----
!!Contains examples of:

* AdamWesting: [[WizardsOfWaverlyPlace David Henrie]]. [[LargeHam It was really funny.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Kevin and Joe.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Slightly inverted in that Macy wants a Jonas regardless of who or what he does, and also in that Stella obviously wants Joe (the closest thing to a 'bad boy' of the three - but they've known each other since they were babies, and Joe would never act like that ''around'' or ''to'' Stella.
* AlliterativeName: Macy Misa and real life Joe Jonas
* AlterEgoActing: Inverted in that the brothers are basically playing themselves - but this could also be considered a LighterAndSofter version of AdamWesting.
* AppealToObscurity: In "Forgetting Stella's Birthday".
--> '''Dad:''' The last band to cancel an interview with this guy was the Happy Teens.
--> '''Joe, Nick, and Kevin:''' Who?
--> '''Dad:''' Exactly.
* AscendedFanboy: Macy, who goes from stumbling all over whenever a Jonas shows up, to helping them get rid of a ClingyJealousGirl. [[spoiler: and to top it off she's been PromotedToLoveInterest for Nick]]
* AwesomeMccoolname: Stella Malone.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: Joe and Stella.
* BechdelTest: Passes, surprisingly enough.
* BetaCouple: Nick and Macy
* BookEnds: The beginning of season two opens with the band singing "L.A. Baby", and the final scene is them playing it again, acoustic this time.
* BottleEpisode: The Tale Of The Haunted Firehouse. All of it was filmed inside the firehouse, effects and props were limited to a few skeletons, a handful of tech equipment, and lighting. And not only that, but the majority of it was filmed on the camera Kevin has. Behind the scenes photos showed that it was them holding the handheld camera.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Essentially one of the points of Season One.
* BrotherSisterIncest: Or, well, brother/crossdressing brother incest, and averted, because Nick shoots Kevin's idea of dressing Nick in a wig and a dress to be Joe's "mystery girl". (See WholesomeCrossdresser below.)
* ButtMonkey: The boys all get it in one way or another, but Kevin gets it the most.
--> '''Nick:''' Brothers don't let brothers make fools of themselves. Kevin, I'm sorry I've let you down for so many years.
* CloudCuckooLander: Kevin. Macy has her moments too - but as of ''Jonas L.A.'', her head is on straight.
* ContinuityNod: Two of the games Macy has out to play with Frankie in Jonas L.A. are Word Hole and Dopey Doctor, both of which were played in the first season.
* CursedWithAwesome: Also another drawing points of the show (as it is with HannahMontana, where being a world-famous singing group just sometimes doesn't mesh well with normal life. Four words: 'Taking out the trash'.
* CutShort: Lasted for only two seasons and 34 episodes, tied with ''CoryInTheHouse'' for shortest-run Disney Channel Original Series (until ''SoRandom'' was cancelled in 2012, after only one 26-episode season).
* CuteBruiser: Macy '''OWNS''' this trope.
* DeadpanSnarker: Nick, Joe, and Stella. Even Kevin and Macy have their moments, too.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Kevin and Joe at the Miss Amazing Teen Competition in "Beauty And The Beat". Nick's the only one who's not.
* TheDitz: Van Dyke, Kevin... Joe has his moments.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: TheJonasBrothers song ''Live To Party'' serves as its opening in both seasons.
* DropInCharacter: DZ, Stella's aunt.
* DumbBlonde: Averted with Stella, but played straight with Van Dyke.
* FamilyBusiness: Yes. Quite.
* FemaleGaze: Oh, yeah.
** With SlowMotion and FanService, as said below.
* FirstGirlWins: ''Nobody'' is getting Joe if Stella can help it... and when a guy comes a little close to Stella, Joe seems to get more than a bit annoyed.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Joe
** TheLancer: Kevin
** TheSmartGuy: Nick
** TheBigGuy: Macy
** TheChick: Stella
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In "Karaoke Surprise", while Joe's asking Stella to hang out, Nick's in the background, trying to fix the locker door that Stella ripped off.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In "Forgetting Stella's Birthday"
--->[Hot tea is spilled on Joe]
--->Coler: Where does all of your success come from?
--->Joe: MY PANTS!
--->Coler: Don't you think you're being a little full of yourself?
** And "Home Not Alone"
--->Macy: I almost choked on a Kevin head and nobody even noticed.
** "Karaoke Surpise" after Stella catches Macy and Joe together.
--->Joe: We're doing mental math. It's like jumping jacks for the brain.
--->Stella: Well I just came to drop off these pants to go with the shirts. And now I'll go. Don't want to keep you two from adding your figures together.
** "Direct to Video" opens with a scene of the boys after a crazy night. It is ''very'' obviously a metaphor for a hangover.
---> Joe: After the fourth slice of pizza it's all just a blur.
** The full version of the theme song has the line "I drove her home and then she whispered in my ear 'the party doesn't have to end, we can dance here'", which sounds an awful lot like an invitation for sex.
* GirlOfTheWeek
* GroupieBrigade
* {{Hammerspace}}: Their lockers, for one.
** Joe has reached up, out of the frame, and grabbed a candle. Then put said candle back to grab a clock instead, which he then put back.
** Nick's put an entire keyboard into his locker. Length-wise.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Macy, in a plot seemingly [[RecycledScript recycled]] from an episode of ''Hannah Montana'' in which Kevin can't bring himself to tell her.
* HustlingTheMark: Macy does this in grand style in Season 2, swindling Nick and Kevin in a game of golf.
* ImYourBiggestFan: In ''Jonas L.A.'', Nick writes a song with this title for Macy.
* JerkJock: Once the words ''[='the Van-man's arm-candy'=]'' came out when he was talking to Stella, Van Dyke earned this badge.
* LampshadeHanging: One of the greatest parts of season one.
* LargeHam: Quite. Most noticeable during the "Tale Of The Haunted Firehouse".
* LaughTrack: Surprisingly for Disney, [[AvertedTrope averted]].
* MundaneMadeAwesome: A rock song using [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH9Od8yGZKQ Triangles]]
* NewSeasonNewName: The show was re-labeled ''Jonas L.A.'' as part of a massive re-tooling.
* NoodleImplements: In "Detention":
--> '''Kevin:''' Hi, yes, I'd like to cancel that order I just emailed you about. Yeah, for the twenty goats and a wheelbarrow. But I still need the ducks for Saturday.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: In "Three Musketeers", when they're actually doing it. Stella's the only one who bothers. (And actually does pretty well with it.)
* ObfuscatingStupidity: In season 2, when Macy realizes that Nick and Kevin don't remember she plays sports and plays them well, she does this to hustle them.
* OnceAnEpisode: They sing or play a song at least once an episode, and it's lampshaded in one episode where Kevin takes or picks up a guitar and the lights turn out, and Joe or Nick leans over and says "turn on the lights and put down the guitar, we don't have time for a song".
* OnlySaneMan: Nick.
* PerpetualFrowner: Nick. It's even made fun of in 'Wrong Song'.
--> '''Macy:''' Weird, that guy looks just like Nick, except he's smiling.
** Even as a baby, Nick was this, and it's made fun of by Joe and Kevin when they're watching videos of them as little kids with their parents trying to get Nick to smile.
--> '''Joe:''' Not gonna happen.
--> '''Nick:''' I was waiting until I had all my teeth.
--> '''Joe:''' What's your excuse now?
--> '''Kevin:''' Only kid I know who didn't smile while eating birthday cake.
* PhoneaholicTeenager:Stella. Her attempt to give up texting results in SanitySlippage (including [[VerbalTic ending her sentences]] with "[[MadnessMantra send]]").
* PromotedToLoveInterest: [[spoiler: Macy for Nick]]
* RealityEnsues: Usually once an episode in season one, and it is always [[PlayedForLaughs played for laughs]].
* ReTool: DisneyChannel has announced that the struggling series will be retooled for season 2 by [[http://tvbythenumbers.com/2010/05/05/disney-channel-premieres-jonas-l-a-on-sunday-june-20/50651 turning the show into an on-location series renamed JONAS L.A.]]
** The ReTool ended up resulting in it focusing even more heavily on Joe and less on Nick and Kevin, for the most part. It's even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Nick.
* RomanticFalseLead: Van Dyke, Ben, and Vanessa.
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: Joe gets detention to prove to his friend that he really is a normal guy who doesn't take advantage of being a rock star. Everyone just assumes she's a GirlOfTheWeek which is why he's doing this leading to the trope. It's a subversion in that Joe does this to a guest character who he genuinely isn't interested in.
* ShorterMeansSmarter: The shorter/younger the brother, the smarter. From Kevin being a CloudCuckooLander and Joe being so self-confident he's prone to stupidity to Nick being the most sensible brother and Frankie being incredibly cunning.
* ShoutOut: A whole sub-plot of an episode makes fun of the whole ''CSIMiami'' meme of "witty comment, glasses, YEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!" as well as the ''CSI'' camera angles.
** Joe's movie Forever April is basically ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' but with a supernatural ghost girl rather than a vampire.
** To Corey Hart in season one: "Let's not be those guys who wear their sunglasses at night."
* ShownTheirWork: One RunningGag in season one was Macy always having sports equipment, and even though it rarely got anything more than a quick gag about her nearly killing one of the guys, the equipment she has is always accurate and appropriate for whatever sport she was doing at the time.
* SlowMotion: Without counting the FemaleGaze mentioned above, pretty much '''anytime''' the bros walk down one of the corridors in the school this trope shows up. I wonder if [[FanService the series is targeted towards a female audience.]]
* SorkinRelationshipMoment: Inverted; in 'Karaoke Surprise', Stella shows up at the guys' place to confront Joe and Macy - and then, finds out mot only that they've planned a 'fifteen-year friend-iversary party' for Stella, but that Macy would never do that to her, because she (Macy) has already realized that Joe and Stella have feelings for each other.
* StalkerWithACrush: Macy in the early episodes. She gets better.
--> Stella: "What do you do, just follow them around all day?"
--> Macy: "No! Of course not. Why, do they see me?"
* TakeThat: A very blatant one at LadyGaga's music videos, in "Direct To Video".
* TeenDrama: The 2nd season, JONAS L.A., which is also Disney Channel's attempt to do a Teen Drama for the channel.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Macy and Stella, although Macy is pretty girly herself.
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Averted. In "Frantic Romantic", when they say they need a mystery girl for Joe to get rid of Fiona Skye, Kevin immediately suggests that they put Nick in a wig and a dress. (Nick shoots him down.)
* WillTheyOrWontThey: Joe and Stella
* WishFulfillment: Stella and Macy for the female audience. Stella is a beautiful, fashionable girl who is childhood friends with the brothers and grows up to be a VictoriousChildhoodFriend to Joe. Macy is an Asian-American [[CampRock Demi Lovato]] looking {{Expy}} who is great at every sport and, despite her clumsiness around the boys, quickly becomes an AscendedFanboy and is now one of their close friends [[spoiler: plus Nick's new LoveInterest]]. It's like the writers read MarySue fanfiction.
** In the case of Macy/Nick, that's one part CharacterDevelopment in action (for Macy), and one part WhatYouAreInTheDark (for Nick). Once she got to know them '''as actual people''' instead of just stars, she could relate to them a lot better, and vice versa. That's why it was Nick who started chasing after Macy, and Macy who was about to walk away and not look back when Nick momentarily TookALevelInJerkass.
