  • Straight: Amazing Girl mentions to herself how her superpowers will help her whenever she uses them, such as when she is lifting an oil tanker.
  • Exaggerated: She goes into an in-depth expiation of the fictional physics behind her powers at a drop of a hat, such as to explain where the chalkboard came from.
  • Downplayed: Amazing Girl thinks to herself "Glad Iím invincible" when sheís hit by a particularly devastating attack.
  • Justified:
