* WeirdTradeUnion: The Guild of Calamitous IntentIntent, which apparently competes with smaller, less reputable villainous unions, such as The Peril Partnership, and the Fraternity of Torment.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: Inverted for a villain with Sergeant Hatred. He was originally a catch-all for whenever another villain needed to be mentioned, particularly for 21 and 24 to steal stuff from. He eventually gained a few [[{{Shotacon}} unsavory quirks]] from offhand mentions before he debuted in the series proper and was integrated into the main cast.

** Sgt. Hatred. This gets presented in a sympathetic light eventually. It is implied that the government's super soldiers serum might have made him a pedophile, and he spends a great deal of time trying to suppress his urges.
** Captain Sunshine's gimmick is walking this line. All Wonder Boy-related dialog in ''Handsom Ransom'' can be taken more than one way, but Jackson Publick's blog says that he is not a pedophile. This comes to a head as Hank is handed a tube of KY as he goes to bed at Captain Sunshine's house. Hank asks what it is for, and the butler simply advises application to the "inner thighs and buttocks." This leads the viewer to think that Hank will receive a visitation in the night, but not so. The KY is to assist in ''costume switching,'' lampshaded as the Monarch accidentally ends up in the "costume slide" and pops out at the bottom wearing a Wonder Boy outfit (that is way too small for him). The Monarch spends the next few moments unstuffing the wedgie from the costume out of his rear end.

** In Season 6 Episode 5, Tanks For Nuthin, The Monarch takes a dump in Dr. Ventures pool, which was first suggested by 21 in Season 3 Episode 8, Tears of a Sea Cow. That's a 3 season brick joke.

* HatesSmallTalk: In episode with the WaltDisney {{Expy}} Mr. Brisbee, Brock at first tries to get along with Brisbee's bodyguard, but the other is completely silent and rude. Later on Brock is bored and tries to light a cigarette but can't, at which point the other bodyguard produces a lighter, prompting Brock to say "You're all right." Of course, it was all a trick to knock him out.

** Mr. Brisby is a jaundiced view of WaltDisney, differing only in that he appears to have been limited to a wheelchair for the past twenty years, as opposed to having died and been kept frozen in the basement of Tomorrowland.

** "The Terrible Secret of Turtle Bay", the pilot, has quite a few differences from the regular show. It's the only episode animated using Adobe Flash, giving it a distinctive look. Furthermore, the episode sticks far more closely to a "Parody of WesternAnimation/JohnnyQuest" format than the series does. The twins own a pet dog, Scamp, to better match Johnny Quest (Scamp only shows up in the series in season 3, having died some time after the pilot). Dr. Venture is regarded as a brilliant scientist with a good reputation (which he does not have in the show proper where he's generally a laughing stock). He's also completely genre-blind to the military use of his invention (while in the series proper, Dr. Venture is eager to produce military hardware). Brock is far less of a father figure for the boys, in fact seeming quite happy to ditch them.
