* AllYourColorsCombined: See below.
* AllYourPowersCombined: White Light which is created by combining the light of all seven Corps. It was supposed to be the only way to destroy Nekron (instead it helped him). Carol lampshades this, saying "I think I saw this on [[WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers a Saturday morning cartoon]]." A regular Black Lantern can only be destroyed by being hit by a blast of light from at least two of the Corps, and one of them has to be a Green Lantern one.

Atrocitus. His entire race, including his wife and daughter were killed by Manhunters. Small wonder he's been on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge ever since.

* AbortedArc: The War of Light was intended to be significantly longer than just the introductions and opening battles between the Corps, as the SplashPage in SinestroCorpsWar implied. Instead, elements like Mongul's implied quest for each Corps' rings, and Evil Star's presence in backstories for Black Hand and a Blue Lantern were simply abandoned to make way for the CrisisCrossover.

** Driq, an undead Green Lantern whose will was so great that death could not sway him from his duty, briefly shows up wearing a mix of both Green and Black Lantern uniforms, and both rings. While he acts as an advisor for John Stewart, it's not clear if he survived the event, much less whether he was honestly aiding John or simply pretending the way other Black Lanterns often did.

* IndyPloy: With the Lanterns off of Earth recruiting their Corps, the remaining Earth heroes have to improvise against the Black Lanterns for a while:
** Batman and Robin recruit Comicbook/{{Deadman}} and Comicbook/{{Etrigan}}, neither of whom the Black Lanterns can see, to bring them Mr. Freeze's cold gun, which they use to [[HarmlessFreezing freeze themselves solid]].
** Comicbook/{{Superboy}} steals Black Lantern Psycho-Pirate's emotion controlling Medusa Mask and forces both the Pirate and Black Lantern Kal-L to feel emotion; the resulting RealityBreakingParadox shuts them down.
** The Comicbook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica weaponizes the power of the Thunderbolt genie against the Black Lanterns of their former members.
** Bizarro throws Black Lantern Solomon Grundy into the sun.
** Poison Ivy has one of her {{Man Eating Plant}}s swallow Black Lantern Black Mask, with the plant digesting him faster than he can regenerate.
** The Shade seals off Black Lantern Comicbook/{{Starman}} into the Darkforce Dimension.
** Comicbook/TheRay, Dr. Light, and Halo of the Comicbook/{{Outsiders}} discover by accident that, since they command the full light spectrum already, they can destroy Black Lanterns on their own.

* RageAgainstTheAuthor: Superboy-Prime calls the writers at DC Comics out for continuing the story and giving the Black Lanterns the advantage even though he already proved that the comic book characters all exist and really are in serious danger. It doesn't work.
