* ForcedIntoTheirSundayBest: In preparation for Bob and Dot's wedding, Matrix is being fitted for a suit. In frustration he rips off the suit's sleeves before becoming envious of Bob, who will be wearing a Guardian dress uniform.

* YearInsideHourOutside: Time moves much faster inside a game relative to the outside world, which itself runs at a high rate compared to the world The User comes from. Season Three includes a TimeSkip where Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] grew into adults wandering the games looking to get back to Mainframe, suggesting it's been the equivalent of 10-15 years. When they came across Turbo, the Prime Guardian, he explained the time discrepancy and that it's actually only been upwards of a year and a half since they left Mainframe.

** In the first two seasons, despite being the most capable member of the main cast when it comes to fighting off threats, Bob was also the goofiest in terms of personality. Cue the second season's last 4 episodes, which take a darker turn and conclude with his removal from the main cast, resulting to his absence in the even darker Season 3. Of course, [[spoiler: he was eventually brought back mid-Season 3, but only after undergoing CharacterDevelopment that made him more serious and less of a goofball.]] This gets played with in Season 4, when the return of classic Bob midway coincides with the show adopting a lighter and more comical tone reminiscent of the first seasons. [[spoiler: Then classic Bob is revealed to be Megabyte in disguise, and the shows undergoing a darker ToneShift again.]]

* MagicalEye: Matrix in the third season. When he uses his MagicalEye, '''watch out''', it usually means he is about to delete something. ''Messily.'' Can also be seen as a form of CallingYourAttacks, as its animation is used as a warning to the audience that he is going into Badass Mode.

* MegatonPunch: Slash and Matrix use non-comical versions of this when you really piss them off (though the latter may just delete you before getting to that point).


As part of the show's growing mythology and story, the Guardians from the Supercomputer proved to be more KnightTemplar than previously let on, pushing Mainframe into an uneasy [[StrangeBedfellows alliance with both viruses]], and after two unexpected losses for the good guys, a TimeSkip had Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] grow into young adults as TheLancer and an ActionGirl.

Added DiffLines:

** The Playstation game, ''Countdown to Chaos''. Because it wasn't held to the same content standards as the show itself, the game features ''much'' darker themes and events, including Megabyte acting like a genocidal dictator, extremely graphic violence, onscreen deaths, brutal GameOver cutscenes, Hexidecimal nearly ''raping'' Bob, and the ''Normal'' ending (that is, the one you're most likely to get before unlocking the NewGamePlus style level select) involves [[spoiler:Megabyte and Hex slaughtering millions of innocents, ''including'' '''Enzo'''.]]


* AmazonChaser: [=AndrAIa=] is a beautiful, lithe woman who [[TheDulcineaEffect has men falling over themselves to die for her]] after they see her kicking ass in combat. Captain Capacitor actually comments that her boldness and bravery are part of what would make her so hard to lose. Of course, the fact that unlike [[NoGuyWantsAnAmazon Princess Bula]], she's an attractive and curvy young lady in a {{Stripperific}} certainly helps.

* AreTheseWiresImportant: Enzo does this in Megabyte's fortress in Season 1.
* ArtEvolution: Midway through Season 2 they had a hardware upgrade that allowed more fluid and naturalistic movements, such as shoulders swaying forwards and backwards while walking (before the most expressive movement was Hexadecimal's SexyWalk). Season 3 jumped forward with textures like eyelashes and background items, as well as ''shadows'' (You would be surprised how much you miss them). Season 4 had a much more realistic sense of weight, instead being either too fast or too slow when jumping around.

** In "In the Belly of the Beast", Frisket get kidnapped by Megabyte after eating an Unformat Command he was seeking, but manages to break out with Enzo's help.
** In "The Crimson Binome", Bob gets kidnapped by the episode's eponymous character after this one decides to sell him for a price. From his cell, he warns them to release him before he makes more trouble than he's worth. When the captain refuses, he makes good on his threat, breaking out of his cell and crippling the ship, giving the rescue party led by Dot the chance to catch up. Made more impressive by the fact that [[BroughtDownToBadass he doesn't even have Glitch.]]

** Plenty in "Enzo the Smart", but special mention goes to Dumb Bob imitating Enzo's reboot gesture (to no avail, due to his icon not being on his forehead) and knocking himself down.
