Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: Hal hearing the name of John Stewart and mistaking it for "[[Series/TheDailyShow the fake news guy]]". Nowadays, this sort of show has become so prolific that [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump one of the actual news networks was famously called "fake news".]]

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Atrocitus]], the BigBad of the first arc, is the leader of the Red Lantern Corps and [[AdaptationalVillainy lacks any of his comic book self's]] [[AntiHero more]] [[NeverHurtAnInnocent redeeming]] [[WellIntentionedExtremist qualities]]. While [[FreudianExcuse he lost his homeworld to the Manhunters]], his obsession with destroying the Guardians of the Universe [[NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist destroyed any noble intentions he may have had]]. Starting the Red Lantern Corps, Atrocitus [[{{Hypocrite}} caused many worlds to be caught in war]], resulting in millions of lives needlessly lost, in order to find new recruits. Seeing Razer's potential being blocked by the love for his wife, Illana, Atrocitus murders her, a fact he eventually reveals this with sadistic glee. Under his orders, the Red Lanterns lure several Frontier Lanterns into traps where they are murdered. When Hal Jordan and Kilowog escape with Frontier Lantern Shyir Rev to his homeworld, Atrocitus proclaims to the inhabitants they are "under the Red Lanterns' protection", which involves handing the Green Lanterns over or he will set off a bomb that will [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroy the planet]]. When they fight back, he allows the detonation to occur, though the people are saved, Shyir Rev sacrifices himself. Attempting to reach Oa to kill the Guardians, he hires Drusa to take control of Aya and board the Intercerptor, he critically injures Salaak and brutalizes Hal before being overpowered and defeated. He makes his return in "Love Is a Battlefield", where he's given a chance at freedom if he can defeat and kill Carol Ferris, [[RevengeByProxy agreeing]] when he learns she's the woman Hal loves. Hal intervenes, though Atrocitus indirectly murders the Star Sapphire Ghia'ta, promising Hal that Carol will be next. Referred to by Aya as the "champion of hate", Atrocitus demonstrates how [[HeWhoFightsMonsters rage and obsession makes one worse than those they fight]].

** The [[AIIsACrapshoot Anti-Monitor]], the next BigBad, is an {{omnicidal|Maniac}} machine obsessed with nothing less than the obliteration of everything in the universe that isn't himself. Built to be a knowledge-gathering robot, the Anti-Monitor quickly realized his superiority to all life in the cosmos, and was banished to another dimension soon after his proclamation to destroy everything in his path. The Anti-Monitor proceeded to turn trillions of planets in this alternate dimension into antimatter which he then consumed to make himself stronger, and, though making a deal with the last remaining planet's population to not consume them should they build him a portal back to his own dimension, the Anti-Monitor drained their sun of nearly all its life before he left, [[ExactWords ensuring that the planet would still die soon after he was gone]]. Once back in his home dimension, the Anti-Monitor reactivates the Manhunter robots across the universe and orders them to kill everything they see, and, when confronted by Hal Jordan, the Anti-Monitor tries to [[ForcedToWatch force him to watch]] as first his friends, then entire worlds, are consumed before him. Even when beaten, the Anti-Monitor desperately tries to strike a deal with [[spoiler: Aya]] to assist her in her plans to destroy reality itself to save his own hide. A megalomaniac who couldn't stand anything living except himself, the Anti-Monitor's narcissism was only matched by his petty {{sadis|t}}m.

* CompleteMonster: [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Atrocitus]], the BigBad of the first half of the series, is dedicated to the destruction of the Green Lantern Corps, having many of them murdered by his Red Lantern followers. First showing his ruthlessness in ordering a colony world full of innocent civilians destroyed, Atrocitus later revealed he had destroyed worlds to fill survivors with rage and recruit them as Red Lanterns. Unlike his comics counterpart, a TragicVillain at worst and an AntiHero at best, Atrocitus in the show delighted over the pain he caused innocents and took sadistic pleasure in his actions. Even though he himself had once lost a homeworld, he gloated over inflicting the same agony on others like Razer.
