** Doubling down on the Elephant, it is later revealed the white man in the costume [[RaceLift is a black man]] magically transformed by the amulet that gave him his powers. So he's a white elephant, fitting as he just keeps turning up. [[spoiler: Although this is revealed moments before he IS gotten rid of at long last.]]

* AtlantisIsBoring: Provides the page image; at first the most notable thing about the place is the fact that Omni-Man killed the king. The trope gets decidedly less straight the second time the place is visited, with Lethan trying to keep the city running despite the attack of Octoboss and other standard superhero/supervillain intrigue.

* AchillesHeel: Viltrumites have few weaknesses. The easiest one to exploit is their equilibrium. Due to the fact that Viltrumites can fly, they hve incredibly advanced and complex inner ears. This makes them extremely vulnerable to high-pitched frequencies. It can do everything from causing severe pain to inducing a waking-dream coma, and can possibly kill them outright. At the very least it immediately disrupts their ability to fly.

** [[spoiler:Eventually, Mark tries to do ''exactly the same thing as Cecil'' with the murderous but brilliant Dinosaurus, thinking that he can make use of the villain's intellect while preventing him from harming innocents. This turns out to be even more disastrous than Cecil's similar attempts.]]

** Mark's ArchEnemy is probably Angstrom Levy. Even though he appears only rarely, Levy is the only major villain in the series with a personal vendetta against Mark and vice versa.

* YouFailGeographyForever: The secret base of the Lizard League is supposedly located in the Everglades. Surrounded by mountains. Uh huh.
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler:Thadeus]] and [[spoiler:Omni-Man]] not only want to atone for their sins, but [[spoiler:but for the sins of the whole Viltrumite empire]].
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Thragg, the head of the Viltrumite Empire, is the strongest, best fighter of his people. [[spoiler:Not a single one of the group sent to kill him gave him more than a bloody nose. Subverted when the rest of the Vilturmites learn that Nolan is the son of their previous Emperor. They immediately switch their allegiance from Thragg to Nolan, despite Thragg still being by far the strongest. Emperor Argall, they say, was followed for his ''wisdom'', not his strength.]]

* OutsideTheBoxTactic: In one issue, the main character faces a villain with the power to absorb force and kinetic energy; he wins by [[spoiler:punching the bad guy until he's been overloaded with so much energy it travels through the floor, vaporizing his family and emotionally crippling him]]. This was NOT his intention.

This was NOT his intention. In a rematch, Mark uses a reverse tactic; he refuses to fight the villain, who then uses up his reserves of energy until he is depowered.



* StealthPun: The Official Handbook of the Invincible Universe put forth the idea that minor villain the Elephant has total recall, a perfectly photographic memory. That's right. The Elephant never forgets.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: Every [[HalfHumanHybrid hybrid child]] of a Viltrumite will inherit their powers. But more than that, their genes are explicitly "more dominant than dominant", often making their children have a higher percentage of Viltrumite genes than their other parent's. Humans are already genetically similar enough that human/Viltrumite pairings produce hybrids that are nearly 100% Viltrumite.

*** Dinosaurus leads the DeconstructorFleet one level deeper on this topic: He takes issue with superheroes rebuilding cities after climactic battles for several reasons. His main concern is that they're doing the human race no favors, ecologically speaking, by rebuilding unsustainable cities. He's also angry that their superpowered assistance deprives thousands if not millions of people of jobs. It's also implied that rapid rebuilding keeps people from realizing just how frequently and horrifically this universe gets torn up by super-conflict.
