** The title "Durarara" itself. Ryohgo Narita ran out of time and gave it a random, meaningless name, which his editor loved.

** Episode 16. Goodness, all that news about Saika sure sounds scary, right? I sure hope that...wait...wait, ''what''!? The "real" Saika is actually the slightly dull [[spoiler: ShrinkingViolet Anri Sonohara!? Wait... why is her mother ''[[FromBadToWorsecutting open her own stomach]]''!? ]]

Added DiffLines:

* MistakenFromBehind: Happens when Anri runs after a person who she thinks is her missing friend Mika, then calls out to her and takes her by the shoulder; when the person turns around and looks nothing like Mika, she apologizes and runs off in embarrassment. Subverted when we find out later that Anri ''wasn't'' mistaken, but Mika simply had plastic surgery to look like [[{{Psychopomp}} Celty's head]].

* {{Wimpification}}: Nearly every male character in the series gets subjected to this, but none more so than Izaya Orihara himself, who, in fanwork, transforms from an egotistical, [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] {{jerkass}}, borderline sociopath to a slobbering wanton mess whose vocabulary consists mainly of ''ah''s, ''nn''s and ''Sh-Shi...Shizu-chan...'' with a tilde at the end of every sentence.
** Done in-universe, too--a gaiden written by Ryohga has Kadota's gang watching Izaya and Shizuo fight, while Erika talks over the brawl and transforms it into a yaoi in which Izaya bottoms, successfully squicking out the whole group as well as Celty. HilarityEnsues.
