** [[spoiler: Megamind has an F in evil as well. He never kills anyone, he treats his battles with Metro Man as a game, and he has no intentions of enslaving the populace. He wants ''nothing'' but to engage in banter-filled battles and it's implied that part of the reason is to get closer to Roxy. This might be part why he always fails - he wants to design elaborate schemes (which only works if he loses so he can try another one) and impress Roxy. When he becomes a ''good guy'', however..]].



* NeverTrustATrailer: From the second trailer, this looks like a comedic "wimpy villain vs JerkAss celebrity superhero" premise. This is, however, just the first act, and even that is not quite what was expected.

-->'''Titan:''' This'll be the last time you make a fool out of me!\\
'''Megamind:''' I made you a hero. You did the fool thing all by yourself!
** Titan gets gives one to Roxanne, and he's got a bit of a point...
--> '''Roxanne:''' You and I, we worked together for a long time. I know you.
--> '''Titan:''' You don't know me! You never took the time to know me! This is the first time we've hung out socially, and it's when I'm about to destroy the city!
*** Of course, considering Hal's idea of "hanging out socially" involves hiring a ''wedding photographer,'' Roxanne was pretty justified in staying away. It's a miracle she was polite to him for so long, considering how creepy some of his advances were even ''before'' he got superpowers.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Megamind tries cleaning up the city with the dehydrating gun, but doesn't actually pick the resulting cubes. Thus, during a sad scene, [[EmpathicEnvironment it starts raining]], so all the trash reappears.

* RealityEnsues:
** [[spoiler:Megamind tells him a woman he saves would be his, but when Hal finds out that women don't work that way, he does not take it well. Also, being the self-absorbed person he is, just because he's given superpowers doesn't mean he'll use his powers for altruistic reasons. After Roxanne's rejection of Hal, Megamind learned it the hard way.]]
** [[spoiler:After finding out Megamind is Bernard, she quickly dumps him. Not because of his looks, but because of his actions. Who would want to date someone who supposedly killed a beloved superhero and took over the city? Very few.]]
** Megamind's instinctual reaction to pull out guns despite [[spoiler:the Metro City citizens going to ''thank'' him isn't that weird. He spent most of his life being terrified by them, so it would make sense he be on edge. Roxanne even points this out.]]



* SoProudOfYou: Roxie says this verbatim to [[spoiler:Minion, who is disguised as Megamind at the time]].

* 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!]]
