** In "The Giant Bacteria", the SWAT Kats manage to defeat and capture a villain named Morbulus. Instead of holding him until the authorities got there or even going over to said authorities to hand Morbulus over, they decide to just mess around and just drop the villain in the water. Of course, Morbulus takes advantage of this and escapes into a very nearby sewer duct before the enforcers get there. The Swat Kats never get called out on it by anybody other than Feral, who is actually right about the SWAT Kats screwing up this time around. Not only do the SWAT Kats get pissed and act like whiny children by blaming Feral for Morbulus getting away, but to make it worse, even Callie acts like a bitch and tries pinning the blame on Feral for the whole thing.
*** What makes it even harsher is that it is only the second episode of the series, so it leaves a bad impression on the heroes (as well as Callie) very early in the series. Thankfully, nothing of that level happens afterwards in the series.

** 2). Its leadership is becoming overconfident - T-Bone and Razor were Enforcers until Feral pulled an absolutely ''stupid'' OnlyICanKillHim on Dark Kat (imagine two nobodies nearly catching bin Laden when some big shot was around) and blamed them for the ensuing property damage. Feral got a bit better, and by the time of the show proper is more professional. But Lt. Commander Steele is an extrapolation of this that nearly screws the entire city.

* DubNameChange: The Hindi dub of the show, for Indian audiences, had some hilarious name changes. Chance and Jake became Bholu and Billu (child-like, innocent nicknames), while T-Bone and Razor became Bade Meow (Big Meow) and Chote Meow (Small Meow) respectively, a play on a Film/BadBoys inspired Bollywood film called Bade Miyan Chote Mian. The Pastmaster was called something that meant King of Demons.

* EasyLogistics: Unless the Swat Kats' base was a pre-built base lying forgotten under the junkyard (and given the world they live in, that might not be a bad guess), that is an ''astounding'' amount of work for only ''two people'' using what equipment they can salvage in the junkyard. Even if it's a military-grade junkyard with lots of good stuff, that still means they have to build and keep maintaining their equipment from scratch. Only RuleOfCool can possibly justify how two people do it themselves and still manage to have free time to work, sleep, eat, chill out, train, and go on missions.

* WeaponizedCar: Jake and Chance convert one of their tow-trucks into the heavily-armed Thunder Truck in "When Strikes Mutilor". In a sense, the [=HoverKat=] could count although it's a hovercraft; same with the Metallikat Express.

Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Usually, very, very averted, but it shows up from time to time, such as the petty gangster who survives being directly above a bomb in "The Metallikats" and seems only lightly injured for it.
