-->“I hope you appreciate, Kal-El, that everything that happens from this point is on your head. The skies will rain fire, the oceans will boil, the streets will run red with the blood of billions. Only then, after your last pitiful hope is extinguished, will I end your life.” ** There's a reason that BATMAN, the living ThouShaltNotKill epitome, tried to kill him during Final Crisis.

Humans were forced to do backbreaking labor while worshiping him as he tortured them. If any of his minions ever [[YouHaveFailedMe failed him]] once, he would give them [[ATasteOfTheLash 50 lashes]]. Fail him a second time, and he would have them banished to a place so horrifying that [[YouDoNotWantToKnow no one would speak of it]], a place where he banished [[AbusiveParents his son Kallibak]]. It's also revealed that when ComicBook/Vanda Savage managed to kill a bunch of superheroes for him, Darkseid [[UngratefulBastard vaporized him]] because he wanted the heroes brought to him alive so he could [[ColdBloodedTorture torture them]] first.

** Born Prince Uxas, he is one of the ComicBook/NewGods, is the ultimate GodOfEvil in the DC Universe, and is the TropeCodifier for DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans. As EvilOverlord of [[{{Mordor}} Apokolips]], Darkseid subjects its denizens to hellish conditions with the overwhelming majority of the population ill-treated slaves. His Elite fare no better as Darkseid is [[BadBoss all too willing to subject them to hideous tortures or obliteration]] should [[YouHaveFailedMe they fail him]]. Darkseid detests all that is good in the universe and seeks to extend his influence everywhere he can. While he once loved someone, his [[EvilMatriarch mother]], [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Heggra]], wanting to make him evil killed Suli, [[StartOfDarkness helping turn Darkseid]] into the GalacticConqueror we know him as (but not before [[GoneHorriblyRight he had Heggra poisoned]]). During ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', Darkseid is dying, and so wants to [[OmnicidalManiac destroy the multiverse and all life in it]] as [[TakingYouWithMe a final gesture]]. He [[OffingTheOffspring kills his son]] Orion to gain dominion over Earth. Once there, he enslaved the minds of everyone he could touch, turning them into savage parodies of themselves, intending to as he said "murder their souls and take them to hell without end." His ultimate motive is to use the Anti-Life Equation to [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill Rob everybody of free will]] and turn them all into mindless zombies who [[AGodAmI worship him as a god]] while he tortures them eternally, [[ForTheEvulz all for fun]]. Just as bloodthirsty and monstrous as any of those who serve him, Darkseid combines [[FauxAffablyEvil urbane sophistication, limitless cruelty and insatiable drive for power]], and is the one single villain that [[TheDreaded all the heroes despise and fear]].

** In WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries, he's the EvilOverlord of Apokolips and the UltimateEvil of the DCAnimatedUniverse, turned his home planet into a hellhole and seeks to do the same with Earth. He is a being utterly incapable of love or empathy for anyone. He handed over his adopted son, Scott Free, to be tortured and brainwashed by Granny Goodness, treated his loyal son, Kalibak, [[AbusiveParents like garbage]], and attempted to outright [[OffingTheOffspring kill his other son, Orion]] while joking about it. Darkseid is also fond of conducting ColdBloodedTorture and [[YouHaveFailedMe killing minions for failing him]], or even for [[DisproportionateRetribution questioning him]]. Over the course of ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'', Darkseid tried to conquer earth no less than three times. The first time he’s defeated he compensated by personally murdering [[spoiler:Dan Turpin]] just to cause Superman pain. The second time, he brainwashed Superman into leading Darkseid’s armies against his adopted world, turning the Man of Steel into a pariah for years. His third and final attempt stems not for a desire for power, but solely to make Superman suffer. There’s a reason why Darkseid is one of the only villains [[TheCape Superman]] outright tries to kill.

*** To top it off in that appearance? ''He succeeds''. And even when Superman goes to Apokolips and pummels Darkseid within an inch of his life, the defenseless Darkseid just calmly has his loyal followers carry him to safety. His last words to Superman sum it up best: -->"I am many things Kal-El. But here ''[[BadassBoast I AM GOD]]''"
