* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: Dean, as "Didae", catches Rusty having FailedASpotCheck during their rehearsal for his date with the real Didae by offering him a drink while he's running through the "life insurance" spiel with Hank, only to reveal mid-sip it could've easily been "a lethal dose of tetrodotoxin."

* WritingAroundTrademarks: As another example of the show not being allowed to use the Jonny Quest characters, "Race" Bannon (who has since been renamed Red) appears with red hair instead of white, Hadji is replaced with a Native American boy, and Bandit is replaced by a dog with black spots named Buddy.


--> '''Red Death''': Oh, you're up. Goody. We can start your history lesson. Long before there were loudmouth buff guys in spandex, there was the gentleman villain. His favourite sinister act was this: tying someone to a train track. It's simple, inexpensive, personal and deadly, ''but'' it gives you a little hope - maybe you'll escape. ''[Blind Rage's muffled screams interrupt]'' '''Lesson's ''NOT'' over, sonny!''' *sighs* Now, the gentleman villain had these old school time-bombs, three sticks of dynamite wired to an alarm clock. And what was so poetic about that is that they ''ticked''. You could ''hear'' them - tick tick tick. Nowadays they're just digital - no sound, no peril. ''[the sound of an approaching train is heard, getting closer]'' Oh, ohoho, do you hear that? ''There's'' the tick. The train is coming! Is it on this track? Tick tick tick. Maybe it's on the other track! ''Tick tick tick!'' *cackles maniacally* Not bad for an old man, huh? I'm gonna get going, let you try to escape. And if you do, tell the Peril Partnership that the Guild isn't scared of punks. If you don't, eh, sorry.

** Red Death is the only real exception, tying Blind Rage to train tracks while giving him a [[EvilGloating lecture]] on how villainy was done back in the day. [[TheUnreveal We never even found out who his assignment was because he crumpled the letter up and threw it in the dumpster.]]
*** Not that it matters. In [[Recap/TheVentureBrosS6E8RedMeansStop "Red Means Stop"]], Red Death stated bluntly that he [[HeroKiller killed]] his personal arch many years ago.

* OldGuardVersusNewBlood: How the Guild vs the Peril Partnership is framed - Blind Rage, representing the PP, constantly calls the Guild members he speaks to old, and in return, Red Death leaves him in a classic tied-to-the-railroad-tracks deathtrap while explaining why the old ways were better, and calls the Partnership 'punks', a classic insult from older generations toward younger ones.

* KickTheSonOfABitch: Considering the first impression of Blind Rage was him blackmailing the Guild and making sexist remarks towards Dr. Mrs. The Monarch, not a lot of tears were shed when Red Death took it upon himself to ambush Rage, bind him to a railroad track and give him a ToThePain-laced lecture on the simple elegance of proper villainy before leaving him to get run over by an oncoming train.
