* CharacterLevels: Done differently than most games where the levels are set up around reflecting how experienced characters are rather than unlocking large bonuses. That is, a 1st-level character will find it harder to hit a 10th-level character than he will when he's built a few levels of his own. There are some minor stat bonuses to be had, but that's it.

* BullSeeingRed: In the comic series there's a scene where several of the heroes are being menaced by the super-strong villain known as Bull. The heroine Evergreen uses a variety of plants to attack him, only to be warned that the red blooms on some of them are making Bull angry. She counters that bulls can't see red. The problem is Bull's a mutant '''human''' who was born with his powers, not a real bull. He has a criminal record dating back to his childhood, and as he's one of the Crusaders' archenemies they'd probably have that information readily available. Not to mention that he was in fact one of a full third of the Crushers' roster named after animals from the module (Hornet, Vulture and Shrew being the others). Point being that maybe the situation's different if we're not talking about what the old myth talks about.

* AwesomeButImpractical: Blastin' Butch from ''Opponents Unlimited'' loves to use his energy blast attack because it's so cool, even though it costs eight times the amount of energy per shot vs the standard power from the rulebook for the same amount of damage. The description of the power even makes note of this and how he frequently exhausts himself unnecessarily from overrelying on it.
