* AGodAmI: Damien Darhk draws his power from death. Ergo, killing the entire world's population will effectively lead to this. By the end of the episode tens of thousands of people have died and it appears to already be starting.

* {{Jerkass}}: Although he is very polite about it and even tells Felicity he had hoped things would end differently, Mr. Denis is all too glad to finally oust Felicity from the company. Although, seeing how he doesn't know the world is facing Nuclear armageddon and Felicity can't tell him ''what'' is so important that she is neglecting the company, it's actually less a case of him being a flat-out Jerkass and more a case of....
* JerkassHasAPoint: While he's glad to be rid of Felicity, he ''does'' raise a valid point stating that Felicity's neglect of her duties as a CEO give him a valid reason to. He even tries to politely tell Felicity he isn't meant to be running her company early in the episode, and it's only after Felicity tells him that the board "can wait" that he throws her out. ''With the support of the board'', mind you.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Felicity refers to Murmur and Brick -- a Season 3 VillainOfTheWeek and mid-season ArcVillain, respectfully -- as "last year's specials."

* WhamEpisode: In addition to Alex being killed off by Anarky, this episode contains by far the largest body count of any individual ''Arrow'' episode to date, as tens of thousands of people are killed when the nuclear missile strikes Havenrock. To put that in perspective, in RealLife, the only time nuclear strikes have ever been deployed were in 1945 on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. If the same is true for the ''Franchise/{{Arrowverse}}'', then H.I.V.E. gave the world the third nuclear attack (the first by intercontinental ballistic missile), the only one in the 21st century, and the world's first use of nuclear terrorism. This could fundamentally change the world in many, many ways. [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking Oh, and Felicity is fired from Palmer Tech]].

** H.I.V.E. knows that Noah is the only person who can stop the nuclear armageddon, and so they quickly dispatch powerful agents to try and kill him.
** H.I.V.E. implanted a worm in Rubicon's code so that if it were hacked, they could track the location of the hack and send agents there.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledPlot: Genesis is basically the same as the Undertaking from Season 1 apart from its much larger scale and scope (nuking and then rebuilding the world, rather than leveling and rebuilding the the Glades). Malcolm even comments on the similarity.

** Though, on the other hand, directing to the ocean could possibly have killed ''more'' people. While no one lives in the ocean, it's possible a tsunami could be created that could devastate all nearby land.

Added DiffLines:

* WhamShot: The ICBM landing and creating a mushroom cloud, which then destroys Havenrock. And no, even though we don't see any people, this isn't just a nuclear test site which it may appear to be at first--this is a real, populated town that was utterly annihilated, and [[Recap/ArrowS4E8LegendsOfYesterday this time The Flash isn't around to turn back time]].

Added DiffLines:

* HopeSpot: When Felicity has the EurekaMoment to hack the GPS satellite to tamper with the missile's coordinates, you think they can just redirect it to the ocean, right? Unfortunately, it's too far on its descent by that point, and Monument Point isn't near the coast....
