* GreaterScopeVillain: Lucifer is busy ruling Hell during the events of the film, and is of course mentioned as having led a rebellion in Heaven; but he isn't behind this plot, as Bartleby and Loki's plan would wipe him out of existence too, so when Rufus brings him up Metatron dismisses him as a candidate. Azrael was actually the BigBad, and even after he's defeated Lucifer's still down there.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Subverted in that Azrael is smart enough to not tell the heroes his plan before it completes, but not quite savvy enough to [[OhCrap realize]] that he shouldn't [[EvilGloating brag about this before killing them all]] or allow someone to take a [[HitMeDammit free swing at him]].
-->'''Serendipity:''' How? That's the only thing I couldn't figure out.
-->'''Azrael:''' Oh no, I've seen way too many [[Film/JamesBond Bond movies]] to know that you never reveal all the details of your plan, no matter how close you may think you are to winning.

* PsychopathicManchild: spoiler: Azrael, whose plan is one big SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum because of a "disagreement" with God. Serendipity even calls him a child.

Added DiffLines:

* TheMeaningOfLife: Bethany asks the question when she meets God at the end. God responds by tweaking her nose. This can be interpreted as either a polite snub or an answer to the effect that the point of life is to be silly and enjoy yourself. Bear in mind that God's voice would cause any mortal's head to explode, so there's a limited range of responses in this case.
