* OutsideContextVillain: Most of the major arc opponents are these. They come upon the Authority unprepared and hand them their own asses, then the Authority work out how to deal with them, and return the favour.

Created by writer WarrenEllis and artist Bryan Hitch, '''''The Authority''''' took the standard superhero tropes and shook them up with a {{manga}}-influenced "widescreen" style that used splash pages and large panels to make the business of saving the world actually look impressive for once.

* MightMakesRight: The Authority, at their worst, believes being the most powerful superhuman team on Earth allows them to do whatever they please whenever they wish. Especially when they have [[RealityWarper Jenny Sparks and the Doctor]] on their roster.

* TakeThat: Creator/MarkMillar's first arc imfamously had pot shots of standard tropes of superhero comics, Creator/MarvelComics (the villains being based on the heroes of the Franichse/MarvelUniverse and the BigBad more or less being Creator/JackKirby), and UsefulNotes/BillClinton. One of the miniseries went so far as to compare Clinton to UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Makes no mistake: the Authority will treat their enemies as bad or worse than those same enemies do other people. One infamous incident [[spoiler: had implied Apollo raped by a ComicBook/CaptainAmerica {{expy}}. After Apollo crippled him, his lover Midnighter, walked up to the man holding a jackhammer, impling he intended to use it to return the favor.]]

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Makes no mistake: the Authority will treat their enemies as bad or worse than those same enemies do other people. Midnighter slammed the Carrier into Kaizen Gamorra, and the Authority's response to the Blue's invasion of their Earth is to go to the Earth the Blue took over and destroy its London and Italy.

After Apollo crippled him, his lover Midnighter, walked up to the man holding a jackhammer, impling implying he intended to use it to return the favor.]]

* HerosEvilPredecessor: * One of Doctor Jeroen Thornedike's predecessors, known only as the Renegade Doctor, was an OmnicidalManiac. After Jeroen suffered a heroin overdose during a crisis, the Authority was forced to restore his predecessor's powers in order to fix the crisis. Luckily for them, in the intervening years, the Garden of Ancestral Memory had added "empathy with all living things" to the list of powers that came with the job, which overwhelmed the Renegade Doctor, distracting him long enough for the Authority to finally kill him.

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The G7 version of The Authority gives us The Colonel. Who fits this trope to a T.He's a repugnant misogynistic asshole and damn proud of it. And then there's ''Last Call'' who may be the most vile depiction of a homophobic character to ever be featured in a mainstream comic book.

** If somebody says anything even remotely homophobic in the [[ComicBook/TheAuthority Midnighter's]] comic book series, they're evil. Period. Sole exception is Kev, who [[CharacterDevelopment in the end admits to himself]] he repeats homophobic slurs, because he got his idea how tough guys should act from TV and movies.
