* TheAntiChrist: Well, there are the First Beast, who calls upon humanity to falsely worship himself, and the Second Beast, the false prophet who promotes the First Beast, but no one expressly called the Antichrist (that term's actually from the first and second epistles of John, and refers to anti-christs ''plural'', i.e. whoever is "against Christ").

* LightIsGood: The 19th chapter sees Christ riding a blindingly white horse, one that represents the purity and goodness of its rider. This use of white as goodness is also applied to the first Horsemen of the Apocalypse, who rides a white horse, wears a crown befitting the King of Kings, and goes all over the Earth, like how Christ commanded his Apostles to spread news of his Resurrection.

Although with the first Horseman, it may be a case of LightIsNotGood, as Bible students have interpreted his appearance as that of TheAntichrist.

* SinisterMinister: Jesus condemns the church of Thyatira in one of His seven letters to the seven churches for allowing "that woman Jezebel" (a CallBack to Queen Jezebel from the Books of Kings) to call herself a prophetess, misleading His servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols. As punishment, Jesus would cast this woman into a sicked, and those that commit fornication with her into "great tribulation" unless they repent of their deeds, and on top of that would [[WouldHurtAChild kill her children]] so that others would know that He is the One who searches hearts and minds and will repay everyone according to their deeds.

* BigBad: The book describes a giant, red, seven-headed dragon who seeks to imitate the authority of God by wearing crowns on his head and is behind the army of fallen angels and the two Beasts who come to deceive the Earth. This seems despicable enough, but as John describes the dragon's war against ArchangelMichael, he begins listing the dragon's other identities as the serpent who deceived Adam and Eve into falling in the Literature/BookOfGenesis, the accuser who tortured a good man in the Literature/BookOfJob, and the Devil who reveled in tempting Christ and possessing Judas in Literature/TheFourGospels. From War in Heaven to the War of Armageddon, it turns out Satan has been the greatest force of evil all along.
