** When describing Bianca, Harry makes it sound like there's only one type of vampire.

* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: [[spoiler:Bianca. Had she not attacked Harry when he came to her brothel, he would not have been bleeding later. This caused bloodlust in her, which led to her killing her lover/slave Paula, and this prompted her to initiate the chain of events that sparked the war between the White Council and the Red Court.]]

** Harry's narration directly addresses the reader once or twice, making the book sound like something he wrote and expected others to read. While this is implied to be the case in later books, he never uses that convention again.

Added DiffLines:

** Harry doesn't seem at all worried when Bob the Skull starts talking in front of Susan. In general, Harry doesn't make Bob out to be anything all that uncommon for a wizard to have, and definitely not like something he has to keep secret.
** Harry makes very few of his trademark pop culture references.

* UnskilledButStrong: [[spoiler: Victor Sells/]]The Shadowman is very strong at magic, but he's also [[spoiler: new to the gig and mostly self-taught.]] This bites him in the rear, as it's what causes the VillainBall moment below, as he doesn't know that [[spoiler: anyone who knows a demon's name can control it.]]

* BigEntrance: When Harry confronts Gentleman Johnny Marcone, he does so by blowing off the doors of his gentleman's club in a burst of magic (towards himself, protecting himself with a shield, so as to keep bystanders from getting hurt), then fireballing the jukebox into slag, and popping every lightbulb in the joint to make an impression. In a later story, Marcone has [[GenreSavvy remembered this]], and has the dramatic entry points of his establishments furnished with flimsy doors, so that when similar things happen, the shrapnel won't do any damage. The ''strategic'' entry points, on the other hand, are equipped [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy with reinforced steel]].

** Mentioned again seconds later, when Harry disrupts [[spoiler:Victor Sells']] concentration by shoulder-checking him, remarking that one of the major potential weaknesses of being a powerful wizard is that [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer sometimes wizards stop expecting threats from anything mundane]].
