->''"What the wallaby are those dinosaurs doing with Hitler? I mean none of this makes any sense."''
-->-- '''Tucker'''

Ever imagined what would have happened if an [[MultinationalTeam international team]] of [[SpyFiction secret agents]] had fought [[AnachronismStew Hitler in the 1960s]]? If not, that's no surprise, but David Ashby and Dario Russo somehow dreamed up this eccentric premise and went crazy with it. Series 2 switches things up by putting the action in [[TheEighties the '80s]]. [[AnAsskickingChristmas At Christmas.]]

Developed by the creators of ''ItalianSpiderman'', ''Danger 5'' is an oddly compelling action/comedy set in a bizarre AlternateUniverse [[{{Retraux}} based on cheesy old TV and pulp fiction cliches]]. It features the Danger 5 team directly assigned to thwart Hitler's diabolical plans, which involve anything and everything from [[WidgetSeries Japanese robots to Nazi-controlled dinosaurs]].

''Danger 5'' began with a short series of prequel {{Webisode}}s available [[http://www.youtube.com/user/dinosaurworldwide?feature=watch here]], followed by a full television series broadcast on its parent network Creator/{{SBS}}. The TV show is [[http://www.hulu.com/danger-5 on Hulu]]. It's also internationally available as a DVD boxset. If you like shows that are uniquely, weirdly, raucously fun (especially ''Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace'', with which it has a ''lot'' in common) this is worth a look.

Series 2 premiered on Creator/SBS2 on 4 January 2015.

The trailer can be viewed [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z09bNgSeMI here]].

* AnachronismStew: WWII in the '60s with dinosaurs and mechanically enhanced soldiers. Season 2 has the Cold War in the 80's with lizardmen.

** Danger 5 kill themselves [[spoiler:rather than surrender to an invincible Hitler who's taken over the world. He just brings them back to life.]]
* {{Atlantis}}: In "Final Victory"

* BadGuyBar: In the first episode, the Black Dog, where Hitler and the Nazis chill out.

-->"Ve vould just like to deposit this week's collection."
* BadFuture
* BadSanta: In Season 2, Hitler dresses as Santa, so he can assassinate [[spoiler:Colonel Chestbridge while he's out Christmas shopping. He's still doing it after he takes over the world.]]

* BeastAndBeauty: Mengele is about to shoot Claire, when his dinosaur-headed servant stops him. "I love her!"

* BigElectricSwitch: Das Fuse Box.
* BigGood: The Colonel. Given a twist in that he's a total jackass. Also, Massimiliano Importante, the President of the World.
* BigNo: Several; there's even a Big Goodbye in Italian when a carload of mooks goes off a cliff.
-->"Ciaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
* BigDamnKiss: Tucker/Claire and Ilsa/Jackson kiss in the final episode of Season 1; subverted with the latter when [[MyGirlIsASlut Ilsa goes on to snog]] the President of the World.
* BigRedButton: Used to activate Stalin's DoomsdayDevice, and the {{Ejection Seat}}s on Danger 5's [[AnachronismStew prop-driven fighter planes]].
* {{Brainwashed}}: Allied soldiers are being turned into Japanese robot-soldiers in "Kill-Men of the Rising Sun"
* BilingualBonus: Ilsa's dialog in particular contains a few gems, from bowdlerized subtitles to entirely untranslated cursing.
* BilingualDialogue: Ilsa only speaks in subtitled Russian, the rest of the Danger 5 team speaks English, Hitler and various goons speak German, and everyone understands each other perfectly.
* BlackComedy: Particularly homicidal slapstick.
* BlingBlingBang: The EvilPlan in "Hitler's Golden Murder Palace" is to make golden submachine guns to make the German army invincible...somehow. Rommel takes this UpToEleven with his golden tank. All of them turn out to be AwesomeButImpractical.

-->'''Ilsa:''' There was something in my head!
-->'''Jackson:''' You've always got something in your head!
* BrickJoke: In Season 2 the Colonel is surrounded by Hitler and his mooks.
-->'''Colonel:''' Let's sit down and talk this out...
-->'''Hitler:''' Nein!
-->'''Colonel:''' I said sit down! ''(draws the Sit Down Gun and blasts mooks)''
* BritishStuffiness: Lampshaded when Claire enters a train compartment with a British Field Marshall, and he complains it's already stuffy enough as it is.
* ButterFace: The all-mighty Sheba is introduced via a slow pan up her sexy body...only to reveal she's a beastwoman!
* ButterflyOfDoom: Spoofed; our heroes travel back in time to WorldWarII and despite [[OnlySaneMan Pierre]] frantically trying to convince them of this trope proceed to kill Nazis with abandon, party with their younger selves, and SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong. This results in a BadFuture -- not because of anything they did, but [[HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct because they were stuffing about instead of concentrating on their original mission: KILL HITLER!]]
* CallingYourAttacks: In the giant mecha combat. Again in the Season 2 finale.
* CatapultNightmare: Jackson has a nightmare where he's being [[ArmouredClosetGay blown by a male North Korean interrogator]]. Cue BigNo as he wakes up.
* ChainsawGood:
** Hitler's mech's "Victory Chainsaw". It has a flamethrower, too!

* CompanionCube: In season 2, [[spoiler: Claire's severed head.]]
* CombatStilettos: A literal version when Ilsa assembles a gun from her heels and shoots the villain.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment:
** Tucker is captured by Italian sailors and forced to drink [[NationalStereotypes endless cups of coffee]]. Though the Italians might have just been partying.
** A band-playing monkey says when he hears the evil Nazis are going to stick music in concentration camps, "It's time to take this Mengele down from C minor to B diminished."
** The first episode of Season 2 features Jackson about to receive fellatio from a North Korean soldier. This becomes a plot point again in Episode 5 when Jackson is about to receive the same punishment, this time from a zombified Nazi.
** In the final episode, the male members of Danger 5 are TrappedInTVLand, a sitcom starring Hitler.
* CouldntFindALighter: Jackson loads a cigarette into his Colt automatic and fires it (fully lit) into Claire's mouth.
* CradlingYourKill: Inevitably used for Pierre's perfect-cocktail RunningGag, OnceAnEpisode.
* CurseCutShort / KilledMidSentence: "Danger 5 will hunt you down, motherfu--"
* DangerouslyCloseShave: Spoofed when an assassin tries to kill Ilsa with a electric shaver.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Series 2 begins with the death of [[spoiler: The Colonel and Claire]]. Jackson has PTSD. Hitler [[spoiler: comes back from the dead after killing Satan]]. A few one-shot villains from the first series return with varying degrees of BodyHorror.
** DenserAndWackier: That said, the series also becomes even more ridiculous as a result.
* DefeatEqualsExplosion / LaughingMad: A female Nazi agent laughs insanely after being thrown out a plane before exploding for no apparent reason.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Numerous dialogue examples, e.g. German golden superweapons made of gold. Mengele's introduction is an excellent example:
--> "Professor Johann Filk of the International League of Sciencemongers. I am a scientist. A man of science. I've been practicing science on this plateau for nearly 10 years."
* DepravedHomosexual: Himmler and Heydrich.
* DesignerBabies: Turns out Holly was genetically created to be the perfect Aryan woman.
* DinosaursAreDragons: The dinosaur Ilsa fights can breathe fire.
* DisguisedInDrag: Pierre in a corset and blond wig in "Fresh Meat for Hitler's Sex Kitchen". [[PaperThinDisguise Without covering up his moustache]], naturally.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Ilsa makes Jackson lose his staring contest with Tucker by [[GoingCommando taking off her panties]] and throwing them in his face. The fact that he can hear Ilsa crossing and uncrossing her long leather boots doesn't help.
** Lampooned to the nth degree when a teenage boy is too busy looking at porn to notice that a girl has just ripped off her dress and is taking a shower with him.
* DoomsdayDevice: Stalin has one that will destroy the world if the Nazis conquer the USSR.
* {{Doppelganger}}: Danger 5 are cloned in "Final Victory"
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Ilsa on Khruschev. She treats it as "revenge" for him dumping her.
* DressingAsTheEnemy: How Danger 5 attempt to kill Hitler in the first episode. Also, Tucker while infiltrating the Swiss brothel in a later episode, dresses as a Nazi captain. Tucker, Jackson and Pierre repeat this again in a Season 2 episode. [[spoiler:The Colonel and Holly dress ''inside the bodies'' of Hitler's henchmen.]]
* EasyAmnesia: How Ilsa explains to Rommel why his wife hasn't been in touch.
-->'''Rommel:''' You've had amnesia for two years?
-->'''Ilsa:''' Yes. After I was hit by the mortar in Stalingrad I wandered through Europe with a group of priests until a magician brought back my memories, then I came to find you.
* EurekaMoment: Any time Danger 5 suddenly realise they're amongst the enemy.
-->'''Tucker:''' I've only ever traveled on one other airline that had this many canine cop shows.\\
'''Jackson:''' Yeah? What was it?\\
'''Tucker:''' It was a...a...before the war, and a... My God! This is a German airline! ''(stewardesses stick MP-40 submachine guns in their faces)''
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Including standard unconvincing 'spontaneous' laughter, or [[DissonantLaughter laughter at inappropriate moments]] like when someone has just died. One such moment even ends with Tucker adding a "'Cause he's dead!"
* EverybodyMustGetStoned: TheEighties Danger 5 all snort coke with impunity, even Claire.
* EveryoneComesBackFantasyPartyEnding: Every episode in Season 1 features a party in the Danger 5 headquarters featuring the main cast and all the major characters from the episode (including Hitler!) during the credits roll. In Season 2 [[spoiler:Claire does return as a ghost to give Tucker a blow job. Averted with Pierre who gets killed in the final montage by a jealous husband.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Nazi-controlled dinosaurs.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: The de-evolved Nazi ape-men in the first episode, and the beatnik ape-men that Pierre befriends in Antarctica.
* EvilLaugh: Delivered by an evil Nazi hound!
* EvilMakeover: The sexually-transmitted Nazi virus turns people into [[BlondesAreEvil blonde-haired]], blue-eyed German-speaking Nazis.
* FacialCompositeFailure: Tucker does up a facial composite of the high school student Hitler is searching for. The result clearly shows that Tucker's a few short of a six-pack.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Hitler is ''always'' [[VillainExitStageLeft going to get away]]. Except in the finale.
* FantasyKitchenSink: Diamond women, robots, talking dogs, you name it, it's there.
* FingerGun: "Who needs a gun, when you've got... imagination?"
* FiveManBand:
** Tucker: TheLeader.
** Ilsa: TheLancer.
** Claire: TheSmartGuy.
** Jackson: TheBigGuy.
** Pierre: TheChick.
*** Later Holly: TheSixthRanger.
* ForWantOfANail: After Hitler takes over the world, Pierre tries to make his time-traveling cocktail to SetRightWhatOnceWentWrong, only he doesn't have the ingredients as the whole world is vegetarian, like Hitler.
* FutureBadass: Danger One, [[spoiler:a BadAss Holly raised by the Colonel. Becomes a NegatedMomentOfAwesome when normal Holly inadvertently blows her head off.]]
* FuroScene: Jackson, Ilsa and Claire make use of a hot spring.
* AGoodNameForARockBand: ''Dead Hitler'', playing in a nightclub with [[DeadGuyOnDisplay Hitler's body on display]]. Then he comes back to life as a zombie.
* GladiatorGames: Mengele forces his prisoners to fight his mutants.
* GoodGuyBar: The tavern that LaResistance are operating out of. The Danger 5 HQ doubles as one, as well. In fact, one might also argue that anywhere Pierre goes automatically becomes this trope.
-->"Drinks?"
* {{Gorn}}: Mostly it's a pretty bloodless show, but when Mengele is torn apart by his dinosaur mutants, it spontaneously becomes very graphic. Given they suddenly started walking like zombies beforehand, it's probably a reference to the [[OnceAnEpisode obligatory]] zombie movie disembowelment.
** Season 2 goes and takes it UpToEleven, with [[spoiler:Claire]] getting [[spoiler:her]] head chopped off in the first episode, then [[spoiler:Carlos Mendeza]] getting their head chopped off and Hitler killing a random girl with a shark.
* GreenEyedMonster: Ilsa is jealous because Hitler prefers Claire [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty be brought to his quarters]] instead of her. Jackson and Rommel fighting over Ilsa, too.
* GroinAttack: A villain who's trying to murder Claire finds that tucking a Colt .45 in your pants is a very bad idea.
** Hitler tests his golden [=MP40=] on a target with aiming circles on the head and groin. And at the end of the episode Ilsa expresses her annoyance over Jackson's jealousy by using her FemmeFatalons on his crotch.
* GunsAkimbo: Hitler with his golden submachine guns.
* GunsDoNotWorkThatWay: Like everything else, reality goes out the window like a fleeing Hitler.
* GunStripping: FutureBadass Holly does the blindfold version while delivering exposition of how she came to be.
* HairyHammerspace: Stalin's stache, which he uses to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e7z9X1YfGU bizarre if manly effect]]. The same gag is repeated with the President of the World's DodgyToupee in "Final Victory".
* HalfHumanHybrid: In "Lizard Soldiers of the Third Reich", Dr. Mengele produces half-human, half-dinosaur Nazi soldiers. Later it turns out that Mengele himself is a lizardman.

-->(On the verge of being eaten by a T. rex) "And I always thought I'd die of alcohol poisoning."
* HealItWithFire: Jackson fires his Luger into a wound to sterilize it.

* HumongousMecha: The Danger Warrior.
* HookersAndBlow: Jackson in Season 2.
* IHaveYouNowMyPretty: Happens often to the virginal Claire.
* IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight / CannotSpitItOut: Claire and Jackson are being strangled by brainwashed Tucker and Ilsa. Claire admits to Tucker that "we need you and...[[AnguishedDeclarationOfLove I can't go on without you!]]" This wakes up Tucker, who promptly knocks out Ilsa [[InterruptedDeclarationOfLove while Jackson is stumbling over his own]] LoveConfession. Afterwards, however, Claire refuses to admit to Tucker that she actually meant what she said.
* IllTakeTwoBeersToo: Jackson.
-->"I'll take Double [[BlandNameProduct Jim Bourbons]] on the rocks. ... No, ''two'' of them."
* ImmuneToBullets: The Carbonado-enhanced girls and the Japanese robo-soldiers. Later, Hitler himself.
-->"My God, they're weapon-proof."
* IndyPloy: "I've got a plan." "What is it?" ''"Improvise."''
* INeedAFreakingDrink / SmokingIsCool: As per the DeliberateValuesDissonance of the series.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: The same actors are reused over and over again for different minor roles in different episodes.
* {{Irony}}: The Colonel's catchphrase throughout series 1 was ''"Kill Hitler"''. In series 2, [[spoiler: Hitler kills him]].
* ItsAllMyFault: Tucker after Claire is apparently killed due to his water phobia.
** And again when [[spoiler: Claire is killed by Mendeza's sword]]
* {{Jerkass}}: The Colonel. His aggressive authoritarian-style leadership makes him slightly less repulsive than Hitler.
** He reveals in Series 2 that he doesn't care if the Danger 5 team gets killed in action, as it would mean that he'd get the credit for all their heroic deeds.
* JustFriends: "The Friend Zone? NOT THE ZONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!"
* KilledOffForReal:
** [[spoiler: Claire]] in the first episode of season 2.
* KnockoutGas
* LargeHam: About 80% of the cast seems to fulfill the trope to some degree. Special mention though has to go to Khruschev in the fourth and fifth episodes of Season 2, where he proceeds to dominate the screentime and is clearly enjoying it.
* LightFeminineDarkFeminine: Virginal IceQueen Claire and hard-drinking {{Sensual Slav|s}} Ilsa.
-->'''Claire:''' I'm sorry, Ilsa. If I only had the nerve to sleep with Mengele he would never have put that [[MindControl thing in your head]].
-->'''Ilsa:''' [[ReallyGetsAround All you had to do was sleep with him?]] ''(tries to throttle Claire)''
* LoveAtFirstPunch: Ilsa and Jackson try to kill each other on their first meeting.
* MakeMeWannaShout: Pierre kills his Nazi doppelganger with his BigNo after animated partner Kilroy gets shot.
* ManOnFire: Hitler shoots a gambler whose head bursts into flame for no apparent reason other than Hitler [[BlingBlingBang using a golden gun]].
* MilitaryMaverick: Jackson has some of these tendencies.
* MiniatureEffects: Used in every external shot so far. [[StylisticSuck Deliberately]] [[SpecialEffectsFailure unconvincing]], to keep with the series' theme.
* MissionBriefing: Given by an eagle-headed colonel.
-->"And as always, KILL HITLER!"
* TheMole: "Turns out this little mouse is actually a rat."
* MrExposition: Zeppelins start raining down gas on the Americans guarding the Statue of Liberty. Everyone starts choking except Jackson, who's calmly smoking a cigarette.
-->'''GI:''' ''(coughing)'' Say, are they those military-issue cigarettes, the kind that coat your lungs in a layer of thick menthol, making you impervious to gas?
-->'''[[TerseTalker Jackson:]]''' Yeah.
-->'''GI:''' Why didn't I get any? ''(dies)''
* MommasBoy: Tucker.
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain / AmericanAccents: The German air hostess.
-->"Oh ma Gard, welcarm to Bahama Airlines! Would you very much care for an All-Amarican beverage?"
* MotherRussiaMakesYouStrong: "Russians don't have emotions."
** Ilsa being flogged by Nazi torturers. "This is nothing compared to Siberia."
** Goes and gets subverted big-time later on when Ilsa is clearly upset over being dumped.
* MultinationalTeam: Danger 5. Tucker from Australia, Claire from the UK, Jackson from the US, Ilsa from Russia, and Pierre from 'Europe'.
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: Pierre wins over the monkey-men with his drum skills. Ilsa also proceeds to calm Khruschev over the phone.
* MustHaveCaffeine: The Italian submariners need a crate of coffee beans parachuted in to them every hour.
* MyGirlIsASlut / BareYourMidriff: Ilsa
* MysteriousAntarctica has a [[JungleJapes jungle-filled]] crater with dinosaurs, likely a ShoutOut to ''The Land Unknown'' (1957).
* NationalStereotypes:
** Jackson: the rough-and-ready, patriotic maverick American ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZQUCBOevNw as seen here]]).
** Pierre: the smooth-talking, urbane, womanising European (according to WordOfGod, his nationality is "Miscellaneous European").
** Ilsa: the hard-drinking Russian FemmeFatale.
** Claire: the sexually-repressed [[BritishStuffiness stuck-up Brit]].
** Tucker: The earnest and more than a little dorky Australian.
** The Italian submariners are only interested in coffee, women and song.
*** And in "The Diamond Girls" Danger 5 find themselves being chased by a carload of mooks.
-->'''Pierre:''' They're definitely Italians.
-->'''Claire:''' How can you tell?
-->'''Pierre:''' Well they're all immaculately dressed. And the driver keeps looking at his hair in the rear view mirror.
** The Swiss bleed ''money''.
* {{Nazisploitation}}: Parodied.
* NonverbalMiscommunication: As she's being led away by Nazi soldiers:
-->'''Claire:''' [winking] [subtitle: Stay on mission. We can handle ourselves.]
-->'''Tucker:''' [winking back] [subtitle: What?]
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:Danger 5 finally kill Hitler in the last episode, only to find they've killed his clone and the real Hitler is piloting a giant robot. They destroy the robot and are given the Key to the World, only for Hitler to turn up again in TheStinger. Season 2 takes this UpToEleven with every character being killed and resurrected (except for Claire, much to Tucker's continued distress).]]
* NowOrNeverKiss: Ilsa and Tucker share a drink and an AlmostKiss as they're about to be eaten by the T. rex.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: "Lizard Soldiers of the Third Reich" has music-crazed electric-guitarist gunslinger prehistoric primates. And mind-controlled Nazi dinosaur-men.
* NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat: And spoken just after Hitler gains {{immortality}} too.
* NudeColoredClothes: Ilsa doing the ''BasicInstinct'' thing during the staring contest. A closeup means it qualifies a SpecialEffectsFailure.
* OneWorldOrder: Outside of Nazi Germany, it seems as if the Free World has largely united under a World President, though individual countries are still mentioned.
** Season 2 goes and throws this idea out the window, with USSR-Land apparently being its own country and run by Nikita Khruschev.
* PantsPositiveSafety: General Chang tries to murder Claire, only to find that [[GroinAttack keeping a Colt .45 shoved down the front of your pants is a very bad idea]].
* PaperThinDisguise: Only Danger 5 and Michelle recognize who "Johnny Hitler" really is. Extra points for Hitler's high school disguise, which consists only of a varsity jacket.
* PhallicWeapon: A rifle pokes out of a toilet to shoot Hitler. A boy reading porn on the toilet grabs the barrel for ADateWithRosiePalms.
* PortraitPaintingPeephole
* PreviouslyOn: In Season 2. Each montage includes a scene that [[MissingTrailerScene wasn't actually shown in the previous episode]].
* ProductPromotionParade: Taken UpToEleven in the ending credits of each episode from Season 2.
* PsychicLink: Shown in squick-inducing detail with the Shaman woman's link with Tucker -- a tentacle shoots into his forehead, his eyes roll up and white fluid spurts from his mouth.
* PsychicNosebleed: Tucker upon hearing improvisational music, and Jackson during a staring match with Tucker. Tucker again in Season 2 also receives one due to Hitler opening his velcro wallet.
* PsychicPowers:
** Ilsa has the psychic power to calm monkeys and open locked elevators by swaying sexily and humming the ''Tetris'' theme.
** Pierre's psychomixology:
--> '''Pierre''': Tucker. How is that Vodka Marconi, my friend?
--> '''Tucker''': Satisfactory.
--> '''Pierre''': ''(concentrates and stares at the cocktail, which begins to bubble)''
--> '''Pierre''': How about now?
--> '''Tucker''': ''Above'' satisfactory!
* PsychoSerum: Cocaine in Season 2, even by the good guys.
* PulpMagazine: Goes so far as to spoof this on its [[BonusMaterial website]], where the pulpy pastiche articles are treated as factual news stories on the ''Danger 5'' 'verse.
* ReachingBetweenTheLines: Ilsa shoots someone over the phone. The same gag (of sorts) is reused again in the early episodes of Season 2 where Khruschev sends items to Ilsa over the phone system. (Namely a babushka bomb, a "drug orange" and a "well done" sticker.)
* RealityEnsues: Once in a great while to catch the viewers off-guard.
** Rommel's gold-plated super tank shines like an artillery beacon from a distance. Guess what happens.
** Mc Kenzie attempts to fight off a zombie infection by getting his pump on. Nope, doesn't work.
** Hitler orders that a DesignerBaby be created of the perfect Aryan woman. He's told he has to wait eighteen years before she grows up.
* {{Retraux}}: Core part of the show's appeal.
* RemonstratingWithAGun: The eagle-headed colonel's Sit Down Gun. Naturally he makes a point of pointing it at Claire.
* RogerRabbitEffect: Kilroy in "Final Victory"
* RoomDisservice: "Red wine with chicken?"
* RuleOfCool: Drives the plot.
* RunningGag:
** Dying characters passing on to Pierre the recipe for "the perfect ".
*** Subverted in the "previously on" recap at the beginning of the fourth episode of season 2. We see a dying character talking to Pierre about the "perfect salmon bouillabaisse" (a scene that didn't actually happen in any of the previous three episodes) and Pierre responds by pointing out that it's a soup recipe and he hates soup.
** Every season 2 episode recap for that matter features one scene involving Pierre that's never actually shown in previous episodes.
** Season 2 has Pierre always having "the right song" for a particular moment, then pulling out a cassette tape depicting as such (Usually something like "Stop Bitin (My Friend's Face)").
** The fake advertisements at the end; season 1 has regular products for adults, and season 2 has kids' toys based on events and characters in the season.
** The eagle-headed colonel picking on Claire in every briefing.
--> '''Claire''': That's a Tyrannosaurus rex!
--> '''Colonel''': No, Claire, that's a ''Tyrannosaurus rex''. Try thinking first before you open your mouth.
** Hitler jumping out the window. The same window.
** "My God! This is a German [X]!"
** Holly and her desire to get takeout.
* SanitySlippage: Tucker [[spoiler:after Claire is killed.]]
* SatireParodyPastiche: Mainly the latter two.
* ScarpiaUltimatum: MadScientist Mengele gives Claire the choice of sleeping with him or seeing her friends thrown to the mutants. A pair of lab coats hung up behind give Mengele the [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic appearance of horns]].
* SceneryCensor: A pterodactyl is doing [[BlackComedyRape something nasty]] to a ScreamingWoman behind a strategically-placed flower vase.
* ScrewYourself: [[spoiler:Hitler tries this on Holly-Hitler in episode 6 of season two. When Holly-Hitler stops him, he remarks, "Every man would have tried."]]
* SeriesGoal:
-->''KILL HITLER!''
* SexyBacklessOutfit: Ilsa in Rommel's casino.
* ShapedLikeItself
-->'''Mengele:''' I am a scientist -- a man of science.
-->'''Chang:''' You always were a joking man, Glenn. A man of jokes.
* ShirtlessScene: Tucker running around Antarctica with his shirt off. And when they get to Switzerland and he has to impersonate a Nazi officer, his shirt gets ripped open pretty quickly.
** Tucker-ninja during the training montage.
* ShowSomeLeg / SmokingHotSex: Ilsa has to stop Goebbels from entering the room where Danger 5 waits. A cut later and a stunned Goebbels does up his fly and staggers off while Ilsa gets up off her knees and calmly lights up a ciggie.
* ShoutOut:
** The eagle-headed colonel's jacket is a dead ringer for the ones worn on ''Series/ThePrisoner''.
** The pterodactyl's... assault... seems to reference a particular memetic porn video.
** The Toku parody - you can even hear a sound effect from [[Film/GodzillaVsMegalon Jet Jaguar]]!
** In series 2, episode 2, Ilsa wears the girls' school uniform from Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion.
** Japanese-speaking Mc Kenzie has the head of a [[KimbatheWhiteLion white lion]].
** Hitler's roller coaster car goes back in time when it hits [[Film/BackToTheFuture 88 kilometers per hour.]]
** Holly rides the majestic, feathered white Greg the pelican to [[TheNeverendingStory the sound of tinkly synth-pop]].
** Welcome To Hitlerland features another Toku shout-out, this time with SuperSentai (specifically MightyMorphinPowerRangers / KyoryuSentaiZyuranger). Albeit super sentai that strongly and brutally avert JustShootHim.
* SigilSpam: The Nazis put swastikas ''everywhere''.
-->It's not plugged in. ''(sees the socket pins on the power cord are shaped like a swastika)'' My God! It's a German plug!
* SlippingAMickey: Claire tries to do this to Mengele; unfortunately he recognises it from taste immediately.
* SmokingIsCool: As per the period (a statement in the credits declares the show is [[DecadeDissonance not trying to advocate smoking]]).
* SpecialEffectsFailure (InUniverse): Visible wires, obvious models, incomplete makeup, PeopleInRubberSuits. This just adds to the charm.
* SpotTheImposter: Figuring out who's a clone and who's the original using InsaneTrollLogic.
* SpyDrama: Part of the premise.
* StuffBlowingUp: With gusto.
* SuddenDownerEnding: In [[spoiler: Series 2,]] likely a parody of the similarly jarring ending of [[spoiler: Film/MiamiConnection]].
* SuperWindowJump: Hitler, involving the [[StockFootage same footage every time]]. In Season 2, Claire finally catches Hitler without a handy window nearby [[spoiler:only for Carlos to cut her head off.]] Hitler doesn't have to flee through windows, because most of the time he has the advantage. Instead there's a RunningGag of Danger 5 [[ThereWasADoor crashing through the flimsy set walls]].
* SurprisinglyGoodForeignLanguage: The series contains correct English, German, Russian, Italian, French, Japanese, and Cantonese. This is a result of being from Australia's premier multilingual channel, which prides itself on its linguistic diversity.
* SuspiciouslySmallArmy
-->"Field Marshall Jenkin's entire platoon has gone Nazi."
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Ilsa's CustomUniformOfSexy. And most other female characters.
* StupidJetpackHitler: Practically part of the premise.
* SurrealHumor: Why are there people with eagle-heads in this series? Or talking dogs?
** "Do you ''WANT'' me to use the Sit Down Gun??"
* TakingTheBullet: Pierre falls in love with his GirlOfTheWeek in "Fresh Meat for Hitler's Sex Kitchen", only for her to die throwing herself in front of bullets fired by a brainwashed Ilsa. Pierre takes the bullet for Tucker in Season 2, only for him and everyone else to die anyway (they get better).
* TapOnTheHead: Spoofed with Tucker setting an [[SuperWristGadget egg timer on his wrist]] for one hour, then karate chopping a mook, and calmly explaining that the mook will now be unconscious for an hour.
* ThereWasADoor: Justified given the flimsy sets.
* ThrownOutTheAirlock: [[spoiler:How Hitler is defeated in Season 2. It doesn't kill him of course, but then he's swallowed by a giant Ghost Claire.]]
* TimeBomb: Ilsa puts a bomb in a microwave and sets the timer (which comes off in her hand when she has to reset the device).
* TinkleInTheEye: "The power stream!"
* TenMinuteRetirement: In Season 2, Tucker says his spying days are over [[spoiler:and has little interest in avenging the Colonel's death, until Claire is killed.]]
* {{Toku}}: Parodied (naturally) with the Japanese robot soldiers in "Kill-Men of the Rising Sun","The Final Victory" and "Welcome to Hitlerland.".
* ThemeParkVersion: Every single country in the world, but the U.S.S.R. in season two, referred to only as "U.S.S.R.-Land" even in its own signage, takes the cake.
* TheVirus: Sexually transmitted Nazism. The only cure for which is [[spoiler:"impure" Swiss blood]]. Yes, really.
* ThoseWackyNazis: Wacky like you wouldn't believe.
* TrainingMontage: Tucker undergoes one to pick up some ninja skills from Mc Kenzie, after being humiliated by 'Johnny Hitler'.
* TruceZone: The Bahamas, for some reason.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Mengele's mutants attack him once the crystal is destroyed.
* {{Unobtainium}}: Carbonado. [[spoiler:The mineral that makes Hitler's female bodyguards bulletproof and his plan to make an army of them.]]
* UnresolvedSexualTension: Between Ilsa and Jackson. Also between Claire and Tucker, but she's saving herself for marriage and he's too clueless to recognise her romantic hints. And the latter one gets resolved in the first season finale.
* UnusualUserInterface: Ilsa uses her breast up against a door-opening suction cup.
* ValleyGirl: Holly in Season 2.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Happens OnceAnEpisode with [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]] escaping from Danger 5's ATeamFiring via a SuperWindowJump through [[StockFootage the same window every time]]. Our heroes then all look exasperated and never bother to chase him.
* {{Webisode}}s: Used only to start the show off.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Pierre's generic Mediterranean accent. Could be done intentionally, as Pierre has been revealed to have undergone many different aliases over his lifetime.
* WhipItGood: Mind-controlled Ilsa.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Tucker is afraid of water.
* WilliamTelling: 'John Baccarat' (Jackson) while blindfolded shoots holes in cards [[VictoriasSecretCompartment held in a woman's cleavage]].
* WidgetSeries: WWII featuring an eagle-headed military officer. Need we say more?
* WouldHitAGirl: Jackson in "Fresh Meat for Hitler's Sex Kitchen".
-->Get your fascist mouth away from me!
-->You hit a woman!
-->I hit a '''Nazi!'''
** He also barely hesitates to backhand Ilsa [[spoiler: while she is under the control of a mind-control crystal]].
* WorldOfHam: A veritable [[HamToHamCombat World War of Ham]]!
* WouldHurtAChild: After massacring a family, their son comes downstairs and asks if Hitler is Santa. [[BadSanta Hitler agrees, leaving him a gift-wrapped hand grenade with the pin out.]]
* {{Yellowface}}: In "Kill-Men of the Rising Sun", all the Asian roles speaking roles are almost all played by recurring cast members in yellowface and speaking dubbed Japanese. This becomes LeaningOnTheFourthWall as the EvilPlan involves Allied soldiers being turned into Japanese {{Super Soldier}}s by Hirohito's machine. Pierre's love interest of the week is the only actual Asian person there.
* ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld: Used to steal the Eiffel Tower.
* ZombieApocalypse: Hitler starts one after killing Satan. [[SubvertedTrope The zombies are so harmless]] that the only ones that actually kill people are Hitler himself and [[spoiler: Claire's severed head]].
