Added DiffLines:

** Several British policemen also laugh at the absurdity of Monkey Fist's return and as they're laughing one decides to throw in an unfinished crack about Kim being American. Kim promptly shuts them up by mentioning Nanny Maim.
** Will Du and Doctor Director also doubt the reports about the golems, though in Will's case it seems to be him being a JerkAss as he goes out of his way to belittle the story. Doctor Director drops the remarks about the absurdity of the story once Kim reminds her about Gemini's missiles for fingers, but focuses on the fact that they lack verifiable information at the time and promises to help as soon as Kim has something actionable.

* GodzillaThreshold: Unstated, but FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you realize that Kim's attempt to branch Ron into using MMP actively in ''A Friend in Darkness'' is exactly this.

* FriendlyEnemy: Ron and Rhonda are surprisingly civil with each other when they meet again in "A Friend in Darkness". Wade and Jade also manage to bury the hatchet (and not in the other's back) relatively quickly as well.

It doesn't work, and when told Jade tears into him about the whole thing and dismisses his idea that it would work as [[MarsAndVenusGenderContrast "a guy thing"]].

* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: The two worst situations Grimm gets himself into resulted from acting on his better impulses.

** Not that Grimm is much better, regularly claiming moral superiority over Kim because he "trusts his friends". One of his claims is that she never trained Ron in using his powers [[FridgeLogic even though Ron never expressed any desire in learning to use them to her]]. Rhonda is actually rather nervous about taking advantage of her powers when he shares his plan, but Grimm as excited as an Ork about to get MoreDakka and pushes her into it. Despite claiming to trust his friends more, Grimm has a way of being as manipulative and domineering to his friends as Maze is.

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideContextProblem: Much of Kim's difficulty in fighting Team Probable stems from Grimm always having something new that Kim has no way of predicting. The reverse is not true due to the renown Kim has earned over the years.


Added DiffLines:

** Then [[spoiler: ''Grimm'' falls victim to it at Maze's hands during Basalton, taking the shadow shaman at his word that it is impossible to bring Rhonda back. And unlike the above example where Kim was able to [[HeroicResolve keep fighting]] until the end, Grimm is DrivenToSuicide.]]

* DeceptiveDisciple: Maze is utterly self-assured that he is a true follower of the Great Bear Spirit, even after the Great Bear rejects him in favor of Rhonda and tells him that he's following the wrong path.

* DiplomaticImpunity: Thanks to his [[AssInAmbassador mother]], Team Probable is covered by this. Naturally, they take full advantage of it.



** Worth noting that it does NOT happen immediately after the two villains banish the sidekicks - it takes a couple chapters to happen. Grimm tries to talk Kim into doing it immediately, and she [[ShutUpHannibal calls him out on thinking she would trust him after all he had done]].

* RightForTheWrongReason: When Monkey Fist and Maze learn that the statue at Yamonouchi that was set to become a golem had been neutralized, Monkey Fist believed it was because either Kim or Grimm were there and had passed on the golems weakness to the ninjas. Monkey Fist was partially right. Kim ''was'' at Yamonouchi, but wasn't aware of the global golem scheme, with the real reason being that [[ContrivedCoincidence one of the ninjas at the school was a contact of Grimm's ally Twitch]].
