* SapientCetaceans: "The Tick vs Nevada" featured a dolphin who, like Blowhole, wanted to conquer mankind rather than amuse it.

** "The Tick vs. Europe" was this mixed in with VisualPun and BilingualBonus. The Belgian superhero-sidekick duo of Eclair and Blitzen [[MeaningfulName both have names referring to lightning]] (éclair is French for "(flash of) lightning", blitzen is derived from the Germanic word blitz[[note]] ''blits'' is also a valid word in Flemish Belgium, as it is a Flemish/Dutch/Afrikaans word for "lightning": so the producers either got lucky here or did their homework.[[/note]]), with Eclair actually being a [[ShockAndAwe lightning user]]. On top of this, an éclair is a French pastry (which is the first thing Tick thinks when he hears her name). Naturally, Eclair and Arthur have to take down a villain known as The Breadmaster.

* {{Jerkass}}: Barry aka "the Tick"(not the Tick we know and love) big time. In his debut episode "The Tick vs The Tick" he has people think he's a hero just because he's rich and his brother in law owns [[Good-Guy Bar The Comet Club]],but acts like a jerk and is a {{Smug Super}}. When the regular Tick,Arthur,Die Fledermaus and Sewer Urchin came to the club, Barry showed up, attempted to beat the Tick up because [[Main/DisproportionateRetribution the Tick "stole his superhero name"]] , Knocked out Big Shot when he was trying to help him and pins the Tick under his shield unless the Tick gives up his name. Thankfully Arthur arrives to tell him of the {{Mad Bomber}} in the club so the Tick regains his strength and finishes Barry off. It's also implied Barry [[Laser-Guided Karma lost his name because of his actions]].

-->'''Tick:''' What's in a name anyway? If I were called Bob or Jack or venting or a piece of fruit, would I be any less a hero and if Barry were called Rupert,Max,a rainbow, would he be any less a jerk? I don't think so because a name is a rose and it only smells as sweet as you are.

* SpoofAesop: "You know, though today was the worst day of my life, I learned many things. First, the world looks a lot different when you're six inches tall and covered with feathers. Second, two heads are definitely not better than one. And finally, you can lay an egg and still feel like a man."
