* FlockOfWolves: Every member of the Metropolitan Police's secret occult crime squad Division X is actually an Invisible double-agent. Jon Six was the only one to know all the others were moles, Jack Flint didn't even know that he was a mole due to using a MemoryGambit, and the other two thought that they were the only one.

Added DiffLines:

* SexMagic: In the "Black Science" arc, Lord Fanny is shown powering one of her spells with masturbation. ''The Invisibles'' also includes a rather unusual example in its ParaText: during its early run, the sales of the series dropped notably, and author Creator/GrantMorrison (who practices magic in real life) was worried it would get cancelled. To prevent this, he suggested a massive, multi-person [[ADateWithRosiePalms "wank-a-thon"]] on the letters page of one issue. The idea was that all the readers would masturbate on a particular date while focusing on a magical sigil Morrison had provided, and the resultant SexMagic would stop ''The Invisibles'' from getting cancelled. Unfortunately, this particular issue was delayed, so it came out only after the date Morrison had set, though the series was never cancelled anyway.

* ObfuscatingDisability: The mysterious Blind Chess Player may actually be {{Satan}}, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoch_%28Biblical_figure%29 Enoch]], or another character in the comic itself, but he definitely isn't actually blind. [[SuperSenses Positively the reverse.]]
