* JediMindTrick: Wednesday claims to know a couple charms that work like this, he mostly uses them to [[ThePornomancer get laid]]. While helping with one of Wednesday's cons Shadow actually wills a police officer into believing his story. [[spoiler: And in the epilogue Shadow not only talks down a suicidal man, but alters his memories as well.]]

* ArtisticLicenseEconomics / LiteralMinded: The narration is dismissive of the term "Information Age" and insists that all of history could be accurately described as an Information Age since information has always been one of the most important resources. But most of what that term actually refers to is a rise in the ''availability'' of information, not its value (and where the rising value of the latter is merely symptomatic of the rise of the former).

** In one of Shadow's dreams, the people who had been hung in sacrifice to Odin smelled of the alcohol they had drunk beforehand. [[spoiler: Mr. Wednesday's corpse smelled of Jack Daniels, hinting that he was basically a sacrifice to himself - which is actually accurate to Myth/NorseMythology.]]

** Not made a big deal of at the time (because the person thinking it doesn't realize the significance), but [[spoiler: "It had amused [Mr World] to play chauffeur, in Kansas, after all"]] pretty much confirms the Foreshadowed identity of a major player in the game.

Shadow's story is continued in two novellas: ''Monarch of the Glenn'' (collected in ''Fragile Things'') and ''Black Dog'' (published in ''Trigger Warning''). Gaiman has said there is at least one more novella in Shadow's future and if "he survives that" he'll make a [[SequelHook return to America]]
