* CrapsackWorld: Despite the whimsical moments of the show, the setting of SRMTHFG is undeniably dark. Shuggazoom City is essentially the only city on Planet Shuggazoom with anything resembling a peaceful environment when compared to the rest of the planet that's filled with monsters, deadly environments and evil forces. Not to mention the occurrence of malevolent/insane residents of Shuggazoom attempting to destroy the city or happen to be worshipers of the [[BigBad Skeleton King]]. [[spoiler: TurnedUpToEleven when it's said that multiple planets in the cosmos including Shuggazoom house ancient [[EldritchAbomination cosmic monsters]] that will essentially destroy anything they come across when awoken. The Hyperforce and a small regiment of allies seem to be the only forces that are attempting to fight against an overwhelming wave of evil sweeping the cosmos.]] The series is essentially LovecraftLite, and without the Hyperforce the show would basically be a CosmicHorrorStory.
** And that's not even mentioning [[BloodSport Galactic Smash]], where players compete to ''destroy planets'' - inhabited or otherwise - [[ImmortalityImmorality in order to earn extra lives.]] Although one of the two best players was defeated and [[spoiler: [[KilledOffForReal permanently killed]]]] by the Hyperforce, his [[TheRival rival]] and the rest of the top 10 are [[FridgeHorror still at large]]...
** However, (a variation of) the Anthropic Principle (the real life theory, not the trope) suggests that either the [[spoiler: Skeleton King Worm]] is the ''first'' [[spoiler: Dark One]] to be unleashed, or at least, any others have not dealt galaxy- or universe-threatening levels of damage, since we do not hear of any others. Furthermore, the ''abundance'' of HeroOfAnotherStory characters we run into (like Olliana, Mobius Quint, the Super Robot Amphibian Team from "Battle Brothers", the sisters from "Girl Trouble"), as well as the signs of galaxy-spanning civilization we see during the [[spoiler: Dark One]] Pursuit arc (the truck stop housing the Lug, the space station(s) from "Girl Trouble", the various AdventureTowns - ''almost none of whom have heard of the Hyperforce'') suggest that the universe is ''much'' bigger than Shuggazoom and the Hyperforce's "sector", and makes the idea that they are the only ones who could stop a [[spoiler: Dark One]] attack/release somewhat laughable (although they're certainly among the best if not ''the'' best choices to do so, since [[spoiler: the one Dark One we see released]] destroyed several worlds [[OffscreenVillainy offscreen]]). Also, the Commodore going after Shuggazoom in the first place, as well as some of his dialogue, suggests that other planets have their own defences, even if they're not as powerful and competent as the Hyperforce. These factors would seem to keep it in LovecraftLite territory.
*** And then the ending of "Wormhole" implies there's benevolent PowersThatBe, and the ''very fact'' that ''reality exists'' suggests that ''something'' is opposing the [[spoiler: "vile force designed to destroy all reality"]]...

* WTHCostumingDepartment: The Sun Riders. A superhero bringing back the cliche of [[UnderwearOfPower wearing his underwear on the outside]], a supposed [[MsFanservice fanservice girl]] who actually dresses modestly and never has any kind of WardrobeMalfunction, and a teenage boy who wears [[BowtiesAreCool a bowtie]] with [[WhoWearsShortShorts booty shorts]] and [[WhiteGloves Mickey Mouse gloves]]. What else is there to say?!

** Mandarin apparently gets some kind of kick crossing this thing, because he does it '''''three times''.''' There's the above mentioned example, then after he's {{Face Heel Turn}}ed he [[spoiler: ''[[MindRape tortures his former teammates]]'']] in an attempt to force their obedience, then later goes on to viciously [[spoiler: [[InTheBack stab Antauri in the back of the skull]]]] with no fair warning.

Added DiffLines:

* FanNickname:
** "Skele-Mandarin" for Mandarin's Clone.
** When fans are referring to the Season 2 finale ("Antauri's Masters" and "I, Chiro") and the Season 3 opener ("The Savage Lands" two-parter) episodes as a whole, they tend to call it "The ''I, Chiro'' Saga".

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Even those who know better not to believe the AnimationAgeGhetto can't help but find the show ridiculous, simply because of how flat-out ''bizarre'' it's premise is. Despite this, there are those who pushed past it and formed quite a cult fandom around it.
