** The trope's name itself is averted with the [[NonindicativeName first season's title]], ''Big Bad Beetleborgs'' ([[IThoughtItMeant "Bad" as in "cool", not "evil"]]). None of the Beetleborgs would ever qualify as the primary villain, [[spoiler:though Shadowborg is so far the only ''evil'' Beetleborg.]]

* CurbStompBattle: Several, but most striking was when [[spoiler: Nukus easily thrashed the Beetleborgs and destroyed their powers like it was nothing. Even after they get an upgrade, their first fight with him didn't go well.]]

* EyeBeams: Nukus has them, and uses them to destroy any copies of his drawing to make it harder for him to be sent back to the two-dimensional world.

Added DiffLines:

* FusionDance: The FinalBoss monsters of both seasons were created by fusing a bunch of different monsters into one, forming Borgslayer in season 1 and Repgillian in season 2. For extra power, the Crustaceans add a bucket full of toxic waste to the mix when making Repgillian.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The kids summon Roboborg to fight the Crustaceans in town...and RealityEnsues and something ''that'' big trying to move around a small town accidentally causes a lot of damage without intending to. The kids decide to keep summoning Roboborg in town as an 'in case of emergencies' thing from then on. [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Zordon had a point about saving the giant robot only for when needed.]]

** Les Fortunes' creations are all much stronger than the Magnavores...but he's also just one guy, he can only draw them so fast and this causes problems. They try to avert this by getting his comics published, but the Beetleborgs manage to foil that scheme.

* SmellySkunk: In "Svengali, By Golly", Vexor tasks the Magnavore trio with kidnapping Flabber. [[EpicFail They somehow grab one of these by mistake without realizing it]], resulting in all of them getting sprayed, Vexor included. Vexor is obviously not happy and flat out fires them.

** Things from the comic book world seem to run on this, as when Flabber gave the kids their powers, it brought the Magnavores into the real world too and when they're defeated the heroes have to give up their powers because one cannot exist without the other. However, this also works ''against'' the Magnavores, as when they bring out villains from ''other'' comics, Flabber is able to counter it by bringing the corresponding heroes out as well. This also happens with the White Blaster Beetleborg and Shadowborg, as the former was created for the express purpose of defeating the latter and lost his powers when Shadowborg was beaten, and the Astralborgs, who were the Mantrons' balancing force.

Flabber nearly name drops the trope when informing them the defeat of the Magnavores means they have to give up their powers, describing it as a 'yin and yang' thing.

** Vexor gets fed up with the TerribleTrio being incompetent idiots and at least twice tries to create or recruit a far more competent replacement for them.

** Josh's White Blaster Beetleborg powers are explicitly made to defeat Shadowborg...but as Shadowborg points out, he's also the ''least'' [[UnskilledButStrong experienced of the lot]], having literally only been one for a few minutes. As a result while he fairs better than the PowerTrio did and actually injures Shadowborg, he can't take him one on one and only manages to barely snatch the gems containing the other three's stolen powers by the skin of his teeth.
