** Grover himself is established pretty well in the above scene-he's [[ShrinkingViolet glumly taking the bullying from someone he could probably get to shove off if he really wanted]], and practically holding Percy in his seat to keep him from getting in trouble.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: This is the only series in the Riordanverse with MonochromeCasting at play. The main heroes are all implicitly white, and even Nico, an Italian, becomes increasingly pale due to time spent in the Underworld. All other minority characters are rather secondary at best. It wouldn't be until Literature/HeroesOfOlympus that Riordan started diversifying his casts.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy: It seems that most any legendary figure in the history of western civilization who did something important was a demigod: George Washington was the [[SpontaneousGeneration brainchild]] of Athena (and [[HistoricalInJoke it must have had something that helped the colonists win the American Revolutionary War]]), Harriet Tubman was a daughter of Hermes, and [[StupidBroomstickHitler Hitler was a son of Hades]].

* SceneryDissonance: The Type 1 version is brought up in ''The Lightning Thief''. When [[spoiler: his mother]] apparently dies, Percy reflects that it doesn't seem fair for the weather to be so nice and the scenery so idyllic. He feels like everything should be cold and grey.

* RealEventFictionalCause: It's revealed that UsefulNotes/WorldWarII was basically a case of the children of Zeus and Poseidon (part of the Allies) fighting against the children of Hades (part of the Axis). This was actually the reason that Zeus, Poseidon and Hades agreed not to have any more children, as they were too powerful. Zeus and Poseidon violated their agreement, however.
