* OnlySaneMan
** Though he is also insane, Craven realises that Krishna has done all the damage he meant to and is now rebuilding the world as a paradise, so it makes no sense to fight him.
** Parodied when Reddin postulates that a single sane man [[BlatantLies like himself]], if he'd stayed with the project, might have convinced the authorities to [[WinsByDoingAbsolutelyNothing do nothing]] in the face of the Kishna threat. Only to have an ImmediateSelfContradiction when he talks of how beautiful the corpse-clogged Thames is and wants to go for a swim.

* SoleSurvivingScientist: TheNarrator, though in this case he's already given up, and is delivering an ApocalypticLog to an American version.


* AuthorFilibuster: Morrigan Lugus' speech about faith being a biological flaw, and major obstacle to technological civilizations' prosperity comes across as this.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Krishna is a fusion of super-genius AI, human DNA and molecular nanomachines. He's programmed to save India from its various domestic problems. He fulfils his mission...to apocalyptic effect.

* BodyHorror: This is Maitreya's specialty. His first act was even transforming dozens of humans into a musical instrument, and the rest into a biological space probe. He also turns what was likely the entire population of China into a massive, Cthulhu-like biological mecha that he marched against Krishna.

** Malak, panicking after being thrown into space by Krishna, extends his matter-destroying field to its maximum extent, [[spoiler:accidentally smashing the Moon into gravel in the process.]]
** Not quite Earth-shattering but certainly apocalyptic – Dajjal [[spoiler:detonates his internal power source, wiping out most of Eurasia in a single gigantic flash.]]
* EldritchAbomination: Morrigan Lugus. Physically it's a three-faced giant composed of the bodies of a trio of unfortunate astronauts fused with a mass of alien mushrooms. Mentally it's an entity beyond human comprehension whose mere presence warps the human mind. [[spoiler: Also, in the final issue Maitreya builds Cthulhu out of an untold amount of people and rides on its shoulder to do battle with Krishna.]]

** Finally, Dajjal (made in Iraq, but by the US using a top secret facility) is named after... the Muslim equivalent of TheAntichrist. Reddin calls out the Americans on using such a culturally offensive, ObviouslyEvil name, and [[TemptingFate what else could they expect happening]] given he had such a name.

* AbortedArc: A couple of Supergods are introduced with the [[ChekovsGun implication that they'll be important later]], but they get [[DroppedABridgeOnHim blown up]] rather unceremoniously and swept under the rug.

* RegionalRedecoration ''Supergod'' has a few cases of this. Unsurprising, considering it features an arms race involving [[PersonOfMassDestruction superpowered beings.]] When Pakistan attempts to nuke Krishina, he responds by sending the missiles back, turning Pakistan into a radioactive lava pit. Malak, Iran's attempt at creating an angel, generates [[WalkingWasteland a field that deconstructs all matter around himself.]] He destroys Tehran and makes his way to India, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. When Krishina throws him into space, he collides with the moon, causing it to [[DetonationMoon partially disintegrate.]] The effects this has on Earth are [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-mjIDbhMfZ34/VeVzWV4Mz1I/AAAAAAAPW-U/gyOPrkDTSSk/s1600/9_01.jpg catastrophic, to say the least.]] The crowning achievement, however, has to go to Dajjal. He suicide detonates his power source, causing an explosion that obliterates most of Eurasia.

* ExactWords: Krishna's mandate was supposed to be to protect India and save its environment, solving its many structural- and population-related issues. The good news was, that objective was successfully imprinted on it. The bad news is that "saving" India consisted of spoiler: wiping out nine-tenths of the population, thus relieving most of the pressure on its infrastructure. Krishna was saving ''India'', not necessarily ''all Indians''.
