* MamaBear: Implied in "An Elephant in the Room", when the brothers mention their mom calling both of them that morning, and how she's regularly checking up on them. And of course there's all the literal examples.

** Not just in the animated segments either: the live-action FramingDevice scenes often have the RealLife Kratts observing exotic wildlife such as the galidia (ring-tailed mongoose) and striped tenrec in Madagascar.

** In the opossum story, both brothers' opossum-power suits have pouches, probably because they'd both touched Jill the mother opossum to activate their disks.

** On that matter, don't lose the creature power suits, disagree with her on whether or not it's more important to find said suits or a new species… just… [[BewareTheNiceOnes just don't make her mad at all]].

* {{Fanservice}}: Kratt brothers in wetsuits for female viewers (both animated and live segment), and Aviva in a wetsuit for males. Arguably, any time they butt-shot one of the characters (has happened to Chris in "Polar Bears Don't Dance", Aviva in another episode, and Martin in yet another). Weak, perhaps, but that's probably the closest we're getting to real fanservice with this one. Let's not forget some of the [[FetishFuel Creature suits]]…

* LarynxDissonance: Chris [[GenderFlip imitating a girl,]] [[FemininityFailure with pure swagger no less,]] in "When Fish Fly". The purpose? To mock Koki and Aviva. About one minute later, the said girls [[TakeThat reflect the same sentence Chris had spoken right back to the two brothers,]] resulting in a CollectiveGroan from both of them.

* MagicAIsMagicA: Subverted with the Creature Power Suits. Most of the time, they need a disc, DNA, and a button press. On occasion, they've been activated without a disc ("Tazzy Chris", where the activation button was bitten), from the other brother's suit ("Mom of a Croc", where Chris activated his dragonfly suit off Martin's already activated dragonfly suit), with the wrong disc ("Mom of a Croc", where they activated their Gharial crocodile discs off an Austrailian alligator; it just didn't last as long), and even vocally ("Whale of a Squid").

* TruthInTelevision: Donita's fashion line is a subversion of this, but Gourmand in Stuck on Sharks played this trope painfully (and [[{{Squick}} squickily]]) straight- Shark Fin Soup is a real (and real expensive) thing.
