* [[AndThenWhat And Then What?]]: In the in universe comic, an unnamed millionaire tells The Enigma that he'll soon own all the real estate in an entire city. The Enigma keeps asking him "And then what?". After outlining a vague plan for his entire lifetime based entirely around material possessions, the man is at a loss for words. The Enigma says he's amazed the man doesn't want to kill himself. The Enigmatics, a cult based around said comic, interpret this to mean they should commit mass suicide.

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: The Truth's power is to make people see everything in their lives with complete clarity and with all the comforting lies and self-delusion that they live with every day. Their minds don't usually survive this intact.

''Enigma'' is a 1993 comic book by Peter Milligan about an astoundingly dull man named Michael Smith, whose life is turned upside down when he gets attacked by a huge-headed lizard monster that sucks peoples brains out through their noses, and is saved by his favorite childhood comic book superhero The Enigma, a masked man with [[TheOmnipotent god-like powers]]. The story primarily centers around him and the comic book's author Titus Bird trying to figure out exactly what the hell is going on.

* TeleportCloak: In a rather unusual example, Envelope Girl's outfit isn't primarily used to transport her (though it is implied that it can). Rather, she goes up to random strangers, wraps them up in her clothing, and they are [[RandomTeleportation deposited in a cardboard box somewhere else at random]].
