* CantHaveSexEver: It is stated that if Jackie ever conceives a child, he will die, making each and every one of his sexual encounters after he becomes the Darkness a game of RussianRoulette; even non-vaginal sex is an incredible risk as it's repeatedly stated that the Darkness is carried in his ''sperm'' meaning if one errant spurt could still kill him, a vasectomy would be quickly nullified by his enhanced healing, it's entirely possible that his blasted demon sperm could regenerate a woman with tubal ligation...

* CantHaveSexEver: Played straight and subverted.
At first it is stated that if Jackie ever conceives a child, he will die, making each and every one of his sexual encounters after he becomes the Darkness a game of RussianRoulette; even non-vaginal sex is an incredible risk as it's repeatedly stated that the Darkness is carried in his ''sperm'', a vasectomy would be quickly nullified by his enhanced healing, it's entirely possible that his blasted demon sperm could regenerate a woman with tubal ligation...

* BigNo: When Jackie learns about the whole [[CelibateHero celibacy clause]]. Called into question somewhat when it turns out he can make his own fun. Doubles as FridgeLogic when it never occurs to Jackie to get a vasectomy (self-healing may nullify this option) or date women who are incapable of giving birth. But he never envisaged that Jackie just can't forget vaginal intercourse and have other sexual practices.

** At first it is stated that if Jackie has any form of sex, with a mortal, he will die. Later it changed so that he will only die if it results in conception, still he refused Wenders anyway. In others he will not die until the baby is born, evidenced in that his grandfather tried to kill his grandmother to prevent his own death. Meaning he was alive after having sex.
