Scienceburg Labs is a series created on the Random-ness Wiki about a group of scientists living their life, often getting into strange scenarios. Often, the series tries to be humorous, although a select few episodes have deeper plots.

This series contains the following tropes:

  • Absent-Minded Professor: Prof. Wright, and just about every other scientist in the lab.
  • Aerith and Bob: Human names when compared to Neptunian names can go this way.
  • Advertisement:
  • Aliens Speaking English: All the Neptunians that appear.
  • Artificial Limbs: Prof. Wright's right arm.
  • Berserk Button: Everybody has one, mentioned inside the show or outside the show, as it seems, with a possible exception of Dr. Occtoray.
  • Brand X: Used a lot, Crisples (Pringles), Winkies (Twinkies), Guava Co. (Apple), etc.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: Q-T, an adorable robot, who appears in the episode named after the character who gets thrown out by Prof. Wright and seeks to kill her.
  • God of Good: Well not a god... a Celestial Star Being. But close enough.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Prof. Wright has done karaoke and The Game of Life with the Grim Reaper.
  • Gonk: Barbara Styles, who is Scienceburg's Hair-stylist.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: The entire plot of episode 14, truly where Prof. Wright creates Mayor Fernando a pair of headphones which can turn off sound entirely, sending Scienceburg into chaos.

  • Grumpy Old Man: The owner of the Scienceburg Classic Buffet, as seen in the episode "Uncivil".
  • Heroic Neutral: Prof. Wright has no intentions towards being truly "good", but she is seen stopping most evil in the series.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: Hugh's face is always covered by a cardboard box.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Dr. Social Studies, at least many consider him this way.
  • Killer Rabbit: See Corrupt the Cutie
  • The Lab Rat: Although there is no particular person, Prof. Wright usually does them on either herself or Mr. Rhezo.
  • Lovable Nerd: Prof. Wright, you must admit, is a nerd.
  • Mayor Pain: Mayor Fernando, who spray-paints the walls of Scienceburg and as well makes strange laws when taking control. Often he can be a bad, or dumb mayor, yet everyone still seems to love him.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Cloud Peacetrance, who lives entirely on a salt-based diet, and happens to be Pope of Scienceburg.
  • One Steve Limit: Most of the characters have different first names, except for two characters both named Jamie who happen to be married to one another.
    • Could be said for Christopher Wright and Chris Lax, to a lesser extent.
    • Also could be said for Steve Kilmer and Stephen Mysteria to this extent, both who are antagonists in the series.
  • Stupid Scientist: The fact that the entire show revolves around scientists, this is bound to happen at times.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Mayor Fernando, he sucks so much at his job, it's hard to consider most of the work he does even counts as mayor work.
  • Time Travel: Can be seen in several episodes of the series.
  • Too Quirky to Lose: In an episode where the scientists go to Scienceburg Fun Valley, Prof. Wright, although only getting a score of 7 in bowling, gets challenged by Eric Wetzel, the bowling champion, anyway.
  • Unknown Character: Hugh, who eventually has an entire episode written about his strange behavior.
  • Unusual Ammo: In the episode Snow Warriors, just about anything imaginable is made out of snow.* Weirdness Magnet: Strange stuff happens to a lot of characters, and the Celestial Star Being may be summoned more than once.
  • Whole Plot Reference: Doctor What, Jocelyne Wright 007, and many others.
