* {{Badass}}: while he doesn't like to fight, he's a very big man and knows how to fight smart.



* ConsummateLiar: calls himself the best liar Shadow will ever meet. He was right.



* GrumpyOldMan: he's often grumpy or pretending to be cheerful and reveals himself to be deeply bitter about the fact that as a god who went out of style in a land that's bad for gods, he essentially has to live off scraps.



* LukeIAmYourFather: To Shadow

to:

* LukeIAmYourFather: To ShadowShadow.
* PetTheDog: not often, but he does occasionally get more sympathetic moments, such as when he seems to sincerely regret that he can't truly bring Laura back to life and [[spoiler: that she had to die in the first place.]] He also tells Shadow, [[spoiler: his son, that he's proud of him.]]



%%* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness

to:

%%* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: quite clearly loves words, something that goes with his mythical connections as a scribe, and telling the stories of people - though how true they are is in doubt, with Mr. Ibis suggesting that he does it for the love of the story.



* CatGirl: The original practically.

to:

* CatGirl: The original original, practically.



* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Into a cat, of course.

to:

course, and spends most of her time in that form.



* DropTheHammer: used to slaughter cattle with a sledgehammer.



* BigBeautifulWoman: as befits a fertility goddess.




to:

* NiceGirl: is kind to Shadow and to Horus alike, with her thoughts regarding the latter being mostly that he needs to be wrapped up and taken somewhere warm to babble his way back to sanity.
* StepfordSmiler: is flirty, cheerful and apparently happy. However, Wednesday quickly penetrates her façade and as the BreakTheCutie entry shows, she nearly breaks down in tears.


Added DiffLines:

* PowerOfTheSun: has this, though he forgot how to use it for a very long time.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: After drinking the water of time and a highly unpleasant process of getting rid of all the formaldehyde, maggots etc. inside her, she's back to her living self, though Loki notes that this is temporary.]]

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes

to:

%%* BewareTheNiceOnes* BewareTheNiceOnes: Shadow's a nice guy, but he's also a very large man who knows how to handle himself. Even outside of his physical prowess, Shadow [[spoiler:dismantles Wednesday and Loki's plans with a single awesome speech]].



%%* TheHero

to:

%%* TheHero* TheHero: The book's main protagonist [[spoiler:and the one who topples the plans of the BigBad]].



%%* TheStoic

to:

%%* TheStoic* TheStoic: Throughout the book, Shadow takes most of the crazy shit he sees with aplomb.

%%* BiTheWay

to:

%%* BiTheWay* BiTheWay: With the exception of her interest in Shadow and a hinted past with a boy in Lakeside, all of Sam's mentioned relationships are with women.



%%* LittleMissSnarker

to:

%%* LittleMissSnarker* LittleMissSnarker: Well evidenced in her interaction with Mr. Town and Mr. Road. Calling [[{{Jerkass}} Audrey]] a cunt is just icing.



%%* BackFromTheDead

to:

%%* BackFromTheDead* BackFromTheDead: Not in a nice way, though.



%%* CameBackWrong

to:

%%* CameBackWrong* CameBackWrong: She's not truly alive, she's left disconnected from the real world, and her body keeps decomposing.

to:

%%* TheLostLenore* TheLostLenore: Shadow misses her throughout the novel, and her resurrection does little to help that.



%%* OurZombiesAreDifferent

to:

%%* OurZombiesAreDifferent* OurZombiesAreDifferent: This one is self-aware and in control of her actions, but steadily rotting away.



%%* {{Otaku}}

to:

%%* {{Otaku}}* {{Jerkass}}: He's a rude, nasty little punk who likes to throw his weight around.
* NerdInEvilsHelmet: His efforts at being intimidating come across as rehearsed and poorly executed.
* {{Otaku}}: Beneath the attempts at a threatening demeanor, the Technical Boy is little more than a pathetic nerd.



%%* StepfordSmiler

to:

%%* StepfordSmiler* StepfordSmiler: Her personality resembles that of a passive-aggressive newscaster. It's about as genuine as a three-dollar bill.



%%* PunchclockVillain

to:

%%* PunchclockVillain* PunchClockVillain: They're not much more than jerks in suits, doing the bidding of a villainous god.



%%* EvilRedhead
* LouisCypher: Low-key Lyesmith. [[spoiler: Loki Liesmith]]

to:

%%* EvilRedhead
*
* EvilRedhead: TheDragon to [[spoiler:Wednesday]], and a redhead besides.

%%* WalkingSpoiler

to:

%%* WalkingSpoiler* WalkingSpoiler: Describing him as anything more than Shadow's former cellmate spoils a plot twist later in the book.
