* StrongAsTheyNeedToBe: In his case, as much he has eaten. When starving even normally far weaker beings can hurt him, and the Thing once knocked him out. When he is fully fed however, he is extremely formidable, and can destroy an armada spanning several solar systems in a single attack. Between that, it varies depending on the story.

* ForegoneConclusion: InUniverse. In ''The Hunger'', Galactus tells Darkseid he knows Norrin Radd will someday regain his memory and turn on him, and that it'll be a difficult time for him. He isn't particularly upset about it, just knows it's going to happen and there's nothing he'll be able to do about it.

* WorldOfHam: When Galactus encounters the New Gods, PurpleProse and dramatic posturing goes UpToEleven. (Which makes since as both are Creator/JackKirby creations.)

* NoSell: [[NighInvulnerability In a big way]]. Galactus has even shrugged off Darkseid's Omega Effect (which wasn't due to the Effect's power level not being enough, but the Effect must find the victim's weakness - Galactus has no such inherent weakness.) Galactus himself is not immune to being No Sell'd, including by The Marquis Of Death, Mikaboshi, and The Beyonder.

It was not pity, but pragmatism.[[/note]]) Galactus himself is not immune to being No Sell'd, including by The Marquis Of Death, Mikaboshi, and The Beyonder.

** Subverted when he is confronted by Master Order and Lord Chaos after his reversion at the hands of the Ultimates. Back during the events of ''Infinity Gauntlet'', Thanos rated either of them individually well above Galactus, but now that he has fused with his Ultimate counterpart and been reversed (which removes his hunger, not to mentoin directly conflicts with order and chaos' fundamental existence), he not only defies them, but subjects ''them'' to this trope.

In ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel, he's one of the core members of ComicBook/TheUltimates - ironic, considering his rampage through the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe ended up destroying the team.

* TookALevelInBadass: It might seem impossible seeing how godlike he already was to begin with, but due to the fact that he had suffered quite a bit from TheWorfEffect in recent years, the writers' attempts at CharacterRerailment have resulted in this:
** First, he gets dropped off in the Ultimate universe and fuses with his Earth-1610 version.
** Then,after the events of ''Secret Wars'', the Ultimates "reversed" him ridding him of his [[WorfHadTheFlu hunger]] and turning him into a life-giver. This has upped his position in the cosmic foodchain a bit to boot.



* UniquenessDecay: Jack Kirby never intended for Galactus to be used past the first story he appeared in. He objected to all the character background later given for Galactus as well as the characterization for ComicBook/SilverSurfer in later stories. He wanted Galactus and his herald to remain a mystery and felt that overexposure and excessive character development would undermine the character's effect. Given that there are so many "gods" and other cosmic entities in the Marvel Universe, he was right.

Only in recent years have writers attempted to restore Galactus position in the grand scheme of things, and even then Galactus will always be more of a character than a true mysterious force of nature as he was intended to be.

* WowingCthulhu: Those who are able to impress him or gain his respect are made his heralds. Silver Surfer is the prime example.
