* LargeHam: Shade, normally a quiet CombatPragmatist, apparently practiced in a mirror when planning to go against Flash or Starman in the Golden Age to get the voice and [[MilkingTheGiantCow additional gestures]] right.

* [[LetsYouAndHimFight Let's You and Him Fight]]: In this case, against [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]]. Needless to say, Jack is horrendously overmatched, even after the fight forces him to tap into some of his staff's more obscure powers that he had never bothered with before.

* EmotionEater: Bliss is an incubus who feeds on suffering, and especially likes the flavor of the suffering of "special people" (circus freaks).

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Etrigan appears to Ted Knight in 1944, and when the scientist in Ted refuses to believe he's a demon, Etrigan tells him of the hell he'll suffer when his involvement with the Manhattan Project bears fruition. The revelation might have compounded Ted's guilt and helped break him.

** Jack and [[spoiler: his brother David, ripped from time before his death, by Doctor Fate]] are sent back to the year 1951 to help protect Opal City at a time when Ted Knight was still suffering from CreatorBreakdown after playing an important role in the development of the atomic bomb.
