* InformedAttribute: The Mechanical Hound isn't much like a hound at all. Its name simply refers to its use as an artificial bloodhound. Averted in the comic book adaptation (yes, there is one) where it actually does look like a robotic dog.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: The Firemen, especially in the movie, where it is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d with a NotSoDifferent directed at ''the audience''. Captain Beatty, in pointing out doctrine, comments: "If you are going to burn ''some'' books...you have to burn ''all'' the books!" He does so while holding up a copy of ''Literature/MeinKampf''.

--> "You're a hopeless romantic," said Faber. "It would be funny if it were not serious. It's not books you need, it's some of the things that once were in books. The same things could be in the 'parlor families' today. The same infinite detail and awareness could be projected through the radios and televisors but are not. No, no, it's not books at all you're looking for! Take it where you can find it, in old phonograph records, old motion pictures, and in old friends; look for it in nature and look for it in yourself. Books were only one type of receptacle where we stored a lot of things we were afraid we might forget. There is nothing magical in them at all. The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us."
* NoodleIncident: Clarisse's stories about her uncle, like the time he was arrested for being a pedestrian.
** That is actually a reference to Bradbury's 1951 short story "The Pedestrian", which he has described as being "the beginning" of ''Fahrenheit 451''.
