** A version of Abyss--one of Apocalypse's horsemen--later appeared in the normal Franchise/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.

* AdvancingWallOfDoom: As it turns out, the crystalizing wave that transformed the timeline into the [=AoA=] timeline was still going. The M'Kraan Crystal just ''hates'' temporal anomalies.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When Bishop is able to fix the timeline by getting Legion to stab the two of them, Legion bemoans that all he wanted to do is to make Xavier's dream come true, not realizing the damage he would do.

* ApocalypseNot: The ten-year revival series makes the world look much less nasty in comparison to the original run. The later ''Uncanny X-Force'' arc, on the other hand, restores the nastiness and adds more.



** William Stryker is revealed as one in the ''Uncanny X-Force'' arc, singlehandedly taking down a Sentinel without breaking a sweat.



** Holocaust himself is distinctly not happy about the way Nate utterly dismisses him.



* CurbstompBattle: Nate Grey demonstrates his credentials in the final battle with Apocalypse by swatting the powerful Holocaust like bug. While Holocaust later gets up for a Round 2 with Nate, as in their later encounters, Holocaust is hideously outclassed.



** [[spoiler: Jean later briefly became the heir of Apocalypse as well.]]

* MessianicArchetype: Nate a.k.a. X-Man. As per usual, he's gunning for devil figure Apocalypse.



* 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 set of claws. The list goes on and on, which makes sense, considering just what it takes to survive in this hellhole.

* GoThroughMe: During a massive battle, Colossus sees that his little sister is in trouble and rushes to save her, with gusto. Iceman steps up and says something along the lines of "No can do pal, if you want to get out of here you'll have to go through m-"... and the next panel shows Colossus smashing Iceman into a million pieces. [[spoiler:Though that wouldn't actually kill him now after some power {{Ret Con}}s.]]

** 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 [[Series/CaptainBritan Brian]]'s almost manic dedication to bringing him down.
