* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** This, more than any of his weapons, was the secret to Syndrome's success - but would eventually be his undoing as well.
--->'''Syndrome:''' You sly dog! You got me [[EvilGloating monologuing]]! I can't believe it.
** And rather than assume NoOneCouldSurviveThat, as one might do after [[spoiler:your enemy falls hundreds of his feet into the water]], he then throws a grenade, and even after that he sends a probe to search for him in the nearby caves.
** This even extends to some of his ''mooks''. Within seconds of seeing that unarmed children have superpowers, they start reacting to it appropriately, flanking, separating them, and responding to their powers. For example, when Violet turns invisible and hides in water, one mook throws dirt into it to watch for currents revealing her position. They probably have a lot of practice thanks to all the other supers Syndrome hunted down.



* EvilGloating: Parodied, discussed, and lampshaded as the heroes mock the villainous habit of 'monologuing'. [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy Syndrome even calls out Bob for nearly tricking him into a dangerous monologue.]] This ultimately turns out to be his undoing, however - [[spoiler: after failing to steal Jack-Jack, he takes a moment to gloat about how "this isn't over" and how he will get Incredible's son already, giving Bob enough time to throw a car at him.]]

** He also understands enough of Mirage's long-winded and indirect way of speaking that he not only [[GenreSavvy anticipates where she's going]], he compresses entire paragraphs into only a few three-word clauses.

* TheGuardsMustBeCrazy: Played straight (usually for laughs) but also averted with some mooks being DangerouslyGenreSavvy.

** Dash's teacher, Bernie, comes off as rather irritable and quick to anger. He's also completely right in suspecting Dash of playing tricks on him, but his inability to prove it makes him look a paranoid, demented fool.

* SuperSupremacist:
** Inverted by the BigBad's plan. [[spoiler:Syndrome plans to sell all his inventions that make him equal to superheroes, so that "everyone will be super! And when everyone's super... no one will be."]]
** Bonus features on the supers reveal that superhero Gamma Jack believed this.

* ItsAllMyFault: With them all taken prisoner by a megalomaniac thanks to Bob's desire to relive his glory days, Bob gives his family the apology they deserve. No-one bothers to tell Dad that Violet is in the process of setting them free.



* LittleStowaway: Dash and Violet sneak aboard their mother's plane when she flies to Syndrome's EvilLair. Drama ensues.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero
** Bob saves a suicide jumper and a trainload of civilians, only for them to sue over their collective industries, opening the floodgates to a bunch of lawsuits that drive superheroes out of business. Congratulations to Buddy also for starting the whole mess while trying to help his hero.
** Helen activates the homing device on her husband's suit, alerting Syndrome to his presence.
