* WickedCultured: In the cartoon the evil henchmen usually derisively called Swamp Thing "muck man". Arcane tended to go for the more erudite "muck-encrusted mockery of a man".

Besides the comic book series the character has appeared in a few other iterations such as a [[Film/SwampThing live action film]] and its [[Film/TheReturnOfSwampThing sequel]], a live-action TV series and a short-lived AnimatedAdaptation that had its own toy line.

* ChosenConceptionPartner: [[Comicbook/{{Hellblazer}} John Constantine]] lets has Swamp Thing possess his body so that a child can be conceived with Thing's wife.wife. Swampy ''did not'' ask permission first, but John doesn't take it too hard as he'd actually intended to propose it to Swampy before his consciousness was simply forced out of his body.

* OhCrap: Usually the expression most villains developed after they realized they angered the Swamp Thing.
** In the first ever issue, the main thug responsible for killing Alec Holland tries to shoot Swamp Thing, not realizing he's ImmuneToBullets. "Die! (BLAM) (Swamp Thing approaches) Why won't you DIE! (BLAM BLAM) (Swamp Thing is face-to-face with him) DIE! (Click) Oh...my...God..."

* AbortedArc: Tends to happen when there is a change of writers or creative team.
** Right before LenWein left the Swamp Thing had discovered something very important about the swamp where he was born and the biorestorative that he's worked on. The reader is never told what it was (though it somehow related to the chemicals that had been inadvertently dumped into the swamp causing wildlife to mutate), and it's never mentioned again.
** AlanMoore completely ignored the plot of our heroes trying to get to Washington D.C. to confront the people that have been trying to kill them. Liz and Dennis suddenly decide to go hide in Florida, not even caring what happens to their friends. Abby and Matt go home. The Swamp Thing is the only one who ends up confronting Sunderland, and that happens completely by accident!


Added DiffLines:

* PlotHole: An important part of Alan Moore's changes to the origin of the character depends on the fact that Alec Holland's bio-restorative doesn't work on animal cells, only plant ones. However when Swamp Thing returns to the swamp where he is born for the first time, he finds it's filled with creatures that have been mutated by the bio-restorative that had been dumped into the swamp by the explosion. (see AbortedArc).
