- Badass Decay: Following the loss of Hal Jordan as his human anchor, the Spectre went on a rampage of Disproportionate Retribution before being manipulated by the new Eclipso (Jean Loring). Some of the decay was briefly undone after Crispus Allen became the new host, until the spirit was first subdued by a reawakened Cain, then left weakened at the hands of Mandrakk in Final Crisis. He became completely overcome by a Black Lantern ring in Blackest Night, and even after he regained control he couldn't do a thing to Nekron because he has no soul.
- Crowning Moment of Awesome: At the height of his power, the Anti-Monitor is about to grab (literally) the entire DCU in the palm of his hand, he sarcastically asks who dares to stand against him... the Spectre dares, giving the remaining heroes valuable time.
- Complete Monster: Those whom the Spectre kills usually deserve it. (But, see Throwaway Country in Main)
- High Octane Nightmare Fuel: Put this way. In the Silver Age, his entire shtick was killing people WITHOUT ACTUALLY KILLING THEM.
