* DracoInLeatherPants: Specifically, Jamey Sheridan 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''.

* 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).

* CompleteMonster: Randall Flagg appears as a DarkMessiah in a 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).

* CryForTheDevil: The things General Starkey does during the superflu outbreak are terrible but he is presented as a broadly sympathetic figure trying to cope with an absolutely impossible situation.

* CryForTheDevil: The things General Starkey does during the superflu outbreak are terrible but he is presented as a broadly sympathetic figure trying to cope with an absolutely impossible situation. In the novel his son-in-law, realizing that they're all doomed, commits suicide during the opening stages of the superflu epidemic, adding further to Starkey's anguish.

* ToughActToFollow: Averted for the most part in regards to casting (see WhatTheHellCastingAgency), but played straight with regards to Bill Fagerbakke as Tom Cullen. It's widely agreed by fans he fit the character perfectly and the upcoming adaption will have a hard time topping that.

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