->''Nous servons le mal, et nous le servons bien.''

'''''Flander's Company''''' is a French amateur series, airing on the [[http://www.nolife-tv.com/ Nolife]] broadcast and edited for DVD in 2009 by [[http://www.kaze.fr/ Kaze]] (recently acquired by Viz Media).

The title company aims at providing heroes worthy foes, and as such recruits, trains and supports {{Supervillain}}s. The series follows its [[PunchClockVillain employees]] in their daily routine.

The main characters are:
* Hippolyte Kurtzmann, the human resources manager, who spends most of his time receiving wannabe supervillains in his office. Sadistic and short-tempered. [[spoiler:Was known as "Sadoman" when he was an active Villain.]]
* Caleb, the resident BrilliantButLazy GadgeteerGenius who's supposed to run the research department, but spends most of his office hours next to the coffee machine. [[spoiler:Was known as "Pr. Kaos" whan he was an active Villain.]]
* Mr. Armand Trueman, the AffablyEvil CEO, who inherited the company from his father. Hates slackers, and thus Caleb.
* Cindy, Mr. Trueman's niece, a 16-year-old [[CuteBruiser barbarian with an axe]]. Known as "Freya" when she is an active Villain.
* Dr. Parker, a [[AntiVillain friendly]] psychiatrist who runs the psychological assistance department, helping Supervillains with their issues. [[spoiler:Well, when he isn't in Damien mode. Then, he's a psychopatic killer with insane powers that just wants to make YourHeadAsplode.]]
* Carla Burnelle, co-CEO of C.C Corporation, who masters [[ShockAndAwe electric powers]].

The first season is centered around Hippolyte and his job, and features a lot of Application of the Week episodes, but starting with the second, it becomes a lot less repetitive, with genuine story arcs, and other regulars are featured more prominently, even if Hippolyte is still the main character.

Budget is non-existent (at least in the beginning), so there is no set and almost everything is shot during weekends in the offices of French Animation magazine ''[[http://www.animeland.com/ Animeland]]'', hence the anime [=DVDs=] and posters in the background. The show's creator and co-writer, Ruddy Pomarede, also directs, acts (as Caleb), edits and does the visual effects. All this on his free time, which explains the slow production (twenty short episodes a year).

The overall style is very cartoonish, so the fact that everybody overacts does not ruin the show, but participates to the general mood.

Unlike {{Flanderization}} and StupidSexyFlanders, has nothing to do with [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Ned Flanders]].

----
!!''Flander's Company'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AddictionPowered: Caleb got himself some short-range teleportation capabilities after drinking an average of 8-liters of coffee ''a day''. Eventually he drank enough to [[spoiler:teleport a whole building]].
* AmplifierArtifact:
** Caleb's power depending on caffeine consumption, Gringo prepares him an extremely strong blend of KlatchianCoffee when a MassTeleportation is needed.
** In the final battle of season 3, Déborah and Kevin brings a big battery to boost Carla's ShockAndAwe powers against Pyro. Although [[AssShove the plug doesn't go in a comfortable place]]....
* AnthropomorphicPersonification: In the Easter special episode, the Spirit of Easter shows up. [[spoiler:To get shot by Nadège and eaten by the cast.]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
** Trueman is implied to be responsible for [[Franchise/XMen Magneto's return]], the Morlocks Massacre and ''Temptation Island''.
** Three things are a big no-no in the FC universe: messing with the timeline, manufacturing {{Kryptonite|Factor}} and producing albums from [[Music/CelineDion North Canadian]] [[TakeThat divas]].
** This gem from Georges in season 4:
--->'''George:''' We survived Chantal Connasse, those raving mad loons of Aegis, Caleb's experiments, ''Cindy's puberty crisis''!...
* AscendedExtra: The serie is known to use this trope ''a lot'':
** Carla Burnelle was initially introduced as one of Hippolyte's several candidates and a parody of (former) French president's wife Carla Bruni. She was later ascended to the protagonists ArchEnemy [[spoiler:and later again [[HeelFaceTurn became a protagonist herself]].]]
** Similarly, Kevin was first seen as this then ascended to a member of the C.C Corp. [[spoiler:He is one of the only three survivors of the C.C by now.]]
** Igor initially appeared with Countess Von Bathory as a cameo character. He later comes back and becomes Caleb's personnal assistant. Even more in season 4, where he serves as the main scientist due to Caleb missing.
** Though not specifically ascended as character, several actors appeared first as candidates to Hippolyte to later return playing major characters.
* AsideComment:
** In the season 2 finale, Hippolyte's BondOneLiner [[spoiler:after he killed Kevin is addressing the latter.]] However, he then gets back to add "Just kiddin'..." straight at the camera.
** In season 4 episode 4, Caleb looks straight at the camera and says "I can't miss this!" (about Hippolyte tearing a new one to the marketing guys).
* AssShove:
** Sadoman's final move involves [[spoiler:ripping his enemies' heart by the anus. This is how he defeats Kevin.]]
** In the season 3 finale, Déborah and Kevin bring a big battery to supercharge Carla's power. Guess where the plug goes....
** In season 4, when a candidate superhero has for sole power the ability to generate flowers, Hippolyte asks for some with thorns and demonstrates a possible offensive use....
* AstronomicZoom: The intro sequence.
* AtomicFBomb:
** Caleb [[spoiler:after teleporting to Egypt]] at the end of "Unlimited".
** Caleb again in "Angy Junkie", [[spoiler:yelling "BITCH!" at Carla]].
* AttackBackfire: It happens a lot against Sadoman. Any attack that hurts him but fails to kill or incapacite him will just supercharge his pain-based powers and result in a fierce, and often ''lethal'' counterattack.
* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: In the second half of season 4; [[spoiler:more precisely, attack of the Killer [[Literature/TheRing Sadako]]-{{Expy}} [[StringyHairedGhostgirl Stringy-Haired Zombie Girls]] [[MakeMeWannaShout with psycho-ultrasonic powers]] [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie and born from mutated singers]].]]
* AudibleSharpness: Cindy's axe, a lot.
* AnAxeToGrind: Cindy and Gladys' weapons of choice.
* BabiesEverAfter: [[spoiler:Carla in the series finale. Armand doesn't seem to take it well...]]
* BadassFamily: The Truemans.
* BadassNormal: Armand Trueman possesses no power of his own, but he makes up with his intelligence, charisma and crazyness. Too bad it clearly doesn't satisfy him.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: An unusual example since the bad guys ''are'' the protagonists, but in season 4, [[spoiler:it is doubtful Alternates Armand and Cindy would have applied as ''final'' a solution to Alternate George's problem than Hippolyte and Caleb did]].
* BalefulPolymorph: In "PWNED!", Hippolyte gets turned into a potted plant by one of Caleb's experiments. Mr. Trueman is not amused.
* BeamOWar:
** Pyro vs. Sadoman & Damien in season 3.
** Carla vs. Alternate Caleb in season 4.
** Carla vs. Alternate Hippolyte in the series finale.
* BearHug: Gladys to Caleb. Ouch.
* BerserkButton:
** Do. Not. Mess. With. Caleb's coffee. Do not. Really. Bad idea. ''Very'' bad idea. '''Cataclysmic''' idea.
** Also count for Hippolyte:
--->'''Hippolyte:''' It took me months to find a decent roaster in this universe!
** Do not make Cindy wear girly clothes. Just... don't. Or blood will flow.
* BewareTheNiceOnes:
** Don't mess with Parker [[spoiler:when he's in Damien mode.]]
** Georges is an incredibly nice fellow... Just don't mess with him too much, or he will send his [[TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment younger daughter after you]].
* BigBad:
** Carla in season 2.
** Aegis in season 3.
** [[spoiler:[[BigBadEnsemble Damien and Alternate Georges Trueman]] in season 4.]]
* BigEntrance: Carla's return to Flander's in season four's "Forgiven, not Forgotten". Blasting off the doors is just the start.
-->'''Armand:''' Bravo, Carla. Nice comeback. Truely. There was tension, light and sound effects, a rather good sense of timing... no, really, it was nearly perfect. A true model of the genre.
* BigWhat: Armand at the end of season 4 episode "Born Villain", after [[spoiler:Cindy and Alternate Hippolyte side with Damien]].
* BlackComedy: Plenty, along with regular comedy.
* BlasphemousBoast: [[spoiler:Alternate Georges]] in the season 4 finale:
-->'''[[spoiler:Alternate Georges]]:''' Fortunately, unlike God, I haven't inbued my creations with free will.
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: Alternate Cindy does it to a bunch of bank-robbers with a bullet guided by telekinesis.
* BloodIsTheNewBlack: When Hippolyte is [[spoiler:finally allowed to unleash his Sadoman powers in the alternate universe, he ''rips out Zombieber in two''.]] He then prances around proudly covered in blood, [[spoiler:grossing out Alternates Cindy and Armand]].
* BloodyHilarious: Whenever blood is shown, you can be sure it is going to be completely over-the-top.
* BloodyMurder: Emo-Man's superpower is to give himself a paper cut that will result in a devastating high-pressure stream of blood.
* BondOneLiner:
** Hippolyte [[spoiler:as Sadoman after killing Kevin]].
--->'''Hippolyte:''' If you manage to come back after this, kiddo... I promise I'll hire you. [[spoiler:(''beat'') [[AsideComment Just kiddin'...]]]]
** Armand Trueman makes one in the series finale [[spoiler:a ''second'' before the SuperSerum stops acting]].
--->'''Armand:''' [[spoiler:Damien, you're fired.]]
* BornLucky: Gontran Fortuna, the supervillain wannabe in episode "Fortuna", has supernatural levels of luck as a superpower.
* BriefAccentImitation: In season 4, Carla once "quotes" Igor by imitating his FangThpeak and speech pattern.
* BulletTime: In "Motus", with thrown tops.
* ButtMonkey:
** Gilbert the accountant.
** Maxence in seasons 2 and 3.
** Kevin in seasons 3 and 4.
* CallingYourAttacks: Averted most of the time, with some notable exceptions in the season 3 finale by Hippolyte, Caleb and Hitomi. Some more in season 4, mostly from Hippolyte and Cindy.
* CaptainErsatz: Trucidator is Warduke from ''WebVideo/FranceFive'' -- same actor and costume, just with a new name and now a PunchClockVillain rather than an alien invader.
* CardCarryingVillain: The whole organization.
* CaffeineBulletTime: Caleb's powers -- [[spoiler:short-range time and space warping]] -- awakened as a side effect of coffee abuse.
* CameraAbuse: Blood splashing on the camera while Hippolyte "interviews" a candidate.
* CatUpATree: In season 4 episode 11, this is Hippolyte's first outdoor mission in the alternate universe. He's not happy about it, especially since the "whirlwind of teeth and claws" variation happened.
* CelibateHero: Or Celibate Villainess in this case -- Cindy clearly has no interest in dating anybody; she rejects Trucidator's advances, and expresses disgust when her father suggests she might find somebody one day. Granted, considering the kind of relationship her parents have, her reluctance is understandable.
* CerebusSyndrome: Season 1 was mostly a Gag-of-the-Week series with no specific plot; season 2 had an actual plot and got more serious toward the end; finally, seasons 3 and 4 mostly have a plot, and are significantly darker than the previous ones.
* ChekhovsGunman:
** Carla (TheHeavy of season 2) is introduced as a one-episode character in Season One.
** Kevin and especially [[spoiler:Lose-man]] also qualify.
* ChewingTheScenery: Kurtzmann and Trueman, especially when in full supervillain mode.
* {{Chibi}}: The end credits of the Season 2 finale.
* ChirpingCrickets: In "La Rédaction", following the teacher firing on the ceiling, the classtroom ruckus is replaced by this.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Nico, Carla's husband, appears with her in their first episode. She appears again without him and he's never mentionned again. According to WordOfGod, Nico wasn't her real husband but a secret agent, and came as a cover for that scouting mission.
* {{Cliffhanger}}: Season 3 episode 19 ends with a big one.
* CombatSadomasochist: Hippolyte [[spoiler:as Sadoman...]]
* CombinationAttack:
** In season 2, Cindy and Gladys uses a [[spoiler:TornadoMove against Maxence and the henchmen]] with amazing effect.
** In season 3, Cindy and Gladys initiate it again against [[spoiler:Liam, but it doesn't work]].
** Later, Sadoman and Pr. Kaos uses one of their own against [[spoiler:Mello. It works perfectly, but there are unwanted side effects]].
* CompanionCube: Gilbert the accountant talks to his calculator (calling it "Chantal").
* CompositeCharacter: Sue Helen Richards is a composite of the [[Franchise/FantasticFour Invisible Woman]] and a sitcom nympho (the name Sue Helen coming directly from ''Series/{{Dallas}}'').
* CrazyEnoughToWork: How Hippolyte saw Caleb's plan to use Lose-man against Carla in the season 2 finale.
* CreatorProvincialism: Curiously enough, as it employs mainly American super-villains, (and with names such as "Trueman"), the Flander's company is explicitely shown to be set in France (including with a few {{Astronomic Zoom}}s). Notably, in season 4, when {{exp|y}}ies of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdupont Superdupont]] (a [[TheSeventies '70s]] parody of a French superhero) and Nightrunner (a current official hero in the Franchise/{{Batman}} franchise) wonder if the company apply discount prices for compatriots.
* CrossCastRole:
** Gladys Trueman is played by a male actor.
** Hitomi Kurtzmann, of course, has the same actor as her half-brother Hippolyte.

* {{Crossover}}: With ''Noob'' and ''Le Visiteur du Futur'', two series of the same network.
* CutTheJuice: How Cindy stops the machine that made everybody's powers go mad, instead of smashing it like Hippolyte expected.
* {{Cyborg}}: Staive
* DadaAd: One was made InUniverse as [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpidmt_flander-s-company-s4-extra-schmurtz_fun an extra video]] during the fourth season (as a commercial from [[spoiler:the alternate universe]]).
* DaddysLittleVillain: Cindy (she's this toward her uncle, though, not her father).
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Hippolyte and Carla in the season 2 finale. See also JustBetweenYouAndMe below.
* ADayInTheLimelight:
** The first episode of season 2, "Holidays", features Dr. Parker as the only regular (beyond the intro).
** The special episode "Super fan de!" follows Hitomi Kurtzmann for a full day.
** Season 3 episode "La Rédaction" is about Gladys writing a school report, and thus we're seeing the Flander's Company through her eyes.
* DeadGuyPuppet: Okay, Hippolyte wasn't dead, but he was suffering from a serious breakdown in episode "Cas de conscience". So, what do Caleb and Cindy do? Use him as a puppet to keep engaging lame candidates.
* DeathGlare:
** A pretty scary one from [[spoiler:Silver]] to [[spoiler:[[JokeCharacter Hitomi]]]] during the season 3 finale.
** It's almost [[spoiler:Damien's]] signature move! Seriously, he gives one to almost everyone he fight...
** Hippolyte isn't shy about them either, usually when the latest idiot candidate is grating on his nerves.
* DeerInTheHeadlights: Hippolyte is described to be this way by the TV crew interviewing him in the alternate universe. He has a good reason, however, [[spoiler:considering said crew is constitued of all the counterparts of Aegis, the season 3's enemies]].
* DefaceOfTheMoon:
** Thanks to Caleb's Nuclear Gun and Trucidator falling for Cindy.
** And in the season 3 finale, [[spoiler:where Liam explodes after being teleported there]].
* DeflectorShield: There's one around the machine pertubating superpowers in "Unlimited", to Hippolyte's frustration.
* DestinationDefenestration:
** Maxence putting Cindy in a girly dress results in his fall from the top of the Flander's building. Luckily [[CrossesTheLineTwice an old lady cushioned his landing]].
** Kevin, using his groove powers on Alternate Hippolyte, forces him through a window.
* DopeSlap: Cindy gives one to Caleb in season 3 for being one-upped by Nadège.
* DoubleTake: Alternate Georges Trueman at the sight of a candidate rejected by Hippolyte [[spoiler:with flowers in the fundament]].
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler:Maxence]], shot by Trueman in the season 3 finale. They were on the same team... Kinda. [[spoiler:Well, you must remember that Maxence was a member of the C.C Corp., and their cooperation was tied by their fear of Aegis. Once [[GameBreaker Caleb's potion]] was ready, they didn't have any reason NOT to kill him. Plus, he wanted the potion...]]
* EasterEgg: ''Real eggs'', laid by cast members who've been ''turned into rabbits'', in an Easter special.
* EatsBabies: The vampiric poodles, from episode "Real Bad Dog". Though only one or two a week, according to Igor.
* {{Emo}}: Emo-Man, duh.
* EnemyMime: One of the candidates for a SuperVillain job is a mime.
* EnemyMine: On season 3, C.C corporation has to work with Flander's Company to defeat Aegis. Trueman even quotes: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." [[spoiler:He'll be the one that acts as an UngratefulBastard in the end, sending the C.C corp. survivors to North Pole.]]

* ExactWords: When Georges accepts that Trucidator can date his daugter... he didn't specify which one.
* ExoticEntree: The Power Party 2009 has dishes such as baby seal canapés or panda pâté.
* EyeAmWatchingYou: Armand makes the gesture toward Dr. Shredder in season 4, noting that he's suspiciously always back for the season's climax.
* EyeBeams: One of the supervillain candidates has this power. Problem, he's blind (and cross-eyed).
* FacePalm: A few...
** Hippolyte will sometimes hold the bridge of his nose while interviewing candidates.
** The most beautiful is certainly Hippolyte and Cindy having a simultaneous one [[spoiler:at the end of season 3 episode 16, when Trueman agrees to a cooperation with the ex-C.C Corp members.]]
** The Brotherhood of Shadows' members have several despite their short screen time:
*** Lex Luthor, when Dr. Claw accidentally shows his true face.
*** Double-facepalm for Magneto when Dr. Claw and Dr. Doom start arguing.
*** Then Dr. Claw facepalming (with his gloved hand) at Doom's extremely lame joke.
* FacePalmOfDoom: Carla to Gladys, on her return to Flander's in season 4.
* {{Fainting}}:
** Hippolyte, in the [[spoiler:alternate universe, after being overwhelmed by all the differences]].
** Kevin at the sight of [[spoiler:Gladys' severed arm]].
* FakeOutFadeOut: The season 4 episode "Karma Tsunami" ends with [[spoiler:the surprise return of Jean-Luc Shredder]]. The ending credits start, but Armand yells for this to stop, demanding an explanation.
* FakingAmnesia: Both Hippolyte and Caleb in the alternate universe. It's Hippolyte's idea, at first because he thinks the true story would be too unbelievable. Afterward, [[spoiler:they don't want their status of supervillains to come into light in a society full of superheroes]].
* FallenHero:
** [[Manga/SaintSeiya Seiya]] applies for a job at Flander's in season 1.
** Recycle-Man in season 3. Hearing the virtues of neutrality from ComicBook/{{Spawn}} convinced him to fully become a villain.
* FantasySequence: Gilbert fantasizing about Nadège falling for him, and them having a baby calculator.
* FemmeFatale: Andromalia combines this with HornyDevil, being a succubus.

** Hippolyte Kurtzmann -- TheDragon
** Caleb -- TheEvilGenius

--->'''Georges:''' CINDY '''PRISCILLA''' TRUEMAN, GO AND GET ME MY RIFLE!
** The second one was during [[spoiler:the final episode of season 4, in which he scolds his mind-controlled daughter in a (successful) attempt to snap her out of it.]]
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In season 4 episode 16, while Cindy and Alternate Caleb are having a conversation, Carla is trying to avoid both Armand and Alternate Hippolyte.
* FunnyBruceLeeNoises: [[spoiler:Superpowered Armand]] in the series finale, undoubtedly a ''Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar'' parody.
* GaleForceSound: Hippolyte yelling. Not a superpower, but if he's riled enough...
* GenreSavvy: All villains are perfectly aware that they shouldn't mess with the timeline, as the Dr. Doom expy points out:
-->'''Dr. Fataloose:''' ''Of course,'' we must not play with the space-time continuum! Everyboy know that, it always monstrously mess up things...
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan:
** Hippolyte gives a few good slaps to Caleb to help him "focus" in season 4 episode 2.
** Then in the season 4 finale, [[spoiler:Georges slaps Cindy to break Damien's MindControl]].
* TheGhost: Gladys and Cindy's mother.
* AGlassInTheHand: Parodied with Caleb crushing his coffee cup in the series finale. Though considering how much Caleb loves coffee, it shows well how upset he his.
* GoryDiscretionShot:
** Cindy only uses her axe offscreen.
** Averted when Damien uses his powers against someone's head.
* GratuitousEnglish: A lot of the episode titles. Except one (which is GratuitousJapanese), any episode title of the fourth season is this.
* GratuitousGerman: Hitomi Kurtzmann. Also used by Hippolyte during his (Anti-)HeroicBSOD against his sister.
* GratuitousJapanese: The infamous [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xpidmt_flander-s-company-s4-extra-schmurtz_fun "Schmurtz!"]] ad and the title episode "Karma Tsunami", both from the fourth season.
* GroinAttack:
** One of Cindy's "demonstrations" against a Mook.
** Carla's farewell to [[spoiler:Alternate Hippolyte]] in the season 4 finale.

* FunnyAfro:
** Déborah during Hitomi's clip in season 2.
** Gladys, after Carla shocks her point-blank in season 4.
* HeliumSpeech: Mr. Trueman in the musical episode.
* HeroicBSOD: Well, more like Villainous BSOD, but Hippolyte sure has a big one at the sight of [[spoiler:his half-sister Hitomi Kurtzmann]]. Lovingly described in details by Dr. Parker.
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Clearly Recycle-Man before his FaceHeelTurn. He was violently beating up innocent people just for not recycling properly.
* HideousHangoverCure: Caleb prepares one for Armand, directly referencing ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartIII''. It's very, very efficient.
* HighPressureEmotion: In "PWNED!", Hippolyte has steam shooting from his ears just before suffering a BalefulPolymorph.
* HoldUpYourScore: In "Angry Junkie", while the employees are forced to do some gym, Nadège, Jocelyn and Carla scores them (giving notes of 2, 4 and ''π'', respectively).

* ImagineSpotting: In season 4 episode 18, "Born Villain", when [[spoiler:Damien reveals how he manipulated Nadège, the latter suddenly interrupts and protests that she might have been mind-controled, but she'd never "stroked his shell" as just seen in the unreliable flashback]].
* InstantCosplaySurprise: Inflicted on the Flander's employees by Maxence and Déborah in episode "Bad Taste".
* InsultBackfire: In the season 4 finale:
** Hippolyte to [[spoiler:Alternate George, after the reveal he's the BigBad]]:
--->'''Hippolyte:''' It's Evil. Congratulations, little girl: you've just met your first supervillain.\\
'''[[spoiler:Alternate George]]:''' Oh, coming from such a specialist as yourself, I'll take this as a compliment, thanks.

'''Damien:''' (''[[PsychoticSmirk grinning]]'') Flatteries will get you nowhere...
* {{Intangibility}}: Nadège Pruneau

-->'''Caleb:''' Beware! I've got a new-generation remote control, and I won't hesitate to use it!
* JawDrop: A collective one when [[spoiler:Cindy give a farewell kiss to Alternate Caleb]] at the end of the season 4 finale.
* JokeCharacter:
** Nearly every villain who wants to join the Flander's Company may qualify.
** And then we have Hitomi, who is the embodiment of this trope.
** Kevin takes this trope and ''runs with it''.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: Averted twice in the same episode.
** First, wannabe-villain Kevin starts monologuing; Hippolyte hits him and yells, "Rule number 3 of a long-living villain: NO FUCKING MONOLOGUE!"
** Later, Carla:
--->'''Carla:''' Now I could talk for a long time, in order to let you have time to find something to save your butts, but I'll go straight to the part where I explode you one after the other!
* KamehameHadoken:
** Master Kim, to test the Mooks' training.
** Über-Caleb's [[spoiler:final move against Damien]].
* {{Kayfabe}}: The relationship heroes-villains in the Flander's Company's universe is likened to ProfessionalWrestling during a conversation between Cindy and Alternate Caleb.
* KlatchianCoffee: Caleb's personal blend. Alternate Caleb has the misfortune of drinking one cup because of Gringo, and ends up incapacited for three days.
* KneelBeforeZod: [[spoiler:Damien-in-Carla's-body starts such a monologue, but is interrupted.]]
* KnightOfCerebus:
** The C.C Corporation, to a minor extent. When they show up, the serie starts having an actual plot and go from pure comedy to action comedy.
** Aegis, on the other hand, plays this trope pretty much straight.
* KnuckleCracking: Lots of characters have this bad habit, most notably Cindy.
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: A lot of them, but only as minor characters. Usually their name is an untranslatable pun about a French slang variation of the original name. There were cameos of:
** [[Manga/SaintSeiya Seiya]]
** [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario and Luigi]]
** Franchise/HarryPotter
** ComicBook/CaptainAmerica
** [[Literature/{{Discworld}} Elizabeth Bathory]]
** [[Anime/DragonBallZ Vegeta]]
** Franchise/{{Naruto}}, Sakura and Sasuke
** SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom
** SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}
** SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor
** [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]]
** [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards and Susan Storm]]
** Franchise/GreenLantern
** [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]]
** Franchise/SpiderMan
** Black Cat
** Franchise/{{Batman}}
** ComicBook/{{V|ForVendetta}}
** Superdupont
** Nightrunner
* LensFlare:
** Often used in the exterior shots of the Flander's building.
** And with the outer space shots of the Brotherhood of Shadows' satelite.
* LotusPosition: In a season 1 episode, Dr. Parker tries to teach relaxation to Hippolyte and Caleb with this position.
* LoudOfWar / ThePowerOfRock: One of [[spoiler:Kevin's]] powers, which he uses against Hippolyte. [[spoiler:It backfires spectacularly.]]
* MagicWand:
** Caleb presents a few of his invention to [[Franchise/HarryPotter Henri Potier]]. The "Franchise/{{Terminator}}" one proves to be quite the blast.
** Also used by Alternate Hippolyte the Cheesemancer.
* ManBitesMan: Hippolyte bites [[spoiler:Reed Richards' hand to make him let go of his remote-control gizmo]].
* TheManInTheMirrorTalksBack: In the musical episode, Dr. Parker's reflection in the mirror turns into [[spoiler:Damien]].
* MassiveMultiplayerCrossover: Considering all the Lawyer-Friendly Cameos and some occasional references in dialogs, ''Flander's Company'' is set in an universe which mixes the Creator/{{Marvel|Comics}}, Creator/{{DC|Comics}}, ''Franchise/MenInBlack'', ''Manga/SaintSeiya'', ''Franchise/HarryPotter'', ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'', ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget'' and {{Mario}} franchises. There are some cross-over with ''Damned'', ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'' and ''WebVideo/LeVisiteurDuFutur'' (three other French webseries), too.
* MassTeleportation:
** In the season 2 finale, a machine created by Caleb is used to divide the enemies and turn a big brawl into a series of separate duels.
** In season 3, Caleb's power is amplified by another invention (and a good amount of KlatchianCoffee) to displace the whole Flander's building.
* MediumShiftGag:
** Sadoman's "final moves" are shown as shadowed short animations (also a form of GoryDiscretionShot).
--->'''Sadoman:''' DOUBLE COSMIC FIST!!
** The history of the "1983 Holocaust" in the alternate universe is in comic-book style with limited animation.
** The backstory of the Choristes' universe is also animated, but in a much darker style.
* MistakenForGay: The vilain Trucidator ("Slayator") shortly suffers this from Dr. Parker. Trucidator came to Dr. Parker because he was bullied because he is black, but before the explanation was finished, Parker first thought Trucidator was victim of homophobia. Note that Trucidator's general appearance (hairy, bared chest and iron chains) makes this mistake understandable.
* {{Mooks}}:
** Cindy's role is to train them. They even have a training camp.
** The C.C Corp henchmen in season 2.
** In season 4, the Choristes.
* MoreThanMindControl: How [[spoiler:Damien turns Cindy and Alternate Caleb to his side with his psychic powers: he targets those who are already discontent with the return to normal after the alternate-universe mess]].

** A parody of "Womanizer" by Music/BritneySpears -- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDge67DoIek "Kochoneizer" by Hitomi Kurtzmann]].
* MustHaveCaffeine:
** Caleb, who spends almost his entire office time next to the coffee machine. [[spoiler:Having it removed prompts his resignation, as hoped by C.C Corporation -- what they hadn't planned was the going berserk part]]. It may be because of [[spoiler:his caffeine-induced teleport powers]]. Anyway, that does NOT explain [[spoiler:his worship for Creator/GeorgeClooney, who is more-or-less his GOD.[[note]]In France, George Clooney plays in an series of ads for the Nespresso coffee machine, which is the model used by Caleb. Thus his cult for the actor.[[/note]]]]
** To a slightly lesser extent, Hippolyte.
* MyBelovedSmother: Gontran Fortuna, to compensate his [[BornLucky unbelievable luck]], has a very possessive mother. And [[{{Pun}} unfortunately]], she's luckier than him.

* NoblewomansLaugh: Cindy in an ImagineSpot from Gladys.
* NoDialogueEpisode: "Motus", except for the prologue and TheStinger.

* NoseBleed: Hippolyte has one interviewing Andromalia at the Japan Expo.
* NotHyperbole: In season 4, when Gautier says that Caleb "had done the work of four people," he adds "Literally!" -- [[spoiler:and the camera pans out to show that Caleb has duplicated himself for the additional brain power]].
* NotMeThisTime: [[spoiler:Pr. Jean-Luc Shredder]] says this about the season 4 plot.
* NotWearingTights:
** Subverted with Aegis. They wear costumes, but no masks.
** Nobody in the company has a costume to begin with. Then in season 2 (Cindy, Hippolyte, Damien, Caleb) and 3 (Hitomi, Carla, Truman) more and more characters decide to get (or to wear again) a super costume for fights. Handwaved by Carla at the end of season 3 :
--->'''Carla:''' I will not fight in a Chanel suit!\\
'''Cindy:''' [[ContinuityNod Didn't stop you when you fought us last year!]]
* NuclearNasty: The Murlok in the Japan Expo episode -- at least, that is Hippolyte's theory. [[spoiler:It doesn't stop Cindy from turning it into sushi, however.]]
* OhCrap:
** A literal one said in the Season 3 Finale by [[spoiler:Mello who is exploded in mid-air by Hippolyte and Caleb's final attack, "Combo Gothic Tits on Fire!"]]
** Earlier in the same episode, [[spoiler:Mello, stuck in the ground with only his head surfacing, has a OhCrap moment when Pyro clearly says that she doesn't give a damn about him, as she's ready to unleash a miniature sun on the protagonists and Mello nearby.]]
* OneDialogueTwoConversations: When Caleb is asking Mr. Trueman if he can engage an assistant (who ends up being Igor), the boss seems to be responding positively, but he is in fact talking on the phone (with an earpiece hidden by his hair) and has no idea what Caleb wanted.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness:
** Armand has such a reaction in "PWNED!"
--->'''Caleb:''' What? I said something I shouldn't have?\\
'''Mr. Trueman:''' No... but my brain crashed while trying to assimilate the fact that you've been working...
** In the season 4 finale, [[spoiler:when Gladys shows up possessed by Damien]].
--->'''Carla:''' She... she's just articulated two ''grammatically correct sentences''!\\
'''Cindy:''' Who is this ''monster''?!
* OperationBlank: In season 3, the name of the plan to [[spoiler:teleport the whole Flander's building]]? "Operation: [[Creator/GeorgeClooney Clooney]]"
* OverlyNervousFlopSweat: {{Parodied|Trope}} with villain wannabe "Transpire-Man" ("Sweaty-Man"). He does indeed sweat a lot when nervous... meaning he can weaponize it by producing a blast of water from his armpits, strong enough to propel an opponent through a wall.
* PillarOfLight: In season 1 episode "Terroriste !", an accidental discharge of Caleb's Nuclear Gun bursts through 12 stairs and into the sky, finally blowing up a satellite.
* PinballProjectile: Used by Hippolyte with [[spoiler:his HandBlast to take Alternate Cindy by surprise and disarm her]].

* PunchedAcrossTheRoom:
** Liam to Carla in "Fashion Victim", through a wall.
** Über-Caleb to Carla in "Forgiven, Not Forgotten", through several walls.
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler:Nadège]], at the end of season 3, where she is caught by a [[spoiler:black hole created by Mello]]. WordOfGod mentions that she's on a trip to Japan, hence her nonavailability as an actress for the next season, scheduled in late 2010. [[spoiler:TheBusCameBack in season 4.]]
* PyroManiac: Pyro...
* RagingStiffie: Andromalia inflicts this on Dr. Parker. Hippolyte resists, but only by thinking about [[ThinkUnsexyThoughts lots of dead puppies]].
* RandomTeleportation: Caleb suffers from one in "Unlimited" when his power goes awry. [[spoiler:He ends up in Egypt.]]
* ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: Caleb builds a "Millstone Detector" to alleviate a bit Hippolyte's work. That's when Maxence and Déborah shows up; the detector quite naturally explodes.
* RecordNeedleScratch: A frequent comedic effect.
** The music in "Motus", when everybody try for the last donut.
** In "Memo to Human Resources", when Alternate Hippolyte is confronted to the first candidate: Shitfly-Man.
** In "This Is How We Do", when Gauthier interrupts Caleb playing with his labcoat.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge:

* SarcasticClapping: Armand, complimenting Carla for her spectacular comeback in season 4.
* TheScream:
** A big one by [[spoiler:Silver]] when [[spoiler:Hitomi "milked" her]] in the season 3 finale. The character, who until then was shown to be TheStoic, proceeds to literally [[NoHoldsBarredBeatDown obliterate her]].
** Followed, in the same episode, by [[spoiler:Liam's when he discovers his girlfriend, Pyro, has burnt down to ashes]].
* SelfDuplication: Caleb's power of duplication went from "I can duplicate myself a little" to Naruto-esque proportions. Which leads to one of the most ridiculous fights in the show, with Caleb fighting against "Narugros".
* SeriesContinuityError: In the series finale, there's view of [[spoiler:the energy blast that destroyed Damien rising above the atmosphere. Cool shot, except the stream is clearly coming from France, while the last battle is supposed to happen in Pennsylvania, at Reed Richards' manor, as with the beginning of season 4]].
* ShareTheMalePain: The Mooks after one of Cindy's "demonstrations".
* ShockAndAwe: Carla Burnelle's superpower.
* ShoutOut: Too many to list them all, but notably:
** The opening theme tune is from the movie ''Film/{{Brazil}}''.
** Staive is a parody of Steve Austin from ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan''.
** The logo and sequence revealing [[spoiler:the project that created Damien]] is inspired by ''Series/{{Lost}}''.
** "Motus", one of the first episode to feature action scenes, does so with music from ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles''.

** Hippolyte: [[Film/LethalWeapon "I'm too old for this shit!"]]
** Caleb is often seen using a tool looking suspiciously like a [[Series/DoctorWho sonic screwdriver]].
** During season 4, Caleb and Hippolyte [[spoiler:ends up in an alternate reality, in which Superman's spaceship has landed in North Korea instead of America. It's easy to see here a ShoutOut to ''ComicBook/SupermanRedSon'', a [[Franchise/TheDCU DC Universe]] {{Elseworld}} story in which Superman's spaceship landed in the Soviet Union.]]
** Carla's speech [[spoiler:when taken over by Damien's mind]] is straight out of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies, when Galadriel is tempted by the power of the One Ring.
** Alternate Armand, while moving a fishbowl by magic, sings the same song as Merlin in ''Disney/TheSwordInTheStone''.
--->'''Cindy:''' He's forced to sing that when casting a spell?\\
'''Alternate Caleb:''' No... but it makes him so happy...
** The high-inquisition A.I. is called [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]].
** Igor: "In my opinion... [[Series/{{House}} it'sh a lupus]]."
* ShovelStrike:
** How [[spoiler:Damien welcomes back Carla]] at Flander's. And then Hippolyte does the same with [[spoiler:Kevin]].

* SiblingTeam:
** Cindy and Gladys.
** Armand and George (though they're not exactly equals).
* SlippedTheRopes: Parker, twice, in the episode "Holidays".
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Cindy is the only female character in the company before the introduction of Gladys. Subverted with the C.C corporation which has more female than male characters. And only Carla and Nadège are competent in the team. Subverted again with AEGIS.
* SomeKindOfForceField: Said by Nadège in "Unlimited". The force field protecting Caleb's invention is indeed only visible when struck.
* TheSpartanWay: This is how the {{Mook}}s are trained, according to the episode when Cindy runs a mooks training camp.
* SpecialEditionTitle: Season 3 episodes 7, 10 and 11 have the usual music and style of opening, except the title isn't "Flander's Company" but "C.C Corporation" instead, and the cast is from the latter society, since the episodes focus on them.
* SpiderSense: Parodied in season 2 episode 9, with Hippolyte's instinct for [[TheMillstone millstones]] flaring up (with a typical {{anime}} effect) as Déborah and Maxence come near. As for Caleb's Millstone Detector, [[ReadingsBlewUpTheScale it explodes]].
* SpitTake:
** Caleb, after drinking a coffee with what he thought was sugar, [[spoiler:but is in fact vampire ashes]].
** Hippolyte, with the first return of Kevin in Season 2, right in Déborah's face. She calls hims a "spitting llama" afterward.
* SplitScreen:
** To visualize both alternate universes at the same time in season 4.
** Also abused in the fight between Alternate Caleb and Cindy.
* SplitScreenPhoneCall: In season 4 episode 17, between the various superheroes.
* SpoilerOpening: [[spoiler:Carla being [[PromotionToOpeningTitles promoted to the opening title]] in season 3 hints of the ensuing EnemyMine, and then her HeelFaceTurn]].
* StaticStunGun:
** Caleb once tries tasering Gladys... [[NoSell to absolutely no effect]].
** Alternate Georges Trueman shocks Hippolyte to stop him from agressing Alternate Kevin.
* SternTeacher: Parodied with Gladys' teacher in "La Rédaction", who demands silence while firing a handgun.
* StrippedToTheBone: [[spoiler:Pyro]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:Parker]] has one.
* SuperpoweredMooks:
** A few of the henchmen enrolled by C.C Corp have superpowers. They still don't slow the protagonists much.
** The Choristes too, having a dangerous [[MakeMeWannaShout screaming attack]].
* SuperSerum: Caleb creates one by combining the DNA of the Supers at hand, thanks to the help of [[spoiler:Dr. Shredder's researches]] as well as [[spoiler:[[WebVideo/LeVisiteurDuFutur the Visitor from the Future]]]]. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:as Armand Trueman soon finds out, its effect is very limited in time]].
* SuperWindowJump: Hippolyte has a very gratuitous one in season 3 episode 12.
-->'''Hippolyte:''' Lesson number 12 of the supervillain: always indulges in a charismatic entrance.
* SuperZeroes: A lot of the candidates, even those with potentially strong powers, don't find grace in Hippolyte's eyes because they're way too uncool to make good supervillains. More of them are engaged nonetheless in season 3 because of the dearth of Flander's employees.
** First and foremost, Lose-Man.
** But especially Kevin.
** Staive; Recycle-Man; Sweaty-Man; Emo-Man...
* SurveillanceAsThePlotDemands: It takes some time for the satelites to align, but the Alternate Flander's Company is sure well-equiped.
* TakeOurWordForIt: Not everything is seen on-screen; several events are just described by the characters, to ease up the special effects, or just for comedic effect.
** The Christmas episode during season 2. We hear a lot about the children, but actually never see them.
** In "Unlimited", we don't see Carla at all, but Nadège mentions that she had to put both hands in the toilet to ground her uncontrolable electric discharges.
* TakeThat:
** President Sarkozy has been amongst Flander's villains.
** Season 4 episode 17:
--->'''Batman:''' They hack me off, all of them, by thinking I'm the IMF boss! (''pause'') Do I look like I'd go to a Sofitel?
** The whole Choristes backstory is a big TakeThat to several pop singers.
* TearsOfBlood: In the season 3 finale, [[spoiler:Hippolyte at the sight of Kevin's latest costume]].
* TeleportersAndTransporters:
** One part of Caleb's superpowers is to make short-range jumps (unless his power is amplified) thanks to his overcomsuption of caffeine.
** Teleportation is the way to join the Power Party on the Red Witch's satellite.
* TemptingFate: Lost in the North Pole, Carla can't help but state that the situation can't get any worse. [[spoiler:Cue polar bear.]]
* TerribleIntervieweesMontage:
** Season 1 is entirely this (except for [[Manga/SaintSeiya Seiya's]] interview).
** Including the [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6455m_nolifetv-flander-s-company-special_fun#.Uc1d6pybC8A convention special]], where only a [[HornyDevils succubus]] makes the cut.
** In season 2, the episode [[spoiler:where Hippolyte resign]].
** The one in season 4 [[spoiler:where the two Hippolytes unsuccessfully try to handle each other's job]].
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Heavily subverted, on top of the fact that Dr. Parker is very good at his job. [[spoiler:Too bad there's no therapist for ''him''.]]
* ThinkUnsexyThoughts: When asked how he's resisting [[HornyDevils Andromalia's]] influence, Hippolyte answers that he's thinking about dead puppies.
* ThisCannotBe: [[spoiler:Damien-in-Gladys'-body in the series finale, about to be obliterated by Über-Caleb]].
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Damien delivers one to [[spoiler:Pyro]] just before she's annihilated by Carla: "Hasta la vista, ''bitch''!"
* TooDumbToLive:
** A lots of the supervillain candidates that Hippolyte "interviews".
** Maxence and Déborah, especially during Cindy's "makeover".
--->'''Hippolyte:''' (''disbelievingly'') But... they have the preservation instinct of a ''herd of lemmings''!
** Literally in the case of [[spoiler:Staive and Lose-Man]] in season 4.
* TooKinkyToTorture:
** Sadoman, of course.
** Alternate Carla turns out to be this [[spoiler:when Hippolyte attempts it on her.]]
* TooMuchInformation: [[spoiler:Nadège's]] report about the world where the Choristes come from is very much this for Alternates Caleb and Hippolyte, as well as Carla. Doesn't bother [[NightmareFetishist Igor]], though.
* TorchesAndPitchforks: Vampire Countess Von Bathory, except it was from a angry mob, after she stole babies to feed her vampire puppies.
* TornadoMove:
** Cindy and Gladys can perform one as a combination attack.
** Alternate Armand can create one on his own thanks to his SuperSpeed.
* TrailOfBreadCrumbs: Nadège using chips to lure Gladys toward [[spoiler:Damien's brain]].
* TrapDoor: Hippolyte has one in the "Super Pouvoir" music video to get rid quickly of pesky candidates. Not seen in the series proper, though.
* TraumaticHaircut: Hippolyte inflicts this on [[spoiler:his half-sister Hitomi]] in season 2 episode "German Ubber Fantasy".
* {{Troperiffic}}: No, ya think? Seriously, the episodes are short, but the trope concentration of each of them is impressive.
* TroubledFetalPosition: Alternate Hippolyte, on learning that the regular universe Flander's Company manages supervillains [[spoiler:and not superheroes]].
* TryToFitThatOnABusinessCard: Said by Igor about his mistress, Countess Lacrimosa Noctis Genocida Von Bathory.
* ATwinkleInTheSky: [[spoiler:Done to Damien-in-Gladys'-Body by Superpowered Armand]] in the series finale.
* TwinkleSmile: Alternate Hippolyte in the ad opening season 4 episode 5.
* TwitchyEye: Hippolyte's eyebrow starts twitching about 30 seconds after meeting Déborah and Maxence.
* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Starting with episode 18, the season 4 finale follows the storylines in the two universes leading to climactic, simultaneous battles.
* TwoScenesOneDialogue:
** The beginning of season 4 episode "Memo to Human Resources", with scenes in the two separate universes, where Armand and Alternate George are having a complimentary conversation.
** Also, the lengthy exposition at the start of episode 18, "Born Villain", switch from one universe to the other, but the dialogue is still in continuity as [[ThePlan the same plan]] is initiated on both sides.
* UncomfortableElevatorMoment: In season 2 episode 18. When they hear a fart, Caleb accuses the unconscious Dr. Parker.
* TheUndead: Flander's Company's secretaries.
* TheUnSmile: When Alternate Kevin asks Hippolyte to make a "happy face", he gets this.
* VillainProtagonist: The whole cast. Parker and [[spoiler:Georges, to an extent]] may be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]]. The former works for and with villains, but he's a friendly and naïve man. Most of the time...
* VomitDiscretionShot:
** Caleb (on Hippolyte's shoes) during Igor's interview in "Yes Master!"
** In "We Are Family", a depressive Armand in Cindy's face -- any visual being cut short by the end credits.
--->'''Georges:''' Hey, for once he did eat his breakfast.\\
'''Cindy:''' (''disgusted'') DADDY!
** Carla, on learning that [[spoiler:her counterpart and Hippolyte are lovers in the alternate universe]].
** Carla as well as Alternates Caleb and Hippolyte, after hearing [[spoiler:the origin story of the Choristes from Nadège]].
* WeirdTradeUnion:
** The Flander's Company kinda works this way for supervillains.
** There's also "Les Larbins Patchwork" agency for evil genius assistants like Igor.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Aegis. They kills dozens of supervillains during 3 months, despite the fact that they were abiding by contracts and thus, not a danger to the general population.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway:
** Most of the time, the candidates Hippolyte receives have the most useless and ridiculous superpowers the writers could imagine.
*** In an episode of the third season, Hippolyte '''must''' engage a man saying that he can cause a deluge by dancing wearing a duck rubber ring and a tutu on a techno/space opera remix of ''the Lake of Swans''. Seriously. (Poor Hippolyte lost it...)
** The alternate universe has its own lame applicants too. One seems to think he can become a superhero with the sole power of creating flower bouquets. Hippolyte suggests he should create roses, with lots of thorns, and [[AssShove demonstrates how to use them offensively]]...
* WhereItAllBegan: The main action of season 4, at least for the regular Flander's Company, begins and end at the manor of the "[[Franchise/FantasticFour Quatre Fantastoques]]".
* WorldOfHam: Played for laugh.
* WouldHitAGirl: Being villains, none of the male characters have any qualms about this. Most notably, Armand during the "Moskau" song, shoving away Hitomi, headbutting Carla and swinging at Déborah from behind.
* YourHeadAsplode:
** [[spoiler:Damien's]] signature move.
** Happens to Cindy during her (short) accounting stage.
* YouShallNotPass: Maxence with Aegis. Lampshaded with GratuitousEnglish.
