* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Hawkeye's daughter becomes the new King Pin, and he later gets killled when his delivery turns out to be a sting. And Logan's family have been killed by the Hulk Gang]], but on a positive note the Hulk Gang and Red Skull are dead, and Wolverine is forming an Avengers team. If Old Man Logan does become the Hooded Man that appears in a ComicBook/FantasticFour miniseries (as is heavily implied), then the future looks even better.
* BlindWeaponmaster: You would think that Hawkeye being blind now would effect his ability to shoot arrows. You'd be wrong.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Lady Deathstrike falls victim to this in issue 7. The last time she appeared in the books was in ''[[Comicbook/DeathOfWolverine The Logan Legacy]]'' and its spinoff, ''Comicbook/{{Wolverines}}''. In the former she made her peace with Logan, and even undertook a mission in his name to recover the Honor Blade of Clan Yashida after it was stolen by Yakuza. In the latter she entered into a relationship with Shogun, grew conflicted over the nature of her feelings for his two personalities, and began demonstrating actual complexity. However when she resurfaces in ''Old Man Logan'', all of that development was discarded and Deathstrike reverted to a vicious psychopath hunting Logan down merely because he ''existed''.

** Logan's main goal.
** While Logan eventually works out that this isn't the past he remembers, he's still set on making sure his future never comes to fruition. One of the first things on his list? Killing the Hulk, believing that it's Bruce Banner when the Hulk at the time is Amadeus Cho.
* ShaggyDogStory: The first arc in general. Logan sets out to kill the villains who destroyed his world, and he specifically targets Banner, Mysterio, and Red Skull. However we already know Logan is FailureIsTheOnlyOption by other All-New All-Different books, so essentially nothing he does in the first arc matters.

* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Storm implies she still has feelings for Logan, but he doesn't seem to feel the same. In his timeline, which is basically the same as regular Logan's until a big after Civil War, he and Storm were never a couple.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: Because ''Old Man Logan'' is set immediately after ''Secret Wars'', but the rest of All-New All-Different is set eight monts later, that Logan's attempts to hunt down [[Comicbook/TheIncredibleHulk Bruce Banner]], Mysterio, and Comicbook/RedSkull in the first arc will fail was spoiled before ''Old Man Logan's'' first issue was even released. Logan is ultimately told this in issue #4 when Old Man Steve Rogers shows Logan the grave of the mainstream Wolverine and tells him that this isn't his future.
