** Like in ''AllStarSuperman'', the villain realize the error of his ways and reforms. [[spoiler: Only difference, Megamind ends up becoming the hero, while Lex ends up in the chair but [[FaceDeathWithDignity face his execution with dignity]].]]

** Metroman isn't the first superhero to have a museum dedicated to him. [[TheFlash The Flash Museum]] has been a staple of that series for decades.

** Hal Stewart's name is a nod to [[GreenLantern Hal Jordan and John Stewart]]. [[spoiler:All three of them received their powers from an alien. Most significantly, Hal is the one who famously turned evil because of ''yellow energy.'']]

* TakeThat: After Megamind [[spoiler:kills Metro Man]] he puts up posters in front of town hall that say "No you can't" with him posing like UsefulNotes/BarackObama in his political "Yes we can" ads. Technically the posters were inspired by the HOPE posters, but you get the idea.
** There's a super-stealthy TakeThat embodied by Hal Stewart. [[spoiler:The character is an average man granted supreme power by a blue, big-headed egomaniac. [[GreenLantern Sound familiar?]] He's even named after two of the most iconic characters in that series: '''Hal''' Jordan and John '''Stewart''']]. Actually fitting in with the deconstructionist themes of the movie, he may just be a take on if someone with Green Lantern's origin was just a selfish loser.

** [[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.]]
