* BecomingTheMask: Madrid's Gina disguise is so powerful, she starts to take on Gina's abilities and personality traits. [[spoiler: Eventually, the Madrid personality gives up and dies, leaving a more-or-less mental clone of Gina with Madrid's memories]]. This doesn't stop her, though, from wondering if her earlier selfish, abusive nature isn't just buried under all of Gina's memories and abilities when she comes across some beefcake-y, interplanar frog-monks and their injured but ultra-powerful guardian, and her first thought is to seduce and ride one until he breaks. Subtracto assures her that the Madrid she used to be wouldn't be worried about hurting others.

** Heck, there is even an instance of [[spoiler:[[RapeAsDrama a woman (though dragon she may be) who was quite brutally tortured and raped fueling a misguided and misdirected quest for revenge against two arguably innocent bystanders, and later meaning to use another character's innate and always-on fear-aura against her rapist, who had a recently discovered weakness to it.]]]]

** Going even further, Gina got hit hard by a Dire Charm spell cast on the codpiece of on an invader to Jade-Realm during a lynchpin battle for the secret of a certain temple. [[spoiler:The invader was actually Alt!Monty being directed by Alt!D'bra to enchant and kill Gina while she was stunned by the spell on his junk.]] After being saved by Monty, Gina still had to let the effects burn their way out of her system, which led to no end of unbidden naughty thoughts of fucking his brains out and a fair amount of involuntary twerking. Fortunately for Gina, Monty was familiar with such effects and wasn't embarrassed or offended by Gina's advances.

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Frequently averted. For instance, Brianna, the lab-accident composite clone trying to kill the Diggers sisters, now their gung-ho sister. Or Charlotte, the instant-grown harpy girl accidentally freed from the control of the time-travelling dog who fired her at our heroes, now co-headliner of a {{WAFF}}y spinoff. Or Array, the sentient spell-creature that creates other living spells with their own minds, bodies, and personalities, all of whom love the villain Tirant unreservedly and are currently working for Dreadwing [[spoiler:in the hope of resurrecting Tirant after his HeroicSacrifice to save all of her selves from a monstrous catastrophe]]. [[spoiler:Alhabra Gihom is another of Array's personalities, somehow left behind when the main body was conscripted by Dreadwing, and is now part of Gina's advanced archaeology class, [[PlayedForLaughs often mistaken for an end-table but never on purpose]] She just happens to fall asleep in crouched positions while researching or writing papers.]]

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity

to:

* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanityWithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Dreadwing is prone to bouts of evil laughter when he thinks he's won some great victory, but this usually precludes his being shown up just as quickly. He's also shown talking to the spirits of other creatures he's assimilated over the years, so he's essentially talking to himself. Ancient Gina has yet to show any real signs of insanity.

* StalkingIsLove: When Ace is too nervous to ask Penny to marry him, she becomes rather obsessed with manipulating him into to doing so. She and Gina impersonate his co-workers to convince him into proposing and [[ControlFreak begin to track his every move]]. Gina begins to question Penny's rather unnerving actions and controlling mindset, and Penny admits that [[LoveMakesYouCrazy she gets paranoid over Ace]]. (Having recently had to dogfight a rival—an AcePilot almost as good as Ace himself—in a [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross VF-1S]] (with [[MechaExpansionPack FAST packs]] to boot!) to prove to the rival she deserved him did ''not'' help.) Ace goes off of her grid, reveals that [[KnewItAllAlong he knew what Penny was doing all along]], and proposes to her on his on terms.

*** It wouldn't be so bad if these things were just done as gags all the time, but often they're ''plot relevant'' in working just like the original reference material. Gina's [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Lagann]] knockoff's ability to, well, act just like the Lagann is extremely important in the storyline. Same with the [[{{Transformers}} Matrix of Leadership]] {{Expy}} the Edge Guard have (which was transferred in a [[WholePlotReference whole scene reference]] right down to the use of "'Til all are one"). (Granted, the Matrix analogue contained a planetoid-sized spaceship in its own pocket dimension, so it didn't function ''quite'' the same. Still, Fred ''does'' love to riff blatantly on ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie''.)

** However, the ''Gold Digger'' world at large isn't exactly "normal". Hyper-tech, HumongousMecha, and pest exterminators who deal with super-powered rodents are all ''background elements'' of the world. This is strongly exemplified when KidGenius supervillain Pee-Wee, a boy who has made his own genetically modified mages and muscle(wo)man bodyguards, goes to an advanced school for super-folk and finds himself ''falling behind''.
