* MortalityPhobia: Izaya's primary goal is to avoid the CessationOfExistence he believes will occur beyond death, and has driven him to form an extremely convoluted plan in attempt to prevent it: hypothesizing that [[HeadlessHorseman Dullahan]] are actually {{Valkyries}} left dormant on Earth, he decides to start a massive gang war in the hopes of creating a conflict large enough to wake up resident Dullahan Celty and hitch a ride with her to whatever afterlife she returns to. He flatly states that he doesn't care whether or not it's a hellish place filled with nothing but pain, just as long as it's not [[TheNothingAfterDeath nothing]]. Ironically, since ''{{Durarara}}'' and ''{{Baccano}}'' share a [[TheVerse 'verse]], there is a much simpler and more reliable (also arguably less insane) means for attaining {{Immortality}} that he just doesn't know about; which makes the brief appearance of [[spoiler: [[CharacterOverlap Isaac and Miria]]]], who are ''members of the Dollars no less'', much more hilarious.

* GasMaskLongcoat: Shingen wears a doctor's smock and a gas mask at all times whenever he visits Tokyo, due to his fears of Tokyo's air quality. He even wears his gas mask while showering, as Shinra discovers to his horror (he was trying to peep on Celty). His second wife and Shinra's step-mother, also a doctor, wears a smock and a gas mask as well when she visits, though in a form of GoggleDoNothing she wears it as more of a hat than for its intended purpose.

* GangBangers: Parodied in Episode 3, with a gangster who hams up all of the popular gang banger stereotypes and cliches. ''"Yo! Yo! [crotch grab] Yooooooooo! Hey man!!"'' Mikado and Kida [[LampshadeHanging comment]] on [[SoBadItsGood how strangely refreshing]] it is to see someone act in such a cliche stereotyped fashion.

Added DiffLines:

* CentralTheme: Love as something that motivates everyone, even if for some people it becomes rather cracked and twisted. Whether it's good or evil, selfish or selfless, sane or insane, one-sided or mutual, everybody's in love with someone or something, and even if you're a freak or an outcast there's probably someone out there capable of loving you.

** Naked woman? Okay. ''Headless'' naked woman? Er... Yeah, I can deal with that ([[FetishFuel and more]]). ''Headless'' naked woman ''being vivisected'' by a ''four year old'' when ''the anesthesia doesn't work''? '''Do not want!!!'''
