* BaseBreaker: It's hard to write a Darkseid defeat plausibly. Expect his fans to call any defeat as bad writing.

** In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}, who later appeared in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and was the [[BigBad top threat of the entire DCAU]], is the EvilOverlord of the wasteland planet Apokolips, and ultimately desired total dominion over all life in the universe. To achieve this end, he forever seeks the cosmic power of the Anti-Life Equation to use as the ultimate weapon. Incapable of love or empathy, [[AbusiveParents he abused his loyal son Kalibak]], handed over his adopted son Scott Free to be tortured and brainwashed by [[EvilOldFolks Granny Goodness]], and attempted to [[OffingTheOffspring murder his other son]], Orion, for opposing him. His [[BadBoss servants are likewise subjected to torture or death should they fail him]], or even question him. Setting his sights on conquering Earth, Darkseid launched a full-scale invasion on the planet, only relenting when the planet was declared off-limits by Apokolips's sister planet, New Genesis. To compensate, Darkseid murdered [[spoiler:Dan Turpin]] solely [[EvilIsPetty to spite Superman]]. He would make numerous more attempts to conquer or annihilate the planet, including attempting to destroy it with an asteroid and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]] Superman into leading an attack on his adopted world, turning the Man of Steel into a pariah for years. He later attempted to use Brainiac's programming to collect the Anti-Life Equation and bend the universe to his will, leading to his death in a battle with Superman. [[BackFromTheDead Upon his resurrection]], Darkseid immediately launched another invasion on Earth, not out of a desire for power, but solely to make Superman suffer. Ruthless and tyrannical, Darkseid is Superman's greatest enemy, and [[ThouShaltNotKill one of the few villains]] he has [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness outright tried to kill]].

** In ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', he's the EvilOverlord of Apokolips and the UltimateEvil of the [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} DC Animated Universe]], 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/JusticeLeague Unlimited'', 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.

* AwesomeEgo: Darkseid is very arrogant, and looks all the more {{Badass}} for it.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Darkseid is the most popular of the New Gods and now is one of the best villains of the DC Universe.

* BoringInvincibleVillain: Problem with the character is that its either Badass Decay or this trope, more commonly the latter. Even when written right, Darkseid is so powerful that most things cant even phase him, much less beat him. Read the Earth-2 series for an example of this trope in full force.

* EvilIsCool: He was easily the most popular character from Creator/JackKirby's ''ComicBook/NewGods'' metaseries, and he went on to become one of DC's most popular villains afterwards. Not that this is saying much since the only New Gods who weren't resigned to comic book obscurity where him, Orion, Highfather and arguably Lightray.
