** When the Swamp Thing manages to enter Brujera's cave, they seem pretty cofident that they can take him, since they are on their home turf. The problem was however [[IdiotBall that said cave was]] '''[[IdiotBall in the middle of a rain forest]]''', and [[GreenThumb Swampy]] proceeds to instantly butcher the lot of them. Actually, the mystics had protected their underground cave to where Swamp Thing couldn't get in as Constantine planned... but [[spoiler:the traitor [[MeaningfulName Judith]] had accidentally brought in a rainforest flower that Swamp Thing ''could'' possess]].
** Also applies to the escaped convict in issue 10, who sees Swamp Thing coming when he's caught attempting to strangle an old black woman so he can steal her soup, and immediately thinks he can take him. Swamp Thing is over seven feet tall, weighs 547 lbs, and it is all "muscle."

* IntercontinuityCrossover: It's never directly stated, but there are enough hints to figure out that [[spoiler:Matthew the raven from ComicBook/TheSandman]] was [[spoiler:Matthew Cable]] before he died. Gaiman owes a lot to Moore in getting his career started; there are several nods in ''Sandman'' to Moore's work in the DCU. This was confirmed by Gaiman in an interview, and later made explicit in an arc of ''The Dreaming''. Swamp Thing also encounters quite a few well-established DC characters, including Franchise/{{Superman}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}, ComicBook/{{Etrigan}}, ComicBook/TheSpectre, ComicBook/{{Deadman}} and ComicBook/AdamStrange.

** Possibly justified in that he's evil - i.e., Hell's rightful prey - while she's an innocent. Even so, she's pretty traumatized.



* DarkIsNotEvil: The Rot is the elemental force of Death and Decay, in opposition to The Red (the collective life force of animal life) and The Green (the collective life force of plant life). It's never going to win any popularity contests, but its avatars are ''not'' normally evil. They detest the use that Anton Arcane has put the Rot to, and they assist in taking him down at the first opportunity.
