* TheGift: Sam is shown that while he (at first) had almost no skill in roller blading, he was an obscenely good goalie.

** Another episode shows that Twister is ''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.

* 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.
