* BiTheWay: When Logan goes to the Glass House (think a spot where people meet for anonymous sex), he asses his options in the waiting room - including some "pert Irish lads."



* DeathsHourglass: The life clocks. They're yellow from age 0-6, blue from 7-13 (green in The Movie), red from 14-20, blink red-black-red-black on Lastday, and finally turn black when you hit 21.

[[spoiler: Ballard was able to start and run the Sanctuary movement because his life clock malfunctioned, keeping him permanently on red. He uses New You parlors and appropriated identities to keep hiding in plain sight as a Sandman.]]



* TeenageWasteland: The world is dotted with the remains of once-great cities that now house lawless roving gangs, some of whom are posessed of questionable sanity.

* ReactionaryFantasy: The implication was that, if those damn hippies got their way, they'd create a world where an eleven-year-old girl announces that she's sexually "skilled beyond all others", where fourteen is adulthood and everyone dies at twenty-one.

* DefectorFromParadise: The automated city is described as idyllic, wherein most residents live a life of leisure. However, to sustain the masses, the city has instituted a population cap called "Sleepshop" that terminates anyone over the age of 21. An underground society of "runners" seeks to subvert this age cap, which protagonist Logan 3 initially joins as TheMole before his HeelFaceTurn.

* AbnormalAmmo: The Guns carried by the DS Men are 6-chambered revolvers, where each chamber carries a different specialized round. The arsenal of a Sandman resembled the GreenArrow, with rounds named Tangler, Ripper, Nitro, Vapor, Needler, and the dreaded Homer.

* DeweyDefeatsTruman: The most obvious being that the Little War took place around the year 2000. The construction speed of the Crazy Horse monument recounted in the novel is also extremely optimistic, as in the real year of 2014 the monument is decades of work behind the way it is described by the end of the book's Little War.
