Angelo Rules contains the following tropes:

  • Absurdly High-Stakes Game: Angelo and his friends often find theirselves in difficult situations which require a not-so-connected challenge to extricate theirselves from. Many examples emerge, among them planning and designing a small radio-controlled car to win a race in town in order to take back something dropped in the neighbor's garden.
  • Academic Alpha Bitch: Tracy. Overlaps with Teacher's Pet, since the main teacher is her uncle.
  • Beauty, Brains, and Brawn: Lola is the beauty, Sherwood is the brains, and Angelo is the brawn.
  • The Bully: In the series, Manetti is portrayed as this due to being brutal towards the characters. However, he has a nice side.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Is Geezer's real name Geezer or is it an Affectionate Nickname the townspeople address him with?

  • Gilligan Cut: In one episode, Angelo says, "You cannot make me go to sleep." Cut to Angelo laying in bed. Angelo says, "However, you can make me get in bed. But that's it." Then Angelo goes to sleep.
  • Girly Girl with a Tomboy Streak: Although she's typically girly, Brandy isn't above skateboarding and playing sports.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Geezer, quite fittingly. But by Season 2, he loses all of his grumpiness and is happier.
  • The Klutz: Butterfingers is always getting into accidents as part of his characterization.
  • Mission Control: For any task requiring action from Lola and Angelo, whether alone or together, Sherwood will be behind the screen relaying intel and orders.
  • One Steve Limit: Characters never share the same name.
  • The Plan: Every single episode will feature a plan of some sort, from a carefully-executed Batman Gambit to outright reckless improvisation when things go wrong.

  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Peter (cheerful and energetic) to Cooper (rough and rude)
  • Shout-Out: One episode is titled "A Fish Called Mr. Bubbles".
  • Slice of Life: The series explores Angelo's day-to-day life, and most of the episodes take place in the protagonist's school.
  • Those Two Guys: Clyde and Alonzo, two of the school jocks, are best bros and are often seen together.
  • Three Shorts: The show originally went with this format for Season 1. It switched to a "Two Shorts" format starting from Season 2.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Ms. Pearla and Mr. Foot have a crush on each other. In "Pop Quiz," Angelo explains the difference between them, as Pearla's interesting while Foot's boring.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Lola has pink hair. Elena (Angelo's sister) is blue-haired, inheriting that trait from her mother.
