* SecretCircleOfSecrets: Nearly other person around Damien seems to be a member of a [[ReligionOfEvil Satan-worshiping cult]] who are loyal to the death and do the dirty work of murdering those could threaten Damien when the accidents don't.

After the first three films were novelized, two non-canon book sequels were written by Gordon [=McGill=] (''Omen IV: Armageddon 2000'' and ''Omen V: The Abomination'') chronicling the exploits of Damien's son and his attempts to cause the end of the world through interfering with the international peace process. There were a number of copycat films such as the Italian-made Kirk Douglas movie ''Film/{{Holocaust 2000}}''.

* DrivenToSuicide: In the first film, the famous "It's all for you!" scene where a maid hangs herself. In the third film, an ambassador is spellbound to kill himself with a gun so Damien can take his place.



** Well outside of throwing a temper tantrum when he comes near a church, and knocking his mother off the stairs (which may or may not have been a accident) it's debatable on this in the first film.

* GreaterScopeVillain: Satan himself. He is never shown, but his influence grooms Damien to become the ultimate evil as well as dissuade anybody that knows too much.



* NothingIsScarier: The build up to the deaths in thoughout the original trilogy were pretty intense, the deaths themselves were terrible ways to go for the most part but almost a relief when they come. The remake has elements of this too. It could be argued that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwgSX7a9yDs this teaser]] for the remake is infinitely more terrifying than the movie itself.

* ReligiousHorrorReligiousHorror: It's a given since the Antichrist is the main antagonist.



* SickbedSlaying: [[spoiler: Katherine Thorn]] in the first film and its remake. The way it's done is different in the remake, though.

* SwitchedAtBirth



* OmnicidalManiac: Unlike his father who intended to rule the Earth, Damian Jr just wants to see it burn.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Damian Thorn Jr looks just like a younger version of his father. Not surprising, as Junior is heavily implied to be Damian's reincarnation. He's kept in hiding for this reason.
