The show in its day had a lot of FamilyUnfriendlyViolence and remains a great source of scares. More importantly, it was an unusual kids' show for its use of good subplots, strong pacing and suspense. Unfortunately, the toy line failed due to the major gimmick of their sheer size (almost as big as the kids in the ads!) making them too expensive for many parents to buy, and so the show had to go too.

* {{Animesque}}: Coincidentally, the animation style of ''Inhumanoids'' has much in common with 80's anime, compared to most other cartoons made in USA at the time.

* HenpeckedHusband: ''Metlar'' becomes this after falling in love with and animating the UsefulNotes/StatueOfLiberty. It gets to the point where not only does she work him worse than his former slave-master Sslither did, he's happy to de-animate her and put her back on her pedestal off-screen because he's just that sick of her nagging.

** Metlar is also described on his ActionFigureFileCard as having a weakness against water (he would rust), although [[InformedFlaw the closest we ever get to seeing it]] is a scene where he leaps out of the way of an incoming flood.

* FivePartPilot: The first story arc works just fine as a self-contained story. In fact, how quickly the Inhumanoids escape again in the next episode to allow the plot to continue seems extremely abrupt.

* MissingStepsPlot: Blackthorne learned about the Inhumanoids and then decided to set them free so he could TakeOverTheWorld. But it seems to have somewhat escaped his thought process that beings powerful enough to terrorize humanity into submission would be correspondingly difficult to control. He rarely has much of a good reason why they should treat ''this'' "flesh slug" any differently than all the other ones they want to wipe out, and some of his later plots like freeing Gagoyle and Sslither are just so he can have someone to protect him from the various people he's pissed off through a string of unfortunate judgements.

* CreepyGood: The Mutores, despite being the good guys, are definitely monstrous. The Redwoods, in particular, you would mistake for evil until they start talking.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than most cartoons and toy lines of their day. Some of the later episodes like "Primal Passions" and "The Masterson Team" veer sharply toward comedy, though.

* InfiniteSupplies: Averted, early in Earth Corps has their funding yanked and are then privately bankrolled by Sandra Shore. In a later episode it then goes on to acknowledge the high mortality rate of their equipment (especially TV's with Auger around), when Liquidator asks him to take it easy as their bank account's getting low again.

* NoEnding: "Auger for President" ends with all the villains at large again.



** Senator Masterson really isn't that much better.

to:

** Senator Masterson really isn't that much better. The first time we see him is when he's taking a bribe from Blackthorne to hand over the blueprints of Earth Corps' PoweredArmor and revoke their funding. When, let's remember, subterranean monsters bent on the extermination of humanity have already appeared with it being heavily implied the worst is yet to come. What's he going to spend the money on after Metlar purges the surface world in fire?
