** According to a scene in the TV series, the glossary itself is actually larger than the rest of the guide put together.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Used to prove that the universe is actually not populated at all. To whit - the universe is infinite. While there could be an infinite number of worlds, they can't all be inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is next to zero as makes no odds, so all those people out there are actually the result of a deranged imagination.

Added DiffLines:

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: When standing around in Slartibartfast's office, Arthur casually remarks he "seem to be having tremendous difficulty with [his] lifestyle". Through a freak of probability, a small wormhole momentarily passes through the room, carrying Arthur's words through time and space to where the heads of two armies are about to go to war over a grievous insult. As it turns out, "I seem to be having tremendous difficult with my lifestyle" is the most hideous insult in Vl'hurg language, kick-starting a long and bloody war that eventually results in both fleets being eaten by a small dog. All without Arthur ever knowing.


Added DiffLines:

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: The Guide proclaims to be definitively accurate, even though it has many glaring omissions, and contains much that is apocryphal. The Guides' creators eventually stated that the Guide ''was'' accurate, and it was reality that was getting it all wrong.

* CaptainOblivious:
The door's closed."

Ruler has no idea that he rules the Universe. This makes him perfect for the job. He also has no idea that his table can't talk to him.
* StupidNeutral
CloudCuckooLander: He has some very interesting thought patterns.
* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Downplayed. He's blonde, and he's very, very polite to his guests and his cat. However, he never does any overwhelming acts of good and immediately forgets about Zarniwoop when he leaves the shack.
* Manchild: He really doesn't know... ''Anything.'' He refuses to accept anything he can't perceive.
