* EldritchAbomination: The Eleos are nigh-omnipotent {{Reality Warper}}s who can smack Plutonian around with ease, and they claim that [[YouCannotGraspTheirTrueForm their true form is too much for the brain to perceive.]] That said, they're actually pretty nice, styling themselves as knowledge keepers of the multiverse intrigued by humanity, and when they were sealed by a specialized radiation, they chose not to break containment to not harm the human race, instead settling for friendly chats with whoever's assigned to watch their imprisonment. [[spoiler: They're also Plutonian's origin race.]]
* EverythingIsRacist: Volt had a tendency to pull this out. There are some scenes where his hair-trigger accusations of racism genuinely find their mark, but there are others that don't, like accusing Bette of preferring Gil because he's not black.

** Modeus is an Expy of ComicBook/LexLuthor with a little bit of [[AiIsACrapshoot Brainiac]] thrown in.

** Modeus is an Expy of ComicBook/LexLuthor with a little bit of [[AiIsACrapshoot Brainiac]] thrown in. Curiously, WordOfGod states that Modeus and the Plutonian's relationship is a bit closer to Batman and ComicBook/TheJoker's.



* ZombieApocalypse: The Sonic Plague [[BodyHorror liquefies children' flesh and animates their bones.]] Worst part is that it spreads like wildfire through the ''screams'' of the living. The Paradigm managed to stop it before it gets out, but the damage is done and this is one of the biggest reasons of Plutonian's FaceHeelTurn.

* StarfishAliens: The Ultrasonic Lifeform that infects children and spreads through the ''screams''.



* SuperpowerLottery: The Plutonian was the clear winner, which led to certain members of the Paradigm resenting him even before his FaceHeelTurn. While he acted humble during his time as a hero, he didn't mind gloating once he went evil. At one point, while killing Gazer, Tony remarks how he made him totally redundant, being able to do everything he could do but better. [[spoiler:Turns out he "only" has RealityWarper powers -- since he thinks he could win, he does.]]

** Charybdis[=/=]Survivor is another winner. How else would you describe someone who can fight off the Plutonian successfully?

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: The [[UngratefulBastard ungrateful]] guy who complained of the bullet damages to his yacht, after they saved him from a pirate attack. This particular event made Plutonian to seek solace in the moon for 10 minutes, [[FromBadToWorse but then the virus strikes...]] True there's other UngratefulBastard as well, but this is the guy who's the figurative spark that ignited the whole fuel spill.

* TeleportersAndTransporters: Quibit has built several devices that seemingly produce wormholes. [[spoiler: The Vespans, having had access to his technology, weaponize them and defeat Plutonian with them. Seemingly out of action as of Plutonian's escape from the prison-planet]]

* UnskilledButStrong: While practically a PhysicalGod, the Plutonian turns out to have next to no hand-to-hand combat skill due to never really needing to learn how to fight. Weirdly, this is subverted in a story about him told by Max Damage, who says that he ''expected'' this when he caught the Plutonian in a field that nullified their powers... and got knocked onto his ass for his troubles. He could be exaggerating the story for effect, though, and might simply have been caught unawares by the fact that a depowered Plutonian was not totally incompetent. That, or Tony's [[spoiler:RealityWarper powers were still in effect.]]
