* RedemptionFailure: Zig-Zagged. The symbiote's cleansing by the Agents of the Cosmos is undone when it bonds to Mercurio, causing it to relapse back into its evil state. While it later comes to its senses, ''wanting'' to be good but struggling to suppress its violent urges, bonding to Lee Price and being tricked by Spider-Man causes it to almost completely revert back to its bloodthirsty, villainous self when it returns to Eddie Brock. It still wants to do good, but will now kill anyone that would in any way threaten to undo its bond with Eddie. It's later on shown to still have a healthy sense of self-awareness and ability to feel remorse, however, and after being supposedly cured by Alchemax it shows enough restraint ''not'' to murder Spider-Woman when she assaults it and Eddie in their own appartment, opting to try and convince her to leave them peacefully instead. As shown in ''Poison-X'', the Symbiote is occasionally more reasonable than Eddie himself.

* SanitySlippage: ''ComicBook/VenomSpaceKnight'', ''Venom'' Vol. 3, and the rebranded ''Venom'' Vol. 1 show the symbiote slowly succumbing to rage and bloodlust again after being cleansed by the Klyntar Hive Mind, almost-completely reverting back to the predatory monster it once was despite Flash and Eddie's best attempts to restore and preserve its sanity.

* BadassGrandpa: The symbiote is dangerous even without its hosts, has lived a ''very'' long time, and it is also a "[[NoBiologicalSex grandfather]]", having grandchildren called Toxin and Scorn.
* BelatedBackstory: Why the symbiote was in that container on Battleworld was revealed in the 1995 ''Planet of the Symbiotes'', released eleven years after ''ComicBook/SecretWars''. More details about its pre-Earth past have since been revealed in the 2008 ''Venom: Dark Origin'' and 2016 ''ComicBook/VenomSpaceKnight'' series.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: As revealed in ''Venom: Space Knight'', Venom was born with the intent of becoming an Agent of the Cosmos, a noble warrior dedicated to maintaining peace across the universe. However, its first host used it to carry out a genocide against his homeworld, reducing it to a barren wasteland and corrupting the symbiote into a bloodthirsty predator. Despite this, it retained its desire to protect and empower its hosts, eventually leading to the other corrupted symbiotes viewing it as an aberration and imprisoning it.

* ShipperOnDeck: During the final group battle against Lee Price, the Symbiote tells Eddie that Black Cat is "very capable". Eddie actually agrees, but reminds the Symbiote she probably won't forget that one time they beat the snot out of her, when they first met.

* BadassLongcoat: When bonded to Lee Pice as Maniac, it ''was'' the badass longcoat -- taking on the form of a black trench coat with the spider emblem's legs lining the lapels. It could also bulk up to replicate his Venom form, and grow even larger.

* TheDreaded: Despite its weaknesses being more-or-less common knowledge, SHIELD considers the Venom symbiote to be a top-level threat to humanity, on par with Doctor Doom, ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, and the ComicBook/RedSkull. Symbiotes in general are this throughout the galaxy, as a drunk Kree who'd never been to Earth before recognizes what it is and wets himself before being eaten.
* EatingTheEnemy: When bonded to Deadpool, Mac Gargan, and Flash Thompson, the symbiote tended to deal with threats by eating them. Even deific beings like Asgardians, Frost Giants, and [[EldritchAbomination Old Ones]] (albeit glamoured as fairies) are on the menu.
* EmotionEater: In some story lines the symbiote feeds off its host's negative emotions, and amplifies them as well. This becomes a problem when the symbiote is purged of its rage and bloodlust, since there's nothing stopping Flash's own hotheadedness from causing it to relapse.

* DemonicPossession: After [[ComicBook/GhostRider Zarathos]] was separated from Alejandra and captured by Blackheart, the symbiote seized control of Flash intending to absorb the Spirit of Vengeance and gain demonic powers. Later, Daimon Hellstrom possessed the symbiote with a powerful demon to turn it into one of his Monsters of Evil, but Venom used the Hell Mark to suppress it. While the symbiote and the demon initially [[VillainTeamUp got along]], the symbiote realized the demon was slowly pulling a GrandTheftMe on it and shunted the Hell Mark and demon onto its long-devoured clone, which it puked up and bonded to Andi, turning her into Mania.
