* MarriedToTheJob: Sam's father, while a ReasonableAuthorityFigure compared to Sam's mother, shows it in one episode where he visits and treats the kids to various fun activities, but is always on his phone making business calls instead of spending time with Sam and his friends. He eventually realizes how bad he is as a father and offers to take Sam out for some quality time the next day, ignoring his cellphone the next time it rings.

* GoofySuit: In "A Shot in the Park," the gang is visiting a Ride/SeaWorld -esque AmusementPark to shoot footage of marine life for a school project. The park has a goofy seal mascot that likes to sing the park's jingle, high-five kids, and bark like a real seal. Underneath the seal costume, he is a teenage guy covered in zits, but he seems to enjoy his job. He also initially suspects Twister may be trouble when he initially refuses to give him five, and gets in a word after the kids get in trouble.

* BigShadowLittleCreature: Seen in "The Night Before," when Otto, Sam, Twister and Eddie are about to "whomp" a house on Mischief Night, the owner of the house can be heard sending out his dog "Crusher" to get them, and the boys see a rather threatening shadow of the dog in the light from the open door, and run for it. Once they climb up a tree, the dog catches up, and we see it's actually something like a chihuahua.

* TotallyRadical: Oh Lord, where to begin...
** At least after a few seasons they stopped cutting away to a tie-dye screen with squiggly words repeating the '90s slang they shout. That is they stopped doing it as much.

match their sport-loving personality. After a few seasons they stopped cutting away to a tie-dye screen with squiggly words repeating the '90s slang they shout. That is they stopped doing it as much.



* YouFailPhysicsForever: Invoked. The one episode where Otto thought he could spin his skateboard in the air and go back to his original spot, as if he could do it ''[[TooDumbToLive in reverse]].'' It only gets worse when a ball [[ContrivedCoincidence gets launched into the air by a lawn mower at the right time]], which hits his board and actually ''causes'' this to happen -- causing him to assume it will happen again. And discussed by Sam who mentions it's physically impossible to have done so.
** Not to mention, plenty of the tricks are impossible to do in real life. However, since it's an animated show, [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality it'd be boring if they stuck to real life physics.]]
** Perpetual Motion Device, 'nuff said.
