  • Cliché Storm: The most common criticism toward the show.
  • Crack Pairing: Joey-Heroman fanart has become rather popular, especially after episode nine, and helped not at all by how confusing Joey can be and that his mom and dad look just like him and Heroman, respectively.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Heroman's utter, total defeat of Dr. Minami. And the fact that he saves him makes it all the more win.
    • Also, Joey's arrival to the Washington D.C. battlefield, which involves jumping out of a damaged transport plane over the war-torn city into a wall of anti-aircraft plasma blasts, before surfing on the back of his Humongous Mecha partner into the Horde of Alien Locusts below. Kid knows how to make an entrance.
    • The villains aren't devoid of their own either, as Kogorr demonstrates in episode 25. You don't normally expect someone who's gone One-Winged Angel to fight smart at all, let alone fake a weak point just to draw the hero into impalement range. Better yet, the ruse works.
    • Finally, there's the conclusion of the heroes' battle with the Big Bad. First, Joey summons a massive shield that deflects every bit of Beam Spam Kogorr can throw at them, and then Heroman unleashes a Wave Motion Gun that smears him across the upper atmosphere. Moments later, the aftershock morphs into the series logo.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Denton trying to activate Heroman.
    • "This is nonsense. This is complete nonsense!"
      • The PRESIDENT going "Heck, yeah!" after Minami is beaten by Heroman. And then trying to act cool again.
      • Joey's response to seeing a giant Skrugg in Washington, D.C.? "Nothing surprises me anymore."
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The opening and ending, as well as the BGM for when Minami first appears.
    • Heck, the Giant Spheres have their own awesome theme music. That's probably why they're unstoppable.
    • Let's not forget the music that plays during the trailer for Heroman, which is reused during the final battle with Kogorr and after Heroman defeats Minami.
    • The second opening, it's just good.
  • Ear Worm: Dr. Minami's theme, hear in episode 15 at the start of his Boss Fight.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Ms. Collins, the hot red haired homeroom teacher, was featured in way more fanart than the few seconds of showtime in the first eleven episodes would indicate. She has become part of the comedic plot in episode 12, and was involved in Episodes 18 and 19, mostly concerning Fan Service.
  • Fridge Brilliance: Why is Kogorr so Dangerously Genre Savvy? He has experience, he's consumed planets before, a likely Trial And Error process.
  • Growing the Beard: A lot of people who watched the show were "Meh" during the first arc, but by the time the second arc finished, people were saying "HOLY SHIT!".
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Will, the resident Expy of Flash Thompson, ended up becoming an Expy of Venom, in recent Spider-Man comics, Flash Thompson is now Venom.
  • HSQ: Hits the fan in this video. Warning-spoilers.
  • I Knew It!: Viewers correctly guessed that Will was the one in the overcoat and hat.
  • Memetic Mutation: One day after the first episode aired and Stan Lee asking Joey for his coffee has achieved this status.
    • Shopping Joey's head on some things is also a meme.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Minami's expressions in episode 16 can be rather frightening.
    • The vines saying "Save...me..." is pretty freaky.
      • And the vines in general weren't?
    • See Body Horror above.
    • Kogorr's goal to destroy the planet by consuming it's nucleus, even creepier is that the camera pans to show the other worlds he consumed.

  Kogorr: Pitiful bugs! This planet's energy will become my sustenance! I shall once again take to the skies! You and this planet should all be destroyed!

  • Nightmare Retardant: Some of Minami's other expressions, meanwhile, are... less than scary. Probably intentional.
  • Tear Jerker: Episode 22, everything about the death of Joey's dad.
    • Putting in spoiler tags for anyone who wants to find out themselves, but he died ON CHRISTMAS EVE! WHY, STAN, WHY?!
  • Ugly Cute: The MR-1. Just look at that mouth and try not to smile.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: Despite material clearly stating that Joey is male, Joey's appearance in both the anime and manga, and his voice, and his Genki Girl heroine attitude, and pretty much everything about him, have convinced many a viewer that he's a reverse trap.
  • Villain Decay: Inverted, while both antagonists started out beaten fairly easily, both come back even stronger, Minami actually used the combat data gathered from his battle with Heroman, and used it to his advantage, Kogorr is an Eldritch Abomination that has eaten many planets before, and keeps the Dangerously Genre Savvy behavior that made him such a huge threat in the first place.
