* MaliciousMisnaming: In "The Tick vs the Uncommon Cold", the Tick gets Thrakkorzog's goat by purposefully mis-pronouncing his name. A somewhat intelligent burn on Tick's part, as he starts with somewhat-justified misnames until he finally rubs in that he's doing it by calling him "Susan."

* AmazonianBeauty[=/=]StatuesqueStunner: Jungle Janet of the Civic-Minded Five. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0p_2i8qMh4 On one occasion,]] a smitten Tick tries to woo Janet with a rose and... a potato that grew on his armpit. She's also a bit of a deconstruction as she sometimes worries she isn't feminine enough.

* CutLexLuthorACheck: In "The Tick Vs Reno, Nevada" the henchmen is surprised when The Fin creates a fish magnet, when he thought that the dolphin was going to do something to get their gang a lot of money. Something that a device that allows you to bring hundreds of tonnes of live fish in moments to your location without need of boats, fishermen or fishing equipment clearly can't do.

* TakeThat: Tick is [[AlienAbduction abducted by aliens]] who can only speak one word. "What?" except for their official translator who has "taught myself to speak all your Earth languages. Except Esperanto. (''chuckles'') You could see ''that'' one was going nowhere." (See also EsperantoTheUniversalLanguage.)

* 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.

But it helps your appreciation of Keith [[NoPartyLikeADonnerParty Donner]], cannibal villain. [[note]]And of course a "doner" is also a style of kebab, made from what you hope is meat.[[/note]]

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.
