* DoubleStandard: A recurring theme is that Emp is unable to have her difficulties taken seriously, because she's female. A notable instance of this is when she tries to show a number of male superheroes how it feels to be seen as a sex object by showing them gay pornography of themselves... only for them to turn it around into "So all these girls think we're hot and want to have sex with us, huh? Awesome!"

** Subverted [[http://www.empoweredcomic.com/comic/volume-1-page-26 here]]. A man wearing a "Super Genius" T-shirt dazes Empowered with halothane (a chloroform substitute because the author thought it cliché) and starts to remove her clothes as she screams through her gag, only to be even more horrified when it turns out he wants to wear her costume.

** Early on Empowered is captured by Imperial Pimpotron Alpha, an alien robot whose apparent purpose is to restrain women and evaluate their aptitude for "erotiservitude in the Cosmolactic Emperor's Harem". Aside from the whole situation being played for laughs (Empowered is spared a life of sex slavery because her butt is too big for the Emperor's standards and she's more upset about that than being kidnapped) there is also a joke about her potentially being the first human in the harem since Amelia Earhart.

* ManBitesMan: Emp bites people when her suit doesn't work anymore at the beginning. Later she stopped it doing, because bitten mooks tend to have grudges.



* TakeABiteOutOfCrime: Emp does it when her suit doesn't work anymore. Well, at the beginning. Later she stopped it, because bitten mooks tend to have grudges.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Unsurprisingly, quite a few of the villains are this. More unusually, there are also a few Politically ''Correct'' Villains around, like the aforementioned Wet Blanket. Volume 9 includes one scene where Emp gets out of a tight spot by getting a one of the former and one of the latter [[LetsYouAndHimFight to start fighting over politics]] while she escapes.

* PoliticallyCorrectVillain: Again, Wet Blanket is one of the straightest examples you can imagine. Volume 9 also includes one scene where Emp gets out of a tight spot by getting a one of these and one of the [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain other sort]] [[LetsYouAndHimFight to start fighting over politics]] while she escapes.

* AliensInCardiff: Ninjas in UsefulNotes/NewJersey. Even in this universe, the characters find it odd enough to comment on. Possibly because even though they're from NJ, they still do ''everything possible'' to act like stereotypical Japanese ninjas, including having Japanese names and using honorifics even in English. In our world, that would mean they'd be over-obsessed weeaboos, so maybe they're seen similarly there. A ninja from an authentic Japanese clan calls Ninjette a weeaboo, so they are seen that way.

* CopKillerManhunt: The reason Emp is merely tied up a lot. The oft-referred-to "unwritten rules" against killing or raping a superhero means that the majority of mooks, henchmen and lower-tier villains do not want to get branded as a "cape killer", because it will drive the rest of the hero community to come after them with extreme prejudice. This is why the [[spoiler:disastrous attempt to capture Willy Pete at the end of Volume 5]] is such a huge deal, and causes the entire caped community to stamp down very hard lest criminals and villains think the unwritten rules can be broken with impunity.
