* DemotedToExtra: Frieda, especially in comparison to her role in the comic series. She starts the show as Virgil's (implied) love interest, and is actually the first civilian to speak to Static. However, after Daisy is introduced, she quickly becomes superfluous to both the plot of the show and the relationships between the characters (only becoming best friends with Daisy herself).

* IronicNickname: Static, ostensibly, refers to static electricity. It can also mean something fixed or stationary, lacking movement or vitality, or showing little change. Virgil is none of those things, in either the comics or TV series. In fact, the only time this was actually the case was when his powers first manifest, resulting in a severe case of static cling with his bed sheets.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Richie develops an awful lot of technologically advanced tools for Virgil to use early in the series. [[spoiler: It's because he's slowly developing super intelligence. Richie's blood looking the same as Virgil's through a microscope implies that he is a Bang Baby as well.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheJailer: Leech, who kidnaps and holds captive other "Banged" super-humans, the reason being his Bang-induced powers is the ability to assimilate those of others - temporarily. (Kind of like Superman's foe Parasite, but it only works on Bang Babies). Victims include the criminals Ebon, Talon, and Hotstreak, but he seriously messes up when he tried to go after Static himself, grabbing rapper and SpecialGuest Lil' Romeo instead, who is wearing a Static costume.

Added DiffLines:

* EvolvingCredits: The opening sequence for each season keeps the general "Virgil wakes up, runs into numerous villains on the way to school" framing device, but exactly which villains Virgil runs into changes with the season. More explicit status quo changes like Gear and [[spoiler:Virgil's dad finding out about his secret identity]] are also incorporated into the later season openers.
