** Are all the personalities of the character due to Billy (the POV character) being an UnreliableNarrator? If you go by actions, Captain Hammer comes across as heroic DoggedNiceGuy while Billy is a [[VillainousCrush villainous]] StalkerWithACrush. Penny meanwhile hints at more depths with a DarkAndTroubledPast than IncorruptiblePurePureness she usually is. It's possibly that Billy is justifying himself, demonizing Captain Hammer and putting Penny on a pedestal.

* HarsherInHindsight: The fan reaction to Loki in Whedon's film of ''Film/TheAvengers'' is eerily similar to how the public react to Dr Horrible in the ending, especially considering that they had the same motives (taking over the world in an effort to make it a better place) - Loki kills hundreds of people, but he's still worshipped as a villain, just like Dr Horrible was, complete with obsessed fangirls.

** Penny, on one hand, she dates a guy who's not very subtle about what a giant JerkAss he is because he's famous and can help her with her personal goals, she's possibly emotionally cheating on said JerkAss with Billy, and she quite possibly uses [[spoiler: her last words]] just to twist the knife in someone's gut. The view of her as being full of IncorruptiblePurePureness is more Billy's projection, and looking at what she actually does shows her as flawed and shallow like everyone else in the story.

* MisaimedFandom: Some people, as highlighted in [[http://karjack.livejournal.com/656327.html?format=light this essay]], are arguing that a large part of the audience seems to have missed the point especially in the way it tackled the idea of WomenInRefrigerators and of Billy as a [[DoggedNiceGuy Nice Guy]]. Billy's complete transformation into the Dr. Horrible persona is clearly and unambiguously portrayed as a tragedy; not only because of the loss of Penny, but because it costs him the very humanity that his friend associates with. Some people are still going to prefer the WellIntentionedExtremist Dr. Horrible over the nebbish StalkerWithACrush Billy.

* HilariousInHindsight: The line "Let's all be our best" from "So They Say" is now quite reminiscent of [[{{Dollhouse}} another Whedon work.]]

* PuritySue: Penny. She is goodness taken UpToEleven. She's optimistic, active in lending support to the homeless, and is all-around cheerful. Plus, she attracts the attentions of both Billy and Captain Hammer. [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth And she's doomed, because Joss Whedon doesn't know any other way to handle a plot.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: A literal case here with the Thoroughbred of Sin himself, Bad Horse; despite only featuring in two short songs and having a brief physical cameo at the end, just about everyone loves Bad Horse.
** He's a ''[[EvilGenius supervillain]] [[TheMafia Godfather]] [[AnimalSuperheroes horse]]'' who delivers orders via ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome cowboy-themed musical telegram]]'', and has the amazing ability to sign phone calls.

* FridgeLogic: When Billy spies on Penny, at one point he sees her eating frozen yogurt.
