* LiteralGenie: [[http://magellanverse.com/comic/djinn/ I wish I were younger]]

** A corrupt staff member tries to blackmail Maya, only to be MindRaped into transferring elsewhere. In her new post, she sells alien DNA to Brian's father, making it possible for him to delve into his MadScientist pursuits which likely never happened in the previous timeline.
** Two scientists who worked for Magellan suffered PTSD due to [=DragonKlaw's=] attack and decided to quit, averting ReedRichardsIsUseless by selling their expertise in super advanced technology to a private company. Thanks to their help, said company is able to create a highly advanced spaceship and travel to Jupiter, not knowing that hostile aliens have claimed Jupiter for themselves. Their intrusion results in the Rarg attacking Earth much earlier than in the previous timeline.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Averted with Premonitia who retired from superheroing to play the stock market and work as a philanthropist.

Some private corporations have access to some pretty advanced stuff, but the world at large doesn't have access to the magic and super science Magellan has access to due to a mixture of cost and Magellan feeling that TheWorldIsNotReady.


* AbsoluteXenophobe: The Rarg mostly keep to themselves, but it doesn't take much to set them off at all. Any perceived "attack" or intrusion on what they consider their territory will result in them attempting genocide, even if it means [[RevengeBeforeReason every single last one of them dying with their enemeis]].

[[spoiler:The Rarg setup a base on Jupiter without humanity knowing it. In both timelines, attempts to harvest Jupiter's resources results in them deciding to KillAllHumans]].



* AlphaBitch: Charisma qualifies in spades. Freya also mentions channelling her inner "alpha bitch" to properly get Brelvis to listen to her. Though she literally means "top dog".

* TheWorldIsNotReady: The reason Magellan has futuristic tech, while the world at large is only a little further than the real world. A lot of Magellan's tech is banned from public use because they believe that it is too dangerous to be widespread. Notably, Prometheus Genesis Corp strongly disagrees and resents them as elitists for keeping their toys to themselves, believing that they are holding the world back. This results in a disaster when they not only accidentally tick off an alien race while testing new tech, but also get in the way of Magellan's attempts to help due to paranoia towards their real intentions.

* AntiMagic: There is a special type of weapon that can release a pulse that shuts down many different types of superpowers, including magic and most forms of advanced technology.


** Also, we see that the lack of training and experience Red Vlad and Comrade Katya received (being used by the Communist Party more for propaganda purposes than for fighting real threats) left them with no real chance against a true threat the Q'Arth.

Added DiffLines:

* HulkingOut: Magellan USA rookie member She-Hog [[http://magellanverse.com/comic/parargdox-86/ can turn into a giant humanoid boar.]] Apparently, she can do this at will and retain her full mind, She-Hulk style.

Added DiffLines:

* BaldOfAwesome: Features numerous bald characters - Olaf, Tom Bass, Brainspike and Biff Zots amongst others - but it is Rochelle Kwan who qualifies for this label. Although she does have a braided ponytail, the rest of her head - containing her [[SuperIntelligence mega IQ brain]] is always shaved and she frequently kicks serious ass.

Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: A class textbook on extraterrestrials has a chapter titled "When First Contact Goes to Shit." Olga adds that the name is "more literal than you'd think."


* AlternateHistory[=/=]ForWantOfANail: The Magellenverse's past seems to have mostly equated to the real world (allowing for the existence of super humans), up until the Q'Arth invasion of 1972 - a Class One ApocalypseHow event that basically destroyed the Soviet Union 20 years early and paved the way for global acceptance of super humans.
