''Rated "A" for Awesome'' is a Canadian/American animated series. It focuses on the adventures of a group of "Awesomizers": Stepsiblings Les and Thera Awesome and their friends Lars, Noam, and pet monkey Mr. Twitchy, strive to make anything that's lame or "blah" awesome.

----
!!This series provides examples of the following tropes:

* AccidentalMisnaming: Holly Hotley never gets Les' name right, even calling him "Lindsey" on one occasion.
* AIIsACrapShoot: Some of the machines the Awesomizers build end up turning on them, most notably ALEC, a smart computer designed to organise the school yearbook; It developed an unhealthy fixation with it's creator, Noam, and tried to get rid of the others.
* AlphaBitch: The Trishas.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Thera and her mom, Angelina. Though Thera's first name and their surname, Kerplopolis, seem to imply they're Greek.
* AngstNuke: Noam spent one episode wearing a device to remove his negative emotions (The "Blues Smoother"). The others, wanting the old Noam back, desecrate [[MyFavoriteShirt his favorite shirt]], making him so angry that the Blues Smoother overloads and explodes.
* AttentionWhore: The Trishas in "When Mascots Attack"; When Lars is accepted onto the cheer squad, they put him in the "Growly Gopher" costume, so he won't draw attention away from them. When an Awesomization foils their plan, they leak the tech to the school's rivals, and start cheering for them instead.
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Lester Awesome and Thera Kerplopolis-Awesome. Also their dad, Max Awesome.
* BalloonBelly: A group of MoleMen get these in "Garbage In, Garbage Out" after eating lots of garbage. Unlike other examples, this is explained somewhat by the Mole Men having a fast metabolism (Which allows them to work off the weight just as quickly).
* BlackEyesOfEvil: The glambies in "Mall of the Living Dolls".
* BlondesAreEvil: The Trishas.
* BlowYouAway: In "Go For The Gusto", Les develops a new martial art, "Gusto", adapted from fanning away bad odors. Waving his hands creates a whirlwind that carries away his opponants.
* CantGetInTroubleForNuthin: Thera tries and fails to get detention in one episode.
* CatsAreMean: Holly's cat Tonga. She gets even worse when her intelligence is enhanced.
* ConvectionShmonvection: In "Silent Night, Awesome Night", the Awesomisers stand right next to a flow of lava with no ill effects (Noam even proclaims it to be the ''safest'' place to be when the lava threatens to engulf Glickersville).
* CoolLoser: Team Awesome. Even though a lot of their inventions end up going wrong, you'd think they'd be considered cool by the other kids.
* CoolTeacher: Mr. Fadenjeans.
* CompellingVoice: Lars develops this in "Voice of Lars."
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: From "Mall of the Living Dolls":
-->'''Trishas:''' Hellooooo!
-->'''Trisha #1:''' If anyone gets one of these awesome mega makeovers, it's uuuuus!
-->'''Trisha #2:''' Although I seriously doubt it'll make us awesomer than we already are.
