* BadBoss: Luthor as always. Grodd points out that the entire EnemyCivilWar happens because of Lex.
** Then, Lex retorts that many of the mutineers didn't side with Grodd out of loyalty either.


* RevengeBeforeReason: Darkseid was warned that if Apokolips attacks Earth, New Genesis will retaliate, as per the Highfather's pact. Darkseid doesn't seem to care anymore. Regardless how his planet and people will end up in the end, he hints that New Genesis will be their next target once he eradicates Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* PreemptiveDeclaration: Luthor scares the Secret Society into compliance by asking them to "remember what happened to poor Goldface" when he rebelled, shortly before Luthor uses his metagene controller to burn his face.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsPetty: After Lex has Grodd be put into the airlock, he turns off the mind control device just so Grodd will die as himself realizing that 1) Lex is responsible for his impeding demise and 2) Lex has zero respects for the gorilla.

Added DiffLines:

* KneelBeforeZod: After Luthor manages to turn the mind control back on to Grodd, he forces the gorilla to kneel before him and call him the superior being. And that's before he has Grodd put himself into the airlock.


* EnemyCivilWar: Unlike several other episodes with this trope, it does not actually feature the heroes until the very end.

* KarmaHoudini: Killer Frost takes part in the mutiny against Luthor but when given a chance to save herself she does... by freezing her fellow mutineers. Even the villains on Luthor's side were shocked at the ease with which she did this.

* NoHonorAmongThieves: The Society splits in two between folks who think Luthor is a fool, has a terrible plan, is an asshole, find Grodd better, and/or figure that they have a better chance picking the side with more villains, and folks who trust Luthor and want in on his plan. Subverted in the case of Luthor's people, since them working together against Grodd's people (who are disorganized and impulsive) is what allows them to win.

Added DiffLines:

* PlotArmor: Everyone from the original Secret Society except Giganta and Sinestro side with Grodd against Lex. While Giganta is seeking revenge against Grodd for betraying her, the creators admitted Sinestro has no real reason to side with Lex over Grodd. He only sides with Lex because the creators wanted to keep him alive for the next episode. Possibly justified in that Sinestro is on the bridge with Lex (and thus can’t be roped into the initial mutiny) and then just sides with the faction not pointing a blaster in his direction.


* BatmanGambit: Lex goads Grodd into using his psychic powers by consistently insulting the gorilla’s intellect and bruising Grodd’s FantasticRacism and ego. It works and Lex uses the metagene controller on his belt to reverse and defeat Grodd. Had Grodd simply relied on his brute strength, Lex probably would have died.



* CrazyPrepared: Luthor has ways to protect himself from all the most dangerous Society members. This includes a magic talisman for Tala (hugely expensive, according to him) and a way to deflect Grodd's telepathy back onto him.

Added DiffLines:

** Tala: “Lex, I beg you!” (discounting her bloodcurdling screams)


Added DiffLines:

** Conversely, Giganta, previously Grodd’s girlfriend, sides with Lex because Grodd had earlier tried to wipe her mind to cover his tracks.
