* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: At one point, Tony teleports into his friend Martin's car and asks him for a "position locator." Martin has no idea that Tony became a superhero up to this point, but doesn't seem surprised by this at all, not to mention the fact that Tony just teleported there.

Martin has no idea that Tony became a superhero up to this point, but doesn't seem seems only mildly surprised by this at all, not to mention Tony's outfit (he thinks it's an advertising gimmick, including misremembering Tony's superhero name as "Sandwich Man") or by the fact that Tony ''Tony just teleported there.
into the seat next to him''.
* UpgradeArtifact: The Belt. Tony has some powers before he puts it on, but the belt unlocks the rest.

* DestinationDefenestration: Remember, the best way to spot your local Puma Man is to chuck people out of windows until one of them survives. The film does a really bad job at establishing whether it's the villain or ''Vadinho'' who's chucking random Americans out of windows looking for the right one, though the evidence is there [[FreezeFrameBonus if you look carefully]] - one of the other victims is thrown out he window by two people, and neither looks like Vadinho (but one looks like the bearded {{mook}} who later attacks Tony at the consulate). There's also a brief line when Tony accuses Vadinho of throwing people out of windows, when Vadinho responds "I did not have to kill to find you," seemingly confirming that he wasn't the one tossing people out of windows. You'd be forgiven for missing that, though.

* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: In a scene deleted from the [=MST3K=] version, Vadinho lifts up the back end of Tony's car off the ground to stop him from escaping, rips the lock and handle off of door of the car and once blocked inside, rips off the steering wheel and bends the gear shift to escape. Granted that Tony drives a tiny classic Volkswagen Beetle, it is still impressive.

* MakeItLookLikeAnAccident: When Tony is FakingTheDead, Kobra's [[TheDragon Dragon]] suggests they plug Tony's seeming dead body to make sure he's dead. Kobras overrules him, saying it point to murder, not suicide. Of course, the question must be asked: who would know and who would ''care''?

* WhatAnIdiot: For all that he is otherwise the best character in the movie, Vadinho has a moment of pure idiocy when he tells ''Tony's mind-controlled girlfriend, in the middle of Kobras' lair'' that Tony is alive.

The plot? Our villain is Dr. Kobras (Creator/DonaldPleasence in a shiny futuristic muu-muu), who has gotten his hands on a huge golden Aztec mask, which contains alien circuitry that allows it to control minds. He plans to use it to dominate world leaders, and already has a collection of papier-mâché heads signifying his mental conquests. Only one man can stop him: the eponymous Puma Man, the scion of a line of "man-gods" sired by ancient spacefaring Aztec alien puma things. He's an American living in nearby London, so Kobras sets off to determine who his foe is by hurling potential candidates out of windows. Only the Puma Man could survive that, y'see.

Our hero is Tony Farms (Walter George Alton), an American paleontologist who is quickly discovered by Vadinho (Miguel Ángel Fuentes), an Aztec priest of the space-gods. The hulking holy man becomes Tony's mentor by hurling him out a window, chasing him around a university, and breaking into his apartment to aggressively push his belief system and fashion accessories. Tony is understandably reluctant to get involved in all this, but after mind-controlled love interest Jane Dobson is used to lure him into a trap, Tony finally accepts his heroic destiny and a magical Aztec belt, transforming into the mighty Puma Man!
