----
!! This show provides examples of:
* AffectionateParody: Of ''Film/TheHangover''
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Ginger
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Zeke and Luther often will interrupt the show to explain, interject, or something else. It's also functions as a ConfessionCam.
* BrokenAesop: In "Cup Stacking". So, if my best friend shows talent in something that doesn't interest me, I should find his friends and scare them into abandoning my friend so he'll come crawling back?
* CaliforniaDoubling: For California itself. The show repeatedly points out its setting in Gilroy, CA (a town at the southern end of the [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco Bay Area]]), but it's very obviously filmed in [=SoCal=].
* CatchPhrase:
** Ginger repeatedly calls Zeke and Luther "pit-sniffers". In return, Zeke usually calls Ginger "mini-munch."
** Ginger also tends to say "Oh yeah, baby!" when things are going her way.
** Also, Kojo's "Watch out!" accompanied by a butt-slap.
** Poochie's "YAY!"
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Olivia completely disappeared following "Adventure Boy" and no mention has been made at all of her since. Her poster still hangs on Zeke's bedroom, however.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Luther and Ozzie, the latter of the ExtravertedNerd variety.
* {{Crossover}}:
** Zeke and Luther once appeared in a ''Series/PeterPunk'' episode.
** Also, Dale Davis appeared in ''Series/KickinIt''.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Lisa gets distracted by watching Zeke drink water, which causes her and Ginger to lose an academic competition against [[BookDumb Zeke]] and [[TheDitz Luther]].
* DemotedToExtra: Ginger in Season 3 due to Ryan Newman leaving the show. She still appears in five episodes, however, but unfortunately not the Finale.
* TheDitz: Luther, at times. Such as when he thinks a hospital bedpan is a ''guacamole bowl and asks if he can have one.''
* EnemyMine: Zeke and Ginger are forced into this to defeat Jumpsuit in "Law and Boarder".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Jumpsuit Johnson, Stinky Cast.
* {{Expy}}:
** It's pretty obvious that Ginger is the [[Series/PhilOfTheFuture Pim Diffy]] of the present day.
** Ginger is also very similar to [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Megan Parker]] (the show itself is often compared to Series/DrakeAndJosh).
* FanDisservice: Oswald's shorts are really '''really''' short [[{{Squick}} (shudder)]].
* FreeRangeChildren: And how!
* GRatedDrug: The "Nordic Blue" snow-cone syrup that was featured in one episode.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar:
** Luther was sagging in "Law and Boarder". And yes, they actually referred to the act as sagging.
** An entire episode was based on the plot of ''Film/TheHangover.''
** In one episode, a guy talked about stuffing bananas in his Wedge-o-Matic.
** In "Adventure Boy," when Kojo is trying to teach Zeke girl-grabbing tips, one of the hooking lines he uses is, [[DoubleEntendre "Your lips look kinda cold. Let me warm 'em up for you."]]
* TheGhost: Zeke's parents are mentioned but noticeably absent, even when the plot clearly calls for them.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Zeke and Luther, obviously.
* {{Jerkass}}: Most of characters show their jerkass side. Luther seems to be the exception in this trope (sometimes).
* KidCom
* KillerRobot: In "I, Skatebot"
* LadykillerInLove: Kojo, in "Sludge"
* LaughTrack: Mercifully averted (unlike [[Series/TheSuiteLifeofZackandCody several]] [[Series/PairOfKings other]] [[Series/ImInTheBand shows]] on its network).
* LawfulStupid: Deputy Dingle
* NameAndName
* {{Sexophone}}: Lisa tries to invoke this by getting a friend to play the saxophone to help her seduce Zeke.
* ShoutOut: To anyone who has watched ''Film/TheShining'', watch the Gingernator.
** Also, the B Plot of "Luther Leads" started with Ginger finding [[Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory a golden golf ball inside a donut]] and thus being named heir to the donut shop, complete with a SuspiciouslySimilarSong to "[[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory I've got a Golden Ticket]]". She was eventually refused because she couldn't stand training or donuts and intended to tear the place down and erect an office building.
* SitcomArchNemesis: The Plunk Brothers
* SkateHeavenIsAPlaceOnEarth: A rare non-gaming example.
* StalkerWithACrush: Lisa Grubner, Zeke's 12-and-a-half-year-old stalker.
** Stinky Cast is this to Ginger, but not to the same extreme.
* StoryArc: A good chunk of season 3 revolves around the boys skate careers picking up for real.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Kojo, to an insane degree.
* TotallyRadical: Advertisements hype its "skater lingo."
* UnusualEuphemism: Oh, my god. Watch the show.
* WorldOfHam: Arguably the best thing about the show.
