** The name "Technical Boy" alludes to the first paragraph in William Gibson's cyberpunk classic short story Johnny Mnemonic. [[note]]"If they think you're crude, go technical; if they think you're technical, go crude. I'm a very technical boy. So I decided to get as crude as possible. These days, though, you have to be pretty technical before you can even aspire to crudeness."[[/note]] The short story also had a film adaptation starring Keanu Reeves, suggesting that the Matrix-emulating Technical Boy may resemble that actor.

* AmbiguouslyBrown: Shadow is asked on several occasions what his ethnicity is, with other characters guessing him to be Hispanic, Native American, or part African American. Shadow himself has very little knowledge of his heritage, but his mother died of sickle-cell anemia and is described as dark, so she is almost certainly African-American; his father is [[spoiler:a Norse god]]. His skin colour is finally described as [[StarbucksSkinScale 'coffee and cream']] some 450 pages into the novel. Neil Gaiman [[ComicBookFantasyCasting sees him as]] Wrestling/TheRock.
