YMMV: Mighty Med

  • Anticlimax Boss: Catastrophe is built as a very serious threat and described as "the most powerful supervillain ever to terrorise the galaxy." And yet upon his first true appearance, he does nothing more than knock around a few Red Shirts, take several laser blasts, overpowers Horace and beats him up. Before having his powers taken again by Oliver and Kaz, and being defeated by Alan.
    • Subverted with The Annihilator, after formulating a huge plan and brainwashing dozens of heroes to his side including Skylar he is seemingly killed in the first five minutes of "Storms End" after a fight with his mentor Hapax the Elder when Skylar betrays and sucker blasts him. However he proves he's still alive and returns after Oliver has defeated Skylar, and shoots her. He is then killed by Hapax. But the damage is done and Skylar ends up dying of her wounds.
  • Evil Is Cool: Special mention goes to Skylar Storm in Season 2.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Last we see of Agent Blaylock, Skylar turned him into a statue. Four months later, his actor Windell D. Middlebrooks passed away, and that scene becomes a lot harder to watch.
  • Hollywood Homely: Oliver, according to both Kaz and Skylar, yet the first girl to have eyes for him was Bree Davenport.
  • Inferred Holocaust: There are well over a dozen other jars containing stolen heroes powers on The Annihilator's trophy shelves even discounting Skylar's. How many heroes has he defeated and left helpless? Are they okay?
    • Becomes Ascended Fridge Horror in Season two, when the second episode "Lair, Lair" is kicked off with a hero actually brought in near death because the Annihilator stole their powers and their nemesis attacked them while they were vulnerable. And after retrieving the stolen powers at the end of the episode, only six heroes are shown getting them back, suggesting the rest of them have actually been killed because of Annihilator's actions (though there could be more off screen).
  • Playing Against Type: In Good Luck Charlie and A.N.T. Farm the savvy one and the not so bright one are played by Bradley and Jake respectively - the roles are essentially reversed in this show.
    • However, Bradley's character is still very much careless and a magnet for mischief, like Gabe.
    • Debby Ryan, who mostly plays a somewhat introverted, nerdy, socially awkward and even Butt Monkey-ish character in her most well-known Disney Channel roles, gets to play a famous and far overconfident rock star who also happens to be a superheroine no less.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The whole series. The idea of two normal kids who work at a secret hospital for superheroes? That sounds awesome! The problem is they focus way too much on trying to make it funny. Even the Big Bad comes off as an idiot rather than an actual threat.
    • Debatable, while the series has a lot of humour, there is also a strong blend with seriousness. It happy explores the characters dynamics, relationships etc. while opening up many interesting plots. And it does have darker elements while the majority of the villains fall into Laughably Evil, they are still present as being very dangerous (for example a lot of stories actually involve heroes in the hospital needing immediate treatment following there most recent battle going wrong), many come very close to outright killing the protagonists. All the action scenes are always played straight. Likewise season two is noticeably darker, with new Big Bad the Annihilator being considerably more competent and dangerous than the previous one.
