* TheNapoleon: Willie Dick, the 4'7" tall Tlingit cop, [[BadassBiker rides a 2/3 scale motorcycle]] and is generally described in terms that qualify him as a {{Badass}} of tall-tale proportions. Berko even {{Lampshades}} this, calling Dick "the emperor of the French."

* AlternateHistory: The point of divergence occurred in 1940, when Alaskan Delegate Anthony Diamond died in a car crash, thus allowing the US Congress to implement the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slattery_Report Slattery Report]] which opened Alaska to Jewish immigration. 4 million of the 6 million Jews who would have been killed in the Holocaust fled to Alaska, creating a vibrant and sprawling community centered around Sitka. Also, Germany was nuked in 1946 and Israel was destroyed after only 6 months during the first round of the ArabIsraeliWar. Other minor examples include the fact that OrsonWelles [[DifferentWorldDifferentMovies made his film]] of ''Literature/HeartOfDarkness''.
** Another major difference is a lengthy war between America and Cuba during the sixties.

* MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot: Murder is about the uppermost possible limit of a "minor" crime, but compared to [[spoiler:blowing up the al-Aqsa mosque, aka the current third-holiest site in Islam on the site of the former Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, as the first step of a plot to overthrow alternate-history Palestine]], it's not so bad after all. [[spoiler:It turns out it wasn't even the perpetrators of the plot who actually shot him, either; it was the victim (who was publicly thought to be a candidate for this generation's Messiah) trying to duck out of it via assisted suicide.]]
