** One of Creator/GarthEnnis' stories features an unnamed member of the British royal family as a member of a particularly depraved club for the rich and bored, who ''volunteered'' to possessed by a demon in the hopes of becoming a leader capable of ruling uncontested. Yes, Garth Ennis ''is'' Irish, why do you ask?

** Also features said member's equally-deviant brother who wouldn't mind the possessed guy being killed, as this would put him one spot closer to the throne.

** One of Creator/GarthEnnis' stories features an unnamed member of the British royal family as a member of a particularly depraved club for the rich and bored, who is possessed by a demon as part of a plot to split the world into the leaders and the led. The guy behind it all even spells it out in case we didn't get it: The role of the royal family is to feed on the blood of its people. Why yes, Garth Ennis ''is'' Irish, why do you ask?
--->Funny how "serving your country" usually means "serving the people in charge of it"...

I wanted a king who would have the iron will to rule '''absolutely'''. And believe me, he '''was ''willing''...''' He would be backed by the military and advised by me. There would be no parliament. No opposition. No radicals. No liberals. No thinkers. No immigrants. There would simply be the rulers and the ruled... and we could do '''''anything.'''''\\
'''Constantine''': You're talking about putting the ''thing'' that used to be ''UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper''

'''Marston''': ''Ah'', but Constantine... What has our royal family '''ever''' done... '''Except feed off the ''blood'' of the ''people?'''''

* AdventuresInComaland: in Hellblazer #100. It might have been AllJustADream, but this is left ambiguous; [[spoiler: while John is comatose in the hospital, did the First of the Fallen ''really'' spirit him away to have some fun watching John confront his damned father, or did John just dream the whole thing?]]

* ConspiracyKitchenSink: Constantine trolls a reporter by claiming that British royalty are in fact space reptilians who first mated with German royalty in the 1700s who killed Princess Diana so that they could retrieve the unholy fetus implanted inside her. A network of tunnels runs under Buckingham Palace and around the world, including Roswell (TheGreys are also reptilians). [[HeKnowsTooMuch He tops it all off by faking his own death in the pub restroom.]]



* GoodIsNotNice: Well, "good"... When a Crwoley wannabe turns one of John's exes into his SexSlave, then gets bored and forces her into prostitution before finally raping and sadistically murdering her, John has him [[spoiler:ingest acid and locked up naked inside the morgue drawer containing her mutilated body. And the refrigeration is turned off, so it's starting to run...]] Inverted when it comes to her ghost, as John arranges for her to meet another bitter, lonely ghost, and both are seen walking off together in the end.



* ImperfectRitual: ''Hellblazer'' 108 - "Day of Wine and Roses": John is hired to do some fertility magic to spice up an orgy. He fully intends to con his employer by doing a bogus ritual with the added bonus of gaining {{blackmail}} material on the rich participants. His secret "[[MagicalIncantation magical chant]]" is the list of ingredients off a packet of muesli. The ritual still manages to summon spirits called the Mendw that possess the participants and wreck havoc.

* WretchedHive: London is repeatedly shown to be populated with junkies and homeless people wallowing in their own filth, vapid socialites, and members of the British royal family.

* YourMindMakesItReal: A journalist was persuaded that a box containing the immortal aborted Antichrist had grafted itself to his chest, that it had pissed its evil into his veins, and caused him to murder people. When John graphically rips it from his chest, his wounds disapear, and the box turns into a cereal box with a hole containing a dead rat.

* AlternateContinuity: The John Constantine who's now showing up in the DCU in ''Justice League Dark'' is apparently the young thirty-something who first helped Swamp Thing come to terms with his identity, rather than the one in Vertigo's ''Hellblazer'' who's possibly pushing 60.

* AlternateContinuity: The John Constantine who's now showing up in the DCU in ''Justice League Dark'' is apparently the young thirty-something who first helped Swamp Thing come to terms with his identity, rather than the one in Vertigo's ''Hellblazer'' who's possibly pushing 60. The New52 book continuity also has a number of differences with the classic. In the traditonal Hellblazer, John cast roughly less than one spell per book, and those were typically low-level scrying or hypnotism. He used wits and deals instead of wands. New52 Constantine has some of the same characteristics, but while he still doesn't blast toe to toe in wizard duels, there are a lot more glowing lines and magic tricks spurting around.
