Trivia: Smallville
  • Executive Meddling:
    • Of perhaps the most ironic kind. The producers of Smallville wanted the character of Bruce Wayne to appear. The owner of the current Batman film franchise refused. The irony is DC comics owns both characters and in the comic books both Superman and Batman crossover all of the time, and are, in fact, best friends. Batman finally appears in the Season 11 comics' second story arc.
    • Stephanie Brown was to appear as Batman's sidekick, Nightwing. But, of course, anyone familiar with DC knows that the higher ups hate her with a passion, so Barbara Gordon was used instead.
  • Fan Nickname: Lots. Here is a comprehensive list.
    • Early in the show's run, a few TV critics affectionately called it Dawson's Krypton.
    • Clark: The Big Dumb Alien or BDA, The Pretty.
    • Chloe: Google Girl, Chloogle, Tiny Blonde (common for fangirls), Chloiac (when possessed by Brainiac).
    • Lionel Luthor: The Magnificent Bastard, Lion-El (after his possession by Jor-El), St. Lionel (sarcastic reference to his unexplained Heel-Face Turn and being Easily Forgiven).
    • Lex: Cueball, The Sexy.
    • Jonathan: Bo Kent, or just "Bo".
    • Davis: Bloomesday
    • Lana: In the earliest seasons she was initially known as the Pink Princess because of her early wardrobe (and the fact that by season 3 the pinkness was arguably becoming a Running Gag until her wardrobe changed in Season 4). Super Kryptonite Woman or The Amazing Kryptonite Woman, after becoming walking kryptonite. Also known as the "squirrel".
    • Pete: Product Placement Pete, as his little bit of screentime was usually used to place products such as music from Lifehouse, the "Talon Mix" CD, and Stride Gum.
    • Lois: EDLois (short for Erica Durance), Nois ("No is", as in, "is not Lois").
    • The episode "Doomsday" is often nicknamed "Failsday" for its rather anticlimatic ending.
    • Angel of Vengeance / Andrea: Batchicka.
    • "Kick The Chloe" = Kick the Dog + Chloe Sullivan
    • Bryan Miller, one of the writers: The Butcher [1].
  • Friday Night Death Slot: Was moved to this in its second-to-last season, but remained one of The CW's top shows. Its second season in this slot was its last, but that was less due to time slot and more due to factors such as various contracts expiring and a general feeling that it was time to finally end it.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!/Hey, It's That Voice!
  • I Am Not Chloe Sullivan: Allison Mack expressed this sentiment on her blog.
  • I Knew It: Martha is the "Red Queen".

  • What Could Have Been: Allison Mack toyed with the idea of auditioning for Lana Lang before going for Chloe Sullivan. Incidentally, Allison is a green-eyed Caucasian just like traditional Lana while Kristen Kreuk/Smallville Lana is part-Chinese with dark eyes. While Allison is a natural blonde, the actress of Maxima also dyed her hair from gold to red for the role.
