* ObligatorySwearing: The Dutch can be quite unashamedly foul-mouthed, but ''New Kids'' takes this UpToEleven by sometimes using swear words as full stops (unless "jonge" = "boy" serves as a full stop).

** This is even more hilarious in the German dub which tries to translate Dutch expletives ''literally''. The translation of "kut", the most common swear word in ''New Kids'', alternates between what amounts to "cunt" and what amounts to "pussy" while always meaning the same.


Added DiffLines:

* RichLanguagePoorLanguage: In the German dub, the New Kids are dubbed by their own actors, thick Dutch accents and all. Everyone else has proper German voice-actors.


* CordonBleughChef: Henk, owner of [[GreasySpoon 't Pleintje]]. He deep-fries bun rolls and Bounty bars, both while they're still in their wrapping. His typical Dutch food seems to be okay, though.



* DrivesLikeCrazy: The Red One in ''New Kids: Turbo'' where he's renamed Crazy Mongo and turns out to be a truck driver. [[spoiler:He ends up taking out the entire special force at the end by [[CarFu running them over with a beer truck]]. Whether he did that intentionally remains unclear.]]



* GreasySpoon: 't Pleintje is the Dutch variant of this, offering a variety of typical Dutch fast food as take-aways. The snack bar was a a real place not in Maaskantje, but in Schijndel (see SmallTownRivalry) before it was demolished in early 2020.



* IntimateTelecommunications: In ''New Kids Turbo'', despite having a girlfriend, Rikkert is still a virgin and so desperate that he tries to ask a phone sex lady to come to Maaskantje for a date.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Whenever someone steps on a street in Maaskantje, [[CarFu they're run over]].


* EightiesHair: Where do we begin with the mullets and mustaches?



* CarFu: A common way to kill characters in the series off is to have them run over by a car, which is later lampshaded in the second movie.

* ImpressivePyrotechnics: Always commented by Richard, for example, when he watches a gas station blow up while sitting right opposite it or [[spoiler:a missile strikes Schijndel in ''Turbo'']].

* MakingLoveInAllTheWrongPlaces: Rikkert (technically, but still) loses his virginity while standing on a public sidewalk.



* SexAsRiteOfPassage: Rikkert feels rather uneasy about still being a virgin, so it's a great relief for him to lose his virginity with his girlfriend even if said "sex" only consists of putting it in once for a few seconds.

* CoolCar: Rikkert's Opel Manta B, even though it's been wrecked, towed away, and eventually blown up.

* {{Defictionalization}}: Even though the snackbar the five buy their food from has been there since before the series started, it's currently filled with New Kids merchandise and is the hub for many fans of the series.



* GenreShift: The first two seasons resembled a sketch show being viewed on a television set by the five New Kids. The third season, however, dropped the sketches entirely and focused on the five New Kids going about their daily business.

* UltimateJobSecurity: In one of the sketches, Gerrie takes a forklift from his work, which ultimately ends up with a coworker getting killed as a result. Despite this, he keeps his job until the first movie, where he looses it by driving the forks through a television.
** Also applicable for Adrie the cop, who loses his job in the first film by running over a family with a police van. He is later given his job back in the second film, only to lose it again.
** Even for Robbie and Richard, both of whom are maintenance workers at the local park. None of them are seen doing any actual work and are finally fired in Turbo after their boss catches Richard's dog gnawing at a hoe.
* ZombieApocalypse: Occurs in the second movie, as well as an episode in the third season.

* PoliceAreUseless: Ardie, seemingly the only cop in town, is particularly inept at his job, showing this by accidentally shooting himself with his own gun, running people over ''(see Car Fu above)'', constantly trashing the squad car in Nitro, and letting the New Kids constantly push him around.
