''Rollbots'' is a CanadianSeries set [[InAWorld In a]] WorldInTheSky called Flip City. In it lives a population of TransformingMecha who get around by turning into spheres and rolling (Roll-bots, get it?). The series follows rookie Flip City Police recruit Spin as he and the rest of the [=FCPD=] protect the citizenry from Vertex's team of rogue bots.

!!Tropes:
* {{Animesque}}
* BadBoss: Mayor Aria is highly unpleasant and elitist.
* BarrierWarrior: This is Lance's ability, but he's not good at it.
* ButtMonkey: Lance.
* CassandraTruth: Spin can't convince Captain Pounder that Vertex is a SpiderTank.
** It's obvious he's well aware of it but refuses to let Spin blab.
* ChestInsignia: The various tribe insignias, though they are usually on an arm on leg. Spin doesn't have one, as he doesn't have a tribe that he knows of.
* CrossdressingVoices: Tabitha St. Germain plays [[TagalongKid Tinny]].
* DaChief: Captain Pounder.
* DumbMuscle: Macro.
* EyepatchOfPower: Pounder. Odd, since [[FridgeLogic he's a robot]].
* FaceHeelTurn: Manx was a Kei'zatsu before the series.
* FiveBadBand:
** BigBad: Vertex
** TheDragon, EvilGenius: Manx
** TheBrute: Macro
** DarkChick: Botch[[note]]Not female, but feminine.[[/note]]
** SixthRanger: Phaze, [[spoiler:Vett]]
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Spin
** TheLancer: Tinny
** TheChick: Lance[[note]]Not female, but very feminine.[[/note]]
** TheBigGuy: Pounder
** TheSmartGuy: Penny
* FreeRangeChildren: Tinny, presumably. He's a child who's shown to be around the same age of every other 'bot tot' that is encountered in the show. Yet he's participated in battles against dangerous criminals, runs around constantly with no mention of any parent (assuming he has any), and is generally in a lot of dangerous situations which no child should logically be a part of by running with active members of the police force.
* GratuitousJapanese: The tribes' names are derived from [[MeaningfulName relevant]] Japanese words, often modified with XtremeKoolLetterz. Some examples include (note: "<" means "derived from"):
** Kei'zatsu (police) < keisatsu ("police")
** Kuzuri (medics) < kusuri ("medicine")
** Tensai (scientists) < tensai ("genius")
** Zobo'shi (firefighters) < shouboushi ("firefighter")
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Botch likes to do this with his GrapplingHookPistol hand.
* GroundhogDayLoop: "Crontab Trouble".
* FantasticCasteSystem: Kei'zatsu are police, Tensai are scientists, Kuzuri are medics, and so on.
* HealingHands: Penny.
* LawOfChromaticSuperiority: Spin is red and the fastest bot in Flip City.
* LawfulStupid: "The Do-Right Module" has the team forced to behave this way, or [[ElectricTorture they get shocked]].
* MeaningfulName: Spin spins, Tinny is a tiny tin (as [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Lance), Pounder pounds things, Cable (presumably) comtains cables, Vertex is angular, Macro is big, and Botch screws everything up.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: "Scorched" has several characters get stuck between robot and sphere modes, rendering them pretty helpless.
* ShoutOut: Pounder gives the command "[[{{Transformers}} Roll out!]]" at least once.
* SpiderTank: Vertex.
* TheBigGuy: Pounder is the biggest of the Kei'zatsu.
* TransformingMecha: Everyone.
* WorldInTheSky: Flip City.
