Added DiffLines:

* DoingInTheScientist: His puppets' powers were originally explained as being due to their [[ILoveNuclearPower radioactivity]]. Apparently realizing how implausible that sounded, even by comic book logic, later stories attributed it to being [[LeakingCanOfEvil infused with magic from proximity]] to the base of Wundagore Mountain.

* AmnesiacDissonance: As an insect-like being, one of his life stages is an attractive human form with no memory (and in fact a righteous disdain towards) his real identity. When he matures into his adult form he shortly forgets that personality too (but not completely, the love he developed for Blink).



* BadBoss: Most infamously in ''Anihilation'', where he slaughtered an entire part of his fleet because ''it took them too much time to conquer a planet''.

* TheConstant: The Negative Zone is a multiversal singularity, meaning all instances of it seen from alternate universes are the same one. Subsequently, this means all Annihilus seen in what-if stories are the same one.



* JokerImmunity: Has died multiple times, it never sticks. Whenever he is killed his hive just births a new one.



* WingedHumanoid

to:

* WingedHumanoidWingedHumanoid: Notably they're more like a bat's than an insect's.

** Considering he developed while working as a research chemist for another company, it's possible he thought (or this was actually the case) anything he developed was technically owned by them, hence, he decided to try and be a criminal instead.

* ButtMonkey: He is unfortunate enough to have started out with one of the most ridiculous supervillain name ever, ''and'' suffered from an in-universe case of NeverLiveItDown about it. Spider-Man, in particular, just ''can't'' take him seriously because of it.

* SpannerInTheWorks: Most of his plans are short-circuited by these. Once, his whole scheme was foiled because he failed to take in account the Fantastic Four's ''mailman''.

* BerserkButton: Don't call him "The ''Mad'' Thinker" to his face; it just "The Thinker", thank you very much.

* AdaptiveAbility: The Impossible Man's shape-shifting ability really boils down to this. It's a natural ability of his race, and it's explained that his planet had many dangerous lifeforms that the Poppupians evolved to consciously adapt to pretty much anything.

* SeenItAll
* TheWatcher: The TropeNamer. He lives on the moon, watches everything in every comic, and occasionally pontificates to the readership about it. He always loudly proclaimed "Yes, it is I the Watcher, who is always watching, but must not interfere", roughly every other sentence as if people were going to forget it. Which to be fair is probably a valid concern because quite notably, in spite of this expression, he almost always ended up interfering ''anyway''. A hilarious example of him actually not interfering comes when the ComicBook/RedHulk, who punched Uatu while on his VillainSue trip, appears about to die. Uatu shows up and tells him "[[SarcasmMode Sadly]] I am forbidden to intervene" and stands there so he can watch him get sucked into a black hole.

to:

* SeenItAll
SeenItAll: Uatu and his race are ageless and effectively immortal. Various stories have hinted that he is billions of years old. From his position in the Moon he has observed all of Earth's history. He also observes other locations of the Universe, and can observe events in other realities. Surprising Uatu is difficult.

* MissingMom

to:

* MissingMomMissingMom: Her mother Marcia Deaton has appeared in a few flashback tales, but she is long dead. A wicked plot by the Puppet Master/Philip Masters accidentally exposed Marcia (the only woman he loved) to radioactive isotopes. Marcia died of radiation poisoning, leaving Philip heartbroken and feeling guilty.
*MoralityPet: Often serves as this for her stepfather the Puppet Master/Philip Masters, who is otherwise a ruthless villain. According to Philip's origin story, Alicia was not born blind. When Philip was trying to kill his hated rival Jacob Reiss (Alicia's biological father) in an explosion, he did not expect anyone else to get hurt. Alicia was unexpected collateral damage, blinded by the blast. Philip has always felt guilty, and decided to both raise her and treat her as his own daughter. The same story mentions that Alicia was a talented painter before going blind, and Philip was disturbed that Alicia could not follow her passion for art after going blind. Since Philip himself was an amateur sculptor, he taught her how to sculpt instead.
