*** [[http://madmaxmovies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=8524 As it turns out]], ''Bad Bob'' is actually the reason ''Fury Road'' exists in the first place.

* TheScrappy: Mike the TV, both in-universe and out. Mainly because he won't stop talking. The episode "Wizards, Warriors, and a Word from our Sponsor" [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap rescues him from the scrappy heap]] when he winds up in a game with all the others and has to work together with them to win.



** Bob's facial expressions ventured into this trope mostly in season 1, like his face when he sees Megabyte on the guitar in "Talent Night". It has to do with the wide eyes.

* AwesomeEgo: Bob's a little high on himself and his own {{Badass}} status sometimes. And why shouldn't he be? He spent two seasons giving MagnificentBastard Megabyte the runaround. After his defeat in "Web World Wars," it's little wonder that when he later returns mid-season 3, he's a little more down-to-earth.

** The episode ''Bad Bob'', while an AffectionateParody of ''Film/TheRoadWarrior'' actually somehow bears more resemblance to ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' despite being made almost a decade earlier. The "Mega Truck"'s elaborate design, which, being a CGI cartoon was not constrained by a prop department's budget, looks much closer to Furiosa's War Rig than the hastily modified tanker truck from the earlier film, the episode's guitar-heavy soundtrack bears an uncanny resemblance to the music of the Doof Warrior rather than the orchestral score used for the classic trilogy and both this episode and ''Fury Road'' feature turning the rig around and returning to their starting location as a major plot point. Also notable is the fact that there's finally a real ''VideoGame/MadMax'' computer game.

* ClicheStorm: Certain episodes have their plot built on a long string of cliches, but it is either done as an AffectionateParody or otherwise knows what it is doing.

* GeniusBonus: The more you know about computer hardware, computer software, computer programming and CGI the more entertaining the show becomes. Several character's names are rooted in technical terminology. In particular the character designs for Phong (phong shading) and Ray Tracer (Ray Tracing) actually demonstrate the CG principles they are referencing.

* IronWoobie: When Enzo becomes Matrix, he nose-dives into this trope. He survives untold amounts of games, and as he spends more and more time searching for Mainframe, it hardens his heart and makes a mess of his psyche. Hell, he might've gone straight-up crazy without [=AndrAIa=] and Frisket there for support. Also leans toward JerkassWoobie in his more aggressive moments.



* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Mike the TV. In principle, could easily fall into a number of [[TheScrappy scrappy]] tropes, but he is considered obnoxious by pretty much everyone else in the show. This made his antics skew on the side of endearing to the fans rather than smug goofiness. It helped too that his introductory episode had him rebooting in a game where everyone had to work together to win, and Mike did his part admirably.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The first two seasons are this on a somewhat superficial level - they were very, very obviously animated in the mid-1990s.

* VillainDecay: Inverted. Over the course of the series, Megabyte became progressively more dangerous and went from concocting subversive schemes to [[TheBadGuyWins eventually taking over Mainframe and preparing an invasion of the Supercomputer]]. Even when the heroes seemed to have defeated him at last, Megabyte comes back in season four; stronger than ever [[ForTheEvulz and completely psychotic, to boot]]. He's still as vicious and cunning as he was in the past, but now has the ability to impersonate binomes and sprites. Oh and any sense of restraint or morality he ''may'' have had before is now [[OhCrap totally gone]].
