** Caleb is often seen using a tool looking suspiciously like a [[Series/DoctorWho sonic screwdriver]].screwdriver]], and his Nuclear Rifle looks very much like [[VideoGame/JakIIRenegade Jak's Morphgun's Blaster Mod]] (later modified a bit to look less similar). Possibly justified since Caleb (played by the writer/director) is also a huge nerd and may very well have built many of his gadgets as real, functioning Movie Shout-outs.

* CatUpATree: In season 4 episode 11, this is Hippolyte's first outdoor mission in the alternate universe. He's not happy about it, especially since the "whirlwind of teeth and claws" variation happened.

* MistakenForGay: The villain Trucidator ("Slayator") shortly suffers this from Dr. Parker. Trucidator came to Dr. Parker because he was bullied because he is black, but before the explanation was finished, Parker first thought Trucidator was victim of homophobia. Note that Trucidator's general appearance (muscular, bared chest and iron chains) makes this mistake understandable.

* {{Teleportation}}:
** One part of Caleb's superpowers is to make short-range jumps (unless his power is amplified) thanks to his over-consumption of caffeine.

* CreatorProvincialism: Curiously enough, as it employs mainly American super-villains, (and with names such as "Trueman"), the Flander's company is explicitly shown to be set in France (including with a few {{Astronomic Zoom}}s). Notably, in season 4, when CaptainErsatz of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdupont Superdupont]] (a [[TheSeventies '70s]] parody of a French superhero) and Nightrunner (a current official hero in the Franchise/{{Batman}} franchise) wonder if the company apply discount prices for compatriots.

** Lose-man can absorb the ambient "Lose"... which makes him incredibly unlucky. Sure, when he has absorbed enough, he can release it all at once in a powerful energy blast. This, he can do about... once a month.
