* CompleteMonster: Mater Tenebrarum as a leader of a cult of evil witches is along with her sisters a power-hungry and sadistic HumanoidAbomination who see themselves as Death and suffering Incarnate and have for centuries amassed power and great wealth leaving only death and misery in their wake. They see mere humans as dust since they are completely removed from humanity and take great joy in massacring them and care only for maintaining their own unholy existence. They are arguably among the best examples of female Dark Lords in fiction.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: One of the Spider-Man tie-in issues mentions that one of the side effects of the event is that the Daily Bugle's presses spontaneously started printing porn.



* HilariousInHindsight: Many, many years after resorting to this massive and hyped crossover, which came about because Jean Grey had been brought back and to clear the path for Cyclops and Grey's relationship and eventual marriage, Marvel then decides that in order to attract new generations of kids to their comics, their lead characters must all be unmarried and single (Spider-Man being the most notorious example of this policy), including Cyclops. Also, Jean Grey's increasing redundancy of story lines and character arcs lead Marvel to have her sentenced to the DroppedABridgeOnHim (not counting the "time-displaced teen").

* SpiritualAdaptation: ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy the Vampire Slayer]]'''s season-5 finale episode, "The Gift", is extremely similar in plot to Marvel's ''Inferno'', but subverts and inverts Marvel's storyline by (temporarily, of course) killing Buffy instead of Dawn Summers, who in several details is nearly an {{Expy}} of Madelyne Pryor. (The episode's title is also the same as an X-Men story in which Pryor is a main character.)

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Mater Tenebrarum, whose demise occurs due to an accident earlier in the film.]]
** NeverFoundTheBody, though. [[spoiler: Tenebrarum's death is far from clear, as she simply vanishes amid rising flames. She'd previously disappeared and reappeared in a mirror just a scene prior, and her transformation into Death presumably makes her more difficult to kill than Suspiriorum in the previous film.]]

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: a much more extreme example than ''Film/{{Suspiria}}'' in Mater Tenebrarum, whose demise occurs due to an accident earlier in the film.]]

She'd previously disappeared and reappeared in a mirror just a scene prior, and her transformation into Death presumably makes her more difficult to kill than Suspiriorum in the previous film.]] Then again her theme song which includes ominous Latin chanting in her honour says at the end "Matricidium Tenebrarum" which means "The Mother of Darkness is killed" and spoils the ending]]
