* ForbiddenFruit: [[spoiler:The penultimate scene of his book, in a deliberate CallBack to the first scene (as well as the Literature/BookOfGenesis), depicts him stealing apples, indifferent to the impending punishment this will incur, because "there never was an apple, in Adam's opinion, that wasn't worth the trouble you got in for stealing it.]]

* BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil: They {{discuss|edTrope}} this, in a way, in one of their SeinfeldianConversations. They ultimately conclude that if they were to permanently defeat their rival gang, Greasy Johnson's Johnsonites, they'd probably end up fighting each other, and they conclude that even if they ''could'' defeat the Johnsonites, they wouldn't want to. The parallel to the actual looming Armageddon is clearly evident.

The parallel to the actual looming Armageddon is clearly evident.
* GoodCounterpart: They are this to the Horsemen of the Apocalypse (except arguably Adam, since the novel's Death, as in other works by both of its authors, isn't particularly ''evil''). Specifically, Adam corresponds to Death, Pepper to War, Wensleydale to Famine, and Brian to Pollution.
* NamedByDemocracy: They tried to give themselves a number of different names over the years, but everyone else always, invariably called them "The Them", so eventually they settled on it too.
* SeinfeldianConversation: They do this ''constantly'', though it's arguably subverted in that a lot of the seeming nonsense they're discussing ends up being real in the novel's setting. It's strongly implied that this is [[RealityWarper actually Adam's doing]] in most, if not all, cases.
* SpellMyNameWithAThe: It's "the Them", not "Them".

* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: He's the only really good demon shown. On the other hand, the narration also notes that most other demons resemble Crowley more than they resemble [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Hastur and Ligur]], who are the only two demons besides Crowley to feature significantly in the narrative.

* {{Determinator}}: He'll do whatever it takes to make his deliveries. Even if that includes travelling through a war zone -- [[spoiler or ''dying''.]]

* BunnyEarsLawyer: While, as mentioned below, her airheadedness results in spoiler:the Antichrist being misplaced for eleven years, she ultimately ends up being extremely competent at business, as described under DumbassNoMore. Her second appearance doesn't last long enough to make it clear if this is one specific area of competency for her or whether she's become more competent all around.
