Added DiffLines:

* ArbitrarySkepticism: Many of the Nektons express a disbelief in kaiju in season two, ''well'' after having encountered several beforehand.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialGill: Both the Nektons' face-covering oxygen masks (no scuba tanks) and mouth-fitted rebreathers count.


Added DiffLines:

* RippedFromTheHeadlines: "Whale of a Tale" posits that Creator/HermanMelville based ''Literature/MobyDick'' on a real sperm whale which continues to live into the present day.

Added DiffLines:

* DistinguishingMark: Jeffrey has a scarred tail, subtly helping him stand out from other Yellowback Basslets, which becomes important in "Song of the Siren" when the Nektons need to find him out in the open ocean populated by similar fish.


* AmbiguouslyBrown: The Nektons. WordOfGod says they're mixed race.

Added DiffLines:

* TomeOfEldritchLore: The Efemicron, a compendium of ancient Lemurian maps to places you should really stay away from.


* BigBad: Season 1 had Proteus as an enemy to the Nektons in finding Lemuria. Season 2 had him demoted to [[spoiler:BigBadWannabe to make Alpheus more threatening]]

* GiantEnemyCrab: Well, the word "enemy" may be a bit of a stretch, but the giant hermit crabs the Nektons encounter in one episode DID [[spoiler:take a man's fridge and water tank. Even if it was to use them as new shells]].

* LockingMacGyverInTheStoreCupboard: A weapon smuggler does this when she locks Kaiko in the engine room; Fontaine remarks how utterly ''stupid'' it is to lock an AcePilot in the engine room of their vehicle. Similarly, trying to fight someone who was born on a submarine on said submarine doesn't go well for the smuggler as Fontaine casually watches the smuggler get thrown around by her mother's driving.



* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: The mining executive in the episode "Bloop." While initially seeming like a CorruptCorporateExecutive he does offer to stop if the Nektons get him proof of what's causing the titular Bloop. Once they get genuine evidence of the source and that his automated mining machine will destroy it if allowed to continue, he immediately orders the mining to be halted. When the machine refuses to stop (due to unintentional damage caused by the Nektons attempting to slow the machine earlier), he gives them the schematics for it and is willing to accept whatever damage the Nektons have to do in order to halt the runaway digger.
