reason. In another episode, he steals Harry's teddy bear, outfits it with a concealed bomb, and gives it back to Harry, only to detonate it as Harry is cooing over having his "lost" teddy back. Why did he do this? Because he thought it'd be funny.
* BalefulPolymorph: Doom's Monstertron is quite capable of doing this. In the first episode, he almost ''kills'' the penguins and the president by turning them into fish and letting them suffocate in the air, whilst in season two, he disposes of his traitorous replacement minion Miss [=DeMeanor=] by turning her into an anthropomorphic pelican, the bird she's most afraid of.

* ExpositoryThemeTune: Downplayed, but the theme tune does convey the basic plot of the show of the Avenger Penguins protecting Big City from Caractacus P. Doom.
* ExactWords: The Atomic Warhead Fountain Pen that Doom gives the Raquels in the series finale; Doom describes it as needing "one feather touched to the nib" to detonate it, which the Raquels interpret as "any attempt to use it like a pen will set it off". The reality is that Doom meant what hesaid ''literally''; it works just fine as a normal pen, but touching the nib with your fingertip (or, for a penguin, with a [[FeatherFingers feather-tip]]) will detonate it. The Raquels don't realize this until they accidentally set it off themselves.

* GlamourFailure: Due to a timing error on the Monstertron, both of the Raquels are actually hideous monsters, and whilst they can assume a beautiful form, they have a tendency to occasionally revert back to their true repulsive states.
