* GreenAesop: Inverted in one episode where the spies have to stop an "evil" scientist from using the sun to power the earth in place of nuclear reactors. According to the Spies (paraphrased): "The sun isn't something to be captured and used up! It must be free!" Evidently nuclear power is fine by them.

** Plots involving BalefulPolymorph of victims or other body alterations always target Clover, the one most concerned about her looks, whether it's being shrunk, turned into a cat, fattened up by highly-addictive cookies, or even having her legs stolen and replaced.
** Alex and Clover take turns being the one who gets kidnapped, though Alex, being the most athletic, is often [[BoundAndGagged tied up or locked in a cell as a restrained hostage]] (and this is considering that it tends to happen to ''all three of them'' at least OncePerEpisode.

** Also, whenever the girls are shown playing soccer, the animation draws much inspiration from ''CaptainTsubasa'', from the balls taking on an oval shape after being kicked, all the way the ball spinning in the goalkeeper's hands until his gloves are fizzled out. Especially if Alex (who is a professed soccer fan, as per "Spy Soccer") is involved.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mindy and Britney are completely absent from Season 6, and no explanation is given for either. Mindy's absence is especially jarring as she was in nearly every episode of the 5th season.

* SpyCatsuit
SpyCatsuit: The uniform worn by the trio spies is a shiny plastic catsuit. The stealth part of the trope is usually subverted, as each suit is of a unique bright color. At other times, the suits can change appearance to look like more ordinary clothing, subverting the skintight aspect of the trope.
** In one episodes, one of their gadgets were a "literal" catsuit, a skintight black suit with cat ears on the hood. It was specifically designed to give the wearer the nimbleness of a cat.
* StatusQuoIsGodStatusQuoIsGod: The show would usually flip back to status quo whenever Clover, Alex or Sam got a boyfriend. Clover's longest relationship was a long-distance relationship with a fellow WOOHP agent who was reassigned to WOOHP's Australian division, afterwhich he was never seen or mentioned again until they officially broke up in season 6, and while they were together Clover still fawned over and flirted with other guys like usual.

to:

* TheSweatDropTheSweatDrop: Ddes it quite frequently.



* UnlimitedWardrobe: While on the job the trio wear the same color-coded jumpsuits, in their "spare time" not only have a seemingly endless wardrobe, they love to go shopping as well. Apparently they have rich parents. And they do live in Beverly Hills, which in fiction never has anyone with less than upper class income.

to:

* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastleYourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: "A Spy Is Born", has a similar CliffHanger. You see that the girls have captured a rogue filmmaker, and that he's been put on a plane... and then you see in the final scene that he's escaped and captured Alex. Cue part two of the season finale...[[OutOfOrder Which comes after a truckload of episodes before that (which confused a lot a fans)]].

* BalefulPolymorph: This tends to happen to the heroines ''a lot''. In fact, if this weren't a kids' show, the BodyHorror Trope would probably apply rather often.
