Added DiffLines:

* ClicheStorm: After the interesting science fiction setup, the road trip romance plot is rather by the numbers.

* ClicheStorm: Though {{YMMV}} on how cliched it is.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The soundtrack composed by Jack Nitzsche is beautiful, especially with songs like "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nip7k0m08PM Starman Leaves (End Theme)]]".

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeBrilliance: When you realize that Starman is in fact an [[EnergyBeings Energy Being]], it makes sense that Jenny could not come with him. His race could probably live anywhere - airless rocks, gas giants, the photosphere of stars, even the vacuum of space itself - and would have no need for life support on their ship.

* OlderThanTheyThink: If you're a fan of ''Literature/HarryPotter'', you could be forgiven for assuming that the O'Dares are based on the Weasleys. Like the Weasleys, they're a benevolent family of {{Red Headed Hero}}es who serve as {{the Hero}}'s allies, and their members include the love interests of two of the main characters, as well as a BlackSheep who falls in with the bad guys before having a HeelFaceTurn. Alas, ''Starman'' came out around three years before ''Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone'' did. Both families seem to have been based on the popular stereotype about red-headed Irish Catholics having tons of children.

* CompleteMonster: The first Ragdoll, Peter Merkel, was once just a two-bit thief whose gimmick was being triple jointed. Tired of being a joke, he decided to reinvent himself as a mass-murdering cult leader. Gathering together the lost, the homeless, the addicts together to fuel his growing ego, Merkell decided to revenge himself upon the world and directed multiple murders, making the streets of Opal City run red with blood, with Merkel indiscriminately targeting the innocent, with intent to target the innocent families of his enemies. Merkel took advantage of his hold over his cult to take sexual advantage of the women, and hideously abused the resulting children. His son, Peter Merkel Jr, was castrated and hideously scarred. His daughter Alex suffered worse. Having desired a little girl, Merkel subjected her to horrible sexual, mental and physical abuse. Merkel became despised until his death by the rest of the supervillain community for his treachery and depravity and stands as a unique icon of a former HarmlessVillain becoming a genuine terror.
