** Atticus does this himself from time to time, as shifting forms does not take his clothes with him, so he is nude when he shifts back into a human.



** This can also cause multiple versions of the same god. There's several Coyotes running around Arizona.

** This can also cause multiple versions of the same god. There's several Coyotes running around Arizona.Arizona, one for each of the native tribes, and Jesus mentions that the Christian God and the Jewish Yahweh are two separate beings.



** In ''Hammered'', Atticus and Leif rattle several pee-based puns back and forth.



** Actually something of a plot point in ''Hounded'': Emily, on the of witches in a local coven acts like a spoiled teenager despite being over ninety years old. Atticus uses her as an example to Granuaile, advising her to think long and hard before becoming a magic user, because it's a risk inherent in having an extended life.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold[=/=]JerkWithTheHeartOfAJerk: [[InformedAttribute Thor is supposedly the former]], not that you would know from looking, since the jerk part is all that is shown and talked about (and there is rather alot of it) which makes Thor come across as the latter despite the tales of him being one of the friendlier gods to humanity.

--> '''Zeus''': "She's not half bad."



* NominalHero: Atticus fights because ItsPersonal, or because his [[MoralityPet loved ones]] are threatened, or because of mutual interests and old deals... and occasionally to deal out GaiasVengeance, but he makes no claim to being a hero. He spent two thousand years running away from a confrontation with Aenghus Óg, only finally deciding to after Brighid and Flidais conspired to force his hand, and even then he might not have gone through with it if Aenghus hadn't opened up a portal to Hell.

Even ''that'' didn't do it; he only fought because opening the portal took so much power it killed a portion of the Earth outright.

* RageAgainstTheMentor / [[RageAgainstTheHeavens Heavens]]: Granuaile gets angry at Atticus after she meets the Tuatha Dé Danann because they're mostly assholes that don't meet her ideal of a god, and she believed that being a Druid would require her to worship them. Atticus is quick to assure her that just because he worships them doesn't mean she has to; the only extra-human entity she is beholden to is the Earth itself.
