  • Merricupsmutdrabble (Dead; last updated May 2016)

This series provides examples of:

  • Alternate Universe: Chapter 44 of Superhero Drabbles feature in a Gender Bender alternate universe

    • Underland
      • Mad Cat

  • Battle Couple
    • Merida and Hiccup make a great crime-fighting team while also being in a loving relationship.
  • Big Applesauce: Inverted, as New York City ''ironically'' has no heroes stationed in it. Any hero who appears - like when Hercules literally dropped in to kill a giant scorpion - usually is sent there, only to leave when their job is done.
    • Ever since Spectrum became a public face, younger citizens everywhere start making names for themselves as heroes, one of which being Tip Tucci in New York.

  • Dark and Troubled Past: Hiccup's troubled past with the death of his girlfriend Keiko left Hiccup to be a tragic and humorless superhero.
    • Freudian Excuse: This was later rectified with the help of his friends, but has still left him afraid of romantic relationships, lest he has his heart broken again.
  • Dating Catwoman: Hiccup once dated Heather who just so happened to be the anti-hero/villain Steel Dragon that Hiccup (as Night Fury) fought with and against on an on again off again basis.
  • Deus ex Machina: The Pumpkin King appears out of nowhere and saves Hiccup and Merida at the last minute from becoming lost in the spirit world.
  • Everyone Is Related: In Chapter 57 of Superhero Drabbles, it is revealed that Jack Skellington is cousin to La Muerta.

  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Belle is a weapons specialist, while her husband Adam/Beast prefers close-range combat.
  • Handicapped Badass: Hiccup is the leader of the Big Four, is a mechanics expert, is the smartest member of the team and has a prosthetic foot from an accident when he was younger.
  • Heroes "R" Us: NSA
  • Hidden Villain: Pitch, Drago and Gothel keep mentioning a leader, but it isn't revealed to be Mor'du until much later in the story.
  • Imaginary Love Triangle: Hiccup, Merida and Tinker Bell. While Tinker Bell does have a crush on Hiccup, Merida's assumptions about the fairy and her boyfriend comes across as crazed, if not corny.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence
    • When possessed by the Helmet of Sparda, Merida uses Hiccup as her own personal sex-slave, nearly riding the guy into a broken mess. When everything is all over, Hiccup is in a full-body cast from the waist down, admitting to Jack on how awesome it was.
    • Megaera meets back in her teammates in a wheelchair after a night of passionate sex with her boyfriend Hercules, remarking on how it "hurts so good."
  • Interrupted Intimacy: This seems to happen with Hiccup and Merida the most.
    • The first time this happened was on their first night together, both of their respective alarms go off telling them to suit up, forcing them to take a rain-check.
    • The second time this happens is when they get back together after revealing their secret identities, having been interrupted before they could finish by Toothless who was chasing after a rat made from Pitch's nightmare sand
    • The third time was during sex when Merida (then possessed by the Helmet of Sparda) was using Hiccup as her sex-slave. Limelight bursts through the walls, only to recoil in shock at the sight of her teammates. Merida challenges her to a fight, ignoring the fact that she was wearing nothing but the helmet, leaving Limelight incredibly flustered.
  • Interservice Rivalry: While not openly hostile to each other, the NSA and Area Fifty-Something do not always get along, their jobs occasionally hitting grey-areas that lead to conflict. Monger himself even referred to Dicker as a "smug bastard", hinting at a history.
  • It's Not You, It's Me: During the merger of their companies, Hiccup and Merida were dating. When Hiccup found out that Merida was a hero just like him, he broke it off, afraid of committing because of what happened to his previous girlfriend.
  • Lady of Black Magic: Gothel is a user of Black Magic and is Limelight's former adopted mother and greatest enemy.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It is hinted that Hiccup and Merida could be the reincarnations of an ancient Dragon Rider and a Celtic princess who were romantically involved and spearheaded the original fight against Mor'du. Whether this is true or not is never clarified or even acknowledged by the Big Four themselves. Only characters that were there at the time (Mor'du and the Pumpkin King) give it any serious credit.
  • The Men in Black: Whereas the NSA deals in terrestrial affairs - primarily Supers - Area 50-something is the government organization meant do deal with Alien threats. Unfortunately for the Iron Giant, General Monger isn't as tactful and sensitive in dealing with these affairs as Director Dicker.
  • Militaries Are Useless: Played for laughs when Spectrum psychically makes Area Fifty-Something soldiers vomit uncontrollably during the Big Four's battle with them.
