Sushi Pack is a children's Saturday morning cartoon featuring a team of items from a sushi menu, jolted to life thanks to a bolt of [[LightningCanDoAnything lightning]]. The Pack consists of Tako (octopus), Maguro (tuna), Kani (crab), Ikura (salmon roe) and Wasabi, who together battle evildoers and learn life lessons. They live in an organic donut shop with their human friend and [[{{Mentors}} mentor]] Ben. Despite the superhero element of the story, violence is used only as a last resort. The show is produced by American Greetings, [=DiC=] Entertainment, and Tom Ruegger.

!!Contains examples of the following:

* AchillesHeel: Heat is their only weakness. Except with Wasabi, who can take the heat, but can't stand extreme cold.
* AesopAmnesia: The cast frequently ends up offending Wasabi and needing to apologize.
* AnAesop: Most episodes had one, with them ranging from "Be careful with your words; they can hurt." to "Too much TV is bad for you."
* {{Animesque}}: A mix of this and regular cartoon style.
* AnthropomorphicObjects: The main characters are assorted kinds of sushi and hot mustard that have been uplifted via lightning.
* ArentYouForgettingSomeone: In "Sushis of a Certain Stature," the Pack think that the town is putting up a statue of them, since it's announced as "Wharf City's Greatest Hero." It's actually of Kato Platypus, who was more active years earlier.
* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: Volta from "Starring Ikura"
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Ikura in "A Very Big Deal"
* BadassInDistress: Satellightning's return episode involves him needing to be rescued from the bottom of the sea. Bear in mind this is someone who [[CurbStompBattle schooled]] the police, the army, and The Pack [[LetsYouAndHimFight when they fought him]] in his debut episode.
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: Sir Darkly. He appears to be a manifestation of evil, so it's [[JustifiedTrope justified]].

* BlushSticker: Kani, Maguro, and Mochi Mochiato.
* CardboardPrison: The only villain shown consistently in jail is The Collector.
* CareBearStare: Maguro occasionally uses her mental powers in this way.
* CarnivoreConfusion: Played rather disturbingly in that the Pack actually ''remembers'' their past lives as animals (save Wasabi, who was a plant instead). This means that not only should they remember ''dying'', but somebody was actually cruel enough to slaughter intelligent, talking animals.
* CityOfAdventure: Wharf City.
* CollectorOfTheStrange: One villain called, appropriately, The Collector.
** TheCollector: "Collect 'Em All".
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Titanium Chef punishes Mochi Mochiato by having her teammates ridicule her.
* EasyImpersonation: In "The Wrong Sushi," Tako, Maguro, Kani, and Wasabi are convicted of a crime, despite presented video evidence showing what is obviously The Legion of Low Tide made up to look like the Pack.
* EdibleThemeNaming: Each of the members of the Pack has a name relating to what food they were before the lightning strike.
* EnemyMine: With Unagi in "Lights On, Lights Off" and "The Thing That Wasn't There".
* EnemyToAllLivingThings: Sir Darkly.

'''Toro''': We can barely tolerate ourselves.
* ICanSeeMyHouseFromHere: "A Very Big Deal"

When they confront him, he denies having anything to do with it.
