This page contains unmarked spoilers. You Have Been Warned.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Incredibles is Pixar's sixth feature film, released in 2004, an affectionately parodic Decon-Recon Switch of the Superhero genre, happily lampshading on many conventions. Its plot bears a resemblance to Watchmen, although the tone is nowhere near as dark. That said, it's easily in the running for the darkest film Disney's ever been involved with—surpassed in number of onscreen deaths only by Pirates of the Caribbean—with tons of Black Comedy besides. It marks two firsts for the studio: their first with humans as the main characters and their first to be helmed by an out-of-studio filmmaker.Following a court ruling finding the Superstrong Mr. Incredible culpable for damages and the resulting series of lawsuits, the Super Relocation Act was enacted and all superheroes have been forced into retirement. Mr. Incredible and the stretching Elastigirl are now just Bob and Helen Parr. They have a quiet life in the suburbs with an ordinary house, a normal job and 3 children: disruptive and superfast Dash, shy Violet (who can turn invisible and project force fields), and baby Jack-Jack, who seems to have no powers. In other words, they are a very rough equivalent of the Fantastic Four. They're not really happy with the situation, but they don't have a choice.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })When Bob gets an offer from a mysterious woman named Mirage to relive his Glory Days and help out a high-tech facility gone wrong, he Jumps at the Call without telling his family. Soon, though, he gets in trouble, and finds he needs all the help his family can offer to help him save the day from a Diabolical Mastermind with an Evil Plan and a Killer Robot.Like other Pixar movies, there was a comic book series being published by Boom! Studios written by Mark Waid that has the continued adventures of the family. With the Superhero ban lifted, the Incredibles have to deal with a lot of old villains crawling out of the woodwork, and after taking out a decaying villain team, a new one rises out of the ashes, gathering power and planning on turning the citizens of Metroville against the supers using hypnosis and mecha, led by Xerek, the villain of early scripts for the film. The ending to this ongoing villain conspiracy arc, however, has been delayed from various internal problems at Boom. Despite Marvel picking up the Pixar license, nothing has materialized, with a reprint attempt of the series being cancelled a few story arcs in. The second movie rendered the comics Canon Discontinuity, making any continuation even more unlikely.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })A sequel, Incredibles 2, was released in 2018, with Brad Bird once again in the role as writer/director.The Incredibles played in theaters along with the Pixar short Boundin'. The DVD spinoff shorts Jack-Jack Attack and Mr. Incredible and Pals have their own pages.

comment
Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: Violet and Dash argue with each other almost all the time throughout the film, but when it comes down to it, they do love, and are very protective of each other. Dash pulls Violet to safety from a rocket's exhaust wash that utterly fills the cave they were in and would have roasted them to death, and later violently punches one of Syndrome's mooks for trying to attack her. Violet leaps in front of bullets to save Dash and this was before she was confident that she could generate her force fields on demand. She also protects Dash - as best she can - when the Omnidroid 10 almost flattens him.

Impossible Insurance: To his manager's dismay, Bob allows his clients to use loopholes so they get their insurance claims. Since Insuricare uses red tape to deny its clients from getting their monies, this is a breach of contract, which could subject the company to lawsuits and regulatory sanctions.

Annoying Younger Sibling: Initially, Dash and Violet fight like antagonistic siblings resorting to using their superpowers to up the ante. Dash runs around the kitchen table at high speed slapping his sister on each pass. Violet retaliates by creating a force bubble that he runs smack into. After their adventure, this changes.

Human Shield: Helen stretches herself over Violet and Dash to protect them when her plane explodes. At the end of the movie Syndrome's plane comes crashing down on The Incredibles. Although Violet was able to put up a force field in the nick of time, when the smoke clears, you can see that Bob has thrown himself around his entire family, cradling them and fully expecting to take the brunt of the impact.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 The Incredibles / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: Bob's encounter with Huph in his office mirrors the traditional superhero vs supervillain confrontation. Huph uses his power to demean and bully and has Bob trapped and at his mercy. Bob even has a subtle moment of realization that Huph's "enormous clock" speech is no different from the monologuing he received from super-villains while captured and could do nothing but listen helplessly. He ends the conflict in a traditional superhero manner by throwing Huph through several walls. Unfortunately, being a non-powered human, the results are quite damaging to Huph and disastrous to Bob's career. Helen's discovery that her husband has been doing hero work behind her back and the evidence in-hindsight is like a woman discovering that her husband has been cheating on her as a part of his midlife crisis. It doesn't help that when Helen finds Bob on Syndrome's island he's hugging Mirage. Justified in that an earlier draft, presented Helen's fears of being cheated on much more explicitly. The final draft toned it down to it being implied but not directly addressed. Elastigirl's Would Hurt a Child speech in the cave on Nomanisan could easily pass off as a parent giving their children The Talk.

Tempting Fate: "Hey, we're superheroes. What could happen?" Twice this is said, and twice they found out: The first time is when Bob said this after marrying Helen. Immediately afterwards, we're told that the suicidal man Bob saved has sued him, leading to the Super Relocation Act. The second time is near the final act of the movie; Helen reassures Bob that his family will be there to help him, saying the line. Cue Violet screaming as the Omnidroid is coming and about to squish her and Dash. "Don't worry Mrs. Parr. I can handle anything this baby dishes out." "This is not the end of it! I will get your son eventually! I'll get your son!" Seconds later, Bob makes sure it's the end of it and Syndrome is introduced to the business end of a jet turbine. "Everything is all right." Said by Helen as she floats down like a parachute with Jack-Jack in hand. Almost as soon as she lands, the wreckage of Syndrome's damaged aircraft drops on the family and explodes. The family survives thanks to Violet, but their house doesn't.

Never Trust a Trailer: Like other trailers for Pixar films, the trailer is basically a sketch that doesn't appear in the film, but the trailer is also deliberately misleading in that it changes all the memorabilia in Bob's office to indicate that he has always worn the red Mr. Incredible suit, as opposed to the blue one. The theatrical trailer also shows the superheroes from E's "no capes!" montage...and cuts away right before they all die.

The Cameo: A particularly awesome one for anyone who is into animation history. The two old men who praise the heroes after the climax ("That's the way to do it" - "No school like the old school") are Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston who were the last two surviving members of Disney's Nine Old Men. They were legendary animators who started on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and were involved in nearly every animated Disney project up to The Fox and the Hound. (Sadly, Thomas didn't live to see The Incredibles finished, and Johnston died in 2008.)

Poor Communication Kills
 The Incredibles / int_1c445e86
comment
Poor Communication Kills: The main reason project Kronos worked is because the various Supers stopped keeping tabs on each other and the NSA was not particularly diligent in keeping track of the underground Supers over the past 15 years. During the scene where Bob is reviewing the list of Supers terminated during project Kronos, upwards of twenty heroes were listed. That means that twenty Supers disappeared over the course of ten iterations of Omnidroids without raising any alarms or concerns among the hero community or within the government organization chartered with monitoring them.

It Only Works Once: The Omnidroid is a learning robot, and combined with Syndrome's constant upgrades, it's able to defeat superhero after superhero, with anyone who defeats it getting killed by the next model. We even see Mr. Incredible attempting a "jump over the robot" avoidance maneuver twice and being completely thwarted on the second attempt.

Good Is Not Soft: As a deconstruction of the superhero genre, the movie repeatedly points out that "super-heroing" is a dangerous business and it's a lot harder than it sounds to take bad guys alive when they're actively trying to kill you. We are shown that The Incredibles are not against using deadly force directly or indirectly against the various mooks they encounter. This is particularly notable with Dash who actually has the highest kill count in the film simply due to the number of goons crashing their velocipods into the surroundings while chasing him.

Engineered Heroics
 The Incredibles / int_2200d9ec
comment
Syndrome invented a robot that was designed to learn how to deal with any threat, but assumed that because he had the remote control in his gauntlet, he would always have a clear advantage over the Omnidroid and be able to play out his Engineered Heroics scenario without concern. However, once he engaged the Omnidroid and it identified him as a threat, it followed its programming with ruthless efficiency and quickly analyzed that it could deal with Syndrome by shooting the remote control gauntlet off his arm. Since Syndrome had no real field experience being a superhero the encounter quickly turned into a Curb-Stomp Battle forcing him to flee for his life.

Chekhov's Gun: The "Kronos" carving in the cavern where Mr. Incredible discovers the skeletal remains of Gazerbeam. It's the password to Syndrome's computer, and the name of Syndrome's evil plan. The lava wall in Syndrome's base. Seen first after Mr. Incredible defeats the first Omnidroid, then seen again when he later infiltrates Syndrome's base. Behind the wall is Syndrome's computer, where Mr Incredible discovers Syndrome's plan. Bob's black car. To stop Syndrome escaping at the end, Mr. Incredible throws it at him. The Omnidroid's claws. Bob is able to stop the Omnidroid v8 by tricking it into puncturing itself with it's own claws. Reflecting back on this strategy, gives Bob the idea on how to stop the Omnidroid v10.

Ironic Echo: "I am your biggest fan" occurs twice in the film with vastly different meanings. Syndrome delivers one in a rather sadistic fashion. After what appears to be the demise of Bob's family at his hands no less, he states that Bob shouldn't have any trouble getting over it, as he recalls that he preferred to "work alone". The idea that people are special from the exchange between Helen and Dash is later mirrored by Syndrome. It is a variation of the trope because the wording is changed from "special" to "super" but there's still an ironic twist.

Lava is Boiling Kool-Aid
 The Incredibles / int_24c48358
comment
Lava is Boiling Kool-Aid: The wall of flowing lava in the dining room can be parted, opening a path to Syndrome's computer room. The lava flows smoothly through the metal grates that comprise the walkway, leaving no molten rock clinging to the path, and giving off no residual heat. When Mr Incredible fights the first Omnidroid in the volcano cave, he manages to toss the robot into a pool of lava and thinks he has won. Moments later, it effortlessly climbs out of the lava lake with magma dripping off of it. It emerges with orange-hot armor but cools in seconds.

comment
Captain Ersatz: The Parr family is inspired by the Fantastic Four and there are some broad stroke parallels: Mr. Incredible is the Thing, Elastigirl is stretchy like Mr. Fantastic (but lacks his genius intelligence), and Violet is the Invisible Woman. While Dash, as a speedster, lacks a direct superpower parallel, his blond hair, Hot-Blooded attitude, and mischievous behavior tends to match the Human Torch. The ending shows Jack-Jack has highly variable superpowers much like Franklin Richards, the child of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman. Even their costumes and name (Fantastic/Incredible) are similar. Syndrome has some similarities with Doctor Doom, a villain whose primary superpower is simply being so good at advanced technology that his super-suit is more powerful than the family combined. Syndrome also has Doctor Doom's "petty grudge blown WAY out of proportion" motivation for his enmity as well. Dash's powers are that of The Flash and even calls himself "The Dash" when he gets his suit. Frozone is Iceman from the X-Men comics as played by Samuel L. Jackson. They both primarily create ramps of ice to skate everywhere. The Underminer basically is the Mole Man, one of the first villains the Fantastic Four encountered. Gazerbeam is Cyclops from the X-Men in all but name. The DVD special features on the minor heroes in the movie even parodies Cyclops' infamously bland personality by having Gazerbeam be an incredibly dull person.

Door Slam of Rage: When Bob arrives home from work, he steps on a skateboard and almost falls, catching himself by gripping his car's door frame. His fingers make grooves in the metal, enough to prevent the driver's door from closing properly. When the door won't close, Bob resorts to slamming it shut, which shatters the window glass. Furious beyond reason, Bob then hoists the car overhead, intending to smash it to pieces... until a neighbor's kid stares at Bob in awe. Bob puts down the car, and ambles casually into his house.

The argument between Lucius and Honey as the former tries to find his supersuit, with the chaos the Omnidroid is inflicting in the background. After Helen has caught Jack-Jack and is safely parachuting him to the ground she's looking at him while speaking soothing words like "Mommy's got you. Everything is all right." Meanwhile behind her Syndrome's plane is blowing up spectacularly with multiple explosions and parts flying everywhere. During Bob and Helen's phone conversation in the beginning, Jack-Jack is eagerly attempting to squirt soap into his mouth before Helen casually puts a hand over the bottle.

No Flow in CGI
 The Incredibles / int_27b2bccc
comment
No Flow in CGI: With one exception particular to this film: Violet's long hair required Pixar's engineers to write advanced custom software to get it right, and was one of the first challenges they tackled when making the film, since they knew they would need as much time as they could get to cope with unforeseen problems. The commentary discusses a scene where Edna reaches her hand through Incredible's old super suit and out the hole in the sleeve. It was not an easy task for the animators. The creators also expressed their exasperation in the commentary for the scene where Elastigirl and the kids fall into the ocean. Not only does it involve water and the aforementioned Violet's long hair, combining those two creates long, underwater hair, which behaves rather differently from dry hair.

Nominal Hero: Gamma Jack (the hero who destroyed Omnidroid 5), according to the NSA audio files. He prioritizes who he rescues according to their attractiveness (good looking women get immediate attention), he doesn't care about how much collateral damage he inflicts, and is willing to use lethal force against a villain (although the attractive female ones cause him a little regret). This cavalier attitude along with being prone to tyrannical / megalomaniacal impulses and his belief that Supers are a superior race, led to the NSA recommending close A-Level monitoring.

The sequence ends with this quote- "The Incredibles- no sequence unexploded."

Hollywood Law: Zig-zagged. Generally "Good Samaritan" laws would protect individuals from prosecution or lawsuits for damages or injuries that occur when responding to a crime or disaster. However, the movie does state that the lawsuit made it to "Superior Court" implying a possible reevaluation of those laws with regards to superpowered individuals because of the higher level of destruction they can cause. However, the "ruined suicide" lawsuit should have been dismissed at the outset because suicide is illegal.

Not the Fall That Kills You
 The Incredibles / int_38119dcf
comment
Not the Fall That Kills You: Played With. At the beginning, Mr. Incredible stops Sansweet by intercepting him mid-fall and sending them both crashing through a window. Although Sansweet survives, he reveals himself to be in great pain and that something had probably broken. Later Sansweet is revealed to be in a full neck-brace and he sues Mr. Incredible for it. At the end of the movie when catching a falling Jack-Jack, Elastigirl stretches her arms out to slow down his velocity and gently pull him toward her, before turning into a parachute.

Affair Hair: Played with. The first time we have the classic setup with Bob sneaking back into the house and Helen noticing something on his sweater. She reaches out to pluck it off... except it's building debris and she correctly deduces Bob's moonlight activities. The second time, it's played straight as Helen spots a blond hair on the suit Bob wore while dining with Mirage.

Batman Gambit: When Bomb Voyage sticks a bomb to Buddy's cape as he leaves the crime scene, knowing that Mr Incredible would rather save an innocent child than capture a criminal. Actually worked better than expected, because not only did it draw Mr Incredible away, but the ensuing chaos made an even bigger diversion that let Bomb Voyage escape scot free. When Syndrome calls Mr. Incredible's bluff when he threatens to kill Mirage after taking her hostage, knowing that he wouldn't have the guts to go through with it. It later comes back to bite him in the ass for his jerkass attitude in the situation.

Psychopathic Manchild: Although dangerous and murderous, Syndrome is a very childish man; he's immature, excitable, petulant, irresponsible, prone to mood swings, obsessed with gadgets and 'toys', and spiteful. His entire motivation stems from an admittedly wounding and hurtful but still relatively minor slight he suffered when he was a child.

However, he quickly realizes he is mangling the Aesop with him saying things like "stay in school, or you'll end up like me", since he is famous and well-beloved and has superpowers. He does not quite know how to proceed once he figures out that this is not sending the correct message.

Stupidity Is the Only Option
 The Incredibles / int_40680cf6
comment
Stupidity Is the Only Option: When the Super Relocation Act came into being, the implication is that the government was overseeing the "hiding" of all the heroes. This anonymity evidently resulted in the heroes being more or less isolated from each other such that when Syndrome started killing them off, they were unaware of what was happening. In addition the government agency monitoring the relocated heroes apparently was oblivious to the pattern of many heroes mysteriously vanishing.

There's also a commentary track where Mr. Incredible and Frozone watch it for the first time, 15 years after it was made. Hilarity Ensues.

comment
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: When told the Omnidroid he's about to face has artificial intelligence that enables it to solve any problem, Mr. Incredible jumps to the conclusion that "it got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders". Subverted, since Mr. Incredible is being set-up and the Omnidroid is actually under control the entire time. Mr. Incredible's statement "it got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders" seems to be played straight when Syndrome engages the Omnidroid 10 in "battle". But it's actually Subverted because once the Omnidroid identifies Syndrome as a threat, it actually followed its programming with ruthless efficiency and quickly determined that it was vulnerable to the remote control and shot it off Syndrome's arm. Since he had no real field experience being a superhero the encounter quickly turned into a Curb-Stomp Battle forcing him to flee for his life. However, the Omnidroid's internal analysis makes it clear that it was following its programming not overthrowing it.

Would Hurt a Child
 The Incredibles / int_479d4e5a
comment
Would Hurt a Child: Discussed by Helen Parr, who makes it very clear to Dash and Violet that the situation they are in has very serious consequences. We see this verified later when Syndrome's mooks start shooting at Dash and Violet as soon as they realize the kids are supers. Syndrome has no qualms about shooting a plane out of the sky when he believes that Mr. Incredible sent for reinforcements even when the plane broadcasts that there are children aboard. Mirage, on the other hand, immediately shows alarm at this announcement, which becomes another factor that eventually prompts her High-Heel–Face Turn. At the beginning of the movie, Bomb Voyage sticks a bomb onto Buddy's costume as he's flying off to force Mr. Incredible to focus on saving the kid instead of stopping him. The villain obviously had no concerns about putting Buddy's life in danger for a chance to escape. In the commentary, Brad Bird explicitly expresses that he wanted this trope to be in full effect due to the pressure by the Media Watchdogs of having kids wrapped in Plot Armor, saying that he felt that such an attitude is more damaging to kids than helpful.

Big "WHAT?!": Dash lets out one in the cave when Helen says Violet is in charge while she goes to look for Bob. Helen does one after Mirage says Violet and Dash triggered an intruder alert and Syndrome's guards are after them.

Advertised Extra: Downplayed. While most of the promotional materials feature Jack-Jack in his super-suit and imply that he's with the family on their superhero adventures, he's only featured in the scenes dealing with the Parr's home life. He's left at home during the island adventure and he doesn't appear in his super-suit until the last fifteen seconds of the film.

Power Perversion Potential: Explicitly shown in one scene, where Helen uses her elastic arms to pinch her husband's butt from across the room. In addition, a rubbery woman is the least likely for Bob to accidentally crush with his strength during moments of passion. One of the newspaper headlines during the anti-super montage implies that a hero with X-Ray vision might have been using his power to be a "peeping tom".

Early Installment Weirdness: The teaser has posters of Mr. Incredible wearing his red suit. In the movie itself, he doesn't wear the red suit until after the Time Skip, with the posters instead having him wear his older blue suit. Mr. Incredible has an Incrediphone, which is nowhere to be seen in the movie itself. It's implied that Supers weren't banned in this version due to a newspaper headline stating that Mr. Incredible originally retired, and the fact that someone is trying to call him for help in the first place.

Disproportionate Retribution: Syndrome was just a geeky kid who simply wanted to be a super-sidekick using his gadgetry. After he's roughly dismissed by his hero, Mr. Incredible, he goes to the dark side and spends his life designing technology so he can kill superheroes, take their place, and then eventually sell his inventions so that everyone can be super, depriving everyone of their uniqueness. He takes special glee in his attempt to abduct Mr. Incredible's son Jack-Jack.

Not What It Looks Like: Bob and Lucius rescue people from a burning building and rush into the next building, only to find they're now in a jewellery store and accidentally set the alarms off. To make matters worse, they are wearing ski masks, the police are outside and the people they rescued now look like hostages. Lampshaded by Lucius just before the cop bursts in: "We look like bad guys! Incompetent bad guys!" Mirage tells Bob his family survived Syndrome's missiles, and Bob is so grateful for the news that he gives Mirage a great big hug — and right at that moment, Helen, who fears Bob was having an affair, walks in to rescue him.

Super Speed: This is Dash's core power. He is shown to be fast enough to pull a prank on camera and barely register a blur. Later when evading Syndrome's mooks he is shown being fast enough to run on water. note  Unfortunately that's not really very fast. Scientists have calculated that a human would only have to be able to run 30 meters/second to run across water, which is a somewhat disappointing 67 mph.

In stark contrast with Bob's prior career as a superhero, the environment is as bland and drab as possible, and the tyrannical boss Mr. Huph gets mad when Bob actually helps the customers. As added insult, Bob barely fits into his own cubicle because he has to share it with a concrete support beam.

Late-Arrival Spoiler: You know the plot twist at the end of the movie? When Syndrome kidnaps Jack-Jack? Yeah, it overlaps with the "Jack-Jack Attack" short, and it seems everyone is perfectly willing to discuss it openly. Several people called the Kari phone calls and subsequent Jack-Jack and Syndrome scene a bonus materials deleted scene for the DVD on first viewing of the film. Lo and behold ...

Creative Closing Credits: The various action vignettes surrounding the closing credits are related to the role of the person following each. The title of the Story Supervisor is kept constantly spinning, then is chopped up and reassembled to form the name of the film editor. The name of the Shading Supervisor has a shimmery shadow on the ground.

When the supers are forced into retirement, the existing super villains seem to disappear as well. A Downplayed example because while it's never explained what happened to the villains or why their criminal activity would stop just because the supers went away, reading some of the newspapers shown in the film reveal that crime rates have risen significantly after the Super Relocation Act was passed.

The Parr family is inspired by the Fantastic Four and there are some broad stroke parallels: Mr. Incredible is the Thing, Elastigirl is stretchy like Mr. Fantastic (but lacks his genius intelligence), and Violet is the Invisible Woman. While Dash, as a speedster, lacks a direct superpower parallel, his blond hair, Hot-Blooded attitude, and mischievous behavior tends to match the Human Torch. The ending shows Jack-Jack has highly variable superpowers much like Franklin Richards, the child of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman. Even their costumes and name (Fantastic/Incredible) are similar.

comment
Meaningful Name: The Parr family. "Par" means average or adequate, contrasting with "Incredible." Violet can be taken to refer to ultraviolet light (which is beyond normal human visual acuity and is therefore invisible). Also, a "Shrinking Violet" refers to someone who is very shy or timid, which Violet tends to be until she Takes A Level In Badass. Dash, dashes about. Jack-Jack can be read as a reference to a jack of all trades, which he certainly appears to be. Syndrome is Buddy "Pine", as in "I cry because I can't be your friend." In addition, he has the same initials as Mr. Incredible: Bob Parr and Buddy Pine. He also has a bad case of hero's syndrome. Edna Mode: 'Mode' means 'fashion' in several languages. Mirage is not what she appears to be at first glance. Nomanisan Island (No man is an island), which ties into the film's themes of teamwork and family. Attempted in the Spanish translation, where the island is known as Isla Palos Locos ("Crazy Sticks Island", but can also be read as Isla Pa'los Locos, "Island For The Crazy"). Thunderhead was apparently The Ditz. His superhero name is a play on "dunderhead|", a generic term for someone stupid. Frozone's name is Lucius Best and he's Bob's best friend and was Best Man at his wedding to Helen.

Wronski Feint: Played straight when Helen's plane is targeted by the first two missiles launched by Syndrome. After her initial evasions fail, she dives toward the ocean spiraling her plane while launching flares to try and break the missile lock. She succeeds in getting the two missiles to detonate in the ocean but she also damages her plane in the maneuver leaving her with virtually no fuel when the second salvo of missiles arrive. Downplayed when Dash is being pursued on the island by mooks in their velocipods. Although Dash is not intentionally invoking this strategy, he is quick enough to dodge around the trees; the mooks who follow and are trying to anticipate his moves, are not.

Token Minority: According to the NSA files on the DVD release of the movie, Frozone is the only registered non-white superhero in the entire United States. Apparently Frozone being a person of color wasn't highly promoted as demonstrated in the other DVD feature "Mr. Incredible and Pals" which featured the cartoon adventures of Mr. Incredible, Frozone and their animal sidekick Mr. Skipperdoo. The feature provides commentary whereupon Frozone draws specific attention to the fact that his cartoon self comes across as a white person with a tan.

Monster Protection Racket: Syndrome's plan: After the development and testing of the Omnidroid prototypes has killed off most of the real superheroes, he then unleashes the ultimate version upon the city so he can use the attack to appear as the city's savior. Unfortunately, he made his machine a bit *too* clever...

Political Correctness Gone Mad: When Bob comes home after saving some civilians from a fire, Helen tells him that the next day is Dash's graduation from 4th grade to 5th, which Bob dismisses as dumb. When Helen calls him out on it, he insists: "It's psychotic! They keep creating new ways to celebrate mediocrity!"

Animated Outtakes
 The Incredibles / int_7725b0e6
comment
Animated Outtakes: It has a "bloopers" segment as a DVD extra. Some of the segments are this trope (like a bit where Elastigirl swings from the monorail car and smacks into a pylon), while others are legitimate animation errors (like a bit where the physics go wonky and make Violet's hair fly around wildly). None of these bits are fully rendered, and the deliberate jokes are little more than animatics. The segment comes across like a unpolished compilation the animators made to amuse themselves and was later included on the DVD as a fun extra for the audience.

For Want of a Nail
 The Incredibles / int_79a60aec
comment
For Want of a Nail: If Mr. Incredible allowed Buddy be his sidekick, the latter's Face–Heel Turn might have been avoided and countless other supers would still be alive because the Omnidroids wouldn't exist. If Mr. Incredible had not rescued Oliver Sansweet, not only would he not have been sued, but the railroad track would not have been blown up and his loss in the subsequent lawsuit would not have happened, and the entire Super Relocation Act would likely not have gone ahead. After Bob was cut by the Omnidroid during their first fight, he went to Edna and get his suit repaired. If Edna had just patched the suit instead of designing him a new costume, Helen wouldn't have noticed the old patched suit and gone to see Edna, which resulted in Helen activating the homing beacon and inadvertently getting Bob captured.

Ambiguous Time Period: According to the newspaper Bob is reading at dinner, the story takes place in 1962, but they have computers that function similarly to what was available by 2004. Even the one seen in Bob's office, despite its retro design, would be out of place for that time period. All of Syndrome's vehicles and equipment have a very "retro" aesthetic, but in terms of technological advancement, are far beyond what we have even in modern times. There's also VHS players, which didn't come out until late 70s. Brad Bird says that the time period is based more on what people in the '50s and '60s thought the future would be like.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Bob saves Oliver Sansweet as well as several train passengers, only for them to sue over their collective injuries, opening the floodgates to a bunch of lawsuits that drive superheroes out of business. Congratulations to Buddy also for starting the whole mess while trying to help his hero. Edna installs a homing device in Bob's suit without warning him of its existence. Helen then activates the homing device at the worst possible time, alerting Syndrome to his presence.

Where the Hell Is Springfield?
 The Incredibles / int_8504b817
comment
Where the Hell Is Springfield?: The film takes place in two cities. Municiberg where the "Glory Days" prologue occurs and Metroville which is where the Parrs have been living for the past three years. It's also the city attacked by the Omnidroid at the end of the film. Aside from both cities bordering a large body of water, there are virtually no regional identifiers to establish a geographic location. Justified in that each simply functions as a generic, post-war American city to provide a set dressing of civilians, cars, highways, shops and tall buildings but neither is featured long enough to require any type of unique identity or location.

What Happened to the Mouse?: When the supers are forced into retirement, the existing super villains seem to disappear as well. A Downplayed example because while it's never explained what happened to the villains or why their criminal activity would stop just because the supers went away, reading some of the newspapers shown in the film reveal that crime rates have risen significantly after the Super Relocation Act was passed. Mirage disappears from the story after helping the family escape from Syndrome's lair and is never referenced again. Subverted in the official comics, which show that the U.S. government hired her to work as a spy for them in exchange for not sending her to prison.

Do Wrong, Right: Dash gets sent to the principal's office for using his Super Speed to put a tack on the teacher's chair during class. His father is genuinely impressed, especially about how Dash went too fast to be picked up on video. At least as far as the others in the room were concerned, it was also an example of Comically Missing the Point — primarily because it's clear that Bob's just living vicariously through his son's use of his powers.

 The Incredibles / int_8b221a63
comment
Reed Richards Is Useless: Mostly averted. Even though it takes place in what appears to be the 1960's, there are several examples of anachronistic technology, such as a TV/VCR combo in the principal's office, which could be construed as the general tech level being raised by the presence of super-tech in the setting. Also, there are non-supers with access to gear we don't have today, such as the Gadgeteer Genius characters Edna Mode and Syndrome.

Didn't Think This Through
 The Incredibles / int_8d0785d5
comment
Didn't Think This Through: The Public whose opinion forced the government to put the Super Relocation Act in place did not consider fully all the good the supers were also accomplishing. Fifteen years later, crime rates are at an all-time high according to newspaper Bob is reading when he leaves the family dinner. Doubles as a Freeze-Frame Bonus. Syndrome unleashed an Omnidroid on the city that was designed and tested to defeat superheroes. He didn't consider the implications when he called himself a "superhero" in front of it, causing the robot to identify Syndrome as a threat and respond accordingly. Once the Omnidroid shot off his remote control gauntlet, he lost the only advantage he had over the robot and lacking any real superhero battle experience, he had no choice but to flee in panic.

Too Qualified to Apply: Because of the Super Relocation Act, those with superpowers are legally required to hide them. Thus, Dash's parents don't let him compete in sports because they don't trust him to restrain his Super Speed enough to maintain their cover. By the end of the movie, however, Dash's superheroics leave him feeling accomplished enough to willfully restrain himself to taking second place.

Self-Serving Memory
 The Incredibles / int_8fdd68fc
comment
Self-Serving Memory: When Syndrome relives his memory of being turned away as a sidekick, he recalls that Mr. Incredible was alone, facing him, and totally focused on rejecting him. In the actual event, Mr. Incredible had already made it clear Buddy had gone too far with his fanboying and was busy dealing with Bomb Voyage when he tossed out the rejection over his shoulder. This makes Syndrome's Never My Fault mentality pretty clear.

Karmic Death: Being an intentional Deconstruction of the superhero genre, the movie uniquely averts having Syndrome die in a manner that is completely his own fault leaving the heroes blameless. Upon making his escape while threatening that he will eventually abduct Jack-Jack, Bob deliberately tosses his car into Syndrome's plane fully intending to do him harm and resulting in Syndrome's death by Turbine Blender.

In his fury, Bob throws Huph through a series of walls and lands him in hospital. It gets Bob fired (understandably), but still. Thanks to Syndrome's Kick the Dog moment, Mirage does a High-Heel–Face Turn in favor of the merciful Mr. Incredible.

Never My Fault: Syndrome's motivation falls kind of flat when you realize that even though Mr. Incredible told him he worked alone, Buddy had distracted him repeatedly, let Bomb Voyage escape, and had nearly gotten killed because he repeatedly tried to "help". This is not exactly an uncommon flaw in supervillains.

During the first release of the DVD, calling the phone number would have Mirage direct you to the movie's website but the number has rotated onward to other uses since then. Caveat Emptor when trying the number today.

Foreshadowing
 The Incredibles / int_9d12bbc1
comment
Foreshadowing: While initially appearing to be just an overzealous fan-boy, Buddy's behavior in the prologue raises several red flags of an emerging sociopath: When Mr. Incredible refuses to acknowledge him as "Incredi-boy" but instead recalls his real name, Buddy snaps that his name is "Incredi-boy" with considerable anger and vehemence. He walks right into Mr. Incredible's confrontation with Bomb Voyage with no regard for his safety or acknowledgement of how dangerous the situation is. He then wants Mr. Incredible's full attention on him, and doesn't seem to care that Bomb Voyage escaped as a result. He’s more fixated on the aspects of being a superhero that draw attention to himself (like style and catchphrases) rather than the empathetic character qualities that make a hero (like a desire for justice or wanting to save the innocent). He also assumes that Mr. Incredible rejects him solely for not having superpowers, showing he doesn't even realize how recklessly he's acting. Syndrome's death by Cape Snag is foreshadowed a couple times: Bomb Voyage manages to get a bomb stuck on Buddy's cape, which would have resulted in the boy's death had Mr. Incredible not forced it off before it exploded. Sure enough, the fact Syndrome apparently hasn't learned from this - since his supervillain outfit also has a cape - which leads to his death when it gets caught in a jet turbine. Edna rants on how a good number of superheroes died due to Cape Snag on various objects; in particular, Stratogale died due to her cape being sucked into a jet turbine, hinting at Syndrome's demise. Lucius' story about how he was able to take advantage of Baron von Ruthless' monologuing also hints at how Mr. Incredible finally takes Syndrome out. For bonus points, he even tries the exact same trick during their initial confrontation, but Syndrome is wise to it on that occasion. Syndrome, the first time he's Caught Monologuing, refers to the Omnidroid as "a weapon only I can defeat". As it turns out, defeating the Omnidroid (or at least, pretending to) is the climax of his entire plan. Helen finding building debris on Bob's jacket sets up how she will come to think later that he is cheating on her when she finds Mirage's hair on his jacket. Helen's supersuit being shown to be "virtually indestructible" even against missiles fired upon it. The newspaper article in the dinner scene about Simon J. Paladino (aka. Gazerbeam) having gone missing. When Bob fights his first Omnidroid he tricks it into skewering itself. This leads to Bob's "Eureka!" Moment when fighting the Omnidroid attacking the city: "The only thing hard enough to penetrate it is... itself" as he holds one of the Omnidroid's arms in his hand.

Heroism Addict: Syndrome's Evil Plan is a textbook example of hero syndrome, creating a threat that only he could stop so that he could reap the admiration of being a superhero (and make a profit in the long run). His villain name might even be an intentional nod towards this.

Hilarity Sues: One of the main causes for heroes hiding is the damage their battles caused to their surroundings. The immense destruction in the end battle is hardly mentioned because all of it was caused by the Omnidroid itself. The only damages that could be reasonably pinned on the heroes were the office building Mr. Incredible was thrown through, the car Frozone was chucked onto, and the manhole cover Elastigirl pulled up.

After The Incredibles as a family team have succeeded in taking down the giant Omnidroid that was threatening the city, they are basking in a job well done while being shuttled home in limo provided by Agent Dicker. The festive mood is shattered as Helen encounters Kari's voice messages growing in panic, but in her last message she returns to her normal chipper and friendly tone and says thanks for sending a replacement (who turns out to be Syndrome).

Hero Insurance: The implication is that the collateral damage caused by the Supers was more or less handled by the government. But when the "Superior Court" allowed a lawsuit targeting Mr. Incredible, it opened the floodgates of litigation and caused the government settlements to reach a boiling point. In response they shutdown super-heroics and forced the Supers into retirement.

No-Sell: A quick moment when Mr. Incredible throws a rock at the Omnidroid, and it doesn't do anything. It promptly begins chucking boulders at him. Another moment is when the army in the city attempts to use weapons at the Omnidroid having no effect. Frozone attempts to freeze parts of the Omnidroid in the climax to stop it. He first gets thrown onto a car, and then, when he freezes one of the Omnidroid's claws, it simply breaks the ice and carries on.

Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: After Mr. Incredible throws out his back in his first fight against Syndrome's Omnidroid, the robot's attempt to pull him apart ends up popping it back into alignment and a Curb-Stomp Battle ensues. A part of Syndrome's plan involves bringing Mr. Incredible out of retirement in order to kill him, ends up inspiring him to get back into shape making him a more formidable opponent for stopping Syndrome's later plan. Syndrome's plan of attacking the city with a giant Omnidroid ended up causing the immediate public to give praise and applause to "The Incredibles" and Frozone for saving them which is the exact opposite of what he wanted. The mook that punches Dash off his velocipod ends up saving Dash's life, because seconds later the velocipod crashes into a cliff.

 The Incredibles / int_ad1db87c
comment
Oh, Crap!: Mr. Incredible gets one in the bank early on when he hears the beeping sound speed up and realises the wall is about to blow up. He leaps away as the explosion occurs. Dash in the principal's office when his teacher reveals he was caught on camera. Despite this, he still gets away with it. Bob when he realises he and Lucius have escaped from the burning building into a jewellery store, right before accidentally setting the alarms off. Bob gives this reaction when he gives Helen the slip of doing some heroic action under the guise of bowling with Lucius. Also Bob's reaction just after he loses his temper and punches Huph through the wall— he realizes he's just blown his superhero cover and he's going to get fired. Also, Huph's reaction when Bob grabs him around the throat right before that happens. Bob has one a little after that when the secret message Mirage delivered him announces that it will self destruct in his trophy room. Bob has one later just before the second Omnidroid grabs him and tosses him around like a rag doll. Bob has yet another one when Helen activates his homing device at the worst possible time, causing him to be captured. Bob had another reaction later when a transmission of Helen requesting landing at Nomanisan plays and Syndrome orders missiles to be fired at the plane. Then again by Bob in the same scene, when Helen mentions that there are children on board the plane. Mirage shares this reaction. Then Helen has one when she realizes the missiles are going to hit the plane. Dash has one in the cave sequence when Syndrome launches his rocket and a jet of fire hurtles towards him. Dash and mook: Dash sees the velocipod he's on is going to hit a wall and lets himself get punched away from it... the mook realizes seconds later but is just not quick enough. The Mook in the trailer gets a good one right before Mr. Incredible goes to town on his whole squad. Violet when she sees the Omnidroid's claw about to come down on the van with her and Dash inside it. They manage to escape before the van is crushed. Mr. Incredible when, after he saves Violet and Dash from being crushed by the Omnidroid, he realises a claw is about to grab him out from underneath it. He then gets thrown through an office window. Mr. Incredible gets one when the Omnidroid notices him with Syndrome's remote and promptly stomps on him. Syndrome has one when he's about to be minced by the jet turbine.

comment
Be Careful What You Wish For: In the superhero interviews in the film's opening, Mr. Incredible claims he wants to settle down, but then yearns for the Glory Days when he's forced to do just that by the Super Relocation Act. In an inversion, Elastigirl gets the opposite of what she wishes for, but it turns out she actually prefers it. In her interview, she says she doesn't want to retire because she's at the top of her game, but she is the one who is most content in establishing a normal life after the Super Relocation Act. Syndrome wants the glory of being recognized as a superhero and creates an Engineered Heroics situation with the giant Omnidroid that will allow him to "save the day". However, he doesn't have any real superhero "field experience" and he didn't put any "don't harm your creator" safeguards into the Omnidroid's programming so it treats him as a legitimate superhero threat. Once his remote control device is neutralized, he faces the serious danger of being killed by his own invention.

comment
Plot-Sensitive Button: Syndrome's remote only has four buttons and while they all have some effect on the giant Omnidroid, their exact effect varies during the final battle. Sometimes it does nothing, other times it jettisons individual limbs, ignites jet thrusters, controls a specific detached claw, and so forth as needed by the plot.

It's All About Me
 The Incredibles / int_bb18a227
comment
It's All About Me: Bob wants Dash to make use of his Super Speed at school instead of suppressing it. Helen accuses Bob of feeling relevant of his son's potential. Syndrome's Evil Plan begins and ends with his ego and personal vengeance. In hindsight, this was probably his real motivation as a child, too; he wanted to be special and save the day. When Bob points out that he killed real heroes just so he could pretend to be one, Syndrome assumes he's talking about his lack of superpowers, not being a mass murderer for the sake of his own ego. It's also telling his plan to make everyone super so no one is once he's had his fun still involves selling them and making money.

Evil Gloating: Parodied, discussed, and lampshaded as the heroes mock the villainous habit of 'monologuing'. Syndrome even calls out Bob for having tricked him into a monologue that almost distracts him. This ultimately turns out to be Syndrome's undoing, however - after failing to steal Jack-Jack, he takes a moment to gloat about how "this isn't over" and how he will eventually get Mr. Incredible's son, giving Bob enough time to throw a car at him.

In a fit of exasperation, Bob lifts the car over his head only to realize that Rusty, the neighborhood kid, has been watching him. As the two stare at each other in silence, several pieces of glass tumble from the shattered window behind Bob, who then nonchalantly puts the car down and goes into the house.

Xanatos Gambit: A flawed example with Syndrome's Omnidroids. Each initial confrontation of a Super against the Omnidroid plays the trope straight. If the Super is killed by the Omnidroid, then Syndrome records the data and moves onto the next Super. If the Super wins, Syndrome revises the design, and calls the Super back for a rematch. However, the gambit requires that the Super is terminated during their second encounter with an Omnidroid otherwise the ongoing plan starts to fall apart because it would be very difficult to keep inviting the hero back without raising suspicion.

Irony: The opening interviews provide an ironic look into the past and present. In the interview, Mr. Incredible said he wouldn't mind settling down but in the present Bob is pining for the glory days of adventure. Elastigirl scoffed at the idea of domestic life but Helen ends up being content and happy raising a family. Frozone thought the idea of revealing your secret identity in a relationship was amusing, while Lucius is so honest with his wife she knows where to find his supersuit and hide it from him if she needs to.

Yank the Dog's Chain: Syndrome intentionally offers Bob another shot at the Golden Days by hiring him to fight an Omnidroid that had broken free from a research project. Upon successful completion of the mission, Bob is left with the impression there'd be more "moonlighting" projects in the future. When he returns home, this leads to a Good-Times Montage of Bob getting back into shape, being more involved with his kids and reigniting the passion with his wife. When invited to another assignment, Bob jumps at the chance only to discover it was all a sham. He was invited back only to be soundly defeated by a new Omnidroid and hunted down and "killed" by Syndrome.

I Just Want to Be Special: Ironically, even though his incredible intelligence and advanced technology demonstrates that he is already quite gifted, Syndrome's Fatal Flaw is that he wants the world to recognize his superheroics as being greater than Mr. Incredible.

Soul-Crushing Desk Job: Bob Parr used to be a superhero, until the Super Relocation Act reduced him to being an insurance adjuster in a soulless cube farm. Bob's only relief comes from helping claimants outwit the bureaucracy, which results in Bob's heartless boss roaring his name like an expletive.

Punch! Punch! Punch! Uh Oh...: Dash uses his speed to deliver a lot of blows to a Mook, with virtually no effect who then punches Dash off of his Velocipod with one blow. A Downplayed Example because the "uh oh" part didn't come from Dash realizing the mook was shrugging off his punches, but rather he saw the velocipod was heading straight toward at cliff.

Hoist by His Own Petard
 The Incredibles / int_d397657d
comment
Hoist by His Own Petard: Syndrome invented a robot that was designed to learn how to deal with any threat, but assumed that because he had the remote control in his gauntlet, he would always have a clear advantage over the Omnidroid and be able to play out his Engineered Heroics scenario without concern. However, once he engaged the Omnidroid and it identified him as a threat, it followed its programming with ruthless efficiency and quickly analyzed that it could deal with Syndrome by shooting the remote control gauntlet off his arm. Since Syndrome had no real field experience being a superhero the encounter quickly turned into a Curb-Stomp Battle forcing him to flee for his life. After Syndrome's Omnidroid plans fall apart he attempts revenge on Mr. Incredible by trying to abduct his son Jack-Jack. This triggers his latent powers allowing him to escape and leaving Syndrome barely able to reach his get-away plane. However, instead of immediately fleeing, Syndrome can't resist taunting Mr. Incredible that he will eventually get his son. This causes Mr. Incredible to throw his car into the plane, knocking Syndrome into the jet-turbine, and since his costume has a cape, the resulting Cape Snag that causes his death by Turbine Blender.

Writing Around Trademarks
 The Incredibles / int_d4c98786
comment
Writing Around Trademarks: As "superhero" is a shared trademark of Marvel Comics and DC Comics, Pixar got around this by primarily using the word "supers" in the script (although "superhero" did appear a few times as well). Amusingly, by the time of the sequel, Pixar and Marvel were now siblings, but while they could now legally use the term "superhero", "supers" fit with Brad Bird's quirky writing style better. Averted with the Omnidroid, which, at the time of the film's release, required special permission from Lucasfilm, as noted in the credits. Currently not an issue due to Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm.

By the time the film begins, it's implied that he has succeeded in eradicating every Super associated with the NSA except for Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone. However, he lacks the reputation of dread normally associated with this trope. In fact, his plan only succeeds because the supers are underground and don't communicate with each other anymore, which allows Syndrome to quietly pick them off one-by-one.

Indy Ploy: Helen is able to do this very well. It helps that besides being the mother that needs to balance, control, and maintain her family, she can adjust herself in various ways to accommodate her own plans. Bob is a straighter example of this. His own experiences as a hero aside, working with and being married to Helen probably contributed to his ability to think fast and adapt to situations quickly.

Expy: Edna is based on a real-life costume designer for Paramount, Edith Head. Compare Edna◊ and Edith◊. Many say she was based on Linda Hunt's character Regina Krumm in Altman's 1994 film Pret-a-Porter. There is a serious resemblance, down to her size, her hairstyle, her black dress and her circular glasses! If a place can be an expy, than the middle school that Violet attends is one for Corvallis High School in Corvallis, Oregon, where Brad Bird went to high school. This is down to them having the same mascot (the Spartans). However, since the high school building was torn down in 2005 and rebuilt, it's a little hard to see it now.

Restricted Rescue Operation: The plot is driven by the supers being forced underground and forbidden from using their powers to help people. Notably there's a scene in which Mr Incredible/Bob Parr's boss threatens to fire him if he leaves to help a man who's being robbed. In that scene he was already in trouble for teaching his customers to "penetrate the bureaucracy" of the insurance company he was working for.

Deadly Force Field: Violet is able to use her force fields offensively. She can project them so that others crash into them, like she does with Dash. She and Dash can also combine their powers to form the "Incredi-Ball", where Dash uses his Super Speed to run inside Violet's force field, which results in an unstoppable sphere hurtling along and bowling everything in its path out of the way.

Syndrome's Evil Plan begins and ends with his ego and personal vengeance. In hindsight, this was probably his real motivation as a child, too; he wanted to be special and save the day. When Bob points out that he killed real heroes just so he could pretend to be one, Syndrome assumes he's talking about his lack of superpowers, not being a mass murderer for the sake of his own ego. It's also telling his plan to make everyone super so no one is once he's had his fun still involves selling them and making money.

comment
Staring Kid: Rusty McAllister, the kid on a tricycle. After seeing Mr. Incredible lift his car in a fit of rage, he starts regularly coming to the Incredible family's driveway in hopes of seeing such feats again. He's there to witness Syndrome's plane come crashing down on the Parr house.

comment
Diving Save: When Mr Incredible looks about to attack Syndrome in a fit of rage, Mirage shoves him aside and gets caught in Incredible's grip instead. This likely fuels her anger when Syndrome is willing to risk her death to call Incredible's bluff.

Heroes Want Redheads: Helen/Elastigirl had long, bright red hair when young. Now that she's older, she keeps it short and auburn.

Talking Is a Free Action
 The Incredibles / int_ff5a74c8
comment
Talking Is a Free Action: This trope is mercilessly deconstructed in this universe under the term "monologuing". Multiple times throughout the movie, monologuing is either the butt of a joke (such as when Frozone recounts a story where the villain had him on the ropes and lost the advantage because they wouldn't shut up) or it's subverted to dangerous effect (such as when Syndrome realizes he's monologuing which prevents Mr. Incredible's sneak attack from succeeding).

comment
Shown Their Work: Helen's radio-speak is realistic. In the commentary Brad Bird points out how Mark Andrews wrote the script using military language used in emergencies, and that Helen's voice actor (Holly Hunter) insisted on knowing exactly what everything she was saying meant. "VFR on top" indicates she is flying in the regime of Visual Flight Rules 'on top' of a cloud cover. She then requests vectors to the "initial", the initial landing approach. "Angels 10" is her altitude call - ten thousand feet. "Track east" is her current direction of travel from her current position. Her "buddy-spiked" mayday is US Air Force code, as a warning not to fire, given to an aircraft who has radar lock on a friendly - in this case, Helen was referring to the missiles she thought were fired by friendlies. "Transmitting in the Blind Guard" is a call on the emergency frequency where 2-way communication has not been established. Also, while understandable given her children are aboard the plane being threatened by missiles, she makes the common mistake of saying "repeat" over the radio, when proper protocol is "say again." This is especially important when broadcasting over military channels, where "repeat" is a call for indirect fire, which is exactly what Helen is trying to call OFF in her mayday.

Larynx Dissonance
 The Incredibles / int_ffae1b5e
comment
Larynx Dissonance: Director Brad Bird voices Edna. This wasn't originally intended, but producers thought his "scratch", or guidance performance, was good enough. This happens frequently at Pixar. According to commentary, Brad Bird initially wanted someone else (Lily Tomlin) to voice Edna Mode. When he called her and gave a demonstration of what he wanted the voice to sound like, she laughed and asked him what he needed her for. He already had the voice down! Played with in the Italian dub (and the French dub as well), where the voice actor is a woman (Amanda Lear) known for her distinctly deep and masculine voice.
