* ImposterForgotOneDetail: When Brain decides to take over the world by impersonating AbrahamLincoln, he's not worried that people will notice that he doesn't sound like the real Lincoln because Lincoln died before voice recording devices were invented and Brain doesn't believe there's any living person old enough to have heard Lincoln talk. The oldest living American proves him wrong about the last part.

** Brain suggests going to a place that never shuts down, where your wallet matters, and where actors and actresses slave all day. Pinky thinks they're going to Denny's.

** There was also a gag one time where Pinky accurately guessed "try to TakeOverTheWorld," but mistakenly changed to Bingo when Brain affirms it by saying bingo.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Obviously this comes up a lot because the show is a cartoon, but one episode is especially notable because it's unclear whether this trope is in effect, CartoonPhysics, or Brain's InsaneTrollLogic. Brain needs to reduce the weight of the Earth, so his plan is to convince everyone on Earth to put helium in their shoes. This fails on at least two levels: Firstly, things float when they displace air or water equal to their mass, meaning that the weight applied to the ground would be balanced out by increased air pressure. Secondly, even if helium DID magically make things lighter without an equal and opposite reaction, then whatever container the helium was currently being held in would become heavier as the people became lighter.

* MissingStepsPlan: Quite a few of Brain's plans simply consisted of creating some major disturbance that led to social chaos, on the assumption that he could then convince the humans to follow him...somehow...

* VileVillainLaughableLackey: While neither one is very threatening physically (what with being lab mice and all), the Brain, with his serious demeanor and great intellect, is far more of a threat than the spastic, dimwitted Pinky, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil who isn't even aware that he's a villain]].
