* QuoteMine: Regarding Stan's behavior towards Ms. Limelight, the "Last time on..." segment for the subsequent episode made him sound ''way'' worse than he really was, by making it sound like he flat-out told Ms. Limelight that she was dumb, when in reality, that quote was taken from part of a sentence where he said he ''didn't'' think she was dumb, that he thought she was smarter than she was letting on, and that it was just ObfuscatingStupidity on her part.

* JerkassHasAPoint: That said, he was correct, in a sense. What the heroes were ''expected'' to do (and did) accomplished absolutely nothing heroic. They got themselves kidnapped, pandered to their captor's demands that 2+2 = 5 until she let them go, and then she got away scott-free. Had Mindset been alone in that challenge and not endangered any of his teammates, his decision would unarguably have been the truly heroic and brave choice.

* CaptainErsatz[=/=]WritingAroundTrademarks: Mr. Mitzvah, in Season 2, originally entered as Peaceman, a character he'd invented and previously used as part of his charity work. When he learned he'd have to sign away the copyright to the character to be part of the show, he came up with the Mr. Mitzvah persona instead, which is pretty much just Peaceman with a goofier costume.

* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By His/Her Own Petard]]: Since this is a reality TV show that promotes superheroic behavior, rather than backstabbing "winner takes all" tactics, every contestant who was eliminated was legitimately eliminated due to having a failing of some kind or a major-screw up. The only exceptions were Rotiart (who wasn't a real contestant and in fact part of a challenge, thus having to leave of his own free will once his role was over) and Fat Momma (for whom no explanation for her elimination was given):

* AwesomeMcCoolName: Iron/Dark Enforcer is a pretty badass name for a superhero/villain but his secret identity has an equally badass name, Steele Chambers.

* BitchInSheepsClothing: Lumeria, in the episodes leading up to her elimination, started behaving in her TalkingHeadInterviews and in the lair less like a superhero and more like a stereotypical reality show contestant, getting into arguments with Fat Momma and being the only contestant [[MagnificentBitch confirmed to have recommended themselves for elimination for purely cynical reasons]]. Ironically, despite the nature of the show, she was not eliminated for this behavior, but rather simply for being the only contestant to fail a challenge.
