** The death of Stroker's original partner (Jermaine Washington) subverts this. He was killed in a shootout, and it was thought his gun had jammed due to not being properly cleaned. It turns out Stroker borrowed his gun clip without telling him and left him without any ammo. [spoiler: He dies for good at the end of the episode when Santa shoots him and his business partners.]

** In one episode, Stroker is attempting to sneak into a facility. He knocks out the guards outside the building, and proceeds to sneak past the security guard who watches the security monitors. The security guard asks who he is, so Stroker disguises his voice in hopes of fooling him. However, the security guard reveals he was messing with Stroker, and watched him knock out the guys on the security monitors. Stroker was apparently counting on him to be asleep on the job. The security guard responds by saying he just really likes his job.

Added DiffLines:

* SpotTheImposter: Parodied when Stroker has to choose between shooting Hoop or Hoop's lookalike criminal cousin. Stroker kneecaps one of them, which is a relief to the Hoop still standing until he also gets kneecapped. Stroker reasons they can now figure out who's who at their leisure, but an anguished Hoop says he could've just asked questions only the real one would know, which Stroker concedes might've worked. In the end, they still get it wrong, with Hoop on a chain gang and his cousin riding away in C.A.R.R. However, Stroker, Double Wide, and C.A.R.R. notice him sport an evil grin, so they head back to make really sure this time about who's who.

Added DiffLines:

* AttackItsWeakPoint: With [[ItMakesSenseInContext the giant diamond monster]], C.A.R.R. suggests Stroker and Hoop aim for the leg containing Lou Diamond Phillips (on the grounds that having "Diamond" for a middle name means he's not a true diamond). It works.


Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: In the ChristmasEpisode, Santa doesn't care much for any of the Christmas Ghosts--not because they're not white, but because he never liked the idea of three creepy ghosts in a Christmas narrative.


Added DiffLines:

* OurGhostsAreDifferent: According to the Ghost of Christmas Future, ghosts can get shot and die like any living person.


Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage: Hoop reveals in "Ninja Worrier" that he's actually always aimed up during previous shootouts in order to avoid shooting someone. As Stroker flashes back to some examples, we see the duo firing wildly while riding a roller coaster.

Added DiffLines:

* WrongGenreSavvy: The Christmas Ghosts conspired to kill Santa after he invited them to his place for dinner (something he had never done before). They thought he was getting suspicious of their lottery scam, but it was simply because Mrs. Claus thought it'd be rude to exclude them.
* YesVirginia: In the ChristmasEpisode, Stroker thought only a MallSanta had been poisoned, but it's the real deal.

Added DiffLines:

* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: One episode has a henchwoman who has the ability to hypnotize people regardless of gender by getting them to stare at her breasts. She also swirls them around, like a hypno-spiral.

* [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect the Narrator]]: The narrator for the Christmas episode, who amusingly turns out to be a turkey about to be taken to the slaughter.
-->'''Narrator''': And that, my friends, is the story of how Stroker saved Christmas. Now, it took old Stroker a few years to get over losing the lottery, and then figure out this was a happy ending. But that's the funny thing about happy endings. They're not about getting richer. They're about growing older, and getting to share another year with the ones you love. ''(A man approaches and grabs the poor turkey around the neck)'' Wait! What the hell? No! No, I want to live! Dear God! Please, don't kill me! ''(He is dragged offscreen and utters a BigNo before being killed)''
** DeadStarWalking: And he was voiced by a moderately famous character actor (Eli Wallach, no less!)

The characters all had a good dose of GenreSavvy, though they often failed anyway, and many a {{Lampshade}} was hung on various tropes. As far as trope use in parodies goes, this show is a great example.

* GenreSavvy: One explicit example is when the pair are solving a mystery in TheDeepSouth.
--> "In these situations it's always either the corrupt mayor, a random hillbilly, or the corrupt sheriff."
** It was in fact [[spoiler: the corrupt sheriff.]]
** And done again at the end of the episode [[spoiler: as the sheriff was an identical cousin of Hoop and they wound up arresting the wrong guy. But as Stroker, Double Wide and the Sheriff are leaving, the former two notice the sheriff rubbing his hands evilly. They question this before u-turning back to the police compound to be on the safe side]].
