Megamind is not a video game. The connection is tenuous at best.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: [[spoiler:Basically, Titan's rampage is the movie version of this as he uses his powers (especially the laser vision) to act out the fantasies of a thousand children playing free-roaming super-hero games]].

It's not Ominous Latin Chatting if it's not in Latin.
* [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous English Chanting]]: When Megamind is donning the Black Mamba(aaaaaaaaaa).

The Seven Basic Plots, as a work, cannot be used as a trope.
* [[TheSevenBasicPlots Regeneration/Redemption Plot]]: It'd be difficult to find a more exhaustive exploration of a character arc, from birth through raising through [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer rejection by the "normals"]] to the embracing of [[YouCantFightFate the role "destiny" forced him into]]; the [[LoveRedeems catalyst for change]], debate over which role to accept, "wooing" of the protagonist [[BecomingTheMask back toward the light]], unexpectedly challenging him[[note]](through a sort of justified HeelFaceDoorSlam followed by the revelation that he can't go back to the way it was - the rules have changed)[[/note]] to do more than ''play'' at normalcy, to [[TakingUpTheMantle pick up the hero's mantle]]... then a RefusalOfTheCall, but [[TheCallKnowsWhereYouLive it's not that easy]], and our IronWoobie[[note]]I'm not really sure which Woobie is right for him, but this one seems most likely aside from those puppy-dog eyes and "Did you ever look back?"[[/note]] protagonist has to ''[[TheDeterminator work]]'' [[EarnYourHappyEnding for his happy ending]].

** Another trailer suggests that Metro Man, upon retiring, immediately passes on his hero mantle to Megamind. [[spoiler: While this does happen towards the end, the trailer makes it out to be that the whole movie centers around Megamind trying to take Metro Man's place as the city hero.]]

** Hal's gaining Metro Man's powers from his DNA is a reference to the comic TheNail where ComicBook/LexLuthor does the same thing to Jimmy Olsen for different reasons but with similar results.

-->'''[[spoiler:Titan]]:''' You're so naive, Roxy. You see the good in everybody even when it's not there. You're living in a fantasy! There is no Easter Bunny, there is no Tooth Fairy, [[WhatAnIdiot and there is no Queen of England]]! [[ThisIsReality This is the real world, and you need to wake up!]]

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Probably had one of the worst offending example of the Trope, in which [[spoiler: it revealed that Metro Man was ''not'' dead and had simply given up superheroing]] The entire film revolved around the fact that [[spoiler: Megamind was trying to cope with having killed Metro Man]]. ** This was most likely done to reassure parents and kids that [[spoiler: Metro Man was not really going die]] so that they would actually go see it.
