* [[DestructiveSaviour Destructive Saviours]]: It's not uncommon for the Street Sharks to cause some severe property damage whenever they save the day, such as destroying the eponymous streets by ''swimming through the solid concrete''. On the other hand, when they level buildings and such, it's usually in an effort to prevent worse disasters, like sinking a parking garage to avoid flooding the city with nuclear fallout.
* DisappearedDad: After showing up once in the pilot and being turned into a monster offscreen, the Sharks' dad is never seen again. His absence is the main concern of the heroes and finding him is usually their first priority.
** He sometimes appears in shadows, or as a 'just missed' character. He is still a major plot element.

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot: The last EIGHT episodes are taken up by a long one, introducing the Dino Vengers and the evil raptors, dinosaur-like aliens from outer space. The opening sequence was actually changed to call the show ''Dino Vengers Featuring Street Sharks''. One year later, the "Dino Vengers", heavily re-tooled and having cut all continuity with this cartoon, got their own show in the form of ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeDinosaurs''.

* AdultFear: As goofy as it was, there's the pretty freaky premise that at some point, your co-worker could turn on you, steal everything you've ever done, perform an extremely painful procedure on you, and turn the entire town against you, completely ruining your life. And when he's done with that, he'll do it to your ''kids''.

* CreepyGood: See HorrifyingHero.



* ObviouslyEvil: Dr. Paradigm. True, giant shark-men aren't exactly going to inspire confidence, but does that really mean that you should trust a man who has an eyepatch and an indeterminately European accent who goes around town in a giant, heavily armed diving suit? Of course he'd still set off villain alarms in civilian garb. Paradigm tries to subvert it by ''claiming'' that the suit's main purpose is a life-support system, after a run-in with the Street Sharks.
