This series provides examples of:
- Captain Ersatz: Magaton Man himself is a combination of Captain Marvel (He has a "magic word", though his is "Overkill" instead of "Shazam"), Superman (Reporter alter ego with a pathetically transparent disguise) and basically every single over-muscled strongman hero, dialed Up to Eleven.
- Catch Phrase: "WOO!"
- Distaff Counterpart: Ms. Megaton Man.
- Dueling Comic Series: Even though Megaton Man came first, he was often compared to The Tick: big, blue, dumb, lantern jawed superhero parody with a cult following.
- Heroic Build: Exaggerated to the point of parody.
- Jungle Princess: Phantom Jungle Girl.
- Roger Rabbit Effect: Megaton Man when he stumbles into Savage Dragon's world.
- Crossover: With The Savage Dragon, as well as normalman (the latter crossover also featured appearances by everyone from Bone to Mr. Spook to Madman to Flaming Carrot to Groo the Wanderer). Wolff and Byrd, Counselors of the Macabre, also made a guest appearance in the webcomic incarnation of Megaton Man.
