'''Basic Trope''': A fridge Horror which a badass scene has UnfortunateImplications of Millions of civilian deaths.
* '''Straight''': AliceAndBob defeat Emperor Evulz using the [[FinishingMove Ultimate Bomb]], but it destroys the city, resulting in deaths of millions of innocent civilians.
* '''Exaggerated''': The Ultimate Bomb destroys the entire universe, but at least Emperor Evulz doesn't get to take over.
* '''Downplayed''':
** The city that was destroyed is hardly referred to again.
** The city was evacuating, so most of the city was somewhere else.
* '''Justified''':
** The city was populated entirely by Evulz' followers.
** The beginning of the episode mentioned the city's population evacuating it to escape Evulz.
* '''Inverted''': The bomb failed to go off in a lab with hundreds of experiments [[FateWorseThanDeath yearning for an end to their suffering, even in death.]] After they promised to help them no less.
* '''Subverted''': It seems like the damage from the bomb is ignored ... but three episodes later Alice and Bob are arrested and charged with mass-murder.
* '''Double Subverted''': They were framed by Evulz for a mass-murder completely unrelated to them blowing up a large city. ''That'' mass-murder is still ignored and forgotten.
* '''Parodied''': The bomb causes an EarthShatteringKaboom. Alice states that they saved the world without any irony.
* '''Zig Zagged''': ???
* '''Averted''': The aftermath is acknowledged next episode. Cue MyGodWhatHaveIDone and HeroicBSOD reactions, as well as RoaringRampageOfRevenge from the families of the dead.
* '''Enforced''': The bomb initially only [[LudicrousGibs gibbed]] Evulz and left a crater underneath , test audiences found it underwhelming so they made the explosion far bigger.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Thank goodness nobody was hurt when we set that nuke off."
* '''Invoked''': ???
* '''Exploited''': Knowing the consequences if they deployed the bomb Evulz uses it to turn the world against the heroes and gain sympathy for himself. [[ThanatosGambit Even though he was killed he still won and his empire remains in the hands of his son.]]
* '''Defied''':
** They have [[TheArchmage Charles]] mass teleport everyone except them and Evulz from the city before they deploy it.
** "Thank you?!? You expect us to thank you??? You just blew up the city! 100 million people died in that explosion!! You're both under arrest for mass-murder, and I'll see you on the electric chair for this."
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': "Oh sure a happy ending, never mind that you made Chernobyl look like a spilled drink when you blew up his space fortress! The surface should be uninhabitable after that many reactors exploded mid-operation."
* '''Deconstructed''': The heroes actions are shown to have caused wide death and destruction after the fact, leaving them to deal with the guilt, the cost, and the consequences of their actions.
* '''Reconstructed''': The heroes reexamine the situation and realize that it was a LesserOfTwoEvils decision. While the consequences of the heroes' actions were great, they ultimately did the best they could in a bad situation. They are able to stop blaming themselves after understanding that the blame should rest with the villains for causing the situation in the first place.
