Added DiffLines:

* HellIsThatNoise: The Simurgh's song. The longer you listen, the more influence she has over you, until she can turn you into a ManchurianAgent. Or simply something like TheHeartless, exactly like a normal member of society save for a desire to kill as many 'uninfected' people as possible. It's a mental effect that can't be muffled or drowned out and can a large part of a city.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: Played for drama more often than comedy. This is the specific weakness of Thinkers - when their enhanced mental powers are operating off incomplete information, they tend to get things disastrously, spectacularly wrong. [[spoiler:Itís how Alexandria, one of the most powerful parahumans on Earth, met her end.]]

** The Endbringers are slowly, systematically, and inevitably destroying the world piece by piece. They have killed tens of millions of people, and caused an unbelievable amount of destruction, pain, and suffering. [[spoiler: [[WillfullyWeak All without putting any serious effort with their attacks.]] When the world begins to celebrate when one of them is finally killed, many people fall into despair as three more show up. And it's heavily implied they were accidentally created by one of the world's most powerful heroes as a byproduct of his power.]]

* FamilyValuesVillain: Marquis is old-fashioned or honorable enough to stick to the classic "no harming women or children", and avoided harming innocents... and was straight up BadAss enough to uphold those values despite living in the [[CrapsackWorld Wormverse]]. Not even [[spoiler:Jack Slash]] was able to make him break his self-imposed rules.
