* KickTheDog: The D'Angelos come off as uptight and pompous, but they '''really''' lose whatever likability once you hear the things they have to say about Willy's family. (Who they've never even met!) It's impossible to blame Willy for flipping his lid like he does.

* IJustWantToBeNormal: Willy is thoroughly excited to be living a normal life and is so worried that his dad will ruin that chance for him and he pretty much tries to pretend they aren't related. He eventually grows past this but never stops wanting to do things that normal kids do instead of using his family's wealth.

** Taken UpToEleven with Angela D'Angelo's parents, who assume Willy's mother is some tramp and gold digger despite just seeing her from a distance once, and Willy's only hope of dating their daughter was to pretend he had different parents (which was blown out of the water once they started making comments about how awful the Zillas were).

* InTheBlood: Willy ''is'' a good musician, he just prefers a simple trumpet and more classic songs. Likewise, Serenity got her dad's materialism, though she's more bratty with it, and Willy seems to get his sense of understanding from his mother.
** Rock's own father is revealed to be a prominent classical musician, meaning musical talent really ''does'' run in the Zilla bloodline.
** Rock's mother is a closet biker, explaining where he got his wild side from.

* {{Paparazzi}}: Scoop is one who constantly hangs about the Zilla household trying to get embarrassing photo's of Rock to ruin his life. This is because of an incident he had with the star years ago that resulted in Scoop being unable to get work for any real paper and being forced to work for the tabloids.
** Rock even though he chases him likes having Scoop about since it means he's still famous enough to warrant Paparazzi.
