  • Chloe's appearances in the credits have been reduced while Lois' have increased. Zod features the least.
  • Cassidy Freeman is now changed from Right side, to the Left side.
  • Although the opening few seconds remain unchanged, the majority of pre-season 8 clips have been removed from the rest of the credits with only a few snippets from Season 5 remaining.
  • Despite adding many season 7 clips in the Season 8 credits, only one clip from Apocalypse remains this season.
  • This is the first time since the Season 4 opening credits that the credits haven't ended in scenes showing Kal-El flying in Season 4's Crusade. Instead, the final shot is of Clark standing on the bell-tower, looking down on Metropolis.
  • This is the fifth season in a row that the credits have opened with the same three clips: an asteroid from Season 3's Perry, the meteor storm from Season 4's Commencement, and then Clark saving a young boy in Commencement.
  • This year's credits feature scenes from 5 different season premiere's; Exile, Crusade, Arrival, Odyssey, and Savior.
  • This is the fourth season in a row to feature scenes from the Fortress of Solitude in the opening credits, however, this season it features more prominently than most. New scenes of the Fortress are seen this year from the Season 9 premiere, Savior.
  • The opening presents clips from all seasons, except Season 2.
