* FlorenceNightingaleEffect: When Finn's parents met, his mother was the doctor taking care of his father while his legs were broken, and Martin starts flirting almost immediately. This may or may not have just been Martin's ploy to use her as means to escape punishment.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: [[spoiler:Martin, at least for a little while, was a good man, changed by Minerva's love, and palpably caring for Finn and Minerva. He wounded the Colossus, despite being completely unarmed and having to make sure baby Finn was safe throughout, only abandoning the life he had built with his family when he was utterly forced to. Neither Minerva nor Finn will ever know him as anything but a selfish, cowardly con-artist.]]

* WoundedGazelleGambit: When Minerva asks how Martin would con her, [[InvokedTrope he points out she likes helping people so he'd pretend to look as pathetic as possible]]. In what may or may not be a coincidence, he does just that while being taken away for re-education, and she saves him.
