* GoldfishPoopGang: Flosshead and Vinny are good examples later on, when the former became a petty {{Troll}} whose evil acts amount to nothing more than PokeThePoodle.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Flanderization}}: Done intentionally.
** Seth was mostly a NiceGuy in earlier episodes, with only occasional bouts of snarkiness. By Season 4, he is planned to become [[TookALevelInJerkass just a male version of]] [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Lois Griffin]].
** Meanwhile, Tim Tim's short fuse is being slowly phased out in favor of a more perverted persona.
** Flosshead was less evil early on. Later on, he's become a supreme {{Jerkass}} who goes out of his way to torment Tim Tim.


* AllAdultAnimationIsSouthPark: A variant. 95% of the non-original characters come from either WesternAnimation, {{Anime}} or VideoGames with cartoonist designs. The fic itself loves BlackComedy, [[CutawayGag Cutaway Gags]], [[ShoutOut pop-culture references]] and sexual humor.
* AllMenArePerverts: Most of the males on the show (most notably Vinny, Barney and Seth himself) are perverts to some extent.
* AmbiguouslyBi:
** In "Save the Grotto", there is a scene where Vinny makes out with a cardboard cut-out of Chris Hemsworth, but is also a DirtyKid known to hit on grown women.
** Seth and Tim Tim share a lot of HoYay scenes, but are married to Misty and May, respectively.
* AuthorAvatar: Seth, to some extent. Him and [=KalloFox34=] are both liberal atheists who have the same taste in pop-culture. What sets him apart from other fanfiction examples is that he's a ButtMonkey who does have his flaws (sarcasm, lack of a backbone, perversion, alcoholism, obsession with TV, etc.) that keep him out of GaryStu territory.
* BannedEpisode: In-Universe example in "Bowlin' Again, Naturally". At the beginning of the episode, Seth and Tim Tim are watching a banned episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', where Tommy and Chuckie watch ''[[ShowWithinAShow Lonely Space Vixens]]''. [[BlackComedy The episode ends with Chuckie accidentally shooting Angelica after finding a gun concealed under his couch seat]].
* BlatantLies: This gem from "Bowlin' Again, Naturally":
-->'''Carter:''' "Seth? SETH! Wake up! You’re supposed to be inspecting the Poké Balls!"
-->'''Seth:''' "I know, I know. I cut my eye yesterday and it's making it hard to keep my eyes open."
-->'''Carter:''' "Really? How?"
-->'''Seth:''' "I kinda got into a BarBrawl at the Blotto Grotto."
* BrainyBrunette: Seth is usually this.



* {{Expy}}: Flosshead was intentionally modeled after [[WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan Bowser Junior]], with his bratty behavior and {{Jerkass}} antics.
* ExtremeDoormat: Vinny, Flosshead's best friend/partner in crime. Even after he terrible things Flosshead does, Vinny forgives him routinely.

to:

* {{Expy}}: DoesNotLikeMen:
** Officer Jenny hates men, frequently arresting Seth and Tim Tim over the slightest indiscretions, while granting Misty and May KarmaHoudini status.
** [[WesternAnimation/{{Daria}} Ms. Barch]] is naturally this.

* ExtremeDoormat: ExtremeDoormat:
**
Vinny, Flosshead's best friend/partner in crime. Even after he terrible things Flosshead does, Vinny forgives him routinely.routinely.
** Seth himself is also an extreme doormat. While he sometimes gets angry at Misty, he usually forgives her. He also rarely stands up for Misty when [[ObnoxiousInLaws Kay and Arnold]] pick on her.



* {{Greed}}: A lot of Flosshead's antics are fueled by money.



* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Tim Tim gives a brutal one to Flosshead in "Trouble Date".

to:

* NiceGuy:
** Seth, though not without flaws, is cool-tempered, (usually) selfless and when he does something wrong, he will try to fix it.
** Tim Tim is one of the only characters who ''doesn't'' abuse [[ButtMonkey Seth]], and is usually amiable until he's provoked.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Tim Tim gives a brutal one to Flosshead in "Trouble Date".Date".
