* DesignatedHero: Usually averted (the {{Villain Protagonist}}s' psychosis mostly are played for laughs, and their enemies are most of the time worst or no better than them), but there have been episodes where it becomes hard to root for them, even when not taking the whole thing seriously. The episode with Cindy, Gladys and Damien [[spoiler:slaughtering [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]]]] can lead to a major DudeNotFunny case.

* CompleteMonster: Surprisingly for a show involving a whole company of {{Villain Protagonist}}s, most characters avert this trope, as they almost all display at least one (usually slightly) redeeming quality: [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes the Trueman care about each other like a regular family]], Hippolyte [[UndyingLoyalty is devoted to his work and loyal to Trueman]], Caleb is a PunchClockVillain with no especially evil tendencies off-service, and Parker is the [[TokenGoodTeammate nicest guy]] on Earth. Even the antagonists are at worst {{Jerkass}}, at best {{Knight Templar}}s. [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Damien]], and possibly [[spoiler:[[EvilCounterpart Alternate George Trueman]]]], seem to be the only characters to play this trope straight.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: [[spoiler: Pyro killed CaptainAmerica, asking Mello if there was a way to save him : ]] "Well, when there is just enough meat left from someone to form the volumic equivalent of a hamster, I think we can say he is dead" ** Followed by another jewel : "Oh...Superheroes wear costumes too! And policemen, soldiers...oh ! And even Chinese waiters ! ''You're gonna kill every nem seller in Paris ?''" ** This character just gets the best lines : Season 3 finale [[spoiler:upon the arrival of Hitomi: "C'est Ó vous le buffet campagnard?!" / "Is that country buffet yours?!"]] ** Sadoman: "I'm out of Pain...KEVIIIN !" * Kevin appears, wearing what can be described as "a Flamboyant Butterfly Suit". [[EyeScream Sadoman's eyes EXPLODE seeing Kevin]]* "Okay. I'm full of Pain now." ** Heck, [[spoiler:Hitomi]]'s whole intervention during this episode probably counts ! ** "Oh, sorry. [[TheDitz Deborah]]'s power took control for a second" * DesignatedHero: usually averted (the VillainProtagonist{{s}}' psychosis usually is played for laugh, and their enemies are most of the time worst or not better than them), but there have been episode where it becomes hard to root for them even when not taking the whole thing seriously. The episode with Cindy, Gladys and Damian [[spoiler:slaughtering [[SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]]]] can lead to a major DudeNotFunny case. * FoeYay: parodied with Hippolyte and Carla; in earlier episodes, Carla ''did'' shows some flirtiatious tendencies toward Hippolyte, but it was more of AffablyEvil BaddieFlattery than actual attraction, and Hippolyte was almost always pissed off. In season 4, when it's revealed their alternate counterpart are lover, Hippolyte acts shocked, and Carla is so disgusted she has a VomitDiscretionShot.

* GodModeSue: Played with. Aegis was a group of formerly four [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway lame heroes]]: two fortunetellers, someone increasing gravity a bit, someone powerless...). [[spoiler: Then AppliedPhlebotinum suddenly gave them superpowers above anybody else on earth (PlayingWithFire, psychic shield, return attacks, telekinesis...) and made them invincible. In order to beat them, Truman gained temporary powers so high he could knock them with his little finger.]] * GrowTheBeard: initially, the serie was mostly gag of the week type, but later evolved to get actual story arcs and a larger reccurring cast. * HoYay : Hippolyte and Caleb, though they are more like HeterosexualLifePartners.

* VillainDecay: the CC went from a relatively competent group who could overthrow Trueman and take over the Flanders Company for a short amount of time to a bunch of [[TheDitz Ditz]] with lame powers and poor sense of fashion that are rendered obsolete when compared to [[KnightOfCerebus Aegis]]. ** Carla wasn't hit as hard but still gets her part: in season 2, she was a MagnificentBitch and a powerful PsychoElectro who was the first character onscreen to handle Damien and could handle ''all protagonists together'' of her own. In season 3, she is GenreBlind to the point of not realizing [[spoiler:Armand would betray her once Aegis would have been dealt with]], and her brief attempt to come back in season 4 [[TheWorfEffect is easily twarted by ▄ber-Caleb]]. After that, she goes through a HeelFaceTurn and becomes a protagonists, which is probably the best. * WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpidmt_flander-s-company-s4-extra-schmurtz_fun No comment]].
