''Lab Rats'' is a ScienceFiction KidCom that airs on DisneyXD.

When 14 year old Leo (Tyrel Jackson Williams) moves in with his new step dad, Donald Davenport (Hal Sparks), he snoops around Donald's mansion and discovers Adam (Spencer Boldman), Bree (Kelli Berglund), and Chase (Billy Unger) -- three bionic siblings (each equipped with hi-tech apps) living in a lab beneath the house. An unlikely friendship develops as he sneaks them out to school for their first taste of freedom while they help him to become the most popular kid in school. But when their bionic glitches go off, things get chaotic very quickly!

Ever since ''Lab Rats'' premiered, it has been Disney XD's top-rated live-action series.

----
!!Lab Rats exhibits these tropes:
* AbsenteeActor: Mr. Davenport is absent from many episodes, such as ''Death Spiral Smackdown'', ''Air Leo'' and ''Spike's Got Talent''. However, he is sometimes mentioned in these episodes because of his inventions.
* AbusiveParent: Donald shows this a bit "The Lab Rats Strike Back", But the real winner is his brother. [[spoiler: Douglas attempted to turn his biological kids into weapons]] and didn't seem at all sad when he revealed that [[spoiler: Marcus' life expectancy (as an android) is 16]].
** Donald was this to Adam, Bree and Chase before Leo met them. But only unintentionally, he didn't exactly treat them badly, he just didn't let them go out because he was afraid (not without reason) they wouldn't be able to control their powers or emotions. Also, as he puts it, he was so busy training their superhuman side he completely forgot their human side.
* AIIsACrapshoot: Surprisingly averted. Eddy is a pain in the butt but for the most part glitch-free ([[TheMole or is he, really?]]), while the AI in Davenport's car in ''Speed Trapped'' only went awry because of Marcus.
** Robo Perry in "Perry 2.0", in her default mode, which is search and destroy.
* AlliterativeName: Donald Davenport. Also, the high school mascot, Dewey Dingo.
* AlphabeticalThemeNaming: '''A'''dam, '''B'''ree, '''C'''hase, '''D'''onald and '''E'''ddie.
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: Toyed with in the webisode series ''Who Is Marcus?''
* [[spoiler: AllYourPowersCombined: Marcus has the all the Lab Rats' abilities and more.]]
* [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents Amazingly Embarrassing Parent]]: Tasha plays this in "Trucked Out".
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Janelle.
* {{Angrish}}: Donald in the pilot, when he goes to retrieve the kids. [[SarcasmMode "So - how was school?]] GET IN THE HELICOPTER!"
* [[spoiler: ApocalypticLog: Leo finds out that Donald has made one for the Rats that will activate in event of a '''real''' emergency.]]
* AnimalEyeSpy: played with the mechanical flies.
* AppliedPhlebotinum: Some of Davenport's inventions have explanations that involve something like this, but throwing in scientific terms to make them sound plausible.
* AMinorKidroduction: There is a flashback in the pilot of a much younger Adam, Bree and Chase, all showcasing their powers.
* [[spoiler:ArchnemesisDad: The Lab Rats' ''real'' father, Douglas]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In ''Avalanche'', Chase's line mocking [[spoiler: Douglas.]]
--> '''Chase:''' So, what’s on your agenda for the day? Build some bombs, take over a tiny country, steal money from old ladies?
* [[spoiler: ArtificialHuman: Marcus is an android.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Principal Perry.
* {{Badass}}: Chase in his commando mode, better known as Spike.
* BadassBookworm: Chase.

* BadassFamily
* BadBadActing: Leo and Adam in "Leo's Jam".
* BarrierWarrior: Chase.
* BeachEpisode: Downplayed in ''Dude, Where's My Lab?'' Most of the episode takes place off the beach, and they all wear light summer clothes.
* BerserkButton: In ''Crush, Chop and Burn'', the Lab Rats can get very upset if they are called robots.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Douglas, he is one sick puppy.
* BigBad: Principal Perry, sort of, as she is the most recurring antagonist.
** Douglas Davenport has taken over this position in Season Two (as of ''Bionic Showdown''), reducing Principal Perry to being TheHeavy.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Adam. It's never explicitly stated, but when they are in danger Adam does try to shield Bree or Chase. He also unlocks his hidden ability when Leo is in danger.
* BizarreAndImprobableGolfGame: Spoofed in "Hole In One". While Principal Perry's golf course is an example of this, Chase uses his telekinesis to move the ball to the hole.
* BlackAndNerdy: Leo.
* BlandNameProduct: ePods and ePhones.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler: Douglas manages to install an app into Adam, Bree, and Chase that lets him do this to them in the Season 3 premiere,]] leading to...
** [[spoiler: IKnowYoureInThereSomewhereFight: Leo eventually manages to get through to Chase, who musters enough HeroicWillpower to break free of Douglas's control and subsequently override his control of Adam and Bree.]]
* BumblingDad: Donald.
* ButtMonkey: Chase is going through this.
* CainAndAbel: Douglas and Donald.
* CallBack: The exoskeleton from ''Exoskeleton Vs. Grandma'', in ''Bionic Showdown''.
* CandidCameraPrank: Davenport's slide show showcasing his security cameras catching the kids misbehavior, in ''Drone Alone''. [[InvertedTrope Completely inverted]] when Eddy refuses to tell what Marcus does in ''Concert In A Can'', and [[WhatThehellHero says absolutely nothing about his activities]] in ''Mission:Space'', ''Who Is Marcus?'' and ''Speed Trapped''.
** Last one is arguably averted since Davenport shutdown Eddie for awhile due to him messing around with Tasha on hers and Donald Anniversary.
* CasualDangerDialogue: Many in "Bionic Showdown", such as Adam speaking with "Jewish accent", and Bree's "YOLO", all while they were trapped in Douglas' house. Leo and Eddy count too, as they argue about things like the red cart Leo is using when they set off to rescue their family.
* CatchPhrase: Davenport's: "BOOM!" He even argues about it [[SharedFamilyQuirks with Douglas.]]
** Also, Adam's "Saved it!"
* [[spoiler:ChildSoldiers: Douglas was the one responsible for giving bionics to the Lab Rats, for the purpose of training them as [[SuperSoldier living weapons for sale to the highest bidder]]. Cue Donald taking the kids and putting them in hiding before the series]]
* ChristmasEpisode: ''Twas the Mission Before Christmas''
* CliffHanger: Season 2 finale, "No Going Back", ends with [[spoiler:the Lab Rats running away from home for fear, Leo and Donald stuck in the elevator, Donald without any money, and the lab completely destroyed]].
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Adam. He keeps random strands of hair he uses to make fake mustaches in his locker.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: From ''Bionic Birthday Fail'':
-->'''Adam:''' Woohoo! Leo's having a surprise party!
-->'''Chase:''' Adam, if Leo was having a surprise party, don't you think we'd be invited?
-->'''Adam:''' Yeah, you're right! Who is Tasha thinking she is not inviting us?
** From ''Leo vs. Evil'', some time after Tasha had been teleported.
-->'''Chase:''' (''seeing the teleported chair distorted by the return function'') This is awful.
-->'''Adam:''' I know. I love that chair, it did some of my best sitting in it.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: what the Principal puts the siblings through in order to attempt to get out of detention early, in ''Missin' The Mission'.
* CrazyCatLady: Principal Perry.
* CutawayGag: A few ones:
** In ''Commando App'', showing the yesteryear's Christmas party of the Lab Rats, when Spike appeared.
** In ''Trucked Out'', there is a scene with Adam after he had an accident with his new bicycle.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Season 2 has become this.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Leo, in ''Parallel Universe''.
* DeadpanSnarker: Chase and Leo.
** Everyone has their moments.
* [[spoiler:DisneyDeath: Leo in ''Back From The Future''.]]
** [[spoiler:This could also be Marcus' fate in ''Bionic Showdown''.]]
* TheDitz: Adam, but not ALL the time.
* DumbassHasAPoint: from Davenport's point-of-view, Leo's suggestions that save the day in ''Missin' The Mission''.
** Adam also saves Tasha's life in ''Leo Vs. Evil'' by having her catch a bus home, rather than have her go through the malfunctioning teleporter.
* TheCastShowOff: Billy Unger often gets to show off his martial arts skills.
** Kelli Berglund gets to show some of her dance moves in the school dance episode.
** Tyrel Jackson Williams isn't a slouch in the dance department, either.
* DumbMuscle: Adam.
* DynamicEntry: Leo's arrival in ''Bionic Showdown'', when he [[spoiler: shows up in the combat exoskeleton that he wore in ''Exoskeleton Vs. Grandma'']].
* EggSitting: The subplot of "Spy Fly", where Adam and Chase must take care of baby dolls, [[HilarityEnsues but then they try to destroy each other's]].
* EmbarrassingFirstName[=/=]EmbarrassingMiddleName: The (female) principal's name is Terry Cherry Perry.
* ExplosiveOverclocking: in ''Bionic Showdown'', Adam discovers the ability to absorb energy from the surrounding area and supercharge his plasma grenades into a single blast that turns him into a walking WaveMotionGun with no ill effects.
* {{Expy}}: Donald has similarities to [[IronMan Tony Stark]].
** Billy Unger even cited this comparison to explain the series in more than one interview before the show was released.
* {{EMP}}: Happened in one ep.
* EmptyPilesOfClothing: When Adam shrinks, his clothes are left normal size in a heap.
* EpicFail: Eddy as a security system. He's either absolutely worthless (look at the way he's allowed Marcus to roam about inside the Davenport home, and there's no excuse for him not immediately informing Davenport about Marcus firing his eye lasers at Leo and threatening to expose them all) - or ''[[TheMole he's been working against Davenport all along.]]''
** ... You do realize he was probably still shut down due to the events of last night when the eyebeams happen right?
* EyeBeams: Adam has this power whenever he gets really angry. Marcus also shows that he has this power in ''Speed trapped'' - [[OhCrap and he has no problem using it on people.]]
* FiveManBand
** TheHero[=/=]TheSmartGuy: Chase
** TheLancer[=/=]TheBigGuy: Adam
** TheChick: Bree
** TagAlongKid: Leo
** TheMentor: Donald
*** ''Alternatively''
*** TheHero: Leo
*** TheLancer: Chase
*** TheBigGuy: Adam
*** TheChick: Bree
*** TheMentor: Donald
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Coincidentally or not, Donald telling Rose that Adam, Bree and Chase are his brother's children that he adopted after their father fell in a volcano to hide that they are his bionic project is almost completely true, as evidenced in "Bionic Showdown".
* FragileSpeedster: Bree.
* FunTShirt: Leo is always seen wearing these. [AvertedTrope Averted] is season three, when Leo starts dressing more to impress (the girls).
* FutureMeScaresMe: Averted with Future!Leo and played with Future!Donald (Mostly there scared because Future!Donald REALLY let himself go in the weight department after the lab rats died in a averted future.)
* GenkiGirl: Bree, [[FragileSpeedster naturally]].
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Most aren't particularly obvious, but they do slip in lines like Principal Perry's "Get your hands off my junk!!" from ''Hole in One.'' (She was talking about literal trash in the scene.)
** There's also the less humorous fact that the protagonists are pretty young, but Marcus deliberately [[spoiler:tries to kill Leo]] on more than one occasion.
** Leo's nickname for Donald is Big D.
* GoodCounterpart: Principal Perry has one in a parallel universe.
* GratuitousSpanish: In "Concert in a Can", as Donald mentions he is a multilingual millionaire, Marcus responds with "ooh, ''gracias''", followed by a "''de nada''" by Donald.
* HappilyMarried: Donald and Tasha.
* HarmlessFreezing
* HideYourPregnancy: Angel Parker, who plays Tasha, was pregnant with her second child towards the end of shooting the first season.
* HiddenDepths: While not possessing ObfuscatingStupidity by any means, Adam is occasionally far more clever than anyone gives him credit for.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: When Leo ends up in a fix, it's usually by this method. Played horrifyingly straight in ''Speed Trapped'', when Marcus tries to eliminate him because Leo takes his job as 'the enforcer' seriously.
* HotScoop: Tasha again.
* IdiosyncraticWipes: the show has four of them:
** The scene ends in a computer screen and switches to another one.
** The door with the iconic bionic emblem closes and opens showing another scene.
** Bree runs through the screen leaving a trail of blue hexes that disappear right after.
** Chase lands on the floor causing blue hexes to appear and disappear.
* IdiotBall: Davenport, when it comes to Marcus.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Bree and Adam occasionally dip into this.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Leo shows signs of being this.
* INeverSaidItWasPoison: How Leo realizes Marcus hijacked the car in "Speed Trapped."
--> '''Marcus:''' Leo, I am so happy you're home safe! I can't believe you almost ended up at the bottom of the ocean!
--> '''Leo:''' Wait... how did you know where the car was set to go?
--> '''Marcus:''' I... Didn't...?
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: Adam gets shrunk down to 6 inches.
* IncrediblyLamePun: From "Smart and Smarter,"
--> '''Leo:''' I'm sorry. I just got a little carried away... with you carrying me away. (Beat) Oh come on, it's funny!
* InsufferableGenius: Chase and Donald all the way.
* InsultBackfire: In response to Chase's ArsonMurderAndJaywalking insult above.
--> '''Chase:''' So, what’s on your agenda for the day? Build some bombs, take over a tiny country, steal money from old ladies?
-->[[spoiler:'''Douglas:''']] Well, not in that order.
* ItAmusedMe: At the end of "Parallel Universe":
--> '''Bree:''' Oh, that cured my boredom.
* IThoughtYouWereDead: Donald said this when he learns his brother, Douglas, is alive. Douglas said he made Donald, the police, and their mother think he was dead.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Parallel universe's Bree in "Parallel Universe":
--> '''Bree:''' It's pronounced "Br-AY"! Like "breath" without the "-thh"!
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Leo
* JustSmileAndNod: In "Can I Borrow the Helicopter?", when Adam is talking about his horse, Donald tells Tasha he isn't getting it, but he smiles and nods till it's over.
* KentBrockmanNews: Tasha's job mostly consists of stories of babies that look like ex-presidents and stuff. The runaway train was her first real assignment according to her.
* KillerRobot: Marcus sics one on Leo when he discover Marcus and Douglas evil lair, in ''Leo vs. Evil''.
* KnightofCerebus: Like most Disney shows, the majority of the villains are reasonably harmless and normally portrayed as light hearted. Marcus on the other hand, once he drops his nice guy act, is presented as Sociopathic bully, that realistically tries to murder Leo.
** It gets worse when they introduce his creator, Douglas Davenport. Although still seemingly light hearted, he is a coldblooded MadScientist who's committed a list of crimes over a mile long, including experimenting on Children, violating medical ethics, kidnapping, brainwashing and is also perfectly willing to commit outright murder when it suits him. When he appears the show takes a much darker tone.
*** Which then gets takes UpToEleven when Douglas' benefactor Krane (who has also been given bionics) shows up, and demonstrates that he has zero consideration for the well-being or lives of anyone who gets in the way of his plans.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: When Bree and Adam make their own cheer routine in ''Air Leo'', they explain the use of their abilities as "special effects".
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Douglas]] does this to [[spoiler:the Rats]] in ''Bionic Showdown''. [[DefiedTrope Defied]] when [[spoiler:the Rats]] tell [[spoiler:Donald]] that they feel that way about him.
* MacGuffin: The Painting in ''Hole in One.''
* MadScientist: Donald is this by way of RuleOfFunny. The real holder for this trope is Douglas.
* MalignedMixedMarriage: Subverted.
* ManChild: Donald again. The man's got a bedroom full of video games and action figures.
** UpToEleven in the latest ep with mind erasing thing.
* MirrorUniverse: In the episode ''Parallel Universe''. Things are very much opposite; to begin with, Leo in that world has the bionics of the Lab Rats along with abilities he's seen before, and Adam Bree and Chase are {{Muggles}} not related to Donald, but also EvilCounterparts in the sense that they are antagonistic to Leo after finding out he is bionic. Personality wise, Donald is an insecure, inventor-in-training, his mom is a {{Jerkass}} mogul who abuses Donald, Adam, Bree and Chase have opposite personalities, with Adam being philosophical, Bree being an even bigger brat than her main counterpart, and Chase being a {{Jerk Jock}} instead of a snarky nerd. In addition, Principal Perry is good, kind and altruistic, even helping Leo escape the government agents and the Lab Rats' alternate counterparts.
* MissionControl: Leo's assigned position on the team as of ''Missin' The Mission''.
* MissionControlIsOffItsMeds: Eddy. ''Full stop.''
* MoneyFetish: Chase seems to have develop this in "Chore Wars".
* MundaneSolution: Adam calls Tasha on her cell phone and tells her to get home by public transport instead of waiting for the dangerous and unstable teleporter.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: In "The Haunting of Mission Creek High", school bully Trent steals Leo's clothes and leaves him in nothing but a towel. And then he eventually takes the towel, too (offscreen, of course). Instinctively everyone comes to see poor naked Leo.
* [[spoiler:NestedStoryReveal: "Principal from Another Planet", which at the end of the episode is revealed to be just a movie Leo made for a sci-fi film festival.]]
* NonUniformUniform: Each Lab Rat has a different mission suit design. Donald also has one.
* NoodleIncident: Perry has dozens.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Despite his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} status ([[JustifiedTrope or, perhaps, because of it]]), Adam has started out Season Two in this corner. He's a long way from GeniusBruiser status, but he's not nearly as firmly rooted in the TooDumbToLive section as [[SiblingYinYang Chase and Bree's behavior towards him would seem.]]
* OminousMessageFromTheFuture: Future!Leo traveling back in time to warn the present Leo Adam, Bree and Chase are going to die during their next mission in "Back From the Future".
* OnceMoreWithVolume: In "Bionic Showdown":
-->'''Chase:''' Well, maybe ''your'' orders aren't always right.
-->'''Donald:''' Excuse me?
-->'''Adam:''' He said maybe your orders aren't...
-->'''Donald:''' I HEARD IT!!
* OnlySaneMan: Tasha is shaping up to be this.
* PersonalityPowers: The kids' powers actually come across like this.
** Adam's [[DumbMuscle strong but not too bright]].
** [[GenkiGirl Bree is a highly unstable teenage girl]] with SuperSpeed, and [[AppointmentTelevision for God's sake, let her watch]] [[RealityTV her reality-TV programs]]. [[GRatedDrug It's the only thing]] [[CrowningMomentOfFunny that keeps her from unleashing all of]] '''[[AirplaneArms THAT]]''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny on her brothers!]]
** Chase is [[InsufferableGenius not only smart, but a smarty-pants]].
** Even Leo gets in on this. In ''Parallel Universe'', when he got powers. he was [[LightningCanDoAnything able to break things without meaning to]], but also able to [[FlashStep get out]] [[TeleportersAndTransporters of trouble]]... [[RandomTeleportation mostly]].
* PowerIncontinence: The Lab Rats have to be careful or else there powers could glitch.
* PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep: Appears to be a side-effect of boys' bionic powers in overdrive, as it happens when Chase becomes [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Spike]] and when Adam discovers his hidden bionic ability of a supercharged energy blast (in ''Bionic Showdown'').
** When Marcus is being evil (and using his powers,) he tends to do a deeper voice than when he's pretending to be a friend to the Lab Rats.
* PowerTrio
** BeautyBrainsAndBrawn: Bree, Chase and Adam.
** FreudianTrio: Bree is TheMcCoy, Chase is TheSpock, and Adam is TheKirk.
** TwoGuysAndAGirl
* ReactiveContinuousScream: In "Crush, Chop and Burn", when the Lab Rats first meet Leo. First, they scream, then Leo, then them all together, and then Leo again.
* RunningGag: The table at the dining room constantly being broken (but replaced for the next scene or episode) is sort of one. Leo even asks why they always buy a glass table.
* SadistTeacher: Principal Perry.
--> '''Bree:''' [[LampshadeHanging How are you still employed?!]]
* SarcasticClapping: Adam does this in "Chip Switch".
* SecretKeeper: Leo and Tasha. Principal Perry joins in season 3. However, several of Davenport's inventions aren't secret.
* ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing: When Adam shrinks, his clothes do not (forcing him to hide in his shoe to cover himself). Chase has to find him doll clothes to wear.
* ShouldntWeBeInSchoolRightNow: Almost always averted. Many episodes also have Mission Creek High as the main setting, mainly because of Principal Perry.
** It's interesting to notice that in "Missin' the Mission" the Lab Rats get detention for missing school a lot because they are on mission.
* SitcomArchNemesis: Trent and Principal Perry with Leo.
* SkywardScream: Leo screaming "WHYYYY?!" learning that Janelle's mom is going to take her at his house but he will not be able to unfreeze her in time.
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil: First we have Principal Perry, a ruthless, tyrant principal who [[ForTheEvulz enjoys making students grovel at her feet]]. Later, there's Marcus, an AxCrazy bionic [[spoiler:android]] who has it out for Leo the most, that he later blackmails him. Finally, there's Douglas Davenport, Donald's evil brother who wanted to use his creations as SuperSoldiers.
* SpandexLatexOrLeather: The Rats and their new mission uniforms, as of ''Bionic Showdown''.
* SpeaksInBinary: Chase and Scott, for fun.
* SpiritualSuccessor: The cast makes it sound like this for [[WizardsOfWaverlyPlace Wizards of Waverly Place.]] Not only do they share the same director and some crew, but both are about families with special abilities that need to keep a secret while attempting to live normal lives and going on adventures. Technically speaking, they both also rely heavily on special effects as well as occasional fight scenes.
* StatusQuoIsGod: The show most times averts this, like Principal Perry knowing about the Lab Rats bionics as of "No Going Back" and Bree and Chase working at Tech Town as of season 3 episode "Zip It".
* SuperIntelligence: Chase.
* SuperStrength: Adam.
* SmartBall: Adam gets this sometimes. One example is when he decided to call Tasha to take a bus before the others could use the teleporter for a return trip (which would have ended [[BodyHorror REALLY badly.]])
* {{Tagline}}: "Every family has its glitches."
* TheBully: Trent. This is why Principal Perry favors him over other students.
* TheTeamWannabe: Leo.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Douglas isn't going to hurt Leo, because he promised to let Marcus have that privilege.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Bree.
* TitleDrop: In the first episode, Chase says "We're like human lab rats!" then cut to Adam running on a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny giant hamster wheel.]]
* [[TookALevelInBadass Took A Level In BadButt]]: In ''Parallel Universe'', Leo showed some actual fighting skills against the [[GovernmentConspiracy MIBs]] that showed up to capture him - [[TheDogShotFirst as well as being willing to fire on his attackers]] '''first.'''
** Leo's takedown of a berserk Eddy in Night of the Living Virus with a laser reflector. Note that he has no bionics and is a scrawny kid, against an A.I. that has helped to train the young bionic heroes.
* VersusTitle: Parodied with "Exoskeleton vs. Grandma", and played straight with "Leo vs. Evil".
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: Adam, Bree and Chase.
** As of early Season Two, Leo fits this as well.
* VillainExitStageLeft: During his base destruction, Douglas made his escape.
* VolleyingInsults: TheTag of "Commando App" and "Spike's Got Talent" between Spike and Principal Perry.
* WeAreAsMayflies: Bionic abilities in androids leads to them burning out very quickly. According to Douglas, [[spoiler:Marcus had very little time left.]]
* WentToTheGreatXInTheSky: In "Drone Alone":
-->'''Donald:''' So, if you're watching this, I must have gone to that big hard drive in the sky.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Leo's comment about how Eddy failed as a security system (he allowed Marcus to enter the lab, not to mention [[IdiotBall the spy camera that Eddy still hasn't detected]], or Marcus' activities in ''Who Is Marcus?'') hasn't been addressed by Davenport yet. This MIGHT be averted due to the reveal of who Marcus' dad is, afterall, who better to know where security leaks and how to hide stuff better than Davenport's brother. No excuse on the ''Who is Marcus?'' fiasco, though.
** We haven't had any mention of Adam's plasma grenades or flame vision since "Air Leo", either. though the Plasma Grenade might be connected to Adam's new KamehameHadoken.
*** The flame vision may have just been an early version of his heat vision. Chase even calls it as such.
** Nor have we seen Bree's ability to stick to the ceiling since "Mission Invisible."
* WhamEpisode:
** ''Mission Space'': [[spoiler: Marcus is indeed a trouble-maker and is spying on the Davenports along with someone else.]]
** ''Speed Trapped'': [[spoiler: Marcus is revealed to be a bionic. Leo finds this out but has to keep quiet lest Marcus attack his family.]]
** ''Bionic Showdown'': [[spoiler: The appearance of Douglas Davenport, Donald's brother who reveals he's the real creator of Adam, Bree and Chase as well as Marcus. After a fight, Marcus is apparently crushed by debris but Douglas manages to escape.]]
** ''Avalanche'': [[spoiler: Douglas reappears again and tries to sway Chase to his side. He fails and is frozen in an ice block and promptly sent to jail.]]
** Season 2 finale ''No Going Back'' [[spoiler: Perry finds out about the kids being bionic which prompts them to run away from home when they misunderstand an FBI agent investigating their home. He wasn't, he was looking into a case for Donald, whose bank account was hacked, leaving him with nothing. After Donald and Leo find out Adam, Bree and Chase are gone, they set out to find them. The two then realize that Douglas was behind the hacking, having been broken free from his ice prison by a mysterious bionic person. After Douglas reveals himself to be the mastermind, he blows up the lab, leaving Donald and Leo with no means to track the trio.]]
** Season 3 opening, ''Sink or Swim'' [[spoiler: We meet the masked man, Victor Crane, who is revealed to be Douglas's benefactor and a much more adult cybernetically enhance human who's shown to much more of a threat then Douglas and Marcus have been.]]
* WhiteMaskOfDoom: The "Masked Man", first appearing in "No Going Back".
* WomenAreWiser: Tasha may not be more intelligent, but she is more down to earth than her husband.
** Averted, in that although Bree is occasionally the voice of reason, she is normally portrayed as irresponsible and prone to overreacting to minor things. Then she is still a teenager; a BIONIC teenager to be precise.
* XCalledTheyWantTheirYBack: a few times.
** From "Commando App":
-->'''Spike:''' (to Principal Perry) Hey, Ireland called, they want their leprechaun back!
** From "Death Spiral Smackdown":
-->'''Chase:''' (to Bree) "Well, the Tin Man called, he wants his neck back."
* YouDidntAsk: In "Crush, Chop and Burn" part 2:
-->'''Eddy:''' Oh, he [Leo] left. Something about a recycling center, neglectful parents, life and death, blah-blah-blah...
-->'''Donald:''' Why don't you tell us any of this?!
-->'''Eddy:''' You didn't ask.
