!!Tropes used:

* AchievementsInIgnorance: Skunk once managed to pull off a technique that Panda ''just made up'' in order to get some sleep.
* ActionGirl: Fox.
* AdobeFlash
* AmbiguouslyGay: Baboon; despite his sometimes effeminate actions, he obviously has a crush on Fox.
* AntiVillain: Surprisingly, Dragon could be seen as this if you look at the WhatTheHellHero down below.
* BadassBoast: Rabbit manages one when Baboon asks the classic "You and what army?" Rabbit's response? He flexes one arm, then the other, saying, "This [[IncrediblyLamePun army]] over here, and this [[AWorldWidePunomenon army]] over here.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Skunk is destined to defeat Dragon.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Fox and Rabbit.
* BigBad: Dragon.
* BigBrotherBully: Rabbit is mostly this to Skunk. There are times however when he titters on being a BigBrotherMentor. See JerkWithAHeartOfGold below.
* BigGuyLittleGuy: Ox and Bird, respectively.
* TheChosenOne: Skunk was given to Panda when he asked for help defeating Dragon.
* CoolBigSister: Fox to Skunk. She was taken in by Panda when her father was killed, and seems to view Skunk as a little brother.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Pig becomes "Master Pig", thanks to Rabbit's "octopus arm" weapon (a plunger attached to a rope, which Pig excels in using).
** Pig going nuts over truffles. It's amazing how much ass he can kick for the things.
* ADogNamedDog: Entire cast.
* TheDragon: Baboon. Ironically, his BigBad is a Dragon by the name of... you know darn well what.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* {{Expy}}: Skunk can be considered this in comparison to Po from Film/KungFuPanda and Goku from Early Manga/DragonBall.
* FallenHero: A rather tragic case of it. Dragon used to be a heroic guardian of the valley, but after falling a test from Heaven was punished. This caused him to turn into the monster he is today.
* {{Fartillery}}: Skunk, natch.
* FieryRedhead: Fox (she has red fur).
** She even has GreenEyes.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Rabbit has a poster of Fox in a Playboy-esque pose.
* {{Gossipy Hen|s}}: Actually a Gossipy Crane.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal bordering on PettingZooPerson: Fox, again.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Praying Mantis.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every episode title begins with "The Art of..."
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Rabbit.
* JustAStupidAccent: Baboon's Australian accent.
* ManiacMonkeys: Baboon and the monkey ninjas.
* {{Mooks}}: Baboon's army of ninja monkeys.
* NeverMyFault: Dragon's reason for his scarring and him blaming it on the Valley Animals and wishing to destroy the Valley in general. However, given what his punishment was, it can be mildly justified.
* {{Ninja}}: Ninja monkeys, of course!
* NoEnding: Although Skunk was built up to be destined to defeat Dragon someday, the series ended its run and no resolution became of Skunk's destiny. There have been rumors early after the series's completion that a movie was in the works to properly conclude the series, but after many years of no new info, it is most likely assumed that the idea was canned.
* PandaingToTheAudience: [[ShapedLikeItself Panda]].
* PaperFanOfDoom: Fox. Also, the other girls [[AndZoidberg and Skunk]], as part of the Art of the Fan-Fan.
* RashomonStyle: "The Art of Remembering" has Rabbit, Skunk, and Fox all telling Duck how Panda was kidnapped by Baboon, with Panda later telling Duck the truth. Each of the first three's tales have a unique visual style.
** Rabbit's story is DeliberatelyMonochrome (Limited Palette, with the red sky) and tells how the three of them were escorting Panda to negotiate a truce with Baboon. It also has Rabbit with a huge straw hat and wielding a sword (a ShoutOut to UsagiYojimbo perhaps?), and it's always raining.
** Fox's story looks like oriental scroll drawings, having Fox a beautiful ninja and involving Panda and the Silver Sword, useable by OnlyThePureOfHeart, being stolen. Although they win the sword back from Baboon in basically a round of VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution, Baboon escapes with Panda.
** Skunk's story is an [[SuddenVideogameMoment 8-bit video game]] where Panda is captured by a lure of food, along with each of the three of them after parodies of famous video games, including ''PacMan'' and ''SuperMarioBros''.
** Panda reveals the truth: [[spoiler:they were on a nature hike when Panda starting talking enthusiastically about bamboo, causing the others to fall asleep and [[AllJustADream dream up their individual stories]].]]
* ShapedLikeItself: One episode was titled "The Art of Art".
* SmellySkunk: Duh.
* SpeciesSurname: Species Full Name, actually.
* {{Tsundere}}: Rabbit.
* TooDumbToLive: Pig.
** Unless you give him a plunger with a rope attached to it.
* WhatTheHellHero: Yeah, he may have failed their test, but Heaven's punishment of Dragon was rather severe. Particularly given he was trying to use his powers to help others. Not only does this seem rather cruel, they ended up creating the series BigBad.
** It wasn't just failing a simple test. Dragon became so full of himself that he saw himself as being above all the other animals and was "punished for his arrogance." He was already on the road to being a BigBad. Being severely burned all over actually minimizes his roll. If he hadn't been burned, he would have already killed off all of the valley creatures, himself.
*** Not quite, He ASKED the heavens if he could use his powers and they didn't respond, he didn't "defy" the heavens because they didn't respond.
