* 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 puts a little ''too'' much effort into making us wonder if maybe Vadinho's one of the guys who's chucking random Americans out of windows looking for the right one, with how he stalks around wordlessly looking all creepy, tearing through all obstructions with his bare hands to get to Tony, and then suddenly grabbing him and shoving him out a window. Since he actually works for the aliens sponsoring Pumaman, you'd hope he'd have less murder-y methods for finding the right guy at his disposal.

It's clearly not Vadinho, however, as a [[FreezeFrameBonus glimpse]] at the ''two'' people, neither of them Vadinho, who throw one of the other victims out a window, but the movie doesn't go out of its way to make that clear.

* 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 the 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.

* 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.
* UpgradeArtifact: The Belt.

* UpgradeArtifact: The Belt. Tony has some powers before he puts it on, but the belt unlocks the rest.

* 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''?
