** In Book 7, Melvin basically ingests some of Captainís DNA in order to get superpowers similar to his. [[Manga/MyHeroAcademia Now why does that sound familiar?]]

* TheScrappy: '''Mr. Meaner'''. A lot of fans didn't like him before, but after Book 12, they quickly grew to ''despise'' him.

* HeartwarmingMoments: [[WordOfGod Dav Pilkey]] recently revealed that while Mr. and Mrs. Sneedly are [[{{Workaholic}} constantly busy with their work]] (to the point of coming across as somewhat [[ParentalNeglect neglectful of their son]]), they actually ''do'' try their best to be GoodParents when it comes to Melvin.

** Melvin could possibly count as a JerkassWoobie (at least before he TookALevelInJerkass from Book 7 onwards), as it is kind of implied in Book 6 that his parents are such [[{{Workaholic}} workaholics]], that they come across as somewhat [[ParentalNeglect neglectful of their only son]]. They didn't even seem to ''notice'' that he had become the Bionic Booger Boy until they saw his rampage on TV. And he had been the Bionic Booger Boy for a few ''months'' at that point!

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The books are no stranger to criticizing how public schools treat neurodivergence, especially ADHD. Book 12 in particular makes a BlandNameProduct version of Ritalin the villain's mind control gas that suppresses creativity and individuality.

*** To be fair to George and Harold, their punishment didn't really fit the crime. Rather than be sent to detention or suspended, Mr. Krupp blackmailed them into performing free labor for him or else he'd let the football team beat them up.
** In the second book, they ruin a science fair out of spite because they were (rightly) banned from it due to a prank they pulled the previous year, making their punishment well-deserved.
