* CaptainObviousAesop: The pilot had the aesop "Slavery is bad." Really, there weren't enough plot points or other threads for the moral to be anything else. The "[[DudeNotFunny Taunting someone for a skin-blemish]]" potential moral is never closed. Nope. Slavery is bad.

* CrackIsCheaper: When compared to its competition: In a world of $4 booster packs, Redakai cards cost ''$6''. $13 starter decks elsewhere, ''$19'' for Redakai. Their most expensive product (The "Championship Tin", ''$30'') is ''required'' to play the game.
* [[DesignatedHero Designated Heroes]]: Team Stax. They can hurl fire around forests, trigger avalanches, throw rocks at random people and ''[[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop string someone to a Pterodactyl by their ankle]]'' and ''still'' be treated like good guys.
* DracoInLeatherPants: See EnsembleDarkhorse below
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Imperiaz: [[ParentsInDistress Their backstory is sympathetic]], so they got many fans before their actual first appearance in the actual show, where they get treated like dirt not worthy of sympathy. Hasn't stopped them from getting it, though, and many fans are mad at the writers for not portraying them more sympathetically.

* NeedsMoreLove: Ironically so, given some of the rather blunt and scathing Tropes on this page, but the show itself is a nice and overall decent Cartoon with some impeccable SceneryPorn.

* TheScrappy: Mookee. He is [[TheMillstone TheMillstone]] whenever he does '''anything''' other than pilot Team Stax's ship; his voice is annoying and he comes across as a [[EthnicScrappy racist caricature of Asians]] with his [[UnfortunateImplications Fu Manchu mustache, squinty eyes and buck teeth]]. In one episode he wants to be a Kairu warrior and when Team Stax lets him he spends the whole fight fanboying then trips and accidentally fires a laser at the tree they were trying to protect. After being called out on this he promises to get better; then in the next fight [[TooDumbToLive he screws up again]] but gets lucky and saves the day through his clumsiness. [[DesignatedHero Everyone treats him like a great hero for this]], but at least they decide not to let him be a Kairu warrior anymore. Whether or not his infrequent appearances after early season 1 is a good thing or not is up to you.

* AssPull: ''Invoked'' by the writers when talking about "Inner Kairu", which it is said will "develop when the time is right". Write yourself into a hole? [[TimeToUnlockMoreTruePtential Time for a miraculous Inner Kairu boost!]]
