* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: Most people nowadays have heard of this movie because it's "that movie with the exploding head", and if they're watching it, it's so they can see the part with the [[YourHeadASplode exploding head]].

Revok is a psychotic [[SmugSuper scanner-supremacist]] who wants to TakeOverTheWorld (reportedly, some of the later characterization for {{Magneto}} was based on him), and, with his terrorist sect of scanners, probably could. Now the question remains: Is Vale a badder dude than Revok?

* EyeScream: Exploding eyeballs.

* EyeScream: Exploding eyeballs. Made more excruciating in its detail, but mildly softened due to [[spoiler:Cameron no longer needing the eyes, as his personality entered and erased Darryl's, meaning he's in Darryl's brain now using Darryl's eyes]].

* PuttingOnTheReich: [=ConSec=]'s security guards wear all-black uniforms with shiny knee-high blck leather jackboots and peaked military style officer's caps, and more than a handful also sport black [[BadassLongcoat Badass Longcoats]]. Heck, the [=ConSec=] emblem is essentially one point away from resembling a Swastika.

* VillainsBlendInBetter: Vale lives as a derelict on the fringes of society because he cannot control his powers and conceal the fact he's a Scanner. He can seemingly conceal himself from other people's perception to some degree, or at least use mind control to make them ignore him, allowing him to do things like swipe their french fries, but generally leads a miserable existence. Compare this to Revok, who has ''supreme'' control over his powers and (except for a rough adolescence that saw him institutionalized) not only passes as an ordinary human without any difficulty (enough to fool ''even other Scanners'') and is a wealthy businessman in charge of a huge pharmaceutical company.
