* NearVillainVictory: Apart from what happens near the beginning, and [[spoiler:as close as Titan comes near the end]], discussed when Megamind describes his storied career in Metro City, and his escalating battles with his mighty rival, where Metro Man would win some, and he would ''almost'' win others.

* PacManFever: Titan is playing a game like this when Megamind comes to get him when he's late for their duel: it resembles some kind of a confusing hybrid of GeometryWars and {{Tetris}}.

* NoodleImplement: Megamind tries to bluff Roxanne by using one of these in a fake struggle between himself and Bernard:
-->'''Roxanne''': Megamind! What have you done with Bernard?
-->'''Megamind''': Bernard? Oh, yes, I'm doing horrible things to that man. I don't want to get into it, but lasers, spikes --
-->'''Megamind''' [imitating Bernard]: Oh, please, no! Not the lasers and the spikes!
-->'''Megamind''': You know the drill.
-->'''Megamind''' [imitating Bernard]: Oh no! Not the drill!

** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Megamind during his childhood narrative:
-->'''Megamind''': No matter how hard I tried... [Metro Man chooses the cross-eyed girl with crutches standing next to Megamind for dodge ball]
-->'''Megamind''': I was always the odd man out, the last one picked, the screw-up, the black sheep...
-->'''Student''': Get him! [The students throw dodgeballs at Megamind]
-->'''Megamind''': The bad boy. [Megamind turns on the force shield helmet just as the kids start throwing dodgeballs at him]
-->'''Megamind''': Was this my destiny? Wait, maybe it was! Being bad is the one thing I'm good at! Then it hit me: If I was the bad boy, [[LampshadeHanging then I was going to be the baddest boy of them all!]]

* TheUnfavorite: Even though Megamind and Metro Man are unrelated and both come from different worlds, Megamind's rivalry with Metro Man starts even when they're both heading towards Earth:
-->'''Megamind''': I set out to find my destiny. Turns out a kid from the Glaupunkt quadrant had the exact same idea. [Metro Man's baby shuttle bumps into Megamind, causing Megamind's craft to ricochet off the asteroids]
-->'''Megamind''': That was the day I met Mr. Goody Two Shoes... [Baby Metro Man gives Megamind a raspberry]
-->'''Megamind''': And our glorious rivalry was born! Could this be what I was destined for? A dream life filled with luxury? [Metro Man's baby shuttle bumps Megamind away from the mansion]
-->'''Megamind''': Apparently not! [[LampshadeHanging Even fate picks its favorites.]] No big deal, a much different fate awaited me. [Megamind's baby shuttle lands in the yard of Metro City Prison for the Criminally Gifted]

Added DiffLines:

* TakeOverTheCity: Megamind's nominal, outwardly stated goal is to rule Metro City, which apparently translates to something like "have the run of the place", with what turns out to be genuinely vague ideas about remaking it in his image or creating an army of slaves or what. [[spoiler:Tighten suggests something similar, but ''without'' Megamind's relative restraint, he ends up on his way to destroying "Tightenville".]] The movie does keep coming back to what this means for the citizens living there.

* RougeAnglesOfSatin: '''Tighten'''ville. [[note]] Note that Titan is listed on the [[http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0227490/?ref_=tt_cl_t4 IMDB]] as "Tighten". The German Wiki uses "Tighten" throughout, the English Wiki elegantly circumvents it and always refers to [[spoiler: Hal]].[[/note]]

** The giant head the Brainbots create to distract Titan during the final battle does three Shout Outs one after the other. Aside from being blue rather than green, it looks a lot like the Wizard's head in TheWizardOfOz. Then when he opens his mouth and sticks out his tongue for the real Megamind to walk out, the tongue looks again like Gene Simmons doing his usual bit, but the mouth is framed so that it also looks like Music/TheRollingStones logo.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Megamind's "Space Dad" impression is a parody of MarlonBrando as Jor-El. As per RuleOfFunny, he speaks with [[Film/TheGodfather Don Corleone's]] speech mannerisms.

** Megamind's "Space Dad" disguise is meant to look like MarlonBrando as Jor-El while notably using the speech mannerisms of [[Film/TheGodfather another famous Marlon Brando character]].
