[[caption-width-right:350:Hey, does this kid look like he could actually be [[WesternAnimation/TheReplacements Dick Daring]]'s son?]]

''Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil'' is the latest in WaltDisney Television Animation's line of animated series, focusing on the eponoymous character, a seemingly fearless 10 year old with the looks of a cute mascot coupled with the [[VoiceOfDramatic six-packs-a-day vocals]] and personality similar to Wolverine, who aspires to become the world's greatest daredevil. His adventures are aided by his best friend/stunt coordinator/sidekick Gunther, and hindered by his older brother Brad, who despises his younger brother's antics with a vengeance. The show premiered on DisneyXD on February 13, 2010 and ended on December 2, 2012.

----
!!This show features examples of the following tropes:

* AffectionateParody: "Kyle E. Coyote" to the old ''[[LooneyTunes Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner]]'' shorts.
* AllCheeringAllTheTime: "2-4-6-8! Battle Snax is really great!"
* AlliterativeName: Bradley and Brianna Buttowski.
** There's also Brianna's arch rival, Penelope Patterson.
** Gordon Gibble, anyone?
** Gunther's father, Magnus Magnusson.
** Shogun Sanchez and his little brother Papercut Peterson.
* AlphaBitch: Kelly.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: Mr. Vickle.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Mr. Vickle.
** Mr. Vickle's reaction to finding Kick [[WholesomeCrossdresser wearing makeup and a frilly pink dress?]] "Oh no, Kick. That outfit is so not you - clashes with your skin tone."
* AsideGlance: Kick does them all the time.
* AxCrazy: Kick's Dad, Harold in "Crumbs!".
* AwesomeMcCoolname: The eponymous character.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: While Kick and Brad have an intense and violent SiblingRivalry they still care deeply about each other.
** The basic formula of any episode involving Kick and Brianna.
* {{Badass}}: Kick...arguably a BadassAdorable.
** Though you may not want to mention the [[TheNapoleon adorable]] bit where he can hear you.
* BadassCrew: The Blonde Brigade.
* {{Badbutt}}: The very name. Well, KickAss was already taken...
* {{Balloonacy}}: In "Love Stinks!", Kick suspends a skateboard ramp in the air above his house by means of helium balloons.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Kick and Kendall.
* BewareOfViciousDog: Oscar the dog.
* BigBrotherBully: Brad, unless he's dating someone. Also, Shogun Sanchez to Papercut Peterson.
* BigEater: Gunther.
** Jackie too. In "Snowpocalypse" she eats all the food supplies and even after that she's still hungry.
* BigLittleBrother: Papercut Peterson is taller than Shogun Sanchez.
* BigNo: In the first episode.
** [[spoiler:Kendall at the end of "Roll Reversal"]].
* BirdsOfAFeather: Kick and Scarlet.
* BindleStick: Represented in the opening image of "Live in Wade".
* BitingTheHandHumor / TakeThat: "Look Gunther, we don't [[AwesomeMusic/PhineasAndFerb need]] [[AwesomeMusic/{{Disney}} songs]]!"
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Kick's three love interests are Kendall (blonde), Jackie (brunette), and Scarlet (redhead).
* BookEnds: The show begins, and ends with Kick going to shred Dead Mans Drop.
* BoyBand: The Yeah Brads -- right down to sheer lavender T-shirts and music intended to freak girls out.
* BrandX: Gunther's favorite energy drink, Cheetah Chug, is supposedly made from real cheetah sweat.
* BrattyHalfPint: Kick and Brad's younger sister Brianna is a pageant girl.
* BumblingDad/ ParentsAsPeople/ ParentalNeglect: Harold and Honey Buttowski swing between these three tropes (specially Harold).
* ButtMonkey: Brad.
** Emo Kid as well.
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes: Done in Attic-a.
* CainAndAbel: Kick and Brad, in a soft form.
* CanadaEh: [[TheFamilyForTheWholeFamily Luigi Vendetta]] stays at ''Fugetabootit'', [[OverlyNarrowSuperlative "East Mellowbrook's finest Italian-Canadian Caf"]]. While Luigi himself is all Cosa Nostra, his henchpeople dress as Canadian stereotypes, and finishes every sentence with an "eh".
* CaptiveAudience: In "Kick or Treat" Kendall invites all the kids to her house to make them listen to her report on the history of Halloween.
* {{Catchphrase}}: which also [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gets literal crap past the radar]] "Biscuits!"
** For one episode, there was also "Chimichanga!"
** "''I'' '''''Don't.''''' '''''KNOW.'''''"
** "This is gonna Kick Buttowski!"
** Brad says "Yeah, Brad!" when ever it seems he's winning at something.
* ChainedHeat: "Hand in Hand"
* CharactersAsDevice: "For the Love of Gunther" has Jackie's mom. Her only purpose was to appear for a minute and list several of Jackie's interests in a row to get the plot going.
* TheCheerleader: The heartless variety appears in "Love Stinks". Apparently becoming a cheerleader at Mellowbrooke High requires seducing some poor, hapless loser and humiliating him in front of a large crowd in addition to breaking his heart as part of the initiation.
* ChekhovsGun: "OH NO! PAPERCUTS! [[LargeHam MY ONLY]] [[WeaksauceWeakness WEAKNESS!]] And ''don't you forget it!''"
* CherylBlossom: [[ActionGirl Scarlet Rosetti]] ([[GirlOfTheWeek arguably]]).
* TheChewToy: Brad, Emo Kid, and even Kick at times (especially Season 2).
* ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere: "Kick the Habit"
** The same thing happens in "Runaway Recital" and "Clothes Call", except that Kick isn't actually trying to go cold turkey; He's just unable to take advantage of the ridiculously convenient offers that turn up in theses episodes.
* CompanionCube: Harold and Honey Buttowski are both very fond of their cars. Honey calls hers "Antonio", while Harold calls his "Monique", and he is afraid that "Monique" will be jealous if "she" finds out that he's married to Honey.
** Kick has this same trait. His skateboard is "Ol' Blue", his [=BMX=] bike is "Bonecrusher", and his sled is "Blue Lightning".
* CompressedHair: Exaggerated in "Sleepover" when one of Gunther's mom's pigtails is undone and it fills the entire house.
* ContinuityNod: In "A Very Buttowski Mother's Day" Brad has the same pink bike helmet he stole from a little girl in the second episode.
* ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping: "A Cousin Kyle Christmas" has Kick spending all of ten seconds drawing eyes on a stinky, old sock and sticking it in a bag for Cousin Kyle's gift. Kick cared only enough to actually make a puppet out of the sock. The trope is then subverted as Kick goes all-out to get Kyle not only a puppet but the nicest one in the store.
* CoolHelmet: Apparently, Kick's helmet is a mass-produced toy helmet he got when he was a toddler. Nevertheless, [[CompanionCube he treats it like it's unique]] and [[SeriousBusiness completely irreplaceable]], and never takes if off (except in the one episode where he lost it, and he still kept his hair covered up in the meantime).
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Gunther all the way. He once took down an enraged bull with his bare hands. When he gets really mad, he becomes a professional-level rapper.
* CrushFilter:
** Subverted with Kick's crush on the stunt girl from his sister's favorite show.
** Played straight with Gunther's crush on Wacky Jackie.
* TheDanza: Henry Winkler as Henry, the principal of Kick's school.
** In-universe, Teena Sometimes. Also Scarlett Rosetti as Scarlet Letter, sort of.
* DeadpanSnarker: Kick, often.
* DisasterDominoes: Kick knocks over all the bookcases in the Mellowbrook library battling the evil Librarian.
* DishDash: Played with: Brad in "There Will Be Nachos" grabs a bunch of flyers for a party out of the air and stuffs them into his clothes before his parents can see them.
** Kick does a genuine DishDash in "Stand and Delivery". Gunther drops a huge stack of dishes. Kick plucks them out of the air.
* ADogAteMyHomework: Kick uses this excuse every time he misses an assignment for the whole semester. The teacher does not believe him until she sees it with her own eyes, prompting an IronicEcho from Kick of her smirky "mm-HMM" noise.
** It is implied that that particular day is the first time Oscar actually eats Kick's homework.
* DoNotTryThisAtHome: Everything Kick does on his skateboard/bike etc.
* DontExplainTheJoke:
-->'''Gunther:''' Hey Kick, what's all the racket? (''guffaws'') Get it? Racket! You're holding rackets.
* DoubleEdgedAnswer: Honey Buttowski's reaction to Kick asking if the pink sequined jumpsuit with the H shaped belt buckle was hers.
-->'''Honey:''' No. Yes! No!
* DrunkWithPower: The ScaryLibrarian in "If Books Could Kill" who considers everything in the library her property, including people.
** Mouth's big brother Pantsie when he's assistant manager at the movie theater in "Box Office Blitz".
* EmbarrassingCoverUp: In "Hand in Hand" Kick and Kendall each impose one on the other.
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep : Almost everyone calls Kick by his nickname. Only Kendall regularly calls him by his real name, the less than badass Clarence.
** Same goes for Mouth (real name Christopher) and Emo Kid (NoNameGiven).
** Even Kick's mother refers to him as Kick, only calling him Clarence when he's in trouble or she's doing something official with him. Likewise, Brianna calls him Kick unless she's upset with him for something.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Horribly subverted in "According to Chimp", to the point where [[DudeNotFunny it'll likely make you cringe]] if [[http://www.wfsb.com/news/18726175/detail.html you live in Connecticut]].
* {{Expy}}: Gunther is a possible expy of Owen from TotalDramaIsland.
* ExtracurricularEnthusiast: Kendall. In "Snowpocalypse!" she even had her dad make a call to keep the school open on a snow day.
* ExtremeOmnivore: In "Snowpocalypse!" all of the kids except for Kendall get so hungry while waiting for help they consider eating the bus seats. For most of the kids this is just desperation, but with Jackie it's a mix of desperation and her actually finding them tasty.
* EyeAmWatchingYou: The librarian to Kick, on the subject of making sure he stays quiet.
* FakeOutMakeOut: Kick kisses Kendall to avoid getting thrown out of the movie theater by a local bully turned overzealous usher.
** They wind up doing it again when their hands get stuck together.
* FakingTheDead: [[spoiler: Kick's stuntman hero, "Dead Man" Dave.]]
* FatBestFriend: Gunther.
* FatSlob: In "Petrified!" Honey and Brianna of all people, when the boys are out of the house. [[spoiler:Though at the end it's shown to just be part of Kick's made-up story, so it might not be true.]]
* {{Flanderization}}: In the span of three episodes about her, Wacky Jackie goes from rabid fangirl to FLAT OUT INSANE, though this may just be because she has no idea how to throw a party.
** And, honestly, besides the rabid fangirl thing, she really didn't have much characterization for those three episodes.
* TheFaceless: Gordie's father, Mr. Gibble. In his first onscreen appearance, "Goodbye, Gully", he only ever appears as a shadowy silhouette.
* FatAndSkinny: There are two sets of ThoseTwoGuys: The two guys who run Skittzee's bike shop, and the two who run the puppet and hobby shop across the street from Skittzee's.
* {{Fiction 500}}: Gordie's father, Mr. Gibble, has a money tree. Also, his son's methods of transportation include a limo, a drivable yacht, and a blimp which are all chauffeur driven. And Gordie frequently buys entire stores via his father's cash. In fact, it's safe to assume ALL of Gordie's spending habits are financed by his father, and if so, Mr. Gibble certainly deserves to be in this category.
* FiveManBand: The Blonde Brigade in "Detained"
** TheLeader: Kick Buttowski (though his real hair color is unknown.)
** TheLancer: Gunther Magnuson
** TheBigGuy: Mouth
** TheSmartGuy: Ronaldo
** TheChick: Kendall Perkins
** SixthRanger: The Janitor
* FlungClothing: Gunther can switch from any one of his {{Paper Thin Disguise}}s back to his normal look this way.
* FlushingToiletScreamingShower: Brad does this to Kick in "Love Stinks!".
* FollowInMyFootsteps: Both Kick's mother and Kick's grandfather (though we're not sure if it's maternal or paternal grandfather) were both daredevils in their youth as well. And despite the parental grumping about being careful, they're both proud of Kick.
* FriendlyEnemy: Whenever Kick and Brad doesn't have any real ''reason'' to fight each other, they fight each other anyway, [[RuleOfFun just because they both get a kick out of it]] (pun not intended).
** Kick seems to view a number of his antagonists as this, though it's usually more one-sided (the most obvious exceptions being his siblings, Mouth, and sometimes Kendall due to their BelligerentSexualTension). He'll [[WorthyOpponent compliment]] or even end up helping someone he was fighting against moments before.
* FunHatingConfiscatingAdult: Ms. Chickarelli. Any toy she snatches goes into her trash (unless it's at school where she uses it as evidence for the kid's ''permanent record'').
** The librarian is also a confiscator. Anything that enters the library she considers hers for keeps.
* {{Gasshole}}: Gunther. Also Brad sometimes. Surprisingly Kendall who rips one on a level equal to that of Gunther, and them implies that it happens often
* GenkiGirl: Jackie and - on a somewhat [[ChildrenAreInnocent less disturbing level]] - Brianna's BlackBestFriend Madison.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: An in-universe example in "Rank of Awesome": Gunther is apparently ''very'' popular in Scandinavia.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: There's a lot. [[Radar/KickButtowski It even has its own page!]]
* GoodAngelBadAngel: In Kick's case, Gunther is the angel, and Brad is the devil.
* GratuitousSpanish: Gunther. Usually when an animal is very large.
-->'''Gunther:''' El moth gigante!
-->'''Gunther:''' El pescado grande!
* GreenAroundTheGills: All the kids who got food poisoning in "Bee Awesome".
* GrossUpCloseUp: Several images in "For The Love of Gunther".
* HadTheSillyThingInReverse: Kick and a bunch of snowblowers all strapped together.
* {{Hammerspace}}: In "Box Office Blitz" Kendall pulls a whistle from out of nowhere.
* HartmanHips: Honey Buttowski.
** The limo driver in "Kickasaurus Wrecks".
* HeavyMetalUmlaut: Not heavy metal per se, but the restaurant sign reading "Fd".
* HeroesWantRedheads: Kick's crush on [[MeaningfulName Scarlet Rosetti]].
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Kick and Gunther.
* HollywoodAtlas: Gunther's old country seems to be NorseByNorsewest with vikings and added elements from YodelLand and rural Holland.
* {{Homage}}: In "Poll Position", Gunther does a full riff on Linus from ''{{Peanuts}}'' explaining Christmas to Charlie Brown; except he's explaining the way school elections work to Kick Buttowski.
** A whole cartoon long one to the Creator/TexAvery cartoon involving "not having to wake the sleeper with a loud noise".
* HugeSchoolgirl: Brianna's other best friend, Abbie.
* HypocriticalHumor:
-->'''Honey:''' You're going to your grandpa's!\\
'''Kick:''' No! Not Grandpa's! Anything but Grandpa's!\\
'''Honey:''' Oh, come on now. What's so bad about Grandpa?\\
'''Kick:''' His voice is weird, he always wears the same thing, and his butt sticks out.\\
'''Honey:''' [[LampshadeHanging You might have more in common with him than you think.]]
* IdenticalGrandson: Kick looks exactly like his grandpa did when he was younger. Right down to not having a nose.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming : All involving the word "Kick"
** Has been dropped as of recent episodes.
* IsolationDespondency: "Abandon Friendship" has Kick and Gunther's parents starting a fight... not exactly because of Kick and Gunther's hanging out, though it initiated it, but through harmless insults (spoken in a joking manner between the adults). Kick's father Harold gets the worst insults thrown at him, but it's his insult toward Gunther's Viking father Magnus that breaks the camel's back. Needless to say the boys are banned from seeing each other.
* {{Jerkass}}: Brad Buttowski.
** [[LawfulStupid Ms Chicarelli]] is even worse.
*** Ronaldo - after how he went and abused Kick for personal gain in "Power Play", a recent Season 2 episode.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Brianna Buttowski. Despite of all, she loves her brother.
** Kendall Perkins. She may be an annoying girl on her first episodes, but after, we saw she is not that bad.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Kelly. Kick thinks she's having second thoughts about [[spoiler:dumping Brad in front of the whole school]], but she's really just [[spoiler:thinking about how she can make it even more humiliating for him.]]
* KnowYourVines: Kick and Brad are lost in the woods. While Kick, who likes to rough it, sleeps in the bare ground, Brad brags about how Kick wishes he had a comfy blanket of natural foliage like him. Kick's SarcasmMode response? "You're right, Brad. I wish I had a blanket of poison ivy."
* LamarckWasRight: Honey and Brianna both share an appreciation for [[EverythingsBetterWithSparkles sparkles and glitter]]. Honey had a sequined suit when she was Honey Splash, and Brianna is a pageant girl whose performances usually involve glitter of some kind.
* LampshadeHanging: "I don't even know what a dillweed is!"
* LaserGuidedKarma: Should Kick ever keep his promise, fix his own mistakes, or just simply do the right thing out of his own free will, the episode usually ends with him getting his way.
* LaughWithMe: Gordon Gibble snaps his fingers every time he wants his henchmen to laugh at something he just said. Ronaldo demands the same thing from his pit crew in the episode "Mellowbrook Drift". At one point he says: "Laugh harder!" On another occasion, he stops them, stating "It wasn't that funny!"
* LittleBigBrother: Shogun Sanchez is shorter than Papercut Peterson.
* LittleMissBadass: Brianna Buttowski.
* LoonyFan: Jackie.
* LovableAlphaBitch[=/=]AcademicAlphaBitch: Kendall Perkins.
* LoveTriangle: Kick, Kendall and [[spoiler:Ronaldo.]]
** Kick, Jackie and Gunther in a subverted, BettyAndVeronica kind of way.
* MadeOfIron: Kick; he suffers little to no damage from his stunts (DependingOnTheWriter).
* TheMafia and TheIrishMob: Parodied in the form of Luigi Vendetta, on screen, and Paddy O'Payback (seen only as a calling card).
* MagicPants: Averted. In the first two episodes, Kick loses his clothes once in each (by flying through a rosebush and getting splashed with toxic waste, respectively). Fortunately, CensorSteam and the like does come up.
* MagicSkirt: The limo driver in "Kickasaurus Wrecks".
* [[MeadowRun Meadow Monster Truck Drive]]
* {{Meganekko}}: Jackie and the limo driver in "Kickasaurus Wrecks".
* MidairMotionShot: All over the place, unsurprisingly.
* MotivationOnAStick: Gunther's backside is used as the carrot on the stick to get the crazy little dog to chase him and thereby pull the sled to rescue the schoolbus full of kids from a snow-filled gully.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Kick loses his clothes several times.
* NightmareFetishist: In "Gift of Wacky", Kick has Brad make him a present for Jackie that will make her hate him forever. [[TakeOurWordForIt They never show what it is]], but whatever it is it scared every other kid off and only made her love him even more.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Mr. Vickle's voice is based on Harvey Fierstein.
* NoDialogueEpisode: "Kyle E. Coyote", except for Kyle saying "chug-chug" over and over.
* NoodleIncident: In "Tattler's Tale" a bunch of kids and Mr. Vickle are ratted on by Ms. Chicarelli, but we only see what Kick, Brad and Gunther did to get punished.
* NoSympathy: In "Nerves of Steal" it turns out [[spoiler:Kick was stealing everyone's stuff in his sleep and couldn't help it]], but he gets punished anyway.
* NotNowKiddo: An odd kid-on-kid example in "You've Been Brad'd", wherein Kick refuses at first to listen to Gunther.
* ObviousStuntDouble: Subverted when Kick takes Scarlett's place as Teena's stunt double. It's fixed in editing so Kick looks exactly like Teena. Later, when Kick winds up in hospital, he's replaced with [[ButtMonkey Emo Kid]].
* OffscreenKarma: In "Stay Cool", Briana and Kick cause their air conditioner to break, and scapegoat Brad for it. Kick is pressured by guilt until confessing the truth, getting himself punished while Briana apparently gets off scot-free. ''However'' at the tail end of the episode, her materials fall off the bus while she is on her way to camp.
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: In "You've Been Brad'd" Brad's constant pranks reduce Kick to a nervous wreck and he flinches when Gunther puts a hand on his shoulder.
-->'''Gunther:''' Kick, you flinched! I've never seen you flinch before...
* ParentalFavoritism: Brianna is the favourite. Kick doesn't much care. Brad is second to Brianna (and his dad) and wants to move up, especially at Kick's expense.
* PicturePerfectPresentation: In "A Very Buttowski Mother's Day" Kick looks at a billboard depicting a farm, and the shot dissolves into the real farm as Kick arrives.
* PlentyOfBlondes
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Implied and pretty much made fun of with Gunther. A few episodes mention his family are Vikings.
* PuffOfLogic: In "Bee Awesome" Kendall managed to scarf down two whole helpings of the tuna surprise before starting to suffer the effects of food poisoning after Gunther said he got food poisoning from it. She was wolfing them down really fast, but still...
* PunBasedTitle: "Snow Problem".
* PunnyName: The titular Kick Buttowski and his idol, Billy Stumps, who is missing a hand
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: In "Detained", the Blonde Brigade: which includes Kick (the leader, and isn't a blond, maybe?), Gunther, Kendall, Ronaldo, and Mouth.
* RealMenWearPink: Kick's dad Harold in an ImagineSpot from Kick.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: The Nuzzlett. [[spoiler:Just don't give it candy...]]
* RingerPloy: Kick enlists the kids of Mellowbrook (and at least one adult) to dress up like him and be visible to foil the tattling Chicarelli.
* TheRival: Gordon Gibble from West Mellowbrook is a softened version of this to Kick. But he mainly gets his fame from his rich father and cheating, whereas Kick's comes from genuine awesomeness and the pursuit of same.
* RuleOfCool: The Law of Awesome is the series' bread and butter. An entire episode is even devoted to it prevailing over the actual laws of physics.
* RunningGag: Papercut always refers to Gunther as "Little Girl"
* RedOniBlueOni: Brad and Kick respectively.
** Kick and Gunther, ColorCodedForYourConvenience.
* SanitySlippage: The whole family appears prone to it; at hyperspeed.
** Honey starts having a breakdown in the mall at the ''thought'' of not finding Kick a suit for Aunt Sally's Nth wedding.
** Kick, in the same episode, begins having a similar breakdown because he's having trouble resisting all his normal awesome stunt-related activities.
** The entire family begins losing their minds when Kick traps them in a cabin with an avalanche; they're there for maybe a matter of hours.
* SecondPlaceIsForLosers: Subverted in "A Very Buttowski Mother's Day". Kick and Brad both know they have no chance at beating Brianna at being their mom's #1 child, so they instead compete for #2.
* SeriousBusiness: Pantsie took being an usher way too seriously.
* ShownTheirWork: The Rank of awesome. The ways the rank work is surprisingly realistic.
** Gunter is famous for a failed star wars parody not unlike the Star Wars kid. And TruthInTelevision, [[{{Slapstick}} people love to see others misery.]]
** Kendel has the top ranked video of her cat dancing in a Kick Buttowski costume. [[RuleOfCute So...yeah]].
** [[ForcedMeme The more Kick Buttowski tries to get views the LESS views he gets.]] [[EverythingsCuterWithKittens His only popular video was a cat licking him while almost killed.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: Gunther apparently liked seeing Kick kiss Kendall in "Box Office Blitz".
** And Kick tried to help Gunther hook up with with Jackie - partly to get rid of her, but also because he wanted to help his friend.
** At the end of "Dancing With the Enemy", Kick and Kendall are having a very affectionate moment, until someone in the crowd shouts "Kiss her!". This, of course, is their cue to go back to acting as if they hate each other.
* ShipTease: Kick and Kendall in "Dancing With the Enemy".
** And again in "Hand In Hand".
** In "Power Play" she drops a sand bag on Ronaldo so Kick would take his place as Romeo.
*** And one more time in "Detained", as Kendall wrote "I love KB" on her locker.
**** [[spoiler:And possibly once more in "Rocked", as Kendall appears as a beautiful woman in Kick's dream, this could represent how Kick really sees her]].
* ShoutOut:
** In "According to Chimp", the chimps chasing Kick and Gunther through Mellowbrook make the sounds of {{Pac-Man}}.
** The fact that the #1 video on Rank of Awesome in the episode related to it was simply Kendall dressing up her cat to look like Kick may be a reference to how much [[ImageBoards certain inhabitants]] of the Internet like cats.
** Pantsie, one of Brad's goons resembles one of [[Film/BackToTheFuture Biff Tannen's]] goons, right down to always wearing 3D glasses.
** The school bus driver is based on Chris Farley's character from ''Film/BillyMadison''.
** Gordon Gibble says, "I got skills, they're multiplyin'!" which is a variation on lyrics from "The One That I Want" from ''Film/{{Grease}}''.
** In "Sleepover", Kick and Gunther are planning to see "Perseus In Pittsburgh", the very first movie starring their favorite movie star, Rock Callahan. This is a reference to Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger's [[OldShame first movie]], ''Film/HerculesInNewYork''.
** Principal Henry(Voiced by Henry "The Fonz" Winkler) orders a special sandwich, from [[HappyDays Milwaukee]].
** One episode had Cousin Kyle cosplay as [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZelda Link]] and another has Kendall do [[VisualNovel/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright's]] trademark finger point (complete with loud OBJECTION!).
** Film/TheMatrix: Part of Kick's dodgeball style.
** Mouth shares the same nickname as [[Film/TheGoonies a certain "loud-mouth" Goonie]].
* ShowWithinAShow: ''Teena Sometimes'': Sometimes a princess, sometimes a spy.
* TheSlacker: Wade.
* SnapBack / NegativeContinuity: One episode had Gunther developing a crush on Jackie and trying to win her heart - and succeeding at the end. Two episodes later, Jackie's back to stalking Kick, but Gunther is STILL crushing on her.
** It makes sense when you remember that she's only into daredevils and Gunther hasn't done a stunt since that episode.
** As mentioned above Guther seemed to like seeing Kick kiss Kendall. However when he saw them together in "Hand in Hand" he got upset and ran away crying.
* SpoiledBrat: Brianna Buttowski.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Subverted in "Wade Against The Machine". Wade tries to get demoted back to his old job by doing a bad job at the office, but that only gets him promoted. Then he tries to do a ''good'' job instead, but he ''still'' gets promoted. In the end, Kick [[CuttingTheKnot simply tells his boss that Wade was happier at his old workplace]].
* StalkerWithACrush: Wacky Jackie.
* StandInParents: Kick goes around the neighbourhood trying to find someone to act as his dad for "bring your father to school" day. His father finds out and is hurt that Kick asked Wade to pretend to be him. He then shows up and tries to be cool, with unfortunate results. They end up meeting each other halfway.
* TemptingFate: The neighbor actually asks "WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong"
** In "Shh", Mrs. Fitzgerald tells Kick that "you'd better blow the roof off the school with this report". From this moment on, [[ForegoneConclusion we all know what's going to happen]] [[ChekhovsGag before the episode is over]], [[GenreSavvy don't we?]]
** Kick himself was guilty of this in the same episode for complaining about being given "the least deadliest animal". As soon as he gave the nuzzlet a piece of candy...
* ThatPoorCat: If a character throws something offscreen, some unfortunate cat is almost guaranteed to be in its path.
* ThatPoorPlant: ''Kendall'', revealing a rather unusual case of HiddenDepths, releases a flatulence that causes plants to blacken and wilt instantly in "Hand in Hand".
* ThirdPersonPerson: Chuck Glarmen really likes saying Chuck Glarmen's name. Chuck Glarmen!
* ThoseTwoGuys:
** [[{{Jerkass}} Horace and Pantsie]]
** [[FatAndSkinny Hush and Razz]]
** [[{{Mook}} The Di Pazzi]] [[SingleMindedTwins twins]]
* TokenMinority: Brianna's unnamed black friend.
** In "Sister Pact", it's implied that her name could be Madison.
* TheOldCountry: Where Gunther's family is from. And yes, it ''is'' called "The Old Country".
* TheStoic: Kick.
* TheStoner: Also Wade. To relax, he suggests [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar what amounts to]] huffing air fresheners.
* ThirtyMinutesOrItsFree: Ronaldo almost drove Battle Snax bankrupt by abusing this policy. When Kick found a way to outsmart Ronaldo and make a deliver on time, Ronaldo had to WorkOffTheDebt.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Kick with either Jackie, Kendell or Scarlet.
** Brad and the [[StatuesqueStunner giant Viking babe]] in "Bwar and Peace".
* TitleDrop: "There Will Be Nachos"
* TrampledUnderfoot: Brad steps on a mama doll's head as he tries to steal "the hangout" back from Kick and Gunther.
** In "Truth or Daredevil", Kick's grandfather loses his goggles and the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazi analogue]] badguys goose step on them.
* UnderdogsNeverLose: In "Mow Money", even though Kick is obviously slower and weaker than Gunther in addition to Gunther getting a head start, he still manages to tie.
* UnfortunateNames / UnintentionalInnuendo: Wackie Jackie, thanks to the [[http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=wacky%20jackie definitions]] on Urban Dictionary.
* [[spoiler:UnresolvedSexualTension: Between Kick and Kendall]].
* VomitDiscretionShot / VomitIndiscretionShot: In "Bee Awesome" when Kendall gets food poisoning. She isn't shown vomiting, but you do see the vomit.
* WallJump: Part of Kick's dodgeball playing style.
* VikingFuneral: Gunther gives Kick's helmet a viking funeral. We even see nordic god/ancestor constellation entities watching the funeral.
* TheVoice: As of "Goodbye, Gully", Mr. Gibble is this.
* WeWantOurJerkBack: Both averted and played straight in "Love Stinks". Kick enjoys it when his brothers mellows out, but Brad's buddies miss both him and his bossy {{jerkass}} attitude.
* WideEyesAndShrunkenIrises: When Gunther drinks too much Cheetah Chug, his pupils get very, very tiny.
* XanatosGambit: In "Big Mouth" [[spoiler:Mouth helps Kick and Gunther see their show on the mall jail monitors by getting them arrested and gets Kendall Kick's mugshot, which she hired him to do earlier]].
* YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious:
** Gunther uses Kick's real name -- [[EmbarrassingFirstName Clarence]] -- to drive home the point that Kick has ''really'' messed up choosing his "fan" over his ''friend''.
