* ComesGreatResponsibility: Usually completely averted with the TropeNamer--Mego Spidey would be more than content to ignore the absurdity surrounding him and remain on his couch, watching TV and eating potato chips. Even a PreAssKickingOneLiner moment, after the other Megos come to him for help when the Marvel Legends figures attempt to take over, ends up as a precursor to Mego Spidey kicking them out of his house.

* NegativeContinuity: Most of the Stormtrooper comics place the characters at different locations during the ending of ''Return of the Jedi''. They have alternately been portrayed working construction on the Death Star when it blew up, watching its destruction on TV in a bar, and being captured by Ewoks as it exploded. Footnotes provide LampShading of the inherent continuity errors.

* SmallReferencePools: The writers will often throw in references to comic characters from their youth who are all but unknown in the modern age. This is either remarked upon in an editor's note or [[LampshadeHanging mentioned by a character.]]

* SpaceJews: [[Franchise/{{Predator}} The Predator aliens]] are Jewish. [[RuleOfFunny Somehow]].
* SpecialEffectsFailure: [[invoked]] Intentional, humorous example in an early strip (that the DC ban has kept from being republished): Starro the Conqueror is represented by a huge, star-shaped cookie with googly eyes. Spider-Man beats him with a garden hose. Many unintentional examples, too. Kirk drops a "boulder" on the Lizard and Gorn that was pretty obviously a spray-painted crumpled-up piece of aluminum foil, and Thor and Iron Man somehow crashed into the only tree for miles around and flew out of a [[DukesOfHazzard General Lee]] that was about the same size as each of them in a failed attempt at a ForcedPerspective shot.
* TakeThat: To every DorkAge that ever existed. Brian Michael Bendis appears as a character almost entirely for the purpose of Take Thats against him. He fills the panels with huge amounts of dialogue, brags about being paid by the word, and is killed by the Scarlet Witch in a ''New Avengers'' parody (while all of the characters he killed off in ''Avengers Disassembled'' refused to help him). Ed Brubaker's transformation of Bucky into a grim and gritty Anti-Hero is utterly mocked in one installment, complete with Nick Fury trying (and failing) to teach Bucky to be a badass. And two villains decide to kill Franklin Richards after seeing him "stealthing" in a cardboard box and declaring the Raiden section of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid 2'' to be a ripoff.

A comic series published every month in ''Toyfare'' magazine -- an action figure hobbyist magazine and price guide that is humorous in tone -- since the magazine began in 1997 and collected in trade paperbacks, "TTT" combines [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]], liberal references to anything in pop culture, [[TropeOverdosed tropes on top of tropes]], and fair amounts of BlackComedy as a topper. ''ComicStrip/TwistedToyfareTheatre'' originally featured 1970s Mego dolls (many of them customized, and most of those being Marvel characters) as the main characters, although other characters (such as [[Franchise/GIJoe Cobra Commander]] and [[Franchise/StarWars the Stormtroopers]]) have become more prominent as the Megos got stale (Literally, those things were held together with rubber bands).

* CharacterExaggeration: Nearly every character who appears is a heavily exaggerated parody of themselves. Doug Goldstein said a favorite technique of his was to take a personality trait and twist it just slightly, making it ludicrous while still true to the character. As an example, he cited the Borg; the first time they knock on Spidey's door, he slams it in their faces, but when he tries to do so a second time, the Borg "adapt to his defensive capabilities" by sticking a foot in the door.

By contrast, Mego Spidey himself is a complete 180° from the classic "with great power comes great responsibility" of his comics counterpart--he would much rather avoid/ignore whatever shenanigans are afoot and be left in peace.

* ButtMonkey: Cyclops, who is constantly insulted and abused by Professor Xavier. Also the Falcon, by Captain America. Doom, right from the start. The first strip had him beaten senseless by Ponch and Jon, and ''it just went downhill from there''.
