* AnachronismStew: At one point, the titular ''T. rex'' comes across (and devours) a pack of ''Coelophysis'', which already went extinct in the early Jurassic. This is jarring given the text earlier named dinosaurs and other fauna that were appropriate for the time period and region ''T. rex'' lived in (except for ''Deinosuchus'', which died out 5 million years prior).

* CutLexLuthorACheck: Cited and strongly averted by Maddox. Instead of networking in prison to advance his criminal career, he used his contacts to make a dating site called Hard Time for women seeking convicts. He comments in other places that if he had known how easy it was to make money legitimately, he never would have bothered with crime.
