* 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.

* MoralDissonance: MoralDissonance:
**
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."''

* 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]].

* PutOnABus: [[spoiler: Xavin, and Karolina went through this for a time]]. Though she came back surprisingly fast for this trope. [[spoiler: then Xavin left and there's no sign yet of Xavin's return]]

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* PreInsanityReveal: Early on in the "Dead End Kids" arc, Victor is pursued by Tristan, a hideous and seemingly deranged man with giant metal wings who seems to hate him for reasons he can't figure out. [[spoiler: After the team is sent back in time to 1907, Victor meets Tristan's younger self, who's far more normal, or at least as normal as a big dude with metal wings can get. Unfortunately for Victor, Tristan has designs on Lillie, a local girl who becomes smitten with Victor, and he thinks Victor's out to steal "his" girl. Furthermore, the Runaways end up inadvertently causing a catastrophe that leaves Tristan horribly disfigured.]]

* FateWorseThanDeath When Nico [[spoiler:casts a spell on Gertrude's parents, trapping them in their own bodies with the knowledge that their daughter will betray them, kill them, and then die herself in a few short years. But they're unable to act or speak as if they knew, unable to do anything to stop it. As Nico puts it, for the next few years, "They'll be screaming inside."]]

* SpinOff: There was a short-lived series about Excelsior, called ''ComicBook/TheLoners'' because StanLee holds copyright on the word "Excelsior". Um, hang on...
