YMMV: Mystery Men
- Adaptation Displacement: The movie really has nothing to do with the great Flaming Carrot comics it takes its name from, but it's easily good enough on its own.
- Alternate Character Interpretation: Is the spirit of the Bowler's father really in the bowling ball, or does the Bowler have some form of telekinesis (inherited from her father) and an Imaginary Friend and/or schizophrenia?
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The entire skunk-humping-spleen's-leg scene.
- Deader Than Disco: Tony P's stake in Casanova's takeover is to resurrect disco in general.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Casanova Frankenstein relishes a hammy moment where he eats an apple.
- Nightmare Retardant: The Seinfeldian Conversation before, during, and after Captain Amazing's death
- Retroactive Recognition: Dane Cook appears as the Waffle Man aka The Waffler during the superhero try-outs.
- Also Doug Jones is Pencil Head in the aforementioned auditions.
- Cee-Lo Green to those who have known him post-"Crazy".
