* InstrumentOfMurder: Simon Bar Sinister built a weather machine modeled closely after a pipe organ. Each key on its keyboard could loose some kind of weather phenomenon, including typhoons and earthquakes. However, early tests of the device tended to wreck Simon's laboratory first, so he and [[TheDragon Cad Lackey]] hijacked a moon rocket to install the device on Earth's airless satellite.

* LovedINotHonorMore: "The Witch of Pickyoon"

to:

* LovedINotHonorMore: In the episode "The Witch of Pickyoon"Pickyune", Underdog meets a witch who will only wake his love interest from an eternal sleep if he helps her TakeOverTheWorld. Proving himself to be smarter than [[Franchise/StarWars Anakin Skywalker]], he flat out refuses (before accidentally saving the girl anyway with a TrueLovesKiss).

* DamselInDistress: Sweet Polly Purebred, in practically every episode.
** Subverted in [[spoiler:"The Phony Booths", where Polly takes it upon herself to stop the [[MassHypnosis Phony Booths]]. By that time, Simon Bar Sinister has gotten Underdog under his control, so he sends Underdog to stop Polly. However, LoveRedeems, and because of this, Polly saves Underdog for a change]].

* WorthlessYellowRocks: The cloud people of "The Silver Thieves" need silver but have nothing but a planet full of worthless gold! They apparently also assumed gold is just as worthless to humans, as Polly has to tell them WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis if they had offered to trade gold for silver on Earth instead of stealing it.

* [[ThanksgivingEpisode Thanksgiving Day Balloon]]: One of the best remembered Macy's balloons.
** In one [[ThanksgivingEpisode episode]], Simon Barsinister tries to stop Thanksgiving from ever happening because the Thanksgiving Day Parade was preventing him from crossing the street, keeping him from reaching a device he had cached there. [[ComplexityAddiction Given that he had a time machine, it probably would have been easier for him to either go back a few hours and cross the street then, go back a couple days and tell his subordinates that the scheme will be postponed until a day when a parade isn't blocking the street, or go back a couple weeks and move the device to the other side of the street, but these notions never occur to him.]]
