** Plus, it's almost certainly an ''office'' building. There's not much chance that the tenant companies would be open for normal business hours when there's a villainous super rampaging around the city.

**Or the idea ''did'' come to him - fleatingly - then he realized he'd be fighting a ''woman''; and that's most likely not his style.

*** Megamind refers to them as "menacing little cyborgs" in their introductory scene. Though that doesn't specify what organic parts they have, you can infer a lot with that information.

* The film subtly deconstructs why superheroes ''need'' a secret identity. If Superman had no Clark Kent, then he might have burned out just as Metro Man did.

** Since Megamind didn't know about it, chances are Metro Man never discovered it as a kid, when he would've flaunted it. Besides, he never really needed it, what with the other powers at his disposal. Advertising it by using it to escape when he had so many other options open to him just doesn't make any sense, especially when it's so useful to escape the everyday grind.

* At first, Metro Man's skeleton flying directly to Megamind and Roxanne in the beginning can be easily chalked up to RuleOfFunny, but when we learn that [[spoiler:Metro Man faked his death]], it becomes obvious that [[spoiler:Metro Man ''threw'' the skeleton to them in order to give incontrovertible "proof" that he was dead]].
** This was explicitly shown in the film...

** For all we know, [[spoiler: Metro Man ''was'' saving people during Titan's rampage. Using SuperSpeed makes him undetectable, remember? MM could've been zipping around in the background, deflecting rubble from bystanders or moving them out of danger, without giving away the fact he was still alive. If the driver of that tossed gas truck suddenly finds himself lying in the road near the blazing wreck of his vehicle, with no memory of how he got out, he's going to assume he was "miraculously flung clear" and knocked out, not rescued by a dead superhero. Metro Man wouldn't want civilians to ''die'' so he could retire; he just didn't want the pressure of being the city's ''only'' recourse in times of trouble, anymore.]]

** Further, it makes a lot of sense thematically if you consider that [[spoiler: Hal was supposed to be a hero, but that plan went sideways. Just as [[BewareTheSupermen Tighten]] is a perversion of what [[TheHero Titan]] was supposed to be, the same goes for his name.]]

* Megamind, Metro Man, and Minion all have names starting with the same letter, which makes the various changing of roles and the KansasCityShuffle at the end work: Whether it's Minion-as-Megamind, Megamind-as-Metro Man, or Metro Man-changing-careers-and-becoming-Music Man, nobody has to change their initials. And it means Megamind already has an [[BroughtToYouByTheLetterS appropriate initial]] when he is literally TakingUpTheMantle by putting on Metro Man's old cape.
