* HumanityIsInfectious: Mr. Grey quickly realizes this, as he is tempted several times (and nearly accepts) by Jonsey to abandon his mission to infect the world and simply enjoy experiencing all the human senses and emotions. While he refuses, by the end of the novel he gradually grows, speaks and acts more human.

** Possibly unintentional, but the name Mr. Gray seems like a reference to {{Literature/It}}, who's main alias was Bob Gray. It seems the film version further lampshades it by having Jonesy talk in a British Accent whenever Mr. Gray possesses him, as It was played by Creator/TimCurry.

And I'm here to kick some ass!"

* ShootTheFuelTank: how Henry blows up one of the two Hummers to kill the final shit-weasel. Double-subverted, since at first nothing happens and Henry even laments that in real life this kind of thing apparenty doesn't work the way it does in Hollywood movies, but then fuel tank explodes after all.
