* AlternateCompanyEquivalent / CaptainErsatz / {{Expy}}: The default setting, {{Freedom City}}, is filled to overflowing with these. Players would be hard-pressed to create a character who ''isn't'' very similar to one or more existing comic book superheroes. And [[TropesAreNotBad that isn't a bad thing]].

* TheVerse: FreedomCity is the default setting and "{{Superhero}}es" is the default genre, but the system works for [[UniversalSystem just about anything]]. A few 2E supplements, like ''Mecha and Manga'' and ''Warriors and Warlocks'', for instance, provide new rules (and general guidance) for using the system for anime/manga and fantasy style games respectively.

The FreedomCity [[TheVerse 'verse]] is the default setting for ''M&M'' (and the place for FC-specific tropes).

* HitPoints: {{Averted}} completely and replaced by damage saving throws. Characters are knocked out/killed by failing the save by a large enough margin, and narrower failures penalize subsequent saves until the character is healed, making this gradually more likely. At least in earlier editions, they are available as an official optional rule.

* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: In the third edition, this is the only way anyone can die. Characters only move to "Dying" status after failing a resistance check against damage after already being incapacitated. After ''that'', they still only die if they accumulate three or more degrees of failure on a DC 15 Fortitude check, or get finished off ''again'' by another source of damage they fail to resist. Thus, barring GM fiat, in order to kill a anything, one would have to first incapacitate it, then "finish it off" with yet another attack, and then finish it off '''again''' to complete the job - [[PaddedSumoGameplay even if the target is a gerbil and the attack is a planet-destroying superweapon]].
