* AllForNothing: Bob being unable to help a mugging-victim, or else Mr. Huph will fire him for leaving work prematurely. But afterward, Bob invokes RageBreakingPoint on Mr. Huph, injures him, and gets fired anyway.

* KubrickStare: Attempted a few times by Syndrome, but it's nothing compared to Bob ''maintaining the look'' for the entire sequence with Mr. Huph and the robbery outside the building.

** While it was satisfying to watch Bob throw his jerkass boss Mr. Huph through several walls, the former gets fired instantly for his act. Even when Agent Rick cleaned up his mess, Bob still isn't let off the hook for his actions due to him still being in violation of the (implied) workplace violence policy.

* GoodTimesMontage: After Bob successfully defeats the first Omnidroid, he returns to home having found catharsis after [[ChronicHeroSyndrome penting up his need to be a hero for so many years]]. He spends more quality time with his kids, he gets them a new sports car, he and Helen spend ''a lot'' [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar more time together]] (complete with a FlirtatiousSmackOnTheAss for both of them) and he spends all of his "work time" [[TrainingMontage losing weight at the rail-yard]].


Added DiffLines:

* VillainWithGoodPublicity: While Syndrome's plan failed, his plan was to unleash a KillerRobot onto the populous and then "save" everybody and become beloved by the people.

* NotWhatItLooksLike: Bob and Lucius rescue people from a burning building and rush into the next building, only to find they're now in a jewellery store and accidentally set the alarms off. To make matters worse, police are outside and the people they rescued now look like hostages. Lampshaded by Lucius just before the cop bursts in: "We look like bad guys! Incompetent bad guys!"

** Bob [[spoiler:knocks Syndrome into his jet's intake by hurling a car at him -- the one he bought when he was on Syndrome's payroll]]. [[spoiler:Syndrome also got hoisted by making the Omnidroid smart enough to [[GoneHorriblyRight outwit him by destroying his controls]]]] Also worth mentioning is Syndrome's disregard for Mirage's life when Bob threatens to crush her to death; feeling understandably betrayed, this prompts her to aid the Incredibles in their escape from the island and their pursuit of Syndrome.

*** There's also the similarity of [[spoiler: Syndrome's general plot to that of Ozymandias: the latter releases a genetically engineered "alien" in New York City as part of his plan while the former uses a robot for the same purpose, and both of their monsters are octopus-like and cyclopean. The main difference is that Syndrome was essentially in it [[MoneyDearBoy for his own personal gain]] as well as to ultimately destroy what it means to be a superhero while Ozymandias used it to give the United States and Soviet Union incentive to stop fighting each other and therefore prevent World War III]].
** So the hero is contacted via video message by a mysterious woman, who claims that her employer wants him to come and perform a feat of strength on his private island. [[spoiler: Said employer turns out to be the BigBad, who has been busily eliminating other contestants and wants the hero's unwitting help to create a superweapon]]. [[OlderThanTheyThink Does that sound familiar]] [[Anime/PokemonTheFirstMovie to you, too...?]]

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: Averted; it is explicitly shown that Syndrome put his Omnidroid through ''many'' prototypes so each new version could kill whichever superhero beat the old version. [[spoiler:By the time he got to Mr. Incredible, its only true flaw was one he couldn't correct for: its alloy was invulnerable to everything but itself. Syndrome instead compensated by making the next version significantly stronger and faster so Mr. Incredible wouldn't have a chance to exploit that flaw, and he scaled it up ''again'' for the final battle. Even with four other supers as backup, the only reason they were able to beat it is because they had a remote that could (unreliably) control its limbs]].
* NoSell: A quick moment when Mr. Incredible throws a rock at the Omnidroid, and it doesn't do anything. It promptly begins chucking boulders at him.
