Added DiffLines:

* AllBikersAreHellsAngels: Interesting enough, Tanner is ''[[LastOfHisKind the last]]'' Hell's Angel that exists (the rest were annihilated before the novel).

* BadassBiker
AntiHero: Tanner starts out as a NominalHero: he only agrees to deliver the vaccine in exchange for full pardon '''and''' under threat of death. During the travel, he slowly becomes noticeably nobler--and at the end he's a UnscrupulousHero, or maybe even a PragmaticHero.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Many dangers of the Damnation Alley are of this kind. They include giant gila monsters, huge bats, and [[GiantSpider giant spiders]].
* AwesomeMcCoolName: Hell Tanner. Yes, Hell is his given name--according to him, from his birth he was a bit of TheUnfavourite for his father.
* BadassBiker: Primarily Tanner, but also many bad guys.
* BikerBabe: Cornelia/Corny
Cornelia/Corny.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas / ThickerThanWater
ThickerThanWater: At the beginning of the book, Tanner, still very much TheSociopath, takes some pains to prevent his brother making the dangerous run through the wastelands. The means include the knowledge of hidden cache of money and PercussivePrevention.
* MeaningfulName
GiantSpider: Mutated spiders can be roughly the size of a human.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFastMeaningfulName: Hell Tanner.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Again, Hell Tanner. Plus, his fame is rather widespread, although many think that he have been killed during the Raid.

* SociopathicHeroSociopathicHero: Tanner, at least at first.

Inspired a [[Film/DamnationAlley 1977 film of the same name]], which doesn't have much in common apart from the name and a post-apocalyptic setting.

!!The novel contains examples of:

* AwesomeMcCoolName
* AfterTheEnd: ''Damnation Alley'' is steeped with post-apocalyptic visions, from the forlorn decaying towns to the very air which churns in constant turmoil, ripping apart anything rising up more than a couple of stories.

* PercussivePrevention: Hell gives his brother a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown, breaking some bones in the process, to prevent him making the run.
