** There was a dagger Conan used in a later story that was "star metal" or somesuch, being the only weapon capable of cutting the iron body of a living statue he was fighting. Although undoubtedly cool, it was more a MacGuffin than weapon, as he only used it once.

* SpaceJews: The followers of Asura are a secretive group, persecuted by the followers of [[CrystalDragonJesus Mitra]] but protected by Conan because no one can prove any of the accusations against them (and who aid him in ''Hour of the Dragon'') might be this.
** Asura being ancient demigods of India, Hyborian Asura-followers would seem to be proto-Hindus. They speak of their ancestors as coming from Vendhya (India). This may be an example of DatedHistory. Howard didn't know it, probably just pulled the name "Asura" from an encyclopedia; but it is now known that the historical Asura deities began as good guys who developed a bad reputation, just as the Hyborian ones did.

* MurderByCremation: In "Hawks Over Shem", [[TheCaligula the mad king]] declares himself to be a god and demands a sacrifice of a hundred noble children. When the high priest objects and states the king is not a god but a madman, the king has him cast into the furnace in the statue of the old god that is used for sacrifices.

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: In "Hunter's Moon" in ''Savage Sword of Conan'' #171, Conan is nursed back to health in a village. He learns the village has a deal with the local lord who provided the land for the village. Each year, he takes a villager and turns them loose in the forest while he hunts them. If the villager ever makes it to the edge of the forest without being killed, the village will own its lands free and clear. Naturally Conan ends up being the 'prey' for this year and things end badly for the lord.
