---------
!!This show provides examples of:

* TheAce - Subverted. Coop could have easily been the smartest, most popular kid in town if he didn't have Kat to worry about.
* ActionGirlfriend - Fiona.
* AdultsAreUseless - Only three people know Kat is an alien and they're all kids; Coop, Dennis and Fiona.
** Technically, so do Coop's grandparents, but they choose not to say anything because they might get "put in the old-folk's home." They also travel alot and visit only on occasions so pretty much its up to the kids.
* AlienAnimals - Kat and the rest of his race happen to look and act like Earth cats. Also done with Mr. Cheeks and his race, sentient talking hamsters who are also enemies of the cat folk.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling - Millie.
* ArchEnemy - Coop and Kat.
* AxCrazy- Kat, usually when provoked.
* BadAss - Kat would definitely be one if he wasn't humiliated so many times.
* BadBoss - Kat Kommander won't hesitate to [[TheAllSolvingHammer vaporize his minions for anything]] that displeases him, including ''not getting a nice enough birthday present''. Kat is probably glad that he's several solar systems away.
* BadFuture - Technically an alternate present rather than the future, but in "Cat to the Future", Kat takes over the world after Coop alters the past so that he was never adopted by Millie.
* BedtimeBrainwashing: In "I'm Okay, You're a Kat", Coop discovers a self-help tape in the House of Swap and uses it to make himself far more cheerful by playing it while he's sleeping. Kat gets annoyed by how Coop's optimism makes it much harder to annoy him and edits the tape to make Coop pessimistic, making him scared of his own shadow and literally cry over spilled milk. Afterwards, Kat uses another self-help tape on Burt to brainwash him into his servant. When Coop finds out, he decides to use a self-help tape to become a tough guy, which turns him into a thug and he almost drops his entire family in a pool of [[PsychoElectricEel electric eels]] before he is snapped out of it.
* BigBad - The Kat Kommander.
* BigBallOfViolence - All the time. Always Coop and Kat.
* BiggerOnTheInside - Kat's scratching post tower/portable lair. Even has a bottomless pit, for no apparent reason.
* BitchInSheepsClothing - Millie, who is utterly spoiled by her father.
* BizarreAlienBiology - And how! Acidic saliva, freakish reaction to cold germs, unexplainable weight gain from certain foods... And that's not even getting into what we've seen in the Shorts episodes.
* BlindWithoutEm - Millie.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy - Kat does this to all the neighborhood cats in one episode. As well as all of Bootsville (except for Coop, Lorn, and Harley) in another.
* ButtMonkey - Coop and Kat, definitely. Coop generally filling the "butt of every demeaning joke" side of things, and Kat with the "put through hell" plotline.
* CallBack - "Kat to the Future" has Coop time-travel back to the first episode, where Kat was first adopted by the family.
* CassandraTruth - No one will ever believe that Coop is not solely responsible for the destruction his feud with Kat causes. No one will ever believe that Kat is an alien until it's too late.
* TheCatfish
* CatsAreMean - Pretty much the series premise
** Apparently Kat's homeworld is an EvilEmpire. They take over a planet and consume the natural resources. It inevitably ends up becoming a huge mess and at that point, they move on to a new world. When they are called out on this, the basic answer is "well, we're cats." This is less malicious and more a lack of effort to clean up after themselves.
* ConvectionSchmonvection - In "Mind Games", Coop gets suspended a few inches above the molten magma inside an active volcano with no ill effects.
* [[CoolOldLady Cool]] [[CoolOldGuy Grandparents]] - Old Mr. and Mrs. Burtonburger, who borders on being [[MarySue Senior Sues]] in the episode "Keep On Rockin'"
* CrankyNeighbor - Old Lady Munson
* CrapsackWorld - Parodied. Most of people are pretty much [[JerkAss unsympathetic]], because of their really weird psyche. Overally the city seems to be very unfriendly towards each other.
* CrazyCatLady - In "Pet Peeved" Kat is found and taken in by one after he runs away.
* CrossdressingVoices
* DeathGlare - '''The Phoebe eye!'''
* DevilInPlainSight - Kat. You'd think someone would have noticed the pet cat was chuckling evilly all the time.
* DisproportionateRetribution - Kat is very, very guilty of this. Especially in the earlier episodes, where he would try to kill Coop for the slightest insult, like splashing him with water, with creating a whole forest of murderous, meat-eating plants to get revenge.
* TheDogIsAnAlien - Kat, naturally.
* EscalatingWar - To be fair, it's usually Kat who's escalating things.
* EvilerThanThou - Mr. Cheeks to Kat
* FormallyNamedPet - Mr. Kat, Mr. Kitten, Mr. Cheeks
* FourFingeredHands - Lampshaded in "Kat to the Future". After Coop abused the time machine Kat created, Dennis points out that time trave can create a bunch of anomalies. At that moment, he notices he has a fifth finger on his left hand. This episode points out a few times they also have 4-toed feet as well.
* GenerationXerox: Coop and Dennis' lives are awfully similar to their fathers' childhoods.
** Lorne bullies Coop and Lorne's mother used to bully Coop's father, although ''she'' was actually masking a childhood crush.
* HalloweenEpisode - Three of em.
* HeroOnHiatus: Coop went through this in an episode due to the teasing (or lack of acknowledgement) he receives while he saves the town all the time.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Coop is teased and ridiculed by other kids, as well sometimes his father, even if he does manage to save everyone from a blatantly unnatural situation (such as shutting off his static electricity science experiment that was sabotaged, only to receive an F).
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight
* JerkAss - Each character. Especially Millie, Lorn and Harley.
** Old Lady Munsen takes it to extreme levels. Aside from Millie and Fiona, she doesn't like anyone. Even grown men fear her angry wrath.
* LaserBlade - "Play N'Ice"
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Once both [[spoiler: Millie, Lorne and Haley]] learned the truth about Kat, this was [[StatusQuoIsGod inevitable]]. More interestingly, [[spoiler: Fiona]] also became a victim of this at the same time.
** Coop suffers from this in one Christmas episode. Then, somehow, Mr. Burtonburger inherits them. [[StatusQuoIsGod It's fixed by the end, though.]]
* TheMenInBlack - One episode has the family being investigated by some really incompetent ones. They end up arresting ''everyone except Kat'' for being aliens.
* MissingMom - What happened to Mrs. Burtonburger remains a mystery.
* TheMunchausen - Mrs. Munson in "Down The Creek". Although it appears she has proof of her tall tales.
* OlderThanTheyLook - Old Lady Munson was an old lady back when Burt was a kid and Fiona is her great great great great great grand niece.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles - Fiona, as early as her first episode.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis - '''BUR! TON! BUR! GEEEEEEEEEER!'''
* RepetitiveName - Burt Burtonburger.
* RoboticReveal - Mr. Kat turns out to be a cyborg when his X-rays are exposed in the episode called "Nip/Duck".
* RockBeatsLaser - More often than not, Coop and Dennis' clever use of common Earth technology or simply whatever is at hand can outmatch Kat's superior alien technology.
* RushmoreRefacement - This is seen to have happened in the future after the kat invasion in "Kat to the Future", with the heads of the presidents having been replaced by those alien kats.
* TheScapegoat - Whenever something goes wrong, Old Lady Munson will always blame it on Coop, even if it's something not humanly possible.
* SeriousBusiness - Wiener dogs are really, '''really''' serious business in Bootsville. Spoil a drop of the boiling water, and you're banished for life.
* ScoutOut - The Greeny Girls.
* ShoutOut - Lorne and Harley probably remind people of [[Creator/LaurelAndHardy another fat and skinny duo]].
** This exchange between Coop and Dennis, when Kat uses catnip to turn Bootsville into a forest:
---> '''Coop:''' Sounds like we're in the Amazon.
---> '''Dennis:''' [[Characters/BugsBunny We should have taken a left turn at Albequerque.]]
* StatusQuoIsGod - More often than not.
* SmugSnake - Coop, whenever he thinks he has the upper hand.
* SpoiledBrat - Millie. She screams like a banshee when she doesn't get her way, and her father caves in every time.
* StalkerWithACrush - Phoebe can be less than subtle about her crush on Coop. She'll never be among [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy the]] [[{{Chowder}} worst]], though.
* StockAnimalDiet - Kat's weakness for Fishy Frisky Bits
** One of Kat's evil plots was turning the entire town's water supply into milk.
* TeensAreMonsters - Todd Kronklin. Played straight AND lampshaded.
---> '''Harley:''' He's a teenager! They're '''evil!'''
* ThoseTwoGuys - Lorn and Harley.
* ThrowTheDogABone - Fiona for Coop.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl - Millie and Fiona are tomboys. Phoebe is a girly girl.
* VersusTitle
* VillainousGlutton - Kat.
* VoicesAreMental - In "Board Kat" when Coop and Kat switch bodies. Millie and Burt notice Coop's voice coming out of Kat, but think it's just Coop using ventriloquism.
* WeldTheLock - Kat does this several times to the Kat Kommander's rebellious son in "Rebel with a Claw"; once to seal him in a room to get him out of the way, and later to seal him in his transport module before they launch him back into space.
* {{Yandere}} - Phoebe.
* YouCantGoHomeAgain - Kat was trying to do this, originally, and trying desperately to do so during the Christmas special. Naturally, he failed.
* ZombieApocalypse[=/=]OurZombiesAreDifferent - "Flea Brained" has Kat controlling everyone with robotic fleas in their ears. [[Webcomic/GirlGenius Sounds awfully familiar]], no?
