** For nearly the entire series, Teddy is portrayed as patient, soft-spoken and calm. When his friends turn against him, however, Teddy is able to take on an entire room of bad guys alone and win, as seen in "M.A.V.O. Costume Ball". This could also double as Teddy's personal {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Quite a bit, actually, but the earliest example this troper recalls occurs in the fourth episode of the series. The gang are wandering around the Hard To Find City, when someone wonders who would build such a magnificent place. The camera pans away to show off [[spoiler: a building done in the shape of a bear's head]].
** Similarly, the ancient book in King Nogbert's library and [[spoiler: and the aqueduct beneath the castle both]] bear a silhouette of their creators.

* HeelFaceDoorSlam: Quite the Tearjerker too. A B-plot for one story arc involves Tweeg, who has spent most of his life under the heel of his abusive mother, meeting his estranged father Elroy who treats him rather decently. Despite himself, Tweeg finds himself coming to enjoy Elroy's surfer lifestyle, and the two even get a nice bonding montage while collecting seashells. It seems Tweeg will be exiting the series with a happy ending, until its revealed Elroy is sitting on a bucket full of gold. Falling back into old habits, Tweeg steals his father's gold and tries to leave, tearfully returning because he doesn't want Elroy's memories of his son tainted by thinking of him as a thief. Elroy doesn't really care about the gold and is all set to forgive his son, but Tweeg points out he's a villain to the core and won't be able to resist the gold's temptation. The two part company with Tweeg returning to his villainous life.

* ThePowerOfFriendship: While it's played straight with the main cast for the vast majority of the series, it notably gets averted once. When M.A.V.O. succeeds in collecting all the crystals, the dark sides of all of Teddy's friends' personalities are brought to the fore, causing them to abandon him when he needs them most. This results in Teddy having to go on a mission alone (and also leads to a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for him as well).

* ChehkovsGun: The crystal seen in Quellor's black box. [[spoiler: It is actually the eighth crystal, and holds the memories of the Hermit of Leaky Lake.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Magitek}}: Apparently the ultimate ability of the Precursor Civilization of Grundo, powered by the crystals they left behind. Of course, since there are only [[spoiler:8]] crystals total, one has to wonder what they did if they needed the same one in two different locations.

* TheBarnum: Two of them. The Wizard of Grundo and the Sorceror of Ying, brothers, are both showman to the core who play to the crowd for their living. Comes to a head when the Wizard sets up a theme park next door to the Ying Zoo and the two come into direct competition.



* BewareTheSillyOnes: Despite his status as an IneffectualSympatheticVillain, Tweeg has twice nearly managed to start a war; once between the formerly friendly Elves and Woodsprites, and again between M.A.V.O. and the Gutangs. His actions were only stopped at the last minute both times.



* CollectorOfTheStrange: The Sorceror of Ying by necessity. He runs a zoo and the rarer and odder his attractions, the more money he makes. Teddy and Grubby inadvertently get on his radar while wearing disguises because he he's never heard of the monsters they're pretending to be. And apparently he charges his sapient exhibits room and board.



* DickDastardlyStopsToCheat: After crossing a bridge during a race, he stopped to destroy it and even waited to see how the Wooly What's It would cross it. And he wasn't even on the lead.
* DisappearedDad: Teddy's missing father. Later it's revealed that the reason he hasn't returned is that [[spoiler:Quellor erased his memory. Once his memory is restored, he returns to his family]]. Tweeg's father is this as well.

Added DiffLines:

* AbhorrentAdmirer: Eleanor Tweeg is this to both her estranged husband and Ickly, whom she quite fancies. It says much that one went into hiding rather than deal with her.


Added DiffLines:

* BotheringByTheBook: Part of Bognostriclum's character. He knows and can recite every M.A.V.O. rule and regulation from memory, and does his best to enforce them on everybody... And we do mean everybody. Quellor has come close to throttling the man twice for such actions.


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnfavorite: Highlights how sucky Tweeg's life is this to his mother despite being an only child.


Added DiffLines:

** Tweeg and L.B. are a villainous version.

** L.B. is also this to the gang of bounders he runs as well, even going so far as to use his wedding present to give them the backpay they're owed from Tweeg when he could have easily kept it.
