** Subverted. [[spoiler:The nigh-invulnerable Sylar is seemingly killed mid sentence when he is stabbed in his weak spot by a man he'd turned his back on. However, he gets back up and reveals that he used his new shapeshifting powers to ''move'' that weak spot somewhere else.]]
** Played straight during the eclipse, when all "specials" lose their power. Not only is Claire suddenly sick with a common disease (her immune system never had to fight germs before), but Sylar (a watch repairman) and Elle (a teenage girl) find themselves completely outclassed by HRG who has special training and a sniper rifle.


** Volume 5: Redemption seems to be taking this as literally as possible. Victim #1: [[spoiler: "Nathan", who attempts to atone for a Ted Kennedy-esque incident from his past where he accidentally caused the death of a young woman, which only results in him being murdered by the young woman's mother... which also incidentally pops open the lid on the [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan Person Shaped Can]] that was keeping Sylar sealed away. Nice going there.]]

** Sylar deserves special mention , because it seems like his first "superpower" ( his ability to intuitively understand how things fit together)would allow him to, among other things, make a killing in business and on the stock market.
*** Sylar's example is justified in-story by his power coming with [[spoiler: an OCD-like compulsion to disassemble things in order to understand them ("disassembling" other people with powers to see how their powers work is why he's a serial killer in the first place)]], which makes holding down a real job for more than a few days more or less impossible.

* ReplacementGoldfish: [[spoiler: mind wiped Sylar becomes one for Nathan.]]
** Thus far, it seems Volume 5's main plot involves Samuel Sullivan screwing with the Heroes in order to find which one is a suitable ReplacementGoldfish for his dead brother Joseph. He seems to have finally settled on ''Sylar''. [[EvilIsNotAToy Yeah, that's going to end well...]]

** Subverted with DL who is suggested to be this at first, only to be revealed as a compassionate, kind man who wants to lead a good life and look after his wife and child, having completely abandoned his criminal past. Sadly he winds up dying in the second stupidest death on the show (right after Adam Monroe's but just before Elle's on the list of pointless death scenes).
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: In "Into Asylum", [[MasterOfDisguise Fake!Sylar]] is about to be killed by the real one. Cue Zachary Quinto's high-pitched squeaky screaming like a little 'bitch', and the Internet busting a collective gut. Seen again in "Pass/Fail," when [[spoiler: Claire sticks a pen in his eye]], with similar audience reaction.
** To be fair, it is to show that Sylar, without his menacing, is still that gawky Gabriel Gray underneath.

** Also, Peter and Sylar. Both capable of PowerCopy, but one kills to do it and the other tries to save people. And in Volume Three, they're claimed to be brothers. The Powers That Be also briefly mixed up who's the "shadow", with Sylar attempting to go straight and Peter gaining his [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity Great Power And Great Insanity]].

** On the other hand, an invincible Sylar would have been better able to capitalise on the tragedy, creating the kind of BadFuture seen in "Five Years Gone". And it's implied that Claire's presence in New York and her interaction with Nathan contribute to [[spoiler: Nathan's last-minute HeelFaceTurn]]. So it's perfectly possible that saving the cheerleader ''did'' save the world - just [[RightForTheWrongReasons not for the reasons Future Hiro thought]].
** Volume Three seemed like a Shaggy Dog Kennel, specifically where Peter and Sylar are concerned (and ESPECIALLY the latter's ludicrous redemption arc) Tell me, Peter absorbing Sylar's power was supposed to save the world HOW? Not that it matters since Peter was completely depowered shortly afterwards.

They survive but their family and countless others are killed by their captors in a mass wipe out. They go on to help form a group of people with abilities to protect their own kind against humanity by any means neccessary. Sound like Magneto's origin?
