Added DiffLines:

* IntercourseWithYou: In episode ''Mental Hen'', Kowalski tries to [[DistractedByTheSexy distract the titular chicken with a mating dance]]. The two are birds and this is pretty much how many birds, including penguins, attract their mating partners. As for the song itself, it features lyrics like "You know that you can't handle the Kowalski" and Kowalski's dance is general is quite suggestive, as he constantly shakes his hips and behind right in front of the chicken and finishes it off by lying down and giving her "a look". [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Don't ask how they got away with that.]]

** The titular characters also count, being small penguins capable of their cute moments that just so happen to be [[PintSizedPowerhouse able to beat some stronger and bigger animals]] and get their job done everytime. Private is the most obvious example.

** There was also an episode where Skipper told the penguins not to move a muscle in front of the camera for something (forgot what it was) and Private told Skipper he had to go to the bathroom so Skipper told him to go, so Private walks away somewhere. (Meanwhile Kowalski and Rico look slightly uncomfortable.) When Private comes back, he thanks Skipper. Then Rico spewed a newspaper and walked away and Kowalski did the same, and Skipper was getting ticked off.

* KneePushTrip: The Penguins do this to the exterminator in "Stop Bugging Me", in a technique called 'The Harder They Fall'.

** Skipper has apparently been involved in every major conflict since WorldWarTwo, and more then few minor conflicts as well. Even though that is a biological impossibility, but then again, Skipper's never been one to let a little thing like reality stand in his way. He also believes in (and may have been to) Atlantis.

* ButtMonkey: Private, and occasionally Kowalski.
** To elaborate, Private is often the receiving end of abuse from the other penguins. Kowalski, however, probably has the worst luck of the four, getting countless AmusingInjuries, {{Sanity Slippage}}s and his inventions frequently backfiring in his face.

When painful things happen, it usually starts with Kowalski, however, probably who has the worst luck of the four, getting four with countless AmusingInjuries, {{Sanity Slippage}}s and his inventions frequently backfiring in his face.



* ChainsawGood: Rico.
--> '''Private''': Oh, Rico! Chainsaw's [[YourAnswerToEverything your answer to everything]]!



** After accidently being zapped by the penguins's enhancement ray, Mort (a tiny mouse lemur) quadrupled in size and strength, capable of bringing down animals larger than himself and many times taller than his bossy, but absent-minded ring-tailed lemur leader, King Julian. Julian's advisor, Maurice, takes note of this transformation immediately.

* NightmareFuel:
** The giant, carnivorous death machine of a fish in "Snakehead!" {{Lampshaded}} in-universe by how it terrifies most of the cast, who go on and on about its various nightmare-fueling features. The penguins (minus Skipper) are also terrified by Kowalski's crudely drawn picture of the beast.
** In-Show example: In "Sting Operation", after their minds are put back, Kowalski claims that he got some of Rico's thoughts. His words: "So... horrible," while cringing. Rico merely shrugs at this.
** Though not shown, the aforementioned Brutal Nature Documentary in "All Choked Up" serves as this for... three of the penguins.
* NoFlowInCGI: Compared to the films, the lemurs aren't visibly fuzzy, instead they're textured to merely look like they are. Similarly, the penguins' feathers have a lot less sheen to them then they do in the movies. Noticeably subverted however with the leaves on King Julien's crown, which realistically sway when he moves around.

Similarly, the penguins' feathers have a lot less sheen to them then they do in the movies. Noticeably subverted however with the leaves on King Julien's crown, which still realistically sway when he moves around.

* {{Hipster}}: In "Antics on Ice", Skipper fears Private would turn into Dark Phoenix...eh, a hipster (complete with BeardOfEvil and ironic shades) if he disappoints him by cancelling the mission of going to "Lunacorns On Ice".
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: A non-fatal version occurs in "Jiggles" when the cube absorbs Kowalski right after he hugs it, because he's been handling so much fruit to feed it. Cue the MyGodWhatHaveIDone, and the immediate Lampshading by Julien.

* BambooTechnology: Considering what he has to work with, Kowalski has come up with some amazing inventions. Also played literally in "Untouchable", where Skipper reveals that one of Kowalski's ultimate inventions is a six-foot bamboo whacking pole.

* BabyCarriage: In "Cradle and All". Of course they manage to save it, but of course the baby escapes again, of course to a wrecking site, giving rise to a nod to Buster Keatons famous window-over-man scene and some (lampshaded) {{ScoobyDoobyDoors}}.
