* {{Irony}}: For all that Thunderstorm is more dangerous than Brainstorm, he's actually ''worse'' at the whole Mad Scientist thing than Brainstorm is. Brainstorm actually invents things (while Thunderstorm usually just imitates or steals Brainstorm's designs), and his failures leave himself and Earth alive for him to try again, while Thunderstorm's failure in ''Thunderstorm'' would have destroyed the planet, preventing him from ruling it (as well as likely killing him by throwing the satellite he was on out of its orbit).

* BaseBreaker: The inclusion of [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos the Slender Man]] in "Black Rain" has raised a few eyebrows.

* {{Irony}}: Jack actually seems to be a more advanced AI than Shadow. He acts almost exactly like a human, has a distinctive personality, and even a sense of humor. Shadow merely serves Thunderstorm and attacks enemies, and, if it's not to help Thunderstorm, doesn't take initiative. He even [[LogicBomb gets a bit confused]] when faced with Jack while under orders to 'kill everyone' (Jack's a robot, and so not alive). Frankly, a scientist who was able to invent Jack would be more admired than one who could invent Shadow (and not just because people would be scared of Shadow).

* MagnumOpus: The fic is perhaps the culmination of the works of Creator/{{Swing 123}} and Creator/{{Garfieldodie}}. Fitting, since it's a ContinuityCavalcade that still manages to be enjoyable without reading the earlier fics.

* AreYouSureThisIsForKids: The various references to British media in the later seasons are not exactly the sort of thing Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} would allow. "Black Rain" crosses over into full-on WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids territory.



* EvilIsSexy: Of an interesting variation, Electro the evil television is described as [[EvilMakesYouUgly wrinkly and ugly]] while the other villains appearances have been described on the show, they aren't thorough into appearance detail besides pointing out obvious details such as [[AnimeHair weird hair]] or [[MadScientist lab coats]].
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Calvin, overreacting as usual in the 2009 episode "Invasion", claims that "Japan is going to fall into the ocean!" Two years later, Japan found itself at the mercy of the ocean.

Calvin, overreacting as usual having an irrational panic attack in the 2009 episode "Invasion", claims that "Japan is going to fall into the ocean!" Two years later, Japan found itself at a massive tsunami wrecked the mercy country.
** On a less serious note, the same episode has a brief bit [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the fact that [[NotAllowedToGrowUp Calvin has stayed six for a long time]], with the MTM remarking that the writers would "think of something soon", since it was a sci-fi show. Much later, in ''Fanfic/TheCollective'', [[spoiler:it's revealed that the floating timeline was the influence
of the ocean. Chill Collective]].

** Then there's "[=SouthWest=] Pacific", which is about Calvin performing in a school play. What does the title mean, then? Well, during WorldWarII there was an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_West_Pacific_theatre_of_World_War_II area]] entitled South West Pacific, where many important things happened. The wartime definition for this? A ''theater''.
