- Cornered Rattle Snake: Joe, when attacked by a gang of bullies.
- Foreshadowing: By Joe’s granny:Granny: You're a Kay boy! We're as hard as stone!
- And then there is the title...
- Super Toughness: Joe. Well, once his ability awakens.
- Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: Oh, yeah. Happens to a gang of bullies at the end.
- Title Drop: At the very end.
- Traumatic Superpower Awakening: A softer type then usual, but counts.
