* CanonForeigner: The tie-in action figure line often had free reign to create characters meant to be action figures that never appeared in the fiction. This was rather common until the focus shifted to doing scene-specific statues, giving us toys such as Interlink 6, Top Gun & Bottom Line and a slew of other characters.

** Jessica Priest went from the movie to the comics, in part due to rights issues with Chapel
** Cy-Gor was created for the toy line, but proved popular enough to become part of the comics.

* {{Cuckold}}: Al Simmons finds out that his wife has remarried his best friend, had two children with him, and is much happier with him than she ever was with Al. Potentially a played with trope, considering she remarried because Al was DEAD.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The action figure packages referred to Hell as "The Draklands", for obvious marketing reasons.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: Spawn's morality is questionable, but clearly better than Hell. WordOfGod says that heaven was made intentionally ambiguous. Their final agenda is good, but they recognize that to stand up to the forces of hell they have to recruit people capable of being just as ruthless. In the audio commentary of the TV show Todd [=McFarlane=] compared the ideal heaven and hell going to war as consisting of Atilla the Hun fighting church bingo ladies. The comic, paralleling this, confirmed that heaven had successfully recruited Atilla at some point (mostly to keep Hell from getting him).

Unsure of his past life and having trouble with his costume changing and becoming wild all the time, Spawn starts to interact with former cops [[ThoseTwoGuys Sam and Twitch]], and finds out Mammon sent [[CatchphraseSpoutingDuo Ab and Zab]] to release a soul-destroying demon that makes its enemies DeaderThanDead. After turning it into SealedEvilInACan, Spawn {{handwave}}s his way back to Hell and, with the help of Angela, kills Malebolgia.
