  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Bob: I've got to succeed! So she can succeed. So we can succeed!

Cquote2.svg


Incredibles 2 is Pixar's twentieth film, and was released in 2018. It is an Immediate Sequel to The Incredibles, which was released 14 years prior.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back, but this time Helen is in the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with the kids to navigate the day-to-day heroics of "normal" life. It's a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack's emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again — which is easier said than done, even when they're all Incredible.

A billionaire in charge of a massive tech company hatches a plan to make Supers legal again. Elastigirl must take down the Screenslaver, and in doing so, convince the public and lawmakers that Supers deserve to be legal. Meanwhile, Bob struggles to manage the kids, with all three having problems of their own.

For information on the DVD short Auntie Edna, see the Pixar Shorts page.

Tropes used in Incredibles 2 include:

A-E

  • Adults Are Useless: While the adult Supers defy this trope normally, they play it straight when hypnotized. When only the kids remain un-hypnotized, it is up to them to rescue the others.
  • Aesop Amnesia: Despite Helen becoming supporting of her kids using their powers, after they were busted for intervening in the Underminer situation, she reneges on this.
  • Brick Joke:
    • When the Parrs first arrive at Winston's "spare" house, Bob is initially very impressed with the "water feature" when Dash plays around with the house's decorative indoor ponds. A few days later, when Bob is looking for the remote to his Incredibile, he falls into one of the decorative indoor ponds. After getting out, he mumbles "Stupid water feature!"
    • At the end of the credits, the Underminer's tunnel drilling machine emerges from the bottom of the screen and drives away.
  • Cool Boat: Winston's hydrofoil, the Everjust, boasts several visually appealing features. It has a conference room, a kitchen, accomodation, and a jet, which is used by Evelyn in her attempted escape.

F-K

  • Fan Service Pack: Elastigirl was redesigned to be more buxom and toned, and Violet has slightly wider hips and longer hair than in the first movie. Moreover, Violet and Tony received improved designs.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe: Almost all Supers have this in the form of a one-piece supersuit.
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: When Violet starts throwing a tantrum upon finding out that Dicker has wiped out Tony's memories of her, Dash nonchalantly asks his father if she is having 'adolescence'.
  • Gone Horribly Right: While Rick Dicker was able to erase Tony's memory of seeing Violet in her supersuit, the memory-wiping machine also removed all memories he had of her, including their upcoming date. This results in Violet being depressed and angry for most of the second act.
  • Have You Told Anyone Else?: Said almost word-for-word to Tony by Dicker in regards to Tony seeing Violet in her supersuit.
  • Hypno Trinket: Evelyn's hypno-goggles.
  • Heroes Gone Fishing: The last scene has the Parrs go to the movie theater with Tony, as part of Violet's second attempt at a date with him.
  • Immediate Sequel: The first film ended with the Parrs about to confront the Underminer, with this film starting with said confrontation.
  • I Never Said It Was Poison: Bob talks to Violet about the old days of his friend Rick Dicker erasing the memories of anyone discovering his or Helen's secret identity. Violet figures out Bob had Dicker erase Tony's memory.

  • Lighter and Softer: When compared to the first film. There is a lot less death and destruction, and the plot and themes are are lot lighter as well.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Bob struggles to do what Helen would normally do, including managing the kids' needs, the shopping, and laundry.
  • Mind Control Eyes: Everyone that wears hypno-goggles or are looking at hypnotizing patterns on screens has these.
  • Nostril Shot: When Bob pulls up to Edna's front gate, the screen is an extreme close-up of Edna's nose.
  • Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony: A man uses a giant pair of scissors to cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony for the Metrolev train.

S-Z

  • Super Registration Act: The movie is about trying to repeal the anti-Super law so that they can legally carry out superhero work.
  • Talking in Bed: Bob and Helen are in bed while Helen mulls over whether to accept Devtech's offer to be the poster girl for their Super re-legalization effort. Bob convinces Helen to take the job and make superheroes legal again.
