spared showing Nan and Berkby being freed from their crystal prison. Since the show ends not long after, this is about as happy an ending for Team Imperiaz as they are gonna get, even if they don't know it yet.]]

One trope per bullet; deleting potholes; can't spoil tag tropes;

It's part of what motivates him to find a cure[[spoiler:, even if it means chasing an allusive and dangerous legend pertaining to Prism Kairu on his own, which he does as season 2 winds down. Thankfully, though, Ekayon sneaks and tags along; Ky wouldn't have been successful without him.]] * [[KillItWithFire Kill It With Plasma]]: Metanoid's abilities are plasma-based: Plasma hands, plasma sword, etc.

** EvilCostumeSwitch: Team Radicor in season 2, though they were always 'evil'. Not much changes really: Zair gains a red jacket, Zane gains a new cloak from Lokar's tattered robe, with Techris being the most obvious in a new "jumpsuit" with a new haircut.

* MinimalistCast: Although the cast isn't small per se, there is a noticeable 'limitation', if you will, of characters in this show, with Team Stax seemingly the only good guys collecting Kairu until Ekayon comes along over halfway into the first season. Even then, he almost never shows up. There are more Redakai Masters other then Master Boaddai, so presumably, there are more good guy teams out there, yet we never see them and Lokar's E-Teens always end up targeting Team Stax. Due to the Kairu deposits often being in the wilderness, we see few characters of the day and even fewer recurring characters other than the E-Teens, making the character pool seem shallow compared to other shows of this type. Even season 2 doesn't do much to change it despite the new characters, Master Boaddai gaining new trainees, and Team Hiverax replacing Team Badicor. In fact it makes things worse by recycling a good deal of season one's characters of the day. At least the whole "We might see them again." bit isn't a lie here.

* PutOnABus: Team Badicor after their defeat in season 1's finale, are banished away by Lokar and are never seen and, bar a quick mention later in season 2 by Koz worrying of sharing a similar fate, never heard from again. Though since they weren't actually destroyed [[spoiler:like the Hiverax were]], they could always appear again, in theory. * ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: The Redakai Masters, though made most obvious with Master Boaddai, especially after he loses his Paladium monster halfway into season 2 and starts acting more and more his age [[spoiler:until he gets it back in the last episode]]. Their precise ages are left vague, but they are definitely OlderThanTheyLook.

Their precise ages are left vague, but they are definitely OlderThanTheyLook.

* StrictlyFormula: Up until about when Ekayon first showed up, two-thirds into season 1, the episodes had a pretty standard formula: Master Boaddai would sense the location of a Kairu deposit and send Team Stax to collect it. They would arrive at the general location and try to pin-point the exact whereabouts with their X-Readers and Maya's ability to sense Kairu. Along the way, the [[VillainOfTheWeek E-Teens of the day]], who happened to be looking for the exact same Kairu deposit Team Stax were, would intercept them (or vise-versa). A Kairu challenge would happen (with powers and no monsters) and Team Stax would usually (but not always) drive them off temporarily. They'd continue searching for and eventually find the Kairu deposit, only to come by the same E-Teens again. ''Another'' Kairu challenge (with monsters this time), with Team Stax usually coming out on top. They collect the Kairu, get new X-Drives they may or may not use, and go home feeling better about themselves, with a possible scene of Lokar reprimanding the failed E-Teens (additional obstacles when looking for the Kairu are optional). Once Ekayon first appears and onward however, the formula gets shaken up bit by bit. Early season 2, for example, has Team Stax not win as many decisive victories, even losing the Kairu to the Hiverax and failing to beat Team Radicor the second time around.

They would arrive all be 15 at the general show's start (Maya comments that one year has past when they revisit an old location and try to pin-point the exact whereabouts with their X-Readers and Maya's ability to sense Kairu.

Ekayon was 12 when he was taken in by Master Atoch and could be speculated to be the same age as Team Stax if not a year older. Team Tiro look to be the same age as Ekayon did and Ky did their respective flashbacks, so 12 could be guessed for them. ** The biggest examples would be the Redakai and King Kieran. The former are all older gentlemen that are much older than they look (some are beginning to gray, some aren't), whereas Kieran is a King and sole resident of a seemingly abandoned castle who doesn't really look like he'd even be in his twenties yet. And he has a mutual crush on 15 year-old Maya to boot.

* YankTheDogsChain: Team Imperiaz in regards to rescuing their parents. All of season 1, Lokar was blackmailing them to find him Kairu with no inclination that he would ''ever'' free their parents. Then comes season 2 with Lokar seemingly out of the picture: they ''finally'' find their parents only to run afoul of Zane who takes up Lokar's blackmail to coerce services to himself. They then enlist Team Stax for help in taking down the Radicor, with some reluctance on Boomer and Maya's part, only to have that blow over, forcing them to double cross Team Stax (for the second time in the series). Even when the two E-Teen groups drive off Team Stax, [[KickTheDog Zane reveals he has no intention of releasing Nan and Berkby]] ''[[KickTheDog ever]]'', and continues using them as leverage. It's unfortunate; if only the Imperiaz had the courage to stand up to Team Radicor's threats alongside Team Stax... [[spoiler:[[ThrowTheDogABone Though the finale does spare a short scene for them]].]]
