The novels are formatted a little different than the animation as each book covers one major event. While they have not been written in chronological order, most books are best defined by the year they take place. Most books center on a single character or a small group of characters as a focal point for the story. In 2015, the light novels were licensed for an official Western release by Yen Press.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: It's pretty much impossible to talk about Claire Stanfield without spoiling a hell of a lot of the 1931/Grand Punk Railroad arc. Of course, he's also one of the most popular characters in the series, and the Railroad arc is one of the most popular arcs, so nearly any conversation on ''Baccano!'' invariably ''will'' result in massive spoilers. The fandom usually refers to him as [[spoiler:The Young Conductor]] before his reveal, and treats him like two different characters before and after.

* StockFootage: The entire VisualNovel based on the Great Punk Railroad arc for the NintendoDS revolves around this, despite its possibilities to create many scenarions not seen in the anime nor the novels, all of the illustrations contained in the game are just still-frames from any scene in the anime; the result is the possibility to ''read'' something completely new but not ''see'' anything different.

''Baccano!'' (Italian for "ruckus" or "commotion") originally started as a series of light novels (summarized [[Recap/{{Baccano}} here]]), and was adapted into a 13-episode anime (16 including the bonus episodes) in 2007. The anime adaptation is centered on three specific stories from the novels, taking place in 1930, 1931, and 1932 respectively, jumping around from one to the other quite frequently. Even scenes set in the same time period regularly appear out of order and overlap with each other, all adding up to a rather delicious [[AnachronicOrder non-linear storyline]] that is very rewarding if you keep your wits about you when watching. Each of these stories relates either directly or tangentially to the immortality formula and those individuals who have drunk of it, sharing some characters and having some plotlines intersect. Three extra episodes were released with the DVD, acting as an epilogue for each character and bringing the story full circle.

In 1931, disaster befalls the famed Flying Pussyfoot transcontinental train as it makes its journey from Chicago to New York. A terrorist/cult group known as the Lemures seek to use the train's passengers, including a US Senator's wife and daughter, as leverage to demand the release of their leader, Huey Laforet. Meanwhile, a gang of killers lead by the Russo family assassin Ladd Russo are trying to hold the train hostage to demand ransom from the train company. Caught in the middle is a group of delinquents originally attempting a train heist, who take it upon themselves to save the passengers. And amidst all this, a terrifying blood-red "monster" called the Rail Tracer has begun to murder people all over the train...

* InnocentCohabitation: At the end of ''The Grand Punk Station'', the Gandors mention that Firo and Ennis have been living together for about a year without so much as a close-mouthed kiss. Claire briefly wonders if [[AManIsNotAVirgin Firo's even human]] after hearing about it. This trope is also lampshaded by Nick, after Nice mentions that it's the first time that Jacuzzi had kissed her in the 10 years she's known him.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Subverted, as Claire Stanfield, one of the biggest badasses in the series, is a total virgin by his own admission -- though not exactly by ''choice'', mind you)
-->'''Claire:''' Don't say stupid things. I've never two-timed before, you know? Well, frankly, it's because I never dated a woman.

** {{Fingore}}: You have to wonder just what Ryohgo Narita has against fingers, given the number of times they're utterly maimed in this series.[[note]]33 fingers get sliced, mangled, crushed, or destroyed over the course of the 16 episode anime, an average of [[LudicrousPrecision 2.0625 fingers]] per episode, though there are only 8 instances of {{Fingore}}.[[/note]]
