* CompleteMonster: Darkseid is dying, and so [[TakingYouWithMe as a final gesture]] wants to [[ApocalypseHow destroy the entire multiverse]] and [[OmnicidalManiac all life on it]]. He [[OffingTheOffspring murdered his heroic son]] Orion to permit himself 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."

* 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.]]

* {{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.
* NightmareFuel: The new nature of Darkseid, not to mention Mandrakk. Darkseid has transcended his physical form and become a nightmarish EldritchAbomination who's ''pulling reality down into the abyss'', and Mandrakk is an interdimensional vampire ''feeding on the death of reality''. Who's heavily implied to be ''the original Monitor.''

** NewMediaAreEvil: LaResistance publishes special editions of the Daily Planet to communicate. For some reason, Darkseid doesn't bother to have the Anti-Life Equation put on posters or anything while he has Justifier slaves burning books...
*** At that point, he already has over 3 billion people under his control, not counting all the meta humans and others I believe. Or the mortioccus virus. Basically, at that point, he may just not care since they can't stop him.



* SoCoolItsAwesome: The final battle, in which Superman, Nix Uotan, the Green Lantern Corps., the Zoo Crew, the Super Young Team, the armies of ''Heaven itself'', an army of alternate Supermen, and more team up to take down [[BigBad Mandrakk]].
* 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 [[ComicBook/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.

* BrokenBase: To be expected when you have Grant Morrison make an event comic. Is it a grand epic and the culmination of years of stories, paying tribute to great works, with an ultimate payoff well worth the wait? Or a barely decipherable mess that doesn't care if anyone gets lost, and Morrison's screwing up the DC Universe in a huge fashion while caring more about tying it into his ''[[ComicBook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Batman]]'' run?



* LesYay: The possessed Mary Marvel keeps coming on to ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' the more they fight, with Mary showing signs of being a CombatSadomasochist.
** [[spoiler: Actually, it was Desaad [[GrandTheftMe in Mary's body]]]].

** 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]].
