* EldritchLocation: As described above, primordial chaos is an extremely strane place where the laws of physics do not apply. But Hell qualifies as well, since it has three gates and somehow also stretches out at the edges into an infinite landscape of snow.

* FameThroughInfamy: Michael shows Adam a vision of a descendent of his who will form an empire in the hopes of making his name famous, regardless of whether he be famous for good or evil. Michael goes out of his way to avoid saying his name, but context makes it clear that the descendent is Nimrod, the character who tried to build the Tower of Babel in the Literature/BookOfGenesis.

Notably focusing largely on {{Satan}}, ''Paradise Lost'' is a retelling of the third chapter of [[Literature/BookOfGenesis Genesis]] in the form of an epic poem with the addition of flashbacks to War between Satan and the angels, clear references to [[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} the Son of God]], and visions provided by the ArchangelMichael that show Adam what happens in later parts of Literature/TheBible. In epic theory (and yes, such a thing exists), ''Paradise Lost'' is the final epic, as it has elements of everything from ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' up through ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' and ''Literature/TheFaerieQueene''.

* FasterThanLight: The blow Abdiel land to begin the battle in Heaven is said to be faster than sight, meaning that Abdiel moved his sword more quickly than the light the moved from his sword to the eyes of those around him. A little implicit, but this certainly paints the angels at war as exeding the speed of light.
* FlashStep: Abdiel's first strike that no one could see his sword be lifted up before it struck at Satan's helmet with swiftness greater than thought.

* GoodWingsEvilWings: In the first twenty lines, God is described as "with mighty wings outspread dove-like" as an immediate sign of his innocence. From there, comparison of angelic and divine wings to eagles and pure white birds are common to indicate regality and goodness. In contrast, the demons have their wings compared to those of [[BeeAfraid swarming bees]] and described as RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver.

* BattleAura: Listen, Jesus is a swell guy, but just know he's going to beat the piss out of you as soon as he starts effusing "smoak and bickering flame, and sparkles dire." Don't believe me ask Satan, or don't, he's still blushes when you mention he jumped out of Heaven while pissing his wings.

* ShedArmorGainSpeed: The angels of God adapt to the satanic invention of artillery by throwing away their swords, spears, and sheilds to allow them the speed to zip past enemy cannon volleys and surprise them. To further the anti-weapons point, the armor the demons wear prevents them from dodging the swift angels' surprise attack.
