** Lance is [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Rattrap]].
** Penny is a more adult-sounding [[GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Tachikoma]].

''{{Rollbots}}'' is a CanadianSeries set [[InAWorld In a]] WorldInTheSky called Flip City. In it lives a population of TransformingMecha who get around by turning into spheres and rolling (Roll-bots, get it?). The series follows rookie Flip City Police recruit Spin as he and the rest of the [=FCPD=] protect the citizenry from Vertex's team of rogue bots.

* BarrierWarrior: This is Lance's ability, but he's not good at it.
* ButtMonkey: Lance.
* CassandraTruth: Spin can't convince Captain Pounder that Vertex is a SpiderTank.
* ChestInsignia: The various tribe insignias, though they are usually on an arm on leg. Spin doesn't have one, as he doesn't have a tribe that he knows of.
* CrossdressingVoices: Tabitha St. Germain plays [[TagalongKid Tinny]].
* DaChief: Captain Pounder.
* DumbMuscle: Macro.
* EyepatchOfPower: Pounder. Odd, since [[FridgeLogic he's a robot]].

* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Vertex
** TheDragon, EvilGenius: Manx
** TheBrute: Macro

** TheHero: Spin
** TheLancer: Tinny
** TheChick: Lance[[hottip:*:Not female, but very feminine.]]
** TheBigGuy: Pounder
** TheSmartGuy: Penny
* GratuitousJapanese: The tribes' names are derived from [[MeaningfulName relevant]] Japanese words, often modified with XtremeKoolLetterz. Some examples include (note: "<" means "derived from"):
** Kei'zatsu (police) < keisatsu ("police")
** Kuzuri (medics) < kusuri ("medicine")
** Tensai (scientists) < tensai ("genius")
** Zobo'shi (firefighters) < shouboushi ("firefighter")
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Botch likes to do this with his GrapplingHookPistol hand.
* GroundhogDayLoop: "Crontab Trouble".
* HeyItsThatVoice: Expect a lot of this, especially if you've seen ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'':
** Spin is [[EdEddNEddy Double D]], though he doesn't sound like it.
** Pounder is [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Optimus Primal]].
** Lance is [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars Rattrap]].
** Penny is a more adult-sounding [[GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Tachikoma]].

* FantasticCasteSystem: Kei'zatsu are police, Tensai are scientists, Kuzuri are medics, and so on.
* HealingHands: Penny.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Spin is red and the fastest bot in Flip City.
* LawfulStupid: "The Do-Right Module" has the team forced to behave this way, or [[ElectricTorture they get shocked]].
* MeaningfulName: Spin spins, Tinny is a tiny tin (as [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Lance), Pounder pounds things, Cable (presumably) comtains cables, Vertex is angular, Macro is big, and Botch screws everything up.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: "Scorched" has several characters get stuck between robot and sphere modes, rendering them pretty helpless.
* ShoutOut: Pounder gives the command "[[{{Transformers}} Roll out!]]" at least once.
* SpiderTank: Vertex.
* TheBigGuy: Pounder is the biggest of the Kei'zatsu.
* TransformingMecha: Everyone.
* WorldInTheSky: Flip City.
