** ''[[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueInternational Justice League: Generation Lost]]'', which had a major subplot having to do with the events of ''Kingdom Come'', actually ''did'' use it. In a reversal of this, Rorschach shows up twice in the bar scene... at one point talking to the character he's an {{Expy}} of, The Question.

** The full quote is ''"Siva ulo! Nandiyan na ang siva ulo! Papatayin niya tayo ulo!"'' literally translates to "Damaged Head! (''i.e. "Insane" but it should be "sira" instead of "siva" for the term "damaged"; and "sira" (damaged) and "ulo" (head) should be a single compound word'')There is already the damaged head! He's going to kill us! Heads!" The authorial intent apparently is closer to "There is (or 'here comes') (the face of) death! He has death in his head (or "on his mind")!", but that requires ''much more longer'' sentences for a correct translation.

** [[spoiler: TheVillagePeople]]Music/VillagePeople]]



** Several background characters are based on bands and musicians, including Music/{{Bjork}}, Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheMonkees, Music/TheVillagePeople, and King Marvel is visually very similar to an older Music/ElvisPresley. This is a recursive ShoutOut -- Elvis based his famous stage costume on Captain Marvel, Jr., his favorite superhero.

* BadassGrandpa: Batman is so old and battered he needs machines to help him walk, but he's still as sharp as ever, able to execute a classic BatmanGambit and then has the guts to punch Captain Marvel.[[spoiler: Who is really Billy Batson, but still.]] It's stated that Batman in this future basically abandoned the Bruce Wayne "personality" altogether. And Aquaman. Even ''Superman'' treats him with kid gloves.

** After Norman gives his speech during the climax, The Spectre removes him from the scene, leaving confused Superman, and frustrating Norman, who wanted to talk to him more. Norman muses that The Spectre had a better sense of drama than Norman did.

* LegacyCharacter: Again, all over the place. Its setting is helpful in allowing such characters to see a lot of use. They really come to the fore in the sequel, though.

* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: In the {{Novelization}}, Spectre is baffled by Superman and Wonder Woman's relationship. Norman explains that theirs is a relationship of maturity: he needs an independent woman (like ComicBook/LoisLane was), or he needs no one else, and she needs a strong man, or she needs no one else. Spectre notes that Norman's experience as a minister is exactly what he lacks, having been separated so long from his mortal life, and no longer can comprehend human relationships. At the end, Norman is teaching Spectre to be Jim Corrigan again.

* WhenHeSmiles: After the events are over, in the {{Novelization}}, the President asks Superman if he's okay, because he hasn't smiled, and the Superman everyone loved always had a warm smile. Superman tells her he will again, but not now. In the comic and the Novelization, after Wonder Woman gives him a pair a glasses "to see a little clearer", he finally gives a very Superman-like smile as he pulls a gigantic plow in Kansas, ending the main story.
