** Superman regrets his decision to become a mortal after learning that General Zod has effortlessly conquered the world:
-->'''Clark Kent''': I have to go back.
-->'''Lois Lane''': You can't go back, there's no way now.
-->'''Clark Kent''': I have to. I've gotta try dammit, I've got to try something. Anything!
-->'''Lois Lane''': It's not your fault. You didn't know this was going to happen.
-->'''Clark Kent''': They knew. They tried to tell me. But, I didn't listen.

* ChekhovsGun: The molecular chamber which Superman uses to become mortal in order to fall in love with Lois, plays a crucial part in the climax when he's forced to enter it again after Luthor lets the cat out of the bag. [[spoiler:Fortunately, Superman manages to turn the tables on Zod and his mooks.]]

* KansasCityShuffle: Superman utilizes a heroic one in attempting to lure Zod and his mooks into the molecule chamber. Once Luthor spills the beans, he takes over, thinking he can operate the molecule chamber with the crystal, when Superman is apparently the only one who knows how to use the Kryptonian device, and this is the first any of the villains have heard about this.
-->'''Superman''': Try and get them all into this molecule chamber. It takes away their powers, see... and turns them into ordinary human beings. Now if you could... Shh, shh!
-->'''Lex Luthor''': General, don't go in there. It's a trap.
-->'''Superman''': Luthor, you poisonous snake!
-->'''Lex Luthor''': That's a molecule chamber. It makes people like you into people like me.
** Superman goes off into a chamber, where unbeknownst to the criminals, he is shielded from the radiation, and Zod believes he has the advantage over Superman, until the Man of Steel crushes a powerless Zod's hand, and the Kryptonian criminals each fall into the icy chasm below. The main twist was that Superman would pretend to be weakened inside the chamber, when he was actually shielded from the red solar rays which occurred outside of the chamber.
-->'''Lex Luthor''': He switched it, he did it to them! I mean, the lights were on out here... while he was safe in there!
-->[Superman nods and gives Luthor an OK sign]

-->'''Clark Kent:''' [To Lois] Maybe you ought to hire a bodyguard.
-->'''Lois:''' I don't want one. I want the man I fell in love with.
-->'''Clark:''' I know, Lois. I wish he were here.

** Coca-Cola and KFC each appear twice. When Superman (after saving a boy from falling down a waterfall) goes behind a hot dog stand to change into Clark Kent, the stand is serving Coke products; when Superman and Zod fight in Metroville, Superman is thrown through a neon Coke sign. Meanwhile, when Superman crashes into a car windshield, the couple in the car have KFC boxes on the dashboard; then, as the two fight through the city, it cuts to another couple enjoying KFC.
