Spy Kids: Mission Critical is a CGI animated reboot of the Spy Kids franchise.

The series revolves around Juni and Carmen Cortez attending a Spy Academy and leading their own spy team to counter S.W.A.M.P., a new evil counter spy team.

Tropes associated with Spy Kids Mission Critical:

  • Affectionate Nick Name:
    • Gregorio and Carmen call Junito, "Juni".
    • Juni calls Carmen, "Carm".
  • Alternate Continuity: This is clearly one with respect to films. For example, here Gregorio's team created the Third Brain only two years ago while in the first film Gregorio did not work as a spy for a long time. Also these Gregorio and Ingrid were OSS spies from the beginning, while in the films they worked for different, warring countries before they fell in love with each other.
  • Attack Pattern Alpha: During a fight with some evil robots after a heist goes south, Gregorio and Ingrid execute "Combination 61: The Aztec Death Spiral."
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Juni lives to annoy his older sister Carmen.
    • In episode 1, he steals her breakfast burrito while hanging from the ceiling.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: S.W.A.M.P. has "Sinister" right in its name.
  • Child Prodigy: Juni isn't even a teenager yet, and he built zero-gravity boots all by himself on a whim.
  • Create Your Own Villain: OSS created Golden Brain while trying to make human-like AI, and he started a new counter-spy agency as soon as he escaped their confinement.
  • Evil Brit: Golden Brain has a downplayed British accent, and uses British mannerisms. He's also an evil AI trying to defeat OSS, a heroic spy agency.
  • Fastball Special: "Combination 61: The Aztec Death Spiral" consists of Gregorio launching Ingrid towards the enemies.
  • Fun with Acronyms: S.W.A.M.P. stands for Sinister Wrongdoers Against Mankind's Preservation.
  • Hover Board: Carmen uses a flying skateboard with rockets on the rear to chase Juni in Episode 1.
  • Laser Hallway: Ingrid and Gregorio Cortez jump over some laser tripwire during a heist.
