** [[spoiler:Megamind's and Minion's eyes are in different places, so when Minion is disguised as Megamind, there is no need to leave the eyes free, which is why they stay the same colour. Also, Minion has fish eyes, which may be different enough to be able to see through the inside of the hologram, removing the need to not cover the eyes.

** it could also make it difficult to see if your eyes are completely covered by the hologram

* Megamind's sense of style and taste in music would seem an odd fit... until you consider when he landed in that prison. If you say Megamind is in his late 20's and the film is set in 2010, that makes him an 80's baby. Being raised by cons in an 80's prison, any radios would likely have been tuned to hard rock stations (AC/DC, Guns 'n' Roses, George Thorogood & the Destroyers.) Plus, since we see that his cell had a TV in it, he was likely exposed to MTV and VH1, and very likely would have gotten his sense of presentation from the likes of Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne and Michael Jackson. Now, the Minnie Ripperton still doesn't fit... until you remember that Minion was controlling the boom box. That was likely his taste in music peeking through, which means when Megamind plays it after Tighten stands him up for the fight, he was wishing Minion was still around.

** Which emphasizes the importance of sidekicks, minions, and [[Franchise/BatMan Alfred]] in the superhero setting. If the hero/villain is the FaceOfTheBand, then the sidekicks and minions are the Roadies, tying together all of the nitty gritty details while their boss works out the big plan.

** Yeah, it seems kind of dumb that Hal is taken in by 'Space Stepmom', but it seems he's never met Minion. Apart from everything else, how's Hal meant to know that his alien space-father ''wouldn't'' marry some kind of hyper-intelligent fish in a robot gorilla suit and wig? Why wouldn't their alien customs seem rather... alien? It's not a high-tech disguise like Mega-Mind's, but it didn't ''need'' to be. When it DID need to be a great disguise, he DID use the watch.

** 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.

*** At that point in the movie, Megamind is working to restore the status quo, because VictoryIsBoring. Yes, Roxanne fits the superhero mentality perfectly--but if he makes ''Roxanne'' the hero, he has to stop kidnapping her to lure the hero into his traps! He's trying to make things the way they were before, so she's already designated the damsel in distress in his mind.

* When Megamind points out to Roxanne that ice is what happens when water gets cold, he may not be trying to be deliberately sarcastic or snide, or even be oblivious. The issue is that he's so intelligent in relation to most people that her pointing out how to make ice sounds just as simple a statement to him as the full explanation of how he made a Metro Man infusion gun. Megamind liked her at that point so he was just being polite about it and explaining something to her.

** 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.

*** 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.
