* ''The Infiltration'' is one of the most unusual episodes in the whole series for how evenly it distributes these among the whole cast. Here we go:
** A pair of speedboating MAD agents take Gadget on a waterskiing-themed DeathTrap, and they ''just about succeed at killing Gadget''. While underwater, Gadget then escapes by cutting through the cage with his Gadget Laser.
** Dr. Claw's big scheme--have an impersonator stand in for the late inspector--is practically foolproof. Not only that, but Presto Change-o successfully ''fools everyone'' (that he leaves behind a subtle MorphicResonance is probably for the viewers' benefit).
** Gadget is just about competent! He acts like a detective, and even though he just can't see the bigger picture, he gathers the clues and keeps a sharp eye out. Better still, he gets this line, delivered with nothing but conviction by Don Adams:
--> "If I don't find him soon, the security of the free world could ''be...in...jeopardy''."
** While disguised as Gadget, Presto one-ups Penny right in front of an incompetent security guard by declaring that ''she'' is Presto Change-o!

* "Don't Call Me Gadget" has [[ItMakesSenseInContext aliens place a chip in Gadget's head]] that will supposedly reverse his intelligence from [[MistakenForBadass smart to stupid.]] When the obvious happens, we truly see the full extent of what the cyborg can do when for the first time ever, a [[DumbassNoMore genuinely lucid]] Gadget decides to bring out the [[MoreDakka big guns!]]. This may even lend some character development as Gadget had stated earlier that he despised violence, but operating at peak mental efficiency, the kid gloves are off.

* Gadget shows that even he has a BerserkButton in "The Amazon," when Dr. Claw kidnaps the scientist who gave him his gadgets. [[LetsGetDangerous The resulting car chase]] is possibly the single most BadAss scene Gadget has in the whole show. As usual, Penny and Brain stow away in the Gadgetmobile to make sure he doesn't get hurt... and immediately wish they hadn't.

* Gadget of all people gets one in "Haunted Castle", in his [[SmartBall few shining moments of compentency]]. First, when the Gadgetmobile goes over the side of the cliff with Penny and Brain inside, he is able to get them back up to safety. Later inside the castle, when Dr Claw sets the basement on fire, Gadget whips out his water-finger and puts out the fire quickly.

Added DiffLines:

** The Amazon chase scene is interesting especially because Gadget gets very close to finally capturing Claw ''within the first few minutes of the episode''.
