* TechnologyMarchesOn: Thanks to the 1990-1991 publication dates of most of the original novels, there's no real indication of the Internet and people are still being asked to send hardcopy faxes in to ZBC to enter competitions, rather e-mailing, texting or pressing buttons on their TV remotes. A Cavalry Trooper mentions having a CD in his Walkman. Then again, most of these technological advances hadn't really taken off even in 1995 - '95 was the year the Internet was commercialized, MP3 players didn't appear until 1996 and first-gen iPods didn't until 2001.

* DeepSouth: The main Op Agency in the the Southern States is called 'The Good Ole Boys,' and the most prevalent gangcults are the Klu Klux Klan and The Knights of The White Magnolia. The G.O.B are portrayed as being pretty much an entire organization of [[Film/LiveAndLetDie J.W Peppers]] and [[TheDukesOfHazzard Boss Hoggs]], chewing tobacco, lording it over "the coloured folks" and generally being a bunch of bigoted rednecks.

* LargeHam: The demon who possesses the computer systems of Fort Apache in ''Demon Download'' is one of these. As soon as it gets into a machine with a voicebox it begins very loudly spouting cliches and acting like a cross between Jack Torrance in Film/TheShining and Jack Nicholson as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker.
