!This show provides examples of...
* AffectionateParody: Of ''Film/TheHangover''
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Ginger
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Zeke and Luther often will interrupt the show to explain, interject, or something else. It's also functions as a ConfessionCam.
* BrotherChuck: Olivia completely disappeared following "Adventure Boy" and no mention has been made at all of her since.
* BrokenAesop: In "Cup Stacking". So, if my best friend shows talent in something that doesn't interest me, I should find his friends and scare them into abandoning my friend so he'll come crawling back?
* CaliforniaDoubling: For California itself. The show repeatedly points out its setting in Gilroy, CA (a town at the southern end of the [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco Bay Area]]), but it's very obviously filmed in [=SoCal=].
* CatchPhrase: Ginger repeatedly calls Zeke and Luther "pit-sniffers". In return, Zeke usually calls Ginger "mini-munch."
** Ginger also tends to say "Oh yeah, baby!" when things are going her way.
** Also, Kojo's "Watch out!" accompanied by a butt-slap.
* {{Crossover}}:
** Zeke and Luther once appeared in a ''Series/PeterPunk'' episode.
** Also, Dale Davis appeared in ''Series/KickinIt''.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Lisa gets distracted by watching Zeke drink water, which causes her and Ginger to lose an academic competition against [[BookDumb Zeke]] and [[TheDitz Luther]].
* DemotedToExtra: Ginger in Season 3 due to Ryan Newman leaving the show.
* EnemyMine: Zeke and Ginger are forced into this to defeat Jumpsuit at one point.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Jumpsuit Johnson, Stinky Cast.
* {{Expy}}: It's pretty obvious that Ginger is the [[PhilOfTheFuture Pim Diffy]] of the present day.
* FanDisservice: Oswald's shorts are really '''really''' short [[{{Squick}} (shudder)]].
* FreeRangeChildren: And how!
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Luther was sagging in one episode. And yes, they actually referred to the act as sagging.
** An entire episode was based on the plot of ''Film/TheHangover.''
** In one episode, a guy talked about stuffing bananas in his Wedge-o-Matic.
** In "Adventure Boy," when Kojo is trying to teach Zeke girl-grabbing tips, one of the hooking lines he uses is, "Your lips look kinda cold. Let me warm 'em up for you." While he could be talking about kissing, he could also be talking about sex. [[DontExplainTheJoke (Lips are also a name for... never mind.)]]
* TheGhost: Zeke's parents are mentioned but noticeably absent, even when the plot clearly calls for them.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Zeke and Luther, obviously.
* JerkAss: Most of characters show their jerkass side. Luther seems to be the exception in this trope (sometimes).
* KidCom
* KillerRobot: In "I, Skatebot"
* LadykillerInLove: Kojo, in "Sludge"
* LaughTrack: Mercifully averted (unlike [[Series/TheSuiteLifeofZackandCody several]] [[Series/PairOfKings other]] [[Series/ImInTheBand shows]] on its network).
* LawfulStupid: Deputy Dingle
* NameAndName
* {{Sexophone}}: Lisa tries to invoke this by getting a friend to play the saxophone to help her seduce Zeke.
* ShoutOut: To anyone who has watched ''Film/TheShining'', watch the Gingernator.
** Also, the B Plot of "Luther Leads" started with Ginger finding [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory a golden golf ball inside a donut]] and thus being named heir to the donut shop. She was eventually refused because she couldn't stand training or donuts and intended to tear the place down and erect an office building.
* SitcomArchNemesis: The Plunk Brothers
* SkateHeavenIsAPlaceOnEarth: A rare non-gaming example.
* StalkerWithACrush: Lisa Grubner, Zeke's 12-and-a-half-year-old stalker.
** Stinky Cast is this to Ginger, but not to the same extreme.
* StoryArc: A good chunk of season 3 revolves around the boys skate careers picking up for real.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Kojo, to an insane degree.
* TooDumbToLive: Luther, at times. Such as when he thinks a hospital bedpan is a ''guacamole bowl and asks if he can have one.''
* TotallyRadical: Advertisements hype its "skater lingo."
* UnusualEuphemism: Oh, my god. Watch the show.
* WorldOfHam: Arguably the best thing about the show.
