* UnderhandedHero: Chase Stein's major value to the team is that he's willing to do things that his teammates will not in order to advance the team's goals, like hounding the members of the New Pride to make sure they never reconvene, or making deals with criminals like Pusher-Man and Maneater to acquire things that his team needs but cannot obtain legally.

* GettingTheBabyToSleep: Molly Hayes' evil parents used to use their psychic powers to get her to sleep when she was a baby, and continued to do this even as she was turning ''eleven''. In the final arc, she is understandably pissed when Nico resorts to something similar in order to get Klara to sleep.

* MoralDissonance: Nico's "The show must go on" spell that she cast on the Yorkes was a HUGE dick move, but the subject is dropped the very next panel and events move on without a word about it.

**
Nico's "The show must go on" spell that she cast on the Yorkes Yorkes, which forces them to continue on with their lives (being time travelers, they were at that point from before the series started), knowing full well their daughter is going to die, and be completely aware of what's happening, but completely unable to change anything. This was a HUGE dick move, but the subject is dropped the very next panel and events move on without a word about it.

->'''Karolina''': ''Is anyone else having a hard time processing this? I mean, no matter what you guys saw down there, it sounds like our parents have been leading some kind of freaky double lives...for years, probably. How is that possible?''
->'''Gert''': ''What? How is it possible that our parents lied to us? Let's see: Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, um, '''God.''' "You're the prettiest kid in school. This won't hurt a bit. Your face will freeze like that..."''
->'''Alex''': ''"Everything's going to be all right."''

Not to be confused with ''Film/TheRunaways'', a film starring DakotaFanning and Creator/KristenStewart, or the [[Music/TheRunaways real-life band]] that the film is based on. A [[http://smallfacescasting.com/ casting call]] has gone out for a movie based on the series but it has been delayed.

* ActOfTrueLove: Xavin poses as her beloved Karolina Dean and hands herself over to a group of Majesdanians who blamed Karolina for the destruction of their homeworld, protecting both Karolina and the other Runaways from the Light Brigade's retribution.

* GenderBender: When Xavin finds out [[spoiler:Karolina is a lesbian, and that is why they can't be together,]] he nonchalantly informs her that Skrull can change their gender as easily as humans can change their hair, and [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifts]] into a woman.

** Played with in the case of Karolina and [[spoiler: Xavin]]. Karolina explains to him that she can't date him because she's a lesbian, [[spoiler: at which point he says that it's not a problem and shapeshifts into a woman]].

* ShipTease: Nico and Karolina's on-again off-again UnresolvedSexualTension. Of course, [[spoiler:Karolina is canonically gay and has expressed her feelings for Nico.]] Toned down when Xavin enters the picture but comes back [[UpToEleven full force]] after she's [[spoiler:PutOnABus while disguised as Karolina to answer for the crimes of Karolina's parents.]] It is even hinted that Nico might have feelings for Karolina and is jealous of Xavin. She seems slightly disappointed to learn that they are still together upon their return to Earth. Nico later tries to undermine their relationship by asking if Xavin's female form is her TrueSelf. She also confesses in a game of "Truth or Dare" that out of all the people she had kissed, Karolina was the best kisser.

* DoubleStandardViolenceChildOnAdult: ''Runaways'' plays with this frequently. Molly Hayes has punched countless adults and older teenagers, usually with only the slightest provocation, and yet it's treated as humorous or even adorable, yet any adult who so much as threatens Molly (or later, Klara) tends to be treated as a monster who's crossed a line.
