* TheWorfEffect: A hero-on-villain example is invoked by Mysterio. The Elementals are played up as supposedly destroying an alternate Earth, yet they get vanquished by Mysterio, mostly single-handedly.

* TheWorfEffect: They're stated to have destroyed Mysterio’s Earth and Beck says he and the last battalion on his Earth only delayed them. When they come to the MCU-Earth, Mysterio manages to destroy all but one of them all on his own... Which is the first hint that the situation isn't quite as he alleges it to be. It turns out Mysterio actually deliberately engineered them to evoke this trope for the sake of creating a reputation for himself as a powerful hero.

* ArchEnemy: To Mysterio for killing his fellow super-soldiers, murdering his family and burning his world to cinders. Subverted in that they're actually holographic props he created to play that role.

** In addition, the characters also bear much more resemblance to the lesser-known ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' villains [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom the Elementals of Doom]], being element-based monsters that are summoned by another villain (Diablo instead of Mysterio, in this case) rather than HumanAliens from another dimension (as the regular Elementals are in the comics). The fact that they sort of merge together to form an even bigger threat has precedence in the comics as well, with their combined form being known as the Elematrix instead of being a nameless monster. Given that the Disney-Fox deal didn't complete until after the movie had wrapped post-production, their presence can be considered a clever case of WritingAroundTrademarks -- and with a third party (Sony) involved, no less.

* AStormIsComing: Ned, MJ, Betty, Flash, Mr. Harrington, Mr. Dell, and the rest of Peter's classmates are the first to sense a change in the weather pattern before the fifth and final elemental, one that resembles a giant tornado emerges and towers over Tower Bridge. This isn't its only appearance in the film as it previously appeared as a hologram projection Beck was fighting. This realization is soon lamp shaded by Peter after he gets his first look at the wind elemental and it's then and there that MJ and Peter agree that Mysterio is not what he seems which is what prompts him to move forward with the next phase of his plan and summon the Elemental Fusion.

Added DiffLines:

* WalkingSpoiler: Considering they're all close to Mysterio, and don't get revealed until his true colors are exposed, everyone becomes this by default.


* TheyLookJustLikeEveryoneElse: With the exception of Quentin Beck, all the members of Team Mysterio look ridiculously average and unnoticeable, which they exploit. Hell one of them was in one of the previous MCU movies in a memorable scene and it's unlikely the viewer will notice until it's pointed out.

* LongBusTrip: One of ''eleven long years'', which beats the previous record-holder Mr. Harrington at nine years (from 2008's ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' to 2017's ''Film/SpiderManHomecoming'').

* GenericDoomsdayVillain: All of them don't have a clear personality beyond wanting to destroy the world. This trope ends up being justified in that their backstories are left deliberately vague because they were completely made up by Mysterio's crew, who spent more time coming up with a sympathetic backstory for him instead.

** Though collectively known as the Elementals, they are much more closely based on some classic and lesser-known ''Spider-Man'' villains: Sandman (who previously appeared in ''Film/SpiderMan3'', Hydro-Man, Molten Man, and Cyclone.
