Super Wings provides examples of:

  • Added Alliterative Appeal:
    • Jett "I'm pumped for the president's pink palace" at start of Team Tango.
    • Dizzy's "rescue rope" does a "power pull" while the upgrade does a "power pull plus"
  • Alliterative Title: "Large Little Laddie" and "Team Tango".
  • Butt-Monkey: Jett & Donnie.
  • Catchphrase: LOTS.
    • Jett: “I’m Jett. On time, every time”.
    • Also Jett: “Jet speed!”
    • Dizzy: "I’m Dizzy and I’m rescue ready."
    • Donnie: “Donnie can-do”.
  • Feud Episode: The Right Kite, Fiesta! Fiesta! & Doubles Trouble
  • Genki Girl: Sky, her job could be a lot more sedentary if she wanted.
  • Humongous Mecha: The Wings pilot these in the season 2 OP. The Wings themselves arguably count too, when they're in their robot modes.
  • Heart Symbol: On Dizzy's arms.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Happens in "Think Big" when the 3 boys stay in their robot suits and change into humanoid form while Dizzy gets out of hers (leaving it in vehicle mode) to go aerial.

  • In-Series Nickname: In "Tip of the Iceberg", Jett says "I got you, Diz" to Dizzy.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: A non-animal example. Plenty of Sentient Vehicles are seen co-existing with humans.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: Usually an animal native to the area is seen with the kid of the week, to tell more about the geographical area to the audience.
  • Parental Substitute: Sky replaces Jimbo in season 2.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Dizzy the pink helicopter is a girl while 3 of the boys (Chase, Jerome and Paul) are blue.
  • Rhymes on a Dime:
    • In "Tip of the Iceberg" (appropriately named first example since Jett rhymes every episode) "Tippy likes it nippy" and "take the stairs baby bears"
    • The episode "Alp Help", where Dizzy uses "Reel of Steel" and Todd says "begin spin!"
  • Sentient Vehicle: The Wings are all sentient aircraft (justified as they are Transforming Mecha). As well, many of the other vehicles (cars, boats etc.) featured in the series are sentient.

  • Signing Off Catchphrase: “Super Wings! We deliver!” is said at the end of every episode by Jett and whichever Super Wing helped him in the episode.
  • Spaceship Girl: Astra
  • Super Drowning Skills: Every Wing except Mira, Jett and Paul.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Dizzy, one of the female Super Wings, aside from being pink, has noticeable eyelashes. Astra, another female Super Wing, has eyelashes and what looks like a curl of “hair” between her eyes.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Mira (Tomboy) and Dizzy (Girly Girl).
  • Transforming Mecha: The Wings can shift into humanoid form, Transformers-style.
  • Victory Pose: Astra is shown doing one in the season 2 end credits.
  • World Tour: Not necessarily a "tour", but Jett travels to different places around the world and meets different kids there.
