* TheAntiChrist: Well, there are the First Beast [[note]]The most likely to being one. The other possible AntiChrist in the book is the White HorsemenOfTheApocalypse.[[/note]] and the Second Beast,[[note]]The False Prophet who promotes the First Beast.[[/note]] but no one expressly called the Antichrist (that's actually from [[Literature/TheFourGospels the Gospel of John]], and refers to anti-christs ''plural'', i.e. whoever is "against Christ").

* TheDragon: [[InvertedTrope Inverted:]] The Dragon in Revelation ''is'' the BigBad. Some sects (and [[ShinMegamiTensei some videogames that base their version of Satan on such beliefs]]) have Satan as God's agent.

* ColonyDrop: Wormwood among other stars during Revelation.



* TheDragon: [[InvertedTrope Inverted:]] The Dragon in Revelation ''is'' the BigBad. Some sects (and [[ShinMegamiTensei some videogames that base their version of Satan on such beliefs]]) have Satan as God's agent.



* FireAndBrimstoneHell: Mostly according to John the Revelator. The Biblical basis for belief in such a hell is extremely shaky, at best. Note that it differs from the popular depiction as the demons are said to be tortured alongside the people in there, not as being the torturers.



* SignsOfTheEndTimes: One of the original {{Trope Maker}}s.



* TheStarsAreGoingOut: In the Apocalypse of John, when the stars (or rather, ''shooting'' stars) fall from sky and the [[WeirdMoon moon turns blood red]].



* TheStarsAreGoingOut: A third of them go out at once, to start with. [[FromBadToWorse This is just the start]].
* SignsOfTheEndTimes: One of the original {{Trope Maker}}s.

* BlackMarketProduce: Revelation has this to say about the manifestation of Famine; in context, these are astronomical prices expected for staple foodstuffs equivalent to a week's wages for the basics of life and imply both shortages and a lot of black-marketeering going on.
-->And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. (Rev.6:6)

* TheVamp: The "woman Jezebel" who was mentioned as a prophetess by Jesus in Revelation chapter 2 in his letter to the church of Thyatira, who was misleading His servants into committing sexual immorality and eating things sacrificed to idols. As punishment, she would suffer in a bed, and Jesus would promise the same things to her followers unless they repent.
