* It always annoys [[{{Stinkoman87}} This Troper]] that people keep calling Victor a cyborg when he is really more like a [[TheTerminator Terminator.]] But when I think about it more I realize that, yeah, he is a Terminator, in both design (a robot with human flesh grafted on to disguise its true nature) and function (meant to infiltrate a group of humans and kill them from the inside).

* The Deans are criminals bad enough to be exiled to another system willing to sell out their planet and their daughter for entirely selfish reasons who are [[MasterActor master actors]] you could never suspect this from. It's entirely possible that they're sociopaths.

* When the kids discover that their parents are supervillains and are having a hard time believing it, Gert lists all the lies adults regularly tell their children: "of course you're pretty," "your face will get stuck like that," etc when she's interrupted by Alex telling them "it's going to be okay." At first, it seems he's just reciting another adult lie to comfort them. [[spoiler: But at the revelation that he's TheMole for their parents, it's very subtle {{Foreshadowing}}!]]

* While at first The Gibborim may appear to be a rather simple BiggerBad, are actually the perfect antithesis to the Runaways themselves. The Gibborim are [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well done son" guys]] to ''God himself'', God punished them and threw them out of heaven, but due to their undying devotion, they are willing to commit an act of evil as great as extreme human genocide in the hopes of restoring the world's perfection, something that, in a twisted sense, they believe would please God. Contrast that with the kids, who disobey their parents in order to do what they believe is right.

* It's been said that abused kids often grow up to become abusive themselves. With that in mind, Chase's treatment of Klara during the "Homeschooling" arc - he repeatedly yells at her, kills fairies in front of her, and threatens to break every bone in her body unless she stops crying - becomes incredibly disturbing.

* When we see them at the beginning of the series, the Deans seems very kind, preppy and the standard GranolaGirl and SoapboxSadie types. But throughout their appearances, Leslie is not only quite possibly the most powerful and manipulative member of The Pride, but she and Frank both come off as condescending and coddling towards Karolina. Now consider the fact that Karolina outting herself to Nico appears to be the first time she's ever done it to anyone. Her parents are about as far left on the political spectrum as they can be, and she ''still'' fears their judgement so badly that she never came out to them. With all that in mind, ''what the hell kind of pressure has this poor girl been living under for the last 16 years?!''

* When the Wilders discover that Alex has snuck out of the house, leaving a mannequin's head in his bed to make it look like he was asleep, Mrs. Wilder [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the FridgeLogic of Alex just happening to have a male mannequin head in his room. This makes perfect sense, however, when it's revealed [[spoiler:that Alex spent the past year planning for exactly this situation]].
