* AmbiguouslyGay: The Blue Raja. Not only is his mother discovering his superhero identity played like a coming-out story, when the two Wonder Woman-esque women start catfighting, all of the other men are staring with interest and he just sort of looks vaguely annoyed and confused. Upping the ambiguous ante, he seems to have some chemistry with the Bowler, who explicitly tells her father that he's not a "fruit" (or a commie).

** At the end of the movie, the team hasn't come up with a name, so the reporter only refers to them as "[[TitleDrop mystery men]]". Sphinx immediately speaks up, making us believe he's [[AppropriatedAppelation buying the name]], except he actually came up with a different one.

* MagicalNativeAmerican: The Sphinx is a complicated example. He's played by a Native actor, but his powers, code name, and costume are not Native themed, he works at a Mexican restaurant and can be summoned by ordering the right combo meal, and his "wise" advice is basically nonsense.

* TruthInTelevision: Shovel fighting ''was'' taught to most infantry through the end of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII. The reasoning was that infantry were often responsible for digging their own foxholes, and their enemies were unlikely to honor a call of "Time out!" while they went to fetch their gun or bayonet.

** Using the shrink-ray on the Furriers gives them, as the Bowler put it "a wedgie they won't soon forget".

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Dr. Annabelle Leek joins Casanova as his evil concubine, then vanishes without a trace halfway through the movie. [[WordOfGod DVD supplemental materials]] say there were originally some very funny bits with her that got cut out.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Everybody on the team, which is central to the premise but special mention goes to Invisible Boy who can only turn invisible when nobody is looking; this is only useful when trying to avoid electronic detection in a room where everybody is on his side and agrees not to look at him.

out. According to the script on imsdb, she angrily tries to shoot Casanova when he's having an IHaveYouNowMyPretty moment with Monica, accusing him of living up to his name as a {{Casanova}}. Casanova takes on the charm, convincing Anabel to drop the gun, then tells her YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness and tosses Leek out a window to her death. The heroes when scaling the building later see her fall her and hear her inevitable thud.
