* ContinuityCameo: In episode 8, among the requests the blonde tourist has gathered, there's a doodle of two girls searching for Hanejima Yuuhei - the [[spoiler:Orihara]] twins from the novels. They actually [[LastEpisodeNewCharacter show up in the last episode/second OVA and don't have much plot importance]].
** There are occasional mentions of Yagiri Pharmaceuticals being at risk of being bought out by an American company called Nebula -- The same Nebula that constructed the [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Flying Pussyfoot]] in the 1930s.
** The Dollars website password? LightNovel/{{Baccano}}.
** [[spoiler:[[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} "Hey, Isaac..." "What is it, Miria?"]]]]
** There are also an instance of a clip from Baccano (specifically the fight between Ladd and the Rail Tracer atop a train) playing on a big-screen TV on the side of a building, and again, in the background of one shot was a poster of the Rail Tracer. Both of these instances cause a slight contradiction to the theory that both series are in the same continuity, since Baccano appears to be a TV show or movie in the Durarara era. However, given the existence of Isaac and Miria and Nebula, it could just be a non-fictional movie. But who really knows?
** Ennis from LightNovel/{{Baccano}} again shows up on a big screen in the background during the second OVA/episode 25.
** In volume 5, Shizuo briefly mentions that he once got into a fight with a [[HealingFactor very-difficult-to-injure]] foreigner. BonusMaterial suggests that the man in question is [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Nile]]
** In volume 8, Saki mentions meeting an American kid that has [[IdenticalStranger suspicious resemblance to Kasuka Heiwajima/Yuuhei Hanejima]]. The kid in question is Charon Walken, [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Chane Laforet]] and [[spoiler:Claire Stanfield]]'s great-grandson.

* [[HitMeDammit Hit Me, Dammit!]]: Shinra and Celty [[MyFistForgivesYou finish their argument in the twelfth episode with a mutual example]]. [[NonActionGuy Shinra's]] punch is just hard enough to knock off Celty's helmet. [[SuperStrength Celty's]] [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom sends Shinra into the wall]].

** Whatever happened on Celty and Shinra's day off, it involved Shooter as an antique carriage, a werewolf, and a coven of Vampire nuns. We only ever see glimpses of it.

* TooDumbToLive: Every gang in Ikebukuro has the same Rule #1: Don't screw with Izaya Orihara. However, the ''entire city'' also has Rule #0: DON'T SCREW WITH SHIZUO HEIWAJIMA. The gangs don't bother to tell their members the latter rule, since if you refuse to follow it, you're doing the gang a favor by getting yourself killed. More specific examples are below.
** The three guys kidnapping people [[spoiler: for Yagiri Pharmaceuticals]] are not very bright.
** As were a no name trio who insult Shizuo for his choice of warbrobe and spill soda all over his outfit, and not knowing who he is, Tom surmises that their excuse of being public school dropouts is correct before looking the other way.
** Horada of the Yellow Scarves.
** Verona, of the "would be dead if not for circumstances beyond their control" exception to the DeathTrope rule. She and Slon agree to kidnap a YakuzaPrincess, Akane. The Awakusu ambush them, {{Kneecapping}} Slon and disarming then knocking out Verona. It's stated outright the only reason they don't shoot her or torture her to death was her ArmsDealer father made a deal with them.

There's a guy who dresses like a bartender with [[SuperStrength inhuman strength]], a shady KnowledgeBroker, a genius BackAlleyDoctor, and a conspiracy about a pharmaceutical company involved in human trafficking. Then there's the "Dollars", a mysterious "colorless" gang whose members and activities are shrouded in secrecy.
