* GenreSavvy: Dexter often wonders how he gets suckered into half of the things that happen to him ([[spoiler: marriage, expensive caterers, cases, etc.]]) but he is far from DangerouslyGenreSavvy.

* TheStoic: Doakes and, to a lesser extent, Debra. Dexter himself, as he claims to feel no emotion.

* TooDumbToLive: Deke[[spoiler:, Debra's new partner;]] it's definitely bad to be one in a Dexter book. Deborah too shows some emotional GenreBlindness that almost gets everyone killed.

* HowUnscientific: The second and third books abandon the true-crime/psychological thriller format and explain that Dexter kills because he's possessed by a [[EldritchAbomination demon called the Dark Passenger]]. This is referenced in the television series in a metaphorical sense, rather than implying that Dexter is possessed by a literal dark entity. This deviation from the original narrative is a positive example of ExecutiveMeddling since it would have placed the show in the SciFiGhetto.
