* SmallRoleBigImpact: Not intentional from the JLI, but Hawkman and Hawkgirl made just a brief cameo, and it later become the main source of the convoluted [[ContinuitySnarl/{{Hawkman}} Hawk-snarl]] of the nineties.

* CaptainErsatz: Take a guess who the ''Scarlet Skier'' is a parody of. He tried really hard too. Took a correspondence course in {{melodrama}}. And to make it funnier, he's basically the only villain G'Nort ever defeated.
** General Glory is a rather blatant knock-off of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.

* CaptainErsatz: Take a guess There were many characters modeled after others from Marvel Comics. First, the Justifiers (ComicBook/TheAvengers), who were Silver Sorceress, Blue Jay and Wandjina (ComicBook/ScarletWitch, [[ComicBook/AntMan Yellowjacket]] and [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]; other Avengers appeared in backstories).

Then the Scarlet Skier (ComicBook/SilverSurfer) and his master Mr. Nebula (ComicBook/{{Galactus}}). And, finally, General Glory is a rather blatant knock-off of ComicBook/CaptainAmerica.(ComicBook/CaptainAmerica).

** The Extremists arc is another contender, with 5 expies of well-known Marvel Ssupervillains from another dimension coming to the main DC universe, hell-bent on killing as many people as possible and holding the entire Earth under the threat of a barrage of nukes just to get their kicks. Like with the Despero arc, the League can't even beat them on their own, only saving the day with the help of a WaltDisney expy, ([[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer yes, seriously,]]) and new Leaguer, Silver Sorceress, though she had technically been in JLI since its earliest days, if not as a Leaguer. There a few other such stories aside from those two, and when these types of stories occurred, the general light & silly tone that the rest of the series exuded made the more serious tales all the more shocking.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Cap Atom. Early, Power Girl was injured fighting the Grey Man. Catherine, who at that point was still Cap's secretary, decided to go over his head and order a very dangerous surgery performed, as that was the only way to save Power Girl's life; Cap had been unable to bring himself to give the order because he was afraid it would kill her. She assumed that Cap would be furious and was prepared to tender her resignation. Instead, he just told her that she had made the right call and thanked her for doing it.
* UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan: Involved in the events of Nate's first ongoing.

** Blue Beetle was one for ComicBook/SpiderMan. The artist would even draw him crouching, running on all fours, and hanging upside-down for no reason.

* RememberTheNewGuy: General Glory, a CaptainAmerica parody. Justified since knowledge of his existence was actively suppressed by the government, leading most people to assume he was just a comic book character.

** Hawkman was one toward the SilverAge in general. He became so disgusted with the brash, crude nature of his teammates that he quit the League in a matter of days.
