***Although I admit that this might not be valid, Jonathan died from a heart attack, due to overexerting himself while fighting Lionel Luthor and stress like Lex said, but the main cause was because of his health issues. In Season 3, when Jonathan made a deal with Jor-El to gain powers in order to bring back Clark from Metropolis when he (Clark) was on Red Kryptonite, the experience started to ruin his health due to ocerexertion of his body. So if Clark hadn't used the Red Kryptonite, then Jonathan would never have had to make a deal with Jor-El and gotten the health problems that were the main cause of his death along with the stress like Lex said. So Lex is completely right that Clark caused Jonathan's death.

* TheQuarterback: As Clark was the quarterback, the occasional episode has him dealing with the team. He is proficient enough to get a college scholarship offer, as well as translating some of Superman's bravado to leading in high school.

* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: The show itself seemed to apply this in "Persona" as there is no mention of the fact that Bizarro essentially raped Lana. Lana herself even said she was happier with Bizarro.



* NotWearingTights



* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Inverted in "Persona" as no one mentioned the fact that Lana was essentially raped by Bizarro.

** Tess Mercer, in her first two appearances, was referred to as both "an obscure regional VP" (unfit for her job of taking over for Lex Luthor) and a "pitbull in Prada." The first was said to her while they were up in the Arctic. The second, after she had firmly assumed control of her bald boss's former position. That's right, it's Sarah Palin. Of course, she's intended as a fusion of Mercy Graves and Miss Teschmacher (tending ''much'' more [[BadAss toward Mercy]].)

* UngratefulBastard: Clark saves Lana's life on a weekly basis, but she continually acts as if he's this horrible person who can't be trusted, just because he likes his privacy.

** Lionel Luthor, as revealed in the Season 2 episode ''Lineage''. It turns out that Jonathan helped save Lex's life in the aftermath of the meteor shower. Lionel says if there's anything he can do for Jonathan, to let him know. He calls this favor in to ask for help faking Clark's adoption papers (since they couldn't just say he fell out of the sky in a spaceship), and Lional complies. But then he proceeds to use this favor as an opportunity to ''blackmail'' Jonathan into convincing the Ross brothers to sell their creamed corn factory to him.

*** It should be pointed a significant one is any type of romantic relationship with Lana Lang or Chloe Sullivan. Because all fans know that [[spoiler:Lois Lane is in Clark's future.]]

* TellMeAboutMyFather: Clark asks The Fortress AI (a recording of Dear Old Dad), Comicbook/{{Brainiac}}, Raya, and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} about his parents, but mainly Jor-El. He also gets to interact with a simulation of his mom Lara (played by Helen Slater, who played Supergirl in the 1984 film ''Film/{{Supergirl}}'').

* MovieSuperheroesWearMutedColors: Surprisingly averted, given the series "[[NotWearingTights no tights,]] no flights" rule. Clark quickly settles into wearing a bright red jacket and bright blue shirt whenever he's out saving the day, to the point it becomes his default outfit when he's running around Metropolis as "the Red-Blue Blur."

* StealthHiBye: Clark's favorite way to enter or exit any scene. Usually the special effects crew are kind enough to at least give us his distinctive superspeed whoosh sound, but occasionally not, such as in "Splinter" where Clark has been infected with silver kryptonite (which gives him paranoia and hallucinations) and breaks into Lex's castle. Lex walks down a darkened hallway, looking everywhere for Clark, and when he turns around, Clark is standing where he'd just looked with no apparent way of entering the room.

** [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Kara]] picked up the family business and arguably did a better job (read:more off-screen Stealth Byes due to budget cuts).
