Fanfic / Unity (Finmonster)

Go To

Unity is a Fusion Fic crossover between multiple animated franchises by Finmonster and a sequel to Empathy.

Months have passed since the Second Battle of San Fransokyo, and the newly christened Big Hero 9 have settled into the routine of being the city's local superhero. But when a new villain with his eye on not just them, but all the world's superheroes comes knocking, the rookie heroes will have to team up with heroes both new and old to take him down.

Unity provides examples of:

  • '80s Hair: Elastigirl apparently went through a phase where she had a mohawk.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot:
    • While Baymax's programming is usually an aversion, it's when Hiro tries to install emotions into him using a chip (thinking it will help him empathize with patients) do things go pear-shaped. While the emotions are real enough for Riley to detect, they're so primitive and lacking in complexity that Baymax switches from one extreme to the next (from laughing madly to weeping non-existent tears to attempts at vomiting uncontrollably).
    • Phantasma is loyal to Enigma, and considers helping people like Baymax does illogical. They even try to forcibly reprogram the latter to their way of thinking.
  • All of the Other Reindeer:
    • Megamind was an outcast among most of the villain community due to his refusal to kill. Gru, who had similar moral scruples to murder, was the only exception.
    • Advertisement:
    • Averted when he joins the AVL's hero team, where he's accepted by almost everyone. The only exceptions are Lucy and Mr. Incredible, due to their belief he killed Metro Man, but that ends when the truth comes out.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Enigma has equipped himself with knockoffs of Big Hero 9's gear.
  • Appropriated Appellation: Upon seeing Enigma's Legion of Doom, Fred calls it a "secret supervillain syndicate". Enigma notes that "Syndicate" is a fitting term and adopts it.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Discussed by Riley's therapist Dr. Freeman, who notes that in a world of supers, she has no reason to doubt Riley's claims that she has powers.
  • Artificial Limbs: Enigma has a robotic right arm.
  • The Atoner: Part of Megamind's motivation for his hero turn is to atone for all the people who were killed by Titan during his rampage.
  • Advertisement:
  • Autobots, Rock Out!: Big Hero 9 make sure to play music while fighting crime.
  • Badass Longcoat: Violet has one as part of her new Ultraviolet costume.
  • Badass Normal: Besides everyone on the Big Hero 9 team who isn't Oh, Baymax, or Riley, Fred's dad was a superhero in the days before the ban even without any powers, which always made Bob think he was a little crazy.
  • Bad Liar: Fred, when trying to quickly come up with an excuse to get Violet out of the lab when he needs to grab his gear. She's not fooled for a second.
  • Bar Brawl: The girls night out turns into one of these when some drunk frat boys start harassing Susan and Honey, with them fighting back and GoGo and Violet coming to their defense.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Violet's outfit for the girl's night is described as doing this.
  • Batman Cold Open: The first chapter is the Big Hero 9 team intercepting and apprehending some bank robbers. It's actually titled "Cold Open".
  • Batman Gambit: Yama attacks KreiTech knowing that the heroes will intervene and arrest him, putting him in the same prison as Callaghan, which is what Enigma wants.
  • BFG: When attacking KreiTech, Yama uses a gun almost as long as he is tall. And it fires explosive so powerful that the backlash hurts Violet through her force-fields as it disrupts them.
  • Big Bad: A shadowy figure known as Enigma serves as the main villain.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The AVL hero team, having been called by Stan, arrive just in time to save Big Hero 9 from the Syndicate.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Susan gives one to Honey in Chapter 12.
  • Broken Pedestal: Metro Man to Bob. Bob's anger at Megamind quickly transfers to Wayne after learning the latter faked his death to become a singer. As he puts it, the latter essentially ditched his city and left it at Megamind's mercy because he was in the midst of a "mid-life crisis". The pedestal is broken enough to the point where Bob actually wishes Megamind killed Metro Man. When Big Hero 9 hears about this from Violet, their reactions aren't as extreme, but they are just as disappointed as Bob is.
  • Calling the Old Man Out: Abigail does this to her father in Chapter 9 when visiting him in jail, calling him out for using her as an excuse for his actions in the previous story.
  • Calling Your Attacks: Fred still has a habit of doing this.
  • Canon Discontinuity: The story more or less ignores Incredibles 2, the Monsters vs. Aliens (2013) tv series, and Big Hero 6: The Series in favor of creating its own narrative, though it does occasionally utilize elements of them, like Susan still being a Sizeshifter (albeit via a device Doctor Cockroach invented rather than an alien substance), Mirage having elements of Evelyn Deavor's backstory, and Hiro's system of delivering Big Hero 9's costumes, as a few examples.
  • Canon Welding:
    • Doctor Cockroach went to SFIT.
    • Megamind is a fan of Cockroach's and an old foe of Mr. Incredible's.
    • Mr. Incredible has apparently worked with General Monger in the past.
    • Dr. Nefario and Fred's dad were both inadvertently involved in Mirage's Start of Darkness.
    • Megamind and Gru teamed up a few times.
    • It's implied by a nightmare she has that Margo lost her parents to Titan's actions, which is later confirmed.
    • Elastigirl has apparently fought El Macho several times at some point in the past.
    • It's implied that Dr. Cockroach and Prof. Callaghan were colleagues back when the former was still human.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Lucy notes how on the nose the term "Bank of Evil" is. Gru counters that some villains like to be upfront about this sort of thing.
  • Catapult Nightmare: Margo has one of what is later confirmed to be Titan when he was destroying Metro City.
  • Cerebus Retcon: In Megamind, the destruction Titan caused to Metro City was glossed over after his defeat. Here, it's made clear that he did cause the deaths of many people during his rampage, something Megamind feels guilt over. It's eventually confirmed that Margo was orphaned by that same rampage.
  • Closet Key: Honey is this to Susan, who's apparently never been attracted to a woman before.
  • Comes Great Responsibility: Bob believes in this strongly, which is why he's so unhappy to learn that Metro Man faked his death to become a singer of all things.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Riley and Abigail have the same therapist, and Riley runs into her leaving an appointment right before her own. Abigail even lampshades it.
  • Costume Evolution: Now that she's branching out as an independent hero separate from the rest of her family, Violet has upgraded her costume. It's now purple instead of red, with a V insignia instead of an I, and is covered with a coat.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Hiro made backups of some of the team's gear, which Honey Lemon had secretly been treating and augmenting with chemicals to prepare for situations that they might face.
  • Critical Staffing Shortage: The AVL hasn't been looking too hard at Big Hero 9's civilian identities because they simply don't have the time and personnel to spare.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle:
    • The fight between the heroines and the frat boys harassing them at the nightclub. As it's a case of two superpowered people and two badass normals against a bunch of totally average drunken assholes, it's not hard to tell who ends up winning.
    • The villains of the Syndicate have no problem overwhelming the Big Hero 9, due to having much more combat experience than them. When the similarly experienced heroes from the AVL show up, the tables turn rather quickly.
    • Riley intervenes when some bully girls are attacking Margo, and even without her gear, she defeats them effortlessly, only using her powers at the end to fill them with enough fear to get them to back off.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Bob points out that this was part of the problem in Metro Man's plan to fake his death. Because of his almost comical rivalry with Megamind, he never fully understood how dangerous villains could be, and thus didn't stop to think that innocent people could get hurt without him around to save them.
  • Discontinuity Nod: Edith thinks that the Minions are mutated corn, which was their canonical origin before Minions revised things.
  • Dramatic Irony:
    • After an embarrassing first encounter, Fred figures that Violet won't want anything to do with him. Except she takes a good look at him and the others and starts to figure out they're the Big Hero 9, whom she's been ordered to investigate.
    • Hiro and Fred's dad are concerned that the AVL might be aware of Big Hero 9's secret identities and are planing on tracking them down to arrest them for violating the Super Relocation Act. Except the ending of the last story reveals that the AVL is planning on recruiting them, and other heroes. Also, Fred's dad's line about the AVL having the most sophisticated equipment around is undercut by the next scene showing Agent Dicker struggling with an old out-dated computer.
  • Dynamic Entry: Fred announces it as such when he bursts in through KreiTech's doors to confront Yama's goons.
  • Elaborate Underground Base: The base which the AVL uses for its superhero team is a large underground bunker.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • Even before his Heel–Face Turn, Megamind never killed anyone. In fact, the thought of murder disgusts him, and the deaths Titan was causing in his rampage are partly why Megamind opposed him in the end. This made Megamind an outcast in the villain community, and in hindsight, was one of the first signs that he wasn't really evil. He did put Metro Man into death traps all the time, but he never actually thought that they might work.
    • Gru held to the same standards when he was a villain as well, which is why he was one of the few villains willing to work with Megamind. Even after becoming a hero, Megamind still thinks highly of him.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While GoGo has no qualms in sneaking 18-year-old Violet into a nightclub for Girls' Night, she draws the line at bringing 12-year-old Riley and Tip there.
  • Evil Counterpart: The members of Enigma's Legion of Doom seem to largely be the villainous equivalents of Big Hero 9's members, like Honey Lemon and Bomb Voyage.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: Mirage says this upon first meeting Susan, who at the time has shrunk herself back to her non-powered size.
  • Eye Color Change: When testing the emotion chip, Baymax's eyes change color to the associated color of the emotion he is experiencing, such as red for anger, green for disgusted, yellow for happy, and blue for sad.
  • Fantastic Racism: Violet reveals that her high school boyfriend broke up with her because he couldn't accept her being a Super.
  • Fangirl: GoGo turns out to be one for Elastigirl.
  • Foil: Mr. Incredible and Metro Man, both being the strongest heroes around, both went through their own mid-life crises, but they completely differ from each other. Metro Man's was due to his growing lack of interest in heroics that lead to him faking his death for rather selfish reasons. Mr. Incredible's was because of his inability to help people without causing problems for the law that led to him taking up vigilantism to commit selfless acts of heroism.
  • Freudian Excuse:
    • Mirage joined Syndrome's campaign to destroy Supers because her parents were killed in the collateral damage of a fight between Excelsior and Dr. Nefario, with her father heavily insisting that Excelsior would be able to save them.
    • When asked by Violet, Fred admits that the reason he goes out of his way to hide that he's rich stems from a childhood of Fair Weather Friends and Gold Diggers that were only interested in him for his wealth, not himself.
  • Girls' Night Out Episode: Chapters 11 and 12 have GoGo, Honey, Violet and Susan going out to a nightclub. The only time Hiro and the other male characters show up at all is a quick Gilligan Cut in the former chapter showing that they're spending the night playing video games.
  • Gold Digger: Fred has had a few problems with these kind of people, which is part of why he doesn't make a big deal of how much money he has.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Hiro's attempt to give Baymax emotions works, but completely overwhelms him and makes him go berserk, switching between emotions almost randomly.
  • Has a Type: Susan apparently likes them tall, ironically enough for someone who is normally almost 50 feet tall.
  • Holding Out for a Hero: Mirage's hatred for supers that led her to work with Syndrome started when her mother and father died during a fight between Excelsior and Dr. Nefario when she was a child, since her father assumed that Excelsior would save them after he accidentally deflected Nefario's attack into the pier that they were on while her mother wanted to flee, and they died when the pier collapsed completely because he refused to move.
  • Hollywood Mid-Life Crisis: Bob (not inaccurately) accuses Wayne's "Faking the Dead to become a musician" stunt to be this. He can tell because he's been through one himself already.
  • Home Base:
    • Stan's mansion serves as the main base for Big Hero 9, with Stan himself usually being Mission Control.
    • The government's joint superhero team is a massive bunker built into a mountain. It's actually called Home Base.
  • Hypocrite: Lucy Wilde is against Megamind being on the team because of his past as a villain, while being friends with Mirage and knowing her past with Syndrome. To be fair, she didn't read the memo that would have let her know that Metro Man pulled a Faking the Dead and that Megamind didn't kill him.
  • I Don't Want to Ruin Our Friendship: Go Go says that this is why she spent so long putting off hooking up with Wasabi.
  • I Need a Freaking Drink: Invoked but defied. When preparing to tell Bob what really happened to Metro Man, Megamind tells him he might need a drink afterwards. Instead, Bob just gets furious and calls Metro Man out.
  • Immune to Bullets: Susan's increased density when shrunk means that bullets only tickle her in that state. Bob says that for him, they itch.
  • Internal Reveal: In Chapter 7, Yama's attack on KreiTech forces Fred to reveal to Violet that he and his friends are the Big Hero 9. In turn, she reveals her identity as Ultraviolet to him.
  • Inventional Wisdom: Subverted. When Hiro installs the emotion chip into Baymax, one of the extreme emotions he experiences is disgust and tries to vomit in-spite of physically impossibility. When Riley and Tip asks him why he programmed that into the chip, Hiro insists he didn't.
  • It's All My Fault: Hiro blames himself for the team getting curbstomped by the Syndicate, due to Enigma copying his technology.
  • Jerkass Realization: When Bob points out Metro Man's decision to fake his death indirectly led to people dying, he appears to be shaken by it, perhaps realizing his mistake for the first time.
  • Legacy Character:
    • Discussed between Hiro and Stan about how people attributed the name "Excelsior" to him, with Stan assuring Hiro that he's happy to stay in retirement and let Hiro continue heroing under the name.
    • Later, Megamind says that if he ever falls in battle, now that he's a hero, Minion can take up his mantle.
    • Invoked when Lucy goes undercover as Gru's partner during his infiltration of the Syndicate and takes the name of Scarlet Overkill. As she notes, the original Scarlet is dead, so the name is up for grabs.
  • Legion of Doom: The Syndicate, the organization led by Enigma, is composed of himself and Phantasma, as well as several villains from the Incredibles and Despicable Me franchises.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: In chapter 14, the Incredibles and Frozone spar against Team Monster, Megamind, and Minion. Mr. Incredible is especially eager to fight Megamind.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Lucy Wilde and Mirage.
  • Like Brother and Sister: GoGo admits that she sees Fred as a "sexual non-entity" similar to "[her] cousin Geon, or a lamp."
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Lucy and the assembled heroes don't know that Megamind didn't kill Metro Man and that he's still alive. Granted, it makes sense for the heroes to not know about that, but Dicker and Mirage are surprised that Lucy is completely unaware of it, leading them to assume that she never got that memo.
  • Love at First Sight: Fred develops a crush on Violet when he first meets her.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": The Big Hero 9's reactions to realizing that someone is breaking Callaghan out of prison.
  • Mind Rape: Mezzmerella inflicts this on Riley. Violet theorizes that her powers might have made it even worse, and even a couple of hours or so later, she's in a Troubled Fetal Position, haunted by the experience.
    • Phantasma was trying to do a robotic version of this to Baymax, feeling that his healthcare protocols were illogical and attempting to rewrite his core programming before being stopped.
  • The Mole: The AVL recruits Gru to infiltrate the Syndicate for them. They don't trust him fully, so they also send Lucy in with him.
  • Mood-Swinger: When Hiro tries to create a chip for Baymax that will allow him to feel emotions so he can empathize with his patients, it goes out of control and causes him to switch between the various emotions before they can take it out.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: Each of the Gru girls has a different theory of what the Minions are. Edith thinks they're mutated corn. Agnes thinks they're fairies cursed by a unicorn. Margo thinks they're some sort of evolutionary off-shot.
  • Mysterious Watcher: One is shown to be keeping tabs on the Big Hero 9 at the end of the first chapter. They turn out to be an agent of the new Big Bad's named Phantasma.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Stanley Lieber's old hero alias (now inherited by Hiro) "Excelsior" is Stan Lee's Catchphrase. There's also the fact that "Stanley Lieber" is Stan Lee's real name, and his wife is later shown to be named Joan, which is the same as the real Stan Lee's own wife.
    • Lucy Wilde incorrectly calls Big Hero 9 by their canon name, Big Hero 6.
    • Elastigirl had a mohawk in the past.
    • Ginormica can alter her size like in the TV series.
    • Mirage's backstory is similar to that of the Big Bad in Incredibles 2 — both lost loved ones due to the failure of Supers to save them, and allowed their bitterness and anger over those losses to turn towards hatred of all Supers.
    • Hiro's method of costume delivery is straight from the TV show.
    • Mezmerella from the Incredibles comic is a member of Enigma's Syndicate.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Metro Man seems to have this reaction when Bob points out to him all the flaws in his Faking the Dead plan, especially the fact that it inadvertently led to people's deaths.
  • Named by the Adaptation:
    • Metro Man's civilian name was never revealed in canon. Here, it's revealed to be Wayne Scott.
    • Dr. Nefario's name is revealed to be Joseph.
  • Name's the Same: In-Universe, we have both Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible and B.O.B. the slime monster.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • Megamind has apparently had numerous encounters with Mr. Incredible in the past, many of which contribute to Mr. Incredible's strong hate for the reformed villain. Likewise, Megamind and Gru apparently teamed up on occasion, with Mr. Incredible and Metro Man needing to team up to beat them.
    • Wasabi apparently once almost cut the lab building in half during an experiment.
    • Something apparently happened to Dr. Nefario's family, that Stanley blames himself for, that drove him to villainy.
    • Mr. Perkins knew Scarlet Overkill. Also, the original Scarlet is apparently dead, but with no details on how.
  • No-Sell:
    • During the nightclub fight, Susan is completely unharmed by anything her opponents throw at her, thanks to the nature of her Sizeshifter powers making her virtually invulnerable at normal human size.
    • Mezzmerella's psychic powers have no effect on B.O.B., presumably because he has no brain.
  • Not So Different: Hiro reminds Megamind a lot of himself, which he finds a bit worrying given his own past as a villain.
  • Odd Friendship: Plucky, energetic AVL operative Lucy Wilde and Femme Fatale former-supervillain accomplice Mirage. When Lucy feels that Mirage is being treated unfairly when she is sent to pick up the Monster team from Monger, even calling Mirage her best friend with Mirage doing nothing to deny this.
  • Oh, Crap!: Megamind's reaction to realizing he's in the same room as Mr. Incredible, who has an old grudge against him.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, as Mr. Incredible and "Benzoate Ostylezene Bicarbonate" meet, with the Monsters observing the challenges of both individuals being known as "Bob" with no clear way to distinguish one from the other when calling them by name.
    • This is also averted with Gru's Minions and Megamind's sidekick Minion, as the Minions all have individual names.
  • Outranking Your Job: Mirage is assigned by Dicker to rendezvous with General Monger at Area 51 to pick up the monsters. Lucy is quick to complain, pointing out that doing so is something you would assign to an intern and not the much more experienced Mirage and that they are just giving her a hard time because of her criminal past. Dicker claims that it is merely due to a lack of staff on standby.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Brought up when Honey Lemon learns that Susan's Ginormica, as she asks how she didn't recognise Susan when Ginormica doesn't wear a mask, Susan observing that it's surprisingly easy to blend in when people expect you to be ten times taller.
  • Play-Along Prisoner: Yama lets himself get arrested so that he can get close to Callaghan, and then reveals that he has a false tooth containing the PX formula, which he uses to strengthen himself and break them out.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Much of the conflict between Megamind and Mr. Incredible is because no one bothered to tell his teammates that he didn't kill Metro Man and that Metro Man's death was actually faked. The only reason Megamind himself didn't say anything earlier is because he assumed that the hatred that Bob in particular felt was just "a general lingering resentment" from his supervillain days, something that they could work out over time.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Deconstructed. As pointed out by Bob, Megamind was never really all that evil. He was confident in his schemes because he knew they were going to fail thanks to Metro Man — he was in it more for the societal obligation and the thrill of it all than any real ill will. However, because he wasn't all that evil, Metro Man forgot that most villains weren't like him and actually were dangerous to the public, which is why he was selfish enough to fake his death to become a singer.
  • Reality Ensues: Now has its own page.
  • Robot Girl: Phantasma is an AI with a body made out of microbots, created by Enigma. She looks human due to image inducers.
  • Seen It All: When taking the hidden elevator down into Gru's lab, Tip notes that it says something about her life that she's unfazed by the weirdness of the situation.
  • Shapeshifter Baggage: Susan has the same mass when shrunken down, due to the way the Sizeshifter device she uses works (contracting the empty space in her molecules).
  • She's Got Legs: Honey does, and Susan appreciates.
  • Ship Tease: Between Susan and Honey.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Sizeshifter:
    • Thanks to an invention of Doctor Cockroach's, Susan/Ginormica can now switch between her normal human size and her superpowered huge size.
    • After Megamind has the idea for Doctor Cockroach to use it to sneak up on Bob during the training spar, the Doctor apparently made a second one for himself, which he can use to shrink down to the size of a regular cockroach.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": Dash Parr's choice of superhero codename is "the Dash". Everyone calls him out on what a poor choice this is. When he complains that they didn't give Violet any grief about her "Ultraviolet" name, the retort is that her name is actually clever.
  • Square-Cube Law: Susan's Sizeshifter device contracts the empty space of her molecules, so she's a lot denser when in her five-foot form, and while this makes her Immune to Bullets, and just as strong as she is normally, she can't use furniture that isn't reinforced.
  • Start of Darkness: Mirage explains hers in Chapter 5 — her parents died when she was a child in collateral damage during a fight between Fred's father and Dr. Nefario, specifically due to her father's refusal for them to do anything to save themselves because he was sure Excelsior would save them. Mirage grew increasingly bitter over this as she grew up and eventually joined Syndrome because she wanted to convince people to give up their reliance on Supers.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: Enigma pulls this on Gru and Lucy during their meeting in the Bank of Evil. Gru questions if he was just standing in the shadows the whole time waiting to make a dramatic entrance.
  • String Theory: Fred still has his board about Gru from Empathy.
  • Superhero Paradox: Mirage developed her hatred of supers in part because Nefario chose to seek out Excelsior to fight, which was what led to the pier collapse that killed her parents.
  • Superman Stays Out of Gotham: The reason why the AVL has been keeping itself out of Metro City is because Megamind was not considered a big enough threat to warrant their concern, his villain career consisting of robbery and property damage while not actually being a danger to the public (fully aware that Metro Man was alive and well).
  • Super Strength: Susan is as strong shrunken as she is big because of the Sizeshifter device that she uses not changing her overall mass.
  • There Are No Therapists:
    • Averted. Riley is apparently still seeing her psychiatrist, and after her Mind Rape experience, comments that she's probably going to need to go back again.
    • Margo has apparently outright avoided going to a therapist, due to a fear of being seen as crazy. Riley telling her about her own experiences with therapy seem to have changed her mind.
  • This Is Gonna Suck:
    • Dicker when acceding to Megamind's request to take Bob to meet Metro Man. Megamind himself knew it wasn't going to go well either, but also pointed out that it was the only way he and Bob were going to bury the hatchet.
    • Megamind had this reaction again when they finally did meet up with Metro Man, after Bob's disbelief gave way to cold anger.
  • Time Skip: For the Parr family, it's been four years since they fought Syndrome, so Jack Jack's a toddler, Dash's a teenager, and Violet's a college student.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Mirage's mother wanted to get the heck out of dodge after a blast from the Exelscior/Dr. Nefario fight hit the pier that they were on, but she and her husband died because he believed that Excelsior would save them and insisted on staying put.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Megamind keeps the Defuser Gun in a locked case as a constant reminder of "the cost of my arrogance".
  • Troll: Yama jokingly telling Krei that he and his goons are looking for items from various science fiction series when the CEO asks why they're there.
  • Troubled Fetal Position: Riley curls up into one at the AVL base after Mezzmerella's Mind Rape.
    • After Margo punches Megamind in anger due to her parents being victims of Titan's rampage and runs off, Riley finds her in this position in Dr. Nerfario's lab.
  • Villain Team-Up: Apparently happened a few times between Megamind and Gru back in the day.
  • Volcano Lair: The Syndicate's base of operations.
  • Wake Up, Go to School, Save the World: As per the source material, this is in full effect for Big Hero 9. It also applies to Violet since she's a college student who fights crime as Ultraviolet.
  • What the Hell, Hero?:
    • Honey snaps at Hiro after his experiment with giving Baymax emotions goes wrong. In turn, the rest of the group gives her a mild chewing out for overreacting.
    • The other members of the group aren't happy with Fred for letting their identities slip to Violet, even if she's a super herself.
    • Bob is pissed to learn that Metro Man faked his death to quit being a hero and become a musician instead. He might've been able to forgive it, had Wayne not stood on the sidelines while Titan was terrorizing Metro City, forcing Megamind to defeat the villain in his place. As Bob puts it, while Megamind was the one who created Titan (and came to regret it), he only did it because he was trying to find someone to replace Metro Man; then, when Titan started his rampage, Megamind had to be the one to defeat him, even though Metro City was under Wayne's protection and thus it should've been him that dealt with Titan instead, especially since he was more powerful and better equipped to deal with Titan than Megamind was, and thus, theoretically, could've mitigated more of the damage. His speech is also a lot more effective than Roxanne's was in the movie, most likely because, unlike Roxanne, Bob and Wayne are both supers and used to be close friends.
  • Workaholic:
    • Honey Lemon has been throwing herself into her experiments and her job at the Lucky Cat Cafe a lot as a coping mechanism for Tadashi's death to the point that her friends are getting worried about her, even secretly taking some of the backup equipment Hiro made to chemically treat it to better withstand conditions that they might encounter without telling him.
    • When she meets Honey, Susan admits that she's become a bit of one herself, even name dropping the trope itself.
  • Worthy Opponent: Enigma views Hiro as one, even offering to let him join the Syndicate.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Underminer has no problem trying to strangle Tip.
  • X Called; They Want Their Y Back: Link has this to say upon meeting Balthazar Bratt:
    "The eighties called, they want their... jeez, everything back."
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Bob of all people gives this speech to Megamind when the latter admits he feels guilty for all the deaths Titan caused, pointing out that all he did was give Titan his powers — it was Titan himself who chose to do all those things.
