* BadassNormal: Many of Spawn's allies, especially NYPD detectives Sam Burke and Twitch Williams. These ordinary detectives takes on some of the weirdest cases and dukes it out with superhumans such as cyborg assassins, genetically-enhanced hitmen, and even vampires. Although they don't have superpowers, they have their own skills and training to compensate. Sam Burke's large fatty built allows him to fight the superhuman Udaku and vampires up close and personal, while Twitch William's marksmanship and knowledge of trigonometry allowed him to defeat the cyborg bulletproof killer Overt-Kill by shooting a bullet through his ear canal.

* CosmicChessGame: Much of the story of the series is based on a cosmic Cold War between God with the forces of Heaven and Satan with the forces of Hell to obtain ownership over human souls to serve in the eventual full scale war of Armageddon between Heaven and Hell that will destroy the world. Good or bad deeds have no weight when it comes to choosing which souls fight for Heaven or Hell since each side alternative picks a soul in a 50-50 split (first heaven, then hell) so neither sides gets an advantage. Quality of the souls in terms of who is better at war and can fight with more savagery is the deciding factor of victory that tips the scales which is why the souls of individuals such as Genghis Khan, Atilla the Hun, and Jack the Ripper were heavily fought over. Spawn himself was seen as the greatest of such souls due to his love of killing and vicious combat skills, which is why Hell made him a Hellspawn in an attempt to gain ownership over him.

* GodAndSatanAreBothJerks: Oh yeah. Even their creator, The Mother of Existence, is disappointed with their petty rivalry since both of them are absolute monsters. Even when they're reincarnated as humans, forgetting their true memories, they show their true colors by violently attacking each other, torturing Wanda's hamster, trying to kill their mother Wanda, and otherwise causing all manner of havoc. Arguably averted given the nature of the Mother of Existence who is pretty much an over deity who is actively trying to help humanity, but even MOM refused to help stop Armageddon due to the event needing to happen according to rules that MOM created.

** After the retcon removing MOM from the continuity, God is not as much of a jerk as Satan, persuading Al Simmons to come back to life to save his wife's soul, providing him with a sword capable of permanently killing demons, and sending the Archangel Michel to help him out.



** ''Spawn: Resurrection'' is a ContinuityReboot of sorts that undoes most of what went on between Al defeating Malebolgia and his suicide: God is now good, the arcs involving the Man of Miracles never happened, and Al Simmons had a son who was stillborn (later revealed to be his humanity) rather than a daughter he aborted himself. Al being a wife beater probably counts too, considering it hadn't even been hinted at early on. It just got shoved into continuity at some point.
