** A version of Abyss--one of Apocalypse's horsemen--later appeared in the normal MarvelUniverse, but due to Apocalypse not ruling the world, he was a hero and Damask's 616 counterpart is {{ComicBook/Excalibur}} villain Emma Steed. Oh, and thanks to events in ''Uncanny X-Force'', there's now a 616 version of Holocaust, calling himself Genocide.

** Numerous characters are on different sides in this reality, including Sabretooth, Exodus, Domino, Mystique, Sinister, Cyclops, Havok, and Dark Beast, who even crossed over to the main MarvelUniverse and became a recurring X-Villain.

** Whatever Magneto did to Nemesis after the latter killed the Scarlet Witch. The event apparently damaged Nemesis so much, he had to exist within a containment suit from then on, renaming himself Holocaust.

** Not counting the ten-year revival ([[FanonDiscontinuity many fans don't]]), Psylocke is the most notable no-show, though WildMassGuessing suggests that she was lobotomized as part of Apocalypse's Brain Trust (a collection of disembodied telepathic brains that serve as Big Blue's primary psychic defense), thus explaining her brother Brian's almost manic dedication to bringing Apocalypse down.

** The lack of magic or magic users like Comicbook/DoctorStrange or X-Men ally Amanda Sefton has also been noted. Strange ''possibly'' died during the culling, when he still was merely a human surgeon, along with Peter Parker, Reed Richards and Johnny Storm. And Cap's probably floating in a block of ice, somewhere in the Artic.

* CanonForeigner: Among others, Charles Lehnsherr, Dead-Eye, and Switchback. The only thing the [=AoA=] Arclight, Bastion, and Wolverine share with their classic Marvel Universe namesakes are the names. The classic Arclight is a woman ([=AoA=] Arclight's a man), the normal MU Bastion appeared as a mutant-hater ''after'' [=AoA=], and the [=AoA=] version of the classic {{Wolverine}} goes by the name Weapon X. Sugar Man had no known counterpart in the classic Marvel Universe, but as noted below he, plus Dark Beast, X-Man, and Holocaust (whose respective counterparts are Beast, Cable, and Genocide), did literally immigrate from the [=AoA=] reality to the classic universe in the finale.

* AndThenWhat: This is discussed by the BigBad himself. After accomplishing his plan to TakeOverTheWorld (or at least conquer much of it and turning the rest into a CrapsackWorld), Apocalypse realizes that governing his brutal new [[TheSocialDarwinist dog-eat-dog]] empire is actually pretty tiresome.

In 1995, this crossover from Creator/MarvelComics among the [[Comicbook/XMen X-Titles]] began when Legion, son of Professor Xavier, travelled back in time to kill {{Magneto}}, but ended up killing his own father instead. This story, itself a minor crossover called ''Legion Quest,'' led to the main ''Age of Apocalypse'' crossover.

* {{Irony}}: {{Magneto}} has always been concerned about a human genocide against mutants. Instead, there ends up being a mutant genocide against humans.

* WorldOfBadass / TookALevelInBadass: The [=AoA=]-verse is truly an awful place, dominated by the Darwinist decree of 'Survival of the Fittest.' And yet, this same philosophy creates a 'verse where nearly ''everyone'' is even more badass then they were in the original timeline, in one way or another. Thought that Sabretooth was already a tough mo-fo? Wait until you see his first fight with Holocaust. You don't think Iceman is living up to his full potential power-wise? Let [=AoA=] Iceman show 616 Iceman how it's done. And Wolverine manages to kick ''just'' as much ass, if not more, with just the one claw. The list goes on and on, which makes sense, considering just what it takes to survive in this hellhole.
