* AffairHair: Played with. The first time around we have the classic setup... except she finds ''building debris'' and correctly deduces Bob's moonlight activities.
** Played straight later when Helen finds a long strand of white hair on Mr. Incredible's suit. This along with several other clues leads her to believe that he's cheating on her, [[spoiler: although he isn't]].

* ArtisitcLicenseLaw: The rash of lawsuits that force superheroes underground could never have happened in the real world; in America, as a matter of law, it is impossible to be liable for injuries caused by trying to save a person's life. In fact, the reverse is true: you could be sued if you're capable of rendering aid and fail to do so.



* BatmanGambit: A minor one, but Bomb Voyage sticks a bomb to Buddy's cape as he leaves the crime scene, knowing the Mr Incredible would rather save an innocent child than capture a criminal. Actually worked better than expected, though; not only did it draw Mr Incredible away, the ensuing chaos made an even bigger diversion that let Bomb Voyage escape scot free. Not only that, but almost immediately after, the SuperRegistrationAct was passed, forcing any significant threats into retirement.
** Another minor example is when Syndrome [[spoiler: calls Mr. Incredible's bluff when he tries taking Mirage hostage]], knowing that [[spoiler: he]] wouldn't have the guts to go through with it. It later comes back to bite him in the ass for his JerkAss attitude in the situation.

* HollywoodLaw: In actuality, 'Good Samaritan' laws have been passed which specifically protect people from prosecution or lawsuits for damages or injuries that occur when responding to a crime or disaster. In cases like those which open the film, the judge will dismiss the case on the pleadings for failure to state a claim (that is, telling the guy "This isn't something you can sue about") before a jury is even selected.
** Justified in that the opening portion of the movie takes place in the late 1950s. Good Samaritan laws weren't widely adopted until the 1990s. Even today, in many states Good Samaritan laws only cover credentialed medical professionals and first responders, and the exemption from liability they give is limited to very specific scenarios.
** Not to mention that this is an alternate universe where Supers are well-known and relatively common. Good Samaritan laws might not have existed at all in their version of reality, perhaps even ''because'' Supers existed and were expected to take care of everything.
