* BadassBookworm: Clive himself. Creator/ChuckPalahniuk related a story where a teenage fan of Clive's waited in line at a book signing, then when he reached the front of the line, immediately cried "Clive, this is for you!" and slashed his own wrists with a razor blade. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Barker grabbed the kids' wrists and slammed them down against the books he'd left on the table, keeping the pressure on the wound long enough for paramedics to arrive and save the kid's life, then dutifully signed his autograph in the blood and delivered the book to the kid in the hospital.]]



* StraightGay: Barker has identified himself as gay since his late teens. One wouldn't really know that unless they read up on his biography.

* GenreDeconstruction: ''The Midnight Meat Train'', at least in its film incarnation, is a huge deconstruction of {{slasher movie}}s. Every single slasher movie trope used or referenced in it is either subverted or justified; the protagonists are responsible adults instead of rowdy teens, the authorities are useless because [[spoiler: they're working with the killer]], and the supernatural slasher turns out to be [[spoiler: upholding an AncientConspiracy to keep an EldritchAbomination out of our world]].
* GoodIsBoring: Jack Polo in ''The Yattering And Jack''. So much so that the Yattering is nearly driven insane trying to corrupt him. It's one of his funnier stories.

* ThatPoorCat: Barker really dislikes cats, and it shows. If a cat appears in a story (e.g. ''The Yattering and Jack''), it ''will'' meet a horribly gruesome demise.
