* WellIntentionedExtremist: En Sabah Nur's plans are horrific in scope and devastation, yet he's not in it for the power. He genuinely buys his own sell about making the world a better place through ruthless Darwinism.

* WouldHurtAChild: His solution to end the ComicBook/{{Onslaught}} crisis was to kill Franklin Richards. Needless to say both Apocalypse's archenemy Cable and Franklin's mother the [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Invisible]] [[MamaBear Woman]] put a stop to that.

*** The name isn’t remotely correctly Arabic; it could be a list of three words (عين صباح نور) which would mean “eye morning light” which sounds really silly. It could also be, most likely, a garbled form of (صباح النور), pronounced roughly, sabaah an-nuur, literally meaning “morning of light,” but in actual context, Apocalypse’s name would then mean “good morning.” Both Sabaah and Nuur by themselves ARE names, but...usually women’s names. It sounds even sillier in the film adaptation, where they have modern Egyptians speaking in correct colloquial Egyptian Arabic...reciting a name over and over which is obviously supposed to be Arabic...but makes no grammatical sense at all.

* ArchEnemy: To Angel (because of the whole Archangel thing), Comicbook/{{Cable}} (because he's Apocalypse's prophesied enemy who's spent a lifetime trying to destroy him), and [[ComicBook/XMan Nate Grey]] (Cable's ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'' counterpart, engineered as a weapon against Apocalypse, who actually succeeded in killing his version of Apocalypse - or at least, leaving him for AoA!Magneto to rip in half). Technically the latter's grudge is against his version of Apocalypse, but his hatred for Apocalypse transfers over just fine.

** Apocalypse is feared by even high-tier supernatural monsters like [[Comicbook/TheTombofDracula Dracula]] - though Apocalypse has a certain wariness of Dracula in turn, since Dracula very nearly succeeded in killing him in the 1890s. [[ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} Deadpool's]] wife Shiklah tried to attack Evan (En Sabah Nur's clone) when she thought she saw the real deal reborn.'

** His video game appearances, on the other hand, usually have him playing second fiddle to ComicBook/{{Magneto}}. He's a generic mid-game BossBattle in both of the Sega Genesis [[VideoGame/XMen1993 X-Men]] [[VideoGame/XMen2CloneWars games]] and a BaitAndSwitchBoss in [[spoiler:''X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse'']].
