** Less frequently, banks ("banco") and streets ("calle") are used for punny names, like ''Banco Jeando'' ("van cojeando", which translates as "They go limping") or ''Calle Se'' ("cállese", which means "shut up") and the neighboring ''Calle Seusté'' ("cállese usted", which can be interpreted as "YOU shut up").

* WetCementGag: Happens several times. For instance, on "La máquina del cambiazo", the titular characters are trying to run away so the Superintendent won't force them to enter the titular machine. During the escape, Filemón is thrown by Mortadelo over the wooden wall that marks the limit of a construction, and falls right into a pit of wet cement. The next thing we see is Mortadelo using a giant drill to try and get him out.

** Inverted at the end of ''¡Elecciones!'': turns out that there's a ridiculously big amount of parties running, and as a result each of them only gets one vote... except for a single candidate who manages to gather two votes and is subsequently named president.

* MultipleReferencePun: The agency the titular characters work for is called T.I.A., which is an obvious reference to the CIA. Since "tía" in Spanish means "aunt", the name also works as a pun on ''Series/TheManFromUncle'', fitting since it's a Spanish series about comedic espionage.

** One of the many secret entrances to the TIA offices has the duo dragging through a very narrow passage. Mortadelo finds the exit blocked by some sort of fabric a rips it off with a knife. Turns out that, in the other side, there was a very expensive picture that the Súper had on his wall. "The Tiziano! The Tiziano!", the Súper screams. "No, it's me, the Mortadelo", answers Mortadelo with a cheerful smile, "Don't you know me?"

** A non-Asian example is Prof. Bacterio. There is an episode in which Mortadelo burns up Bacterio's beard, revealing that he has enormous, very prominent buck teeth - which leads to think that Bacterio actually grows his beard in order to hide them.

** There are many other frames in which the Súper threatens Mortadelo and Filemón with something if they don't comply with his orders. Usually involves watching something so horrible that they will go with obeying. One example is ChuckNorris' [[TakeThat films]].
