  • The Assimilator: Nega-Globby can break down matter to increase its mass. It also absorbs an eye from the tentacle-eye creature in Liv's lab so it can see. Even having that fate inflicted upon it by Globby doesn't stop it, as it continues to exist within Globby.

  • Painful Transformation: Lampshaded by Globby when he regains his powers, as he had forgotten how much it hurt the first time.

  • Shapeshifting Excludes Clothing: When Globby gets turned back into Dibs, he finds himself naked and asks for a pair of pants.
  • Shipper on Deck: A mild version; Honey Lemon's conversation with Karmi about Hiro makes it clear that she's all for them being friends. Karmi, having just ended an argument with him, isn't having any of it.
  • Somebody Else's Problem: When Nega-Globby escapes containment, Liv cancels the alert and writes it off as a failed experiment, leaving the city to deal with the mess.

  • Talking the Monster to Death: Believing that Nega-Globby was Dibs, Honey Lemon attempts to get it to stop its rampage. Nega-Globby actually seemed to start calming down, before Dibs showed up and provoked it.
  • They Call Me Mister Tibbs: Globby uses the "Mr. Globby is my father" variant - then adds "or he would be, if he also went through a freaky mutation".
