* AllHallowsEve
* AnimalTropes
** AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Agent Mitzy is pink.

* ComedySeries
* ConeOfShame: It is revealed that the device was designed by dogs themselves - it is used by the communication teams for voice amplification.
* Economic and supply tropes:
** HeroInsurance: See StuffBlowingUp, below.
** HiddenSupplies: Everything in most homes with a dog is actually a hugely expensive piece of spy equipment.
** InfiniteSupplies: The spydogs use and lose lots of weapons and vehicles, but never have to collect taxes, bribe politicians, or rob banks to get money. Even [[TheLoad Skribble]] uses a howitzer to plow a backyard. [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys The funding source and industrial base that such a level of destruction and technology needs is never explained.]]
*** There was, however, an episode focused on the dogs' efforts to gather enough money to fund the building of (yet) another moon to replace the previous one after it was unknowingly punctured by an astronaut sticking a flag pole on it.
** TheMasquerade: Humans are the master of [[FailedASpotCheck being oblivious]].
** TravelCool, including lots and lots of [[CoolPlane cool planes]]. One transforms from a bunch of garbage into a rocket powered aircraft. Catastrophe's tail transforms into a pogo stick or a segway, depending on the situation.
** StuffBlowingUp: Almost every episode. If there's a spydog vehicle in an episode, it will usually be destroyed, captured, or out of control by the end of the episode.
** SwissArmyWeapon: Mitzy's bow is her [[TertiarySexualCharacteristics Tertiary Sexual Characteristic]], is a [[PrecisionGuidedBoomerang double bladed boomerang]], binoculars, and a circular saw. It must have {{Hammerspace}} and [[NoConservationOfEnergy an advanced battery in it or something]].
* HumansAreBastards: Because they use waterbowl communicators as toilets.
* TheCavalry
* GRatedDrug: catnip

* NeverSayDie: No matter how much "enemies" risk the lives of spydogs, spydogs usually [[TakeAThirdOption find a nonviolent solution]].
* RuleOfCool
* RuleOfCute
* RuleOfEmpathy: the fun invincible heroes lose only by not stopping Catastrophe's escape, and the antagonists are sympathetic enough that the spydogs find a nonviolent solution. Catastrophe lost his tail as part of his origin story.
* RuleOfFunny
* RuleOfPerception
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Mitzy and Erin have bows, and Ayanna has earrings.
* TuxedoAndMartini, except for the BARK Squad.
* WaifFu: Agent Mitzy

!! Episodes of this series provide examples of:
* CatsAreMean: Catastrophe is the BigBad.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: One of the twin girls in Porkzilla was never seen wearing these. Her shoe-wearing sister cameo'd in the other episodes, though.
* EvilIsHammy: Catastrophe.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Oh boy, where do we start?
** Creator/AdamWest as Dog Zero, [[TheMonkees Mickey Dolenz]] as Ralph, JimCummings as Catastrophe... hell, just check [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0204777/fullcredits the imdb page]].
* HypocriticalHumor: In episode DNA, cat-Ralph tells cat-Mitzy that she really needs to control the cat impulse to take a bath in public. He tears furniture. Dogs lick themselves in public also.
* MarriedToTheJob: The leader of the Spy Dogs got out of a LoveTriangle this way.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: All the antagonists, especially Catastrophe, because the name has "cat", his species, and is a correctly spelled, multi-syllable, non punctuated word meaning [[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/catastrophe?rdfrom=Catastrophe "large and disastrous event of great significance"]]
* MobileSuitHuman: Humanesks
* MonsterIsAMommy with PuppyDogEyes: A giant spider does this to Agent Mitzy. A bunny does this to Skribble.
* NonHumansLackAttributes: Spydogs laugh at [[BigBad Catastrophe]] for having a naked behind... only when he's more dressed than usual. We see on Mitzy's [[ToplessnessFromTheBack naked butt in her shower scene]] ... nothing naughty. All that Agent Ralph must do to get dressed is to put on a collar.
-->''(Ralpha has just gotten out of the shower and is completely naked)''\\
'''Dog Zero:''' Ralph...put some clothes on.\\
''(Ralph blushes and puts his collar on)''\\
'''Dog Zero:''' That's better.
* TheSlowWalk: A giant spider tries to do this to Agent Mitzy. [[NoSell It doesn't work]].
* TakeThat and CrowningMomentOfFunny: In "Being", Mitzy warehouses an incredibly [[BornLucky lucky]], silent, and charismatic runaway SuperPrototype MobileSuitHuman "mindless automaton", "Chauncy", by making him the President of the United States.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Catastrophe tries this in DNA; because Mitzy and Ralph are biologically cats, Catastrophe welcomes them into his cat-based world government.
* WeNeedADistraction: Agent Mitzy does this to a giant spider. She uses an eggplant.
* YouWillBeAssimilated: "Catastrophe" tries this with corrupt flea dip in episode DNA, but it gets reversed. Catastophe is temporarily turned into a dog.
* StuffBlowingUp: For example, in "B.A.R.K", a military unit of spydogs uses plastic explosive to demolish [[spoiler: a flimsy staircase, and replace it just in time. They use a KillSat to topple a human skateboarder. They self-defeatingly send him flying past the person that they were trying to protect; the principal deflects him with her [[PlotArmor character shields]]. They use a folding bridge to help the principal over a crack in a sidewalk, uselessly making it larger with a mortar first. They also use a SniperRifle and a rocket propelled grenade to clear garbage and a ketchup truck from the principal's path. [[HeroInsurance They lay waste to the city]], and the human driver of the truck barely escapes.]]
* VillainExitStageLeft: Catastrophe does this in every episode in which he is prominent.
