* ActuallyPrettyFunny: In "Super Squid", the characters eventually come to laugh at it. Tito thought it was pretty funny from the start (Aside from the bit with the coconut in the dark.)

* TheGift: Sam is shown that while he (at first) had almost no skill in roller blading, he was an obscenely good goalie.
** Surprisingly he gets a lot better at any of the sports done as the show progresses.
** Another episode shows that Twister is ''really'' good at making sandcastles.
** Twister is a CloudCuckooLander and BookDumb; but he's also ''really'' good at cameras. Not to mention, "Follow the Leader" shows him to be a rather effective coach for Roller Hockey. He [[BrilliantButLazy just doesn't want to handle the pressure]].

** Another episode shows that Twister is a natural when it comes to the artistic side of things, which is why he handles camera work and skateboarding videos. In one episode he turns out to be ''really'' good at making sandcastles.

* NeverBareheaded: While Twister has been shown without his kango hat several times, his brother Lars is never seen without his trademark gray beanie, and when he's not wearing it, he has his head covered with a helmet. Lars has only been shown in literally one episode with his head exposed, which is "Bruised Man's Curve". Outside of that episode, Lars never removes his beanie.

** Also shows up in "Race Across New Zealand" where another competitor is encouraged to cheat by his dad but eventually has his conscience catch up with him and reveals how he cheated... which turns out to be how ''his father'' cheated against Raymundo when the 2 were kids. Both wins are reversed and awarded to the proper winners (Raymundo and Reggie).

* CallingTheOldManOut: In "Race Across New Zealand", Ray spends most of the movie [[ParentalFavoritism blatantly favoring Otto over Reggie]] due to an incident where the father of another competitor beat him in the same competition when he was Otto's age. Reggie finally gets fed up with this line of thinking and ''rips her dad apart'', claiming that he doesn't care about her at all and just cares that Otto looks good. [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Since she and Raymundo normally have a good relationship and Ray treats both kids fairly, this is pretty sobering.]]

* DaydreamSurprise: In "Twister's Cuz," Sam is nervous about the new "Sky Torpedo" thrill ride at the Ocean Shores amusement park. A while after the characters arrive at the park, Sam is shown hesitating to get in a mini-rocket vehicle, but Otto and Reggie keep pushing him to do it, and the demented ride operator locks him into the car, laughs at him, and starts the ride. Sam buckles up, and then the ride elevates the carousel far over the ocean and begins spinning the vehicles faster and faster. It then tilts to the side as it goes even faster, and then the screw nut holding Sam's vehicle in place pops out and sends his vehicle flying, to which it leaves a path of destruction as it careens through the park, flinging Sam to his impending doom. Otto then starts crying out Sam's name, only for it to ripple back to reality as Otto snaps Sam out of his fantasy.
