* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Diabolik has a in-universe franchise and relative fandom, generating these. HilarityEnsues every time it's brought to bear: only [[DeadpanSnarker Eva]] can tolerate her alternative interpretation.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the story ''Nel Tunnel della Pazzia'' (''Inside the Tunnel of Madness'') Elizabeth Gay claimed her hate for Diabolik was born not from Diabolik's driving her to madness but by him choosing Eva as accomplice and partner instead of herself. Her words become harsher after reading ''Nei Sotterranei di Clerville'' (''Inside Clerville's Underground''), that has a long flashback sequence of the times when Diabolik's true face was still unknown and Elizabeth his lover and UnwittingPawn: the sequence shows that Diabolik ''did'' consider her as a possible future partner and actually tested her, with her proving her abilities but accidentally betraying his trust, leading Diabolik to look somewhere else for possible accomplices.

Diabolik's teacher about this. * MemeticBadass: In Italy everyone knows he can take the looks of ''everyone'' thanks to [[LatexPerfection his masks]] (universally known in Italy as "Diabolik's masks"). ** {{Lampshaded}} by the two-parter "A Cursed Island"-"Escape from the Island", where we find out that the natives of the island of Bo-Tang (who provide him with the resin he needs to make his masks permanent) call him Ri-Mau, "The Man with Many Faces and Many Souls" and consider him an emissary of their god ''precisely because of his masks''.

** There is also Mr Logan: The [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO]] of a pharmaceutical industry, Logan purchased a SyntheticPlague and its vaccine. His ultimate plan was to release the first into the civilian population in order to wait for the panic and then 'discover' the vaccine, [[{{Greed}}} all in the name of money]]. Logan stands in stark contrast to [[VillainProtagonist Diabolik]] and his more honorable methods of theft. He is willing to kill countless civilians with his manufactured plague, just to line his pockets and achieve fame from it.

* FramingTheGuiltyParty: ** In the story ''The Sweet Death'', Diabolik framed two people for an attempted murder they committed and the murder he committed while masked as them. The kicker is, the murder victim ''asked him to do this'': when the two framed people, his wife and her lover, tried to kill him with an 'accident', they left him so crippled he was in perpetual pain and unable to do anything more than blink, so, when he accidentally encountered Diabolik, who was stealing some jewels from him, he ''[[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome blinked a request in Morse code to kill and avenge him]]'', and Diabolik decided to help by killing him and 'confessing' the attempted murder on camera while wearing the lover's mask and with Eva present masked as the wife. The story ends with Altea finding evidence they couldn't have committed the murder and destroying it, as [[IDidWhatIHadToDo she knew they had crippled the victim but couldn't prove it]].
