* TheUnfavorite: Darkseid hates all three of his sons, but he hates the youngest, Grayven, most of all. Probably because Grayven is basically Darkseid-lite, there's nothing he can do that Darkseid can't do better; and he tries to be TheStarscream. Kalibak may be incompetent DumbMuscle but at least he's loyal.

--> '''Darkseid's internal monologue:''' Long, long ago, Darkseid and Master Mayhem trained together as warriors on Apokolips. Darkseid saw his friend defeat countless foes beneath the burning blaze of the planet's fire pits -- and always assumed his friend unkillable. As he watches the Armageddon creature tear his friend limb from limb with a swift brutality unimagined until this day -- Darkseid experiences the very first twinge of fear in his life.

Added DiffLines:

** Although Thanos was inspired by Darkseid, the similiarities between the two characters are only on a superficial level as Thanos, [[DependingOnTheWriter at least when he's written by Starlin]], is not really interested in enslaving the universe like Darkseid and he's mostly motivated by his desire of being loved by Lady Death, nor was intended to be an embodiment of evil.

* BigBad: In almost every adaptation, in every media, Darkseid's ''the'' villain.
** Fittingly, he was the BigBad of the final season of ''Series/{{Smallville}}''.

* GeniusBruiser: Not only strong, but also smart.

to:

* GeniusBruiser: Not Darkseid considers himself above physical combat, preferring to let his minions or Omega Beams do the dirty work. Get too close to him, however, and Darkseid is only strong, but also smart.too happy to deliver a CurbStompBattle.



* GodOfEvil: More specifically, the God of Tyranny.

* TheParanoiac: Shows many signs of a paranoiac {{Sadist}}. Though always a total bastard, Darkseid became insanely mistrustful and paranoid after his mother Heggra, who had manipulated and controlled him his entire life, murdered the only woman he ever loved via Darkseid's own underling Desaad, with Darkseid responding by ordering Desaad to murder Heggra back, and then treating him and every other underling with even more cruelty and mistrust than before. Questioning Darkseid is an instant death-sentence, and his ultimate ambition is to control all life everywhere and eradicate TheEvilsOfFreeWill including love, happiness and hope, turning it into a bleak, miserable dystopia where everyone suffers and worships him as God. He fits six of the seven criteria; the only thing he misses out on is ConspiracyTheorist, and that because everyone Apokolips ''is'' conspiring against him, but most are [[TheDreaded far too terrified]] to actually ''try'' anything, so he rarely takes such plots seriously.

* PragmaticVillainy: His disgust of Desaad isn't because EvenEvilHasStandards. It's because Desaad is a petty sadist while Darkseid has far grander goals in mind. He thinks Sleez is a moron because he once mind controlled Superman and the best he could come up with was making him star in a porno.

* RaiseHimRightThisTime: [[spoiler:The finale of the Darkseid War event saw his daughter Grail kill him only to revive him as her pawn using the Anti-Life Equation. After she was tricked into killing him, he was separated from the Equation and reverted back to a baby. Grail vowed she would raise him with love, just as her mother did her, but we can only speculate whether it will work out -- and his smouldering red-orange eyes aren't exactly a step in the right direction...]]

* FightsLikeANormal: Despite possessing a multitude of powers such as telepathic mind control, telekinesis, matter manipulation, erosion blasts, teleportation, and chronokinesis, the majority of Darkseid's fights against Superman will almost always see him fight the Man of Steel with his bare hands(with some occasional Omega Beams of course).
