* SillyReasonForWar: People tend to come up with these wherever Scarlet goes, even if the most violent thing to happen in that area in the past decade was a drunken bar fight. [[spoiler:Of course, since she's the anthropomorphic personification of War, the real reason the wars break out is because she's there.]]

* CannotTellALie: Aziraphale. It extends to his taxes, which he files so scrupulously he's been audited several times by government accountants made deeply suspicious by such accurate, honest accounting.

* TheChainOfHarm: Crowley takes full advantage of it to maximize his efforts in making human lives miserable: he calls it "thinking wide". Other, more traditional demons frown at this.

* ForgottenTrope: Newt's wretched Wasabi automobile is a borderline example of the forgotten "Japanese Technology is Shoddy" trope, which had already pretty much died out when the book was written. The evolution of the trope is lampshaded: the narration points out that if the Japanese used to be "fiendish automatons who copied everything from the West", and had now become "skilled and cunning engineers who would leave the West standing", there must have been a period of transition during which they were creating "innovative disasters the avoidance of which had made firms like Honda and Toyota what they are today" -- and it was during that period of transition that the Wasabi was designed.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Adam is Sanguine, Pepper is Choleric, Wensleydale is Melancholic, and Brian is Phlegmatic.
* FrenchCuisineIsHaughty: Famine's attempt to create a fast-non-food market in France is foiled by his agents being shot less than half an hour after they'd landed.

* ForgottenTrope: Newt's wretched Wasabi automobile is a borderline example of the forgotten "Japanese Technology is Shoddy" trope. ''Good Omens'' came out in 1990, when the trope had pretty much died out, but maybe his car is supposed to have gone through several owners over the decades.
