Added DiffLines:

** Everyone Peter encounters tells him Adam Monroe can't be trusted, including people Peter knows and trusts. At this point Peter has many powers, including the ability to read minds and simply never verifies Adam's story.

Added DiffLines:

* FlechetteStorm: The first time Peter and Sylar fight in Volume 1, Sylar [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuHP7FuH6n4 responds]] to Peter's attempt to hide using Claude's invisibility by using his telekinesis to levitate shards of glass from a broken mirror and fling them through the air.
-->'''Sylar:''' ''Interesting!'' I can't wait to try that one!


* InfantImmortality: Subverted with [[spoiler: the onscreen death of future-Sylar's child, Noah]].


* ImportantHaircut: The show lives off HairTropes like a king. Aside from the Evil Hair Gel mentioned above, the best example was Sylar (mercifully) cutting Peter's trademark {{Emo}} bangs.

Added DiffLines:

* HarmfulHealing: Because of their HealingFactor, both Sylar and Claire have had their regrown flesh lodge foreign objects inside.

Added DiffLines:

* GivenNameReveal: "Call me Noah".

Added DiffLines:

* FakeUltimateMook:
** There was [[AntiVillain Stephen Canfield]] who could create ''black holes'' at will.
** Then there's the Nightmare-man [[spoiler:Maury Parkman]] who was implied in Volume 1 to be even worse than Sylar, but all he ever did was give a little girl nightmares.
*** Since it was that particular little girl who described him that way, we can excuse her.


** Particularly in volume 4, Claire finds herself being fathered by both her dads, Noah and Nathan.

to:

** Particularly in volume 4, Claire finds herself being fathered parented by both her dads, Noah and Nathan.

Added DiffLines:

** Particularly in volume 4, Claire finds herself being fathered by both her dads, Noah and Nathan.
** In volume 3, Claire's biological mother, Meredith, moves in with her adoptive family.


* TheFaceless: Sylar, for a surprisingly long time after he was introduced as a character. The first time we actually see his ''face'' is in a flashback; therefore the fact that he's uncomfortably handsome is [[BeautyEqualsGoodness more of a shock]]. This is, of course, due to the fact that the first part of Season 1 was filmed before Sylar was actually cast, with veteran voice actor Maurice [=LaMarche=] providing his voice in the Sylar/Chandra phone call and the on-set Sylar being played by stunt doubles until ZacharyQuinto was hired.

Added DiffLines:

** Especially in the early episodes in Volume I, Claire seemed to do something stupid just to get injured and heal, as if to remind the audience what her power was (grabbing a hot pan out of the oven with no mitts, sticking her hand into a running garbage disposal, etc.) While it's quick shorthand for those who may have come in late, it still made it seem like gaining regeneration turned Claire into either a moron or a masochist.


* HowDoYouLikeThemApples: "Forbidden fruit. My favorite kind."


** Then subverted. [[spoiler: D.L. takes a bullet from Linderman to save Niki. Enter season two, he is dead, and we are lead to assume that is how he died. But then a flashback to four months ago has him make a full recovery from the hospital, and is indeed well enough to go fight fires and stuff...[[DroppedABridgeOnHim only to get shot by some random crackhead with the hots for Niki.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: In "Ink" Peter Petrelli, a paramedic, is sued for injuring a man by dislocating his shoulder while rescuing him. This turns out to be false, but in any case there were no grounds to sue in the first place: the Good Samaritan Law immunizes any person who accidentally injures someone when attempting to help them from liability.


* FourLinesAllWaiting
* FragileSpeedster: Daphne. Subverted by Edgar.
