* Take a closer look at both Megamind's and Metroman's color schemes. Now [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_dress_(viral_phenomenon) what does that remind you of]]?

%%* BaseBreaker: Roxanne



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot[=/=]TheyPlottedAPerfectlyGoodWaste: As Megamind talks to Minion about who they should make into a hero, and how this hero should be "someone of noble heart and mind, who puts the wellfare of others above their own", he is interrupted by his mobile ringing. ''It's Roxanne''. She is ''right outside''. Because she ''tracked him down to stop him''.

* JerkassWoobie: Megamind himself [[spoiler: before his HeelFaceTurn]]. His villainy is closer to the PokeThePoodle variety, but he still regularly kidnaps someone, threatens them with bodily harm, and (unsuccessfully) tries to kill his nemesis. On the other hand, his planet was destroyed, had a potential family stolen from him by a coincidence, ''grew up in a prison'' and was ostracised as a child for (arguably) doing the exact same things Metroman did.

to:

* ItWasHisSled: Titan choosing to become a villain after being rejected by Roxanne. Thanks to the internet, it's no longer a twist anymore.

* EvilIsCool: Even after [[spoiler: his HeelFaceTurn]], the film actually embraces this trope in spite of Megamind's goofiness. This is helped when [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic music of the calibre]] of Music/{{ACDC}} and Music/GunsNRoses plays whenever he does something badass.

** Hal Stewart having a composite name of two different Green Lanterns, being voiced by Creator/JonahHill and acting clingy towards a Lois Lane expy became this when ''TheLegoMovie'' came out, which had a Green Lantern (most likely Hal Jordan) voiced by Jonah Hill acting clingy towards Lego Superman.

** To be fair, Megamind probably wouldn't have liked the idea of Roxanne being his enemy, and her being his enemy would probably have meant that Megamind's HeelFaceTurn wouldn't have happened, because there would be no push for him to step out of his comfortable role as the local supervillain.
** You have to admit, Metro Man briefly coming back to team up with Megamind would have made a pretty cool finale.



* JustForFun/XMeetsY:
** ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' meets ''[[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Dr. Horrible]]'', with just a hint of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' thrown into the mix.
** Alternately, it's ''Superman'' meets ''[[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Dr. Horrible]]'' with the same ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' splash mix.

* BrokenBase: While Megamind is generally well recieved, it differs between those who find it to be a hilarious masterpiece while others thinks that, while it is good, it could have been a lot funnier and didn't quite reach its potential.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Was Hal [[spoiler: a BitchInSheepsClothing that let his true colors show when he had powers]] or was he a DoggedNiceGuy who [[spoiler: [[TragicVillain tragically]] [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity developed an entitlement complex after obtaining his powers]]]]?
** Is MetroMan a deconstruction of the Superman paragon - who ultiamtely is willing to sacrifice everything for his own happiness? Or is he a true paragon of faith who knew that Megamind could rise to the challenge and that plunging the city into darkness was necessary for both of their happiness?
