This comic provides examples of the following tropes:
- Accidental Hero: Toxo-Zombie only became Mayor of 1:18th town and thus leader because no one else would take the job. This was after he was kicked out of Cobra for being a screw up.
- Adaptive Armor: Like Queen Amadala in The Phantom Menace, Iron Man changes his armor every time he walks through a door.
- Alternate History: Darth Vader didn't destroy the Emperor but rather quit the Empire to be a father to his son Luke Skywalker.
- Alternative Character Interpretation: An In-Universe example. Most of the characters in Scale Wars are familiar but slightly different with more absurd character flaws exaggerated.
- Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Luke Skywalker is often distracted by molecules in the air.
- Bat Signal: Batman is unbeatable if he has prep time. However he has been beaten when caught off guard.
- Beware the Superman: Superman was exposed to Red Kryptonite (which has a different effect with each exposure) and now has a crush on Batman.
- Bloodless Carnage: No one can die, except maybe the audience.
- Body Snatcher: Deadpool was forced by Loki to shoot the fanboy who represented the audience. This led to the heroes being fooled into believing the comic had been cancelled.
- Breaking the Fourth Wall:
- Sometimes the cast forgets there is an audience.
Toxo-Zombie: Sure, right there see.
Agent Faces: Well ain't that a thing.
- Deadpool is often angered by others breaking the fourth wall, and insists that he should be the only one allowed to do so.
- Bruce Wayne Held Hostage: Because of Superman's advances, Batman often is too distracted to use his impressive "Outwit" ability.
- Catch Phrase: Many characters have catch phrases.
Firefly: I think you underestimate the power of the sneaky.
Even Piell: We're all gonna die!
