* EvilTwin: The Invincible War was all about this -- Angstrom Levy recruited ''16'' evil versions of Mark as part of his revenge scheme. Mark himself barely fought any of them, though. By the end of the story, only 8 survived, and were uncermounously dumped in a wasteland dimension. Angstrom had INTENDED to retrive them, but due to his defeat, the group was stranded there and ended up resorting to cannibalism until only two survived.

* FailureHero: Closer inspection of his actions and their consequences in the story reveal Invincible to be this. He often makes reckless decisions and ends up paying for them later, costing the lives of millions of innocent people and making himself more disliked than he already was. [[spoiler: Examples include his interference with Levy Angstrom's experiment which turned the man to supervillainy and eventual genocide via alternate reality Invincible clones, blindly making deals with the blatantly shady and unscrupulous Cecil Stedman, rescuing Dinosaurus in attempt to use his evil intellect for good which caused millions to drown from melted ice caps after it didn't work it, making deals with Thragg to have him and remaining Viltrumites live on Earth, frequently changing his kill and no-kill stances, and eventually deciding to not even try to stop his hero-turned-tyrant comrade Robot from taking over the Earth. Even when he tries to leave Earth for a quiet life with his family, his bad decisions once again catch up with him when Thragg tries to have him and his family killed.]]

* AirJousting: Many of the aerial battles between Viltrumites end up like this in ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'', thanks to them being a race of {{Flying Brick}}s. One of the most destacable moments of this is the fight between [[BigBad Thragg]] and [[BloodKnight Battle Beast]], who fought a [[Main/{{Gorn}} bloody]] battle for days.

* OutsideContextProblem: Battle Beast. He first appeared early in the series when Mark was possibly the strongest person on Earth, at a time when no Viltrumites other than Mark and Nolan had been seen, and was a apparently nothing but an EliteMook for the issue's villain. Then he easily ''beat Mark nearly to death'', and only retreated because he had expected a greater challenge. He has since come back to fight Viltrumites.

** It could also be justified - if Cecil trusts Wolf-Man, and is wrong, the consequences are ''much'' less severe than if he trusts Mark, and is wrong - Wolf-Man can be taken down fairly easily, but Mark is a lot tougher, and could potentially kill millions and enslave the world.
