* CrowningMomentofFunny: ''Final Crisis: Requiem'' shows the Injustice Gang being violently ambushed by the Justice League. While Lex, Ocean Master and a few others are getting massacred by their respective nemeses, Batman and Talia just make out. [[spoiler: It's all a hallucination, which really shows where Talia's mind is.]]

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: "Come closer, I need to eat you ''raw''! SLLUUBBBRR."
** Apparently even DC thought so since they replaced this with "Where Mandrakk waits for you" in the collected edition.

Added DiffLines:

** Mandrakk crosses the Horizon when he murders his ex-wife, Zillo Valla. Even he's shocked by what he just did, showcasing the last bit of humanity left in the cosmic destroyer.
** For all Darkseid steals the show in the story, it's easy to forget that the one who actually distributes the Anti-Life Equation to the globe is his scientist, Mr. Mokkari, which he does while sporting a calm smile.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: One of the few things from ''Countdown'' that Morrison grudgingly acknowledged was Mary Marvel's FaceHeelTurn, though rather than voluntary, as it was depicted in that series, Morrison reveals that it was due to the spirit of Desaad, Darkseid's TortureTechnician and all-around lackey, reincarnating into her body.

* FanDisservice: Mary Marvel's newfound [[EvilIsSexy evil sexiness]] becomes a lot less so when the reader learns her body's being driven by [[DirtyOldMan Desaad]].

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMutation: "ALL IS ONE IN DARKSEID," "ANTI-LIFE JUSTIFIES MY X," and the various other marketing slogans for Darkseid's dictatorship. "ANTI-LIFE JUSTIFIES MY HATRED!" in particular got a lot of mileage, especially in forum threads complaining about bad comics.

* VindicatedByHistory: When the series was originally released, it was [[MindScrew incredibly hard to follow]], due to the series' "channel flipping" method of storytelling, the [[ScheduleSlip Schedule Slip]] that affected the essential tie-in ''Superman Beyond 3D'', and significant [[ExecutiveMeddling Executive Meddling]], particularly in regards to [[CountdownToFinalCrisis Countdown to Final Crisis]]. Now that the series has been collected properly and the readership has had time to properly digest its contents, it's much more well regarded, with a number of readers considering it a modern classic. It's still considered divisive, though.

* CompleteMonster: {{Darkseid}}. At least Mandrakk has the excuse of being a vampire and thus a victim of TheCorruption; he chose Darkseid specifically because he was the worst and most dangerous thing in the universe and one most likely to bring about the destruction of reality. When he gets round to doing just that it's only because he's dying and it's little more than a giant "FUCK YOU" to the heroes and the rest of Creation for stopping him, a mixture of IfICantHaveYou and TakingYouWithMe on an omniversal scale. This is ''after'' he begun erasing TheEvilsOfFreeWill and nearly pulling a GrandTheftMe on the entire human race with the help of the Anti-Life Equation (so his billions of victims were in a state of soul-crushing misery to boot too).

He [[OffingTheOffspring murdered his heroic son]] Orion to permit himself to gain dominion over Earth. Once there, he enslaved the help minds of the Anti-Life Equation (so his billions everyone he could touch, turning them into savage parodies of victims were in a state of soul-crushing misery themselves, intending to boot too).as he said "murder their souls and take them to hell without end."
