** It is alluded to in the first half, though as the main monsters featured in the story [[spoiler:were created in an alternate timeline]] it may not be an actual example. The only reference to a God or something related is a letter from Khrissy after the first half of Book Two, saying an Angel told her to send a cross necklace to David.

** Dave mentions several times in the chase with the Shadow Men that Amy is grabbing his arm, however Amy is missing her left hand (the one that would be closest to him when she's in the passenger seat). [[spoiler: This is because Amy has a ghost hand, which Dave can feel thanks to the Soy Sauce.]] The sequel offers another explanation: [[spoiler:Amy wasn't missing her hand during the events of the first book - she lost it through contact with Shadow Men and it was {{Ret Gone}}d]].

** John claims he "dick whipped" some guys during a fight, though Dave wonders briefly if he meant that he whipped them ''in'' the dick, or ''with his'' dick. Later, in the final chapter, he clarifies this and threatens to whip a HeroOfAnotherStory with his schlong.

* BrownNote: The prelude has John attempting to subdue a meat monster by playing "Here I Go Again" by {{Whitesnake}} on a boombox, with Dave comparing it to David's harp (which was once used as a tool of exorcism) in the Old Testament.

* NamesTheSame: Jennifer Lopez, in a BaitAndSwitch comment. Subverted with "Morgan Freeman", who John notes doesn't look, sound, or is even named anything like his namesake (his real last name is "Appleton"). John admits he has a habit of naming random people he comes across after famous celebrities, regardless of actual resemblance.[invoked]

When Monster Dave finds his original corpse, it stinks to high heaven, meaning he really DID shit his pants.]] ** Dave mentions several times in the chase with the Shadow Men that Amy is grabbing his arm, however Amy is missing her left hand (the one that would be closest to him when she's in the passenger seat).

* XMeetsY: ** Creator/StephenKing meets ''[[Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle Harold and Kumar]]''. ** For a nerdier comparison: TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu + TabletopGame/UnknownArmies[=/=]{{Toon}}. ** A review describes it as Creator/StephenKing meets Creator/DouglasAdams. ** Less so as the WorldOfWeirdness elements slowly slide into a more consistent cosmology, but Creator/HPLovecraft + UglyAmericans would also be accurate. ** ''{{Series/Supernatural}}'' meets ''Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas''. ** The sequel is sort of like if ''AConfederacyOfDunces'' was a terrifying zombie thriller. ** SamRaimi meets DavidLynch
