* {{Oireland}}: Subverted with Hillman Hunter, [[spoiler:who, as the consummate salesman, intentionally plays up every last nostalgic Irish stereotype imaginable in order to earn his clients' trust. He even bases his act on Barry Fitzgerald's character from ''TheQuietMan'']]. ''Jaysus an' Begorrah.''

Almost at once, the gang is rescued by Galactic President Zaphod Beeblebrox, who, apparently, had been up to some ''very'' funny business since his last appearance. Now endebted to Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged, an aeons-old immortal, the President embarks on a quest to meet with the [[NorseMythology Nordic thunder-god Thor]] to fulfill his part of a very odd bargain. Meanwhile, Arthur Dent is elated, and the Vogons are very displeased, to find that the human species may yet live on, in the depths of a faraway dark nebula... (''[[ScareChord bohm bohm bohhhhm]]!!'')

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Hillman Hunter. Not ''corrupt'', per se, so much as ''sleazy.'' Bonus points for having created a phony space alien-related religion that is totally ''not'' {{Scientology}}. Could be argued it was more like the Heaven's Gate cult. The whole "being taken away by aliens in a spaceship" thing.

Made ''even worse than that'' when you remember that Douglas Adams was going to have a happy ending in book six (Before the Trope-Naming AuthorExistenceFailure)

* AllMythsAreTrue: Of the various beings interviewed for the new protector deity of Nano, among them are Thor (in a call back to the second book), [[GreekMythology Hecate]], and ''[[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]]'', among plenty of others. Norse mythology gets a lot of attention, appropriately.

* SexySoakedShirt:
-->''Arthur lay on his bunk looking up at the sky to where Fenchurch hovered on a cloud wearing the same dark jeans, high boots and sodden T-shirt that she wore when he had first seen her, passed out in the back of her arsehole brother’s car.\\
"Does the T-shirt have to be wet?" asked the computer.\\
"What? Oh, God, no. Sorry, of course not. I am such an idiot."\\
"Just trying to be accurate, I expect. I can portray this Fenchurch person naked, if you’d like."

''And Another Thing...'' is the sixth book in the [[TrilogyCreep increasingly inaccurately-named]] ''Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' trilogy. It's notable for being the first installment of the series not written by its creator, Creator/DouglasAdams, but by Creator/EoinColfer[[note]]although it's very difficult to tell at times and painfully easy at others[[/note]], author of the ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' series (not counting ''VideoGame/StarshipTitanic'', a tie-in novel written by Terry Jones of Creator/MontyPython fame). The book was released on October 12, 2009, to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the first book's original publication. Its storyline follows directly from where the fifth book, ''Literature/MostlyHarmless'', left off.

* AllTheMyriadWays: [[spoiler:Except for "our" versions, every single Arthur, Ford and Trilian in the multiverse is killed, apparently out of sheer spite on the part of the multiverse itself. Many of these are also {{Necro Non Sequitur}}s.]]

* ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability: The Guide apparently follows this rule, considering the fact its articles cover topics such as Vogon buttock pillows, the poor fitness of a particular staff writer who once practiced martial arts that were really all in his head and consequently got cocky and lost a bar fight to writers from another publication, Zaphod's pants-sprayer, reality TV, and various other seemingly useless topics. It seems to return frequently to the shortcomings of a particular staff writer who doesn't tend to check things aside from how much drink is in his glass and how froody things are. And yet the Earth barely merits a mention.
