* StuffBlowingUp: Both Cyborg's and Serasim's attempts to build a generator that can recharge Cy end up exploding after a few moments of use.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: Raven: "Evil beware, we have waffles."


Added DiffLines:

* EngineeredHeroism: Krall forces the witch to make him look heroic in front of the others and get their veneration through defeating the same frog-like monsters that the witch made herself.

Added DiffLines:

* GivingRadioToTheRomans: More like the "Romans" in this case managed to figure the "radio" part out for themselves to assist Cyborg with recharging his systems -- though their version [[BrickJoke fares]] [[StuffBlowingUp no better]] than Cy's earlier attempt to recharge did.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfExplodium: Cy's first attempt at making a generator to restore his depleted energy almost immediately and inexplicably explodes as soon as he starts using it, despite the fact that he only used ''Bronze Age technology'' and his own cybernetic equipment to build it. [[BrickJoke Later,]] the generator that Sarasim's people [[GivingRadioToTheRomans manage to build]] to help Cy recharge also inexplicably explodes, though it does manage to give Cyborg a little more juice before the final battle.

* HistoricalBadassUpgrade: In-universe. In the painting depicting the village's victory over Krall, Cyborg is shown shirtless and cybernetics-free. In the actual battle, he was wearing full armor.
-->'''Raven:''' Interesting. You're the only one without armor.\\
'''Cyborg:''' Yeah. Didn't need it.

-->'''Raven:''' Interesting. You're the only one without armor.\\
'''Cyborg:''' Yeah. Didn't need it.

Added DiffLines:

* DramaPreservingHandicap: At full strength, Cyborg may very well have defeated Krall even in his monster form. However, since he's trapped in the past with no way to recharge or repair himself and is [[WorfHadTheFlu already damaged and extremely low on power to the point he can't even use his sonic cannon]], he's [[CurbStompBattle easily defeated]].


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsPetty: Once Krall is turned into a monster and gains the upper hand against Cyborg, the Witch points out that the portal back to the present time is still open. Krall refuses and fully intends to kill Cyborg as payback for upstaging him at every battle.


* OutsideContextProblem: Invoked when the witch pulls Cyborg from five thousand years in the future to deal with the invaders.

* PayEvilUntoEvil: Likely the witch's intent while dealing with Krall.



* JerkassGenie: Zigzagged with the Krall's hag-like ally. She's a complete jerkass to ''him'', granting wishes in ways that are as unpleasant to him as possible, but actually quite generous to Cyborg, offering him a portal to his own time for no condition whatsoever. Unfortunately, Krall has other ideas.

Added DiffLines:

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Exactly how the battle concluded after Cyborg was pulled back to his own time can only be guessed at, but Sarasim was clearly victorious.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: "Sarasim" is a homophone of "Sarah Sims", who was Cyborg's love interest in the comics.
* NubileSavage: Sarasim, again.
