* PossessionImpliesMastery: Averted in one episode, when Dr. Zygote initially uses his evolutionary beam to advance himself a few thousand years forward. The problem is, with his homo sapien brain in a homo superior body, he is completely incapable of using whatever gifts that advanced form would have. Virgil compares it to an infant suddenly finding itself in an adult's body. He would be unable to take advantage of them until a later episode.

**"Zygote Music" is all but a word-for-word retelling of Edmond Hamilton's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Evolved "The Man Who Evolved"]] - a MadScientist invents an [[EvolutionaryLevels Evolution Ray]] which he uses as part of a TakeOverTheWorld plot. As he evolves, he becomes more and more powerful - but by the time he's able to overcome Norman, outsmart Virgil, and outwit Max, he's not interested in taking over the world anymore, having evolved AboveGoodAndEvil.

* OlderSidekick: Maxis a twelve year old boy, so his Body Guard Norman does all the killing. Meanwhile Virgil who is even older, serves part as his boss (telling him what needs to be done) but more as a sidekick, helping him out and giving him details he'll need to know.

The show was technically MerchandiseDriven, although this aspect wasn't too noticable. It was also unusual inasmuch as Max had no real 'powers' to speak of, and its classic monster horror roots meant it never shied away from actually killing people (especially in the final plot arcs) during a time when most cartoons would NeverSayDie with Virgil even pointing out in one episode [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped "Real violence has real consequences."]]

* 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.
