* InterclassFriendship:
** The relationship between alien farm boy Clark Kent and human billionaire Lex Luthor actually starts with the two future arch-enemies being friends. Pretty much everybody was sceptical of the two being friends since Lex was a Luthor. Despite that, Clark did genuine consider Lex a friend and was his confidant. Sadly, the two do have a falling out thanks to all the lies and secrets being too much.
** By the time Clark and Lex's friendship was falling apart, rich boy Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow enter to be Clark's new ally. Though, it does start out rough and the two did have a falling out after Ollie [[spoiler:killed Lex]]. They do make up and Ollie actually becomes Clark's best man at his wedding to Lois.

** The episode "Hex" in Season 8 was meant as a spoof of the infamous Chlois Theory. For those unfamiliar with it, the Chlois Theory was basically an idea created by some Chloe/Clark shippers and hardcore Chloe fans who wanted Chloe Sullivan to "become" Lois Lane, stating that at some point, she would assume this identity. Oddly enough, the theory didn't die when the actual Lois Lane was ''brought into the show in Season 4''. Many Chlois theorists were rather aggressive in their hatred for the Lois Lane character when she was introduced, and there were massive {{Flame War}}s between fans of Erica Durance's Lois and the Chlois theorists who still clung to the idea that Chloe would one day "replace" Erica Durance's character as the one true "iconic Lois Lane" (a phrase thrown around a lot during these debates). This occurred ''despite'' the fact that the show's creators, producers, and actors all repeatedly stated that the Chlois theory would ''not'' come true. One can only imagine that the showrunners finally got fed up and decided to write this episode to spoof it. To make the point more obvious, after spending a day as a duplicate of Lois Lane, Chloe (after being restored to her usual self) says aloud that she will never be Lois Lane, and finally chooses a new career path: working for the Justice League full-time, declaring "Watchtower (her codename) is officially online."

* After finding Infant!Clark in the Pilot, Martha says that she and Johnathan didn't find Clark, he found them. She's speaking poetically, but Season 3's "Relic" would reveal that [[spoiler: Jor-El did indeed send his son to the Kents on purpose, having known Johnathan's father.]]

* Humanity in general became this as the series went on as ProtagonistCenteredMorality started to set in and the heroes started to take on a more NeverMyFault mentality. For example during the Kandorian arc despite them repeatedly killing and experimenting on humans when ever it became the focus of an episode the human in question would be the central antagonist.
** The most blatant would have to be when Davis Bloom killed Jimmy the heroes decided that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and became KnightTemplar however there are three things wrong with this which are never brought up.
*** Jimmy was only kill because Chloe had an affair with Davis and he decided to MurderTheHypotenuse.
*** It was Clarks decision to separate the fully aware Davis from the mindless Doomsday
*** Finally Davis isnít human

** When Lana started the Isis Foundation she began experimenting on meteor freaks in the same way as Lex but while Lexís action were treated as a MoralEventHorizon since she was searching for a cure itís ultimately treated as a good thing. She once found a sick freak instead of calling a doctor or taking him to a hospital she locked him in a room and waited for him to die. This is treated as a noble gesture.
