* 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. ** Not surprising, as he was ''raised'' on Earth, and though he knows he isn't one, essentially thinks of himself as a human. music. * AlliterativeName: Megamind. Metro Man [[spoiler:later Music Man]]. Megamind, (and Minion by association,) Metroman, Roxanne Ritchi. (Minion deserves an honorable mention for [[spoiler: Musicman, also fitting the "M" theme.)]]

** 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.

Condensed and clarified a trope. Also fixed a grammar error or two.
* 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.

despite the scenes in the schoolhouse where Megamind is hated by his teacher and classmates and this leading to his "Then Let Me Be Evil", this is still averted due not only to Minion, but also the prison inmates.
* FriendlessBackground: If not for Minion, this would be Megamind. ''So much''.

Granted, this is a bit hypocritical given what Megamind, had himself been doing to the city for several weeks, but [[spoiler: it still violated his expectations of Titan as a new hero that could [[ReplacementGoldfish replace]] Metro Man.]]
