** The first minute or so of the movie also sets up a nice Subversion for Bob, Helen, and Lucius. Bob expresses a desire to settle down and Helen says she cant get enough of the superhero gig, veiwpoints that the both do a complete 180 on once the main story has actually started. Lucius is portrayed at first to be a womanizer who doesn't like to get intimate, but is shown to have a wife later on in the movie.

Lucius is portrayed at first to be a womanizer who doesn't like to get intimate, but is shown to have a wife later on in the movie. Bob and Helen's are [[JustifiedTrope justified]] almost entirely by their decommissioning; Helen prefers to focus on the present and the future, which at this point is dedicated to taking care of her family; Bob, easily distracted ChronicHeroSyndrome sufferer that he is, feels unappreciated and useless when he's not performing heroics. His non-superpowered attempts to be helpful are unappreciated and resented by others, usually due to technicalities.

* ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'' -- after a HowWeGotHere moment showing that it won't last -- begins with Emperor Kuzco dancing through his castle in a huge musical number about how great he is, which is only briefly interrupted by having an old man thrown out a window for bumping into him and throwing off his "groove".
** Having established ''that guy'' as our protagonist, his advisor, Yzma, is quickly established as being even worse as she sits on his throne, tuning out a pitiful little peasant whose voice bears more than a passing resemblance to Piglet:
-->'''Yzma:''' It is no concern of mine whether or not your family has... what was it, again?
-->'''Peasant:''' Um... food...
-->'''Yzma:''' Ha! You should've thought of that before you became ''peasants!''
