* MeaningfulName: Subverted. John Wayne Gacy was a famous serial killer, and you might think John Wayne Cleaver is named after him - but you'd be wrong. He's actually named after JohnWayne the Western actor.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: He stalks, he maims, but patting dogs? Never. (To clarify, John recognizes animal abuse as a trait of sociopathy. Not wanting to hurt any animals, he avoids contact with them.)

* AxCrazy: Specifically averted. John makes a point of explaining that a random murder is different from a serial killing.

* AxCrazy: Specifically averted. John makes a point of explaining that a random murder is different from a serial killing. Although this is ultimately played with, considering that his murderous urges try to make him murder everyone he sees.

Hello, my [[MeaningfulName name]] is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wayne_Gacy John]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wayne_Glover Wayne]][[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cleaver_(knife) Cleaver]] and [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I am not a serial killer]]. However, I find [[SerialKiller serial killers]] to be fascinating. And I also have some similarities to serial killers. Like the fact that I share all three traits of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macdonald_triad Macdonald Triad]] like 95% of all other serial killers. I'm also fascinated by death and corpses, but since I'm a skilled mortician that works in the town mortuary what did you expect? I'm also fifteen years old, and I've been diagnosed as a sociopath. And I'm a [[LonersAreFreaks loner]] that has a [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant tough time]] making friends. It almost seems as if [[BecauseDestinySaysSo fate has decided]] that I should become a serial killer. Well ScrewDestiny, [[TitleDrop I am not a serial killer]]!

** Though the shift is explicetly foreshadowed when in the first quarter of the book, John casually says to the reader [[spoiler: that his sociopathy makes him a demon but NOT like the one he fought.]]

* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Too such a degree that it borders on UnreliableNarrator. For example John has much better social skills than he claims in the narration.

* FailOSuckyname: Fangoria's mostly positive review of this book and its sequels can't help but note how unrealistic and on-the-nose John's name is.
