* CompleteMonster: [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] Mongul I confirms his position as such in this story, with his brutal beatdown of Wonder Woman, psychological torture of Superman, and general attitude. See the Franchise/{{Superman}} [[YMMV/{{Superman}} YMMV]] page for more details.
* FridgeHorror: The fact that Superman's dream world takes place back on Krypton is really a TearJerker if you think about it. The Black Mercy is said to show a person their greatest desire...doesn't that mean that, subconsciously, he really wishes he'd never come to Earth and met the people he knows here?
* MemeticMutation: "Burn."
** There's also a [[http://asset.soup.io/asset/1397/0784_6599.jpeg photoshopped image]] of the panel before that, with [[VisualPun Mongul holding a copy of]] ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion''.
* NightmareFuel: Jor-El as the chairman of the Sword of Rao and Mongul's heart's desire. Attenuated by the fact that it is AllJustADream.
