->''"On every planet in the galaxy you'll find the Flux, a powerful, magical energy. Here on Akillian we call it the Breath. The Flux is so strong that it had to be banned, except in Galactik Football, the most spectacular sport in the universe. But fifteen years ago a mysterious explosion rocked Akillian, swept the Breath away and destroyed our chances in the Galactik Football Cup. Fifteen years without a decent team and nothing but snow and ice. Now, hope lives again. Young, new players to revive the Breath of Akillian. Our fate is in their hands.''
-->-- Aarch, opening credits

''Galactik (sic) Football'', is a French produced animated series that mixes conventional 2D animation with 3D motion-capture. Think ''Film/TheMightyDucks'' in space, but not THAT ''WesternAnimation/TheMightyDucks'' in space.

The story centres around a group of misfit teenagers recruited by veteran footballer Aarch, to play in the Galactik Football Cup. His new team, The Snow Kids, must face off against a host of magically endowed alien teams and more teen angst then you can shake a stick at if they are to have any hope of advancing in the competition.

Notable because while the team is often surrounded by intergalactic conspiracy, corporate evil and the occasional off-screen genocide, the the Snow Kids are usually mostly unaware of the grand space opera brewing around them and are more concerned with team squabbles and perfecting their dribbling then they are with the evil conspiracy out to get them.

A third season premiered in Summer 2010.

!!This Show Contains Examples Of:
* TheAce: Warren and the Lightnings were this at the beginning of the series. Then season 2 gives us Luur, who is so good that he can go up against all the Snow Kids on his own and score a goal without breaking a sweat. The Snow Kids themselves are rapidly becoming this, seeing as they've won the Galactik Football Cup an unprecedented three times in a row.

* BigNo: Multiple
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: The trio of Tia, Mei and Yuki in season 2.

* BreakTheHaughty: Sinedd
* BrokenAesop: Veteran player Warren stresses to Rocket that the Snow Kids have to win as a team... shortly before pulling off a performance that's like that {{Bugs Bunny}} cartoon where Bugs is in a game of baseball and playing ''all'' the positions.

* DownToTheLastPlay
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: For most of season 2 D'Jok has a recurring dream of falling through a hole in the Genesis Stadium pitch. [[spoiler: This is, of course, exactly what happens in the season finale.]]
* DynamicCharacter D'jok, Mei, Sinedd, Rocket
* DysfunctionJunction: The Snow Kids are pretty bad, but they can't compare with the previous Akillian team.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: Looking at you, Sinedd.
* EveryYearTheyFizzleOut: Oh for the days of the great Wambeezan dynasty Zoran old pal!!
* {{Fake Irish}}: Subverted by the fact quite a lot of actors on the show have clear accents, particularly Tia and Yuki.

* InASingleBound: Flux allows players to jump to ridiculous heights.
* IneffectualLoner: Sinedd in season 2. In Season 1 he's mostly a JerkAss. Also subverted, due to the fact that [[spoiler:Rocket]] is a very effectual loner.
* [[LoveAtFirstSight Infatuation At First Sight]]: Micro-Ice with Mei and [[SatelliteLoveInterest Zoelin]] in season one, and [[spoiler:Yuki]] in Season two. Justified by the fact he's very young and clueless.
* TheIngenue: Keira.
* InformedAbility: Mei's skills as a defender in the first season. She has less defensive presence than Tia. And despite this, we are supposed to think Micro-Ice is the weakest link on the team? Not buying that.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Sinedd and D'Jok
* JumpedAtTheCall: D'Jok
* LawOfAlienNames: Subverted. The aliens tend to have names like Warren and Nealy while the human characters are called Micro Ice, Aarch and D'Jok.
* LethalChef: Though he doesn't make it himself, Micro Ice's soft drink range in season 3 is mentioned to be very bad tasting.
* LimitedWardrobe: Partially averted with the Snow Kids, who tend to wear the same clothes day to day, but also are seen throughout the series in a wide arrange of other outfits. Played straight with almost everyone else, most glaringly with Aarch who wears his coat in the Akillian Blizzard and the tropical Wambas planet, Norata, who wears his gardener's gloves EVERYWHERE, and Warren, who is never seen without his trademark suit.
** Finally averted in season 3 where the adults who make it to Paradisia get a costume change to account for the warmer weather.

* LoveRedeems: [[spoiler:Sinedd]] in season 3

* MarriedToTheJob: In the past this pretty much decimated Aarch's relationships with Norata and Addim.
* TheMedic: Dame Simbai.
* MeddlingParents: Mei's mother is extremely ambitious on her behalf, even going so far as to encourage her daughter to [[ShowSomeLeg use her feminine wiles ]] to create a rift in D'Jok and Micro-Ice's friendship.
* MiracleRally
* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: When Sinedd reached the DespairEventHorizon in season 3, the Shadows told him to forget it and get back to work. Is it that big of a surprise that he joins [[spoiler: The Snow Kids]] shortly after?
* ModelCouple: Season 2 shows D'Jok and Mei are being marketed off as one. Season 3 does the same with Mei and [[spoiler: Sinedd.]]
* MostDefinitelyNotAVillain: Bleylock from the past fits this pretty handily "Don't worry, we definetely won't use this potential weapon of mass destruction for military purposes..."
* MundaneUtility: Flux gives super-strength, super-speed, super-agility, teleportation, hypnosis and possibly flight but is used only to play Soccer. A Jedi Council is in place to rigidly enforce this rule.)
** Somewhat lampshaded, since in the backstory, Flux was used to fight savage wars, so the restrictions are seen as necessary.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone?: Rocket says this almost word for word in the season 2 episode "The Fallen Star", after realizing his Netherball opponent is actually Tia.( he thought he was playing against various previous opponents)
** [[spoiler: Mei using the Smog]] could be considered one from her expression. Her [[spoiler: joining the Shadows]] deflates that idea.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: In season 3, just as Clamp is putting the finishing touches on the [[spoiler: Anti Multi-Flux]], Sydney and Harvey drop a can of Mice Delight in it.
* NobodyThinksItWillWork: [[spoiler: Sinedd and Mei]]
* NoOSHACompliance: The gardens in Genesis stadium, as shown when [[spoiler: Tia]] nearly falls to her death there. The Genesis stadium pitch is a minor example, since if the glass field breaks there is nothing to stop the players from plummeting to their doom, [[spoiler: as shown in the season 2 finale.]]
* NonhumansLackAttributes: Warren is designed to look like down to the suit he wears for public appearances. However his appearance differs from Dr. Manhattan in regards to one large attribute.
* NonMammalMammaries: Averted with the Shadows. Played straight with pretty much everyone else.
* NotSoDifferent: D'jok and Sinedd are both JerkJocks, both are strikers, both grew up as orphans, both have the hots for Mei and both 'betrayed' their teams at one point or another.
* OffModel: Season 3, especially episode 2.
* OldFlame: Aarch and Addim.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: D'Jok and Sinedd
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Sinedd to D'Jok in ''The Duel''.

* [[RealMenWearPink Real Villains Wear Pink]]: Right Harris?
* RememberTheNewGuy: Apparently everyone knew Mark before he joined the team and at one point he was set to replace Micro-Ice.
** Crosses over into AssPull. Supposedly, he was up for consideration when Micro-Ice had left with the pirates, but if that was the case, Aarch would have had him play instead of using a clone, as the clones at that point could have been beaten by a crippled 5-year old. They should just have had him be a friend of the players that had been away during the last cup.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Vega, one of the baddies from season 3, can transform into a massive red snake.
* PunnyName: D'Jok is the Jock. Sinedd performs the FaceHeelTurn. Who knows what Micro-Ice is a pun of.

* StockFootage: Used a lot.
* SunglassesAtNight: Not to mention in space, right Artegor?
* TalkingToHimself: It's a pretty small cast.
* TeachersPet: An early source of friction amoung the team is the fact that Rocket is Aarch's nephew, which makes some people think that he got a free pass into the team.
* TeamSpirit
* TeensAreShort: Rocket, the tallest of his team, is still one head shorter than his dad.
** This could be blamed on the height of the adults, since Rocket's confirmed height is 190 cm.

* ThoseTwoGuys: Zoran & Wotan, Sydney and Harvey.

* TwinBanter: Ahito & Thran
