** DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Instead of rushing in blindly like the other critics, the LAG has been spying on the enemy's transmissions and tracking their movements since Part 1 in order to find the [[BigBad Executor's]] identity and location. ''Very'' smart move.
** [[spoiler: Still doesn't save him, though]]

However, their experiences made them have drastically opposite viewpoints- Film Brain sees the Critic's development and growth as an individual and wants to live up to his example, while Ma-Ti only sees the Critic's former spite, ItsAllAboutMe attitude, and self-centeredness, and tries to prove it by manipulating the Critic so he'd go into the Plot Hole and selfishly abandon the TGWTG crew in favor of his own freedom in the real world- destroying the entire Awesomeverse in the process.]]

* DiminishingVillainThreat: Remember that time he had Spoony murdered, or the time he nearly took over Kickassia? He's pretty much just an eccentric goofball here. Then again, wavering back and forth from comic relief to legitimate threat is part of his schtick. On the other hand, according to Noah's commentary, what we see in Part 2 is Insano being played straight; he's being dead serious(for him) to convey what a threat the Plot Hole really is. And when he shows back up in part 8, [[spoiler: he does manage to take the ''USS Exit Strategy'', and all of his tech that was incorporated into it, by threatening the whole crew at gunpoint.]]
