* ActuallyPrettyFunny: The Aesop of the Stylist episode. After Crandall's mom talks about how styles change, providing a photo of when she was young, Teamo is able to look at their bad haircuts and laugh at them. This gives them the strength to face the Sylist and her taunts for giving everyone a TraumaticHaircut.

* CoolBigSis: Jean to Crandall. She often provides useful information and advice to the team for their situations, serves as a SecretKeeper, and has huge career plans.



** The fact that in Tiffany Javelins's episode her manager is starting a campaign to encourage Tiffany's fans to BareYourMidriff and pierce their belly buttons. Also note that a good portion of her fans are preteens, including Brenda, though the Chief's daughter and Paulsen's work partner also get swept away.

Added DiffLines:

* HowDoIShotWeb: When Teamo's weapons get upgraded from simple toys to serious gadgets, they have a tough time adjusting to them in the fight with Technor. They have to take the time to practice with them while Technor steals power from everywhere.


Added DiffLines:

* MisplacedRetribution: Mauricio was the only one who insulted Coco Caliente for her bad haircut, while the audience laughed. So obviously she must take revenge on the entire city and give them one TraumaticHaircut after another.

* BavarianFireDrill: The Birthday Bandit in his first episode appears as a clown at a party. He then ties up the birthday boy and his parents on the pretext of doing a trick, and has his minions steal the presents.

** Do not destroy any sector if Paulson is in the vicinity. Compared to that, he doesn't show any anger when Skate Lad confesses to breaking his specialized board.
** Skate Lad will burst out in ranting Spanish if you belittle Mexican culture.

* BrokenPedestal:
** Most of Tiffany's fans when Paulson creates an EngineeredPublicConfession that reveals Tiffany is just letting her manager boss her around and tell her what to think.
** Crandall thinks much less of Dr. Droid after the latter replaces everyone in the city with robot duplicates, including his mother and sister.



* CallBack:
** At the beginning of the series Paulson updated the kids' weapons from simple toys so that they could handle tougher villains like Technor. When his janitor goes on a mad spree with gloves that affect objects with metal, Paulson downgrades the weapons into wood, plastic and rope so that they can defeat The Gauntlet.
** Tiffany Javelins in her first appearance made Brenda forget her hero duties. In her next appearance, where [[spoiler:Dr. Droid and the manager have replaced her with a robot]], Brenda again gets lured towards stardom.



* CartesianKarma: Despite being under her manager's influence and contractual thumb, Tiffany in her first appearance gets arrested for the crimes she committed. [[spoiler:By her second episode, she's wised up to not get involved in any more criminal behavior, leading to her manager locking her up]].

* ChekhovsGun:
** In the Cinco de Mayo episode, Hector reveals that despite Le Poodle disarming Teamo that he still has his skateboard screwdriver. He uses it to undo the bolts of their cage.
** Brenda while [[spoiler:rehearsing with "Tiffany" for a song realizes that singing high notes shorts the latter out; it takes her much longer to realize that Tiffany is a robot. Rope Girl then exploits this to defeat the army of Tiffany bots at the end]].



%%* CompressedVice: Brenda's slovenliness.
* ContinuityNod: While up in the attic in one episode, Crandall finds what appears to be an old costume of his with a "C" emblem on it. A few episodes later, we see that "C" emblem again on a microchip of the Cloaked Skull's mask, with Crandall remarking that it looks familiar to him somehow.

* CurbStompBattle: Technor in his first appearance defeats Teamo without breaking a sweat because they're still using an ordinary yo-yo, jumprope, and skateboard. Governor Kevin and Paulson anticipate this, so they immediately upgrade the team's weapons.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In the banned Valentine's Day episode, the [[strike:Birthday]] Valentine Bandit kidnaps Governor Kevin's girlfriend; he responds to this development by saying "That fiend stole my heart!" ([[HoYay Taking this line in the wrong context]] might be the reason the episode was banned.)
* GratuitousSpanish: In "The Big Put Down", Skate Lad refers to the Put Down Artist as "poco loco en el coco" (which, as Brenda explains, means "a little crazy in the coconut"). It ends up being helpful later on. The {{Catch Phrase}}s of the respective team members also bring Spanish to mind, though they're gibberish for the most part.

* KickTheDog:
** The Put Down Artist exists to make everyone else feel bad. Teamo explicitly mentions that they can't BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame because they don't know how to stoop to that level. Eventually their retorts are more general like "poco loco en el coco" and reciting jokes that Mauricio wrote for them.
** Mauricio went too far by mocking Coco Caliente for her bad haircut on live television, when it wasn't her fault. In revenge she becomes The Stylist and vows to give ''everyone,'' including him, a TraumaticHaircut.

* MassOhCrap: The heroes that would have auditioned to protect the city in the pilot run out of the governor's mansion screaming when Crandall screams "Baron Blitz is here and he's got a giant robot!"



* MeaningfulName: It may not be a good idea to insult someone whose last name is "Caliente," the Spanish word for "[[HotBlooded hot]]". Coco Caliente takes offense when Mauricio makes fun of her bad haircut on live television.

* OhCrap:
** Brenda and Hector at first when Crandall tells them they're auditioning as heroes in front of the governor.
** Mauricio in the Stylist episode when she hijacks his show and gives him a TraumaticHaircut. His reason? He caused her StartOfDarkness by making fun of the one time she came on the show with a terrible hairdo.
** One astronomer when Mirror Star steals the lenses from his telescopes.



%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The Governor

to:

%%* * ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The GovernorGovernor at first is understandably nervous about three kids deciding to stop Baron von Blitz. When he sees them in action, however, and especially after they capture the Baron in the pilot, he makes them deputized heroes. He also prepares for when their ordinary belt, rope and skateboard will fail in battle and gives them upgrades courtesy of Paulson.

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman:

** Also, the Chief has to coach Teamo when Baron von Blitz possess bronze statues from the Football Hall of Fame and Teamo's usual techniques don't work well on the field.



* TraumaticHaircut: The Stylist delivers this to anyone who encounters her, including Teamo, thanks to a haircutting robot. She reveals her evil plan is to publicly humiliate her victims by putting them on live TV for the world to see. Eventually Skate Lad defeats it by trapping it under a hair dryer.

to:

* WeCanRuleTogether: WalkOnTheWildSideEpisode: Brenda twice, in both of the episodes with Tiffany Javelins. By emulating Tiffany, who is ordered by her manager to be a "bad girl," Brenda skips school, pierces her belly button, steals chocolate milk, and uses her rope against Hector and Crandall. In the second episode [[spoiler:she signs a contract to become a star like Tiffany, only to go back on it.]]

** Rope Girl gets suckered into entering a music contract with Tiffany Javelins in the latter's episode because the manager plays on her wanting to be a Star. [[spoiler:Brenda rips up her contract when she learns that the Tiffany she performed with was a robot and she abandoned her friends when they needed her help.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: In his first appearance Dr. Droid wants to make the world a better place by replacing "imperfect, unpredictable" humans with robot duplicates. Unfortunately, because ''he'' is an imperfect human, the robots turn on him to make the world better. Before their knockout gas affects him, he manages to tell Captain Crandall how to wake everyone up from their drugged sleep.


Added DiffLines:

* WouldHurtAChild: Madam Snake definitely would, as shown when her henchmen sprain Skate Lad's leg and give Rope Girl a lot of splinters in one episode.
* WouldntHurtAChild: For what little it's worth, most of the villains in the show fall under this. Le Poodle incapacites them in the Cinco de Mayo episode, for example, but just locks them up to be sent away and confiscates their weapons.


Added DiffLines:

* ZergRush: Le Poodle's henchmen overwhelm Teamo Supremo in this fashion during the Cinco de Mayo episode. They surround Rope Girl so she can't catch them all, get into tug-of-war over Skate Lad's board, and pickpocket Captain Crandall's utility belt.
