* {{Deconstruction}}: Hal is a complete deconstruction of random geeks being given superpowers. Even guys like [[Franchise/SpiderMan]] would've become just like him if they didn't have a strong moral code.

* FreudianExcuse: He becomes a villain because he grew up in a prison and was rejected by his peers for his odd appearance and strange inventions. Anytime he did anything "wrong", Metro Man put him in the corner and he was rewarded for punishing him.

* BeingGoodSucks: He decides that being good has no immediate or long-term benefits despite the tremendous amount of work he's required to put in after being rejected by Roxanne.



* BigBadSlippage: [[spoiler: Was nothing before getting his powers, was creepily going after Roxanne after getting his powers, and was a threat after Roxanne rejected his advances.]]

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler:Megamind tells him a woman he saves would be his, but when Hal finds out that women don't work that way, he does not take it well. Also, being a immature person he is, just because he's given superpowers doesn't mean he'll use his powers for altruistic reasons. After Roxanne's rejection of Hal, Megamind learned it the hard way.]]

* SocietyIsToBlame: Downplayed. In the prologue, young Megamind was literally raised in a prison by the inmates (because apparently SocialServicesDoesNotExist) and when he went to school he was ostracized for looking different and creating inventions that happened to be a bit buggy, even though he made them trying to gain acceptance. Eventually he decided that if he couldn't be accepted, he'd be a villain instead. It's mostly PlayedForLaughs.

* WeakButSkilled: He admits that, unlike Metro Man, he doesn't amazing physical prowess or super powers, but he makes up for it by being an extraordinary GadgeteerGenius who is capable of XanatosSpeedChess.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Lampshaded by Roxanne and Minion, who both recognize that [[spoiler:Hal Steward]] is the ''worst'' person to give superpowers to.



* NobleDemon: Roxanne clearly isn't impressed with Megamind's torture devices and death traps; not just [[ActionSurvivor because she's]] [[SeenItAll seen them]] [[MundaneFantastic all before]], but because she knows he wouldn't really harm her with them.

Added DiffLines:

* GiveGeeksAChance: Subverted and thoroughly deconstructed. Hal is introduced as a painfully awkward nerd who is completely in love with Roxanne, though she just sees him as a workmate. [[spoiler:After Megamind gives him superpowers and (unwittingly) encourages him to make his move, he's revealed to be an EntitledToHaveYou PsychopathicManChild who [[IfICantHaveYou doesn't take rejection well]]. What? Just because he's a nerd and likes Roxanne doesn't automatically make him a good person or secretly the man of her dreams.]]
