* DumbMuscle: Freaks do a lot of damage and can take a lot of punishment before going down, but have one of the lowest maximum smarts statistics in the game. The value is so low in fact, that they will constantly be triggering the player's own traps when they pass by the trigger mechanism, even if their smarts are at full value. Some players take full advantage of this by installing a [[http://wiki.n1nj4.com/index.php?title=Freak_Trigger Freak-trigger]].

* EvilGloating: Gloating at prisoners increases your Notoriety. The EvilGenius avatar will also automatically go over to gloat at a Super Agent being tortured. Of course, it's possible that this will lead to the prisoner escaping. Super Agents especially. [[spoiler:John Steele will ''always'' escape if he is gloated at.]]

* FiveBadBand: Most players will wind up with one of these. It's almost always the same group, too: players usually go for getting all three "main" henchmen, and The Matron just ForTheLulz.

* HistoricalRapSheet: Criminal mastermind Lord Kane is alleged to have had a hand in every major crime of the 20th century, from starting the fire that crashed UsefulNotes/TheHindenburg to the [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand]]. He does insist that the sinking of the Titanic was [[NeverLiveItDown an honest accident]], as one of his minons appearently misheard his orders.

* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Literally what one does with Agents one kills, putting them into a large meat locker. However, this is a subversion, since the point of doing so is so that forces of justice do '''not''' find the bodies. If they do manage to get into the freezer, expect their horror to be quite genuine, and your heat rating to go up appropriately if they escape.

* VillainCred: "Notoriety", which represents how widely your misdeeds are known to the world. Increasing it is neccesary to progress in the main storyline, and is the main reason to perform side missions. It also makes sense in-story as increasing your notoriety is how you interest new henchmen in joining your organization, and as it gets higher more alliances get nervous and assign their top people to dealing with you.

* RuleOfFunny: Everything everywhere in this game. Why do ''beds'' blow up ? Why are the ninjas brightly colored ? Why do you dispose of Mariana Mamba by [[spoiler:making her ''incredibly'' obese]]? Why do you go out in the world mostly to {{troll}} the enemy agencies, instead on actually crippling/disabling them ? Because it's hilarious, and you, as a classic EvilOverlord, are a case of ContractualGenreBlindness.

** Setting a door to security level four draws in agents like bees to honey - even when the door is guarded by two giant henchmen. And has absolutely nothing of value behind it.
** One trap is literally a BigRedButton in the middle of a bullseye with arrows pointing at it, saying "DO NOT PRESS THIS BUTTON" in lights.

it. Any agent who falls for this is automatically tagged for capture -- this is the ''only'' time your minions will take that level of initiative.
** One trap is literally a BigRedButton in the middle of a bullseye with arrows pointing at it, saying "DO NOT PRESS THIS BUTTON" in lights. Sadly, it is a self-contained trap, and cannot be used as the trigger for other traps.

* {{Autocannibalism}}: Col. Blackheart lost his left leg to a Bengal Tiger, which he killed with his bare hands. It's rumored that he cooked the tiger along with ''what was left of his severed leg'' into a stew and ate it, in order to honor the beast who injured him so thoroughly.

* WorthyOpponent: This pops up with whatever Super Agent a player respects the most.

* MsFanservice: Mariana Mamba both fulfills this role and weaponizes it, seeing as she was explicitly found [[NubileSavage in the Amazon]] and spends her career running around in an orange bikini. [[spoiler: She is defeated once she loses this status]].

* RenegadeRussian: Red Ivan, a former Soviet soldier gone rogue after being betrayed by his handlers. His mind is a mess thanks to simultaneously hating both the capitalists he was trained to fight and his former Soviet comrades.

* PublicDomainArtifact: Excalibur and The Ark of The Covenant are two possibilities when doing a Type A GottaCatchThemAll for special items, except you only "need" four out of six, rather than all of them. Players may opt to steal all six anyway, because let's face it, you might as well complete the set and rub it in the faces of the Forces of Justice, eh?
