* HarsherInHindsight:
** The sub-plot where they go door-to-door marking houses and collecting the bodies within.

* HilariousInHindsight: The first-edition cover (seen on the main page) depicts an angelic figure battling a demonic birdlike figure who could easily be a [[PettingZooPeople Taheen]] from the ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series. Though considering the ''Dark Tower'' mythos' strong ties to ''The Stand'', it might not be a coincidence...

Added DiffLines:

** Trash's skin is melting off from radiation poisoning when he arrives back in Vegas with a leaking nuke. It even sticks to his goggles.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece : The clothing, cars, and hairstyles set the mini-series firmly in 1994. Even some of the cast were known for their late 1980s/early 1990s popularity, but have since been much less active in their careers.
** The book itself was an Unintentional Period Piece before King re-released the book with some updated material. [[TechnologyMarchesOn It has since become one again.]]

* DracoInLeatherPants: Specifically, Creator/JameySheridan as Randall Flagg in the miniseries. There's a ''reason'' people wanted him back as Flagg in the [[DevelopmentHell never-to-be-made]] adaptation of ''Franchise/TheDarkTower''.

* CompleteMonster: Randall Flagg appears as a DarkMessiah in a [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]], plague-ravaged United States. Here he builds a new civilization in Las Vegas, calling to him those with penchants for destruction, power and fascism. Flagg has people publicly crucified for opposing or failing him, murders his pregnant girlfriend for enraging him, and plans on destroying the peaceful "Free Zone" settlement just so his civilization can be the dominant one. In ''Series/TheDarkTower'', set after the events of the novel, he also mentally takes credit for unleashing the plague and destroying civilisation in the first place (and seems quite proud of the accomplishment).

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: A lot of people said this about Molly Ringwald playing Frannie. A lot of others got varying degrees: Laura San Giacomo (Nadine) Corin Nemec (Harold) and Jamey Sheridan (Flagg).
