** Raythor counts. He has no extra or magical abilities, he's merely a normal Meridian member of Phobos's army. That doesn't stop him from crawling his way out of a bottomless pit, a feat that took six months and left him gaunt from starvation by the time he reached the top.

* TheBadGuyWins: In both seasons, the Guardians are completely helpless to stop the villains from carrying out their scheme, until they finally get to win in the season finale.



* BadassNormal: Caleb - by the end of the second season, he's pretty much the only character who ''can't'' shoot some form of laser beams. Caleb eventually molds Matt into this with warrior combat training, to the point that our musician can match Caleb in a spar, but then Matt gets powers of his own, leaving Caleb alone once more.

* NoLovesIntersect: Rather than crush on a character for the entire series, the characters actually have the nerve to break trope tradition and ask the character out with little hesitance, which causes them to hook up fairly early on in the series.

* TheSixthRanger: Many thought Elyon would be it. And while the show does indicate that Caleb fills this category, the comic offers somebody different entirely.

* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: Averted: when Nerissa first appears, she is ''much'' weaker and less influential than Phobos ever was, though that does change overtime.

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: The Heart of Kandrakar grants 4 of the girls elemental powers, and to Will, the power to give them those powers! Maybe not totally lame, but at the least, unfair. {{Retcon}}ned in Season 2 of the TV show when it's explained she had no powers as most of hers were used to keep the Veil up. When the Veil is lowered, she gains a lot of new abilities as well as her own element, Quintessence.

The five girls ([[FunWithAcronyms whose initials spell "Witch"]]) form a classic FiveManBand, plus a sort-of SixthRanger (one of the Meridian rebels, who's pretty much there from the beginning), a {{Mentor|s}} (grandmother of one of the girls from a previous team, CHYKN), and a NonHumanSidekick (a goblin-like smuggler from Meridian who is both cute and utterly gross) which sounds fairly standard, but the show distinguishes itself by clever plotting, writing, and bold attempt at creating a series with a centralized plotline that develops each episode with little-to-no filler episodes. Most of the episodes revolve around chess-like maneuvers between the villains and the girls, and the girls start out on the losing side of the war, and must slowly build up their victories. However, they tend to lose more often than they win due to the villain's cunning intelligence, but the plot still moves one step closer to its conclusion.

This show is also notable for totally avoiding many tropes found in the action genre. One example is the SortingAlgorithmOfEvil; neither Phobos' minions or the girls get any more powerful, or visibly better at using their powers. Instead, the CharacterDevelopment comes from how both sides treat their war. The girls initially treat their missions like a game or a nuisance, and get much more serious with time. Both the girls and Phobos get much smarter, too. Early episodes have the girls making Keystone Kops blunders in trying to hide their secret, while the bad guys make ham-fisted attacks. By the end, both the girls and Phobos are incredibly sneaky. The second-season avoids it as well, even though the girls get some upgrades and neat new powers, they still have trouble beating the season's BigBad Nerissa, even though she's arguably weaker than Phobos. The trouble the girls have stems from Nerissa's [[TheChessmaster uncanny scheming ability]].

** Arguably, the main characters and our heroes as they keep up TheMasquerade. Strangely, they're actually pretty ''bad'' liars and this leads to [[spoiler:Elyon believing Cedric over them]] as he's a ''much'' better one.



* FiveBadBand: The second season gives us one.
** BigBad-Nerissa, doubles as TheEvilGenius due to her [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitchy]] ways.
** TheDragon-Shagon
** TheBrute(s) Khor and Tridart share this role.
** TheDarkChick-Ember
* [[FiveManBand Five-Girl Band]]:
** TheLeader / TheHeart- Will, since she holds the Heart of Krandrakar.
** TheLancer / TheChick- Cornelia
** [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]] - Taranee
** [[TheBigGuy The Big Girl]] - Irma
** KidAppealCharacter - Hay Lin
** SixthRanger - Caleb, TheOneGuy; later, Matt as well



** Will and her mother could count as AmbiguouslyBrown.

* [[NewSuperPower New Powers]]: Beginning in season 2 the girls all get an expansion in powers. Along with several PsychicPowers (see below) Hay Lin can turn [[{{Invisibility}} invisible]], Cornelia gained the ability to grow taller and Irma could change the colors of clothes, possibly other things, too. The biggest upgrade has to be Will finally having a few defensive powers of her own as she accepted her control over Quintessence.

* [[UngratefulBastard Ungrateful Bitch]]: Kadma in the show. She was suckered by Nerissa that the Guardians were attacking Zamballa, causing her to imprison the group when they first arrive until only Taranee was left. When the ruse was found out, she doesn't bother to apologize for her mistakes nor thank them for saving Zamballa and reviving some of her coma-induced subjects after she coldly undermined the Guardians' abilities that they could. This more than annoyed Taranee.
