** Stupendous Man flew to a tree branch ten feet above the ground to drop a snowball witnesses states was the size of a bowling ball onto Susie Derkins. A cubic foot of well-packed snow weighs over ''twenty'' pounds. How could Calvin possibly have gotten it up a tree, much less dropped it onto Susie's head without her noticing his presence in a red superhero costume?

* FandomSpecificPlot: A good number of Fanfic[=s=] are about Calvin as a teenager or adult; often including putting him in a more obviously romantic relationship with Susie.

* FandomSpecificPlot: A good number of Fanfic[=s=] are about Calvin as a teenager or adult; often including putting him in a more obviously romantic relationship with Susie. Some of these involve Calvin interacting with his own kids and introducing them to Hobbes. He may share {{Imagine Spot}}s with them, or end up stressing out about their behavior the way his own parents used to. As one strip put it:
-->'''Calvin''': You're enjoying this, aren't you Mom?
-->'''Mom''': Karma is a funny thing, isn't it?

* BeeAfraid: Calvin has a lot of painful encounters with bees and hornets and other stinging insects. Of course, he brings some of them upon himself by throwing rocks at their hives.

** Another example where Calvin actually enjoys learning: One strip had Calvin tell his dad that he and his mom went to the library. Calvin checked out a book about insects and proceeds to talk about how mother wasps lay their eggs inside spiders so their larvae will eat the spider once they hatch. Unfortunatley for Calvin's parents, he decides to tell them this with gross details [[GoneHorriblyRight at the dinner table]].

* WouldHitAGirl: Played with, Calvin likes to try and pelt Susie with snowballs, water balloons, pine cones, apples, toy darts, etc. but he never actually ''hits'' Susie. He has threatened to do so however.
-->'''Calvin:''' The Tooth Fairy's gonna make you rich tonight, Susie!

** That being said, it's also safe to assume Calvin "catching" Hobbes was just another one of their many role-plays.
