* TheEighties: Hardly [[Film/SpaceMutiny the worst example]], but still.....
** The film came out in 1980, but judging from the disco-esque music & other things it could be mistaken for TheSeventies as the '80s hadn't taken its distinctive form yet. This can be said for any year that ends in zero.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: Because his [[MentorArchetype mentor]] ''forgot to mention'' that "your hands are claws" during the earlier orientation. Though Tony might have been able to extrapolate this from his name if his powers weren't so random.

*** A superhero based entirely around the [[MagicFeather Placebo Effect]]? That sounds like a ''way'' better movie than this!

* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling[=/=]SpiderSense: Tony gets headaches when trouble's around. Well, sometimes; he still walks obliviously into traps and ambushes several times.

* 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 ''Vadihno'' who's chucking random Americans out of windows looking for the right one (supposedly it's the villain, while Vadihno knows from the start who to do the test on, but try telling that from evidence presented, where Vadihno stalks Tony around not saying a word to him before grabbing him and shoving him out a window).

* SingleLineOfDescent: The opening narration by the space-god establishes that ''all'' of his son's male-line descendants should be Pumamen, but Tony is apparently the only one.
