* GenreSavvy: Megamind and Metro Man are both really practiced at what their roles as SuperHero and SuperVillain include. Megamind is happy to submit to being defeated each time he tries an "evil" scheme. He actually ends up so depressed at having defeated his arch-nemesis that he fakes an origin story for a new SuperHero to arise and defeat his "reign of terror".

*** Metro Man's ultimate irresponsibility and his no longer caring much for Metro City and its citizens can also be seen when he juggles the three babies. While Metro Man could conceivably juggle them safely, throwing them back at their non-superpowered moms expecting them to catch them safely somehow shows he does not really care anymore.

* CaptainErsatz: The main cast are based upon characters from the Comicbook/{{Superman}} comics. Megamind is a [[CompositeCharacter mixture]] of Brainiac and Lex Luthor (with Superman's origin), [[spoiler:and by the end of Button of Doom has developed Batman-like characteristics]], Metro Man is Superman himself, and Roxanne Ritchi is Lois Lane. Hal Stewart is Jimmy Olsen with the caveat that he has always hated Superman, whereas his name is a mash-up of GreenLantern's Hal Jordan and John Stewart [[spoiler:and when he becomes Titan, he takes on aspects of Superboy-Prime]].

* AdultFear: Metro Man juggling babies and tossing them to their parents can trigger this. Sure, they don't seem to be in distress and make it out fine, but try picturing how parents in real life would react to this happening.

* AlienArtsAreAppreciated: Megamind, an alien, displays a notable fondness for Classic Rock and Pop music from Earth.
** Not surprising, as he was ''raised'' on Earth, and though he knows he isn't one, essentially thinks of himself as a human.
* AlliterativeName: Megamind. Metro Man [[spoiler:later Music Man]]. Roxanne Ritchi. (Minion deserves an honorable mention for fitting the "M" theme.)

* AlienArtsAreAppreciated: Played with. Metroman and Megamind, an alien, displays aliens, were raised on Earth and think of themselves as basically Human, so they don't know of any alien arts. They do, however, both display a notable fondness for Classic Rock and Pop music from Earth.

** Funnily enough, due to the terminology and the Act of Union in 1707, he is technically right regarding [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_of_England that last one.]]



** This is however ''slightly'' undermined by the revelation that he also has Minnie Riperton's "Loving You" on his playlist.

* FasterThanLightTravel: How fast is Metro Man? [[spoiler: In the ''nanosecond'' between the concentrated solar blast and his "death", he gets a skeleton from a "nearby" nursing school, puts his cape on it, comes back to the observatory to lauch the skeleton, and then gets away]].
** [[spoiler: It's better than that. He goes into Megamind's true location, is about to stop him, has an epiphany, goes to clear his head, reads a few self-help books, concocts the plan to fake his death, and executes it. All within a nanosecond.]] Dude is FAST.
** Only if he had to go further than about a mile.
** He also goes to a park to fly a kite and stops by a diner for fries and milkshake.
** It's much more than a nanosecond. He's gone long enough for his absence to register as a dimming/flickering on the big screen display, so in the neighborhood of 20-30 milliseconds.
