* IDontKnowMortalKombat: One episode guesting Gene's bandmates Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer has the three of them try their hand in ''RockBand'' (specifically, and obviously enough, "Detroit Rock City"). Let's just say it didn't go over as well as it usually does when they're on stage.

!!Tropes:
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Shannon, less so (except when she dragged her 21 year old son, Nick, to a strip club on his birthday), but ''Gene'', hoo boy.
* BigFancyHouse
* BumblingDad
* CerebusSyndrome: With Gene's affairs, the 'will-they-or-won't-they' wedding and the later adoption plotline, the began to suffer from this in later seasons.
* CoolShades: Gene wear these in public.
* CouchGag: One of the most literal examples outside [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons the]] TropeNamer.
* DaddyDidntShow: Gene's busy schedule keeps him from attending some important events in his kids' lives.
* DaddysGirl: Gene's relationship with Sophie.
* DeadpanSnarker: Nick, so very, very much.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Gene. On one occasion he took a cell phone call ''on a DrivingTest''. Shannon, if anything is ''worse''.
* DumbBlonde : Tracy. It tends to rub off on Shannon when they're together.
-->" Tasers and wine don't mix."
* {{Gasshole}}: Sophie has been seen burping on several occasions. In one episode she did so to deliberately gross out a guy she was on a date with, since he was [[YourCheatingHeart her friend's boyfriend trying to cheat on her]].
* IDontKnowMortalKombat: One episode guesting Gene's bandmates Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer has the three of them try their hand in ''RockBand'' (specifically, and obviously enough, "Detroit Rock City"). Let's just say it didn't go over as well as it usually does when they're on stage.
* HorribleCampingTrip: 'Alpha Male'. It involves a snake, a bear, and a park ranger with a fire extinguisher.
* InsistentTerminology: Gene and Shannon are ''not'' married. Shannon is ''not'' Gene's wife. Gene is not the least bit shy of correcting people who make this mistake ''in front of Shannon''.
** They are married now, so the Trope will not apply to new episodes
* MommasBoy: Gene is a self proclaimed Momma's boy who calls his mother at least once a day.
* OverlyLongTongue: Gene Simmons. Nick too. If Sophie inherited it she's not showing it off on television.
* RunningGag: People running over stuff in the driveway.
* PapaWolf: Gene is ''very'' protective of 15-year-old Sophie.
* SkinnyDipping: [[FanServiceExtra A new hot girl friend of Nick's does this in his first week of college to lighten his mood,]] [[AboveTheInfluence Nick can't join her because he has a girlfriend at the time.]] This is also a part of a friend's film class video in the episode where Gene was out filming a spanish commercial.
* TurnOutLikeHisFather: Gene is a workaholic rock star. Nick is a workaholic rock star. Nick's girlfriend isn't very happy about that.
* UglyGuyHotWife: And to think that they were together for ''twenty-eight years'' before he made it official...
* UglyGuysHotDaughter: Sophie even models.
** Nick, despite looking like a young version of his father, counts as the Ugly Guy's Hot Son.
