* ModestyBedsheet: RealLife example: the show made quite a splash with a promotional photo of Creator/TeriHatcher wearing Superman's cape -- and nothing else. This has become something of a ''Superman'' staple; Margot Kidder originated the pose, followed by Hatcher and Creator/EricaDurance. In the case of Hatcher, the image almost [[TheInternetIsForPorn broke the internet]].

** John Spencer's character in "Lethal Weapon"--in addition to spoofing kid's show hosts like Mr. Wizard and Bill Nye-- shares similarities with The Prankster, a super-criminal who once enjoyed celebrity in ''The Uncle Oswald Show''. Like Toyman, the Prankster was apparently split into two people for this series: Bronson Pinchot previously played an ex-con who sought revenge on Lois for putting him away, using weaponized "pranks" to ruin her life in various ways.

* DecompositeCharacter: Toyman. One character in the episode "Seasons Greedings" has comic!Toyman's real name of Winslow Schott, but a later episode features a character calling himself Toyman with a different real name, Harold Kripstly.

** In the comics, Lex Luthor the First and his Australian "son" Lex Luthor the Second are the same person with the second Lex being an artificially created body that Luthor took over to cheat death. In this series, Lex Junior is real.
** The Prankster. In his debut episode, Lois investigated a character named Loomis (the Prankster's surname in the comics) but Loomis turned out to be a Red Herring. This series' prankster's name is Kyle Griffin.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted, as Clark was indeed a virgin when he and Lois got married (this was less due to ManOfSteelWomanOfKleenex concerns, but because she was the first woman he'd ever trusted with all of his secrets).



** At one point Clark breaks up with Lois on the grounds that if they move forward this will just put her in more danger. She proptly gets drawn into a relationship with a man plotting to sacrifice her, causing Clark to realize that she attracts homicidal maniacs, and the only way to protect her is to have her close.

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Preston Carpenter ("The Rival") is trying to bury the city's leading paper with his own reactionary tabloids. [[UsefulNotes/RupertMurdoch Nope, doesn't ring a bell]].
** John Spencer (''The West Wing''[='s=] Leo) shows up to play a low-rent, psychopathic Mr. Wizard clone dubbed "Mr. Gadget." So it's basically [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkJEt1UsUcs this YouTube poop]] made reality.
** Bill Church could be regarded as a fictionalized version of Bill Walton, CEO of Wal-Mart (especially in his first appearance).



* InterspeciesRomance: Lois and Clark, obviously. Handled somewhat realistically; Clark apparently has no real differences from a human man because they're able to have sex, but a later episode has Clark find out that Kryptonians and humans can't reproduce. He's disappointed, but Lois is devastated.



'''Perry:''' Oh, is that what they're call it now?

This breezy approach is reflected in the [[HotterAndSexier younger, attractive]] central cast: ''[[Series/BeverlyHills90210 90210]]'' heartthrob Dean Cain as Clark, brooding John Shea (the guy from ''Windy City''?) as ComicBook/LexLuthor, and Creator/TeriHatcher in her career-defining role as ComicBook/LoisLane.

** Dean Cain has brown eyes, as opposed to Superman's trademark blue. Lois even actively describes Superman's eyes' shade of brown to a sketch artist as being full of warmth and mystery, and nothing like Clark's "[[ImStandingRightHere mud-brown]]" eyes.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Clark passes for this. {{Showrunner}} Deborah Joy Levine points out that Dean Cain, who is 1/4 Japanese, has an unplaceable look to him that made him stick out in a crowd. This does not apply to the vanilla-looking New Kryptonians.

** Lois, a decorated investigative journalist, is unable to realize that her partner, Clark Kent, is just Superman with glasses. This was not helped by Dean Cain not changing his voice, posture, or facial expression between the two personae as much as Christopher Reeve famously did. Creator/TeriHatcher's monologue on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' parodied this, demonstrating her general inability to recognize people with glasses.

** Later episodes explain this by the fact that there are lookalikes for Superman, also played by Dean Cain, and things such as holograms and a Superman from another reality appearing at same time as Clark.

* HotterAndSexier: Not only are Dean Cain and Creator/TeriHatcher exceptionally beautiful people but after they become an OfficialCouple, the show can definitely be called the steamiest incarnation of Superman mythology. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6eH01iISqo Exhibit A.]]
