%% * BadassGay

to:

%% * BadassGayBadassGay: Don't try beating him up or targeting him for his orientation. It just won't go well.



%% * EyeScream

to:

%% * EyeScreamEyeScream: What he tends to dole out. Not to mention getting a look at him without his sunglasses is this not so much implied as promised. Be it actual, or haunting your dreams for years to come.



%%* BigFun
%%* BoisterousBruiser

to:

%%* BigFun
%%* BoisterousBruiser
* BigFun: What he basically is. He's out to enjoy himself and is quick to help others manage to do so when their day (or month) is otherwise turning out to be dismal.
* BoisterousBruiser: He's not shy when it comes to most scraps, put it that way. [[spoiler: Although, he initially deemed going against the Corinthian to be far more terrifying than worthwhile. Accurately.]]

%%* SharpDressedMan* SharpDressedMan: Waistcoat? Suit? Tailored? Classic cut? All checked.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Glimpses of Death when she was younger suggest that she was once a good deal less cheerful and friendly; somewhere along the line, possibly just through doing her job over and over again, she TookALevelInKindness.

Added DiffLines:

* PreInsanityReveal: Delirium was once Delight, the personification of joy and happiness, but changed to Delirium long before the onset of the story for reasons unclear. She's a bit of a MadGod. In a few flashbacks, we get to see her before her MadnessMakeover.

** The Dreaming's inhabitants in special sees him as this, which is right to a certain extent: while he has Morpheus' memories and knowledge, they still see him as a new guy since he is essentially different character (and it doesn't help that most of the Dreaming's residents who appear often, such as Matthew, Cain and Lucien, actually met him as a human kid). Matthew decides to stay by his side in most part due to believing that Daniel will need some advice, being now inexperienced of sorts. In ''The Dreaming'' spin-off they actually refer to him as "the kid" or "the young master", which they of course ''never'' did with Morpheus.

* OutOfFocus: After his original arc where he's saved, future arcs with the Walker family focus on his older sister and he'll only occasionally get a mention or cameo.

Added DiffLines:

** An enormous example zigzagged in Overture. Desire essentially engineered Dream's salvation and enabled him to save the entire multiverse by sending him the tools he'd need and the only aspect of himself that he'd ever listen to. Not only this, but it did this three times (the first two attempts failed). However, it had as much need for self-preservation as selflessness and because success meant a multicosmic retcon, it forgot that it had done it and reverted back to it's old ways.

The Endless is a rather dysfunctional family of seven siblings who are each {{Anthropomorphic Personification}}s of seven concepts. They are the children of Night and Time and are implied to ''be'' the concepts they represent. In order of oldest to youngest, they are known as Destiny, Death, Dream, Destruction, Desire, Despair, and Delirium. Each of the Endless has a realm in which they are completely omnipotent, and they can even shape the realm which is opposite to theirs. They are generally uncomfortable in each other's realms and only travel to each other's realms when it is completely necessary.

* WellDoneSonGuy: Issue #6 of ''Overture'' suggests he wants his parents' approval.



* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Yes, ''Destiny'' of all beings gets this at one point, losing his temper during ''[[ComicBook/TheSandmanOverture Overture]]'' [[spoiler:because thanks to Dream - an aspect of Dream, to be precise - something happened that was not in his book.]]

* WellDoneSonGuy: According to Dream she's this for her mother, Night. Issue #6 of ''Overture'' suggests Dream himself might want her approval too.

* {{God}}: Yeah.

to:

* {{God}}: Yeah.
Unlike in the Marvel Universe, where the various human deities are all around the same level of power and are subordinate to more [[CosmicEntity abstract cosmic beings]], The Presence is explicitly the Abrahamic Creator and the highest being.
* GodInHumanForm: On the few occasions He does manifest, His preferred form is a pudgy British guy with a bowler hat and umbrella for some reason.
* IHaveManyNames: He is typically called The Presence, but has manifested as [[Comicbook/TheSpectre the Voice]], [[Comicbook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths the Great Hand]], [[Comicbook/FinalCrisis the Overmonitor]], and [[Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} Wally the God-boy]] amongst others.
* TheMaker: Creator of the DC Universe.
* TheOmnipotent: The be-all, end-all authority within TheMultiverse. However, He has no authority ''outside'' it, a loophole Lucifer exploits in his own series to become a Creator himself.
* PassingTheTorch: At the end of ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'' [[spoiler: He decides to retire and appoint His half-human granddaughter Elaine Belloc, daughter of ArchangelMichael and a mortal woman, as His successor]].
