* ActuallyADoombot: In ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' this is the case for Darkseid and the ComicBook/NewGods, where the versions Earth see are somewhat limited projections of the real gods which actually operate on a higher plane of reality. In other versions the Darkseid the reader sees is an avatar of the will of the real Darkseid, who is imprisoned, forever, on the Source Wall.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Darkseid epitomizes the BadBoss tendencies, he will throw you off the cliff the second your contract expires.
** Another case of DependingOnTheWriter: Sometimes this is an honest reward (would YOU like to continue working for someone like this?), and sometimes, Darkseid promotes or otherwise favors his lieutenant, such as with Granny Goodness.
** Being thrown off a cliff for succeeding is actually the best outcome you can hope for when working for Darkseid. And you get to live the longest amount of time too. Considering what he does to those [[YouHaveFailedMe who fail him]], you best not screw things up.
** In maybe the sickest twist of this Trope, Darkseid has the power to resurrect the dead, so it's not uncommon for him to tell his lieutenants YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness, only to bring them back to life when it appears they'll be useful again. [[FateWorseThanDeath Over and over again...]]

to:

* YouHaveFailedMe: Darkseid is a big fan of this trope, as you might expect. If you don't succeed in a task he's given, even if you're one of his lieutenants, you can expect to pay ''dearly'' for it.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Depending on his whims (and [[DependingOnTheWriter the writer]]), Darkseid epitomizes the BadBoss tendencies, may outright kill servants whose services he will throw you off the cliff the second your contract expires.
** Another case of DependingOnTheWriter: Sometimes
no longer needs. Of course, since he can bring people BackFromTheDead, this is an honest reward (would YOU like to continue working for someone like this?), and sometimes, Darkseid promotes or otherwise favors his lieutenant, such as with Granny Goodness.

** The ''Return of Bruce Wayne'' series implies that a coven of witches who lived in the forests outside of Gotham City unknowingly worshiped Darkseid, who they understandably mistook for {{Satan}}. This would mean that Darkseid's religion has been a subculture on Earth since at least TheColonialPeriod.

* NoNonsenseNemesis

to:

* NoNonsenseNemesisNoNonsenseNemesis: There is no depravity or quirks in Darkseid, just tyranny and subdued homicidal rage.



* TheStoic: Most on the time.
** NotSoStoic: Several times.

to:

* TheStoic: Most on of the time.
time Darkseid is always in control of his emotions.
** NotSoStoic: Several times. When Batman threatened his whole planet Darkseid trashed him so hard he needed a motherbox to heal from it. He regained composure quickly after that, comply to Batman's request and even take time to offhandedly shame him and the human race for trying to destroy a whole world for victory.



** Later on, however, Superman returns the favor and beats Darkseid to a ''bloody pulp''. [[spoiler: And successfully kills him. Dang near sticks, too.]]

to:

** Later on, however, Superman returns the favor and beats Darkseid to a ''bloody pulp''. [[spoiler: And successfully kills him. Dang near sticks, too.]]]] From then on Darkseid makes sure to coldly dispatch of Superman by any dirty trick available and will deny his defeat.



* TheUnfavorite: Darkseid hates all three of his sons. But he hates the youngest, Grayven, most of all. Probably because Grayven is basically [[BigBadWannabe Darkseid-lite]], there's nothing he can do that Darkseid can't do better; and he tries to be TheStarscream. Kalibak may be an [[DumbMuscle incompetent brute]], but at least he's loyal. Darkseid also begrudgingly respects his second son Orion.

* EvilSoundsDeep: Anytime Darkseid shows up in something other than the comicbook world, chances are that he'll have a very deep voice, which is rather befitting for someone of his stature.

** Outright parodied on ''Teen Titans Go''. His deep, echoing, gravelly voice terrifies the Titans...and then it turns out he's just had a cold for a long time. One lozenge later, [[spoiler: he turns into Weird Al.]]

Darkseid was created by Creator/JackKirby and later used by ''Comicbook/{{Legion Of Super-Heroes}}'' writer Paul Levitz, in "The Great Darkness Saga". Darkseid (pronounced "dark-side"; [[AwesomeMcCoolname birthname Uxas]]) stands tall among the ComicBook/NewGods, ruling dread Apokolips as he wages a constant war for control of the universe and possession of the Anti-Life Equation, which will allow him to either conquer the universe or destroy it, DependingOnTheWriter.

* AbusiveParents: He's a hateful parent to all of his sons. He even [[spoiler: killed his son Orion as part of his bid for conquering reality in ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'']]. And [[spoiler: Orion]] was the son he remotely had any respect for. His treatment of his other sons is even worse. Kalibak is scorned by his father for being a simple-minded thug and reminding him of his deceased wife Suli; while Grayven is hated for constantly trying to usurp him. (Which he fails at every time)

*** Though, it's notable that in the New 52, the Anti-Monitor is ''terrified'' of Darkseid, and feels like he needs to devour more universes to even stand a chance against him. [[spoiler: Needless to say, it didn't work.]]
