!! From the T.V. series
* CompleteMonster: Duane Mellor from "Eater" managed to establish himself as more monstrous than a {{Wendigo}} of the same show. A Cajun SerialKiller and [[IAmAHumanitarian Eater]], Mellor was arrested for torturing, murdering and eating vast amounts of innocent people, often keeping them alive for days so he could cut pieces off and eat them. Once captured, Mellor waits until the graveyard shift before using [[HollywoodVoodoo a voodoo ritual]], devouring the souls of several officers with their hearts to take their forms and play a sadistic game of cat and mouse with the young female rookie cop on duty, solely because [[ForTheEvulz "I particularly like it when my prey is frightened."]] When his patience is exhausted, he simply goes for the kill. The only thing close to a standard Mellor showed was his disdain for being called a serial killer: He was [[InsistentTerminology An ''Eater'']], [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne big difference.]]
* IdiotPlot: "Chance". ''Everything'' the characters do is stupid.
** The plot is set into motion when the titular Chance (later revealed to be not just stupid but also insane) falls for an obvious {{Ponzi}} scheme that requires him to invest $20000 in a Chinese vase under the promise that he can sell it for $45000.
** When an antique dealer offers him only $5000, he leaves without taking the vase ''or'' the money.
** The dealer calls him on it, Chance is enraged and attacks him. The dealer is accidentally killed. Instead of calling the police and explaining what happened or taking his money and leaving, he stays to clean the mess, ''but not'' [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext some burning cigarette left on the scene by his]] {{doppelganger}}.
** The smoke sets off a fire alarm. Chance destroys it. A security guard calls the store and [[WhatAnIdiot Chance answers the phone]]. He fails to deliver the security password required and the guard goes to the shop.
** Despite being already night, the light out, the shop closed and the owner nowhere to be seen, the guard sort of buys that this guy that doesn't know where the switches are or what the password is is a new employee in his first day in the shop, and doesn't react until he discovers the dealer's body.
** Chance kills him and also stays to clean the mess. The phone rings ''again'' and he answers it ''again''. It's the dealer's wife that is waiting for him because they were supposed to start a minivacation that night and he's getting late. He pretends to be the dealer and she comes to the shop.
** Not finding her husband, the woman... uh... takes a shower? In the shop? Oh, and Chance kills her too.
** And so Chance goes back home with no money and since he has already killed three people, well, he kills his wife too while he is at it, and waits for the police to apprehend him. The end.
* NightmareFuel: The last scene of "In Sickness and in Health" is perhaps the creepiest part of the episode, especially since Maggie Lawson did such a good job.

!! From the comics
* AuthorsSavingThrow: Issue 7.1 is this to fans of [[BuckyBarnes Bucky Cap]][[spoiler: who resented the way he [[DroppedABridgeOnHim died in Issue 3]]. It's revealed that he survived Sin/Skadi's beating and has [[FakingTheDead faked his death]] to convince [[StatusQuoIsGod Steve]] to become CaptainAmerica again and to return to his Winter Soldier mantle.]]
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Spider-Man randomly leaves to check on Aunt May. This is likely to set up some time for tie-in issues to take place, but it adds almost nothing to the story and various characters call out Cap for sending him off. It's not like we see Dr. Strange check up on Wong.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: While most people are pretty sure [[spoiler: Thor]] is/will be dead (the previews for November comics even show his replacement), he's too big to stay out of the picture for long. So the ''real'' bets are on when he'll be back and how.
** Or if there'll be proof that he's not dead, just depowered or something.
* ReplacementScrappy: The guy who's supposed to replace [[spoiler: Thor]] after this event is already getting hate, because he looks like a NinetiesAntiHero, his appearance [[spoiler: and Thor's death mean that there won't be interaction between Thor and Kid!Loki for awhile]], he's not using [[spoiler: Mjolnir at all, but a weird staff with a heavy head (indicating to fans that he's not worthy to be Thor anyways, since a worthy person can lift the hammer), and for not being one of the ''many'' established people who could take over for Thor, namely Beta-Ray Bill and Thunderstrike.]] Oh, and the fact that in the books out ''right now'' they guy he's replacing isn't even dead yet.
* {{Tearjerker}}: Tony, furious with Odin, yells that if they're gods, then he'll sacrifice the only thing he can give that's worth anything...and takes a big swig of [[TheAlcoholic alcohol...]] And after so long of being clean, too.
** Fans are waiting for ''yet another'' series based on him trying to get sober again now.
