* CreatorBacklash: Ben Edlund wants to focus on science fiction and horror for his entertainment output. Fans keep asking for more of The Tick. He's apparently grown quite disgusted with the character as a result.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The 3rd and final season of the cartoon was never released on R1 DVD, and most likely never will be.
* NoExportForYou: Finally averted when the live-action version got its UK premiere, in January of 2011. [[FridayNightDeathSlot At 9PM on a Friday night]].
* TheOtherDarrin: After Season 1, Creator/RobPaulsen voiced Arthur for the rest of the series, replacing Micky Dolenz.
* {{Trope Namer|s}}: This series has named the following tropes:
** GravityIsAHarshMistress
** IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten
** NighInvulnerability
** NotInTheFace
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: If the creators found good enough footage, then The Tick could have appeared on ''WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast''.
** There were plans to make a SpinOff series of the Chainsaw Vigilante, but never materialised.
