* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: An in-universe example. Anytime the characters have to play a game that involves heroes and villains, they are often always played on the villains side, wheras the User always plays a hero they have to stop from winning. Once a game is beaten by the User, the section the cube occupied is destroyed and the people in them turned into Nulls. Played straight when one of the game avatars, the user plays that Enzo and [=AndrAIa=] has to kill off is [[CrossesTheLineTwice Santa Claus.]]

* BatmanGambit: "Medusa Bug" revolves around different Gambits by different characters. Hex prepared the bug itself in utter secrecy, denying its very existence every step of the way, letting nothing leak of her preparations; she knew it would drive Megabyte crazy and that he would stop at nothing to steal it. He does precisely that and becomes the Bug's first victim, just as Hex intended. [[spoiler: After Hex has essentially won, Bob, with no allies left standing, can only fix the Medusa Bug by using Hex's obsession with chaos against her.]]

* {{Flanderization}}: Matrix got hit with this in season 4. In the previous season he had become a bitter person who has an intense (if justified) hate for viruses and shows no compassion for them, not even when they beg for mercy. But he also displayed regret at what he had become, and as a result of CharacterDevelopment, decided to stop letting his hatred consume him, going as far as to [[spoiler: spare the life of Megabyte, the virus he hated the most.]] Then season 4 ignored his character development, not only reverting him back to his virus-hating merciless self, but also [[TookALevelInJerkass taking it to a new level]]. In it, he had no qualms about killing infected but innocent guardians, and was extremely reluctant to [[spoiler: save the life of Hexadecimal (who was an ally of the good guys by that point)]], only agreeing to do it after [=AndrAIa=] pointed out that doing so would help them in the war with Daemon.
** To be fair, [[spoiler: meeting his former innocent self and remembering what he was before Megabyte destroyed his world probably re-ignited his hate for viruses - along with the desperate need to keep little Enzo from turning into him all over again.]]

* ExpressiveMask: Hexadecimal; her mask actually is her face, and there is ''nothing at all'' behind it. It is somewhat limited, though, as it is seemingly rigid and only changes between frames or if something blocks the view for a moment (such as passing her hand over it). This, of course, makes it even creepier. [[spoiler:After Bob manages to repair its code, it becomes fully expressive.]]

She immediately realizes how incredibly boring it would be (since she delights in chaos and craziness) and immediately unmakes the bug's effect, essentially "saving" the day from herself.
