Added DiffLines:

** "Enter the Madkat" never establishes what is done with Madkat after he's pushed out of Ringtail's body and returned to the jack-in-the-box. The episode seems weirdly more concerned about the fate of Ringtail himself rather than the very dangerous ghost who took over his body.


Added DiffLines:

* WillingChanneler: Lenny Ringtail lets Madkat possess him in order to get vengeance David Litterbin, in exchange for using Litterbin and others as surrogates for those who once wronged the evil jester. May overlap with SymbioticPossession, as Ringtail and Madkat effectively become the same individual with no one having more control over the body than the other (or at least, which, if either, has more control is unclear).

** A pretty disturbing one is given by Morbulus while he's transforming in "The Giant Bacteria." Dr. Viper, the one mutating him, counters with a BigYes.

* BusFullOfInnocents: An entire subway train full of innocent passengers, plus the motorman, are eaten in "The Giant Bacteria." A ''literal'' bus full of innocents gets attacked by the giant mummies in "The Deadly Pyramid." Although one of the mummies crushes the bus, many (perhaps all) of the passengers (and presumably the driver) can be seen running away before this happens in a [[FreezeFrameBonus blink-and-you'll-miss it]] P.O.V. shot of Razor targeting one of the mummies.

* JustThinkOfThePotential: Really, what was Pumadyne expecting when they made a device that ''[[AppliedPhlebotinum disables all weapons]]''? To say nothing of what might have happened [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity if the Enforcers had started abusing it]].

* MegaCorp: Pumadyne Puma-Dyne are a more neutral version of this trope, they have the tech to build mechs and [[WaveMotionGun giant guns]]. Although Hackle, who used to work for them, still often finds himself at loggerheads with his former employers over the moral issues of making weapons, everyone who works for Puma-Dyne that we've seen has been perfectly nice and reasonable.



** [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Pumadyne]], anyone?

** In "Metal Urgency," Pumadyne designs an experimental tank for them called the Behemoth. It seems impressive, since it is protected by a force field and (for whatever reason) all of its armaments are said to be thought-controlled. But after being stolen by Hard Drive, it's taken on a rampage so brief it never even leaves the facility where it had just been built before the SWAT Kats manage to take it out by frying its electrical systems, which results in the thought controls becoming disabled. And apparently there is no backup conventional control for it because once Hard Drive loses the ability to operate it with his mind, the million dollar prototype promptly drives itself into a wall and crashes uselessly.

Added DiffLines:

* SecondPersonAttack: Frequently:
** A dual-punch version against Dark Kat in "Night of the Dark Kat," from T-Bone and Razor (with love!).
** Another dual punch against the Lenny Ringtail in "Enter the Madkat" after he's no longer possessed by Madkat, courtesy of two of the people who most deserve to give it to him: Razor (who he ''ate'') and Feral (who he imprisoned in a magic box).
** A fatal version done to the second Megakat Biochemical Labs guard in "Katastorphe," with the mushroom monster's tentacle reaching towards him.
** A kick in the face from Razor to Hard Drive in "SWAT Kats Unplugged."
** A punch delivered by the evil version of T-Bone to a Puma-Dyne guard in "The Dark Side of the SWAT Kats." This one is noteworthy considering Dark!T-Bone uses the hand wearing his Glovatrix, which the SpikesOfVillainy had to be removed from for this shot, or else it would've been one of the show's most violent and painful punches by implication alone.

** Then there was that scene where Callie flirtily says "Bye, Jake." right after Chance bragged (out of earshot) about her "obviously" digging him. RuleOfFunny, yes, but a tease nonetheless. Callie's [[IdenticalGrandson nigh-identical]] ancestor also had a blatant interest in Razor when the Swat Kats were sent back in time by the Pastmaster.

** Dr. Street also flirts with Ann at the beginning of "The Ci-Kat-A." It's very subtle, but the way he tells her to "drop by the space center tomorrow" suggests he fancies her a bit. His being taken over by the alien queen, though, puts paid to anything that might've come of ''that''.
** There was more of the Jake and Callie dynamic in the unfinished episode "Succubus!" They attend an orchestra performance and even call it a date. Admittedly, Callie only went because Manx was insistent she go for PR reasons, and she needed a plus-one, but the scene nevertheless would've made many Jake/Callie shippers ''very'' happy.
** Another ship tease lost when the show got cancelled was T-Bone/Felina. In "Succubus!", although what they do is fight Katrina Moorkroft's {{Mooks}} in their gargoyle forms, they still (half-jokingly) refer to it as a date, and after Jake returns from the orchestra, Chance brags about his night out with Felina fighting monsters.

* EnemyRisingBehind: Done at the beginning of "Katastrophe." The mushroom monster, in his liquid form, oozes out from under a door and rises up to take shape behind an unsuspecting Megakat Biochemical Labs guard.
