* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Sewer Urchin, normally somewhat useless and meek, becomes a Badass in the episode where they have to battle his sewer-based archnemesis. Here, he is largely unflappable with just the right tools for the job and a pretty cool base of operations.

August 19 2016 saw Edlund return to the character for a brand new live action series exclusive to Amazon Prime, starring Peter Serafinowicz in the title role. The series takes a gritter approach to the setting - but not to the character.

* MagicPants: Subverted and lampshaded in "The Tick vs. Dinosaur Neil," where Dinosaur Neil's monstrous transformation renders him completely nude, causing a group of top scientists outside of The City to attempt to clothe him with the largest pair of pants.
