** While their weaponry is effective, it doesn't help that most people they run into, if armed at all, have [[{{BFG}} bigger guns then theirs]]. Not to mention [[CoolShip bigger ships]]. And usually [[OverlyLongGag bigger brains.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: [[spoiler: After witnessing Ghandizen crush one of his many would-be assassins, a panicky Zosky says that he and Kaput have lost their luggage in the astroport and are looking for the lost and found, and Kaput asks for some orange juice. Without any hesitation, Ghandizen asks his assistant to help the duo out (and give Kaput some orange juice)]].

Added DiffLines:

* FatAndSkinny: Kaput (fat) and Zosky (skinny).


* PottyEmergency: Kaput had one during an episode where they went to a planet that seemed to be a barren wasteland. It's only after he starts relieving himself that he and Zosky realize that they've landed on Isn't That Precious, a planet full of invisible aliens. At the end of the episode, as they're flying away in their ship, Kaput says [[HereWeGoAgain he needs to go pee again.]]



* RecycledScript: One episode has the duo conquer a planet, only discover all its inhabitants fleeing because the planet is about to explode at sundown, and Kaput and Zosky try to follow suit, only for the planet to blow up beneath them (they were fine). A later episode is just this one with new dialogue, changing the plot to the planet, now a popular tourist destination, being deemed unpopular and all the natives fleeing to avoid being unpopular themselves.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Kaput's gun and hair are coloured red, which fits since he's a BloodKnight. Zosky's gun and antennae are yellow, the colour of caution (since he's the strategist of the duo).
* CoolShip: Averted with the duo's ship, which is tiny and seems to barely fit the two of them (though it seems to have some degree of Hammerspace built into it).



* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Needless to say, the two of them have had about as much success in conquering worlds as WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain. They have actually succeeded on some occasions, but it never seems to stick and by the end of an episode they're always back to roaming the galaxy.



* FlatWorld: One planet the duo visits coin-shaped.



** While their weaponry is effective, it doesn't help that most people they run into, if armed at all, have bigger guns then theirs. Not to mention bigger ships. And usually [[OverlyLongGag bigger brains.]]
