* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The song "Jimmy Olsen's Blues" by the Spin Doctors was a minor hit in TheNineties. It introduces the idea of Jimmy having a crush on ComicBook/LoisLane, an idea that was later revisited in ''ComicBook/SupermanBirthright'' (where Jimmy has a goofy, teenaged crush on Lois). The song is pretty cool to listen to, and is definitely an EarWorm.
* HilariousInHindsight: In one early SilverAge issue, a BunglingInventor creates a few inventions, including [[ComicBook/AntMan a way to communicate with ants]].
* JerkassWoobie: Jimmy's life wasn't the best, but sometimes he really brought it on himself.
* [[MemeticBadass Memetic]] WalkingDisasterArea
* OlderThanTheyThink: The iconic [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/07/1027_4_053.jpg Giant Turtle Man Jimmy cover]] that's been homaged many times is actually an homage itself to [[http://linesonpaper.tripod.com/ztws740.jpg this]].
* {{Squick}}: Jimmy apparently had sex with an alien butterfly-woman in ''ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis''.
* TearJerker: Among the many in the "9-11" comic book series, Volume II included [[http://www.comicbookmovie.com/images/users/uploads/17982/Jimmy.JPG this amazing image]] painted by Phil Noto.
