*** Bob seems to treat this speed as beyond anything Dash has done to date, acting surprised and [[Main/SkewedPriorities rather proud]] at hearing his son's achievement. It's made fairly clear that this was Dash giving his A-game. Subsequently, as for physics issues many bring up, remember, each member of the family also seems to possess a slew of [[Main/RequiredSecondaryPowers Required Secondary Abilities]]. Bob and Helen for example both possess enhanced durability. Strength alone wouldn't have let Mr. Incredible tank an oncoming train as he had. All the muscle density in the world should have bothing but change the consistency of the mush he rightfully should have been. And that's to say nothing of his 'Danger Sense.' Likewise, Helen's elastic body allows her to take damage easier herself, but some part of her also possesses a bit of enhanced strength if she could pull up a manhole cover as effortlessly as she did. This troper just assumes the kids have similar secondary abilities.

* Mr. Incredible is a blonde. Elastigirl is a redhead. Jack-Jack inherited ma's red hair, Dash inherited pop's golden locks... and Violet is a ShinyMidnightBlack color. Huh? Genetics say that a blonde and redhead cannot sire a brunette. Did Helen cheat first, or is Violet's hair color a dye job?

* This is more of a translation Headscratcher, but... in French, the movie is known as ''Les Indestructibles'' and Mr. Incredible is called Monsieur Indestructible. Why didn't the French translators use the actual French name (Monsieur Incroyable) given to Incredible by Bomb Voyage in the English version?[[/folder]]

** It's how DubNameChange works. Bomb Voyage calling someone by a translated version of their name is one thing but calling a Monsieur Indestructible "Monsieur Incroyable" is another.

* It seems that during the "Three months later" period, Agent Rick may had informed the Parrs about Jack-Jack's new powers, thanks to Kari. For them, it´s imposible now to hire a babysitter enough prepared to handle Jack-Jack while the Incredibles fight crime (not to mention how countless times Rick would need to wipe out their memories), and given the fact Jack-Jack is almost invulnerable, Bob and Helen now take him along during battle. He may not be in full control of his newfound powers, but at least he can defend himself as he did against Syndrome.

* I always figured that the villains all retired when the Supers did, because what fun is villainy when there's no one around to oppose you? It's like what Tom Hanks' character says to Leo'so character at the end of ''Catch Me If You Can'' — that he knows he won't run, because there won't be anyone coming after him.

**** Probably so -- a camera designed and marketed as a "surveillance" device would generally have lower resolution and frame rate than a regular video camera, to save on cost, storage requirements, etc.

** I know the effect you're describing. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenticular_printing Lenticular printing]]. It's actually common in plastic toys and things, so I didn't look at it as a possible power Mirage had, but an effect of the video; it'd be easy enough to make a tablet with a lenticular lens, I imagine. Then again, if it is her power, you may be looking at a case of MaybeMagicMaybeMundane. See how easily she blended in when she sneaked into Bob's office. Power or not, we're never told for sure, but it does mean she works best in intelligence. She's a natural spy.
