* ShownTheirWork: There were times when ''Mighty Max'' got it right, most notably an episode in which Virgil, Max, and Norman were about to be mummified. Virgil gave a rather...''detailed'' ...description of the process.

* DropTheHammer: When he was known as Thor, Norman wielded the mighty warhammer Mjolnir. He uses it again when he fights the Doom Dragon. After the battle he throws it into the ocean, presumably returning it to the gods.

The resident BigBad was Skullmaster, a [[CompleteMonster dyed-in-the-wool villain]] powered by the voice of Creator/TimCurry. While Skullmaster formed an overarching storyline involving his desires to TakeOverTheWorld, there were plenty of other creatures and stand-alone enemies that encompassed many cultures.

* WorfEffect: Norman is the show's {{badass}} which means that a lot of MonstersOfTheWeek go through him to show how dangerous they are.

Not to be confused with ''MadMax''.

* NarmCharm: When we see the previous Mighty One with Virgil what we see is a Greek warrior dressed in battle attire and a 90's baseball cap. It should look ridicules but the weight the Cap carries is so great that it transcends being a mere baseball cap and makes him look like someone that should be called the Mighty One.

** Hilariously subverted with Norman in one episode. When the Doom Dragon asks him what he is called in this century he list of several legendary warriors Norman has been known as. He replies, with a dramatic lighting bolt no less, they call me... Norman.

** Somewhat justified, in that the public awareness of dinosaurs being large ancestral birds, rather than large ancestral reptiles, did not come about until the movie of JurassicPark was released in mid-1993. The scientific/paleontological community was, of course, aware, but the average person (read: the writers of the show) would be unlikely to know this at the time the episode was written.

* GenreSavvy
-->'''Evil Vampire Lady''': Loooooook into my eyes!
-->'''Max''': Aw no! I'm not falling for any of that "loooooook into my eyes" stuff!



* InsistentTerminology: Virgil is a ''fowl'', not a chicken. Inverted when Max calls a delivery man in a chicken suit a fowl, and the delivery man takes offense and insists on being called a chicken.
** FridgeBrillience: 'Chicken' used to only mean baby fowl. Perhaps Virgil doesn't like being essentially called a 'baby.'

chicken. Justified because 'chicken' used to only mean baby fowl. Perhaps Virgil doesn't like being essentially called a 'baby.'



* LiteralMinded: In "Sirius Trouble", Norman angrily calls Virgil a "mother hen", which refers to an overprotective person who meddles in other people's lives. Virgil replies that Norman is incorrect in his denotation of both species and gender.

to:

* YourVampiresSuck: [[spoiler: They ''hate'' When Max, Virgil, and Norman encounter a vampire in "Fly By Night", a lot of aspects of vampire folklore are proven to not be true to the vampires of this show's universe. The stuff about vampires being associated weak against sunlight and garlic and being unable to cross running water turns out to be complete bunk, plus it is revealed that vampires' true forms are giant flies, their association with bats. They're FLIES, DAMMIT!]]bats being the result of misconception and superstition.

* DidNotDoTheBloodyResearch: In an episode where Max must fight a swarm of killer bugs, he uses the term "bugger" a lot. For some unexplained reason, it was shown on the BBC completely unedited. [[HilarityEnsues Needless to say...]]
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Cyberskull's plan in his second appearance, "Cyberskull II: The Next Level", was to use all the electrical power on Earth to power a large robotic shell for him to inhabit. When Max eventually bests him, he realizes the flaw in his plan: Being a digital entity, he can only escape into cyberspace, and stealing the entire world's electrical power shut down all computer networks in the process.

* AbsenteeActor: Virgil and Norman do not appear in "Snakes and Laddies" (although both are still mentioned). To an extent, "Werewolves of Dunneglen," too. They do show up, but they've been arrested as murder suspects and spend the whole episode in jail while Max deals with the MonsterOfTheWeek on his own.
