** The title is this. When asked by his editor for a title, the auhor had none in mind and spouted a few random syllables.

* ContinuityCameo: In episode 8, among the requests the blonde tourist has gathered, there's a doodle of two girls searching for Hanejima Yuuhei - the [[spoiler:Orihara]] twins from the novels. They actually [[LastEpisodeNewCharacter show up in the last episode/second OVA and don't have much plot importance]].
** There are occasional mentions of Yagiri Pharmaceuticals being at risk of being bought out by an American company called Nebula -- The same Nebula that constructed the [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Flying Pussyfoot]] in the 1930s.
** The Dollars website password? LightNovel/{{Baccano}}.
** [[spoiler:[[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} "Hey, Isaac..." "What is it, Miria?"]]]]
** There are also an instance of a clip from Baccano (specifically the fight between Ladd and the Rail Tracer atop a train) playing on a big-screen TV on the side of a building, and again, in the background of one shot was a poster of the Rail Tracer. Both of these instances cause a slight contradiction to the theory that both series are in the same continuity, since Baccano appears to be a TV show or movie in the Durarara era. However, given the existence of Isaac and Miria and Nebula, it could just be a non-fictional movie. But who really knows?
** Ennis from LightNovel/{{Baccano}} again shows up on a big screen in the background during the second OVA/episode 25.
** In volume 5, Shizuo briefly mentions that he once got into a fight with a [[HealingFactor very-difficult-to-injure]] foreigner. BonusMaterial suggests that the man in question is [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Nile]]
** In volume 8, Saki mentions meeting an American kid that has [[IdenticalStranger suspicious resemblance to Kasuka Heiwajima/Yuuhei Hanejima]]. The kid in question is Charon Walken, [[LightNovel/{{Baccano}} Chane Laforet]] and [[spoiler:Claire Stanfield]]'s great-grandson.

* RoleReprisal: [[Creator/MasayaOnosaka Isaac Dian]] and [[Creator/SayakaAoki Miria Harvent]] are the only characters to retain their original Japanese voice actors.



* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Invoked in Episode 6 by Togusa, who corrects the semi-conscious goon [[spoiler: when he calls the group "Dollar"]].
** The fansubbers sometimes subtitle the title as "Dullalalah", which is probably the intended translation seeing as the show is about a Dullahan. Artwork is often emblazoned with "DRRR", but fans tend to take it as a quicker way to refer to the series, and not its actual title proper.
*** Technically, ''DRRR!!'' '''would''' be the proper title, given that Narita decided the title the last minute after hearing someone flip through the pages of a book. Since symbols (letters) are made out of ''sounds'' in Japan, it would be デュラララ (lit. ''durarara''). In the west, however, it should be romanized as ''drr''[rrr]. It's even written as such in the second opening credits where all of the names are spelled in English. Durarara, however, is decidedly catchier and easier to say.
** There's also the Dullahan herself, over whom official materials are totally inconsistent. "Certy" appears late in the novels, she herself uses "Selty" on a computer in the anime's fourth episode, and Shinra has her as "Celty" in his cell phone address book in the sixth episode.
** The new opening now gives us the "correct" way to spell the characters names in English.

* RuleThirtyFourCreatorReactions: After getting bombarded by calls from his friends over his thoughts on yaoi (thanks to the [[FanPreferredCouple infamous Shizaya pairing]] showing up in ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei''), Narita finally made his stance known in a tweet: [[OneOfUs if he can femslash]] [[Manga/SayonaraZetsubouSensei Harumi/Chiri]], then the {{LightNovel/Durarara}} fans can ship whoever the hell they want to too.
