** If one only watches the first season of the anime, it could be forgiven to wonder if Izaya's coat is made of [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Uchiha-grade]] [[PlotArmor Reinforced Comeuppance-proof Plotanium]]; his character in its entirety is basically screwing with anyone and everyone ForTheEvulz from start to finish, and his total karmic backlash in the entire series is a black eye and stern talking-to from Simon at the end--nothing to indicate he won't continue ruining the main characters' and everyone else's lives for his own amusement. However, the novels and ''Durarara x2'' show that [[spoiler:things have been catching up to him lately. He has been stabbed (Volume 6 or episode 12 of ''Ketsu''), put in a public hospital where any of his many, MANY enemies could easily find him (Volume 7 or episode 1 of ''Ten''), kidnapped by a psychopathic TortureTechnician (Volume 9 or episode 8 of ''Ten''), and attacked by a possessed Sloan and Saika (Volume 10 or episode 12 of ''Ten''). Although Volume 11 confirms he's still alive, his plans are starting to unravel thanks to his hospital stay.]]

* 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.
