* AlienSky: In most episodes, the sky during the daytime is green. It's also been yellow several times, red at least twice, and is more purple than black at night. One of the only times it was ever actually blue was in "Chaos in Crystal", because Shard was green and would've likely blended into the usual green sky too much.

* DirtyCoward: Lt. Steel. At [[IncrediblyLamePun litterally]] EVERY chance, he tries to take over his boss Feral's job.

* DirtyCoward: Lt. Steel. At [[IncrediblyLamePun litterally]] EVERY chance, Steel, especially in "The Wrath of Dark Kat". Despite making it plain he tries wants to take over be commander of the Enforcers and even betraying Feral to get it, when actually put in the thick of the action, he chickens out and hides. He won't even save his boss Feral's job.''own'' hide by shooting back!
** Then there's Manx, who often lacks even ''moral'' courage, as he is quick to try and offer deals to the villains if it'll spare him/make his life easier. And somewhat more nefariously, in "The Giant Bacteria", when he and Callie are being chased, he shoves her off of a rescue ladder so he can climb up ahead of her.
** Randall the photographer in "The Deadly Pyramid" isn't just TooDumbToLive, rushing headlong into the pyramid to try and get a picture of the Pastmaster, but when chased out by the giant mummies, he steals the only Jeep and drives off, abandoning Dr. Sinian and her assistant Henson.

** Callie also does this during her ActionGirl AwesomeMoments. In "The Wrath of Dark Kat", she saves the SWAT Kats by hitting the titular villain with one of the money bags he'd stolen. In "The Ci-Kat-A", when alien-possessed scientist Dr. Harley Street is trying to "recruit" her, Callie says "I don't think so!" and smashes him on the head with her briefcase.

* OurGargoylesRock: The Pastmaster brings a gargoyle on Old Megakat Bridge to life briefly in "A Bright and Shiny Future." It's basically just a horned, demon-like head with MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily at the end of an extending neck.
** In the unfinished episode "Succubus!", Katrina Moorkroft's three servants turn into what the script describes as gargoyles. They abduct victims for their employer and can shoot [[EyeBeams lasers]] out of their eyes.



** 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 UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden 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.

* PutOnABus: Lt. Commander Steele. Apparently, Steele's ineptitude eventually got him replaced by Feral's more competent and able-bodied niece Felina, and he has not been seen since.

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: In "The Wrath of Dark Kat", Steele insists his name is spelled with two E's, implying it is "Steel." However when we see his nameplate on his desk in "Enter the Madkat", it's spelled "Steele." Most fans take the latter spelling as the correct one, despite Steele's apparent preference. [[WildMassGuessing Possibly the nameplate is a misprint the Enforcers didn't bother to correct]]?

** 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 in the right about the SWAT Kats screwing up this time around. The SWAT Kats get furious and throw a tantrum (with Chance even breaking their television) as well as blaming Feral for Morbulus getting away (though not to his face) and even Callie is uncharacteristically [[IncrediblyLamePun catty]] and tries pinning the blame on Feral for the whole thing, plus their letting Morbulus escape ends up with [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Dr. Viper transforming Morbulus into a bacteria monster that kills many innocent civilians]]. What makes it all even harsher is that it is only the second episode of the first season (and the first episode made), 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, so this might be chalked up to EarlyInstallmentWeirdness.

* BadassBystander: The manager of the Megakat Mint in "Unlikely Alloys." He is faced with two armed, murderous gangster-bots... and he tries to use himself as a shield to prevent them from getting into the vault. He may be TooDumbToLive, but the bravery of fools is still bravery, and he probably saved the life of the guy Mac picked up, because in turning to deal with the manager, Mac puts the other guy down and forgets about his original victim.
