"You Go Girl!"SheZow is about 12-year-old Guy Hamdon and his adventures after finding and putting on his deceased Aunt Agnes' super powered ring, inheriting her Super Hero alter ego, SheZow◊. Unable to take it off, he must now fight crime whether he wants or not. In a dress. At least he doesn't have to go it alone, getting help from his best friend, Maz, who acts as his sidekick (with differing alter egos for each episode) while Guy's sister Kelly helps from the "She-lair" with Sheila the Supercomputer. Guy must also keep his identity secret from his policeman father, who has always thought SheZow was an arrogant show-off (due in part to SheZow's popularity; she has comic books and fan clubs!).Despite (or because of) various anti-LGBT groups protesting the premiere (although the show does not address issues of transsexualism or homosexuality,) the show continues to receive high ratings, according to creator Obie-Scott Wade's Twitter account.
Ambiguous Gender: SheZap sounds male, but is referred to as a she. Though considering his/her origins SheZap might not even have a gender.
Ascended Fangirl: Kelly is the head of the SheZow Fan Club. She ends up as SheZow's mentor, though she would much rather become the real thing.
Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted royally. Beside the obvious, of course, SheZow's archenemy Tara's signature attack is blowing huge balls of sticky mucus out of her nose and throwing them.
Blessed with Suck: All of Tara's powers are disgusting. Which might have something to do with why she never became the media darling she thought she deserved to be, regardless of the good works she actually did.
Brain in a Jar: Megamonkey owns one. Despite the brain being alive and conscious, he only uses it as a holder for the bathroom key.
Comes Great Responsibility: Apart from being forced to wear a dress, high heels and really tacky leopard print any time danger rears its head, SheZow has a pretty strict set of over 2000 rules that must be followed. The punishment for, say, stealing a couple hundred quid, is to shrink into nothing. Another rule says SheZow can't back down from a superpower challenge.
Corporate-Sponsored Superhero: Aside from the comics and merch, Guy tries to go for direct sponsorship by FizzBurp but all the junk food messes with his she-tabolism.
Crossdresser: Not intentional on Guy's part - the ring just requires the wearer (regardless of gender) to wear the female-tailored superhero costume.
Darker and Edgier: Inspired by fellow superhero Caped Koala, SheZow tries to make the jump to Graphic Novels in "Black Is The New Pink", but it just ends up screwing up her powers. Then, the Caped Koala turns out to be a big fan of SheZow's comics!
Deal with the Devil: In "She Pal", SheZow makes a deal with SheZap to throw off a nosy reporter. Immediately subverted when they both double-cross each other, throw the whole thing out the window, and just go at it.
Demonic Dummy: BrouHaHa appears to be one of these, though he doesn't bother even pretending to be inanimate.
Description Cut: At the beginning of "Mr. Nice Guy" Maz states that he's never seen Guy cry. Cut to him at the theatre with Kelly and is showing legitimate emotional impact from the film.
Disguised in Drag: Guy wears a female superhero costume to fight crime and save the day. The public believes him to be the previous SheZow, despite his obviously being much younger. Either she was very small, or some magic effect prevents recognition.
Distaff Counterpart: A girl named Gal from an Alternate Dimension is able to transform into DudePow, a male superhero with virtually identical powers and gadgets. Said alternate universe also has a female version of Maz, named Mayzie, Gal's brother is also named Kelly, and Dudley is DudePow's Supercomputer.
Fun with Acronyms: S.I.C.K. stands for "The Society of Incredibly Callous Kriminals".
Tara also forms a supervillain group called The "Get Rid Of SheZow Society".
The heroes get in on it too with the "Super Hero Action Guild".
Getting Crap Past the Radar: The episode "SheZow Happens!" had several jokes involving the word "shit", including the title. There's also SheZow's triumphant "Mine's bigger!" (referring to his hand) the first time he uses the Heavy-Handed She-Slap, and, from the Tooth Fairy episode, "May I play with your wand?" Guy's Curse Cut Short in "Guy n Doll", at least I thought he was going to say Jack-Asses.
The entire premise of the show can count, depending on your viewpoint.
"You should write an article about me and my nuts!"
Gender Bender: Surprisingly averted, although there were a number of people who were/are confused on whether the ring caused Guy to become female when transformed as SheZow.
Older Than They Look: Aunt Agnes was in her seventies at the youngest (and that's assuming she was a teenager when she fought BrouHaHa in 1952) but still appeared youthful, at least when she was SheZow.
Shout-Out: The show is usually pretty spare with pop cultural references, but "SheZow Meets DudePow" slips in a shout out to The Big Lebowski, of all things. There are also a ton of them, mostly to other superheroes, in the museum scene in "Black is the New Pink".
Sidekick: Maz, who can't stick to one persona every episode.
Secret Identity: Maz (his best friend), Kelly, Sheila, and DudePow are the only people who know about Guy's alter ego. In particular, he must keep it hidden from his father, a policeman who dislikes SheZow for being a "show off".
Serious Business: Comic books (or rather, graphic novels) in the episode "Black is the New Pink"
Sibling Rivalry: Between Guy and Kelly, enhanced by Guy's possession of the ring. Also, possibly between Boxter and Agnes, if they were in fact siblings, although Boxter wouldn't have realized it.
Sickly Green Glow: SheZap's skin glows green to reference his nuclear-powered origin.
Something We Forgot: The end of "Coldfinger". A variation on the usual trope in that we skip far enough ahead that the trapped character has escaped, but the implication is that she was there for a while.
Heart Is an Awesome Power: Guy's she-latability allows him to know his enemy's next move before they make it. He's also able to take down two villains without throwing a punch by seeing their problems and talking to them about it.
In a Single Bound: SheZow initially can only do super leaps, leading to Guy complaining about not being to fly. He finally learned how to fly in the episode, "Transformation Overload".
Make Me Wanna Shout: The Sonic Scream is probably SheZow's strongest power, doing anything from breaking every piece of glass in a five-mile radius to destroying really big boogers to being a pinpoint concussive blast.
Fartillery: As Guy has demonstrated on several occasions, the Sonic Scream works with burps too.
Size Shifter: Part of SheZow's powerset. Usually limited to making a hand grow for the heavy-handed super she-slap - but when ill or emotionally unbalanced, SheZow's other body parts seem to grow or shrink in size, too.
Spider-Sense: One of Guy's powers is the ability to sense when danger is present, which aside from letting him dodge things like the Trope Namer also automatically transforms him into SheZow. (He changes back when the danger is past.) It's called SheSP. Note this makes SheZow one of the few heroes with more than one way of transforming.
Word of God said that Guy, Maz and Kelly are all Canadian.
Wholesome Crossdresser: Guy wears a female superhero costume to fight crime and save the day. Although he didn't take it well initially, Guy Hamdon doesn't seem too bothered that SheZow is his superhero alter ego afterwards.
