** Kicked Across The Room: characters are also prone to kick others in the same way. One example: Filemón is almost dead after being shot in the stomach, and is on a wheelchair. The Súper (who was the indirect causant of his being shot) asks him how he is. The next frame has the Súper with a shoe-mark on his back after having landed on an igloo, asking himself how it could happen.

* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Played with. In his first apparition ever, Dr. Bacterio is introduced as a biologist and just a biologist, only specialized in {{Super Serum}}s. However, he is later stripped of the trait and given instead the role of T.I.A.'s chief scientist, extending his field not only to biology, but also physics, technology and pretty much everything which is needed. The best sign of this evolution is his very title: the series and its adaptations are wildly inconsistent about whether Bacterio is a doctor or a professor, with both titles being pretty much interchangeable for him.

** In ''Los ladrones de coches'', a story about a gang that steals cars, there are some instances of this. For example, there is one guy sitting on his sports car, waiting for the green light, and the thiefs take his car. While he was on it. And without noticing. He ends up sitting on the street, his feet into the sewer and stepping on a sewer worker's ear, one of his hands on the sewer's lid as if it was the drive wheel, and the other on a dog's tail.

* HypocriticalHumour: In "El nuevo cate", one of the priests that comes to the T.I.A. building prevents Mortadelo and Filemón from killing a cockroach and gives them a long speech about the sanctity of life that gives them a brutal headache... but when other agent appears with a machine gun and tells the priest he is going to kill several criminals, the priest only blesses him and sends him on his way.
** Actually, priests and clergymen fall often under this trope. They are almost always showed as very obese people that eat and drink copiously, then donate a small coin to feed the poor "because gluttony is a sin".

Another strip had a slender middle-aged priest deliver a pious sermon about resisting temptation and lust. The next panel depicts the priest's private life: dancing in a night club with two floozies.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In a short story, the Super grows tired of Mortadelo and Filemón's incompetence and plots to get them fired. He tasks them with keeping safe a very important document, only to steal it himself. After his attempts to steal the document fail one after another, he overhears Mortadelo talking to the T.I.A. managing director and mentioning that Filemón had him the document in a cigar they left on the Super's desk... which turns out to be [[OhCrap the same cigar he is smoking]]. The Super's subsequently fired (but thankfully for him, NegativeContinuity is in effect).
