* ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon'': Subverted, Bacterio's gadgets almost never work right and usually fail in some spectacular way. Once in a blue moon, they'll actually work correctly, and the failure will be due to the agents using it improperly. Or because there are other things about them that they haven't been told.
** Lampshaded in a feature about the first movie in a ''Top Comic'' album, where a brief allegedly written by the Superintendent states that Bacterio was hired as a lab intern while the T.I.A. searched for an actual scientist, and the reason he's still around is that the position remains vacant.
