** Earth-Prime, DC Comics' analog of "the real world", from which Superboy-Prime came, seen mostly in the ''Superman'' title tie-in stories.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: In the ''Who's Who'' guidebooks, it is said that if Kal-L, Earth-Two Lois Lane, Earth-Three Alexander Luthor, Jr. and Superboy-Prime ever returned to the surviving universe, it would mean its destruction... they just didn't specify ''[[ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis how]]''.

* ContinuityReboot: The Crisis' ending was essentially a reboot with an in-universe explanation. The most obvious are ''ComicBook/TheManOfSteel'', ''ComicBook/BatmanYearOne'', ''ComicBook/WonderWoman: Gods and Mortals'', ''The Legend of Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}'', ''ComicBook/CaptainAtom'', and ''ComicBook/{{Shazam}}: A New Beginning''/''The Power of Shazam!''. ''GreenLantern: Emerald Dawn'' came a few years later.

* PyrrhicVictory: Uncountable googol plexes worth of people die in meaningless terror and agony, and the sole remaining universe gets {{Retcon}}ned into a DarkerAndEdgier, BloodierAndGorier universe for many years afterward. As Jonathan Woodward's ''[[https://www.prismnet.com/~woodward/chroma/crisis.html The Annotated Crisis on infinite Earths]]'' memorably put it, "The current DC Universe is built on a foundation of corpses."

''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' was followed by a companion volume, ''The History of the DC Universe'', which attempted to lay out a new, concise narrative for Franchise/TheDCU; it's still worth a read as a snapshot of a bygone time in comics with beautiful art by George Perez.

Because of the holes in continuity it left behind, ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' has spawned several CrisisCrossover sequels that have attempted, with varying success, to make sense of the mess. These include 1994's ''[[ComicBook/ZeroHour Zero Hour: Crisis in Time]]'', 2006's ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', 2007's ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'', 2008's ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', and 2009's ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''. Much of the Creator/GeoffJohns era as head creative mind for GreenLantern also ties in directly with Crisis (specifically the Anti-Monitor). The in-universe ramifications of the Crisis were also a recurring theme of the late-'80s MindScrew series ''Comicbook/AnimalMan''. Much of its imagery and backstory was referenced in ''ComicBook/JLAAvengers''.

** It's even lampshaded in the story. After all the earths merge, it's noted that people know Supergirl died but can't remember ''how.''

* OpportunisticBastard: After the Anti-Monitor seemingly flees the universe following Flash destroying his cannon, Luthor and Brainiac decide it's a ''great'' time to gather every single villain in the Multiverse that's still alive and conquer the remaining planets. Once the Spectre informs everyone that the Anti-Monitor is going to undo existence at the dawn of time, they agree that allying with the heroes must be done to ensure their own survival.
