* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: He rules Apokolips for this reason. He's one of the only villains who can take on Superman in a fight and his [[GeniusBruiser incredible intelligence]] makes him even more dangerous. When he shows up, it's likely going to take an enormous effort to bring him down.

** 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....]]

** The application of this varies, of course. The ComicBook/SuicideSquad earned this once he realized they dared to invade Apokalips, but the survivors were pretty much made of SurvivorGuilt from then on, most notably with Amanda Waller, who's become borderline suicidal with some of her risktaking since. Similarly, in the DCAU, this is Darkseid's vengeance on Superman at the end of his series, with implications that humanity never wholly trusts Superman again. [[spoiler: Unlike in mainstream continuity, this does last in DCAU, and leads to one of Superman's closest friends in his series to join Project Cadmus in JLAU.]]

* VillainDecay: He was created to be the villain the entire DC comics universe would have to united against if they were to have a shot at beating him to a villain a sufficiently motivated Superman could defeat by himself after the CosmicRetcon that was ''Crisis On Infinite Earths''.[[note]]For reference, the villain Mongul was created to let Superman fight a Darkseid like villain without reducing Darkseid to a single superhero threat[[/note]] This was undone with ''another'' cosmic retcon, ''Final Crisis'', that revealed every single appearance Darkseid made since the end of the first crisis event was in fact [[ActuallyADoomBot an avatar]] and that he was still the villain the entire universe would have to unite against to have a shot at beating.

** In the DCAU, this sets up a CrowningMomentofAwesome for Darkseid. Throughout Superman's series, Darkseid relied primarily on his minions for his dirty work, and often simply observes them, hands clasped behind his back and seemingly passive. Then Superman punches Darkseid... and Darkseid not only takes it, he proceeds to give the only CurbStompBattle in the series with Superman on the receiving end. Superman only barely survives by a desperation move that hurts both of them so much that the fight cannot continue.

* SufficientlyAdvancedAlien: He uses technology and science (Well, comic-book science) for his powers, but there are few who dare tell him that they are not advanced enough.

** [[spoiler:Even that is a SubvertedTrope. As shown in [[Comicbook/{{New 52}} the reboot]] of [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica Justice League]], Darkseid wasn't just rebooted from ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}. If the mental tortures and memories given to Superman in the new OriginsEpisode of the League is to be considered, he was just transferred into the [=DCnU=].]]
