* ActingForTwo[=/=]TalkingToHimself: In addition to voicing Darkseid, both Creator/FrankWelker and Michael Leon Wooley also voiced Kalibak as the same series (''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'' and ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'', respectively) as well.
* HeyItsThatVoice: So far in animation and video games, Darkseid's been voiced by:
** Creator/FrankWelker on ''WesternAnimation/SuperFriends'', using the same voice he used for [[WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget Dr. Claw]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers Soundwave]]. (Among Welker's many other roles on ''Super Friends'' was also [[TalkingToHimself Darkseid's son, Kalibak]]).
** MichaelIronside on ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''
*** Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson in the {{DCAU}}-based video game, ''Superman: Shadow of Apokolips''.
** Creator/DavidSobolov in ''Justice League Heroes''.
** Perry Brown in ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse''.
** Creator/AndreBraugher in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanApocalypse''.
** Michael Leon Wooley ([[Dsiney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog Louis the Alligator]], [[WesternAnimation/UglyAmericans Twayne]]) in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' (and like Welker before him, he also voiced Kalibak).
** Creator/SteveBlum in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueWar''.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Darkseid, I would have words with thee.]] The New Gods were originally conceived by Jack Kirby at Marvel for use in the Thor comics. Darkseid could have easily ended up being the Thor big bad.
** Well, not quite. They would have ''replaced'' the ''Thor'' comics. With a little something called [[KillEmAll Ragnarok]] happening first.
