** Completely averted with Flash, who gladly accepts Bruce's proposal without even asking questions, mainly because he needs friends, and likely a fan of Batman.

* WhatMeasureIsANonSuper: Batman and Alfred seem to angst about how the world has so thoroughly changed to superpowered threats and beings that it makes their kind of crimefighting irrelevant. Alfred notes that he doesn't recognize this world. When [[spoiler:Superman is resurrected he rushes to Batman in fury. Batman tells Superman that he brought him back because the world needs him, and Superman replies, "[[ArmorPiercingQuestion Does it need you?]]" Later while healing from injuries, Diana looks at his wounds compassionately.]]
--> '''Diana''': You can't do this forever.
--> '''Bruce''': I can barely do it now.

* MetaCasting: Jason Momoa as Aquaman was not the most intuitive casting, but fans grew to love the choice because Aquaman is often portrayed as a BarbarianHero and Momoa has played largely just that. Even he admitted he was caught off guard by the offer, but realized the ingenious idea of casting someone like him because of his Pacific Island heritage, as their culture is filled with water gods. He also says in the one of the iTunes extras that he identified with Aquaman's FishOutOfWater identity crisis, himself being born in Hawaii and raised in Iowa, which are as different culturally as one could find.

** At the end of the movie, [[spoiler:Steppenwolf is being pounced by his own Parademons just before being summoned by a Boom Tube. Its not exactly clear what became of him, but he was presumably brought back to his homeworld so that ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} can punish him for his failure]].

* SmallRoleBigImpact: Superman's ''absence'' from the main story is a big part of the movie, and his eventual resurrection becomes a vital piece of the plot, as such despite limited on-screen time and interaction with the other characters the movie is still about him more than any individual member of the League.

* MuggingTheMonster: Batman repeatedly gets in the face of super-powered beings throughout the film as a RunningGag. He gloats to Aquaman about how he can talk to fish and gets a NeckLift in exchange from a superpowered Atlantean, then he goads Diana by pushing her buttons making her shove him back angrily to an installation, and [[spoiler:upon Superman's resurrection, his very appearance pushes Clark's buttons since he remembers him trying to kill him in the last film, and their first interaction where Bruce issues a death threat to the Kryptonian ("do you bleed?"), and gets casually shoved to the ground when Lois arrives, as Bruce planned]]. This is PlayedForLaughs for most of the film and intended to take Bruce down a peg from his last film but [[spoiler:it gets played for drama when Diana sees how injured Bruce was from Superman casually manhandling him, and by implication from her earlier in the film, noting that given his advanced age, he can barely keep up with the rest of the team]].

* BatmanGrabsAGun: When the foe he faces gives even his superhuman allies trouble, you're darn right he does. [[spoiler:Bats acquires a Parademon blaster gun in the final fight and keeps shooting until its power cell is dead. Previously, he lays down the lead on Steppenwolf's horde of mooks with vehicle-mounted gunnery in the Nightcrawler and the Batmobile.]]

** [[spoiler:Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Cyborg nearly drown in the flooding tunnels following Steppenwolf's escape. Then Aquaman comes in and holds the flood with his trident's power long enough for everyone to get into the Nightcrawler and ascent to safety.]]

* MoreDakka: At least two more guns have been added to the Batmobile. It is undoubtedly useful against the Parademon invasion. Taken UpToEleven with the [[SpiderTank Night Crawler]], which is basically just a cockpit with legs and lots of guns.

* SpiderTank: One of the Nightcrawler's modes. One has to wonder what Creator/KevinSmith must think of the presence of a Giant Mechanical Spider in a Superman movie, to say nothing of his friend Creator/BenAffleck being the one piloting it.

* TankGoodness: A new Batman vehicle called the Nightcrawler features prominently, with [[SpiderTank modular legs]] allowing it more versatile terrain climbing. Apparently it was based on a prototype designed by Thomas Wayne.

* MacGuffin: The humans, Amazons, and Atlanteans each have a [[ComicBook/NewGods Mother Box from a conflict with Apokalips]] long ago. They possess a multitude of mystical abilities, including the creation of portals connecting Earth and Apokolips. One was glimpsed briefly in ''Batman v Superman'', as it is tied in with the origin of ComicBook/{{Cyborg}}, and Etta Candy, Sameer, Chief and Charlie went on a mission to obtain it after the end of World War I in the home video post-credits scene of ''Wonder Woman''. Representations of three of them were shown to Lex Luthor when he was communicating with Steppenwolf before he was captured by Federal forces in the Doomsday aftermath. The conflict of the movie involves Steppenwolf coming back to Earth looking for them.
