* TheChosenMany: There are eight Corps, the seven that feed off one part of the emotional spectrum and the Black Corps, who… don't. [[spoiler: There's a ninth, at least temporarily.]]

-->'''The Flash''': I still don't get why you don't do more to protect your identity. This new Lantern? Kyle? His mask covers most of his face. Smart kid.\\
'''Hal''': Clark hides behind a pair of glasses and you're worried about me?\\
'''The Flash''': Clark slouches, wears clothes two sizes too big and raises his voice an octave.

* [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Comic Book Writers Have No Sense Of Scale]]: According to BN, life originated on [[spoiler: Earth. However Earth is only 5 billion years old, while the universe as a whole is about 13]]. Many other lifeforms besides the Guardians already existed by then - the Old Gods from the ComicBook/NewGods saga for example.

** Speaking of Hal, [[spoiler: his merging with the White Entity to trigger the creation of White Rings. Sure, it stops Nekron and brings back a lot of deceased characters. But one of those resurrected is Barry's arch-enemy, the Reverse-Flash. That means Hal's indirectly responsible for the events of ''The Flash: Rebirth'' and the murder of Barry's mom at Thawne's hands]].

* RasputinianDeath: Not as elaborate as ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}'s in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', but the way that Nekron was stopped was [[spoiler:by having the White Lanterns bring Black Hand to life, which caused Black Hand to vomit up White Rings. After one of them managed to destroy the Black Central Power Battery by resurrecting the Anti-Monitor, the rest of the White Rings vanquished Nekron completely]]. Even then, [[spoiler: it doesn't really kill Nekron - it just sent him back to the Land of the Unliving]].

* TheReveal: [[spoiler: Earth has been targeted because it is where the Entity, the source of the White Light of Creation, first arrived in the universe and where it's hiding, meaning that life began on Earth, not Maltus (the Guardians' homeworld) and the Guardians tried to keep Earth off other races' radar to prevent them from threatening the Entity. Abin Sur learned this, but the Guardians' cover-up meant everyone thought he had lost it. Learning that his best friend was right when believed insane, Sinestro took this revelation poorly]].
* ReviveKillsZombie: Averted -- being blasted with the white light of creation didn't do jack to Nekron. [[spoiler: Played straight in the finale: Nekron is undone after his link to the physical world (Black Hand) and his power source (the Anti-Monitor) are revived.]]
* SaveTheVillain: In the end, [[spoiler: the day is saved by Black Hand being brought back to life]].

** In issue 5, the various Corps leaders all charge up their rings, having a roll call of their oaths - except for Larfleeze, who's hungry again. The Indigo Tribe oath can count, too; this is the first time we've heard it, but it's in [[{{Fictionary}} an alien language]]. Unlike Larfleeze's, though, the Indigo Tribe one DOES come with a reveal. [[spoiler: Abin Sur's name is part of the oath.]]

* YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead: The comic is all about this. When the Black Lantern Corps is created, rings reanimate the dead (mostly meta-humans as well alien races) and the carriers gaining a quick regeneration and NighInvulnerability. [[spoiler:Discovered during the series that the only way to kill Black Lanterns are [[AllYourPowersCombined combining two or more Lantern powers]], one of which ''must'' be Green, or [[GoldAndWhiteAreDivine being a White Lantern]].]]

* ForgottenFallenFriend: A meta example occurs in the ''Justice League of America'' tie-ins. A villain tells B-list heroine Doctor Light that once he kills her, the superhero community will briefly mourn but quickly forget about her. He then cites several superheroes (such as Triumph) who were all quickly forgotten about by both writers and fans after their deaths.
