* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Judging by the boys' recollections and Brock's flashbacks, a good chunk of the family's adventures.

** Billy Quizboy. Most of the characters are on the receiving end of tons of abuse, but Billy is roundly dismissed as a loser even among his fellow losers. However, [[BewareTheNiceOnes don't push him too far]]. He's [[GroinAttack groin punched]] [[BadAss Brock Samson]] and lived, not to mention he apparently managed to shake off the effect of O.S.I. brainwashing technology as well as being shown to be a brilliant amateur surgeon.

** In the season three two-part finale, "The Family that Slays Together...," there is a final epic battle between [[spoiler: an O.S.I. army, an army of Monarch henchmen, and an army of naked Hank and Dean clones led by Sgt. Hatred. Most of those involved don't see this as anything particularly unusual, but it proves to be the straw that breaks the camel's back for OnlySaneMan/[[{{Badass}} Badass Bodyguard]] Brock Sampson. He mentions some of the weird things he's seen over his years as the Venture family bodyguard and quits on the spot.]]

* OvershadowedByAwesome: As more time passes with Sgt. Hatred as the Venture bodyguard, we get to see that he actually has some competence, but it's all too easy to compare him to [[{{Badass}} Brock]].

** If Dermott was half as awesome as he says he is, he'd be right up there with [[BadAss Brock]]. Instead, he gets his ass handed to him by Dean. Triana sees through his bullshit even before that.

** The season three finale. [[spoiler:The three assassins who tried to kill Brock turned out to ''not'' have been with the OSI, but they were Molotov's assassin rivals. However, the others don't know yet and Molotov is still likely not an enemy of the Venture family, so they're safe for the time being; it also appears Sergeant Hatred might perform a HeelFaceTurn. However, Brock's experience with the whole situation convinces him to quit the OSI, thus he also quits being the family bodyguard. Finally, the attack on the Venture Compound by the Monarch left the boys' clones destroyed, but Dr. Venture may be likely to protect his boys more often (as he told Hank, "you only live once"). His cloning experiments (which are illegal) have been made public. [[RecurringHenchman 24]] and H.E.L.P.eR are dead; the former now talks with his best friend, Henchman 21, from beyond the grave (he also helped said friend become a {{Badass}}) and the latter had his head placed on a walking eye Dr. Venture made some time ago.]]

** Doctor Byron Orpheus the necromancer is obviously named after Orpheus, a figure from Greek mythology who traveled into the underworld to meet with Hades and bring his wife back from the dead. Like Byron, the mythical Orpheus [[TearJerker also failed to get his wife back.]]

** In the Halloween special, "A Very Venture Halloween," [[spoiler: Dean learns that he and Hank are clones; furthermore, no efforts are made to wipe his memory or cover-up the knowledge. After a brief reflection on the ethics of "playing God", he decides to drown his sorrows in cheap beer.]]
** At some point between Seasons 4 and 5, [[spoiler:Dean figures out that he and Hank are clones, which is why he's suddenly adopted his rebellious emo persona. When Hank finally asks Dean what's bothering him, Dean finally tells Hank that they are both clones and not even the original Hank and Dean. However, in an aversion of this trope, Hank thinks that being a clone is pretty awesome and is not bothered at all, which helps Dean feel better, too.]]

* * ActionHero: Brock Samson, to the point of [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction.]]
-->'''Brock:''' I've seen enough spinnin' butterfly... naked boy armies... screw this... I'd rather, uh, quit.
-->'''Brock:''' Look, you don't want my life, Hank. This job's not all it's cracked up to be. I've been at this for over twenty years and what do I have to show for it? A metal plate in my chest, Vatican karate gorilla blood on my hands and a footlocker full of [[BlandNameProduct Manboro miles]]?

* ArentYouGoingToRavishMe: Dr. Girlfriend is the TropeNamer! When Brock discovers in bed, she says something along these lines. Brock declines, still suspecting that she's a post-op transsexual. Dr. Girlfriend is somewhat disappointed and pouts that she's not going to beg.
