[[folder: YMMV Tropes For The Comic Book ''Comic Book/Invincible'' ]]

* AlasPoorScrappy: In-universe example: [[spoiler: Rex Splode.]] Few people would have admitted to liking him when he was alive, but those who knew him were all very much hurt by his death.
* ArcFatigue: The "Robot Takes Over The World" arc. In a comic that seemingly prided itself in being fast-paced (to the point that the obligatory CrisisCrossover was ''an issue long''), this arc has (comparatively) dragged on. Doesn't helps that Robot is seemingly unstoppable.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Starting out as a light-hearted superhero comic, it quickly takes a nosedive into DarkerAndEdgier territory, as the bad guys come out of the woodwork to heap piles of shit on Mark, killing thousands of people before he's able to put them down, assuming they don't get personal and attack Eve or his mother. That SHIELD expy he works for? Employs psychotic killers to make cyborg zombies [[AndIMustScream that are fully aware and horrified at their own existence]] and more than once tries to kill Mark for not marching to the beat of their drum. After a while it gets hard to care.
** Mark not only letting a villain take over the earth but abandoning it as well didn't help much either.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: The little-seen but hugely popular Allen the Alien. Kirkman has stated that, in his experience with the fandom, Allen is nearly ''everybody's'' favourite character. He's also Kirkman's favourite character, which is part of the reason why he hardly shows up; Kirkman's well aware that all it takes is a little overexposure to turn the EnsembleDarkhorse into TheScrappy.
** Astounding Wolf-Man and Techjacket. Enough that they've both spun off into their own books and have pretty much become independent characters in their own right.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: In issue 63 [[spoiler: Conquest appears to have killed Eve. She involuntarily heals herself the very next issue]]. In issue 100, [[spoiler: Mark himself appears to have been killed within the first two pages by Dinosaurus. The succeeding pages show that Dinosaurus killed a clone of Mark, who's completely unharmed.]]
** Issue 114 Mark confronts Robot, who has just assumed control of the free world in the name of logic and peace, but has killed hundreds in the process, including main characters. [[spoiler: He successfully convinces Mark to give up, letting him stay in control.]]
* MoralEventHorizon: Robot [[spoiler: murdering various regular characters, heroes and villains alike, in his mission to take over the planet.]]
* NightmareFuel: Most of the more brutal fight scenes, especially ones involving Dinosaurus.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Oliver became a lot more tolerable after he began to appreciate humans better.
* VillainSue: Robot appears to be dangerously close to this.
** Let us count the ways: He killed a ''humongous'' chunk of the super-heroes on Earth, is a WellIntentionedExtremist VillainWithGoodPublicity (''so much'' of an Extremist that two of his harshest critics are ''his own abandoned wife and child''), his Robot bodies outnumber the heroes by a number so absurd that CurbStompBattle doesn't begins to describe it, there is ''absolutely'' no place to hide or run from him ''anywhere'' on Earth, and his actions to make Earth a Utopia have so far gone so well that the few surviving heroes that have tried to play resistance so far have abandoned the fight and became his minions (it's not even a "try to make change from the inside" kind of FaceHeelTurn-they plainly said "he's in the right" and ''quit''), leaving only the hard-core fanatics (so hard-core that they are becoming TheScrappy because they spend their every on-screen moment going on about how much they hate Robot) to fight (and, again, there's no place they can hide from his surveillance-he's only waiting for them to figure out themselves that he's in the right and then come to him, or do the first move so he can justify whatever atrocity he will do to stop them).
*** One of the many reasons why this series has reached DarknessInducedAudienceApathy levels.
* TheScrappy: Oliver, [[InvokedTrope deliberately so]].
* UnpopularPopularCharacter: Rex Splode.
* WhatAnIdiot: During his initial FaceHeelTurn, Nolan is completely shocked that Mark doesn't want to join him in conquering Earth. This after almost twenty years of raising him as nothing less than a good natured hero, making no attempt to inculcate his son with his race's BlueAndOrangeMorality growing up. Possibly justified in that, even if he didn't realize it yet, his time on Earth had changed him for the better.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: PlayedForLaughs in the 'Allen the Alien' issues, which always cut away from sex scenes, with Kirkman claiming [[BlatantLies he wants to keep the comic family friendly]]. These same issues tend to contain [[SkewedPriorities some of the most violent battles in the comic, the first having Allen's intestines and eye ripped out]]. It's a ShoutOut to the MoralDissonance of the old Comics Code, which was very lenient towards violence but extremely conservative in regards to sexual content.


[[folder: YMMV Tropes For ''Music/Invincible'' By Music/Michael Jackson ]]

* BlackSheepHit: A possible ''inversion''. While 13 million copies still dwarfs all album sales in the past decade, ''Invincible'' is seen as Jackson's worst album by default, as it's often compared to his past albums, which all sold over 20+ million copies.
* CriticalDissonance: U.S. Reviews, while mixed, weren't very kind to the album, and (by Jackson's standards) it virtually bombed in its home territory, selling only two million copies. International sales and reviews, however, were much better.
* HypeBacklash \ OvershadowedByControversy: The main reasons for its underperforming.
* SnarkBait: The album earned that, particularly on how it had a NonIndicativeName - The typical joke was/is to say "Ha! MJ is certainly no longer invincible!" Even as it was followed by his career bottoming out as he left Sony.
