* DeusExMachina: The process to make Superman mortal that his Mother insists is irreversible and there is no going back? Yeah, about that... (To be fair, there was no way they could foresee more Kryptonians coming to Earth to suck powers from.)

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The overlong scene of the villains using there super-breath to blow away the Metropolis civilians is meant to be both funny and horrifying, but even among the sight gags there's a very weird shot of a balding man wearing a red sparkly jacket being blown away on roller skates. It especially stands out in the Donner Cut, which otherwise removed the goofy slapstick moments from this scene.

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: General Zod is made of this. He's a titanic ham with lots of dialogue that could have been very painful, but he tends to come of as genuinely deranged and dangerous rather than goofy considering he has the godlike power to back up his threats. It also helps that he can bounce back and forth between LargeHam and dangerously understated almost at will, as his introductory scene shows.

** Superman realized that having three superpowered villains fighting him in the middle of Metropolis might get a little out of hand, and decided to draw them back to the Fortress where no innocents would get hurt. In the ContinuityReboot ''Film/ManOfSteel'', Superman's relative inexperience and General Zod's unhinged RoaringRampageOfRevenge ended up causing massive destruction and loads of innocents getting hurt or killed in Metropolis, which serves as the catalyst for many citizens, including Bruce Wayne, to hate him in the [[Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice actual sequel]].

** Superman realized that having three superpowered villains fighting him in the middle of Metropolis might get a little out of hand, and decided to draw them back to the Fortress where no innocents would get hurt. Cue ''Film/ManOfSteel'' In that movie's defense, Superman there was less experienced and he was fighting a complete psychopath hellbent on either killing himself or killing everyone around him. His lack of experience clearly worked against him in that fight and minimizing the damage. Except for the fact he just had Smallville trashed because he was too stupid to lead the villains to a neaby cornfield for that fight. As Tom Holbrook would say, "stupider than a bag of hammers".

* NightmareFuel: General Zod and his cohoots in this movie show just how terrifying it can be to have three practically invincible evil Kryptonians wrecking havoc on Earth.

***Well, some viewers can actually see (an remember) said scene as [[HeartwarmingMoments touching and poignant and heart-breaking]]; as Lois not being perfect is part of her charm.
