* FlipFlopOfGod: Originally Dan was very against referring to the Aberrations as [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], since he envisioned them as have different origins and designs than most vampires, with the only similarities being that they were once human, they eat people, and they ''may'' have similar powers like hypnotism and weakness to magic weapons. He even had Susan go out of her way to refer to the first Aberration she met as a "not-vampire" and explain in detail she he wasn't a vampire even if he seemed similar to one. Eventually though, Dan realized he shot himself in the foot trying too hard to differentiate the Aberrations from Vampires to the point where that's all fans ''could'' associate them with, and decided in-canon that everyone just refers to them as [[InsistentTerminology Vampires]] even if they are still technically something completely different.

* TechnologyMarchesOn: At Grace's birthday party (written in 2005), Sarah brings a camera, and mentions that it has a 512 Mb memory card. While a memory card that size isn't completely obsolete yet, it's still quite a small card by today's standards.

* ShrugOfGod: Some things have been left ambiguous. In the case of Grace's ethnicity, Dan has said that he'll never make a direct clarification, one of the stated reasons being that fans have posted theories they're happy with and he'd rather not say if they're wrong.

* WordOfGod: Dan Shive has often answered questions through Q&A comics. He also used to do so through the forum but has since ceased posting because of repetitive, predictable complaining. He has started answering questions via [[http://www.formspring.me/DanShive formspring]] but seems to be very selective about which questions he answers. On the other hand he [[http://twitter.com/#!/dantheshive tweets]] liberally about El Goonish Shive, often using the hashtag #EGS.
