!!Tropes Describing WildGrinders[=:=]

* AbusiveParents: Mr Hucksterball to his son Stubford. He makes no secret of the fact he can't even remember his son's name (or the word "son" for that matter). In one episode goes camping with his son "remotely" by giving him a laptop to connect with.
* AdobeFlash
* AnimateInanimateObject: Skateboards and other wheeled vehicles in "A Board Story".
* AuthorAvatar: Lil' Rob, if it wasn't obvious.
* AwesomeMcCoolName: [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Jack Knife]]
* BlackBestFriend: Jay Jay, though he acts more like a [[SassyBlackWoman Sassy Black Guy]].
* BuffySpeak: How Chip Fliggington describes Lil' Rob's trick in the beginning of Close-Up.
* ButtMonkey: Jack Knife
* CelebrityToons
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Mr. Hucksterball.
* CrossdressingVoices: Stubford is voiced by Erin Fitzgerald.
* EmoTeen: [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Emo Crys]]
* {{Expy}}: Lil' Rob's sister is ''very'' similar to [[PhineasAndFerb Candace]].
** Stubford is basically an unlikeable version of [[JohnnyTest Bling-Bling Boy]]
** Captain Grindstar is a superhero with a very Superman-esque backstory (though his home planet didn't end up exploding because of bad math).
* FatBastard: Stubford
* FiveManBand:
** TheLeader: Lil' Rob
** TheLancer: Meaty or Goggles on occasion.
** TheSmartGuy: Goggles and Jay Jay
** TheBigGuy: Spitball
** TheChick: Emo Crys

** TagalongKid: Jack Knife.
** SixthRanger: Flips.
* HatesBeingTouched: [[SuperOCD Jay Jay.]]
* IdenticalStranger: Prince Xavier to Jack Knife
* {{Jerkass}}: Stubford
* TheLoad: Stubford
* McNinja: Spitball
* {{Meganekko}}: Li'l Rob's sister.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Most of the characters, though this is averted with Lil' Rob -- his parents refer to him by his real name.
** Lackowski's is usually done in running gag, correcting Stubford it was Lackowski, not Lackey. (and Lil' Rob in "Shark Attack")
* TheOtherDarrin: Meaty, voiced by Sterling "Steelio" Brim in season 1, and by Lee Harrell in season 2. Meaty's new voice actor has a much higher combination of PhilLaMarr and Peter Rida Michail's which sounds nothing like Steelio's.
* PunnyName: '''Emo Crys''' (pronounced like "Chris").
* TheRival: Stubford likes to think of himself as this.
** Flips considers herself Lil' Rob's rival was well, though she's not much of a challenge for him.
* RuleOfCool: Any and all of the stunts the main cast attempt.
* SeriousBusiness:
** Skateboarding, for the Grinders.
** Glass unicorns, apparently. Each one is handcrafted, has a backstory and is treated as if it were very much alive. Emo Crys is an expert on the subject.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Both Prince Xavier and Stubford.
* SuperOCD: Jay Jay.
* TakeThat: "Close-Up" was a pretty big jab at Reality TV.
* TalkingAnimal: Meaty.
* VisualPun: In Sell-Out, Jack, (ButtMonkey) drew a monkey on his butt.
--> '''Jack Knife:''' [[DontExplaintheJoke Look! I made a butt monkey!]]
