* NWordPrivileges[=/=]TWordEuphemism: The story "Noogie" begins with the characters introducing the issue by saying that they've been forbidden to use the "N-Word", and will use the word "Noogie" instead. The idea is later subverted when a poor black character repeatedly calls Quantum "noogie". Quantum demands to know how the man knows he's black, only to be told "You're '''black?''' S-Word!"

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Done when Woody first reads the "Dark Kitty" comic book, an {{Expy}} of MarvelComics' ComicBook/BlackPanther (also written by Christopher Priest at the time). Woody badmouths the book with criticisms that are entirely applicable to ''ComicBook/QuantumAndWoody''...

** In the comic, Woody (who is white) has the privilege, and uses it freely among the black friends he grew up with in Eric's absence.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Eric Henderson believes his best friend Woody abruptly left because of simmering racism, surfacing only once to leave him a rude note demanding a phone call. In reality, Woody left because he and his mother ran away from an abusive relationship and soon fell into poverty; the note was intended for Woody's father to finally call his long-abandoned son.

* ComplexityAddiction: Eric in spades. In a classic story, he's convinced that a woman was murdered as part of a great conspiracy and a red dot at the crime scene is blood. This leads him and Woody to go all over the world tracking down an arms dealer, asking why he killed her...and the man just asks "who?" When they get back, the detective in charge of the case notes that the red dot was ketchup (as Woody was saying all along) and the woman's husband confessed to killing her.
** Heading to a building, Eric insists on climbing up the roof with a grapple gun. Woody just uses the elevator.
** When Woody can't be found, Eric goes on a rampage against David Warrent, convinced he's behind his abduction. It turns out Woody just wasn't answering the phone. Warrent openly lampshades how Eric is obsessed with the idea someone ''has'' to be behind things like a comic book when in real life, "things just happen."
